Fruit Culture. NOTES FOR OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

Fruit Culture. NOTES FOR OCTOBER. By W. J. Allen. Citrus Planting'.-In districts where irri gation is practised the early spring is usu ally considered' the best time for planting and arrangements should be made to this end immediately the frosty season is over, which is to wards, the end of August or the beginning of September. While citrus trees can be planted at al; most any time, particularly when grown on the Areas, it is better to plant them as soon as possible, and settlers who still have any trees should endeavour to put them in immediately and so ensure that they will make considerable growth and be well established before the ensuing win ter. In removing them from the nursery they should be carefully dug, and if possible puddled and taken direct to the orchard, wherei they should be planted the same day. As explained in last issue, the ground should be weir supplied with moisture, and if at all dry, a trickle of water "should fol low the planter, but even with the water fo...

SECTIONAL MEETINGS SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

SECTIONAL MEETINGS SETTLERS. Mr. Alexander desires it to be known that he is prepared to hold sectional meet: ingvS of settlers in any part of the Areas at any time or place that may be suitable to settlers, with a view to im parting instruction on any subject re lating to animal husbandry. Arrange ments have been made for Mr. Alexander to deliver a lecture on pig farming at Leej ton at an early date, but it is recognised that it is a great inconvenience for settlers in outlying sections of the Areas to come to Leeton after the day's work is over. If applications by any body of settlers are made to Mr. Alexander for a lecture at any private house, or elsewhere, he will be pleased to give the matter every consideration, and arrange to meet their wishes. Mr. Alexander asks for as much notice as possible, in ordeir that he might make satisfactory arrangements. His offer is one which should be largely avails ed of.

General Notes. THE AREAS' PATRIOTIC EFFORTS. The work in connection with the Irriga tion Areas' branch of the Red Cross So ciety is proceeding apace. It is hoped that shortly 40 complete outfits will be forwarded to the headquarters of the Red .Gross Society. In addition, the branch has in hand over £70 in cash. This highly satisfactory result is due in a large mea sure to the zeal and enthusiasm of the president (Mrs. L. A. B. Wade), whose efforts to further the work of the branch since its inception have been untiring. The committee of the Local Patriotic Fuind is also working hard. At a recent meeting a Jersey cow donated by Mr. M. A. Q'Callaghan, a Berkshire boar by Mr. H. R.

The Flower Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

The Flower Garden. BY J. T. DICKSON. [Mr. J. T. Dickson, head master of Lee ton Public School, is one of the most successful flower gardeners on the Areas. He has been in the west for a number of years, and has made a hobby of flower production. The fine show of bloom to be seen at present in front of the bache lors' quarters at the Main Camp, Leeton, is the result of his efforts to a very large extent, and it affords proof that he knows the blooms to plant in order to obtain satisfactory results. Mr. Dickson has kindly consented to give readers of the " Record" the benefit of his experience in a series of notes each issue, and judging by the first article, which is published hereunder, they should prove of considerable benefit to horticul turists who are inexperienced in regard to western conditions.-Ed.] What to grow now ? This is a matter very easily decided. All the amateur gardener has to . do is to turn up his Anderson or Yates, or Searl, and consult the list prescribed. He fi...

Ideals in Soils. (Continued from previous issues.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

Ideals in Soils. By H. J. Braund. (Continued from previous issues.) Reference has been made to the great "triune" of the agricultural kingdom, i.e., the physical, chemical, and biological con ditions in a soil. They have truly been termed the factors of fertility. For, if any one of these factors is deficient just so surely is the productivity of the soil weakened or stopped altogether This brings us to the discussion of "barren ness" in soils and some of the main causes. Alkalies and the Areas. ,r. The minds o'f some will immediately fly to "Black Alkali" or "White Alkali." In the wniter's opinion, however, neither of these .causes of sterility in soils is going to affect the M/urrumbidgee Irrigation Areas. Barrenness, may be caused by the pre sence of one or more of a host of differ ent substances in the soil in excessive quantities. As practically all the land used for irrigation purposes in these Areas is remarkably ri'ch in plant food, and does not contain any of these toxic su...

Electric Light and Power. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

Electric Light and Power. Owing to the present crisis, the policy of the Commissioner in regard to the Electrical Branch, for the limmediate fu ture at any rate, will be to develop the supply load for electric power around the existing electric supply lines rather than push forward new trunk lines. Any per sons requiring electric supply close to ex isting lines can generally be supplied with out much difficulty, and in a fairly short space of time, and it is these persons that the electrical engineer is now particularly desirous of connecting to the mains. It may be here repeated that the Com missioner brings the electric supply 100 feet inside the applicant's boundary free of charge, but the cost of any extension beyond that distance must be borne by the customer himself. This is generally a very small matter. In oases where the applicant puts up his own poles and wires, the cost can be kept very low. Where only a few lights are to be served, then a very light copper wire will suff...

PACKING OF CITRUS FRUIT TREES IN CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

PACKING OF CITRUS FRUIT TREES IN CASES. The cases in which trees are to be packed should be strengthened by nailing well all over, the top of course to be left open. Uprights of 4 x 1 Oregon battens or simi lar timber a few inches higher than the trees should be nailed on each end of the case and cross-stayed by similar timber at the top to allow the covering of hessian to be tacked all over and around the trees. The roots should be well puddled in a thick solution of decomposed manure and earth made into the consistency of heavy syrup with water. A mixture of light soil and sawdust should be carefully packed through the roots sufficient to well cover them, leaving the trees in a heeled-in state in the cases. Make sure that the soil and sawdust are thoroughly moistened before using. The cases should be lined with hes sian or other suitable material, to prevent the air from coming in contact with the roo-ts through any cracks which may exist in the case.

DESTRUCTION OF SURVEY PEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

DESTRUCTION OF SURVEY PEGS. On more than one occasion attention has been drawn through the columns of the " Record" to the fact that some set tlers exhibit carelessness in removing or interfering with survey pegs, with which it is not necessary to tamper in connec tion with the working of their blocks. The practice is one liable to cause consider able confusion and waste of time in con nection with the work of the Survey Branch, and in the circumstances settlers are requested to take every possible means to prevent interference with these im portant landmarks. It is, of course, recognised that in some< instances pegs ..will have to be removed in the working of the farm, but the ones to which particular reference is made are the corner pegs on the boundaries of blocks. *

A Continuation Secondary School and an Ag ricultural High School have been amongst the suggestions made with a view to giv ing effect to the wisih of the community in this regard. As a : certain amount of misconception appears to exist oin this matter the Com missioner took the opportunity of invit ing the District Inspector of Schools, Mr. D. J. Hayes, B.A. (who happened to be on the Areas looking into the question or the establishment-of primary schools), to attend the recent settlers' meeting at Lee ton, and explain the position of his De partment in regard to the matter of Sec ondary Education. Mr. Hayes was good enough to accept the Commissioner's of fer, and he gave settlers present a very clear and lucid explanation of the posi tion from the point of view o(f the Edu cational authorities.
