THE FOLLY OF THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

THE FOLLY OF THE ACE. [t has been said that the boy who gives up farming of any description never wil lingly returns to scenes of his youth again unless as a casual visitor. This is, unfortunately, only too true. But a still more dangerous avenue for the distrac tion of youth of this country is eques trianism. Our Australian-born rush_ to mnf/iD n KArco until f Vi a annarPTit ITlstiTlPt of a duckling to a water-hole. Our city colleges and schools seem to develop this instinct enormously, as it is somewhat remarkable how many of these 'better educated' than their fathers and mothers 1 show any inclination after ?'leaving the college or the school to live as their fathers and mothers lived or to follow the occupation of their fathers or mothers.. ??..?.?:??? %'*.*.' , , . ' This, is 'the folly of the age, and -.it As. not peculiar to Australia alone, as the writer has it on the' best of authority that the same .degeneracy is. to be found throughout Great Britain and Ireland and Americ...

Last time they dabbled in politics it brought about the downfall of the Temora Branch. Mr.; Armstrong seconded the motion. The President agreed with the spirit of the motion. His experie...

THE EXPORT OF POULTRY. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

THE EXPORT OF POULTRY. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.'5 Sir, — Now, when great though useless efforts are being made to prematurely bring about an export trade in poultry, it might not be unprofitable to enquire where the country poultry farmer comes in? Perhaps it is not generally recognised that profitable export of poultry is for country breeders only. Nevertheless, such is the case ; for it is an undeniable fact that suburban poultry farmers can never afford to export, and there is no doubt at all that when poultry export ranks as an established business, subur ban utility poultry farming, as we know it, must have entirely passed away. I wonder whether those suburbanites who so keenly, and regardless of cost, competed at the late table poultry compe tition ever gave a thought as to where the shoe would in due course pinch? Difficulties such as are ever increasingly confronting the suburban poultry farmer ? do not perturb his country contemporary. The countryman, able und...
