THE WIRE NETTING QUESTION. MINISTERIAL ACTIVITY. SUPPLIES CALLED FOR. THE MESH DIFFICULTY. Considerable interest has been created throughout the country by the announce ment that the Government has called for tenders for the supply of 4000 miles of rabbit-proof wire netting, the tenders being due at the office of the Stores' Supply and Tender Board on May 17th.

OUR HORSE COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

OUR HORSE COLUMN. By ' Chllde Harold.' Few people are aware of the nutri ment contained in the fruit of the More ton Bay Fig-tree. One of the finest two-year-olds the writer has seen for many a day is a trotting bred colt reared in the Sydney Domain. Whilst the fig season was on this colt has eaten little else, as he has wandered from tree to tree, eating the fallen fruit . ravenously. He stands about 15.2 in height, and shows rare bone and substance. This writer had never heard the Moreton Bay Fig spoken of as a stock food until the owner of the colt under notice pointed him out as the sort that can be reared on figs. * * * Many farmers have started to improve their horse stock by putting their old time farm mares to, say, a pure-bred Clydesdale. Among the offspring may come a very fine animal, so fine in fact that the breeder is tempted to breed with him, and his* neighbours, perhaps, with out inquiring into his antecedants, avail themselves of the fine-looking animal. This is so ...

WORK OF THE LANDS COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

WORK OF THE LANDS COM MISSION. It is generally believed that the Lands Commission, which was adjourned sine die, will not meet again for the hearing of evidence, unless something transpires that is at present unexpected. It is op portune, therefore, to quote a few figures that have been compiled bv the secretary to the Commission, Mr. J. W. H. Houston. There have been 250 different persons examined as witnesses, at sittings which extended over 92 days. As many of these witnesses were recalled again and again, however, there were really 543 separate examinations. Mr. Edward Macfarlane, Under-Secretary for Lands, was in the witnesses' chair 32 times. Next to him on the list is Mr. Speight (secretary to the Coonamble Farmers' and Settlers' Association), who was examined on 22 different occasions. Mr. Peter Close was in the witness-box 14 times, the Premier and Mr. Crick each gave evidence 8 times, and Mr. W. N. Willis. 6 times. The evidence taken represents 26,970 questions and answers...

BERRY STUD FARM RECORDS. To the Editor "Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

BERRY STUD FARM RECORDS. To the Editor 'Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — In these days of agricultural edu cation by daily newspaper, it would seem that all we poor farmers have to do is to read up 'On the Land' or 'The Soil' at night, and practice what is there preach ed to us, and success is assured. Our Government might very well sack its 'ex- perts,' and give us an instalment of re trenchment. I have been wondering late t-yt niitiuti uicac cajjciis iciiu uicse learn ed articles, or whether they' get hold of the special representative and give him facts and figures to suit their particular fancy. When compiling those records of the imaginary yields of the cows at Berry Stud Farnii it would be of interest to know if Mr. O'Callaghan's chart was used, and, if so, how such discrepancies creep in? Taking the yields of two cows, a Hol stein and a Shorthorn, 'Margaratha,' a Holstein, is set down for a yield of io,ogolbs of milk, testing 3.2 butter fat, and a yield of 4o7lbs of butter for the...

THE RAILWAY, AND THE RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

THE RAILWAY, AND THE RABBITS. The Railway Commissioners claim that they do something towards keeping down the rabbits along the railway lines. As a rule the grass is well burnt down, and is not allowed to flourish too well, while their servants catch a good many rodents within the railway fences. Recently one of the men in the Commissioners' employ put down two traps within the boundary. These were in the shape of holes, into which the rabbits fell, and were unable to get put. In one month they caught ? S56 rabbits and 26 hares.

EDUCATIVE LECTURES. MR. SUTTON AT CUDGELLICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

EDUCATIVE LECTURES. MR. SUTTON AT CUDCELLICO. At the invitation of the local branch of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, Mr. Sutton, the manager of the Experi mental Farms at Cowra and Coolabah, ad dressed a crowded meeting of farmers and settlers on Wednesday night. Mr. James Knight briefly introduced the speaker, and thanked those present for having come, despite the rain, to hear Mr. Sutton. In the course of a lengthy address, Mr. Sutton pointed out the best means of com bating droughts, of preserving the rain fall in the earth, and the means of pro ducing best crops and grasses under the conditions. He first of all showed by simple experiments the best kinds of soil for wheat production, and the best meth ods of retaining the moisture. He stated that if great care is not taken the soil is likely to deteriorate quickly, and that it is only by scientific cultivation that such can be prevented. From his experi ments at Coolabah he has become greatly in favor of rotation of cr...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

RABBIT DESTRUCTION FUND. A wire from Bathurst says : — .There has .been for some months past a 'good deal of doubt in several districts throughout the State as to whether Pas tures Protection Boards could legally vote ratepayers' money towards the fund to be used for experiments in introducing a disease fatal to rabbits. The local' board has already donated ,£100, and promised another ,£100 if it should be required. On this subject the Bathurst Board has received a letter from the P.P. Boards' Council of Advice, conveying an intimation from 'the Undersecretary: for Lands that if any difficulty rose, the Gov ernment would introduce a Bill to indem-. ? nify tli'e 'boards'.''''''' ?'???; '??'?

A CURSE—ALIVE OR DEAD. STOCK EATING POISONED RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

A CURSE— ALIVE OR DEAD. STOCK EATING POISONED RABBITS. Mr. H. L. Lane, .secretary Walmer Branch, writes as follows : — Within the last few weeks cattle and sheep have become carnivorous, generally with fatal- results to themselves, and en tailing severe loss upon their owners. The rabbit, it appears, is to be a curse to us, not only when alive, but dead also. Sheep and cattle are hunting the pad docks over tor rabbit carcases, cnewmg them up with avidity as though enjoying some luscious morsel. A neighbouring station is reported to have suffered to the extent or .£700 worth, some valuable rams being included. Another owner has lost about 80 sheep, many of them studs; still another has lost two or three hun dred. On another station, again, eleven head of cattle have ? succumbed, and others about have suffered minor losses. The curious thing about it all is, that in no case that has come under my notice (and I have been on several of the places wher/j losses have taken place) has this...

INVERELL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

INVERELL SHOW. ( Frrirn Our f'nrrpsrmnrlrMit. ) The District Show is over, and I would like, to make a few remarks on the same. The new arrivals contributed largely to wards the Show, one having- thirteen cat tle and the. other twelve horse exhibits. Glad to see our President, Mr. Perry, nresent. Solid, hard-thinkinc men realise they have had a talk with a practical, level-headed worker, and not with a wind bag. The farm products were very badly re presented. Fancy two bags of chaff in a district like this! Then, again, the draught horse section had the poorest display of animals, especially mares, I ever saw on a show ground. The ground — a black soil flat — was in the state that only a badly-drained flat can get into after two inches of rain. The latrine accommodation was horrible. A drop of new blood on the Committee of this Association would be of great ad vantage to this district.

BUNNY IN LITHGOW DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

BUNNY IN LITHGOW DISTRICT. A wire from Lithgow says : — A report from O'Connell states that rabbit trap ping is still proceeding in that centre, and four carts run daily to Wambool station. The price is low, but rabbits are plentiful, and trappers make large hauls. Rabbit destruction at Duckmaloi goes on nightly. Rabbit poisoning has been carried on vigorously at uanbenang during the summer months. Each in habitant is now the possessor of a poison cart, and owing to dry weather and scar city of vegetation, rabbits have been tak ing baits well, with the result that should it rain in the near future the grass will have a chance to grow.

PIT TRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

PIT TRAPS. At the last meeting of the Dubbo P.P. Board, Rabbit Inspector Kelly reported that during the month he had inspected holdings on the Trangie, Dandaloo, and Farmdale districts, and found rabbits very numerous in patches everywhere, especi ally along the Bogan River, the principal methods of destruction being arsenic wa ter and poison cart with poisoned pollard. Pit traps in the netting were also doing good work, but arsenic water was the most effectual, as he had seen hundred of thousands dead around the tanks. There was a noticeabel decrease on some of the holdings when any extra efforts had been made. The good work done by the pit traps had been largely caused by the bush fires hav ing driven the rabbits about a good deal. Mr. Kelly also reported that there had been a considerable increase in the mile age of wire netting.

RABBITS FROM CROWN LANDS. RUIN A SETTLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906

RABBITS FROM CROWN LANDS. RUIN A SETTLER. A wire from Narrabri, Saturday, ?-' says : — Settlers have for years bitterly complain ed of the Crown's neglect to -destroy rab bits on its lands, while holders have, themselves been prosecuted for similar neglect. Here is a case which shows the of rain fell at Turrawan, on the immedi ate eastern boundary of the Pilliga Scrub, and there was at once a prolific growth of good grass. Mr. Michael Page, the hold er of 3000 acres on settlement lease, put 400 sheep on land which should have comfortably carried 2000. Not being in a position to net his land, rabbits by tens of thousands swarmed in from the Pilliga Scrubs adjoining, and ate the land off as clean as a board. Mr. Page says he is ruined, and will have to sell his stock. Had netting been .available under P.P. ''? Act terms, the rabbits could have been checked to a large extent.

THE GLEN INNES CONFERENCE. A wire from Glen Innes on Saturday says : — A Conference of members of the Glen Innes Pastures Protection Board and del egates from the various Farmers' and Settlers' Associations in the Armidale, Glen Innes, and Invercll districts, was held to-day. ! It was decided to strongly urge the Minister for Lands to bring forward some scheme of leasing or otherwise dispos ing of waste Crown lands, as it was found impossible to cope with the rabbit pest as long as the Government held lands which were the breeding grounds of nox ious animals, and the nursery of nox ious weeds. It was also resolved that delegates from the stocks boards, boards of advice, and branches of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, should wait upon the Minister in April. Failing a scheme of dealing with the '' waste Crown lands, it was urged that the Government be asked; to subsidise pas tures protection boards, in order that they may deal with the obnoxious weed. The Conference strongly p...
