Abergavenny Hoi-se Show. I The Abergavenny Horse Show celebrated its sixtieth anniversary at Bailey Park on Thursday. "Mr James Straker, this year's mayor of Aberga- venny, has occupied the secretarial position for 32 years, and has done good, consistent work all the way through. Mr W. L. Thomas, of Tredillion Park, is the president for the year. The show on Thursday was favoured with excel- lent weather, and by the afternoon, when the jump. ing and driving trials came on, there was a very good attendance of spectators. The Oyfarthfa Band (Mr G. F. Livsey, Conductor) played during the day. As to the show in volume, there was in some respects a falling off in entries. This was most marked in the sheep department. The dipping re- strictions operated prejudicially. There was also a slight falling off in the number of cattle, but in horses. which form the staple feature of the show, there was an exhibition considerably above the aver- age, nags and carters being espeeially prominent. The cart mare and foal class for the Marquess of Abergavenny's prize was so large that all the en- trants could not be accommodated in the ring at one time. There was a very good lot of heavy-weight hunters, and farmers' horses were a fairly good class. In cattle, the Here fords were, of coarse, far more numerous than the Shorthorns. In timbering, which has become a popular feature •in the show, there was a much larger entry than before. I Local prize.takers- — HOE5E3.
