Electric Supply Area. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914
Electric Supply Area. It may be of interest to settlers and prospective settlers at this stage to know what has already been done in "the direc tion of supplying them with electricity on this Area. A. power-house is erected at Yanco Siding, containing a modern plant consisting of one 150 horse-power boiler and one 100 horse-power generat ing set. A duplicate boiler set is ex pected to arrive in a few weeks, as well as a 72 horse-power generating set to act as a stand-by plant for the present 100 horse-power set, in case of a breakdown. At present a small gas engine set is fitted to a small generator ready to carry on the farm supply in case any trouble happens before the relief sets arrive. The present indications of demand for electricity require that another set of much larger capacity shall be installed, possibly be(fore the end of the year. Wood fuel has so far been used, but the demand now requires immediate con* version to coal. At present the transmission of supply is confine...

EMPLOYMENT BUREAU. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
EMPLOYMENT BUREAU. Applications are constantly being made at this office for employment. In many cases the applicants are settlers, but very 3ften persons from outside the Atfeas desirous of coming with a view to settle ment are anxious to obtain employment on their arrival so as not to eat into their limited capital. In future it has been decided to register the names of all ap plicants for work at the Lands Office, as it is felt that by so doing assistance will be given to settlers needing same on. their farm, and at the same time the system may also prove an advantage in assisting intending settlers who would otherwise be unable to take up blocks. Settlers desiring farm hands are therefore invited to communicate with the Man ager, when every effort will be made to find assistance for them. There are, at the present time, a few applicants for em ployment on the Areas with whom set tlers could be brought into touch.
CANNING FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
CANNING FACTORY. Some of the settlers on the Area are so impressed with vegetable canning that they have decided . to start a small company to go fully into the business. A site has been ob tained near the Butter Factory and capi tal has been subscribed and paid into the Bank; It is understoocft the Company intends to begin operations almost at once, as a satisfactory offer has been made by a Sydney firm interested in the sale of canning outfits. If this be the case, the proposed Company should very short ly be in a position to deal with the mat ter of entering into contracts with intend ing growers.

AN APPRECIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
AN APPRECIATION. Recently a visit-was paid to the Areas by a party from the Wagga Experimental Farm, in charge of Mr. C. C. Crane, who has been good enough to express his appreciation of the work that had been done here. The following extract from a letter received from him is full of in terest " " One cannot fail to be impressed with the magnitude of the undertaking or with the wonderful progress that has been made in the two years since the water be came available. " From all that appears to the visitor, success must necessarily follow practically any line of agriculture provided the pion eer has sufficient capital to tide him over his first one or two unproductive years, though recent legislation in this direction will tend to overcome this difficulty, and provided also that he prove apt in adapt ing himself to a class of agriculture with which many, must .necessarily be un familiar. u From the general appearance of the young orchards on the Areas, and from the more mature orchar...

Tomatoes by the Ton. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
Tomatoes by the Ton. Under the above heading there recently appeared in the " Country Gentleman" an interview with an American farmer in Maryland7 who had been eminently successful in growing tomatoes. There appears to be some doubt as to whether certain kinds of vegetables will do well on the Areas under the present system of fortnightly waterings; such doubt, however, does not extend to toma toes, which under present conditions this year have been most prolific. It has been considered therefore that the statements made by the Maryland farmer referred to would be of interest to "Record'' readers, and they are now passed on. The Seed.-Saving the seed, according to this authority, is the important thing. He makes four pickings of seed tomatoes, and he does the picking personally. His system is rather interesting. The seed is only chosen from vines that are strong, healthy, and vigorous, of proper height and with stout stem. Not only so, but the shape of the fruit is taken into con si...
WORK AT THE LEETON PUBLIC SCHOOL-PROPOSED COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
WORK AT THE LEETON PUBLIC SCHOOL-PROPOSED COMPETITION. Following upon the paragraph which recently appeared in the " Record" regard ing the scientific work at the Leeton Pub lic School, it is with pleasure that an announcement is now made that arrange ments are in train for the holding of a competition among the children on simi lar lines to those which govern the Ameri can Corn Clubs. In this case, however, the children will be asked to plant onions. This crop does remarkably well on the Area, and can be planted during the winter. Each competitor will be obliged to cultivate a plot of land one chain long by half a chain wide; to keep a diary of all operations appertaining thereto; to render an exact account of all receipts and expenditure, including cost of labor at a fixed rate per hour; to write at the conclusion of the experiment a short es say entitled, " How I Succeeded in Grow ing Onions." It is intended that the judging should be done by a competent person, to be ap pointed ...
Water Users Associations. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
Water Users Associations. The distribution of water on the Mur rumbidgee Areas is carried on under a system of rotation, the water being af forded at intervals of fifteen days. The cost of water on an irrigation area is contingent, amongst other things, on the period between rotations. If water be supplied at more frequent intervals, the labor involved in distribution by the management is largely increased. If water be sent down channels at shorter intervals and smaller volumes, the losses are great. The additional cost of water is therefore due to the increased wages involved, and the additional losses by absorption and evaporation in the dis tributory channels. The price fixed for water on the Mur rumbidgee Irrigation Scheme was govern ed, firstly, by the estimated cost of the works, and, secondly, by the estimated cost of distribution. This.latter estimate is based on the ordinary practice adopted by the majority of irrigation schemes operating under similar conditions to the Mur...

To Dairymen. REGISTRATION OF DAIRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
To Dairymen. REGISTRATION OF DAIRIES. Many of the dairymen on th«# Area h&vei not yet applied for registration as the' law directs. The Dairy Supervision Act which operates on the Area, of course, provides for this, and any dairyman not complying with the conditions laid down is liable to prosecution at any time by the local officer responsible for the ad ministration of the Act. At Leeton the senior officer of police is the local au thority jor the enforcement of the Dairy Supervision Act, and the regulations thereunder. It is regretted that, at the present time, all the dairies on the Area are not up to the standard required, a great number of them being deficient in the following respects:-^ Separating Room and Cream Store.-In the case of eschelon stalls it is permissible to have the separating room of the cream store adjacent to the stalls, provided that the building is dust proof, and that the stalls are kept in. a clean and sanitary condition. With the ordinary open co...
THE LOCAL NURSERY—STOCKS AVAILABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
THE LOCAL NURSERY-STOCKS AVAILABLE. In a recent issue of the " Record" a statement appeared to the effect that the Commissioner's nursery at Leeton had sold out of certain leading lines of stock. Mr. Braithwaite reports that he has had a number of inquiries recently for in formation as to exactly what stock the Nursery at present is in a position to supply, and in the circumstances it is considered advisable to definitely advise settlers in this regard through the columns of the "Record." The position is as follows :-? Citrus stock (lemon and orange)-sold out. Peaches-Trees sold out. 20,000 dor mant buds still available. Apricots-13,000 trees. 20,000 dormant buds available. Pears, Prunes, and Plums-Fairly strong. Vines-Good stock. Mr. Braithwaite will be pleased to sup ply more detailed information to intend ing purchasers, but it is pointed out no time should be lost in placing orders, as there is a very decided run on the Nur sery just at present.
DEHORNING CALVES [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
DEHORNING CALVES Although dehorning cattle to a certain extent spoils their appearance, especially if they are to be entered for cpmpetitive exhibition at a show, there is no doubt that on an Area such as this, where, to a large extent, hand or stall feeding will be practised, it would pay settlers to de-. horn their calves. The benefit would be twofold. First of all, there would be a considerable saving of space in the stalls. The cow without horns takes less room than her sister who has them, and in the second place, the cows feed more quietly together, and any bad tempered animal is severely handicapped in her efforts to inflict injury on' her more peaceful com panions. The best method of dehorning is by means of caustic. The operation should be performed when the ca.lf is two or three days old. The hair should be cut away from around the young horn, and the top of it rubbed with. a stick of caustic potash slightly moistened. Care must be taken "that the caustic is not too moist,...
GENERAL NOT E PRIZES FOR LEETON BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
GENERAL NOT E PRIZES FOR LEETON BUTTER. It is with great pleasure that the an nouncement is made that Leeton butter was very successful at the recent Easter Show. Three entries were made: 1. For the best box of butter for local consumption. 2. For the butter-maker's prize. 3. For a box of butter opened on the first day of the Show and judged on the 4th. The first of these competitions is one of the most important conducted by the Royal Agricultural Society, and it is open to the whole of the States. As a matter of fact, a number of Queensland factories competed this year. It is very gratifying therefore, to be able to record that the butter produced on the Areas has suc ceeded in taking second prize, being only 1 point behind the first exhibit. The percentage-94-obtained is extremely good. In the second contest-the butter maker's prize for the best box of butter the Leeton Factory took third prize; and the exhibit entered in the third competi tion (the object of which is to test the...
Electric Light and Power. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
Electric Light arid Power. Some few reasons have already been given in these pages as to why settlers should avail themselves of the electric supply. It is a very fair assumption that all business premises in Leeton and Yanco will instal electric light, and already quite a number have either done so or have made the necessary application for it. During the last four weeks about 35 ap plications have been received for light or power, from farmers or shopkeepers. This seems to indicate that the electric habit is beginning to "catch on." * * » Apparently the idea of effective electric illumination has not yet been taken up seriously by shopkeepers here. The effect of a "blaze" of electric light in or out side a shop is magnetic. So far all, or nearly all, the lamps installed in shops on the Area are about 25 candle power each. Customers in one respect are like moths that cluster round a light. The fittings for a 25 c.p. light will carry 50 c.p., or even 100 c.p. and 200 c.p. globes. Ju...
The Story of Rosie. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
The Story of Rosie. Rosie was a lovely cow. She had no particular breeding, but she was nice to look at; had a kind and gentle disposi tion; and-gave such a quantity of milk. " My!" her fortunate owner used to say, " What a pity we cannot get more cows like Rosie !" One day a gentleman connected with the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Settler,?' Herd Testing Association came along and suggested to the dairyman who owned " Rosie" that he should join the Testing Association. He explained the benefit to be derived from so doing, and his listener was so impressed that he decided there and then to become a member. When he received the first results of the testing of his herd he called the tester all the bad names in - Webster," and some which cannot be found even in that com prehensive dictionary. Then he went to a friend who is a firm believer in herd testing, and repeated the performance - with extras. The trouble was that Rosie, according to the test, was the worst cow in the herd. That show...
CONFIRMATION OF M. BLUNNO'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
CONFIRMATION OF M. BLUNNO'S OPINION. It is rather a remarkable fact' that since the delivery of M. Blunna's lecture a very striking confirmation of the state' ments made by him has been supplied through the columns of the " Sydney Morning Herald," wherein reference was recently made to the case of Mr. R. E. Ireland, of St. Leonard'3 Vineyard, Wah gunyah, just across the Victorian border from Corowa, who by irrigation has pro duced 1000 gallons of must per acre-in fact, he has obtained as much as 1500 gallons, demonstrating that the judicious use of water, especially during a very dry season, must have the effect of greatly developing the wine industry. The re port goes on to state that the vineyard in question is mainly tight clay land with a stiff subsoil-the balance being of a sandy nature. It is not considered good land to irrigate. The vines are mostly on resistant stocks, and in addi ;ion to being irrigated, green manure and chemical fertilisers were used. From four-year-old vi...
