STATE BOAED OF AGEICULTUKE. 199

The Committee farther report : The exhibition of reapers and mowers exceeded
anything of the kind ever witnessed at onr State Fair, and did great credit to the
inventors and mannfl&ctnrerB of those nsefal machines. Thirty-eight entries were
made, and the machines were all upon the ground, many of them having improve-
ments, in the opinion of the Committee, of great valne. The workmanship, finish,
and mechanic&l skill exhibited in their construction were all that could be desired.
The trial of horse hay-forks was unsatisfactory to the Committee, as no conveniences
were provided for testing the merits of the several forks. One fork, the double har-
poon, was misplaced upon the ground, and escaped the notice of the Committee until
after the awards had been made ; but the Committee are of the opinion that it con-
tains merits which should entitle it to a premium.
