Like other parts of the Dominion, Chorlton and Akaloa have been favour ed with the most beneficial rain that has fallen for a number of months It ia quite pleasing to tbe eye to view the growth of grass and revival of flowers and other plants, especially after the long period of parched, drought stricken pastures. More rain is needed to bring forth sufficient growth for autumn and winter feed
