I HAWAIIAN YOUTH lA NARROW ESGAPE
t; ' SHOOTS HIMSELF
Last Thursday morning, Wil
liam Kealakai, a young Hawaiian
known to his intimates as "Makuo
ole"), living in a house mauka of
the ricd mill near Nawiliwili, shot
himself with a revolver in the
mouth, was rushed to the hospital,
successfully treated and will re-cover,
unless unexpected complica
tions set in. lie is now conscious,
cheerful and seems to be recover
ing. It is stated that Kealakai had
had some difference with the na
tives owning the house in which he
iyed over the matter of money for
rent; and upon returning to the
house in the forenoon it was to
find himself locked out. He sat on
the veranda for awhile, and soon
after the Hawaiians living some
75 yruuls in front heard the report
Running to the place they fould
Kealakai lying upon his back on
the floor of the veranda, a 32-calibre
revolver on his breast, and ap
parently dead. They notified Depj
uty Sheriff Ellis, who lives across
the field on the Nawiliwili side;
and Ellis notified the Sheriff ar.d
, The natives all thought the man
was dead, but when Dr. Putman
arrived he immediately discovered
that such was not the case, and the
patient was taken in a wagon to the

k mouth ago when he went to the
r hospital for treatment for a bad case
of grippe. While there tfie woman
with whom he had been living was
brought in and died a short time
later of hemorrhage. That same
day Kealakai left the hospital.
Kealakai was in bad financial
circumstances and lately had bor
rowed money from several persons
around Lihue and Nawiliwili. This
state of things, added to that of
the death of his friend and his
own impaired health, undoubtedly
occasioned the attempt at self-destruction.
IODINE IN EYE IN
PLACE OF ARGYROL
Rev. J. M. Lvdgate met with a
couple o f unusual mishaps last
week as a result of which he was
in the Lihue hospital for two days
and left on Saturday for Honolulu
'jnr treatment by an eye specialist.
He first injured a finger so badly
as to put his hand temporarily out
of commission. Then he started
to put some argyrol in His eye, and
by mistake used iodine instead.
Persons familiar with the latter
preparation will readily understand
what happened, and those not
familiar with it may be assured,
without further experiment, that
the sensation is not agreeable.
At the hospital the eye was
treated with hot bandages a n d
otherwise to remove as much of
the drug as possible. The burning
ceased after a time, but treatment
of the eye by an expert was deem

Mrs. E. O. Thurtell, Lihue,
had a narrow escape from drown
ing in the river at Niumalu last
She, with Mrs. Trowbridge,
Charlotte Coney and two children
had been wading in the shallow
water of the br.y near by. Miss
Charlotte went swimming up the
river a little way and presently
was followed by Mrs. Thurtell,
who, however, could not swim.
Near the embankment opposite the
Coney residence Mrs. Thurtell
stepped off into deep water and
Hearing a scream and noting
the situation, Miss Charlotte, who
was too small to risk being drawn
under the water, made for the
shore, got a boat and pulled rapid
ly to the struggling woman, who
had, by that time, it is claimed,
gone down several times, The
girl succeeded, from the boat,
in getting a good hold upon Mrs.
In the meanwhile Hon. J. H.
Coney, who was in his house,
heard a scream, ran out and, tak
ing in the situation quickly, jump
ed into the water, with his clothes
on, and swam to the scene, reach
ing Mrs. Thurtell just after his
daughter had taken hold of her.
The work of rescue was then a
matter of only a few minutes.
Mrs. Thurtell; whose nerves
were considetahly jarred by the
experience, spent the night at the
Coney residence and was taken
home Thursday morning.
A rickety baseball game was
pulled off by the Lihues and Japa
nese on the grounds of the former
Sunday afternoon, enough errors
being made by both sides to fill, a
score book. However, the big
crowd seemed to enjoy it, and
there was rooting in plenty.
The Lihues started out with
Toma in the box, but he proved
too slender, letting the Japanese
in for three runs in the first in
nings and Ihree, in the third. C.
Kuhlmanu was then put in the.
box, and after that the J. A. C's.
did not get a man over the place.
The Japanese were far and away
in the best baseball form, but were
rather light for their opponents,
who, with proper training and
practice, would doubtless have had
a walk over.
