SPREADING THE NET FOR THE FARMER. To the Editor "The Farmer and Settler." [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

SPREADING THE NET FOR THE FARMER. To the Editor 'The Farmer and Settler.' Sir,— In 'The Farmer and Settler' of 1 8th instant 'J.F.' and 'David Reid, jun.,' have indulged in some strong and uncomplimentary language regarding the views of two previous correspondents, 'Wombat' and 'Dinton Vale,' and fur ther, 'David Reid, jun.,' is very scornful over the fact that these two writers have not disclosed their names. Now, I have no idea as to what their mntive was for adopting this course, but I may state that my reason for adopting the same course is simply that my name would carry little or no weight. It is all very well for 'David Reid, jun,' when his case is lacking in facts and arguments, to make up for the deficiency by brandishing his name before the eyes of the public, but I have no mind to adopt such an expe dient, and if I had need, it would be vain to do so. Both 'J.F.' and 'David Reid, jun.,' seem to think that the farmers of New South Wales have sliort memories and not much in...

THE IRON INDUSTRY. FOREIGN DUMPING FEARED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE IRON INDUSTRY. FOREIGN DUMPING FEARED. The Tariff Commission has recently been taking evidence in Sydney in rela tion to the local iron industry. Mr. W. Thornley, general manager of the Esk bank Ironworks, Lithgow (William Sand ford, Limited), said there was little doubt that so soon as' the firm became active competitors in the pig-iron market, it would be subjected to ' dumping' from outside manufacturers. He did not advo cate a high protective duty, but just suf ficient to prevent unfair American compe ?*? * t- -i /-vn ? e nif rol nnr r*nr\ f TMt /a A rv- ArirQ n iron industry could not have been built up but for protection, and he had astounded a member of a Steel Trust in New York by telling him that the attempt was going to be made to establish works in Austra- ? lia without an adequate protective duty.

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX AND ITS USE. (Per favor of "The Farmer and Settler.") [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

A PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX AND ITS USE. (Per favor of 'The Farmer and Settler.') By John Flanagan, Gunbar. Sir, — 1 see that three writers in your issue of 21st ultimo condemn the pro posed graduated land tax ; therefore, with your indulgence, I will defer what I have to say about railways, and deal with the subject at the head of this letter. Scores of years before Mr. Watson or a Labor party were heard of in Australia, many letter-writers to the press, myself among the number, were advocates for to say that we are inclined to vote with Labor; rather would it be more correct to say that Labor has come round to adopt our idea about the subject. The laborer and the producer are equally re quired to build up the nation. Some of each class have absurd notions, and say absurd things. But the great bulk of the people will sift the absurdities from the sensible proposals, and the latter only in the end can remain as a law on our Stat ute Book. We can see by the displace ment of political part...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. THE COMING REVOLUTION. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. THE COMING REVOLUTION. I. By W. A. Ewers. Now that a comprehensive system of Shire Government has actually found a place on the Statute Book, and will come into effective operation in a few months, it is interesting to review the position, and also to consider how best to launch the system with the least p.ossible amount of friction and dissatisfaction. That both these factors will be noticeable during the earlier stages of the Act's operation is almost inevitable, as probably the ma jority of those primarily affected by the coming revolution in State administra tion (i.e., the landholders) have not yet realis'ed the fact that the tremendous al teration in the incidence of taxation must seriously affect some of them, in largely adding to their burden, whilst perhaps lightening the load of others. This re sult was well unders'tood in political circles, and is probably accountable for the fact that the introduction of Local Government was deferred so long. Far mers a...

POLITICAL POINTS. OUR PUPPET PRIME MINISTER. THE CRY OF BAAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

POLITICAL POINTS. OUR PUPPET PRIME MINISTER. THE CRY OF BAAL. By 'Mentor.' Only extreme partisans of Mr. Deakin will be inclined to regard the strictures which have been passed upon that gen tleman's recent political utterances as un deserved. As expositions of Ministerial policy they are woefully wanting. If the Prime Minister is not in a position to boldly declare what the Cabinet plans are regarding pending legislation he is cer tainly not fit for his post. The only con clusion that can be arrived at from his Ballarat and Adelaide speeches is that he has for the present no definite plans. He is weakly waiting to be driven by the Labor party, pleading meanwhile with Mr. Watson and his followers not to be too hard on him. The most that can be gathered from his empty deliverances is that he wants a little more protection, and he will be glad if the Trades Hall coterie will graciously condescend to as sist him without being too rigorous in the exactions they will make as a 'quid pro ...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT ON THE SOUTH COAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

CLOSER SETTLEMENT ON THE SOUTH COAST. Now that closer settlement is in the air, it may be interesting to some of our poli ticians to learn from the following extract from a South Coast journal, what has been going on for the last twenty or thir ty years in one of the — at one time — most 'closely settled districts in this State. Says the 'Reporter' :— Mr. J. R. Knapp, of Milton, has purchased the three farms occupied by Messrs. T. Britton, H. Mcr Leod, and C. Fraser, respectively, of Bo long. The purchase price was ,£32 per acre.' % * * If in the ordinary course of events Mr. Knapp was merely taking over these three farms from some other landowner, and purposed leasing them to the present occupiers, nothing very serious could probably be complained of. But when, as we understand, Mr. Knapp purposes do ing what scores of others have been doing for years, viz., making the three farms in question one big farm, to support only one family in opulence, whereas it sup ported three previous...

A STATE LAND BANK AND THE DAIRYMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

A STATE LAND BANK AND THE DAIRYMAN. Says an exchange : — 'Queensland's Ag ricultural Bank, the constitution of wlych was liberalised last session of Parliament, is acting as a stimulant to the rapidly ex panding, dairy industry. Farmers are now given advances with which to purchase stock and construct improvements. The rate of interest charged is 3 per cent., and borrowers have 25 years in which to pay their loans.' * * * -I- T T' If New South Wales had a Land Bank where bona-fide settlers could borrow money at 3 per cent., and we had a Gov ernment like. New Zealand, that would force open those estates holding rich agri cultural land such as Prichard, Numba, Hay, Coolangatta, Dangar, Singleton, and a score or more of others, this great country would soon, forget its lands frauds, gigantic as they have been during the past seventy or eighty years. Most of our dairy farmers have been, paying 6, S and 10 per cent; for money at half value. No wonder they are down !

THE DAIRYMAN. TABLES OF COMMERCIAL BUTTER COMPUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE DAIRYMAN. By Frank McCaffrey. TABLES OF COMMERCIAL BUTTER COMPUTATIONS. ? We have before us a copy of tables of commercial butter computations, for the use of creameries, butter factories, etc., which has evidently been most carefully compiled by Mr. Percy A. Scarr, manager of the Raymond Terrace Dairy and Pro duce Company, Limited. In his introduc tory remarks, Mr. Scarr states as follows: — 'The chart from which these computa tions have been made is recommended by the Government authorities N.S.W., as correct, and will no doubt eventually be come the standard use in the industry for computing1 results as between the supplier and the factory.' Farther on he states, under the heading, 'Use of the Tables,' where the- butter fat tests have been ar rived at, the computations are found in the following manner — 'The page having the test required at the head is turned up, and against the pounds of cream will be found the commercial butter in pounds in that amount of cream at the butt...

THE ADULTERATION OF BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

THE ADULTERATION OF BUTTER. The following is an extract from . the London 'Times,' published nearly fifty years ago. The article is headed 'Irish v. Dutch (?) Butter' :— ' 'With regard to' the mixtures foisted on the London public as butter,' the duty on -. which is now to-be abolished, it is stated by respectable houses in the trade that the usual consumption of Irish butter at this period of the year in London and the surrounding ; districts is fr ..about- i 6,000 casks weekly, but that this year it is under 3000 casks— a. fact attributable entirely to the immense importation of stuff called butter, from Holland and other foreign countries. -In s'ummer, when the make of . butter is at its largest, these, countries , shipped from. 6000 to 7000 casks weekly. At present they send' from ,13,006 to 14,000 casks a week, when' it is impossible ( to '.'' produce that quantity in its genuine state. ' Of the 13,000 casks more than two thirds are adulterated with farina, beef suet, and other...

WACGA. First Farmers' Fair. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

WACGA. First Farmers' Fair. The first Farmers' Fair inaugurated by the Wagga Branch was a pronounced suc cess, and should prove the forerunner of many throughout the State. The Mayor (Alderman Jos. Hayes) per formed the opening ceremony, being in troduced to a large assemblage of visi tors by Mr. B. B. Bennett, president of the branch. He claimed some acquain tance with agriculture, inasmuch as he could milk a cow, whereupon a voice from the visitors added 'And drink the milk.' strides that agriculture had made in this district. The farmers appeared to get a better grip of the management of their farms, with the result that farming was beginning to pay them. He then proceed ed to discourse on the question of protec tive duties, contending that the farmers, as producers, had everything to lose and nothing to gain by their imposition. He trusted that the farming interests would so progress that there would be a much larger production of wheat for export than there was to-day. They wan...

WASTED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

WASTED MILK. For years, writes Eustace Miles in the 'London Daily Mirror,' L have made my chief food basis some form of powder manufactured from the separated milk — precisely such separated milk as is daily poured, down our sewers in thousands of gallons ; precisely such separated milk as is despised by the ignorant poor; but, when dried, made up in packets, freely advertised, and decently prepared, is re gularly used by thousands of -the less ignorant well-to-do. Separated milk, milk from , which the cream has been skimmed ? in some parts it is called 'skim milk.' This ssnarated milk— of which I believe that one company alone, pours away 3000 gallons a day — can' be dried at once, so that there is no need for it *o contain preservative chemicals. It has nearly . the same body-building (pro teid) value as ordinary milk, and in many cases it is more digestible. When it has been dried and converted into powder it should retail, in large quantities, at con siderably less than 6d. per ...

CHOOSING A BROOD SOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 11 April 1906

CHOOSING A BROOD SOW. When selecting a brood sow, go to a pen where a number of gilts are kept and the fattes't and best developed ones will always come to the trough first. From these select a brood sow. The gilt selected should come from a large litter and from a sow that is a good feeder, gentle and easy to handle. For if she is gentle and kind and a good feeder, she will usually be a good milker, a very essential point- i» a brood sow. One cannot judge accurately of the milking qualities in a gilt, but a chunky, heavy boned, short legged sow is not as ffnft/1 o Will bar *a c ai^a iififV\ r% lnm dta** body and legs, and less rounded sides. Under all circumstances, avoid one that is wild, or nervous, or has a low back. The legs must be strong and straight. The sow must stand entirely on her toes and should show ten or twelve teats. The age at which to breed depends on the maturity more than the age. A gilt that has been properly handled will weigh 200 pounds or more at eight month...
