As a matter of fact, there Is a red stripe, too, but this is ingignifirg?t being but half an inch wide; the blue Is two inches wide. These, according, to jute merchants, are distinguishing marts for different the bine stripe Is on the mere widely used loose-top pack, and the red on the fixed top type. At the last meeting of the Wool growers' Council in Brisbane, said the secretary of the Stockowners' Associa tion (Mr. E. D. H.

Scott) on* Saturday, ?This, with 60 acres In the Adelaide hills, brings the total area in this State to 90 acres." Although the summer had been cool, it was not wet enough for the Ade laide hills, and the crop was not par ticularly favorable, he added. Tobacco required a regular summer rainfall. The normal yield was 5 to 6 cwt. of cured leaf to the acne, but this eeason it would average about 4 cwt. Har vesting was proceeding now, and would continue until April. "Tobacco is a crop that brines in quick returns, and, properly handled, is a payable proposition," Mr. Scott said.

All mid-week racing in New- South Wales is to be abolished by the Government, and race meetings, both horse and pony, will be confined to Saturdays and holidays.

AUSTRALIAN FARMER CURED PSYCHICALLY Treated from Berlin LISTENED TO RECORD AND GAZED ON PORTRAIT BERLIN, February 28. A sensation has been caused in psychic circles by the announcement of a veritable Svengali, named Dr. Leo Thoma. who put a man in a trance from a distance of 12,000 miles by means of a gramophone record. Dr. Thoma, an hynotic expert, was asked by an Australian colleague to help with the treatment of an Austra lian farmer suffering from acute melancholia. Dr. Thoma conceived the idea of recording words on the record, which were said as if the fanner had been in a Berlin consulting room. Five records were made and destroyed before Dr. Thoma was satisfied that the modulation and resonance of the voice had been properly reproduced. He sent the record, with a life-sized portrait of himself, to Australia, and the patient was instructed to gaze upon tne tyes of tne portrait and persuade himself that he was listening to Dr. Thoma's actual voice.
