ATTUNGA. Annual Report. — Local Works. Owing to unfavourable weather, the an nual meeting on 10th instant was poorly attended. The secretary was instructed to write to the authorities concernirig the pound yard, approaches to the railway station, and public telephone. The annual report read as follows : — 'March. 10, 1906.

WALMER. Waking Up.— Wlr6 Netting.— Resolutions for Conference. This branch held their usual monthly meeting on the 8th inst. I am glad to say that we shall have several new members enrolled at our next meeting. Those who have hitherto held aloof are {beginning to recognise the benefits to be derived from working to gether in such an Association as this, and we think that before long all will be convinced that this a power working for the general good. The following is a summary of the principal business put through :— The two resolutions of the BenaWam boyne Branch re carriage of wire netting and Government vote to the P.P.

MERRIWA. The Need of Closer Settlement—Bunny's Uses. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

MERRIWA. The Need of Closer Settlement — Bunny's Uses. The local flour mill is running full time now under the new management. The saw-mill in conjunction with it is humming along also. It is a' pity that the old Merriwa Milling Company did not launch out and start one long ago, arid also become wheat buyers, instead of only gristers. Had they done so I fancy a different tale could be told to-day. But it is always thus. It requires new blood in a place to waken it up. The company, 1 near, are prepared to go on shares for wheat growing up to several thousands of acres, clearly proving that they are alive. If this district was doing its duty it would be supporting thousands of fami lies at the present time, instead of the paltry few it is. I say without fear of contradiction that the main road from .the Wappinguy to Crockey Creek, a distance of over fifty miles, passes through the finest class of country in New South Wales,, and that is simply held by five large estates. Only a few we...

SUNNYSIDE. The Tenterfield Show.—A Bright District Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

SUNNYSIDE. The Tenterfield Show.— A Bright District Outlook. In the first issue of your paper you in vited us to send you a weekly, or at least a fortnightly letter. 1 have been watch ing the succeeding issues to see if any one from Sunnyside would respond to that invitation, but as they have not as yet sent much, 1 may as well drop you a line, principally to tell you that Sunny side is still alive and, in a metaphorical sense, kicking. ?The Tenterfield Show is just now on, and Sunnyside has won the district tro pny ror tne tmra or rourtn time in suc cession. But to explain. Some five or six years ago the Tenterfield Agricultural Society, following the example of the Sydney and other large Societies, offered two prizes of, I think, ,£10 and ,£15 for the best district exhibit. It was only a small sum, but both Sunnyside and one other district near Tenterfield, called Luck's Gully, at once consented to com pete. That year Sunnyside won. Of course, when I say that I mean it was the Sun...

THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

THE GARDEN. A pleasing feature about many houses is the presence of dowering plants in pots. These, if unsightly, can always be rendered attractive by draping, or cover ing with an inexpensive material, such as crinkled tissue paper. Some use the Jap anese mats which are so effective, others possessing fancy bowls or pots place the pot containing the flowering plant within that receptacle, and any of these means will serve to transform the ugly or un sightly into a thing of beauty. Among the plants which answer well for house or table decoration are several, seed of which may with advantage be sown now. These are Primulas, Gloxinias, Chrevarias, etc. The first and last-named are easily raised in the bush-house, or where such a struc ture is not available a sheltered corner such as the angle of a close fence, the top being covered by a piece of sacking or hession, will answer admirably. * * * The Gloxinia requires more careful treatment. This undoubted king among flowering pot plants...

BACK FROM QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

BACK FROM QUEENSLAND. Considerable attention (says the Dubbo ' Liberal') has been directed to Queens land of late by the liberal terms offered to selectors by the Lands Department of that State, and many farmers have gone there to. seek homes they failed to find in the Southern and Eastern States. But the experience of Mr. P. Roberts, bro ther-in-law of Mr. Doel, of Balladoran, is that it would be folly for our farmer to go to that State. : The lands offered are in blocks of 320 acres, at Gayndah, on the Burnett, about 180, miles west of Mary borough! The land 'is of good enough quality, and the terms are good, but it is so heavily timbered that it would cost ful ly ,£3 an acre for clearing. Mr. Roberts also visited Idaraway, on the same line of railway as Maryborough, and found . similar conditions. He says emphatically that it is not a poor man's country, as it would take a large capital and large areas to enable the holders to see a return in a reasonable time. He considers the i...

MARKET REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

MARKET REPORTS. Wheat. — The market continues firm at 3/2 fur F.A.(J., for prime id. over this has been paid. Farmers still continue to sit on their stocks, and offerings from the country are on a very limited scale. Ac cording to the latest cable from London, the East Indian, with a cargo of 25.752 bags New South Wales wheat, sold at 30/ per quarter. This is equivalent to 3 - aboard Sydney, which is about the lowest price obtained this season. As this wheat must have been purchased at the opening of the season, when values were 3/4 to 3/5 per bushel, somebody must be facing a serious loss. .Medium has been bringing nearly as much as good wheat ; this is owing to the clearness of maize and other feed grains used for fowl feed. Manitoba. — Prime samples are bringing ?,/0 to 3/lo- Medium. 3/5 to 3/6. Some parcels are arriving in a very soft condi tion, and are already showing signs of weevil.

REDFERN PRODUCE MARKET. Chaff. — Supplies are coming forward very freely, and since the recent rains there has been an inclination to easiness.

NORTH CONDOBOLIN AND DERRIWONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

NORTH CONDOBOLIN AND DERRIWONC. A meeting was held on 24th Fberuary. Owing to the 'doing' that most of the members have had through the recent bush fires, the attendance was not an overflow one. The business consisted chiefly of two resolutions received from the BenaWam boyne Branch re wire netting supply and charges. These resolutions did not receive that attention which their spon cers had evidently expected, inasmucn as they were considered too limited in scope to meet the difficulties which settlers have to contend with. In the first place, it was considered that the mere question of railway freight upon netting was too trivial to trouble about, whilst the first cost of the article was such as to put it beyond the reach of those who would use it. However, the first resolution was agreed to. Regarding the second, there was no decision arrived at, it being the opinion of the members that it was immaterial to landholders whether the proposed vote of ,£50,000 was quad rupled or redu...

POULTRY FOR PROFIT [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 21 March 1906

POULTRY FOR PROFIT I A breed which has not yet obtained . I anything like the measure of popularity - S to which it is entitled by its intrinsic J merit, no less than by its handsome ap- J pearance, is the Andalusian. It is . a a member of the great Mediterranean fam- H ily, which comprises Minorcas, Spanish, I Leghorns, Anconas, and the subject of 9 this paragraph. H * * * B As in the case of the sister breeds ? mentioned, the rage for Show points has H to some extent depreciated the laying ? quality of the Andalusian. They are still, fl however, reckoned among- the best of the JH laying breeds, always remembering that fl this is not so much a matter of breed or I$J variety as of strain or family. Being of m large size, they are by no means despic- ? || able as table fowls. Nevertheless, the , || breed makes no headway in public esti- ?
