Florida For The Technical World Magaz'iie comments interest
Home Builder, ingly and instructively on the comparatively sudden
demand for land in southern Florida. It is held to lie due in part to the
fact that the turpentine kings are now ready to release their grasp on the
'territory. They have phtain from it all that they can In their special
line, and lands which they purchased at from 25 cents to SI an acre
" fhey are offering, in large tracts from $3 to $5 an acre. Of - nirsc, there
is the inevitable middleman who take up tracts of fror .HKX) to 100,000
acres, sulnlivides them, and sells them to the settl- . in small parcels at
a profit. But the land may le had now at a '.. price -lower, perhaps,
than it will ever Ins again ami this is also a leading factor in bringing
almut the present demand.
It is Veil that a warning has lcen sounded with regard to the danger
that lurks behind this movement. Southern Flori'1 1 offers undoubtedly
"Splendid opportunities to the orange grower av sub-tropical gardener.
But all southern Florida land is not fertile and investors and settlers
S, should know something in advance about toe character of the concerns
y or agencies they are dealing with. It will le wise on the part of the
" state of Florida if it shall at this time throw all the protection possible
around the intending settlers. Florida needs then and cannot afford U

Of Maui Aid Association
The Annual Meeting of the Maui
Aid Association was held on April
14th at the Baldwin National Bank
at Kahuhti. The reports -of the
Secretary, Treasurer, Financial
Committee were read ami placed on
file. The Treasurer's liooks for the
period from May 1st to Decern lier
31st were audited by Mr. D. C.
Lindsay, and showed total receipts
of $7,421.55. There was a balance
on hand at the end of the year of
8049.28, a sum that was largely in
the Savings Department for the re
pairs of church buildings.

fool who left giant yowdercapsaliout
in such a manner that children had
access to them. It apin-ars that a
ten year old Hawaiian boy, who says
he in hi turn got the cajis from
another ltoy, 'gave' the' caps to a six
year old Spanish Uy to play with.
The little Spaniard took his new
playthings to his home in the
Spanish camp at Amuula last Wed
.nesday evening, and he and his one
year old brother anmsed"ihemselves
with the caps, not dreaming that
they were playing with tleath in
their small hands.
The exact manner in which the
accident happened is still a mystery .
There was a fire in the stove in the
room in which the children were
playing right by the stove, but
whether the caps were exploded
through-the agency of the stove or
in some other manner is not known.
The'stove shows no sign of injury.
However, suddenly one of the
raps which was held in the hand of
the six year old !oy, exploded with,
the result that the child lost two
fingers and part of his thumb, and
also received a cut on his head. His
baby- brother was also cut on the
head. The jxdice liave in their jos-
scssion several other caps with which
these children had lcen playing,
and these caps show such signs of
rough handling that it is a wonder
that they did not explode. Hilo
