The Mildura Progress Committee. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888
The Mildura Progress Committee Like every other new settlement, Mildura has many public requirements that demand attention. They are not "long-felt wants " as yet, but there is a fair prospect of their becoming so if the settlers fail to combine and act to- gether for their common benefit. With &nbsp; the object of creating an organisation to agitate for the various public con- veniences required, Mr. N. B. McKay &nbsp; convened a public meeting to discuss the question. The meeting was held at ' The Workshop " on the 27th March, and about 40 residents attended. After discussion, it was resolved to form a public committee to work in the in- terests of the settlement, and seven gentlemen were appointed a provisional committee to prepare rules and draft the constitution and bye-laws of the body it was proposed to form. This duty was duly carried out, and a general meeting was held on Tuesday, the 8th inst., in Mr Dundas's workshop, Langtree Avenue, when there was a good...

About Shade Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 19 May 1888
About Shade 'Trees. In California the locust and acacia are regarded as undesirable trees in the vicinity of fruit lots. The acacia, especially, is said to be the natural home for numbers of pests, bark lice and scale bugs. The California black walnut is a qouick grower, makes a good shade and bas no insect parasites. In selecting shade trees--other things being equal a tree that has some economic value apart from its appearance is the best. The olive affords a good shade, has a pleasant colour, and yields a big profit to the owner. The fruit being emphatically unpalatable in its natural state offers no temptation to depredators, and the settler who has a row of these trees round his lot can repose on his virtuous couch without any misgivings about the ravages of the eternal small boy. If a stately tropical effect is wanted, the palm family has strong claims. The date and fan palm Make stately and beautiful trees, and in the hot districts of Australia they thrive well. Wherever. pal...

THE "Mildura Cultivator." SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
THE '"itilbuta utltibator." SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1888. TIlE UNREASONABLE WHY. usr: juryman who held out against an overwhelming majority of his colleagues said that he had never met eleven such unreasonable men in all his life : but the ridicule heaped upon that individual has not pre vented others from following his example. The prosperity of the successful is always- a mystery to those who are society's failures, and he who has conspicuously muddled his own business is ever ready to arrange the affairs of his neighbours. Those who have been wise enough to grapple with the diticulties con nected with being the pioneering settlers of Mildura, expecting the rewards which are likely to follow such an undertaking, must expect to receive the usual discouragements from the less intelligent and less elterprising. It is not surprising therefore that thus early in.the Ihistory of the colony there should be imaginary difficulties suggested by those who have never conquered real ones. An individ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
TO THE EDITOl. SI,--As I amdesirous of both imparting nid receiving informdtion on this subject, and as the cultivatign of fibre-producing plants will no doubt at no very remote period atttact the attention of all agricul turists in Australia, especially those who are settling aft ?Lildura. where we have the all-important water under control, together with favourable soil and climate, I would like to point out that there is a large and constantly-increasing demand for fibres for textile purposes. I refer to such as are used in the manufacture of linen, ropes, twines, &c., and those softer fibres used in the manufacture of paper and paper goods. I may briefly mention that the late ler G. Noble (my father), the introducer of "Esparto," was an enthusiast in the intro duction of fibre-producing plants, so I claim a sort of hereditary right to follow up his ork ; and in doing so I will ask the co operation of anyone who has a knowledge of fibre cultivation. If the matter were dis...
Papermaking Fibres. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
rapermnaiung Fnres. TO THE EDITOR. Sin,-As a visitor to this colonyfrom the old country, I venture to address you on the ideas that have occurred to me whilst walking and driving in the settlement. When at Home I was interested in the making of paper, and, as probably most of your readers are aware, one of the principal ingredients used in making paper for the printing of newspapers, periodical liter ature and common writing paper is a grass which grows in Spain and Algiers. This grass is grown very largely for use in Eng lish paper mills, and I should imagine that it might be grown to great advantage in Mil dura. The following will give your readers and those who know the soil and climate of Mildura some idea as to whether it would ba worth the experiment of cultivating it here. Spanish Esparto is considered the most suitable for papermaking, as it is much stronger and cleaner, and bleaches much better than the African, but whether it is the effect of climate or soil which renders ...
