GERMANTON. Councillor L. Cox is billed to speak at Germanton, on March 25. In a cir cular announcing the meeting, Mr. Edward Byrne, the local secretary, thus addresses the people of the dis trict:-"You probably are aware that the Association has been registered as a non-trading limited liability company, in order that the farming and grazing interests can be protect ed before the Court in any .industrial dispute.

THE LATE MR. FRED. PEPPIN. ' The death, recently, of Mr. Frede rick ,-Peppin, at the age of 82, has removed a Hiverina identity whose name* will remain' green in the his tory of the Australian merino sheep. It was lie and his brother, the late -Mr. George Peppin, that founded the Wanganella flock, the descendants of which now find buyers to-day in all parts of Australia, and in parts of iNew Zealand and South Africa. Mr. Frederick (or Fred, as he was called) Peppin came to Victoria with his parents and brother in 1850, and in the following year the firm of Peppir & Sons was established, their first purchase being a station in Victoria. It was not until 1858 that Wan ganella was purchased from Mr. Brodribb, and Boonoke, a property adjoining, was bought a few years afterwards. The History of the Wan ganella stud flock is fairly well known, although not all the breeds experimented with before the desired aim was reached.

THE ARTFUL DODGERS; "But suppose the trust's heel were much heavier oil the public neck than anyone but Mr. Hughes actually believes, is that any reason why the Federal Government should want power to regulate wages.

TRY JAPANESE MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
TRY JAPANESE MILLET. Japanese millet is verylargely raised in several of the Victorian dairy districts. The seed is drilled in. at the rate of 13 lbs. to the acre. The practise is to mix the seed with an equal measurement of superphos phates, and place in the box of the drill, and the cogs arranged on the gauze as if to distribute 22 lbs of wheat to the acre. The plan was accidentaHy hit upon. Not any of the distributing holes in the drill are closed up, so that the seed is drilled in seven inches apart, the same as wheat and oats. This millet lias certain advantages over maize, it is claimed, which is giving it a pretty good character. For one tiling, it is a hardier plant, and it can be fed down several times. The cattle,'' too, are fonder of it than maize; and it produces more milk-. so one dairyman argues. . For these, reasons, it is rapidly supplanting maize in that neighbourhood. If four paddocks are employed, the cows, on a''system of rotation, can be kept going from December...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
NOTES. A Richmond River farmer raised over 5000 water melons on 1 % acres of land. Some 2800 were disposed of at Ballina for £140, and the balance went to waste. Crops will soon he put in at the Nyngan Experiment Farm. This farm was transferred from Goolabali, and its work should have a big effect in determining the future boundaries of the wheat belt. There are millions of acres yet that will grow wheat that have not been introduced to the plough, in good, safe districts. That should be han dled first. There is a risk in the dry-farming business, and that means that a spe cial type of farmer is wanted. He must have plenty of brains and a very big strong heart. There will be dis appointment. In considering dry farming we can not place all our faith on what is btjing done in America, where the country is soaked with snow at times. Furthermore, the Americans are great liars at times. New Zealanders reck.on that the only satisfactory way to handle the Californian thistle is to keep it ...

Orchard Notes. ORIGIN OF WILLIAMS' PEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Orchard Notes. ORIGIN OF WILLIAMS' PEAR. Undoubtedly the niost popular p.ear of the time is what is generally known as the Williams, but if the, "producer had his rights, it seems it should be known either as the Wheeler or Stair pear. There are various stories about its origin, one of which is that it was introduced ' into Australia, by a foreigner named Boil Chretien, and that he brought it here as a development of the Bart lett pear; also that what is called ; the liartlett, the Bon Chretien, and the Williams pear, arc one and the same. The writer has taken a little trouble to get the history of this orchard triumph, and it will no doubt prove interesting, besides serving to dispose of some of the idle rumours about its origin, especially that one ?which gives an American named Bartlett the credit of "creating" it; .for it had been well known and high ly , appreciated in the London mar ket for nearly 30 years before it was introduced to America by.Mr. Enoch Bartlett. But just as ...

P.P. Boards. The Collarenebri P.P; Board reports that during the year 1910, dingoes- to the number .of 115 were destroyed. The amount paid- per head for their destruction by the P.P. Board is £2, but this - is generally supplemented by the owner of the land by an addi tional sum, in some instances to the extent of £10 per head, when the dog proves to have been more destructive than ordinary. During the same period 205 foxes were killed, the fee paid for them at present being 2s Gel per head for cubs, and os for full-grown dogs. They have not done much damage to sheep, but have nearly extermina ted the rabbits. The Dubbo P.P. Board has fixed the following assessments for the year: -Large stock, V/SA per head; .sheep, 2s per 100; carrying capacity of land, three acres to one sheep, and 10 acres to one head of large stock. The board has determined on a very deci ded attitude towards those land holders who are not taking proper precautions to keep the rabbit pest in check. The pe^t is i...
