The Stingers Had Their Stings Ready,
and Did 3 Thriving Business. .
This is not a tale of the stingers
stung, but of tho stingers who
stung, and it was a peaceful Cath
olic brother who was responsible
for the stinging and possibly for tho
expletives of thoso who weiy stung.
Brother Louis. of tho Kalawao settle
ment on Molokai was a passenger on
the steamer Mikabala, when she left
Honolulu bound for Molokai and
Maui, on Tuesday of last week.
Half an hour before tho Reamer
was to sail Brother Louis went to
the wharf in n hack. Ho had a
ckago on tho seat beside him.
Having an umbrella- and. several
packages to handle, he turned the
big package over to a native boy.
Tho latter stumbled and tho lid fell
off. Tho package was a beehive.
The buzzers buzzed out into the
open and celebrated their freedom
by sundry digs at man and beast in
tho vicinity. There wero howls of
pain, while mules grunted, kicked
and stampeded, and the greater tho
confusion tho greater the intense
stingability of tho stingers. They
stung good and plenty. sFathcr
Valentino was in despair., ami he
finally telephoned to Brother James,
a bee expert, to hurry to tho "wharf
with his nmokc machine. The
brother arrived in duo time, got his
machine in' working order and grad
ually brought the buzzers back to
their homo. But tho hive did not
go to Molokai. Brother Louis had
had enough experience for one day,
and Brother James carried tho busy
little bees back to St. Louis College.
Painful Accident to

Mr. D.'II. Case has received word
from Mrs Case, who is visiting in
Honolulu, that their daughter Cleo
has met with a painful accident.

Miss Case got tho second finger of
her right hand caught in the iron
hinge ns it closed up. Tho hinge
acted on th6 finger after tho manner
of a dull pair of shears, and lacerted
thov finger quite badly. Tho nail
was torn off, and tho end of the
finger was completely severed hang
ing only by the skin on tho inside.
It is -thought possibly that with care
ful treatment, it can bo made to
grow on again without any perma
nent injury to tho hand.
