In the Novala Zhizh, of which Gorky Is the editor, he prints Rizow's secret-dispatch, with concrete poace proposals, and although ho himself Is an almost fanatical advocate of peace, denounces Rizow. RizOw begins by proclaiming that already In January ho had approached the Russian ministers at Stockholm and Chrlstiania with a proposal %o conclude Van honornblo peace" between Russia-and her foes, but he received a robuff. Immediately after the revolution Rizow renewed his attempt with-the Russian minister at ChrlstiaiiR aiid obtained through the minister a reply from Professor Paul Mllukoff, then the foreign minister, that there could bo no question of a separate peace.

While it was not apparent that tho crops were needing moisture-badly, investigations showed that the supply readily available was fast being depleted. The steady gentle rain has soaked into the ground, very little being lost by surface drainage. Warm weather to follow this will see crops grow by leaps and bounds. Some flax yet remains to be seeded and will, to a certain extent, be delayed by the rains. TRAVERS Travers, June .11.-Another soaking rain came Thursday afternoon through the whole of the Sweet Valley district. In town the rain only laid the dust.
