For the village small-farm allotments opened for selection at the Crown Lands Office to - day only twenty - nine applications were received, covering eleven sections, The land offered, however, contained no new country, being made up of sections that have been open for a number of years, but which have now been brought under the provisions of the Amendment Act of 1887, giving the selector choice of tenure. Three informal applications were also received, and in this connection we have been asked to draw the attention of selectors to the necessity of reading the instructions issued with the particulars of land open, and obtaining the proper forms from the Land Office, an impression appearing to prevail at present that anything in the shape of a declaration will do, whereas the Act is very stringent on the subject; and if applicants will not take the trouble to read the directions, they have only themselves to blame if their applications are thrown out. The following list gives particulars of land applied for: — HUNGER DISTRICT. Sections 50 and 51, block 8, 13a ; cash price 30s per acre. John Mailer, cash. GLENOMARO DISTRICT. Sections 33 and 43, block 2, 54a 3r 19p; cash price 20s per acre. Jane Abernethy, cash. Sections 44 and 45, block 2, 37a 3r 3p; cash price 20i per acre. Mitchell Abernethy, perpetual lease.
