THIS MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1913.
In future the meetings of the
Maui Chamber of Commerce will
b held quarterly and, unless there
is something of importance to come
up, the members will not be called
upon to attend special meetings.
This was all decided at the regular
meeting of Thursday last.
There was a good attendance of
members and one new one, Mr. K.
Deinert, was elected. Mr. George
IT. Robertson, of Urcwcr & Co.,
was an interested visitor, and he
mot many friends during the after
noon. The change in the calling of
meetings was thought to be a good
idea, because there have been meet
ings at which practically nothing
has been done. The three-monthly
idea is thought to be more satis
factory and, at any time, the pre
sident or the vice-president, can
call a special meeting to discuss
anything of importance to the
Thursday evening was a led let
ter one for the Masons, and the
farewell dinner that they gave at
the Maui Hotel in honor of the
Rev. W. S. Short was the best, and
most largely attended that has ever
been given on Maui. Nearly sixty
guests sat down to the banquet
and, from soup to nuts, there was
a good time, a good dinner and
many good speeches. The toasts
were all honored in good old fash
ion, and the responding speeches
were the best ever heard on Maui.
The departure of Mr. Short is
much regretted, and the Masons
showed that they feel sad at the
removal of their brother from the
Hawaiian Islands. The many
speeches made showed plainly the
high esteem in which Mr. Short
is held, as a brother and as a man.
Every speech was tinged with re
gret at the departure for the main
land of the guest of honor.
The banquet was up to the best
-Maui Hotel style, and there was
not a hitch in the proceedings.

That the Harvest Home Festival
of the II. C. tfc S. Company, which
is to be celebrated on Saturday
next, will bo the' best sporting and
amusement event of years, is the
prediction of those who know ai y-
thing about the Puunene Athletic
Club and the men who do things on
the big plantation. The day will
bo one long joyful time, and the
Honolulu visitors will surely have
tho time of thoir lives on the tennis
courts, the bowling alley, the base
ball diamond and in the swimming
tank and tho ballroom.
The Honolulu visitors will bo
well takon care of by tho Puunene
people and the local folk will be
entertained at a picnic lunch on tho
All tho friends of members of the
Puunene Athletic Club are cordially
invited to attend the club's annual
function and, although no formal
invitations will be sent out, the
' Puunono people expect to see all of
thoir friends present in force.
An effort will bo made to finish
up theftennis, tho bowling and tho
swimming before lunch or at least
before two o'clock or so. Thon tho
arowd iu oxpootod to make a run to
the Wailuku baseball park, where
in tho afternoon, tho Intor-Island
ball game will bo played between
Rsv. W. Short
the Maui nine and the Punahou
Collego team. That the ground will
be crowded, goes without saying,
and the game should bo the best
ever pulled off on Maui.
After the ball game is pan, the
visitors from Honolulu will bo taken
caro of and entertained at dinner
by their many friends. The local
people, and nil those who attend
the athletic events, can then go
home, have dinner and dress for
the big dance, which will bo held
at the Puunene Clubhouse in the
evening. The best of music has
been secured and, as the floor is in
excellent condition, a merry time
should bo had by those who enjoy
the dreamy waltz, the giddy two
step and the exciting "rag."
The people who wish to attend
the ball game had better secure tick
ets at once. A nominal charge of
twenty-live cents is made in order to
dofray the expenses of the team
from Honolulu. Ul. Cliislctt is
selling tickets and they can also bo
obtained from any member of the
I'uunenc Athletic Club.
President Ed. Deinert, of the
Puunene Athletic Club has been
working hard on the propo ition of
the day of sport, and he feels cer
tain that everything will go off in
the famous manner that the club's
doings arc noted for.
There will be one big time on
the evening of August 29, when

stunts are being thought out, and

How Tigers Are Caught.
Tigers are captured as cubs and also
when fully grown. Often tho animal
hunter, to tho delight of the natives,
will entrap some much dreaded man
enter. Tho tigers are caught In large
pitfalls, and various methods of secur
ing tho animals arc adopted. In sonio
cases a strong wooden trap Is fixed in
tho pit, and when tho animal falls
through trio lightly covered mesh nt
tho top It traps nnd cages itself auto
matically. In others It merely falls
Into a big hole and has to bo secured
and dragged out by ropes.
In certain parts of India tho natives
are so daring that they will place a
collar, from which hang a number of
twenty foot ropes, nround tho neck of
tho newly caught tiger. To the end
of each rope a man will hang for dear
Hfo and by pulling against each other
guldo the Infuriated brute along the
path they wish to follow. In this man
ner they literally walk tho tiger to

full of rope, aud it reached up high in a
pile, and it nil fell down on top of
Willio Jones nnd burled him, but Willie
Jones didn't care, and ho just kept on
pulling and pulling and pulling and
pulling at that old rope, and pretty soon
ho pulled so hard that ho pulled the
end off the rope, and Willie Jones saw
that there wasn't any end to tho ropo
and he'd havo to go on pulling and
pulling nnd pulling and pulling forever,
but ho didn't want to do that, and so
he stopped pulling and went in to
