It was proposed by some of the gentlemen present that.if some of the leading gentlemen of the dis trict could ibe got to.tako?.part in it, there could be -a cattle -chow got -up -in connection with the ploughing match. The necessary funds could be as easily raised as those .of the ploughing match, and as-it was remarked, it would-do a greatdeal more good to the district. The weather has again set in rainy, and the now made roads are more like swamps than anything else. Ploughing lhas begun in a few places for wheat, but not much can be done, as the weather won't permit. There is *nothing doing in the way of sales by auction. People seem to he all stocked,.and as a matter of course won't buy. ,
