From the above, you will see that
our expenses for the first three
months arter we took the roads over

our re-crowning practically every

the Haiku Fruit & Packing Company
to float enough bonds to macadamize
the belt road as far as Ulumaki, and
reimburse the Haiku Fruit & Pack

spend $8,400.00 for 1918, which would
be at the rate of $7'0.00 per month

The roads in this district are of
euch vital importance and are so very
necessary in building up the district,
that I hope you will give these re

Shock Wa Too Severe
Once there was a women who mov
ed into an apartment and found ev
erything swept and scrubbed and in
clean as if she had done it herself.
The shock left her lying helpless on
the floor, but soon she managed to
drag herself to the telephone, where
her strength fast ebping away, she
g:ve central a number. Presently a
voice came over the telephone. "I
just wanted to tell you," said the
suffering woman, "how thankful I am
to find the apartment, in such lovely
condition. You are one in a million,
and I shall never forget "
There was a sudden clatter at the
other end of the linn. The woman
who had just moved out of the apart
ment fell to the floor with a crash,
tearing the telephone connections
from their fastenings. She had swoon
ed, for tho she had cleaned apart
ments annually since her wedding-day
no succeeding tenant had ever admit
ted it before.
They met in the hospital three
weeks later, In a ward marked 'Quiet.'
Both recovered slowly and whiled
away the long hours getting acquaint
ed. They became friends such good
friends, indeed, that they have cancel
ed their leases, broken up housekeep
ing, and have moved their husbands off
to a family hotel, in order that they
may be together forever and forever.

B. C. does that very thing builds
up your body and makes it stronger
than the ailments that assail it and
they are beaten and utterly routed,
and health is the result. That's
why rheumatism, blood impurities,

way to an extended course ot B. B.

and the body vibrates with health.
The extraordinary merit of B. B. C.

The exact date when this pioneer
cabin was built is not definitely known
but it is the opinion of pioneers that
it was erected in 1817 within the pio
neer fort by those who first entered
Salt Lake valley. In early days, be
cause of danger from Indians, all
houses were placed within this pione
er fort. It was not until 1849 that it
was deemed safe for settlers to reside
without the enclosure. The interior
of the cabin has been preserved, in
