AUCTION SALES. ♦ WIRRAL CATTLE MART. Mr. John P. Carter, auctioneer, of Chester, conducted his usual weekly sale at the Wirral Cattle Mart on Wednesday. The supply was rather short, owing no doubt to farmers being busy with their corn harvest, but it was satis- factory to notice the sharp demand that was met with and the high prices that were realised. BIRMINGHAM AUTUMNAL SHORTHORN SHOW AND SALE. The forty-second great central exhibition and sale will be held at Bingley Hall, Birmingham, on Thursday, September 23rd. As in former years there are four classes for females, viz., for cows and heifers exceeding three years old, heifers over two and not exceeding three, heifers between one and two, and heifer calves; with eight prizes ranging from 93 to X10. An addition of X10 has been made to the prizes in the class for bulls between 12 and 18 months old, the prizes now offered being JE15, 910, E7, E5, R3. The usual extra stock classes are con- tinued for animals of both sexes, no prizes being offered for these, and a lower entry fee charged, These exhibitions afford an excellent opportu- nity for the disposal of drafts or entire herds, where a home sale is not desirable. The entries close on Tuesday, August 31st, so early application for prize lists and entry forms should be made to the secretary, Mr. W. H. Lythall, Bingley Hall, Birmingham. MR. BOWEN-JONES' SALE -OF SHROPSHIRE SHEEP. This important event took place on Tuesday, the 17th inst., the sale being entrusted to Alfred Mansell and Co., of Shrewsbury. A large and influential company assembled, including all the principal English breeders; Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, was also largely represented. The sale opened briskly, the first five rams making respectively 100gs., 95gs 185gs., 84gs., and 67gs., averaging Elll 10s. 2d., and so good was the demand sustained that the first 15 rams averaged £ 55 each. The ewes sold moderately, making from 85s. downwards, a feature of the sale being the purchase of 35 ewes for Lord Kesteven, a new adherent- to this rent-paying breed of sheep. This concluded a most satis- factory sale, 41 rams averaging X27 ls., and 100 ewes JE3 4s. 3d.
