Mr D.Thomas (late of Mason, Cox, and Co.) reports upon the Live Stock Market for Ashburton District for the week ending Sept. 17th, as follows: —

On Tuesday at the Ashburton Yards I held my usual weekly sa c of sheep, cattle, and pigs. There was a total entry for th ; day of 3463 sheep, 27 cattle, and 11 pigs, of which I sold 1289 sheep, 1 heifer, aad 8 pigs. Tho attendance was a moderate one, and although prices improved for ewes and lambs and ewes m lamb, auctioneers had a very uphill time of it, as tbe bidding was very slo.v, and the 1 time taken up for the sale was quite out of proportion to the amount of stock sold. The following were the prices realised: — Fat merino ' ewes, 7s 2d ; merino wethers, xos 4d ; crossbred ewes, 12s 6dto 13s ; m stores crosbred hoggets, 9s to us 2d ; crossbred ewes, with good percentage ot lambs, 12s 3d, 12s 4d, to 13s ; merino ewes m lamb, 45 66, 5s gd, to 6s j crossbred two-tooth ewes and wethers, 10s 6d. Iv Cattle— Fat heifers, j£B 7s 6d. Pigs equal to late rates. On Friday I held my usual sale of sheep skins, when I had a total entry of 293, which sold as follows : — Best crossbred, 5s 3d, 5s 6d, to 6s ; medium, 4s 2d, 4s 6d, 4s iod ; small and interior, 2s 6d to 3s 3d ; best merino, 4s Sd, 4s 7d, to 5s 3d ; medium and inferior, 2s Sd, 2s 6d, to 3s 6d.
