The weather was rather threatening during the past week. Though no great quantity of rain fell, the atmospheric conditions in Tralee district were not altogether favourable,  The bright sunshine of this day was an agreeable change.
Farmers require fine weather now to carry on the hay saving operations. A great deal of hay is cut down at present in every part of the country. We understand that Mr. R. D. Murphy, Auctioneer, Tralee, has disposed of the residential holding at Glenduff, near Tralee , for the trustees of  Mr. John Conway Hurly, at a large figure, to Mr. H. Walsh , solr., in trust;

INTERNET: GM wheat that may improve the quality of life for celiac patients has faced opposition from anti-GMO.  Norero then quotes from blog post by Jose Miguel Mulet, a Spanish plant scientist from CSIC:  “How can it be that a technology created with Spanish public funds end up in the hands of a private American company? Because of the aberrant anti-GMO European law. No European or Spanish company is interested in commercially developing this wheat due to obstacles in the authorization process…The result: licensing rights have been acquired by the…Dow Agrosciences, given that the authorization process in the United States is much easier.”
