WELCOME.RAINS iN SOUTH AUS TRALIA. ADELAIDE, Monday. One of the best rains for years fell in the northern districts on Sunday, and tlhe whole aspect of the pastoral industry m that country has changed. The s±iuauon 'had become grave. In the vicinity of Charlotte Wafers sheep were dying, and fat stock were becoming very scarce on the Adelaide market, as the route was almost impassable. Three and three-quar ter inches fell at Charlotte \Waters. This will open the route 'and enable a full sup ply of fat stock to be drafted southwards, while the growth of feed and water con serves will remove anxiety. There is a likelihod of furt'her beneficial rains through I the!pedtoraaicta where theoy' a re rnAiO needed; At QOckburn 52 points fell by 8;a.m. tb.day, and should the couitry north 'and ias·of.Brokeh Hill experien?ea downpour it will .e of incaloulable benefit.

BUSH FhIES ON THE BORDEll. TWENTY MILES OF FLAME. FIRE FIGHTERS' A.RDUOUS TASK. nALBURY, ?Mondhy. SFiires have been raging for nine days along the Upper Murray, extending from Tulmbarumba on the east to Germanton on the west, and Wymalh and Jingellic on the south. The difficulty in keeping do'n the main blaze at Dora Dora arose from the heavily timbered character of the bulk of the country through which the fire travelled. Tihe wind carried the spiarks from tree top to tree top, thus rendering abortive the efforts of the fire fighters, who, in the hope of causiig, a block, had to resort to the felling of trees as fire breaks. Information received thi, morning from WVyma.h Whowed that the- Dora Dora fire had burnt over a face of about twenty miles, and that it was travelling down the river. Numbers of holding9e were destroyed, fencing and crops burnt, and stock roasted to death. Advices received from German ton show that the fire in that region is now burning up towards Tiambarum:ba....

BUSH FIRES IN PLENTY RANGES. WALLAN, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
BUSH FIRES IN PLE~NTY I?AGES. . WALLAN, Mojiday. The bush fire which hasbeen burningin the Plenty Ranges for the past three weeks is still in evidence. Fortunately the fire is burning away from settlements, but it is doing damage to what should be valuable timber reserves. A good deal of damage is also being done to the flumes and races of the Kilmore W~ateiworks Trust, near the head works of the trust by falling trees. The fire has got a face of several miles stretchling from what is known as the Cock pit Creek to within a mile or two of Wan dong. The forest for the past six or seven years has been strictly closed against snlitters and other timber getters, but fires rIvage the reserves almost unchecked. The efforts of the Government to prevent bush fires are not commensurate with the seriousness of the situation.
