ANOTHER DOCTOR NBfiDEl).
TO the casual visitor, dropping into Wailuktt on a holiday, the
news that there is only one white medical man practising his pro
fession in the town, seems incredible. That a town of the size of
Wailuku should have but one white doctor, appears to lie a very strange
and startling fact. Still, it is true, and more's the pity. For it must
be realized that with but one doctor available, and he working night
and day, desperate chances are being taken by family men. Imagine
the lone doctor being called to one end of the town, and being detained
there by a serious, life or death case. Then, once more imagine a man,
woman or child, bleeding to death, or choking, at the very opposite end,
of Wailuku. Not a very nice picture to summon up, is it? Again,
imagine large party of people attending a luau and all of them con
tracting ptomaine poisoning. Spread all over the town the patients
would await the arrival of the solitary, overworked physician who,
might just as likely as not, be attending a case, miles away. Wailuku
should be able to offer attractions to more than one medical man, and
thus not only. relieve the present efficient doctor of some of his work,
but ii.-ake the -.... ns feel more comfortable than they do at present.
ROAD TO HALBAKALA.
tk LEXANDER Hume Ford has, once again, struck the right note.
His suggestion that a road to the very summit of Haleakala be
constructed, may appear to some people as something impossible
but, when tin: value of the proposition is considered, the enormous ex
pense that would have to be incurred, docs not seem so very great after
all. The eight, or so, miles of road would open to popular tourist trav
el the most wonderful sight in the Pacific if not in the whole world-
Tlie news that the trip to Haleakala could be made in a comfortable
'automobile, would soon spread all over the world, and the consequent
rush of tourists would tax the hotel accommodations of Maui to the
limit. When one remembers that, but a scant six years or so ago, there
was no idea of building a road down to the pit of Kilauea, and that
now the tourist can auto to the brink of the famous volcano, the scheme
suggested by Mr. Ford, regarding the Haleakala road, does not seem
such a dream as some people may imagine it to be.
That there is urgent need for some kind of a reform institution from
which lads could not escape, or come in contact with men of bad
character, is the opinion of many Maui citizens, who have given thought
to the matter. The spectacle of two Hawaiian boys one just eighteen

It will astonish many people to hear, through a Maui paper, that
Attorney Lorrin Andrews was at one time Sheriff of Maui. Of course
most people know that the late Judge Andrews of Hilo was the old
time sheriff Incidentally, Mrs. Lorrin A. Andrews, of Hilo, will, no
doubt, feel a trifle upset when she reads the article alluded to.
Through the death of General Booth, the world has lost a remarkable

creation of his younger days, and it bids fair to remain as a perpetual
monument to his memory.

planned for the future.

It is unfortunate that the great
game of baseball played between
the Stars and the Paia bunch, last
Sunday, should have caused bo
much bitter feeling. . Tho protest
of the Paia team raised a big row
and more's the pity. The score of
3 to 2, after a twelve inning game,
tells the story.
The swimming tank at Puunene
is much enjoyed by both the ladies
and gentlemen of tiie big plantation.
The youngsters also have merry
times in the tank, and some tiny
tots are showing good style.

William Searby, of Puunene, lias a
charming beach residence. Swim
ming parties are always to be seen
near the house and, within a short
time, a floating platform will be
buoyed near the shore. Several
small boats have been imported,
and tho swimmers use them to get
out to the reef.
Wren Wescoatt is a fine diver,
and the way he keeps in condition
is a marvel to see. His work last
Saturday was great, and he got
much applause from the spectators-
Puunene should have won the
relay race last Saturday, and it was
a fatal mistake to have the very
slowest man to swim the last lap.
Deinert went up against Will Roth
(about the fastest twenty-five yard
mau in the islands) and, of course,
lost badly. Next time the Puunene
team will know better.
