Sutton, State Wheat Ex perimentalist, and two other officers yet to bo selected will represent the Depart ment of Agriculture. There is also an invitation for three practical farmers to represent the State, but the difficulty appears to be that men who would most fittingly do so may be unablo to spare the time or are not disposed to go to the expense of the the trip. The farmers, who do go will have to defray their own expenses, though there will be a conces sion iu fares if a party of six is made up.

Correspondence. To the Editor. THE LATE MRS. T. BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 1 February 1911
Correspondence. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor. THE LATE MRS. T. BROWN. Dear Sir,—My attention has been drawn to a footnote of yours to the obituary paragraph which appears in the issue of your journal of the 25th instant relating to the death of Mrs. T. Brown, of Young. The footnote refers to Mrs. T. Brown as being a daughter of Mrs. Alex. Frazer, of Cowra, etc. This, I desire to say is an error. The deceased lady (Mrs T. Brown) prior to her marriage to Mr. Thomas Brown, was Miss Sarah Jacobs, of Cowra, consequently a sister to Mrs. P. Robinson and Mrs. C. Whittaker, of Cowra. Apparently you have confused the late Mrs. T. Brown with Mrs. F. A. Brown, a daughter of Mrs. Alex. Frazer, of Cowra. The late Mrs. T. Brown and Mrs. F. A. Brown, when married, were very close friends, and came from Cowra to Young together. Sub- sequently they married Messrs. T. W. and F. A. Brown respectively. I shall be glad if you will make the corr...

WHEN JULIUS LANDED. Nearly twenty centuries havo passed j si hob tho Romans landed for tlie ' first time in Britain. It was in 55 B.C. I that the expedition of Julius Caesar sail- \ od from Portus Hins, which is believed to j havo boen between Boulogne and Calais, and, after a. passage of about ten hours, arrived 011 the coast of Britain near Do ver, and beheld tho cliffs of Kent thickly fringed with armed Britons, who were evidently prepared to dispute his landing. For somo time ho hovered about the South Foreland, and then, favoured by j wind and tade, sailed northward to tho ' flat beach which oxtends from Walmer Castle' to Sandwich, and presented less. difficulty for dise-ambarking. Hero again the Britons thickly lined . tho beach, and the galleys drew too much water to permit the invaders to laud at j oneo on tho beach, and tho soldiers liesi- \ tated in momentary confusion. "Follow i me, comrades," exclaimed the standard bearor, "if you would not see tho eagle 111 tho hands of...

The gaol presents lit Uo to indicate that it is a placo of confine ment, there being apparently nothing be tween. tho prisoners and absolute liberty. There are no outer prison walls, and in the cells, the men-about ten to each-are as contentedly and comfortably housed as.their own personal domestic belongings can mako them . Moreover, they aro gen erously fed, and cigarottes without stint, wine occasionally, and no work at all, conibino to check any desire to escape moro effectually than would strong walls, iron bars, and an ariny ol warders.
