The Seepage Danger. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

The Seepage Danger. In most matters no one has any time for the man who refuses to be guided by the lessons of experience, but on irriga tion schemes all the world over this gen eral rule, does not s'aem to apply in every case. The Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme is no exception to the rule, and by nothing is this fact better exemplified than by the manner in which water is still being applied to farms that: are cry ing for cultivation rather than moisture. Practically they are "asking for bread and being given a stone." Innumerable articles have beien written on the troubles that follow in the train of irrigation. It has been painted out that smaller crop yields are the natural result; that plant food is dissolved, taken out of reach of the plant root systems and lost; that the area which the available water will serve is reduced, and consequently the ra'tes w*hich individual settlers have to pay to meeit the requirements of the schieme are unduly increased; and that there is grave ...

New Proverbs For Old. For Hog Raisers. A pig on the lucerne is worth two in the stye. Too many grazings spoil the pasture. A sucker saved is a porker earned. For Careless Irrigators. More Waste-Less Feed. Out of sight-out of mind (underground water). Too may leaks spoil the ditch. For Triers Short of Capital. Blocks are not gold to quitters. A cream cheque in need is a friend indeed. Never say die while there's a tine on the cultivator. For the Settlers Generally. Every clod wants a little liming. Look after the fence and the cows will take care of themselves. Better the watering you know than the rain fall you don't know.

Cultivation and Watering The Rotation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

Cultivation and Watering NOTES BYW. McEACHERN. The Rotation. Generally speaking, settlers are usinig the water satisfactorily. There are a few cases where unsatisfactory conditions exist, although to my mind many settlers are using too much water. The bailiffs are, however, giving smaller heads, and although a time limit is not being insist ed on, instructions have been issued that in every case waste of water is to be pre vented as far as possible. During the present dry spell, when there is so much necessity for a good sup ply of water being let down the river to meet the riparian necessities of own ers downstream, it is particularly neces sary that care should be taken in divert ing into the irrigation system no more water than is absolutely necessary for the needs of the settlement. Burrinjuck has not yet reached anything like its full storage capacity. Proportionately to the area at present occupied the storage cap acity of the dam is much less than it will be when the works ha...

Settlers Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

Settlers Meeting. The monthly meeting of settlers was held in the Commissioner's Office on Tues day, the 3rd instant. Although there were not many matters of very great moment on the 'business paper, several interesting discussions took place, on questions which are of more or less im portance to the settlement generality. The Leeton Swimming Bath.-For in stance, during the hot weather everyone has a greater or less interest in the ques tion' of the establishment of a swimming bath. The matter was raised by the Siettlers' Assocation., and Mr. Polking horne, who spoke to the motion for its establishment, pointed out that it should be a payable proposition. He referred to the possibility of utilising the quarry hofe on Leeton Hill for the purpose. The Commissioner replied that it had always been in his mind to turn the quarry hole into a swimming bath, and, as a matter of fact, Mr. Griff en, in the new design of the township, had made the necessary provision, for this to be done by de...

The Pig. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

The Pig. BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Tuberculosis in the Pig. - Great care should be observed by all set tlers in the selection of pigs to be introduced to their farms. The pig is very liable to contract tubercular trouble, and once p.'gs have contracted this fell disease they are of no value at the Bacon Factory or elsewhere. Unfortunately, however, in the majority of cases, the presence of tuberculosis in pigs is not dis covered until after the animal has been slaughtered, and the result is that a set tler with tubercular pigs on his premises may feed them for months and bring them to the bacori-producing stage, and then find that all his time, labor, and fodder has been absolutely wasted. There is no reason at all why pigs should not be kept practically free from tuberculosis on the Irrigation Areas. In a district such as the Riverina, where there is so much sunlight and a dry brac ing climate, the germs of tuberculosis have a very poor chance of getting a hold in any of the pig yards or...

What are You Doing for the Canning Factory? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

What are You Doing for the Canning Factory? The above very pertinent question might be asked of many of our settlers. The Commissioner has added another to the markets which are obtainable at the very door of the farmer by the establish ment of an up-to-date cannery for pro cessing fruit and vegetables. It is at once admitted that nothing very much canning varieties of fruit-or, indeed, any canning varieties of fruit-or, in, fact, any fruit-owing to the fact that but a small percentage of the farms, have been under cultivation for upwards of two years. The factory being now complete-a (liv ing example of the help afforded fin sup plying local markets for the settlers-no doubt the horse sense of our farmers will show them that a fair acreage of canning fruits should be planted next season. Every year that a settfier puis off the planting of his orchard delays the time when he will be able to look to this very attractive form of agriculture as his main revenue producer. Surely theire ...

Our First Dried Fruit. HOW IS IT GOING TO BE CURED? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

Our First Dried Fruit. HOW IS IT GOING TO BE CURED? At the recent settlers' meeting several questions were asked by those interested as to the method which they shoutld adopt in curing and preparing their first dried fruit for market. The matter is one of consid erable importance to the Areas, and Mr. W. McEachern, who has had a great dea. of experience in connection with dried fruit on the Mildura Settlement, has been good enough to furnish information on/ the following points. A further article dealing with another portion -of the subject will be published at a later date, but as the pre parations for drying must t>e made imme diately, since the fruit wi 1 come in early in the new year, the question as to whe ther racks or trays are to be used must be settled at onoe.

SUPPLY OF POSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

SUPPLY OF POSTS. It appears that many orders for posts issued during the last twelve months havie not yet been fully satisfied owing to settlers not taking delivery of them for various reasons. Needless to say, this fact necessitates a considerable amount of work on the accountancy staff, which is not a fair thing, consequently it has been decided that all orders for posts dated previous to the 1st July last are to be cancelled forthwith, and any posts not delivered on orders previous to that, date must, after the appearance of this notifi cation, be covered by a fresh order to be -obtained from the Order Clerk. It is felt that settlers will see the necessity for some action of this kind, as it will actu ally lentail no hardship on anyone, while it will simplify bookkeeping in the Com missioner's office very considerably. It is also a matter for consideration as to whether in future a time limit should not be placed on settlers in connection with the completion of orders issued. On ...

MONEY FROM VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 November 1914

MONEY FROM VEGETABLES. "A man who wants to work and will work intelligently can clear 2500 dollars (£500) a year on 10 acres of land located anywhere within ten miles of the city," is the definite statement of Mr. J. J. Smith, an irrigator on the Rio Grande project, New Mexico, Texas. Mr. Smith's idea is to plant the half of a 10-acre plot with strawberries^ and the other half with vege tables. He states that during the first year of his operations he made £60 per acre out of his vegetables and from £100 to £160 per acre on his strawberries. During the next yeiar, as the strawberries came into bearing, he would plant the balance of his bock to them, and later on revert to vegetables on portion of the holding. A careful .review of our country fails to show one instance where dairying follow ed in a practical way has not worked out successfully to the permanent profit of the people so engaged. On the other hand, in sections where the farmers have de voted themselves entirely to produc...

SEEKING EXPERIENCE. A South African with irrigation experi ence recently called at the Sydney office and inquired wheither there was any pos sibility of his obtaining employment with a settler on the irrigation areas, in order to obtain local knowledge prior to his taking up an irrigation block. He was a young, able-bodied man, and seemed anxious to geit a start. He stated that the matter of wages would not affect the position very materially, his main object being to gain experience, but,^ naturally, he would like some neimuneration. Any settler wishing to communicate with this inquirer will be furnished with his name and address on application to the Leeton or Sydney offices.
