Growing Enthusiasm. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Growing Enthusiasm. The splendid reception /* The Land" is meeting with, alike in the- coastal, central, and western portions; of .the, State, is the best testimony . we can: have of the growing determination of the producers to come together and to fight together. From quarters whence no response was previously enlisted, inquiries are now coming in to the central office of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, for information as to how to form branches. There is also widespread' demand for speakers, so that, when the executive councillors and other members of the . Association who have been detailed to cover all the country > districts east of the Darling get properly to work they will find ?.' no, shortage of enthusiastic helpers in the various centres' to be visited. ?Perhaps the. greatest stirring of interest is, among the farmers who either wholly or partly devote themselves to dairy ing.. It is dawning upon the dairymen that the time has come when they must look out for tr...
GREAT POTATO COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
GREAT POTATO COUNTRY. In the " Agricultural Gazette" Mr. Ross, one of tlie departmental inspec tors^ recently mentioned the case of a man who took up some land in the BatloAV district last year, and who obtained a return from potatoes ?which might well excite the envy of the struggling wheat farmer. This selector commenced by clearing] 20 acres of land to plant with fruit trees. As soon as it was l'eadyithe area was cropped with potatoes in ^November last, and in due course) the magnificent yield of 140 tons ',was dug out of the soil. The return was seven tons to the acre, and as the crop was worth £5 per ton at the farm, the gross yield was thus £700-or £35 per acre. Many a man does not obtain as much as this from 200 or 300 acres of land under wheat, and there is the added dis advantage of the greater uncertainty and dependence on tlie^eason in. the latter case. The average rainfall,jn the Batlow district for a period* of five years is auout 50in., so that there is never any . app...

THE LAND. " Nations may battle and the world rockjjwith revolution but the land will care for him who cares for it." v' Telephone 2843 City.l Telegrams, "The Land," Sydney Offices 3 Spring Street, Sydney. FRIDAY. MARCH 3. 1911. Unrest. We wish that circumstances and probabilities did indeed support -Mr. Holman's assurance that the numerous labour troubles now existing- or threatening are merely? the last sparks .given out by a dying Catharine wheel, and' that soon all will be " quiet on the Potomac." Unfortunately to those who cannot see through Mr. Holman's spectacles of rose-colour, the pros pects do not seem so pleasing. The rooted idea in-the minds of the more militant and active spirits in the' unions and the labour leagues has long been to sow class dissension, and dig. a chasm between capital and labour, employer and employee. It was the patent manifestations of this policy, unfortunately only too successful, which led Mr. Sinclair, the Scottish; Agri cultural Commissioner, t...

NOTES. Beet. sugar cultivation is to get a fair trial in Victoria, and arrange: merits are being made to take - it';*up' in New Zealand also. Why not in N.S.W., too V Some years ago an .'.'attempt was made to get it going on the New England tableland/ but there was. some hitch, and the at tempt fizzled out. The expert who has lust come over to Victoria from America to superintend the industry in the- Southern State, says that the rate paid for beets in America runs about,; £1 per ton. vThere is no waste as the pulp makes good cattle food, especially dairy stock. Being emi nently an industry for an irrigation settlement it may be found suitable for the Murrumbidgee Valley. ' The South Australians are quite pleased with the way that they have .settled the Pinneroo problem. This great expanse of country, much af ter the Mallee in characteristics, was Until quite recently regarded as a hopeless desert.

Orchard Notes. CODLIN MOTH IN LITTLE ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Orchard Notes. CODLIN MOTH IN LITTLE ORCHARDS. Oodlin moth is noi so great a pest this year as it lias been, hut there is a good deal of it in the little orchards. It may save some of the owners trouble and expense if we remind them that the law requires .everyone to bandage -.his apple trees and keep them banuaged from the 1st October in each year till all the fruit is oil' the trees. But besides this he is also compelled to have the ban dages examined every eight dayg, and to see that all the codlin moths found in them are destroyed. As there is an inspector in every fruit district, those who neglect to have their trees bandaged and examined as stated do so at tneir own risk. In the past, valuable orchards have been practically rumed by the rav ages of this der tractive moth, or father by its larvae ; and it is the duty of everyone to see that the precaution is being taken for its ex termination in the State are being properly observed. A large crop and damp conditions are favoura...
TICKS GETTING FURTHER SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
TICKS GETTING FURTHER SOUTH. The tick trouble on the Queens land border is proving a tough prob lem for the Stock Department. .Late information from the North Coast country shows that the ticks are com ing further south, two specimens hav ing been discovered this side of the Kyogle quarantine area. One of these ticks "was found on a farm six miles south of the Kyogle quaran tine boundary, and the other .on a farm about two miles south of it. Both these farms have been quaran tined, and it is a question whether the boundary line will not have to he brought south to include all the inter vening area. Casino people are said to be very much afraid of the en croachment of the pest, and natu rally expect the Government to take some effective action to prevent its spreading. Some time ago the Pre mier, Mr. McGowen, communicated with the Premier of Queensland, with a view to having the border country cleared by Mr. Kidston's Government, and suggesting the establishment of a neutral zone bet...
Cultivation DIRTY FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
a Qa-- - «se Cultivation, Nj DIRTY FALLOW. Wheat growers who are adopting the bare fallow system are up against trouble in many districts this year. The abnormal'wet season has resulted in a big growth of weeds coming along, and as harvest time does not allow for an,y other work of extent being carried out, the Aveeds have got ahead. Most places are now carrying a-nice heavy crop of useless stuff, which is just what is not wanted. J.t is one of the many-un expected ' luxuries that bob, up at times on the farm. Fallow in such condition is not muclij if any. better than if not ploughed up at all. The weeds are using up a lot of fer tility that will be Avanted later on, and also pumping out the moisture it AA'as desired to keep. The best thing to do Avill be to get the ploughs in again as soon as possible now the Avlieat is mostly carted and time is aA'ailable. One consolation is that turning up the ground is not likely to mean any serious loss of moisture, as the country is mostly wel...

NEW ELEVATOR OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST MILL. Capacity 450,000 bushels; Height, 200 feet. Our illustration shows the new 450.000 bushel fireproof elevator which the Pillsbury Flour Mills Co. recently erected at Minneapolis as an adjunct of their .mill, ..which is, the largest in the world'. We have nothing like it in Australia, and when it is considered that it rises to a height of 200 feet; which' is 90 feet higher than the ; Commercial Travellers' building,'...the tallest structure in Sydney, it can well be. imagined that it'forms a very conspicuous landmark. The elevator occupies a ground space of SOv.x 80 feet. There are 25 cylindrical tile-tanks, each .100 feet high and 16 feet in diameter. They are surmounted by a working house, which lias a frame of structural steel and tile walls. The' house lias five floors, which are devoted to an equipment of weighing and cleaning machines.

Association Doings The R.W.U. Claims. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
The R.W.U. Claims. Through ail inadvertence the re solutions of another branch were as cribed to the Boggabri branch; This branch approves of the following rates:-It was held that, whilst it might be fair for a good, reliable, and practical hand to receive £2 2s per week and found, for reaper and binder work, it would be unfair that employers should be compelled to pay that w.age to an incompetent hand, not acquainted with the work, and whose lack of experience might lead to the smashing of the mach inery or other accidents. After a good deal of genez-al dis cussion the following motion was carried unanimously:-"That this branch recommends that there be an insistence upon employees holding a certificate as to capability to work harvester, or reaper and binder; and that 10 hours instead of 8 hours be fixed as the working day, at £2 2s per week and found." The following rates were decided on at the last meeting of the Manil dra branch: . (1) The scale of wages for thresh ing machine m...
