If that be true and the hot weather is on us, should any of these dogs be hydro-, phobic, where is the nearest I Patteur Institute? How long would it take the unfortunate victim to reach one; are we able ti scientifically treat in Nassau, a livdropliiibu patient whose l' Id t dot B not enable him to get to one of the above mentioned institutes.-' These are questions that should be taken seriously into consideration and I do hot believe tl>at we should wait on the dog catchers as Cyclist mentioned in his letter, because! should they catch every dog that | is iimning wild on the streets it will i all for the erection of a j very large pound to keep them j in, next, dogs that are licensed ; can bite as they please. The only reinedv that would safe guard the public at Isdone in all civilized cities and towrt is to have dogs in the streets muzzled and that the owners of* all unmuzzled dogs caught running about on the public highways, the owners be made to pay a fine this will soon put a stop to the disgusting dog nusiance that is at present existing in Nassau.

The Mexican situation still
causes anxiety. The delegates
at Niagara apparently have
reached a deadlock. Things
still look awkward for the
United States Government, but
presumably President Wilson's
Administration will, in the
event of a deadlock quietly let
in arms for the rebels and tacit-
ly lend their countenance to
Carranza so that he may smash
Huerta. It would be far from a
picnic for Uncle Sam to try to
Subdue that country. Though
President Wilson was very ad

motives when he warned the

Mr Editor.
Sir.
Mr Smith referred sometime
ago in one of your issues to dogs
biting adults and even children
in the streets. If that be true and
the hot weather is on us, should
any of these dogs be hydro-,
phobic, where is the nearest I
Patteur Institute? How long
would it take the unfortunate
victim to reach one; are we able
ti scientifically treat in Nassau,
a livdropliiibu patient whose
l' Id t dot B not enable him to
get to one of the above mention-
ed institutes.-' These are questions
that should be taken seriously '
into consideration and I do hot
believe tl>at we should wait on
the dog catchers as Cyclist men-
tioned in his letter, because!
should they catch every dog that |
is iimning wild on the streets it
will i all for the erection of a j
very large pound to keep them j
in, next, dogs that are licensed ;
can bite as they please. The only
reinedv that would safe guard
the public at Isdone in all civiliz-
ed cities and towrt is to have
dogs in the streets muzzled
and that the owners of*
all unmuzzled dogs caught
running about on the public
highways, the owners be made
to pay a fine this will soon put a
stop to the disgusting dog nusi-
ance that is at present existing
in Nassau.
Yours.

the reason of the envoys being in
