Sir,-I crave the space of a few lines in the columns of your journal re the holding of a patriotic race meeting, and trust that the matter will be taken up by more forceful action on the part of the general public; as everyone who reads the papers is aware that most of the country centres of New South Wales have followed the example set by the A.J.C. and held a patriotic race meeting, in most cases receiving a far greater measure of support and success than usually attends an or dinary meeting. I am strongly of the opinion if Queanbeyan, supported by the surrounding districts, should move in the matter and hold a meet ing, say on the Prince of Wales' Birthday, that it would prove a great success.

To make the meeting more popular a ...

Never before have we had such an unbroken spell of cold, westerly, cloudy weather in May, and the rainfall has been bare: ly sufficient. We are likely to have better growing weather in June.

There is planty- of water for all pur. poses if it were conserved, and more is spent in labor and money in dry (scbsons than would provide an ample supply.
