THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1913
All the results of the contests in
connection with the opening of the
Maui Dry Goods & Grocery Com
pany, Ltd., have been announced
and the following is the list:
The most popular young lady
Miss Mary Abreu. Guessing the
number of watermelon seeds, .John
Makahio, who guessed the exact
number, viz, 7oS; this was a re
markable guess, and the counters
could hardly believe their eyes or
count. Guessing the number of
seeds in a glass jar, ,1. 11 Bruce,
who went within ten of the tot'il by
his guess of 1,121. Best slogan for
advertising purposes, Ad. ChisleU,
whose slogan was: "Quick returns
and small profits." The catch
phrase was-surmountcd by a design
of a heart with two crossed spears
in the center. Mrs. Jason took
second prize with the following
phrase: "Hello Central I Give
me the Maui Dry Goods."
The management of the company
is very pleased with the way the

On July 4
On the evening of July Fourth
there will be a boxing contest, over
a fifteen round route, between
Kama, of Wailuku, and "Young
Jack Johnson" who, if he had
any sense of the eternal fitness of
things, would change his name.
This paper does not like to even
mention the cognomen of the big
black brute who should now be
serving; a jail sentence on the main
land. However, as the local lad is
decent enough, let the story go on.
The two pugs who will mix
things at the Wailuku Theatre on
the evening of the Fourth, should
put up a decent sort of go. Kama
delighted his friends the other
night by the way he handed out
the stoush to Correa, of Honolulu.
That he may do something of the
sort to the man he faces on July
Fourth, is the fervent wish of all
the Wailuku fight fans, who, of
course, want to see the local man
win. But, in the gentleman-who
adopts the "big smoke's" name,
Kama will find a very different pro
position to Correa.
Jack Grace, the well known
boxer and instructor, who is now
firmly settled in Wailuku, is deep
ly interested in the boxing contest.
He says that there will be a couple
of good preliminaries as well as the
main event, and that the fun will
be fast and furious from the first
tap of the gong till the last winner
is declared. Grace now has half-a-dozen
pupils,. .and among them are
the sons of some of the most prom
inent men on Maui. In the hands
of Grace, the bo)'S are safe, and he
will teach them how to put up
their props properly andshOwthcm
how tQ take of themselves when
some tough tries to get gay.
