He was travelling on horseback
from liana to Kipahula, and his horse
left the main trail and was travelling
along a by-path, when it stumbled
and came near falling into a hole, the
mouth of which had been covered. As
the hole presented a jome what 'sin
gular appearance, Mr. Devereux dis
mounted and proceeded to examine
it. It was an artificial hole, and peer
ing into it he discovered a larye
number, nearly a dozen, ancient cal
abashes and fragments of tapa cloth
which had evidently been hidden
there many years ago, perhaps with
,he bones of a dead chief. The cal
abashes were of koa wood, and were
in a good state of preservation. At

they are estimated to be worth sev-

tank standing near also collapsed
and the pil caught fire from the heat
of the burning building, s The hoist
engine, dynamo and other minor
machinery in the building were des
troyed, but the large boilers and

the extent of the damage is in the
shaft because as soon after the fire
as thu mouth of the shaft could be
reached, it was covered with boards,
over which dirt was heaped to the
depth ot three or four feet, effectual
ly shutting out the air. The shaft
will bo left covered until it is certain
that the fire, if there is any in the
shaft is entirely smothered.
There was no one except the Japan

the firo broke out. Only one boiler
was in use, being the one winch sup

Wommack, a prominent planter of

new process of making sugar which
promises to revolutionize the industry

to divulge the secret until a patent
is received but says he converts his
whole product from ordinary syrup
into sugar with only a small por

black glucose with scarcely a trace
of sucrose and as hard as a bt ick. He
