According to the programme issued at the first inception o£ the aSew Zealand Exhibition, the date for the closing oi the entries is now passed. Special arrangements have been made for the extension of time for the British, Foreign, and Australian courts, and at the request of the Artisans or Workingmen's Committee the artisans' court will remain open for another week. But we are requested to intimate to that class of exhibitors that they should not lose any time in securing space An artisans' court is at all times one of the most interesting features in an exhibition, and besides showing the progress of our industries, it will afford exhibitors an excellent opportunity to advertise their wares and dispose advantageously of the result of their handicraft. Although the Building Committee have sanctioned the erection of a number of fresh annexes, and the whole of the available ground will bo covered by buildings, the applications have come to hand to fill up every bay throughout the building. The only space still at the disposal of the Commissioners is the few select spots in the main avenues. These are, as we have already on soveral occasions mentioned, fixed at a guinea a foot for glass show cases of a given pattern. Even for these the number is limited, and therefore early application is necessary.
