As promised I am getting down a
few lines about the happwring here
and of our impressions of guard
We had a splendid passage on the
Manna Kea, arriving bright and
early outside the harbor, but were
kept back by grim Fort Armstrong,
where the red Hag flew indicating
no entrance. At tne proper hour
a gun boomed and in we went fol-
owed by the Kinau and other
boats. Once on terra firma we
were ordered to various downtown
restaurants for breakfast which was
ery much enjoyed indeed. -
At 9 o'clock we all assembled at
the railway station and boarded the
train in good order, filling eight
cars. After a swift run we arrived
at Kawailoa Camp about 12:30 de
trained and were given lunch con
sisting of jam sandwiches and hot
coffee. Next, we were marched to
where Co. "LV camp street was
to, be and commenced pitching
tents, one row on each side of the
street. But alas, the tents furnish
ed us, crated, had no pins, so all
we managed to get up that night
was two tents, one for the ollicers
and one for the three cooks, the
atter being the most important
personages of all. The men slept
on their cots unde the starry sky
and I must say not a word of com
plaint was heard true a few shiv
ered but a cup of hot coffee soon
set them right.
By noon Sunday we received pins
and soon our little city was up

is pretty strenuous, I must say that

Near the camp is the Kawailoa
pumping station trom which at
a. m. there emerges a blast of a
very sonorous steamwhistie, louu
enough to wake the dead. Most of
us get up then altho reveille only
goes at 5: 30. Then we fall in in the
dark, march out on the plain and
have a fifteen minutes hard setting

perspiration, a little double time is
given and we are ready for break

The Bartlett Exhibition
The exhibition of Mr. Charles
V. Bartletts wood engravings in
color, which have been on view at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lydgate
during the past few days, has
brought a touch of color and a bit
of variety into these Ftrenuous days
when our thoughts are centered on
war and its dread activity. It was
a complete change for those who
were fortunate enough to be there,
to le taken on a trip through India,
Kashmir, Ceylon and Japan.
The walls literally shone with
gems of rich color found in the Khv
ber Pass, and Srinagar, Benares and
Agra where is the most perfect ex
ample of Mohammedan architecture
in the world, that etherial mauso
leum built by Akbar Khan called
the Tai-Mahal. Most of the Indian
pictures portrayed a world utterly
strange to us, unlike anything that
may be seen here; some of the
scenes from Madura and Ceylon how
ever, suggested our own Inland?
in a way.
' The Japanese subjects are most
interesting, and have a character
all their own. These wood cuts
are carried much farther than the
old Japanese color prints of Iliro
shige and Hokusai, the color print
masters of Japanese art. lheir
tone, variety of color, and brilliance
all suggest a Western point of view.
The medium of production by
means of engraving on wood is only
suitable for designs more or less
decorative, and it is in this happy
combination of idealism and realism
that Mr. Bartlett shows his origin
ality and character.
The method of making these
wood cuts, which has been in use
for three hundred years or so, and
is still in vogue, may be described
briefly as follows:
The design, or picture is drawn
by the artist on t thin paper and
pasted onto a cherry-wood block,
face downward. This block is then
carved out so that the drawing only
remains; many prints are then
made from this block. They are
called key blocks. The artist colors
the key blocks, one for each separate
color, and these in turn are pasted
onto the cherrywood blocks leaving
only the spaces to be colored.
Ordinarily about twelve or six
teen blocks were used for Mr. Bart-
ttt's prints, though of course the
number varies with the subject and
the result desired.
Then conies the printing. First
the key block is printed by placing
the paper face downward on the
block and rubbing it with the "bar
ren," a disc covtred with 'bam
boo skin or sheath. Afterward each
wood block is used in the same
way. great care being xaKcn inai
the "register" is always accurate.
Dark rich tones, as in the sky of
the Taj Mahal by Moonlight" or
the water of Udaipur" are pro
duced by coloring the block many
times with the necessary blue, and
printing separately each time as
many as fifty-five printings were
necessary in the above Udaipur."
Mr. Bartlett is now at work on
some wood cuts in Honolulu which
he is producing entirely by him
self. No doubt they will lack the
extraordinary mechanical skill of
the Japanese carver and printer,
men who have worked all . their
lives at such monotonous labor,
but on the other hand they will
gain enormously as works of art,
for they will bear the impression of
his own individuality throughout
the entire work.
The edition of each subject con
sists of 150 signed proofs, and when
the edition is exhausted the blocks

As a whole. 1 think the camp is
a success, the men learning fast as
should be. Sanitation, uppermost,
is well taken care of, and but very
