STOCK 9 STATION REPORT, CHAMPION Offico, Monday, 10 p. "THE weather this weekhas been most intensely liot, and worse iu degree than anything ex perienced during the middle of summer. A reference to our thermometrical readings will show that on Wednesday and Sunday last the mercury reached 102 degrees, while the average maximum temperature was 98 degrees.

I shall make something by my grapes, and vegetables, and fruit generally, next summer, I hope. The door being pushed open at this mo ment, a very lovely boy of about five years came timidly in, and looked shyly at the stranger. " Come, Bertie," said Mrs. Saltring.

Tin- appearance of the stuff through which the drill is passing is healthy for near supply of water ; but if lie dons not get it at the 2000ft., Mr. llrown will abandon the work. Having to bore so deep in the desert country looks as if the theory of one shallow basin under the whole sandstone country is about as erroneous as any of the others.
