THF SOUDAN CAMPAIGN. The New South Wales Force* Preparations for Departure. The arrangements for the despatch of th.e New South Wales expedition to the Soudan were commenced in earnest on Monday morning, when the news of the acceptance of the offer of Governnient iirst reached the public.

PROPOSED BAND CONTEST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 21 February 1885
PROPOSED BAND CONTEST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWBAL FKEE PRESS. Sir,—Kindly allow me a short space in your valuable paper to make a suggestion. The Moss Yale Show will be opened iu March next. Would it not be advisable to offer a prize (to be acquired by public subscription) for a band contest between the Moss Yale, Bowral, Mittagong, Bundanoon, Berrima, and Burrawang (if still in existence) Bands, headed by their different leaders or band masters ? This will be entirely novel to the district, and ought to prove very attractive, because everybody would go and see or hear the decision; the contest to last either the tw'd Or three days while the show is opened; I1 will now1 leave this matter in'the hands of the committee and trust that they1 will en deavour if possible to forward this snggos- . tion, as it'will -materially advance the ftmds \ rif the soeietv. Yours, &c., MUSIC.

Small Friiils. A, correspondent o! the -Netf English Farmer, writes th'Us sensibly and practically The fanner should set apart a small piece of laud especially for growing smp.lli'ruits for family use, because it will be a luxury he can'well afford. He lifts the land, and it will be used for a good purpose if he set's out a strawberry bed and devotes a plot to raspberries, and also sets out sbm'e gooseberries ; of course,' the currant will find a place oh every farm without my urging-its claims.- Grape vines are'ne glected' by far too many farmers. There are now to gieat a number of varieties, that it would seem that one could find' some that would thrive in his dwn locality, and therefore, the fanner is neglecting si duty that he owes his family, if he fails to set a few vi'nes, and takes goqd cave of thern.

Sin) • " ''/^^jfiyV'att. Says in the Cootamundra Herald, a second -*.Jod occurred in Cootamundra and on the Salt Clay creek, during which we experienced a much heavier fall of rain within a given time than was the case at the first flood, which caused the wreck of the mail on Sunday night, the 25th ultimo. The heaviest fall during the first fall averaged about 31 points to the hour; whereas on Tuesday evening we had one inch and twenty-three points within twenty minutes. The time at Cootamundra as compared with that at Salt Clay creek shows a variation of a few minutes; but the deluge was seen from the town in the direct- tion of the creek—that is, to the west—fully five minutes before it reached here. During Monday and Tuesday up to 1.30 p.m there had been light rain in occasional falls, making in all 68 points ; but from 5.30 to 5-50 on Tuesday evening 123 points fell. To give an idea of the deluge, let the figures be com- pare i in the two floods: the first gave an average per ho...
