i etage of Rain, 1.890 inch:s.

AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The rain that has fallen since the date of our last amounts to 3 inches 49 decimal parts. On the 5ih of the present month, the mountains were covered with snow, which sent the sheep to the low pastures. The storm was of short coutinuance. By the 9th the enow was inostly dissolved, and since the 10th there has been a slight frost; but the thermomcter has never stood below 30°. The mean temperature for the two last weeks in November was 409 93 decimal parts ; and for the two first weeks in the present month, 370, 47. Farm labours being far advanced before the rains in November, little has been performed since our last. The ground has been rather wet for carting out duns, and winter ploughing is for the most part over; little seed-furrow has as yet been turned over, it being considered rather early for that operation.

Cattle have been for the most part out at pasture previous to the 5th, which has proved a considerable saving to the fodder. In some of the winter markets, cattle have experienced a brisk sale. Horses brought very low prices. In the corn market there has been little alteration ; wheat of the best quality brings only about 20s., and barley sells at the same rate ; oats from 1 ts. to 15... ; beans and pease from lls. to 12s. per boll. The golden days of agricultural prosperity have come to a termination : -habits of luxury or of splendour, on the part of the farmer, must now be dispensed with. It will afford little matter of regret though the piano-forte should henceforth form no part of the farmci's household furniture, or though the over-fed brace of pointers should disappear from the kitchen yard. These are articles which, strictly speaking, belong to the upper classes of society, and when adopted by the mere farmer into bis establishment, they have been uniformly looked on, by his more frugal brethren, as the certain prognostics of sequestration, poinding, and disgrace.

While extravagance may be justly reprobated in any class, we suppose few would wish to see the British farmer exchange the modern broad-cloth vestments, the stuffed saddle, the polished boots, and gilded spurs, for the hodden gray, the cods of sackcloth, and the hoot-hose of the last century: an approximation to all this, however, is fast tak. ing place, and the shock, which will be first felt by the farmer, will, through him, roach the utmost corner of the land. Perthshire, December 14th 1922.
