The WAR. ACTIVITY ON WEST FRONT. VERDUN STANDS FAST. AUSTRIA.NS ROUTED. ' Attaining a pitch ot intensity and efficiency' hitherto unknown, the Allies' offensive now extends from the North Sea to the Roumanian frontier. Verdun still stands fast, and the struggle for the village of Fieury has had no definite result. Both Russians and Germans are bringing "up reinforcements to strengthen the attacks at Kovel. Berlin claims that General von Xinsingen has made a slight ad vance in the Lutsk region. • Austria'a retreat north of Asiago has become a'precipitous rout. The first of the fleet of mer chant vessels purchased by Mr Hughes will reach Australia for late August loading. Two very successful raids were carried out early on 1 uesday morn ing by the Anzacs, and were the outstanding inci^euts of a day of great activity on the whole front. The raids were carried out simul taneously three miles apart, and completely achieved the desired results. Both parties had extremely slight casualties...
The Northern Territory RICE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 30 June 1916
The Northern Territory RICE CULTIVATION. The Minister for External Affairs lias received an encouraging report from the Administrator of the Nor thern Territory relating to farming prospects in the vicinity of the Daly River;. Dr. Gilruth states that at the experimental farm at this locality horses and cattle are in excelieut condition, while crops of maize, ambercane, cow peas and rice are flourishing. One of the settlers has about 70 acres of rice uuder cultivation, and the crop is strong and well developed. As far as can be judged the grain is equal in quality, to the seed imported from the Java experimental farm. Dr. Gilruth says it is difficult to esti mate the. amount grown per acre, but it is believed it will not be less than 30 bushels. The rice sown was of three varieties, all of which have done well. The owner of this crop is said to be sanguine regarding the future, and expects to sell about ,£400 worth of produce from his farm this year. Considering it is only three year...

War Census Cards. PROSECUTIONS TO FOLLOW. A last opportunity to . comply with the law is to be given to those who failed to furnish replies to the war census cards. If this oppor tunity is not taken prosecutions will follow immediately. The Minister of Defence stated recently that the Commonwealth Statistician has now in his possession a return showing the names of those people who had failed to send in their cards. The Government was arranging that these people should receive another card, and they would then be given a certain number of davs in which to send their reply, which would have to be sent direct to the Com monwealth Statistician, instead of to the State War Council. Those who failed to do this after the required time would be prosecuted forthwith under the War Census Act.

WHAT'S TFIli REASON? There are scores of people wlio drag out a miserable existence without realising the cause of their suffering. Day after day they are r icked with backache and headache, suffer from nervousness, dizziness, t'/eakness, langour and depression, i'erhaps the kidneys have fallen 1 ehind in their work of filtering the Mood, and that may be the root of t le trouble. Look to your kidneys, assist them in their work, give them the help they need. You can use no more highly recommended icmedy than Doau's Backache Kidney Pills, endorsed by people all over the country. ^ Mrs J. Rowe, Duudas street, St. Arnaud, says:—"For over three years I was a martyr to backache. Sometimes I was much worse than others, but I was always conscious of the pain, even at the best of times. There was a dreadful cut tin^ aronv in the small of the back that also made itself felt in the shoulders and in the loins. At times it prevented me doing my work, and I would be prostrated.

Soldiers' Letters [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 30 June 1916
Soldiers' Letters The following letter has been received from Private A. Pickering, on active service in France, by Mr. G. L. Pickering, of Watchem : — Just a few lines to let you know I received your letter dated May 20, and was glad to know that you are all well, and that you had finished up with the harvest. I only hope this harvest proves as good, as 2/6 a bushel was not much of a price for the wheat. However, you may get more later on, as there was only a poor harvest in Europe, most of the men being in the firing line. I think the Kaiser has the women in the trenches now. This is the 20th May, and I suppose the boys are busy cropping. It is the middle of spring here, and every thing looks beautiful. By what I can see of farming here, we would call it gardening in Australia. They hoe the wheat with a little machine pushed by hand between the drills. The old men and women are at that caper now. They are working away on their farms within five miles of the front line of trenches ...
