The Mail from Kula.
1 lb' was seedy looking. He eatne
from the direction of Kula. Ho was
travel stained and dusty, witii hat,
whiskers and clothes warped anil
curled and sun bleached. A hungry
look was in his eyes, and the most
striking feature of his face, massive
jaws, grimly set.
An amazed look had overspread
his features-as our scribe hailed him
for a chat.
The driver of the street sprinkler
hud pulled up by the hydrant on
High St. and had turned on a
limpid, sparkling two-iilch stream.
He saw the news hunger look in
the face of our scribe and the fellow
feeling which makes the world kin
awoke in him and he spoke.
"Do they let yuh take a whole
barl full o' water hum in this'ere
Our scribe assured him that such
a thing was not improbable.
"Why that's tine! Over thar"
and he jerked a soiled thumb to
wards Kula "we don't hev no sich
luckl No sir! Can't take hum
more'n a bucket a time an' yuh hev
to wait a long long time to git it,
an' ef yuli don't, yuh can't git no
water. Yes sir, can't git no water!"
"You sure have bard luck over
there, friend," said our scribe.
"Hard luck aint no name for it.
It's wuss'n hard luck! When yuh
hev to miss yer thirst and miss your
water, and let the ole woman an'
the kids hev just two .table spoons
o' water each twice a day an' that's
all they hev to drink day in an'
day out for months an months, it's
wuss'n hard luck, yes sir!
"Why I've come all the way
down for a good square drink, yes
sir, to get a good square five linger
ed drink, can't get it up the ole cow
pasture up thar! "
Our scribe expressed his sympa
thy and wondered,' whilst the man
from Kula unbosomed himself of
Js that ere the kind o' water
pipes yuh hev in this'ere place?"
was the next question.
Our scribe replied it was,.
"Wal, a bunch o' republican
fellers tol' lis they'd giv us some water
pipes last 'lection, u we vote for
em, but we didn't know them kind
' pipes yuh hev here, plenty water
in 'cm alright. We got a republican
water pipe up thar now, one end of
it way to hell and gone up the
mountain, an' about a cup full o'
water run out our end a minit!
Manys tho nights an' nianys the
days I've sat by it a whole day or a
whole night to git a bucket d' water,
in' I done it some time when there
lint no water for the kids to drink
to hum, yes sir. We're sick o'
them kind o' republican water
pipes. When the bunch o' repub
licans cum round to trade for our
vote and tol u'S they'd giv us some
more water pipes for our votes, I
sized'em up good, sez I, we don't
want no water pipes, we wauls
water! We took their names down.
Wo warnt going to vote for any
o'em by mistake, sure!
"Now the diniicrat fellers had
more sense; They cum round after
the republican bunch had gone an
tol' us ef we trade our votes for 'em
so 's to elect 'em, they'd giv us
barls an barls o' water! Now J call
that business like, good horse sense,
hev' bullock teams haul us water
by the bjirls, an' sure pop we voted
for the dimicrats and water barls,
but too many fools out here an' the
diniicrat fellers all got 21$. Nixy.
"Pay, next time send up bright
republican fellers, ef you got any,
thet can tell us something 'bout
them stand up pipes, thets so full
o' water yuh hev to use a jnonkey
wrench to shut it off, sich as I seen
over thar an' will sure vote for 'em.
Why she runs at the .muzzle enough
to fill a barl 'fore yuh can say Jack
Robinson! Them kind o' pipes
alright, none o' them lie-down
spindle things sich as wo hev up
thar for. me!"
Having gotten enough material
our scribe proceeded to break away
front the seedy stranger, when he
was arrested by an ear splitting yell.
"Hey thar, yuh d d fool; hey!
yuh losing yer wator,.hey th'ar!"
Tho driver had turned the lever
and water was spattering on the
macadam from the sprinkler, hence
the excitement of the man from
Our scribe diligently explained to
hhn the spilling of water on the
roadways of Wailuku was for the
lawfu'll purpose of keeping down
"Wal, by gum, if there aint the
dangest lot of shitless cusses a-living
in this 'ere town! Why don't yuh
save your water as we tlo in Kula?
Store em in tanks, (ill your barls
with it, store 'em in cisterns, when
it's plenty. So by m by, yuh, wonjt
hev to spank the kids 'when they
cry for water an there ain't any to
give 'cm. Why I baint tasted a
boiled potato for a year, its roast
potato or fried potatoes ever since.
No water to mix poi for the, ole'
woman. She has to eat hard poi;
No boiled grub of any kind, don't
know how a plate o' soup looks like
"An' eeptin for tea and codec,
water's too precious to be boiled to
notion over a fire. Yes, sir; in
Kula, we've got things down fine,
air we 'preeialo water.
"Why when Friday went up fo
I'olypoly spring horseback an' the
next one after him reported water
lower by half an inch than it should
be, we all suspicioncd him of water
ing his horse, an I wanted then an'
there to run him out o' -the place.
But my neighbors got the idea from
souk." fool lawyer about heving clar
evidence an' all sich' nonsense, so
nothing doing. Jint we suspjeioned
him and he's been watched ev
An here yuh danged fools, spill
good water in the road an yuh call
it a good job. Shucks! we tind any
mail witn tliem Kind o' tool idee up
in Kula, his goose' d be cooked, an
we'll run him out o' there quiekcr'n
lightning. Don't want 'cm thar,
all our folks hev sense, an some
sich as you hev down here will get
what's comiiig to 'em sooner 'n they
expect, and your water 'H run out,
and yuh '11 be all lired" dry, dry,
dry as an old dead Initio! "
Our scribe realized he was nutty
and cracked, and unit ins lale was
only a chapter of delirium. And,
with pity in his heart for the drouth
smitten stranger, left him; and
when be peered out again saw him
going on in town towards the Maui
Drug Store waving his arms and
taking away like a lawyer after an'
unwilling witness, and wondered if
between his ravings and thirst hun
ger he was still bent on getting a
good square, five fingered drink!

Mr. E. V. Wilcox .of the Federal
Agricultural Department has writ
ten the Company a letter urging
tho Company to send samples of
its wines and brandy for oxhibU
tion to the Seattle exposition the
next year assuring tho Company of
the good quality of its product so
much so that it could be placed a
longside that of older California
wineries with a fair expectation of
winning a medal and a secondi if
not, a first prize, on tho quality of
So much confidence has been
felt in the permanence of this new
Maui industry that portions of the
adjoining Ulumalu cattle pasturo
lands aro being cleared and plant
ed to grapes by newcomers.
The stock of tho Kaupakalua
winery is held principally in
small blocks by tho grape growore
themselves, making it more of a
cooperative industry than other
wise, and also, by tho Maui busi
ness people. The holdings range
from a single sharo to about fifty
shares apiece, but like all new in
dustries it has not yet paid any
dividends, and tho stockholders
seem more content in finding in it
a purchaser for their grapes rather
than in looking for dividends.
Tho next year's crop is estimat
ed at 75,000 gallons, an estimate
not impossible of realization in
view of tho percentage of increase
shown for this year's crop.
