Frcm Sept 30 to Dec. 3, the Pan- ama-Pacific International Exposition at San Francisco will be the scene of a succession of live stock shows, which, it is believed, will surpass any ever held in the United States or even in the world. From the list of those who have signified their inten- tion to participate, it is assumod that in all shows and poultry of the finest quality, and in large quantity, will be represented. Almost half million dollars have been ap-- propriated. The Exposition itself has apportioned for cash prizes, 45 breed record associations have set aside for special premiums and the commissions of various states have appropriated a total of for participation of stock from their respective regions. The quarantine i raised in practically all states and stock shipments can now be made without restriction. The fact that the Exposition is now on a sound financial basis, its net profits incteasinj; monthly, assures the carrying out of the extensive preparations for the shows, which will be as follows: returning poultry, pigeons, dogs, cats nnd pet stock. The Exposition will protect exhibitors from overcharge bv r-roviding them with feed at cost. 'Tne first competitive live stock show will be that for horses, mules Show. Horses, mules and asses....
