Monday September 13, 1869 : "REGIONAL & MUSICAL CONTEST"

"The regional contest of Vimoutiers, department of Orne, has been one of the most successful. We were written from this town, on September the 13th, that a very special bovine, equine and horticultural exhibition was held for three days.

We know that the department of Orne is a breeding land, mainly of oxen and horses, and our reporter tells us that he seldom saw highest specimen than those shown in this agriculture contest.

The town of Vimoutiers took this opportunity to launch a Music contest show which proved to be gorgeous. Baron and Deputy Mackau had accepted to preside the contest in which many Music Groups participated. There can be no doubt that Art as well as Agriculture are evidently progressing in the department of Orne. M.V."
