Snake Island Lands. With the object of assisting small holders in the drought stricken area, the Lands depart ment is making arrangements for the agistment of a limited number of cattle on Snake Island, off Welshpool, SouthGippsland. This island has for some time past been devoted to the agistment of dry stock owned by the settlers on the mainland near by. It is | now found that there is room for seme additional stock, and the Minister for Lands (Mr Lawson) has decided to flimit its further use to small holders on the dry areas. Applicants for these lands must indicate the number of stock owned and the number for which grass is required. The owners will have to pay the ordinary charge of 6d per head per week and take all risk. The cattle must cross from the mainland at low tide, at which time they can wade across the narrow passage to the island. As the available grazing is limited, applications should be investigated and appli cants informed as to the decision arrived at. Mr A. E. ...

The Minister for Public Works (Mr Hagelthorn) held a confer ence on Saturday morning with the chairman of the Water Com mission (Mr Mead), the director of Agriculture (Dr Cameron), the Secretary for Lands (Mr Reed), and Mr J. Gray, M.L.A., when suggestions for relieving the dis tress of ^settlers on the Mallee were considered. As a result of the conference four officers were sent on. Tuesday morning to the Mallee, and reports will be at once supplied as to what measures of relief are likely to be most effective, especially in the dis tricts between Cuyen and Pinaroo, from which many stories of very great distress have reached Ministers. Owing to the failure of this year's crop the farmers are not able to obtain credit from the district traders. Their crops were very light last year, and as a consequence they have no fodder for stock. They are afraid that their horses will die before relief arrives, and without teams the settle...

Hargreaves forwards the following . prophecy. . which sh found in a scrap-book at Welling ton, N.Z., in 1909 r— . German Empire Ends. " Five, years more and the Ger man Empire will come to an end So at least says a prophecy made in the 13th century by a man named Hermanu, who died in the^_ monastery of Lechnin, in Branden burg, where he wrote a work in Latin concerning the future destiny ... of Germany for many centuries. The work is styled the ' Vatici niutn Lechninse,' and it is in verses after the manner of the Sybilline book*. The monk seems to have foretold the defeat at Jena, and the constitution if the-Ger manic Confederation in 1818. The . prophetic Hermann foretills" in plain language the downfall of the Hohenzolleru dynasty, and Wi^ liam II. is destined to be the last of his race to sit on the Imperial throue.
