I Abergwili Horlicultnral and Agricultural Society* SUCCESSFUL SFOYv" ON THE PALACE GROUNDS A highly i.'UO'Jossiuj snow was liekV fit ^cergwiii OG Thursday, August llth, on the grounds of the Palace. kiiidlv lent for the ooca-ion by tho Lord Bishop of St. David's. After being dead for some time --hmec1 by internal strifo and jealousy— this society has been successfully resussita- uteu, and now that that difficult feath.s.a been accomplished, it is to be hoped that hotter counsels will prevail, and that Ahergwili | show will continue in the future as it has dcxie in the past—to bo an eVUllt veil worth | looking forward to by the hoitiralturists of Carmarthen aud acighboxtrhood, k very commodious tent accommodated the exhibit of flowers, fruits, and vegetables, Bath in the cottagers and the open class, there was good competition for the prices oA'erod for window plauta. Fuchsias call for a special word of praise, as they were shown in a pleasing variety of colours, and the plants were wo vigorous and well, trained that many ul thorn bore thirty or forty healthy bloouix, Geraniums also funncd a good class, although a little moro vitrioly might have hcon usefully imported into the character oi t ;.j exhibits. Some of the other piauts shown, included a number of pretty flowering" begonias, and several specimens of tlfe same family, whoso rich, dark, variegated leaver formed a pleasing feature of the exhibits, and prove -their great capaoihtub i<¡0U cultivated solely as a foliage pIa. t. In some of the cut-flower classes there was a lamentable lack of competition. The cottagers' section showed so few exhibits in these that the first prize waa not awarded in many of the classes. A fine lot of dahlias and asters v. ere shown but for some of the other prizes offered tho competition was more or less nominal. There was not a single entry in what ought to have been a pretty section—that for eix varieties of roses. This is not by any means du6 to the fact that Ahergwili people do not cultivate roses, but is probably attributable to the circum- stances that they So not give sufficient attenhon to these pretty flowers to have varieties caPahle of showing good blooms in the autumn. "With the exception of the two classes of plutus aii(i ted currants, there was a pretty good show of fruit, although here again the cottagers' section was fcv^C!1 lOa evident.
