ASHBURTON STOCK MARKET.
There wa& a good attendance at the weekly stock sale held at the Tinwaid yards to-day, and the yarding of sheep ( "was the largest recorded tor some months past, the bulk of the entry be- : ing in tne stove pens. . The yarding of sheep in the fat pens was much bigger than that of last week, but the quality was not so good. There was a good demand, for fat ewes, and with the exception of three small lines, which were little better than stores, a good clearance was made. Although there was good competition for fat wethers, the prices asked were above the buyers' ideas of values, and three fairly larsze lines were, passed in by auction at 19s 6d, 20s 3d and 20s Bd. The bulk of the lambs yarded in the fat pens were below freezing buyers' weights, and 459 were passed in by auction. Prices were on a par Avith last week's rates. The details of the entry of fats are as follows, the numbers in parentheses being those for the last sale:—Ewes, 306 (335); wethers, 243 (63); lambs, 719 (61). There was a very large yarding of store sheep, including 1295 wethers, 2513 lambs, the balance being ewes. There was only fair competition, the entry being in excess of the demand. Of the yarding 3200 were passed in by auction. Prices were well up to market rates. The, yarding of store sheep totalled 7209, as against 6507 last week.'
