POULTRY BVILDINO. The poultry at our annual tmr is one of its most intereetSng featuns. While the cooping is as good as the best, the exhibKs are wret^wlly boused. A new poultry bulMing should be built. The importance of the industry and excellence of tha exhibit demands it. It is to be hoped that the new Directors wil, arrange with the Pouiti^ men in holding"a winter show either immediately before or after .tha seed fa.r. Possibly a small show of fat stock might be held too. In tbU connection we think that you should impress upon the dspait* ment the need oit expert Judges lor the poultry and vegetables at tht^ fall fair. DATE OF PAIR.
