Mies Stirling, " oolonel "m the Salvation Army m Switzerland, has been sentenced at Orbe to 100 days' imprisonment for continuing to make proselytes of minors m despite of the Swiss regulations against it. A writer from the.Broken hill district myn that district beats anything he ever saw or heard of for dust. On a recent Sunday he and a friend were out driving and the horse fell and was literally buried m the dust of the road. Water is so soaroe there that even the first-class hotels charge half-a-crown for g bath, and it is ■ometimes Becond-hand at that. Referring to the crops m the Taieri district the " Advocate " says :— •• We are afraid that the harvest next season will be a very late one. As for the potatoes, the recent frosts have given them such a shook that it is bard to predict whether there will be a crop or not. In the vioinity of Moßgiel they prosent a very black and withered appearance."
