Entertainment at Somerset.
Those who embraced the opportunity of attend-
ing the concert held in the Masonic Hall, Somer-
set, on the 11th and 12th instants, were not only
able to enjoy a pleasant evening and a capital
programme, but also had the satisfaction of sup-
porting the Sunday School, which meets in the
Masonic Hall. This school was established in
1896 by S. W. Wright, Esq., Fleet Paymaster,
R.N. On his departure it was entrusted to Q.M S.
New, A.O.C., till last year, when the work was
taken over and carried on by Mr. Bone with
marked success,-with the assurance of that good-
will such an institution deserves. The entertain-
ment was organized for the purpose of raising the
necessary funds for carrying on the good work,
and, in addition, to assist in providing the means
to give the children an evening party at this fest-
ive season.
Appended is the programme :

Song and Chorus The Honeysuckle and the Bee
Archie Cooper and Scholars
Our space will not permit of referring in detail
to each particular item and we will give our read-
ers a few general remarks.
The Scholars sang out heartily and well and
elicited generous applause and we make particular
mention of the dance and chorus Sing Merrily"


f:
which was most pioturesq"ae hie girls all wore
light blue sashes and ribns and the boys
red, at the ends of the sas as were fastened
small tinkling bells which ded a very pretty
effect, the different move nts were nicely
timed and graceful, giving evidence of care-
ful practice and the training of Mrs. Bone.
The little ones gave a really gdod show in Nur-
sery Rhymes" which was mh enjoyed. War-
ren Smith was a funny "Little Jack Horner,"
George Downs and Thomas Fills were veritable
toy soldiers with their red jakets, forage caps,
belts and bugles. There wqre also introduced
" Ride-a-cock-horse, "Sing a song a sixpence, "
"Mary, Mary, quite contrary," and the Five
little kittens in which Ida Henderson, Daisy and
Dorothy Downs, Edith Young and Jessie Hooper
took part, all looking quite captivating in their
quaint fancy dresses; these juveniles did remark-
ably well and deserved the enthusiastic applause
that greeted them. Miss Nila Young spared no
pains or trouble in perfecting'this charming pic-
ture and certainly succeeded in her difficult task.
Mr. S. Swain, bandmaster of the Worcester
Regiment very generously gaVe some selections on
the Cello," and contributed by his masterly per-
formance no little to the enjoyment of the evening.
Messrs. Woodmore, Cochrane and Crabtree,
singers of repute, likewise gave their services and
were each rewarded with an encore.
The reciting of several of tle scholars was de-
cidedly good and special merftion should be made
of the prologue "Welcome by Charles Smith
whose clear delivery and easy action were most
pleasing.
The dialogue was well said and created a fund
of amusement while the original short sketch "He
Wanted to Marry" caused roars of laughter and
was accorded a large measure of approval. Miss
Grace Hooper made her appearance before the pub-
lic for the first time and she deserves that indul-
gence-shown for here nervousness which the au-
dience readily bestowed,
Miss Violet Rice made her debut before the pub-
lic in a piano duet Boots and Saddles" and
created a favourable impression.
Miss Evelyn Swain sang with clear voice a pa-
thetic ballad "Hello, Central, Call up Heaven,'I
accompanying herself on the guitar. This little
lady caused quite a flutter of excitement ; she was
so perfectly self-possessed and sang so nicely that
she was recalled again and again.
Miss Nellie Barrett kindly-gave her valued ser-
vices as accompanist in several of the songs which
was greatly appreciated. "God Save the King"
sung by the children and a well pleased audience
fittingly concluded this most successful entertain-
ment.

The Venezuelan Affair.
Christmas greetings in the form of ultimatums
are poring in upon -,Venezuela. Up to the
present six have been forwarded from Great
Britaii, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium and
France. President Castro has apparently aban-
doned his uncompromising attitude, and invested
Mr. Bowen, United States Minister at Caracas
with full powers to effect a settlement with Great
Britain, Germany and Italy. Venezuelan mat-
ters have occupied no inconsiderable share of at-
tention in Legislative Assemblies both on the
east and west of the Atlantic and even found a place
in the King's speech at the proroguing of Parlia-
ment. In the House of Commons Mr. Schwann
reproached the Government for wanting war
again,-and so soon after the South African War
too: he wanted information, and he hoped for
arbitration. Mr. McColl in the House of Repre-
sentatives at Washington on Tuesday asked for
papers as to the extent or purpose of the joint de-
monstrations of the European Powers against
Venezuela: and two days later Mr. Shaforth

to sojourn or live altogether, at the time above

others generally, that it may prove of interest,
and amusement to your many leaders to have
related this little incidenatl Episode of many years
ago, it having been told to me a long time ago, by
my dear old mother, who was personally cognizant
of the facts of the case ; so that I do not hesitate
to vouch for the truth of them, as I shall relate
here as correctly as my memory will permit of my
doing, after such a long lapse of years. This said
Dr. Cokely must have been a man (to my fancy'
a person of rather peculiar and crotchety or cranky
ideas as he was possessed of a mania to destroy all
orange trees, coming under his control, and to gel
control of them, he would rent properties if pos-

urged the President to propose arbitration lest
violence result to the Monroe Doctrine.
Meanwhile a peaceful blockade of six Vene-
zuelan ports will commence at 3 p. m. to-day-
and the Prime Minister of Great Britain says
there can' be no such thing as a "peaceful block-
ade." This is a most inviting subject for those
who have a turn for logic. Germany, conscious
of having made a mistake in the matter of sink-
ng the gunboats, explains that they were only
old useless revenue cutters, and not worth men-
tioning. Her honour has been deeply wounded
and she inust have not alone a settlement of
claims but an ample apology to boot. France, as
wont, is courteous-but firm ; Italy ditto :
The comic element in the situation is repre-
sented very fitly by the attitude of Nicaragua
which is highly indignant at the liberties foreign
powers are allowing themselves in Western waters.
If they do not take the better care they shall have
Nicaiagua as well as Venezuela to reckon with.
It is probable therefore that the powers in order to
save face may decide to accept arbitration-with a
guarantee from the United States.
On the whole the Venezuelan affair may turn
out after all to be a .kind of ducks' battle"-
much noise and little execution.

THE BABES IN THE WOOD.
One of the pious robins who are to assist at the
obsequies of The Babes in the Wood" at St.
George's in New Year's Week has brought us the
news that arrangements for the ceremony are pro-
gressing very favourably.
The rehearsals are getting along well. All the
songs are up-to-date and very pretty. The band
is under direction of Miss Shute, and lovers of
music may look forward to the enjoyment of a
rare treat. Harlequin is doing wonders as to the
management of his wondrous wooden weapon,
much to the discomfort of poor Pantaloon who
grins and bears it as best he may.
Altogether a rare week's fun for the little folks
(and, perhaps, for some of the old folks too) is in
prospect.
We wish the authors of the play ond their comn-
pony all the success they can desire, 'which after
all, is no more than they deserve.

GOVERNMENT HOUSE,
Bermuda, Dec. 18, 1902.
.rothie Editor of The Royal Gazette.
Sir,-I notice it stated in tie debates of the
House of Assembly, on the authority of the late
Mr. Bartram, that the female of the fly that lays
its eggs in our soft skinned fruits is wingless. I
do not yet know the insect in question but shall
secure some ,infected fruit and raise the lavm to
the imago stage, and if Mr. Bartram was correct,
the remedy is harineless, simple, cheap and certain,
at the same time I fea, Mr. Bartram was mistak-
en, as although in the case of many of the lepid-
opterce the female is wingless I know of no case
of a wingless female diptera (I am presuming of
course that the pest in question is a fly and not a
moth). The remedy used in Canada is as follows
-Take thick brown paper cut in 3 inch strips,
and of sufficient length to encircle the threat-
ened trees. Coat the strips liberally on one
side (the outside) with a mixure of prin-
ters ink and molasses and tack the paper
round the trunk 3 feet from the ground
doing the work carefully so that nothing can
crawl under and renewing dressing when strips
cease to be viscid, they will remain so however
for a very long time. This process-if properly
carried out, will soon result in extermination of
the pest, though here there is so much practically
wild fruit that we can hardly hope for that, but
if the female is wingless, any individual tree can
be protected. I also notice that the cutworm is
very destructive here ; and may mention a moth
trap much used in England that is effective and
cannot blow out and which is made as follows-
Procure a box about 18 in. by 9 in. by 9in., fast-
en at one end a tin reflector on the inside wood of
the box, then cut the top in half in the middle
and hinge at each end, boring an inch hole in the
centre of the half above the reflector, then put a
glass partition across the middle of the box, knock
out the end opposite the reflector and put in two
pieces of glass slanting inward at an angle of. 450 to
the top and bottom and big enough to overlap
about an inch in the centre tlius
"\

/ ,
There should be a space between them of an inch.
Place a night light in the half in front of the re-
flector, light it and your trap is set, and if in a
good position it will capture great numbers of the
cut worm moth. The light is renewed and in-
sects removed through the hiinged tops. The inch
hole over the light acts as a chimney.
On Mr. Bishop's return he will doubtless be
able to give much valuable information re the
first portion of this letter, for the meantime I
should be glad to hear from anyone else who
knows anything on the subject.
Yours truly,
FRANK WILTSHIRE.

hIr. Editor,-- now send you for publication in
the next issue of the above, if it be acceptable,
the following little episode in connection with the
destruction of the Oronqe Trees here in Bermuda !
A long time previous to "the Scale" having made
its appearance here-it was either in the last de-
cade of years of the 18th century, or the first idem
of the 19th century, that a very determined enemy,
of all such fruit trees, put in his appearance here

the Parish of Paget. The first property that he
got possession of by renting it, was that then
known as Cook's Point, at the Salt Ket-
tle" where at the time, was one of the finest
Orange Orchards in the Island I was so told !
and it was destroyed by said Dr. Cokely. I doubt
if there is any person living now who has ever seen
the semblance of an Orange tree growing on that
property since, which is now known as Mus-
son's Point," or thepublic ferry landing at the Salt
Kettle. The next property rented by the doctor
was the one now known as "IBeveley," also in
Paget, now the property of the Hon. Thos. J.
Wadson, whihb, af that time, also had a very fine
Orange Orchard to the south of the house. This
was also destroyed by him. He then moved
from place to place that he could rent, having
Orange trees about it, which he would and did de-
vastate in the same way. The people here in
those days must have been a very quiet, credulous
and long suffering people to have endured so
meekly, the treatment meted out to them fre-
quently. But a doctor was in those days (I pre-
sume) looked on as a person of so great import,
auce, that but few persons would dare question
his ipsi dixit when pronounced in the matter of
health.

known to but few persons now living but myself,

Boxing Tournament.
Quite a large crowd appeared at the Gymnasium
Hall, on Thursday evening to witness a series of
contests; the Military versus Navy-arising out of
a challenge from Lance-Corpl. Meekins, of the
Royal Warwickshire Regiment.
The first bout was between Seaman J. Kennedy,
O.S., of the Hotspur, and Pte. N. H. Hughes, of
the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Six rounds
two minutes each. Some well directed blows were
exchanged the sailor gaining the decision on points.
The second bout, between Private H. Meekins
of the Royal Warwickshire and W. Gilbert, A.B.,
of H.M.S. Hotspur, proved an interesting one.
The men were pretty evenly matched; the sailor,
the heavier of the two, appeared the stronger. He
had a vicious left-hand swing which on one or two
occasions he used to advantage.
Meekins also showed he was no novice at the
game, was quicker and found his opponent's face
on several occasions, winning the decision on
points.
The final bout was between Lee.-Corpl. Meekins,
champion of the Mediterranean squadron, and
Seaman A. Beecham, A.B., of the Hotspur.
The champion is a fine specimen of an athlete,
tattooed on back and chest he looked business-like.
This was an 8 round 2 minute bout and afforded
much amusement to the audience which was very
orderly. Several blows were exchanged, the cham-
pion shewing his skill in the game.
The sailor, however, put up a good fight and it
wasa difficult matter for the judges to decide.
The gong sounded for an extra round, the decision
finally going to the champion. A novel method
of spraying the face, introduced by one of the
seconds created laughter. No ill-feeling was
shown on either side, our Inspector being present
to keep order and decorum.
Capt. Lloyd, R.A.M.C., and Mr. Lloyd Vander-
venter acted as judges, and Lt. Nicholson, R.G.A.,
as referee. Surgeon Capt. McLaughlin, R.A.M.C..
was time-kee-er.
We hope to see more of these local bouts during
the winter as they help to create a spirit of manly
rivalry.

ESSENCE OF PARLIAMENT.
Monday, Dec. 15th.-House went into Commit-
:ee to consider The Jenkins Boiler Channel Re-
solve, 1902, (Dr. T. H. Outerbridge). This Resolve
provides for the expenses attending the advertis-
ing for tenders, for the deepening and improving
the Channel leading into St. George's Harbour,
by the Jenkins Boiler route, in accordance with
plans and estimates furnished and prepared by the
Colonial Surveyor, and for the expenses attending
the sending of the Colonial Surveyor to London in
connection with said work. Dr. T. A. Outer-
bridge moved to strike out the latter provision,
expressing himself as in accord with the former
part of the Resolve, but not in favour of sending
the Colonial Surveyor to London, considering
such a course as unnecessary, and a useless
waste of public money. Motion lost. Mr. Vesey
reviewed to some extent the history of the move-
ment for the deepening of the channel leading in-
to St. George's Harbour and claimed that his ob-
jections to former propositions for said improve-
ment were reasonable and borne out by the fact
that the Jenkins Boiler route, which he unsuccess-
fully advocated many years ago, was now adopt-
ed, that the voting of money to deepen the chan-
nel without the Legislature being furnished with
plans and estimates to which he objected, had
failed in its object, that the Resolve passed to ad-
vertise for tenders for the deepening of the Chan-
nel by the way of the present Ship Channel, to
which he objected, on account of no plan or esti-
mate being furnished for the extra two foot depth
outside of Fort Cunningham, had proved futile,
and he stated that he would now support a Resolve
which provided for the advertising of a properly
surveyed work. He also pointed out that al-
though Mr. West had spoken so hardly of Messrs.
Coode, Son & Matthews, their suggestions as to
the extra depth of two feet to allow for sand and
undulation had been adopted without a dissen-
tient voice. Mr. West explained that he had often
heard in the House like remarks made as to the
Crown Agents and Messrs. Coode, Son & Matthews
and that the Honble. Member for Devonshire "
was perfectly transparent, and that anyone could
see through him. Mr. Peniston reasserted the
views expressed by him when the question was
last under discussion, and advocated the sending
of a'message similar to one which he had prepar-
ed, to the Governor, if the hon. member who had
charge of the measure did not intend to move the
sending of one of like purport, informing the Gov-
ernor of the course adopted and asking for infor-
mation as to the cost of a dredger to be owned by
the Colony and also the probable cost of the St.
Albans, a dredger now employed at the Dockyard,
if the naval authorities desire to sell. Resolve
adopted without division, read a third time
and passed. Dr. T. H. Outerbridge moved
a Message to His Excellency the Governor inform-
ing His Excellency in substance that the House is
in accord with the views expressed on the subject
in his Message No. 69, as to the adoption of the
Jenkins Boiler route and that provision had been
made for advertising for tenders for the proposed
route, which was agreed to. Mr. Vesey moved
that a message be sent to His Excellency the Go-
vernor asking in substance for information as to
the cost of a dredger to be owned by the Colony
and also whether the dredger now in use at the
Dockyard can be purchased or hired and ou what
terms.

Football.
WORCESTER REGT. OFFICERS v ROYAL WAR-
WICKSHIRE REGT. OFFICERS.
This Match was played on Tuesday at Prospect,
and resulted in a win for theWorcesters by 3 goals
2 tries to one penalty goal. The score does not rep-
resent the game which was fairly even though the
Worcester outsides were better than their oppo-
nents. They weaker in the scrum where they
played a man short. Mr. Street and Mr. Kage
combined excellently together for the winners who
were evidently in better training than the losers.
4
OFFICERS OF THE WORCESTERSHIRE REGT. V OF-
FICERS OF THE ROYAL WARWICKSHIRE REGT.
The above teams played an Association match
at Prospect last Thurnay, the result being a win
for the Worcester's by'2 goals to nil. Immediate-
ly after the Kick off the winners put on two goals
before their opponents had settled down, but
though they had the best of the game throughout
they were unable to score again. The Worcesters
showed more combination than the rivals who
were very slow with the ball when they got it. A
return match will shortly be played.
NOTICE.
A match has been arranged for 2.30 p.m. on
Thursday between Darrell's Island and the De-
tachment 3 R. War. R. at Prospect at Association.

Ventilation.



The Resilia insole expands from
outsole when foot is lifted.

It thus draws in fresh air, through a
tiny valve in the heel, which locks it in.

When insole is borne upon, the air
contained in the cross channels is then
forced up around the stocking, through
a row of perforations, under the hollow
of the foot.

The valve works one way only.

It thus locks the air in, when foot is
lifted, compellingitto circulate up around
the stocking, and out at the boot top.

WE wish to open accounts with
all bona fide Colonial Buyers who are not already
on our books, and on receiving precise details of
their exact requirements, we shall be pleased to
forward quotations for any European or American
goods. Our reference books contain several mil-
lion names, and our extensive connection enables
us to make special terms with the most suitable
wholesale manufacturersof each class of goods, so
that even after adding our shipping commission of
11 to 5 per cent. (according to amount) our prices
still compare favourably with those of the manu-
facturers.
We supply goods made specially to any style,
quality or price ; and on receipt of intent, with
full and clear instructions, and remittance of cash,
or produce to cover, our knowledge of the trade
enables us to place the order at once in the best
hands, and the goods are promptly forwarded.
We make up sample cases of most goods from
5 upwards ; and, as we utilise our long experience
in choosing such goods as are most likely to suit
the market for which they are intended, we confi-
dently recommend buyers to order these sample
cases, for by doing so they will obtain the latest
and most taking novelties.
Consignments of produce receive careful atten-
tion, and we give advances to any extent.
Prompt and painstaking attention the in-
terests of correspondents, together with exceeding-
ly moderate charges, and plain and straightfor-
ward dealings, have enabled us to maintain for the
greater part of a century, a reputation which we
value too much to allow it to be tarnished by the
unsatisfactory execution of a single transaction.
