Actual work on the Kihei boat
landing will soon start, says con
tractor Hugh Howell. "All we
are waiting for now, is some neces
sary machinery that should be
along soon," stated Mr. Howell
the other dav.
Part of the machinery is already
on the ground, and as soon as the
balance conies the work will be
t , rushed to a conclusion. Providing
"f the weather is good, and that no
jj,- 1 unforseen accident happens, the
contractor expects to have the
f. y wharf finished and ready for busi-
' 11CS 011 or about July 1.

' :- The Kihei wharf, as everybody
, 'J1; 'knows, has been talked and written
about for a long time past. The
fact that it will soon be a reality,
instead of a promised affair, seems
good to the people of Maui.
Before long there will be a com
mittee appointed to go into the
whole matter of the education sys
tern of this territory. Arrange
ments are being made to have a
member of the National Bureau of
Education come to Hawaii and to,
with the assistance of two local
men, go through the wjiole matter
relating to the schools of the terri
The two local men will have no
connection with the education de
partment, and they will be selected
from the business ranks. They
will be competent to investigate
conditions and to propose new
methods of - education, if found
It is said that the commissioners
of education are favorable to the
proposed plan, and at least two of
them have declared that the idea
is an excellent one. It is thought
that the lay members of the pro
posed committee will be able to
V point out the kind of education
that is needed in our cosmopolitan
community to fit the pupils for the
work they will take up upon leav
One of the most attractive pro
grams presented in years will be
offered the public on the evenings
"of March 2S, 2!), at the Town Hall.
Mrs. Louise Chisholm Jones who
has the'uiYair in charge, together
with committees under her, has
prepared the list of musical and
other events that arc to bo ready
lor theso evenings, lnc altair is
called a Winter Garden. Reserve
scats will bo on sale soon. Tt is
expected the affair will bo one of
the best patronized in years.
Anything that Mrs. Jones under
takes in the concert or musical lino
always succeeds. This so-callec
Winter Garden will be a high clas3
affair, and one that is bound to re
coivo a lot of attention. For sevcru
weeks the plans have been elaborat
od and everything in the -way of
music, song, andrecitation will be
so funny laugher will be in ordo.
The fact that the talent is loca
will inako it all the more amusing,
Italian and Spanish 'costumes wil
be in vogue. The class of refresh
ments and the way they are served
will make one think one in back
in Europe. Secure your reserva-
tions next week, a3 soon as the hal
is planned, so as not to bo left at
the last minuto.
rfc The schooner "Defender" sailed from
Haua last Tuesday with a cargo of sugar
for Sau Francisco.
On Thursday evening the Kahu
lui biliiard players defeated the
Wailuku cue artists by a score of
129 to 92. This victory puts the
waterfront club ahea'l so far, that
the tournament is cinched. The
Kahului team now leads by 83
oiiits, and they need but a few to
complete the total of 1,000 that is
needed to complete the series.
There is already talk of another
match, and the probabilities are
that one will be soon underway.
Much interest is being taken in the
sport now-a-days, and the verdict
is that it is the best indoor game
n the world.
The newly formed committee on
sports will look into the billiard
proposition. Pool will also claim
the attention of the cue wielders.

CHALKING UP LATE THAINS.
bout a hundred pounds of chalk
a day are used up in the winter in
the Western railroad stations. It
is used by the trainmen marking on
the bulletin boards the number of
minutes or hours that the trains
arc behind time. It is not unusual
in severe winter weather for some
trains on some hard weather roads
to bo 12, 24, oG or even -18 hours
late. There have been instances of
trains a week or two weeks late,
held by snowdrifts.
EIGHT YEARS LATE.
Northern railroad men never can
hope to approach the record made
by a train that left Beaumont,
Texas, on Septembers, 1900, bound
for Bolivar Point, just across the
bay from Galveston. That train
arrived in Bolivar Point eight years
late. Tho hurricane that devastat
ed Galveston drove the waters of the
Gulf far inland and washed away
all the tracks of the Gulf & Inter
state Railroad except that upon
which this train stood. It remained
there engine, cars and all for

Pictures of peaches arc common
from Dyckman street to the Battery,
but there are only a few persons
here who can give their best girls
peaches with the young women's
pictures on them for Christmas.
Tho fad of fruit photography has
just reached here, and it is becom
ing fashionable in society circles.
The scheme is simply making a print
of a face on ripening fruit by means
of a film negative. Apples are bet
ter than peaches for this purpose,
and only fruit that has a firm, un-
niarrcd, smooth and uniformly
colored surface produces good re
sults. A stencil portrait is affixed
to the fruit and the sun does the
rest. The only satisfactoiy adhesive
that has been found for attaching
the stencil is tho saliva of the gard
TOUCHING TO VANITY.
Fashionable fruiterers' shops in
the West End of London now have
pictorial fruit on display and a loy
al Britisher can buy an apple with
King George smiling on the skin
of it for from 75 cents to SI. 50. In
Paris, whero tho fruit portraits are
made best, rich Americans aro mak
ing a hit by placing before each of
their guests at extravagant banquets
a peach or apple bearing a faithful
sun picture of the diner's features
PARIS GOWNS AND CHECKERS.
There's a quaint old restaurant
of irreproachable cuisine and equal

more than a cavair sandwich throw
