7.—Rural Lands outside Hundreds to he sold at the fixed price of 10s. per acre.
In Districts outside Hundreds which may be proclaimed or notified as open for sale, the intending purchaser must pay to the Commissioner of Crown Lands (or other officer appointed in that behalf), in cash or scrip, the price of any section or sections of land (generally not to be less than forty acres in extent), which he may desire to select; the price for all lands so selected being at the rate of Ten Shillings per acre. A surveyor will then be sent who will lay off the section or sections which may have been chosen, and will put the purchaser in possession of the same.
