NORTH CARDIGANSHIRE HORTI CULTURAL SHOW. On Wednesday the fifth annual show of the North Cardiganshire Horticultural Society was held in the Elysian Grove. Unfortunately, for the second time in succession, the weather was wet and stormy and the day's proceedings will result in a considerable deficit. It is to be hoped, however, that the Society will not lose heart, bat persevere in the good work the Society is undoubtedly doing in the encouragement of gardening and the growth of flowers, the one being of materia! advantage to the family and the other of scarcely less importance to a resort for visitors, where the beauty and comfort of a town depends almost entirely on each householder making his particular dwelling clean and beautiful. After the lSDG show the Society started with a balance in hand of jE34 3s 4d but, in consequence of the wet day, ended the following year with a balance on the wrong side of the ledger of il3 !).s Od and that deficit will probably this year be increased to t.-PO, which is not a large sum for any society to be responsible for with a committee such a the Committee having the management of the Society with the whole town of Aberystwyth at their back. In some societies a deduction of a certain amount per cent, is made in the prizes when there is a serious deficit and it is only reasonable that some of the loss should be sustained by the people who take money as well as those who devote hours of time during the year to getting up the annual show and receive absolutely nothing. The Eari of Lisburne does not take a great deal of active interest in the public affairs of Aberystwyth and in this he is not singular among the local land- owners but he is no doubt a backbone of the Horti- ctiltural Soci, t for he not only gives the lead, as the aristocracy are supposed to do, as president of the Society, but is a large exhibitor. In fact, without the Earl of Lisburne, the show as regards flowers would be something like a play of Hamlet with Ham- let left out. Mr G. D. White is honorary vice-presi- dent, whatever that may mean, as vice-presidents are never or seldom paid for their services, and the ordi- niry vice-presidents are the Mayor of Aberystwyth, the Countess Amherst, Mr Vaughan Davies, M.P., Mr John Francis, Wallog, and Mr W. J. Inglis Jones, Derry Ormond. The other members of the Com- mittee are :âChairman of the Committee of Manage- ment, Mr Hugh Hughes, Glynpadarn; vice-chairman, Mr J. Purton, Terrace-road Committee, Messrs H. C. Fryer, Marine-terrace; W. H. Paliner C^ueen s- road; H. Mallorv, Llanbadarn-road C. M. Williams, Pier-street; T. H. Edwards, Llanbadarn-road; 1. W.

Bath-street; George Kowlev, Terrace-road; R. C. Williams, gardener, Crosswood James V eary, gardener, Gog- erddan D. Colviile, gardener, Fronfraith; A. Austin,' gardener, Abermaide C. Palmer, Llan- badarn-road R. Weller, New-street. The treasurer was Mr J. R. Rees, and the secretary, Mr H. G. Atwood, who as heretofore contributed materially to the success of the show, for it was successful in every- thing but the weather, by his attention to details and courtesy. The show was better housed than on former occasions, for the tents were larger and were not so "tuffy or the scent of the flowers so overpowering. The cottagers, as heretefore, had a tent all to them- selves and well they tilled it with fruit and flowers. The not more important exhibits, but the more costly and luxuriant exhibits, vere displayed in a large marquee. Around the sides were tables on which were exhibited fruit and vegetables, cut flowers, and flowers in pots. Down the centre were magnificent groups of flowers and plants which attracted every- body's attention and, in f-te t, formed the subject for the blue ribbon of the Society. Last year, the Earl of Lisburne took the ribbon. This year he was again successful. Last year, Mr J. Inglis Jones came second and Gogerddan third. This year Gogerddan had advanced and ran Crosswood rather close in regard to materials, but Derry Ormond had slightly retrogressed, though the group in itself, were other dear charmers away, was well worthy the prize. The gardeners represented were Mr Williams, Crosswood; Mr Veary, Gogerddan; Mr Crosier, Derry Ormond; Mr Austin, Abermaide and Mr Colville, Fronfraith. The group with which the Earl of Lisburne took first prize was topped with fans of light palms immediately under which were shoots of white and blue cam- panul&s gracefully arranged. Thence fell away in artistic lines masses of lily auretum. alocacia, crotons, orchids in great variety (for which Crosswood is famous), ferns, and calad.iurcs. A base of lilies of the valley and maiden-hair fern was edged by a pretty border of panicum. A novelty of the group was a yellow arum lily and several pitcher plants. The Gogerddan group was exceedingly rich in material and the design was, on the whole, artistic but there was a slight falling off in the heart of the group which undoubtedly gave to the otherwise very excellent col- lection second place. The Derry Ormond group was somewhat less various in material, but it was, on the whole, as has been said, a very creditable exhibition, particularly when the additional distance of Derry Ormond from the show ground is taken into consideration. In the groups ef hothouse plants and flowers, a magnificent anthunam with glossy deep-green leaves beautifully marked was shown by the Earl of Lisburne with success. It was very much admired. Mr Dougall, the man- ager of the Gas Works, is not only an expert in the manufacture of gas, but is a great lovet of flowers as anyone can see who visits the scene of his operations and notices how he has made the usually-gloomy sur- roundings of gas manufacture beautiful with flowers. t the show he offered a special prize in the shape of a valuable English lever watch for the best group of twelve begonias, six single and six double, the prize being open to all competitors. The prize was taken by Mr Austin, the Abermaide gardener, by a collec- tion of begonias which were universally admired. A fairly-large pecuniary offer was made for a beautiful double begonia in the group and a seedling reared by Mr Austin himself was an exceedingly-pretty 8P^C1- men. Mr Websdell of the Caergog Nurseries, Aber- ystwyth, was successful in his groups of stove and greenhouse plants and Messrs Clibran and Messrs Dickson were represented among the professional gar- deners. In the not-for-competition exhibits was a. beautiful light-yellow carnation just streaked with terra cotta, a seedling grown by Mr Weller, the Aber- ystwvth Corporation gardener. He also exhibited several fine-grown coxscoffibs. In tact, the whole show was exceedingly interesting and beautiful and it only required fine weather to have made it pecuniary successful. The judges were Messrs J- Lambert, Powis Castle, R. C. Townsend, Aston Hall, Oswestry, and Mr Charles Roberts, Halston Gardens, Oswestry, horti- cultural Mr G. Rosser, Neath, dog and poultry; and Mr T. W. Powell, Aberystwyth, honey.
