We reached Hamburg July 9
and went to the Atlantic hotel

built to catch the American tourist
and give him the minimum amount
of comfort for the maximum
amount of gold. Here is a trick

places they had thrown the frozen
oranges away, and it was a sight
to see the huge mountains of fine
vellow fruit, vet every orange as
dry as an unmoistened sponge
They were having the expense of
picking the fruit, and yet it was
but swear each time never to do
again. The Atlantic and Adlun are
good hotels to avoid.
AN AMUSING EXPERIENCE.
I had an amusing experience at
the later. After a dinner I had them
bring the bill, and, adding up the
absolutely worthless. The man who total (a wise precaution in Europe)
had been realizing a dividend of
$60,000 found himself suddenly
AWAY TO THE EAST.
From Redlands we went via the
Pacific Express through a barren
and cheerlf-ss country till we reach
ed Salt Lake City, and thence on
to Chicago. From the latter city,
we went to Boston via the "20th.
Century . Limited a very fine
train. At Boston we participated
in the Class-Day exercises of the
graduating class at Haivard, and
by the courtesy of Messrs. Alan
AUTO BONNET AND MOURNING HAT.
This charming blouse of cream shoulder and from which fell the
chautillv lace was easily the pret-1 slightly gathered sleeve. At the
tie ond mrmt nractical of a num-! hand a strap of tangerine satin
ber of beautiful designs exhibited' held by buttons confined the full
recently. A crcssed band of lace
insertion occupied the center front
merging into tabs of the same
which reached the point of the
ness to wrist size. Similar straps
loosely hung decorated the blouse
above a flat girdle of tangerine
I found that they had made the
total 20 marks more than was cor
rect so I asked the waiter to add
it up, and he discovered the same
mistake. Whereupon, the woman
at the desk remarked: "Yes, I have
also noticed it." "Yes.'. I replied .
and I also noticed that you did
not tell me." So I gave them the
exact amount of the corrected bill,
but told them they could keep the
20 marks as a tip. "
OFF TO NORWAY.
We left Berlin July 26 for Nor
way. A t Sasnitz they put the
Lowrey and Paul Hollister partook whole train on board a large steam-
of two splendid spreads, or luaus, er and after a pleasant voyage on
and enjoyed many of the exercises.
SAW GREAT BALL GAME.
We also saw the ball game be
tween the Harvard and Yale teams,
and in the 14th inning, with two
men on bases, we witnessed the
feat o f the Harvard batter in
knocking a complete home run-
ins hit being the longest ever
witnessed on that field. In fact,
after the Yale center - fielder had
run after the ball as long as he
could, he called to a small boy,
who was down by the river bank,
to kindly relay it back to him, and
by the time he got it to the pitcher
nearly everybody was on the field
celebrating the victory.
WAS HOTTER THAN KEKA
From Boston we dropped back
to New York and there struck some
very hot weather. Lihue people
the North Sea for four hours, we
came in sight of the rigid, granite-
lined coast of Scandinavia, which
was very different from the sandy
plains of Germany, and with the
numerous ships of the Baltic trade
passing by, made a verv beautiful
picture On our way from Tulle
borg to Chnstiania we had the
pleasure of spending our first night
in i European sleeping car on the
train d e luxe tnev may be it
luxe for Europe, but crive me a
Pullman every time. The conductor
makes up the beds, and when you
find no sheet and ask him why,
he calmly informs you that a sheet
is 25 cents extra! So you pay your
quarter and you get your sheet,
whicli lie graciously smoothes out
for you in you bunk.

OTHER PLACES VISITED.
rrom Chnstiania we went to
Bergen, over the famous Tellemark
route, over the Kaukili Pass and
toria, a big, fine steamer of 25,000 down and up some of the famous
tons, belonging to the Hamburg-
America line a n d had a very
pleasant voyage over. Amour the
passengers was Mr. Roval Annind
sen, the celebrated South-Pole ex
plorer, and we made his acquaint
ance the second dav out through a
mutual friend (an old Harvard
friend of mine); and we had a most
interesting time, listening to tales
of South Polar travels.
TOAST TO THE PRESIDENT.
On the Fourth of Julv we had a
grand dinner, exercises and
winding roads. The old town of
Bergen was interesting and the
water falls exquisite. The Fjoids,
with the snow capped mountains
around, made beautiful pictures.
At Balholm we visited the large
monument of Fritjof, presented to
the Norwegian people by the Em
peror of Germany. Strange to say
the Norwegian people were very
indignant about this monument.
The old fishermen told me the

Norway is a delighted place in
which to spend the Summer, but
the hotels are rather backward and
lacking in what we of Kauai con
sider absolute necessities.
BACK TO CHRISTIANIA.
Drifting back to Christiania,
through Valders, we spend three
weeks at a famous Norwegian bath
ing place called Hauko Island. The
water was rather cold, but they
had some baths made from stewed
pine - needles and mud dug u p
from the bottom of the bay. They
said it was good for rheumatism
and gout, but having neither I can
not certify as to their virtues.
CHRISTIANIA TO STOCK
HOLM. From Christiania w e went to
Stockholm, Sweden, and spent
four days there; but it was already
October and the weather was get
ting cold and to go sight -seeing
in the freezing weather is not the
best. Still we managed to see the
Stadium, where Duke Kahanamo
ku surprised the Old World, and
many of the beautiful drives and
DOWN TO DENMARK.
Leaving Stockholm we went to
Denmark and visited the old town
of Copenhagen, -and enjoyed the
genial spirit of good fellowship
which prevails among the Danes.
We had an amusing experience
there. One night we had gone to
the theater and coining out found
it raining a perfect deluge, It be
ing impossible to get a cab at the
door, I ran up to the corner of the
main street and soon hailed a taxi
and drove back to the theater to
get my wife. As I ran up with my
umbrella to assist her to the cab,
two ladies darted out of the foyer
and jumped into mv car. The driv
er informed them that he was en
gaged and as my wife stepped in
to the taxi, they apologized pro
fusely and started to get out; but
when we suggested that they were
welcome to ride a' few blocks witn
us if thev wanted the cab after
wards they became very merry,

Equipped with light camping
conveniences, they started out
from Knudsen's mountain house
the preceding Friday and walked
across, through Ivalalau valley, to
Haeua. The found the mountain
tramping difficult and fatiguing,
but more than interesting. Monday
night thev camped at the rende
vous of the leper outlaw, Koolau,
cue man wno Kiueu Deputy
Sheriff Stoltz and several National
Guard soldiers (the latter by pot-
shoting from his impregnable ren
devoirs) in 1893.
They reached Haena Tuesday
afternoon, and telephoned to Mrs
S. B. Deverill for a rig to take
them into Hanalei. A sort of ex
press wagon was sent cut.
On the way in, between Waini-
ha and Hanalei, one of the horses
shied from some missiles which
rolled down the mountain side and
began t o plunge. Mr. Wilder
jumped out safely and the others
prepared to do so. but at that junc
ture the rig slid over the cliff and
went down several feet. The horses
scrambling for footiug worked it
loose and the rig took another
drop, being stopped by trees, etc.
The party finally reached Hana
lei but all of them w..-re badly
scratched and used up. Moreover,
their clothing was soaking wet
from the heavy showers they had
endured, W. K. Schultze and
others, at Hanalti, coining to the
rescue with dry garments.
