Central Otago.

We are all rejoicing here, for we have got half-an-inch of rain this month, nearly all at once, and no wind to follow, so that the whole of it has gone into the ground. Ploughing and harrowing are now the order of the day, and a few farmers are getting in their wheat and oats. The turnips are nearly all done, ■and in a good many cases l stock has been railed to Southland to graze. The local A, and P. Society are going to build a hall, and to finance it are selling debentures. These are going off very freely, and I expect to see the building up before next show. The Farmers’ Union had a meeting in Williams’ Hall on Saturday night, when matters of vital interest to the farming community were discussed. The meeting w 7 as well-attended, and spirited discussion ensued on many matters, which shows that the branch is far from dead yet. Sickness has been very prevalent this year, and in consequence Dr. Rosa Collin has been kept very busy. I hear she is going to have a holiday, and that Dr Beaven is coming to relieve her. The Strath looks like a desert compared to former years, and people are feeding stock with straw and molasses. Straw is now getting very scarce.

There is hardly any snow on th© Rock and Pillar. Mr Wm. Mkthieson brought over a mob of sheep gust lately, and those that know the district will be surprised at that. August 12th.
