MACHYNLLETH ANNUAL I AGRICULTURAL £ HORTICULTURAL The sixth annual show was held in Plas Machyn- SHOW. lleth grounds on Friday, uoder very favourable cir- cumstances. Very large numbers attended, and the show was regarded as a great success. The entries in the different classes were more numerous, and if anything the exhibits were of a better quality. Lord Henry Vane Tempest is the president of the society, and Mr Sackville Phelps Rowlands, vice-president. The post of secretary was ably filled by Mr Thomas Lloyd. Refreshments were supplied upon the ground, and this year the ladies of the Machynlleth branch of the North Wales Women's Temperance Union introduced quite a new feature into the proceedings. The absence of a neat and respectable tea tent at various local events held during the year has often been commented upon, and the friends of temperai ce have to a great extent being held responsible but it was a pleasure to notice that ample provision had been made at this show. A neatly arranged tent was under the supervision of Mrs Ffoulkes Jones, presi- dent of the aociety, and Miss Catherine Pugh, secre- tary, who were assisted by a large number of ladies, and instead of the orthodox bar there were email tables placed at intervals at which a p,rty of four or more could conveniently take tea. The experiment was a success, and deserves to re- ceive the attention of Good Templars in all parts of the country.

THE FLOWERS, ETC. were arranged in a large tent and attracted a good deal of attention. Amongst the special exhibits were those of Messrs Dickson and Sons, Chester, who had a stall of some very fine helianthus, gladio- les of various shades, dahlias, etc. Messrs Clibran and Sens, Altrincham (represented by Mr Lewis, Arthog, Dolgelley) exhibited a splendid assortment of apples, for which they were awarded a special cer- tificate of merit. They also showed some exceptionally fine tomatoes, which bad on the previous day ob- tained first prize at Shrewsbury. The competition among the cottagers' exhibits was a very close one, and the large and varied assortment of apples on the øtalh clearly proved that they could be grown as well in that district aa anywhere else. Melons were a good feature, but some of them had been left to long and had gone beyond table use. Carrots were very clean and remarkaby free from canker, and the horn variety of carrots were never better. Onions, pars- nips, and roots were very good and sound. Some excellent samples of grain were exhibited, and the first prize was taken by Mr W. Rees, Dovey Valley Hotel. Altogether the competition for vegetables and roots waa very .good and a complete success. A root of Indian corn grown at Glaseoed Cottage, Machynlleth, attracted a good deal of attention. HORSES, CATTLE, SHEEP, ETC. There was a fair number of horses entered for com- Sedition, but they were not altogether satisfactory. hire horses and stallions stood out prominently, and were the best feature of this part of the Show. Cattle was a very small lot. but very good quality for the country. The joow that took first prize was an exceptionally good one, but the judges would have preferred it being a little better about the loins. There were some very good ewes among the sheep, which were quite up to the standard of last year. Not so many entered as last year, and this was accounted for by the fact that the farmers were bnay in the harvest. It is rather surprising .that the farmers of the district do not take a greater interest in the show by sending more stock for competition. The dogs were a good class, but there was not so many smooth terriers as last year, although the quality was far better. A larger number of setters were on show, and better samples. AmonF the rough terriers there was a defioiency in quality ao compared with last year. There were very few entries in the poultry division considering the many natural advantages the people in the neighbourhood possess for the rearing of fowls and ducks, and the competitions waa not as good as they ought to have been. The horse leaping attracted considerable attention, and "Comet," a horse the property of Mr Jerome, of Birmingham, was beaten by Mr A. O. Davies, Machynlleth. THE LUNCHEON took place in a tent on the ground, and was presided over by the Lord Henry Vane Tempest, who was aupported by Mr Vaughan Davies, Mr Owen Slaney Wynn, etc. After the loyal toasts had been proposed and duly honoured his LORDSHIP rose, amid applause, to pro- pose the health of the Judges, who had so kindly consented to come and give their decision on the exhibits that day (hear, hear). They had come at great inconvenience, and he was sure that they had done justice to all competitors, and be knew that they would agree with him that they could not find more honest judges than those they had with them that day (applause). Mr OWEN .SLANEY WYNN, in responding, said that he thanked Lord Henry for the kind way in which he had spoken of the judges. It was always a pleasure for him to come down to Machynlleth, where he met so many of those he knew in days gone past, And where happy days were recalled (applause), The judges no doubt did their best in judging between the merits of the different animals for competition. Referring to the kindness of the Dewager Marchioness of Londonderry, he said that her ladyship had the interests of the town at heart, and there was no greater benefactress to a town than was her ladyship to Machynlleth (applause). The Noble CHAIRMAN, in responding, said that her ladyship was at all times moat pleased to do anything to assist the local movements. She exhibited stock herself, and had taken some prizes (applause). Mr VAUGHAN DAVIES said that he rose to propose the toast of Success to the Show. He thought the farmers during the present agricultural depression should rally around each other at those shows, and by their united efforts help to fight the great struggle. But he was glad to observe that there was no falling off in the show as compared with previous years. There were some most excellent roots on exhibition, and the best he had seen for many years. He was very much surprised to see such very good cart horses in the neighbourhood. At one time Mont gomer)- shire held a very good name in Wales for cart horses; but some years ago she almost lost that reputation. However, that day, there were aome excellent cart horses and cart mares on exhibit, which he felt were a credit to the agriculturists of the district (applau3e). He was much struck by a black bull calf amongst the cattle, and he felt con. vinced that it would lay the foundation of a sure jBtock-getter for the future (applause). The CHAIRMAN, as president, responded to the toast, and said that he was of opinion that the show was as good as any held previously (hear, hear). ;lr E. J. OWBN proposed the health of the Presi- dent, wiiicii Wfw duly drank and acknowledged by Lord HENRY. The comdany then rose. t CLASS A.
