"THE GREAT TAREE." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
"THE GREAT TAREE." Taree people are just now trying to figure out the identity of the en terprising performer who is at pre sent introducing the name of the town to English music-hall audien ces. Lately a district resident (says, the "Manning River Times") receiv ed a letter signed "Arthur Taree", and running as follows: "Dear Sir,-It will no doubt sur prise you to read the unusual request I am about to make. Five to seven years ago I was driving cattle be tween the Manning and the Tweed, and as far north as Brisbane. Owing to my musical knowledge, I received a few years ago an engagement on the English music halls. Through be ing so much in and around Taree, I chose ' that' name for ' my nom-de plume. Being as I am, an Australian born and bred, you cannot know how the bush and the people of my own land call me. Although I have now, practically speaking, most things needed to make life happy, I still look forward to the supreme happi ness of once more. seeing my own dear land again....
SEVEN AGRICULTURAL INSPECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
SEVEN AGRICULTURAL ; INSPECTORS. In addition to the five inspectors, and one assistant inspector, dealing with the purely agricultural affairs of the Department, the Minister for Agriculture has just secured the ser vices of a potato expert, who is . charged witli the special duty of at tending to ? tJie interests of the po tato-growers. In this connection, it may interest our readers to know that, although Victoria is very bad ly affected by the Irish blight in near ly, if not all her potato-growing dis tricts this year, all there lias so far been found in New South Wales dur ing the present season is a practical ly negligable quantity. The present prospects of the crop in the Mother State are very favourable. Satisfaction will never be obtained until the American-system of bulk handling is introduced, and Parlia ment should take the matter up strongly. As it is, things are going from bad to worse, and the end of it will be that half our crop will some day be left over, and swamped...
P. P. Boards. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
P. P. Boards. The secretary of the Pastures Pro tection Board for the Deniliquin dis trict, writes: - "When the Agricultural Depart ment issues progress stock returns for 1910, it will probably be, found there is a very large increase in the num ber of sheep, compared with the pre vious year. "The form now includes a column 'lambs dropped during year' before the 'total' column, and 95 per cent, of owners furnishing returns have added the total number of lambs drop ped in giving their total number of sheep as on December 31. "If the department must have the lambing returns, any practical man would say that the column for the purpose should be after 'total', and not before it; otherwise confusion must be caused." . At the meeting of the Goulburn P.P. Board, strong opposition was evinced at the proposal that those who enclosed their properties with rabbit-proof fences should not be ex empt from half the amount of. rates assessed. It was resolved at a meeting of the Kiama P.P. Board, to...
WEEVIL IN MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
WEEVIL IN MAIZE. Because some varieties of maize, such as that from Victoria and Tu mut, may. be kept for long periods, even two, three, or more years, with out developing Aveevil, while that from the North Coast barely lasts for a single season, it is argued in some quarters that it must be a question of climate. Some hazard the statement that the egg of the weevil must be deposited in the flow er of the maize, and that it develops as the corn matures. But we do not see how that helps to a solution of the problem as to why one grain is attacked and. the other left. The writer has seen Tumut maize, and North Coast maize side by side in jars, the former as sound and free as the day it Avas shelled, the other simply alive with the pest. The ex planation given of the apparent phe-. nomenon was that >one .was; a weeydl-&lt; resisting., maize, and that the other. Avas not, and it Avas further alleged that if the Aveevils Avere introduced into tlie Tumut jar they Avould not "at...
TEN-YEAR WEATHER CYCLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
TEN-YEAR WEATHER CYCLES. Mr. J. Sawyer, writing to the Dub bo "Liberal" on the subject of droughts, and the theory of cycles, is inclined to support a theory which he attributes to the late- Mr. H. E. . Russell, concerning an alternating ten year period; but, if we mistake not, Mr. Russell, in his famous paper on "Meteorological Periodicities," whose double polysyllabic name caused it to acquire additional fame, pinned his faith to a nineteen-year cycle. Mr. Sawyer, however, credits Mr. Russell with having propounded a cycle with a "ten-years' period, during which time the sun travels north, and its return of ten years. It was claimed that the ten years of the sun's north ern journey was a -period of scanty rainfall, and its return journey of ten years was a period of good rainfall, that is taking the average for the ten years in each case. The foregoing (says Mr. Sawyer) is supported by the following facts: 'That records for 75 year's' prove absolutely that such is the ; case, alth...
SECOND-HAND POTATO BAGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
SECOND-HAND POTATO BAGS. In reply to a communication from 'the Millthorpe branch of the F. and S. Association, Mr. II. G. L. Anderson, Under-Secretary, says-"With refer ence to the treatment of second-hand' "potato hags, I am directed by the Minister, to inform you that this de partment has no power under pre sent' legislation, to take the action recommended in the communication referred to. lie is, however, prepared to take any action in his power to prevent the introduction of second hand bags into clean districts, and I might point out that the regulations already provide that all potatoes re moved from one part of New South Wales to another part, must be pack ed in new bags. The Minister is of opinion that the growers can do more by co-operating with one another, than the. Govern ment could do with the most rigid regulations. He would suggest that the growers appeal to the storekeep ers in their district to introduce ho potatoes whatever from infected dis tricts, and to allow, n...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
THE WEATHER. On the whole, the general precipitation for the last week shows a gradu al getting back to the normal. Though in the metropolitan area this is not so evident, yet in the greater part of the State the Clerk of the .Weather has-a general slackening off to his credit, which will be duly appreciated after the extraordinary records since the advent of the new year. For the Central Tablelands, Katoomba, has had 31 inches of rain,, while the lowest record in that division was over 5 inches. Through out the western portion of the State and verging round to the Riverina, the, present conditions are an almost entire slackening-off, though coastal districts, from the Northern Tablelands to the South Coast are still' getting a considerable number of points.
