ah WasmwooTro. April . - During last per
week there was considerable talk in naval ceil
circles about the responsibility for the coa
recent disaster at Samoa. A number of the
the most pronounced disciplinarians of sidi
' the service are not slow to condemn the s a
the aetion of Admiral Kimberly in allowing pad
stag the vessels to be caught in such a storm pon
without using some precautionary meas- T
gt ures. This was the season of the year wre
fib. when hurricanes and tidal waves might not
be looked for, and the sailing directions and
plainly state this. Many officers think, of 4
and especially since the story of the es- ing
a Ia cape of the British steamer Calliope, that ml
there is saure to be an investigation by a I
was court of inquiry. The loss of life and yea
000. ships will have to be inquired into. If tim
dosS there was coal enough to get up steam on lay
tthe ships, It was, they say, Admiral Kim
It berly's duty to have fired up and ran out adi
of the month of the harbor, as the com- doe
mander of the Calliope did. and then ride sta
ate out the gale. If it is found there was no Sat
the coal, then the cause of this state of af- ku
safairs should be inquired into. and the re- sn

The Ounce of Prevention.
Is Under the above heading the New Yor
rl Weld of Feb. 10th. contains an cultorial,
of which the following are a few extracts:
"Physicians and unprofessional mturn of
sense agree that if people would take a little
of the pains to prevent disease that they do
to have it cured that the civilized world
le would be much less like a vast hospital than
s it is now. * * " * But the idea of a regular
and stated physical examination, even of
it persons who are apparently well, is an ex
a collent one. The approachties of pulmonary
I* complaints, kidney troubles, and many of
f the other ills that flesh is heir to are so in
f sidious as not to be apparent to their victim.
Ie " * * * In nothing is it truer than in dis
Ig ease that 'an ounce of prevention is worth a
m pound of cure.'
* Thiere lsagreatdealof wisdom in what the
r eWorld remarks. Individuals, as a rule, do

Besides, it has been deflnitely ascertained
