TALYGrARN COTTAGE GARDENERS' SHOW, The above- event came off on Thursday, the lUJli., inst. The judges were Mr. Edwards. Llansanwr, and Mr. Davies, Penllyne, and gave perfect satis- faction to each of the exhibitors. The manage- ment was not nearly so good as last year. That may. perhaps, be attributed to the inability of Mr. Wright to attend. He has been, we are sorry to state, unable to leave his bedroom for the lASt five months, and his absence made some things rather awkward. The attendance was very fair, being quite as good, if not better, than at the previous shows. Among those present we noticed Mr. G. T. Clarke, Mr. Godfrey L. Clarke, and Mrs. G. Clarke. The latter-mentioned distributed the prizes. Both Messrs. G. T. and G. L. Clarke spoke a few words on the occasion. The Llantrisant Fife Band played on the grounds.
