Fancy peedle work—26.
Works of Antiquity—8.
Among these we find many articles of
merit and worthy of an extended men

Ed Fellows occupied tlie new addition

struments, stoves, a tine bed-room set
and other furniture making a neat dis

neat; Mr. Terry’s display of work in
steel was admired by all; the various
-xhibits of fiowers, needle-work etc., by
various ladies were closely inspected
md highly spoken of by the many who
viewed them. Some Splendid fruit,
vegetables and cereals were on exhibi
tion. Johnson A Force’s wagons, hacks
and buggies were highly spoken of—in

was of the best and showed what Yam- ,
