METHVEN AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL SHOW

The eighth annual show under the auspices of the Methven A. and P. Association was held to-day under .fairly favourable conditions. The morning was dull, but fine. Later in the day 'liffht rain foil. There was a very large attendance. Compared with last year u the entries showed :a slight decline, being 1470, jas :aeainst 1568. There was no fallmg-ott in the live stock classes, and sheep and .cattle showed substantial increases. IField roots, grain, and home industries were slightly. behind last year, but as tagainst these the juvenile section tooK ■a decided advance. V \- ■ " In the sheep classes, ia.. particular, there was well-balanced competition. except in Corriedal.es aud .[{oninoys. 1 where the entries were meagre. lhe display of sheep generally, and particularly the fats, would do credit to any show, and were a splendid advertise- . irient for, , the fattening quali- "' ties"'of the fertile district. Methven show, is also noted for the ' Quality of its exhibits in cattle, and '-each' ve'ar the exhibits appear to outline the;already'''creditable exhibits recorded" at former shows. The .fat 'cattle exhibits were greatly admired, •"-■and in'thc fat bullock, pens it was.no easy task 'to pick out the successful prize-winners. In fact, every animal in these classes was worthy of special recognition Great rivalry was also displayed in draught horses, for which the district is also noted. The thori ouehbred section was a small one, the dry mare class being the only one m wliiolv there was competition. Any lack of entry iri the thoroughbreds was counteracted by the stability of the harness, hackney, and hunter classes, where there"was no end of competition. Pony classes were also enthusiastically , supported by the juveniles. The pig sections were practically devoid of competition, and'will no doubt remain so except the dairy industry suddenly commences to boom in Methven. , The schedule also included poultry, and, although not a very favourable season of the year for exhibiting birds, still a fair number of enthusiasts sought to contest the; honours. The fruit section : drew little competition, for which the recent- nor'-west gales was no doubt responsible. The season favoured the horticulturist, as shown by the - very fine displays mode in the vegetable and field roots' sections. The society goes .: one further than most A. and P. association c. and caters for competition in the field for turnips, mangolds, arid lucerne. The value of this competition needs no snoeinJ mention. aw nil the farmers who know their, job understand that it is development on proper scientific lines. With record yields one would naturally expect to find more competition in grain exhibits. The emallness of competition in some classes was hard to understand. The ciairy produce, particularly in regard to butter, made a very effective display, ■■ and was a great credit to the ladies who competed. The same remarks apply to the cookery clas*s, for _ which there was keen competition. In the needlework classes the ladies had wide scope to display their artistic skill, and their display was one of the most pjeasintr features of the show. The. -JMTualitv of the work left nothing to be Wlesired. and many complimentary references were heard from the public w"ho viewed the exhibits. The juvenile section made a small show on its own, and brought out entries from several other schools in the County not in the immediate vicinity of Methven. It is to be regretted that more enthusiasm could not he worked up amongst the schools in the horticultural section. The following is the comparative table of entries: —
