FREMANTLE HORTICULTURAL
ANNUAL CHRYSANTHEMUM
SHOW.
The Fremantle Horticultural Society,
whose members are drawn solely from
the ranks of amateur growers, held its
fifth annual chrysanthemum show yes-
terday in the local Town Hall. The
season, unfortunately, has not been fa-
hot just at the time the buds were
forming, and for this reason a really
first-class show display could hardly have
been expected. However, in spite of ad-
verse climatic conditions, the show was a
very creditable one, and the Society is
deserving of praise for the high standard
of excellence which was reached in some
of the classes. While the blooms suf-
fered in comparison with those exhibited
than at any previous show. At yester-
day's show there were 140 exhibitors, as
of a widening interest in the Society and
its aims. The prize for the champion
cut bloom was awarded to Mr. G. Hay-
Wright variety being the successful ex-
hibit. The best blooms on the benches
were those of the Pocket Seedling. Mil-
licent Richardson, Australian Gold, S.
Cronin varieties. There was a splendid
display of pot plants, especially in ferns,
which showed evidence of careful culti-
vation, and some very pretty hanging
baskets were exhibited. The floral work
formed an attractive feature of the show,
the Pine Grove Nursery and Mr. W. J.
suites, wreaths, and sprays on view.
Apart from the exhibits entered for com-
petition, there was a fine display of
cactus dahlias from the Zoological Gar-
dens, the collection comprising no less
than sixty distinct varieties. The cura-
very fine assortment of roses, and some
excellent chrysanthemum blooms grown
in the open air at the Old Men's Depot
(Fremantle) were shown.
The show was opened by His Excel-
lency the Govenor, who was accom-
panied by Lady Bedford and his aide-de-
camp (Capt. Horne) and private secre-
tary (Capt. Byron). The vice-regal
party were met at the Fremantle Rail-
way Station by the President of the So-
ciety (Mr. J.J. Holmes, M.L.A.), and
driven to the Town Hall where they
were received by a guard of honour,
formed by cadets drawn from the State
Schools in the Fremantle and Cottesloe
districts, and in charge of Lieut. Royce.
On the stage in the hall were grouped
a number of girls from the Princess May
School and as the Governor and suite
entered they sung, under the leadership
of Miss Peacock, the National Anthem.
In asking Sir Frederick Bedford to
open the show, the President, on behalf
of the Society, extender a hearty wel-
come to His Excellency and Lady Bed-
ford. The Society has been in exis-
tence five years, and was composed
wholly of amateurs. Both the
Governfent, and Municipal Council
had given them some assistance
for it was generally recognised that the
Society was doing some good to the com-
munity. Almost the last act of the late
Colonial Treasurer had been to give the
Society a grant of £20, for which they
were extremely grateful, and the Coun-
cil had granted the free use of the hall.
His Excellency briefly declared the
show open, and congratulated the Society
on the excellent display of chrysanthe-
mums. He expressed the pleasure which
both he and Lady Bedford felt at being
present. To his mind, the most interest-
ing feature of the show was that it was
had attended had been carried out by pro-
fessionals, who sat up all night and curl-
pleased to see such a large
was a grand thing for the State to-have
these lads well drilled and taught how
ever come when our shores would have
to be defended, he was sure that the men
who had undergone the training that the
cadets were now receiving would give a
good account of themselves. (Applause.)
Lady Bedford was then presented with
a basket of chrysanthemums by Mrs. J.
J. Holmes the wife of the president of
the Society, and, on behalf of the mem-
bers, Miss Hayman handed Mrs, Holmes
a floral bouquet.
Mr. T. Smith moved a vote of thanks
to Sir Frederick and Lady Bedford,
which was carried with acclamation. At
the close of the ceremony the Governor
was entertained in the Mayor's parlour,
and the ladies partook of light refresh-
ments, provided by the Mayoress (Mrs.
Frank Cadd), Mrs. J.J. Homes, and
Mrs. T. Smith, in the banqueting hall.
The show was continued in the even-
It will remain open this afternoon and

209 Esplanade W.,
My dear Aunt Mary,—I wish to be
one of your nephews. I am eleven years
old. I go to Sunday School and State
School. We have a nice ground in front
cricket set. Hockey is in now, and dada
made mo a hockey stick. My State
and my Sunday School teacher's name is
Mrs. Matters. I remain,—Yours affec-
tionately, LYNN WEBB.
My dear Lynn,—I was very pleased to
get a letter from you and to hear of your
doings. I wonder which you like best,
football or cricket or hockey ? The latter
is a favourite game of the girls in Perth
now. I know a Miss Matters who is very
nice, too. l Will you join the Silver
Chain? Yours affectionately. AUNT
MARY.
Port Melbourne, June 23.
My Dear Aunt Mary,—I hope you will
accept me as one of your nieces. I have
three aunts, three uncles, and two cou-
live in Victoria. Two of my uncles sell
names are Mr. Frolley and Mr. Good-
hill, and they often send us your paper.
You were saying your nephews and
nieces were not writing to you, so I sup-
pose you will be glad to get two nephews
and niece. The baby next door to us
has the same name as you, "Mary." We
have been home all day, as it is so cold
and wet, and Isabelle. Murray and Mary
Downie came in our place and played
with us. They brought ludo, snake, and
flag games. We played at concerts at
the beginning of the afternoon, and Isa-
dience, and I was to tell them when to
clap. At the beginning of the concert
we had a graphophone, and EIm was the
graphophone. Then we played at snake
and flag games until George came to say
the little Downies were to come home. I
am 10 years old, and in the 5th class at
School. I remain—,Yours affectionate-
ly. VERA WEBB.
My dear Vera,—I was delighted to
hear from you and will gladly accept you
as one of my nieces. You must have
quite an affection for Western Australia,
having so many relations here. I am
glad that you sometimes see the "West-
ern Mail, and hope you will continue
your interest in the Children's Column.
It has been very cold and wet in Perth
for the past week, but even wet days
pass swiftly by when you enjoying such good
fun the day you speak about.—Yours
affectionately, AUNT MARY.
