THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1913.
Roaring Camp Stunt Pleased Every
Was in Order,
There was a really good time at
the K. 1'. smoker last Saturday
evening, and the lig hall was
crowded with good fellows who
came from all over Maui to see the
"show''. There were people from
Lahaina, and a big contingent
came from the ancient capital. In
all. there were over one hundred
people present and they all had the
of their lives.
As one entered the hall the first
thing that attracted one's attention
was a huge "hank" with Jack
Walsh acting as "teller." Jack
handed out monev by the thousand
of dollars and everybody was in
vited to get some before beginning
the rounds of the "camp". The
"bank'' had an unlimited amount
ot cash and all the visitors were
soon loaded down with coin.
Just opposite that bank was the
saloon, and three brisk looking
bartenders were doing a roaring
trade. Bill Mountcaslle, R. A.I
Wadsworth and F. Streubeck were
the knights of the barrel. They
handed out all sorts of "boo.e" in
return for cash. Some of the
people who took their friends along
for a sniff ter found that three
drinks cost $20 in iron washers
that represented the real thing.
Over from the saloon was a rou
lette table which was crowded all
the evening and which did a land
office business. Hugh Howell,
who was running the bank managed
during the evening to rake in about
all the money there was in sight.
His pile of chips and washers must
have amounted to some thousands
of dollars. Hugh was Johnnie on
the Spot, and he did the thing and
everybody for that matter in
A cigar store also figured in the
fun, and Alfred Martinsen kept
everpbody busy either buying
smokes or shooting the bones for
them. Cigars brought wonderful
prices and the stand made much
Card tables were scattered around
the hall, and poker and every other
kind of game was to be seen in
operation. Fabulous stakes were
wagered and there was no limit
expect the sky. Bill Field seemed
to be not able to lose, and he turn
ed out to be the largest individual
winner of the evening. Bill now
sports a fine pipe as a memento of
of his luck at the K. P. Roaring
There was many a funny incid
ent during the evening and all was
merriment and fun. The K. P.
committee kept things going on
the jump all the time, and the re
freshments and kaukau were ex
cellent. Aaudeville performance
was given and songs, speeches and
an excellent "nigger sketch" kept
the audience amused. The whole
affair was enjoyable and the K. Ps
made a ten strike with their smok
er. The music was good and the
"Aloha Quintette" Club earned a
reputation for themselves.
E. R. KEVINS Honolulu is a
hot place and, although I enjoyed
the ' Banana Court" proceedings,
I was glad to get back to Wailuku.
A. C. RATTRAY The trip we
made to Haleakala and the week
we spent in the crater will always
be remembered by me as one of the
greatest experiences of my life.

A cigar, according to a leading
dealer, is practically worthless
when it has reached the age of ten
years. One dealer possesses as a
curio a box of cigars that were
packed forty-four years ago.
In a rash moment the other day
he smoked one of the old-timers,
but he vows he never will smoke
another. All the aroma had van

show that the cigar was made of
tobacco, and that was about all.
It burned well, however, and left a
The mercury vapor lamp is
claimed by Herr Otto Haase to be
as effective as a sterilizer of under
clothing as in treating water. The
ultra-violet rays produce ozone,
and this destroys all disease germs
without injuriously affecting the
textile materials in any way.
In the experiments made, not
less than thirteen of the most viru
lent disease bacilli were present,
all of them being totally destroyed
by exposure to the light rays for
periods ranging from five to sixty
