How Lambs were Destroyed. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

How Lambs were Destroyed. Dr. C, J. Reakes, M.R.C.V.S., tells in the New Zealand Journal of Agricul ture how an owner killed his lambs by injudicious methods of drenching. He says: "A Government veterinary offi cer, who recently visited a farm for the purpose of assisting th.e owner in deter mining' the cause of some mortality which had occurred among lambs, makes the following remarks in his report upon the matter: " 'In conversation with Mr. I learned that he had been drenching the lambs with turpentine and linseed-oil, and that nearly all-possibly all-of the deaths had occurred very shortly after drenching; also that he had used a pew ter syringe to drench with, and believed in doing it quickly, and with force/ "In these days it seems difficult to realise how any man could imagine that to force liquid medicine down the throat through the medium of a syringe is a right and proper way of administering it. It is an excellent way of forcing the liquid into the windpipe and killing th...

Advances to Settlers. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Advances to Settlers. JPOR the information, of settlers, the Com missioner desires it to be notified that the portion of the Savings Bank Amalgama tion Bill which provides for advances to settlers on irrigation farms has passed through both Houses of Parliament, and in anticipation of the Bill receiving the Governor's consent and becoming law, the Commissioner for Water Conservation and Irrigation has asked the Savings Bank Commissioners to give consideration to the question of utilising the services of an officer of the Commissioner's staff at Yanco for the purpose of valuations in connection with advances to be made on irrigation farm leases. The benefit in such an arrangement will be rapidity in dealing with applications, and also the local knowledge of an officer of the Com missioner's staff regarding these matters. Each farm is in a sense an experiment station, and the experiences of the indi vidual farmers are of great importance in formulating wise plans of farming.

POISONOUS POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

POISONOUS POTATOES. Potatoes which have been grown on or very near the surface of the ground, or are subsequently allowed to remain ex posed to daylight for a long period, may develop poisonous qualities. A case is under investigation in which members of a family always felt ill after eating cer tain potatoes. These, on examination, were found to be green under the skin, but this was not evident until they had been peeled. It will be safer for house wives, therefore, to reject as unfit for culinary purposes potatoes showing this peculiarity. They would, of course- be - excellent for seed purposes, other things being equal.-B. C. Aston.

Law of Heredity. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Law of Heredity. PROFESSOR 11. C. PUNNETT, of Cam bridge University, in referring to Men clel's theory regarding the law of here dity in plants and animals, says that the problems to which Mendel found the key have had the attention of Professor Bateson in Cambridge. Poultry was one of the first subjects of experiment by Bateson, and during the past ten years much has been learned of the transmis sion of various characters. Offering as they do a number of features showing sex-linked inheritance, poultry are of importance for gaining an insight into the nature of sex, and of studying the peculiar influence of each sex in the trans mission of hereditary properties. Several of these sex-limited characters are now under investigation at Cambridge, while parallel experiments are being carried on by Professor Bateson at Merton. IT *7P TP Two other series of experiments likely to lead to knowledge of economic value are also being carried on at Cambridge. The first of these is concerned wit...

The Deadly Pea Rifle. "Pro Bono Publico'7 gives his version regarding the pea-rifle: "The careless and ignorant handling of this little weapon has brought deep sor row into many an Australian home, and continues to exact such a toll of youthful human life that recently, at a Fanners7 and Settlers7 Convention, this body of sober-minded men were moved to pass a resolution praying the Government to frame a.

Yanco Golf Club. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Yanco Golf Club. Mr. A. E. Steane writes:-"Owing to the dry conditions and exceptionally long grass 011 the golf links, good golf and a complete round is almost impossible. The most enthusiastic players, however, have been holding approaching and putting competitions. There were good entriies, and keen interest was shown. In the match held on Saturday, 27th September, all competitors played from a new tem porary tee, which had been established for the first green on the far side of the canal, giving an approach shot of about 100 yards. Three series of three balls each were played, Inglis returning the best card, 39 strokes for the 9 ballis; Baxter and Bell tying for second place with 45; Steane and Digby with 46.

Death of Mrs. Tolley. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Death of Mrs. Tolley. " Behind lier Death, Close following pace for pace, not mounted yet On his pale horse." A GREAT shock pervaded the community when it was learned that Mrs. Tolley, wife of Mr. G. H. Tolley, one of the officers of the Commissioner, had been killed by being thrown out of a vehicle. The circumstances surrounding the lady's untimely end caused even a deeper sense of that sadness which usually attends the loss of one who had become endeared through kindly acts to those of her ac quaintance Milton's metaphor, as quoted above, seems singularly appropriate. The late Mrs. Tolley had suffered from heart trouble for some time past. Her health lately improved, and she attended the social at the Yanco Officers' Club, Lee ton, last week. There, amidst the festive throng, she seemed to enjoy the fleeting hours with her many friends. In the sijiall hours of the morning, Mrs Tolley, in company with her husband and Miss Tolley, started for home, about a mile distant., in a vehicl...

Agricultural Work. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Agricultural Work. SETTLERS are continually complaining of the cost of agricultural work done by the Commissioner's teams. For reasons which are well known to all settlers inter ested, the Commissioner's teams cannot perform work at the same cost to the settler as an ordinary private contrac tor^ and the solution seems to be for settlers, wherever possible, to get their work done by private contractors if it can be more cheaply performed in that way. With a view to assisting in this, matter, the Commissioner is prepared to guaran tee payment for work so done as if it were carried out by his own teams; that is to say, individual settlers will be allowed to have £30 worth of work done on terms, the contractor being paid cash and the amount debited to the settlers' terms account. Of course, any work already done by the Commissioner on terms would ' have to be allowed for in reckoning the amount of private contract work which eould be allowed to the settler on terms, and all work would ...

Urdgatton IRecorb* Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leetpij, £T(8,W. AUSTRALIA is the land of the dawning' "the strange scribblings. of Nature learn ing to write" are manifest in its agricul-, tural development. The one great force essential to the well-being of the nation is water. We have hitherto carried on crop production in a more or less - hap hazard fashion. In circumstances where we might have held the water for our use we have neglected to do so. Year after year we have trusted to the ordinary rainfall, and, in consequence, have lost millions of money. Instead of looking at Nature as something to be reconciled to our needs, we have made a fetish of it. Over a large area of Australia the rainfall, in the aggregate, its sufficient for our requirements. The configuration of the country causes heavier precipitation in isome places t...

Demand for Dried Fruits in London. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Demand for Dried Fruits in London. Major Norton, the South Australian Trade Commissioner in London, in a re port, refers to the market for dried fruits in London as follows:-"For some years I have been of opinion that the cause of the low price so often ruling for dried fruit, particularly when there was a full crop in California, was due to the ignor ance of the English public in regard to the method of cooking and uses the fruit might be put to. Accordingly, I decided upon a propaganda, beginning at the Brad ford Grocers' Exhibition. # % # ' "The managing director of a large re tail firm informed me afterwards that in one morning one of his travellers took over forty orders for dried apricots, and during the first week the exhibition was open his firm sold more dried apricots than it had done in a whole year before. Each of the travellers carried round a little pot of jam made from the fruit, which had a convincing effect upon their customers. This was only one shop out of scores ...
