SUCCESSFUL CHILDREN'S CONCERT. BY RBNMARK WEST SCHOOL. A concert in Kid of the funds of the Renmark West State school was i held in the Renmark Institute last 1 Saturday evening, when, the parents ( and townspeople rolled up in full force. The audience was rewarded by 'a successful 'performance and; their frequent applause was not only sym pathetic but evidently a proof of appreciation of the merits of the performers. A feature in the affair was the keen interest taken in its success by thq pupils themsslves— seniQrs and juniors o'f both sex 36— showing that a real esprit de corps exists in the school. It need hardly be stated that this is duei to the able* training by the headteacher, Mr. Golds worthy and his assistants. Misses E. A. McLean and J. M. Dalton. The harmony of the even in? was contributed to by Mini Brokate. the accomDanist. Before the ringing of the National Anthem Mr. Golds worthy ■&lt; returned thanks for the support rendered to the object of the -concert by...

THE IRRIGATION DEPARTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 24 October 1913
THE IRRIGATION DEPARTMENT la the Pioneer last week at indignant subscriber complained o: (delay in the offering of irrigabl* blocks for allotment, and also ol tlie general failure of the Govern ment to advertise the attractions ol the irrigation areas. The extension of Berri is cer tainly proceeding somewhat slowly, though the announcement that another allotment of blocks is aboul to be made removes - the immediate ground of our correspondent's com plaint. And it is announced that, in addition to those now offered, there are a further 20 irrigable anc four non-irrigable blocks wfcicl have not yet been dealt with by the Land Board, Delay is partly to be accounted for, one suspects, by the general South Australian policy oi keeping the Departments under manned. | Ceitainly, more might be done it I the way of legitimate advertising, | not ou'y with the purpose oi acquainting the world outside witl the advantages ostered by the irriga tion areas, but also for the sake o! disseminating i...

ORANGES FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 24 October 1913
ORANGES FOR EXPORT. I am indebted to my good friend, Mr A. S. Hopkins, of Messis, G. Wood, Son & Co., for an article, clipped from the London " Daily Telegraphon the expott of oranges from South Africa. A good business is now being done in the export of peaches, apricots, plums and pears from the Caps to London, and an encouraging start has been made with the orange. The article stresses the fact that for oranges there is a bare market for three months in the year—from June to September^—just ill the summertime wliea gooi . fruit of this class is most welcome. But it also emphasizes the statement made more than once in these columns that if the marketof the millions is to be captured, it must be made possible to retail oranges at something like a penny apiece. Ren mark navels shipped to London have hitherto brought double "this price wholesale, [ and the not inconsiderable class of ' wealthy folk will probably always l be prepared to pay high prices for the best fruit. (In t...
APPLES FOR THE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 24 October 1913
APPLES FOR THE RIVES. Though apples of > certain kinds do remarkably well on the river, the prospects of building up a profitable trade in river grown frail of this kind has be-'ti niugli ques tioned. It was pleasant, therefore, to learu from Mr Quinn (as I did ia Adelaide, during show week) that in his opinion there is an un doubted opening for the apple from the river. Fruit develops earlier here than in the regular apple disiricts, and this is where the riversider's opportunity comes in. Shipping of export apples starts each year about February 10, and, owing to the difficulty- of getting good fruit early iu the season, the first two or three boats are laden with very inferior stuff. There is a good opening, Mr Quinn thinks, for some 10,000 cases from the . river for these early boats. The varieties recommended by Mr Quinn. for this purpose are the Jonathan, Cleopatra and Dunn's .Seediinsr. Touching the question of apple varieties far the river, Mr F. Ashenden, head gardener f...

Some years ago the reserve on the river bank at the back qf the Reamark post office and polite sta tion was dedicated to thp Rentnarii Town District Council as a recrea tion reserve for th® use of Renmark residents.
