WILD BUSH. A large area has been sown in turnips this! season, and the crops promise to be gbod. Ail the available juveniles are busy thinning. The grass yield has been very g-ood, and the greater part or it is in st ook.
Oats arc doing well. The crop promises well, and the corn is'fillingout very fine.
The blight has not made its appearance, an'd although the crops promise wefl it is thought that the prices will run fairly high, for it must be. remembered that the North I,slant! crops are a failure, and they will draw on Southland for supplies. The Gu mini os Bush dairy factory is having a busy time, and all the farmers are going in extensively for dairying! The price given for butter fat is Is per lb, which loaves a very good return. Sawmillers arc hard at again in the Longwood, and a new mill is being erected by Messrs Bradley &- Moss, who have secured an extensive bush arco. Moore and Sons have nearly completed the tramway, from the bush to Longwood station, and intend to bring in the timber per locomotive. I also hear that another firm is contemplating a tram on similar lines.
