TOO MUCH LAND. The question is often asked why farmers in good agricultural districts are not better off than they are? A Victorian writer revives the matter, and his remarks apply to the North-West Coast just as well as to his own colony. ' There may be,' he states, 'several reasons to' account for the financial difficulties which many of these men ha\e to face, but one of the principal causes of trouble is the desire to become possessed of large blocks of land.
