It isn't only the business firm or professional man
who now raises his correspondence above the
mediocre through aid of the printer's art.
Just your name and address in neat lettering at top
or corner of the sheet will add an individual touch
that at once raises your letter above the dead level
The additional cost per letter is trifling.
But of course much depends on the printing.

Two Stowaways Made to Work
Tlilrty-thrpe Pala boys hired Cnpt.
Duvauchnlle's power ranipnn for a

22nd Inst. The weather wrb very
pleasant nil the way to Molokai. On
the way bark. It was a little roueh.
but only a few boys were taken sick.
After taking In the moving pictures
at Kahulul Lyceum on Saturday tilKht,
the pr.rty boarded the boat at 11 p.
m., and steamed out of Kahulul har
bor. When approaching Knhakuloa
Point, two stowaways appeared. They
proved to be A. do Rpro (bettf r known
as Akonl Paakai), and A. S. Potnbo,
J., of Wailuku. Being already too far
from Kahulul to return and deport the
ttoways, Capt Duvauchelle assigned
Akonl to scrub the decks and Pomho
to wipe grease in the engine room.
At 5:30 a. ni. Sunday, the party ar
rived at Ka'.aupapa and cruised around
the harbor, takhig in the sights and

chelle cruised through a large cave
and landed the party near Waielau,
where the boys spent four hours on
shore, taking in the sights, snnnnina
pictures, fishing, swimming, and Both

land; he was kept busy scrubbing the
decks for the return trip. It was 5:00

Dry Weather General
The weather contiues drv and hot
throughout the Territory except in the
ivona district. Kona is drei cued viih
daily floods. Hilo reports showers
near the sea, benefitting the erowlne
cane but not extending to the upper
leveis, so mat mime water Is still a
trifle short. Hamakua is dry and hot
with deep dust on the main roads.
The fields are cleaner than usual, the1
weatner Having been favorable to cul
tivation. The 1916 crop has not Buf
fered much to date but another month
or two without rain will cut next
year's crop materially. If the rains
come a big 1916 harvest will be as
sured. The 1917 planting is well ad
vanced. Maui Agricultural has been short of
ditch water. The 1917 planting is
a good deal behind. Maul seems to
have had less rain than any other Is
land. On Oahu "dry and hot" is the
Summing up, the cane- has come
through thus far in pretty good shape
but dry weather from now on Is t-'oing
to count against both 1916 and 1917
Texas May Be Rival in
Growing of Roselles
While eastern manufacturers of
jams and jellies are not yet ready to
make contract for the roselle, they
have promised that early this fall they
will inform A. T. Longley, superinten
dent of the territorial marketing di
vision, Just how much of the fruit they
will purchase In Hawaii In 1916.
Mr. Longley recently returned from
a trip to the mainland. He visited
Chicago and interviewed the .heads of
various jam and jelly concerns regard
ing the roselle. While they claim it
Is a useful product, and that they may
make purchases la Hawaii, they state
that the growing of roselle may be
entereS into on a large scale in Texas
within a few months.
SUNDAY MOVIES PETITIONS OUT.
A number of petitions are being cir
culated for presentation to the next
meeting of the board of supervisors,
favoring the Sunday movies proposi
tion. It is understood that they are
being largely signed around Wailuku,
but not at Kahulul.
Big Coaling Plant
Possible for Hilo
Japanese Capital Said to Be Back of
Such A Move Oriental Line of
Steamers Would Use Station.
IIILO, Aug. 23. That a new compe
titor in the coal business of the ter
ritory will soon enter the field in
these islnnds and that the headquar
ters will be established In Hilo, is the
news that has filtered through from
ll Is stated on good authoriiy that
a firm of Far Kastern merchants is
periou:-ly thinking of starting up In the
coal business In this city, and that un-
'United capital is available for such a
proposition. The recent addition to
the Hilo breakwater and the probab
ility of an early completion of that
oik is one of the chief reasons given
for the intereft In things Hawaiian
now shown in the Orient.
Should certain negotiations be com
pleted satisfactorily, there Is but lit
tle doubt that Japanese capital, or
rather money which Is nov invested
In the Far Fast, Mill be turned to
inm account In l!io. The promoters
of th" scheme are gatiyOed that as
soon as the breakwater is extended
f-ome distance a steamr.blp trade will
spring up at this port that is it coal
ing station aie located here.
Communications have passied to and
fro and at last there would appear
to be something definite to go upon
It is expected that within a short
time from now a representative of the
Oriental company will visit Hilo and
look tnto the whole proposition.
Ashes of Carl Meinecke

Malihini Tramper Has
Rough Time on Haleakala
John A. Wieduwult, who calls him
self the "universal tramp and stow
away," recently attempted to descend
from the crater of Haleakala through
the Koolau Gap to Keanae, according
to the story he has told in Honolulu.
From his description of the country,
he probably did do something of the
kind, but that he wandered from July
31 to August 6 without food and for
three days without water, may be
taken with a grain of salt.
Wieduwult says that he was lured
by tho apparent nearness of the sea
Into undertaking a short cut to It.
He suffered the greatest hardships In
the unbroken jungle, and finally came
out at Pauwela. Tauwela, however is
a good many miles from the unbroken
mountain forests, and he must have
found relief long before he reached
CLAUDINE AGAIN ON RUN.
The steamer Claudine is again back
on her run this week after undergoing
repairs on the Honolulu docks. The
Mauna Loa is now substituting for
the Klnau while this Kauai boat in
getting a similar overhauling.
A man doesn't give himself any the
worst of it when he tells the story
of his life to a woman.
