Branch Reports—continued. BROCKLESBY. CHIEFLY ABOUT THE RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
Branch Reports — continued. BR0CKLE8BY. CHIEFLY ABOUT THE RABBITS. At the meeting on Saturday, February 24th. there was a large attendance, the president (Mr. W. Schlig) in the chair. A letter was received from the General Secretary, asking the support of this branch to resolutions passed by the Bena and Wamboyne Branch re wire netting and the amount voted therefor. A letter from the Corowa Closer Settle ment League, inviting delegates to con ference, led to a deal of discussion as to the best way to bring about closer settle ment on the large estates, and it was generally considered that the prices ask ed by many for the land was far too high, considering the unimproved state of the country and the scarcity of timber. Messrs. W. Schlig and F. Howard were nominated as delegates to the Corowa conference. The rabbit question again cropped up, and it was unanimously decided to in struct the secretary to write to the Minis ter, and point out the fact that the Rabbit Board had now been i...

POULTRY FOR PROFIT Cood Egg-producers. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
POULTRY FOR PROFIT Good Egg-producers. One undoubted result of the laying competition will be the elimination from the list of profitable egg-producers of sev eral breeds hitherto popular. While it is ever true that there is no 'best' breed in the matter of egg-production, that is, from a numerical point of view, farseeing folk are looking- forward to the time when eggs will be sold by weight, and when that period arrives, the hen with the highest number of eggs per annum to her credit is not likely to be in it with the one producing a lower number, which, however, represent a larger weight. * * * An analysis has established the fact that, notwithstanding some difference in in the colour of the yolks of eggs, which, as everyone knows, varies from a pale yellow to a deep golden hue — there is practically no difference in their composi tion. There is, however, a decided differ ence in the food value of a small egg as compared with a large one. 'An egg is full of meat,' but the larger ...
A FEW HINTS FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
A FEW HINTS FROM AMERICA. Breeding poultry for fun is one thing; breeding it as a source of profit sufficient to furnish a living is quite another mat ter. If we are in the business for plea sure alone we can afford to spend money liberally, and to give our fowls every luxury they may want, and no account need be kept of the expense. We may have fine houses and expensive runs, and keep our poultry plant so that it is really an ornament to the place, says an Amer ican .uiuiuinj1, uui wjicji yuu iuuh iu yuui try for profit the case is different. You want good, comfortable houses — they are essential, and the more room you give fowls in their runs means just so much money saved in food and general care. But fine houses, with gable roofs and Queen Anne windows are entirely out of place, and of no more value to you than French plate mirrors would be. The hen does not know how to appreciate them, and it is better she should not. What she wants are warm, comfortable quar ters, and the chea...
FARMERS' AND SETTLERS' CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY, LIMITED. A SUCCESSFUL HALF-YEAR. Butter Boxes.—Controlling the Wheat Market. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
FARMERS' AND SETTLERS' GO OPERATIVE SOCIETY, LIMITED. A SUCCESSFUL HALF-YEAR. Butter Boxes. — Controlling the Wheat Market. It is particularly gratifying to Mr. Samuel J. Oxley, the general manager of the Farmers' and Settlers' Co-operative Society, Ltd., that he is able to report a thoroughly satisfactory half-year's business. If the company's operations go on expanding as they promise at pre sent, and Mr. Oxley gets the increased butter producers, it will not be long be fore his inherited deficiency is wiped out. Mr. Oxley, it may be explained, joined the organisation, which developed from the pioneer co-operative society in this State, at a time when, things did not look at all promising. The society had got into low water through the drought, and an unforutnate commercial trans action which led it into law, and the loss of a few thousands, and it fell to Mr. Oxley to do something to restore confidence in the institution. Mr. Oxley took the management in October, 1904, after fift...
ONE FOR "LANDHOLDER." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
ONE FOR 'LANDHOLDER.' By 'Wombat.' Just a word of enlightenment to your correspondent 'Landholder,' whose argu ments are certainly not on Socratic lines. 'Wombat' does not own a large estate; he owns a very small one — so small, in ,„ deed, that his land tax is paid in a 'silver cheque. He is not writing in the inter ests of any one section of landholders, but of all. He is not opposed to a fair and reasonable xaiiu litjiauuu, suui oo »e ii«yv. at the present time, buVhe is dead against the ' shilling-in-the-pound ' taxation, which would be legalised robbery, and a first step on the road to Utopia, where all lands and all the instruments of produc tion will be in the hand.s of the Labor 'bosses.' Had your correspondent fol lowed the evidence of the ' Lands Com mission, especially that portion dealing with the alienation of Crown lands dur ing the Crick regime, the light of know ledge might have dawned on his inert 'grey matter'— why there were '400 dis appointed applicants at the No...

LIVE STOCK REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 9th MARCH, 1906. AT FLEMINGTON. Sheep. — 19,513, including 2350 lambs, were yarded for the week.

MARKET REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
MARKET REPORTS. Wheat.— English advices show no im provement at Mark Lane, and the local markets continue exceedingly dull, and business is difficult to effect with any de gree of satisfaction to either buyer or seller. A slightly better enquiry was manifested from several quarters at the close of the week, but little business re sulted. The Melbourne and Adelaide markets show the same unprofitable con dition as obtains in Sydney, and quota tions at all three centres are nominally on a par. The recent rqins throughout Riverina will restrict deliveries to a large extent, as farmers will now turn their at tention to preparing for the new season, and on many farms all available teams will be occupied in ploughing and break ing up new land. A noticeable feature in connection with the Australasian wheat trade has been the large shipments from Victoria and South Australia as compared with New South Wales, as shown by the following sum mary of shipments for the season : — Equivalent From W...

GREEN BONE FOR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
GREEN BONE FOR FOOD. Green bone contains the natural juices, and is not only soluble, but is food. It contains lime for the shell of the egg, nitrogen for the white, a proportion of oil and fat, and also serves as grit. There is nothing which can approach it as food for poultry, so far as a combination of excellent materials for egg formation is concerned. Bear in mind, though, we cllSU UUIUIUI lU^UllllUUllU yiUUJUU - UUllU , there is quite a difference between green cut bone and ground bone. The one is ground, and the other is cut with knives. The bone contains adhering meat and combines flesh 'and bone, forming ? ele ments which make the complete chick. Groud bone becomes hard' and brittle, having lost the natural solvent by evap oration,, but green bone is readily dissolv ed when eaten, and is also the most econ omical of all foods. A pound of cut bone will be an excellent allowance for sixteen hens, or an ounce for each hen per day. This is cheaper than corn, and has the advanta...

THE GARDEN. CHEAP AND SHOWY FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 14 March 1906
THE GARDEN. CHEAP AND SHOWY FLOWERS. Last week we mentioned a few of the most popular and showy among the hardy annuals, but those noticed by no means exhaust the list. One of the com paratively recent introductions is Arctotis Grandis. The flowers are single white, inclining to lavender, of good size, and are produced in abundance. The petals have a delicate metallic sheen or lustre which is very striKing. 1 nougn lacKing perfume, they last a long time in water, and close tightly up as evening ap proaches, but unfailingly reopen with the appearance of daylight. * * * Yet another family not nearly so widely known as it deserves to be is the aster, of which a catalogue before us lists twenty varieties. We saw some of these charm ing flowers a few days since in a garden at Ashfield, and found them so attractive that, forgetting our manners, we leaned across the fence to admire them. They arc to be had in a wide range of colors, and of various habits of growth and size, and shape of bl...

TALLEWANG. SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
TALLEWANG. SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. The Tallewang Branch of the F. and .S. Association has referred the following resolution to the Executive for considera ftiori at next General Conference :— 'That thei Minister for Education be requested to have all the school holidays in the Western District amalgamated, and the I said holidays , to take place during1 the hottest months, with the exception of a fortnight at mid-winter, abolishing faster and Michaelmas holidays.' The reasons advanced for the desired change are that - the continually recurring holidays inter rupt the children's studies, and a week is of no service to a teacher in the West, to go by train for 'a holiday; also, that the parents of the children are entitled to .a say in the matter.
OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. By B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S. 'Grazier.'' — From your description the growth is a 'schirrus cord.' It is originally caused by an inflammation of the spermatic cord, and may be brought about by cutting the cord too low down, thus exposing it, and allow ing the wound to become infected with germs or become bruised. All influ ences favouring pus formation and in flammation in the operating wound fav our development of schirrous cord. Such are too short an incision, and incision too far to one side or the scrotum, both of which conditions impede drainage ; too small a wound also favours strangu lation of the cord and formation of schirrous cord. The cause of the bleeding is owing to the number of blood-vessels in the part, and of it growing again to it not all being cast out. To stop the bleeding the blood vessels should be ligatured with anti septic ligatures, or if blood-vessels are small, searing with a red-hot iron. We will be pleased to hear of any difficult case...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE COROWA CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906
CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE COROWA CONFERENCE. By Richard Arthur, M.L.A. At Corowa you are up against the greatest political problem in New South Wales to-day. Around Corowa lie mil lions of acres crying out to be wooed by the plough so that they may bring forth of their abundance, while in the district are hundreds of skilled and unwearied toilers, whose only prayer is that they shall be allowed to enter upon the land, and produce wealth from it. It is a case of land, land, everywhere, but not a square toot tor a man unless He is pre pared to pay ,£5 or £b for each acre of it. The fathers have eaten of sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge. When the previous generation threw away lightly the land of New South Wales by auction sales, by selection before survey, by the winking at open and flagrant dum mying, and squandered the millions that came rolling into the consolidated rev enue, they gave little thought to the day when their children would go hungering* for the patri...
