THE BAZAAR SUCCESS.
The bazaar, held under the
auspices of the Ladies' Guild of the
Church of the Good Shepcrd last
Saturday evening, in tho Knights
of Pythias hall was a decided
success, both financially and social-
It was the largest affair ever
undertaken by the ladies of tho
Guild, and nil deseved great credit
for their efforts. Tho hall was
brilliantly lighted for the first time,
by the new acetylene gas plant,
recently installed, displaying the
many pretty articles to the best
Tho fancy work was in charge of
Mrs. McKay and Mrs. Austin,
assisted bv Misses Wrenn and
M. Cummings, whore tho choicest
of embroidery and handwork also
articles done in water-color, were
displayed. Tho ladies in charge
were kept busy filling orders for
buyers who found it difficult to
make selections among the many
The flower booth, presided over
by Madams Jackson, Hart, Weight
and Kepoikai, was most gorgeous
in its display of paper flowers and
lies, that were so natunl as to
deceive many. Great was the de
mand made upon these ladies, and
had they possessed twice as many,
all would havo been sold.
Tho candy booth was artistically
draped with green bunting. Mrs.
Copeland and Mrs. Williams meot-
ed out tho sweets until all was gone.
The home . made candy was in
great demand and tho liberal sup
ply was soon exhausted. Here also
tho littlo Brownies perforned feats
of gymnastics, making mirth for
the little ones.
Those who wished to quench their
thirst, found an ample supply of
lemonado and delicious fruit juice,
within a bower of green, liborally
dispensed bj Mrs, Davis, Mrs.
Wadsworth, and Miss Smith.
In ordor that tho children might
not bo forgotten. Mrs. Nicholson
arid Mrs. Wrenn, in a booth of
nautical flags, provided rods for
tno children to fish with, and judg
ing irom tho noise, all were de-
flighted with their catch. This was
an attractive corner, and was pa
tronized by the grown ups, as well
as tho children, and the managers
had cause to regret they had not
stocked their pond moro generously.

This was a busy department. .The

ladies of the guild, were especially
nice, and crowds were waiting for
tables to bo vacated, that thoy
might take their turn.

and Miss Makee, brought forth an
enthusiastic encore. Miss Dowsett's
violin solo, was especially enjoyed,
she proved hersolf to bo a thorough
master of her instrument. That
Mr. Muller of Kahului in his comic
songs, won the approval of his
hearers; was manifest by tho hearty
encore, to which he generously
responded. Mr. Geo. Schraeder
was his accompanist. The musical
program was concluded with a selec
tion by the Haleakala male quar
tette, composed of Messrs. D. B.
Murdock,Win?Ault,TI. W. Baldwin
and B. V. Bazata. This was the
first appearance of this quartette
in Wailuku, and thoy added much
to the already attractive program.

CANE LOADERS AT PUUNENE.
F. Ii. Webster of the firm of
Wilson and Webster Cane Loader
Co. of Honolulu is at Puunene
installing three cane loaders for
tho II. a k S. Co.
Thoeo loaders aro reported to bo
tho most successful cane loaders in
use and promuo to be a great labor
saving devico. On JSwa three of
those machines are in successful
operation and it has been demon
strated by practical operations
that thoy are as represented.
Tho loader is built with an open
eonter fo that while it stands across
tho track, a car loaded with cane
can pass through it.
Cane loading by hand is one of
the hardest pieces of work on the
plantation, tho ground is necessari
ly rough, the enno crooked and
hard to carry. Tho plunks used
to got up on tho load arc often
slippery and accidonts frequently
If the mechanical loader is a
success it will bo welcomed by tho
laborers and plantations alilcos
CHRISTIE BREAKS JAIL.
Last weok wo noted the fact
that W. II. Christio who attempted
to commit suicide some days ago
at the Maui Hotel was again acting
strungoly and would probably bo
taken into custody acain.
The police made diligent search
for him and were rowarded on
Saturday by finding the unfortun
ate man at Sprcckelsville Hospital
whore he had gone for protection
from his mythical enemies.
He was brought to Wailuku
Jail and detained there until Mon
day evoning. About 7 o'clock 'he
broke jail and jumped from the
second story head first to the
ground below. A distance of a
bout twenty-five feet. In falling
ho must havo struck a window
casing below which turned him
over so that ho fell on his feet
breaking the bono of one of his legs
just abovo tho ankle.
He succeeded in hiding but was
soon captured in tho back yard of
James T. Taylor. There seoms to
bo no question that ho is insane
and he will probably bo committed
to insano asylum this week.
Later; On examination ho was
adjudged insane and committed to
RUBBER IN PUNA.
The cultivation of rubber on this
island has been, in a measure, "in
tho air," until now Roderick Ross
has demonstrated the adaptability
of Puna soil to the cultivation of
rubbor trees of the Ceara family.
Some years ago Mr. Koss pur
chased a thousand seeds and plant
ed them on the Crane plantation
about a mile from his dwelling. For
some reason tho seed did not all
germinate and only 200 sprouted.
As time passed several grew to a
hoight of several feet. A few of these
wore to bo transplanted but a
Japanese labor made a mistake in
attempting to move all of the trees
instead of tho few strong'onos.
This was soyen yoars'ago and
photographs of the trees shown by
Mr. Ross illustrated some excellent
specimens. One of theso ho tapped
a short time ago, the first tap, by
tho way, with tho result that four
ounces of a lino quality of rubber
was obtained. This particular tree
has a girth of thirty.six inches and
has a strong healthy growth The
sample of rubber shown was pro
duced by primitive means and
would no doubt bo vastly improved
if the modem methods of treating
the sap wero at hand.
In Ceylon tho trees aro tapped
every month during eight months
in the year and at the present price
of rubber, 0s. 9d. a pound in Lon
don, the returns are highly satis
factory. The trees may be planted
twenty feet apart, though there is
one on the Ross place that has a
sproad of eighty feet. The trees
may be tapped any time after four
years from planting and they fur
nish slips for planting a grove if it
It is tho intention of Mr. Ross to
plant more of the cuttings and ox
tend the operations if the plan has
the endorsement of Mr. Crane. He
