GOQP ENTRIES FOR TUES PAY'S SHOW.
The entries for the Banks Pecjneu!a A. and P.' Association's Show, which is, to be-held on this Awa iti DomaiD, Little River, on Tuesday next, are rather better than in pie vioua years as far aa stock is concerned, though there is a noticeable falling off in the domestic produce classes, mainly the cookery section, The classes for horses are as well filled as last year, the draught horse
classes beiDg better patronised than last jsar. There will be an excellent exhibition of light horses as at Inst show, including the be:t in the province. The sheep classes show a
f-Pght fallipg off as the season is late, and most , , of tbe show sheep will be shorn before November 25th. Ifc is expected there will be a fine exhibition in the flower classes, especially if tbe weaiher clears.
Altogether the entries are eminently satisfactory, and the Bbow of tiorsep, cattle, sheep, pigs etc., wLI be the best the Association has bad. Mr J, Grigg, of Long Beach , will exhibit bis well known Holstein cattle and draught horse champions, Mr Geo. Gould bis fine Guernsey cattle, Mr R. Latter a flock of Angora goats, and there are four entries in the bullock teams c'as?, so this should be a fine exhibition &ni an attraction to the Show.
