AUSTRALIA'S WHEAT YIELD. RECORD HARVEST ESTIMATED. With the dawn of the New Year it Is usually possible to form a fairly accurate estimate of the total yield 5f wheat for the season throughout .he Commonwealth. The official figures ire not yet available in their entirety; aut, talcing the mean of the estimates ant forward by the statisticians of the Ufferent States and authorities in the iress, it appears probable that the to. ;al yeild for the Commonwealth will *e approximately 113 million bushels, vhich will establish a record, the laT rest previous harvest having been tbout 95 ^million -bushels lu 1911-12. "Jew South Wales put 900,000 more teres under crop in 1912-13 than were utftivated in v the previous year, and jxpects to secure in all a yield of near y 42 million bushels, being the largest vheat crop ever reaped in one Aus raliau State.
