An Official Report on Mildura. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

An Official Report on Mildura. About the beginning of April Mr Stuart lurray, Engineer-in-chief of Water Supply for Victoria, paid an official visit to Mtildnra for the purpose of learning whether the terms of the agreement between Messrs. Chaffey Bros. and the Gofernment were being duly observed. His report to the Minister of Water Supply has been made, and the following extract from it will be found to contain a lot of information of the kind sought by those who contemplate oettling here. The report was dated lith April: When the Messrs. Chaffey obtained pos session of the land at bildtsra, set apart as an irrigation colony, a matter demanding their earliest attention was the selection of nlsite for a township, insuch a position that itwonid be conveniently situated for traffic, readily accessible to the public, and adjacent to the lands to be first surveyed by agri ultural settlers. Such a site was found on the land adjacent to the river, about three. qlarters of a mile above the...

STRAWBERRY CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

STRAWBERRY CULTURE. Upon the subject of strawberry culture, Mr E. H. Schacflte writes as follows to the lerral Prcss of California :-elcct a rich, loamy piece of land if you possess it, or, if not so fortunate, the best that you have. See to it that it is free from shade and that it can be thoroughly soaked by irrigation, avoiding land that is wet, cold and boggy. Cover the ground to a depth of Gin. with well - rotted manure and plough or spade it under. If your neighbours grow strawberries, ascertain who has the greatest success and engage your plants from them, as in this way your expense iiisetting out the patch will be less, your percentage of plants that live greater, and the variety is apt to prove that best adapted to your locality. With a garden trowel lift out the runners and as much soil as the trowel will bring with it, placing the plants in a shallow lox, hanlling carefully, that the dirt may not be detached from the roots, exercising due care to get the runners only, as...

PRUNING THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

PIUNxING TIIE ORCHIIAD. BY II. E. JESSEPr, ALAMADJ. CAL. Some fruit magnates agree that if you prune your orchard until it is seven or eight years old that it will need no further pruning. If any mtan thinks of planting an orchardP , adl thinks work of pruning- will be done at that time, my advice to him wouhl be. don't plant, for I have lnever seen an orchard so old. that pruning every year would not do it good; an.l it sloul, Ibe so judiciously pruned every year that it shouldl never be nccc.ssair to remove a big limb. In pruning keep your trees u-well opened up to admit light and air; allow no feeble, unlripe. or useless brushl to remain in your tree to absorb the forces that should be spent in developing and ripening the fruit ; and while pruning. if your orchard is in an exposed position - to a prevailing wind that tlnls to mnake your trees lop-sided, or leaning from the wind, take a limb of suitable size from your prunings, cut off the desired length, .edge-shapedl at each end...

PLANT WIDE APART. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

PLANT WIDE APART. The first serious mistake made by early orcharl-planters in California was too close planting, an error that has rained nearly every old orchnrl in the state. Many of them were planted so close that when the trees arrived at a fair bearing age the tops had interfered, shutting cvery ray of sunlight and obstructing the free current of air-two of the most important requisites of plant growth. without which a frait tree cannot attain a htnlthy. vigorous growth, nor can frunit ripen with its natural flavour with light andl air excluded. The trees want the air and sunlight to give the fruit flavour and colour. The soil wants the air and sunlight that it may absorb the life-giving gasses of the one, and have the vapouris ing influence of ithe other. The old closely planted orchards are now breeding patches for all the noxious insects that are fast spreading over tile state, and threatening the d!cstruction of tile fruit interest. Trees planted close together naturally ac...

Hints to Intending Fruit Growers. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

Hints to hIntending Fruit Growers. BY A. B. SKENE. There is that about the cultivation of fruit trees which attracts most people. Call it what you may, it is a powerfil influence, and many who have never given a scond thought to horticulture Will, upon seeing a pleasant grove or an orchard in hearing, fall beneath its spell and immediately become en thusiasts in the work. The youngnman starting out in the world and the man of capital and refinement are alike caught in its toils, and they make the work of cultivating the vine and fig tree their ideal of earthly lhappiness. Thus we have all sorts and conditions of men at Mildura. Some of then have had a little experience, many have 1ad none, and a few hints from a prac ical frnitgrower may prove us6ful. I am often asked " Will fruitgrowing pay ?" My answer is that it will pay to raise good fruit, but it will certainly not pay to produce poor fruit. To make the industry a success a con siderable amount of forethought is necessary. The ...

GRUMBLERS NOT WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

GRUMBLERS NOT WANTED. Tile people of Mildura don't want any firebrands among them ;—they don't want to be misrepresented to the out- side world. In the great majority of cases the Mildura settlers have put their all into Mildura ; and their success does not depend entirely upon their own individual efforts, but to a great extent upon the prosperity of the settlement as a whole. Therefore, when people who have no interest in the colony come amongst the settlers to sow the seeds of discontent and discord, they ought to be warned off the premises. A noble statue may be spoiled by con- tact with a piece of rusty iron, and although the Mildura enterprise is sound enough to stand the test of honest criticism, however searching, it can't do us any good to be misrepresented. There has been some grumbling, it is true ; but has any community ever existed where there were not a few dissatisfied spirits ? The early comers have had many inconveniences to put up with, but they have been compen- s...

THE "Mildura Cultivator." SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1888. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1888. OURSELVES. "To see ourselves as others see us" is what the poet prayed for, but we confess to an unpoetic desire in quite another direction. Our aim is to raise others to the height of seeing us as we   see ourselves. Irrigation and its ac- companying industries are such large subjects that in undertaking journalis- tic work in connection with them, the   general view of the uninitiated is felt to be unsatisfaetory. When Mr. DEAKIN, the Victorian Minister of Water Supply, was humorously alleged to require four hours in which to deal with irrigation, he replied that "so   "short a time would not sufflice to "approach the fringes of that great "question." In fact, it is those only who have seen the effects of irrigation that can appreciate its advantages, and none but those who have been brought face to face with the marvellous development of vine and fruit growing in Calfornia can grasp the magnificent possibilities of su...

Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888

Our Melbourne Letter. " Where is the fruit and where are the canning factories we were to have had?" This question was asked by one of the !eaders of the Opposition some months ago. He seemed to think that fruit trees came to maturity as quickly as cabbages : but the people of Melbourne without sharing their views are anxious that Mildura should hurry up. Fruit is always dear in the city, although it is frequently cheap enough in the country, and we hope that when your trees begin to bear you will be able to let us have as much as we want at a fair price. The Vegetable Products Commis- sioner is reporting to the Goverinment about its large quantities of preserved and fresh fruit imported into Victoria and the other Australian colonies. This is a great matter no doult, but it does not touch the question of the Mel- bourne supply. It would be many years before our own fresh fruit supply could be met if the price were brougl;t down to a reasonable rate. Fruit is now a luxury enjoyed lb...
