Lahaina does not intend to bo
outdone by the metropolis, and is
also demanding the attention of the
health authorities. Both the Coun
ty health inspector and Dr. Shep
herd, of Honolulu, have been here

know him to learn, that Mr. J. E.
Kennedy, lale of the Pioneer mill,

rainy district will have to paddle

Assemblyman Brennan, author
of New York's Brennan cold-storage
law, said tho other day:
"A recent examination of the
cold-storage plants in Now York
City showed that in twelve storago
houses alone there were stored
7,300,000 pounds of poultry and
meat, 4,500,000 pounds of fish,

"This food should be labeled as
what it is. It shouldn't be sold to

food, and, though it looks alright,
its taste is all wrong except to such
people as aro blessed with the palate
of Jim Jimison.
"Jim Jimison," Mr. Brennan ex
plained, "was a hard drinker up
Ithaca way. One evening Jim stop

Jim, 'good, wannin' stuff. It had
one fault. Every time I coughed it

A Chicago man who started one
day last week to attend a wedding,
went astray and got into a house
where a funeral was being held. He
was a little late, and was conducted
through a rather dark hall into a

this is a most solemn occasion, but
let us try to look upon the more
hopeful side. It may all be for tho

At shortstop Jack Barry so far
over-shadowed Fletcher that it leaves
no argument of comparison. Ho is
reported as tho poorest shortstop
