Continued from Fourth Page. one of the many delightful ways of cementing the ties of kinship between Bahamians and their fellow citizens of the Empire in Canada. Acordial welcome awaits the winter visitor in the cool, attractive rooms overlooking the harbour of The Club. English club life is noted the world over, and here one may come of an afternoon or evening sure of an interesting hand of bridge, followed by such famous local and thirst quenching libations as a "swizzle" or "planters punch." The Friday night turtle suppers at this club are gastronomic events to tempt the most blase epicure. On Hog Island is the Porcu. pine Club and private bathing houses. The Club house has a very attractive out-door dining balcony where the most deli cious dishes the island affords are served under the direction of a noted chef. On moonlight evenings the sail across the harbor to Hog Island, followed by a dance and buffet supper at the Porcupine, is an event to be remembered. A private launch service is maintained for the trans portation of members and their guests. Another and not insignificant Nassau charm lies in the fact that it is the seat of the English Colofnal Government of the Bahama Islands. Instead of dollars and cents, "shillings," "crowns" and "pounds" are the coin of the realm, and one mingles with a cosmopolitan population having* customs and traditions often radically different from those at home. Indeed, when you go to the Bahamas you go abroad as much as the weary tourist who spends weeks and a small fortune in a pilgrimage to Cairo or the Riviera, and even on the famous "Cote d' Azur," you will find no such equable climate. Within easy reach of Canada by cable and wireless, and reached by mail in three days, the man of affairs who wants a real change may winter in Nassau without losing touch with his business interests.

In those days treasure and Buccaneers were usually found in the same nest, and these islands being treasure* of the first magnitude, soon became the camping ground of as picturesque a band of cut throats as ever scuttled a ship. The island of Abaco grew famous for a certain shallow and cunningly turned inlet, up which the pirate crafts could lay concealed, waiting the approach of Spanish merchantmen. This was tlie famous "Hole inthe-Wall" retreat of Jack Hornygold, Morgan, and Ed* ward 'Peach or "Blackboard,' men more of a terror in their day than the immortal Captain Kidd. On Abaco, Andios, Grand Bahama, Harbor, New Provi deuce, and other islands of the Bahama group, the Buccaneers buried the greater portion of their golden loot. Some of this ill gotten treasure has been dug up in past years, but the major portion remains to this day a part of the mystery and allurement of the Bahamas. The American Revolution. In 177'. when the American Revolution was in its infancy, Commodore fisek Hopkins made a dashing foray on the island of Nt w Providence in quest of powder for the Continental Ar my. This island, to-day the seat of the Bahamas' Colonial Government, fell into his hands with an ease which caused rejoicing throughout the budding nation. It was impossible, however, to hold the island with the so after being uTpoSse*.^' fr one day the Commodore wisely withdrewt ne richer for a quantity of powder and other stores fallen into his hands. The next and probably most dramatic period in Bahama history, was during the Civil War, when President Lincoln's attempted blockade of the whole Atlantic coast, sent a golden opportunity to the daring skip_>cr who coul'l tal e his vessel tliTt.amh the I'V'Vra! lines. ^\ Wlfions Ol p"un<1e, of cotton L 1 1 H ill %  > " lionaries and ordinary seamen lived with the riotous extravagance of Oriental princes. The Civil War. Fortunes were acquired so eminent was soon able to pa\ off a debt of $200,000, and build what was in those days the most magt ificent hotel in the tropics. The Royal Victoria as it was called, represented an outlay of over 8130,000, and was erected to the end that Nnssamians might entertain their Southern friends in a sumptuous and befitting manner. There the Confederate blockade runners were feted with royal pomp, just as to day in tl.ose same historic banquet rooms, winter visitors from all over the world are welcomed and handsomely entertained. The Nassau of the sponging, sisal growing and agricultural nirsuitsfollowed the Civil War, and from a commercial standpoint it is much of the Nassau of to-dayWit h the return of peace, Southerners found Bahama memories too delightful to be resisted, and began making winter pilgrimages to these enchanted islands of eternal summer. Northerners to whom Nassau had become a nevei-tobe forgotten name, voyaged thither out of curiosity only to return the next winter with their friends. Canadians and travelers from England and the Continent heard of the perfect Bahama climate, and after a single visit usually fell alike under the islands' Circe like sway. As a natural consequence people of distinction, whose names are known the world over, began making annual winter pilgrimages to Nassau, some of them indeed purchasing small islands or cays upon which to erect miniature pleasure kingdoms of their ovn. Still other wealthy Canadians and Anii'iicans bought laige fruit plantations, or built beau lifnl winter homes in the many charming locations available about Nassau, and it is safe to say that whether they came • to lead a life of "dolce far nicnte," tn/Moafand invite their Souls" as x \\lt Whitman puts it, or to indulA in the strenuous out-door ^["Kiys for which the perfect Bih.n^pwNiiate is a -—?^..^.llfctfTrTrr skies, it can be easily seen that from December to April, New Providence is without rival as a health resoit. Visitors who have known only the chill green surf of the New Jersey and New England coast, have a genuine treat in store for them in Bahama waters. A dip of a morning from the Hog Island beach, takes one into clearly transparent turquoise waves of a temperature considerably wanner than New Eng land waters in mid-summer. And the setting! Skies above of arching indigo ; a pink and white beach of powdered coral; waving palms, with long leaves like silvered pennants in the tropic sun And afterwards, such a feast of fruit, freshly picked o/anges, grapefruit, sa podillas, shaddocks, cocoanufs, bananas, and other delicious products of Bahama soil Or if the time presses thpre is the monster out-door swimming pool nearby, in which to take one's plunge, for which a speedy session on the tennis courts makes one doubly greatfnl. In the fact that it is a tropical coiyitry in which the heat is never too excessive, even at yachtmen. Poiiy racing and polo is the very latest attraction to be added to the Nassau list. Set in a little valley just behind Fort Charlotte, and within ten min utes drive from the centre of the town, Nassau Track is the scene on Friday aftern on miniature, but none the I citing, race meets The conlyt ing pomes are, many of liWn. rugged, half-wild mustangs fi the Out Islands, liable to furnish thrills not included on a m pretentious programme. The Governor's Cup, the Ward Line Sweep stakes, and Florida Fast Coast Derby, are events for which many gentleman riders enter theirponies Polo matches between local Fnglish teams and visiting Canadians and Americans, mak^ a spectacular and enjoyable addition to the racing season. %  With a total of eighty-five square miles, the greater part of which is covered with smooth (•bite coral roads, with carriages motor cars and bicycles being obtainable at an astonishingly low figure, it is not surprising that few people ever walk in Nassau. Nor is there any lack of interesting objective points, the Caves, Lakes Cunningham and Killarney, Grant's Town and South-west Bay being but a few places to which pleasant excursions may be made. The Mysteries of the Deep. The Bahama Sea Gardens, the mid-day, to permit fast tennis, growing fume of which recently the Bahamas have claim to disle(l one () f lne world's foremost Unction. The courts are, in the opinion of visiting exports, scarcely without superior in tlxp world for surface, background, and wind screens, gives ample reason why Nassau is rapidly developing into a great winter tennis centre. The turf courts of the Nassau Tennis Club arc available for play to visitors taking out membership cards, as well as a number of excel hut private courts, which makes it practically impossible to be forced to wait long for one's moving picture concerns to spend months with specially prepared apparatus, photographing their beautiful world for gorgeously colored fish n/id marine fauna beneath the sea, is worthyalone of a visit to Nassau.

It *\uuLl not have been characteristic of him if lie had. He impressed us from the first as a man quick of action, one who realized that the right time to do any tiling that is worth doing is the present, and it is this trait of his character which has doubtless being recognized by the Colonial Of lice and secured for him at a comparatively early age, the distinguished honour of Knighthood. It has not come to us as a surprise, for we expected that ,t would be conferred upon him so soon as he had assumed his New Government, our expectation of course not being based upon our own sagacious foresight, but from intimations from those who vVere intimately acquainted with him and were admitted to his confidence. It must naturally be very gratifying to him to receive this signal mark of appreciation at the hands of his Sovereign and especially at the beginning of a New Year, and we heartily congratulate Sir George, and trust that he may live to enjoy it, for many years together with Lady Haddon-Smith upon whom he reflects the honour. Millions of the human race who speak our language, havetrippingly on the tongue wished their friends and acquaintances yesterday "A Happy New Year'* and many have added the additional words, "A i) d Prosperous." Our acquaintance with our brothers who speak in other tongues than the Anglo-Saxon is very limited, and we and affections centred right here, we are tramps, and must eventually find ourselves in God's poorhouse wherever and whatever that may be. We may present a fair, even a grand appearance, but it is a question of aim and not of appearance. A pilgrim may be dusty, travel-stained, footsore, and anything but attractive in mien and guise but his purpose is noble, and his destiny. These are thoughts that have come to us unbidden, and we jot them down not with a sensational purpose, but with the hop.-of suggesting a profound lesson which the present seems not men I) to suggest, but to enforce.We are now learning our lesson in a hard school, the school, as ii has correctly been called, of Hell. We do not apologize for the term, as though it is not for "ears polite to hear," and if we put aside our mental nausea, we will heartily accept tiiis difmition of War from the lips of those who know it. We have be en engaged for five months and what has this one, or that one, gained! Gained? Do you ask? Ask rather w h i c h has lost the most ? What has the world gained ; what has Be 1 g i u m lost, and shall the loss ever be restored? Some of us are business men, and we know what Profit and Loss means in our ledgers. That is the crucial test of the success of our trantions, large or small, and if we do not apply it in our current transactions, there comes a day when the winding up meets us lace to face. and then, the balance sheet is made up. It is exceedingly commonplace and a trivial matter to read the radio-grams two and three times a day, of five hundred killed in one battle and onethousand friends and foes alike in another. Some who this-niorning said, "A Happy New Year" had* said it for the last time, but they did not know it : and on our side, we can say with Moore. "J.ittle he'll reck if they lei him sleep on: In the grave where a Briton has laid him." and be he a Briton, or an Ally, or even a foe, it can be said of all. And more's the pity. What a price will England have been forced to pay for her victorv. We are not despondent as to the final result, for we as firmly believe that Victory will be t o the Allies, as that we should be disobeying the Golden Rule were we to wish "A Happy 1914, and we desire now to assure you that they have undergone no change since, and renew them of the same quabiy.

A Holiday In the Bahamas

Enchanted Islands of Eternal bummer.
THE first white man to
touch Bahamas shores was
Christopher Columbus, and
curiously enough the goal of
ambitions in the fifteenth cen
tury, has become the
playground of society
twentieth.
The Bahama climate was
soft and equable beyond any-
thing he had known in the Old
World, and realizing the islands'
wonderful possibilities, he made
haste to claim them for his pa-
troness Queen Isabella.
In those days treasure and
Buccaneers were usually found
in the same nest, and these is-
lands being treasures of the
first magnitude, soon became
the camping ground of as pic-
turesque H band of cut throats
as over scuttled a ship.
The island nf Abaco grew
famous for a certain shallow and
cunningly turned inlet, up
which the pirate crafts could
lay concealed, wailing the ap-
proach of Spanish merchantmen.
This was the famous "Hole in-
the-Wall" retreat of jack
Hornygold, Morgan, and Ed
ward' T.-ach or "Blackboard,'"
men more of a terror in their
day than the immortal Captain
Kidd.
On Abaco. Andios, Grand
Bahama, Harbor, New l'rovi-
deuce, and other islands of the
Bahama group, the Buccaneers
buried the greater portion of
their golden loot. Some of this
ill gotten treasure has been dug
up in past ywrt, but the major
portion remains to this day a
part of the mystery and allure-
ment of the Bahamas.
The Amorican Revolution.
In 1776 when the American
Revolution was in its infancy,
Commodore Esek I lopkins made
a dashing foray on the island of
New Providence in quest of
powder for the Continental Ar
my. This island, to-day the
seat of the Bahamas' Colonial
Government, fell into his hands
with an ease which caused re-
joicing throughout the budding
nation. It was impossible, how-
ever, to hold the island with the
ill JliljJJ lUPl^m'nand. so
fter being in pnssw*^) for one
dnv the Commodore wisely
withdraw, the richer for a quan-
tity of powder and other stores
fallen into his hands.
The next and probably most
dramatic period in Bahama his-
tory, was during the Civil War,
when President Lincoln's at
tempted blockade of the whole
Atlantic coast, sent a golden
opportunity to the.daring skip-
r who could, take his vessel
tough the Federal lines.
Millions of pouutW of cotton
iic\ in Charleston, \\il-
wwiMagiieu
ten cents a pound,
figure. A si.igle cargo passing
the blockade meant a fortune
for its owners and crew.
Nassau swarmed with sailors,
Southern refugees, and native
winteUcotton brokers. The shops were
in the packed to the ceilings, the streets
thronged with potential mil-
lionarics and ordinary seamen
lived with the riotous extrava-
gance of Oriental princes.
The Civil War.
Fortunes were acquired so
rapidly that the Bahama Gov.
eminent was soon able to pa)
off a debt of $200,000, and
build what was in those davs
the most magi ificent hotel Hi
the tropics. The Royal Victoria
as it was called, represented an
outlay of over $130,000, and
was erected to the end that
Nissans inns might entertain
their Southern friends in a
sumptuous and befitting man-
ner. There the Confederate
blockade runners were feted
with royal pomp, just as to day
in those same historic banquet
rooms, winter visitors from all
over the world are welcomed
and handsomely entertained.
The Nassau of the sponging,
sisal growing and agricultural
pursuits followed the Civil War,
and from a commercial stand-
point it is much of the Nassau
of to-day.
With the return of peace,
Southerners found Bahama
memories too delightful to be
resisted, and began making
winter pilgrimages to these en-
chanted islands of eternal sum-
mer. Northerners to whom
Nassau had become a never-to-
be forgotten name, voyaged
thither out of curiosity only to
return the next winter with their
friends. Canadians and travelers
from England and the Continent
heard of the perfect Bahama
climate, and after a single visit
usually fell alike under the is-
lands' Circe like sway.
As a natural consequence
people of distinction, whose
names are known the world
over, began making annual
winter pilgrimages to Nassau,
some of them indeed purchasing
small islands or cays upon which
to erect miniature pleasure
kingdoms of their own.
Still oilier wealthy Canadians
and Ameiicans bought large
fruit plantations, or built beau
liful winter homes in the many
charming locations available
about Nassau, and it is safe to
say that whether they came
there to lead a life of "dolce far
niente," to "loaf and invite their
souls'' as Wl|lt Whitman puts it,

but
island resort has to offer the
winter visitor is impossible to
adequately cover, and merely a
brief summary is attempted here.
In a climate the mean or
average of which is 63. the ther-
mometer must most of the time
be below 60, and the out-doorj
atmosphere is not one in which
a delic-ite person may bieathe
safely. The sovereign remedy
for most human ills being ex
ercise in the open air, and the
mean winter temperature of
Nassau being 7077, dry and
with almost invariably cloudless
skies, it can be easily seen that
from December to April, New
Providence is without rival as a
health resoit.
Visitors who have known only
the chill green surf of the New
Jersey and New England coast,
have a genuine treat in store
for them in Bahama waters. A
dip of a morning from the Hog
Island beach, takes one into
clearly transparent turquoise
waves of a temperature consi-
derably warmer than New ling
land waters in mid-summer.
And the setting Skies above
of arching indigo; a pink and
white beach of powdered coral;
waving palms, with long leaves
like silvered pennants in the
Large Kingfish, Amberjack.Bar-
racouta, Bonefish and Poto are
caught in considerable numbers
within a short sail from Nassau,
while on cruise exciting shark
fishing is a matter of daily oc-
currence. Sailing races furnish
still further spot for the visitor;
yathtmen.
1'oViy racing and polo is the
very latest attraction to be add-
ed to the Nassau list. Set in a
little valley just behind Fort
Charlotte, and within ten min-
utes drive from the centre of the
town, Nassau Track is the
scene on Friday afternoon of
miniature, but none the less ex-
citing, race meets. The contest-
ing ponies are, many of tfWwh,
rugged, half-wild mustangs from
the Out Islands, liable to furnish
thrills not included on a more
pretentious programme. The
Governor's Cup, the Ward Line
Sweep stakes, and Florida East
Coast Derby, are events for
which many gentleman riders
entertheir ponies. Polo matches
between local English teams and
visiting Canadians and Ameri-
cans, make a spectacular and
enjoyable addition to the racing
season.
With a total of eighty-five
square miles, the greater part of
tropic sun And afterwards, which is covered with smooth
such a feast of fruit, freshly white coral roads, with carriages
picked qranges, grapefruit, sa motorcars and bicycles being

podillas, shaddocks, cocoanuts,
bananas, and other delicious
products of Bahama soil Or if
the time presses there is the mini-
ster outdoor swimming pool
nearby, in which to take one's
plunge, for which a speedy
session on the tennis, courts
makes one doubly greatfnl.
In the fact that it is a tropi-
cal coiyitry in which the heat is
never too excessive, even at
mid-day, to permit fast tennis,
the Bahamas have claim to dis-
tinction. The courts are, in the
opinion of visiting exptyts,
scarcely without superior in tbf
world for surface, background,
and \\ ind screens, gives ample
reason why Nassau is rapidly
developing into a great winter
tennis centre. The turf courts
of the Nassau Tennis Club are
available for play to visitors
taking out membership cards,
as well as a number of excellent
private courts, which makes it
practically impossible to be
forced to wait long for one's
g
obtainable at an astonishingly
low figure, it is not surprising
that few people ever walk in
Nassau. Nor .is there any Jack of
interesting objective points, the
Caves, Lakes Cunningham and
Killarney, Grant's Town and
South-west Bay being but a few
places to which pleasant excur-
sions may be made.
The Mysteries of the Deep.
The Bahama Sea Gardens, the
growing fame of which recently
led one of the world's foremost

His.
I R (ieorge Had d o n-
Smitfa lias not lost any
time in getting to his
new sphere of labour. It
*ould not have been rharac;
teristic of him if he had. He
impressed us from the first as
and affections centred right
here, we are tramps, and must
eventually find ourselves in
Clod's pooihouse wherever
and whatever that may be.
We may present a fair, even
a grand appearance, but it is
a question of aim and not of
appearance. A pilgrim may
be dusty, travel-stained, foot-
sore, and anything but at-
tractive in mien and guise
but his purpose is noble, and
his destiny.
These are thoughts that
have come to us unbidden,
and we jot them down not
with a sensational purpose,
but with the hop,? of suggest-
ing a profound lesson Which
the present seems not merely
to suggest, but to enforce.W i
are now learning our lesson
in a hard school, the school,
as it has correctly been called,
of Hell. We do not apolo-
gize for the term, as though it
is not for "ears polite to hear,"
and if we put aside our men-
tal nausea, we will heartily
accept this definition of War
from the lips of those who
know it.
We have been engaged l
1914, and we desire now to eight o'clock and yell out
a man quick of action, one
who realized that the rigbtl five months and what lias this
time to do any thing tliati0ne, or that one, gained!
is worth doing is the present, Gained ? Do von ask? Ask
assure you that they have un-
dergone no change since, and
renew them of the same qua-
lily.

Profit and Loss means in our

It is exceedingly common-
place and a trivial matter to
read the radio-grams two and
three times a day, of live
hundred killed in one battle
and one thousand friends and
foes alike in another. Some

character which has doubt-
less being recognized by the
Colonial Office and secured
for him at a comparatively
early age, the distinguished
honour of Knighthood. It
has not come to us as a sur-
prise, for we expected that ,t
would be conferred upon him
so soon as In'had assumed his
New Government, our expec-
tation of course not being
based upon our own sagaci-
ous foresight, but from inti-
mations from those who were
intimately acquainted with
him and were admitted to his
confidence.
It must naturally be very
gratifying to him to receive
this signal mark of apprecia-
tion at the hands of his Sove-
reign and especially at the
beginning of a New Year, and
we heartily congratulate Sir
George, and trust that he
may live to enjoy it, for many
years together with Lady
Haddon-Smith upon whom
he reflects the honour.
Millions of the human race
who speak our language, have

At a meeting of the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce held on
the 30th Dee 1014, the fallowing
concession was made by the
Ward Line Company with re-
spect to the prepayment of

That while the Banks rate of

sent to pay a premium on the
freight money to the extent of I
and one half per (.'lit, which

they will continue to allow the

one of the many delightful
ways of cementing the ties of
kinship between Bahamians and
their fellow citizens of the Em-
pire in Canada.
Acordial welcome awaits the
winter visitor in the cool, at-
tractive rooms overlooking the
harbour of The Club. English
club life is noted the world over,
and here one may come of an
afternoon or evening sure of an
interesting hand of bridge, fol-
lowed by such famous local and
thirst quenching libations as a
"swizzle" or "planters punch."
The Friday night turtle suppers
at this club are gastronomic
events to tempt the most blase
epicure.
On Hog Island is the Porcu-
pine Club and private bathing
houses. The Club house lias a
very attractive out-door dining
balcony where the most deli
cious dishes the island affords
are served under the direction of
a noted chef. On moonlight
evenings the sail across the har-
bor to Hog Island, followed by
a dance and buffet supper at the
Porcupine, is an event to be re-
membered. A private launch ser-
vice is maintained for the trans
portation of members and their
guests.
Another and not insignificant
Nassau charm lies in the fact
that it is the seat of the English
Coloffial Government of the Da
harfla Islands. Instead of dollars
and cents, "shillings," "crowns"
and "pounds" are the coin of the
realm, and one mingles with a
cosmopolitan population having'
customs and traditions often
radically different from those
at home. Indeed, when you go
to the Bahamas you go abroad
as much as the weary tourist
who spends weeks and a small
fortune in a pilgrimage to Cairo
or the Riviera, and even on the
famous "Cote d* Azur," you
will find no such equable cli-
mate. Within easy reach of Ca-
nada by cable and wireless, and
reached by mail in three days,
the man of affairs who wants a
real change may winter in Nas-
sau without losing touch with
his business interests.

curiously enough the goal of

In those days treasure and
Buccaneers were usually found
in the same nest, and these is-
lands being treasure* of the
first magnitude, soon became
the camping ground of as pic-
turesque a band of cut throats
as ever scuttled a ship.
The island of Abaco grew
famous for a certain shallow and
cunningly turned inlet, up
which the pirate crafts could
lay concealed, waiting the ap-
proach of Spanish merchantmen.
This was tlie famous "Hole in-
the-Wall" retreat of Jack
Hornygold, Morgan, and Ed*
ward 'Peach or "Blackboard,'
men more of a terror in their
day than the immortal Captain
Kidd.
On Abaco, Andios, Grand
Bahama, Harbor, New Provi
deuce, and other islands of the
Bahama group, the Buccaneers
buried the greater portion of
their golden loot. Some of this
ill gotten treasure has been dug
up in past years, but the major
portion remains to this day a
part of the mystery and allure-
ment of the Bahamas.
The American Revolution.
In 177'. when the American
Revolution was in its infancy,
Commodore fisek Hopkins made
a dashing foray on the island of
Nt w Providence in quest of
powder for the Continental Ar
my. This island, to-day the
seat of the Bahamas' Colonial
Government, fell into his hands
with an ease which caused re-
joicing throughout the budding
nation. It was impossible, how-
ever, to hold the island with the
" so
after being uTpoSse*.^' fr one
day the Commodore wisely
withdrew-tne richer for a quan-
tity of powder and other stores
fallen into his hands.
The next and probably most
dramatic period in Bahama his-
tory, was during the Civil War,
when President Lincoln's at-
tempted blockade of the whole
Atlantic coast, sent a golden
opportunity to the daring skip-
_>cr who coul'l tal e his vessel
tliTt.amh the I'V'Vra! lines.

lionaries and ordinary seamen
lived with the riotous extrava-
gance of Oriental princes.
The Civil War.
Fortunes were acquired so
eminent was soon able to pa\
off a debt of $200,000, and
build what was in those days
the most magt ificent hotel in
the tropics. The Royal Victoria
as it was called, represented an
outlay of over 8130,000, and
was erected to the end that
Nnssamians might entertain
their Southern friends in a
sumptuous and befitting man-
ner. There the Confederate
blockade runners were feted
with royal pomp, just as to day
in tl.ose same historic banquet
rooms, winter visitors from all
over the world are welcomed
and handsomely entertained.
The Nassau of the sponging,
sisal growing and agricultural
nirsuitsfollowed the Civil War,
and from a commercial stand-
point it is much of the Nassau
of to-day-
Wit h the return of peace,
Southerners found Bahama
memories too delightful to be
resisted, and began making
winter pilgrimages to these en-
chanted islands of eternal sum-
mer. Northerners to whom
Nassau had become a nevei-to-
be forgotten name, voyaged
thither out of curiosity only to
return the next winter with their
friends. Canadians and travelers
from England and the Continent
heard of the perfect Bahama
climate, and after a single visit
usually fell alike under the is-
lands' Circe like sway.
As a natural consequence
people of distinction, whose
names are known the world
over, began making annual
winter pilgrimages to Nassau,
some of them indeed purchasing
small islands or cays upon which
to erect miniature pleasure
kingdoms of their ovn.
Still other wealthy Canadians
and Anii'iicans bought laige
fruit plantations, or built beau
lifnl winter homes in the many
charming locations available
about Nassau, and it is safe to
say that whether they came
to lead a life of "dolce far
nicnte," tn/Moafand invite their
Souls" as x\\lt Whitman puts it,
or to indulA in the strenuous

skies, it can be easily seen that
from December to April, New
Providence is without rival as a
health resoit.
Visitors who have known only
the chill green surf of the New
Jersey and New England coast,
have a genuine treat in store
for them in Bahama waters. A
dip of a morning from the Hog
Island beach, takes one into
clearly transparent turquoise
waves of a temperature consi-
derably wanner than New Eng
land waters in mid-summer.
And the setting! Skies above
of arching indigo ; a pink and
white beach of powdered coral;
waving palms, with long leaves
like silvered pennants in the
tropic sun And afterwards,
such a feast of fruit, freshly
picked o/anges, grapefruit, sa
podillas, shaddocks, cocoanufs,
bananas, and other delicious
products of Bahama soil Or if
the time presses thpre is the mon-
ster out-door swimming pool
nearby, in which to take one's
plunge, for which a speedy
session on the tennis courts
makes one doubly greatfnl.
In the fact that it is a tropi-
cal coiyitry in which the heat is
never too excessive, even at
yachtmen.
Poiiy racing and polo is the
very latest attraction to be add-
ed to the Nassau list. Set in a
little valley just behind Fort
Charlotte, and within ten min
utes drive from the centre of the
town, Nassau Track is the
scene on Friday aftern on

rugged, half-wild mustangs fi
the Out Islands, liable to furnish
thrills not included on a m
pretentious programme. The
Governor's Cup, the Ward Line
Sweep stakes, and Florida Fast
Coast Derby, are events for
which many gentleman riders
enter theirponies Polo matches
between local Fnglish teams and
visiting Canadians and Ameri-
cans, mak^ a spectacular and
enjoyable addition to the racing
season.
With a total of eighty-five
square miles, the greater part of
which is covered with smooth
(bite coral roads, with carriages
motor cars and bicycles being
obtainable at an astonishingly
low figure, it is not surprising
that few people ever walk in
Nassau. Nor is there any lack of
interesting objective points, the
Caves, Lakes Cunningham and
Killarney, Grant's Town and
South-west Bay being but a few
places to which pleasant excur-
sions may be made.
The Mysteries of the Deep.
The Bahama Sea Gardens, the
mid-day, to permit fast tennis, growing fume of which recently
the Bahamas have claim to dis- le(l one ()f lne world's foremost
Unction. The courts are, in the
opinion of visiting exports,
scarcely without superior in tlxp
world for surface, background,
and wind screens, gives ample
reason why Nassau is rapidly
developing into a great winter
tennis centre. The turf courts
of the Nassau Tennis Club arc
available for play to visitors
taking out membership cards,
as well as a number of excel hut
private courts, which makes it
practically impossible to be
forced to wait long for one's
moving picture concerns to spend
months with specially prepared
apparatus, photographing their
beautiful world for gorgeously
colored fish n/id marine fauna
beneath the sea, is worthyalone
of a visit to Nassau. To look
through the clear Bahama water

purple shading into brown, long
green sea cucumbers, finger

I it George Had do n-
Smitb lias not lost any
time in getting to his
new spiiere of labour. It
*\uuLl not have been charac-
teristic of him if lie had. He
impressed us from the first as
a man quick of action, one
who realized that the right
time to do any tiling that
is worth doing is the present,
and it is this trait of his
character which has doubt-
less being recognized by the
Colonial Of lice and secured
for him at a comparatively
early age, the distinguished
honour of Knighthood. It
has not come to us as a sur-
prise, for we expected that ,t
would be conferred upon him
so soon as he had assumed his
New Government, our expec-
tation of course not being
based upon our own sagaci-
ous foresight, but from inti-
mations from those who vVere
intimately acquainted with
him and were admitted to his
confidence.
It must naturally be very
gratifying to him to receive
this signal mark of apprecia-
tion at the hands of his Sove-
reign and especially at the
beginning of a New Year, and
we heartily congratulate Sir
George, and trust that he
may live to enjoy it, for many
years together with Lady
Haddon-Smith upon whom
he reflects the honour.
Millions of the human race
who speak our language, have-
trippingly on the tongue
wished their friends and ac-
quaintances yesterday "A
Happy New Year'* and many
have added the additional
words, "A i) d Prosperous."
Our acquaintance with our
brothers who speak in other
tongues than the Anglo-Sax-
on is very limited, and we
and affections centred right
here, we are tramps, and must
eventually find ourselves in
God's poorhouse wherever
and whatever that may be.
We may present a fair, even
a grand appearance, but it is
a question of aim and not of
appearance. A pilgrim may
be dusty, travel-stained, foot-
sore, and anything but at-
tractive in mien and guise
but his purpose is noble, and
his destiny.
These are thoughts that
have come to us unbidden,
and we jot them down not
with a sensational purpose,
but with the hop.-of suggest-
ing a profound lesson which
the present seems not men I)
to suggest, but to enforce.We
are now learning our lesson
in a hard school, the school,
as ii has correctly been called,
of Hell. We do not apolo-
gize for the term, as though it
is not for "ears polite to hear,"
and if we put aside our men-
tal nausea, we will heartily
accept tiiis difmition of War
from the lips of those who
know it.
We have be en engaged for
five months and what has this
one, or that one, gained!
Gained? Do you ask? Ask
rather w h i c h has lost the
most ? What has the world
gained ; what has Be 1 g i u m
lost, and shall the loss ever be
restored? Some of us are busi-
ness men, and we know what
Profit and Loss means in our
ledgers. That is the crucial
test of the success of our tran-
tions, large or small, and
if we do not apply it in our
current transactions, there
comes a day when the wind-
ing up meets us lace to face.
and then, the balance sheet is
made up.
It is exceedingly common-
place and a trivial matter to
read the radio-grams two and
three times a day, of five
hundred killed in one battle
and onethousand friends and
foes alike in another. Some
who this-niorning said, "A
Happy New Year" had* said
it for the last time, but they
did not know it : and on our
side, we can say with Moore.
"J.ittle he'll reck if they lei
. him sleep on:
In the grave where a Briton
has laid him."
and be he a Briton, or an Al-
ly, or even a foe, it can be
said of all. And more's the
pity. What a price will Eng-
land have been forced to pay
for her victorv. We are not
despondent as to the final re-
sult, for we as firmly believe
that Victory will be t o the
Allies, as that we should be
disobeying the Golden Rule
were we to wish "A Happy
1914, and we desire now to
assure you that they have un-
dergone no change since, and
renew them of the same qua-
biy.

one of the many delightful
ways of cementing the ties of
kinship between Bahamians and
their fellow citizens of the Em-
pire in Canada.
Acordial welcome awaits the
winter visitor in the cool, at-
tractive rooms overlooking the
harbour of The Club. English
club life is noted the world over,
and here one may come of an
afternoon or evening sure of an
interesting hand of bridge, fol-
lowed by such famous local and
thirst quenching libations as a
"swizzle" or "planters punch."
The Friday night turtle suppers
at this club are gastronomic
events to tempt the most blase
epicure.
On Hog Island is the Porcu.
pine Club and private bathing
houses. The Club house has a
very attractive out-door dining
balcony where the most deli
cious dishes the island affords
are served under the direction of
a noted chef. On moonlight
evenings the sail across the har-
bor to Hog Island, followed by
a dance and buffet supper at the
Porcupine, is an event to be re-
membered. A private launch ser-
vice is maintained for the trans
portation of members and their
guests.
Another and not insignificant
Nassau charm lies in the fact
that it is the seat of the English
Colofnal Government of the Ba-
hama Islands. Instead of dollars
and cents, "shillings," "crowns"
and "pounds" are the coin of the
realm, and one mingles with a
cosmopolitan population having*
customs and traditions often
radically different from those
at home. Indeed, when you go
to the Bahamas you go abroad
as much as the weary tourist
who spends weeks and a small
fortune in a pilgrimage to Cairo
or the Riviera, and even on the
famous "Cote d' Azur," you
will find no such equable cli-
mate. Within easy reach of Ca-
nada by cable and wireless, and
reached by mail in three days,
the man of affairs who wants a
real change may winter in Nas-
sau without losing touch with
his business interests.
