The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1914. PENINSULA HORSE SHOW.

The European War has proved one point conclusively, and that is tbe value of the horse in warfare, The work done by our cavalry regiments has been most helpful, and the theory that modern wars would be a matter of guns alone has been shown to be quite incorrect. In New Zealand here a large number of horses have been oent with the Expeditionary Forces, and realizing the need for breeding more horses suitable as troop horses, tbe Government has passed a Bill encouraging the breeding of troop horses. There is no doubt that shows do a great deal of good in the way ol improving the general standard of horses. At the Peninsula Horse Bbow the visitor usually sees a fine class of animal- It behoves all farmers to sbow what horses they can The competition is good, and getting them up for the show improves tbe horses, Up to Saturday last the membership of the show had amount ed to 121, and every membar should tfy and do his best to secure entries, Apart from the horse 3 the committee has arranged for cookery and horticul tural exhibits. ( There are some beautiful gardens in Akaroa and the Bays, and as many as can should bring in entries. The Horse Show at Duvau chelle is a good meeting place for peopie in Akaroa and the Bays, and it is ti gathering which would be missed by many. However, these gatherings cannot be carried on without any support in the way of entries of horses and produce, and we hope that tbe 1911 show will prove very successfu 1 in this respect.
