DAMAGED BY WIND.
The heavy winds two or three weeks ago, siys the Oamaru Mail, did more damage in anme districts than was imagined. In the Totara district a crop of barley, half of which was oat before the nor'-westers came on, ran thirty-nine bushels to the acre over the portion cut early, while after the winds tbe balance only returned twenty bushel*. The ears were not shaken clean but broken right off. Many farmers who ore now thcenlung find that their returns are hardly S3 high as tney anticipated.
