Blacks were badlyrepresented (we mean blact game fowls). Black reds, what there was of them, were good. Two entries in each class was about the average. The white Leghorns were very fine, as was a pair of White Cochins, shown by Mr. M. Savage. W. H. Tuckwell, jun., showed some good dark Brahmas.

SECTION 5.— VEGETABLES. He spread his vegetable store. —Goldsmith If Goldsmith had been at the show on Monday, he would possibly have revised that line of his after he had seen the vegetable display, and qualified it thusly : He spread his vegetable store, But it wasn't up to much ! To tell the truth (and our orders are 'always to tell the truth,' in opposition to Some of our contemporaries) the vegetables were very poor indeed. There was little and in some classes no competition. Mr. William Fagan was tho only exhibitor in the general collec tion, which comprised 14 varieties, in cluding pie, iron bark, preserving and Bio pumpkins, potatoes, turnips, melons, and cabbage. None of the exhibits call for special mention. Mr. F. H. G. Eogers showed some very good pre serving melons. The tomatoes shown by Mr. Fagan were small, but very fair considering the season. The best ex hibit under this heading was in the non-competitive, in the name of Mr. J. W. Foster, of Castle Hill. . He showed...

SECTION VI.— FRUIT (and Flowers.) Gardens of golden fruit that had not robbed Tho glittering foliage of rich-scented bloom, And tapering bunches of thich-clustoring beads Which seemed to look tho suushino in their veins. — Austin. Your voicelsess lips, O Flowers, are loving preachers, Each cup a pulpit, every leaf a book. — jr. Smith. All things considered, the fruitdisplay was very fair, although few exhibits woro up to show standard. It has to be calculated, however, that the season is very late, and that the past year or so has been decidedly averse to fruit grow ing. The display was not to be com pared to the exposition at the Cumber land Akgus Fruit Show last February, which would not have been beaten anywhere, and it is a pity that tho county should be called upon to make a display of its staplo industry at such an inojiportune timo of the year. The best exhibits under this heading were the dessert apples shown by Messrs. AV. H. Allen and D. G. High, of Castlo Hill. Both showe...
