FLOODS IN N.S.W. HOUSES SURROUNDED BY WATER | . EXTENSIVE DAMAGE. Phenomenal rains have fallen in New South Wales. Many houses in Parramatta and district were surroun ded by flood waters," and children had to be placed on tables for safety. There were narrow escapes from drowning, and thousands of pounds' worth of property has been damaged. The floods were the result of heavy rains, the worst for 26 years. The whole place was covered with water, which raced down streets, tearing up lumps of asphalt weighing a ton like sheets of paper. There was hardly a dry house in the .district.

Tlio figures for 1912 in dicate, not only that tluf motherland's amazing volume of Imports is increas ing, but what is of no less importance to Australia, that the. United States, once a formidable competitor in wheat, Hour, and meat in the import trade of Great Britain, is rapidly falling out of tlio contest. Her own increase in po pulation (now nearly 100 millions) is taxing her productive capacity in foodstuffs to such an extent that tlia surplus available for export in nearly ail her staple products is vanishing. MEAT IMPORTS." This is strikingly illustrated in Great Britain's imports of meat in 1912. Tho total value of these from all countries (beef, mutton, lamb, bacon, hams, and pork) was no less than £47,137,000. The United States once had the lion'3 share of the beef trade. She Is no...

THE PAPER WITH THE LARGEST CIRCULATION. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS, WITH SUPPLEMENT. ' . FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 1914. A deputation from Karkarooc Shire, which waited upon the Minister of Public Works on .Tuesday-and asked for a-grant of £300 towards the cost of building a bridge over the Yarriam biac Creek, north of Beulali, did not ...receive much encouragement. JJr. . Ha'gelthorri recognised the good work that was being done by mallee shires, and said they were en* • titled to generous consideration by the Government. At the same time the Minister said there was no money available for grants of this kind, and the most.he could raise was £50, which he announced would be added to the shire's road grant of £100, Appreciation of the work being done by the shire is all very well in: its way, but in the absence of practical assistance, is likely to be discounted. Of the mallee shires, Karkarooc has been most progressive, and has car ried out some important undertake iags, wi...

SCATTERED RAINFALL. Some good falls of rain occurred on Tuesday ill the north-eastern districts of Victoria. Yackandandah had over 2 inches, Wodonga 172 points, Tallan gatta 133, and ChUtern 100. Showers fell at isolated places practically all over the State, but the records were only light. Sea Lake had 14 points, and Natimult 31. .
