It was pointed out that the fence, which is abouit 500 miles ii- lengtn, was in firet-class order and cost about £1000 per year to look after, Whilst admitting that rabbits were inside the fence, it was urged that it was still of great service in keep: ing back a large number of rabbits which were following their leaders, in addition to which it was also in strumental in keeping out large mobs of dingoes.

CRASS PATCH A GOOD WHEAT YIELD. LAND IMPROVING WITH CUL TIVATION. Grass Patch. Jan. 25. A long spell of summer weather has just broken up, and a few days of coastal showers make a welcome change. It has been a very trying spell, especially for the women and children, and settlers look forward hopefully to the time when the train will run to the coast every day, bringing back a few comforts that are unprocurable at present. It has been great weather for harvesting the crops, and good use has been made of it, many having quite finished, while others are well forward. A much better average yield is being obtained this year, showing that the land is improving with cultivation, and as the mallee dies off. Yields run from eight to 17 bushels, several being in the neighbourhood of 14, and in nearly every case without fallow, so that with thorough cultivation there is every possibility of growing 20 bushel crops. What do the croak ers say? We understand that the State Wheat Committee has de...
