One of the most attractive exhibits
at the Maul County Fair will be a
series of canvases painted by D. How
ard Hitchcock, dean of Hawaiian ar
tists. With one exception they are
paintings of Maul scenery, the fruits
of Mr. Hitchcock's summer camping
tour through the wonderland of Halea
kala and its magnificent gorges, Kau
po and the Keanae.
Five of the eight painting which he
will exhibit are mountain cloud effects
and these the artist considers his host
work. They are landscapes unlike
anyth'ng whh he or any other artist
has attempted, and are Imbued with
rare power and charm. He lias caught
the misty, filmy fog effects, soft shad
ows and vivid colorings of the splendid
"nnr..m!i one sers onlv from the
cloudwrapped summits at dawn.
A large canvas portrays thf view
icross the vivid blue channel through
the fleecy clouds hovering over Kau
no. with distant Island peaks fading
!nto the crimson horizon.
Another shows the summit looking
back from the first descent towards
Keanae, with the top of the great red
cone In the midst of the crater just
neeplng above the ruged volanic rims.
This canvas shows the rare color
tones of the mountain top under brill

Sunrise from the Poor of the crater
of Haleakala. across Kaupo. with Mau

soft and luminous tones, of rare
beauty and appeal.
The fifth cloud study from among

Then there are two Iao scenes, a
'r- oolorative study of ,the gorge
and crater, looking upward from the
base of the Needle; and a brilliant
study painted to show the view from
out the gloomy cloud crowned gorge
'.nto the sunshine. It is a study of
lipM effects from within the shadow.
The remaining canvas which Mr.
Hitchcock will exhibit at Wailuku is
his "Daylight View of K'lauoa," a
scene whloh he has only recently com
pleted, painted from studies made at
the Volcano last winter. The snow
capped summit of Mauna Loa against
the clouds forms the background of
the flaming canvas cauldron.
These canvases have nothing of the
conventional in them. They exhibit
rare depth of tone and mastery of
color, only capable of artistic expres
sion by one who has absorbed the spir
it of Hawaii through long and con
stant association and study.
Mr. Hitchcock will not hold an ex
hibition of his work this season and
so those who wish to enjoy lite beaut
iful work will find an added reason
for visiting Maui ten days hence, to
see Howard Hitchcock's nainttnes.

Supervisor Fleming believes that
we may expect a harder winter, both
here and in states, than usual. He
bases his prediction on the large num
ber of wild geese and ducks which are
now in the Islands. "They began
coming south sooner than ever before.
Many of them are very young birds
and have been picked up exhausted
in the fields by my men, where they
have fallen, worn out from their long
flight. Wild game la the best of

with more than usual emphasis.
