Wanted, a brick county building and a brick schoolhouse at
WaihiUu. It is well known that wood or plank will not stand th
ravages of this climate, and what is the. use or sense in erecting
expansive buildings of a material which,wiU, not survive the life of
the builder? Of course it will cost a little mere afirst.but in the end
it will prove much -cheaper to erect our public. buildings of a ma
terial which will last for the next hundred years wjthout serious
decay. Let us have brick or, stone buildings by all means.
S Baseball deservedly stand9 at the head of all athletic .sports,
not only as an enjoyable game, butalso a factor in the physical and
jnjental development of the active participants in the game. Polo
develops the arms, sparring is brutal, cricket is logy and one-sided,
and so on dpwn the whole list. Baseball absorbs all the good and
rejects all. the harmful features
game so evenly develops all the
calls for so much quick braiuwork.

game so fully develops the physical and mental parts of a boy, and
every boy should be encouraged to play the game. It not only
rounds out a boy pnysically and
self control and it teaches him the
qualities of mind and heart,, such
perseverance, which are needed

Brazil. Already tnere is a strong German population there owning

crease this immigration of German settlers, who are even now
numerically strong enough to control local politics. A free and
liberal form of government will be encouraged and the organization
of a colonial "Military department will bo fostered, so that Germans
can serve then-time in the army without returning to Germany,
which will exercise a paternal c ire over the colonists, thus practi

St I'1 conversation with a gentleman recently on the subject of
poultry raising on Maui, tne News was informed that the reason
.why there are no successful poultry ranches on Maui is not be
cause such ranches cannot be made a success, but rather the mar
ket is so limited, and shipments to Honolulu 60 unprofitable that
large poultry ranches would not rind a market for their output.
Maybe there is something in this viaw of thb proposition.

How Scissors Ai Made 1
Though.no complexities arff Invok
ed in the making of scissors or much
skill required, yet the process of
manufacture is very Interesting.
They are forged from good bar steel
heated to redness, each blade being
cut off with sufficient to form tht
shank, or that destiued to become
the cutting part, and bow, or that
which later on is fashioned into the
holding portion. For the bow a small
hole is punched, and this afterward
expanded to the required size by
hammering it on a conical anvil, after
which both shank and bow are filed
into a more perfect, shape and the
hole bored in the middle for the rivet.
The blades are next ground and the
handles filed smooth and burnished
with oil and emery, after which the
pairs are fitted together and tested
as to- their easy working.
They are not yet finisned, how
ever they have to undergo harden
ing and tempering and be again ad
justed, after which tlicy are finally
Jut together again and polished for
the third time.. In oomparing the
edges of knives and scissors it will
be noticed, of course that the latter
are not in anv way so, sharply
ground a tho former, and that iu
cutting scissors crush and bruise
more than knives..
There Is No Mikado.
Mr. W. S. Gilbert was no doubt
primarily responsible for the belief
which is everywhere prevalent that
the emperor of Japan is always cal
led the mikado by his people. . Ask
nine men out of ten what is the offi
cial title cf the ruler of the islands of
the chrysanthemum and they will
probably think they are being made
fun of. Assure them that the ques
tion is asked in all sober seriousness
and they will give that of the title
or Mr. Gilbert's imperial opera.
For all this, the nine men
out of ten would be wrong. His maj
esty is known as "tenno hai-ka,"
which means "his imperial majesty."
Thus the people of Japan address
their sovereign 1 exactly as do the
subjects of tho imperious kaiser.
Mikado used at one time to be the
title, for it s the oldest form of ad
dress in use. It has, however, fallen
into abeyance for several gen
erations. Gypsies in an Automobile.

which is a gasolinu affair, is large
and very handsome, and appears at

dining room, and in the front i3 the

that he can ma!:e fifty miles a day in
the automobile if ho wents to. Not
withstanding his possession of an
automobile he is still ready to trade
in horses. Kansas Citv Journal.

Black Sea Peculiarities.
The Black sea differs in a most re
markable manner from other seas
and oceans. A surface current flows
continuously from the Black sea into
the Mediterranean and an under
current from tho Mediterranean into
the Black sea. The latter current is
salt, and, being heavier than the
fresh water above, it remains stag
nant at the bottom. Being saturated1
with sulphuretted hydrogen, this
water will not maintain life, and so
the. Black sea contains no living in
habitants below the depth of about
100 fathoms. The- deeper water when
brought to the surface smells exactly
like rotten eggs.
Where Tall Alcn Are Found.

France; Yorkshire, England, and

and northern Kentucky, is as decided

forty-second is that of the big cities.
Medicinal Properties of Cabbage.
In olden limes cabbage was sup

medicinal virtues. Among other

Cato, writing of the cabbage, said:

Roma has done without physicians
for GOO years."
