WHAT ABOUT OUR BARBERS? by Hugh
Lawrence. hen so many of our men
in the State keep on so much hair
and cover half their facE with
beards, actually refusing to spend
a few dollars to have themselves
look neat, thereby also helping
out our poor Barbers (some ofwhom
have large families to maintain,
and rents to pay monthly)., what
can one say?
One Barber suggested to me t-iat
these unshaven and un-trimmed men
should be taxed, as the total cash
saved by them annually amounts (he
estimated) to about $150,000.
I did not agree with him,though
our Minister of Finance may think
otherwise. H.L.

was deputed to visit agricultural
districts-to explain the situation. He ran into a storm of questions,
comments and observations at Marigot from farmers. He was 'accompanied
by Mr. ES.Lancaster and Mr. Elford Henry; Mr. Eddison James of the
Agricultural Bank doubtless eager to get some agricultural activity
off the ground was also in attendance. It is a pity that neither the
Chief Agricultural Officer, Mr. Colin Bully, and Chairman of the D.M.B.
Mr. Joffre Robinson were able to grace this supposedly god-sent ag-
ricultural inaugural meeting with their presence. Mr. LaBassiere,whose
flanks were exposed from the beginning, confessed that he was respons-

list and had to explain that prices were not immediate...
