The ng cut thought that 85IDS would be enough to deduct, and it was eventually decided to dry the Sisal with a view to ascertaining bow much wat er there really was in it. It was opened and spread out foi t .vo hours in the after noon, and on being weig it was found that i h. i pt it is thoroughly dried.

A year or more before the out break of the wai a Greek order for a large battleship was placed with a German ship yard, the contract for armor plate and guns being awaided to the Bethlehem Steel Co. When hostilities began, the hull of the vessel was completed and it was seized by the Ger man government. Greece, na turally, did not regard the ac tion as the most friendlyCOUrM possible, and, receiving an ofler from Britain sold the guns and other armament, the most va luable part of the ship and the part that involved more time to replace to England. The second incident was of a similar nature. In 1914 Beth lehem Steel was completing 110,000,000 order for coast de fences and other armament for Chile. The guns and other ar mament were practically ready for delivery, but industrial de pression which the war caused in South America was so acute that Chile found herself unable to make payment. At the criti cal moment Germany managed to cause ill feeling in Chile for a trilling advmtage. Britain again stepped in and her offer to take the armament off Chile's hands was promptly accepted. —The Wall Strtet Journal MEN of the Bahamas The Recruiting Office at the Barracks is again open for Recruits for Drafts for the Bahamas Contingent.

    break of the wai a Greek order
    for a large battleship was
    placed with a German ship
    yard, the contract for armor
    plate and guns being awaided
    to the Bethlehem Steel Co.
    When hostilities began, the
    hull of the vessel was completed
    and it was seized by the Ger
    man government. Greece, na
    turally, did not regard the ac
    tion as the most friendlyCOUrM
    possible, and, receiving an ofler
    from Britain sold the guns and
    other armament, the most va
    luable part of the ship and the
    part that involved more time
    to replace to England.
    The second incident was of a
    similar nature. In 1914 Beth
    lehem Steel was completing *
    110,000,000 order for coast de
    fences and other armament for
    Chile. The guns and other ar
    mament were practically ready
    for delivery, but industrial de
    pression which the war caused
    in South America was so acute
    that Chile found herself unable
    to make payment. At the criti
    cal moment Germany managed
    to cause ill feeling in Chile for
    a trilling advmtage. Britain
    again stepped in and her offer
    to take the armament off Chile's
    hands was promptly accepted.

    Notwithstanding the fact
    that hurricane m mthsare ua
    us, ^is.il is still coining from
    the Out Ulands in large qu
    antities.
    Sad to 1. late, h iwever,
    there are still the same nun
    plaints to be ma^e,- bad
    cleaning, and water. In some
    cases it is all t .oevident that
    these faults are deliberate.
    Sisal isshipped wetanddirty
    with the hope that -
    buyer will be sillyenough to
    give full weight. If you doubt
    our statement take a walk
    round some of the wharfs and
    Sl'' the Sisal fended. I'he
    bales look dry, and "the out
    sale of the pi.itter" is beauti
    fully dean. See that same
    S|S;|I wi il;Ii landoneortwo
    hanks tajten oul of the mid
    die of the I, de, and in the
    ' "i njorty of in; lam es von
    will find water in abundai
    and sometimes black I as
    well. The pity of it i ):1 ,,f
    our most promising indus
    tries is b sing ruined by this
    criminal cnrelessni ss and dis
    honesty. An instance of what
    the presence of water in Sisal
    means was brought to our
    notice a few days ago." A lot
    of the fibre was put on the
    seale and weight I n lbs.
    On examination it proved to
    be wet, and the Rug
    gested that he should deduct
    10 ) lbs for water. The ng
    cut thought that 85IDS would
    be enough to deduct, and it
    was eventually decided to
    dry the Sisal with a view to
    ascertaining bow much wat
    er there really was in it. It
    was opened and spread out
    foi t .vo hours in the after
    noon, and on being weig
    it was found that i h out ONE HUNDRED AND
    /"//'}' ONE POUNDS. It is
    obvious that a Sisal Ex< ban
    _' or sonic other drastic re-
    form is needed. Ob that our
    buyers, in the interest of this
    industry, as well as tin irown
    and the inter*si of the |
    ducer as well; would n fuse
    to wi igh any Sisal >. i pt it
    is thoroughly dried. If a ft w
    i irgoes were can ied b
    to the islands as being unfit
    for the market, tin- great
    evil would soon be eradL ated

    is to be found in all parts of the civilised world, and its
    great utility is vouched for by millions of contented
