Mr D. Thomas (late of Mataon, Cox, and Oo.) reports upon the live stock market for the week ending Oat. 80th, as follows :— On Tuesday at the ABhbarton Yards I held my Dsaal weekly Hale of sheep, cattle, md pif?e. The total entry for the day comprifgd 8876 sheep, 11 rams, 88 oattlo, and 2 pigs, pf whioh I sold 2098 sheep and 16 head of cattle. The attendance was below the average, no doubt owing to many farmers preparing for the Timaru chow and the very unpleasant nor'-wester that was blowing the whole of the day. The bidding was rather slack, and two or three lines were passed m unsold.
