IRRIGATION PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

IRRIGATION PRACTICE. To secure a proper amount of water in the subsoil, so that plants can use it by capillary action, should be aimed at by the irrigation farmer. The sub soil is the reservoir. A few light show ers of rain on a grain crop is not much ise. When there is moisture in the second or third feet of soil, a small irrigation puts the'soil in splendid con dition. The flooding system .of irrigation is tile only practical one for such crops as lucerne and grain crops, which, it may be said, cover the "whole of the ground. Orchards, vineyards, vegetables, or any crops planted in rows are irrigated by means of furrows. The application of the water in this manner may not be found so difficult as that of flooding, but there are many features in irriga ting by furrows which require care and close attention on the part of the irri gator to secure tli/ best results, or. in fact, to obviate doing positive harm to fruit trees or other crops coming j within the operation. Many experimen...

"My Boots." NOTHING AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

"My Boots." NOTHING AUSTRALIAN. A city retailer told a good story on Monday during the course' of his evidence before the Inter-State Com mission, illustrative of the pre judice which some Australian people display against locally made boots. He related ihat a well-known so ciety lady, the wife of a prominent citizen who has repeatedly made eloqueut after-dinner speeches in favor of Australian made articles, had taken such a fancy to a special kind of boot that she purchased a second pair, and a few months later j wanted a third pair, speakiug of! them familiarly as "my boots.'1 j It happened that the shopkeeper \ had none in stock, but the customer I was told that they would be avail I able in about a fortnight. At the j end of that interval the lady called, j again, but the ma.uifacturer had I uot supplied the order. The sales- ! woman said she would ring up the factory, and find out when the boots might be expected to reach the shop. "What! Are they .lo cally marie boots ? the la...

Irrigated Grass Mixtures. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 January 1914

Irrigated Grass Mixtures. In all the irrigation districts exact Information is required regarding crops other than lucerne, and par ticularly root crops, grasses, and ruaize. Potatoes and onions have not been the success the qua lity of the land would lead the irrigationist to expect. Fre quently the explanation is that the watering has not been suitable, or, possibly, the variety has not been adapted for irrigation. AtWyuna eight different varieties, selected as being suited, are being tried. Simi larly trials are being made with eight kinds of maize, both grain and forage types, and with sorghum and millets. Mangels are being grown, aud last year small plots were sown to grass mixtures, in cluding rye, cow grass, beerseem aud other clovers. These latter have been so successful that 15 acres of graded land were this year sown to mixtures. A herd of 3D milkers was recently grazed ou it for eight days, and early in December the area was ready for a second grazing, which is expected t...

Items of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 January 1914

Items of Interest. The largest black fish ever lauded in the_Yarram district was on view there last week. It was caught by Mr W. Ilobson iu Yarra Creek. It weighed 41b 6oz. The fish was sent to Mr Tadgell, of the Mel-' bourue" Auglers' Club, to be set up. While some grass laud was being ploughed up at Mount Mercer, near Bdlarat, a few days ago a gold ring was turned over in a sod of clay. The ring contained a line sapphire, 'and showed scarcely any discoloration. It had lain in the ground about thirty years. It belonged to the late Mr Robert Bell, who was owner of the estate for many years. Mr Be'.l met his death in a tragic manner, being struck by lightning just as lie was about to enter bis home.

Irrigation Settlements. QUESTION OF PERMANENCY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 January 1914

Irrigation Settlements. QUESTION OF PERMANENCY Concluding an interesting series of articles on th»s subject "Yarrau" in the Weekly Times" remarks: In conclusion, one might reason ably ask (1) Are the 1200 settlers already established going to make good? (2). Are the different set tlements permanent? 3. What in fluence are the settlers going to i have on the State? It is certain that a substantial percentage of the irrigat-ionists must make moneyout of the business if they maintain their present enthusiasm aud indus try. They have already success fully negotiated the most trying period- in the development of their farms, and are making cases which will stand out in striking contrast with their, surroundings. Possibly numbers of them will sell theirhold- j ings wheu it is competent for them to do so, and will embark their in creased capital in bigger areas. If their places are taken by others, as they must be, the irrigation move ment will not suffer: it will have been a. useful stepp...

Spineless Cactus Trial. CLOSE WATCH NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 January 1914

Spineless Cactus Trial. CLOSE WATCH NEEDED. An announcement by a new American settler that be intends' to plant ou his iirigatiou allotment near Rochester some spineless cac tus imported from the United States has been received with " mixed feelings. It is likely that the growth,of the plant will be officially watched, lest it should be allowed to revert to its wild state and be come a noxious weed. Mr Elwood Mead, chairman of the Water Commission, stated that he could quite understand people being anxious, after experience tint Australia has had with plants which were at first supposed to be useless and which were probably useful when employed to a limitrd extent. He knew nothing of the proposal beyond the intimation he had seen in'the press. The spineless cactus was a fodder plant, but it would be a question whether the particular variety brought here was really spioeless. Some of the fodder plants had "whiskers." The dan ger was of course, reversion,to the wild state, wheu it mig...
