ADVICE TO SUEEP FARMERS. (By Telegraph'.—PrMs Association.) NAPIER, Tuesday. A Napier firm has received the followin" report from their London agents in reference to the wool entered for the January sales:—"The market for all well-bred, good-conditioned wools suitable ior America is very strong, but Bradford is lagging very much behind, and if anything ordinary poor class New Zealand crossbreds are barely holding their own. This is partly accounted for by the fact that small farmers in New Zealand, witli clips of, say, from five to twenty bales, are not taking sufficient trouble about the breed of their sheep and skirting of the wool. The new clip is, for the most part, in good condition, well grown, and, generally bright in appearance. It is most important that clips to which the above description refers should be as free as possible from all skirty matter. It can be readily understood that the presence of such may often prevent American competition and mean a difference of 2d. to 2id. per lb. in the price realised."
