ANNUAL SHOW. The display made in the Zealandia Hall on Wednesday and Thursday by the above progressive society would be hard to beat. The season has been favourable, and numbers of growers have been cultivating for show purposes, and the climax was reached when the exhibits were nicely staged in the spacious hall- The attendance was large, and the public were not slow in appreciating the fine display made. Numerous exhibition stands added to the effect, particularlj - those by the Corporation gardener Mr Edginton. Mr Couling had a very effective display of pot plants and a monster marrow of his own growing. The various growers, both amateur and professional, were well represented. The decorated tables were much admired, and it was a toss up which would receive tho co vetted place. Mr John Kings land had a very fine collection of locallygrown grapes, while Mr Meredith was to the fore with tomatoes that would be hard to beat. Headers will see by the subjoined prize-list that the prizes have been very well distributed, and that those who secured them had in most instances to face a good deal of opposition. A very fine collection of vegetables, etc., was shown by Mr Day, grown on the land where the new fever hospital is to be erected. They created a very favourable impression, considering that people in some quarters are led to believe the place is a swamp. A word of praise is due to the gentlemen who arranged the staging and displaying of the various exhibits. Mr E. Hatchett, as secretary, took a very heavy share of the work, and the success of the show is due, in a great measure, to the amount of energy he displays in any work he undertakes. Mr Norris’ band played a number of choice selections, dnd seats were provided for the comfort of patrons.
