Fenarth, Cogan, and Ilandougb Horticultural Society. SEVENTH ANNUAL EXHIBITION. On Wednesday, from early morn until late at night, Cogan was all alive, that being the day for the seventh annual exhibition of the Penarth, Cogan, and Llandough Horticultural Society. As each year's show has been held it has grown in importance, and it now stands second to none in the district, of course excluding Cardiff. The weather was all that could be desired, the sun shitting brilliantly. The attendance of visitors during the afternoon was not so large as usual, but this was more than compen- sated for by the crowds which thronged every part of the show in the evening. The dancing was a source of very great attraction, hundreds paying for admission. This was carried on without intermission during the whole of the evening in two large rooms, but bad these been treble the size, they would have been inadequate to meet the demands of the young people. Great disappointment was felt that there was no ambulance competition. Every effort was made to get competition, but without avail. The reciting competitors, for which a special prize was given by Mr VV. L. Morris, J.P., was very good. There were several children who entered, and these 1 all did well, but Mr Waugh, the adjudicator, had no difficulty in deciding to whom to award thb prize. Miss Dottie Ram, Penartb, carried off the trophy. An attractive feature in the evening's entertainment was the hinging of a select choir, led by Mr J. F. Proud. A number of solos were also rendered. A choice selection of music was performed during the after- noon by the Penarth Orchestral Band, and this same party also did service during the evening for the terpsichoreans, In the absence of Lady Windsor, through a misunderstanding on the part of Lord Windsor, Air W. L. Morris, J.P., chairman of the Penarth District Council, performed the opening ceremony, and, in the course of a short speech, said he was proud to observe the cultivation of allotment gaidens among the working classes was becoming better each succeeding year. The judges of the horticultural section were Messrs J. Pettigrew and S. Treseder, and the«e declared they had never seen better cottagers' exhibits. Miss Bale, needlework in- structress, Cardiff School Board Mr R. Monro, mana- ger Penarth Slipway: and Mr James Waugh, M.A., Higher Grade School, Cardiff, were the judges of the industrial classes; and Mr J. H. Payne, Gloucester, judged the birds. The show was the largest yet held, the enteries numbering over 1.000, and to the secre- tary, Mr Hall, and his assistant, Mr R. Price, must be accorded much credit for the efficient manner in which they discharged their onerous duties. The Right Hon. Lord Windsor is president of the Society, and F. B. Jotbam, Esq., C. C. is the treasurer. The following is the list of awards:- PLANTS AND ELÜWERS. Drvison A.—Cottagers of Penarth, Llandough, and Cogan.
