The annual exhibition of this Society took place in the Masons' Hall, Crieff, on the 7th of last month, and was considered the best the Society ever held. The fruit was remarkably fine, some of the bunches of grapes weighing from 7 lb. to 8 lb.; but as we cannot afford space to give the prize-list, we forbear giving any names to avoid the charge of being invidious. The judges, office-bearers, and members of the Society dined together at the Drummond Arms Hotel in the afternoon, when the usual loyal and patriotic toasts were given and responded to.
