THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1917.
On The Other Islands
Judge Wise of Ililo returned on the
last Maul with a remarkable collec
tion ol fish and fowl, which will add
greatly to the edibles of these Islands
should any of them care enough for
the climate to go to housekeeping.
The collection was obtained through
the courtesy of the California State
Fish nnd Food Commission and con
sists of striped bass, California crabs,
and teal ducks. There are also a
few sea gulls, Mich as haunt San Fran
Fortunately for Mrs. Tsumeijo No
garni, who with a friend was gather
ing shellfish on the rocks at Paau
hau, the boat crew of the Niihau were
fit work at the landing. A tremcdous
wave swept Mrs. Nogami off her feet,
and out into the briny, but her friend
who managed to hang on to a rock,
by her screams attracted the attention
of the sailors. They immediately
headed for the spot and saved the
drowning woman. The purser ad
ministered first aid and the woman
was soon all right.
A Relic Of The Past
An interesting curiosity, in the i
shape of an old piano, was unearth
ed at Kapaa by Mr. 13ergstrom a few
days ago. It once belonged to Kanoa,
the last Hawaiian governor of Kauai
who lived at Niumalu where the Trow
bridges now are.
The frame is of solid-rose-wood
throughout not veneered as are the
modern pianos. It has a hinged key
board that folds up like a writing
de.ik and when in that position it re
sembles the folding bed that one finds
in the apartment homes of city dwel
lers. A fret work front and two carved
and bracketed brass candle stick
holders add to its quatntness.
The keys are veneered with ivory
that has yellowed with age. Un
like the modern keys, there is no
ivory facing. Instead, one sees the
irregular projections of the wood
foundation that resemble the edges
of tiny shelves.
Taking out the front, it seen to
have the "bird cage" action two uni
son now in use. Therefore it has less
volume, but more sweetness of tone;
being more like a stringed instrument,
or better still like the old fashioned
spinet our great grand mothers played.
The scale is very unique. What we
now call B is designated H.; while
A sharp corresponds to our B.
The rest of the scale is similar to
ours. It is an old German make
the words "Kornang and Mollcr"
"Kiohenkaun," beautifully inlaid in
brass, add the finishing touch of
It is certainly well worth seeing
and one wishes it might be housed in
some historical society building on
No doubt there are Kamaainas here
who could give us the history of this
interesting relic of a by-gone age.
,Y. M. I. Team Off To Valley
Isle October 12
When the Maui baseball tossers
rim up against the next bunch of Ililo
players they will wonder what has
struck them. The Japanese Athletics
who were beaten three out of four
games will be avenged, and the Y. M.
I. team, the champions of the Island
of Hawaii, will be the boys to do the
avenging stunt. They are going to
Maui October 12 and will open the
ball at Wailuku next day. Goodnight
The Y. M. I. team will consist of
the regular lineup and three or four
subs who may come in handy if any
of the boys get hurt on the fast, slip
pery diamond at Wailuku.
The local team should wrest the
honors from the Maui bunch. The
playing of the nine should also open
the eyes of the Mauians as to what
Ililo can produce in the ball tossing
line. The games with the Japanese
nine were close enough as ball games
go now-a-days but, when the cham
pions of this island get into action
there is going to be some tall work
done at the expense of the Valley Isl
anders. The team will take along a press
agent, so the news of tue games
should reach Ililo well on time and
the lacal fans won't have to wait until
the return of the players to learn the
way things went on Maul. Hawaii
Four Prisoners Have Escaped
From the Keamoku Prison Camp,
four men have recently escaped. One
of them is the man who stole Captain
Mosber's automobile some time ago.
He was looked upon as such a bad
egg that he was accommodated with
an "Oregon Boot" which article is
supposed to anchor any kind of a man
and prevent him from escaping for
any length of time. This particular
criminal had been heard to declare

According to information received
from Honolulu there are still some ap
pointments to be made. Some of the
leachtrs have been delayed on the
Makura which was late, and did not
arrive until the 12th instant. As is
usual, there are a few vacancies due
to sudden resignations at the lastdurin.; the absence of Will. J. Cooper

very satisfactory, as out of the
nine bundled and fifty teachers em
ployed by ihe department, only about
a dozen positions are unavoidably

heavy steel "boot" and that he would
escape. He did so and has not been
heard from since.
Then three Filipinos, all from Hono
lulu prison, tired of road work and
decided to escape. They therefore
skipped out on Tuesday evening last
and have not been or heard of since.
The Filipinos are strangers to this
island, so it is expected that they will
soon be in the toils again. Otherwise
a search of the country-side will be
made lor the men. It is fancied, how
ever, that when the men begin to in
quire as to where (hey are and what
part of the island they are on, the
people they queslion will gei wise and
report the matter to the police. Ha

Killed In Action
(Continued from Page One.)
Then Lieutenant Mackintosh was hit
again, and lay unconscious for a few
minutes. The men dragged him to
safety, and, propped up against a dug
out, ho continued to direct the opera
tions. Soon he saw that if the line
was to be held it was necessary to
seize the part of the trench still held
by the enemy. Limping painfully, he
made his way out of that part of the
trench and led a file of the unbound
ed men against the post it was
necessary to rush. It was the strangest
sight you ever saw. A doubly wound
ed man, with the nervous twitching of
his face telling the agony he was en
during, toiling painfully along and en
couraging his men as he went. The
little band kept on their way, and
rushed the position, from which they
drove about ten times their own num
ber of the enemy. It was in the
moment of success that Lieutenant
Mackintosh fell. He tried to get up
again and go with the men into the
trench from which they had driven
the enemy, but he was then too weak
from loss of blood to do so. We could
see he was in great pain. He would
not hear of any of us assisting him
until he saw the position was safe,
and whenever we suggested aiding
him, he ordered us away. When our
troops were again in possession of the
whole ground, without fear of the
enemy getting it back, he consented
to bd moved. He was one of the
bravest. The men would have follow
ed him, anywhere, at any time. He
was always thinking of the men and
did all he could to make things easy
for them. He was not the sort to risk
our lives unnecessarily and he never

Three o'clock was the very earliest
the man could get up to the store,
says the N. Y. Globe, so his wife asked
him to meet her then.
"I don't know in what department
I shall be at that time," she said, "but
just before three o'clock I will tele
phone to the clerk at the information
bureau near the main entrance, and
if you will step over and ask him he
will tell you where I am."
At two minutes past three the man
sought information as to the where
abouts of his wife.
"I have a message," said the clerk,
"from a woman who said her husband
would inquire for her about three
o'clock. Maybe it is for you. She
said to tell you she had gone to Blank's
store, over on Sixth avenue, to finish
shopping, because the clerks in this
store are impudent, the place is ill
ventilated, and she could not find any
thing she wanted here, anyhow, and
never has been able to find anything
here, and this is positively the last
time she will ever try to find anything
here. Of course, that might not have
been your wife "

Government Warns Of Poison Plasters
Warning to the American people to

mans have been engaged in the dis

investigating the case to the fullest
Samples of court plaster said to
have been poisoned are being analyzed

Here is a statement issued to-day
by William C. Fittes, Assistant Attor
ney General, in the absence of Thomas
W, Gregory, Attorney General:
"While the Department of Justice
does not take a sensational view of
the reports indicating a possible en
emy activity in the dissemination of
poisoned sticking, or court plaster,
there has been enough officially re
ported on the subject to warrant a
thorough investigation both as to the
manner of distribution and the germs
in the plasters.
"Consequently, the samples in hand
are being analytically examined both
in Washington and in a Western city.
Pending further information, it would
be well for the consuming public to
use no remedies of this kind, except
those obtained from approved sources
of supply." Hawaii Independent.
