offlce on March 1st., the carrier to go
over the route Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays, provided written agree
ments to put up approved mail boxes
are signed by the people living along
the route. The Haiku postmaster
has blank forms for this purpose, and
persons living along the route should
go to the Haiku postofflce as soon as
possible and sign agreements to put
To get the boxes at the lowest cost
the Haiku postmaster will order them
to be shipped from the coast all at
one time. The small boxes are large
enough for letters and magazines and
will cost about $1.50 delivered at
Haiku. The large boxes, for letters,
magazines and packages, will cost
about $3. Patrons are expected to
pay for whichever box they want at
the time of signing the agreement to
put up a box.
" The cost of the box is all that the
patron on a rural carrier route ever
pays for the service. This route from
Haiku will cost the government $600,

Giants Defeat Beauts
In First Paia Game
The first games in the Paia Winter
i Baseball League series were played
at Paia last Sunday afternoon, and
attracted a very large crowd of en
thusiastic fans. There were no
charges for admission.
Father Francis was in general
charge, and threw the first ball over
the plate. Mr. F. P. Rosecrans was
to have caught, but was not able to
be present at the time, so Sam Kaleo
took his place. Henry Robinson
swung the willow.
The first game was between the
Filipino and All Japanese . team and
was quite sharply contested, although
a trifle one sided. The score at the
end was 7 to 1 in favor of the Jap
anese. The big game of the day was be
tween Medeiros' Beauts and the
Giants. This was quite exciting.
Dutra, of Wailuku, pitched for the
Beauts un,til the last inning when he
was obliged to retire. The score
was then tied, 3 to 3. A new pitcher
was put in, and the Giants found
him for two runs, giving them the
game, the score being 5 to 3.
The start of the series was very
promising and undoubtedly great in
terest will be taken In it. The con
test Is for a silver cup being put by
the Paia Store.
There will be another game next
Japanese Is Drowned
In Sea At Kahului
The body of Sunkuro Tokuhisa,
aged 45, stevedore, of Kahului, was
found floating in the saa between the
beach road and Kahului wharf at an
early hour this morning.
Dr. Wm. Osmers examined the
corpse and, he finding no marks of vio
lence, the police decided not to hold
an inquest, suicide evidently being
the cause of death.
Tokuhisa had been ailing a long
time and was under treatment of Dr.
Ohata, of Wailuku. Last night he
was very restless and was waited up
on by his wife until she fell asleep
at about 12 o'clock. About 2 o'clock
the woman woke up to discover that
her husband was not there. She
gave the alarm and a search was in
stituted, but without result until this
morning, when the body was found,

like the person living in the city, pays
nothing for the service but the first
cost of a box.
This rural route reaching into the
farm section opens a fine opportunity
for the town people of Maui to get
fresh eggs and other farm produce
shipped to them at a very small cost
for postage, and gives the farmer the
mail service of a city dweller.
People living away from the route
may put up a box anywhere along
the road and the rural carrier will
attend to their mail the same as
though they lived near the road.
The route runs as follows: From
Haiku postofflce across the home
stead crossroad to Cooper's corner,
then down the W. Kuiaha road to the
belt road at Wilbur's, then along the
belt road to the E. Kuiaha road, and
up same to the winery, then to
wards Kokomo to Aheong's, then
down the W. Kuiaha road to Cooper's
corner again and back across the
homestead crossroad to the Manning
road at White's corner, then up this
road to Kokomo and down past
Aiken's to the Haiku postofflce
about 20 miles.

Filipino Is Buried
Under Tons Of Sugar
An unusual accident happened at
the new sugar flume of the Kaeleku
Sugar Co., Hana district, Monday af
ternoon, but fortunately no one was
killed and only one man injured.
It appears that while men were
working around under it, the bottom
of the box gave way and several tons
of sugar came down on them. One
man, a Filipino, was completely
buried, and it took twenty men about
four minutes to dig him out. When
brought to the air he was almost
suffocated. The doctor happened to
be near and rushed the fellow to the
hospital where he received prompt
treatment. The next day he was out
The man has since been released
from the hospital, none the worse for
his experience of being buried alive
in a mass of sweetness. He will pro
bably not care for sugar In his coffee,
however, in a long time to come.

a "rough house," etc.. so the mother-

searched it was found that she had
