The fourth annual flower show under the auspices of the Llanharran, Peterston-super- Montem, Pencoed, Llanilid, and Llanharry Horticultural Society, which was held on Bank Holiday proved a great success, not- withstanding the many counter-attractions in the district. The event was held in the picturesquely situated cricket field, kindly lent by Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins, of Llanliarran House. The exhibits, which were more numerous than on any previous occasion, i were staged in a spacious marquee, and a fine appearance was presented. The quality of the produce was of a high standard, and elicited much praise from the judges. The show of flowers was exceedingly fine, and Messrs. Cooke and Sons, Bridgend, had a show display which was staged at the en- trance to the marquee. Last velar an eis- teddfod was held in connection with the show but it did not justify the committee's depar- ture, and this year no eisteddfodic pro- gramme was arranged. The committee, however, followed the Cowbridge and Dis- trict Horticultural Society in instituting a poultry and pigeon section. The entries in this department were fewer than had been expected, a good many classes having to be cancelled. During the afternoon an excel- lent programme was executed by the Blaen- garw Brass Band, and an enjoyable feature of the afternoon's proceedings was the im- promptu sports. This year's presidents of the society are Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins and Mr. T. J. Masters, of Lanelay Hall. The judges were: Vegetables, Mr. T. Beynon (head gardener at Lanelay Hall) and Mr. Carter. Miskin farm produce, poultry, etc.. Mrs. Morgan, St. Mary Church, and Miss John. Pencoecl; pigeons. Mr. E. W. Davies. Cowbridge; live poultry. Miss N. Edwards. Gloucester. The duties of secretary were en- trusted to Mr. D. Harvey (stationmaster). Mrs. J. Blandy Jenkins is the treasurer of the society, Mr. J. Smith chairman of the committee, and Mr. A. J. Jenks vice-chair- man. the other members including Messrs. W. Hughes. H. Webber. T. Sedgebeer, E. Thomas, W. Morgan. D. E. Davies, J. Preece, M. Llovd, S. Gronow, F. Ball, G. Trotman, E. John. Chas.

LLANTWIT COTTAGERS' SHOW. The first annual cottagers' flower show for Llantwit Major and district was held on Bank Holiday in a field kindly lent by Mr. Alfred Evans. This innovation is mainly due to the energetic action of Mrs. John Williams, Ivy House, one of the managers of the lo.-al Council Schools. For the past few- years there has been a desire on the part of the inhabitants of Llantwit for a local show of the kind and the results of the first at- tempt have been in every way satisfactory. The president on this first occasion was Mr. Utyd JL>. Nickoii. J.P.. i'he riam. and the vice-president \3 -,Ü Yi-.tior Crawshay, J.P., Dimlands. Among the patrons were Mr. W. Abraham, M.P., Miss Wyndham Lewis Boverton; Mrs. Lewis, Gilcston Manor; the Misses Williams, St. Donat's Castle; and many others. There was a good committee of gentlemen, and a committee of ladies who superintended at the refreshment stalls. The hon. treasurer was Mr E. T. Lloyd, West House, and the hon. secretaries were Mrs. John Williams Ivy House, and Mr. Rees Morgan, East-street. The schedule of prizes was small but well arranged, consisting of forty-seven competitions, ranging in first, second, and third prizes, together with special prizes open to all comers. During the day the Rhondda United Orchestral So- ciety's String Band, under the conductorship of Mr. Smith, son-in-law to Mr. W. Abra- ham, M.P., provided an excellent programme and in the evening a concert was held in the show pavilion. Both in the afternoon and evening the large attendance proved the popularity of the venture. It is hoped that the present committee, under the presidency of Parish Councillor John Williams, will be strongly augmented, and greater publicity will be given to the scheme which has been so excellently inaugurated by Mrs. John Wil- liams and Mr. Rees Morgan. The judges were Mr. Treseder, Cardiff, and Mr. Milner Margam. Mr. Treseder's stand of flowers. ferns, and handsome floral designs, and the fine show of flowers sent by Air. Cooke, Bridg- end, were much admired. Certificates of merit were awarded for collections of flowers fruits, and vegetables exhibited by Mrs. Greaves, Tresillian Mr. Richard Price, The Hayes; Miss Wyndham Lewis, Orchard House: Mr. Iltyd B. Nicholl. The Ham; Mr. Tudor Crawshay, Dimlands: Mrs. E. T. Lloyd. West House; and Mr. W. H. Evans Llanmaes. The awards were as follows:- COTTAGERS' CLASSES. Pansies: 1, Miss E. Watts; 2, Rev.

Weather and the Crops. The splendid v.-eat her of July has done great things for the crops, and the change in the aspect of the fields since May is a trans- formation scene beyond that which the most sanguine could have ventured to believe pos- sible. The wheat crop had tillered well, was regular if backward, and covered the ground well, but the barley and oats on June 1st looked as unpromising as we ever remem- bered seeing them. The change from that appearance to the look of these crops on August 1st will be a fortunate memory for all farmers for many years to come, as they will feel that a most clicouraging outlook at the end of May is capable of a truly wonderful amelioration as the result of two successive Dlood months. The first whentfields which ve saw this year invaded by the self-finding larvester were near Uxbridge, Middlesex, md the day was August 1st. Several jarmers had commenced the wheat harvest in Hertfordshire on July 30th, and in Thanet vheat cutting was in full progress on the 2nd nst. on three or four adjacent farms. Thus jhe ingathering of the great wheat crops is fully started.-From Monday's "Mark-lane Express."
A PETKOL TORPEDO-BOAT. A torpedo-boat that can be font on hy rail to <he port v. h.'ve it is most required opens up pos- (ibilities which naval experts have never con- fcmiplated. On Monday morning the King wit- nessed a trial of the new motor Yarrow torpedo- b)at, one of the most extraordinary vessels that hive ever been placed on the Navv List. The idea of a boat drawing little water and ctpable of being navigated in shallow waters o'iginated with the Admiralty, who approved of tie scheme to make these ve-eh propelled by internal eombu.-tion in preference to steam. The new vessel carries two torpedoes, weighs 8 tons, and measures 60ft. in length and 9ft. in bi,eadth. Her horse-power is 300, and the ad- vtntage the petrol craft has over steam may be gauged from the fact that her range of effective- n(ss—i.e., the distance she can go without re- charging—is 600 miles, as against a steam ves- sels 10C. Apart from her enormous value as a method of river defence, there is a novel in- te'est in the possibility of torpedo-boats by pest."
WORKMEN'S ESCAPE FROM DEATH. Two workmen ha.ve had a. marvellous escape from death at Staten Island. While engaged upon the top of a chimney, 150ft. from the ground, the scaffolding collapsed and fell, leav- ing the men on a narrow ledge inside. They shouted for help, and tearing their clothing into ehteds made a rope and lowered it through the det>ris to their comrades below. A rope was at- tached, and they drew it up, dropping one end over the edge of the shaft until it reached the ground outside. Then, perfectly nude, they cliir.bed up, and slipped down the cable to the ground. Their palms were torn owing to the speed at which they descended, but they euf tainid no other injury.
HORSE SHOW AT ABERAVON. j The fifth annual Aberavon and Port Talbot I Horse Show was held on Monday on the Football Field. The show this year attained a much higher status than in previous years, as, in addition to the local classes, valuable prizes were offered for open competition, and this innovation was well justified. During the morning, which turned out beautifully fine, the local classes paraded the town and made a very imposing spectacle, headed by the band of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Welsh Regiment (conducted by Mr. Charles Yowles). liiere was a record attendance. During the afternoon Miss Talbot drove to the show field in her motor-car and presented the winners of the championship classes with the silver cups.

ENCOURAGMENT FOR BRIDGEND. This is encouraging news we receive from a resident in Bridgend. I stand by all I said for Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, over three years ago," says Mrs J. Burnett, Craig Cottage, Union-road, Bridgend. I was a great sufferer before I used the Pills, but they did me a lot of good, and I have been better ever since. I always keep some of the pills by me, for I think there is no medicine like them." The following is what Mrs. Burnett told us some years ago —" For eight years before taking Doan's Backache Kidney Pills I didn't know what it was to be free from pain. I was a great sufferer from kidney trouble, and my back was so bad whenever I stooped that I could not get straight for some time. I. suffered also from indigestion and bilious- ness. I was almost afraid to eat because of the pain it caused in my chest. My sight grew dim, and little specks seemed to be floating before my eyes. There were shoot- ing pains in my back, and gnawing pains round the hips. I was under the doctor's treatment, but I didn't get any better. Hearing of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, I made up my mind to try them, and with the use of the medicine my health gradually improved. The medicine has quite cured me now, and I am well in every way again." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shil- lings and ninepence per box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and nintpence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8 Wells-street. Oxford- street, London, W. Do not forget to use the full name, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.
