SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914

SCHOOLS. 1 The Department of Agriculture in. the United States of America is a very large concern, and has many activities. One of these is the working up of interest in agriculture in the schools. There is a special branch which is charged with the responsibility of this work. For this pur pose there are all sorts of clubs--Corn Clubs, Egg Clubs, Canning Clubs, and the like. Our readers are aware that the Commissioner has made a small beginning in a similar direction at the Leeton school, aad prizes are to be awarded in connection with the cultivation of onions. We say this is a small beginning, for the Commis sioner intends, if the first attempt is brought to a successful issue, to go fur ther in this matter. It is more than grati fying to know that the question of school agriculture is being taken up in Sydney, and an association is being formed to carry out the scheme on somewhat simi lar lines to that of the United States. It is understood that the Department of Education is ba...

AUSTRALIAN DRIED FRUITS AND PRESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914

AUSTRALIAN DRIED FRUITS AND PRESERVES. Mr. Benjamin Chaffey, of Mildura fame, is at present on a tour of the United States, and he has, according to the "Mur ray Pioneer," been supplying some infor mation regarding the market for dried fruits and preserves in Western America, which is of great interest to irrigation set tlers in Australia. In British Columbia, for example, Mr, Chaffey found splendid prices being paid for dried apricots, and also for raisins and currants. The fruit obtainable was very inferior to the Ren mark and Mildura article, and he was of opinion that there should be good money for a man who was willing to sell Austra lian dried fruit in British Columbia on a commission basis. It appears that the men in the great lumber camps live large ly on dried fruits and jams. Most of the jam and other , preserves, curiously though'it may appear, go to British Co lumbia from -London. This would seem to indicate that the making of a suitable trading arrangement between Canad...

AGRICULTURAL BUREAU. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

AGRICULTURAL BUREAU. Recently, through the "Irrigation Re cord," attention was drawn to the fact that it had been decided to establish an Agricultural Bureau at Leeton. It was felt by the Commissioner that possibly men seeking employment on the Areas could, by means of the bureau, be brought into touch with settlers on the Areas de siring to obtain assistance in the working of their farms. Up to the present time a number of names of applicants for work have been registered by Mr. Hegarty, of the Lands Office, who has charge of the bureau, but there, have been practically no applications from settlers wishing to get into touch with those desirous of ob taining work. It may be, however, that the establishment of the bureau has not been noted by settlers interested, conse quently this further intimation is pub lished.

General Notes. THE SITE OF THE BACON FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

General Notes. THE SITE OF THE BACON FACTORY. At the recent public meeting held at Leeton, the proposed bacon factory was under discussion, and a request was made that the site might be altered from Yanco siding to somewhere in the vicinity of Leeton. The Commissioner stated that he was very glad to have the opportunity, ot explaining to the settlers the reason which had influenced him in deciding upon the Yanco site as the best position for the bacon factory. In the first place, however, he pointed out that as far as fruit and vegetables were concerned, there was no question but that they would be canned in the vicinity of the butter factory. The bacon factory, however, was in a different cate gory, since it was in the nature of a noxious trade. The only place near Lee ton where a site could be chosen would be on the western side of the town, and as the prevailing wind came from the west, it would undoubtedly be a nuisance, if not a menace to public health. Another point which had ...

Pot Boilers for Mirrool. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

Pot Boilers for Mirrool. In the recent issue of the "Record" a correspondent signing himself "Excelsior" went fully into the question of the dis abilities the Mirrool settlers experience in the way of finding "pot boilers" to keep them going until their young orchards reach the reproductive stagte. It was pointed out by the correspondent men tioned that as far as Mirrool is concer ned dairying was not nearly the same proposition as at Yanco owing to the distance the settlement is situated from the Wilbriggie railway station and the Leeton butter factory. The soundness of this view of the case cannot but be admitted, still as "Excelsior" seems to doubt whether any other satisfactory means exists of keeping the pot boiling, it is perhaps as well to draw special at tention to two or three means by which this may be satisfactorily done even by settlers at Mirrool. Of course, it is to be remembered that the Barellan-Griffith railway will in all probability soon be completed, tut look ing...

PUBLIC SCHOOL, LEETON. Empiro Day Celebrations. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

PUBLIC SCHOOL, LEETON. Empiro Day Celebrations. Empire Day was celebrated at Leeton by the holding of a school picnic on the Recreation Reserve on Saturday, 23rd instant, followed on Monday by a patriotic demonstration in the grounds of the pub lic school. Parents and citizens heartily co-operated in making the function a huge success. The sum of £40 was subscribed towaids the purchase of prizes, &c., for the day. Willing workers were much in evidence, and energetic committees supervised ar rangements generally. Altogether 400 children participated, 300 of these being pupils of "the local public school and the rest children under school age. The children" assembled in the school grounds and marched, in charge of their teachers, to the picnicking ground, where the fun commenced, and continued throughout the day. There were races of every variety and descrip tion-flat races, obstacle races,, sack races, skipping races, flag races, potato races, three-legged races &c. T...

LEETON CEMETERY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

LEETON CEMETERY. At a recent meeting of the Leeton Cemetery Trust, it was decided to prac tically adopt the regulations for the con trol of the Hay cemetery. The only re gulation concerning which any discussion took place was that in connection with the disposal of the Trust funds. It was pointed out by the Rev. H. Freeman that in most country cemeteries the trustees of the various denominational sections had the full control of the revenue naised by the respective denominations. It was considered, however, by the meeting, that it would be better for the cemetery as a whole if the funds collected were placed to a joint account and expended for the general good of the cemetery. Eventually this view was embodied in a motion and carried, the resolution reading as follows: The expenditure actually incurred by the board of management shall be a charge against the whole of the revenue . collected by the various denominational Trusts. Any surplus after the pay ment of (1) salaries, wages, ...

Stump Removal by Explosives. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

Stump Removal by Expl osives. Mr. Brooks, of Farm No. 3, Mirrool, has recently been removing stumps from his block by the use of gelignite. He has kept accurate particulars as to the ex pense which has been incurred for the work done, and his figures are most in teresting. The stumps dealt with in the main have been broken off flush with the ground by the bullocks, and consisted mainly of pine from 10 inches to two feet in diameter, and green box trees up to eight feet in diameter. The results achieved have been emi nently satisfactory, as the following figures in regard to cost will show. For small oak stumps and green pine to 10 inches, three plugs of gelignite (cost ing 2Jd), one detonator (id), and a length of fuse (id), comprise all that is required in the way of material. The labor consists of boring an auger hole well under the stump into solid wood. It may be sometimes 9in. and sometimes 18in. in length. The distance, of course, must be judged by the angle of the auger hole....

The Marketing of Turkeys. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

The Marketing of Turkeys. The Department of Agriculture has fur nished a report in connection with the marketing of live turkeys which will no doubt be of interest, to readers of the "Irri gation Record." In view of the fact that in all probability arrangements will shortly be made for the carriage of perishable goods from Yanco so as to connect with the express goods which will deliver the birds in Sydney next morning, the question naturally arises as to whether the produc tion of turkeys would not at once be worth settlers' while, since they can be m'arketed alive. As the establishment of Lreezirig works will be pushed on with all speed, it may soon be possible to market the turkeys by medium of cold storage facilities. In the n^eantime settlers who consider it advisable to go into turkey raising on a large or small scale will have to make certain prelimi nary arrangements. The information now given should enable them to say whether or not the business will be worth while: "There ...

PRIZES FOR FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

PRIZES FOR FARMS. Provision has been made on the Com missioner's estimate for the current year for the giving of small prizes for the best kept farms on the Irrigation Areas. It has been decided to receive applications up to the 30th proximo, on forms which can be obtained at the Manager's office. The judging will not be done until the end of October next, when the farms should be looking their best. The fact that a large number of farms on the Areas have not been in occupation for a long enough period to enable them to be brought into first-class order has not been overlooked, but it is felt that these will have a chance of competing for the prizes later on. The conditions governing the competition will be as broad as possible. The prizes will be as follows: For the best Two acre farm £2 Over 2 and up to 10 acre farm .... £5 Over 10 and up to 20 acre farm .. £8 Over 20 acre farm £10 The word "best" in connection with this competition is intended to cover lay ing out and general app...

Electric Light and Power. The Paths of Progress:— "Progress is the Law of Life—man is not man as yet." [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914

Electric Light and Power. The Paths of Progress: "Progress is the Law of Life-man is not man as yet." Thus sang one of the sages, and in our present days of works and inventions we realise perhaps more fully than did our forefathers the great truth implied in these few words. In these times of aerial transport, wireless telegraphy, etc., we are ever expecting new inventions, and are not very surprised at anything that may be introduced now, though our forefathers would have laughed such things to scorn. The last 50 years has been filled with wonders, and the progress seems to have been much more rapid than previously. This is particularly the case in regard to agricultural inventions, and it is the state; of the agricultural development which per haps, more than anything else, influences the prosperity of the race. Possibly the greatest development in agricultural pro gress has been in Germany or America, and each machine that has been intro duced has for its object the reduction in...
