A late dispatch says the stingless
bee has at last arrived, having been
produced by an English apiarist
named Burrows, after two years of
experiment. A description of the
new bee which hat been received
here, says that the hybrids are
splendid workers and are less liable
to disease than the ordinary honey
producer. Barrows mated Cypian
drones with Italian queen* to pro
dace the new bee. wJhc*, While pos
scsnnff a stager, cannot useitasa
weapon of defence.
To Improve Water-front
One of the most important and
satisfactory moves yet made in con
nection with bettering the appear
ance of Friday Harbor's water
front is the effort to have a retain
ing • wall built before filling begins.
Several had desired this, but had
not advanced the thought seriously
because of the expense involved, but
L. J. Irwin. chairman of the com
mittee appointed by the Improve
ment Club to have charge of affairs
on the day when everybody helps a
little toward the filling process, had
a notion that if an opportunity were
offered, the citizens would subscribe
enough to defray this preliminary
expense in order to have the work
done risht while about it, and so he
started out with a subscription pa-
per, with the result that enough
has been subscribed and donated to
warrant having the wall built.
Messrs. McCrary & Mosena will do
the work at little more than cost,
sand and gravel and hauling will
likely be contributed and cement
furnished without profit.
The time set by the committee for
the great day for volunteer work i 3
Saturday. October 26 when every
one who is willing will be on hand
to help as those in charge may indi
cate. And don't forget ihat the
ladies will furnish plenty to eat on
that day for those who work.
Next Monday morning at sun
rise the tide will be right for put
ting in the falsework or forms for
the concrete, and a few volunteers,
carpenters and others are asked to
assist for a short time. Loyal Lar
son will have charge; see him.-
About $70 has already been subt
scribed, and this with the contribu
ted labor and teams already in sigh t,
insures the completion of the wall.
If the Friday Harbor Improve
ment Club does nothing more than
see the finish of this splendid work,
ft will have accomplished enough to
warrant its meetings for the winter.

W. E. Humphrey's Visit
Hon. Wm. E. Humphrey, candi
idate for re-election to congress on
the Republican ticket, was a Friday
Harbor visitor last Friday, and gave
a talk in the afternoon at Odd Fel
lows' hall and in the evening ? atW
Madden'sv Corners. While we : are
not in sympathy with the thought
which Republican speakers are mak- :
ing prominent, to the effect that the ■?
only thing which will keep this
country from going to the bow--i'
wows is the continuation in power
of the Republican party, yet it mustK:
be r- confessed ; that Mr. Humphrey's v
presentation of the matter here was t
fair, with no effort made to scare
anyone. His talk was well received
and the impression made was good.
- He dined twice while in the city,
once >as guest of ! Mayor Gap ron ?at.^
his home, and again with John L.

Tuberculosis Day Oct 27
.. Among the. most vital phases of
the tuberculosis question which will
be discussed throughout the state
on Tuberculosis Day. Oct. 27, as
announced recently by the Wash
ington Association for f the Preven
tion and Relief of Tuberculosis, is
the one dealing with the treatment
and cure of the disease. The fact
that mo drug for the cure of this
malady has yet been discovered, but
that so far the treatment recognized
by scientific men of the country is
a combination of forest air, whole
some food and rest taken under the m
advice of a competent' physician -
will be made prominent. The r fall
acy of the restless search for health
in a new climate by those afflicted
by the disease is also a point that
will be emphasized, as it is now con
ceded by leading authorities that
the best place to recover is usually
in the climate in which the disease
was contracted, and that a change
to new surroundings ■ among strang- m.
ers should be made only after a
thorough consideration of the situ
ation. AmA
Those wishing literature and ogfl
lines about Tuberculosis Day atgi*
asked to write to the Goonty Leagci
