France lias already shown the way and has risen out of her ruin ed cities with a revival of re ligion that is wonderful. Russia has been welded into a whole, and religion plays a great part. England still remains to be taken OUl of the stupor of self satisfac tion and complacency into which her flourishing 1 ondi tion has steeped her.

If the-Mo much depends on agriculture, Uow necessary is it for the Bahamas Planters to possess a proper know ledge of its principals whe e planters are acquainted with the art it is found that the crops are large the people are richer and there is more gene ral prosperity than there is in those countries where the print iplrijjif proper cultiva tion are not usually known. In the Bahamas we do not only lack tin' proper methods of modern agriculture, but apparently are averse to ag ricultural improvements for the past decade or more several interesting experi meats were conducted in the Island to encourage small Ssttelers to adopt better ag ricultural methods and se cure greater results from such crops that are totally grown. AItli nigh s mn' nini ked im provements a re not iced the half handed u i\ m which things are done does not re fleet agricultural sir cess To remain as we are "inac tive" that which is secuii d will be lost. Ten or more years of labour lost to the Baha m is agricultural develop merit. should the h udn< SS of the rocks, and the thinness of the s tils be sufficient to qnill agricultural efforts? Should we be mastered by difficulties nought would we accomplish 1 luring an un rist, an Knglish humorist said "g i b II k to the bind." AS I thinkof it, the echoing riii',' se ininglv s iys go back to the land and reduce the grocers hill, go hack to the land and h s-.cn the ifs, nnds, and buis, go back to the land to cultivate it for this is war time. Partners this is the time for von. The time when you hive an oppoi lunity to demand good pr'n es for your produce. Tosecure this end you need to cultivate better, cultivate more and to su.k to your cultivation. rTmere, I his is the I ime of cooperation, wliv not Cor operate? Leon what tliebig farmers are doing ill oilier parts through cooperation. Think of the Tomato trade when you shall have cooper atcd. The large profits which will come to you, you will then need not worry about Crates neither vvill buyers deceive you. Onions —Some body should boom this industry — With unity of farmers the Bahamas should be next to Bermuda for on ion production. Cassava staoh is almost imperishable when thoroughly dried; easily grown is cassava on these Islands, what large sums would be annually sav ed on the importation canned tomato* s, ont< >nsand cassava starch is there room for Co operation ? And what about the importation of Corn in it-four Stagl s ? Surely then' must be some straining at the gnat and swallowing the camel. Farmers think of what you can do when your united untiring efforts are made to play on modern methods of practical Agri culture—now is the lime for action. See to it and stait methodically. WILLIAMS.

No. 22*
A Grand Fleet Chaplain's
Note Book.
The Socialist.
The great wonder was that
he should ever have come into
tlm Navy at all; but 1 think
that th I'rime Cause must have
told him that she wouldn't bt
seen walking out with him tin
less he got into uniform ; and
that he might choose hetween
becoming a lighting Man mid
getting another girl. Probably,
also, Ins cieed teaching him
that the Army consists of h liiu
ta I and Licentious Soldiary
officered by Toffs, he decided
that a man of his democratic
principals would have a better
time in the Navy.
Or it may be that with a fin*
self Sacrifice he had judged it
his duty to come and preach
the gospel of Syndicalism to an
Ignorant and deluded class of
society; honing to find in the
simple sailors a fruitful field for
his labours. Whatever his mo
tivj, Thomas I'aine lliggin
bothan joined us early in the
war in the capacity of a stoker
His history during the ensuing
eighteen months or so is of such
interact that I propose to tell
it now.
On the first occasion of his
entering the xtokehold he seized
the opportunity of beginning
the good work ; a grinning
crowd of "fellow toilers," to
use his own term, listened with
feelings as mixed as his own
Mm'taphors while he explained
ton hem that they had allowed
their birthright to be invnnlat
ed under Ilia nvioWing heal of
gilded tyrant! "You are," he
sod, i et of merceuaiy slaves
btnding beneath the iron wheel
of a selfish despotism" "And)
if you don't bend to that there
iron shovel, my lad," said the
Chief Stoker at this point,
"you'll get another Joue just
like this !" Whereat our Socia-
list rubbed the seat of his trou-
sers with many sore reflections;
among which was the astonish-
ed considetation that the Chief
Stoker, himself one of the horn v
handed sons of toil, could be
found willing to uphold the
despotic system which forced
manual labour upon a man
well qualified to be an intellec
tunl guide amongst his fellows.
Still, he consoled himself
with the thought that his re
marks might b.ar fruit He al
lowed them to mature for a
week before attempting anv
further sewing of the seed Thin
time the Chief Stoker was
not in the immediate neigh
bom hood, or. as V'homas Paine
Higginbotham expressed ft,not
a spyin' and eavesdroppin in
that contemptible manner"
He had. therefore, a freer hand,
and field forth for a good ten
minutes upon the Uightsof Man
and the tyrannous hahps of the
upper classes. When ha had
thoroughly warmed to his sub
ject he fixed his eye with that
magnetic glance that had so
often held his audience in the
United Sons of Freedom club
room, fixed it on another Btokr
who appeared one of the m >st
interested listeners. "You, my
brother." said he, "are toiling
ami moilms here below, while
they gilded popfnjaytnf officers
are all wallowing in idleness !
O. my Brother, why do you
suffer such things to be ?"
"Was it me you was add res
sin* of yerself to as your Broth"
er?" asked the other stoker.
"It was!" said Higginboth-
am.
"Then, take that, you mis-
begotten son of Ham," said the
other, planting a brawny first
upon the magnetic eye "and
don't ye ever insult me agin by
calling me a brother to such a
little lopeard gas bag,-is you be!
Brother, indeed I I've got three
broth*it, two in thf Navy and
one in the Army, and any one
of them would scorn to soil his
hands by usin' you to mop up
muck with!"
All this time we had been in
harbour. When we went to sea
Hipgiubotham's progress ad-
vanced another Stage, He was
violently seasick. "Well, sup
poain* you are?" asked one of
his cailoui messmates ; "'you're
no worse off than the Captain !
He gits sick every time we put*
to sea ; yet there he is up on
the bridge wastin' good vittles
as fast as he puts'em down, but
stickin' to his job, same as
you've got to !"
It was certainly n revelation to
hear thatone of the Gilded Ty-
rants should suffer the same dis
comforts as an ordinary stoker
aud from that moment lliggin
botham began to fell moer kind
ly disposed towards the race if
Oppressors.Hut ha professed him
self too ill to carry on with his
work, and was taken to tin
Sick Bay and nursed with j.s
much care and attention as if
he had been a Gilded Tyrant
himself The Fleet Surgeon rid
dressed him as "My boy," and
spun him a long yarn about ids
own suffering! when he first
came to sea, assuring him thai
he would get over the tendency
in time ; talking, all the time,
as Man to Man
Cheered by this treatment
Higr.inbolham actually made
an effort next day to struggle
back to work, although he still
felt very unwell, lie found that
there had been some slight de
feel in the engine room which
had given a good deal of trouble
and the grimy man in duty
overalls againat vvhuiu lie stum
bled curst d him roundly for a
clumsy lout, being a little short
tempered after having been
twenty four consecutive hours
at work Irving to put things
light ; tliis lired, grease stained
toiler was none other than the
Engineer Leiutenant Com nun
der, as Higginbotham discover
ed to his further surprise.
Weeks and months passed.
I will not attempt to follow
ever) separate step of Higgin
botham's education, but vvill
skip till we come to the final
siage. We thought v\ e were
going into action ope day I lig
ginbnthnm found himself ona
of a thousand men all inspired
with precisely the same wish
all liable to liie same dangers,
I ml all working in their vai ious
jobs as laboriously as himself.
"And what d've '.hink o' Sos
her! ism now ?" r.sked his friend
who had once for 0 season
closed his magnetic optic.
Higginbotham drew himself
up like a man, and he spat into
he open furnace befoie closing
the door
"Socialism,*" be began
But on second thoughts I will
not risk corroding my indium
pointed nib with what he said
about Socialism.

Beatty is the Commander of your correspondent wishes
the fust British Battle Spu;.d
ion, whose ships won a vie
tory over the Germans in the
North Sea. In the course of
a letter from him which was
read at tlieannual meeting of
the S. P. C. K., he wrote:
"Surely Almighty God does
not intend this war to be just
a hideous fracas or a blood
drunken orgy. There must
be a purpose in it. Improve
ment must come oul of it.
In what direction ? France
lias already shown the way
and has risen out of her ruin
ed cities with a revival of re
ligion that is wonderful.
Russia has been welded
into a whole, and religion
plays a great part. England
still remains to be taken OUl
of the stupor of self satisfac
tion and complacency into
which her flourishing 1 ondi
tion has steeped her. Until
she can be Stirred out of this
condition, until a religious
n vival takes place, just so
long will the war continue.
"When she can look on he
futine with humblej < y s and
8 piayer on her lips, then we
can begin to count the da\ s
toward the end. Voui society
is helping to this end. and so
is helping lo hi ing the war

If the-Mo much depends on
agriculture, Uow necessary is
it for the Bahamas Planters
to possess a proper know
ledge of its principals whe e
planters are acquainted with
the art it is found that the
crops are large the people are
richer and there is more gene
ral prosperity than there is
in those countries where the
print iplrijjif proper cultiva
tion are not usually known.
In the Bahamas we do not
only lack tin' proper methods
of modern agriculture, but
apparently are averse to ag
ricultural improvements for
the past decade or more
several interesting experi
meats were conducted in the
Island to encourage small
Ssttelers to adopt better ag
ricultural methods and se
cure greater results from such
crops that are totally grown.
AItli nigh s mn' nini ked im
provements a re not iced the
half handed u i\ m which
things are done does not re
fleet agricultural sir cess
To remain as we are "inac
tive" that which is secuii d
will be lost. Ten or more years
of labour lost to the Baha
m is agricultural develop
merit. should the h udn< SS
of the rocks, and the thinness
of the s tils be sufficient to
qnill agricultural efforts?
Should we be mastered by
difficulties nought would we
accomplish 1 luring an un
rist, an Knglish humorist
said "g i b ii k to the bind."
AS I think- of it, the echoing
riii',' se ininglv s iys go back
to the land and reduce the
grocers hill, go hack to the
land and h s-.cn the ifs, nnds,
and buis, go back to the land
to cultivate it for this is war
time. Partners this is the
time for von. The time when
you hive an oppoi lunity to
demand good pr'n es for
your produce. Tosecure this
end you need to cultivate
better, cultivate more and to
su.k to your cultivation.
rT- mere, I his is the I ime of
cooperation, wliv not Cor
operate? Leon what tliebig
farmers are doing ill oilier
parts through cooperation.
Think of the Tomato trade
when you shall have cooper
atcd. The large profits which
will come to you, you will
then need not worry about
Crates neither vvill buyers
deceive you. Onions Some
body should boom this
industry With unity of
farmers the Bahamas should
be next to Bermuda for on
ion production. Cassava
staoh is almost imperishable
when thoroughly dried;
easily grown is cassava on
these Islands, what large
sums would be annually sav
ed on the importation canned
tomato* s, ont< >nsand cassava
starch is there room for Co
operation ? And what about
the importation of Corn in
it-- four Stagl s ? Surely then'
must be some straining at
the gnat and swallowing the
camel. Farmers think of
what you can do when your
united untiring efforts are
made to play on modern
methods of practical Agri
culturenow is the lime for
action. See to it and stait
methodically.
