HORSES ON TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

«. « HORSES ON TERMS. In connection with the new scheme of assistance to settlers, the matter of horses on terms was fully discussed, and it has been decided that settlers will be al lowed to purchase on terms one horse to a maximum price of £30; mo-re valuable animals may be purchased, but in such cases the maximum of assistance will be the amount stated. The terms are one-third deposit, balance is to be repaid in two years by equal quarterly or half-yearly instalments at the option of the purchaser, interest. being added at 5 per cent. The agreement to be signed will be a hiring one, similar to that-used in the case of cows on terms, and it wili contain a clause giving the Commissioner the option of taking the animal over if it be not properly cared for, or unduly depreciated in any way. The actual amount of the advance to be made will be determined in the same way as the value of privately purchased cattle taken over by the Commissioner, i.e., by a responsible officer or represen...

COLLECTION OF STATISTICAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

COLLECTION OF STATISTICAL INFORMATION. The Commissioner has decided 'to go thoroughly into the matter of the collec tion of statistical information regarding the crops grown and the results achieved by settlers on the Irrigation Areas. From time to time information on this import ant matter has been collected by the Commissioner's officers, Tvut it has been of such a fragmentary nature that no general deductions have been possible therefrom. Mr. W. J. Monfries, who is well known all over the settlement, has been appointed to go round and collect com plete data on the lines above indicated, and the management will be glad if settlers will afford Mr. Monfries as much help as possible in bis work, which is one of great importance to the Areas gener ally.

FARM RENTALS AND INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

FARM RENTALS AND INTEREST. Settlers a-re reminded of the fact that the 31st December next will mark the close of another period in connection with the payment of rentals and water rates, and after that date interest will be chargeable on overdue accounts. As has already been pointed out, all blockholders should remember that un kss application is made for suspension ,of rent it must be paid. The conditions governing suspensions are so we'll known that no detailed reference is necessary here. The 31st December -is still a good way off, and, as settlers' hay crops this year will bring them in good returns, no doubt the greater portion of the men who are now in arrears will be able to meet their obligations If, however, through any untoward circumstances they are not able to do' so, suspension shou'd be immediately applied for.

NOTES BY H. R. ALEXANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

NOTES BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Though I do not wish to be' considered an irrigation expert, I would urge many of the settliers on the Areas to test their land for water, and to consider the ap pearance and growth of their crops and trees before they apply additional irriga tions. Many settlers seem to think that they should water ever}7" time water is available without paying any attention whatever to the amount of water already in the soil. In many instances men- are applying water to lland that already has more than, sufficient for the requirements . of the particular crop being grown. It is an easy matter to test the water content of soil. A few shovelsful' of earth removed will soon disclose whether there ^ is a sufficiency of moisture, not only in the top surface soil, but also in the subsoil. A more satisfactory way, perhaps, is to test by means of an. auiger. Much of the land recently tested by ,:!n<struction officers has been found to con tain ample water without the n...

CULTIVATION DEPARTMENT, YANCO. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

CULTIVATION DEPARTMENT, YANCO.

MALTING BARLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

MALTING BARLEY. Last year Mr. J. H. Trethewey plant- . ed malting barley and obtained a satisfac tory return. Had it not been for an unfortunate thunderstorm that happened a1ong just at the critical moment he would have reaped a much bigger crop than he did. probably as much as 50 bushels to the aerie. This year he has planted malting bar ley again, and he reports that his ir-eturn will be hardly as good as it would have been last year had (everything gone, well. The crop will, however, be satisfactory, 30 bushels to the acre being the 'esti mate.

WHITEWASH. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

WHITEWASH. The cooling effect of white paint on a building is very considerable, indeed. This fact is we'l known, and yet the iron on many setters' homes still glints through the trees as the hot sun plays upon it, and inside the good wife suffers unneces sarily . Time and money are the two great fac tors in connection with the making of any farm improvement. In this matter a Utile of the first would be well spent, and that the second is not of great im portance goes without saying if the fol lowing recipe, which is recommended by the Department of Agriculture, stands rain and weather without coming off, as it is said to do. Place enough tallow required fotr the purpose in a large bucket, then lay about the same quantity of good lime (dry) on top of the tallow, i.e., 'equal proportions of each; then pour enough water on to slake the lime. When the heat from the limie has melted the tallow, and all is welf dissolved, stir it thoroughly until all is well mixed; then apply (warm, if po...

General Notes. TRUCKING PIGS. Some time ago a suggestion was made that settlers who wene desirous of send ing pigs to "the metropolitan market should communicate with the manager of the butteir factory, and he would (endea vor to arrange for trucks. So far there has been practically no response to this invitation. As. settlers ana no doubt aware, the matter of obtaining trucks at the pre sent time is one of considerable difficulty, and the greatest possible notice is neces sary in ordeir to insure satisfactory ar rangements being made. Not only so, but the fullest particulars regarding the piigs which will be* available for ship ment should also be given-.
