SALES AT PINNAROO. FARMS AND STOCK OFFERED. EXPECTATIONS NOT REALISED. ' The large attendance at a sale of Pinnaroo farms conducted by Dalgety and Co,, at the Pinnai'oo Institute, re centlj', could (says the "Times") have "been taken as propheic of business eventuating, but despite the very ear nest endeavors of the auctioneer to in duce competition, every offering failed to reach the-reserve. Coining on top of an indifferent harvest, and the tem porary depression that usually follows these periods, the . time was possibly inopportune for a land sale. Under these circumstances, the lack of inter est shown was no fair criterion of land . values. The probabilities" are, if tho harvest had reached anything like an ticipations, there would not have been the slightest difficulty in obtaining a fair margin above the reserve. For Mr. J. II. J. Pahl's fine holding near the township the biggest offering was £5 15/ per acre, a figure which, it is understood, was very little under the owner's ...
