CREATING A NECESSITY Sir Isaac Newton 1reported to have said, "I will make none cessities for myself." He was wise. Every added necessity is an added slavery. The man who forms a habit low Inch he must ever after pay a tribute in mom v and health, is paying exceed ingfy dear for the romforl he gets out of it. The man with the fewest necessities, the fewest habits, the fewest slaveries, is | the most normal, the most efli ( I'M, the most happy in the long run. \\ hj d( lib iaii l\ create % %  • necessity bv forming a narcotic habit 5 Nassau 201 h tune 10,14 D ear Sir, Some time ago there frequently appeared in your vained paper the following legend, "A RACE IS NO BETTE R THAN ITS WOMEN" which gave me, as it must have given Others, food for hours of thought and reflection whenever it appeared. judging from the moral con ditipn of our young women of all classes I consider 1 hat our very existence as a people is threatened. So important is ibis subject, j the moral condition of our girls, that I venture to ask (hat vou I will publish 1 he accompanying article taken from Tin Colonial \and Provincial Rtporttr, of Free l To vn, Sierra Leone, Africa. This article is so apposite to conditions here that it might well have been written for this island.

We think it hardly necessary] for us to explain that in expressing an unfavourable "pinion of I he moral character of our girls arc mil making a sweeping condemnation of the entire womanhood of our country Among the things that we are .aid ever shall be grateful for is the fact that there are still "mothers in Israel;" Creole girls, wh"-e char.K ter is above reproach; modi Is of womanhood, whose charm of manners lias won the admiration of their countrymen as well as foreigners of'.he most fastidious taste. As an instance of the high tiibute that his been paid to Sierra Leone womanhood, the late Honourable Mr. Cummins, one lime Senatoro| the Republic of Liberia, remarks in a speech delivered in the United States of America and which has recently been published among B collection under the tittle of "'Masterpieces of Negro Eloquence," that among the happiest and most treasured memories were tin* day] he spent with female frien .is amid the refining inllu e;,ccs of Freetown home-life. While taking coinage from the reassurance such an expression gives us. however, we must not blind our eyes to the fact that as regards the generality of our country women the moral tone is very unhealthy. I.ven the most moderately observant per son will bear us out in our state ment.

CREATING A NECESSITY
Sir Isaac Newton 1- reported
to have said, "I will make none
cessities for myself." He was
wise. Every added necessity is
an added slavery. The man who
forms a habit low Inch he must
ever after pay a tribute in mom v
and health, is paying exceed
ingfy dear for the romforl he
gets out of it. The man with the
fewest necessities, the fewest
habits, the fewest slaveries, is |
the most normal, the most efli

D ear Sir,
Some time ago there fre-
quently appeared in your vain-
ed paper the following legend,
"A RACE IS NO BETTE R
THAN ITS WOMEN"
which gave me, as it must have
given Others, food for hours of
thought and reflection whenever
it appeared.
judging from the moral con
ditipn of our young women of
all classes I consider 1 hat our
very existence as a people is
threatened.
So important is ibis subject,
j the moral condition of our girls,
that I venture to ask (hat vou
I will publish 1 he accompanying
article taken from Tin Colonial
\and Provincial Rtporttr, of Free
l To vn, Sierra Leone, Africa.
This article is so apposite to
conditions here that it might
well have been written for this
island.
May we hope that its publi
cation may lead the preachers
and teachers of the people, WO
think and act and live for the
principle of a white life joy two

We think it hardly necessary]
for us to explain that in express-
ing an unfavourable "pinion of
I he moral character of our girls
arc mil making a sweeping
condemnation of the entire wo-
manhood of our country
Among the things that we are
.aid ever shall be grateful for is
the fact that there are still
"mothers in Israel;" Creole girls,
wh"-e char.K ter is above re-
proach; modi Is of womanhood,
whose charm of manners lias
won the admiration of their
countrymen as well as foreign-
ers of'.he most fastidious taste.
As an instance of the high tii-
bute that his been paid to Sierra
Leone womanhood, the late
Honourable Mr. Cummins, one
lime Senatoro| the Republic of
Liberia, remarks in a speech de-
livered in the United States of
America and which has recently
been published among B collec-
tion under the tittle of "'Master-
pieces of Negro Eloquence,"
that among the happiest and
most treasured memories were
tin* day] he spent with female
frien.is amid the refining inllu
e;,ccs of Freetown home-life.
While taking coinage from the
reassurance such an expression
gives us. however, we must not
blind our eyes to the fact that as
regards the generality of our
country women the moral tone
is very unhealthy. I.ven the
most moderately observant per
son will bear us out in our state
ment. It is a general complaint
with the male section of the
community that the girls are
"no use;" that "steadiness" or

as the greater portion of a child's

you cannot be held responsible
for fnilingsin his conduct. This,
however, is an unworkable prin-
ciple so far as our country is con-
Cerned. In the majority of cises
tin home influence is not cal-
culated to improve the morality
of your wards. So the only alter'
na ive is fur you to take an addi-
tio ial duty upon yourseh es and
be both parents and teachers to

your boys to reverence woman

Sir.
The cutting of hair was per*
formed by men as far back" as
Ed .ard IV, who did not only
cut hair but even bleed and per-
formed other min >r operatii ns
as we see from some relic of the
past through the barber's pole
(punted in alternate stripes of
red and white t(> represent the
bio xly limb and while bind
age), and the bleeding dish
shaking in the wind. That an-
cient emblem must remind you
1I111 surgeons spring from them,
ivll were then called Harber-
Surgeousand practised Surgen
nlone and were recognised from
tii > hi most countries, barbers have
kept pace with the Surgeons
Sspci i,ill\ in regards to the
sterilisation of their razors,
COITlbs, brushes, towels and all
other materials they use on per
sons under their care. In up lo
date cities barbers are licensed
and before said license is grant 1
ed an examination as to their I
knowledge about sharpening a \
razor, the cleaning of their shops
and tteriliz ition of their iii
st rumen ts, towels &c used
But Mr. liditor, the barbers of
Nassau are the means of dis-
I seininating divers diseases. The
Pediculosis capitis -a little an-
noying insect is transported in
, quantities ad libitum from one
head to another ; the Tenae Sy
Icosisand the Tenae Tonsurans
ring worms of the beard an I
head are transplanted from one's
(chin or head into another and
and last but not least the Spirt)
cliaeta pallida is innoculated
into the blood of the innocent.
These are only a few of the
many diseases transmitted from
one person to another, while
the two former may be easily
got rid of. Yet the spiro chaeta
pallid.1 is not by any means a
pleasant and comfortable thing
to entertain in one's blood as it
is transf srred down to the third
and fourth generation. We
hope the Hoard of Health will
take some steps to rectify this j
lax and careless method of our <
barbers and their shops.

Mr. Editor,
It is inserted below the tele-
phone directory "when calling
give numbers not names" this
we can plainly see is done to
prevent the operator from being
detained especially when busy
nevertheless in cases of emer-
gency when one cannot find the
numbei they are hurriedly look-
ingfur, and having no 1 1 forma-
tion bureau I do not think it
would detract much time, if the
operator, should lie Courteous
enough, to give tiie number
partv is seeking, especially when
the directory does not contain
an enormous quantity of names.
Suppose Mr Editor my house
was on fire an I I wanted the
hire Department, after looking
down letter "F" I rould not find
the Fire Department, I then ask
the operator to connect me with
the Fire Department as it is
urgent my house is on liie, the
operatoi will blankly refuse to
do so before I find the number
because it is the rule to look up
number first. 1 have to leave the
Telephone and hurry to the Eire
Department by the time they
arrive great damage is done, or
again Mr. Editor in case my
husband was out and a burglar
or the Bonnet man broke into
my house and I wanted the ]
Police department then I would
have logo all the way in the
stieet to hunt up a police be/ore I
could have protection yet ih re
is a phone in ny house. I do not
say >ir that we should exp Cl
the oner nor to look up every
private concern or residi nee but
there are a few Public in-
stitutions with regard to which
a certain amount of common
sense should be used especially
when life and property are at
Stake. Through the above men
tioned causes it is not at all en-
couraging for subscribers or
those intending to be so to have
one of these instruments in our
homes useless and when urgent-
ly needed cannot be utilized. I
trust this matter will be taken
into consideration.
Thanking you for space,
