A NEW GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 10 June 1904
A NEW GRASS. Tan " Rhodes" grass, introduced from South Africa, appears to be giving great eatisfao tion to those who have given it a trial, in New South Wales. Mr. Sylvestor Brown, of Ninnembab, Singleton, has been experi menting with two varieties" of it,, named Ohloris Fisgata and Ohloris Barbyta. He considers they ard two of the finest feed grasses that have been introduced into th State. Paspalum does well in the Hunter River Valley, but Mr. 'Brown thinks more highly of the new grasses. Ohloris Visgate has alsobaeen tried at the Wagga experi mental Farm with m'rked'sunooess, and Mr. M'Keown speaks highly of its drought re sisting qualities. The late deoil Rhodes took a great interest in this grass, and went to much expenses in cultivating it because of its wonderful drought.re3istinugqualities.

On The Land. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 10 June 1904
On The Land. (By "C " in the S. 4. S. Journal.) TuEas is a lot of wail and sentiment expres seed through the papers of late years of the woes of people who have settled on the land. This sentiment is constantly being exprea sed in prose and verse, of the " ups and downs," especially the " downs," of these people. Not wishing to appear dogmatic and unsympathetic myself, I venture to say that this sort of thing is mistaken sentiment and often mere grovel. These wails, in effRct, describe the pluck of the man who settles on the land under severe laws, his constant toil under the great difficulties to make a living, and his battles with bad seasons, etc. Well, granted all these difficulties are his, there is no need to wail over it, for, after all, his difficulties are no worse than those which befall or beset the man who is in business in the town or city. The general rush that has been going on-and will continue to go en--for land, shows that there is something in it. The matter'of a ...

A NOTORIOUSDINGO SRo 0. ONx Sunday night last the residents of Weejasper . were rejoiced to hear that a dingo, which had been caneing mnch havoc amongst the sheep at that place had been destroyed. For some considerable tim, the animal has-been waging war with the settlers' sheep, killing a great many. 'The dinp'o was verylwary, and a great many bnn. ter's were quite nonplussed as is need to avoid the traps which were set.
