Bargoed May Day Show. VERY SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. ALL ANTICIPATIONS EXCEEDED. Bargoed presented an animated appearance on Monday, two big events, the May Day Show and the Eisteddfod, contributing to bring thou- sands from all direotions. The show surpassed all the expectations of the committee, both in the merit of the exhibits as well as in the atten- dance, which ,&t one part of the day, was com- pud at between six and seven thousand. The money takings at the gates amounted to iluo. The weather was all that could be desired. The exhibits were exceptionally numerous and exceptionally fine, and with careful manage- ment, the Show Committee can scarcely fail to realise that the Bargoed May-Day Show gives promise of becoming a. really big thing. The attendance was a record one, and thus the fourth annual show has become the first in or- cter of merit- The Fleur-de-lis Silver Band, under the conduciorship of Mr. L. Evans added to the general enjoyment, and discoursed the following selections of music: Grand march "Claremont" (T.
