PITY THE POOR LIONS.
Hunter In Africa Actually Kick tha
Brute Out of Their Way.
A globe trotter and a hunter, by
nam Percy 8t an hope, la an English
man who may or may not hare a sense
of humor. Here Is what he said In
New York recently about lion hunting
"You bear them talk of lion hunting
in Africa aa though It were the king of
porta. It'i a beastly shnme the way
they treat the poor beasts. Why, when
I was out In British East Africa two
year ago there was a movement on
foot to punish lion hunters for cruelty
to animals. In fact, they were serious
ly taking up the question with the
"The lives of the poor Nona are being
made a burden to them. I can remem
ber when the lions would come In out
of tho Jungle and alt on the platform
of the railway stations, and some of
those cruel Englishmen actually booted
the beasts out of the way. Think of
It, the cruelty of It all!
"There being no foxoa available, the
sportsmen out In those part have a
habit of stirring up a lion and pursuing
the poor beast with whoops and yells
until It drops dead of exhaustion and
actual fright The poor beasts have
been bo terrorized that when they see
a white man they whimper from fright.
This fear shortens the life of the lions,
and unless drastic steps are taken to
put a stop to the cruelty there won't
be any of the animals left In Africa."

The Greeks and the Romans never
prescribed chilling silence at funerals.
On the contrary, they regarded tbem
as festivals and entertainments and
chose these occurrences for the produc
tions of their great plays. Every com

a funeral celebration.
Safety of Principal Is Mor Essential
Than Big Return.
First, here is a quotutlon from
"Muny fortunes have been innde and
wany more will be iund through wixe
Investments. Muny fortune are loHt,
too, through unwise Investuieuta. But
thrifty habits and consultlug wltb ex
perienced persons like cunsurvntive
bankers will give one the wisdom nec
essary to. handle money wisely."
Second, I set down a quotation from
the advertisement of a wise and con
servative Investment banker:
. "In lending or Investing money a I',
possible care should be taken to gourd
against hasty or Impulsive declslou.
Every endeavor should be made to as
semble such reliable information as
will permit of the exercise of Intelli
gent judgment. The man who assume
this attitude toward all Investment
propositions comes to have an increas
ing regard for the element of conserva
tism, and U ordinarily the first man te
Beek the co-operation of investment ex
perts." Conservatism In investment means,
first of all, keeping the principal sum
safe. What profits It to get 7 or 8
per cent a year on your mouey for
three or four years If at the end of
that time misfortune of any sort over
takes the company you Invested in to
such an extent that you would find
what you have paid $100 for la worth
only $757 And when you leave the
road of conservatism In putting your
money out to work this Is exactly the
experience you are likely to have.
Better keep your money in the sav
ings bank, where It will earn about 4
per cent and where, if you wish. Inter
est will be compounded, until you are
positively certain of the soundness of
the investment advice you receive.
Adding to the saved sum In a savings
bank, too. Is a mighty good way to
fasten the thrift habit upon yourself.
Choose as your first adviser In invest
ment some one who has selected In
vestments for the savings bunk. From
him learn what the elements of sound
Investment are. Go slow 1 John M

Accident Board Investigation Held In
Two Kahului Cases Board Also
Finds Against Olowalu Filipino
That neither of the deceased empl
oyees was under the influence of
liquor at the time he met his death;
and further that both were
killed while in the regular course of
their employment, was the finding of
Hie committee of arbitration of the
Maul industrial accident board, after
'nvestigatlon of the cases of Kuma
kichi Aklyama and Tomikl Urata.
The committee consisted of W. H.
Field, chairman, S. S. Kobayashi, and
D. C. Lindsay, the last two named
represFntin-i tho dependents of the
deceased employees, and the employ
ers respect ivoy. The investigation of
the two casrs was held Jointly at Ka
hului on last Monday. Akiyama was
the driver for J. OnishI, who was kill
ed on August 2G, 1916, when his horse
ran away between Puunene and Ka
hului. Ho is survived by a wife and
four children. Urata, a clerk for the
Japanese Mercantile Company, was
struck by an automobile at Kahului
on November 4, last, and died from a
fractured skull. He leaves a wife.
The Employers' Liability Assurance
Corporation, with which both employ
ers carried indemnity insurance, de
manded the arbiration, but was unable
to substantiate either of the two con
ditions that would relieve them of re
sponsibility for indemnifying the de
pendents in either instance.
Olowalu Case Settled
Adopting the report of an arbitra
tion committee, and of Dr. William
Osmers, called to professionally exa
mine the case, the accident board at
its meeting last week disposed finally
of the case of the Filipino, Evaristo
Ramos, who was hurt in the back in
a train wreck on the Olowalu Planta
tion, last May. The man was treated
for several months in the Lahaina
hospital, and although showing no
signs of the Injury, still persisted that
he was still suffering from it During
the time the treatment was in progress
some of his friends wrote to the governor-general
of the Philippines de
clarng that the man had been neglect
ed and his case denied attention of the
accident board. The matter was re
ferred to the governor of Hawaii, and
the finding of the arbitration board,,
last week, and of the physician who
kept the man under observation for
over a week tn the Malulani Hospital,
Wailuku, was to effect that he was
not suffering from result of the ac
The man, however, was apparently
neither sound bodily or mentally, but
from other causes than the accident.
