(From Our Own Correspondent.) The beautiful weather of the past fort night broke up on Tuesday and we have had a very steady downpour of mild rain. The farmers have been getting on well ■with the sowing of their winter wheat, which is now nearly all in, but the rain would stop sowing operations for some time. I notice several paddocks of winter wheat now just showing through the ground and also several paddocks of early oatf, which are looking very well indeed. During the past fortnight th 9 far. stock buyers have been very busy inthi3 district. Mr J. H. Muirhead has taken about 6,000 fat lambs and skeep to the Fairfield Works, and Messrs Nicoll Bros., have sent forward to Islington about 8,000 fat lambs and sheep.
