Commendable Effort to Fight the Great
" A Httto more than a year ago, the
Mnui County Board of Supervisors,
realizing that Pulmonary Tubercu
losis was increasing on tho Island
and that disease and death was
threatening every household, by its
extremely infectious nature, appro
priated funds Jor tho purposo of
erecting at least temporary buildings
for tho care of these unfortunates.
Accordingly a committee was ap
pointed for tho purposo of selecting
a site and arranging other matters
pertaining to tho institution. A
4sito was- selected at Kcpkca, Kula,
at an elevation of some three to four
thousand feet and at a point where
there is but littlo dust.
This area is acknowledged by all
to bo an ideal climate for tho caro
and treatment of Pulmonary Tuber
culosis. The Territorial Board of
Health also appreciated our efforts
and appropriated funds to help us,
and recently the Board of Super
visors appropriated funds for the
purposo of ercctiiig a ward or hos
pital building, and that is now in
course of construction. This build
ing will cost almost four and a half
thousand dollars, but there is great
need of other improvements imme
diately. Wo can scarcely go through
the Winter season without another
building or cottage on the grounds,
besides there will bo much fencing
to do and other improvements quite
necessary to the existence of the
Tho Farm, which has been given
us by the Territory, should be
stocked that it may become partially
self-sustaining. Several of the ranch
es, as well as individuals, have
agreed to contribute a number of
good milk cows for tho purposo,
and now tho Managing Committee,
propose to raise by subscription, an
amount as nearly as possible, equal
to the amount appropriated by the
Board of Supervisors. This money
to be used for the erection of anoth
er cottage or building, for fencing
and other much needed improve
Subscription papers will be found
in tho various Banks of Maui
and at tho office of the Maui News,
for this purposo. Let every citizen of
Maui put his shoulder to tho wheel
and help to push this proposition
along as rapidly as possible.
Since tho institution was estab
lished, a littlo more than a year
ugo, it has been crowded to capa
city and much good has been dono;
not only to the sick ones, but to
their families and communiics, by
removing from their midst tho most
fruitful sourco of infection. One
patient who was formerly very sick
with Tuberculosis, has apparently
completely recovered, and a mun
ber of others aro improving.
Accident at Maliko.
A nativo boy, named Hokano,
who was working in tho road gang
at Maliko, and whoso duty it was
to feed tho mules camo very near
being killed ono morning this week.
He and another boy had fed tho
.mules, and were taking them to tho
work on tho road. Tho boy at
tempted to get on tho ihulo's back,
when tho animal becamo frightened
and ran away. Tho boy fell off
and was dragged about ono quarter
of a mile. Ho is now at the Paia
hospital in a much battered condi
Calculated te be a Safeguard Against
From two Eastern colleges, Vassar
and Swarthmorc, como announce
ments by the proud principals that
none of their graduates over has
figured in a divorce suit. And
from thoTJniversity of Washington
at Seattle is heard the Pacific Coast's
answering cry that, tho divorce
court matter aside, tho West has
physically tho most perfect college
girl in the world, and henco the
best wife material.
It" certainly is pleasant to know
that our girls' colleges aro turning
out graduates calculated to make so
many homes happy. But that this
is the case is a fact not particularly
difficult to explain. In the first
placo, the girl graduate is generally
out of her teens before she leaves
school and so It is less likely to
marry carelessly than some of her
younger sisters. It is the hastily
contracted marriages of persons not
old enough to make a proper discri
mination that most frequently lead
to the divorce courts.
Still another reason for tho girl
graduate's comparative immunity
from divorce is tlio fact thatlier
college education has given her a
sort of self-sufficiency, by which she
is able to interest herself at home
in case she should find other inter
ests there lacking.
Unless there is a community of
interest between a man and wife
married life has a tendency to be
come monotonous. In this fact lies
an explanation of much df the dis
satisfaction which some men feel
with, their wives when tho latter
seem too much engrossed with tho
trivialities of life, with its small
gossip and its unimportant details
liut tno woman wno nas gono
through college has had opportuni
ties to broaden her range of vision
and can carry tho mental joust with
her husband beyond tho small tnlk
of the tea tables.
Tho college woman, ioo, can
draw on interests outsid3 of tho
homo to keep her from ennui and
it is ennui in some form or other
that is a fruitful source of divorces.
There are many activities in which
she can find refuge, such as church
work, the welfare of children, aiding
tho spread of education, and other
things, an interest in which follows
easily from a collego course.
But graduates of girls' colleges
havo not necessarily any monopoly
of the opportunities for domestic
Happiness. Any intelligent young
woman can easily make herself an
agreeable and loved companion for
a good husband and can find in her
own resources tho secret of banish
ing monotony from tho household.
If it has been her lot not to have
had the educational advantages
which her husband hap had, she
can, by application and tho right
sort of reading, easily bridge tho gap
sufficiently to satisfy and to make
herself an interesting life partner.

What the Wrestlers Boxers and Base

Lester, "newly created champion of

pion of Australia at least by beating
Bill Lang, From the case with
which McVey knocked out poor old
Bill, I judge that the 'newly creat

is up against it. He's little more
than a novice. But won't MoVoy

Setting new records for the op
posing boxmen to hurl at is a regu
lar hobby with Walter Johnson, tho
Idaho phenom of the Washington
Nationals. Last season Johnson set
a record by whiffing 316 batsmen.
This year Walter was not quite up
to his standard as a strike out artist,
but just tho same the big Swede
hung up a new mark. In a game
against the Naps in the latter part
of tho season Johnson pitched but
sixty-nine balls during tho entire
nine innings, winning his game, 2
to 1. This beat all to smash a
record set by Christy Mathewson
two weeks before, when Big Six
pitched only ninety-threo balls to
rctiro twenty-seven Red batters.
Bob Bescher, the Porkopolis mer
cury foot, again won tho National
League base-stealing honors by a
wide margin. Bob's thefts totaled
eighty, while Josh Dovore, the
Giant fly chaser, was his nearest
rival with sixty-four. Funny thing
about the aforementioned Josh De-
vore. Just because he fanned five
times in a row in tho recent world's
series, breezing four times before E
Gettysburg Plank and onco on tho
deceivers of John Coombs of Colby,
Josh came in for some severe kid
ding." However, figures show that
Josh's double won tho -first game
and that Josh's singlo helped to win
tho fifth. In view of tho fact that
tho Giants won only two, there
can't be much kick on Josh.

any particular player, but the team
as a whole must bear tho blamo.
Up to the ninth inning the game
was marked only by the heavy bat- .
ting of the losers, and tho playing
generally was loose on both teams. '
The second game was another
mixup, and even now there seems
to be some uncertainty whether a
regular league game Avas played, or
whether it was merely an exhibition
game. IJio ram management wish
ed to use a player who was ineligi-
bio according to tho rules, and de
clared if he was not allowed to play
they would forfeit the game. Rather
than disappoint the audience Capt. ''
