Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

To Pastor alists, Partners &* Settlers. It has come to our knowledge that some of our competitors (in the hope, no doubt, of creating thereby an opening for their inferior Foreign Netting) are circulating a rumour that we are unable to meet the demand for our Wire Netting. Notwithstanding the enormous consumption of our famous ' Loose Rolled ' Netting, this rumour, or any such statement, is ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE, as we long ago foresaw that Wire Netting would be the sole - safeguard against the rabbit pest, and accordingly made special arrangements to meet the ever-increasing demand, so that customers may absolutely rest assured of prompt delivery of any kind of Netting they require. After the number of years our Netting has been before the Public, and the reputation we have got for quality it is unnecessary for us to enlarge on its merits, but we cannot too strongly emphasise the fact that though the first cost of our Goods and Australian -made Wire Netting may be a trifle in e...

TURRAWAN. Rabbits.—Dingoes.—Sloth on the Railways. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

TURRAWAN. Rabbits. — Dingoes. — Sloth on the Rail ways. Ploughing operations have commenced here in earnest. Farmers here know the value of early crops. More rain is very badly needed for both grass and water. Settlers are poisoning vigorously at present, to try and get the pest under control before the feed grows. Native dogs' are making their presence felt rather severely. One sheep-owner lost five in one night. Dissatisfaction is expressed here with the Railway Department in not lifting trucks when loaded. Recently it took the Department three weeks to haul three trucks of logs seventy miles. .

CURRAH. Wire Netting and Its Cost. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

CURRAH. Wire Netting and Its Cost. At the last meeting there were eleven members present, Mr. H. Mag-ill, V.P., in the chair. A large number of local affairs were dealt with, including bores, railway extension, extended mail ser vice, etc. The question of wire netting was very fully discussed, and the meeting was of opinion that the Government should pur - chase a cheaper description of netting than has been generaly used. Almost all were in favor of 36 x ii x 18. This is not a farming district, and the above It was decided to work with the Bena and Wamboyne Branch in trying to se cure reduction in the carriage of netting, and in increasing the amount to be. pur chased by the Government for distribu tion. ? Personally, I think Hi*. Government should deliver the netting at the nearest raijway station, same as in Queensland, and charge the carriage (at reduced rates) by annual instalments, the same as the wire is to be charged.

SETTLERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

SETTLERS AND LOCAL GOVERN MENT. A wire from Forbes says : — Much dis satisfaction has been expressed since it became known that in the matter of the | nomination of gentlemen to fill the posi tions of temporary councillors under the Shires Act, the local Farmers' and Set- -. j tiers' Association has been ignored. It is 1 generally considered that the body which I directly represents the 'people affected by { local .government, and which was asked I by the Government to send men to the late - convention to formulate a scheme of local government, should have some represen tation on the' provisional council. Steps are now being taken to make strong re presentation through Messrs. Eden George and A. J. Kelly, Ms.L.A., to the department, with a .view to having the Association's claim, fairly considered.

HARVESTERS. AMERICAN FIRM'S PROPOSAL. To Fight the International Company. The Minister tor Trade and Customs (Sir William Lync) has received the fol lowing letter from Geo. W. Mische and Co., Rochester, New York, dated Febru ary 6 last :-— ' Federal Minister for Customs, Mel bourne, -Australia. Dear Sir,'— As we note from the telegraphic despatches that you are having some trouble with the Ameri can importers of harvester ninrhinps (The International Harvester Co.), which is known in this country as ' The Trust,' we would call your attention to an im proved low-down harvester which we have patented, and have tested for the. past three years with excellent success. Our machine is composed of less parts, and is very much simpler, than the Trust machines. What we would like to do is let your people use the patents on a royalty basis. We are sure that with this machine you could successfully compete with the International Harvester Co.., as it costs to manufacture about one-half that of...

PASSING EVENTS. LADY DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

PASSING EVENTS. By 'The Chatterer.' LADY DOCTORS. When I commented upon the case of Miss Aspinall, the lady doctor, who had been treated so cavalierly by the old gents on the University Senate Board, I said we should hear more about it. Now 1 find that the members of the Senate have backed clown, to the extent of permitting1 Dr. Aspinall to fill. for one year the posi tion to which she had been appointed by the Board of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital directors, and from which they had ousted her. At a meetiner of the two Boards last week the following1 resolution .was passed : — 'That as Miss Aspinall went into residence with the approval of the hospital authorities, she 'foe appointed for this year, subject to the resolution contained in the letter to the joint board of March 6, iqo6, from the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital ; that her appointment is not to be taken as a precedent, and that the whole question of the appointment of women doctor^ to the hospital be con sidered during'...

MARKET REPORTS. March 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 28 March 1906

MARKET REPORTS. March 26. Wheat.— Offerings from the country still continue very light,- and _ in conse quence those buyers who arc in need of immediate supplies have had to pay as high as 3'3i for prime Rivcrina. Should the present conditions continue we may see a further advance during the week. It is a remarkable state of things, con sidering that we have still a surplus of - about 0,000,000 bushels to export (if the official estimates are to be relied on), that values should be 2cl. a bushel over what shippers to London can legitimately af ford to give. We cannot see how it can be maintained unless the home market improves considerably. Our latest cable advices inform us that a New South \\ ales cargo has been sold at 30/7* per quarter c.i.f. This is a slight advance on for mer sales. Another strange anomaly is that chickwheat at Redfern is bringing nearly the same figure as good milling. We quote, f.a.q., 3/ 3 ; inferior, 3/2.

The Secretary stated that he had not replied to the' Intelligence Department in reference to a list of persons requiring land in this district, as he had forwarded the application forms but had received no replies. Mr. Wood's said the reason why no re plies had been received was because the people did not want to disclose their pri vate business. Mr. G. A.
