TOMATO-GROWING. THE editor of the Irrigation Record re cently visited Bendigo, Victoria, and in spected the operations of the Spanish vegetable growers; there, to note-methods of producing tomatoes, cabbages, cauli flowers, etc., . under irrigation. As it was considered desirable to interview the manufacturers of tomato- sauce, they being the arbiters of the quality of toma toes -for sauce-making, as governed by the public taste and demand, a visit was paid to the works of the well-known firm of Leggo and Company, Bendigo. # * # Mr. H.

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Correspondence. Mr. J. Gartlan (Farm 110) gives a note of warning:-'i Every settler should be impressed with the immedi ate necessity of clearing his land, and his side of the channel banks, of the Scotch thistle, burrs, docks, etc. The Scotch'thistle is now in flower, and can be easily got rid of just now, but if not destroyed before the seed ripens-which it does quickly-it will blow all over the place, and in two years' time such a pest will be a menace to every settler in the area. I would strongly urge the manager to appoint an inspector with power to prosecute any farmer who will not clear his holding of the pest within three days after being notified to do so by the Inspector.''

Laying Out the Land for Irrigation. W. FRANCIS AIIERN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Laying Out the Land - for Irrigation. FRANCIS AIIERN. IF I had my way about doing things I .would have the land on each side of every supply ditch slope down gently for at least 150 feet and 011 that slope I would plant peas, beans, corn, etc., and raise a goocl profitable crop without any or with very -litttle furrow or surface irriga tion. The seepage water would answer the purpose of sub-irrigation, or infil tration, as will be seen. This water aided by deep cultivation and pulveriza tion of the soil would be sufficient to ..toT^tifv "my most ardent hopes. # x # At the bottom of each slope would be established an open ditch or covered drainage system, and the surplus water caught and utilized for surface or fur row irrigation on the plat below. The land on th.e ditch slope would be ploughed and cultivated parallel with the ditch line and at right angles to it on the plat below the slope. * # . # This system of laying out the land is equivalent to terracing but more . con venient ...

Advisory Board. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Advisory Board. A MEETING of the Advisory Board was held on October 14tli. In the absence of the Manager, Mr. Leppien took the chair. DRY AREAS FOR ~2-ACRE BLOCKS. Mr. Graham considered that the holders of 2-acre irrigation farms ishould be per mitted to acquire a dry area adjacent to the main canal, and thus secure a living area. Were they allowed the proportion similar to that proposed for the 50-acre men they would each have 6 acres of a dry area, in addition to their 2 acres of irrigable land. They could erect a pump, take water from the canal, and grow fruit or vegetables in sufficient quantity to enable them to make a living. He realised that the 2-acre blocks were designed to meet the requirements of the working men, but they did not intend to be all the time working for others. The allot ting of the dry areas iii the manner in dicated would only aggregate 120 acreis if all the 2-acre men took 6 acres each, and this would not make much difference to the holders of the larger ...

Yanco Golf Club. Mr. H E. Steane, Hon.

A sweepstake was played on Saturday, 11th October. The players were handicapped by distance, No 1 green being used. There was some splendid play in the contest which con sisted of three series of three balls each, Melville (70 yds.) securing the prize for one round, and Bell (70 yds ) that for the-other ; Steane (100 yds ) b."ing the runner up in both cases. xl# w ^ 7?

Mildura and Co-Operation THE PRESENT SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Mildura and Co-Operation THE PRESENT SITUATION. By STEELE BLAYDE. AT the close of my last article oil Mil dura co-operation, I asked what is the situation if distribution of profits is to be demanded by a co-operative company before that company has a sound and safe working and expansion balance? Let us see! ? # # It must at once be realised that it costs more to run a co-operative concern than it does to run a private concern, either at Mildura or elsewhere. In the first place, to meet such an item of expense as the payment of some £8 10s. per week to the directorate, not including regular staff, £9 per week have to be made before the Mildura company is on a working level with rival private companies. And what can the Co-operative Co. show per contra ? As a matter of fact, the rival company can buy as cheaply and run its business more cheaply in some ways than the Co-operative Co.-not even reckon . ing in . he directorate's £8 10s.; for* the rival companies can find labor in slack ...

Important Notice re Burning-off. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Important Notice Burning-off. The attention of settlers generally is drawn to the necessity of exercising the greatest possible care in burning off. The local Government regulations provide that on and after the 1st October in each year notice must be given to all neigh bours of the intention to burn off, and in connection with the Irrigation Areas it has been decided to follow the same course of procedure. It is absolutely essential that in addition to notifying the surrounding settlers the .Manager should also be duly advised at leas three clear days beforehand, and, in the event of the fire-fighters being called out as a result of any settler not giving the Manager due warning when about to burn off. the cost incurred in sending out the men will be charged against the offending settler. . Picnic and other parties are specially warned against leaving live embers, and are requested to carefully extinguish any fires before leaving their camping ground. This particularly applies to t...

Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. MR. ROBERT GIBSON, candidate for the Murray at the ensuing State elections, was singularly unfortunate in his specific instance when he subjected the Murrum bidgee Irrigation Areas to a silly and unpatriotic criticism. The settlers who had been allured here from Broken Hill had, according to Mr. Gibson, "star vation staring them in the face.7' It is understood that Mr. Gibson has "backed downbut the point is whether all those who saw his unwarranted asper sions have seen his k< back down." Mr. Gibson and others of the ilk who aspire to statesmanship should realise that the State has assumed a great moral and financial responsibility in providing these great tracts of rich soil with water and settlers; and any man who endeavours to convey a wrong impression t...

Tomato Pulp. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Tomato Pulp. SETTLERS are inquiring'' about making' tomato pulp. This indicates that certain areas of tomatoes will be planted on the Yanco and Mirrool sections" this season.

The work can then be mapped out in the different sections of the Area, and carried out before the teams are removed from that particular locality. This will obviate the teams being sent backwards and for wards to do work that could be attended to while they were adjacent thereto, thus saving the settler expense.

The Mirrool Irrigation Area. (From Our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

The Mirrool Irrigation Area. (From Our Correspondent.) AT the last monthly general meeting of the Mirrool settlers, a long discussion took place anent railway communication. W TP The eleven miles of bad road to. Wil briggie is found a serious handicap, and causes a feeling of uneasiness and dis may among settlers when they reflect on the prospect of some considerable delay in Mirrool getting the necessary railway connection. The long drag by teams with household effects first, and, later, with goods, machinery, and materials ne cessary to the development of the hold ing, is bad enough; not to mention -the vexatious waste of time. To be obliged to haul back along the same road produce, much of it morei or less perishable, and almost all of it . heavy and bulky, is more than we bargained for. jjfs ifc * The need of some definite railway scheme covering the whole projected ir-. rigation crea has long been felt here; particularly in view of the fact that, from time to time, the support ...

"POILITE" Asbestos Building Sheets (Genuine British Made) One of the chief features about "POILITE" lies in the fact that it is ANT-PROOF. For this ; reason alone you should consider the wisdom of Building with "POILITE" Sheets. But there are other reasons, perhaps, equally as important. We mention a few :-" POILITE " Sheets are fire proof, therefore take the lowest rate of insurance. They are heat-proof, climate-proof, are easily put up, and will not warp. Cost no more than weatherboard. "POILITE " Tiles make very attractive roofs, and are most economical. Our Catalog "I" gives all particulars. Write for a free copy. NO YES BROS (SYDNEY) LTD.

Lessons in Co-operation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Lessons in Co-operation. THE one thing that characterises the fruit situation in western New York is anxiety, if not to say alarm. From Erie and Nia gara counties to Oswego county inclusive (a strip 150 miles long and 10 or more wide) hundreds of square miles of or chards are already in bearing and hun dreds more will be producing in the near future. Trees by the million have been planted and still there seems no limit to planting. For several years the New York Central Railway has signally failed to handle the output, and especially last year growers lost enormous sums of money through transportation negli gences. Cold and common storage facili ties all through the region have been taxed to their limit, and immense quan tities of fruit have been lost through freezing, rotting, etc., because they could not be placed in store. Labour has been almost impossible to get at even exorbi tant pricey. # * # Compared with these problems which now confront growers the problems of production -...
