insula sheep, which border on the % bred and are large framed, well woolled and thick pelted, are always eargerly sought -after by all the farmers of the plains. - The ladies of the district put forth great efforts in running (luncheon and after-noon teas on behalf of the French Red Cross, and the attendants at the sale gave them right royal support.
