The Washington Navel Orange. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
Thie Washington Navel Orange. -4 Of all the different varieties of oranges the Washington Navel is con sidcred the most valuable on account of its heavy hearing properties (under proper cultivation), long life, and the high price it always comnmnds in the market at home and abroad. Its ship ping qualities are excellent, and its size and flavour have indisputably placed it first as the prize orange of the world. Much discussion has occured in America over its true variety and name, but it is now universally known as the " Washington Navel." It is the true Bahia Navel grafted on sweet stock, and it is sometimes called the " Riverside Navel," " California Seed less," " Bahia Orange." It is with this variety the famous irrigation colonies of Riverside, Ontario and Ettiwanda are planted, which are Iow COlllllnad ing such fabulous prices per acre. Orchards planted with this variety, as with all other kinds of oranges, should depend entirely upon irrigamtion for noisture, tile advantage be...

Notes and Queries. -4---+- CAUTIoN.-Certainly the suitability of the climate and soil of the Lower IMurray district for citrus fruits has been estab. lished beyond a doubt by actual experi ment. Some large and healthy orange trees are to be seen in the garden at the Mtildur homestead, and M?r. folding's garden at Wetutworth, of which particu lars will shortly be given, produces some of the nmost magnificeent specimens of the citrus family ever exhibited in Australia. P'UZZLED.-From the meagre particu. lars furnished by you it is difficult to say what is troubling your orange trees. Possibly the defect might be found to be in the subsoil. Mr. Bertram, of Euston station, had a novel experience which might afford you a clue. lie found that after three or four years his orange trees became sickly, shedding their leaves and refusing to bear, although they had been flourishing previously. After trying all tihe remedies that he could hear of, and without success. he decided that the roots ...

Progressive Mildura. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
Progressive Mildura. Although Mildura can boast no very pre- tentious buildings as yet, still there are some establishunents which will bear description ; and as our contract is to tell the outside world all about Mildura, a few particulars of them will be perhaps interesting. The largest, busiest, and noisiest of the lot is that known as the Mildura Engineering Works. This business is carried on in a building of 80ft x 40ft right on the present wharf. It was erected in January of the present year for the purpose of repairing and keeping in order the machinery and engines on the settlement and to arrive. It was fitted up with a number of appliances of modern type, among which were a large lathe, two drilling machines, bolt and nut-screwing machine, punching machine, and shearing machine, besides an extensive plumbing and pipe-fitting outfit. Three smiths' forges, supplied by a powerful fan-blast, are kept going constantly. Frequently the fires have to be kept going all night to get ...
THE SORT OF SETTLERS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
THE SORT OF SETTLERS WANTED. IT is a widely-spread notion that the Chaffey Bros. are possessed of fabulous riches, which they have shipped out to Australia to scatter round anyhow. There are persons to whom it never seems to have occurred that men who have achieved success by their extra- ordinary energy and pluck—among a people noted for shrewdness and sharp dealing—are not the sort to leave America to come and fool it away in Australia. It is just as well to at once realise the fact that the Mildura colony was not founded for charitable pur- poses at all. The Clhaffeys came here with the idea of making money a little faster than they were doing in America, and it is not, and it never has been, their intention to pose as public phil- anthropists. The promises they hold out to intending investors are such as they can reasonably hope to fulfil to the letter, and are just what their keen regard for their own interests tells them will be most likely to attract settlers and induce them ...
MISHIEVOUS FALSEHOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
MISCHIEVOUS FALSEHOODS. THE Mildura scheme, the manner in &nbsp; which it is being carried out, and the treatment received by the settlers and labourers already here are subjects on which the outside public are deeply interested, and it is of the utmost im- portance that the truth should be told about them. The promoters of the settlement can readily see that a policy of misrepresentation would simply ruin their chances of success, and that to establish confidence and attract in- vestors it would never do to lead the general public astray. They are not doing so, for they have always courted the strictest inquiry into their methods and actions, and so far nothing can be truthfully alleged against them. They are, however, unable to prevent the circulation of grossly misleading reports such as have recently appeared in some of the leading papers, and the public (ignorant of the facts) are likely to be led astray about the settle- ment and its affairs unless a prompt contradicti...
Mildura Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
Mildura Agricultural College. As soon as there are 100 families settled at Mildura, the building of an agricultural college on the settlement will be conunenced. The endowment provided for its maintenance is a mag- nificent one, consisting of one-fifteenth part of the total land to be granted in fee simple by the Government to the Messrs Chaffey Bros. The agreement gives the Government the right to vest the land either in the existing Agri- cultural Colleges' Council or in such other corporation or body of person as may be decided upon. The Messrs Chaffey are to erect the building, but no stipulation as to size or cost has been made. In conversation with our representative a few days ago, Mr G. Chaffey said it was their intention to request the Department of Agriculture to furnish plans for a suitable building, and on that being done the firm would erect one of the wings to suit the early requirements of the place, and the trustees coull then complete the build- ing when circumstanc...
CHOKED WITH ITS OWN EFFLUVIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
CHOKED WITH ITS OWN EFFLUVIUM. &nbsp; For some weeks past a sorry sheet has been printed at Wentworth, New South Wales, and circulated under the name of the Mildura Irrigationist. Its apparent policy almost from its beginning was to create discord in the rettlement, and to set the Messrs CHAFFEY Bros and the settlers at variance with each other. It however succeeded in doing very little mischief, as the personal ill-will was too apparent throughout to allow of any importance being attached to its fulminations. The barking was too vehement to admit of the bite taking effect. After carping at Messrs CHAFFEYs' doings for several weeks without result, the proprietor has discovered the fact that they are not to be scared away by his mighty roaring, and on Wednesday he announced that the publication of the Irrigationist would thereafter be discontinued. He is right. He should sleep his little tantrum off, and in future devote his energies to his own affairs. The brief and inglorio...
WENTWORTH SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
WENTWORTH SPORTS. &nbsp; The May meeting of the Wentworth Pedestrian Club was held in the sports grounds on Thursday. Being the Queen's Birthday, the day was observed as a close holiday, and Wentworth was almost quite deserted for the running grounds, which are situated across the Darling River about quarter of a mile from the town. The club is a live one, and the members take a keen interest in its success. A capital track for pedestrian and bicycle competitions has been prepared and the reserve has been fenced in and fitted up with a grand stand, dressing room, club room, and other conveniences. The Wentworth sports always attract a good number of pedestrians, as not only are there liberal prizes offered at every meeting, but the arrangements made and the character of the men who carry them out, ensure fair play to every man. Thursday's meeting brought out a long list of entries. For the Sheffield Handi- cap there were 18 acceptors, and half that number started for the Hur...
LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
LOCAL AND GENERAL, So far as Mildura and its residents were o concerned, the Culti?ator made its ap- I pearance under excellent auspices. The 5 numerous difficulties attending the establish ment of a printing office in the settlement, a particularly at this season of the year,l when goods take at least twice as long as they ought to in transit, caused a long delay in printing the first sheet. The t residents began to grow impatient, and as week after week went by without any sign of the COltirator the intentions of the proprietors began to be questioned. How ever, on the 17th inst. it was decided by the staff to risk an issue for the following t Saturday, although a large number of the t accessories were still to arrive. Word was sent round the settlement that the first issue would positively be struck off on Saturday morning, and the residents turned out in force to witness the ceremony Ahout 10 o'clock there was a considerable" crowd gathered, and everything being in readiness Mli...

There arec now about 90 children on the settlement, and we sub mit that the residents have a good case in asldng the Education depart ment to establish a State school at once. Telegraphic commnumnicition was pro mised to the residents about live months ago. The line from Euston to Went worth passes within two miles of the settlement, and arrangements were made some time. since between the Postal departments of New: South Wales and Victoria whereby the Mlil dura people were to be allowed .t avail themselves of the line cI the connection being ilade. The survey for tile connection was completed' long since, a telegraph oitice has been erc led, and nothing but the eternal reda tape and departmental dawdling stauds in the way.
