Mrs Taylor exhibited two samples of blackberry jam and apple jelly; Mrs John Doyle a sample each of'apple jelly, pumpkin jam, and quince jam ; Mr A.. W. Randall, 24 bundles of splendid rhubarb ; and Mr F. Ferriman samples of patent scour and lunsj-worm mixture. In the produce shed Mr James/ Beseltine showed two complete sets, of busrgy harness, one in tan leather and nickel silver mountings, the other .in black leather and similar mountings. These showed very nicely finished work with double fhand-sewn seams, and very good quality of mountings and buckles Mr W. Zander had a very neatly fitted up case d! ornamental hair work, roa de up m Ashburton. The case aC contamed a choice variety of toilet wquisites. Mr A. Orr, as usual, displayed a very attractive stall of New ZeEwchE manufactures, consisting of tweeds in the piece and made up in suits, tartans, flannels, blankets, hosiery, woollen dress goods, ruga, shawls, woollen, yarns, and shirts from,, the factories of the Roslya an.il Kaiapoi companies. This stall showed: , superior quality of those WDoJftenn>inufacfcui<es at a glance, and the vwious; patterns (some 50 .in number) «f the-, piece goods were attractively, displayed., and arranged very tastefully, the whole> forming an excellent exhibit, and during: the day were examined by a large number ot visitow. Mr Orr also showed a choice jiissortment of ladies and gents' boots;, ana sh^es, o( German, French, and
colonial makes. These were all in a large glass case, and were also much admired by the crowd. It was a matter for regret that the Mosgiel Company did not show any ot their celebrated manufactures this year, and especially as they run the Ashburton local factory. We should have been pleased to see a stall devoted to their choice troods.
