vesligated. There is a belt of country extending from Kihei along
ihrt iaiir.:irl lino tn Snrpnlfp lsville which contains millions of
tons of readily quarried stone which it is claimed could be utilized
for building purposes, us it splits.' straight and is not grained. ' If

Tne question of disarmament by nil the Powers has been
suggested by Sir Charles Dilke in the House of Commons, with
the added suggestion that Great Britain may take the initiative in
the matter. Tnere may come a time when the nations will be
ready to turn their swords into floughstiares, and permit th lion
nud t he limb to lie down together, white a little child leads them,
bet the time u not. ripe for that yet, because there is too much
territory to be subjected to settlement. Great Britain might be
wjlling to stop war ship building, if the other powers would do so,
but that would leave her the mistress of the. .seas , The same is
true of the land armament of the different worjd powers, and no
satisfactory agreement could possibly be reached at present, conse
quently any present hope for disarmament must necessarily

of.organizing a club is one which should be followed by. each of the
teams in the league, for several reasons. In the first place it tends
to foster a teaiu spirit, and enables the friends of the team to .rally
under its banner and to its support. In the second place it teaches

The Senate is making a serious mistake in the matter of cen
soring the House expenses, and tne House is perfectly justified in
taking the stand it has in the matter-,"!! the Senate cuts down its
ow;n expnses,to the lowest reasonable sum it can, it nil! have-done
all its constituency expect of it.; The House is not a kindergarden;
ts members have hair on their faces, and some graybeards at
that The House is answerable only to the people, and if the
members of the House are unduly extravagant, the press and the
people will sufficiently remember and roast the . guilty - ones. The
Senate has assumed an unjust and arbitrary attitude in the matter,
from which they should recede at once. ,

-A curious proposition, with two sides to it has arisen ' in Ken
tucky. Two healthv young men have been sentenced to be hanged
; for murder, and they have been requested by physicians to allow
themselves to be inoculated with the virus of a particularly deadly
disease, for experimental purposes, a proposition which' they have
. taken .under consideration. While science mijht benefit by such An
, experiment, still it would be at. the sacrifice) nf the most sacred
. right which any one can possess, and that is the right to a healthful
, body. .It would be too dangerous a precedent to be established;
, and the authorities will doubtless prevent it, even if the young
men should consent. . . ..
fX 'The Nevv 'as curator, of thfe' morals o'f Wailuku records a
protest against gambling in connection with our base ball games.
A bet is generally nothing mora than a fool's argument, and the
. more sparingly it is indulged in the better it will be for the tone
arid quality of base ball on Maui, Of course it will be indulged in
to a limited extent, and the News confesses a willingness to stake
a little even money on next Sunday's game, aud let the other fellow
pick his team, but when it comes
or $500 on tne gamer the matter
of tru sport, and will lead td demoralization and the ruin of base

$2$ Aueer.stbfy comes frotn Honolulu, with reference td, the flro
posed intention of the lower house to burn its vouchers,' aud thus
prevent the people from knbwiag how the public money has been
spent. It seems almost incredible that such a thing could be true,
and a legislature in the states which should do such a thing would
be mobbed. For the sake ot decency, the House should not do this
thing, and if they do, thbse of th'efti opposed 'to it should go1 on
recrjrdfco, that the guilty ones could be exposed to the" shame of
their own infamy. '

'The cadets at the Military academy
fttWent Point nre not favored as ore
often the students in colleges and
universities who have wealthy pa
rents that is, they are not furnished
with in unlimited amount of cash to
buy "extras" fo rooms, clothes and
luxuries. All the cadets stand on
the same footing and receive JOUO a
year, plut the commutation or ra
tions amounting to $109.50 a year
However, with proper economy this
yearly allowance is sufficient for the
support of a cadet.
The army cadet who goes to the
Military academy with spendthrift
hubitssoon receives, a decided and
severe cneck. As an instance, a cadet
some time ago went to the superin
tendent for an order for four shirts,
but the superintendent peremptorily
refused to give his approval. The
young man was sorely in need, and
he attempted to convince his super!
or of the fact. The latter look up the
cadet's account book and perusing it
a couple of moments threw it back
to him, "I have no doubt you are in
great, necu or these shirts or you
would not present this order, !ut you
are in debt, and there's no excuse for
you." The young cadet, with tears
starting in his eye." and a trembling
voice, responded: "But, colonel, I am
almost destitute of changes of cloth
lnr. 1 nave only one shirt to mv
buck, and that is a fatigue jacket.'
The colonel was immovable aud sim
ply said as he dismissed the cad
from his presence, "Well, Mr. , I
would advice you to wear that fa
tiguo jacket until you get out of
debt but be careful that you can pass
muster ot the inspection." New

men are very likely to. become joint
beneficiaries ot a great scheme of co
operation in making the most ot the
corn crop.' Not of the grain merely,
but of the whole plant, stalk, leaves,
pith, tassels; husks, cobs ard kernels.
After a loug. course of experimenta
tion, carried on at Kanakee,' 111 , un
der the encouragement of thte Nat
ional Agricultural Department it is
found that high grade paper can be
proritably manufactured, in different
varieties, from the various part A of
the plant. One kirtd is made frjom
the hard shell of 'the stalk, another
,f tom the pith aod a , third from ' the
,husk. "From the pith is turnd out
the finest grade of oil paper, Ttlmost
equal to linen paper," so it is claimed
by experts at ths department. ,A
machine has been invented and is
now being manufactured which will
take the cornstalk, with the oaf still
Onlthusk the ear, separate the husk
from the stock and then remove the
shell from the pith. Sending this
mjachine into the fields, the paper
manufacturers will propose to far
mers to buy their corn crops as Ihey
stand in the fields, If the farmers
wish the corn after it has been hulk
ed, it will be passed back to them;
otherwise it will be marketed by the
owner of the machine, who will con
tort every rruiiiiiiiuu part of tne
plant into some form of manufacture.

Early Time Systems.
The gnomon, the predecessor of
tt.e sundial, was probably one of the
enrliest devices for the reckoning of
time and it muy reasonably be con
cluded that the Egyptian pyramids,
witn their great altitude, formed
part of a design for timekeeping by
the shadow thrown on the desert
sands. The obelisk, too, in all prob
ability served the purpose, for as a
matter of history an ooelisk at Rome
was actually used for a sundial in ti e
time of Emperor Aupusts.
If wo could step on board of a
Malay prao, we should see floating in
a bucket of water a cocounut shell
having a small hole in the bottom
through which the water by slow de
grees finds its way.into the interior.
The hole in the shell will sink in an
hour, when the man on wutch calls
the trnie and sets it afloat again.
The Chinese have a water clock in
use at the present time, which inven
tion thev ascribe to Hwangti, who
lived, according to their chronology,
more than twenty-five centuries be
fore Christ. '
The time system of early Rome was
of the rudest character. The day
and night each were divided into four
watches, the periods of which were
roughly determined by observations

Locked In With a Martinet
The writer was once closeted with
a patient whom he had no suspicion
of being mad until the latter got out
of bed, turned the key of the door and
preferred a mild request to the
writer to have his throat, cut, hand
ing him at the' same time an open
pocketknife, which he produced from
under his pillow. I obiected to the
knife as being too small for the pur
pose and begged to be allowed to go
for my cuse of amputating knives
with which, I explained, the opera
tion could be performed with greater
neatness and dispatch. He unlocked
the door at once, binding me over ito
secrecv and urinnL' me to lose, no time
in returumg. I drove home, report
ed the case to the authorities and
came back with assistance. He was
secured wHh great difficulty and sen

Two noblemen in the reigu of Maxi
milian II.- one a German, Uie other
a Spaniard who had each venderid
a great service to the emperor, ask
ed the hand of his daughter iu mar
riage. : Maximilian said lhat, as he
esteemed them both alike, it was im
possible to choose between them, und
therefore their own prowes must
decide it; but, being unwilling to risk
the loss of cither by engaging thctn
in deadly combat, he ordered a large
sack brought und declared that he
who should put his rival into it should
have his fair Helena. And this whim
sical combat wu actually pot-formed
in the presence of the imperial court
and lasted an hour. The unhappy
Spanish nobleman was first overcome,
and the German succeeded in envelop
ing him in the sack, took him upon

A Soldier's Strange Death.
I find the following singular in
cident in the old Atlanta Iinelligenc
er: "After the fight near Drewry's
bluff on Monday last a surgeon who
was searching the field for the wound
ed, that he might adminsler to their
need, observed a man in a kneeling
position, with his gun to his shoulder
pointed to tne front, his left eye
closed and having all the appearance
of life. Upon rxnmination ho was
found to be dead, a ba'l having pus
ed through his brain at the moment
when, resting on his left kne.', lie had
taken sight at the foe. It is very
remarkable that, so rigid was the
corpse, some force was required to
remove the guii from his grasp. He
proved to be a member ot the Twenty
ninth Viruinia rf eimentof infantry.
