to stir a competent talker Into activ
ity. Recently I involved myself in
an altercation with an esteemed Teu
tonic friend on th comparative mer
its of French and German guns as
exemplified in the. Balkan-Turkish
war. The gentleman whom I irritat-
ed into a state approaching tPinpor
I ary rabies has long ago adopted the
! i'cited States as his foster-mother,
j but he still maintains that the Krupp
I runs lead the world.
I will confess that I know no more
about gunnery than about archery or
embroidery, but I had happened on an
article in a New York paper which
criticised the Turkish-adapted Ger
man military system severely and
ended with the statement that the
system had proved itself as inferior
to the French system of the Bulga
rian army as the Krupp's had proved
inferior to the French Schneider
Creusots. Upon this meager founda
tion I built a fabric of fancy that sooiv
reduced, my worthy opponent almost
to tears. He protested vehemently
vociferously, surlily and finally' belli
cosely that the system and the guns
were al! right they must be all right,
because they came from Germany
and that all the trouble has been in
the use of them by the Turks. The
debate waxed warm and I am afraid
that my friend did not recover his
equilibrium even after I gave up the
attempt to tfut-argue him and moved
on to other and less easy conquests
of the sense of humor.
Stories of Bluff doctor Hutchinson.
Among the stories told about Dr.
Hutchinson, the man who put Rev.
Mr, Mason of New. Zealand on to
water divining, I remember two that
were told me by a kamaaina who ha3
Dr. Hutchinson thought it unwise
on the part of Bishop Staley to pro

Anglican church, ia Hawaii, and when
Mr, Staley was leaving for England
to, seek , ducats . and dedication the
doctor advised him not to come back.
But he did come back after a few
nioons and as he was coming dowp
the gangway his eye lighted, on h!3
bluff old English friend.

freezingly returned the loctor as he
tacked a pace.
, "Why, Doctor Hutchinson, you
know me, surelyI'm ' Bisnop Staley,
just returning from England." '
"Huh, Bishop Staley I told you
not to came back," growled the doc.to
as he turned away.
Speaking of the Maud Powell con
cert, the diversity of opinions as to
her playing are numerous. There are
some who aver that she is perfect,
others who could not see but. a few
elements of greatness in her playing,
others who give her. credit for be
ing a marvelous technician hut . who
found no "soul" in her admittedly
skilful bowing, and so on.
Of course, Madame Powell came
here with a hakrof greatness around
her, undoubtedly one of the best-advertised
oi living musicians, probably
the best-advertised American music
ian. And to some minds any criticism
of her is sacrilege. To some . she is
above criticism. Not, however, to
many others who were disappointed in
her first concert. Frankly speaking,
she was not. at her best, and those
who know Maud Powell at her best,
as well as those who know. music at
its best, know that Madame Powell

effectiveness of the modern rapid-fire
field guns of the allies, as compared
with the poorer showing of the just
as medtrn rap!d-fire jams of the
Turks, the supremacy of the one typ?
of gun over the. other being ascribed
to structural differences. The field
guns used by all the allies, with the
exception of Montenegro, are the
French Schneider-Creusots. while the
Turkish guns are the German Krupps.
This war is the first in which modern
quick-firing guns have been used by
both sides; and France is jubilant
that the type of guns used by her
own army has apparently proved su
perior to those of the Germans.
"The breech of the Creusot gun
opens at the back like a door, being
hinged on one side. The Krupp gun.
on the other hand, has a breech open
ed and closed by a wtdge much re
sembling a bolt. The body of the

John M. Kapena, who was minister
of finance in one of th latest Gibson
cabinets, was among the most highly
polished natives ever 6een in public
life. He dressed well and he could
express, himself in excellent English,
but according to this story he was
somewhat inpecunious in Dr. Hutch-
J insou's time. At all events it is re
lated, that he borrowed a few simole-,
ons from his English friend, then
minister of the interior. Dr. Hutch
inson had been, on an official visit
to one of the other islands and was
just etepping- upon .the wharf when
he was effusively ' greeted by Mr.
Kapena, in spick and span raiment
with a rose in his coat lapel.
"Good morning, Dr. Hutchinson.
How do you do, Dr. Hutchinson?" the
emminent Hawaiian warbled.
"Good morning. Dr. Hutchinson, be

either underestimated, her audience
on the first night or could not reach
her marvelous ."heights.. At the sec
ond concert, she responded nobly to
that strange stimulus which touches
the musician, the painter, the poet,
the sculptor. And the last concert
was much the better of the two.
Perhaps Ihe clue to Madame
Powell's playing todey is found in
the fact that she is forty-five years
old, that she' has gone through twenty
seven years of work in public, that
her mastery of the violin has been
achieved by more than three decades
of incessant toil. She has won her
present h?gh place in the musical
world by patience and industry tha'
have had few equals in musical his
tory. There never lived a musician
in whom the keen edge of spontaneity
and inspiration is not dulled at times
by overwork and the accumulated
stxain of years of public perform
being in that sacred spot at that ap
pointed time is more notable than
the announcement of the celebrities
to appear therein.
On the night of the Maud Powell
concert, two tourists, one a beautifully-gowned
woman, the other a well
groomed man, sat in front of me. I
heard the woman say:
"It must be a great thing to have
Maud Powell play in Honolulu."
"Yes," rejoined the man, "but did
you notice the rube sign above the
door? It reminds me of Bird Center
or New Rochelle."
It is a "rube sign." when you stop
to think about it. and I commend a
