L L A N S T E P II A N. SUCCESS OF MR STEPHENS.—Wherever Welsh- men—aud especially Carmarthenshire men—settle down they are sure to moke their mark in what- ever branch of industry they follow. On this occasion we have to refer-and it gives us very great pleasure in doing so-to the success gained by Mr Stephens, the sou of our respected friend, Mr Evan Stephens, of Lan. As our readers are aware Mr Stephens went out to Soutfi Africa about twelvemonths ago, and is at present resident at Tyger Vlei. In March he competed in The Western Province Royal Agricultural Show," the chief sho v in South Africa, and suooaeded in taking the 2nd prize for the best 10 lbs of fresh butter, the prizes being given by the Government. The batter was superior in every respect to the first prize- winner, the one fault being the colour, which was a little too light. The iirst was far too deep. but the judges admired the colour. Mr Stephens and his friend (Mr Jones) also competed in butter- making. There were 12 competitors, of which eight were coilcgians at Stellenbosch Dairy College ('wo of whom had left college about two mouths previous). The first day of the show 12 performed, and on the last day, the best five were selected for the final contest, zpnd Mr Stephens was amongst the number, his friend (Mr lones) being one point short, or he would have been in as well. The competitors had to prepare their utensils at oncc after the orders were given, and iu the presence of a large number of spectatots the pro- j ceedings commenced. After a hard task the I decision came as follows :—1st prize, 177 points oat » of a possible 200 2nd, 175 3rd, 173 4th and 5tb, t 171^, and here Mr Stephens came in, leaving behind | 2, 11 him five college pupils. The first was a gentleman's I dairyman, who makes butter every day. Mr Stephens and Mr Jones were before him in the 19 lbs fresh butter class. Mr Stephens never made pats before the show day. We heartily c mgrntalate Mr Stephens on the remarkable success which he attained in his adopted home, lie is following in the footsteps of his esteemed father.
