Tonight there will he some awful
creatures walking the streets of
Wailtiku, wending their way to
wards the Wailuku Armory, where
the local lodge of the Loyal Order
of Moose has made preparations
for the grand masquerade ball. The

store for all those in possession of a
ticket, which can he procured at
any of the principal stores.
The committee in charge of
affairs has selected the following
gentlemen to act as judges tonight,

ell, Sheriff; W. K. -Hal, District
Overseer and the Editor of the
Some of the prizes to be given
away tonight have been on ex
niDHion ai me rioneer More in
Wailuku, and they are centainly
well worth going after. The silver
set given by the Maui Dry Goods
& Grocery Co., Ltd., is something
that the winner may well feel
proud of. There will be in all six
or seven prizes, all good ones, and
the winner of any of these will be
proud of his or her gift.
Kaia and his stringed orchestra
will furnish good music, which
alone will be worth the price of
admission, as there are one or two
solos by Mr. Kaia in store for the
audience. Unmasking will take
place at a little after 10 o'clock, or
just after the prizes have been
awar led by the judges. Light
refresements will be served by the
committee. The Aniory has been
wired and is now equipped with
electric lights, which overcome
the illumination question, that
has always been a source of con
tention against the use of the
Armory. A general good time will
be had, and lots of fun will be on,
as tnasqueraders are generally in
the merry-making mood.
The prizes will be on display at
the Armory tonight, including the
Califene cakes made by Mrs. West
and donated as a prize for some of
Western hemlock, says the De
partment of Agriculture, deserves a
better opinuyi and more jeiii ral use
than it now obtains. Intrinsically
it is among the most important of
The wood of western hemlock has
generally been considered an in
ferior one chiefly because of the pre
judice created by the name, which
has caused it to be identified with
eastern hemlock. Test by the 'For
est Service, however, shows it to
have 88 per cent the strength of
Douglas fir, one of the country's
chief construction timbers. In fact
it is often mixed witli Douglas fir
and used for the samn purposes.
The wood is practically free from
pitch , has a handsome grain, takes
paint and stain well, and works
smoothly. It is suitable for sash
and door stock, furniture, interior
finish, framing, flooring, Uxes,
barrels and pulp In bridges and
trestles it can be used fur all hut the
heaviest construction. When pro
perly treated with preservatives, it
is a valuable cross tie and pole wood.
According to Forest Service Iul
letin 115, the best stands of western
hemlock are found in the coast
region and through the Cascade
Mountains. The bulletin further
gives the results of tests by which
the mechanical properties of western
hemlock have leen determined, und
tells of the different uses to which
the wood is adapted.

coolness and U auty of the retreat.
The whole building is fly and
mosquito proof, and there are ven
tilating devices of all sorts. When
it comes to the operating theater,
the very air is filtered before it is
allowed into the chamber where the
surgeons use the instruments that
bring health back to the sick ones.
The corridors that lead through
the building are very wide and they,
as are all the rooms and wards,
lined with wood that looks like the
interior furtr ',-g of some private
7- '"" The effect, right through
out the hospital, is one that re
minds the visitor of a finely deco
rated ship. The panel effect is
carried out ami tl.e result is that
everything looks beautiful.
The hospital has, practically,
eight wards and three private rooms.
There are also, "lining rooms for
patients and the l urses. Store
rooms, pantries and closets abound.
The kitchen is a fine airy room
from which not the slightest odor
of food escapes. The store room
is equipped with refrigerators and
everything, from the huge range, to
the latest thing in pans, is of tl.e
The wards of the hospital are
divided so that the surgical cases
are a long way from those that con
tain patients suffering from other
troubles. Everything is spotless,
and the floors are covered with a
patent mixture which is called
Fiber Stone. The preparation,
which is about one inch thick, seems
to ' form an ideal flooring. It is
noiseless and can hu washed down
so that no possible cause for trouble
could arise through it.
The drug rooms and dispensaries
are fine places, and the latest and
best drugs are only carried. The
dispensing is well taken care of and
that department, like all the others,
is up-to-date. The receiving rooms,
where the patients are examined
before being admitted to the hos
pital, are comfortably fitted out,
and the unfortunates can sit down
and await the verdict of the doctor
as to their being admitted or re
turned to their homes.
The operating theater and the
necessary adjoining rooms are fitted
out in the latest up-to-date manner.
The theater is splendidly lighted,
both by day and by night. The air
is filtered before being pumped into
the operating room, and there are
all kinds of sanitary arrangements.
An X-ray outfit is established at
the hospital and it is of the latest
The hospital maintains its own
laundry and all the work is done
by electric power. Washing ma
chines, wringers, ironers and dryers
are to be seen doing their appointed
tasks. The power conies from an
electric power house located on the
ditch, a little disiance from the hos
pital. The water comes from the
Haiku ditch and is diverted into
the Camp 2 ditch, upon which the
power house is located.
The doctor's house is a comfort
able, well-built bungalow and it
stands within a short distance of
the hospital. The nurses also have
a cottage that is replete with every
thing that can make them comfort
able. A fine garage ami stable is located
within a few hundred feet of the
hospital. Six stalls are provided
for horses and there is room for at
least half-a-dozen cars in the garage.
. The lawns around the hospital
are being cared for and the grass is
beginning to look green and level.
The trees that have been planted
are growing fast and there will be
in a few years time, a fine avenue
approach to the buildings.
The hospital staff consists of the
Medical Superintendent, Dr. F- E.
Sawyer, the Matron, Mrs. Heggs;
Nurses, Miss Oblinger and Miss
Akana. Dr. Maples is an assistant
and is in charge of the dispensaries.'
XL H. IP. Hn TUcw
Experiments in the lighting of
the Wool worth building tower are
as interesting to the thousands of
persons who nightly gaze at the big
structure as to the men making the
tests. Huge flamir.g arc lights in
the uppermost floors shed powerful
rays of light which resemble a bat
tery t)f searchlights in operation.
Below are several floors illuminated
with ghastly, pale-green electiical
displays, and then there are several
other layers of different kind of
lights on the floors below, so that
in many respects the tower resem
bles u ponsse cafe.
So many restaurants are display
ing pumpkins of unusual size that
Tip inquired alxiut them. This is
one explanation : The growers wait
until the pumpkin is about ripe,
and then they make a small hole
that extends into the hollow centre
of the vegetable. A straw is insert
ed nnd milk is forced into the
pumpkin. All of this fluid is readily
absorbed by the pumpkin, and the
size of its growth is limited only to
the amount of milk which can be
injected before the pumpkin v be
comes ripe. 1 liese milk-feu pump--
kins are the best on the market and
form the chief ingredient in pies of
a kind that mother never thought
of equaling before the feeding pro
cess was discovered.
HIS MILLIONTH PRESCRIPTION.
J. J. Schott of Galveston, Tex ,
has been druggist for thirty years
and has occupied the same shop all
that time. The other day he put
up his millionth original prescrip
tion. He celebrated by closing his
establishment for four hours and
taking all his employes down to the
island for an oyster roast. That
was the first time in thirty years
his doors ever had been closed and
the first time all his employes ever
had come together in one gathering.
MONEY IN THEIR CLOTHES.
All the employes of the manufac
turing plant of a Fifth avenue
jeweler are said to turn their work
ing clothes over to the superinten
dent each month or bo, and when
the working duds are cremated
several hundred dollars of gold is
melted out of them.
MAYBE A DOCTOR'S TRUST
Doctors began the new year in
Havre by jumping their fees and
they say the increased cost of living
made them do it. The lowest fee
for a visit,' whkh was 58 cents, now
is 77, and when the French physi
cian is called between 7 and 10 at
night or on Sunday he doubles his
bill. The patient who gets sick
after 10 p. in. has to pay four times
the regular fee.
OPEN SEASON ON GLASSES.
Superstitions die hard. There's
the old gossip that you can't land
your fist on the face of a man who
wears glasses without laying your
self specially open to a charge of
felony, with a good chance of being
convicted. The roots of this tire-
conceived notion stretch far back
into the obscurity of early history.
In iMint of fact, there is nothing in
tne laws of New York that makes
the slightest distinction between the
man who wears glasses and the man
who doesn't when it conies to a
mix-up. There's a wide-open sea
son on men who wear glasses.
PANAMA CANAL ISLANDS.
"Floating islands" are one of the
sights to be seen at the Panama
Canal, as well as in the Saragossa
Sea. They are large masses of veg
etation and earth loosened from the
bottom of (iatun Lake by the rising
water and blown out on the lake
surface by ever-changing winds.
One noon the workmen left work
for lunch when the lake was blue
and clear as the sky. An hour
later, when they returned, the sur- J
face of (iatun Liike was dotted with
small green islands. All due to a
veer in the wind.
OLD EGGS NOT UN HEALTHFUL.
Months ago a doctor in the Health
Department stated that some spoil
ed eggs were not unwholesome.
Maybe he was pretty much right.
For some weeks, the town has been
full of storage eggs, eggs of age and
with large air spaces. Somebody
has been eating those eggs, yet there
seems to be no sickness reported
caught from consuming oldest cold
storage eggs. Maybe the Chink
eggs kept for years are pretty good
in their places, as Chinese have
been using 'em for a longtime, and
surely they would have found it out
before now if their ancient eggs
were the cause of sickness.
