The Price of Milk. ? WoIloLgong, - Thursday.— The dis satisfaction of dairy farmers through out tbe district on account of the unremuuerative prices which for some monthB post thny have been receiving for their niilk from the Sydney com panies has raiched an acute stage, and there is a very general feeling that. the. suppliers should act in corahination and absolutely refuse to send a drop of milk to Sydney unless paid for at a price which they consider fair and reasonable. The rate at present ruling is considered particularly low, in, view of the fact that winter is fast ap proaching, and thai there, are at prese.it more idle cows on the farms than lias p'erhaps ever previously been the case.

Society and the Robert son Agricultural Society have this yeat come out on. the right fininc'al side. Tbo last-named society tried the ex periment of altering the month of their show, but ii, does not appear to many that it was altogether a success. Not withstanding this, however, and the severe depression which has run riot through the district during the past three years, oar two district shows have more than held their own. That fact speaks volumes for the resources, of the district, and the bosiness-like management of the respective com raitteea. At ths Annual meeting of the Ber rima District A. H. and I. Society, at Moss Vale ou Wednesday last, the chairman, Mr. W. M'Courb suggested that future iiuprovemauts to the sbow ground should not he done in a. hap hazard WHy.
