THE. CALL! You have read the cables, Oh, com rade mine, And you shake your head with a sorrowing sigh. Will you fill the gap in the far flung line, With the will of the, man to do Sor die?

COIMADAI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A fine soaking rain has fallen dur ing the week, and 'up to time of writing 186 points have been re corded.

Messrs. William and James Johansen are the latest volunteers, and are to be commended. If successful in pass ing the final test, and getting away, they will carry with them the feel ings of pride of a large number of friends.

THE Age is making desperate efforts to regain its lost position as a poli tical fdrce by advocating the form ation of a coalition Federal -Minis try. There is nothing to be gained by this, as legislative action de pends upon two Houses, which can not coalesce, except by mutual good sense. We shall not get that in Federal politics until the Parlia ment is removed to Canberra, and then some years must elapse to create a Federal spirit.' Rainfall for week, 9 points. The crops are coming on splendidly, growing well, but the grass is still very slow in its growth.

ADULTERATED CHAFF. To the Editor of the Express. Dear Sir,-A letter in your col umns, headed "Adulterated Chaff," under the nom-de-plume of "Legiti .mate" makes a number of very sweeping assertions, and practically states that the two chaff mills work-, ing at Melton are guilty of very heavy offences under the Chaff and Stock Food Act. As a rule, we take no notice of letters written anony niously, but in this case we have had so many people point out to us that they are surprised at our adul terating chaff, that we are obliged to take the matter up in order to protect our good name. Your cor respondent may, or may not, be aware that there are only two mills in Melton, one of which has been for several years "run by ourselves. We declare positively that during the years we have done chaff cutting in Melton we have never yet mixed any straw, inferior chaff, or rubbish of any description with the hay we have cut. We have always main tained a standard of purity in con nection with our c...
