FLINT AND DENBIGH SHOW SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION AT MOLD. NEXT YEAR'S VENUE NOT YET SELECTED. Though the show held to-day week, at Mold, under the auspices of the Flintshire and Denbighshire Agricultural Society was not up to the level attained at Colwyn Bay, twelve months ago, in points of entries, it was on the whole a thoroughly successful exhibition. The entries were fewer by 42 only, 183G, compared with 1878 at Colwyn Bay, and it was most satisfactory to hnd that the decrease had not taken place on the essentially agricultural side, the fall- ing oil being most marked in the classes r poultry, dogs, and pigeons. In tact, the cattle classes attracted a record entry, whilst the entries in the classes for sheep, horses, arid rigs were well up to average iof recent years. The western end of Denbighshire was of course inueh less in evidence in the com- petitions this year, nevertheless some credit- able victories were won by Mr R. E. Birch, Colwyn Bay; Mr Thomas Williams, Den- bigh" Mrs "C. Lloyd, do. the Bodrhyddan Horne Farm; Mr R. J. Dav0;, Abergele; and Mr John G. Gratton, do.

At the annual meeting, Mr Buddicom pre- sided, and among others present were Mr J. Eldon Bankes, K.C., Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., Mr P. 1'. Pennant, Colonel Mcsham, Colonel Mainwaring, Major Birch, Captain Cole, Messrs E. Webster, T. James, Peter Roberts (Biomiieid;, J. W yune Williams, T. M. Keene, Colonel Howard, R. E. Jones, R. Morris, Frank Lloyd (Wrexham; John Wat kin, Mur- less (Wrexham), C. P. Sheffield (ido.d), A. E. Evans (Wrexham), etc. The chief business was to select the site ofn-e-xt year's show. The Secretary said they had endeavoured to come to terms" with Den- bigh, but had failed. They had since ap- proached Wrexham, but they had a rival there in the Welsh National fchow. The Wrexham Town Council had consulted the Farmers' ion, and the latter had un- animously decided to recommend that the Denbigh and Flint Show be invited, to Wrex- ham in lUll. Mr Murless explained that the Town Coun- cil felt they were under a promise to invito th,e Welsh National Society to Wrexham during the coming year, but in saying this he was not speaking in an official capacity, lie hoped that notning would be done un- less there was an invitation to that Society from the Town Council. On the proposition of the President it was decided to defer the question until the October meeting, and that in the meantime the fcociety's representatives meet the Wrex- ham Council and endeavour to come to some arrangement. MR HERBERT LEWIS, M.P., ON THE ESSENTIALS OF A SHOW. At the luncheon Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., proposed Success to the Denbighshire and Flintshire Agricultural Society. He re- marked that three essentials of a good show werct—good men at the helm, a smiling sky to attract as many visitors as possible, and a record number of exhibitors. He congratu- lated the Society upon having all these factors that day (hear, hear). The Society, however, did not exist for the purposes of the show only. It existed in order to de- velop agriculture, and however great might be the pride of the prize winners and the de- light of tho visitors, these were not the only objects of the Society. He hoped the Society would continue to flourish, so that agriculture in that county and the adjoin- ing county of Denbigh might be improved. He trusted the Society would fulfil to the uttermost those high hopes which they enter- tained of its future (applause). In responding. Mr Pennant (chairman of the Finance Committee), said the Society he.d that day put forth its whole strength in a most marvellous way. He was not express- ing his own opinion, but the opinion of ex- perts when he said that the show that day waa most excellent (hear, hear). Their standard of agricultural shows at tho pre- sent time was rather exalted, because it was only -a few weeks ago that they had the great •Royal Show within a comparatively short distance from that place. It was most satis- factory that they should have such a. large number of excellent exhibits on the ground, and that there should be such large num- bers of agriculturists and others present to look at those exhibits (hear, hear). As Mr Lewis had that Society existed for the promotion of agriculture, and he had not the slightest hesitation in saying that the Society had thoroughly succeeded in carrying out this object by showing farmers the char- acter of the stock they ought to possess (hear, hear). "The President" was proposed by Mr T. M. Keene, and was suitably acknowledged by Mr Buddicom.
