BALMA.TTUM. Sinco my last a nice fall o£ rain took placc, amounting to 35 points, Although light, under present drought conditions, it has freshened up crops, but unfortunately, only a small qrea benefited. Drought conditions still continue, time after time rain appears to be near at hand, but the wind veers round south, and all hopes o£ a beneficial fall are dispelled. At present conditions have reached a very acute stage. Should a fall occur at once wheat crops will have a hope of recovering, but oat crops are doomed, and manv are put ting stock on them, as they arc beyond redemption.
