playing togi thea for the past month.
The other team was composed of
Wailuku, Waikap'u and Honolulu
players, and was captained by Me-
deiros of Honolulu
Taking everything into considem
tion it was a good game, and those
who attended expressed their appre
ciation of the good plays made.
The regular Wailuku team was de
feated by a score of 4 to 6. The
defeat was the first this combination
has suffered, and it was due more
to a stroke of luck than any good
playing on the part of the opposing
In the last inning, Dutro, the
first man up made a clean hit, and
in starting to run to first turned his
ankle and dropped in his. tracks.
The three men following him. all
hit the ball hardx and scored two
runs, which with Dutro on the
bases would have been swelled to
three, with an excellent chance of
winning. It was not to be, how
ever. Perhaps the next time they
will do better.

We reproduce a letter which was
received last month from a Filipino
asking for a job. These letters are
not only humorous, but reflect the
character and understanding of
these little brown brothers.
