The seed of wheat crop is nermiuatinn, but the \rainfall is rather insufficient to bring the shoots through the sur face and unless it is soon followed l>y another fall, serious damage will ensue. A narrow escape from serious in jury occurred last week. Whilst Mr J. McDonnell, of l'atho, was driving a horse and bunny, the horse.suddenly shied, and Mr Mc Donnell was thrown out. The horse bolted and smashed the bn.n'jty to pieces. Fortunately Mr McDon nell was unhurt.
