CRAVEN ARMS HORSE SALE. What was perhaps one of the most successful sales yet held at the South Shropshire and Central Wales- Horse, Repository was conducted by Messrs Jackson and McCartney on Saturday last, when a magnificent show of upwards of 200 horses passed under the hammer. Private buyers and dealers attended in large numbers from all parts, including London and Middlesex, Canterbury, Liverpool, Birkenhead, Bristol, I Manchester, Birmingham, Oldham, Crewe, Longton, Hanley, Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury, Welshpool, &c. Of the sales which have taken place at the difierent repositories, it was gener- ally the opinion of those present that this was far in advance of any seen, both as regards the quality and trade. The demand for best qual- ity draught horses was especially great, and a large number of these created keen competition, while vanners and lighter animals changed hands at proportionate rates, a Canterbury buyer taking 14 and another buyer from Middlesex 12. A silver cup value 10 gns. was offered in an open class for the best cart gelding or mare. A wonderful string paraded before the judge, Mr J Ferneyhough, The Lawns, Grosmont, Hereford, to compete for this, and after some difficulty his decision was awarded to Mr D P John, Stantou Licy, Ludlow, for an exceptionally useful bay gelding, which was snbsequently purchased for 77 guineas by Mr Cadwallader, of Liverpool. Mr W Alderson's brown gelding took the reserve card, his brown gelding, a horse of rare merit, failing to find a purshaser at 74 guineas. An excellent clear- ance was effected, 31 horses averaging as high as 57 gns. each. The following are some of the principal prices in guineas and vendors' names :—Mr D P John, Stanton Lacy, two bay geldings, 77 and 65 Mr R Roberts, Churchstoke, bay gelding, 70; Mr T H Whiteman, Buckton, two bay geldings, 64 and 50 Mr A R Clegg.
