It is the intention of Mr. Carey
to fit up a first class shop with
lathes and be in a position to re
pair any class of work that may be
demanded by the owners of auto
mobiles. It will be a most convenient
pl:o for owners of machines to
store their machines where they
may be cleaned each day and made
ready for instant use at any time
and as this will be done at a veiy
low figure it is believed many more
machines will soon be bought by
Wailuktms as it will cost about the
same to keep an automobile as it
does to keep a horse and buggy.
Mr. Carey has sent for a first
class man who will have charge of
the garage and will make all ne
cessary rcpairsof all machines need
ing the same.
The rapid increase in the number
of machines or. Maui justifies the
prediction that it will be but a short
time until all the work desired will
be secured by the new enterprise.

uladelplna, August 1. Persons
believe that a missionary has
more serious occupation than
singing hymns and kissing the
native babies would learn much from
a perusal of one of the letters of. the
Rev. Stacy L. Roberts, a young
Philadelphiap, who left a comfor
able home nnd opportunities for
quick advancement in the ministry
in thib country to join the little
band of fearless men who are spread
ing tho gospel in faraway Korea.
Mr. Roberts is a son of the Rev. Dr.
William Dayton Roberts, pastor of
Temple Presbyterian Church, and
following his marriage to' .Miss
Evelyn Miller, of Sussex, N. J., on
June 21, 1907, he sailed for the
Hermit Kingdom, accompanied by
his bride, on the Sth day of August.
The expenses of the young people in
the foreign field are paid by. the con
gregation of Temple Church.
A recent letter received by the
Rev. Dr. Roberts describes the ex
periences of the young missionary
in a Korean gambling den. Gainb

as it is in the United States but, as
in tho United States, gambling dens
Learning that one of his native
Christians, who had turned back

resorts, young Mr. Roberts boldly
determined to enter the place and
show tho man the error "of his ways,
which resolution lie. was careful lo

Child Washed Underground
Ellis Coke, a son of Hugh M. Coke
of the News, was playing with his
twin brother and tho eldest son of
Rev. Canon Ault just below theEnos
store in Wailuku Wednesday morn
ing when he and Ralph Ault tried
to get a coeoanut that came down'
tho underground flume at great
speed. At the point where' the
children were playing the flume is
open and a constant menace lo the
safety of the many children here.
The child lost his balance when
reaching for the nut and fell . head
first into the Hume. He was carried
instantly under the sidewalk and
down the underground flume that
is covered for a distance of over
three hundred and forty feet. Part
of the way the flume is underground
and very narrow. There was a
great rush of water at the time and
an. unusually full head of water.
The child instantly straightened out
and threw his arms over his head.
His playmates gave the alarm and
police officer John Fereira tore up
the planking above in the hope of
finding the lost child. He was join
ed by W. T. Robinson, Antone Do
Rego and others, but while they
weiv searching the child was washed
out below a distance of exactly three
hundred and fifty-two feet from
where lie fell in." His cries attract
ed Mrs. Rodrigues who sent Albert
Decker out to see what was the
trouble. He at once pulled the
child out of the flume. The child
was hadlyhruised about the fore
head. fin'outh and base of the head
andscratxhTjl up about the knees
l)iitto;the astonishment of all was
able to stand alone.
The flume is about ten by twelve
inches and has a uniform fall of six
per cent and as it was nearly full of
water at the tune none could see
how the child could possibly go all
of the distance he did at such great
speed without being either killed or
At one place in front of the ins
mark Stables a gate is in the' flume
and a three inch timber bars the
way. The Hume here is underground
and the gate is reached by a trap
door from above. How the child
could possibly pass this is a mystery.
The child is but five years old but
unusually strong and active. Two
hours after his experience he went
to lunch anil played about the lawn
all afternoon with other children.
This is not the first narrow escape
from drowning there but is the first
instance of a child being washed
L. L. McCandless was a witness
to the accident and after hearing of
the narrow" escapes of different
children at once ordered lumber and
employed a carpenter to cover the
flume where it is open.
