INVERCARGILL HORSE MARKET.
Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report that on Saturday last they held their weekly sale in the Prince of Wales Yards. The entry of about 40 horses was for the greater part composed of aged and inferior draughts and old weedy hacks, and probably a dozen good serviceable draughts and upstanding harness horses. For the better class of working horses as also for reliable harness sorts there was competition, but the inferior sorts were practically unsaleable. Prices : —Draught mares and 'geldings (sound and young), £35 to £45 ; aged active sorts, £3O to £2O ; old and stiff, £ls downwards. Hacks and light harness horses : One upstanding 6-year-ol'd gelding, a good mover brought £2O 10s ; another 4-year-old cob, £lB 10s. Both the above were sold on account of Mr G. Robertson, Alexandra. Another strong, upstanding 4-year-old mare brought £is, weedy and ordinary sorts £lO downwards.
