Moun- tain and cross-bred were the kinds chiefly disposed of, and prices ranged from 7jd. to lOd. per lb. The chief buyers were Messrs. Davies Brothers, Vale of Towy Factory, Llanwrda, who bought about five tons. RExT AUDIT.âThe half-yearly rent of the Henllys Estate was held at the King's Head Hotel on Wed- nesday in last week. At the close the tenants were entertained to a. "recherche" dinner, prepared by Hostess Rees. Mr. D. W. E. Thomas, the landlord, and the young heir, were both present, and entered into pleasant conversation with their tenants. They seemed to greatly enjoy the postprandial proceed- ings, which were of the pleasantest kind, and spoke eloquently of the good relationship existing between landlord and tenants.
