ABER NOTES. Our Heartiest- congratulations to Mr Comer Phillips, Garth Farm, who act at defiance all shepherds and farmers of the neighborhood by capturing the silver cup offered by Dr Ham 1 en- Williams, J.P., Fairfield, at the Sheep Dog Trial Match l:PJd at Eglwysilan on Thursday and Friday last. This is his greatest achieve- ment this season, although he has already se- cured nine prizes within the last few weeks, and as he has entered his invincible "Wag" at three other approaching matches, it is safe to predict that other prizes ate awaiting him. It wotdd interest some of his many friends to have these prizes remunerated, and we therefore publish IWme. At Ystrad Rhondda, on the 19th Sep- tember, he took 2nd by "Wag" and 3rd by "Rose" in the Novice Class; and further skarMl 2nd and 3rd in Open Class by "Wag." At Ely a week later he took 300 in Novice-Class by "Wag," while ak Eglwysilan he captured na leas than five prizes, the first being a silver cup, by "Wag," and 2nd by "Rose" in the District Champion Class. In the Open Class he t"k 3rd by "Rose," and in the Novice Class he se- cured 2nd by "Wag" and 5th by "Rose." If "Wag" has not wagged enough prizes to rest on his laurels we have no more to say. It ifi known, however, that he has retired through old age, Mid wiU now give the palm to "Rose," a bitch many years his junior. No better eido- gt can be paid Mr Phillips for his great labowr, than to know his thorough training of kis sbeep-d.gs has made his name dreaded by farmers and shepherd alike. Of course, "Wag" deserves a good share of the credit. He must be a very intelligent animal, and it goes wi-iiii- out saying that a profound understanding exists between him and his master. Many ofeher excellent trials were seen, but the dogs in many cases failed at the critical moment, and, when it is considered that the penning of these wild mountain sheep tod to be cempleted in It Minutes, their little carelessness may be easily pardoned them. We hope to publish more sue- 4IÐSSI}S ilit Mr Phillips's eaneer in the ueer flit-
