TRIAL OF A FOUR-FURROW DISC PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

TRIAL OF A FOUR-FURROW DISC PLOUGH. A most successful field exhibition was held at Bacchus Marsh on the 5th hist., at Mr. F. Kerr's farm, of the four-furrow 'Sunbeam' Disc Plough. The condi tions under which the plough worked were somewhat difficult, as the land was exceedingly hard and the horses were very fresh. However, the ease with which the discs could be adjusted, and the way me iana was puivensea ana uie weecis buried was a revelation to those who wit nessed the trial. All the farmers who were present were unanimous in their ex pression of satisfaction, and a number of orders were booked. The 'Sunbeam' Disc Plough is manufactured by Mr. H. ?V. McKay at the Braybrook Implement Works.

THE DAIRYMAN. SOME STUD FARM RECORDS. HOW SHORT TESTS MISLEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

THE DAIRYMAN. ?| (By Frank McCaffrey.) I SOME STUD FARM RECORDS. j HOW SHORT TESTS MISLEAD. I Under the above interesting1 and attrac I tive headings, the 'Telegraph' recently I published some figures taken from the I Berry Stud Farm records for the express I purpose of shoeing an unsuspecting pub lic the superiority of these stud animals over the best herds of the average dairy farmer ; and at the- same time pointing out the great advantage of conducting these tests daily, so as to insure ^perfect accuracy in every detail. The following are the 'Telegraph's' exact words: — 'Of j the yields of every cow on the farm a 4 f, precise tally is kept from day to day.

A DROUGHT PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

A DROUGHT PICTURE. While millions of tons of water are perishing up vegetation on the low-lying lands on the Richmond, not far distant the absence of rain is causing far greater hardship, as this pen picture from a Braidwood paper shows : — 'It is pitiable to see the poor, poverty-stricken stock in some places scarcely able to crawl from want of food and water. All eyes of men and all creatures here below are directed upwards, scanning the heavens for the least sign of rain. There is no absence nf cin-ns. Tlip skv is tlarkfinp.fi occasion ally as though portending a flood, and not confined to the single cloud no bigger than a man's hand which gave assurance to the Israelitish prophet of the desired relief being at hand. ?

IRRIGATION.-III. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

IRRIGATION.— III. By Robert Gibson, Hay. In the United States of America, out of an entire area of 973 million acres com prising the Western, public land States and Territories, only about 7 Per, cent. of the area is regarded as deserts, while the ' aggregate area of desert, -woodland, and heavy for ests form a little over one-third of the area. The forests, the- area of which is about 75 million acres, not only marK tne greatest rainfall, but also indicate the lo cality from which come the principal streams. The. head waters of nearly all the rivers which give value to the lands are within forested regions. It is com monly known that the forests, to a cer tain extent, protect or even regulate the flow of these streams, and it 'ins bcea' urged that the largest and Ees? 'develop'* ment of the country requires t he conservS* tion of the forests along the hend w'iicrs. Forest conservation is practicable wlieS joined with .a proper cutting of the tim ber. Experience has shown that the r...

POTASH AND POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

POTASH AND POTATOES. ? For the last five years, at an agricul tural station in Germany, plots have been arranged on which potatoes have always received dressings of farmyard manure, and other plots on which no farmyard manure has been applied, but suitable quantities of mineral fertilisers, phos phoric . acid with potash, and potash alone, in order to compare the different result, has been applied. The results show that when no farmyard manure, or only moderate dressings of it, is used, it is essential to apply potash, and that the effect of omitting this constituent is more felt by the crop than the omission of either nitrogen or phosphoric acid. The experimenter concludes his report with the remark that the results obtained by his trials serve to confirm previous ex perience that the potato crop is particu larly grateful for liberal supplies of readily available potash. It has been decided to establish a but ter factory on co-operative lines at Tem ora. At a public meeting it was ...

MORE ABOUT RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

MORE ABOUT RAILWAYS. By John Flanagan. Sir, — In your issue of 7/3/06, I wrote to prove that inasmuch as Crown land and alienated lands have derived benefit from the construction of railways, each should contribute a portion of the betterment, and that as the Government receives in creased rent from Crown lands on ac count of railway construction, a portion of the rents should be set apart annually for a railway fund, and a part also from the land tax for the same fund. A Roval Commission should be ap pointed to ascertain how much the rail way fund is entitled to from these two sources. And no Government should be allowed to use one penny of such a fund except for the purpose of paying the debt on our present railways, or the consruc tion of new lines. This matter has been delayed too long already, for some landholders have sold out and carried this betterment money out of the country, and others will be doing the same in the future. Thus the nation as a whole loses funds that shoul...

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. A GRADUATED LAND TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES on Topical Subjects. A GRADUATED LAND TAX. By 'Mentor.' A prominent plank of the Labor plat form is a graduated land tax with the avowed object of bursting up large es tates. The question arises whether such a tax would operate exactly as its suppor ters suppose, ^d whether, in view of the present disposition of many landowners to subdivide their properties, it is really necessary. The cutting up of extensive holdings in order to pfovide for the small farmer is being found such a profitable ra process that in the near ruture there is '% likely to be ample opportunities for men Jf who really want to go upon the land. \ y£ ^^y tne Labor party should show such v# intense anxiety upon this question of land ^W settlement is hard to fathom, for so far as % the majority of that party are concerned, '%? they have never seemed desperately bent upon rural avocations. A job in town at the Government stroke is far more to their liking. The fact is, their minds dwell fondly ...

The Chairman said that this matter of the reserves had been before the P.P. Board, when a request was made that these, waste lands should be put upon the market. He thought that the branch f(. might support the request. -.''' Mr. J. Doyle moved a motion to .he * effect that the branch heartily agreed with the proposition from Eulomogo.- He considered that it was high time that these Crown lands were thrown open, instead of letting people go away to Queensland, as they were now doing.

Mr. i-uyuen aaas : 'inis is the way success, so marvellous, has been achieved in the army and navy of Japan. All honour to those who are willing1 to start thus' at the bottom ! We shall treat them kindly, and some day all our spare stock and animal products will not move, eastward to the! mighty British market, but an 'increas ing1 volume will find its way across the sea to their own country in the Orient. From that day they will be for many years: our best customers for breeding- stock.!!
