Saturday 14 July 1900, The Sydney Morning Herald

WARIALDA, Friday.

An auction sale of an improvement lease on the Gragin holding caused keen competition at the lands office to-day. The term was 28 years at an upset annual rental of £10. It was knocked down at £56 per annum. The same lease nine months ago failed to secure a bid. There is a great demand for land in this locality, and values are increasing, Herbage is plentiful and stock are fat.
