THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (J. T. D.) The spring show is still in its gl6ry,; al though some of the annuals, notably the stocks, are on the wane. Such plants should, with the exception of those re served for seed^_be...rooted out; it doesn't pay to keep annuals in the garden till they have flowered themselves out to the last flower. , . As soon as they are past their prime they should make way for something else. Seedlings of summer annuals ought to be now ready in the seed-boxes to take the places of the spring bloomers. If plants of these have not yet been raised, there is still time. Sow at once: Celosia, miniature sunflower, gomphrena, zinnia, portulacca, petunia, phlox, nasturtium, dianthus, coleopsis. Those who would have the garden gay in the autumn must make preparation without delay. Two most attractive classes of plants should now be set out in all gardens which aim at a succession of bloom throughout the year. These are the dahlia and chrysanthemum tribes^ The first fortnight in ...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

POULTRY NOTES. By H. J. Braund. Are Your Chickens Thriving?-It is unnatural for a chicken not to thrive. By thriving is meant, of course, that each day your chickens should show distinct improvement in size; that their health should be perfect, their appetites keen, and their appearance generally bright and vigorous. These chicks are called "husky'* chicks. Unless your chicks are of the foregoing order, you cannot pos sibly produce thoroughly healthy mature stock nor make poultry keeping profit able. There are many causes of unthrifty chickens, and one of the commonest is faulty breeding stock. Very old, over fat hens, and also immature pullets are unsuitable for breeders. Mating closely related or defective birds together is also productive of weakly and deformed chic kens. In my experience the strongest and most thrifty chicks are produced from second season hens mated to young vigorous cockerels not less than 10 months nor more than 18 months old. The breed ing stock should be pe...

LUCERNE TAINT AND CHEESE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

LUCERNE TAINT AND CHEESE MAKING. In a recent issue Mr. Alexander ex plained how it was that lucerne improper ly fed tainted the milk owing to the vol atile oils permeating the .whole system of the animal, and how it was that if a rea sonable time were allowed to elapse after feeding lucerne and before milking, these objectionable taints or flavors parsed away, alrnbst if not, entirely. Apparently the Areas' dairymen are not alone in experiencing trouble under this head, as will be seen by the follow ing clipping from a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman," and the assurance given by this authority on dairying mat ters that the objectionable flavor can be overcome if lucerne be rightly fed, will serve to confirm the advice already given as to how it should be fed: ' "It is a well known fact that feeds have more or less to do with the flavor of milk. Rape must not be fed too freely to milk cows or the milk produced by the cows will become tainted. Rank clover pasture may produce an obje...

VEGETABLE GROWING. The Tools to Have. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

VEGETABLE GROWING. The Tools to Have. v The matter of tools is apparently such . a simple one that at first sight it hardly appears worth special reference in the "Record.'' Experience shows, however, that a few remarks on the subject may not be amiss. Many of the tools are so familiar to everyone that a mere enumer ation of them should for most men be sufficient, yet the difference between a good and a bad tool (both being employe ed for the same purpose), is! so great that the choosing of the right implement is of considerable importance. The Spade is one of the most common ly used implements, and it is not too much to say that with one of the mod ern kinds a man can do with the same exertion 10 per cent, more work than he could with the heavy, easily-clogged spades formerly in use. Beside more being performed it is always the case with good tools, that much better work is done. A spade with a solid socket is consid ered quite the best; the blade being bright when new, it can be k...

A SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

A SUGGESTION. "One problem which is confronting cit rus growers is the difficulty of properly distributing irrigation prater to the trees nearest the head flume and furthest from same. In some 100 groves visited this summer during irrigation over 75 per cent, were noted where the trees at the lower end of the-rows were either getting only a small portion of the amount of water given those jit the upper end, or else a very considerable amount of water was being wasted as run-off. In several cases it was estimated that the equivalent of one-half inch of rainfall, for the' acreage being irrigated was lost in this way. The remedy for the above condition which appeals to us as being the most practical and efficient, and which, has been tried by sufficient growers to assure its possibilties, consists of a system of permanent basins filled with mulch around the lower few rows of trees. For 1 his purpose square basins covering near ly the entire ground should be made. The outlines of these ...

THE AIM OF EXPERIMENTAL WORE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

THE AIM OF EXPERIMENTAL WORE. By W. R. Colwell. There are divided opinions on the Areas as to the usefulness of the experi mental plots conducted by the Depart ment of Agriculture. The idea is prevalent that if the de partment's representative supervises the preparation of the land and the sowing of the crop, much more expense must be involved than would be the case under ordinary farming conditions. This is a fallacy. It is granted that greater care is exercised in the preparation of the soil for the reception of the seed, but not one iota more expense is ever involved than the farmer should expend for his own crop. It must be noted that the farm er supplies his own labor, machinery, and horses for all experiments, and a foolish farmer he would be to lay out capital on plant to conduct an experiment, which might prove barren. It is an admitted fact that to ensure a good yield a crop must receive the best of attention throughout. Slovenly pre pared land, which means a bad seed bed, ...

THE ECONOMICS OF ORCHARDING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

THE ECONOMICS OF ORCHARDING. " For the past four years the Division of Horticulture," says a recent American bulletin, " has been conducting investiga tions dealing with the cost of fruit pro duction in the Pacific North-west. The investigations have been conducted on a broad scale, including the States of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and the Province of British Colombia, and have entailed the . study of a thousand orchards." Generally the orchards in these States are largely devoted to apple culture, con sequently a great deal of the detailed in vestigation work does not convey much to the irrigationists of this State who are not largely interested in apple growing and marketing problems. There is, how ever, a lot of useful information in the publication that applies to fruit produc tion everywhere, as the following summary will show :-. The aim of the bulletin is to give aver age costs of production which will serve as an aid to those orchardists attempting to lower their production...

TO DRENCH A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

TO DRENCH A HORSE. To drench a horse, sup a loop over the upper jaw, behind the tusks; back the horse into a corner, throw a line over a beam, and raise the head just sufficient to give a fall on the back of the tongue,. Failing a beam, put the loop over the prong of a fork, or tie it to a broom handle and raise the head as before. . Stand in front of the off shoulder, on a box, if necessary; put the left hand on the tongue and tickle the roof, of the mouth with the fingers; put the neck of the bottle into the mouth just in front of the molar teeth, and let it touch the roof; let a few drops of the drench fall on the tongue, and natural swallowing will fol low. When this starts, give a wineglass full; let it be swallowed; give another, and so on to the end; do not force the drench into the mouth', and, above all, let the head down at once if the horse coughs, and do riot continue to drench.

WENTWORTH.

The supply to settlers on the Mu-rrumbidgee Areas is registered by the Dethridge meter-a contrivance on quite different lines to the Grant Mitchell. An article illustrating the Dethridge meter will be published at an early date, and possibly some information in .regard to the Grant Mitchell meter and it's work ing may appear a little later on.
