He had seen the rise and nrotrress of the dis trict, and nothing gave him greater pleasure than * to notice the vast strides Casino had taken of late years. At the show there were-i less. than 596 individual exhibitors iu dairy stock. What a magnificent testimony that was to the value of the district herds and the spirit of the people. He remembered the time when Casino did not boast of a dairy cow that was fit to drive into a show ring. To-day he saw cattle which, in his humble opinion, compared with the finest stock that the South Coast of New South Wales could produce. The quality of the hundreds of stock in this show was a tribute to enterprise of Itichmond River fartn^^H era, and a sign that this part of the N...
