CORRESPONDENCE. WATER SUPPLY. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 March 1877
- ujJKKESPOJS-^xNCE. r , ? :_ ? ^ ' WATER SUPPLY. '' (TO THE EDITOB.) ' Sie,— Now that the enlargement of the Eeservoir is nearly completed it is high .time- pur hospitable people considered what'Steps should be taken to prevent it being damaged and the water polluted by the encroachment of stock. Then arises the question what would they do for water when, as is the case now, none was obtainable outside ? To the latter I reply that, whatever the consequence, it is absolutely necessary,, in the interest ofc the,; general health and the proper x , con'serVation of the work, that they be kepjb .outside of the Eesevoir enclosure. It. is i vested in trustees, then let them fulfil their trust and see that it is properly protected, and if they have not sufficient powers, let us ask the government to ? strengthen their hands. The suggestion that a pump be erected, so that water carts can get their water without going inside, is a good one and should be im me^iiaftely acted upon; and I shoul...

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 March 1877
COMMERCIAL. v- \ Herald' Office, Monday; During the past ?week the -weather has con tinued changeable and: unfavourable for pastoral pursuits. Occasional showers have fallen, but of such . -an erratic and unequal nature that little benefit has accrued from : tnein, unless to those who were situated; 'within the ' immediate vicinity of the fall. ?* On Monday last the rain in some, parts of the. district, and particularly a short distance out of town, was very heavy, actually flood ing many of the' smaller creeks and filling several of the neighbouring dams ; whilst about three miles away the fall was little more than enough to lay: the dust. Several frosts have recently been experienced at night, and it is feared that grass at this late season will have little chance of springing, ? even should a general and heavy rain at once.come. ' To give a description of . the state of the district and live stock would only be a re capitulation.of the many, and too familiar, accounts already fur...
FOREST CONSERVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 March 1877
FOREST CONSERVATION; ?/ ? ( Illustrated Sydney NeiO8.j It is much to be regretted that so- little thought is bestowed in tne colonies upon the question of forest conservation, par ticularly as we have the experience of older countries to guide us, and cannot pretend to be entirely ignorant of the fact that serious and undoubted evils do ctuu juusi rtJHiuii arum tjie great ciestruc tion of forests. which is now permitted to xDroceed without check.

NO ROOTS ON HEAVY LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 March 1877
NO. ROOTS ON HEAVY LAND. The following. practical article we clip from some useful experiences contributed by an English Farmer to the Illustrated Sydney Neios : — . , . I was very much astonished'by Mr. Sewell Bead's advice, that wo should give up grow ing roots on heavy land for a long fallow. Why, I really consider it;as the key of the position. With dee]) cultivation and -^plonty of manure 1 can and do grow forty tons of mange! per acre, which Mr. Lawes valued as manure, after consumption1 by live . stock,. at 5/-. per ton, or £10 per acre, and this, too, when the comparison was made with guano at about £10 per' ton; No crop is so certain in our cereal districts, in a hot dry siunmer, us mangel. Wo also grow fine cabbage, and kohl .rabi. I never grow Sweeds, which aro unsuited to our stiff,' stubborn, crackling clays and dry cereal climate. Ro meinber, too, that Mr. Lawes took no account in his estimate of the manurial value of the ? tops. But although we cannot grow Sweeds ?, w...
