The wayward character of the
lillle river, winding hither and yon.
and never seeming to get anywhere,
this was its crowning virtue, since
lint-- il controlled more land: no
corner of any field was far away
from the line of traffic. In the
same way the manufactured sugar
was conveyed to the landing, or to
the schooner in, the hay, one huge
barge being housed in, and widely
known and admired as "The Ark."
Those were palmy days along the
little river, days of life and action;
I he tall hricU chimney rolling out
volumes of smoke, clouds of steam
going up from the open evaporators,
llie mill whistle crying impatiently
for cane, the rattle of the big spur
wheels running free when the feed
was light, the groan and whine of
the rollers when the feed was heavy,
the crackling of whips anil blas
pheming of drivers belaboring the
straining oxen, the treble of femi
nine voices and bantering laughter
on washing day along the banks
and far awav the musical ringing
of the cane knives in the cultint
field. All this was new and Avon
dcrful, and many simple folk came
irom afar to see the new era at I la
It seems somewhat strange that
llanalei, destined in a special way
to chronicle the early success ol
sugar, was also destined to sec its
early failure. While other districts
far less favored, apparently, at the
start, forged ahead anil attained t
a" phenomenal prosperity, llanalei
fell into the rear and finally, wide
the shadow of the McKinlcy bill, fell
out altogether, so that now sugar i

problem of crossings for such
peaceful river was a very simpl
one. here clothing cut no tigurc
and every one could swim, it was
not even necessary to stick by the

vent of the horse, and the more ex

clothing grew finer, and j.iare legs
gave place to shoes and Mockings,
these crossings made way for fer

There's signs of. and for PRIMO
everywhere. No matter what lodge
you belong to there's a 'magic sign
which, when seen by bar-boy or waiter,
will result in your being served with a
ing, and many tentative attempts
and failures, could they be brought
to cross it. And when at length the
scow swung loose from the hank
with a jar, and rocked menacingly
over the dark water, sometimes a
team would be so tilled with terror
that they would holt bodily forward
over the open end of the scow, ve
hicle, driver and all.
Jn the heyday of the sugar pros
perity it was felt that the scow was
too medieval for so progressive an
age, st) it was relegated to the scrap
heap, and a double truss bridge,
with a central stone pier, as built,
just mauka uf the mill; and this
for a brief period met the require
ments of the growing traffic. J'.ut
a winter storm of unusual violence
brought down from the mountains
such a roaring torrent as under
mined the pier and abutments, and
demolished the superstructure, car
rying it off to sea. and incidentally
so tilling the valley with a sense of

k it it would be tempting Providcnci
to renew the bridge. So the scow
was dragged out of the bushes, re-
