The January rainfall map present ed some very marked contrasts. Lit tle or no ram fell over the agricul tural districts and the Coolgardie goldfields, the only gaugings for the month resulting from occasional light thunderstorms. In. consequence, a general defect was measured over these areas, and was also shared to a lesser extent by parts of the Mur chison, but over the northern and western portions and throughout the Gascoyne, this defect was replaced by an excess which ranged from a few points to 1.71 in. at Peak RHill. Further northward the monthly to tals increased by leaps and bounds, and reached a maximum at Derby and Broome, where the phenomenal fa'ls of 31.63 (24.29 in. above normal) and 32.56 .in.

THE BALKANS CAMPAIGN. While the great war waits on the western front for the spring-time which will make artillery mobile on the wet fat? of France and Flan demr, hostilities are actively pro-! grossing " on th? Russian side. There is no doubt of the strength and staying power cf the Muscovite giant; but he is very slow and! cumbrous in bringing that strengsh' into action.
