The ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. The show of the Royal Agricultural Society at Shrewsbury bids fair to be one of the largest and best ever held by the society. The arrangements are now complete, and have been issued. On Saturday, July 12, the implement department only will be open to the public, and on this day the programme will be restricted to a general exhibition of implements at rest and in motion, from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. On Monday, July 14, the entire show-yard will be opened from nine in the morning, at which hour the judges will com- mence inspecting the live stock and making their awards. The yard will close at seven in the evening. On the four subsequent days admission to the show- yards can be obtained at eight o'clock in the morning, and it will not be cleared of visitors until the corre- sponding hour in the evening. In the morning and afternoon of each day, from Monday till Friday inclu- sive, the programme at the working dairy will be as follows; 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., dairy open for inspection of implements used 11.30 a.m. to 1 p.m., sepa- I rators at work in the horse-power dairy, and butter made on the French and Danish systems; 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., skimming and butter making in the small dairy; 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., dairy open for the inspection of implements used. Miss Smithard, an accomplished manipulator and teacher, will give demonstrations of butter-making, with verbal ex- planations of the various operations. This section of the Shrewsbury Show will be sure to prove a great centre of attraction, and, it may be hoped, of great practical utility. Displays of bee-driving will take place at two p.m. on the Monday, and at noon on the remaining days of the show, and lectures on bee management will be given at frequent intervals during the afternoon. This department- has been entrusted to the British Bee-Keeper's Association, the Royal Agricultural Society having granted a sum of money towards the expense of bringing their tent and other necessaries to Shrewsbury. Exhibitors of butter and cheese will be allowed until seven o'clock in the evening on Monday to send their entries into the show-yard; but it must be understood that any addition of salt to the butter will inevitably entail disqualiifcation. The judging of dairy produce will begin at ten o'clock on Tuesday morning, an hour later there will be a parade of cattle in the large horse ring. At half-past twelve a general meeting of members in the large tent near the centre of the yard. At 2.30 p.m. a parade of agricultural and cart horses will be followed by a parade of the thoroughbreds, hunters, hackneys, and ponies. There will also be similar parades on the succeeding days.
