(nee leavin :I ong Island I have not oeen in a position to make another trial. In this connection I may he DM cloned the following quotation from "The Agricultural News" of recent dote. "The reason for the general reticence towards onion cultivation is entirely due to the want of an established outside m market. It is hire that from Antigua t lie exports of onions to Canada have recently shown an increase. Nevertheless even in Antigua, difficulties of transport and other questions connected with marketing have been felt bv the growers from time to time but the view may he expressed that these difficulties "of transport "ill soon disappear with the beginning of the new steamship service with Canada. The planters of Antigua have decided to push the "industry and to cooperate in order to facilitate the export of uniform produce. Quite recently an organization know ns The Antigua Onion Growers Association", has been inaugurated." This goes to show that th"re were other places in the same condition as ourtetves as regards market, hut also that they have found one in Canada and now tin! thev have transport facilities in sigh' they are determined to push the industry. It is time we nhould do (he same, but I fear it cannot be done by rn operation among the growers Our people have not yet learned how to unite fur the common good. We have no unions. Rut, is it si. together mil of -1,^ question for the Board of Agricu'ture to demonstrate that Canada will take our onions at fj paving price bv experiment! shipments covering a season This and other kindred problems of ilie land need some concentration of (government purpose Bananas Quite .a qwtntitv of this sruit were grown during the year for sale in Nassau. One grower I am informed realized £"70 and I think if he had taken a little troubleto cultivate and feed his trees his returns would have doubl ed There is plenty of room for expansion in this line for the retail price of bananas here is still higher than that of ,\'ew York.

Three cheers were then offered
for the fir-t School Hand of the

some of their caps which

ally of enteritis or summer com-
plaint, the germs of which are
probably carried to the milk by
flies.
All this sickness and death
'can be stopped. This is proved
I by the work in Panama. France
; failed in her effort to build the
Panama Canal because she did
not rightly value sanitation.
This countrv succeeded be-
cause we have practically rid
tie Canal Zone of mosquitoes
and flies.
Today Panama is safer to live
in than any City in the States.
1. Kill a'll the flies that sur-
vive the winter, as soon as they
appear in the spring. These
.are the mother flies, few in
number, but responsible for all
the generations that follow.
One fly killed at this season is
- qua] to millions killed in
Augusl or September.
2. Be sure that no flies either
f( d or breed on our premises.
This must be our universal rule,
foi even ill the best of homes we
have record of garbage cans
that have neither top nor bottom
.. We need to have some
kind of fly trap set in our back
yards, so as to catch all the Hies
on their way from their breed-
ing placi s to our homes.
4. Realizing the dangers of
the house fly, we must cease to
trade with dealers wdio permit
flies to swarm in their dairies,
restaurants, markets, and baker-
ii 1, By withdrawing patronage
from tin careless dealer, vou
protect yourself, and he is forced
to line turns'If up on the defen-
sive. He will in turn demand
that all places in his neighbor
hood be cleaned up. The chil
di n havi gladly co iperated iu

has been presented. In fact, it
is they who have brought sue

(nee leavin :I ong Island I have not
oeen in a position to make another
trial.
In this connection I may he DM
cloned the following quotation
from "The Agricultural News" of
recent dote. "The reason for the
general reticence towards onion
cultivation is entirely due to the
want of an established outside
m market. It is hire that from
Antigua t lie exports of onions to
Canada have recently shown an
increase. Nevertheless even in
Antigua, difficulties of transport
and other questions connected
with marketing have been felt bv
the growers from time to time but
the view may he expressed that
these difficulties "of transport "ill
soon disappear with the beginning
of the new steamship service
with Canada. The planters of
Antigua have decided to
push the "industry and to co-
operate in order to facilitate the
export of uniform produce. Quite
recently an organization know ns
The Antigua Onion Growers
Association", has been inaugurat-
ed."
This goes to show that th"re
were other places in the same con-
dition as ourtetves as regards mar-
ket, hut also that they have found
one in Canada and now tin! thev
have transport facilities in sigh'
they are determined to push the
industry.
It is time we nhould do (he same,
but I fear it cannot be done by rn
operation among the growers Our
people have not yet learned how
to unite fur the common good.
We have no unions. Rut, is it si.
together mil of -1,^ question for the
Board of Agricu'ture to demonst-
rate that Canada will take our
onions at fj paving price bv ex-
periment! shipments covering a
season This and other kindred
problems of ilie land need some
concentration of (government pur-
pose
Bananas Quite .a qwtntitv of
this sruit were grown during the
year for sale in Nassau. One
grower I am informed realized "70
and I think if he had taken a little
troubleto cultivate and feed his
trees his returns would have doubl
ed There is plenty of room for ex-
pansion in this line for the retail
price of bananas here is still higher
than that of ,\'ew York.
The winter crops of corn peas,
potatoes were fairly good but along
in th^ summer produce of sxery
kind was verv scarce,
