SHEPPARTON EAST. The continued dry spell has left the farmers in this district in some perplexity as to the .ad visability of sowing or otherwise. The patchy showers of about a 'ortiught ago have left a. little moisture in the soil, that while not'enough to carry a crop along over a dry-spell, is yet enough lo cause it to germinate and per haps wither away. Still I think seeding will be genera! through out th& district after Easter. Mr F. A. Gronk has disposed | of his property at Shepparton East to Sir J. Slaltery, of the Vic toria Hotel,-Shepparton. Mr. ICronk's connection with the dis trict and its institutions, has I been a long one, and his dis posal of his interests in it is yet' anothea snapping of the lies that I bound us to the original settlers. : -lnviharked contrast to the. dry paddocks of the farnis are the bright green appearance of the lucerne on the small holdings.
