If nidation IRecotb, Published Fortnightly under tlie authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. Purifying Water. IMPURE water lurks on disease. Settlers are fortunate in having good water con stantly available, but even this is not im mune from the insidious influences Cf bacterial agencies. The Commissioner, recognising what pure water means both to human life and .stock, has ordered that a few suggestions should be put forward relating to the most economical and effec tive means of purifying water. The scientists have been working on this prob lem, and a highly valuable treatise on the question, written by Professor Rothera, of the Melbourne University, its now be fore us. « # * * The professo!? points out that much of the water available for domestic use is often rain water, stored in open tanks, with puddled clay embankments and floors.

Bush Fires. (I.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

Bush Fires. By ARBOREOUS. (I.) GRASS, generally speaking, is so abundant tliis year on and around tlie Yanco Settle ment Area that when hot, dry weather suc ceeds the cool, showery, and changeable conditions of the first month bush fires of a more or less damaging nature to grass: and possibly to property-may be ex pected. Such visitations may occur from a variety of causes. Little acts of careless ness. or forgetfulness on the part of smokers in the fields or bush; want of judgment in selecting a safe spot for the outdoor workman's luncheon fire; the downward stroke of the lightning Hash of the dry thunderstorm; broken glass may also happen to be so placed as to focus the sun's rays on a hot day, to the point of igniting the dry grass underneath and around. But the most vexatious cause of fires to the loser of grass or property is that which is frequently caused by irre sponsible and thoughtless picnic parties. . /V;:' * # * A lurking danger attendant on the out door tea-billy fire...

Highly Coloured Canned Goods. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

Highly Coloured Canned Goods. Many housekeepers write in to this department, says the American Agri culturist9 inquiring how they can put up cherries so that they will re.tain their ruddy red colour, also how to can peas so that they will' be as., green as when freshly picked, or more so. They write tlijgut is possible to buy these in the mar ket1, and wish to know the process so that they may obtain the same results at home. The fact is that this is accom plished by aniline dyes. To be sure,, the pure food law now r.equires that the contents- of the can. be printed. 011 the label, but the chemicals us.ed are gener ally printed in very fine type, and too few housekeepers spend th;e time to read ' all of the text. The red Maraschino cherries which are so decorative for des serts and salads ordinarily are yellow California cherries, but a yellow com plexion is not proper for a Maraschino, and so it is bleached white, then em balmed, and hardened with drugs and finally artificially col...

How the Dethridge Meter Operates. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

How the Dethridge Meter Operates. The Engineer for Water Distribution (Mr. Leppien) furnishes the table here under to enable the irrigation farmer to ascertain the rate at which he is receiving' water from the channel. The farmer can then estimate the capacity of his head ditches, which, in the majority ,of cases, are too small fo: the econrmical working of the farm. For 50-acre farms head ditches of 4 cubic feet per second capac ity, and 2 cubic feet per second for 10 acre farms, are necessary when flooding is practised. For intermediate sized farms the capacity should be proportional to those mentioned above. Any further in formation can be obtained at the office of the Engineer at Leeton.

The Bacon Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

The Bacon Factorv. For tlie information uf <the settlement generally, the Manager states that there has been a change of policy in connection with the establishment of the proposed; bacon factory. The original scheme was for a building to be erected in the vicinity-'of the butter factory, for use as killing yards and a curing factory. The whole question of the 'establishment of abattoirs for the convenience of the area generally has, however, been gone into, and after full consideration it has- *bpen, decided not to separate the bacon curing factory from the general abattoirs scheme, which is urgently needed owing to the unsatisfac tory condition of the present slaughter Irrigation Water being' taken from the lateral throug'h the Dethridg'e Meter for distribution over the land. ing arrangements.

Irrigation Farmer's Experience. -The Barrier Daily Truth, Broken Hill, recently published some statements (made by others) concerning' the conditions and prospects of settlers on the Murrumbidges Irrigation Areas which were not of a flattering nature. Mr. Robert Lang, of Broken Hill, clipped the paragraph from the paper and forwarded it to an ex Barrierite now settled on one of the blocks for his opinion, and received a reply which The Barrier Daily Truth pub lished as follows: "Farm 161, Leeton, 19/9/'13. "Dear Robert,-Your last to hand. Am glad to see by it you are still living, which you ought to be thankful for, considering the dust and smoke you have to swallow in that renowned town of Broken Hill.

Peas and Beans. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

Peas and Beans. t With irrigation, peas and beans can be grown on these areas almost at any season of the year. These can-be planted among the trees in the orchard, thus using the vacant spaces in raising pro ducts of market value, and improving the soil at the same time. Leguminous, plants, such as peas, beans, lucerne, clover, etc., have the wonderful power of taking in the, atmospheric nitrogen by means of bacteria, formed in nodules on the roots of the plant. Hence peas and beans have a direct and indirect value to the grower. , jfr . .y.. ., WWW Fresh peas grown for the November and December Sydney market realise from 3s. 6d. to 8s. per bushel; for the March, April, May and June Sydney market they bring from 5s. to 8s. per < bushel. Fresh beans for late Sydney market (June) realise up to 7s. 6d. per bushel.

The Irrigation Areas. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

The Irrigation Areas. Note's by an Ex-Student, Hawkesbury Agricultural College. DURING last month the Yanco Irrigation areas were visited by a large number of students from Hawkesbury Agricultural College. A few ex-students have already secured farms at Mirrool> The authorities at the College, and students, are . evidently taking much interest in the Murrumbidgee irrigation lands, and it is quite probable that desirable settlers will be drawn from time to time from among' the College stu dents. At* Mm ' TP W W The impressions of Mr. A. V. Donnan, an ex-student at Hawkesbury College (as published in the II.A. College Journal) concerning the Yanco Irrigation Settle- , ment, are worth noting, especially as Mr. Donnan was for some time experimentalist at the Yanco Experiment Farm.: SOIL. Most of the soil on the area can be classed as a stiff red clay loam. In places it is more sandy arid easier to work, but ' the stiff type predominates.
