The Daily completes his article on
"Porto Rico," describing the island ana
telling of the occupations, life, and
character of the inhabitants.
The three great staples of Porto
Rico are sugar, coffee and tobacco. The
exportation of oranges and pineapples
brings a large income to the produc-
ers. More thati 3,750,000 pounds of
coffee have been exported to Cuba,
Spain and Italy during the last two
months at an average price of $17.90
a hundred pounds.
Porto Rico has 1,300 rivers and
streams, most of them being narrow
and shallow. From the depths of the
huge ravines rise the sound of the1
tumbling water, but the rivers are hid-
den from sight by the mass of tropical
growth. By toiling down steep-sided
hills one is at last rewarded by a vis-
ion of circling falls and boiling waters
embowered in arches of unfamiliar
trees and pendent vines, which fills the
soul of a lover of nature with thrills
Porto Rico possesses the finest road
in the western hemisphere. It is the
magnificent military road from Poncei
across the mountains to San Juan. TheI
road was built by the Spanish govern-
ment from 1880 to 1888. It is 80 miles
in length, its highest point is threei
thousand feet above the sea and it
cost $4,000,000. The road is 'ma-
cadamized from end to end with finely1
broken rock of carbonate of lime. In
hardness and smoothness it is likei
such passes as the St. Gothard and the
famous roads in the Engadine. It com-
pares favorably with the wonderful,
road built by Napoleon across the
'Simplon pass, connecting the Rhonei

The system of American education
has prevailed in the island since 1898.
There are grammar and high schools
all over the island and the education
of the children is entrusted to com-
petent teachers. The University of
Porto Rico and the College of Engi-
neering and Agriculture are the main
institutions of learning in the island.
All the subjects are taught in English,
while Spanish is taught as a "modern
language." These two schools offer
practically the same courses of study
as the modern American universities.
Naturally the Spanish language is
spoken by the natives, but English is
also spoken by a large proportion of
the inhabitants. The majority of the
people are members of the Roman
Catholic church, although other forms
of religion are tolerated.
The negroes of Porto Rico are in a
minority; they do not form a very con-
siderable part of the population. They
constitute the laboring class of the
island, and seem thoroughly contented
with their lot, which is much better
than that of the negroes in the French,
English and independent islands.
Baseball, basketball, track meets,
tennis, volley ball and football are
the chief sports. A keen interest and
enthusiasm is. shown by the students
and the people in general in all these
The social customs are molded after
Spanish traditions. The Porto Rican
Spaniards of the upper class are the
descendants of military men. They
maintain the pride of their descent with
all the stateliness of grandees. Some
of them are wealthy. This class of
white blood and Spanish feelings, opin-
ions, and prejudices, form the dis-
tinctive feature of the population.

NEAR TEUTON DEAD-LINE1
FRENCH REFUSAL TO COMPLY
WITH REQUEST CAUSE OF
Berlin, Jan. 17.-French prisoners
will be held in concentration camps
within range of the French guns until
the French government has complied
with demands forwarded sometime ago
by the German government which de-
clared that the French were keeping
their prisoners within the war zone,
and which demanded that the German
prisoners be given equal treatment to
that accorded the Frenchmen in Ger-
many. No reply was received from the
French before the time limit specified,
and the Teuton government has taken
action. The official press report
"The German government had taken
measures to modify this intolerable
state. The French government was
sent a note indicating the time by
which an answer must be given and
demanding that all war prisoners in
the operation district be transported
back to a point at least 18 miles be-
hind the firing line, established in well
equipped camps, and put on a footing
of equality with the French war pris-
oners in Germany, as to general treat-
ment, mail service, and visits by rep-
resentatives of neutral embasdies.
"It was announced that in case of
refusal, several thousand French war
prisoners would be transported from
behind the German front into the firing
zone, and submitted to the same con-
ditions as the German war prisoners
behind the French front. Since the
French government has not answered
up to the time fixed, which was Jan.
15, it is announced that the reprisals
will now be carried out. These will
continue until the German requests are
fulfilled by the French government."
Dr. Peterson Urges Health Campaign
"The campaign for the prevention of
contagious diseases should go on, as
it is being conducted by our health
service, still farther," said Dr. R. Pet-
erson of the Medical school Tuesday
night at a public lecture in the Natural
Science auditorium given under the
auspices of the University health serv-
ice representatives. A short meeting
of the representatives was held prior
to the lecture, and the motion, that all
members should pay a fee of one dol-
lar a year, made and passed at the first
meeting, was explained.
Adelphi to Campaign for Room Funds

tee at their meeting Tuesday night to
