It was generally very light, the oold weather having prevented the " yolk " rising. Some clips were of good bright color, bat there was more than th* usual proportion of badly colored, or •' dingy," lots It was as a rule fairly weligrown and sound of staple, though some of the lots shewed elgns of a receipt check. There waa very little .Improvement In the " get-up " of the wool, bat it was satisfactory to notice that attention m this rsspeot was m most Instances repaid by , the additional competition of buyers. For badly got up lota thero was no bidding by speculative buyers.
