AUSTRALIAN WOOL MARKET SHOWING REVERSE TENDENCIES: WOOL REPORT A Winchcombe, Carson Ltd. report says that United States condi tions and tbe trend of Australian woo! markets recently have shown reverse tendencies. Prices for merino and the finer crossbred wools have display ed a rising movement, but commodity values and stock exchange quotations in America have been easifer.
