FARM AND GARDEN. THE BERRL ALLOTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 31 October 1913

| FflRM HNP 6HRPEN. [Conducted by ths Ras!bi,ek.] THE BERRI ALLOTMENTS. In last week's issue I ventured to criticise the way in which the land now being offered.ior allotment at! Bern has been cut jup. I am glad to learn from Mr Loveday, tSe Superintending Surveyor of the Irrigation Department, that an opportunity will be given by the l,and Board for bettering the sub division. If applicants, that is to say, desire smaller blocks, every endeavour will be made to have the land further subdivided to meet their requirements. The first sub division has been made to suit the existing channels, land as the slopes commanded by ..these are rather long, the cutting up of the land intc small areas is not Altogether an easy matter. Subsidiary channels will be made as required for any further subdivision. This is very satis factory, so far as it goes. The trouble often is, however, that the applicant for land, knowing little or nothing about the working of an irrigated block, is apt to over est...

IRRIGABLE AREAS EXTENDING. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 31 October 1913

IRRIGABLE AREAS EXTENDING. Some reference was made last week to the comparative slowness ' with which land in the Berri Irri gation Area is being allotted. At the same time occasion was taken to compliment the Department on the thorough , manner in vrhich its work is being done. A great deal of that work does not appearon tHe surface. Chatting over the 'phone with Mr I^oveday, I learn that the survey and exami nation of the land within1 the Berri end Cobdogla areas is being pushed forward with all possible expedition. Xt is especially desired to gain as accurate an idea as possible of the total area whichinay be embraced in these schemes* When this has been done, I gather, the actual woik of settlement will probably proceed a good deal more rapidly than at present. L v The extent xjf jthe irrigable, area "within siglit" is continually enlarging. The completion of a preliminary survey of the land that may be commanded from the river at the Cobdogla woolshed has just added . another 9...

TO INCREASE FRUIT SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 31 October 1913

TO INCREASE FflUlT SALES. We have had many wails re specting the alleged overproduc tion of dried fruits in Australia, but very little has been done .to stimu late an increased consumption of those fruits. With the develop ment of the distillery business on the river the pressing; need, from the growers standpoint, of an in creased consumption has been per ceptibly reduced. But it has not been done away with, Though Renmark has elected to stand still in this matter, the area under irrigation in South Australia, and in Australia generally, is now rapidly increasing. Aud, how-1 ever much settlers who are them selves dependent on the fruit In dustry may urge on new settlers the duty of growing crops that will not come into competition with the products of the established frui areas, yet nothing is more reason ably certain than that new settlers will turn their attention to those industries which the experience of the older Irrigationists has proved to be most profitable, And, so far as...

RISKS OF MOTOR DRIVING. HOW ACCIDENTS MAY HAPPEN. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 31 October 1913

RISKS OF MOTOR DRIVING. how accidents may happen. Mr. G. B. Woodman,- one of Ren mark's most experienced car drivers, wag good enough to give a repre sentative of this paper his views as to how the terrible accident which lately cost poor Koland Cudmore his life came about, 'adding thereto a lew reminiscences from hie own. ex periences. " It is probable," said Mr. Wood man, " that the late Mr. Cudmore was driving at a- fair pace and sud denly struck a bad place, such as a smooth flat clay surface with a small film of water upon it. A light car striking this at from ten miles per hour upwards would be apt, unless the driver was very careful, to side slip badly. Whsn a car side slips, if the ground is very wet and slippery it naturally turns complete rs' xound, because of the momentum set up in the side slip. " A condition in which a car may! turn over is when the ground is only; sufficiently wet to start the motor eide slipping, and this must have been the casq with Cudmore's car Pro...
