$ A Very lively and general interest is being manifested by the
trio snrofiBB of

practical and substantial form; The people ot Maui should make

Si Hawaiian tradition tells us that
found their war to the Islands.-a
uninterrupted phalanx spread out
Maalaea Bay. This is quite probable, and the destruction oS this
forest should be remedied as far as possible. The Unitedi States
government has taken up the matter of restoring forests in earn
and the territory should follow
moftey at its back must take the
offered for successful forestry work. Even the children at school
should grow up strongly imbued with this idea, sorhat they at least
may repair the mischief which their forbears- have done
The proposition of establishing a sugar refinery on the Is
lands is a pipe dream for some years yet, if at all. Sugar is sent
directly from many of the ports on the Islands to the coast or the
east where there are refineries, with the minimum of handling,
whereas if there were a refinery on the Islands, sugar would have
to be shipped to the refinery, unloaded, refined, and then refthipped
to the coast. Besides, the materials necessary for the refining
'"process would nearly all have to be imported, to say- nothing of
the first cost of erecting a refinery. However if the time should come
when a refinery, should be established, Kahului is the logical spot
for its establishment. " .
SSL The Advertiser isjmaking a strenuous fight with pen and pen.
. cil against calling aniextra session of the legislature for the pur
pose of raising funds to meet the current expenses of the govern
ment. But it is a solemn truth that something has got to be done,
and done right away. If not an extra session, what? The Adver
tiser shouldjeither telVus or stop fighting the only practical method
of raising revenues. It is all bosh about raising the county seat
fight again at,anyextra session. Let's have the extra session
and-be done with it.
JJJjj There is not a more healthful breakfast fruit on the Islands
or on earth than the papaya, yet how many readers of this editor
ial had a generous slice of this delicious golden globe for breakfast
this morning? The papaj a makes a rapid growth, maturing its
' fruit within a year after being planted, and is a prolific bearer
the year round. It take3 but little room, shooting heavenward in
a slender spire, and heeds but little attention. Curious that more
of. them aro not planted in and about our door yards.
i$l Our able and efficient legislature has just appropriated $5,000
000 for the next two years expenses. A mere bagatelle, truly,
but enough to skimp along on till times get better. Now it may be
fairly supposed that having appropriated this amount, they will in
ttra session, pass a loan bill to cover the amount of the appro
priation. Guess w had better let the extra session go and wear
jur last year's shirt waist for another session.

Washington's steward was. a. man

tinually quarreled about the market

February, and as Washington saw it
coming into the dining room he was
charmed and asked what lish it was.
"It is a shad," replied the steward;
" a very fine shad. It was the only
one m the market, and I bought it

the steward, "and it is cooked to

living anthropoids did exist.
Pithecanthropus erectus is consid

man. The Calaveras skull is reject

quarternary, and 220,000 years is
assigned as the length of this period.
Add to this number 10,000 years for
