Directions to Applicants.

Applications for leases will be received up to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, the 16th January, 1895. Forms and maps may be obtained at the Land Office, Blenheim, and at the Land Offices throughout the colony.

The ballot for sections for which there are more than one applicant will be held on Thursday, the 17th, at 11 a.m.

No deposits are required with applications, but every successful applicant must be prepared to pay a half-year's rent and £1 1s. lease-fee immediately on his application being approved.

Selectors who may not find it convenient to appear personally at the ballot should appoint an agent to select for them, or they may send with their application a draft or post-office order in favour of the Receiver of Land Revenue for the first half-year's rent, which will be returned, less exchange, in case of non-success.

Should any applicant not pay the half-year's rent on being declared successful, then another ballot between the other applicants will be drawn forthwith.

Selectors who apply for more than they wish to occupy should indicate on each application the order of their choice, or inform their agent of it.
