WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T., SATURDAY. MARCH 2G, I9J0
Ward Walker and Douglas
Marshall Make the Top.
When Wiiiluku townsmen saw
Ward Walker and Douglas Mar
shall start off on horseback last Sat
urday morning, they never dream
ed that these two young men would
attempt the most daring feat of the
last five, years of Maui history. Such
a feat they did attempt, however,
and brought back glowing accounts
'of their success in climbing the
The Needle as every Mauiite
knows is a sheer piece of rock rising
1,500 feet above the bed of the Iao
stream, so sharp and precipitous on
the road side that it was properly
named "The Needle." As the trav
eller approaches this interesting
spur of the mountain, for such it is,
a broken fragment of the mass of
rock behind and above it, the
wonder is that it can ever be
climbed. The only possible approach
is from the mountain side of the
Needle, where a narrow neck of
land extends downward and also
mountain ward, and here it is possi
ble by carefully planned steps in
ascent to reach the top. Here .Mar
shall and Walker made the ascent,
and at the top found the bottle that
the last expert climbers of Maui had
left there. Five years ago, Mr. C
B. Wells' two children, Miss Laura
Wells and Ward Wells, and their
friend, Fred. W. MeGraw made the
Needle and left their names on a
piece of paper in a pickle bottle.
The victors of last week wrote their
names on the paper and turned the,
bottle s that rain could not get
inside. We would suggest that the
next party take up a large bottle
with a tight cock, and a large piece
of paper, so that future aspirants
for the top of Maui's Needle may
have plenty of room to inscribe their
names. We ought to have a roll of
honor for those who succeed in
reaching the top, or a society called
"The Knights of Iao," as there
used to be the society known las
"The Knights of Ilonomanu," to
which all those belonged, who had
mado the formerly dangerous East
Maui trail through the valley that
gave its name to the once famous
Large Gathering at Home of
Mr. and Mrs.W. S. Nicoll.
Last Friday evening, the 18th,
the regular monthly meeting of the
Makawao Literary Society took place
at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W.
S. Nicoll of Ilamakuapoko. The
attendance was unusually large and
the following program was received
with many encores:
1. Angelus solo.
2. Duet (piano and mandolin),
Mr. and Miss Bisgard.
Vocal solo, Miss Balcom.
Monologue, Miss Ellen linker.
Mrs. II. A. Baldwin.
A farce, entitled, "A Happy
Couple," in which Mr. and Mrs. G.
G. White gave much pleasure to the
audience by their clever portrayal
of the characters of Mr. and Mrs.
Miss llaker did somo pleasing
dramatic work in her monologue in
which a real telephone and a ficti
tious mouse played prominent parts.

be used later if necessary and we
