Fox terriers were tho strongest class in the show Mr W V H Thomas scored well in beating Prince," who carried off the championship at Strabane, Ireland, a fortnight ago. I- ID The pointers were a fair lot, and the winner won easily in coat and head. In the setter class the firft animal was a nicely marked bitch the second was a good bitch, who, however, carried herself very badly. Retrievers were very scarce, but the winner was a very good dog, who carried himself well. Mr Roberts won the first prize in the greyhound class with a nice black bitch, which had a good shape body, nock and head. Mr Thomas's (Paris House) General Picton" had a well shaped body, and ran tho winner very cloie. Black spaniels were a strong class, and the first prize bitch won because she had a well shaped body, and so pleased the judge that he awarded her a special prize. Pencaer Hess" made a good second. Spaniel-, any colour, brought four competitors into the ring. The winner was a good liver dog the second was a black and tan, and both dogs were properly placed in order of merit. The winner of the smooth fox terrier (dog) class was a well-known winner, and carried off the prize easily; the second aLo was a good dog and deserved second honours. In the fox terrier (smooth) bitch class the first and second prize winners were old prize winners. A very good typo of a terrier was the winner of the fox terrier (dog) class. The fox terrier classes were well contested, and all of the winners were excellent dogs. The Irish terriers were a select lot, and the winner was a very promising puppy, which captured the first in this class, and in the other for Irish terriers who had never won a prize before. "Coxy Ben" was a fine specimen of a Welsh terrier with a good body, legs and feet, and captured the first prize in a well- contested class. Bull Terriers as visual turned up well. The winner "Dude "was a large dog with plenty of bone, but some would rather have seen Greenfield Jumbo" placed first. Long Sight Goneral" a black and tan, carried off the prize in the next class, the second being a tan, and tho third being a Scotch terrier. A very nice pug won the first in the toy class, whilst the second poizûwilluer was a black pomeranian. In the St. Bernard's class, the winner stood well out and won easily.
