SALE OF STOCK AT PYLE. MARKET MOOTED. Mr. T. J. Yorwertli held a sale of fat stock on Monday at Pyle, where it is proposed to establish a market. The sale proved a most successful one, a large number of buyers being present from Swansea. Neat/h, Bridg- end, Rhondda and the Garw Valley. Be- fore the commencement of the sale. the Auc- tioneer said that it rested with the farmers of the neighbourhood to make the sales a success, and he only asked them to send in their stock, when he felt certain that, owing to the convenience offered by the G.W.R. for their quick despatch, and the quality of the stock grown in that neighbourhood, butchers would surely attend. Mr. G. Lipscomb, who was greeted with applause, said he was most pleased to at- tend. and on behalf of Miss Talbot he wished the movement every success. He believed it would be a great boon to the farmers of the neighbourhood. He certainly thought that Mr. Yorwerth deserved a pat on the back for his pluck in starting auction sales there, and anything that Miss Talbot could do to help her tenants in this matter would be done. (Loud applause.) The Auctioneer then nroceeded with the 'sale, and in a short time disposed of nearly the whole of the lots. The entries com- prised cattle from Mr. T. D. Bevan, Mr. R. Thomas, The Hall; Mrs. Mordecai and Sons, Tythegstone. and others: sheep from Messrs. H. B. Matthews. W. Morgan (Sker), tJ. Thomas (Tydraw). A. M. Maddock. Mrs. Yor- werth (Kenfig). Cattle sold from JE13 to £19, or about 6^d. lb. fat lambs sold well, a pen from Mr. Matthews being sold for 45s. 6d. a head ewes made from 30s. to 40s.: porkers, 9s. 6d. to 10s. 6d. score; store cattle, £6 to £ 8 a piece; and cows and calves £ 13 to JE18.
