FOR THE FARMER AND SETTLER. (Per favor of the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

FOR THE FARMER AND SETTLER. (Per favor of the Editor.) Sir,— 'Wombat' is a hirsute animal that burrows in the ground; trained to fight the socialistic land tax now flying round. With much self-assurance, as if he were one of you, in his prophetic style he tells you what you'll do. You will love the purse-proud man who owns the big es tate, vote with him, be his friend, and his protecting mate; he who don't, or who dare vote for this socialistic tax, you will expel from the Farmers' Union — all he asks! For the farmers' sons who want land Vnti will nnf r-ovn ? 'U/nmKntD »„!!„ you there is land in abundance to be had everywhere. The great demand will raise the price of land, 'tis true; but what has that to do with 'Wombat,' or with you? Watson's cry makes the rich man quake with fear; he sees hate of ' the land monopolist in. the very air. , In dread of 'the, tax they' are selling 'their land, and going to town, and through you and Watson the price of land is thus kept down. The monop...

FOXES AS RABBIT EXTERMINATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

FOXES AS RABBIT EXTER MINATORS. Though somewhat paradoxical, it is nevertheless a fact that the much perse cuted fox is a boon to the man on the land in some quarters.' A number of landholders in certain parts of this dis trict are now disposed to view 'Rey- nard' as a benefactor rather than a bane, from the fact that they have proved him to be the implacable enemy of the rabbit. One farmer in a large way, who lives- in a rabbit-infested locality, assures us that he has to thank a family of foxes for. preserving a big proportion of his crop from the innumerable rabbits. The tarmer couldn't account tor the tact mat a certain paddock, some 50 acreSj was so well -preserved whilst other areas were almost eaten out. On cutting it, how ever^;; he discovered, in the midst of the good ' crop,., three burrows occupied by -foxes;1 and about a quarter of an acre of crop broken down,' and. the remains of some hundreds of rabbits strewn around. Our friend naturally -adduces from these facts that...

AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES. The scheme to extend the usefulness of the agricultural colleges and experimental farms, which was before the Cabinet last week, includes necessary additions to the buildings. It is proposed to expend about ,£6000 at Hawkesbury College to increase the accommodation for students. Two new wings are to be added, and it is proposed to erect a fruit cannery, to add to the electric lighting plant, and to pro vide a new dining-hall and kitchen. The present single-storey building used for sleeping rooms for the students is to be replaced by a two-storey brick structure, which will provide room for 70 new stud ents. At Wollongbar a water supply is to be provided ; and a piggery is to be ad ded to the Bathurst farm. At Cowra house accommodation is to be increased, and a tank provided. The accommoda tion at Wagga Wagga Experimental Farm at present is sufficient for 25 students, and it is proposed to increase this to meet the requirements of 50 students. The total expendi...

CAN THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY BE OVERDONE? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

CAN THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY BE OVERDONE? That it could be possible for an indus try which has developed so slowly as that of dairying to be quickly overdone would be to us a great surprise, inasmuch as the Australian butter is as yet only slightly * known on the London market. A gentleman has recently returned from a visit to England, and he declares that the great majority of the householders of the- United Kingdom and Ireland have never tasted such a product as Australian butter. How, then, is it possible, judging by recent developments, for Australia to overtake during the next decade at least, the increasing demands of England ?

TUBERCULOSIS IN CATTLE. REPORTED IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. MELBOURNE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

TUBERCULOSIS IN CATTLE. REPORTED IMPORTANT DIS COVERY. . . MELBOURNE. Monday. 'Tuberculosis in cattle and its possible cure by recent discoveries of. Professor von Behring at Berlin'' is the subject of a communication by the Agent-General to the Minister for Agriculture. Professor Behring's claim is that by the injection of tuberculose cattle are rendered immune from tuberculosis. The anti-toxin is cap able of transport, so that it could be used by farmers themselves. A further claim is made that young calves could be 'vac- cinated,' and that after treatment abso lutely pure milk could be obtained from cows whose milk previously contained tubercular bacilli. Mr. Taverner has written to the British Consul in Berlin, requesting a copy of the translation of Professor Behring's pa per' on the subject.

A GRADUATED LAND TAX. THE REASON WHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

A CRADUATED LAND TAX. THE REASON WHY. By Ajax. The crude material named land in the early ages was the common property of tribes, or of their kings. No man was inclined to delve at the forest to turn the land to the use of the plough. They remained in a state of barbarism, living by hunting, stealing, robbing, or making war on their neighbours. Even long af ter they were allotted small portions of land under some precarious tenure, they remained very indifferent improvers. This was the reason . why people were given full ownership of land, so that they would put 'it ??to good use. Unfortunately, although the object ot good use was obtained through land own ership, tlie system was abused by a few individuals obtaining the ownership of all the lands in. most countries, and as a consequence: leaving the many landless. This resulted in a revolution in France, which Revolution caused the lands of that country, .of Germany, and of most other countries, to be subdivided and sold in small l...

THE EASTER EXCURSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

THE EASTER EXCURSIONS. Sydney promises to be exceptionally lively during the forthcoming Easter holidays, owing to the large number' of attractions available, and the Railways anticipate heavy traffic by the excursion trains running a few days in advance. These excursions have been fixed so as to enable country people to have a few days' rest before the thick of the festi vities. The weather at this time of the year is, as a rule, delightful. The attractions in the metropolis em brace the great Royal Agricultural Show, which opens on the Wednesday before Good Friday, and which this year, judging by the number of entries re ceived, promises to eclipse all former shows. Then there are the Randwick races, including the Sydney Cup and the Doncaster events, which will also be well worth attending; whilst . there are to be daily band performances, moon light excursions, tram and local rides — so that country visitors will- have plenty of choice and splendid opportunities for conveniently ...

Dear Sir, — In reply to your comment upon the action of the Stockinbingal Branch of the Farmers' -? and Settlers' Association, I beg to inform you that at the annual meeting. held here on Saturday last it was decided, after considerable discussion, that the best in terests of the Association would not be served if the body identified itself with any political party or parties. The'una it do so, it would be entering upon a policy calculated to bring discord into the harmony which has hitherto prevailed, ..- and might possibly be the means of split ting the Association into sections, and ultimately of obscuring the main objects the body has distinctly endeavoured to keep in view, viz., die general welfare of all connected, with -. the farming and grazing industries.— Y.ours faithfully, F...

PRICKLY PEAR AND RABBITS. A Novel Application. A correspondent writes us from Moree as follows: — 'A novel application was made to the Moree Land Board at itslast sitting. A gentleman was before the Board for failing to comply with the con ditions requiring him to destroy prickly pear on his scrub lease, and he1 approach ed the Land Board and the P.P. Board with the suggestion that he might be allowed to fence small patches of the pear off with rabbit-nroof fencing-, and turn the rabbits into them. He argued that as the pear is about 95 per cent, of water, and as there would not be any grass or water in the fenced areas, the rabbits would have to eat the pear, and so erad icate it. What do your readers think1 of it?' ' ?
