Seattle, June 28. John Ericsson,
inventor of the famous "cheese
box" Monitor, used a large block of
wood as a pillow on which to rest
his tired head after spending days
and nights in his study. The iden
tical block has been kept as an his
torial object and is to be seen among
other things in the "John Ericsson"
room in the Swedish building at the
As the visitor enters the room he
is almost startled to see seated at a
table at the further end the figure
of a man. So amazing is the like
ness of this wax figure to the
familiar jiortraits and pictures of
the inventor that the visitor uncon
sciously stops in reverancc before
going nearer. The table in the
room is the one from the study of
Ericsson and nearby is the old
fashioned "hair cushion" piano
stool which was used by the Inven
tor in place of a chair.
Ericsson had two tables in his
study one at which he worked on
bis plans and drawings, tho other
was used as a bed and with the
block of wood as a pillow.

The Season Is A Most
On Friday, July 20th, the great
mill of the Hawaiian Commercial
and Sugar Company ceased grind
ing for the season with a record of
which the management and those
connected with the plantation may
well feel proud.
Tho grinding season began on
November 20th. 1908. At. the close
of the season the mill had ground
870,308 87 tons of cane and had
bagged 52,725 tons of sugar.
William Searby is the Superin
tendent of the mill and to bis fore
sight and thorough preparation
when giving the nii'l its annual
overhauling is due the very satis
factory results of the milling of the
season. In this work Superinten
dent Searbv has been assisted bv
skilled workmen of the very best
class who should share the credit
A most remarkable record was
established bv the mill this season
that might well be the onvy of any
mill in the Territory. The percent
age of grinding time to the time, paid
for was 5)7.45 for the season while
the percentage of grinding for the
month of May to the time paid for
was !)9 52.
This very high average is the re
sult of almost perfect work on the
part of the mill forco and field and
From this it is evident that not
only was tho mill kept in good
working order and almost steadily
at work, but that the cane was cut
ahead of the mill and the loading
and hauling kept up to' such a
high standard that the time lost
by the mill for want of cane could
not have been much.

Sugar Company is the leading
plantation of the inlands and has
