Cubing tbe next two weeka our two PeDiD3ula A and P. Associations will bold their annoal shows at Duvaucbelle and Little River Both Abso oiations have worked yigirously in providing a programme tbat is a credit to tbe district,, and we bope their efforts will bo responded to.by excellent exhibitions of stock, borses and produce worthy of a rich farming community suoh as our own One often bears a
