PASTORAL RAINS Nullagine River Rising Fast Further good rains have fallen in the pastoral areas south wards from the De Grey. Our Nullagine correspondent re ported last night that since Saturday Three Rivers station had registered over three inches and that it was still raining. The Nullagine River, which had been running strongly and con tinuously since the end of De cember, was again rising fast with possible flood conditions developing overnight. The overland mail on the southward journey, due at Mundiwindi last evening, had not arrived and was probably weather-bound in the vicinity of ligalong mission station. Several motorists are stranded between Three Rivers and Peak Hill. Air'landing grounds be tween Port Hedland and Meekatharra are waterlogged. Principal rain registrations be tween 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. yes terday were: Nullagine, 130 points: Bonnie Downs, 80; Roy Hill, 85; Ethel Creek. 140; Mundiwindi, 50; Three Rivers, 70; Bryah, 150.
