There will be -'Roman standing rac- es, flat races contests of endurance between man and horse, vaulting and hurdle races over high barriers bare-back races, jockey acts rough riding and many feats of expert equestrians will be- shown. Norris Rowe are awarding of mon- ey and medals as an incentive to re- alistic efforts and this spurs the con- testants to greater endeavor and consequent excitement for the aud- itors.

Each season some little show with a high-sound- ing title and but little else to recom- mend them, threaten opposition but Norris Rowe have always giv- en full value and a bit more for the money expended.
