Hospital Section Is
Major Harvey L. Ross, head of the
hospital detachment of the 2nd. In
fantry, N. G. II., .of which the Maui
companies form a part, arrived on
Maui Saturday morning to inspect the
local hospital section, returning to
Honolulu Monday night. Major Ross Is
"Dr. Ross," of Kealakekua, one of the
best known physician of the big is
land. When the three regiments on
Maul, Hawaii and Kauai were cut
down, a change in the hospital ar
rangement was made necessary In
time, the major surgeons of the three
regiments retired from duty with the
Guard, and Dr. Ross was promoted
to take over the entire work.
When the training camp was opened
on Oahu, Dr. Ross volunteered for it,
in order to get a touch of real service
life. The coming encampment of the
Guard near Waialua, Oahu, made it
desirable that the hospital detach
ment of the N. G. II., be found in pro
per trim, hence the trip of the chief
here and to the other units under his
Major Ross stated while here that
there was much real alarm, particular
ly among families of officers, at the
garrisons of Oahu concerning the re
cent outbreak of typhoid fever there.
Medical officers were handling the
problem with great energy, however,
and the probabilities were that the
disease would soon be stamped out.

Maui Saturday morning and left again J
Wednesday night for the island of Ha

here was to interview such Russians

Plans To Get Ahead
Of Postage Advance
A funny thing happened at the Wai
luku postoffice yesterday morning. A
Japanese came in and wanted to
purchase a hundred dollars worth of
two-cent stamps. A sale of that size
was never heard of on Maui and the
postmaster was curious to know why
the man wanted so many stamps. The
wold-be purchaser explained that he
had seen in the paper that postage
would go up to three cents today, and
he wanted to save money by buying
stamps in advance.
Of course the matter was made
clear that postage would be three
cents anyway and that nothing could
be gained by buying two-cent stamps
in advance, so the man decided not

One Arrested For
Short Auto Lights
The campaign of the police against
improper lighting of automobiles,
which began last Saturday night, has
not been very fruitful so far, there
possibly having been a very commend
able effort to comply with the regu
lations following the warning publish
ed last week. One gentleman, how
ever, forgot or slipped up in some
way, and ran afoul of the police in
Wailuku. He was Mr, ISurdiek, of
