Ho said : — ' The arrangement proposed now between Folkestone nnn Boulogne is an extension of what is called tho 'coherer system,' which has been elaborated by Signor Marconi.

N.W. FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. Tho North Western Farmers' Associa tion Limited, Devonport, report for week ending Friday, March 17, as follows : Potatoes: Deliveries have. again been very heavy and in spite of every effort to nlaco narcels in various directions supply has now fairly overtaken demand and we must look forward to low prices until growers become more moderate in their deliveries. At present, and in fact until planting commences in Queensland, we see no advantageous outlet for more than 15,000 sacks, while present deliveries aro equal to at least 20,000 weekly. The smaller quantity would assuredly gross more, and as tho season opened so early, good as tho crop is, wo would not be likely to have much left by the end of August with a steady weekly export of 15,000 sacks. Turnips : The market is steadily taking the quantity now coming forward, and with moderate deliveries is likely to hold firm. We would advise growers to evenly distribute their surplus over the next 10 weeks. ...
