several times from suicide and jail,
etc. Got him jobs and he lost
them, but all the while he came
regularly to church. His wife left
him, 3 children are doing well
The man has reformed and here is
an evidence of his goodwill after all
these years! Quito a history, is it
not? I wish it could bo recorded in
the archives of the future Church of

hot as blazes. Was about 100 in

Ordinarily the ocean breeze cools us
off as we are at the head of a big
bay, can sec the river and water

Word has been received from
mauka that a most serious state of
affairs exists as regards the water
supply that is conveyed by the Kula
pipe line. At the present moment
there is not a drop of water in the
Waiakainoi reservoir, and the pre
cious fluid is non est for the poor
people who depend on their supply
from the pipe.
Chairman Sam Kalama, of the
board of supervisors, says that the
state of affairs is appaling and that
the shortage of water is causing
much suffering. In an effort to
help out, a number of men have
been put on with , hoses to try and
pump water from small waterholcs
to. the main supply ditch. This is
but a poor way of doing things but
4iothing else can be thought of.
Just five weeks ago there was an
over supply of water at Waiakainoi,
and millionsof gallons were running
to waste. Now there is no water,
and the imperative need of j another
reservoir at Oiinda or somewhere
else is becoming more and more

Corporal Tanner's favorite story Is In
connection with a presidential cam
paign of some years ago. The speakers
wero being carried through Iowa on
their special train. Tho mayor of the
last town passed always accompanied
them to the next town. One of theso
municipal dignitaries remarked that
the were a queer lot of Itepubllcans,
forMio hadn't seen a card -while he'd
been with them. They assured him
that they wero all "regular and
stanch," but had, strange to say, for
gotten to bring along nny cards or
chips. Ills honor expressed sympathy
and said he'd try to supply the need
ful. Soon afterward the next mayor met
them at a way station. After Introduc
tions and liquidations the two wero ob
served in close aud interested com
munion. In tho general buzz of conver
sation the details of the confab wero
lost, but No. 2 was heard to observe
to No. 1, "No, they ain't any such
thing in any store In our towji; bjit,"
as a bright Idea seemed to strike him,
"by cracker, I can pull a house!"
Sure enough, when, after tho speech
ifying at the town hall they returned

luckless gambler to meet the wants of
the traveling politicians. New York

A good story Is told of Sully, tho
painter. Ono day a gentleman came to
him to say that it would soon be his
wlfo's birthday and he wished to mako
her a present of his portrait. Could
Sully paint it in the time? Tho gen
tleman went on to say that the gift
must bp kept a profound secret.
A day or so later a Iadj; called on
Sully to say that her birthday would
soon be hero and she wished to glvo
her husband a portrait of herself.
Would Sully paint it? Tho gift, how
ever, must bo kept a profound secret.
