Secretary Wood Sends Out
That the Promotion Committor is
meeting with excellent success in its
endenvor to promote travel to Mnui
and Kauai is evitleneed ly the fid
lowing communication, "part f a
letter addressed to the Promotion
Committee by Secretary II. P.
."It is very gratifying to bo able
to state that our efforts to turn
travel to Maui are meeting with
much encouragement.' 190!) will
undoubtedly show a largely increas
ed numl)cr of visitors to Haleakala
and Iao Valley over previous years.
This result has lx'cii made possible
by the Maui people themselves who
have imported automobiles, improv
ed their hotels, thus enabling us to
say that transportation on the Twin
Island is cheap and hotel accom
modation good. ,
Of these facts, the traveler must
lie assured and now that Kauai is
offering a splendid automobile ser
vice covering all parts of the Island
at reasonable rates and with the as-
, surance,that the traveler will find
' good hotel accommodation at The
Deverill Hotel, Hanalei, also at The
Fairviow Hotel, Lihue, and at Wai
mea, the three vantage points on
From this on, I Ix-lieve that travel
- to thy Garden Island will -.rapidly
increase. Kauai should have a large
modem tourist hotel at Hanalei
which is certainly one of the most
beautiful bathing lieaohe in the
world, and now that the tide of
. travel has at last turned to Hawaii,
isuch a place, if well advertised and
r properly conducted, would, I feel
assured, prove a paying investment.
During the summer season a hotel
with accommodations for fifty or
more guests could le kept constantly
filled with our own people.
Use of Poisonous Gas
to Destroy Insects.
It is now more than twenty
years since the first attempts were
made to destroy cale insects on
fruit trees by meaf".s of a poisonous
gas. The gas used is known as
hydrocyanic acid gas, and it is ex
tremely poisonous to human beings
and domestic animals as well as to
, insects. This method has gradual
ly increased in popularity until it
has largely displaced all others in
tho orange and lemon orchards of
In order to use the gas effective'
. ly the tree a covered with a tent.
A small quantity of sulphuric acid
is dissolved in a email quantity of
. water in a jar which is placed on
the ground in tho tent. The proper
amount of potassium cyan id is
weighed out, carried into the tent
by the operator and dropped into
the jar, after which he gets out
quickly, closing the tent after him.
The gas forms very quickly, .- rises,
and fills the tent, destroying all or
. , most of the scale insects within an
. hour.i .The tent is then taken
. down and placed over another tree.
In the use of this gas there have
been a variety of methods employ
ed, much variation in the amount
of chemicals used, and much dif
ference in the results secured. In
order to determine the most satis
factory methods and proportions
of chemicals, the U. S. Department
of Agriculture sent out an expert
fumigator to the Pacific coast to
conduct a series of experiments
with hydrocyanic acid gas. The
first report on this work has just
been, published in a bulletin en
'titled ''Fumigation - Investigations
in California.'. By an extensive
series of experiments with trees of
different sizes with different pro
portions if cvanid, sulphuric acid
and water, and fumigation at dif
ferent seasons, the experimenter
has determined the rcost economi -
Attention Called lo Prayer in
Liturgy of Edward.
nESTOIlATION TO PRAYER BOOK.
In the House of Commons on
the 1st ult., John Bnn asked the
Prime Minister "whether hi9 at
tention had been directed to a
prayer in the liturgy of Edward
VI. (Parker Society. Vol. XIX
page 458) dealing with the equit
able disposition of land within the
country; and whether he would
consider the advisability of issuing
the letters of Business to Convoca
tion, recommending the restoration
of this supplication to the revised
edition of the Hook."
The following is the remarkable
and beautiful payer, to which the
question refers. It was probably
composed by Archbishop Cranmer.
The earth is Thine. O Lord, and
all that is contained therein; not
withstanding Thou hast given the
possession thereof unto the children
of men, to pass over the time of
their short pilgrimaje in this vale
of misery; We heartily pray 1 bee
to send Thy Holy Spirit into. the
learts of them that possess the
grounds, pastures, and dwelling
places of the earth, that they, re
membering themselves to be .Thy
tenants, may not rack and stretch
out the rents of their houses and
lands', nor yet take unreasonable
fines and incomes after the manner
of covetous worldlings, but so let
them out to others that the in
habitants thereof may both be able
to pay the rents, and also honestly
to live, to nourish their families,
and to relieve the poor.
Give them grace. also to consider
that they are but strangers and
pilgrims in this world, haung here
no dwelling place, but seeking one
to come; that they, remembering
the short continuance of their life,
be content with that that is suffi
cient, and not join house to house

poverishment of others, hut so be

their tenements, Hands and pastures
that after this life they may be re

himself by thanking the questioner
for drawing attention to the sub

Eyes Are Dimmed When Miss
Kaai Sang "AJoha."
When the clear, sympathetic
voice of Miss Koala Kaai, accom
panied by the Hawaiian orchestra,
sang the tuneful melodies of the is
islands, tears dimmed the eyes of
the girls in the pineapple booth at
the Hawaiian building yesterday,
and they had their first, touch of
homesickness. Miss Kaai's voice
is as clear as the notes of a flute,
and has a sympathetic quality that
causes a tightening in the throats of
her hearers. When she sings the
lighter pieces there is a swing and a
lilt to the music that brings up
visions of the ball room, with the
measured boat of dancing foot.
Tho Hawaiian girls loft Honolulu
a little more than throe weeks ago,
and while they are delighted witli
the exposition anil with the thous
ands of kindly strangers who visit
the Hawaiian building daily, the
graceful subtle melodies of the sing
ers bring thoughts of home ami the
sunny islands. One song, which
was composed by Earnest Kaai lead-
r of the orchestra and uncle of the
young soprano, was particularly
affecting to the Hawaiian girls.
The linos of the chorus are these:
"Aloha, Aloha, I love. you.
Hawaii, my queen of the sea.
Those fairy isles, where nature
Are dearer than Eden to me.
Though far, far away I may wander
My thoughts, where'er I roam,
Of you ever grow fonder,
Blessed land which my, heart calls
Asked if they wished to go back
home, the girls protested that they
The visit to the. exposition is a
delightful experience," said one
young woman. . We would not
have our parents think wo are homo-
sick and unhappy, because we are
not. I suppose it is foolish to shed
tears when we hoar homo songs, but
it is no sign that we wish to go
back; at least not until tho exposi
tion is over. Anyway, Miss Kaai has
a wounderfully sweet voice, and I
lave no doubt that wore she singing
in Alaska there would be big-strong
men whoso eyes would fill .villi tears
when they thought of Seattle.
'I do not sec how one could be
homesick long among so many kind
ly people as you have hero. Doubt-!
less it is the same everywhere, but
at tho exposition everylsidy. seems
to be having a good time and out
for a play spell. When they ask us
alout theHslands we tell I hem bo
cause we love the islands and wo
want them to know all alxmt them.
'If the Hawaiian exhibit makes
a million or two million jmtsous ac
quainted with our pineapples and
our other fruits, the work will Im- a
success. . That is the reason for the
pineapple booth to give the. people
au opportunity to taste the fruit
from the islands. We Uliove that
when they do know our fruit the
welfare of the islands will lx assur
ed, because a wider market will In
opened. That is the serious part of
the work. ' The singing and the
orchestra music is to show a feature
of Hawaii that has 1hoii praised else
where and which apis ars to please
tho visitors to the. exposition."

' Hurt on
Oakland, June 1!). Her (irt tit
tempt to steer an automobile that
she had bought, proved disastrous
to Mis Mildred Homer at 12:H
First avenue, a member of a
wealthy Hawaiian family, as she
was speeding homo through East
Oakland along East Fourteenth
street. She ran the machine into
a telegraph pole and herself, hrr
friend, Miss Isla Doty of l('?"i
Twelfth street, and the chauffeur,
John Berry c.f (586 Twenty-fourth
street, were thrown out.
Miss Homer is seriously hurt.
Her skull is probably fractured;
her nose is broken, her foot is
broken, and she sustained besides
many severe bruises about the
body. Miss Doty escaped with a
cut lip and a badly bruised body.
Berry's shoulder blade wos broken.
The automobile was a new one,
bought yesterday by Miss Horner
who is an heiress in her own right,
only 19 years of ago.. Her com
pan ion. Miss Doty, is 20. Doth,
are students at the Oakland high
school. After Miss Horner had
bought the machine she wanted to
be taught how to run it. Berry
who is employed by the automo
bile agency that sold the car, was
told to g along with the girls and
teach them. All last evening the
automobile was run along the roods
outside of Oakland, until shortly
after midnight, the party - started
Miss Homer had taken several
lessons in the meantime, and she"'
felt confident that she could Meer
the machine properly. According
ly she took the whel. All went
well until Twentv-third avenue
and East Fourteenth street was
reached, when the accident occurr
ed. Just how it happened is in
doubt. Miss Horner says that the
steering gear broke, and that It
wis not her fault. The automobile
crashed into a telephone pole near
the curb. The entire party was
thrown to the pavement. Bolh
women were rendered unconscious.
Bystanders rinhed them to the
receiving hospital, where Dr.rA. C.
Smith attended them. Both girls
were restored to consciousness and
Miss Horner was taken to Faoiohi
hospital for further treatment. A
pathetic incident of the accident
was that her mother was already a
patient at the hopital, and the pair
were laid side by side there. Miss
Homer is expected to recover un
less further complications set in.
- Miss Doty arrived h-re from Ho
nolulu o complete her education.
She lives with her mother and
stepfather, Edward L. Horner,
whose name she has adopted.
