THOUGHT: It is forgiveness that sets a man working for God. He does not work in order to be forgiven, but because he has been forgiven, and the consciousness of his sin being pardoned makes him long for its entire removal than ever he did before. An unforgiven man cannot work. He has not the will, nor the power, nor the liberty. He is in chains. Israel in Egypt could not serve Jehovah. "Let my people go, that they may serve Me." was God’s message to Pharaoh (Exodus 8:1) first liberty, then service. -Horatius Bonar.

Listowel Market Yards And Tolls Bought By new Livestock Company

RUMOURS which had been current in Listowel for some time past that the market yards and toll rights had been purchased by a group of North Kerry fanners who intend to establish a cattle mart in Listowel have proved correct.

It has been ascertained authoritatively that the sale had taken place. The purchase price was not disclosed, but is believed to be between £7,000 and £8,000. A field adjacent to the railway station also has been bought by same group for the purposes of the cattle mart.


The newly-formed company, to be known as The Listowel Livestock Market Company, is comprised of the following fourteen farmers:—Messrs. Frank Wall, Tarbert, Chairman; John O’Connor, do.; Edward O’Connor, Sallowglen; Michael McEllistrim, Ballylongford; James O’Carroll, do; John R. Kissane, Tullihinell, Ballylongford; Michael and Maurice Kennelly, Coolaclarig, Listowel; Dermot O’Connor, Tullamore, do.; James Galvin, Finuge; John Corridan, Ballyorgan, Lixnaw; William O’Connor, Kilbaha, Moyvane; William Stack, Moyvane, and Timothy Leahy, Beenanaspuck, Athea. Mr. Joseph O’Mahony, solicitor; Secretary to the Company.
