Bad as the times are, and in face of the desolating drought, people are beg nning to realize the va!ue. of the forest land hereabouts, not alone for orcharding but for cereals.

(To the E litor.) Sir,-I was pleased to see such a splendid letter in the "Age" concerning Portland, which has been blotted off the map, as it were, by all the trade going to Melbourne during the past litty years, and, as the 'Age" remarks, as trade has been passing through these channels' to Melbourne for so long it may be dillicult to divert it. But l am of. opinion this diversion to Portland will quickly take place if the following conditions (before mentioned by me) are, without wavering and with can ridence for Portland's future greatness, carried out.
