Recently the manager was driving
the attorney from Wailuku to La

the roads had been so washed out by
freshets that the party left the road
and drove along the beach.' At a
turn in the beach, a monster ' turtle,
weighing at least 300 pound was
seen ahead of them asleep and sun
ning himself on the warm beach
sands. Antone pulled up his team
and handed the reins to his fare. Dis
mounting he secured a long rope,
crept into the kiawe bushes, and
stalked his prey, while visions of rich
soup and fat turtle steaks caused the
mouth of the attorney , to water.
When Antone reached a point oppo

from the brush, sent his lariat whiz.

a trained vaquero, and dropped the

his prize, which never moved.. It had
