James Brooks remarked that it
was the forty-first aniversary of his
birthday, and instantly his two
frii'iida, Joseph Rogers nnd George
Murphy, suggested that tho happy
event lie celebrated properly. All
"dug down into their jeans."
Murphy produced a suspender but
ton, and Ilogers a rusty pocketknifo,
with three blades gone. Brooks
searched "his singlt) pocket that was
in repair and brought to light noth
ing but yesterday's atmosphere.
Despondency settled like a cloud
over the shabby trio. Suddenly a
teamster shouted and they narrow
ly escaped from being tramped on
by a heavy team. They hurried
out of tho street and the unusual
violence of this exorciso stirred their
sluggish blood and their somnolent
How 'bout dat cilibration?"
askedj Brooks, half way down to
ward River street.
"Were's do price, dat's wat I
want t' know," said Murphy.
Hero's de price," exclaimed
Rogers, pointing to a two-wheeled
push cart which had been left by a
fruit peddler in front of a saloon
while he had gone to seek refresh
Like Athos,' Aramis and Porthos,
the one thought flashed through
their three minds. They raised
their right hands, and it is probable
if they had ever heard of Dumas
and had been provided with swords
they would have crossed them on
high and have cried "One for all
and all for one." .
Keeping perfect step and shoulder
to shoulder, they trotted to the
curb, placed their six hands on the
handle of tho cart and rolled it
ahead of them down Hotel street.
Once or twice they blocked traffic,
but finally they succeeded in reach
ing King street,, where they headed
for a second-hand store they know.
"Say, bo', fifty coppers fer de
cart,'' said Murphy. 'Wo need
de chop dollar on account o' hart
luck; a guy stole our bananas."
Tho second-hand dealer examined
tho vehiclo and stated that fifty
cents was. exorbitant. Finally he
brought the price down to ten cents.
"It's all' yourn," cried Brooks.
"Dat's a brace er quarts, an' it's fer
a birt'day party."
Tho dime was just about to drop
from tho fingers-of the dealer into
Br6oks' eager outstretched palm,
when a policeman approached from
the opposite side of tho street.
"Keep yer change," cried Brooks.
''Dis here's a mistake. Dis here
belongs to a poor guy down on
Brooks turned tho cart around
and started with it on a run. Rogers
and Murphy followed, overtook
Brooks and placed their hands also
on the handle of the cart. The
Detective took up tho chase. While
making the turn, into a cross street,
Murphy lost his hold, stumbled and
rolled into the gutter. Brooks and
Rogers went on with the cart. Tho
Detective stopped long enough to
handcuff Murphy to a post and
again took up tho chase. At the
next street Brooks Blipped and near
ly turned a somersault. This caused
the cart to swerve and to wrench
its handle from Roger's hand.
Rogers careened and sat down heavi
ly with the handle beneath him.
The handlo, acting like a lever, up
set the cart squarely over his head.
Tho policeman escorted the ex
hausted trio to jail and charged them
with petty larceny.
Why did you run7" asked the
Police Judge of tho defendants.

back,'" explained Murphy. It
was a mistake."
I find you all guilty and will
sentence you tomorrow."

Maui Gets a Glimpse f the First
Lot of Farmers.
Last Saturday thero arrived on
Maui quite a bunch of fanners and
would-be farmers, who had pre
viously signified their intention of
taking up some of the new lands so
recently opened up in tho Haiku
district. Many of the homesteaders
arc from California, and quite a few
others are well known Honolulans.
This particular lot of farmers had
divided themselves into two asso
ciations, and were officially known
as the. Lindsay Settlement Associa
tion and the California Settlement
Association. The Lindsay Associa
tion were mostly Maui people, who
know the possibilities of the land in
this district and who were eager to
participate in the benefits to be de
rived from more land in the pine
apple district. Tho California As
sociation is just what the name im
plies, and is composed mostly of
Califomians, who see great possibili
ties in the now homesteads. Quito
a number of ladies havo taken up
homesteads on this tract, atid they
are to be admired for their pluck.
Tho common man does not care a

nig a iooinoui on Maui was dis
cussed at some length. Mr. Poguo
stated that the Board of Supervisors
had already applied to the Board:of
Agriculture for commissions for sev
eral police officers, in order that
they might have the authority to
search all baggage coining in at the
various ports and destroy all fruits
that might be found.
The matter of tho Kihei wharf
was then brought un. and it was tho
unanimous opinion that the Harbor
Commission had at least been verv'
dilatory in getting to work on the
proposed wharf. Tho feeling was
very strong on this point, and if tho
Harbor Commission do not want
genuino trouble, they will heed tho

A number of tho members reported
interviews they had with different

though that company is bucking tho
