4Having heard vivid descriptions of
the elaborate carving process to
which captives were subjected by
1-laytian rebels, M. E. Jones, of De
troit, frankly admis that he felt no
articular curiosity to witne" dem
onstrations of their skill and perhaps
participate in them, when a band of
the rebels attacked Port-au-Prince
while he was in that city recently.

Toledo from a nine months' tour

Little wonder the law-abiding people
are frightened. We had one scare af

country has had one king, two em
