KERRY & LLANMEREWIG SUMMER FESTIYAL- The second annual show of flowers, fruit, and vegetables, was held on Saturday. The weather was fine, and the event was large;y patronised, large quantities of people coming from Newtown and Welshpool. The exhibits were placed in a large marquee, supplied by Mr J hn Pilot, of Newtown, in Maesyllan field, a picturesque spot, surrounded by lofty hills, the slopes of which were beautifully wooded. The flowers and fruit show was good, but by far the best feature was the exhibition of vegetables, Many of the prizes in the cottagers' class were keenly contested for, and Messrs J. S. Price, J. Evans, J. Edwards, and W. Trow de-erve considerable praise for their exhibits, and fully deserve-i the distinctions they gained. Noticeable amongst thy prize winners was P.C. Owen, of Kerry, who is evidently not oi ly an expert in catching evil-doers, but has proved his ability and knowledge in gardenia^.
