TEE AUSTRALIAN WOOL TRADE. FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. At the pastoraliets' conversazione held recently in Victoria Mr. J. Newman Barker read a paper on 'The future development of the Australian wool trade.' Ho eaid — ' The critics of the Australian wool sales are never tired of descanting upon the evils which are said to arise from the existence of a dual market.

As hincl interfering iB most prevalent we will confine our remarks to it. Says Thomas F. Cowhey, in a paper read before the Master Shoera' Association in Detroit:— 'Lack of strength in the hind most parts of the horse is the most frequent cause of this defect.' Besides this leg weariness, wearing too heavy shoes and defective conformation are common causes of this trouble. very often, too, a horse is made to interfere by ?wearing shoes of irre gular and uneven surface. Says Mr. Cowhey — ' The remedy applicable in the case of a weak or leg- wearied animal is to use as light a shoe as possible, using a weight extending from the centre of the toe, _ following the outside to about the centre of the shoe; placing a light inside side-caulk, slightly raised, following the out...
