they returned u week ago Friday.
A Private Cutter
With their own private cutter,
which they brought with them
form Town, and refusing any im
pediment in the way of local
guide or pilot, they boldly dared
the dangers of that forbidding
coast and sailed away to do as
might seem to them best at the
Ilonopit the Spot Ideal
Turning a deaf ear to the tra
ditional claims of Xuololo or Mi-
lolii where voyagers generally
camp they made for Ilonopu
farther up the coast which seem
ed to them a much more ideal
spot. A choice bit of sand beach ;
a fine stream of clear, cold water;
refreshing shade from the glare
and heat of the afternoon sun
plenty of drift wood ; and easy
access up the valley to the coun
try above, and to the haunts of
countless goats. The one draw
back is the difficulty of negotia
ting the landing, which can be
done only in smooth weather.
One of the natural wonders of the
coast is the monster tunnel which
pierces the mountain spur' at this
point in which one can always
find shelter from the storm or
from the afternoon glare.
This they made their headquar
ters for the two weeks they were
there, camping in the open on the
little sand flat with nothing over
them but the great cliffs and the
stars, and a little shred of mos
quito netting strung up on a
With their sail boat they ven
tured forth in the stillness of'the
early morning like veritable buc
caneers in search of natural booty
or stirring adventure, and then
when the wind came up, along

Then after a hastily improvised
lunch they took to the cliffs and
mountains behind them, some
time it was wild taro, or ripe
oranges, or the chance of wild
ducks, but generally it was goats.
And the goats never failed them.
They shot about forty of them.
The number and size and qua
lity of them quite outrun ordin
ary belief. But they tell a confi
dent story, and stick to it through
thick and thin. The most skil
ful cross examination fails to
Further Adventures of One
In the various exciting contests
the goats generally got the worst
of it, but one experience is vouch
ed for that panned out the other
way. An adventurous young
hunter rushing a steep slope with
out thought of danger, was but
ted into at the top out of a clear
sky, and knocked gally-west
dowu the shaly grade, and never
knew what hit him. Now he goes
over the top cautiously.
The Perfect Stew
At first anything that was goat
was a prize and they packed home
a good many carcasses that
weren't fit for dog meat. But
gradually they learned the only
kind that they could eat and how
to cook them. They must be
boiled, and stewed, and simmered
over a slow fire and very patient
tire for hours, which process
draws forth the savory richness
of the meat, and makes a pottage
such as that which cost Esau his
The cuisine program was to re

chase along toward nightfall, and
then get the stew going in good

Varied Talents of the Commodore
The commodore and promoter
of the party was also the chef
and made it his care to see that
what the hunters brought home
was cooked to do it full justice.
With this profession he combined
that of landscape artist. While
his pot fire simmered at his side he
did charming color sketches of the
scenes before him up and down the
coast. The boys are still uncer
tain wherein the greater genius
lay in the sketches or the stews.
Dead to Windward
It wasn't long before the larder
began to show signs of depletion
along certain lines, so an expedi
tion was organized to restock.
This meant Haena, or Wainiha, or
even, perhaps, Ha mi lei, and as it
meant dead to windward when
ever there was any wind, an early
start was a matter of the utmost
wisdom. Four of the best seamen
and the sturdiest boatmen, set out
about 11 M) in the morning, and
made a clean row of it to Makuu
landing at Ilaena, which they
made in four hours or so. Here
they were received most hospita
bly 'by the Theilens who insisted
on entertaining them to lunch.
Restocking the Larder
After lunch they footed it to
Wainiha where they stocked up
liberally at the Nakatsuji store,
finding many delicacies which
they never dreamed a country
store would carry. And there
heard of the fame of the Kalihi
kai watermelons; so they borrow
ed Nakatsuji's car and made for
Kalihikai, where they loaded up
with the remnants of the season.
Return to Camp With Stop Overs
They slept on the beach that
night, and next morning after a
delicious breakfast with the Thei
len's, they struck out for home be
them down the coast with the
speed of an automobile. They ran
into Hanakapiai and explored the
ruins of the old Deverill place;
then on to Kalalau, where they
caught sight of the Wood-Wilcox
party, so they ran in there and
stayed a while; and finally made
Hauopu landing safely, though
with some risk as there was a
pretty heavy sea running by this

A New Vegetable
Has any one tried udo? It is
a Japanese vegetable somewhat
resembling asparagus and celery.
It grows here in the Islands and
is used by our Japanese friends,
though it is doubtful if any of the
haoles know anything about it.
To prepare for the table it must
be boiled in three waters and then
soaked for an hour in ice water
after which it can be served in

than either asparagus or celery.
requiring little or no care and be
ing easily blanched.
Ask your Japanese cook to get
a few stalks of it the next time he
visits his friends, just to see what
it is like. In Japan the stalks
grow to an inch and a half in
thickness, but here they are only
about a third of that size.
