LIGHTENING THE WIFE'S LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

LIGHTENING THE WIFE'S LABOR. "Tohn," said a tired Kansas woman (ac cording to the "Wyoming Bulletin"), "why can't I have the power to help in my work around the house?" "You seem to have cornered all the labor-saving ma chinery." There is a lot in the question, and it is remarkable that women are not beginning to ask it on the Irrigation Areas. The electric motor is always available, and rightly used, it would soon make itself a necessity to every home, and take the backache out of housework. Washing day would lose a lot of its ter rors if the work could be done by putting the clothes, soao and hot water into a washer and letting the electric motor do the hard work, and then, when the time arrived for wringine the . motor could be again turned on. It could be utilised for Dumping water from the channel into an overhead tank, a pipe from which would lead directly to the kitchen. It could even be made to drive the sewingma chine and save the usual footwork-in fact, it is wonderful in ...

THE NAVEL ORANGE PUZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE NAVEL ORANGE PUZZLE. . " We have a strange aDnoirmality in the navel orange. The stamens produce no pollen; the fruit bears no seeds. Did the secondary orange which results in the navel stop ths pol'.en thread in its way to the ovule and thus cause seedlessness? In this case, why does the tree still fruit? Occasionally other citrus trees exhibit the same behaviour, and a few vegetables are known to fruit without s eding. In these cases absence of pollination doubtless ex plains absence of seeds, Gut why the ex ceptional result of fruiting is yet to me at least a real puzzle."-Dr. A. J. Cookie, State Commissioner of Horticulture, Sac-, ramento, California.

MARKETING v. FEEDING LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

MARKETING v. FEEDING LUCERNE. At a recent debate in Bamawn (Goul burn Valley) on the subject of marketing lucerne v. feeding it to stock, one speaker stated that: "It was well-known that the cow could not reproduce the fat of all the lucerne it could eat. It was therefore wasteful to feed on that fodder only, and the proper and most economical way was to mix the ration, thereby enhancing the value of lu cerne 75 per cent. He would feed in the following proportions: 75 lb. of rough or other fodder and 25 lb. lucerne and for this purpose would grow maize or some other heavy plant for summer, and barley or other cereal for winter A really good crop of maize would yield 50 tons of fod der to the acre, and barley, when grazed, is estimated at about 12 tons; but, as yet in this district that was a very high figure. He would reduce this to two thirds, say 33 tons of maize and 8 tons o'f barley. He would not go into the value of labor, as 'he considered there was not much difference, but th...

A USE FOR HOLLOW LOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

A USE FOR HOLLOW LOGS. Many settlers are destroying numbers of hollow logs which are on their blocks when taken u;p. Mr. C. W. Ziele, of Farm No. 280, has found a very good use to which they can be put: He saws them off in suitable lengths, fits piece's of galvan ised iron in a saw cut at one end, and in serts them in the banks <>f his head ditches, where they admirably fulfil the purpose of sluice-boxes. Owing to the rough nature of the outside of the log, there is little or no leakage, as is the case with ordinary square wooden sluice-boxes. Mr. Ziele reports that he has no fault to find with logs used in this way, particu larly as they cost nothing. He wishes he had more at the same price.

THE COW AS OTHERS SEE HER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE COW AS OTHERS SEE HER. The following extracts 'from comments made regarding little Mrs. Dairy Cow on other schemes make interesting reading just .at present: One of the creamery companies having an exhibit at the National Dairy Show (U.S.A.) has posters extolling the cow thait are too good to be kept from our readers. They tell why the dairy indus try is worth while. Here are a few of the real good ones: "A cyclone took everything a farmer had but has cows and seiparator. He never missed his usual deposit in the bank." "You harvest wheat and corn once a year; you harvest milk twice a day." "A ton of wheat takes 7 dollars worth of fertility from the soil; a ton of butter takes 50 cents worth. The wheat is wdrth 20 dollars and the butter 400 dol lars. Which do you raise?" "A carload of grain is worth 250 dollars. A carload of butter is worth 5000 dollars. Convert your corn into butter and save the freight on nineteen cars." "If you get valuable information on dairying to-day, you ...

THE BACON FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

THE BACON FACTORY. ?W-ork' on tbe Bacon Factory is progress ing" satisfactorily. As far as can be seen, there is nothing to prevent its being open ed within a comparatively short time. It is considered, however, that it would be .injudicious to commence operations until settlers are in a position to guarantee a minimum supply of at least 150 pigs per week, and whether they will be able to do so as soon as the factory is ready to ppen is at present a little doubtful. In formation on the point isv beitig. gathered, and it is hoped that it* will-shortly-be pos sible to give, through these columns, full particulars as to the date of opening. Meantime, however, settlers can help a great deial by /advising the Manager of their probable production of pigs during the next few months.

COTTON GROWING UNDER IRRIGATION. Some Facts About It. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

COTTON GROWING UNDER IRRIGATION. Some Facts About It. During the last few years cotton grow ing under irrigation has made very irapid strides on the Irrigation Areas of the: United States (the favorite and most pro fitable! variety being Egyptian cotton). In the Salt River Valley, Arizona, no less than 4500 acres were harvested last year, and during the present season it' is expected that there will be 12,000 'acres harvested. It is stated in a recent re port concerning the matter that the profit from this crop will be from £14 to £20 per acre, and more if the yield can be in creased. Already the average yield in 'Arizona is far in 'advance of the Egyptian yield-4501b. to the acre-and the quality of a 700b. crop there is quite as good as the Egyptian product. ; So far as the Murrumbidgee Irrigation .Areas are concerned, the question of the economic growth of cotton resolves itself largely into one of cost, and in this re gard the experiments being conducted at Mirrool this season by...

Do We Waste Water? A LIVELY DISCUSSION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

Do We Waste Water ? A LIVELY DISCUSSION. Messrs. McEacharn and Brewster, of the Commissioner's staff, who have recently been to Mildura, were responsible fo<r starting a lively discussion at the Com missioner's last settlers' meeting. The heart to heart talk which ensued was much appreciated by all present, and the hope was expressed by more than one settler that similar discussions at these meetings would become the rul-e rather than the ex ception. The burden of Mr. McEachiern's story was that at the present time settlers on the Yanco Irrigation Areas had a whole lot to be thankful for. Their water sup ply was coming regulafxy every fortnight, but he did not think they really -apprecia ted the boon they had. ~ At Mildura the pumps were endeavouring to suck up a very limited amount of moisture which was being jealously protected by the authorities. Only the expensive crops were being watered. Lucerne was not receiving a drop, and if a man dared to allow the smallest tric...

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SETTLERS. Some months back inquiries were made by the immigration representative of the State in London in regard to the possi bilities of giving a guarantee that em ployment with farmers on the Irrigation Areas would be found for sons of city men in England desirous of coming to Australia, and taking up agricultural pur suits. It was pointed out in reply that a guarantee could not be given at the pre sent stage of the development of the Irri gation Areas. In order to take the mat ter a step further, however, a suggestion was made to the London authorities that they might ascertain whether lads of the class referred to would desire any pay ment while they were obtaining experi ence on irrigation farms, and to this a reply has been received to the effect that, owing to the outbreak of the war the pro posed advertising campaign would not be entered upon at present, but there is suf ficient evidence to show that there would be a considerable number of bona-fide appli...
