A NOTABLE OUTING
The Hul Hele Loa outing club
carried through a very successful out
ing last Saturday in spite of unprom.
Islng weather conditions and leaden
At 2:30 every last man of the club
was on hand at the mouth of the river
at Wallua for the motor boat trip up
the river and the barge was so filled
to overflowing that some of the light
er and more adventurous spirits went
forward into the steerage on the motor
boat. With manifold wraps and
raincoats they looked like a north
pole party in high latitudes. The
veteran pilot of many seasons thought
they were going to be a glum and pious
lot, but before he got through with
them, his celestial face relaxed .Into
a broad grin and he said: "Too much
fool.em kind, no see before!"
When the flotilla reached the rice
plantation where the veteran rice
planter and owner of the motor boat,
Chan Chip, lives, the crowd insisted
on having him out and giving him
three rousing cheers to which he res
ponded with the hesitation and mod.
esty of a new experience.
On the way Mr. Lydgato, the leader
of the expedition, pointed out the
various points of interest and related
the Hawaiian stories connected with
them. Unfortunately the south branch
was too shallow for the heavy barge,
so that they had to forego the visit to
the Mermaidena Home, and the chance
of seeing one of these bewitching
creatures. Instead jthey went ashore
at the poi factory and hiked up along
the ditch under beautiful overarching
trees, to Kalua-hole, a populous Haw.
alian village in ancient times, as is
attested by the great grove of mango
and breadfruit trees, which still re.
A few moments of inspection were
given to the poi factory, where a
big batch of taro was in the imu all
ready for steaming, and everyone
was pleased with the cleanlineas and
sanitary wholesomeness of the place.
But to the malihini mind the most
wonderful thing there was an old
Chinaman smoking a big bamboo wat
er filled pipe. They would like to
have brought away the pipe, China,
man and all.
Leisurely returning, they reached
the mouth of the river about dusk.
Selecting a sheltered spot on the
beach, a rousing big bonfire was made,
with smaller ones for cooking. Can
vas tarpaulins were spread down, and
in no time a delicious supper was
ready, which was doubly welcome to
The evening about the bonfire was
most delightful and was rendered the
more so by siiigiuK, stories, imperson.
ations, etc. Everyone enjoyed it all
thoroughly and the common concen

pects not a drop of rain fell.
ON THE TRAIL OF MOONSHINE
It is significant of the commonness
of that sort of tiring, that a hikine
party, recently, with one minister in
the lead, and another in the rear,
stumbled into a moonshine camp with
the booze in process of manufacture.
It was In a secluded valley safe from
any ordinary disturbance.
The fiist spasm of consternation
was followed by a diplomatic air of
Innocence and virtue, and the assur
ance that they were so careful and
particular about their drinking water
that they had to distill it. Neither
the taste nor the smell indicated dis.
tilled water, however.
