"'XX-l  Last week we had to report the utter failure of Earl Jr., in his second  Grand Circuit race of the season.   It  was a sore   disappointment to every  Enderbyite who has his eyes on the  fast Enderby pacer, owned by Paddy  Murphy.     After winning six straight  free-for-alls on thc Canadian circuit,  Mr. Murphy took Earl Jr. on to the  Grand Oircuit to meet his old rivals,  Independence Boy, The Eel and Evelyn W.   In his   first race at Detroit,  the stallion won .first money; in the'  second    race,   at   Columbus,  he was'  distanced 'in the  -first heat,  the race  going to Evelyn W.. There was-interest shown   in . his   next race, which  came off at Columbus, O., last Thursday;.    It resulted;in being the world's  record race.    (The Earl won the first  and third  heats 'and Evelyn W.J carried off the',second,  fourth and fifth.'  Following is,the wired report of the  race-      "Evelyn   W., ��������������������������� the    champion,  pacer of the'year, met Earl Jr.', Oct.  3rd,-on the,Columbus track in a race  that brought a. new world's record for  the, fivet"heats./Each of -the contestants did, a mile   in, 2:01^,- the one by  Earl Jr:, being the third of-the lot.  The second, and fourth heats were- in  2  mer  Minor  Haute, in 1909  .."Evelyn W.' was the" favorite:- Last  week-Earl (Jr.,.'started against her,,  and was distanced, .in ,the first heat.  boats became a total loss in the disaster.

Harvey, and Mrs. Salt  The oliicers of the Association will  be named by the Board  of Directors,  in  accordance   with    the   Act    under  which the society is incorporated.  A comnrittee consisting of Messrs.  Lawes, Campbell ancl Walker was appointed to bring the constitution and  by-laws of the society into conformity with the provincial Act, and to  learn from the Department of Agriculture if the society is to be granted  assistance from the Department in  the matter of prize money for its annual exhibitions.  The   society   decided to adopt the  plan  of    specializing,    ancl  to  try to  make the thought of the society and  jits  members concentrate each season  ! upon    one    particular   line    of  plant  life,  and    to   encourage  in  a general  way the   growing   of that particular  variety of   flower.     It should be explained that it is not the purpose of  the society to   disregard other varieties, or to   discourage anyone whose  hobby may be along other lines, but  ; rather to   place   all   members on an  equal footing in  the leading contests  of the season.   This year the society  will direct its efforts in the direction  of getting   the    basic   gardens  laid,  ancl  will urge   its   members and the  i public generally' to go into perennials  |and to make this the perennial year.  The prizes in the annual flower show  will be made to offer the greatest inducements for perennial growing, and  will taper off for other, flowers. Next  o  year it may be annuals, or roses, or  some other particular Variety. In  ''this way it is hoped to inaugurate a  ;more systematic development of flora  culture among its members.  Mr.   Huffman  was   commissioned at  the last meeting of the society to  'draft a prize list   for the next show.  i *  jHe submitted the following draft,  ! which was accepted and laid on the  ���������������������������table until the report of the'sp.oial  j committee on thc matter of regulations, etc.  1.

Exhibition  Association and the Provincial Government. :     '  There are two classes of hens engaged in the contest. In class one  arc White, Buff and Brown Leghorns  and Anconas. In class two are  Rhode Island Reds, White, Buff, Partridge, Columbian, Silver Pencilled  and Silver Laced Wyandottes, Barred  and Buff Plymouth Rocks and Buff  Orpingtons.  Class one, comprising the lighter  birds, have averaged higher than the  heavier birds in class two. Up to  to the end of the eleventh month of  the contest, the best pen in class one  had laid 920 eggs, and the best pen  in class two 782 eggs.  Por a time during the contest the  hens were disturbed by blasting operations in the vicinity of Hastings  Park, where the contest pens are locate. Last month' there was little  trouble from this source and better  laying records were made.  These are all the more creditable  owing to the fact that most of the  pens have been in various stages of  moulting during the month. In class  one 16 out of the 23 pens were moulting. Still in this class one pen layed  118 eggs, another 111 and another  109. This was the work of five birds  in 30 days. In class two the high-  scoring pen dropped 95 eggs ancl the  next best 90. While the largest number of moulters is in class one, class  two has the most broodies.  Much of the interest in this con^st  has been chilled by the fact that no  one but the officials in charge knows  where the pens are from. In the  next contest it is proposed that the  names and addresses of the owners of  contesting pens will be made pii'lic.  POINTS ON ROSE-GROWING  Rose beds should contain at least  two feet of good soil, made up of well  rotted manure, leaf mold and sand,  with ashes or, better still, pulverized  ! charcoal for red ancl- pink roses, as it  gives better color. --  For mildew, dust' with sulphur, ancl  be sure to reach the underside of leaf.  This is best done when' the dew is on.  - Give - some fertilizer every year,  chemical- or barnyard.
