GLAMORGAN AGRICULTURAL SHOW. Local Successes at Swansea. As usual, this year's show of the Glamorgan Agricultural Society was full of interest to Pont- ypridd and the surrounding valleys. The exhibits from this district were fairly numerous, and local fanciers were well represented amongst the prize winners. In the dairy produce classes, Mr William Miles, Bertlilwyd Farm, Treharris, secured a second prize with his splendid cheese. Mr Rees Roderick, Quakers' Yard, came in for a second with his ducks. Mr Henry Rees, Pont- ypridd,took the premier card for working-homer pigeons. Deep interest attached to the equine classes, and in these Pontypridd shonel to distinct advantage. Mr John Trenchardlg well-known and handsome horses, "Spider" and "Pete," which were ridden by that dainty littler horsewoman, Miss Jones, figured splendidly and popularly on the prize list. "Spider" gained a second special prize in light weight hunters, whilst "Pete" was decorated with the premier card in hacks, and was also adjudged the best single harness mare or gelding not exceeding 15.2 in the show. We congratulate Mr Tren- chard and Miss Jones upon their signal success. Mr S. Evans, Penygraig, also did well. His 19 -11 1 "Lady May" took a second tor the nest pony not exceeding 13 hands, to be ridden by a boy not exceeding 13 years of age," and a first for single harness ponies, whilst his "Lord Elsman- da," was awarded first prize in the class for the best cob or hackney stallion. In the jumping contest there was a very deplorable hitch. The judges awarded first prize to one of Mr Tren- chard's horses and second to Mr S. Evans. "Lady Grey." The decision was, however, ap- pealed against, and at the time of going to press we are not in a position to give the re- sult. It may be mentioned that Mr Trenchard retained his v card although the prize was with- held. On the second day Mr Trenchard's Black Tom" was placed second second iR the trotting class, and his "Spider" occupied a similar posi- tion amongst the best jumpers of any height. Mr Sam Evans, Penygraig, was again successful his "Lady Grev' 'taking first prize for the bed jumpers in any of the hack or cob classes.
