Starting as an Irrigation Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Starting as an Irrigation Farmer. In issue No. 20 of 1st December last of the Irrigation 'Record, figures were given as to the estimated expenditure and re ceipts of a settler on a 50-acre block who intends to eventually take up fruit grow ing as his permanent source of revenue, and who elects, in the meantime, to fol low dairying as a "pot-boiler" until his trees come into bearing sufficiently to justify the whole of his time; being de voted to them. #.y. 4^ * w Figures are now submitted hereunder showing in a similar manner the approxi mate expenses and profits should fat lamb raising be adopted as a "pot-boiler" and . not dairying. This proposition for tiding the settler with small capital over his initial struggles has sound points to re commend it. The returns are certain, comparatively little labour is required, and thus more time is left for develop mental work at a period when it is re quired the most. By co-operation con siderable profit may result in purchases and sales, a...

Supply of Pamphlets by Department of Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Supply of Pamphlets by Depart ment of Agriculture. The attention of settlers is directed to the fact that about .200 copies were recejntly received of a catalogue printed by the Department of Agriculture, of publications that may be obtained from that Department on application. Among these publications there are a large num ber which would be very useful to set tlers generally on the Irrigation Area, and as copies of the catalogue can be ob tained on application at the Manager's Office, there is no reason why any settler so desiring should not avail himself of the opportunity thus afforded of obtains ing information which, no doubt, would be of great assistance to him in the proper working of his farm.

Yanco Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Yanco Tobacco. \ Mr. A. Gornitzka writes:-"The 'Ibis' brand of pure Australian tobacco has now been put on the market, and it is to be hoped that the settlers on the area will give this industry their very best support by smoking this brand and re commending it wherever they go. #4L 4L "As the advertisement indicates, if you don't care for it just as it is, mix with your usual brand a little more and more of it every week until you are used to it, and you will never smoke any other to bacco. It is the healthiest tobacco you can smoke, because it is pure and un adulterated, it is unusually cool to smoke, cannot injure your throat, and does not burn the tongue. It is good, and it is 'Yanco' grown and manufactured; that should be all you wish for, so buy it, smoke it, and 'push it.' By doing so you advertise Yanco product and help yourself, the area and the country. #4u Jf. W IP "Every storekeeper and tobacconist in Leeton, Yanco, Narrandera, etc., has it. The price is reasonable, name...

Leeton Race Club. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Leeton Race Club. The Leeton Race Club held its Anniver sary Meeting on January 26th. The morning indicated rain, but only a light shower or two resulted, the afternoon being fine. The attendance was good and the day's sport was thoroughly en joyed. The club, so far as buildings and equipment are concerned, can be said to be only in its embryo (stage. The con tour of the surrounding lands provide for an ideal natural situation for viewing the racing. The gently sloping ground which rises on the west and north gives an un surpassed coign of vantage for a race course. The club intends to erect the necessary buildings on these slopes later on. Then, with avenues of trees giving shade to the environment, Leeton should have a racecourse equal to any provincial course in Australia. The following were the results: TRIAL STAKES, of £10-6 Fur. Tharp, 8st. 01b. 1 Tarwong, 8st. 41b .. 2 Aphros, 7st. 131b .. 3 YANCO WELTER, of £15-7 Fur. Just, lOst. 21b... ..- .. 1 Dream Lass, 7st. 71b.. T .. ....

Girdling of Orange Trees [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 February 1914

Girdling of Orange Trees I HAD the pleasure of briefly inspecting at Renmark portion of Mr. Rose's splen did Fairview property (says a writer in the Murray Pioneer). I was anxious to see how the orange trees, to which the twitch had been applied, and of which I wrote the other week, were looking. It was gratifying to find that they were, for the most part, in admirable condi tion. The wire twitches are still on the trunks, and the marks left by last year's wires are still plainly discernible. But it is not apparent that the girdling of the trees has in any way affected their vitality. # * # Indeed, the four acres of trees which last year produced Renmark's record crop of Washington Navels, and which but two or three years ago-before the land was drained-were yellowing off badly, are now in the very pink of condition. They are large, well-grown trees, and their glossy and dark-hued foliage be speaks a state of perfect health and vitality. It is possible that they might be matched in ...

Grading at Mirrool. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 February 1914

Grading at Mirrool. When at Mirrool recently the Manager made a promise that a Grading Demon stration would be given at Mirrool in the near future, the idea being to in struct settlers how they could carry out this work for themselves. In connec tion with this matter Mr. McEachern is paying a visit to Victoria next week, and while there will make a thorough in vestigation and obtain the most up-to date irhplements for use. It is hoped that arrangements will be made for the Grading Demonstration to be given in Mirrool at an early date. While in Vic toria, Mr. McEachern is also going fully into the question of vegetable growing under irrigation. This is a matter of great moment to the Murrumbidgee Irri gation Settlement at the present time, in view of the proposed establishment of a cannery at Leeton.

General Notes. THE FORTHCOMING EASTER SHOW. IT will be of interest to settlers generally to learn that the Commissioner has made arrangements this year for a space to be available for the Yanco exhibit twice !! as large ais that set apart for the pur pose at the Royal Agricultural Society's Show last year. The last exhibit was the subject of much favourable comment, but an effort is being made this year to make the ex hibit infinitely better. Various models are being prepared, including one of a | typical irrigation farm. Sydney people I will be able to see the actual irrigation of a block in progress on a small scale. Mr. McEachern iis obtaining exhibits of the various classes of products all over the settlement and is making fair pro gress. In this regard, however, settlers can themselves do a great deal. There are, no doubt, many men on the area with splendid crops of one kind or an other who may not come in touch with Mr. McEachern until it is too late for him to secure samples....
