DUVERNEY. From our Correspondent. The farmers around here have erected their own post office. The telephone is to be put on immediately, the exchange board having been given by the depart ment, and a number of farmers are getting the 'phone on to their residences, which will be a great convenience for them. The crops in this corner of the district never looked better, and the prospects of a record harvest are very good. The Railway department has erected three new buildings at the railway station—a station office, ladies' waiting room, and a lamp room. The station has now been brought up to date. The road through Strathvean estate has now been thrown open to the public. It was surveyed last week, and the fencing of it in is to be proceeded with imme diately.
