The meeting was a most successful one and while there were not as many birds on exhibition as last year, they showed that our people had been practicing the slogan, Keep the Quality up" and made a much better show by exhibiting a far better grade of birds. The Orpington breed was in the lead as far as numbers was concerned. There were Buff and White Orpingtons, Barred and White Rocks, Brown and White Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, Black Spanish, Black Langshans, Buff Cochin Bantams and -just Bantams. There may have been other breeds but this 18 all we call to mind at present. The judge, Mr.

Schreiff, gave good satisfaction, but we believe when we hire a judge for a three days show we are entitled to at least two days of his time.
