His back ached dread fully and at times he could hardly move the pain was so great. On one occasion he felt so ill'that he could not attend to his work and had to stay at home for days.

The Wheat Belt. PROSPECTS FOR THE SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 7 July 1916
The Wheat Belt. I PROSPECTS FOR THE. SEASON According to reports received by Mr A. E- V. Richardson, superin tendent of agriculture, the abun dant and well-distributed rainfall for June has materially improved the prospects for the wheat crop. Throughout the whole of the wheat belt of Australia the rains have baeu 40 to 50 per cant, higher than the average rainfall for June, and the regular incidence of the Antarctic depressions appears to presage another season of good winter rainfall. Owing to the extremely dry autumn, the subsoil had become depleted of moisture reserves. - The recent tains have been sufficient to penetrate the subsoil and provide a surplus above the immediate .re quirements of the crop. It has been shown that there is a definite relationship existing between the average wheat .yield of the State and the composite winter rainfall of the mallee, Wimmera and northern districts. A comparison of the winter rainfall at ten representative stations in the wheat belt with...
