I should have told the story in Hilo
of my visiting Haleakala forty-seven

tell the story. I have been to the

WHAT'S WRONG WITH
OUR TIME AGAIN?
Editor, Maui News:
The familiar tones of the town clock,
as it strikes hour by hour, are
pleasant to one's ears, but perplexin:;
to one's mind. One can understand
why there should be a variation from
Standard time on the plantations, but
it is not easy to understand why
there should be an established differ
ence betwtn standard time, and that
of the Town clock. Why cannot the
town clock, as it strikes hour by hour
register to the community standard
The republican precinct elections

Urges Mosquito Campaign
Editor Maui News:
The following conversation was
overheard one moonlight evening re
cently on the lanai of a Wailuku
Sweetness, do you love me? (Swat,
"Will you marry me and live with
me in a little vine-covered cottage?"

"Y'es dear on one condition."
"And what is that, pet?"
"That you make the cottage mosquito-proof."
And the lover went away sadly and
silently for alas! where was such a
cottage to be found on Maui?
Isn't it about time we were doing
something towards getting rid of this
pest that turns our otherwise delight
ful evenings into hours of torment?
This isn't such an impossible task
as it seems at first thought. Hono
lulu has made great strides in this
direction by organized, persistent ef
fort and what Honolulu can do we
The mosquito nuisance has been
more in evidence this year than ever
before to the writer's knowledge. No
body likes him, yet, judging by the
way he thrives, nobody makes any
serious effort to destroy him. There
is a great deal of talk about attracting
the tourist to Maui and of providing
means for his entertainment while
with us, but what about making his
nights as comfortable and enjoyable
as his days? It is humiliating to be
compelled to sleep under a net which,
in the very nature of things must sel
dom he free from dust, and shut one's
self in from tho pure night air, and
yet how many homes are sufficiently
mosquito-proof to make sleeping with
out nets a possibility?
livery old tin can about your pre
mlsees is a possible incubator for in
fant mosquitos and every stagnant
pool an excellent breeding place. The
mosquito's life is a short one, even
provided be lives to his allotted span,
and is in fact merely a matter of a
few days. If each Individual made a
conscientious effort to prevent new
generations from maturing about his
own premises, the results would with
out doubt surprise him.
Honolulu is using prison labor, I be
lieve, in the effort to get rid of the
mosquito. Could not some such
scheme be adopted advantageously on
Molokai Mystery Is
Puzzle To Police
Prominent Chinese Has Been Miss
ing More Than Week Foul
Sheriff Crowell, who has been on
MolokaJ all this week, engaged in
the search for Wong Wai Bound, a
well known Chinese of Ualapue, who
disappeared from his home at an
early hour Wodniesday morning 'of
last week, has written to Deputy
Sheriff Ferreira that thus far the
search has been fruitless. Whether it
is a case of suicide or foul play, is
somthing the officers have unable to
decide. The Chinaman is known to
have had some trouble with his wife,
and he was also disturbed over the
poor yields of his fish ponds, which
lie believed were being robbed. He
was in the habit of visiting these
ponds in the night with a gun, and
when he left the house between 3 and
5 o'clock in the morning, with his gun
and a dozen loaded shells, nothing was
thought of the matter, until he failed
to return. Several searching parties
have been scouring the mountains and
beaches ever since, but no trace of the
man has been discovered.
FOR MAINLAND VISITORS.
