EDENBRIDGE. RUNNER BEAN COMPETITION.

The first annual longest runner bean competition promoted by Mr. P. Wood, junr. was held at the "Swan Inn," Edenbridge, on Saturday.

Competition was keen, and enormous beans were shown. The prize-winners were:- 1) J. Buck, 2) W. Still, 3) T. Bingham. Runners up : J. Worsell, E. Baker, E. R. Morse, A. Shoesmith, F. Seale & T. Dunk. (In that order.)

The promoter of the competition showed three dishes of beans, amongst which was Charlton's Gigantic, undoubtedly the finest bean to grow.

The competition was so successful that it is to be followed by others. On September 9th prizes are to be offered by Mr. F. Anderson for the best beetroot, and on September 30th prizes by Mr. Wood for the heaviest marrow.
