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
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."
