THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

THE FLOWER GARDEN. If the seeds of the annuals mentioned in the last issue are not already sown, no time should be lost. Some people are always successful in raising seedlings, while each repeated effort of others only serves to emphasise to them the poor quality of seed handed out to the unsus pecting publiic by unscrupulous seeds men.. I prefer a box for seed sowing. Lot it be old; if new the wood often swells with the watering and prevents drainage. The box should'be shallow-not more thain a foot deep-and should at this time of the year be placed on the northerly side of a building about four or five feet from the wall. If placed too close the radiated heat from the building is apt to scorch the seedlings. Fresh stable manure is popularly sup posed to be the correct medium for rais ing seeds. . Well-rotted manure will answer, but a little leaf-mould (such as can be obtained from under any pine, box, or gum tree) mixed with equal parts of sand or sandy loam is preferable. Fill the...

A Walk Round the Orchard at the Yanco Experiment Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

A Walk Round the Orchard at the Yanco Experiment Farm. At the present season of the year, when the various fruit trees are either blossom-* ing or setting fruit, a walk round the or chard ft.the Yanco Experiment Farm is extremely interesting. It is perhaps too early to say yet whether the extremely dry winter has or has not ^adversely af fected the coming season's fruit crops, but judging by the present condition of the tiees, it appears that the fruit is set ting satisfactorily. The Citrus Orchard.-The trees in the citrus section have received a thorough watering, and are looking very well. The "Washington Navels" have all been pull ed and sent to market, but the "Late Valeneiais" are still hanging on the tnees. It is the intention of the Manager to have them markeited about Melbourne Cup time, when prices should be good. Generally speaking, Melbourne Cup season is the best in the year for prices, but the Euro pean War may adversely affect the situ ation this year. Owing to the ext...

Correspondence. DAIRY STOCK ON TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

Correspondence. DAIRY STOCK ON TERMS. The Commissioner has directed that the following correspondence on the prospects of dairymen operating on the Areas should be published for the information of set tlers and others interested : Dear Sir,-I was surprised to hear of the views you expressed yesterday regarding the dairying prospects on the Areas, and also the statements : 1. That a large number of the cows sup plied by the Commissioner were culls bought from other herds. 2. That they were sold at prices far in excess of their values, and that settlers had little prospect of paying for them out of their cream cheques and at the same time realising any profits themselves. These are serious allegations against the local management, and I feel that I must make some investigations regarding them. I should be very pleased if you would let me have detailed information regarding these culls, and also the names of some of the settlers who are. suffering under the serious drawback of 'the hig...

DEAR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

DEAR COWS. Mr. M. A. O'Callagfhan, Dairy Expert for the State, and at present on a visit to lieeton, has confirmed the information given by Mr Alexander in the last, issue, of the ''Record," to the effect that the present is a very bad time indeed to pur chase dairy cattle. The season on the coast has, it appears, been an extremely good one and prices are abnormally high, as dairymen are taking the opportunity of stocking up a little after the bad time they have experienced during the last few years. Cows worthy of the name are bringing £10-a price, of course, which is far in excess of their normal value. The necessities of the Areas are not be ing lost sight of, and the matter is beinig kept in view, but it is apparent that the present is not an opportune time to make large purchases for supplying to settlers on terms.

Report from the Dairy Instructor. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

Report from the Dairy Instructor. 1. Working out averages for the year ending June 30th, 1914, it is found each cow milked on the Areas gave a return at the butter factory of a fraction over 19/ per calendar month. The cows actually milking during August or September of the present season would average about 4/ per cow better than 19/. I can name a settler working 13 cows purchased from the Commissioner who last month was paid for 4501b. of butter fat, equal to fully 30/ per cow milked. Mr. should be asked to name the dairyman referred to by him, and the matter could be then fully investigated. Evidently the men complaining are road-grazing dairymen. Mr. Fackender does not know of any set tler in the position mentioned by Mr. . 2. When Jersey bulls are used among cows of other breeds the percentage of brindle calves is always high; a 16 per cent, average of brindles would be con sidered low. Some very fine milking cows are found among brindles. From a breed er's point of view I obje...

CHANGES OF ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

CHANGES OF ADDRESS. Complaints are oiften made by subscri bers to the "Irrigation Record" as to irre gularity in connection with its receipt. In all cases the trouble seems to be with the Postal Authorities. Newspapers are treated as second-class matter, and it is understood that complaints of the kind mentioned are very numerous also with other periodicals. The difficulty also occurs in connection with the non-notificatk>n to the publishers regarding the change of subscribers' ad dresses, and, in order to facilitate the pro per distribution of the paper, subscribers are requested to notify the office imme dia'tely their addresses are changed. This particularly applies to new settlers on the Irrigation Areas who have not yet taken up residence on their blocks. "Already there is an atmosphere of pros perity surrounding the Rochester district which was never present under the regime of dry farming. The settlement can now be best likened to a well-ordered hive from which the drones ...

A WARNING— AGISTMENT OF SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1914

A WARNING AGISTMENT OF SHEEP. Many settlers are at present in.. nego tiation with pastoralists for the agistment of stock-particularly mobs of sheep-and a word of warning on the subject will not be amiss. At first sight it would appear that £1 per acre per month, the (piri-ce which is -being offered 'for the grazing rights of established lucerne, is a very remunerative one, but, as a matter of fact, considerably higher prices are being given in Victoria. One instance was re cently quo tied by the Melbourne "Argus" of the 10th instant, where the sum of £600 has been paid for the use of 50 acres of lucerne lor six months. In another case £750 is being pa'id for a similar area. These prices are considerably in excess of the general offers being made at the pre sent time for lucerne at Yaneo and Mir rool. As a matter of fact, however, the practice of grazing lucerne is one the wis dom of which is very doubtful, no matter what the return, as the injury- and dam* age done by excessive gra...

GRAPE FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

GRAPE FRUIT. In Mr. Mt^ad's^ report, comment on whiclT"was made at "some length in Sep tember 1 issue, he refers to the fact that better returns have been obtained on irri gated areas in California from the produc tion of grape fruit than ordinary citrus culture Grape fruit is little known in New South Wales, and, in the circumstances, a few particulars regarding it has been obtained with a view to amplifying Mr, Mead's remarks. The following informa tion is obtained, from Wiickson's 'Cali fornia Fruits'': Grape fruit is a shaddock (Citrtis decu mand). It has a sour and acrid taste, which fact no doubt suggested its name. Californiian growers have tried to pro duce a "blander" flavor than the usual varieties have, and apparently they helve succeeded in producing a fruit that meets with as much public appreciation as was achieved in eastern markets by Florida growers until a particularly cold snap in 1898 killed the main bulk of the fruit there. As a matter of fact, the growth of gra...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (By Jas. T. Dixon.) Seedlings of zinnia, miniature sunflower, gomphrena, petunia, portulacca, and sal via sown at the beginning of October should before the next i-sue of the "Re cord" appears, be fit for transplanting. Before this work is done, let me emphasise the advantages to be gained by massing. The evenness of bloom, the uniformity in height, the coincidence of the flowering period, all lend an effect to the one variety massed bed, giving it a claim which the uneven, straggling, miscellane ous collections of all the varieties in the catalogue never could aspire to. So let us have separate plots for each of our six varieties. Plant the seedlings in rows, or, if the bed be circular, in rings or if neither rectangular nor circular, let the lines of plantlings follow the contour of the bed. Regularity makes for easy working and watering. Zinnias and sunflowers should be put out about 2ft. apart, gomphrena, salvia, and petunia about 20in., and por tulacca about ...

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. THEIR MAKING, HANDLING, AND MARKETING. (Continued from last issue.) Hay-loading Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. THEIR MAKING, HANDLING, AND MARKETING. By F. DITZELL, Assistant Inspector of Agriculture, in the "Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W." (Continued from last issue.) Hay-loading Machinery. Side delivery rakes and hay loaders, or sweep rakes and swinging stackers, are not used to any extent in New South Wales. Their use may be advisable on the larger fields inland, where a grower desires to get- a hay cut for home con sumption mainly once or twice in the season, and where the conditions for hay making are often ideal, i.e., hot arid dry, but they are hardly to be recommended for use in our lucerne hay-raising districts where good quality hay for the Sydney market is produced. The risk from dam age by rain or dew while in the swath or windrow in these districts would be greater than in those just mentioned, and on account of more uneven curing in the windrow and the handling in machine loading there would also be a greater loss, of leaf by shattering. ; Mr. C. Kelly, o...
