RED RANGE. Wire Netting,— Glen Innes Conference.— Resumed Areas.— Mall Service.— An- nual Meeting. The ordinary monthly meeting on 3rd inst. was largely attended, the President (W. Pettit) being in the chair. The Bcna-Wamboyne Branch resolu tions re wire netting were unanimously supported by the meeting, and the secre tary (M. Ryall) was instructed to forward the resolutions to the State Member, urg ing him to use his best endeavours to have them brought into effect. Messrs. W. Pettit and M. Ryall were selected to represent the branch at the Conference with the P.P. Board at Glen Innes. A notification was also received from the District Surveyor, stating that our application for the Resumed Area of Broadmeadows Holding to be made available for settlement would be con sidered on February 26th at Glen Innes. ' The President gave an explicit account of the hearing of the case, and informed the meeting that the Board had recom mended that portion of the land be made available. This subj...
THE INDIVIDUAL VALUE OF COWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
THE INDIVIDUAL VALUE OF COWS. Many inexperienced dairymen are con stantly running into serious error over the importance of the breeding of the animals they are about to use in their dairy herds, while among our most ex perienced dairymen the majority claim ?not superiority for one given breed of dairy animal over another,' but pin their faith on the best individuals of every 'breed, looking for dairy type alone to guide them in their selection. ; ? _. *.*'?' wi ? ? ' ? -? Take, for instance, four herds compns ]-' v ing— No. i, Ayrshires ; No/ 2,- Jerseys ; 4' - Wo. 3, Shorthorns; and No. 4,- Holsteins. ? The inexperienced dairyman will' invari j ably take sides in the battle of the breeds' by' concluding that, by selecting his fancy of any one of these breeds for dairy pur poses all the animals of that particular ' ? breed will be better; than even the indi , vidual members of any of the other three ^ «„ ' breeds. The experienced dairyman, on '\ the , other hand, will at once say '...
THE OVER-RUN IN BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
THE OVER-RUN IN BUTTER. There was a period in the history of the butter factory system in this State when the eye of every dairy farmer was turned upon the manufacture and market ing of every species of dairy produce ; and to investigate the factory principles, and to trace out their practical consequences in the interests of the destinies of the dairymen, was the great business of com mercial men, writers, and politicians. But of late years the smaller concerns have , been gradually absorbed by larger ones miles away from the preserves of the dairymen, whose influence in consequence has been declining in power, to the great advantage of those whose ambition it is to rule the many in the interests of the few. * * * Some months back the metropolitan press of this State was flooded with cor respondence on the 'over-run in butter.' So much had been said and written at that time on the subject that one would have thought that nothing short of « royal commission would have been held to t...

THE DAIRYMAN. THE GUERNSEY COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
THE DAIRYMAN. ' (By Frank McCaffrey.) THE GUERNSEY COW. Our chief dairy expert and some of our pressmen have so often told us that the Australian-born dairymen cannot possib ly fornv'anyihing like accurate opinions on the importance or otherwise of the Guernsey as a breed of cattle suitable to our Australian requirements, that one cannot attempt to criticise newspaper comments without running a serious risk of wholesale indiscriminate censure. However, -it is my intention to venture a few remarks on this much-lauded animal as she has been presented to us by the Department of Agriculture of this State. * * * In the columns of the 'Herald'' of re cent date there appears, under heading 'On the Land,'' a long article on the 'Guernsey'' and their potentialities. My next-door neighbour is a native of Guern sey, and he has a brother in that country .at the present time who is a breeder of Guernsey cattle. He has over and over again informed me that so far as he can see there is no real rep...
OUR HORSE COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
OUR HORSE COLUMN. By 'Childe Harold.'' A case of great importance to livery stable keepers was decided in the Sydney District Court last week, when M. Lev enthal sued M. II. Blake, a livery-stable keeper at Pymble, for the value of a horse killed. It appears Mr. Rosenthal took his horse to Mr. Blake's livery-stable on a Sunday, and engaged a buggy and harness. ' Whilst the horse was being hitched up, he became frightened, bolted, and was so severely hurt that it was found necessary to destroy him. * * * Mr. Levcnthal sued Mr. Blake for the value of the horse, alleging that it was owing to the negligence of the livery keeper's men that the accident occurred. Judge Backhouse ruled that the founda tion of the claim was a contract, and as a contract made on Sunday is illegal, according to a law made in the year 1677, which was still in force, he must find for defendant. This|relic of the dark ages must cut both ways; and it will come rath er as a shock to livery-stable keepers to find t...
OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. By B. B. Loel, M.iM.C.V.S. [Questions relating to the ailments or diseases of all farm stock will be ans wered for subscribers by Mr. B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S., through this col umn. A short clear statement of symp toms, addressed 'Veterinary Enquiry,' c/o the Editor, the 'Farmer and Set tler,' 84 Pitt-street, Sydney, is all that is necessary. The advice or informa tion will appear in the issue following-.] Fistulous Withers. One of the most unsatisfactory cases we have to deal with in veterinary science is a fistulous wither, and the am ateui had belter leave it to a qualified man to deal with after it has burrowed to any extent. I have known one animal to have been operated on six times for fistula, and then not be cured. (This was a thoroughbred mare.) Fistula is a variety of piped wound, and is caused by hard saddle trees or harness pinching and crushing the withers. It never oc curs in a welltinanaged stable, as it is simply a matter of looking after the sad...
HAY-MAKING REQUISITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
HAY-MAKING REQUISITES. Dug attention to protection from rain is included amongst hay-making requis ites. Much loss during .broken weather can be prevented by reasonable provision of rick sheets to protect the hay stacks while building, and even until, the stacks are finished off. There are 'few years when these coverings do not pay' for themselves in one season, that is3 where a stack shed has not already been pro vided. The lighter kinds arc the best, as they are not cumbersome to handle. Then, again, waggon sheets are quite, as necessary as rick sheets, for uOim-- 1n,n/ic of hay are put by. for the night rain may fall and do a good deal of damage. Handy sheets put over the loads save all risk of damage; Nothing helps forward more in haymak ing time than loading up waggons and carts at night and leaving them to be added to the stack in the early hours of morning before the hay is ready to move in the. field ; but such loads need covering up 'against possible rain. Old sheets that a...
THE LABOR PARTY AND THE SHIRES ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
THE LABOR PARTY AND THE SHIRES ACT, As the subject of local government is of general interest to our readers, the fol lowing extracts have been reprinted from a letter from one of our Executive Coun cillors, appearing in the Condobolin ''Lachlander ' : — ' ? ? ? Throughout the report (in intcrview) Mr. Kelly tries to make it ap pear' that his party opposed the Bill on ' account of the additional taxation in volved, whereas it is well known (and 'Hansard conclusively proves) that its opposition was based mainly on the two facts that the Bill remitted the land tax, ? and refused adult suffrage. The Labor Party naturally objected to the removal of the land tax, because it took away the existing basis on which it was hoped to establish a 'progressive' land tax; and the difficulties in the way of the realisa tion of their hopes in this direction are now immensely added to,, as they are well aware. In this connection ,thc refei'cnce to the subject in the. annual report of the Political La...
RUTHLESS ROBBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
RUTHLESS ROBBERS. A wire from Melbourne dated 21st inst. says : 'A remarkable discovery of the daring destruction of valuable cattle for the mere value of their hides was made by the police yesterday whilst investigat ing the reported loss of a bull, belonging to a Port Melbourne dairyman. The ani mal had been turned out to graze in Fishermen's Bend, and had disappeared. A very large area of the Bend is Crown land, and is leased by the Lands Depart ment to dairymen and others for grazing, cattle. Hundreds of horses and cattle are. as a ruie grazing at !? ishermen s Bend. The area was closely searched, and the carcases of four cattle, skinned and be headed, were first found at the loneliest part of the Bend, where the growth of bracken; fern, and grass is 'particularly thick. Two more dead cows, also skin ned, were some distance away. A little further along they found the' carcase of a fine young heifer, similarly treated — a total of seven valuable animals. The owners of the beasts ...

A NEW GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
A NEW GRASS. Philoris commuttata, a grass recently introduced into Victoria by Mr. A. Rob ertson, of Struan House, Narracoorte, was originally obtained from the Bota nical Gardens/ Queensland, and he has now specimens of it on his Struan House property six feet in height. He asserts that it ' is . superior in every way to even Paspalum dilitatum. It is said to be doing well in Gippsland. Cattle eat it greedily, and it has succulent and fattening properties. It grows well, both during winter and summer, ' and is drought resisting. A quadroon aboriginnl child, aged S months, died at West Narrabri; Upon examination it was discovered that the legs and lower portion of the body up to the abdomen had been recently scalded. , The.., mother- admitted that the. child had pulled; a jug of hot water over itself on the 14th, and tliat slvc had not consulted a doctor.

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) Bad Language. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
OLLA PODRIDA. (Politica! and Otherwise.; By Cypher. Bad Language. The recent extensive bush fires have been responsible for an enormous increase in the output of so-called bad language, which, let us hope, will not be maintained after the cause has passed away. Even the most reserved and least fluent of indi viduals, when he sees, after days and nights incessant struggle, all his efforts nullified by a passing whirlwind, will en velop a surprising unrestraint and fluency of expression, which proves that the natu ral gift of oratorv is not so uncommon as its rarity in political circles would lead one to suppose, and that in many cases it only needs a certain pitch of excitement to bring it to light. Apropos, a friend said to me the other day, 'Vou should have heard old Blank when the fire took his crop — his language was something bloomin' awful, and yet he professes to be religious !' Old Blank is a retired sea captain, and one can read ily imagine the wealth of emphatic ex pression...
CARRYING WHEAT IN BULK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
CARRYING WHEAT IN BULK. An English milling journal states that a large order for steel waggons has been placed in England by the Buenos Ayres and Pacific Railway. There are two types specified, one consisting of a number of high-sided waggons of 40 tons capacity, the other of 45 tons capacity, to be used expressly for the carriage of grain. These monster cars will have an internal area of 5000 cubic feet, are to be 13^ feet high from the rail level, 37 feet over the buffers, and 10 feet wide over all. The weight of each will be equal to 14 tons, approxi mately. In the roof there are to be three manholes for loading pur poses, and the sides of the car are . to be provided with suitable sliding doors for unloading. It is said that the train loads on this line of rail way ? often exceed 2000 tons. The result of this experiment in bulk waggon grain carriages is sure to be watched with interest by many of the chief grain-producing coun tries.

THE RABBIT INVASION AND THE REMEDY. THE BANE AND THE ANTIDOTE. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906
THE RABBIT INVASION AND THE REMEDY. THE BANE AND THE ANTIDOTE. By L. C. (continued). While discussing this ever-green ques tion of rabbit invasion, one is forced to turn aside from the main question to notice, from day to dav, the effusions of correspondents on this subject in the daily press. One old proverb sayeth, 'Coming events cast their shadows before' ; another, a straw will often indicate the direction of the wind. The latest indication we ob serve is contained in a letter to the 'S.M. Herald,' by no less a person than Mr. Arthur Griffith, M.L.A., under the head ing, 'Why do we not eat more rabbits.' The writer suggests a scheme for taking the embargo off rabbits, by which the people may be supplied with the live rab bit at a low price. Well, we think ,thcre would not be any great objection to this part of the scheme, as live rabbits are now fairly plentiful in most districts, and with proper care, , there should be no great danger through the probability of a few rabbits es...
