The second annual exhibition in connection with the Ashburton Poultry, Pigeon, and Canary Society commenced to-day at the Town Hall. The weather was not quite so bright and sunny as that experienced of late, but the attractions of the show proved sufficient to draw a number of visitors from places beyond Ashburton or the district, while the attendance of townspeople was of course large. On entering the hall, the visitor is at once struck with the number and variety of the exhibits, and as his eye wanders round the long lines of cages his ears are bewildered with the mingled crowing of cocks, cooing of pigeons, and the soft piping of canaries and other feathered songsters. The total number of exhibits of all classes is 275 (a very marked increase on the number shown last year), of which 152 are ol poultry, 53 of pigeons, and 60 of canaries, while there are also a couple of pairs of goldfinches, and half a dozen extra exhibits, entered for exhibition only.

consisting of peacocks, guinea pigs, parrots, and parroquets. The exhibits are by no means confined to Ashburton, entries having also been received from Waterton, Tinwald, Winslow, Flemington, Holiest on, Hakaia, Timaru, Christchurch, etc On the whole, the Association may well feel proud of its second annual show, while those who have been actively engaged in getting it up are certainly entitled to a word of praise for their exertions. On the stage are ranged the art union prizes. An immense improvement this year were the pens, provided by the Association. Last year exhibitors had to bring their own pens or cages, and the result was that receptacles of every shape, kind, and make were collected, the irregular sizes considerably marring the general effect. This year, however, the cages are of a uniform size, except in a few necessary cases, and the consequence is that the exhibits show off to much greater advantage. Owing to the length of the prize-list, and the time occupied in its compilation (the judging not having been entirely finished until between one and two o’clock), we are unable to give a detailed notice of each exhibit. It must suffice to say that the Show was a most creditable one in every way. The following is the prize list;—Poultry ; Class I—Black-breasted red game cocks, S. Saunders, 1.
