Iry nnd semi-desert connlrv of the inte rior that has brought the South Australian merino so '.mniistakaWv to tho fi-ont. —History of a Famous Flock.— Sixty years ago the late Mr. John Mur- ray laid the foundation of the Murray Bro- thers' celebrated merino stud flocks, which are known throughout Australasia for their magnificent constitutions and highly profit- able quualities (says Mr. D. J. Gordon in 'The Central State'). The history of sheep-breeding in Australia provides many striking examples of patient determined work over a series of years to attain some desired result, but it would be difficult to find anything to equal the constant labour of Mr. John Murray. and the undaunted fortitude displayed bv him in achieving such wonderful results as a breeder of high- class merinos. The founder of these flocks possessed a resolute will, and had a re- markably clear and intelligent conception         of the type of sheep he intended to pro-   duco. Mr. Murray throughout the period of his work of construction proceeded on   well-defined lines. He had faith in himself and in his plans, and believed in the old adage that 'they can conquer who know they can.'' Criticism might be passed on the results of his labours, and good advice given or praise bestowed on his success— it had little or no influence one way or the other.       He was critic-proof and praise-proof, and the type of his flock was not interf'ered with by every passing fancy of the moment.   The work he began has been continued by his sons, and the Murray studs to-day oc- cupy a unique position among the merino flocks of Australasia. Mr. Murray prac- tised from the outset the delicate and in- tricate art of in-and-in breeding. and this is being continued. There has only been one foundation in the creation of the flocks which exercise a great influence throughout Australasia at the present time. They have been inbred for 60 years, no other blood having been introduced into the flocks since tho first purchase of a ram and a few ewes. This of itself gives to the Murray merinos an importance which is not shar- ed by any other flock in South Anstralia. Apart from that, it is well known that the influence of these sheep for many years past has been considerable, not only in this State, but throughout the Commonwealth and in New Zealand and South Africa. —Tbe Type.— The Murray type of merino is an animal of large, symmetrical frame, healthy and

vigorous constitution, clean skin, silky face, carrying fleece of great weight, long staple, ample yolk, good density, not too fine in quality all over the body, well covered with even, soft, lustrous wool of elastic character. — Distributing the Stud Sheep.   On the death of Mr. John Murray in 1883 the original flock was equally divided be-   tween his four sons. Mr. John Murray   became owner of the Rhine Park Estate   and a fourth of the flock; Mr. Alick J.   Murray. Mount Crawford: the iate Mr. T.   Hope Murray. Mount Beevor; and Mr W. A. A Murray. Cappeedee. In January, 1902, in accordance with the will of the late Mr. W. A. Murray, the Cappeedee stud sheep were equally divided among the three bro-   thers, and Mr. T. Hope Murray took his share to Mount Beevor. — -A Unique Sale.—   For a quarter of a century Mount Beevor has been noted as one of the best wool producing properties in South Australia, and it was only to be expected that the dispersion sale of the stud flock, which was held on Thursday, would attract consi- derable attention among pastoralists and buyers. This interest was not by any means confined to the State, for there were visitors from Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and Western Australia, and   practically all our leading sheep men at-   tended. Never before had the tree-fringed roads leading to Mount Beevor been stir- red into such activity. Motor cars, traps, wagons, bicycles, every type of vehicle     wound ar'oimd the white, twisted thorough fares. Elder, Smith, & Co. had made ex- cellent arrangements for the big auction, and the drag journey in the early morning sun through the fertile, undulating country was something to be enjoyed. The pens were conveniently situated, and they were the. cynosure for critical eyes, seeking a basis on which to bid, The massive, well shaped frames of the sheep, with their rich fleeces of top-quality wool, were gene- rally admired, and many of the interstate buyers were filled with an envy superior to their purchasing power. Tlie presence of such men as Sir Samuel McCaughey, of North Yanko, Dunlop, and other famous New South Wales stations, and Messrs. Percy Chirnside, of Werribee Park and Kil- len, Victoria, Treweek. and H. Z. Armstrong, New South Wales; J. F. T. Hassell, and Messrs.         McRae, Rose, and Hardy of Western Aus tralia, was a fine tes'timoii j- to tlie reputa tion of the S-)uth; Australian ;meri-ao,. and showed hmM.anxioua.breeders'iri.Uie other States are to incorporate- .-them in their flocks. Evidently; they have had enough of the excessively wrinkled sheep and the associated deterioration of constitution.' Their attendance .was .an .r admission that they want our big, robust specimens; which combine in a magnificent manner size of carcase and length of staple., .The Victo rian sheep are naturally small 'and 'of a fine fibre, but presumably the pastoi-alU'ts there too realize the necessity, of tne toftt! which the bolder wooled merino can import into the type. Tlie experience of Western Aus tralia in the. sheepbreeding. industry has been limited, and the fact that ^buyers came from that State is a futther compliment to South' Australia., ,Since\ the historic sale perhaps 25 -years' ago of stud sheep from the estate of Air. Pitt. of-The LeveU. when

some remarkable figures were. realized, no auction of equal importance .lias-, taken place, and when the ??veteran- salesman Mi*. Crispe began his. chntter there . were be lwe-?n 200 and 300 around tlie pens. —Pledging _an Honour.— ^ There were. unique 'features .about .the Mount Beevor' dispersion; and Mr. Wj Eey nell referred to. them, before the. buying be san. He congi-atiikted the tfalliering* on'its repre.=eutative character.;. He. said he bad been in the habit, of , attending saleii in all the States for the last 20 J'ears, and lie could candidly' sav ihat he hadrJievier .met an audience which embraced' so vizE\i pro minent sheep men;- Everytliiriff ivafffor al)-' solute sale, owing to the death of the proprietor arid the disposal of the estate. There was one point he desired ; to -em-- phasize. None of. the: Murray ?family.;- was competing for the peris. ' After the death of Mr. 'W. A? Murray one-third .of tile pap peedce special '.stud was removed to Mount Beevor, and-n«t one of theni had been sold, except as surplus sheep or to improve the. flocks by 'culling. .He wtis prepared to pledge ' tlie 'honour,- 'of tlie ' 'Murray ? fa mily, on that-,' and if theni. we,rc«thbise who Syoiild doubt. tliem— and 'he could iiofc be li'eve it— then he pledged the hofiour of his firm.
