AN ORIGINAL CHECK OR STOP FOR HEAD DITCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

AN ORIGINAL CHECK OR STOP FOR HEAD DITCHES. -Many ideas are in use on the Areas for making checks for head ditches. Mr. Ross Reid has one which is cheap and effective. He is trying some checks which consist merely ^of a block o*f earth across the head ditch, through which he has inserted two or more of the galvanised iron sluice-boxes now being turned ourt in large numbers at the Yanco Joinery Works. These sluice boxes consist of nothing more or less than a length of down-piping fitted with a slide at one end. Mr. Reid finds that al though there is a little leakage through the pipe-since iron never fits quite tightly against iron-yet for all practical purposes they act very well indeed. It was his intention to put in concrete checks, but hie is so pleased with the way his idea is working that he is satisfied it is well worth an extensive trial. The expense is a-very trifling matter-possibly a couple of shillings per check.

PLANTS THROUGH THE POST. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

PLANTS THROUGH THE POST. Complaints are still being received that settlers, in spite of the repeated warning given, are receiving plants through the post. It is a difficult matter to check the receipt of such parcels, and in view of the risk of the introduction of pests which settlers are taking in bringing par cels of plants from other centres, it is difficult to understand how it is that com-, mon-sense is not more commoply shown. A final warning is now given that the practice must be stopped, and rigid pro secution will follow any offender against the regulations in this regard. All plants brought to the Areas, whether by post or otherwise, should be accompanied by a certificate to the effect that they have been inspected and found free from dis ease.

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. THEIR MAKING, HANDLING, AND MARKETING. By F. DITZELL, Assistant Inspector of Agriculture, in the " Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W." (The following notes on "Lucerne Hay and Chaff" have already appeared in the " Agricultural Gazette," but the import ance, of the subject dealt with is so great to irrigators all over the State that the Commissioner has deemed it 'advisable to reprint the article in the " Record." The balance of Mr. Ditzell's notes will be published next issue.) As the above title indicates, this paper deals only with the making, handling, and marketing of lucerne hay and. chaff, and no attempt is made to deal with any of the cultural operations required to ac tually produce the crop fit for cutting for hay, or with the lucerne seed crop. These have already been fully dealt with in " Farmers' Bulletin," No. 37, entitled " Lucerne," and published by the Depart ment of Agriculture, which may be ob tained free upon application to the Under Secretary. ...

Settlers Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

Settlers Meeting. A fairly well attended meeting of sett lers was held in the Commissioner's office at Leeton, on Tuesday, 6th instant, when the following matters were discussed: Surrendered Farms. (a) Method of Valuing.-The Commis sioner explained that the Board for deal ing with surrenders consisted of two repre sentatives of the settlers, Messrs. Hogan and Simpson, and an independent chair man, Mr. McDonald, who had no connec tion with the Commission whatever. Any settler who considered that the evidence placed before the Board by the Commis sioner's valuer was incorrect or unfair had full power to call whatever evidence he considered necessary in rebuttal. The meeting was in agreement that the pre sent system, as explained, met all the necessities of the case. (b) Goodwill of Surrendered Farms. A long discussion on this point took place, but it was pointed out by the Commis sioner that until the statutory five years' residence had been completed by a sett ler and the grant issue...

Savings Bank Loans. NO FURTHER ADVANCES AT PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

Savings Bank Loans. NO FURTHER ADVANCES AT PRESENT. It is with great regret that the an nouncement is made that the Commis sioner has received a communication from the Savings Bank authorities, dated 1st October, to the effect that a decision has been arrived at not to proceed with any further loan business at the present time. Applications which are with the valuer, or which have already been valued, will be duly considered, but no new applica tions will be entertained. The reason assigned by the. bank is the difficulty of financing. Funds for loans have to be raised by the sale of debentures. The present is a most unfavorable time for negotiations with debentures, and the de cision referred to has been arrived at as a 'result. In these circumstances the Commissioner desires settlers' attention to be specially directed to the provision of the " Irriga tion Act," which allows of the suspension of rent. Very few settlers have, up to the present, made application for suspen sion of re...

The Value of Lime, [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

The Value of Lime; The lapse of time only serves to make clearer the fact that to get the best re sults from their soil, many settlers will have to go thoroughly into the question of treatment with lime. In a recent state ment made by Professor Hall, the chair man of the Agricultural Section of the recent Science Congress, particular stress was laid on the beneficial effects of lime to soil generally, and he stated definitely that, in his opinion, its application was more necessary than farmers all over the world seemed to think. The " British Agricultural Gazette"" is also hammering in the* same truth, vide the following'ex tract from a recent issue ' " The gospel of lime is one that agricul tural lecturers should continue to preach, for the most progressive farmers have long since realised the indispensibility of* this material as being essential to fertility; there are many others who are still care less as to whether their land is deficient in lime, and never even take the troub...

Dairy Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

Dairy Farming. NOTES BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Rotation Fodders.-The millets as gene ral crops will be practically all sown by the time this issue of the " Record" reaches settlers, but any opportunity that presents itself for sowing millet as a catch crop should be taken advantage of, that is to say, when the early maize crop has been removed, if it be then too early to plant barley or wheat for winter fodder, there will still be time to get in a catch crop of millet on that block of land be fore it is laid down with the winter crop. Now is the time to thoroughly prepare land for the main crop of maize and sor ghum. As already pointed out, early grown maize on the Areas is, as a rule, of very little value from a grain-growing producer's point o'f view. The later sown crops tassell and mature their grain at a season of the year when the sun's heat is not quite, so extreme as it is about Christmas time. The consequence is maize crops sown from November onwards through December have a bette...

SETTLERS' COMPLAINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

SETTLERS' COMPLAINTS. Some time ago we drew attention to the fact that the Sub-Manager was to person ally interview all ' settlers in connection with the various matters which brought them to - the head. office at Leeton from time to time. In connection with this matter, a case has been brought under the notice of the Commissioner, and under his instructions an investigation has been made, and it has been ascertained that a certain settler called an excessive number of times at one of the departments in connction with a sum of money which was due to him by the Commission. The Com missioner considers that 'similar delays may be obviated by a settler calling on the Sub-Manager, in the event of his not obtaining satisfaction in the particular de partment where his claim is being dealt with. The Commissioner therefore wishes settlers to understand that in cases where a settler feels there is undue delay in obtaining his just requirements, he should call directly on Mr. Digby, and lodge ...
