Among the Settlers. III. Alti-IOUGI-i settlers have been operating on:^. their 'holding's under a year, on an average, there are many cases where dis tinctive progress has been made. The .initial difficulties of clearing, breaking up the new land, grading, ditching, etc., have been met with creditable energy by a number of farmers. The work of these settlers is advantageous to the irrigation community. "It should be an incentive to others who are endeavouring to grasp the necessities of a system of agriculture, iDerhaps -entirely 'new to them. It is the intention to'note jtHe -progress of settlers from Hime to Hinie \:fin the Irrigation Record.

Among the Settlers. IV. P. H. LIND. Oil the east side of the Yaneo area along the main canal are a number of settlers who acquired farms from the late Trust under permissive occupancy, and have, in consequence, been on their land a little over a year., We called at farm 45, held by Mr. P.

He had some experience as an orange grower, being foreman for the owner of an orange grove for several years. This year He is sowing 43 acres of hay and seven acres of lucerne. Later on he may take on dairying. He is yet mindfur of the economic advantages of a few acres of fruit trees, and intends to go in for an orchard. Mr. Neilsen, a neighbour of Mr. Lind's, and also an American settler, was not at home on the occasion of our visit, and an interview with him is deferred for another occasion. Mr. Lind has built himself a house, and is working stead...

The Duty of Water. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 June 1913

The Dtity of Water. MR. F. H. BREWSTER designing' en gineer to the New South Wales Irrigation Commissioner, writes in reference to some investigations made by the United. States Department of Agriculture and the Idaho State Board of Land Commissioners re garding the securing of exact data as to the amount of water to be allotted for various irrigation projects in Idaho, Ex tracts have been taken from Engineering Record of 15tli March, by Mr. Brewster, as follow: * * * The annual rainfall, its -seasonal distri bution, the temperature, humidity, and wind movement, all have a very marked effect upon the amount of water required for crop production. * * * It has been shown that a light summer rainfall has but little influence on the :. duty of water. Heavy rains of 0.5in. or more at a time seem to be beneficial, but the atmosphere during the summer is so warm that lighter rain than this seems to do more harm than good, for it not only evaporates before it .lias time to penetrate into th...

Irrigation Practice. I. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 June 1913

Irrigation Practice. \ I. ALTHOUGH irrigation was-, practised by the ancients and certain methods regard ing it handed down to lis to the present day, it is not yet perfectly understood even by the most experienced. The chief of the division of Hydrography (Mr. F. H. Newell), United States, in h-is ad mirable work on the subject, refers to the lack of knowledge in that country in respect to the action of water when ap plied to the soil for the production of crops. There, is great need, Mr. Newell points out, of long^continued systematic study and acquisition of knowledge con cerning the actual effect water has upon the soil and plants. We can see the ultimate result, but have only a vague conception of the steps by which this re sult is produced. 3-Furrow Ploug'h.
