score of 7-1. Makaweli has one
more game to play before she will
be given the championship of the
Makaweli league, but regardless
of the outcome of the game she
will cross bals with Camp 4 for
llic Plantation championship, as
her average is still 1000, and Camp
I, the next in line, has only 472.

Basket Ball at Makaweli
Iiasket ball is coming to its own
at Makaweli school. Mr. Damkrog
re who has charge of the program
of physical education there, has
been finding some difficulties in
teaching Ihis game due to the
fact that the boys have never seen
the sport played before and there
fore cannot grasp the idea of the
game. Also that the Island boy
finds it difficult to think in any
other term except baseball. How
ever, it is now faking its place and
it will not be long before several
good teams will be "whipped"' into
shape. Daily instruction is being
given in the plaving of the game.

fairness to the players and fans,
it must be conceded that the umps
pulled oft a lot of "boners" in try

umpire who has given any sort of
satisfaction and his efforts are ap
preciated by the players and fans.

Goes Up on High
There was a pretty custom
among some of the ancients when
a prominent citizen died, to send
his valet along with him on the
road to Paradise, and it was often
times necessary to resort to ex
treme methods to insure this com
pany for the departed. But in the
territory of the China-American
Trading Company, Ford dealers
iu Tientsin, China, they have dis
covered a much better aid to the
deceased over the rough places on
the trip to the Promised Land.
It is a custom of the Chinese to
burn various kinds of effigies at
the funeral ceremonies of the rich,
the more wealthy the departed the
more elaborate the figures burned
over his grave. These effigies rep
resent every maimer of thing such
as human figures, horses, sedan
chairs, tables loaded with viands.
The figures usually conform to
some of these stereotyped fashions,
but at the funeral of a Mr. Li.
who died a short time ago in Tien
tsin, and who was a very wealthy
man, the bereaved family outdid
themselves and made an imitation
of the deceased gentleman's Ford
car to be burned at his grave.
This Ford effigy was made en
tirely of strong Chinese paper
stretcher! on bamboo and a reed
frame. The oar was complete in
every detail, the pedal stcvurately
placed, and all cud of paper and
bamboo. The interior of the car
was also aevuriw t:t detail, being
carefullv u: b..ls;ervrl i:i paper.
The eficy of thhe driver as shown
iu the ph w .i-t h. was a work of
art. The car was carrier! about
three miles through crowded
streets to the graveside when1 a
match ?.s applied atd it was con
suned in a few minutes.
This is the first time a motor :ar
hss ever been burned at the grave
of s Cfc-'tese. and there is every
m.v. r. to t-elieve that the deceased
