THE PAPER WITH THE LARGEST CIRCULATION. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS, WITH SUPPLEMENT. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6th, 1914. It is unfortunate that many of those who have undertaken the pioneering work of settlement in the new mallee country are experiencing the effects of a disappointing season.

The > position is all the more regrettable " when the arduous and self-sacrificing work of these settlers is .taken into ac count. Within -a comparatively short p...
