FHRM ANB GHROEN. || [Conducted by the Rambler.] JL_ RANDOM JOTTINGS. 4NTERPLANTING. I have added a footnote to my. friend Mr Ross's letter on this subject,'but after that was in type (proofed and revised for printing) the " Mildura Cultivator" of las! Saturday came along. And one of the first things that caught my eye in " Steele 'Blayde's " pages was a very pertinent reference to this matter of the interplanting of fruit trees. Mr Ross writes that he finds the practice of interplanting /mutually advantageous to orange and peach trees. The hardy warrior of the " Cultivator" has been visiting Curlwaa, at.d, of course, had a stroll through Mr Sage's block. And in fhe course of his stroll noted that where the orange and peach plantations mc-t, the peach trees in the dividing row were as they should be, but the orange trees. in the first row next them were "-by no means so fine in growth and bearing as the next "row." Mr Sage, who ii repre sented as a philosopher cf the Laconic school—o...
RAILWAY PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 28 November 1913
RAILWAY PROPOSALS. The proposal to advocate a rail way from Morgan to Renmark, in place of the bridge connection with Paringa, has not received much public support in Renmark itself. The resolutions carried on Wed nesday week at a meeting of the Berri Progress Association, which will be found reported in our news columns, indicate, however, that the Morgan extension has powerful advocates. And if the issue were narrowed to a choice between these two alternatives there can be no question as to which should kick the beam. The line from Morgan would be one of development, and would bring' Renmark at least as near, and probably nearer, the metropolis than the Paringa route. It is only natural that Renmark settlers should desire effective con nection with the railway already so near their doors. Whether the ulti mate course of development is likely to warrant the spending of any great sum to effect that connection is another question. And especial ly is it important to consider whether t...

But there is another plot of French Provence, | and in this plot the ..growth is very patchy. The patchiness is ascribed "to the nature of the soil in this particular plot, clay emerging on the surface in. places.

iimeer. Visitors to the City May obtain copies of the " Murray Pioneer" at the Railway Bookstall, Adelaide. Rbn&ark, Friday, November. 28. THE DRIED FRUITS IN DUSTRY. Though the attendance of growers at the meeting of the Dried " Fruits Association on Monday night might have been larger, there ■was no lack of interest in the affairs of the Association shown by the considerable number who were present. Nor do we think any 3 fault could be found -with the tem per of the meeting or the spirit of 3 the resolutions carried. It was made abundantly clear that Ren mark growers have no desire to wring extortionate prices from the public for their fruit; that, on 3 the contrary, they are, as a body, desirous that prices^ generally - should be lowered. And they are anxious^ that any reduction in prices which tnay be made should reach the consumer. But that, as 1 yet, is where the rub comes in. Growers by their organization are * able to control the agents who e handle their fruit, and,...

GRAPES FOR EXPORT. An esteemed correspondent—a Ben mark settler—writes me for informa tion regarding" the prospects which the railway opens for the export of : the Gordo grape. He is ttiider the ] impression that Gordos are freely exported from Mildura, and that.-this : industry has been developed in that i settlement as a consequence of its l] connection by rail -with Melbourne. There is ho prospect for ths eucccee ful export of the Gor.do, though some thing may be done in wording up a trade of grapes of this Variety when the settlement of the malice lanes along th«i Paringa line provides a population, .for .their cohsurD.pt-cm.
