List of Prizes Awarded
at Poultry Show.
From any and every angle of vision
the first annual show of the North
Mississippi Poultry Association which
Was held m this city last week was
eminently successful, even beyond the
most sanguine expectations of those in
closest touch with the details and out
look. The truth of the matter is that
a year ago, and at the time the associa
tion was first organized, the fondest
hope of the promoters was to pull off
the first show with 1,000 birds on exhi
bition , and it seemed that to hope for
more than 1,200 would be no less than
folly. A great man# of the members
mainteined this standard up to the
hour of actual count and when it was
announced that there were 2,000 birds
cooped and ready for the judges the re
port could not be given credence. But
such was the case^nd had it not been
for the excellent judgement and tire
less efforts on the part of Superinten
dent C. W. Hall and his sole assistants
the confusion and chaos that might
have resulted from this surprise would
no doubt have caused some inconven
ience and annoyance. But by working
night and day everything passed with
out a single untoward incident and by
six o’clock Saturday afternoon every
specimen had been handled by the
judges, viewed by visitors by the thous
and and \fras en route home. Since
that time the secietary and his assist
ants have been working overtime try
ing to make sure that every award is
properly placed. It required a greater
part of this week to complete the final
