BATH AND WEST OF ENGLAND SHOW. The annual Show of the Bath and West and Southern Counties Agricultural Society, which was established over a century ago, was opened on Wednesday at St. Albans. The entries are larger than those of any previous year, and the quality of the exhibits in most of the sections is very high. The Lord Mayor and Sheriffs of London visit ed the show in state" yesterday, and to-day there is sure to be a big attendance to welcome the Prince and Princess of Wales, their two daughters, and their son-in-law in prospect, Prince Charles of Denmark. The show is acknowledged to be a grand success in every department. Of Ilerefords there are 48 representatives in seven classes, and among the exhibits are many of the best- known winners and a few youngsters of high promise. '• Prince Bulbo," which belongs to Mr J. H. Arkwright, of Leominster, is first in the aged bulls class, beating Lord Coventry's Courtier," as he did at tho Oxfordshire Show a week ago. Another Leominster breeder, Mr E. Yeld, heads the two-year-old bulls with Royal Hero," beating Mr Arkwright's "Red Cross." There are several beasts of abnormal merit among the yearlings. Mr R. Green, of Kington, carried off the first prize, and Mr J. H. Arkwright and Mr J. Price, uf Pembridge, respectively second and third. In this breed the younger female stock is of exceed- ingly high quality. Mr Green's noted "Sister Perilla" ran away from all the other competitors in the senior heifer class. She won prizes last year at the Bath and West Show at Taunton, and the Roval Show at Darlington. A daughter of the noted Lead On won first place for Mr Yeld in a good class of yearlings, and beat Mr Hughes's Bountiful," a wonderfully well-bred little boast. The most important feature of the sheep depart- ment is the magnificent collection of Shropshires. In the three classes there are between sixty andjseventy entries, and not only is the competition very severe, but the general excellence in the quality of the animals is very high. Thirty- three shearlina" rams are entered, the first prize going to Mrs Odstoue Hall, Atherstone, who shows a ram with a capital head and good fleece. Mr J. Bowen-Jones, Montford Bridge, comes cext with a big upstanding sheep; a well-grown animal takes the third prize for Mr A. E. Mansell, Harring- ton Hall; and Mr W. F. Inge, Thorpe Hall, is fourth with a very good representative. Mr Man- sell is more successful in the class for ram lambs, winning first-prize with a pair of good-charactered sheep. One of the best pens of shearling ewes seen in a showyard is that exhibited by Mr W. F. Inge, and which secures tho first prize in a very creditable class. The second award is given to Mrs Barrs, the third to Mr J. Bowen-Jones.
