(Canada) SPECIAL CLASS. THE PRESIDENT'S CUP-SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE. The two exhibits scoring the highest in each group, as determined by the specifications applicable to that group, will be selected to form this class. For the best and most comprehensive exhibit of commercial varieties in this class and as representing the state or section from which it comes, the President, Mr. Edward N. Loomis, of New York, offers a Silver Cup. No person, however, will be allowed more than one prize. The exhibit, therefore, ranking second in the Group which takes the Silver Cup will be awarded the first prize in that Group. The judges, in their preliminary determinations, will, therefore, make one more award than the prize list calls for, to provide for this necessity.

BASIS OF JUDGING. In judging the Exhibit, the following features will be considered and will count when perfect as the scale of points indicates. The scale is the standard of perfection and indicates the relative importance of the various points. Exhibits will be judged on this basis.

Scale of Points.

Standard QUALITY-(Including appearance, smoothness, regularity of form and freedom from blemish)....

30 SIZE-(As representing section from which it comes at that season of the year)

30 COMPREHENSIVENESS—(As representing section from which

it comes) COLOR-(As representing the section from which it comes at that season of the year)

100 It should be noted that COLOR is relatively unimportant. This was made so because the season is not far enough advanced on August 1st to allow it to be given a greater value.

GENERAL NOTES.

PURPOSE OF THE EXHIBIT. To show the Development and Condition of the Commercial varieties in the various sections, states and groups at that season of the year, i. e., the first of August.

It is fully recognized that fruit is not matured by August 1st. The question of maturity has nothing to do with this exhibit. We want to see how the crop has progressed up to that time, and an immature apple has just as great a chance as a matured apple, providing it is up to the standard for its particular section or state at that season of the year.

IN OTHER WORDS THE VARIETY OF SEASONS IN THE VARIOUS STATES IS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT BY THE JUDGES IN MAKING THEIR AWARDS, AND EVERYONE IS ON AN EQUAL FOOTING, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE FRUIT IS FULL GROWN OR NOT.

WHAT TO EXHIBIT. (1) WE WANT THIS YEAR'S FRUIT. Take it as it is on or about August 1st.

(2) PICKED FRUIT OR FRUIT ON THE BRANCHES, OR BOTH, ARE EQUALLY WELCOME. At the preceding exhibits small branches with the fruit on them have been shown with much profit. This indicates the development of the fruit, distribution, foliage, etc. YOU MAY EXHIBIT EITHER WAY OR BOTH WAYS, AS YOU PREFER. WE SUGGEST SENDING BOTH, IF CONVENIENT. HOWEVER, DO NOT FEEL THAT IT IS NECESSARY.

(3) Commercial Varieties are wanted, and the awards will be upon this

basis.

WHO MAY EXHIBIT. It is open to the world. Anyone is welcome-growers, dealers, consumers, associations or selling agencies, whether the fruit exhibited is raised by them or not. IT IS NOT NECESSARY THAT THE FRUIT EXHIBITED
