Edited by Cousin Jack:.


1 have persuaded the Editor to give
me the following letter which won the
second prize it one of the JAMAICA
TIMEs Christmas Competitions, and
which has not beiWd pAnbhshed before.
Dear John,-On Monday the 25th
of November I went for a day's
walk through a part of Jammea.
It was a very intereatinj one. I
started from Franklield in Claren-
don and went to Brown's Town in
St. Ann. On my way going I sa
the Rio -inho til Tr rea~t r Trout
Hall. There I saw the large and
beautiful level with its large cane-
fields, and banana walks both sides
of .the road. There also I saw a
coffee factory. From there I fol-
lowed the main road through Tare-
mont and came out to Cave Valley.
Whilst going through Taremont I
saw nice churches and houses and
cultivation. At a place called Bog
Hole a few miles off Cave Valley I
saw a small but beautiful lake, sur-
rounded by beautiful hills. At Cave
Valley I saw the Cave River and a
beautiful bridge over it. There also
I saw a large a.d well, kept cane-
field both sides of the 'road and a
sugar and rao estate on which I saw
a large number of laborers work.
ing. I also saw the maketr-luse,
the Court House and the store etc.
From there as I proo ed oa. n .both
sides of the road I saw pretty ooa
mons, pastures, and hlt wttih cattle
grag on then itead' of the
canefilds, etc., in Clarendon. When
1 reached Aboukir I saw the hao-
pital and Ite paitidti in thir long
white gowns. foie'- t be I went
straight o, an al adlontthe. road I
saw nothing but beautiful cattle-
pens and district till I reached
Brown's Town. The scenery along
the road was very pretty, and the
numerous cattle pen,4 and pastures
made me to believe that St. Ann's
was really a cattle rearing parish.
Brown*si-Twn-irts pretty and thrivr-
ing town. It has plenty of houses
and store, also a Court Bouse, a
Poet Office, ad some lnae hrchu es
sad schoql-roAoms and a market, I
also saw telegraphic wires there. In
fact my walk was very delightful.

out a feeling of mingled admira-

because the work in'tolved,
so extensive and so laborious,
is done with such ability and at-

.these reports reach us well nigh-
twelve months after the close
of the period whose dealings they
record. The Reports were pub.
listed last week. They bring the.
record of the matters they deal
with down to March 31st, 1901.
This is' February 8th,. 1902. Of
course it is very apparent that
statistics such as these take a
long time to digest and tabu'ate,
bat after all eleven months is
too long. And, again, granting

are thus really for only two.
thirds of the year. Ex-
cise Duty estimated to give
105,000, subsequently correct-
ed to 90,000 came out lWel
with the second estimate. When
we turn to Exports we find that
there was a remarkable drop in
several particulars. The total value
of all exports was 1,797,076
against 1,868,079 in 1899 1900;
oforazges we exported about 181
millions lew than in 1899-1900; of
.Cooomnut nearly 44 millions less.
In Bananas, 8,248,485 bunches,
we counted to increase. The
655 packages of Mangoes that we
sent abroad did not equal the
831 of 1898 99 nor did the 7,511
dozen Pine-apples quite reach
the. record for 1897-98 namely
7697, though it exceeded, the
year immediately preceding, 1900-
01. It was a record year for
Honey, of which we seat away
some 10,738 worth; and for Log.
wood extract which rose from a
value of 15,880 to 31,598.
We had not sugar to meet the
demand; sending abroaJ 295,006
owt. Logwood was a bigger item
of export than in the .preceding

meting, largely attended, well vo-

ess and force, ,and backed by a
manimous vote of the large audi-
ese that filled and over filled

was the Custos, Dr. Pringle, and

As Dr. Pringle remarked, this is

sion is asked for to make a


thorough enquiry iito the meth-
ods employed for repairing St.
Mary's roads. In the next place
the meeting asked that the Super-
intendent's power be in part
transferred to reliable men, chosen
from the various district, as it is
clear that there is uot at present
sufficient supervision. Finally
the meeting coamaitted itself to
the severe measure- of urging
that the Director of Public Works
resign on the score of "advanced
age, and that an officer more
fit to cops with the' arduous
duties of the office be appoint
ed ii his stead." This last, as
we have said, is severe, but it
is certainly not unprovoked.


The Board that

another slice off the matter on
Monday. Dr. Love first explain
ed that D)r. Clare was slightly
mistaken in imagining there was

attend a-meeting of the Board.
The D. M. 0. would have been
politely treated ; that certainly was
meant and. that only. The proper
business of the day they begun. In
(his scene the prominent figure is
Mr. Davidson, Superintendent
of the Union Poor House, and
the problem was this: Granted
that there had been neglect

of sick applianceoku war was
the Superintendent to blsqe. The
managers asked Mr. Davidson had

had he called the Doctor's attention
thereto. The answer _was, jes.
The Superintendent had also seen
the need of more beds and re-
ported it on several occasions,
dates of which he supplied. He
also gave the specific things he
suggested should be procured.
So far so good. But Mr. David
-son did not say when, where and
how he had called the attention
ef the medical officers to inmates,
as per his first answer. Where-
upon the Mayor, who, had enter-
ed meanwhile,criticised Mr. D, vid-
son's reply as "baild__ .

He held the dates

blamed the Superiatendent for

Board of Management when, for
instance, a certain inmate broke
his leg. He thereupon moved that
the first answer was uusatisfac

yet appear. Some of his say3i 'it
have certainly created anything
but pleasure within the small
circle of the Jaminica public.
Without entering into a general
defence ,of Mr. Mark'. 'articles,
there is one point at which we
!hiik most Journalists wilt give
him their sympathy. He stated
in one article that' Hil Excel-
lency was of opinion that the lim-
its of possible retrenchment had
been reached. His Excellency
who does not think, or at least
would not-for worlds say anything
of the sort, promptly used tho
press lihre to contradict Mr.
Marks. Now it turns out that
Mr. Marks had an interview with
the Governor from which he took
away the firm impression that
the- Governor*e mint athot lte

They discussed ,finance, and

what he said in a private i:ntor-

S, much of praise. It must, how-

which would be most deplorable.

Article 10 of the Code permits a
teacher to correspond with the De-

ascertain the amount of grant paid to
the school for the school year. As it
has frequently happen-d that differ

profit much as the teacher would
simply be told tlat such and such an

the correspondence. It is a pity that
the teweher is thus handicapped, as he
ought .to be in a position to make
himself certain about the amount of
pay he is to receive. As this calcula

Away from tlhe writer's introductory
S remarks, which are rather tflimn, he
gives as reason:
1. It is an unnecessary expense.
Every man who earns his money
spends it in the way or ways he thinks
-best, or which buits him b.est; and
it is not in another's place to lay out
plans to that effect, or fitd any fault,
so long as he does so legitimately. If

(in support of this point) which lie

The Governor desires to ware Ia.

Cruelty to Animals.
Our correspondent at Georges
Plain, Westmoreland write :--On
Friday the yam cultivators of Han
over take their provision to the mar-
ket at Say-la-Mar, in carte, usually
drawn by three muleb. On the re-
turn home, the drivers indulge in the
most stupid and reckless diving pos-
sible. It is their practice to secure
as many passengers as they "an,
among the pedestrians from the die-
tricts aroud-Lucea, and it is not ua-
common to see a cart occupied by
S twelve or thirteen persons, excluding
Sthe driver, being driven as fast as the
poor mules can go. The driver 'vie
with one another as to speed.
Last Siturday poor suile was
badly hurt on the foot, one driver
without giving me for the other to
get out the wy, pushed ahead,. tle
the wheel gave the mule a very ugly
wound. In spite of that the wouMded
animal was urged o to trot.
It is to be lamented tat so little
kindness is shown to animals n this
part of,the island. If one of these
cruel men was taken before ouar
r. M. aud fined heavily, or confined,
it would be a lasting lesson t- him,.
and a warning to others.

Major's horse! Again arose the ques-
