A FREEHOLD TITLE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 February 1914

A FREEHOLD TITLE. Mr Robertson is perfectly cor rect in . stating that clause 69 lias prevented settlers from tak ing up blocks. He might have gone further, and said that much of the trouble has- risen through the restrictive clauses of the act which have prevented the . Closer Settlement Board from exercising any independent judgment and have hampered the settlers. After, thirty years' inti maie experience with selectors, with purchasers of private pro perty, with the cutting up of large estates. I firmly believe there is engrained in every man the desire to possess a piece of land, which he can use for any purpose he may choose and sell whan..jind-towhom ho may tliluk lit. Perpetual leasehold is a beau tiful . theory, which we are all willing to see the other fellow adopt. For most'of us a Torrens title is :good enough. We know its resti'ictions astominerals and railways, though generally ' the latter clause causes some qualms. Our selectors of, c Id time knew that in so many year...

ABOUT GETTING GOOD MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 February 1914

'ABOUT GETTING GOOD J MILKERS. The question of the milk yielcl jf the cow depends mainly 01). tier inherent milk yielding capac ity. This being a heredity qual ity, the milk yielding capacity of a herd of dairy cows can large ly be increased by careful selec tion and breeding. Attention should be paid to the drafting into the herd only those heifors which have been bred from the best, or, at any rate, good milk ers. The heifer calves from poor or indifferent milkers, should on no account be retained. By se lecting the heifers, and continu ing this process for a sulllcient length of time, the average milk yield of the herd will bo consid erably increased. It is not sufficient, however, to insure that the dams of the calves retained for drafting into the herd are good milkers. Equal attention should be paid to the class of sires used. The sire should be bred from a deep milk ing strain. Too many dairy far mers carelessly use any kind of animal so long as he can get calves. In some ins...

A few Tiburr'after' he had stepped from the' Sydney express the. first of a series of conferences was in pro gress. All that the Minister had to say at its conclusion was that general matters relating to the Territory were discussed. It is not unlikely that as a re sult of the interchange of views between the Administrator and the Minister some drastic altera tions will be made in the admin- j "stration. The abolition as sepa rate positions of the Protector- I ship of Aborigines, the Director- | ship of Lands and the Director- 1 ship of Education, is believed to ' be but a mild measure of the re- ] fo^m which is in contemplation.

IRRIGATION DIFFICULTIES IN N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 February 1914

IRRIGATION - DIFFICULTIES IN N.S.W. The Yanco settlemenis .are be ing steadily boomed by the Irri gation department. It must be said that the work of keeping the scheme before tlie public is very successfully carried out. The press notices would do credit tc the genius of the most accomplished press agent en gaged by any proprietary in the theatrical business. Reports of the progress made by the settlers appear at regular intervals, and particulars as to areas under various crops, live stock kept, and returns realised are furnish ed with the closest attention to detail. Landseekers are con tinually attracted to the irriga tion district, and the commis sioner experiences little difficul ty in placing the available blocks This is probably all thoroughly justified by the prospects which lie before the through-going ir rigationist who takes up land under the liberal State scheme at Yanco. Occasionally, however, the fact that every man is not born an irrigalionist peeps out, and the publ...

KIALLA EAST. FAREWELL SOCIAL AT KIALA (From our Correspondent). A pleasant and enjoyable   evening, connected with the ap- proaching departure to New South Wales of the four sons of Mr and Mrs P. J. Quinlan, took place at the school hall on Friday evening. The ladies of Ki- alla, assisted by some of the young gentlemen, had everything in first rate order, so much so, that even the hot evening could not deter the numerous visitors from "tripping the light fantas- tic." Mr Will Gaffy had his old position as master of ceremonies. Excellent dance music was sup- plied by Messrs Jack Patterson J. Quinlan and Ford Palmer. The eatables and drinkables were of a high order, and sent round; with true Kialla hospital- ity, and generosity. Songs were interspersed between dances. Mr Jas. O'Halloran (Shepparton) sang beautifully to a nicely played accompaniment supplied by himself. Miss Patterson's fine voice was heard to advan- tage in "Eileen Allanah." Mes- srs Jas. Quinlan, J.

At a meeting of the Board of Public Health in Melbourne on February 4 consideration was §iven to a letter from the Rodney hire Council, enclosing a copy of the annual report of the health officer for the Tatura Riding (Dr M. A. Ley), and stating that resolutions had been passed that the report was "irrelevant and grossly insult ing," and that the health offi cers appointment should be terminated. The council was of the opinion "that it could not uphold its dignity other than by takng action" on the lines indi cated and asked confirmation of its action. In the report Dr^M. A.

FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

FARM NOTES. The prosperity of the town depends- upon the prosperity of the country. Commercial bodies should then pay more attention to increasing oountry popula tion and less to bringing increas ed numbers to town. Doubling the population in the country and increasing the effloiency the farmers .will bring about a healthy and permanent growth of the town. A dairyman's success in dis posing of breeding stook will in a large measure depend on the appearance of his herd bull. The man who has the • sleek, healthy bull at the head of his herd will be the most likely to sell first, because the buyer knows the other good qualities that lie hidden in the animal in this condition. . Experiments at the Kansas experimental station a few years ago indicated that it was never safe to bale lucerne from the field. If it was dry enough to prevent moulding in bale, it was too dry to save the leaves. The investigators concluded that lucerne should be stacked for not less than 30 days before it was b...

THE FARMER'S BANKER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

THE FARMER'S BANKER. Did you ever stop to think who your best banker was, ,who you draw against every day in the year, who always ..honors your drafts according to your deposits, and that you always have a deposit there; that your ability to draw depends on the amount that you deposit with this banker that a hailstorm does not wholly destroy the de posit; that an early or late frost does slight damage to the de posit; that, with proper care and preparation, the hailstorm' and fi-ost can be forestalled, so that the deposit will not be af l'eoled; also drought the wet season, the weevil or codlin moth will not affect this banker? If you know all this, why not maK.6 a larger deposit so you will be able to draw a larger amount per annum, The banker is the cow. Now, let's see how to increase the de posit. First this banker should be of a milk-bred strain. If you have a scrub cow trade her oil or fatten her and sell her, for if she does not produce more than £7 per annum she only pays fr ...

DREDGING REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

DREDGING REFORM. Dredging reform is still la mentably hanging fire. Instead of acting upon the report of the recent inquiry board, the Minis ter of Mines, Mr. J. D. Brown, persists in his determination to make an inspection on his own account, and prepare another re port. He will leave Melbourne next Saturday by the Albury ex press, and travel to Bright. On Monday he will motor to Harriet villc and back to Bright, and thence, work down to Wanga ratta. The tour will occupy at least three days, and probably more. Mr. Brown is taking plans of the leases where damage is being done, and will carry the board's report for his enlighten ment or otherwise. He promises lo act. as promptly as possible after his return, presumably by reporting on the board's report, and thereafter submitting recom inundations of .his own to the Cabinet. Ministerial action of that kind should have been taken more than a year ago; but at the present stage it is worse tha useless, and merely delays the; accomplish...
