' THIRD AT CHRISTCHURCH. ' ' Prices Rising. (Per Press Association.) CHRISTCHUECH, February 12. The third wool sale of this season',s series was held to-day, when there were offered 16,142 bales, including a large ■ number of North Canterbury, Bank's Peninsula, and Chatham Island clips. The wool was in remarkably good con- ' dition for this late 1 period of the season, though some of the latest shorn

clips were naturally burry. There was a large and representative attendance of j buyers, and in view of the rise in prices ■at' last Wellington sale it was expected that competition would be very keen.; This expectation was fully realised, the sale not only being the briskest of the season, but prices being on the highest level. Bradford buyers had evidently incrased their limits, but they were followed up very closely by Continental buyers, who bid freely for stronger wools such as Bradford buyers were after. Some business was also done on Amen-; can account. Not only were crossbred I wools much firmer, but fine wools also showed a slight advance.. Some of the reserves on the best clips Avere however beyond buyers' limits; and there were more passings of super halfbred wools in some of the large clips than in anyother descriptions. The passings, however, are not very large in' proportion to the sine of the catalogues.> Merino wool, of which there was a fairly large quantity offered, sold well, and was mostly taken by-Dunedin/and Wellington mills. Scouting. lots came, in for good competition, and local fellmongers secured a fair share. The following is the range of prices; compared with those realised at the January sale:—
