CHESHIRE AGRICULTURAL SHOW. The Cheshire Agricultural Show is held, as will be seen from our advertising colums, at Crewe this year, on August 28th, and we are informed that it bids to be a most successful one. The entries all round are good, and the number in the cattle classes (except one year) is a record. It will be gathered from the following particulars of the entries how much better this year's show will be than the last one held in Crewe, in 1887 :—cheese and butter, 74, against 52 in 1887; cattle, 110, against 83 pigs, 32, against 25; horses, 269, against 90; sbeep,47, against 73; seed and vegetables, 128, against 92; implements, 38, against 32. The Mayor of Chester is offering a special prize of 910 10s. for the best four cheeses made on the long-keeping principle, and it is hoped there will be a keen competition, as there is much room for improvement in this direction. The president (the Earl of Crewe) is offering champion prizes in the cattle and horse classes, aa also are Messrs. F. Lloyd, Nuttall, and Co. The Earl of Tatton gives a £10 cup for the best shire mare or filly. As the show is held in the Alexandra Field and the Cattle Mart adjoining, it is close to the station, and therefore most convenient for both ex- hibitors and visitors. The horses (except mares and foals) will be stalled in the large stable in the market, and will consequently be well protected from the weather if it should prove inclement. In connection with the show the Crewe Canine Association will hold their exhibition, and for those whose tastes run in another direction a cricket match will be played between the Alexandra and Port Hill Clubs. Horse leaping and turnout competitions will take place in the large ring, while the Crewe Steam-shed Band will play selections during the day, and dancing will be indulged in in the evening. Given fine weather it is believed that the show will be the most attractive the society has held for many years.
