CONQUERING THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 24 December 1915
CONQUERING THE DROUGHT. In the course of a series of articles oil "The Wimmera-Mallee," the Age says :—The Water Commis sion, with its Murray and Lonsdale schemes, is solving the problem of water supply for the Wimmera and the Mallee. The Wiuimera-Mallee system, when its uew southern storages are completed, will reserve 122,000 acre feet. With water as sured and adequate supplies of fod der conserved, the drought which occurs in cycles of 10 or 12 years, will be largely overcome. This year, when the crop is stripped, the straw will be burnt off from the paddocks. The losses of stock dur ing the drought have left few sheep available to feed over the fat acres. The lesson of the drought is likely to be forgotten in the rich years expected to ensue. Alternative schemes are suggested for the con versation of fodder :—That the Government should assist farmers by the storage of stocks during the good years, or that cross-country railway lines should bring the lu cerne areas of the irrigat...

When the history of the progress and potentialities of the Wiuiuiera district comes to be written, Donald must necessarily occupy-an import ant place in the narrative, because of its comparative modernnesss and the progressive nature of its citi zens. The township of Donald is prettily situated on the banks of the placid Richardson River, a tribu tary of the Avon River with the junction at Banyeua, and is ISO miles north-west of Melbourne on the Maryborough-Mildura railway. — Tim Climate — The climate of the Donald district is said to resemble that of Italy, and is certainly one of the most perfect agricultural climates in Victoria ■ though less appreciable than that which prevails in Gippsland, iu the Grampiaus, and along the southern coast near Warrnambool and Port land. In the winter the air is fresh and dracitig, and in the summer months dry and healthy. Even in the hottest months, January and ...
