Colon, C. Z. For the American resident
of the Canal Zone life Is not all
beer and skittles. There is plenty of
beer, but I have not seen a skittle here.
Perhaps I would not have recognized
one If I had seen It.
Tho American in a foreign land is
not so tenacious of his homo customs
as is the Englishman, and in Panama
he finds himself not only in a tropic
clime but in the midst ot a civilization
much older than his own. Consequently
he yields in many particulars
to tho customs of that clime and that
civilization. The mid-day siesta of
two hours, when he disrobes and dozes
in a cool room, the dip in the ocean before
dinner and tho evening stroll in
Vue plaza all appeal to him as to tbe
nativo and have become a part of his
At the same time the influx of northerners
has had its effect on the Panamanians,
especially, perhaps, in the
matter of sports. BuUflghts no longer
arc to be seen'here and cock" lighting
has suffered a marked decline. In
place of them the native now enjoys
frequent wrestling matches and prizefights,
indulges in tennis to some extent
and has taken kindly to the national
American sport'of baseball.
It is the American woman on whom
the changed conditions of life bear
hardest, for housekeeping on the Isthmus
is attended by many annoyances.
A good many people have the idea that
a woman in tho tropics 'lies in a hani
mock all day and at meal, time picks
her food from tho branches of trees
that shade her resting place. As a
matter of fact she must do her household
shopping as at home, and tho domestic
problem is with aa
there, only more so, if poBsiblo." For
clothing and standard groceries she
usually goes to the store of the commissary
department, where she can
buy well and cheaply. But, for fruit
and many of the vegetables there is
the daiiyitrip to the market. In that
spacious building I am 'speaking now
of Colon .and Panama are scores of
booths and tables, attended hy'Jama;
cans, Chinese and native Pantrmanianif,
a'nd piled'high with taroi" breadfruit,
sourBaps, guavas, papayas, bananas,
plantains, alligator Dears, mangoes
.cocoanuts and'a dozen other
tropical products. The layout ls tempting,
but the purchasing is a task. Such
a thing as a fixed prloe la unknown and
one must bargain diligently or get the
worst of it An'dhe insolonco."of the'
negro women Is often commensurate
with their ignorance. The native meat
market is quite "impossible"' for white

meat, roughly hacked,' Is Boldjlmme'dffl

screening . enforced-by the American
sanitary department is rendered
by open doors.
The domestic servants jempjoyed by
Americans In the zone are almostall
Jamaican negresses. They are neat
and clean, but their stupidity usually
is monumental. Every detail of the
.household operation's must be driven
into thelrheads, and their minds seemingly
are on the island home they have
left, for their "memory islmost nil
and their eyes see little close at band.
Then, too, after a year or so of service
and saving they begin; to thlnk'of returning
to Jamaica and grow "weary."

and the breakfast dishes and kitchen
things not washed, and thoants aU
"Oh, marm, I couldn't do them, I'm
so exharsted this morning," was
That's a mild sample of what must
be contended with.
Speaking of ants, there is another of
the annoyances of housekeeping in the
tropics. The ants are everywhere, in
unbelievable numbers and most extraordinary
activity. Screen's do not keep
them out nor Insect exterminators discourage
them. They must simply be
endured. If they take a fancy to a
nicely growing garden of young vegetables,
they cut and carry off all the
leaves in a night It Is the so-called
leaf ant that does that All o.ver the
isthmus he Is to be seen, moving' In
processions along well beaten paths'
each individual carrying a leaf or
other bit of foliage. One day I saw a
long line of them morlBg through the
sparse turf, all carrying tiny red blossoms
cut from a smajl weed. It was
a very picturesque miniature parade.
No place and no ago has been freo
from the cockroach, and in Panama he
grows to an enormous size and spends
some of his time and energy eating
tho covers of bound books.
Rust and mould add to the woes of
the American housekeeper, and many
articles she must keep in "dry closets"
In which electric lamps are kept burn
There are not In Panama a great
many of the Cp&xb'u
families, whoso members possess edu
.catioft and refinement, and those that
are there are not especially fond of
Americans. Consequently there is net
much social i intercourse between tho
two races. The'soclal activities of the
Americans havo three general centers
the Tlvoli club, the Washington
club and tho Young Men's Christian
association. Tbe first two are
dance organizations and give balls alternate
fortnights at the Tivoll hotel
in Anconand tho Washington hotel in
Colon. These affairs are quite formal
and attract the best of tbe Americans
from all parts of the zone.
As for the Y. M. C. A., Its work on
tbo isthmus really deserves a chapter
to itself, for it has been one of the big
factors in the successful building of
tho canal. At first it was found impossible
to persuade men from the United
States to remain long on the isthmus.
The pay was good, the work interesting,
but homesickness found
easy victims and they resigned and
went back to the States in discouraging
numbers. Several remedies were
tried, and finally the commission established
a club house in every zqne
town of any size andwisely put them
In charge'of tho Y. M. C -.A. In these
houses are billiard rooms, bowling alleys,
gymnasiuma, soda fountains? libraries,
lounging rooms and a dozen
other conveniences, and4each house
has a hall large enough for dances and
amateur dramatics and musical
The secretaries in charge
have been exceedingly active in the
organization of .bowling, baseball, billiard
and other leagues, and tho tourneys
are continuous and of great interest
Of course no intoxicating
drinks are to be'found in these clubs,
but in other respects they are conducted
on lines so liberal as to be sometimes
surprising. In one of them, fbr
Instance, I saw a number of young
men and women dancing in tho hall, to
the music'of a phonograph, immediately,
after tho close of the' Sunday evening
religious service. This may have
,been an exceptlonal'case, as it-was in
one of the more isolated towns.
In Ancon,, Cristobal and some others
of the larger American towns flourishing
and these were united in a
zone federation wh'ich 'dissolved only
this year, feeling that its w.ork was
dono wish tho virtual completion of the
canal. The clubs have done a great

'study, and many social functions are
gWen under their auspices.
Ab may readily bo comprehended,
life for Americans in th'e zone Is
much llke'lifeila an American suburb-
fan townand it has Borne of the disad
vantages oi tqe latter, uoamp bqu) uncial,
Jealousies aroi prevalent hero, as
there, and not a few women have been
driven back to the States by' them.
Disputes over promotions and the assignments
of living quarters cause- bit
te'rness and estrangements, and of
course there are Innumerable torn-plaints
of undue Influences "pull" in
these matters. In some cases it must
be admitted there- has been cause for
these complaints,' and, sad to say,
often woman has been the cause. Her
influence with certain of tho high
cannot be doubted, and sometimes
it has results that are to be deplored.
Here is one Instance of thex power
exerted by "pull." Ajnan for Borne
years has held a responsible position
with the Panama Railroad company,
and who has a' wife, two daughters
and a young son, has been waiting
long for housekeeping quarters, which
are at a premium. Two minor clerks
of the railway had been attentive, to
the daughters, but being objectionable
to thefather, were discouraged. But
the clerks had some influential connections,
and in revenge have so contrived
things that the family in question
has been passed by repeatedly in
the assignment of housekeeping quarters.
The father and son live in one
building, (he mother and daughters in
another, and all must take their meals
at the hotel.
Naturally, not many of the Americans
on the isthmus will remain
there after the completion of the
canal. A few of the doctors may engage
