He acknowledges that it means cutting with the reaper and binder, stool ing, stacking and thrashing, which is very expensive, and that is, the reason why there is so much burning of. straw in the fields after harvest. To got over this diffilulty, the farmer' in qucation caplains how he has hit upon a middle course, so as to avoid the ex jpnseW- of ?the :thrashing : system, and at .th' fi tinie time reitaiar' tlh cheaper method of 'hbarvesting, by cutibiig the -straw after tfhe stripper.

FROM MILDURA TO CALIFORNIA AND BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

FROUM MILDURA TO CALIFORNIA AND BACK. Two prominent Mildura settlers have just returncd from an extended holiday abroad, during which each visited Cali forbia, where the industries are very simi lar- to thlose. of. the. Murray:.settlemrent. Mr. E. J; Roberts, who, besides being a grower, is the proprietor of a packing factory, was grcally impressed with the use made of refrigerator cars in conveying Californian fruit to the Eastern inarkets. Without this method the fresh fruit trade would be of very small dimensions. Wi'th a similar provision it would be possible to put the entire peachl crop of Mildurs on the Melbourne market. Speaking of the great Californian "frost," Mr. Roberts informed the "Culti vator" the trouble was due to an electrical wind rather than to frost in the.ordinary acceptance of the term. It would be hard to estimate the real damage, but he saw orchards of twenty years' growth that had been completely wiped out. On one large estate the proprietary are putting up...

HORTICULTURAL NOTES FROM MILDURA [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

HORTICULTURAL NOTES FRO-M MIaLDURA BY VERAX. The present hot spell of weather is bringing the fruit on rapidly, and the cur rants are coloring -up well. Everything promises ani earlier season than last year, when currant picking did not .fairly start before the 12th February, owing to the rain which fell on thlie 5th and 6th of that month. One orchard manager exipects to make a start fully a week before that date this year. It is a very noticeable fact in regard to the currants, that on those vines cinctured with a doublE cut and the strip removed, the fruit is larger, and far more advanced in ripeness than that on vines growing in the same raw which were given the single cut; while on one or, two vines left un cinctured for anl experiment the fruit 'is small, the biunches straggly, and the crop not half that on the double cut vines.
