The most interesting part of the Bruce County Court will be the education one. The display to be sent by the Milton High School will, on account of its originality, undoubtedly attract more attention than any of the other exhibits, and do a great deal towards making the court a success. For the greater part of the year the technical classes in connection with the school have been busy preparing, and so numerous and bulky are their exhibits that it has been found necessary to devote a whole bay to them. The display (which includes chests of drawers, bookcases, writing desks, canterburies for holding music, fire screens, picture frames, ornamental brackets, etc.) will be augmented by exhibits from the analytical department of the chemistry classes, and by numerous others from the school. It is intended to send some of the labor-saving appliances at present in use in the school, together with two of the most advanced boys, to illustrate their working and show the advantages to be derived from the use of turning lathes, boring machines, fretwork saws, circular saws, and other machines. The Milton High School, the first in the colony to introduce technical education within its walls with any degree of success, will undoubtedly be the first to exhibit to the general public the articles made by the pupus and mode of carrying on the work.— * Glutha Leader,’
The number of bays in the Education Court has been increased from thirteen to sixteen, this being effected by the removal of Professor Parker’s exhibits and by the placing of the anthropometries! bureau in the new verandah annexe at the top of the lefthand side. The exhibit of the Bible Society is to be shifted, and close to their position the two bays allotted to the convents of the colony have been taken, the decoration of these being entrusted to Mr Petre. Four bays have been alloted to the Otago Education Board, who are co-operat-ing with the sub-committee of the Education Committee to have a uniform system of
decoration throughout. & very Targe number of exhibits have already arrived, and it has been found necessary to altot no fewer than four bays to the art schools alone. The photographs, illustrative of the university buildings of Great Britain, may not be fa position until after the opening of tbe< Exhibition. For the rest, the Sloyct exhibit Which has been jntrehased by the< Government* some interesting exhibits from the Native schools, and the industrial section, will tend to relieve the possible monotony of the ordinary primary school work.

The majority of the bays in the Otago section are now boarded off, and some of them are well advanced with their decorations. The Canterbury Court is also well forward, but the northern extremity of the avenue, devoted to Wellington and Napier, is still as it was when the contractor banded over the building.
