Sugar Carriers Promised
The problem of how the' BiiKur cro,
for the season of 1918 in to be moved
has caused some worry nmong Island
sugar growers. It now looks as though
bottoms may yet be provided for its
transportation. A number of the plan
tations, expecting to experience diffi
culty in shipping, have already added
largely to their warehouse facilities.
The latest Information is that the
new steamers now being built in the
shipyards of Seattle and Tacoma are
to be despatched to the Atlantic by
way of Honolulu. These new steam
ers, of an average dead weight carry
ing capacity of 6,000 tons, are to come
o the islands from the Northwest with
coal for the Inter-Island company,
.ind will then be loaded with a cargo
of sugar for the Eastern refineries.
They will go through the Panama ca
nal. The plan previously discussed was
to send the sugar crop by rail from
San Francisco. It is said that the
Shipping Board was influenced in its
decision to help the Islands by Ned Ad
ams, the agent in Seattle for Alexan
der & Baldwin and the Matson Navi
Three of the steamers which are to
come shortly are the Boston, the Sacra
mento and the Absaroka. The Hoaton
Is of but 2,000 tons. The Sacramento
is 6.000 tons, and the Absaroka is 8.0i0
tons. The latter is a single screw ves
sel, 423 feet beam, and has a speed of
It is said that the three vessels men
tioned will arrive in Honolulu early in
the present month.
Naughty Annette Kellermann
Annette Kellermann, the diving
girl, who has been pronounced "the
perfect woman," will appear on the
screen at Kapaa on Thursday the 7th,
and at Llhue on Friday, the 8th.
They call the play "Neptune's Dau
ghter," but it don't make much dif
ference what they call it, it Is all
Annette Kellermann, notwithstanding
the several hundred people who take
part. The play was filmed down in
Jamaica, about three years ago. The
promoters found there some of the
most beautiful tropical scenery that
can be found anywhere outside of
Kauai. Annette parades around robed
in the garb of nature and an abbrevi
ated bathing suit, but they call It art
and all that sort of thing, and the
Board of Censors passed It. They
must have been looking the other way,
when they passed. Annette seems to
be a very handy person, as she dlven
around In the water with both legs on,
and appears later as a mermaid with
out any legs. There are a lot of cute
little children dressed as dwarfs, and
there are two little children which
appear to be pretty good swimmers.
The production of this Cum is said
to have cost $500,000. There are
plenty of figures on the linotype, and
a few more or less don't matter. It
cost a pretty penny, all right, and the
scenery, and some of the posing, Is
very beautiful. The film has had
record runs nearly everywhere it has
been exhibited. Women who see it
always Bay "Oh," and the men who
view it always say "Ah." Say, men,
better look what you're about. An
nette will catch you, if you don't watch
New Sugarcane Harvester
The harvesting of sugar cane lias
always been a slow ami expensive
process. The cutting of the cane
by knives in the hands of lahoreis
seems like a slow process, consider
ing the work which is accomplished
by other fanning implements, such
for instance, as the corn harvester.
Cane stalks are so large and tough,
that it has not seemed practical to
handle such a large volume of
material in a machine moving witli
any speed. Iiowevcr, a machine
liuilt along lines very similar to that
of the corn harvester is now in use
iij Louisians. and late reports say
that it is working very successfully,
and performing as much work in
one day ns has been accomplished
by forty laborers using cane knives.
Cane growers of Hawaii could well
afford to investigate the matter verv
thoroughly, as its adoption here
would beyond a doubt result in

Chinese Raised Blind Pigs
Lee Wall Chung of Honolulu has
made considerable money, one way
and another, and has considerable
property in that city. He has been
raising hogs, recently, out I'alolo
way, and neighbors admired his
enterprise. A hog farm isn't a place
which usually attracts many visi
tors, and the number of persons
which visited Chung's (lower gar
den, licgan to attract attention.
Some revenue men went out to
view the place, a few days ago, and
found twenty gallons of choioe sha
mahu in the cellar. There were
twenty-six mash barrels and a ket
tle, in an outbuilding, and a load
ed automatic pistol under Chung's
pillow. A pump shotgun was also
part of the outfit which Chung had
bought for raising hogs.
Cluing was absetit, but was enter
tained by the officials upon his r
turn. He furnished a bond of SI,

MARY AND HER tURLS
Mary Pickford, with the pretty face
and curls, appeared on the screen of
! the Fernandez circuit last week. The
picture gave undisputable evidence
that Mary'B curls are natural, and not
acquired, as quite a number of people
have thought. No wig or home made
curls would have stood the effect of
the storm that Mary's did and not
have proven themselves fulse.
