charge of hundreds of acres of rice

The Wainiha Hui held its re
gular annual meeting at the Hui
Hall, Wainiha, Thursday Sept. 7th.
Originally this Hui consisted of
ii cquai snares out tnrotign pro
cess of time, by transfer and in
heritance, these shares have been
variously combined and broken up,
until now there are over 200 partici
pants varying in ownership from
933 to a dozen shares. As these
minor interests run through all
kinds of irregular fractions the
calling of the roll and making up
the attendance is a matter of com, j
plicated mathematics, requiring a i
good deal of time, and no small
amount of patience and energy
On this particular occasion the
combined energies of the committee'
of 3 finally solved the problem and
reported an attendance of 56
549-2197 although everyone looked
wise, as though they understood
fully how this result was arrived
at, no one ventured to question it,
for fear he might be called upon to
make the fractional additions
Only the members of the committee
knew how uncertain the ground
was beneath the apparent accuracy
of these figures This being a
generous quorum, with a large
margin of safety, the Hui was now
declared to be duly in session for
all legitiuate business, prayer was
then offered by the president, who
rejoiced in the mercy of the Lord
who had brought together so many
full shares and so many small
pieces and who would surely hold
tnem all together in this annual
meeting in the spirit of unity and
courtesy as became brethren for
brethren they were though of va
Meantime the pig was in the imu,
a shapely mound, with steaming
cracks, and suggestive fragrance,
and during the prayer, the word
was passed quietly in through the
open door ua moa ka puaa,"
"the nig is cooked, adiourn!"
Whereupon a resolution was passed
to that effect and the ground was
cleared for action. Xot since the
Tower of Babel have mortals seen
such confusion nor such a
heterogeneous combination of pig
and poi and portliness.
After lunch there was a marked
falling off in the interest and a
marked reluctance in the resump
tion of business. Reports of the
officers showed the company affairs
to be in good condition. The
Treasurers report showed dividends

Sundry land allotments were re
ported favorably by the directors

Several new applications were dis
cussed, and amended, and approved
and condemned, with ever increas
ing warmth and volubility until
there was a hopeless tangle o f
acres and rods and perches and
poles, so that the whols matter
was finally referred back to the
directors, with power to act and
the door .was opened for fresh air
to clear the hall.

so carefully chosen.

A FRIGHTENED HORSE
About half past two o'clock
Thursday afternoon, a horse be
longing to Sugar Boiler Schultz,
and attached to a light sulky, be
came suddenly frightened and dash
ed down Main street toward Tun
Garden Island office which place,
iu spite of the efforts of the ' 'devil"
to stop him, he passed at a Nancy
Hank speed. As the frightened
animal passed Elite Avenue, John
Malina, the famous polo player,
sizing up the situation, charged
with his trusty lariat and succeeded
in securing a hold on one of the
fast fleeing legs. At this point
evidently John seemed more en
grossed with the possible fi v e
spot in store for him rather than
tlie business at hand, for as the
rope became taut, it slipped from
his hands and disappeared in the
trail of the pursued.
Nearly a block below Elite
Avenue, the horse connected with
the curbing, and came to a stand.
Malina came up with another rope
which he used to a better advan
tage as the horse was standing still.
When the horse was extricated from
the wreck, the damage sustained
was comparatively small, being a
very slight cut on one fore leg,
and a little burn on the right hind
hock, the latter resulting from the
rope in some manner becoming
rapped around it. The sulky was
slightly damaged, a shaft being
