LIVE STOCK AIAUKET. BlESfns E, Matscx tv Co rrprM : — Wednesday There was an uveiage attendance »t the AdJington livestock market Wednesday ir. spite ot the dull and r<.iny weather. As re RttrdG the yarding of stock, there wass net t ny outstanding ohanpe noticeable from the mor Ifacent muikettt, the tntriee beirgnbout the same, with the po&i-iblo ixoeplion oi ihe fat andsiore sheep cln-see, which weie in decidedly l»rger numbem. fat lambs also were |Q better supply, Tbe yarding of atoro p[.e p nhcwfp n fairly, larße iDoreasa, oom artd with recent Bales, end as usual at this poriod of the year, consisted very largely of two kotls, the balance' being made up principally of ewes and larnbfl Onoe again competition was keen, nnd al good olearanoe was made at prices on a par with those ruling a week earlier. Quotations were—Four tooth wethers 14s 3d to ] 5-j 8d; two and four loolh wethers 13a 7d to 17h Id ; mtdium twoiojth wethers 10i iSJ tolls; good two tooth wethers lo 15a 8d ; two tooth wettere 13a Id to 17s 8d; six and eight tooth halfbred wethers 183; six and eight tooth woolly ewee, with lambu, lGs sd; aged ewes with Jamba 7s 10d ; six and eight tooth ewes Ut 7<J; four and six tooth ewea Ida 10d. There were 715 fat lambs in Ihe pens, as compared with 528 at the previous wcek'e Bale. Thn quality was inclined to be rather nnevon, and there wns a fair proportion of medium and uhfini6htd lambs offered. Last week a drop of about 2s per head had to be chronicled, nnd the snle Wednesday opened nt about last week's rates. The supply of lambs was rather more Iban equal to the demand, as the butchers only wtre operating, and a further elurop resulted as the sale progressed, lambs going down quite !■ per head on even last week's price*. The range of piices was:—Best lambs 1C? 4d to ]oe, lighter 14* 9d to IC*.
Ihe entiy of fat shetp showed an increase over last week's rnaiktt, ewes and with'rs both being well represented, There were practically no woolly sheep in tire section at the sale, and ihe quality of the bu k of he pens was good.
