A treat for our readers that we have arranged for is a series of twelve illustrated articles on The Panama Canal and the Isthmus in History and Romance By Edward W. Pickard Mr. Pickard is that type of globe-trotting author who seeks the quaint and curious place* and people as subjects for his clever descriptive articles. In his present series of twelve articles which we have ar ranged to print, he has touched not only the actual work of building the canal, and the people who have accomplish ed it, but has gone into what the newspaper worker knows as the side lines, and which as a rule are of as much interest as the main story. This is par ticularly true in this case. After our readers have com pleted the last of Mr. Pickard's N articles they will have a better understanding of the Panama Canal, and conditions within and surrounding the canal zone. The flr*t artida of the series will be printed is our issue of Report of the Conditio* ol the Bank of Martin County Willianistoi* c , t tfae cIoM of blui .
