RHUDDLAN. THE ANNUAL HORTICULTURAL SHOW. The annual show of the Khuddlan district Horti- cult ural Society took place on Thur,dt% in tha grounds of the fine old castle at Rhuddlan, under the patronage of the High Sheriff of Flintshire. Maj)r Kowley Conwy and Mrs Conwy, of Bodrhyddan Hall. The society extend,; its operations over the whole of the district lying within five miles of the to VN, and its principal object is the promotion of horticulture amongst the cottagers and market gardeners, and this object has. during the few last years, been fully attained. The anou d event is regarded with considerable interest by the residents of the district. and is a source of great attraction to the visitors at Uhyl, but this year it was shora of its attractiveness, and lost nearly all, if not all its success, by the wretched weather that prevailed. The slow day was preceded by much rain, and Thursday opened dull and wet, and I hroughont the whole day the rail descended in torrents, whilst the boisterous winds that prevailed completed fht discomfort of the situation. It was hopeless even to expect success, and those interested in the aff tir were reluctantly compelled to submit to the inevitable, aud pndPllvour to make the bes. of a bad job." The Denbigh town band, under the leadership of Mr R. Jones, provided the music. The flowers were very Tastefully arranged in a large tent on the ground, and 'he vegetables were placed on the greensward. There WAS as good a display as was possible under the eircum- s, ances.
