FIRST AID CLASSES. We have been asked, and are pleased to announce that Dr. A. C. N. McHattie has kindly consented to Rive a course of five lectures to ladies on "First Aid to the Injured. His Excellency the Administrator and Miss Hart-Bennett are evincing a great deal of interest in this important lay-department of Medicine and Surgery, and through the kindness of Mis Excellency, the commodious Ball Room at Government House, has been granted for the purpose of the lectures. Should a sufficient number of entries be received to warrant the enterprise, the lectures will be given weekly in the evening beginning early next month. Ladies wishing to attend are invited to send in their names to Miss Hart-Bennett, Miss Wells-Durrant or Miss Ailse Lee by Thursday the 28th inst, in order that the necessary arrangements may be made ami text books obtained. An examination for those wishing to be certificated will be held at the end of the course, and an entrance fee of two shillings to cover the cost of books &c, will be charged.

The following has been kindly sent to us for publication this morning. The following telegram has been sent to the Secretary of State for the Colonies by the Administrator. 26th January, 1915. "News of successful naval engagement received here with enthusiasm. People of Baha mas send congratulations and thanks for details supplied in your telegram twenty fourth. HART.BBNNETT. Mr. D. S. Bowen, Sanitary Inspector, has been offered, and has accepted a similar appoint* ment at Sierra Leone to that which he holds here. The sal ary is £i->o pier annum rising after one year's service by annual increment of £10 until it reaches £350. Free quartets arc provided, and four months leave of absence in each year on full pay, with free passage to and from England. We congratulate Mr. Bowen on his appointment and trust that he will find the climate congenial. Mr. Bowen has resided in this Colony for several years and during the time filled several offices with credit to himself and advantage to the Public Service. He has been found to be pains talcing, efficient and thorough, and lias therefore risen by merit and we shall be very much mistaken if he does not attain greater distinction in the future. He will leave on Thursday next for New York en route to Sierra Leone and we heartily wish him Bon Voyage throughout. The funeral of the late Mr. John Russell took place on Saturday. A service was held at Zion Baptist Church conducted by the Minister assisted by Rev. H. F. Dann. The interment took place at the F.benezer Churchyard and was conducted by Rev. F. J. Paine, Rev. C. A. Dann participating in the service. The family of Mr. Russell desire to express their sincere thanks for the many tokens of sympathy which have been shown to them on all sides. Will all friends kindly take this as their cordial acknowledgment ? —:o:— ENTERTAINMENT AT S. MATTHEWS A very agreeable entertainment took place at the St. MatthewsSchool Room last night The school children who were the sole actors deserve especial praise for the very creditable manner in which they carried out the programme. The strong cast of the evening was the fairy court, and the amusing adventures of all the nursery favourites from Bo Peep to Jack and Jill were represent ed and had penance or reward meted out to them from the tinsel authority of Titania and Observer. The hall was crowded and the audience were indeed very enthusiastic and gave the children well merited applause. Mr. I.ovclliias to he congratulated on the sucre;s of this diversion as only one who lias had the experience can comprehend what it means to prepare a company of children for the stage. INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF CORRESPONDENCE It is always a pleasure to note the mental improvi ment of the youth of the country and following on young Clarke's favourable shewing in the I. C. S. examinations we feel much gratified in placing Master Arthur Carey the youngest son of Mr. Carey on the list of successful students. Though but a few months have passed since he was enrolled young Carey has the I). E. Bookeeping scholarship No. 1 with an average percentage of 98. We congra tulate Mr. Carey oil this record especially as Carey has to work for his living and is busily engaged always. We will be glad to report other instances of mental progress and wish Mr. Christie every success in his efforts to bring a higher education to the young people of the Bahamas.

BRITISH LION WAITED
LONG TO SPRING ON FOE
DECLARES BERNARD SHAW
BIDED HIS TIME UNTIL HE SAW
GERMANY WAS REAOY TO STRIKE
FRANCE, BUT IT IS HIS
LAST BLOW.
LondonGeorge Bernard
Shaw contributed to the New-
Statesman an article entitled
"The Last Spring of the Old
Lion."
After referring to the French
"Yellow Book' in a critical
way, he says :
"From the authentic part of
this "Yellow Book' thereemergt s
a pictuic so stirring that it is
amazing to me that no English-
man lias yet rescued it from its
wrappings of official correspon-
dence, for in it you see the old
British lion, the lion of Waterloo,
the linn -if Blenheim, the lion of
l'rafaigar, making his last and
OlOSt terrible and triumphant
springs.
""You see him with his old craft
and his old omrage and strength
unimpaired, "with his old amazing
luck, his old iagll - St of aim, in-
old deep-l\ing and Subtle instinct
that does better without great men
at a pinch than Ins em ours do with
them,
"For centuries now the lion has
held to ins one ide < thai none
shall be gieater than England on
land and noii'- is great on sea. To
him it has been nothing whether a
rival to England was better or
worse than England.
IMerrmg to the results of the
battle of Waterloo, be says:
"l or ion yean Bfter that no
Englishman knew what it was to
turn pale at the possibility of an
invasion. For more than two gen-
erations of Englishmen the lion lay
and blasted .and smelt no foe that
a pat of his paw COUld not dispose
of. Then a rival UN'. \i:,iin bat-
tles more tetnhle than Waterloo
were fought against the same foe.
Hut it was not England that won
then.
"The lion rose and began to
watch. The old instinct stirred in
him. He heard the distant song.
'Deutschlano. ubei Allies.' Ami
something in him said : 'Never
that while I live.' The rival huilt
a warship, built another warship,
and yet another, and openly dial-
lenged 'lie sovereignty of the sea.
Bluffed << mi.Miv.
"That w is the end. From that
moment ij was only a question of
when to spring, for a lion with
that one idea at heart, with that
neeessity deep in hi* very bowels,
must bo craf'y ; he must win at all
hazards, no matter how lone he
crouches before the righl moment
comes.
"You see it Coming in the 'Yel-
low Book'Germany with Aus-
tiia, and Russia with France and
jlaly, earh with a finger on the
| trigger ; France avoiding the fight;
( Russia gradually arming herself
land training herself for it; Austria
Charming man with a very charm-
ing wife. There Was our own Sir
Edward Grey, also a charming
man, always ready to talk peace
Speculating.in if; aW, even Austria quite sincerely at tea parties with
afraid "f the lion's riva,I Germany, i all Europe if necessary. The lion
'France, alwaysmnnoeuving for knew in his heart that Grey knew
peace and being outnumbered, at
last finds that Germany, defi int of
her and of Russia,contemptuously
sure that she can crush the one
with her right hand and the other
with her left, yet feats the lion and
well knows that tf he comes to the
aid of France and Russia '.he odds
will be too terrible even for the
victors of Sedan.
"France sounds the lion on the
subject. The lion, grim and cau-
tious, does not object to his naval
and military commanders talking
to the cororn inders of Franee discussing what might happen an'
how, in that case, things might he
errstnged, France suddenly bullies
Germany ; tells her to clear out of
Morocco and clear out --harp.
"Germany looks at the lion and
sees him with Ins quivering tail
about to spring. The odds aie too
great, with mortification tearing
at her heart Germany clears out
successfully bullied for the first
time since the rue of her star.
Lion Then Bidea His Time.
"But theie are new forces that
the lion most take account of. If
his rival "ill not fight it is not
easy to attack bun, and Germany,
will not light unless the lion can
he detached from France and Rus-
sia.
"Every time Germany is humil-
iated the lion is balked, Austria's
Balkan speculation is postponed
and Russia does not know whither
the is balked or respited. The lion
broods and broods, and deep in his
nub-consciousness there stirs the
knowledge that Germany will
never fight unlessunlessunless
The lion does not quite know
what, but dismterewid observers
Complete the sentence hus:
'Unless Germany nan be persuad-
ed that the lion is taking a lancy
to Germany snd is becoming a
bit of a pacifist and will not fight.'
"Then the luck that basso sel-
dom failed the lion si nt I.iehnow.
sky as German ambassador to
London. I bete was nothing wrong
in being very friendly to a Prince
nothing of the ways of lions and
would not approve of them if he
did, for Grey had ideas instrud of
the one idea. And I.ichnowsky
knew so touch less of the ways of
lions than Grey was that he actu-
ally thought Grey was the lion.
The lion said: I'lus is not my
doing; England'* destiny has pro-
vided I ichnowsky; England's star
is still in the zenith."
"I.ichnowsky thought Grey every
day a ginater statesman and a
more charming man and became
eveiy day more persuaded that the
lion's heart hid changed and that
he was becoming friendly. And
Grey thought I.ichnowsky
perhaps rather a fool, but was none
the less nice lo him.
" Then there was Asquitb, the
lucid lawyer, the man who could
neither reme.nber the past or fore
seethe future, yet was always a
Yorkshire man with ancient, Eng-
lish depths behind his mirrowlike
lucidity in which something of the
lion craft COU|fl lodge without
troubling the sufJacc of the mir-
II.w. Asquith suddenly found in
himself an unaccountable but
wholly irresistible impulse to bide
and deny those arrangements with
the French commanders which had
frightened Germany. He said to
Grey: You must go to the French
and say that we are not bound to
anything. Grey, the amiable lover
o| pence, was delighted,
"lie went and the Fiench with
impeiturble politeness made
note of it.
"And then Asquith and Grey,
with good conscience, found them-
selves busily persuading the world
that the lion was not bound to
help France and Russia when the
great day of Armageddon came.
They persuaded the nation, they
persuaded the house of commons,
they persuaded their own cabi-
net; nnd at last, at last, they per-
suaded Germany. And the lion

We have been brought face

FIRST AID CLASSES.
We have been asked, and are
pleased to announce that Dr.
A. C. N. McHattie has kindly
consented to Rive a course of five
lectures to ladies on "First Aid
to the Injured.
His Excellency the Adminis-
trator and Miss Hart-Bennett
are evincing a great deal of in-
terest in this important lay-de-
partment of Medicine and Sur-
gery, and through the kindness
of Mis Excellency, the commo-
dious Ball Room at Govern-
ment House, has been granted
for the purpose of the lectures.
Should a sufficient number of
entries be received to warrant
the enterprise, the lectures will
be given weekly in the evening
beginning early next month.
Ladies wishing to attend are
invited to send in their names
to Miss Hart-Bennett, Miss
Wells-Durrant or Miss Ailse Lee
by Thursday the 28th inst, in
order that the necessary ar-
rangements may be made ami
text books obtained.
An examination for those
wishing to be certificated will
be held at the end of the course,
and an entrance fee of two shill-
ings to cover the cost of books
&c, will be charged.
If the reckless driving of Mc-
to-cars is persisted in, there
will doubtless be many oppor-
tunities afforded to the gentle
sex to play or rather, work "the
Good Samaritan."
The following has been kind-
ly sent to us for publication this

HART.BBNNETT.
Mr. D. S. Bowen, Sanitary In-
spector, has been offered, and
has accepted a similar appoint*
ment at Sierra Leone to that
which he holds here. The sal
ary is i->o pier annum rising
after one year's service by an-
nual increment of 10 until it
reaches 350. Free quartets
arc provided, and four months
leave of absence in each year
on full pay, with free passage
to and from England.
We congratulate Mr. Bowen
on his appointment and trust
that he will find the climate
congenial.
Mr. Bowen has resided in this
Colony for several years and
during the time filled several
offices with credit to himself
and advantage to the Public
Service. He has been found to
be pains talcing, efficient and
thorough, and lias therefore ris-
en by merit and we shall be very
much mistaken if he does not
attain greater distinction in the
future. He will leave on
Thursday next for New York
en route to Sierra Leone and
we heartily wish him Bon Voy-
age throughout.
The funeral of the late Mr.
John Russell took place on
Saturday. A service was held at
Zion Baptist Church conducted
by the Minister assisted by Rev.
H. F. Dann. The interment
took place at the F.benezer
Churchyard and was conducted
by Rev. F. J. Paine, Rev. C. A.
Dann participating in the ser-
vice.
The family of Mr. Russell de-
sire to express their sincere
thanks for the many tokens of
sympathy which have been
shown to them on all sides. Will
all friends kindly take this as
their cordial acknowledgment ?

ENTERTAINMENT AT S. MATTHEWS
A very agreeable entertain-
ment took place at the St. Mat-
thewsSchool Room last night
The school children who were
the sole actors deserve especial
praise for the very creditable
manner in which they carried
out the programme.
The strong cast of the evening
was the fairy court, and the
amusing adventures of all the
nursery favourites from Bo Peep
to Jack and Jill were represent
ed and had penance or reward
meted out to them from the
tinsel authority of Titania and
Observer.
The hall was crowded and
the audience were indeed very
enthusiastic and gave the chil-
dren well merited applause.
Mr. I.ovclliias to he congra-
tulated on the sucre;s of this
diversion as only one who lias
had the experience can compre-
hend what it means to prepare
a company of children for the
stage.

It is always a pleasure to note
the mental improvi ment of the
youth of the country and follow-
ing on young Clarke's favour-
able shewing in the I. C. S. ex-
aminations we feel much grati-
fied in placing Master Arthur
Carey the youngest son of Mr.
Carey on the list of suc-
cessful students. Though but a
few months have passed since
he was enrolled young Carey
has the I). E. Bookeeping schol-

FRIENDLESS GERMANY
Some Germans have been ask-
ing themselves why Germany is
today without a friend among
the nations? They find the ques-
tion difficult to answer because,
like the rest of their fellow-
GermanS, they cannot see any
reason why Germany should be
friendless. Because Germany has
done what she thought right by
methods that commended them-
selves because they seem to be
necessary to accomplish their
end, individual Germans cannot
understand that to other nations
these methods and their object
are alike hateful and oppresivc.
Hence their bewildered surprise
and the shock that followed up
on realisation that Germany,
far from commanding respect
and
nation
Under the domination of
Prussian militarism the whole
German people had become in-
fatuated with the notion that
force had raised them in little
more than a generation from
comparative insignificance as a
world power into a position
which entitled them to enter a
bold challenge for world su-
premacy. Force to use the
words of Prof. Bergson, had
wrought this miracle, had given
them glory and riches. There-
fin''force must contain within I
itself some mysterious or divine
virtue of which the (ierraan was
the ordained possessor and so
destined to impose himself and
his "kultur"on other nations, no
matter at what cost. The end
justified the means.
The doctrine of force has,
as its necessary concomitant, its
gospel of lies and deceit. This is
again, signally shown in the
case of German diploma ncv dur-
ing the eventful days that fol-
lowed Austria's ultimatum to
Servia. The British ambassador
at Berlin was assured by the
imperial chancellor that the
German Government knew
nothing of thai ultimatum and
was not wholly in accord with
its terms. But in his examination
of the records submitted for the
various nations now engaged
in war, Mr. James M.Beck, the
distinguished United States law-
yer who has assumed the func-
tions of a final arbiter, estab-
lishes clearly by the admissions
of the German foreign office
that it was consulted by Aus-
tria previous to delivery of the
ultimatum, and that it not only
approved of it butgave Austria
carte blanche to proceed. In
simple fact the German Govern-
ment wanted war and made
Austria its catspaw.
