UNITED STATES' PANAMA PROGRAMME.
The Panama programme in the United States
Senate is approaching definiteness. Three or four
more formal speeches are to be made in open ses-
sion, which will probably consume most of this
week, after which consideration of the treaty in
executive session will be persistently pushed. The
leaders expect ratification in the latter part of
this month, perhaps by the 20th, since evidence
abounds that the Democrats are getting weary of
opposition as a political issue. The plan is to ra-
tify the treaty first, and then devise means of
soothing Colombia's ruffled feelings, if anything
of that sort can be agreed upon ; but not to make
the ratification of the treaty contingent upon the
success of these negotiations. The Republican
leaders would like to have Panama make a treaty
with Colombia by which, in return for a frank
recognition of Panama's independence, the new
republic would agree to pay a certain part of Co-
lombia's debt, or meet some other obligation of
Colombia's, so as to reconcile Bogota to the change
of status; and then the Senate leaders would
favour having the United States stand back of
this agreement, assuring to Colombia a payment
of whatever sum was specified. Whether Panama
or the United States would actually pay the
money, or in what proportions they might con-
tribute, has not-yet been decided. The general
impression, of course, is that Uncle Sam would
ultimately make the payment, but it would be
more dignified to have it go through Panama
channels, and as a recognition by Panama of old
obligations, rather than as a confession that the
United States owes Colombia anything. The de-
lay in reaching such a settlement has been in part
due to the difficulty in getting General Reyes to
agree to anything definite, or to come squarely to
a trade. It is thought best, in these circumstan-
ces, to ratify the treaty, leaving this question of a
consolation prize to be settled in the light of fu-
ture developments. The Senate leaders believe
that the United States could well afford to pay a
few millions to avoid the possible cost of guerrilla
warfare, and also to disarm the suspicion of other
South American States.
In anticipation of the ratification of the Panama
canal treaty within a few weeks, the Treasury
Department has completed plans for meeting the
large payments which will devolve upon it. Fifty
millions of dollars will be immediately necessary,
$40,000,000 for the Panama Canal Company and
$10,000,000 for the Republic of Panama. Ten
millions more, by the terms of the present law
must he made immediately available for the con-
struction and subject to draft. Secretary Shaw
has decided to call on the national banks holding
Government deposits for 30 per cent. of the pre-
sent holdings. The first call, which will be for
20 per cent., will be issued about February 12.
This will bring in $30,000,000, in round figures.
Another 10 per cent. will be asked for a few weeks
later. Whether this will produce any stringency
in the money markets has been somewhat discuss-
ed The New York holdings are about $38,500,-
000, and those of Boston banks $6,500,000.
LORD WOLSELEY PAYS TRIBUTE TO AMERICAN
ARMY.
Lord Wolseley, writing to a correspondent con-
cerning the falling off of recruits for the British
Army says :
The American Army is the only one I know
of which, like our own, is obtained upon a system
of voluntary enlistment. But the American Go-
vernment, wiser than our own, pay their men
well, and the result is that the American Army,
as far as it goes in numbers, is, I believe, the
finest, army in the world. Until we adopt a sim-
ilar method of obtaining troops our army will
never be in a thoroughly satisfactory state."
THE BAHAMAS TRADE.
In the first six months of last year the import
trade of the Bahamas amounted to $750,000, of
which $600,000 worth came from the United
States. The exports from those islands reached
$525,000, and all but $25,000 were taken by the
United States. The sponge industry is the most
important.
FREAKS OF FRUIT IN CALIFORNIA.
In the Commonwealth of California many
striking results have been obtained from experi-
ments by horticulturists. Efforts are being made
to develop the stoneless plum and stoneless
peach into marketable commodities. One promi-
nent fruit grower of California asserts with the
authority born of knowledge that the elimination
of the shell from the walnut and almond in natu-
ral growth is also a beckoning possibility of mod-
ern horticulture. Such a marvelous achievement
would not, however, be regarded as especially de-
sirable from a commercial standpoint. In the
marts of trade the nut without a shell would be
rather undesirable.
The hyprdizing of plants is always a:i excur-
sion into the unknown, and the pineapple
quince" is one of the strange rophies captured by
painstaking experimenters. This new brand of
fruit has the same. delicate flavour and fragrance
as the pineapple, with the tender flesh of the
quince, and is said to be of striking deliciousness,
whether eaten fresh or in cooked form. Then
there is the Japanese-American hybrid plum, with
its steel-lined, frost-resisting blossomi, while the
very name of Bartlett plum is suggestive
enough of meaty lusciousness to tantalize salivary
glands thousands of miles away from its habitat.
The strange new plum-cot," a cross of apricot
and plum, has also furnished fresh palatal sur-
prise to the fortunate ones who have tasted it.
This plum-cot has the general appearance of
the apricot, but shows a riched colouring and a
more silky down. Its flesh and pit are the rich
crimson and brown oval of the plum. A great
variety of flavors has been developed in this hy-
brid, which is considered the most notable of all
the products obtained by crossing fruits of differ-
ent botanical genera. The peach Ahnond" is
another California fruit oddity. It has a beauti-
ful bloom and a fascinating composite flavour of
rich nut and juicy peach. The plum almond"


must also take rank as a veritable plunt curio,
although its unique qualities have so far been ex-
pressed only by a monstrosity of bloom"-no
fruit having been secured. California has also
produced the "seedless" grape, as well as the
" seedless" orange, but the glory of having made
possible the seedless tomato belongs to the East.
This last horticultural feat is in its way an achieve-
nent of wondrous significance, standing as an ex-
ponent of much other fine work in creating fruit
and vegetable varieties to meet definite, practical
needs. It deserves a brief notice in passing. A
few years ago the tomato "specialists" were
brought face to face with a new problem sprung
upon them by the doctors. The dread disease ap-
pendicitis was caused-so the medicos had decided
-by the presence of foreign bodies in the appen-


dix, such as fruit and vegetable seeds, and their
dictum soon expanded into a popular conviction.
The man who, fearing appendicitis, was assured
by the family physician that his case was one of
severe indigestion only, was of course greatly re-
lieved to find that the trouble was located in his
" table of contents", rather than in his appendix.
But this fear of the graver disease seems to have
become widespread, and Eastern tomato growers
especially, recognizing the deterrent influence
which it would have upon the market, began to
train their forces on a "seedless" tomato. The
final product of this forced experimentation in or-
der to hold a popular vegetable in its hard-earned
niche was a tomato practically free from seeds,
and not only much finer in flavour than its for.
bears," but larger in size and as solid as meat.
The bushs" lima bean is one of the Cali-
fornia exhibits in nature's permanent exposition.
The old fashioned way of growing lima beans in-
volved too much time and expense in the matter
of cutting poles and planting them to dovetail
with modern methods. So the lima bean grower
has turned out a bush" lima bean, which grows
lustily to the convenient height of two feet, never
more, and not only matures much more quickly
than the pole variety, but yields a larger growth
and richer product. The stringless" bean is al-
so another development.
DR. PATTON FLAYS NEW CHRISTIANITY.
Dr. Francis L. Patton, President of Princeton
Theological Seminary, in the course of his lectures
on Fundamental Christianity", in his character-
istic, incisive manner, severely rapped what he
termed "New Christianity," founded on moral-
ity, Tuesday evening in Philadelphia. His lec-
ture was attended by many prominent clergymen
and laymen.
There is a new chemistry, a new psychology,
in fact, almost everything we do have is new. It
is strange if we can not have a new Christianity,
but we do have it. It is not definite. We can-
not make a hard and fast outline of it, only a hazy
scheme. Because it lacks an outline, there may
be some who doubt it exists," said Dr. Patton in
introducing his subject.
We know what our old chemistry was. We
know what it is. Somehow there has come into
our life a change of thought concerning Christ, so
that to-day we don't have Christianity presented
as it was. This condition is brought about by an
ever-changing attitude," the speaker continued,
and then pointed out some of the causes.
The first cause, he said, was a very common
neglect or ignoring of doctrines. Men give doc-
trine a very wide berth. The second attitude that
brought about this new thought was, he declared,
the tendency among a large bcdy of men to pay
special attention to the social side of religion.
"The reason for this is the pathological condi-
tion of social life. First, pe-ople establish a mode
of living-a religion of what ik right and wrong.
Next, a giovrniument is established, followed by
laws of jurisprudence. Great mills of industry
then arise. When you have thus gone through
these stages of development, you find the great
result in economy-production and distribution.
Then in the great life of our cities come the great
pathological conditions. Then the qIue-tion arises,
what are we going to do with the people? Adopt
the scheme of the :-urvival of the fittest, where
the weak die ? a scheme of socialism, or Gospel
scheme and produce the Sermon on the Mount-
the Beatitudes," said Dr. Patton in touching on
that phase.
But the great question of the ministry, he em-
phasized, is not how to deal with the pathological
conditions, but to make men of good families rea-
lize their relation and obligation to society. It is
one thing to Christianize society and quite differ-
ent to socialize Christianity, and while it is a
good thing for the pulpit to teach good morals-a
society free from scandals-Dr. Patton thought
that it is carried so far that the very doctrines of
the Church are interpreted as relative to this.
But I do not say that all men who show these
symptoms are affected in the same way," said the
speaker. "I do not say that men have lost their
old Christianity, but that theie is a new emphasis
and it is in a new place. This change of emphasis
or belief may be due to a new interpretation or
due to a new attitude toward life. Two forces-
philosophy and literary criticism-have met, and
the result is a new Christianity. Under these
joint forces men have come to a new answer of
What is Christ ?' The old answer is familiar-
a piece of supernatural information respecting the
way of salvation.
Now this new ('1hii tiam.ity duenies this answer
in one or two affirn,.tins. Fri.-t, by saying that
Christianity is a moment in a rtagig in a great
chasmic crisis. Second, the self-revelation of God
in Jesus Christ. It says that it is independent of
criticism and rid of methaphysics.
But you can not be independent of either.
When you eliminate metaphysics and sentiment
from your coue.-ption of God, you have nothing
but a human Christ. But let it be understood
when you take this nickel-plated Christianity of
to-day, you take it for what it is, and you do not
have the genuine sterling article.
Christianity has to be more than ethical in
order to be even ethical. It is a great deal more
important to know who Christ is, than what he
said, because the value of the sayings depends on
who he was.
No school of morality can give you an autho-
ritative reason for keeping the Ten Command-
ments. You can not keep moral with a few es-
sentials of morality-fear of friend and society,
fear of sheriff-such thin walls of convention to
oppose itself against a surging wall of passion.
In the interest of morality, honest home and
fireside, we speak for the Old Christianity.
We must rehabilitate every doctrine or we will
be found on the road leading to sheer skeptism.
It is necessary to go back or it is onward to skop-
tism and despair."

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. To T


SPECIAL REPORT OF DEBATES,


DAY No. 52.,
Friday, J;iiar,) 29, 1904.
WAR DEPARTMENT LAND ACT, 1904".
RESUMPTION IN COMMITTEE.
On motion of the Attorney General the Bill en-
titled "The War Department Land Act, 1903"
was resumed in committee.
MR. ASTWOOD in the Chair.
THE HON. ATTORNEY GENERAL-Mr.
Chairman, when this bill was last in Committee
the Bill had been proceeded with as far as the
83rd Clause and the Committee rose and reported
progress, as I had some additional clauses to move
that it was desirable to be in print before they
were considered. There are five new clauses
which have been printed and distributed and I
propose now to ask the Committee to consider
those clauses down to and inclusive of the one
which is numbered clause 87, and also the one
which is the 84th clause in the Bill as originally
introduced, and when we reach that stage I shall
ask the Committee to rise and report progress, be-
cause I have not been able to complete that sched-
ule, which is a very troublesome thing to do, in
time for consideration to-day and I do rot wish
to invite its consideration until it has been print-
ed. I move the following as clause 84 :-
84. And with respect to land held under grant
from the Crown in fee simple conditional, subject
to the payment of an annual interest on the origi-
nal purchase money, usually called a quit rent,
be it enacted that where a part only of any such
land shall be required for military purposes the
same may be acquired in like manner as land held
in fee simply absolute may be acquired under this
Act, except that the apportionment of the quit
rent shall be made in 'the manner provided by
The War Department Lands Act, 1875, with re-
quest to the purchase of such lands by agreement,
and the provisions of that Act shall extend and be
applicable to any portion of any such land when
acquired under this Act there, i-: than by agree-
ment."
The object of that e.Iaune., Mr. Chairman, is to
enable the quit rent, payable in ieiecct of a whole
tract of land where a part of it is purchased, to be
apportioned between the War Department and the
owners of the land.
The clause was agreed to.
THE HON. ATTORNEY GENER-.AL-I move
the ~.u'b clause:-
85. Whenever any glebeland in the actual
possession or occupation of the Rector of any
church living shall be required and taken under
this Act for military pitl. 1,-&, the compensation
to be paid therefore shi !! .e d. ter',iniued -by arbi-
tration between Hn- S. irnli o,' St.te and such
Rector in like manner as in cases of disputed com-
pensation under this Act; and such compensation
shall be paid by the Secretary of State to the Sy-
nod of the Church of England in Bermuda in
trust for the Rector of the parish in which such
glebe land is situated : and the i'yn. 'l may, with
the consent of the Rector for the time being, of
such parish, apply the same or any part thereof in
.or towards thelpurchase or erection of a suitable
rectory, or the rebuilding, enlargement or other
permanent improvement or repair of the existing
rectory, or in inclosing or otherwise improving the
remainder of such glebe land or any part thereof,
or in the purchase of other land in such parish to
be held on the same tenure and conditions as any
unalienated glebe land ; and subject as aforesaid,
the Synod shall as far as practicable invest and
keep invested the amount of the compensation re-
ceived by the Synod in British or British Colon-
ial Government stocks, funds or securities, or in
real securities in the United Kingdom or any
British possession, and shall pay the net income
arising from such investments to the Rector for
the time being of the parish in which the glebe
land in question was situated."
That clause corresponds in substance with a sim-
ilar enactment in The Public Land Act 1875."
The clause was agreed to.
THE HON. ATTORNEY GENERAL-I move
the following as clause 86 :-
86. Whenever any glebe land which has un-
der any Act been sold in fee simple conditional
subject to an annual interest on the original price
or other payment payable to the Rector of the
church living in which such glebe land shall be
situated, the compensation to be paid therefore to
be determined by three arbitrators, one of whom
shall be appointed by the Secretary of State, an-
other by the Rector or officiating Minister of such
living, and the third by the legal holder for the
time being of such land in fee simple conditional,
and the decision of a majority of such arbitrators
shall be final."
That refers to glebe land like the Hamilton
Parish glebe ; a portion of the Paget glebe was
sold out in the same way.
MR. VESEY-A portion of Pembroke as well ?
THE HON. ATTORNEY GENERAL-Yes,
perhaps you are right. Pearman's property. This
clause has reference only to those portions of the
glebe land which has been sold from time to time
under fee simple conditions.
DR. T. H. OUTERBRIDGE-It does not seem
to express that idea fully ; that this land shall
be sold under fee simple conditions. I think that
it is most unfortunate to require a rector or in-
cumbent of the living to have to go round among
these people and get the rent and in a great many
instances they are never paid. You might split
this up in small lots whereby the rector nimilht,
receive some benefit. The clause does not appear
to me to express whether it is sold under fee
simple conditions.
THE HON. AT TORNEY GENERAL-The next
clause deals with it. Iquite agree that it is un-
desirable to continue the existing system. Of
course as far as this Bill is concerned we must
deal with it as we find it. I hope to live long
enough to introduce some measure to do away
with the present unsatisfactory state in which
some of the glebe is held.
The Clause was agreed to.
THE HON. ATTORNEY GENERAL moved
the 87th clause which was agreed to.
THE HON. ATTOINLY GENERAL-Mr
Chairman, I do not propose to move the next
clause among the additiOu:nal clauses, but I move

fnussia and Japan.
Events are marching with ominous rapidity in
the Far East within the last few days. The Rus-
sian reply was presented to the Japanese Govern-
ment on Friday. From the Rmusian point of view
its tenor, was decidedly pacific, but its effect was
the immediate withdrawal of the Japanese Lega-
tion Staff from St. Petersburg. On Sunday the
Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs officially an-
nounced that the Russian Government had ordered
its Ambassador to leave Tokio.
Under these circumstances there is strong prob-
ability that hostilities will have begun before the
end of the week.
An extract which we print this morning from a
late New York taper gives!a statement of the
naval strength of Russia and Japan in the Far
East. Each has seven battleships, the aggregate
tonnage of which leaves Japan with 8,152 tons to
the good, and an average speed of 17.5 knots, just
equal to that of Russia. If, however, the Chen
Yuen of only 11 knots be reckoned out the average
speed of the Japanese battleships is brought up to
18.6 knots, while the tonnage is about equalized.
In armoured cruisers Japan has 15,000 tons more
than Russia and an average speed of 21.5 knots
against 20.1. Against 16 Japanes!armoured cruis-
ers totalling 61,041 tons with an average speed of
19.7 knots Russia has 7 with a total of 39,010 tons
and an average speed of 22.5 knots. In the article
of torpedo boats Russia is hopelessly outclassed,
and has only 12 torpedo-boat destroyers against 19.
It should seem therefore, that at sea Japan
stands a good chance of doing some business.

The Bandmann Opera Company.
After a successful tour in the West Indies the
Band mann Opera Company paid a return visit to
Bermuda last week and opened at the Mechanics'
Hall on Friday evening, with My Lady Molly."
There was far from an encouraging attendance.
The following day Mr. Baudmann advertised the
fact that he intended to curtail his visit to Ham-


ilton and would sail on Sunday for Halifax by the
S. S. Dahoie. Oa Saturday evening The Sign
of 4he Cross" was announced to be played, but
" Florodora" was substituted instead, and the
piece met with a most flattering reception.

Police Raid.
The Hamilton Police made a sudden and unex-
pected raid upon the local taverns on Sunday
night with the result that some four or five tav-
ern keepers will shortly make a public appearance
at the Hamilton Police Court. The first informa-
tion has been laid against Mr. F. Selley, of the
Atlantic Hotel.

Cathedral Organ Guild.
We have been requested by the Secretary of the
Cathedral Organ Guild to state that the net
amount realized from the Tea which was held at
the Masonic Hall on January 14th was 27 12 0.
This is considered a very fair amount, as the wea-
ther on that day was very inclement and, no
doubt, kept quite a number of intended patrons
away. The thanks of the Guild are due to Messrs.
Godet & Young, The Bermuda Furnishing Coy.,
and Messrs. Thompson & Roberts, who kindly
loaned different articles free of charge ; -to the
Masonic Fraternity for the free use of the Hall,
and to Mr. Albert Spurling for free cartage.

St. John's Guild and Sunday School
Teachers' Tea.
Remember the Tea in the Pembroke Sunday
School from 3.30 to 9.30 p.m., in aid of the Sun-
day School Thursday afternoon next.


To the Editor of The Royal Gazette :
Dear Sir,-Next Sunday, Quinquagesima Sun-
day, will again be observed as our Hospital Sun-
day, and no other day in the whole Christian Year
can be more suitable for the purpose ; as the spe-
cial lesson of the Day is Charity, Love, and it
comes just before Lent, when we should feel more
strongly incited to pious thoughts and kindly
deeds. The Collections on Sunday next will be
given to the Cottage Hospital, and I beg to re-
mind your readers that the Hospital has a strong-
er claim to our sympathy and liberal support now
than ever before. It has done good and noble
work in the past, but the (step that its Governors
have now taken, should enlist in its behalf still
more fully our hearty approval and most cordial
co-operation. At a largely attended general meet-
ing of those concerned in its management, the
Ladies' Committee, the Governors and the Medical
Staff, held on the eighth of last month, it was
unanimously decided that one' free patient at a
time should hereafter be admitted "as a stepping
stone to a free ward", whenever possible. I beg
to thank the Governing Body of the Hospital for
this wise and important step, and feel assured
that it will he met by our public in a spirit equal-
ly wise and generous. I know that it will give
them a great deal more anxiety and trouble, a
great deal more thought and care ; I know that
they will need a great deal more money ; but
they will, I trust, receive far more general, will-
ing and liberal support and be enabled to do far
more good. The free ward, to which we may
look forward, and which will become in due time
an accomplished fact, is needed to place the Hos-
pital in its true position and to make it what it
should be to our people. It will make it a bless-
ing not only to the rich but also to the poor. The
great Hospitals of other places consist almost en-
tirely of free wards, their work is chiefly among
the poor. What we ask here is one free ward
containing, say, three beds for women in one
room, and three beds for men in another room,
where the poor, needing surgical help and trained
nursing, may obtain it. If the authorities of the
hospital will keep this steadily in view, the ne-
cessary funds will undoubtedly be forthcoming.
I can see no reason why a grant from the public
treasury should not be asked for and obtained for
such a purpose. A free ward fund has been form-
ed, and its Treasurer, Dr. Eldon Harvey, who
was originally the founder of the Hospital and
has been ever since its institution its guiding
spirit, will no doubt be most happy to receive
contributions to it. If any wish to give to it on
Sunday next, they may distinguish such donations
by wrapping them in paper before placing them
in the collecting plates or bags.
One word more. Would that the Governors of
the Hospital could he induced to drop the word
"Cottage" in its name and to substitute some
more appropriate appellation If they would
call it the Victoria Hospital" or any other sim-
ilar name, it would be much more correctly de-
signated. If it ever was a Cottage Hospital, it
certainly cannot be so any longer. It must take
a higher position hereafter and be the Hospital of
Bermuda.
Yours very sincerely,
GEORGE TUCKER.

The Maryland Tuberculosis Exposition.
HELD AT MCCOY HALL, JOHNS HOPKIN'S UNI-
VERSITY, BALTIMORE, MD., JANUARY 25 TO
30, 1904.
To the Editor of The Royal Gazette:
Having recently attended the above E.xposition
held in this city, it occurred to me that possibly
a short account of the proceedings night be of in-
terest to some readers of the ROYAL GAZETTE,
particularly as the subject is one of such universal
interest not only to the medical profession but to
the community at large. I therefore trust you
may find space to insert in your valuable paper it
you so desire.
The Exposition was au objective presentation to
the people, of the history, distribution, varieties,
causes, cost, prevention and cure of Tuberculosis
or Consumption, and was under the auspices of
the Tuberculosis Commission 0f Maryland. The
exposition was formally opened to the public on
Jan. 25, by Governor Warfield of Maryland, and
remained open for one week, during which time
addresses and demonstration" were made by repre-
sentatives from various parts of the United States
and Canada.
Running over the order of the exposition from
"the programme we come first to a number of
charts showing statistics., Here one learns first
the undisputed supremacy of tuberculosis among
the preventable causes of death-this disease head-
ing the list of all deaths. Its relations to other
diseases is shown in a graphic way. The general
statement of this display of 'charts and diagrams
may he grasped very rapidly, but if the statistics
of tuberculosis are to be studied in detail, almost
all its complex relations are shown in a series of
nearly 100 charts.
Race, age, sex, occupation, heredity, marriage,
food, diink, dwellings ard wages, &o., are all
found in relation with the spread of tuberculosis.
Throughout all the exhibits, charts are used
when er they can be effectively substituted for
figures.
The next exhibit shows the relations of the fac-
tory, tenement, and sweat shop to tuberculosis.
The ,,ot t-t'iking eo.itrili ti,,nt to this exhibit
come from other cities as N.'/ York, Chicago and
BostonI, w which show certain section of the city
whose i:tiabitants are pattiiiilarly susceptible to
the disease and are termed lnuu blocks."
Next c.me the exhibit of -ftate and municipal
prophlylaxis, illustrating the great activities of
boards of health in the modern crusade against tu-
berculosis. Then the S.miatoriai and Dispensaries
and other special devices for the treatment and
prevention of tuberculosis.
The models and I ict'irei in this department
cover the subject fully and sdi e of the exhibits are
in themselves nm,,;t attr;ctive- i.presenting exact-
ly how the patients are cared fr in the various
Sanatoria in Eunlanl, AmeriH:.a and e(pecially-
Germany, where the S.inatorinimu laI become a
Governmental ippaurtena.rce, anal lestoin t annu-
ally large numbers of e nnuumptives to their res-
pective homes and vocations.o


The photographs of S.mnatri.a include among
them the Adirondack Ct.iage Camp, at Liberty,
N. Y. ; the Y. M. C. A. Helt!h Farm of Denver,
Colorado ; the Ordrack ,'ach ot ColoradoSprings ;
Chestnut Hill, Pa. ; Wehrawald in the Black For-
est, Southern Baden, Gerwany and others. One
of the most interesting of the various models
devised for the open air treatment and exhibited
here, is that made by some patients of the Con-
sumptive Insane Patients Camp, on Ward's Is-
land N. Y. city. In theec tents, open to the sun
and air, the patients well protected by clothes,
live practically out of -do1rs the whole year
through, even with the sndo upon the ground,
and breathe continually the pure air, which is
death to the germ causing the disease.
Besides the illustrations of Sanatorium life in
all its details, the Models and pictures show what
means are almost everywhere within the reach of
consumptives. These illustrations come from al-
most everywhere.
Many of those cured of consumption, and eager
to spread the news, sent more to this exposition
than could possibly be shownu.
The importance of this disease cannot be over-
estimated, and although' -ei-ntikt; have not yet
discovered a specific tha) will cure the disease by
killing the germ, 3et they do know that by the
proper sanitary precautions and the simple and
necessary hygenic measures which should be car-
ried out in all living apartments, the disease can
be checked and prevented.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for your space,
I am, etc.

Presentation to Lt.-Col. C. M. Edwards
FROM MEMBERS OF THE BERMUDA PAPER-CHASE
CLUB.
We have much pleasure in publishing the fol-
lowing letter :-
Barbados, West Indies,
26th January, 1904.
My dear Major Bigge,-May I request you to
express to H. E. the Governor and the many kind
friends who joined with him in presenting to me
the very handsome Silver Cigar Box that reached
me yesterday, my great appreciation of their kind
feeling towards me. The memento will always
serve to recall to my mind the very many happy
days spent by me in Bermuda and the many good
sportsmen that it was my fortune to meet with
there.
Believe me,
Yours very truly,
C. M. EDWARDS.

Sketch "Sound Advice Mr W T K Bone and
Miss Maud Crook.
God Save the King.
Each item was well received and the young
people ; Mr and Mrs Bone and Miss Nina Young
have every reason to be thankful We have not
sufficient space at our disposal to enter into full
details of the performance, but will content our-
selves by mentioning the most meritorious per-
formances.
The patriotic chorus Hard to beat," wi:s very
effective, the soloists being Miss and Master Vin-
cent-the one with a Union Jack, the other with
the Stars and Stripes, both flag,. entwined.
The Football Team looked Iremarkably smart
in their football rig and their singing was as smart
and taking as their dress. Miss Alice Henderson
is a clever little reciter and quite charmed her
hearers.
The duet Very Suspicious,H was very taking,
the different well known airs introduced were
much appreciated, the singing was good and the
action accompanying the words was pleasing. Mr.
Jenkins and Miss Crook deserved the applause
that. greeted their effort.
Miss Edith James is a capable violinist and her
selections were decidedly good, each evening
meeting with an encore. Mr. Charles Prisoott
gave a fine rendering of that popular song the
"Warrior's Toast," his powerful and musical voice,
filling the hall, creating quite an animated and
enthusiastic spirit. He was much applauded.
Mr. and Mrs. Bass came in for a warm welcome,
their items as on previous occasions never failing
to please. Mr. Bass was the recipient of an
encore.
Miss Violet Rice played her selection on the
piano with taste and precision, it was a pretty
little item. Mrs. Cunliffe although suffering from
a cold filled her place on the programme to the
delight of everybody who listened to her charming
singing. The sketches produced were both amus-
ing and acceptable to the audience. The senior
boys did remarkably well in their characters,
giving evidence of careful preparation. Mr. Bone
and Miss Crook made the most of their little
sketch, and it was decidedly good, causing many
a hearty laugh.
The Senior Girls were dressed becomingly to
represent the different seasons of the year and
made a very pretty picture. Little Miss Maud
Llewellin as one of the arbitrators as to which
season was best, looked charming indeed. Gladys
Patterson in green, Mildred Sims in white, Mary
Young in yellow and Eul.i Hoiopi in crimson, all
looked splendid and reflected the highest credit on
their parents who so daintily costumed them for
the occasion.
The duet "Proposal" was another happy fea-
ture of this interesting programme, Miss Violet
Rice and master C. Smith, were rewarded with
atn encore. The stage was beautifully decorated
with flowers and well lit with different shaded
lamps and it was generally admired. Mrs. Bone
and Miss Nina Young presided at the piano.
All concerned have undoubtedly every cause to
be gratified with the success of this annual con-
cert.

NO TICE
TO our Patrons
In a large connection like ours it is a hard matter, even
with the exercise of the greatest care, to avoid some little
imperfections. It has come to our knowledge that on various
occasions, either through the carelessness or negligence of some
of our drivers, one or two of our customers have been disap-
pointed. Should any inconvenience of this kind occur in future,
kindly favour us by going to the nearest telephone and ringing
up No. 35. Call our attention to your requirements, and no
matter in what part of the Islands you are, or how small the
order, we will cheerfully deliver same by special messenger.
We would particularly request store-keepers who may run
short of our bread, to endeavour to inform us of the fact before
12 noon, and we can then easily meet their requirements by
our afternoon delivery.

The Stock we beg to offer is all raised from very carefully selected Seed under our personal
supervision, therefore we are enabled to guarantee the Seeds as being of first class quality
and germinating power. The many complaints lately received in Teneriffe, from importers
in Bermuda, doubtless arises from the fact that they have been supplied with seed obtained
from farmers which is generally old and mixed. As we never buy seed in this way we can
rely on giving general satisfaction.
To secure a full supply for 1904, orders should be forwarded without delay so we request
to write for prices and further particulars at once. Best references supplied, the same being
rejuirid from unknown firms.

A Lady Housekeeper.

The CAPABLE HOUSEKEEPER discovers early that the
RESPONSIBILITIES of her position de-mand an amount of fore-
thought and activity, and such a knowledge of individual tempera-
ments, their likes and dislikes, as to tax her endurance and
judgment to the limit of her powers.
The FRET AND WEAR OF MODERN LIFE has invaded
the Homes of all classes, and though the Resourceful Woman of the
Period brings a trained intelligence to the work ot Household
Management, it is not surprising that in her anxiety to provide
for the happiness of others, she burdens herself with a formidable
and ever increasing load of Domestic Worries, which eventually
destroy the delicate nervous organism almost beyond restoration.
Happily, like the experienced Lady Housekeeper, who writes
hereunder. she can avert the breakdown ald regain her Nerve
Force and fortify her system by the use of PHOSFERINE.

Miss F. E. DAVIES (Housekeeper), Ovil o Vlit, Blaken y, G!os., writes :-" The
case in which I found Phosferine beneficial was Indigest on, Are ;ia, Flatulence, and
wind in the stomach. Whatever I too'- it all came lack, so thit my ife was a misery to
me. I went from bad to worse so that my doctor treated me f.r ulcerated stomach and
ordered a vcry light di.t. even that, a litIle milk, and bread and buster did not agree, so
that he chaige.d it. ;o dry bread, well that was th'i same so that he gave it up. After
great suffering I wa- advi-ed by our minister, who-e wife had been benefit d by the use
of Phosferine, to give it a trial. I procured a small bottle from Miss Philpotts (chemist)
and, after taking a few doses, I found relief, after taking two bottles I telt like a new
woman. I have not had occasion to trouble my doctor since, for whenever I feel a touch
of my old enemy I take recourse to Phosferine which soon puts me to rights again. It
is now nearly two years since first taking it. I cannot feel too thankful to Phosferine for
what it did for me, in fact, I consider it saved my life. I have recommended it to several
since with good results.'-Tune 22nd, 1903.
