There will be a Church parade of the Contingent on Sunday morning at 11 o'clock to the Cathedral. — :o— Dr. R. W. Albury will accompany the Contingent to Jamaica as Denial and medical aid. — :o: — Between 5 and G o'clock yesterday evening the Contingent marched out to "The Ridge" on the Village Road whae they were received by Dr. J. B. A1 bury, the owner, assisted by Mr. C. W. Mather. After the men had rested awhile a generous and sumpJ tuous repast was served them : on the veranda which they' heartily enjoyed. The Police Band was in attendance on tha lawn and '"liv.ncd the gastronomic j ( sen ises. The Commandant Crawford, Mr. Frank Holmes, Drs. \V. A. Pitt and J. J. Culmer were present. Al tlie end of the repast Mr. Holmes addressed the company, the men particularly in an encouraging and cheerful speech. Dr. Albury replied and assured the men that wherever they might be, or whenever there is anything that he could do for them they must not hesitate to call upon him. Three cheers were given for the King the band playing the National Anthem, three cheers for the Bahamas Contingent with appropriate music and three cheers for Dr. Albury the band playing "I 111 he's a jolly g< od fellow."

Baird Albury right royally regaled the Boys of the Bahamas Contingent at "The Ridge" yesterdayafti rnoon, and the patriotic and other airs played by the Constabulary Band in attendance added to the enjoyment of the good Doctor's patriotic send off. The unstinted feeling of bonhomie which was RlOSl marked, will, we are sure, make the occasion one long to be remembered in the hearts of "Our Boys" and the Doctor's kindness never to be forgotten by them.

"3- PUBLISHED AT J P.M.
THE BAHAMAS CONTINQENT.
The Recruiting Committee
have decided to charter the
Schooner "Veruna" to trans-
port the Contingent to Jamai-
ca.
The Contingent will sail
for Jamaica on Thursday the
(jth inst. in the afternoon.
There will be a Church
parade of the Contingent on
Sunday morning at 11 o'clock
to the Cathedral.
:o
Dr. R. W. Albury will ac-
company the Contingent to
Jamaica as Denial and medi-
cal aid.
:o:
Between 5 and G o'clock
yesterday evening the Con-
tingent marched out to "The
Ridge" on the Village Road
whae they were received by
Dr. J. B. A1 bury, the owner,
assisted by Mr. C. W. Mather.
After the men had rested
awhile a generous and sump- J
tuous repast was served them :
on the veranda which they'
heartily enjoyed.
The Police Band was in
attendance on tha lawn and
'"liv.ncd the gastronomic j
( sen ises. '
The Commandant Craw-
ford, Mr. Frank Holmes, Drs.
\V. A. Pitt and J. J. Culmer
were present.
Al tlie end of the repast Mr.
Holmes addressed the com-
pany, the men particularly in
an encouraging and cheerful
speech. Dr. Albury replied
and assured the men that
wherever they might be, or
whenever there is anything
that he could do for them
they must not hesitate to call
upon him.
Three cheers were given for
the King the band playing the
National Anthem, three
cheers for the Bahamas Con-
tingent with appropriate
music and three cheers for
Dr. Albury the band playing
"I 111 he's a jolly g< od fellow."
After making their adieus
the men marched back behind
the band to the Central Po-
lice Station where they were
dismissed.
No. 1 William F. Albury
will be placed in temporary
command of the Contingent
en route to Jamaica, No. 7
Origen Hernias Mason will
be second and No. 10 Sydney
Cuthbert Farrington will be
third.
I Communicated.}
Dr. J. Baird Albury right
royally regaled the Boys of
the Bahamas Contingent at
"The Ridge" yesterdayafti r-
noon, and the patriotic and
other airs played by the Con-
stabulary Band in attendance
added to the enjoyment of the
good Doctor's patriotic send
off. The unstinted feeling of
bonhomie which was RlOSl
marked, will, we are sure,
make the occasion one long
to be remembered in the
hearts of "Our Boys" and the
Doctor's kindness never to be
forgotten by them. "His
heart is in the right place
don't you know."

Jamaica owes a big debt of
gratitude to the ladies who
evolved the Flag Day scheme,
and carried it through to such a
successful conclusion. They
arc Mrs. William Wilson, Mrs.
Michael dc Cordova, and Mrs.
Sydney Couper, and from their
headquarters in the "Wilson
Building" in King Street, they
directed with consummate skill
the shaping of the entire plans
for Flag Day. The flags in tens
of thousands were obtained, and
a careful campaign of the is
land mapped out. Yesterday
their labours were rewarded
on a scale in keeping with the
great work they had so ably
carried through. Too much
pr ii-'' and credit cannot be gi\
en them. By the carrying out
of their idea they have swelled
the War Contingent Fund, the
fund to send our sons to fight
for thf motherland in this hour
of crisis, to a considerable ex
tent. They have done n splen
did patriotic work and all Ja
inaica thanks them for it.
