AKAROA SUMMER SHOW.
GOOD ENTRIES IN ALL
A very successful show was held yesterday in the Oddfellows' Hall, when all classes were well filled. There was an excellent collection of cut flowers of all sorts, and the sweet peas were especially good. The collections of cut flowers were, excellent, and the pri„a winners had some splendid blooms. Another feature of the show was the display of salpbi glos3ie, some of which were as good as could be seen anywhere. In the fruit classes the competition was good, and tbe vegetables shown were really excellent. Tbe classes for sundries were also well filled, and the general aver age very high. Dr and Mrs Douglas, of Oamaru, and Mr T. Lewitt judged the flower classes, and Mesdameß Riches and Mottram tbe vegetables, while Mr F Davies kindly judged the sundries. There was an excellent entry for decorated tables, here, as in other j classes, the judges must have found it, difficult to allocate tbe prizes The judges pointed out-several ambiguities in the catalogue, and said that it ought to be clearly specified whether more : than one head was to be allowed in such classos as phlox drummondi and verbenas. It is very useful to have the advice of people who have had a good deal of experience in horticultural shows, and tha committee would do well to adopt several of the suggestions Dr and Mrs Douglas gave yesterday.
