Correspondence. — :o: TO THE EDITOR. Sut,—As our local shows are over for this your, I would like to trespass oil your space in the interest of breeders and ex hibitors. It is a well-known fact " the trouble to obtain competent judges for the different English breeds of sheep at our local show," aud men are often asked to act who are netthor breeders nor ex parts of the breedi thoy are asked to judge. Exhibitors look at it in a philosophical way and if decisions are against them (very often wrongly), tiny look for satisfaction at the next local show, but to lind the same would-be judge officiating at the next show they •xhibit at, is very d:s:oncartinz, and hardly fair to exhibitors. I cannot understand a man actinir as judge unless he is so egotistically ignorant as to imagine his judgment infallible knowing stock are meeting which he has adjiidi '.atad only a few days' previously and to hive a breeding ewe put out for temporary lameness only exposes ignorance on the so-called judg...
