The Summer Show of this Society was held in a magnificent marquee on the Links, yesterday.

The Show was in every respect equal to those of former years (last year, being a special show, excepted), both in the number and the general excellence of the plants. It may be mentioned that the valuable Silver Challenge Cup, competed for by nurserymen and florists only, was gained by Mr M'Pherson, Polmuir, who was also the successful competitor last year, the cup now becoming his own property. The collection of plants which gained this much-coveted prize was the following, viz.: - Pavetta Borbonica, Yucca quadricolor, Gymnostachyum Pearcii, Alocasia Jenningsii, Sanchezia nobilis, variegated, Begonia Pearcei, Adiantum Farleyense, Nepenthes hybrida maculata, Yucca filamentosa variegata, Acalypha tricolor, Ixora Princeps, Dichorisandra Mosaica.
