IN-AND-IN BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 January 1902
IN-AND-IN BREEDING. There is probably do one question connected with the breeding of stock that has received closer Btduy or more extended Jresearch than that which stands at the head of this article. The theory is sound beyond question that breeding in a long line of established merit, the particular characteristics sought become fixed in a measure proportioned to the length of the line of descent. Hence in case of a inale and female of high merit, and both of the same line of breeding, when coupled together the special merits of the family should be intensified in the off spring. This has been found to prove true in practice. The close breeding in a particular line has been practised more or less by all breeders who bare acquired dis tinction in building up a family of animals specially noted for merit in a particular direction. It was in tins way that the characteristic rich milk of certain families of Jerseys was fixed, and it is through the same line of breeding that the great ...

THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 January 1902
An advice from Chicago, dated August 23, reads as follows:—" What is said to be the largest apple deal on record in the United States was made yesterday in the sale of the ELaaeltlne apple eroo in Green country, Missouri, for $51,000 (£11,250) The sale includes the apples oii 1,000 acres of orchard, which are estimated to harvest 100,000 barrels. Four pro duce. firms are the purchasers of the crop. A remedy for the very fatal foot and mouth disease of sheep is being tested in France. It is a 53 per cent solution of chromic acid, chemically pure, which is applied as a caustic to the sore, and give a rapid and certain cure. Dr Jarre, the discoverer, claims to have used the remedy with success in 1,500 cases in two years. The cleaning of cows by using the brush aud currycomb on them, as well as giving them a scrubbing and rinsing with a sprayer, may appear as a waste of labour to those who have never tried the plan, but if 'cows were so treated the result would be more milk and butter,...

THE FARMER AND UNIONISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 11 January 1902
THE FARMER AND UNIONISM. TO THB EDITOR. Sir,—Onion ii strength, and a power of atrength in any land when the framework of auoh unionism is founded on the principles of liberty, justice, and righteousness. A union ism that may be organised for ulterior pur poses to the above can only be discarded and branded as dangerous. In these times of advanced and liberal thought among the English-speaking races, we cannot shut our eyes, nor close our ears, to the fact that the trend of civilisation is towards combination, or consolidating our energies and enterprise. In science, industry, or prodnction, in all branches of onr com mercial, agricultural, or political spheres of our people unity seems to be the watchword of our times; and when Australasia pro claimed herself in favour of Federation it was undoubtedly only another demonstration and proof of our desire to pull together, and to enjoy-the benefits which must follow so great and mighty a union. At the present time, to some of the onloo...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 11 January 1902
CORRESPONDENCE. TO TUB BDITOB. Sir,—In your issue of the 21st December you published a paragraph under the heading of " Strange Proceedings." Your informant was obviously misinformed about the matter, and when you hear the plain, unvarnished facts of the case I feel sure that you will, in bare justice to the local constable, make the amende honourable by publishing them. In the first place the constable did not notify the magistrate that he was going to bring the case before him. The magistrate notified the constable to meet him. Ho one offered a £1 to either the clerk of the court or the con stable until after the receipt of the wire from the magistrate, stating that he would return to try the case in Court. The constable was acting under orders from a superior in the affair, and it is scarcely fair that the onus of blame should fall upon his shoulders. If the magistrate made a blunder he alone should bear the blame. Country magistrates have done strange things before to-day, but I...
