WHEAT SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 December 1915
MEAT SCHEME. The Minister foi' Agriculfcare took advantage of the opportunity afford ed by questions in the Legislative Assembly jto explain the latest devel opments in the wheat-handling scheme. Mr Gi'ahana said that it had been decided that when a farmer deliver ed wheat at a station or siding, he would receive a warrant entitling him to 2/6 per bushel net for the wheat. The wheat, when delivered to the station or siding, would then be carried over the railways and placed abroad: the ship, under the terms of the scheme. The payment of 2/6 per bushel to the farmer for wheat delivered on the sidings would be equivalent to a little over 3/ when charges for freight and handl ing were reckoned. Every farmer / no matter'inhere situated, would be paid 2/6 per bushel for his wheat, and the warrants which would be handed to him would entitle him to receive from the bank 2/6 for every bushel of wheat he delivered. Re garding the interest to be charged the farmers for mouey so advanced, he h...

EUIUNGERIE. —o (From ®ur Correspondent.) Rain—Light showers started on Tuesday night, and continued on Wednesday. Up to 3 o'clock on Wednesday 12 points of rain had fallen. Stock—-Several hundred sheep from the south arrived heie last week in very poor condition. Local stock are all in good nick. Bullocks are in good order, even those comprising teams would kill well.

Several district farmers have had good yields; indeed, most of them average over 18 bushels. Mr. Grif fiths, whose cropapened out at 11 bags to the acre, had the bad lack to lose about 2 bags to the acre by hail stone visitation. Others with tip top crops, as Mr. Bewick Brown and Mr. Vandemaal, had wheat shaken out by wind, and so have a reduced average.

But some of the Australians ■ who were miners before the war have been engaged in gold hunting out there. The ground is not unlike that of Australia, and the practised eyes of the colonial miners detected auriferous traces.
