The light is bright, and beside it the electric light looks a sickly yellow. The risk of fire is minimised, as it is practically impossible, even with the most careless handling, to set the lamps afire. The only difficulty is that the mantles are unprotected, and adventurous beetles are apt to fly in when the lights are going and destroy them. This drawback will be overcome by the fixing of a "bug proof" globe, which the manufacturers, The Best Light Co., of Can ton, Ohio, supply for this purpose. We notice that other houses in the Eastern district have simila' installations, and feel sure that they must prove a great boon, especially to those districts which are outside the Lighting radius —:o: — The Police Band will give a concert tonight on the Library Green at 8.15 pm.

the Eastern men will put a stronger team against The Wanderers. — :o: — f Mangrove Cay, Andros 25th June 1916. Editor Tribune Dear Sir We are sending to the assistance of the Mother Country today Harold Bowe and William II Knowles who have volunteered to fight in the defence of liberty and right. Their choice fills us with pride, for it is evident that 'we are alive to our responsiblities. These recruits have just merged into manhood, and they both occupy positions which might have t mpted them to remain, but the call of duty i, to them, above the call of Si If. These make 14 units to the Arm) and 1 to the Navy which the District of Mangrove Cay has furnished, divided amongst the following Settlements; viz: Mangrove Cay, 8 Gold ing Cay, 1 Long Hay Cays, 4 Memo's pay, 1 Total 14 to the army and one from ManjMjfai >ve Cay who is serving with the Royal Navy, We have also contributed to the various War Funds£179and we are still willing to divide our little earning! with those more in need, who have felt the horrors of war more than ourselves, until the end. Our I isi u %  >i 1 lo our men both in our spec lies and '11 our b-t• ters, is to uphold the dignity of the British arms and to bring no disgrace to their uniform; but to fight as mqii do who have an object in Vie v. .111 I .11" sine ihat it is right to secu e il We have very i*h %  •"'ing md encouragi 'g lei tprs from 0U r men who have jojne 1 the force* in Egypt; iliev a re proud of their choice and are d ling well. rhe hearts of the peop'e of this distrc' hve been very reoott4iv • t > the c ill t > dul y and sacrifice, and we hopp nnd prav thai the thickly n piil 1 ted ftettlements in the' in'ildle nnd tn the nortli Of the Island, for it is only with united effort with one purpose in view, that the might of the enemy can be broken. Our local leading men are unselfis hand untiring in their efforts and zeal and they spare no opportunity in putting the case with a sincerity that carries conviction, and with a force that ai once dis spels all doubts and quibblings that might arise from cowardice or love of ease. We wish our boys God speed and pray that they will nobly acquit themselves in this great struggle, and that if they be spared to return they will bring glory and honour with them. II. B. HOWE.

Mrs. E. G. Dupticli, now re
siding in Montreal, Canada,
lias just lust another bro-
ther -Alfred Merritt who
was killed in action in France
recently. Alfred is the third
brother lost; the first being
Walter who was also killed
in action in France, and the
second, James,' who went
down with the H. M.S. Natal.
Two more brothers are now
alive and in the British army
in Fran' e.
The Merrilt home is in
Greenwich, London, F.ng.

A very fine lighting plant
has been insta lied in the Bap-
tist Church known as Charity
'I abernacle, Freetown. It was
purchased at the suggestion
"I the pastor, the Rev II. F.
I > inn, who had seen similar
lighting systems in use, and
knew from experience I heir
i good points.
\ It is a variation of the "wire *
system, and is extremely aim*
pie to liandl', tn say n >thing
ol its efficiency and genera]
excellence. Th** aparai us ron
sists of a sin ill pressure tank,
which is connected b\ a hoi
low wire to four I 1 nips, or
rat n't gas pen I ints. I hesi
are very neat in appenranre,
an 1 are fined with a double
i 1 i'il"sC'''ii 'miner, giving
a light of I' iM 1 hi-'-r lo -i\
hand ed candle powr. The
light is bright, and beside it
the electric light looks a sick-
ly yellow. The risk of fire is
minimised, as it is practically
impossible, even with the
most careless handling, to set
the lamps afire. The only dif-
ficulty is that the mantles are
unprotected, and adventurous
beetles are apt to fly in when
the lights are going and de-
stroy them. This drawback
will be overcome by the fix-
ing of a "bug proof" globe,
which the manufacturers,
The Best Light Co., of Can
ton, Ohio, supply for this pur-
pose. We notice that other
houses in the Eastern district
have simila' installations,
and feel sure that they must
prove a great boon, especial-
ly to those districts which are
outside the Lighting radius

Editor Tribune
Dear Sir
We are sending to
the assistance of the Mother
Country today Harold Bowe
and William II Knowles who
have volunteered to fight in
the defence of liberty and
right. Their choice fills us
with pride, for it is evident
that 'we are alive to our re-
sponsiblities. These recruits
have just merged into man-
hood, and they both occupy
positions which might have
t mpted them to remain, but
the call of duty i, to them,
above the call of Si If. These
make 14 units to the Arm)
and 1 to the Navy which the
District of Mangrove Cay has
furnished, divided amongst
the following Settlements;
viz:
Mangrove Cay, 8
Gold ing Cay, 1
Long Hay Cays, 4
Memo's pay, 1
Total 14 to
. the army and one from Man-
jMjfai >ve Cay who is serving
" with the Royal Navy, We
have also contributed to the
various War Funds179and
we are still willing to divide
our little earning! with those
more in need, who have felt
the horrors of war more than
ourselves, until the end. Our
I isi u >i 1 lo our men both in
our spec lies and '11 our b-t-
ters, is to uphold the dignity
of the British arms and to
bring no disgrace to their
uniform; but to fight as mqii
do who have an object in
Vie v. .111 I .11" sine ihat it is
right to secu e il We have
very i*h"'ing md encourag-
i 'g lei tprs from 0Ur men who
have jojne 1 the force* in
Egypt; iliev a re proud of their
choice and are d ling well.
rhe hearts of the peop'e of
this distrc' hve been very
reoott4iv t > the c ill t > dul y
and sacrifice, and we hopp
nnd prav thai the thickly
n piil 1 ted ftettlements in the'
in'ildle nnd tn the nortli Of
the Island, for it is only with
united effort with one pur-
pose in view, that the might
of the enemy can be broken.
Our local leading men are
unselfis hand untiring in their
efforts and zeal and they
spare no opportunity in put-
ting the case with a sincerity
that carries conviction, and
with a force that ai once dis
spels all doubts and quibbl-
ings that might arise from
cowardice or love of ease.
We wish our boys God
speed and pray that they will
nobly acquit themselves in
this great struggle, and that
if they be spared to return
they will bring glory and
honour with them.
