That schooner can be waterlogged
and drift about or ten days between
the Islands without being picked up
In these days of frequent communica
tion and many vessels, seems next
to impossible. Yet It Is Just what
happened in the case of the ill starred
little schooner the Annie K.
Some two weeks or so ago, this
little schooner left Honolulu for Molo
kal with a load of lumber beltnging to
the City Mill Co. The crew consisted
of the captain three men, and two
She was hardly out of the harbor
when she commenced to leak badly,
and the pumps refused to work so that
she filled rapidly. Becoming helpless
she was borne by the current steadily
to the westward, drifting along the
southern shore of Oahu, but too far
out to run across any help. . When off
Barber's point the captain despatched
the only boat they had, with the three
men in it, to seek help while he and
the two boys remained aboard. As
she carried a deck load of lumber the
captain felt sure he could keep the
schooner afloat until help came. In
order to do this It was of the utmost
importance to keep the load intact
and prevent it shifting. Accordingly
it was a pretty steady Job for the
captain and the two boys to renew
the lashings and make sure that every'
thing was allright.
Another pressing job was the up
keep of a regular flare service, at two
hour intervals, during the night. For
tunately they had gasoline and kero
sene, and an Improvised torch on a
pole made an effective flare.
Their first hope of rescue lay In
passing steamer going south, whose
attention and assistance they tried to
secure, but failed. She probably didn't
see them. After they had been a
week out, and had drifted to the south
and westward of Niihau the Transport
Madawaska hove in sight, and came
within a mile of them, then strange to
say, went on her way to Manila.
She however, at least rendered them
the service of wirelessing to Honolulu
the fact that they had seen the flares
and finally on more explicit inquiry,
furnished the exact location.
The lighthouse tender Kukul was at
once despatched to her aid and found
the ill-fated craft very near where the
flares had been seen. Capt. Filtz and
the two boys were very much reduced,
as they had been without food for
several days and had suffered from
sun and wind and night exposure.
The waterlogged vessel proved to
ibe too heavy to tow to port, so the
deck, load and all that would burn was
set on fire, and the balance blown up.
The Tomato as a Panacea
The orange as a fruit, and the
tomato as a vegetable have always
been very highly esteemed simply be
because they were palatable. But it
now transpires that they are much
more valuable than most people
Scientific research has recently
made the discovery that, In addition
to the nutritine qualities of food, what
are known as "vitamins" are absolute
ly necessary to health. The best of
food, without these vitamins, is im
perfectly assimilated, and fails large
ly of Us purpose, and various alimen
tary disorders set in.
Now it seems that the orange and
the tomato are particularly rich in the
mysterious qualities known as vl
tamins, and thus gain an added im
portance in the dietary of all intelli
gent people. j
It has long been known that orange
Juice is a very helpful and wholesome
adjunct to food, and every intelligent
mother uses it freely in connection
with whatever lactic food her baby
During the war, the scarcity and
high price of oranges, both at home
and abroad, led to the senrch for the
same qualities in other natural pro
ducts, with the result that the tomato
has been found to be even superior to
the orange in this respect, fortunately
also it is more readily available,
cheaper, and more readily stored.
Canned or dried the vitamin poten
cies are preserved.
Almost everyone likes tomatoes,
and is glad to eat them raw or cooked
whenever they are available. In the
light of their exceptionally valuable
properties we should make a point of
using them more freely than we do;
and they Bhould find an assured place
in every kitchen garden, so that they
may be available for every day In the
