FLOWER SHOWS. I ——♦ —— HELSBY. I Tlie -fifteenth annual sports and flower show in connectiati with the Athlet-io Ciub took place on Saturday. Being fav-oured with flue wea- ther, tho event was again a distinct success. About 2,000 spectators witnessed too sports, while a la: ge number visited the show. Al- though there was a slight falling off in the show entries, the quality of tho exhibits was iu most cases of an excellent character. In both the cottagers' and open classes there was a splendid disp!ay of blaok and rod curtaato, raspberries and gooseberries, some of which were abnormally largo, while oberries, though small in entry, were exceptionally fin. Apples and pears were both small Pit number of entry and below tho usual standard in size and quality, due. no doubt, to the Lateness of the season. In tho cottagers' section of vegetables there were some excellent exhibits of onions, shallots, broad beana, peas and potatoes, the latter being particularly good. The oompeti- tion in vegetables in the open oiass was also very keen. some exceptionally good stuff being shewn. The display of herbaceous flowers was not quite up to last year's, but the groups of plants were a grand lot. Mr. R. Hermon, who has usually been a most suooeesful exhibitor in carnations. pansiee, violas, herbaceous flowers and roses, did not compete this year, with the result that the display in these floweis was not up to the usual standard. Sweet peas were very strong in both classes; iu fact, the display was "to of the features of tho show. The col- lection of fuchsias and fems were also dis- tinctly good The table decoration class, always one of the most attraotivs features of the show, was quite its popular as ever. Miss M. L. Biandreth won tho piOtuior prizo with a most tasteful arrangement of as- paragus, springa-i and gysophela; Mrs. H. Wood the second prize with a.n effective dis- play of poppies; and Mrs. Brotherton the third prize with a pietty arrangement of sweet peas. Tho competition among the children in the coilection of wild flowers was, as usual, very keen, and some excellent bunches and collec- tions of twelve distinct specks of those were shewn. In the honey section, owing to the bad I season, tho ent.ry was not a strong one, but the quality of both the extracted a.nd comb honoy was on the whole very good Mr. H. Browuhill. of tho Rose Nurseries, Barrow and Sale, had. as usual, a very choice collection of roses and herbaceous plants. The Toogood sil- ver championship challengo shield and certifi- cate of excellence in horticulture, presented by Messrs. Toogood and Sons, of Southampton. was won by Mr. H. G ask ell, Nethertou (gar- dener, Mr. A. Oarr); and the Toogood bronzo championship challenge shield and certificate of excellence in horticulture by Mr. J. Chorl- ton, Bridge Trafford. The whole of the arrange- ments for the show were excellent, and were dive to the untiring efforts of the hon. secre- tary (Mr. J. M. Ham&ntMi) and the assistant secretary :md treasurer (Mr. J.

BEAUTIFUL EXHIBITION The 32nd exhibition of the Rossett, Greeford, | Pulford and Dodlestori Horticultural Society took place on Friday sit Trevalyan Hall Park. Tho exhibits, staged in three marquees, pre- sented a pleasing appearanoe, particularly the floral section, which appeared more than usually strong. The entries, we believe, create a new record, and for the first time the usual two marquees were insufficient. Favoured by fine weather, tho show was largely attended, and must be regarded as a great success. There was an excellent display in all departments, although tlie vegetable ctaseu were not so strong as usual. The cottagera' marquee contained several inter- esting exhibits, a high standard of quality generally being reached, particularly among th-a vegetables, where the potatoes and the onions were special feafcurew. The flowers were not quite so interesting, and although there was a brave display of sweet peas, they seemed to reach scarcely the standard of other years. Com- petitors in the other classes wore in a better position, of course, to produce liigh-class blooms, and one can speak only in tbo highest admiration of the beautiful display there. The principal feature of the show was the claet) for groups of plants arranged for effect. The competition was as keen as usual, and tho judges spent throe- quarters of an hour in deciding between the first and second Mr. Alfred Ashworth secured the honours, having staged an excellent exhibit, which included palms, carnations, fuschias, petunias, gloxineas, crotons, etc Mr. J. W. Summers's group was a very close second, some of the plants use d being gloxineas, petunias, palms, crotons, caladiurris, liliums, etc. Near by were some cxctllent, exhibits of stove and green- house plants, and there was a beautiful display of fuwchias. The show of ferns was a great advance on previous years, better plants never having been seen at ltow.-tt. The table decora- tions occupied the centre of the smallest of the marquees, and were most attractive. All the competitors had shewn such excellent taste, that it was a matter of great difficulty to select the prize winners. Muss Allington Hughes gained the coveted position with a light and pretty arrangement of sweet peas and grasses and maidenhair fern. Mrs. Robertson, who was second, made chief use of the crimson rambler rose. There was very keen competition in the collection of vegetables class, and Mr. Robert- son won by only one point. Only one oollection of fruit wad entered, namely, by Mr. J. T. Sykes, but his exhibit contained some really fine speci- mens Herbaceous flowers were also excellent, while the sweet peas in the gardeners' and amateurs' sections were among the best features of tho show. TImj prizert were distributed by Lady Margaret Cholmondeley. Mr. T. Griffith- Boscawen presided, ami among those on the platform were Lady Savage Mort.yn. Mr. Alfred Ashworth, the Mayor of Wrexham (Mr. Edward Hughes). Mr. E. Babb (the energetic sectary), etc. The following were the ju<;ov. Messrs. N. F.
