Appeal For Nurse's Cottage Crystal

That flic must resign her position
ns nurse at the Kulii Sanitarium
unless some other provision is made
for her comfort than is afforded by
the old rheumatic" tent, which
she has occupied for the last year
was tlie sense of a communication
from Miss Rebecca Akana, to the
hoard of Supervisors, nre.-ented at
Miss Akana will probably not get
the cottage she hopes for, or any
other form of relief from the board.
This was the attitude of the body
after the matter had been gone into
at considerable length. A good deal
of sympathy was expressed for the
nurse, but the board has decided
that the Kula Sanitarium should be
maintained by the territory and it
will work to that end with the next
legislature. In the meantime it
will try to keep up its present ex
penses, but will decline to authorize
any new ones. There was no dis

Dr. Raymond, who is attending
his first meeting as member of the
board, apparently voiced the senti
ment of the other members, when
ho stated that the care of twenty or
thirty more patients, who should
be in the institution, but for whom
there is no room, should bo consid
ered a teriitorial matter. Most of
them, ho said are Filipinos, or
other laborers' who were brought
hero by the Territory through its
conservation tax fund. They are
dependents whom the county has
no right to assume all the burden of
Charitable ladies have recently
been endeavoring to raise money

badly needed, and it is possible this
object may be realized, but it is

Gamblers Help Treasury.
Forfeited bail and fines in gam
bling cases in the district court this
week, netted the county something
like S2o0. A big crap game
near the Wailuku mill, which was
raided by the police, resulted in the
conviction of 12 llaivaiians and 2
Japanese players. The other cases
were from game3 raided in I'uunene
and other camps.
Sarah K. Xuuhiwa was this week
denied a divorce from her husband,
Kahaleao Xuuhiwa, from whom she
wanted separation on grounds of
extreme cruelty and non support.
Judge Edings found that tho com
plainant could not substantiate her
cruelty complaint, while it has been
less than sixty days since she was
not supported by her husband, and
hence the second complaint fails.
Reception at Alexander House
Ju honor of Miss Malone, a vis
itor in Wailuku from the Coast, and
Misb Drinklo, who recently arrived
from Towa to take up the kinder
garten work of the Alexander House
Settlement, a most pleasant recep
tion was held at tho Alexander
House on Monday afternoon from 3
to 5 o'clock. Miss Malone, was
formerly a resident of Wailuku, and
was closely identified with the in
auguration of the Settlement.
The recoption was attended by
some 35 ladies. A pleasant musical
program was rendered, of which a
particularly attractive number was
a vocal solo by Mrs. George N.

It is probable, however, that Bal
will remain in Wailuku a while
longer, since the inducements are
not particularly enticing in Hono

local admirers, however, believe it
will be hut a question of time until
he will have to get into faster com

Fight in Theatre When
Filipino's Toes Are Trod On
Louis Lake was fined Slo, and
juiipino named lierniade, $1U, by
Judge McKay, for engaging in i
fight in the Maui Theatre, last Sa
turday night. The trial took place
The row occurred in the theatre
during the showing of a picture,
and coiibiucraoio excitement was
occasioned in tho audience, which
was unable to understand tho
nature of the commotion. The trou
ble occurred when Lake accidentally
stepped on the toes of a Filipino
named Grcgoro, as he was getting
to his seat. The man with the
aching corns, pushed Lake none too
gently, and in return got a biff in
the face. Then Bermade, a friend
of Grcgoro's, took a hand and
struck Lake. The police finally
restored order and the show con
tinued. Objections to Cemetery

the development of Lahaina, and

It marked the first social gathering

Winning a Bouquet.
Among his stories of Homburg in
King Edward's days the author of "On
tho Track of tho Great" notes the fash
ion of "bunching" (presenting bou
quets to ladies) on the promenade and
tells this story of King Edward and
tho Roman artist, Corrodl:
One morning dear old Corrodl was
carrying around a bouquet of serious
proportions of fine tea roses which ho
proposed presenting to an American
lady for whom ho was eagerly seeking

exclaimed his royal highness. "How

Of course thoro was nothing left for
tho gonial Italian to do but to part
with his flowers and go and buy some
moro for the American lady.
Undoubtedly a number of bathers
who aro drowned meet their deaths
from cramp. Cramp Is liable to sclzo
anybody nt any moment, and when it
comes in deep water few swimmers
havo sulllcient presence of mlud to
turn on their backs and wait quietly
until tho attack lias departed. So they
go under. But there is another danger
quite as Imminent as cramp, though it
is probably less known. This is water
inhaling. A swimmer or even a wader
is always liable to inhale spray through
his nostrils, which, passing through tho
pharynx and behind tho epiglottis or
windpipe guard, gets into tho windpipe
and causes death. As one would ex
pect, water inhaling is almost wholly
confined to tho sea and very rarely
occurs in fresh water. All tho same,
It may happen anywhere.
