A RETURN OF FINE WEATHER. After a considerable rainfall the past week brought an appreciable return of dry and season- able weather that enabled cultivation to be resumed under favourable circumstances and giving those farmers who were behind with their sowings a good opportunity to recover lost time. The month so far has proved seasonably mild, notwith- standing a few nips of frost, and the early sown grain is brairding well, the ground altogether being in good condition for the germination of the seed. Though one is apt to get impatient at a sharp rainfall at a critical season, the recent rains after all proved none too much for general purposes cultivation which has been proceeding in good form during the week, and the bulk of seeding may now be said to be fairly accomplished. It is to be hoped that the remainder of the month and a week or two later may continue dry to allow a fair com- pletion of arrears of ploughing, as well as any other work that is needed such as the clearing roots off the land, some of which remains to be done even yet. Pastures, which have kept green up till quite recently, begin now to wear a wintry aspect, and stuck requires increasing assistance from other sources. At the recent- Norwich Cattle Show his Majesty the King took the first, second and third prized for shorthorns, a special prize for shearling wetiueis, and for the best pen of sheep. The Queen was first with silver Soabright bantams, besides 'receiving high commendation. He* Majesty also received a reserve and high com- mendation in the class for silkies. Aa usual, the King's fat stock from the Royal (aims at Windsor will be sent to the Slough Christmas cattle show, to be disposed of on Dec. 12th. His Majesty's consignment will consist of 282 bead, and will comprise 32 Devon bullocks, 150 Hampshire Down and Southdown sheep, and 100 Berkshire bacon hogs and porkers. According to news from France, it appears that the autumn weather in that country has been j cauoh on a par ■with that experienced hare, with this eocoeption, that while we were suffering1 from this eocoeption, that while we were suffering from drought French agriculturists were hindered in their oorn sowing by too much wet. Frosts were frequent and severe in October, and enow foil in tome distnots. Speaking at the oper.ing of a fruit and chrys- anthemum show at Bewdley recently, the Earl of Coventry seid without oo-operation he felt that jt would be very difficult indeed in the' future for farmers to make both ends meet, as they had so many competiitois; and unprotected &3 they were, they could not get the fair prices they were entitled to. He wished he could get men of means to take their share in the agrioul- tural work of the country, for agriculture could not get on without their support. FARM SERVANTS HIRINGS. At the Carlisle luring fair for farm servants tbeno was a large gathering of men and boys, but the hirings were slow. The highest wages for best men ranged from 214 to J616, second-close £12 to j613, st-rong youths £ 9 to JBll, and boya JB5 to LB. Womeai and girl servants were scarce. and1 commanded good wagrM-experienoed women from £10 to £ 12, others JB8 to 29, and girls from :£5. At the Kendall hiring fair there was a larger supply of labour, and wages were down to from L17 to £ .18 for best men, second-class men 212 to £ 15, and youths £ 6 to E8. A better demand for women and girls enabled experienced women to obtain £ 11 to £ 15. and girls f,5 to £ 8. CROP VALUES IN IRELAND. The writer of an article on "ThÐ Position of Irish Agriculture in 1904" gives some figures rc- specting the values of the several crops during last j-ear, which, if they are only approximate, may possess interest for many English readers. The aggregate he sets down at E30,098,000, in- cluding ha.y fron:. permanent pasture, and made up ae follows: —Wheat £198,000, barley L346,000, here and rye, £ 40,000, beans and peas, £ 14,000, oats £ 4,761,000, flax £ 510,000,potatoes £5,945,000, turnips £ 2,998,000, mangolds £ 999,000, rotation hay E4,685,00,3, and hay from permanent grass £ 9,102,000. LINCOLN RED SHORTHORNS AS MILKERS In the course of a report published by Mr. John Evens of his milk record for the pa,st year, the average yield for 43 cows., including eight first-calf heifers, works out at the satisfactory figuro of 842 gailons per cow, compared with 780 gallons in 1904. This, however, is stated to be only fifth on tha list of fifteen averages, the best having- been 839 gallons for forty-throo head in 1896, while in 1897 the average for thirty-six head Was 881 gallons, in 1895 for forty-three 867 gal- lons, !I:nd in 1890 for thirty-four head 860 gallons It appears that the highest individual yield during the past year was 1,446 gallons for a oow named Young Cherry, which had been in milk 350 days; other ton" animals yielded over 1,000 gallons, and the lowest individual total yield waa 428 gallons. Such records as this of Mr. Evens'3 constitute a. splendid object lesson for the dairy farmer, who would be well informed to ascertain on which stie t-ho balance-sheet his profits or loasea lie- THE EMBARGO ON CANADIAN CATTLE. At the first meeting of the Liverpool Corpora- tion Markets Committee for the prasent munici- pa.l year the question of the embargo on the importation of foreign cattle, which have now to be slaughtered within ten days of arrival at tbo port of disembarkation, was considered and dia- cussed. It was argued that the present arrange- Irdmtiha3 a detrimental effect on the meat supply of the country, and that farmers would be able toO strengthen the breed of their stock and to. bufirelit by millions of pounds sterling per annum by kitting their land for grazing purposes by free importation, and the committee unanimously passed a resolution to the effect that the restric- tions on the importation of Canadian cattle in- juriously affect the meat of Great Britain, and are a serious injustice to farmers and con- sumers. They believe that the removal of the restrictions would be beneficial to the trade of the port and of the public cattle market; and they strongly support the action which is being taken for obtaining euch an amendment of the Diseases of Animals Act. 1896, as will permit of the landing of Ca,na-dian cattle into this country without being required to be slaughtered at the ports of disem- barkation. A conference of murucipajlities amd associations interested is to be held in London on the 27th insit. GROWING BEET-SUGAR IN ENGLAND. The possibility of the establishment of beet- sugar faotoriiee in this country, says the "Grocer's Gazette," is being seriously canvassed in several parta of the country, and an interest- ing report on the matter has been issued from Lincolnshire. Mr. W. Hazlett Roberts, the author of the report, states that Owston Ferry, on the banks of the Trent, is the site selected, and already secured, for the first factory, and it is assumed that all the land for many miles around thero will grow heavy crops of beet. The rtohness of the roots in sugar depends almost en- tirely upon the seed planted, but it is stated that on the land at the Isle of Axholme pda/nting rrations to any extent may be carried on with oertainty of g-ettring good crops. On 3,000 acres of such land it is calculated that 60,000 tons of sugar-beet may be produced, which, if sold by growers at 15s. a ton, would bring £ 45,000. A whaat crop on the same area yielding at the rate of four quarters per acre would bring in L18,000, the balance in favour of sugar-beet in the gross being £ 27,000, or £ 9 per acre. This leaves out of account the value of the wheat straw, as it does a!-go that of the tops of the sugar- beet, which are valuable both for cattle food and manure. The balance-sheet in connection with this undertaking estimates that from 60,000 tons of siugar-beet 8,000 tons of sugar would be pro- duced, and this, at the current rate of 210 per ton, would bring in £ 80,090; 15 tons of pulp at 12s. per ton, 2900; 1,000 tons of molasses at £ 2 16s. 8d. per ton, £ 2,333. 6s. 8d.; saturation lime for manure, £ 500; total, £ 91,833. 6s 3d. On the other side, 60,000 tons of beet is estimated to oost 245,ODD: ooet of operating at 6s. per ton of beet, 218,00b; balance for office and staff ex- penses, management, reserve, depreciation, and interest on capital, £ 28,833. 6s, 8d. Experiments carried out on the estate of the Earl of Denbigh, at Newnham Paddox, Warwickshire, resulted in an average yield of cleaned roots (tops removed) of 16 tons 3cwt. 2qr. 13lb. per acre, the best crop being within 5cwt. of 17 tons, and the lightest lOtons 17cwt. These crops oontairaod a greater peroembaee of sugar as* compared with German crops, the average being 88.49 for the English as against 85.63 for the German roots.
CATTLE AND POULTRY SHOW.—The fifty-seventh annual exhibition will be held in Bingley Hall, Birmingham, from November 25th to 30th. The entries compare favourably with those of the last five years. The Board of Agriculture have passed a special order which will again allow swine to be exhibited. There will be the usual good show of corn, roots, and potatoes, and the large number of attractive stands, implements, &c. The leading railway companies are running a large number of excursions at low fares.

FRUIT & CHRYSANTHEMUMS. --+- BRILLIANT DISPLAY AT CHESTER. The Chester Paxton Socicty believes in creating records. Owing to the sunless autumn it was feared that the seventeenth exhibition of fruits and chrysanthemums, held in the Town Hall on Wednesday and Thursday, would be below the average, but the exhibits were slightly in excess of last year's, and it is worthy of note that on that occasion they were more numerous than ever before in the history of the society. It was satisfactory that the increase was mai nly due to the excellent manner in which the cottagers' classes had filled. This speaks well for the edu- cational aspect of the society's work. As usual the most conspicuous exhibits in the show were the groups of single and double chrysanthemums. The president (Major MacGiliycuddy) gained premier honours in both classes last year. His gardener (Mr. Stubbs) again staged really ex- quisite groups, and the judges had great diffi- culty in deciding between these exhibits and thoso of Mr. T. Gibbons Frost, whose gardener (Mr. T. Gilbeit) had arranged collections which, for quality and tasteful arrangement, were almost as perfect as they could possibiy be. Eventually they unanimously awarded the first prize (a chal- lenge cup in each case) to Mr. Frost, and ex- pressed the opinion that Major MaoGiilycuddy's groups came very close in point of excellence. Mr. James G. Fiost was piaced third, and his head gardener (Mr. Clack) is to be complimented on a very attractive group. It may bo added that the latter's blooms were not so far advanced as the others. Premier honours for the group of single varieties, were secured by Dr. Lawrence, of tho County Asylum, Upton, who was closely followed by Major MacGillyouddy. Here, again, the competition was close. For quality of bloom, variety of colour, and tasteful arrangement, both were excellent examples. The display of table decorations has come to be a popular feature of the exhibition, and with a view of encouraging this department Mrs. James G. Frost this year offered a challenge cup. The winner was Miss '*so''ja^ Smith, Puiford, whp had effectively decor- ated her table with spirafe Japonica, pale rose- coloured begonias, these light shades being beau- tifully relieved by tho pale blue browalia elata. The whole was interspersed with maidenhair fern and smiiax. Mrs. W. Welsby (last year's winnetr) scouted second honours, her exhibit consisting chiefly of French copper-coloured roses, relieved L with forced white lilao and finished off with maidenhair and other ferns. Mrs. Gibbons Frost followed the latter very closely, and Mrs. Barnes (Eaton) was awaided the fourth prize. There were altogether ton entries in this competition. For the decorated ladies' baskets five entries were secured The first prize went to Mrs. Dimond Hogg (Saltney), who was very closely followed by Miss Wallis, of Eastgate Row, while Mrs. Breen, Tattenhall, was placed third The side tables in the Council Chamber were beautifully ornamented with chrysanthemum blooms. In the class for eighteen cut blooms, six distinct Japanese varie- ties, Mr. Charles Threlfall (gardener, Mr. T. Her- bert) was first, and Sir George Meyrick (per Mr. W. Pilgrim) was second, his collection including Lady Hanbam, one of the most beautiful blooms m the exhibition. Other prize-winners in this section included Mr. W. E. Whineray (Neston), Mr. Jenn.on, Mr. S. H.. Sandbaoh. Mr. T. Gib- bons Frost, Mr. James Tomkinson, M.P., Dr. Lawrence, etc. The exhibits of single varieties of chrysanthemums and naturally-grown blooms were mom numerous and finer than at any pm- vious show. This is an indication that they are replacing the large-flowered double varieties for decorative purposes. The display of gia-pos was rather unde,r the average. Sir Charles Maclaren (gardener, Mr. James Saunde.rson) received the first priz-- for black grapes, and S r Gcc'ge- Mey- rick was placcd first for white grapes, jjcoaliy, pears have been good this year, and excellent samples were shewn. Mr. John Thompson was represented by some fine specimens of Doyenne du Cornice. Miss Cox, Malpas, shewed aomc mow i- 7 toriaus samples of Pitmaston DucHosse, and lYÜ". Ambrose D xon was to the fore with some Ma.rie pears Mr. W. Townshend Currie took first prize with a fine dish of Beurre Di-el. Mr. Saunderson shewed some dishes of Worcester Pearmain apples and Gascoyne's Scarlet, both having remarkable depth of colour. Fine ex- amples of kitchen apples were staged, Mr. R. Eroc-klebank taking the first prize for twelve varieties. Mr. W. R-chardson Moss (Upton) sent a fine exhibit of bogona, Gloir-e de Lorraine, and Mrs. Roberts, The Nook, sent some blooms of seedling chrysanthemums, which were much ad- mired. Silver medals were awarded to Messrs. Dioksons. Messrs, Clibran, bronze medals to Messrs. MeHattie and Co., and Mr. F. W. Dutton, "e Queen's Park Nurseries, and the society's gold modal was-v. warded to the Duke of Westminster (per Mr. Barnes) for a beautiful table largely composed of apples and pears chiefly grown in orchard houses, together with some fine dishes of grapes, decorated with single chrysanthemums and foliage p'ants. The judges were:—Chrys- anthemums Mr. E. F. Hazel ton, Knowslev, P: c?eot; Mr. Alex. Bafgart, Moor Park. Lud- low. Fruit: Mr. W. Cramp, Madresfield Court; ME. H. Forder, Ruthin Castle; Mr. E Severn, Combermere Abbey; Mr. C. Flack, Cholmon- d-eley Castle. Bottled fruits: Mr. H. G. Little. The stewards were Messrs. G. Lvon, Joseph Ryder, Stephen May, Robert Wakefield, N. F. Barnes and John Weaver. The onerous duties of lion, secretary were again ably discharged bv Mr. G. P. Miln. THE LUNCHEON. Major MaoGillyouddy presided at the luncheon, held at the Blossoms Hotel, and after the loyal toa.sts. the Mayor (Alderman Lamb) proposed :'Tho Paxton Socioty.Major MacGillyouddy, m responding, said they were fortunate in having a number of new exhibitors this year Mr. N. F. Barnes proposed "The Judges." Mr. Crump, in responding, spoke in high terms of the excellence of the show, and especially commended the groups of chrysanthemums and the table decorations. Mr. Haggard also responded. Mr. Siddall gave "The Successful Competi- tors," and Mr. Gibbons Frost responded, express- ing the hope that Major MacGiliycuddy would long continue to be president. Major MacGillycuddy, in cordial terms of ap- preciation, proposed the health of Mr, Miln, and the tatter, m responding, said the financial aspect of the society was a very good one. He specially referred to the fact that Mr. Wakefield had col- lected over JE20. OPENING CEREMONY. When the Countess Grosvenor declared the show opan on Wednesday afternoon there was a crowded attendance. Major MaoGillycuddy pre- sided, and among those present were the Mayor and Mayoress, the Sheriff and Mrs. Ferguson, Sir George and Lady Meyrick, Col. Evans-Lloyd, Mr. George Diokson, Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons Frost, Mr. F. F. Brown, Mrs. MacGillyouddy, the Rev. H. Grantham, etc. Lady Grosvenor, in declaring the show open, said: I thank you very much for your kind wel- come to this brilliant garden of fruit and flowers, into which it is delightful to enter. It reminds me of the words in John Gerardo's "Old Her- ball"—"Where besides the fruits rare flowers do singularly delight, when in them man doth be- hold a flourishing show of summer beauties in the middest of winter—and a goodly spring of flowers, when, abroade, scarce a Leaf is on the tree." The extreme beauty of this show must be very gratifying to the Chester Paxton Society, and to its members and prize-winners I offer my sincere congratulations. It is with great pleasure I now have the honour of announcing this show to be open, hoping that many will come in to enjoy its loveliness. (Applause.) On the proposition of the Mayor, seconded by Mr. Gibbons Frost, the Countess waa warmly thanked. A similar compliment was paid the president, on tho motion of Col. Evans-Lloyd, seconded by the Sheriff. Major MacGiliycuddy, in responding, mentioned the large increase in the exhibits in the cottagers' section, which, he said, was a sign of the great interest taken in the show. The number of mem- bora in the society now stood at 558. (Applause.) This, he thought, was very creditable.

AN M.P.'S ONLY FAULT. --+-- INCIDENT AT A MOLD MEETING. A Liberal meeting was held at Mold Town Hall on Tuesday night, when speeches were delivered by two members of Parliament-Messrs. Samuel Smith and Herbert Lewis. After Mr. Smith had spoken an incident took place which greatly enlivened the meeting. Mr. J. B. Marston, a local Churchman and Conservative, approached the platform and proceeded to address the assembly, at first not without some little inter- ruption. Persisting in his remarks, Mr. Marston said Perhaps you will be extremely astonished at what hashappened. (Laughter.) I do not suppose there is a bigger Tory or a bigger Conservative in the whole county of Flint than I am." (Laughter, and a voice "Down with him.") But I should like to take this opportunity—if I may be allowed—of saying that we in Mold would like to pay some compliment to Mr. Samuel Smith. We look upon Mr. Smith as a kindly-hearted, philanthropic gentleman. (Applause.) I am very proud of Mr. Smith, as our member. The only thing I am sorry about is that he is a Liberal, instead of being a Conservative. (Laughter.) Having made these remarks, Mr. Marston took a seat on the platform for a ,sbort time, and later departed by the door which leads into the ante- room.

FOAL SHOW INCIDENT. ( t EXHIBITOR AND THE SECRETARY. COUNTY COURT SEQUEL. At Chester County Court, on Thursday, hie Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd and a jury heard an action in which Herbert Jones, of the Butter- bache Fann, Groat Boughton, sought to recover damages for alleged assault from Thomas J. Dut- ton, Moor-ia-ne, Waverton. Mr. W. I-I. Churton appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Cuthbert Smith, barrister (instructed by Mr. E. Brasoey) for de- fendant. Mr. Churton stated that tbo assault wia alleged to have baen committed upon plamUI by the do- fondant at the toal show held' by the Chester Far- mers' Club on the 23rd of September. The cir- cumstances, he eaid, wore very extraordinary. Plaintiff entered a yearling colt for competition at the show. The dasoription of the Ciass in whioh the animal was entered was somewnat am- biguous and misleading, and before the show plaintiff went and asked defendant, who was secretary to the show, if it was admissible for him to enter it in that oia»s. Mr. Dutton icpiiod in tho affiimative, and gave him an entry iorm. The colt was awaided first prize, and a. first prize card was handed to him by Mr. Kennedy, one of tho stewards, and affixed to the animal. A littio later Mr. Storrar, the veterinary suigeon to the ciub, told plaintiff it was possible there would be an objection to his eoit on the ground that it was entrro, and suggested that he should take the second prize. Mr, Jones, however, received no ofnoial intimation that an objector had been lodged. About hali-past one o'clock, while ho was standing by the oolt, Mr. Dutton rushed up in a very excited state, and without saying a word proceeded to cut the tape with which the card was fastened to the colt. Piaintiix, antici- pating what was going to be done, put iv's ha.nd on the ca,d, defendant produced a knife, and in attempting to cut the tape he out a hole through the oloth on the horse and in- flicted a serious wound on Joness right wrist over two inohes in length. Plaintiff, who bled profusely, said, "What on earth have you done that for," but defendant offered no apoogy and did not utter a sing ie syllable. Fortunately a young man and a policeman came up immediately and rendered first aid, and Mr. Jones atoiwL,,r(, I,i had the wound stitched and 'dressed at the Innr- rnaiy. Subsequently he returned to the show, when Mr. Dutton approached him and said some- thing about an apology, but plaintiff replied that it was too s-orious a matter for the acceptance of an apology. Mr. Jones was absolutely unable to fohow his employment for a fortnight, and was partially disabled for four weeks. He now sought to recover damages for what ho regarded &6 a most tinwarrantable, assault. Fortunately dø- fondant's knife just escaped tho artery; other- wise tho consequences might have bean very serious. Mr. Cuthbert Smith suggested that the quee- tion was whether defendant deliberately cut Mr. Jones with a knife. His Honour: Yes. Never mind whether there wao any causa or not. Surely there can be no justification for suoh an assault as that, if it waa committed. Plaintiff, in giving evidence, said when Mr. Dutton came up and oommitted the outrage he appeared to be three-parts drunk. When he met defendant in the street some time afterwards the latter simply laughed at him. Defendant had behaved more like a savage than a man. Cross-examined, plaintiff said ho-was of opinion that defendant committed the injury purposely, Mr. Cuthbert Smith Did you ever quarrel with him? Plaintiff: No. Then this man, with whom you have never quarelled. deliberately cut your arm?—Yes, un- der the influence of drink. You told that to the polioeman 1- Yes, because I thought so. Plaintiff denied that the injury was caused bo- oause 00 drew his hand across defendant's knife while the latter was cutting the tape. It was un- truo that he tore the card in pieces in order that Mr. Dutton Should not take it. Evidence in support of the plaintiff was given by Dick Hill, of Orewe; Polioe-constable Rogers, Dr. Spencer (house surgeon at the Infirmary), and Dr. Mann. Rogers stated that after the occur- rence Mr. Dutton made a statement to him to the effect that an objection had been made to Mr. Jones's colt, that he went to remove the card 1 from the animal, that' Jones resisted him, and he accidentally cut his wrist; Witness did not think Mr. Dutton was under the influence of drink. Defendant, in his evidenoe, said he had been an extensive stock-brooder and exhibitor îorover thirty years, and had judged at numerous shows, He told plaintiff that an objection had been made against his animal. Jones asked if lie could keep tho card, and defendant replied that in his per- sonal op'nion ho should not, but he would lay the matter before the committee. A meeting of tho committee was afterwards held on the ground, and they were unanimous in upholding tho ob- jootion. Witness mentioned to plaintiff that re must not keep the card, as that was the commit- tee's ruling. He afterwards went with Mr. Gas- kell to tho plaintiff, who was standing threie or four yards from the colt, and' with his back to the wall. Witness walked up to out the card off, and when he had his hand on the horse's neck Jones rushed up and said, "What are you doing?" Witness replied, "Taking this card off Plain- tiff said, "You shan't. I'll tear it up first." Ho then made a grab at it, and must have caught the knife blade. As witness was walking away plaintiff said, "See here what you have done with your nail." Witness, seeing the wound. said, "There is no nail abdut that, but what has been done you have done yourself." Later, when he saw plaintiff in tho yard, he said he was sorry it had happened, but plaintiff brushed him asidlo, saying "You will hear all about this another day." Evidenoe in support of defendant was given by Mr. A. S. Gaskell, a past president of the Chester Farmers' Club; Mr. Alfred Beach and Mr. Lewis Dodd. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff, awarding 220 damages. Judgment was entered accordingly.
