The Rainfall. -'''I 1870—1908. We have received from a correspon dent a record showing the 'rainfall ' in the Bathurst district since 1870. From this our readers will be iu a position , to note the falling-off that has taken place since 1895. Prior to that date some of the records reached as high as 43 inches, many being over 30 in ches and the majority over 20 inches. Twice only the record fell below 17 in ches—these occasions being 1888 — 13.14 inches and 1895 — 16.95.

RABBIT TRAPPING.
