WARRAH FARMS.

Thirty-two blocks were, therefore, only allotted. Thie cause of the lion-success of the ballot is attributed to the fact that the areas of the farms wore all too small in the majority, if not In all, cases, and the price of the land was too high for the areas of the farms, also no suitable means of access is provided to the railway.
