As has been previously stated In these columns, the offleers of the society are dolng their part, la fitting up the grounds, putting the buildings n simpe, improving the track, etc, and If the oomlng exhibitión should not prove a succes?, it wlll be no fault of the management. That falrs are beneticial in more thau one way is a conceded fact, and especially are they beneücial to the farmer. They aflbrd an opportunity to compare notes and ascertain what your brother farmers are doing in the way of advanccinent I" agriculture. If allbrds an opportunity for the farmers to discjiss the merits of tlie different breeds of stock, and creates a friendly competition, which cannot fail to be ol advantage to all.
