The situation as to seeding is getting
serious. For quite a series of years we
have had comparatively early springs,
and *the farmers have bad ample. time in
which to sow their grain, almost ait their
own leisure. This year things are very
different. The cold weather continued
until very late, floods have soaked the
soil and as yet very little wheat has been
sown in the county. Just what propor
tion of the whole hdwever, is difficult to
say, becaus ot the varying cohditions in
the different localities,^and indeed on the
same farm. Probably a majority of the
farmers in the county barely commenced
seeding last Monday, and if some, did
start sooner there are mauy who have
not yet begun.
AH this would not be a^ serious but for
!Ee fact onJjVednesday it began to rain
on the already water-soaked ground
and yesterday it continued without any
1 signs of stopping.

The Taps seems to be going right

gram and when any Russians attempt to
interfere they simply brush them back
wards. It is really remarkable to see
the almost uniform success that they
have had so far. Even luck has been
on their side. All the accidents—and
there have been many serious ones—
have invariably occurred to the Russ
ians. It must be remembered however
that as the Japs push the Russians farth
er backward that they are pushing them
nearer their base of supplias, while on
the other hand the Japs are getting
farther and farther from home. This: is
likely to make some difference in results
in the future, and" the Russians claim
that is their object, ancl when they get
them far enough a way. so that the Japs
cannot retreat, they expect to defeat find

Midland is assessed 91,000 and Drayton
