GHERKINS FOR CANNING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

GHERKINS FOR CANNING. As most people are aware, the gherkin might be fairly accurately described as a small variety of cucumber largely used foi pickling purposes. Judging by the success achieved last year by settlers in growing cucumbers of the ordinary varie ties, for which there was a very limited demand, little trouble need be feared in successfully growing gherkins. It ap pears that better results can be expected from the sale of gherkins than was the case last year with the larger varieties of cucumber. At the present time pickling gherkins are largely imported, and there is a very great demand for them. In quiries ace. being made as to whether the right seed can be secured, and in the meantime settlers interested in the mat ter are advised to endeavor to obtain seed on their own account, as the mana ger of the canning factory is confident a market can be found for all the pickled gherkins that can be produced on the Areas this year.

Some Points from America. ME. MEAD'S REGENT REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

Some Points from America. ME. MEAD'S REGENT REPORT. Mr. Elwood Mead, Chairman of the State Rivers and Water Supply Commis sion, Victoria, has recently returned from an extended tour of the Irrigation settlements in Western America and his report to the Minister for Water Supply was recently printed. It contains 'a large amount of valuable information which is applicable not only to Victorian conditions but also to our own. Speaking of the; policy of accepting set tlers with a smiall amount of capital, Mr. Mead points out that such a policy is ab solutely essential if the irrigation areas of Victoria are to be settled within a reasonable time. The same policy is fol lowed by the Canadian-Pacific railway. When asked what capital was insisted upon in connection with settlers on their land the reply was received :-"If a set tler looks right we give him a trial almost regardless of capital. We have to take seme risks if we are; to complete our de velopment in a reasonable time." The s&am...

MARKETING OF TURKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

MARKETING OF TURKEYS. In response to a recent inquiry, the De partment of Agriculture has supplied the following additional information regarding the marketing of turkeys: "In the year 1912 turkeys became scarce owing to destruction by foxes .and rabbit poison. Prices ran as high as 70s. per pair, which price was paid at our auctions in December, 1912. In the year 1913 tall poultry buyers were keen an procuring a stock of 'turkeys, fearing famine prices in December, and good prices were paid throughout the year. Turkey breeders, finding values good, took care to protect their birds from foxes by enclosing them at night, which is now general throughout the State, as witness ed by our Mr. Mossman on a recent tour. By protecting the birds a good increase in supplies resulted. The birds were bought freely and frozen during 1913, a great quantity being still in cold store, but as their cost was fairly high little or no export trade could be done ex cept at a loss, which accounts for a la...

Dairying Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

Dairying Notes. By H. A. Alexander. Grasses.-Now that "Paspalum" and "Couch" have been barred from the Areas a settler's choice of grasses at this time of the year rs limited practically to " Rhodes" and some of our native grasses. "Prairie," "rye," " cockfoot," or any of the other well-known English grasses should on no account be sown during the spring. They are essentially winter grasses, and if planted now they will in all probability germinate and die out, " Rhodes" grass, on the other hand, is an importation from the dry South African veldt, and there it is a summer grower. Its seed is very fine, consequently only a small amount per acre is required. I would recommend sowing about 71b. of " Rhodes" to the acre, with 31b. of lu cerne. The lucerne has the advantage of helping to give a balanced ration to cattle pastured on the " Rhodes" grass paddock. It takes the place of the clov ers. Being a summer grass, "Rhodes" should only be planted during the spring months. If sown in th...

BULRUSHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

BULRUSHES. In many of the old McCaughey chan nels which still traverse farms in various parts of the settlement^ there is at the present time a large crop of bulrushes, one of the greatest pests with which the irrigation farmer has to contend. Too much stress cannot be laid upon the fact that settlers should use every endeavour to eradicate this weed from their blocks, both for their own sakes and that of their neighbours. If the bulrushes are not dealt with at once they will practically have a lease of life for another season, and "the trouble next year will be in finitely worse than it is ,now. Like many other weeds, cutting off at the surface of the ground is useless. The bulrush clump must be chopped right out or it wall come again. . 'J

Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

Lucerne. Notes by Mr. H. R. Alexander, Senior Instructor. To those who were unable to plant lu cerne in the autumn the month of Septem ber gives an opportunity to make up for lost time. The first essential in connection with the planting of lucerne is to have the ground in a good state of tilth. Many settlers on the Areas in their anxiety to establish a lucerne paddock have planted before their land was really in a proper condition to receive the seed This fhas, in some cases, resulted in disappointment. In every instance I think it is advisable that lucerne paddocks should be at least ploughed and cropped once before any attempt is made to sow. This is the advice which has been given to settlers right since the inception of the scheme. A second ploughing and a second crop would, be a still greater advantage on some of the heavier soils, but to plant lucerne on this heavier soil without first ploughing and cropping means that an at tempt is actually being made to erow lucerne on lan...

Irrigation Settlers and the Coastal Farmers Co-operative Society. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

Irrigation Settlers and the Coastal Farmers Co-operative Society. Address by Mr. G. E. D. Meares. Recently Mr. C. E. D. Meares, man aging director of the Coastal Farmers' Co operative Society, visited the Irrigation Areas and addressed a public meeting call ed for the purpose. He explain 3d very fully to the settlers present the aims and objects of his society, giving at the same time a short, resume of its early history and operations to date. The meeting was largely attended-as such meetings go on the Irrigation Areas -but as the ssttlers present formed a very small proportion of the whole of the settlers on the Areas, and the matter of co operation is one of transcendent impor tance to the scheme, it is felt that noth ing but good can be done by passing on to the whole settlement some of the in formation which Mr. Meares gave to his hearers. Many of the settlers on the Areas are men with strong co-operative views, and they have had previous experience in the movement, not only so...

FARM DESIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

-FARM DESIGNS. Settlers requiring their minor contour survey, plans or any assistance in con nection with the lay-out of their farms for irrigation purposes should immediately apply to the Manager. If this course be taken, it will be possible for the officer in charge to gauge what the requirements of the -settlement in this direction actually are, and to make his arrangements ac cordingly, so that the information re quired may be given as expeditiously as the capacity of the staff will allow. Set tlers should understand that the earlier an application is in, the earlier it will be dealt with. In the past, there has been a great tendency to allow applications for assistance of this nature to wait until the last minute, with the result that the staff has been unable to give the best results owing to a lot of .important work being crowded into <a period altogether too short for its proper carrying out.

General Notes. TO SETTLERS REQUIRING ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

General Notes. TO SETTLERS REQUIRING ADVICE. The management is anxious that set tlers should communicate with the offfce, in all matters relating to crops, irrigatifcli, &c., and every assistance possible will be given to those requiring advice. It must be remembered that the Commissioner's expert advisers are here for that very purpose. Although an effort is being made to see every settler on the Areas as often as possible, it necessarilv baooens that just at the present important junc ture it is impossible for every settler on the Areas to be seen within a few weeks. It is probable, therefore, that urgent cases may be missed. A postcard will result in a visit from-an inspector prac tically immediately after its receipt, or if one of the water bailiffs is advised the information can be passed on to the senior instructor, who will see that t\ie matter is attended to.

Patriotic Fund. The Irrigation Areas are not behind hand in the matter of the 'establishment of a, Patriotic Fund. A commencement has already been made at a meeting held in the Leeton Club Room, and well on towards £100 has been subscribed. The meeting re ferred to, which was in the nature of a preliminary one, is to be followed by a public meeting in the "Enterprise Hall," Leeton, when it is hoped that the move ment will receive a further strong im petus. A branch of the Red Cross Society tas also been foraged, under the presidency of Mrs. L. A. B. Wade, and the ladies of the settlement are entering into the movement with enthusiasm.

SANITARY CHARGES. The .attention of householders who are served by the Commissioner's sanitary waggons is directed to the alteration which has recently been made in the "re gulations ^dealing with the charges. Pre viously, the charge for visits to the pre mises has been 6d., but it will be seen by the amended regulation, No. 290, that in future the cost per visit will be increased to 9d. This increase has been made ne cessary in order to ensure a good service and to prevent a loss on the trading ac count of the sanitary service. It might be pointed out that 9d. is the recognised charge for such services in most country districts of the Western part otf the State.
