    • KEEN COMPETITION FOR DRAINED LANDS.
      LAIDLEY, Mar. 16.-- The balance of the Tarampa Repurchased Estate was thrown open here to-day, and excited very keen competition. There were only twenty- four blocks available, for which there were nearly 300 applicants. For weeks past there has been a constant stream of people visiting the estate, the area thrown open to-day being what is known as the drained land. At a quarter past 4 o'clock this afternoon the doors were thrown open, and the ballot took a little over an hour. The great majority of the applications were priority, and in several cases the applications of married women were thrown out. The following are the results of the ballot :- Section A, parish of England, maximum area, 272 acres. Lot I.-- Portion 302, area 133a., total purchasing price £940, 32 priority applications. August Karl Niendorff, Tarampa Flat, accepted.

      It is notable that the first three selectors to secure blocks were mere youths, all natives of the district. The first ballot fell to August Karl Neuendorf, aged 20 years, whose application was for farm No. 302, value £940, the deposit paid being £95 14s. 6d. No. 303 (eleven applicants), 231 acres, was selected by the youngest of the three, Ernest Poklappa, aged 17. The price was £575, and the deposit £50 12s 10d.. Jens Lindie, aged 21, was the successful applicant for No. 301, area 57 acres, price £214; deposit £22 13s. 10d. Those may be taken as fair examples of the manner in which the youth of the farming population are concentrating their attention upon the land. In place of making farmers out of the " waste material" of other occupations Queensland is now growing them-- which augurs well for the future of the agricultural industry.
