A Downpour of Rain, However, Prevented a Very
Large Attendance—The
Exhibits Exceeded Last
Year's—A Full Report
of Fair and a List of
the Prize Winners.
There wan a large turnout of visitors to the second annual exhibition
ol the Horticultural show. The pouring ruin mi Saturday induced the com-
mittce to also kco|i the show open on
Monday, when it also rained. But despite the lad there was a' good attendance. Among those prominent
were President Bell, Reeve Kealy. R.
G. Macpherson, Hon, Frank Oliver, J.
R Garden, M, P. P„ Hon. C L Cotton, M. P, P.. P. X. Martin, Col. W'or-
Sliop, .1. 15, Miller and others.
in opening President Hell made a
few brief remarks and introduced R.
"1. Macpherson, M. P., who made a
very happy speech, and said many
encouraging things, remarking also
lit 'I he had been requested by the
I'.eanlii'yiiig Association to open a
combined drinking fountain, horse and
dog trough, and while the rain prevented them gathering at tit-,t point,
he would deel ire il opened frniri where
lie si |  (applause).    He also said
thai ihe future of North Vancouver
was all thai could be desired, and that
ere two years had passed i.i. whistle
nf the locomotive would be heard in
the dislrict.
The lion. F. Oliver. M. P.. also addressed the audience briefly.
The Indian exhibits were indeed
well selected and very interesting, The
collection of baskets—llie make of
which cannol be surpassed in the
world—contained one for an infant.
The bows md arrows, the cannc lonls
and medicine piscal were heirlooms
ni the exhibitors, A line crayon picture. Ihe subject of which was a pair
nf moose drinking in the moonlight,
was beautifully framed and showed
merit, Our Mission neighbors are to
he congratulated on their line display,
The dairy produce was Confined tn
exhibitors of the dislriel. and cnnse-
qucntly the number was small. There
were three rolls of line butler. The
judge hesitated a long time before he
could really decide the winners. The
color decided the contest, and not the
taste, The brown eggs were well
selected and looked good, likewise the
white. The bread was a credo lo its
makers, llie flour used could not have
been better, ami 'the baking all lhat
could be desired, ll was a pity lhat
the prizes could not go net d. The
judge said: "Now. we've got fine
bread and butter, Inn wherc's the
honey." There was no honey. Next
year, however, promises to he a red
letter one in honey, as several have
signified their intention of raising bees.
The live slock exhibits were confined to the residents of the dislriel.
which we lliink is a mistake. There
were only two Jersey cows and one
Durham, not above the average ..how
cattle in appearance, bin excellent for
'where. In pigeons the entries were
limited, but classed among the best in
ihe province. Tim white fantalls, cinnamon tumblers, carriers and homers
reflected the good judgment of the exhibitors.
In ladies' work the editor was not
much of a critic, hut then his best girl
told him all ahout the exhibits, and
what she does not know about sewing.
knitting, darning, crocheting, (pulling,
hand painted things, weaving, spinning, coloring, ironing and washing,
il is not worth knowing. Everything
in this exhibit was restricted to the
district. In this regard, it is thought
that it would have been belter had it
been open lo all, and made the local
display a special feature. The crochet
lace frilling for dress was very fine
work, as well as the hand-painted
panels. Two round hand-painted
table boats, trimming yellow and pink
silk, attracted a good deal of favor-
able comment, likewise the point and
knit lace. The home-made rug, sofa
pillow shams, quilt and drawn work
showed lo good effect. The knit slippers and soeks were well done, and
could be shown anywhere.
The display of St. Paul's school was
a great surprise, the work being so
complete and thorough, The handmade mats, the child's pink dress and
the miss' while dress could not be
improved, The silk cover piece, 7x7
inches with the cross and initials 1.
II. S., worked in gold with flowers in
color, was, perhaps, the best class in
the exhibit. The same design was
also worked in white. The stockings,
crochet hose and darning was worthy
of particular mention. A large bedspread, all hand crochet work, was ex-
lljbitcd, but as there was no entry
icket attached thereto, the judges resetted very much lhat they could not
give il first prize as it was easily a
winner. A frame to crochet with was
i unique future. It was six ini'b.'i
hi height, and 10x15 square, tapering
'rom the top centre to the edges.
\cross it lengthwise was a woolen
•oiler, stuck with «8 pins with different colored heads. The thread to be
woven inlo line lace was fastened to
an attached bar at the opposite side to
the worker who pulled the thread,
through these (liferent pins by means
of handles, 88 in number, around the
ends of which Ihe thread was wound.
People by the score examined this
closely and wondered what it was. It
was a pity that some one had not been
working it, and its completeness dene
oiistrated. All in all St. Paul's school
must be highly complimented and
congratulated for its very excellent
The showing made by children ol
the district, under 14 years, was very
encouraging. The fancy work, map
drawing and the needle work of the
St. Paul's school was well and neatly
way lo cure prunes is lo dry them.
The blackberries could not be beaten.
The grapes were fair. Peaches and
quinces should have been more numerous because Ihe hills back of the
municipality is particularly adapted lo
growing them. They were excellent.
The best display of apples comprised
17 varieties and were a fair sample of
ihe whole, namely, Jonathan, Golden
Russetl, Bromley, Warner, King,
Seedling. Prince Albert, Ribstoil, Pippin, Royal Jubilee. Keswick, Codlin,
Snow, Duchess Ohlcnbcrg, Bismarck,
Royal Jubilee, Maiden's lllnsh, Lord
But undoubtedly llie best thiug^ in
the ladies' section was the hand-made
rouge et noir, and was much admi.'cd.
The end part was finished with litllc
•twirly dingbats, hanging on to a
whangdoodlc, in which the dingwhan-
glcs were painted a pure green. The
centre of this magnificent piece of
work was ornamented with little ornamental swats of crenie-de-ininthc
colors, edged off on the trimming!
with ntugwlmplcs of doojohns. So it
will be seen why an admiring group
of ladies Stood all round this work of
art all day.
The flowers comprised asters, dahlias, geraniums, gladiolas. roses, pan-
sics and several other kinds. The asters and dahlias were of the best variety, The cut flowers were splendid,
the only child's collection being cut
flowers. The pansies were large. It
may he said that no two pansies are
ever alike and it is very difficult to
classify them as to variety. In dahlias the Grand Duke Alexis showed up
The vegetables were all that could
ie wished for. Ex-Rccvc Gill's exhibit, which was all grown ill the open,
was .splendid and a winner anywhere,
ll comprised com. hops (English cluster, intact on the pole they were grown
on), carrots,''rhubarb, potatoes, beans,
cabbage, mangles, citrous, tobacco,
turnips, sunflower (IX Inches), tomatoes and other stuff. The best cabbage was the savoys of Mr. Diplock
and the largest was a laic variety of
Mr. Larson. In squashes the Hubbard is best eating, and the only way
to judge them is by cooking. If a
judge was compelled to eat one of the
huge monsters on exhibition he would
die. W. L. Ilniilt must be complimented on his exhibit of a genuine
pumpkin for pics. Squashes and
pumpkins are always judged by size.
The rhubarb was very good. The lo-
matoes and turnips were specially

The display of fruits was all local
grown and beyond expectations ill size
mil quality. One mistake some ol the
exhibitors made was to remove the
bloom from the fruit, and polish it fnr
fleet. This is a demerit rather than
a merit, so far as judging goes. The
apples, of course, comprised the main
exhibit. To particularize would be
folly, as they were all good. One variety, the Buerrc Clairgean, is very
popular in the Fraser valley, especially
around Chilliwack. ll is a late fall
and lasls well into the winter and is
very lareg in size. The Gravensleins
were also line and are really a Christmas apple. The Alexandra is also a
very large apple and easily a winner.
The Northern Spy variety was very attractive. The snow apple, loo, is one
of the most luscious fruits in existence
and was well represented. The Siberian and llyslop crabs showed up well.
In pears the Hnrtlclls' of course, were
the best, but the other varieties were
also line. To judge pears, or for lhat

Mr. Tobias Wrenson, a prominent horticulturist of Rochester,
N. y., was one of tho visitors to
the North Vancouver (lower show.
Mr. Wrenson was spending a few
days litre and hearing of the ilower
show, naturally took it in. He
afterwards spoke in high terms ol
praise of the show to a party of
friends, while enjoying their postprandial cigars on the Hotel Vancouver piazza. For a town of
about 40,000 population it was a
mighty fine show." Mr Wrenson
was under the impression that the
show drew on the Cily of Vancouver instead of on her baby
sister on the opposite side of the
Inlet. Such a compliment, coming from a man of experience in
such matters, who has visited
shows in the large cities of the
United States, is one that the com-
inittee in charge may feel a justifiable pride in.

and dissappeared behind a huge
and immovable mahogany wardrobe, he was merely annoyed; but
when be discovered that bis man
had onilllitted to put any others
into his portmanteau, ho gave vent

This relieving him somewhat, he
armed himself with the poker and
made sundry lunges behind the
wardrobe, but with no result.
He swore softly, casting a frantic
glance at his watch, and then proceeded to search for a bell. But
there was none to be seen.
He bud not the slightest notion
in which direction bis host's room
was situated, and time was flying.
There was, therefore, nothing for
it but to finish his toilet with a
teverent prayer that bis collar
would not suddenly fly tip and hit
the back of his head before the
evening" was over—a prayer he
hardly expected to be granted.
The gong sounded, and, anathematising his man, collar studs and
the world in general, he decended
to the drawing room.
There were a few other guests
present besides the house party,
and Dick found himself escorting

had not noticed among the company on his arrival earlier in the

course and llie entrees proceeded
in much the same fashion. They
had nearly reached dessert when
the girl spoke;
"1 wonder if you are aware that
you have not addressed a single
remark to me since our introduction?"
Dick started. He could not
turn his head with ease, for fear of
the consequence, but he glanced
at her out ol the corner ol his eye.
"If you knew what was on my
mind yon would not be surprised,"
he returned gloomily.
"Tell me," she responded, "for
I confess tnat at.present your behavior does surprise me."
"There is no stud at the back of
my collar," replied Dick in sepulchral tones.
The girl laughed, a soft musical
"Oh. you poor man; I do sympathise. No wonder you are
silent and sad. Couldn't you have
got one lent you?"
"There was no bell in my room,
and no time to go on a search."
"When I am married," said the
girl reflectively, "1 will have a
tray of studs in every man's room.
Fancy if we were left without pincushions."
"Will you ask me to stay with
you?" demanded Dick. He was
forgetting the collar stud.
"Certainly," she responded;
"but 1 fear you will have to wait."
Dick wondered whether she was
engaged, and longed to find out.
"When I return the invitation,"
he replied, "you shall have "two
pincushions in your room."
The girl's thoughts were now in
the same direction as Dick's had

"You shall guess," Ilu replied.
"I ian not," she answered,
Her hands were in her lap and she

Dick's eagle eye fell upon it.
In the corner was a small embroidered "Y."

When the men ascended to the
drawing room Dick's eyes wandered
immediately in starch ol the girl.
He was not long in finding her,
and established himself on a lounge
beside her with a self possession.
"So your need has been supplied," remarked the girl.
"Certainly," he responded,

"Shyness, reticence and diffidence,, Miss O'Hea," said Dick,
are distinctly masculine virtues.
No doubt that accounts for your

"Do you also count politeness
among the virtues?" she demanded.
"Certsinly," responded Dick
airily, though for a moment he was
non-pi used.
