Botanical Garden Needed.
What is needed, of course, is a
botanical garden, but whether this
can be secured is. perhaps, i'. ques
tion, but if a united effort is made
to get it. there is n. teHin ; what
may be done.
Certainly some such thing is
badly needed, which would serve a
double purpose, by enhancing the
cranny of the country. Equipped
with a few blue prints, a breast
drill, a file and grindstones, they

'marvellous' car. Maybe they

dustry. The buyers either become
anti ad ertisf incuts for the auto
mobile in general or their appetites
are whetted just enough to make
them want a real motor car. It is
difficult to determine which out-

time saving these plants from des
tructioii. It is not supposed, of
i'oiir-e, that all of the various
flowers of the Islands could be
grown in a botanical garden, but
as it is mostly the flowers that
grow in the low altitudes that are
disappearing, a gteat many of
them could be saved.
