33 Every man on M;iui, of what nationality soever, has money if
1. - is willing to work for it. Koine have m.moy, who do not work
:: uch. Every one has at least a little, and some have a grout l:il.
Where such a condition of affairs exists., any legitimate business
established and ri. on right business methods will pay. That is
Vuy the News unhositntingly urges the establishment of new on
t rprises in YVailaku. TJu-e is right now a good opening in Wai
Viku for an apiary, a brewery , a coal yard, a drug store, an elec
t ric- plant, a foundry, a grocery, a harness shop, an ice plant, a jel
ls' factory, a handy kitchen, a laundry, a meat market, a news
.land, an oyster house, a picklo factory, a quilt manufactory, n res
taurant, a soap factory, a tan yard, an upholstery, a vegetable stall,
a wholesale store, an Xpress business and a yeast shop, provided
plenty of zeal be displayed in each of the above enterprises.
The proposition of establishing a bank in Wailuku is being
discussed in several quarters, and the question of whether or not
it would pay is being carefully weighed. Within a year or two
after Maui becomes a separate municipality, a county bank will be
an almost absolute necessity. And there is no doubt; but that a
savings, loan aud exchange bank, if established in Wailuku, would
prove a profitable institution. It was the wish of the Nrcws that
such an institution should be started with Maui capital, but from
present indications, it will, when started, be run as a branch of a
Honolulu bank, and the deposits of the Maui people will be invested
in Honolulu. Even that however would bo better that to have to
do without a bank.
H$ It would prove an interesting study to a philologist to observe
how the different races, with their diversity of tongues, who are
thrown together on the Islands, can communicate their ideas to
e ich other so readily. Conversation, as a line art, does not exist
lietweenthe.se various peoples, but Chinese.Japancse Hawaiians
i id haoles. with a few stock phrases in common, have no trouble
in savins' what thev wish to each
is a witty Frenchman once observed, that language ..v.i invented
to conceal ideas.
yH Although not yet accepted as a political axiom, Ktillit must
'ird will bo accepted as such, that 'money is the ruling power in
United States. This sounds harsh at the first utterance, but
speaking: dispassionately, why should it not be? The money power
is at least conservative, and will eventually prove to bo preser
vative. The millennium will have come when all wealth is incor
porated, and when ho who works ni )st will hold V.vi greatest
amount of dividend paying shares of it.
Cannot some method be devised whereby a uniform standard
of time can be adopted for all the Islands, or at least for the Island
f Maui? At present, it is riot safe to accept an invitation to dine
in a neighboring bailiwick on Maui, for fear of arriving with the
wm and walnuts. And it is somewhat bewildering for a resident
ii: Lahaina to start to Wailuku, and learn, on his arrival, that ho
has reached Wailuku a few minutes before he left Lahaina. by

general for all Ihe Islands, wo would recommend to hir.i that cen
iral Maui is a splendid field of operations, There is a crying need
for a boom in tree planting, with
good work along. We want more trees, both for fuel and as a
means of increasing ' the rainfall, .and it is to be hoped that the
good work can be started at once.
lH There was once a great oppprtunity to make money in buying
and holding shares in 'Ewa, H. C. $ S. Co., auuku and other
standard sugar stocks. Just as gppd chances yet are to bo found
in buying and holding Olaa, Kihei and Nahiku sugar stocks.
ID Now is the time for an enterprising Yankee to come to Maui
and go into t ?o business of manufacturing guava jolly: Thous

is a fortune for the man who starts this enterprise.

REPORT ON KISSING Byq.
( , 1 ' - 1
The so-called "k'wstng bug" made
a sensational debut in this country
lust Hummer, but it is likely lie will
not 1)0 hoard of this season, at least
bv tliat name. Entomologist L. O.
Howard, of the Agricultural TVjiart-
inont, some time ago made a special
eport on the kissing bug scare. His
conclusion is that the kissing bui,'
really exists, but no more than it has
always existed He believes the
term has been appropriated to Cover
all manner of cr-'oping aiid crawlinii
things that make miserable the fem
inine mind. All last summer re
ports kept coming in telling ubmit
the ravages of the kissing bug, Tin )'
started from a case in Washington,
where a man whs bitten by a strange
bug. the bite causing a remarkable
swelling. Hut the strange thing was
that few of the alleged kissing bugs
captured were alike. One young
woman who professed to have been
kissed exhibited a swollen cheek and
a common moth miller to prove it.
and it took several scientists to con
vince her that the moth could not
have been the guilty one and that it
must have been a mosquito. Every
summer records manv instances ot
insect bites that are only ''fortui
tously septic.'' a the scientists say
which in plebian English moans
bites not prisonous of them
selves bat pnis.nous because the
insect has been previously feeding
on carrion or something else infected
with poisonous germs. Mosijuito
bites are often thus prisonous, and
even the bite of the common house
fly may be fatal und,?r peculiar con
ditions. Notwithstanding that may
of the bites of the infamous kissing
bugs as reported wore in rea'ity the
bites of familiar insects, there are
several candidates on which may
reasonably be heaped the opprob
rium of the name, according to Prof.
Howard. One of those is the Redu
vius 1'ersonatus, known in Europe
as the cannibal bug. This insec t is
about three-quarters of an inch long
and look .-s considerbly like the com
mon squash bug, familiar to garden
ers. It feeds profusely on the com
mon bod buy but it will att'iek a hu
man being if forced to it or roughly
handled. Tt has a long proboscft or
beak which it plunges deeply into its
victim, and its sting is exceedingly
painful. The swelling and pain will
last a week or more, and mav be
fatal a good deal depending on the
pays c.tl couuiU'.iu ( f the person
stung. When t'.ie kissing bug made
its appearance scientists identified
t as JJelaaolesles pkipes at first,
until details from many parts of the
country showol that this species
alone could not he held responsible
for all the injuries. These live under
logs and stones and run swiftly when
surprised. Of all the blood-thirsty
insects found in this nation the most
ferocious and the best-feared is the
blood-suckiny eone-none. There are
several variations of this species, but
they are all very closely allied. The
head of the insects is furnished with
a sort of dagger projecting outward
and downward from the head, which
it plunges through the skin of any
living creature upon which it may
find itself preparatory to sucking its
blood. It is admitted that the cone-
nose has a specific poison of its own,
but many cases of severe poisoning
by its b'.tes are due to foreign putre
factive germs present on the prob
oscis this insect being a feeder on
One of the most remarkable things
developed by. the kissing bug' hive
tigation is the fact that spiders do
not bite. Formerly many cases of
spider bites were reported, and peo
pie have lived in great tear of the
monster who so cruelly killed Tom
Thumb- ia the fairy tale; but the
eatomologist reports that uo species
of spider found in this counry is provid.
ed withany means of biting or stinging
The bites attributed to spiders have
been produced by the various insects
which have lately gone under the
name of the kissiii"; bug. Tito real
villains have therefore now been
unmasked, and the inoffensive siidor

Text of a Lately Discovered Hin
du Legend of Pemalti Creation.
Valuable as illustrating the ancient
Oriental conception' of tlie'charal'lev
of woman, is the following lc&end,
which an English writer, Mr.' Ham,
has translated from a Sanskrit book,
The Surging Of the Ocean of
Time," recently brought to light by
arohlvologists: - '
"At the beginning of time, Twa.h-
tri the Vulcan of the Hindu' tfi.y
thology created the world. ' Rut
When he wished to create a woman
he found that he had employed all his
material in ,the creation of man,
There did not remain' one solid cle
ment. Then' Twashtri. perplexed.
fell into a pt'oloimd ' meditation. He.
roused himself as follows: He took
the roundness of the moon, the un
dulations of the' serpent,'' the entwin
ing of climbing plants, the trembling of
the grass, the slenderncss of Vlto lose-
vine, and the velvet Of the flower, the
lightness of the leaf arid the glance
of the fawn, the gaycty of the sun's
rays und tears of the mist,' the In
constancy of the wind and the timid
ity of the hare, the vai.i'tv of 'the
peacock aud the softness of the down
on the throat of the swallow, the
hardness of the diamond, the ' sweet
flavor of honej' and cruelty of the
tiger, the warmth of tire, the chill
of snow, the chatter of the jay,' and
the cooing of the turtle clove. l' He
united all this and formed a woman
Then he .made a present of her to
a man. ' Eight days later the man
one to Twashtri and said: '
" 'My lord, the creature you gave
me poisons my existence. She. chat
ters without rest, she takes all my
time, she laments for nothing at all,
and is always ill.'1 And Twashtri
received the woman again.
Hut eight clays later the man
came again to the god ana said:
'my lord, my life is very solitary
since 1 returned tins creature. 1
remember she danced before me
sin''ing. I recall how she glanced at me
from the corner of her eye, that she
played with me, clung to me.' And
Twashtri returned the woman to
him. Three days only passed r.iul
Twashtri saw the man coining to
him again. 'My lord' said he 'I do not
understand exactly how, but I am
sure the woman causes me more an
noyance than' pleasure. I beg of
you to relieve me of her.'
"Jiut Twaslitri cru'd: uo your
way and do your best.' .And the
man cried: I cannot nvc with
her!' 'Neither can .you live without
her, replied Twashtri.
And the man was sorrowful, mur
muring: o is me, 1 can neither
live with or without her. .'
