Merino, T'he herdsman-Mr M'Phee-informs us that water Is very scarce within his boundaries. A stretch of about 7 miles from the old Tahnira homestead to M:'t[llen'n farm, through roads with itburdance- of feed, but not a. drop of water, is a case in evidence. The same may be said of roads between Merino and Struan, where there used to be what -Here thought permanent springs, but all these are now dry, and the revenue from the common will suffer considerably, as stook owners are withdrawing their stock on account of the water scarcity. It is suggested that the Couuecil would find it m nsuch to the advantage of the municipal -lty to have a few places scooped out along these roads in spin spring time. There are various methods of conserving water and some of these should be adopted, as the.lanes a little way out of the town ship have still luxuriant feed on them. This is in some respects a drawback, as the dry grass makes the roads useless as firebrakes in the event of an outbreak of S...
