IRRIGATION IN AUSTRALIA.
Her Pastoral Aicas Mora Vahatlo
Than Etr Macs.
Australia lias in hervustpnstoralaieiissour
ces of wealth us great and more permanent
than those of her mines. Already she has
nearly one hundred million sheep , which in
the mild c'imate ' and under the sunny sky of
the country icquire no shelterthroughout the
year and no food uejoud what they get on the
open plains. It is true tluit the bunny sky
may change to a slcy of brass , and thut drought
is the dread of the Australian shepherd , herds
man nnd farmer. Occasionally theie is a suc
cession of dry seasons , and then sheep have
perished by millons and cattle by thousands
on the more icmote stations. To master ic-
cimnif droughts is the great question of
Australia's inland future. IIuic. as elsewheie ,
nature challenges man's free advance and
places one special obstacle in his was. Aus
tralians are facing their task with energy ,
confidence , and the promise of much success
They have learned the art ol drawing wealth
even from scrub land of which n single sheep
requires several acres for its support. Irriga
tion works on a large scale have been begun
in Victoria and South Australia. The storage
of water m reservoirs is being carried out in a
large way by municipalities and private com
panies. Throughout New South Wales and
Queensland the boring ol artesian wells has
met with satisfactory success. Once given
the certain means of carrying the flocks and
herds through the occasional periods of
drought , there seems no limit to the pastoral
capacity of such immense provinces as New
South Wales and Queensland. With complet
ed systems of irrigation Australia promises
iu uuuuiuu UUB ui iuu greuiusi grape uuu
growing countries in the world. The many
difficulties with which men are confronted on
this great continent are more than matched
by its wonderful possibilities. George JR.
