About a week ago we received
some exceedingly handsome Shoes

from S. Francisco, but direct from
the East. This enables us to sell
them cheaper than any'other store
on Maui. Ask for a pair of Men's
soft, elegant Romcos. They will
fit you like a glove. And our snug,
comfortable Men's Embroidered
Slippers are nice to slip on when

MAU! NO KA Ol.
The cup for which wc have for
years fought, and, lintil now, with
out success, will now come to Maui
and stay here until a good enough
aggregation of players is1 able to
take it away again.
The first game played August
14th was won by Maui 8 to 3i.
The game was swift and excit
ing, but was Maui's from the start.
Every Maui man played his
position. It was team play that
won, team play and the unselfish
spirit which leads one to forego
making a spectacular stroke him
self when the game requires him
to ride off an opponent and let an
other of his team mates make the
Oahu made a plucky fight, but
Dillingham and Shingle were pre
tty well ridden out of tho game by
Maui. Dr. Baldwin suffered from
a blinding headache but played
gamely. John Fleming was re
ported to have been injured by a
runaway horse before tho contest.
His ga.me was slightly off during
the first two periods, and the Oahu
Captain requested that he be per
mitted to enter a substitute, which
may be done, under the rule, only
when a player is seriously hurt.
The Maui Captain, not believing
that Fleming was seriously hurt,
at first refused to concede the
point, but immediately after agreed
that a substitute might be entered.
Captain Dillingham, how.ever, con
cluded to make no change. It was
not true, as stated by tho Honolu
lu papers, that tho Maui Captain
refuspd to permit a change. That
Fleming was not seriously injured
was shown in his playing one ot
tho best games for his side in the
last two periods.
In tho last period tho Maui team,
feeling sure of success, concluded
to save their best mounts for the
second and decisive game. They
accordingly used inferior ponies,

Tho Second Game: 'U' n 17 .
Both teams went into this game
for blood. Tho play was fast and
furious, and, until the last period,

sides did himself credit. Superior
team play and endurance, however,
triumphed. In tho last period
