At the Wailuku Courthouse hist
Wcilncsiliiy tuorniiig, the drawing
for lots of tliu Kiiupiikiilua home
stead tract Was hrought off by I)c
puty Land Commissioner V. O.
Aiken. There was a good attend
ance and twelve lots were taken up,

Some of the people who took up the

There were twenty-six lots in all
to be balloted for, but only twelve
were disposed of. The settlers are
formed into an association and they
have the right, for three months, to
say who shall take up land on the
tract, and who shall not. After the
three months are pau, the lots may
be applied for by anyone.
The laud taken up on Wednesday
is located just beyond and adjoin
ing the present Haiku homesteads.
The lots are divided into areas of
from 35 to 45 acres. Under the
right of purchase lease, the home
steaders have to take up their re
sidence on the land within one
year from the date they secure the
land. Then, for two years more,
they have to live on the selection
and fulfill the requirements of the
law, before they can get their patents
to the land. '
The drawing in Honolulu took
place some time ago. That drawing
settled the names of the lucky ones,
and the order in which they should
take part in the second drawing
that took place on Wednesday

in a short time from now, become
citizens of Maui, are as follow : John

The United States, says the De
partment of Agriculture, is probably
the largest consumer of Circassian
walnut, one of the world's best
known and most expensive cabinet
The high cost of Circassian wal
nut is due to the scarcity of the
beautifully figured variety demand
ed for furniture and interior finish,
for the tree itself is more widely
distributed than almost any other
of commercial importance. The
demand for the best wood, however,
has always outrun the supply.
Even in the eighteenth century,
when wars in Europe were frequent,
so much Circassian walnut was used
for gunstocks that the supply was
seriously depleted. t Early in the
nineteenth century the wood of
12,000 trees was used for this pur
pose alone. Single trees, contain
ing choice burls or fine bird's-eye
figures have sold for more than
The tree is native to
slopes of the Caucasus
eastward to the foothills of the
Himalaya Mountains, from which
it extends southward to northern
India and the mountains of upper
Burma. It lias been widely planted
in Europe and the United States,
in this country under the name of
English walnut. The wood grown
here, however, Iras not the qualities
demanded by the cabinet and
furniture maker. Much of the Cir
cassian walnut now used comes from
the Black Sea and from other parts
According to a circular just is
sued by the Forest Service the de
mand for Circassian walnut lias re
sulted in the substitution of other
woods. Our own red gum is often
sold as Circassian walnut, and but
ternut is also similar in general
appearance to the less highly figured
grades. Many good African, Asian
and South American woods resem
ble Circassian walnut, though none
possesses the magnificent figure,
delicate tones, and velvety texture
of the latter. The circular discuss
es the supply and uses of Circassian
walnut, and those who wish to
know how possible substitutes may
bo distinguised can learn from this
circular the distinctive marks which
the Government's experts have dis
covered, WANTED 1'OIIAS.
