The Peak Sisters of Alaska, made
plenty of fun at Puhl Hall last Satur
day night. These froten sisters
sang and joked and kept the large
audience highly pleased for some time.
This part of the program was render
ed by the Puhl Girls' Club, and they
deserve much credit for the good per
formance. A Ooop Dance by two
boys followed. This sent the boys
ot the audience almost into convul
sions, and gave everybody a good
laugh. Chorus singing, a negro
sketch, and then excellent music by a
Hawaiian orchestra rounded out the
Interest Is awakening in planting
vegetable gardens and flower beds,
and the appearance ot the village im
proves. The importance of vege
tables in the diet cannot be emphas
ized too much. With excellent soil
and the Inducements offered by the
plantation, no family should be with
out a garden.
The proudest people on Grove Farm
are the Filipino baseball and volley
ball teams. Two victories over Kea-
lia, one on the Puhl field and the sec
ond at Kapaa have been won on suc
ceeding Sunday afternoons. Last
Sunday the game at Kapaa drew a
large crowd who fully enjoyed the
sport. The score was 11 to 7 m favor
of Puhl. The boys had with them a
number of musical instruments and
they tuned up In great style to cele
brate the victory. Kealia showed
good sporting spirit, and after treat
ing the winners to soda water, they
offered to play a third game soon.
TO INVESTIGATE KAUAI
Kauai, geologically the least known
of all the larger Hawaiian Islands, is
to yield up its mysteries.
According to the Star-Bulletin, Bish
op museum authorities have received
word that a Mr. Hinds, instructor in
geology at Harvard University, will
arrive in Honolulu within a week or
two to conduct research which may
last over a two year period.
Mr. Hinds has a travelling fellow
ship from Harvard. He is reported
to be a young man, full of enthusiasm
for the work and determined to in
vestigate the island of Kauai thorough
ly. He will make the Bishop museum
his headquarters and museum offic
ials will cooperate with him in every
way possible . It is expected that
much interesting material will be un
earthed. to:. -

Belief that the Hawaiian land bill
will be passed by Congress, but fear
that it will be vetoed by President Wil
son, is expressed by Delegate Kuhio
in a recent letter. In the hope ot
saving the measure, it is proposed to
strike out the clause providing- that
only citizen labor shall be employed
on government work. The War De
partment is opposed to this provision.
A SCENIC BIT OF ROAD
That portion of the Ahuklni-Kealia
Railway skirting the Hanamaulu Bay
will offer very picturesque scenic at
tractions for the discriminating eye.
The tropical growth of cocoanut trees,
the rice fields, the little river, the
surf-fringed shores, the sea on one
side and the mountains on the other,
with the artistic bridge thrown in,
all in the space ot a ten minute run
on the Ahukini Special; this, in its
way, will be hard to beat.
A FIND OF "HAWAIIAN DIAMONDS"
Well borers at Olaa, near the mill
have run into a mine of olivines. Ol
ivines are generally Imbedded in hard
rock, like raisins in a pudding ,but
occasionally they are found in loose
deposits, like sand or small pebbles.
This deposit seems to be of that nat
ure. The olivines that have been
brought to the surface are unusually
large and brilliant. They are of a
yellow-green tint somewhat like gar
nets. They are sometimes known as
Hawaiian diamonds. Selected stones
free from flaws have a very consider
The plantation bonus for February
will be only 21 per cent. 15.75 per
cent being payable immediately, the
balance at the end ot the year. The
average price of sugar was a trifle
over 5 cents,
The Griffco, the Matson freighter
handling direct freight and sugar ship
ments between here and the Coast,
came to Ahukini last Wednesday, un
loaded her cargo, took aboard 19,000
bags ot sugar and departed on Friday.
Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Mullin left for
Honolulu and the Coast last Saturday.
They will be missed. Mrs. Mullin
in particular was a very efficient,
kindly and gracious nurse and welfare
worker, who endeared herself to all
whom she served.
The above are new goods and are priced
on the very latest market value. .
