SALE OF DAIRY STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914
SALE OP DAIRY STOCK. An auction sale of about 50 head of springing cows and heifers will be held by the Commissioner at the sale yards, Lee ton, at 1.45 p.m. on the 10th June next. The sale will be conducted according to the usual conditions governing auction sales so held. Attention is directed to the fact that the conditions of sale will provide that purchasers must have sufficient permanent feed in sight on their farms to support the cattle purchased. If this condition, as well as others which are generally known, cannot be complied with, sales will not be permitted on terms.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914
PUBLIC SCHOOLS. It was noticed when in the vicinity of Stoney Point recently that a start had been made with the erection of the Bro benah School. The stump caps, are in, and a lot of the timber necessary for the building: appears to be on the site. In these circumstances, it will apparently not be long before the younger children of Stoney Point are being instructed in the mysteries of the three "R's" without the necessity of travelling several miles to Leeton1 day by day. Little schools such as that being erect ed at Stoney Point, which will be known as Brobenah School, will play a great part in the future development of the Areas. They have an important work to do, but at the same time care must be taken that the development of the large central schools is not overlooked. These will, in the course of time, develop into our superior public schools and high schools, and form the centres from which learning and culture will radiate throughout the whole of the Settlement.
LABOR FOR IRRIGATION FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914
LABOR FOR IRRIGATION FARMERS. In earlier issues we have drawn atten tion to the fact-that applications are re ceived from time to time at,the Manager's office, and also at the head office in Syd ney for employment on the Irrigation Areas. A large number of these applica tions are from boys leaving agricultural colleges and from individuals from the old country who would like to gain prac tical experience on an irrigation farm before becoming an applicant for land on the Areas. The Manager will be pleased to hear from any settler who is in a position to afford employment of the nature indi cated, or who requires assistance to this end. At the present time a young lad, who has completed a course of training at the Hawkesbury Agricultural College, and is now contemplating starting for himself, is available" for employment on the Irri gation Areas, his idea being that he shall learn irrigation farming. He expects his parents from England about the end of the year, when he purposes, with...

LEETON TEMPERANCE LEAGUE. A meeting of the Leeton Temperance League was held in the Baptist Church on the 20th instant. It was resolved to affiliate with the New South Wales Al liance so that the league would have the assistance of that body in the fight against a licensed hotel being opened in Leeton. The membership fee is5 1/ per annum. All temperance advocates are urged to join the league immediately. Subscrip tions or inquiries can be sent to the sec retary, Lee ton.
FIREWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1914
FIREWOOD. The weather is now becoming cold, and winter fires are a necessity. There is a certain amount of firewood still lying on some of the roads on the Areas, and the Manager has no objection to settlers using this for burning, provided they make ap- plication and obtain permission to cart it. A small charge will be made for the tim- ber .

PIGS IN THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
PIGS IN THE ORCHARD The Mildura "Cultivator" recently drew attention to the case of Mr. W. H. Down ing, of Curlong, near Mildura, who is rais ing a lot of pigs in conjunction with his orchard. The main point is that Mr. Downing considers that it would pay him to keep pigs even if he had to buy the bulk of the feed for them, so valuable does he find their manure fox^orchard pur poses. It will be remembered also that in a recent issue of the "Irrigation Record" attention was drawn to the case of Mr. Jacobs, of Mildura, who noticed an enorm ous increase in the yield of his lemon trees after they had been well manured from a similar source. Previous to the utilisation of the pig manure in this way, Mr. Jacobs had rooted up several acres of lemons, but after the manuring, the balance of the trees gave him excellent returns. The point is one worth keeping in mind. A grand concert for the purpose of rais ing funds for the erection of a vicarage and laying out of grounds in connection with ...
EMPIRE DAY AT FIVE BOUGH SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
EMPIRE DAY AT FIVE BOUGH SCHOOL. In last issue a report was published of the Emp-ire Day celebrations at Leeton Public School. It was not known at that time that celebrations had also been held at other schools on the Areas, but it has since been learned that the day passed off very successfully at Five Bough School. This is one of the small schools recently opened on the i\rea. The children's pic nic 'and sports were held in the pine grove on Dr. S. S. Smith's farm, No. 134, and in the evening he very kindly placed his residence at the disposal of the School Committee, and a very pleasant evening was spent by all concerned. Dr. Smith is to be congratulated on his public spirit. As is well known, he is one of the settlers who came to the Areas from California in the early days of the settlement, and the interest he is taking in Empire Day augurs well for the manner in which he has assi milated a respect :and admiration for British traditions and interests. The pro babilities are, ho...
Our Distributory System. Tho Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
Our Distributory System. Tho Regulations. From time to time complaints are heard from settlers that things might be better in connection with the distribution of water; that the regulations are too strict; that the system followed is not elastic enough; that the waterings are not as frequent as desirable; etc., etc. The season 1913-14 is now numbered amongst the things of the past, and for the next few months settlers will be able to devote their attention to ordinary farm matters, and leave the troubles inciden tal to the practice of irrigation to the next season. The time is, however, very op portune to go fully into the various points which are raised from time to time, and in the following notes an attempt has been made to do this. The Regulations Generally.-No set tler will for one moment argue that re gulations are not required in connection with the work, of water distribution. Granting their necessity, it must be ad mitted that they are useless unless en forced. After the ca...
LEETON BUTTER FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
LEETON BUTTER FOR EXPORT. During the past year a few trial ship ments of butter from the local factory have been forwarded to Sydney for export by one of the leading firms of the metropolis. Full market rates were paid to the Com missioner at the time of shipment, but an arrangement was made that if the but ler brought in London anything above top market prices, the additional amount so received should be handed over to the Commissioner. It is gratifying to be able to report that the shipments forwerded have been so highly thought of by Lon don buyers that there is a nice surplus to be handed over to, the Commissioner by the firm which handled the consign ments.
Pot Boiling. The Personal Experience of Mr. W. B. Brock, of Farm No. 24. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
Pot Boiling. The Personal Experience of Mr. W. B. Brock, of Farm No. 24. The fact that he anticipates that his hands will be full enough looking after his orchard during the coming year is given by Mr. Brock as his reason for let ting others into his . secrets. He states that he does not wish in any way to in duce other settlers to take up the lines he has followed or be accused of boom ing anything that might lead to anyone planting stuff which he might or might not be able to sell. Still, if anyone choses to apply any particular remark he is welcome to do so: " Farm 24 is a 50-acre block with a water right for 48 acres. Mv purpose was to grow fruit, and 30 acres was ac cordingly set out in trees, dormant buds. and vines, 11 acres of peaches, some ex clusively for canning, but the bulk varie ties that can be used either for marketing as fresh fruit, drying, or canning. About 160 of these were replanted this year, their predecessors being dormant buds that were ringbarked by cutworm...

MAIZE GROWING! [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
MAIZE GROWING! At the beginning of the season several farmers set aside plots for experimental work to be carried out by the Agricul tural Department. A number of these were devoted to maize-growing, several well-known varieties, such as " Hickory King," "90-Day," "Funk's Dent," "Ordinary Yellow Dent," and "Boone County Spe cial" being tried. The various plots have now reached maturity, and as soon as an opportunity offers, Mr. McDiarmid, who has been appointed by the Department of Agriculture to supervise the experimental work on the Areas has promised to afford the "Record" full information as to the re sults obtained. One thing is, however, al ready apparent, that is, "that "Boone County Special" has done better than any of the other varieties of maize tried. "Boone County Special* is a white maize, and has a good reputation in America. It will be interesting to see whether the good results obtained this year are repeated next year, -but, in the meantime, -settlers intending to p...
The Cultivator Again. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
The Cultivator Again. Attention has been drawn on more than one occasion in the columns of the "Re cord' to the success achieved by settlers who have endeavoured to grow crops with a minimum of water. In tfoese days when agitations are afoot for weekly waterings, too much prominence cannot be given to the other side of the picture. It is generally admitted all the world over thac 100 much water is a bad thing. The same does not, however, apply to too much cul tivation. Mr. L. J. Sou thee, of Farm 318, recently submitted a sample of sweet potatoes ac the managers ottice which it would be hard to beat. The whole of the tubers from the root weighed 331bs. Most of this weight was included in two tubers, which were simply of an enormous size considerably bigger than an ordinary pump kin. Mr. Southee stated that his crop would average 201bs. per root, although most every plant in his little lot of 50. had been well bandicooted. He advocated planting runners at a distance of 3 feet apart e...
GARDEN PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
GARDEN PLANTS. Efforts are continually being made by means of notification in the "Irrigation Record" and otherwise to warn settlers against the danger of introducing phyl loxera and other diseases on to the Areas by bringing in plants of various kinds without authority. At the present season of the year many settlers are obtaining garden plants by post from friends in different parts of the country. The districts from which these plants come, in some cases, absolutely reek with disease of various kinds, but in spite of the grave danger of introducing pests by such means and the repeated warnings and requests which have been made that settlers should not do so, there are still some who refuse to "see that their interests and the interests of the settle inent are being protected by the strict en forcement of the regulations. It therefore appears advisable to again quote for the information of offenders the regulations dealing with the matter, and it might also be stated that the pena...
Paspalum. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
Paspalum. *' Kyogle," apparently a man of con siderable experience in connection with the growing of paspalum, makes some statements in the following letter which should be of more than ordinary interest to settlers on the Areas. It should be pointed out, however, that although Mr. O'Callaghan has been permitted to plant a little paspalum for demonstration pur poses, that is no criterion that the in troduction of the seed will be permitted. The Commissioner is going fully into the question, but the matter is one of such importance- that full inquiries are neces sary before a final decision can be ar rived at. To the Editor " Irrigation Record," Leeton. Sir,-Referring to Mr. O'Callaghan's ar ticle on "Permanent Pastures for Dairy Cows" in your issue of the 1st instant, and more especially to that portion of it wherein he advocates the sowing of pas palum on this Area, I would like, with your permission, to ask the settlers to pause before allowing the wholesale in troduction of this ...

The school, of which full particulars can be obtained on application to the Depart ment of Agriculture, will commence on the 23rd idem.
IRRIGATING TWO-ACRE BLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914
IRRIGATING TWO-ACRE BLOCKS During the past season two-acre blocks have been served with water every Satur day afternoon and Sunday morning. To do this, it has been necessary to keep two extra Water Bailiffs practically for that purpose. Last season there were only two groups of two-acre blocks to be served, and it was possible to make arrangements to keep the two men employed during the intervals between waterings on other work. Next season it is anticipated that there will be several more sections of two acre blocks to irrigate, and it will not be possible to keep all the men employed during the period intervening between watering. There are one or two methods of dealing with the matter. One is to have a six days' rotation under certain conditions, to which no doubt many two-acre men will object. Another is for settlers to make arrangements themselves for taking charge of the waterings for Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. No doubt other solutions of the difficulty could be ...
