DIAMOND CREEK SHOW NO FRUIT EXHIBITS. HORSE JUDGE . INJURED Record Entry Of Cookery And Preserves With the temperature soaring well over the century Dia-l mond Creek Horticultural Society held their 56th Annual Show on Saturday. As might have been expected, in view of the Society's de cision to exclude the fruit section, the entries were far below those of other years and this affected the financial result of the Show. On the other hand this was counteracted to some extent by the generous action of some of the successful exhibitors in the sections which were held and in the arena events in hand ing their prize money back to the committee as donations. The Show was officially opened by Mr. W. H. Everard, M.L.A., at the official luncheon, and he was supported by Mr. Angliss, M.H.R., the Mayor of Heidelberg (Councillor J. Ryan), and the President of the Show Committee (Mr. G. G: Miller). Entries in the cooking and preserves sections were a record, but the flow ers and vegetables were l...
