All Furniture And Much Of Personal
Effects Go Up In Smoke
ROBERT JUDD SLIGHTLY INJURED
An accidental fire completely des
troyed the teachers' cottage at Camp
1, Fuuivene, between 3:30 and 4 o'clock
The building was completed at the
end of August, just in time for the
school opening, at a cost of someth'jig
like $3,000. It was well furnished. All
of the furniture nnd most of the priv
ate belongings of the teachers went
up in smoke.
Accounts differ somewhat as to the
orlg'n of the fire, but not ns to the
main fact that it came from a small
oil stove in the kitchen. The story,
as it has been gathered, is that the
employed Portuguese g'j'l named Em
ily Meyers found that the oil contain
er, just below and attached to the
burner of the stove, was nearly emp
ty. She took a small oil can and start
ed to fill the container, with the usual
result. When the blaze started it is
claimed that the girl dashed water on
it, causing it to spread.
At that juncture Robert Judd called
at the cottage to interview the young

in the Maui, and it now seems prob
able that nothing further will stand
in the way of the deal. The arrange
ment will not affect in any important

December 1, beginning at 2 o'clock.
