..--MACHYNLLETH ANNUALI AGRICULTURAL…
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.

THE TOWN BAND journeyed to Barmouth on Saturday, where they had been specially invited to perform. Excellent arrangements had been made for their comfort in travelling by the oourteous local agent of the Cambrian Railways-Mr Thos. Pryce. Barmouth was reached soon after 8 o'clock, and the town was roused by the playing of a stirring march Breakfast having been disposed of, and time allowed for digestion, a recital of popular and classical music was given on the Marine terrace, to the evident sat- isfaction of visitors and natives, several items being loudly applauded. In the afternoon, another pro- gramme was rendered, to a larger audience, whose appreciation was even more marked than at the previous performance. The plsying of the Band also received high praise from some eminent musicians who are visiting Barmonth. The Band reached home safely by the mail train, highly pleased with their day's out.

Mr William Cooke (chairman) presided, and there were also present Messrs A. Ford and J. Humphreys, with Mr Fred R. Lloyd (deputy-clerk). A letter was read from Mr G. H. Bell, applying for the use of the schoolroom for band practice, and the Board decided to grant him permission on the usual terms.—A letter was also read from Messrs Saer and Wall, stating that they were desirous of starting evening classes to benefit the boys and youths of the town, which would save them from occupying their time in other useless pursuits. They thought that one large school would be more efficient and popular than two classes, so the writers had agreed to work together instead of keeping up two classes. They would either except a fixed salary as remuneration, or the fees and grant.—The members thought the subject needed consideration, and it was decided to adjourn the matter till the next meeting of the Board.—Requisitions were received from Messrs Griffiths and Saer and the Misses M. and S. Dolgarno, and were referred to Mr Willian Cooke.-Cheques were signed for salaries, and in favour of Mr D. Pryce and the Public Loan Board.

WELSHPOOL. CHORAL. On Friday evening last, at tLe Council Chamber, Town Hall, the representatives of the United and Powis Choirs met to take into considera- tion the desirability of amalgamating bcth choirs. Among those present were the Rev T. Rowson, in the chair, Mr T. M. Price, Mr E. R. Hughes, Mr Robert Owen, Mr Frank H. Shayler, Mr J. Whittal, Mr A. Gardiner, Mr J. Humphreys, Mr D. P. Jones, Mr S. Price, Mr C. Williams, —- Quilliam, etc. The mem- bers of the Powis Choir were strongly in favour of amalgamation, but the representatives of the older choir objected to this form, but heartily invited the Powis Choir to join with them. One reason assigned was that their committee being elected annually in May could not until then. be altered. We are given to understand that each choir will remain as at pre- sent, and practices will commence shortly for coming concerts. SERIOUS TRAP AcCIDENT.-On Monday about mid-day a serious accident took place in Waterloo, Salop-road. Mr John Jones of Manor House, Pool Q.ay' accompanied by Mr Lodge of Northampton, was driving home in a gig. Near the Grapes Inn be was overtaken by Mr and Mrs Breeze, and Mr Breeze jun., of Birchill, Halfway House, ",ho were in a light cart, the horse attached to which took fright and dashed forward at a rapid rate. Before Mr Jones could make way for them to pass the wheel of the last trap overtook that of the first and both conveyances were overturned and the five occu- pants pitched out. Mr Jones was bruised on the arm and cut on the hand by the fall, and Mr Lodge escaped with a severe shaking. Their horse turned back for the town and trotted up for the Pheasant Inn, where his career was checked by the trap becom- ing entangled in some carts at the side of the road. The occupants of the other trap were not so fortu- nate. Mr Breeze, jun., was pitched on his head, and received a nasty wound on the side of hIS temple. His father held to the reins and was dragged along the road for some distance, but escaped with a shak- ing. Mrs Breeze fell with great force on the ruad, and was taken to Mrs Humphrey's grocer and confec- tioner, High-street. Drs. Gill and Marston were quickly in attendance, and it was found that her left thigh was broken, and that she was badly crushed on the back and wrist, and had received a xerious wound' on the side of the head. She is progressing as satis- faotorily as can be expected.

TEBQYNON. RESTORATION OF THE CHURCH.—On Friday evening, the 18th inst, a meeting was held in the Schoolroom to consider what steps should be taken to carry on the restoration of the parish church which Lord Sudeley had commenced, but which, owiiati to circumstances arising, which is deeply and widely deplored, his loidship is unable to complete. The Rev. W Vaughau Jones, Rector, occupied the chair, and read the notice conveying the meeting, and called upon Mr W. S. Owen, Cefngwifad, iuto whose hands the work had hitherto been entrusted, tc report as to the state of the funds. It was shown that about .£700 had already been expended, and that about J £ 450 more was lequirad to finish the contemplated restora- tion and wnich must be raised by subscription. It was unanimously resolved that au appeal be made by means of circulars to the friends of the church, and that local collectors be appointed to oanvass the parish for subscriptions, and that the work of restor- i ig the church be proceeded with forthwith. A com- mittee was appointed, consisting of the Keotor, churchwardens. Messrs. W. Scott-Owen, Richard Jones, and Wiilinm Gittins, and a small committee to superintend the work, consisting of Messrs W. Scott-Owen, Richard Jones and Henry Corfield. The Rector was appointed Secretary, and Mr W. S. Owen, Treasurer. The following suais were promised in the room. Rev W. Vaughan Jones, i220, Mr W. Soo t-Owen, X20, Mr William Gittina, Hafodtalog XIO, Mr William Corfield £ 9, and Mr B. H. Pbiliips .£3, and in case cash should be required for payments before the subscriptions come in, Mr William Gittina o offered to lend .£100 free of interest and Mr W. Cor- field and B. H. Phillips (chui chwirdens) offered to go joint security for Xioo, if necessary. It ia hoped that the appeal for fnnds to complete the much needed work of restoriug this ancieut parish church (which dates from probably the 13ch century) will meet with a generous response.

SHREWSBURY CORN MARKET, SATURDAY—Al- though harvest in the district is now practically finished, the supply of new graIn upon our markets during the past week has been very small. There seems to be a general determination on the part of Farmers to avoid thrashing more wheat than they are obliged to at the present ruinous prices. A few lots of thrashed barley have been offered, but Malsters have not yet commenced to bay. As far as we have gone we notice a great variation in quality. Oats have continued to come out in good condition. Flour has been extremely dull. Offalo have moved freely, and Millers are behind with their deliveries. Our market here to-day was thinly attended. Very little wheat was offered, and last week's prices were repeated.—Quotations.—Old white wheat 49 Od to 4 2d per 75tbs; new white wheat 3s lOd to 48 Od per 751bs; old red wheat 3a lOd to 4a Od per 751bs; new red wheat 3s 10 to 4s Od per 751bs; old oats 16s 6d to 18s 6d per 2251bs; new oats 13a Od to 14a Od per 2251bs old peas 15s Od to 168 Od per 2251bs old beans 15s 6d to 16s 6d per 2401ba.- W.
