A WHEAT PEST. Not a few of the farmers In Eas tern Riverina are inclined to ascribe the absence of grain from a great deal of the heads of wheat this season to the presence of a microscopic fly, which was noticed to he very preva lent in October and part of Novem ber. This fly, at about that time, was extremely active in kitchen gardens. In many cases it attacked beans, peas, lettuce, and other plants with deadly effect. The fly is much smaller than the Rutherglen fly, and may escape no tice, excepting when the -sunlight is on it At the. time it was attacking gardens, the tiny insect was noticed to be always hovering about the wheat, just when it was flowering. For some reason, "which has not been clearly defined, farmers found when harvesting that many of the heads which seemed to be fully developed and well grown, contained no grain, excepting near the stalk. These flies were present in myriads at flowering time, and some of the farmers have come to the conclusion that they were i...

SOUTH AFRICAN UPHEAVAL UNION PARLIAMENT MEETS. LABOR MEMBERS ABSENT. CAPE TOWN. Friday Nlcht. In view of the developments arising out of the recent strike, keen interest was evinced in the opening of the Union Parliament to-day. The speech of the Governor-General, Lord Glad* stone, was on the whole non-commit tal. It was noticeable that the Labor members were absent en bloc. The speech showed that the session was likely to be a short one. References were made to the prevailing unrest, and to the fact that the extension of the strike made the Minister con sider.. that martial law was justified. Certain, measures would be presented to Parliament to confirm the action taken by Ministers. Mr. J. C. Smuts, Minister of De i fence, notified his intention to move I Tor a bill to indemnify Ministers for their actions during the strike. •Mr. Creswell, one of the members who came into conflict with the Go* vernment, had a series of warm ex« changes with the Ministry.
