these records has recently come up
in Honolulu Miss Waldroh, born!
some 18 vears ago on Maui, is .seek
ing admission to Girtoh College.
Cambridge England ; but before she
can be admitted she 'must produce
i certified copy of her birth certi
ficate. When application was made
to the proper authorities locally,
for this certificate, it could not be
secured for the simple reason that

Tho "hihimanu" or kito fish
abound in the sea and as is their
wont alout this time of tho year,
come into the bays and reefs to catch

others have been shot at Wailirti.
These hihimanus have been known
to frighten mermaids as well as
fish. The three or four bone iko
needles 2'i inches "long at tho baso
of tho tail are very poisonous. They
are detachable like porcupine quills.

few days ago giving the Legislature
of Hawaii the power to grant the

as those in Washington.

Cane-cutting in the homesteads
will be finished this week; it is un
derstood that the yield from homo
stead growers will have reached
about 40,000 tons of cane, which
has been converted by Keaiia mill
into about 4000 tons of sugar. Tho
average price received by tho home
steader's for this has been around
$(!.75 per ton, or a gross return of
some 8270,000.00. The greater part
of this years crop was from plant
crops on land where the clearing ex
pense was high, tho net to tho
growers probably does not average
over 82.00 per ton of cane.
