The Cruise of the Hata Maru
(By I' Lydgate.
(Continued from last issue.)
Siva's Toggery, Honolulu. j
With the means of escape thus
temporarily withdrawn visions of
being marooned on this narrow
ledge, with the sea on one side,
and the lofty cliffs on the other,
came to our minds, what if some
thing happened to the sampan and
she never came back ? We had
plenty to eat and we could catch
fish, but water was the weak point
in our stronghold. We had a five
gallon'Memijohn no it was only
three-quarters full, and we were
all consumed with an inordinate
Visibly, and alarmingly, that
water supply dwindled, and wc
saw ourselves facing a horrible
death with all the tortures of
starvation. Something must be
done, and that right away, before
dark, so we organized a commis
sion of the dryest men of the party
to look for water, and were very
much relieved when they returned
with the assurance that they had
found a slough where there was
real water, and fresh water,
though with a very ancient smell,
which would certainly do for dom
estic purposes, Now, we could
stand a siege and the run on the
demijohn fell off immediately.
About this time the fishermen of
the party returned with a generous
catch of delicious fish which form
ed the mainstav of our supper,
which was eaten "off the bat "
largely standing, like the children
of Isreal on Passover Eve, with
more or less sand and some bugs
The evening was altogether de
lightful, especially as the moon
rose behind the mountains at our
back, and illuminated the cliffs
above us, and the delicate fra
grance of the creamy pilu caper
flowers, as big as a small tea cup
filled the air. On the reefs the
red and yellow lights of the fisher
men flitted about, assuring us of
lobsters, crabs, turtles, etc. and
only an occasional mosquito humm
ed a discordant note. .
At length the fishermen return
ed with some fish, and more tales
of what they had "almost" caught,
or thrown away. And when we
had said our sav about the war,
and the Civic Convention and the
jury system and the income tax,
and other such lofty themes, and
"polished off" a paper bag of
apples, over-looked at an earlier
stage, we stole off to bed, to. learn
how hard the sofest sand can be
and how one or two mosquitoes are
as "good as a feast." We doubt
less all slept at last, in spite of
many disclaimers next morning.
However that may be, we were all
up at daybreak and all other in
terests were superseded by break
fast which was none too early to
be welcome. ;
After breakfast we made a trip
over to the point, where the old
Hawaiian ladder used to be, by
means of which the hardy residents
of the Nu-o-lolo climbed up to
their taro lands, and down to their
fishing grounds. They had t o
creep along a very narrow, dan
gerous ledge, over a boiling caul-
fhere is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
He taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
re made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable,
fhe same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
tuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
ter each frying.

pkes stay fresh and moist longer.
dron of under-cut sea, then, up
the ladder to another similar ledge
above at one point on which tkere
was a huge piojecting rock, round
which no stout man could pass
and even the thin ones could com
pass it only aftrt- a long txpired
breath left them fiat as pancakes;
then they could dodge round and
pursue their arduous, and dan
gerous way up the cliff. We came
to the conclusion that no one of
us was lank enough for that feat,
though we had one man who cast
no perceptible shadow, even in the
sun and whose first impulse was to
swear he could do it,
Nu-a lolo must once have been a
populous region in spite of its
seclusion with a Board of Public
Works, which had done great
things in the way of temple walls
and stone defenses, and had evi
dently made the very utmost of
their agricultural possibilities.
The two essential features of Ha
waiian life were fish and taro, and
it wasn't always easy to find them
together. Here both condition!,
were in close conjunction, plenty
of fish and laud suitable for taro.
That was to live! what cared thev
for the interests and excitements of
a broader life, where you might pay
for your fun by a premature and

width, with a fine stream near one
end from which the wtter was led
in each direction, through a nar
row ribbon of taro lands. Some
of the patches being so tiny that
you could swallow them without
danger of indigestion. When we
were there, 18 years or so ago,
there was still a little hamlet of
Brass houses standing, thought de
serted, and the frame work of
some of the houses still remains.
One of them was transported
bodily t o the Bishop Museum
where it serves as a typhical Ha
waiian house to this day.
Meantime our power sampan
had returned, with the requisite
small boat, so we packed up our
effects, lightered them- aboard,
finally went aboard ourselves, and
"steamed" leisurely back, keep
ing close in under the beetling
cliffs, and loath to leave them,
with all their wonderful variety of
turrets and minarels, and buttress
es, and water-worn gussets down
which torrents pour at times, leav
ing ihetn stained a rich oxide red,
where here and there a trickle ol
permanent water weaves a trail of
green down to the vny sea.
Again we touched at the Bark
ing Sands to land our commdore,
whose automobile had been pro
tected over niaht in that laud of
bandits, by two small boys and a
pistol; the boys and the pistol
were there to receive him. We
gave him three hearty cheers and
all agreed that the cruise of the
Hata Maru was the biggest thing
of the season.
