ON THE TWEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

ON THE TWEED. A late wire says : — The wet weather is seriously interfering with the harvesting of the maize crop. On many farms the land is so boggy that farmers are un able to gather in the crops. Some of the matured maize is reported to be start ing a second growth from the cob. Farm ers arc gradually getting out ot tne old groove of using the old style of agricul tural implements, and during the last few months a number of improved disc ploughs and other modern cultivators have been purchased. A few farmers are making ensilage for the winter. Paspal um is said to make splendid fodder, and broad-cast corn is also being put into the silos.

TROUBLES NEVER COME SINGLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

TROUBLES NEVER COME SINGLY. The above adage has been strikingly exemplified in the case of Mr. Philip An shaw, of Luc (says Mudgee 'Post'). First of all he lost two horses, upon which he largely depended for a livelihood, one packing up some poison laid for rab bits, and the otlicr getting caught in a wire fence. These losses, added to the^ enough, but to complete his misfortune he had his home and almost all of its contents destroyed by fire on Friday ?night. With a view to recouping him in some slight measure the good folk of Lue are organising a benefit social, which will lie held on Easter -Monday night. ;

PUPILS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

PUPILS FOR FARMERS. One of the branches of the Immigration League of Australia's business is a pro vision for placing the city youths on the soil to enable them to learn how to become practical farmers and at the same time receive a small wage for their labor.

The Immigration League sees that only fit and respectable boys are sent out to tne various farms; and with the object of still enlarging tins phase of their work^ applications afe earnestly invited from farmers willing to receive pupils on the conditions set out above. Farmers are re quested to communicate with the Secre tary, 11 Terry's Chambers, Castlereagh street, Sydney. — — — —— - — — — —

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) GO ON THE LAND, YOUNG MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Othsrwise.j By Cypher. GO ON THE LAND, YOUNG MAN. Not the least interesting phase of the Immigration League's work is the de spatching1 of city lads to country farmers, for the purpose of educating the lads in the successful work of primary produc tion. When it is reflected that (as was pointed out in this paper a few weeks ago) cities and other incorporated areas contain Three-fourths of the Total Population, and that practically the whole million and a half of our State population depends directly or indirectly on the efforts of the something less ' than one-tenth of that number engaged in farming, grazing, etc.; it will be readily seen that the work of the Immigration League referred to is not so insignificant as it appears at first sight. It will also be evident to any thoughtful person that this relatively small number cf primary producers oc cupy a vastly more important economic position in the body politic than any other section of the community. ...
