BROOKTON, Jan. 30.-The hottest day for the season was registered here on January 27. when the thermometer reached 105 de grees in parts of the district.-The bulk wheat bin here closed on January 24 with approximately 90.000 bushels received. This isl between 4.000 and 5.000 bushels less than last year. but is regarded as very satisfac tory considering a much' smaller area was cropped and more hay than usual was cut. Mr. C. Yeo has lost 105 sheep during the past week. and other farmers have suffered in a smaller way. Toxic paralysis is believed to have been the cause of death and many farmers are innoculating against that disease. -Fruit is very scarce this year. owing to the dryness, and the Socks of birds that are un usually plentiful, having come in from the dryer areas.
