WIDE OPENING CITY,
Andros, Has , U S. A*
June 14th, 1954.
Made in America Vanderbilt,
I dure say yon wonder when, in this
interminable letter, I am coming to the
special point you wrote to me about ;
viz : this City of Wide Opening. Well
that’s the subject of this chapter, but
you must please remember that this
Wide Opening City is part of a great
[scheme of advancement. Such a city
would have been impossible as a unit.
It only became possible as this State ad advanced
vanced advanced in its wonderful new life.
In other words, Wide Openiug City is
a product of its own environment. You
say perhaps that the great stream of
visitors from the north made the city
possible. Nay created it. But I say
rather this city has been the creator of
stream, aud the men who made the in industries
dustries industries aud re-organized the State life
made the city. Made it too, mark you,
out of mud, iu the mud, for the mud.
In the old days the whole of the great
bauk to the west of Andros, until .you
come to the Gulf Stream, was called The
Mud. All that seems in those days to
hive been known about it was that for
miles upon miles there was along that
coast a strange bed of white marl of
peculiar soapy character. It was used
in some few places for road making as it
dried hard, and one or two wise-acres I
find suggested it as a top dressing for
sandy soil, but generally all that it was
considered good for was as a bed for
the sponges, and there it lay undisturb undisturbed
ed undisturbed through the centuries.
I mentioned in a former letter that,
about the year 1903, a kind of semi-com semi-commercial
mercial semi-commercial scientific expedition came hither
from Baltimore City and found things.
Well amongst their finds was this white
marl. They say much about it at the
time ; but directly after the annexation,
you will, I think, remember that it is on
record, there was a wondrous white marl
boom, and on the strength of that boom
this Wide Opening was chosen as the
site of the new white marl city, which
sprang up with a rapidity hitherto un unknown.
known. unknown.

Out in the early western States wood wooden
en wooden cities had had rapid growth, but
compared to this splendid city of white
marl those were cities of cards. To day
Wide Opening City from one end to the
other looks like a city of marble palaces.
One of the first marl discoveries was,
that it was splendidly suitable as a build building
ing building material, aud a marl building syndi syndicate
cate syndicate was formed.
By a secret sub-chemical process the
salt in the marl was neutralized and at
the same time the animal base of the
marl toughened, so that after passing
through hot hydraulic presses it became
hard as stone. The ease with which marl
is worked here on the spot is astounding.
You can see it mixed, run through the
troughs, through the presses and issue
forth iu a wonderful variety of shapes
all ready for use. This city is witness.
In 1903 the site of Wide Opening City
was a dreary stretch of half-submerged
marl, bare at low tide. From an old
record I can give you the method fol followed
lowed followed iu first laying out the city. The
Marl Building Syudicate organized a City
Bureau, with ten different departments,
each presided over by au expert in that
; line. I need not mention the names of
I each department, but the Architectural,
[ the Electrical, the Agricultural and the
Medical were the four most important.
The first department really to get to
work was, of course, the Architectural,
and its first undertaking was the erection
of immense bundsenclosing au irregular
oblong containing about ten and a half
square miles. This will, to you, read
like an almost impossible task ; and yet
it is an indisputable fact, that, the whole
bund twenty five feet thick, and six feet
high above high water mark, was finish finished
ed finished in twenty-four days. Seventy large
centrifugal pumps were set to work
J dumping up the marl mud from within

THE MAIL SERVICE.
We understand that iu compliance
with the wish of His Excellency the Gov Governor,the
ernor,the Governor,the Members of the Legislature will
meet at Government House to-morrow for
the purpose of discussing together mat matters
ters matters connected with the mail service be between
tween between Nassau and New York. It would
appear from this that no understanding
of a permanent service has as yet been
arrived at with the Ward Line. If the
question at issue be only the rate of
freight, we should think that this diffi diffi.
. diffi. cnlty could easily be disposed of by
accepting the sixty cents rate pro proposed
posed proposed by Messrs. Ward as the maxi,
muni charge. This is a matter which
chiefly concerns the importers, and if
left to them, the steamship companies
concerned will soon find out whether it
would be advantageous to their interests
to advance rates. We believe that a large
proportion of the importers will take
such steps as they think justifiable under
the circumstances, and should this
Course be adopted, it is very pobable
that satisfactory arrangements would be
1 effected independently of the present
means of conveyance of merchandize, &e.,
from and to New York.

ISLAND ECHOES.
Someone has been finding fault with
my style of writing, as being too friv frivolous,
olous, frivolous, so in order to regain my lost repu reputation
tation reputation for “early piety ” I shall tell the
following story : In the days of the ca calips,
lips, calips, when Aladdin was numbered ainoug
the five wise virgins, there lived at Bag Bagdad
dad Bagdad a man named Hassail Ninepins. 1
think lie took his title from the number
of children he had. Anyhow this man
used to write for a journal called the
“Camel's Hide” (you see there was no
paper then) not for glory npr'money,
but simply to keep himself from com committing
mitting committing suicide, aud of course he used
to write in a style calculated to tickle
the hide-bound hearts of bis fellow suf sufferers.
ferers. sufferers. Now there also lived at that
time, a man who never laughed. It was
said that, he ha.l committed the unpar unpardonable
donable unpardonable sin by voting for the candidate
that his mother-in-law had forbidden
him to vote for, and had received there thereby
by thereby so many scratches iu the face that lit*
looked like the “ wild mau from Borneo.
He applied to several circus men for ad admission,
mission, admission, but was told that they hud as
many “mad mullahs ” as they had cages
for, so he returned home, resolved never
to griu again until after death. Soou
after that there appeared at his tent
door an agent of the Kickapoo Indian
Medicine Company, who had bet- ten
bottles of Sagwa to one of bilgy water,
that he could mivke him laugh until his
mouth split clean back to both ears
This man told no funny stories, but sim simply
ply simply sat down aud desciibed liow at a lit little
tle little village where the people said they
were too poor to eat, he had pulled 750
molars and sold eighty pounds worth of
Indian Oil before you could say “Jack
Robinson.” It was then that the man’s
ribald laughter so angered the gods, that
they consigned him to deepest limbo,
and put him on half rations of rice and
curry for ever aud ever. Amen.
The course of true love never did run
smooth ” or gt least it does not on a
rocky island like this, as the following
will explaiu :—Angelina Hosanna Jo
hiinun, had beeu having a good time
with swain number two, so when swain
number one returned he said to her —
“ Our dream of love is o’er." Now a wo woman
man woman never was iu wautof an excuse since
the time tho first oue blamed the snake
for biting Adam, so she said :—“Dream
of love—why the Kickapoo Dream-book
says to dream of love means : —“ Your
wishes will be realized.” Aud they were.
I have been reading lately about some
stuff called Radium. The theory of ra radio-activity,
dio-activity, radio-activity, according to Prof. Curie is,
that one kilogramme is sufficient to take
the hide off a rhinoceros in five minutes.
Perhaps some of this stuff was floating
around tho “ Bieakers ” just before the
fire. The story here is that it was set by
a fellow named Spontaneous Combiis*
tiou, but wliat tickles me is, they want
to kuow what sort of mutches he used.
How names aud titles do get mixed
up to be sure. I read in the cablegrams
that oue Major Mcßride, whose bride is
named Maud Gouue, is must anxious to

fight T-dtn Redmond, on account of an '
alleged insult to the hi ide in question.

Works Like Magic.
How to Stop Any Pain
Instantly.
If ever you have a pain—sharp or
dull —temporary or lingering, no mat matter
ter matter where it’s located—from the top of
your head down to the soles of your
feet, rub the spot with a little of
Xiinard’s Liniment, poured into Un Unhand,
hand, Unhand, and before you get through
rubbing the pain will have disappeaik‘il,
as if tlie place had been touched with
the magic hand of a fairy. This is no
fairy story either but the absolute
truth. Minard’s Liniment stops an
ache or pain, soreness or lameness,
the quickest of anything in the woi Id.
Read this letter. "\Ve have thousands
of others like it.
“ The reason I did not answer sooner
was because I desired lo give your
Liniment a thorough test. My case
was a stubborn one of tender feet and
I used mostly all of the bottle, but,
thanks to the same, I can now walk
with comfort and have no more trouble
with them. I have recommended it
to all my friends and have nothing but
praise for it. It is also an excellent
remedy for pains in limbs.” Here is
another person whose wonderful ex experience
perience experience with Minard’s Liniment i iworth
worth iworth your consideration. He says
“ I have been troubled very much tor
the past two years by my left leg get
ting numb from hip to ankle whenever
I would stand a few minutes upon it.
also frequently when walking. Your
bottle of Liniment helped it so much
that I have since used two more bottles
and considered myself entirely cured ;
in fact, I have forgotten for the last
week or tw-o, until reading your letter
asking what I used Liniment for, that
I ever was troubled with a numb leg.
I feel .so well pleased that ! shall be
glad to recommend it to my friends.
Thrown from her Buggy.
An old lady has this to say about it:
•‘Your letter was received inquiring
what the Liniment was used for and
what the result was. I used it for a
bad ankle. Forty years ago 1 was
thrown from a buggy and mv ankle
badly bruised and it has pained me all
these years. I could get no relief or
anytrflng that would take the black out
of it until I received your Liniment,
now it is as good as the other one and
I can wear tnv shoe. My uncle burnt
his hand and he used it and pronounced
it worth its weight in gold. We can
get it at the local drug store. I thank
you for your courtesy to me. I intend intended
ed intended to write you biit was very busy.
Will advertise your Liniment wherever
I go. ’ .
Get a bottle today and give it a trial.
We will guarantee you will not be
disappointed.

The automatic nonforfeiture feature of the
Company’s already liberal policy is proving
not ouly very popular, but of signal efficacy
to the policyholders, many of whom have
thereby had their policies saved to them, and
in more than one instance the policy would
have lapsed altogether but for this important
protection.
