Failure of the board of public in

thing of a hornet's nest on the Garden
Island, according to reports. Several
petitions are said to be in circulation
asking for the reinstatement of the
Browns. "The best interest of the

which has been offered by the school
board. Miss Etta Lee was appointed
to succeed as principal of the Waimea

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER
With the opening of the retail de
partment at the marketing division
the demand for fresh Island eggs and
butter has increased.
The market Is fairly well supplied
with vegetables with the exception of
cabbage, sweet corn and sweet pota
toes which are bringing exceedingly
good prices. During the week there
has been an unusually large quantity
of Island cantaloupes come into the
market from Oahu, bringing very good
prices. New Island Irish potatoes are
in great demand and receipts are light.
From now on the division should be
able to dispose of much larger quan
tities of Island products of all kinds.
The retail sales of the past two days
have been very encouraging. People
who have been in the habit of order
ing their vegetables and meats over
the phone and having them delivered
are now coming to the market in
person and carrying home their pur
chases with them. In this way they
get better merchandise at lower pric

Energy In the 8un.
At the distance of the earth from
It (rO,0UO,K0 miles), the hent energy
yearly expended by the sun Is as great
in amount as would be produced by
the burning of sixty-six globes of the
best nnthrnclte coal, each ns heavy as
the earth, or 5,340 such globes, each
equal in weight to the moon. But
the greater part of this energy is, as
far as we can see, expended upon
empty space because, excopt where a
planetary body is interposed in tho
path of the rays, there Is nothing for
them to net upon. Only about two-thousniid-uillllontu
of the sun's radlnnt
energy is Intercepted by the earth and
only about 0110 two-hundred-and-twen-ty-flve-niilllonth
by all the planets to
gether. This makes the sun look like
a gigantic spendthrift, but if he did not
radiato in every direction he would not
be seen from distant space; he would
not be a star among the stars, and who
can say that what ho expends to make
himself known and to maintain his
rank in the universe, is not as well
spent as the gratuities that be flings
to his planets. Garrett P. Serviss in
How to Win.
This is an age of specialization, my
boy, ond the only men who succeed in
a big way are those who pick out some
particular line of work and live with
it until they get to know more about
it than most other fellows. Concen
tration, consistent and persistent effort
in one direction is the surest road to
success. You'll never win in a big
way except accidentally If you scat
ter your energies. The best steam
engine in the world would race itself
to ruin without its governor. Keep
your mind on your Job, specialize in
your particular business and try to
know as much about it as the man
who created it, and, barring misfor
tune, you'll make more out of that
knowledge thnu you will out of any
chance success outside of your busl.

STORIES OF LISZT
How the Famous Master Played
. to a Hidden Audience.
A SURPRISE AT THE FINISH.
Fop a Moment It Filled the Hoetees
and Company With Diemay, but
Proved a Cats of All'e Well That
tnde Well A Snub For a Taotleee
Liszt resented people counting on his
playing. When Baroness K. inveigled
him Into promising to take tea with
her, because ho know her father, she,
on his accepting, invited a lot of
friends, holding out hopes that Liszt
would play. She pushed the piano
into the middle of the room no one
could have possibly failed to see it
Every one was on the qui vlve when
Liszt arrived and breathless with an
ticipation. Liszt, who had had ninny
surprises of this sort, I Imagine, saw
the situation at a glance. After several
people hud been presented to him.
Liszt, with his most captivating smile,
said to tho hostess:
"Madam, where is your piano?" and
looked all about for the instrument
though it was within au inch of his
'Oh, monselgneurl Would you, really
?" advancing toward the piano,
triumphantly. "You are too kind. I
never should have dared to nsk you."
And, waving her hand toward it,
"Ilero is the piano!"
"Ah, yes," said Liszt who dearly
loves a Joke, "I wished to put my hat
Very crestfallen, but still undnunted,
the tactless baroness cried, "But,
monselgneur, you will not refuse, if
only to play n scale merely to touch
the piano I"
But Liszt, ns unkind ns she was tact
less, answered, coldly: "Madam. I
never play my scales in the nfternoon."
and turned his back on her nnd talked
with Madam Ilelbtg.
On another occasion Liszt wrote to
me that he would bring some of his
songs to try over at 5 o'clock. I In
close his letter. What a chance, thought
I, for mo to give pleasure to some of
my friends who I knew were longing
to see him. Although ho had said entre
nous in his letter, and I knew that ho
renlly wonted to look through the songs
alone with me. I could not resist the
temptation though It was such rank
disobedience and said to them:
"Liszt Is coming to me at 5 o'clock.
If you would like to hear him, and
consent to be hidden behind a door, I
will Invite you."
They nil accepted with ropture and
wero assembled In tho llttlo salon bo
fore the time appointed. Tho door was
left open nnd a largo screen placed
Johan fetched Liszt in our carriage,
as ho always does. I received him and
the book of "Lleder," which ho brought
with him. (Only Johan nud Nina were
present.) no opened the book at "Com
ment disalent lis?" one of his most
beautiful songs, which hns an exquisite
but very dllllcult accompaniment ne
played with folry fingers, nnd we went
over It several times. I could see the
screen swerving nnd waving about
but Liszt's back was turned, so ho
could not seo it.
After wo had finished tea was served,
and then ho said, "Have you benrd my
"Yes," I said, and added, "but not
"Well," he said, "I will piny it for
you. Your piano is much bettor than
tho one I have. It is a pleasure to
play on it"
The screen, now alive with emotion,
almost tipped over. After "Rlgoletto"
he played "Los Soirees do Vlenne,"
and this time the screen actually did
topple over and exposed to view the
group of bndly frightened ladles hud
dled behind it I shuddered to think
how the master would take this hor
He took It better than I expected
In fact, he laughed outright The la
dles came forward and wero presented
to him and were delighted. I am sure
that Liszt was, too; ot any rate, he
laughed so much at my ruse and con
trition that -tho tears rolled down hU
cheeks. He wiped tliem away with
his pocket handkerchief, which had an
embroidered 1''. L. In tho corner. This
