As we pointed out some time ago various countries of the w irld are falling short in the production of foodstuffs. Already in many countries masses of people live on the verge of starvation. The prue of necessan< s is rising continually, partly owing to this scan ity of food, and all countries of the world, including our own Colo.iy, should seek to increase the yield of those articles of food which they are able to grow. Our Board of Agriculture has only a limited amount of money t" Spend, and the method of spending it referred to above se. ms to us to be likely to give us good value for the money spent. The Board has a hard task before it, but we feel that 8 good start has been made.

To Hit Excellency Governor Basil

The Humble Address of the
House ol Assembly of the Bahama
Islands
May it plane Your Excellency.
We, His Majesty's dutiful and
loval subjects the House of Assem-
bly of the Bahama Islands, be to
thank Your Excellency for the
Speech with which Your ExcelL
encv has been pleased to open the
present session ol the Legislature
Hnd to express our sincere pleasure
at meeting Your'.Excellency for the
first time at tne beginning of a le-
gislative session.
We are devoutly thankful that
under Divine Providence we have
been spared fiom the desolation of
hurricanes and the ravages of dis-
ease.
We are pleased to learn that the
Sponge industry continues in a
satisfactory condition and we
heartily endorse the policy of the
Marine Products Board. The Sisal
industry merits intelligent con-
lideration and any measure, which
after careful and mature delibera-
tion, appears likely to foster this
mainstay of the peasant proprietor,
wiM receive our most sympathetic
attention.

pineapple industry, the oldest of
our agricultural pursuits, should

As we pointed out some time
ago various countries of the
w irld are falling short in the
production of foodstuffs. Alrea-
dy in many countries masses of
people live on the verge of star-
vation. The prue of necessa-
n< s is rising continually, partly
owing to this scan ity of food,
and all countries of the world,
including our own Colo.iy,
should seek to increase the yield
of those articles of food which
they are able to grow.
Our Board of Agriculture has
only a limited amount of money

spending it referred to above

us good value for the money
spent. The Board has a hard
task before it, but we feel that
