TROUBLES OF STOCKOWNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

TROUBLES OF STOCKOWNERS. The following 'par' from our Walgett contemporary brings' into vivid relief , the troubles some stockowners are called upon to face: — 'Mr. Edwd. Newton, of Spring Vale, Comborah, is one of the unfortunate sheepowncrs whom --drought has played some grim pranks with.v Forced to shift his sheep from Comborah to rented coun try near Walgett, scarcity of feed compel led him to make another move,' and he decided' to return home.

WHAT CLOSER SETTLEMENT WILL DO. LOCKHART MOVES ALONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

WHAT CLOSER SETTLEMENT WILL DO. LOCKHART MOVES ALONG. In 1S97 the total area under crop in the Lockhart district did -not exceed 5000 acres; last year between 35,000 and 40,000- acres were cropped. During the last three years nearly 300,000 bags of wheat passed over the weighbridge in the Lockhart railway yard, of which' amount this year has contributed nearly So,opo bags, and wheat carting is not nearly completed. During last year (1905) about 10,000 lambs were sent to the metropolitan markets, brinffing un to 12s. 6d. per head. During the last two years fully ,£10,000 worth of stripper harvesters alone were taken delivery of at the Lockhart railway station.

POULTRY FOR PROFIT THE PINTADA, OR GUINEA FOWL. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

POULTRY FOR PROFIT THE PINTADA, OR GUINEA FOWL. A Sydney poultryman lately received an order for ten pairs of these birds, and after visiting all the saleyards in the city was only able to secure half the required number. '?-♦?'?- The difficulty he experienced, perhaps, explains how there is no regular demand for this handsome though noisy speci men of the genus Gallus. Where a good article is in steady supply, it must soon meet with a constant and ever-increasing the London market the Guinea fowl sometimes fetches 7/6 per pair. They are much more gamey in flavour than are other domesticated fowls, and the flesh, while somewhat dark, is of excellent quality. In the Cape de Verde Islands, and also in parts of the West Indies, where they have been introduced, they have thriven as well as could be. At tempts made in England to stock shoot ing preserves with them have proved un satisfactory. Not that the birds did not succeed, but for two reasons which only experience could reveal, viz....

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

THE GARDEN. Among the flowering plants which bloom late and early, and are not par ticular as regards soil, situation or cli mate, the Salvias deservedly hold a high place. Of these we have grown S. Splen dens, a grand scarlet ; S. Coccinea, an other scarlet, of which more anon ; S. In glinieur Clavenad, an improved Splen dens, blooming somewhat earlier than the first-named ; S. Argentea, a pinkish white ; S. Patens, blue ; S. Romcriana, a good dwarf scarlet. Of these, Splen dens, Inglenieur, and Romcriana are un doubtedly the best. * * * Touching Coccinea, an enterprising seedsman whom we asked for Splendens, supplied that fraud with the remark that it was just as good as the other. Cer tainly, the front of the packet which con tained the seed bore a highly-colored pic ture which bore out what he said, .and we planted our seed in hope. We watered also. Likewise we paid nightly visits sto those precious seedlings, seeding for the hungry snails who can always appreciate anything choi...

AN IMPORTANT LOCAL INDUSTRY. MANUFACTURE OF WIRE NETTING. LYSAGHT BROS. & CO., LTD. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

an important Local industry. MANUFACTURE OF WIRE NETTING. LYSACHT BROS. & CO., LTD. When a local industry, without tariff aid. can, on its absolute merits, com mand success, it secures the goodwill of freetraders and protectionists. Such an industry is the manufacture 01 wire-netting. By the weight of sheer superiority, the wirenet ting made within New South Wales fetches a higher price than that which is imported. The rea son of this superiority is easily understood by pastoralists, farm ers and others, who have already used wire-netting to any extent. For the purpose of reducing freight charges, the imported ar ticle is so tightly rolled, and in its compressed condition receives so much rough handling, that by the time it is placed in position it has lost much of its zinc cov ering, especially where it has been entwined. Consequently in parts it itmncdiatcly becomes subject to the action of the wea ther, and often in a disappoint ingly short period its efficacy is impaired...
