THE CANN SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 April 1914
THE CANN: SHOW Tqhe Cann Riper Slhow, hed on March. 24; proved a great' success. Althougli. the weather previous to the show had: been very dry entries- came in very freely and a record entry was received for the shed events. Heavy rain for a couple of days preceding the show did not help to improve matters, but as it remained fine during most of the early part of the day the public turned out very well. A great many peo6ipl arrived from Orbost., Genoa, and other surroundiing districts, and Cann River accommodation was taxed to its utmost. As the rain had made the ground very slippery the ring events (post entry) did not fill as well as in other years, but despite the state of the ground the jumping wnas very good. The high jump proved quite a triumph for our local horses. ' As the bar was raised each time the crowd would say "He is sure to slip this time." IMr J. McKinnon's well-known hunter, Sampson, did one or two very clever leaps more to be expected from a cat than a horse. Eve...
