THE GARDEN. CHRYSANTHEMUMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

THE GARDEN. CHRYSANTHEMUMS. Chrysanthemum buds are now ap proaching bursting point, and while this1 flower has of late years suffered a par tial eclipse, yet the display of those giant blooms which appear at the Easter sea soon will soon be responsible for the ad miring crowds which assemble about the windows of the city florists. Unques tionably the flower which is responsible for the waning fame of the chrysanthe mum is the cactus dahlia, the long grace ful quills of which arc in striking con trast to the stiff er petals of the other. * * * Nevertheless the chrysanthemum has always its circle of admirers, and it is safe to affirm that it will never suffer the fate of that other erstwhile popular flower, the camellia, which has indeed fallen upon evil times, although but a few years since the reigning favorite. * * * When large flowers of the chrysanthe mum are desired it is necessary to adopt special treatment, otherwise the blooms will be small. It is considered that the laterals...

THE SMALL MAN'S TROUBLES. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

THE SMALL MAN'S TROUBLES. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — As an old pioneer of over fifty years living in Riverina, with your per mission, I wish to ventilate the drastic conditions we have been living under in Sunny New South Wales. 1 am now an old man with a very large family, and have held land under all sorts of conditions since the 1 86 1 Land Act was passed. I, like many others, through the bad land administration and the action of agents, district surveyors, and one bank ing company's manager, am now practic ally a ruined man, after a life of toil, with a large grown up family. The monied men have always got what they wanted. Look at the land exchanges in this part — they will speak for themselves. We have been robbed of our rights every time. This is the reason that our offspring arc compelled to leave the home of their birth behind, which is surrounded by some of the best lands on God's earth, simply because they cannot get justice. I can point to the Western...

AN OPEN LETTER. To the Honorable James Ashton, Minis ter for Lands. (Per favor liThe Fanner and Settler.') Hon. Sir, — I cherish the hope that the importance of the subject which I ven ture to present thus prominently for your attention may excuse me in some meas ure for the assurance of addressing' you in this public and unusual manner, and mav also claim some passing1 notice from even your honorable self — whose time, I admit, must be fully occupied by the pressing cares of your high and honor able position. Indeed, it is doubtful that there exists to-day in this State any po sition, public or private, in which the discharge of the duties of oflice calls for more genuine hard work, more consistent attention, and a greater amount of forti tude, than the position which you fill. That the realisation of the hopes of a very large and deserving section of the people depends on the results of your administration of the law as you find' it, taken in conjunction with the known fact that n...

POULTRY FOR PROFIT CAYUGA DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

POULTRY FOR PROFIT CAYUCA DUCKS. This is a breed which has been well known in the sister State of Victoria for some years, although as far as our en quiries have gone they are still unknown here. Although considered an American variety, a somewhat similar large black duck was common in parts of England htty years ago. According to Lewis Wright, the first American specimens were sent over in 1S71, and a further im portation followed some years later. These early specimens, that authority states, were on the small side, and in clined to be dingy in colour, and it was considered that they were subsequently crossed with black East India ducks, in order to secure the green lustre or gloss of the latter. Although this was effected, the progeny were still small, and some were further crossed with the Aylesbury, and others with the Rouen, to improve their size. The exhibition Cayaga, therefore, has not much in common with its American ancestor. One noticeable point of differ ence is that it...

PRESERVED EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

PRESERVED ECCS. Those who stored eggs when they were plentiful and prices were low, may now reap the benefit of their foresight. Undoubtedly Jhe largest number go into cold storage, and for large quantities where such a convenience is available, that plan could hardly be improved upon. Those, however, who are denied access to that means, so largely made use of by the suburban poultry farmer, may parti cipate in the improved prices now ruling, if recourse has been had to either the liming or water-glass method of preserv ing. ? * * * Where eggs are intended for home use only, we would strongly advocate the sim ple device of smearing them, while but a clay or, two old, with either butter or so called olive oil. Treated thus, we have found them equal to new-laid even after the lapse of six months. This plan, however, while it gives by far the best egg, does not produce the best-looking or most sightly one, and appearance, as everybody knows, goes a long way with the buyer. * * * Outsid...

OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

OUR VETERINARY COLUMN. By B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S. [Questions relating- to the ailments or diseases of all farm stock will be ans wered for subscribers by Mr. B. B. Loel, M.M.C.V.S., through this col umn. A short clear statement of symp toms, addressed 'Veterinary Enquiry,' c/o the Editor, the 'Farmer and Set tler,' 84 Pitt-street, Sydney, is all that is necessary. The advice or informa tion will appear in the issue following.'] Broken Knees is the term applied to any wound inflicted on a horse's knee or knees by falling-, or by hitting- himself. In examining- a horse to see if he has been down, we should, in doubtful cases, closely view the knee if profile, so as to detect any roughness of the hair or swel ling on the front of the joint, by which we may perceive that the horse has broken his knees on some former occasion ; for un less the edges of the wound unite with a degree of accuracy we cannot expect to find, after this accident the hair will not be smooth and level, and a sever...

MANURES AND CROPS. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

MANURES AND CROPS. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — Will you permit us to say a few words on an important subject to the wheat-growers of New South Wales? We know of no better plan of reaching them than through your columns. We have heard a great deal of late years about the advantage of water soluble manures, and there can be no doubt about their value, because as a rule the .farmer wants a quick' return for his outlay on manures, and looks for that return mainly, through his first crop. But there are principles which — right in themselves — do not work out equally well under all circumstances. We will suppose a paddock seeded to wheat and Jcwt. to the acre of super phosphate. The season, though not a drought, is still in the main a dry one. In the earlier stages of the crop the quickly soluble phosphates are dissolved, although there is but little moisture in the soil, and when the crop comes into the ear there is still plant food left to sus tain and mature in it, a...

A WORD ON MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

A WORD ON MANURES. It has often been asked, and possibly never satisfactorily answered, What is the best general manure for the drought-stricken lands of this State? Upon what crops should such and such a manure be used? What quantities per acre should be applied when high-classed commercial manures are used? What methods of use or application have been found most profitable? * * * The reason why these questions can never be answered with any degree of general satisfaction is because of the great variety of our soils, the climatic conditions' under which those soils exist, and the many methods of cultivation in use among the same class of farmers in this State. * * * The following1 question was, however, asked .and answered recently in one of our leading agricultural journals, which may be of interest to a section of our agriculturists' — namely, 'What is the pe culiarity of super-phosphates under drought conditions?' The answer came from Prof. Lowrie, whether directly or indirectly...

WESTERN DISTRICT COUNCIL. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

WESTERN DISTRICT COUNCIL. . \. ? ? ? To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' bir, — Much - unnecessary perturbation seems to have been caused in the minds of certain people regarding- the possible influence which the formation of the Wes tern District Council will exert upon the future of the Farmers' and Settlers' As sociation of New South Wales. We who cook this new departure nope mosi strongly and sincerely that it will be an influence for good only. Almost every week new branches are steadily being established throughout the length and breadth of the land, and un der the present constitution the annual conference threatens to become unwieldy, and therefore barren (to some extent, at least) of good results. To obviate this undesirable state of 'affairs, the New Zea land system will have to be followed, and the country divided into districts under the administration of Councils, from which Councils a limited number of dele gates representing the whole State will ultimately be chos...

REDFERN PRODUCE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

REDFERN PRODUCE MARKETS. Chaff.— Supplies were exceptionally small this morning, and in view of the fact that this was the opening sale day of the month, supplies were not sufficient for the demand, consequently prices firmed X' up considerably. There was only one truck of choice wheaten on offer, which realised the big price of 4/-, a consider able advance on recent prices. Ordinary prime made 3/8 to 3/9, good 3/4 to.3/6, medium about. 3/-. Choice oaten made 3/8, . prime 3/6 to 3/7, good 3/4 ? to. 3/5, medium about 3/-. Supplies of imported from Victoria and South Australia are. ? 'y fairly heavy, and 'offering at much lowei prices than local, and this must be a fac tor- in preventing any material improve ment in- the local market. Oaten Hay is fairly well supplied, and good demand exists for prime rack at 3/6 to 4/-, medium 2/9 to 3'/-.

MARKET REPORTS. WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 4 April 1906

MARKET REPORTS. WHEAT. The market has hardened during the week, and offerings of prime wheat are readily taken by the millers at 3/4. The shippers are not able to operate on the advanced prices as unfortunately for them the English market has not improved to any extent' to justify operation at existing Commonwealth prices. The shippers were heavy buyers in the early stages of the season,, and as the market has not been maintained at its early strength, the principal shippers are large holders, and are considerable factors in helping prices at the present juncture, The farmers who are holding in the three principal States are generally in a strong financial position, and regard their stocks in coun try grain sheds as good as idle capital in a banking account. The latest statis tics relating to the wheat yield indicate that the figures furnished by Mr. Hall as a preliminary estimate were reasonably accurate,' and it is satisfactory to note that the later figures show a slight in creas...

LAND SETTLEMENT. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

LAND SETTLEMENT. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir, — Owing to congested population in older countries, there are many thousands of people who are anxious to seek fresh fields and pastures new, to obtain a home for themselves, and, if they are married men, to obtain a home for their families also, so that their children will have a noble heritage at the death of their par ents, instead of being thrust on to the labor-market, like too many thousands of young men and women are at the pre sent time. And all these countries, such as Chili, Canada, the United States, who are anxious to develop their resources, to have more people to bear the burden of taxation, are competing very strongly in obtaining immigrants. But the result of that competition — as far as Australia is concerned — is showing its result very slowly. Let us reflect. Here we have the larg est island in the world, blessed with vast natural resources, and with a mere hand ful of four million people to develop the...

AN IMMIGRANT GROWLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

AN IMMIGRANT GROWLER. The complaints made by C. McKenzie, an immigrant, to the Victorian Premier, regarding his treatment in Western Aus tralia, have been answered. Replying to the letter he had sent to Mr. Bent, Mr. Kingsmill, W.A. Colonial Secretary, states that McKenzie came to Western Australia on a mail steamer, not as an assisted immigrant, but at his own ex an arrangement made by the AgentGen eral with the Orient Company for such passages, the Government accepting no responsibility over and above that due to any citizen of Western Australia. As soon as McKenzie arrived in the State he presented himself at the Colonial Secre tary's office, and complained that he was without funds. He produced a Savings Bank book, showing he had to his credit in England ,£13, and the Government ad vanced him £5, and accepted his promis sorv note.' On March 1 he wrote to Mr. Rason, the State Premier, asking for work, and on March 10, the day after he sent his complaint to Mr. Bent, he again wrot...

THE NEED FOR LAND. IS THE DEMAND BEING MET? [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE NEED FOR LAND. IS THE DEMAND BEINC MET? Speaking at the Hawkesbury Agricultu ral College last week Premier Carruthers said : — Agriculture was the foundation of all industry, and the agriculturist was the best citizen the country could have. Since 1888, when the Department of Agricul ture was established, the area of land under cultivation in New South Wales had increased from 850,000 acres— the result acres in 1904. Under the advanced policy there had been three times as much ex pansion in 16 years as during the previous 100 years under the old policy. Every day the papers had column on column of matter about the need for land, but one had only to travel about the country as he had done to see that there were mil lions of acres crying aloud for labor to come and work it. It was not available as Crown land, and if he had half a dozen sons he wouldn't allow one of them to go hunting after Crown land. The con ditions attaching to it were against the crain of those wanting1 to be f...

THE WESTERN LANDS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE WESTERN LANDS ACT. Five years have elapsed since the Western Lands Act became law, and the Act and its administration can now be judged by the public. It may be necessary to briefly review the conditions of the country in 1901 that led up to the passing of this „ measure. The west had been made desolate by a series of dry years. The country to a certain extent had become abandoned and depopulated. The provisions of the then existing land laws were found to be unsuit able for that large district ; and to prevent large areas from becoming actually abandoned, it was deemed necessary to mete. out special treat ment to the holders and occupiers of land, with the result that a special Land Bill was passed in December, 1 90 1, and amended in 1905. It seems to be a matter of course that any. land law passed requires to be amended. The 1 90 1 Act took the administra tion of the law out of the hands of the local Land Boards^and placed it under three Commissioners. As the commissioners naa...
