Sugar, todav is 3.675 in

submitted sometime ago. Taking
past years-as an example, figured

' decline will probably continue until
about the 20th of February. In

.ThV Bale of--one entire Cuban crop

Two Mornm EMers Atten.pt to Cress
Gulch, die Is Lost.
Wednesday morning.two Mormon
Elders, named McMnsters and
Curtman set' out on mules from Ki-
pahulu to go to Kaupo, The trail
was bad after tho heavy rains, and
in many places was almost impassi
ble. They mado their way along
slowly until Alelelo gulch was to be
crossed. A torrent of water was
rushing through the gulch. Being
malihinis in that region, and not
realizing the danger Curtman start
ed his mule across to the Kaupo
side. After he had gone a short
distance, to the horror of McMas
ters; Curtman'a mule was seen to
loose its footing, and almost before
he realized it, man and mule were
being rushed over a, precipice about
300 feet high. From the place where
the accident happened to the open
sea is about one mile. McMastcrs
hastened back to Kipahulu and no
tified the police, and they have beeii
searching for some trace of the
body, but without .success up to the
time of our going to press.
Tho trousers "worn by Curtman
have been recovered, together with
his watch which was in the trousers
pocket. Tho body of the mule can
be seen floating ,in tho pool, whh

OTHER THAN MAU.
Oahu stock has gotio up from
$25.50 bid and $25.75 asked to
$26,125 bid and $26.25 asked.
This stock lias been in such heavy
demand that a rumor of "buying
hui," has been circulated. This
rumor ia-perhaps unfounded. Ewa
is probably a shade weaker thaji
last Wednesday, it being $27.oQ
bid and $28 asked on the latter and
$27.50 bid and $27.75 asked today.

almost invariably follows in the
wake of diphtheria. Pratt seems-to
feel that the little scare despite its
temporary inconveniences has been
a blessing to Maui in disguise, for

All Disease Germs to be Driven From
A new substance has just. been
brought into existence that will
drive from the human body all
germs of every known disease.
This quality was discovered by acci
dent by Professor Eitner, in experi
menting with tho famous GOG, a
specific which Professor Paul
Ehrlich of Frankfort presented early
last year to medical science.
"In my opinion it is the most
wonderful Christmas present ever
given the people of the world."'
.Thus spoke Dr.. Samuel W. Lam
bert, dean of the College of Physr-
cians and Surgeons of New York,
noted physician and leader in Lis
He seemed enthusiastic over tho
great lind that, he himself and
others of the medical fraternity
lThe greatest discovery in medi-
citio announced-ih 1910, "continued
Dr. Lambert, "was GOG. From it
came the new remedy jU3t an
nounced to the medical profession.
Only a paragraph ho.s appeared
so far in regard, tb it.
"Tho Journal of the American
Medical Association, in; the issue of
December 17th, stated, after refer
ring to disturbances in the body of
tlio patient after tho use. of 606.
Eitner never used methyl al
cohol, so that the disturbances can
not be explained in this'way. He
used for the injection a mixture of
what was left in two tubes of1 the
GOG, tho rest .of the contents of the
vial having been' used in another
" 'The tips of the" tubes were
fused again to protect tho remain
ing contents, and he thinks that
tho heatf applied in the fusing must
have modified the drug within in
sqino way to render' it 111010 toxic.
" 'Experiments on animals with
GOG after it had- been heated seem
fro confirm this assumption of a
toxic modification of the drug under
tho influence of heat.'
"This is a new idea," continued
Dr. Lambert. "It means so much
that I fear it will sound exagger
ated. You can readily understand
what the driving of disease germs
from tho human body means."' It
is, as I have said, tho greatest
thing in the line of medical research
that has been brought to usage and
overshadows tho other wonder,
