RARE ANIMAL COLLECTION FOR
FAIR MENAGERIE IS GROWING
Cameron Successful In Getting Attractions For Children
Now Has Daisy, A Monkey And Three Water
Buffalo Still Looking For Talking Birds
F. B. Cameron, the Maui County
manager, is going to be the most pop
ular man on Maul with the "kiddles"
Mexico, and then adds, laughingly,
on November 30, December 1 and 2
if he keeps on adding to the fair
menagerie, as he has during the past
Not content with acquisition of
Daisy, the Honolulu baby elephant,
he started out this week to see it he
could not find something that would
serve to interest the hundreds of
children just as greatly, for he realiz
ed that all of them, especially on
children's dav, would not be able to
see and ride Daisy at the same time.
Cameron felt that he had somewhat
succeeded when he heard of three
water buffaloes on a r'.ce plantation
away up one of tho YVsihel valleys.
The fair manager started for the rice
plantation and without a great deal
of trouble convinced the Chinese
proprietor that he owed it to the youth
of Maui to have those buffaloes on
exhibition at the fair.
Now in parts of the islands water
buffaloes are a common sight, but In
others they are as rare as are
elephants. Such is the., case In most
parts of Maui, so Daisy is going to have
Competition to hold first place in the
affections of the younger visitors at
the fair. And especially is this so rs

Plantation Man Is accompanied By
California Newspaper Man Who
Is Son In Law Of C.B.Wells
"Some one has been knocking the
Great Northern. She Is as steady as
a big hotel," declares H. B. Penhallow,
manager of the Wailuku plantation,
who waa a returning passenger on
that vessel from the mainland, where
he has been for the last six weeks on
a pleasure trip. Penhallow made this
remark, as for some unknown- rea
son, U had been repeatedly stated on
Maul that the Great Northern was not
a comfortable vessel upon which to
C. B. Fowler, the business manager
of the San Francisco Chron
icle, accompanied Penhallow back to
the islands and was his guest In Wai
luku for several days, during which
time the California newspaper man
had an opportunity to see how a great
plantation is conducted. Fowler is
the son-in-law of C. B. Wells, former
ly manager of the Wailuku plantation.
Penhallow was In Los Angeles on
election night, the night before the
Great Northern sailed for the islands.
Ho said he went to the Burba nk
theater to watch the election returns.
It amused him that when presidential
returns were given there would be
but Blight applause, but as soon as the
returns from some "wet" county were
flashed on the screen there would bo
a great uproar.
reuhallow says he paid a visit to
Mexico, and then adds, laughingly.
"But I didn't go very far in."
That the Oriental parade is to be
one of the interesting fair attractions
was made evident by statements of the
members of the Japanese committee
at the regular Thursday meeting of the
various fair committees held in the
Town Hall yesterday afternoon. , It.
was stated that more than a thousand
Japanese would take part In the
parade and that some 'of the entries
would be unusually unique, and ethers
HAWAIIAN BAND IS
COMING TO FAIR
Definite assurance has been
received that the Hawaiian band
of Honolulu is to be here for

county show. When a request
was made to the Honolulu peo
ple for the band it was readily
granted, and the bandsmen
heard the news that they were'
to come to Maui with evident
satisfaction. There are thirty
four pieces in the Honolulu band
and it will add greatly to the
entertainment and amusement
for the fair, especially for the
dances and parades. The bands
men will arrive in Lahaina on
Wednesday afternoon, preceding
Thanksgiving Day, and remain
in Wailuku until Saturday eve

Cameron says: "Do you know, I nev

that keikl got my eyes and I watched
its antics for half an hour." Now any
one, who knows just how busy the
fair manager is these days, will ap
preciate that the baby buffalo must be
worth watching, if he spent thirty
minutes doing so.
The securing of the buffalo whetted
Cameron's appetite and he started on
a search for more strange and amus
ing animalstolnterest the children. He
succeeded, for he remembered' that
Miss Irene Altken has a very old and
friendly monkey, whirh delights in cut

during which she saw the many
changes of government and customs
of the people in the Hawaiian Islands,
Mrs. K. Kuhlhewa died In Hana the
early part of this week. She was de

her husband for twenty-five years,
