THE MAUI XFAVS, SATURDAY, JUNK 21, 1913.
HANA, June IS. Uncle Josh
Tucker "By Gosh!" was a liana
visitor 'this week, lie came to
settle the homestenil question arc!
for the 5D lots that cost the Govern
ment a mint of timm-v to lay out,
there were only two Kona l-'ide
applicants on the ground to take
their choice of lots, Mr. Sam
Acholic, of Nahiku, and Mrs.
Alice Rosehill Kahokuoluna wife
of Peter Noa Kahokuoluna.
It seems there were a few others,
but they had land already so could
not take tip any more under the
homestead agreement. It seems
useless to throw open any more
lauds throughout this district.
What we want for a homestead is a
piece of land, say 10 acres, with
running water, fenced, and with a
house on each lot. This to he
given to the homesteader ' free of
charge, and he to get the land free,
but to pay for theiinprovementsin
side of fifteen years.
Is liomesteading a success in
liana? Ask Josh Tucker! Are there
any more private tracts to be open
ed? See Josh Tucker, he is very
keen after his recent experience at
liana where the people are land
hungry, but have not got the
HIS is a bustling busy aVh'M we know,
And everybody's on the y;o,'
Excepting those who lag behind,
And they do not possess the mind
To turn a cog that makes things hum,
For they prefer to simply bum.
While others run the universe,
From birth until they ride the hearse,
I'd rather be a little wheel,
That helps to make the old world reel,
Than be a great big dressed up dude,
And let the real folks earn my food.
Iksides it's foolish too 1 guess,
To fool around in staitling duss,
While Tom and Dick and Harry too,
Make roads which we may pass through
They cannot pave the road on high,
While we sit round with brow quite dry,
With folded hands and sit up right
While their wet brows, our battles fight.
I think the angels up above
Will have their tasks, but tasks of love,
And those who cannot show their worth
While living on this clod of earth.
Will find they have some bitter tasks
To answer what St. Peter asks.
For Tom and Dick and Harry too,
Cannot at this time put us through,
For Angels will not stumble round,
On bodies sleeping on the ground
While they all pave the golden street,
That makes a heaven nice and neat.
There are no parasites on high,
For parasites can ne'er come nigh
God's great and bright celestial throne,
We're judged by earthly seeds we've sown.
So let us realize the fact
That we are here to move and act,
Each one a cog wheel or a groove.
To help to make this old world move.
All the excursion and sight-seeing launches
at the great X9 X5 San Francisco Fair
will be equipped with 'STANDARD'

Because the 'Standard' Gas Fngines
are efficient Engines, that's why
In this Territory 'STANDARD' Gas Engines (Marine
and Stationary) are sold exclusively by the
Honolulu Iron Works Company
