Since the commencemi nt of the w ii, we have become \wiv familiar with the talk of -..in'' of our leading busi nesa m< a as to captui inn, German trade, and so forth. N '.v, we have not theslighiest objection to the Allies taking Germany's markets from her, and we fervently hope and expect I hat it will be .lone. Bui ii just occurred to us that it would be sound common sense for us to begin at home, and see to it tint we establish ourselves firmly in the American Sisal market before the dose of the war.

A CURIOUS FIND On Saturday lat while cutting down and clearing up a new poi lion if his field* in Wulf Road, one of Mr. Ji %  1 ear Pyfrom's men discovered a hum an ske'elon. The discovers |S surrounded in mystery: the skeleton being lodged in high bush quite a distance from the road, and with the exception of a part of the head, it was covered with about 8 inches of earth on the surface. Mr. Pyfrom made a thorough search of the skeleton and surroundings, hoping to find some clue that might throw some light on the mystery, but there was none to be found. Mr. Pyfrom speaks with reason when he judges that the body must have been put there very many ye iis ago. The skeleton is apparently that of a very large man. The following was handed to us for publication : War Refugees Committee, Clothing Depot, Victoria, S. W. August 19th, 1916. The Bahamian Red Cross Guild, N issau, Bahamas. Dear Madam : We beg to thank you very gratefully for the parcel of clothing you have so kindly sent us from the above Guild. The useful garments are most acceptable. It is much appreciated that people so far away from home still continue to think of us so g( nerously. Again thanking you Your faithfully WAR REFUGEES COMMITTEE. British Red Cross Society London.

We have indeed every rea son to be grateful to the Bfl hanias, ami it is pleasant to have your assurance that the help which the Colony gives both towards the prosecution of the war and towards the relief of the sick and wound etl will be maintained until the end.

They were ordinary soldiers, just the common Jean and liana, One from the valley of the Rhine and one from fair "Provence. They were simple-hearted fellows—every night each said Ins prayer: The one prayed vater Unser and the other Notre Pere. II. Then thev met bevond the trenches and they ran each other through. Just the ordinary kind OI work the soldier has to do. As they lay there close together, on the still October air Hans was gasping "Vater Unser" and Jean whispered "Notre Pere." III. So they went to find the Father. Me will understand, thought Hans, For He knows and loves the Rhineland. But Jean thought of fair Provence. And St. Michael came to meet them, and he smiled to see them stare When he told them Vater Unser was the same as Notre Pere. IV. So these two went together and stood before the throne, And prayed to Cod to make good speed and 'end St. Michael down. "Mais oui," said Jean, "Je croix qu'on n'aura plus de cette guerre Ouand on saura que Vater Unser est le meme que Notre Pere.'' Charles Alexander Richmond. MAlfs.

THE FLESH AND THE SPIRIT A Sermon for the fourteenth Sunday after Trinity. GalntionsV. 16, 17.— Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the fle*h. To walk is to make progress in a certain direction. So the Holy Apostle St. Paul urges the Christians of Gnlalia to gn for ward and make daily Hd\ance in the Christian life. He tells them, in this chapter, ol the two paths that of the Spirit and that of the flesh, 1. LIIK I iK-1 PATH -"Walk in the Spirit". Tin's means mat v.e are lo walkin lift ac cording to the leading of the I loly Spil it There are three blessings pi on used to those who take tins path : —1. I hey aie delivered bom the slaveiv of sin and fiom vile and degiad ing lusts. 2. They Bo longer dread the ju^t tenors rif (iod's laws which proclaim The tout thai sinneth il thall Ji,. J. They receive the glorious ;• It of |-.t. rial Life, winch in 1 eed begins now, in this life. ov the presence of the Holj Ghost in the he.111. i lieApos tie proceeds lo give a plain plan to guide those \< ho (lesne to take this path and lo "walk in the Spirit". He says it means love, jay, peace, loHgSuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, tent per* nice. These are 88 the mile stoins winch mark our progress along the path of The Spn it, and he adds against such there is no fate, nothing to hinder us, as the sinner is bin dered by threats and warnings, for those w ho talce this path are impelled onwards by holy love They are free men. II. Tin SECOND PATH— "ths lusi of the flesh'*. The Apostle does not leave us in doubt as to [his meaning, for he gives us %  plan of tins path also, and in dicates the horrible milestones which mark piogress thereon: "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, unclean ness, lasciviousness 1 which means lustful passion) Idolatry witchcraft, variance, emulations (i.e. jealousy) sedition, heresies. envying*, murders, drunkenness, revellings (i.e. unholy feastings and wicked dances), and such like"; truly an awful list of sins Which mark the path to destruction and loss of the soul. And the Apostle adds that he has more than once warned the GalationS "that they which rjo such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God." As we read this list we note that thsins mentioned are grouped into four classes: — 1. Those which Spring from fleshly lust; such as fornication, etc. 3. Unlawful dealings with evil Spirits; such as spiritualism, obeah and fortune telling, 3. Acts against Ch r ist i a n love; such as hatred and malice. 4. Intemperance; such as drunkenness and excess ; and if some people protest that they never fall into such gross sins, let them remember that Ihe seed of such sins nmv be cherished in their hearts. Thus murder! sprint; from anger, while other sins Spring fiom selfishness or covetousness. This is why pride is called H "deadly"sin, Il is like a "deadly poison," one drop ftf winch Is sufficient to destroy life, for pride is at the root of all our rebellion against God. III. St. Paul then tells US how we can walk in the Spirit. He lays They that arc Christs' have crucified the flesh with the an,, tiont and lusts.. Bv the words "They that are Christs'" he means those who are Mis by Baptism for the Apostle is speaking to baptized Christians. Our daily crucifixion of oursins springs from the sacramental act v. Inch made us •'members of Christ." It may he asked, what does this crucifixion of the flesh M with it, both in this life and in the next. 3. By setting our will, bj Divine to..ce, to meet temptation. 3. By watching (as well as piajing), as Our Lord commanded. f. By constant and earnest petitions, made as that in the Lord's Prayer, lead i/s not int> temptation but deliver 11s ft m evil. Such prayer obtains f< r US power to overcome the evil one. 5. By self denial, such as | holy men and women mention* id in the Bible, always exi icis ed. All the great Saints old d fasted and denied themselves of lawful things, so that tbev might learn to check uulaw fid desires. This is what St. Paul means when be says / Viet under my tody and bring it into tubjection. Such aie the two paths — the pi th of the spirit and ihe path of the flesh. Which of the;e paths are you following? mean? We crucify the fiesh. 1. When we keep in mind the punishment which sin brings New Bicycle Tyres For Sale UY put them on Joy yon free* of charge.

ON THE TOP OF THE RinOE.
This is the chief significance
of this scattered lighting which
has been going on now for
some davs Everywhere we
have been either at the top or
close to the top of the gently
.1 ipiug plateau, I believe thai
llieie is only one point now ai
which 1 he 1 -1 .-111 \ hold?, ground
higher than ouis, namely, be
tween High Wood and Delville
Wood. There it is at most a
mallei of t wo 01 three metres.
It IS, unfoi innately, impossible
to desci ibe the fight ing which
now goes on ot tier wist than in

at the one link of chain men
1101 ied, nowhere does the enemy
now hold higher ground than
we in all the wide arc from
where it dips to I hiepvnl nn
the left to where we connect
with our French Allies on the
right near Maure|.. .
The essential thing is that
we steadily gain ground, and
We do it, as I have sa id before,
by she. 1 Miperioiity of moral
and 6|(htillg spirit ill our men,
who now at last ate backed by
an ripialilv at least, of gun

This superiority of moral is most

matter of surrendering, of which
I have heard many st.u h s today
in connection with the eacel
lent Work' of the men of the
Sussex Regiment when thev
made their push on the left of
I'ozieres in cooperation with
the Australians and the Kentish
troops, of whose performances
I have already spoken.
OERMANS SURRENDERING.
The men of the Sussex who
took par! in the alfaii lell stories
of their prisoners which are
brimful id laughter and tii
UmpK. One man, it seems, made
an enemy surrender by pointing
at him an empty Verev's lights
pistol. Anoilirr who spoke (ier
man shouted th a group of tier
mans hiding in a shell hole to
come out or lliev would all be
shotand thev came. Most il
ItimilMting of all was the tale
of the Clerman who Csirue for
ward lo surrender balding out
befoie b 1 in a double handful ol
all Ins wo'ldlv goods, as a
bribe to his captors to%narellis
life. He was so terrified and
piteous, believing that he would
be killed, that it was almost
impossible to talk- to him until
he had been taken into a dug
nut and his confidence restored
with whisky frcigarettes Then
he called to his comrades and
induced some of tin in to come
ivei too.

when the pressure gets more

PERHAPS it was absurd to
Suppose, ih.it after Germany had
so infamously violated her trea-
ty with Belgium any German
officer could be expected to re

1 < ver, obliged the United Mates

# In our I'hursday's issue wi
reproduced an article from
the "Outlook" win. h gave
the causes of the advance in
the pi ice of Sisal. The foi
lowing is .in exl ract from one
of the leading commission
merchants in New Yo\ k, and
illusl rates how precai ious is
our hold on tlu: Amci nan
market.
" I'll.- 111,11 ket remains m a
\Vi-y peculiarcondii ion; there
is really only one Western
concern buying and they
have been theonly buyers for
muni lit passed,excepl an <><
cassionally hundred bales to

Hardly any of the Eastern
buyers sin w any interest in
Bahama at thi pn ;ent high
pi ice anil should the large
Western buyer discontinue pur
chasing Bahama at any tune,
i fear there may be a htavy
hie ik in price."
Since the commencemi nt
of the w ii, we have become
\wiv familiar with the talk
of -..in'' of our leading busi
nesa m< a as to captui inn,
German trade, and so forth.
N '.v, we have not theslighi-
est objection to the Allies
taking Germany's markets
from her, and we fervently
hope and expect I hat it will
be .lone. Bui ii just occurred
to us that it would be sound
common sense for us to begin
at home, and see to it tint
we establish ourselves firmly
in the American Sisal market
before the dose of the war.
German East Africa u < I
to export 130,0 " b lies of Si-
s il llmnp annually. Owing
to the war, this source of
supply has failed, and this is
onb ,if the main factors in the
1 iseof pi ice. I" the meantime
uh.it are we d ring towards
1 onvincing American manu-
I icturers that we have just
the article t hey want ? How
gh ill we si.in i when the bast

no doubt it will be in the
course of a few months ?
Wh it our merchants are do
ing is calc dated to destroy
all hope "f our holding our
own in such a contingency.

-nt pi ices, nobody can make
more than the barest of pro

that when the lean vears

inflation of price. What we

for the first time since it was

it is some ice plant 1 It has
been supplying mor" ice than
could be consumed all the

in which the plant has been
circled and housed. Mr.

this to Mi. Sand. (). Lot more

A CURIOUS FIND
On Saturday lat while
cutting down and clearing
up a new poi lion if his field*
in Wulf Road, one of Mr.
Ji 1 ear Pyfrom's men discov-
ered a hum an ske'elon. The
discovers |S surrounded in
mystery: the skeleton being
lodged in high bush quite a
distance from the road, and
with the exception of a part
of the head, it was covered
with about 8 inches of earth
on the surface. Mr. Pyfrom
made a thorough search of
the skeleton and surround-
ings, hoping to find some
clue that might throw some
light on the mystery, but
there was none to be found.
Mr. Pyfrom speaks with rea-
son when he judges that the
body must have been put
there very many ye iis ago.
The skeleton is apparently
that of a very large man.
The following was handed

THE LORDS PRAYER I
1.
They were ordinary soldiers, just the common Jean and
liana,
One from the valley of the Rhine and one from fair "Pro-
vence.
They were simple-hearted fellowsevery night each said
Ins prayer:
The one prayed vater Unser and the other Notre Pere.
II.
Then thev met bevond the trenches and they ran each
other through.
Just the ordinary kind OI work the soldier has to do.
As they lay there close together, on the still October air
Hans was gasping "Vater Unser" and Jean whispered
"Notre Pere."
III.
So they went to find the Father. Me will understand,
thought Hans,
For He knows and loves the Rhineland. But Jean thought
of fair Provence.
And St. Michael came to meet them, and he smiled to see
them stare
When he told them Vater Unser was the same as Notre
Pere.
IV.
So these two went together and stood before the throne,
And prayed to Cod to make good speed and 'end St. Mi-
chael down.
"Mais oui," said Jean, "Je croix qu'on n'aura plus de cette
guerre
Ouand on saura que Vater Unser est le meme que Notre
Pere.''

The Flesh and the
Spirit
A Sermon for the fourteenth
Sunday after Trinity.
GalntionsV. 16, 17. Walk
in the Spirit, and ye shall
not fulfil the lust of the
fle*h.
To walk is to make progress
in a certain direction. So the
Holy Apostle St. Paul urges the
Christians of Gnlalia to gn for
ward and make daily Hd\ance
in the Christian life. He tells
them, in this chapter, ol the
two paths that of the Spirit
and that of the flesh,
1. Liik I iK-1 Path-"Walk
in the Spirit". Tin's means
mat v.e are lo walk- in lift ac
cording to the leading of the
I loly Spil it There are three
blessings pi on used to those who
take tins path : 1. I hey aie
delivered bom the slaveiv of
sin and fiom vile and degiad
ing lusts.
2. They Bo longer dread the
ju^t tenors rif (iod's laws which
proclaim The tout thai sinneth

J. They receive the glorious

1 eed begins now, in this life.
ov the presence of the Holj
Ghost in the he.111. i lieApos
tie proceeds lo give a plain
plan to guide those \< ho (lesne
to take this path and lo "walk
in the Spirit". He says it
means love, jay, peace, loHgSuffer-
ing, gentleness, goodness, faith,
meekness, tent per* nice. These are
88 the mile stoins winch mark
our progress along the path of
The Spn it, and he adds against
such there is no fate, nothing to
hinder us, as the sinner is bin
dered by threats and warnings,
for those w ho talce this path are
impelled onwards by holy love
They are free men.
II. Tin Second Path"ths
lusi of the flesh'*. The Apostle
does not leave us in doubt as to
[his meaning, for he gives us
plan of tins path also, and in
dicates the horrible milestones
which mark piogress thereon:
"Now the works of the flesh
are manifest, which are these:
adultery, fornication, unclean
ness, lasciviousness 1 which
means lustful passion) Idolatry
witchcraft, variance, emulations
(i.e. jealousy) sedition, heresies.
envying*, murders, drunkenness,
revellings (i.e. unholy feastings
and wicked dances), and such
like"; truly an awful list of
sins Which mark the path to
destruction and loss of the soul.
And the Apostle adds that he
has more than once warned the
GalationS "that they which rjo
such things shall not inherit the
Kingdom of God."
As we read this list we note
that th- sins mentioned are
grouped into four classes:
1. Those which Spring from
fleshly lust; such as fornication,
etc.
3. Unlawful dealings with
evil Spirits; such as spiritualism,
obeah and fortune telling,
3. Acts against Ch r ist i a n
love; such as hatred and malice.
4. Intemperance; such as
drunkenness and excess ; and if
some people protest that they
never fall into such gross sins,
let them remember that Ihe seed
of such sins nmv be cherished in
their hearts. Thus murder!
sprint; from anger, while other
sins Spring fiom selfishness or
covetousness. This is why pride
is called H "deadly"sin, Il is like
a "deadly poison," one drop ftf
winch Is sufficient to destroy life,
for pride is at the root of all our
rebellion against God.
III. St. Paul then tells US how
we can walk in the Spirit. He
lays They that arc Christs' have
crucified the flesh with the an,,
tiont and lusts.. Bv the words
"They that are Christs'" he
means those who are Mis by
Baptism for the Apostle is
speaking to baptized Christians.
Our daily crucifixion of oursins
springs from the sacramental act
v. Inch made us 'members of
Christ."
It may he asked, what does
this crucifixion of the flesh
M
with it, both in this life and in
the next.
3. By setting our will, bj Di-
vine to..ce, to meet temptation.
3. By watching (as well as
piajing), as Our Lord com-
manded.
f. By constant and earnest
petitions, made as that in the
Lord's Prayer, lead i/s not int>
temptation but deliver 11s ft m
evil. Such prayer obtains f< r
US power to overcome the evil
one.
5. By self denial, such as |
holy men and women mention*
id in the Bible, always exi icis
ed. All the great Saints old d
fasted and denied themselves
of lawful things, so that tbev
might learn to check uulaw fid
desires. This is what St. Paul
means when be says / Viet under
my tody and bring it into tub-
jection.
Such aie the two paths the
pi th of the spirit and ihe path
of the flesh. Which of the;e
paths are you following?
mean? We crucify the fiesh.
1. When we keep in mind the
punishment which sin brings
