A RAINFALL STUDY
(continued from page 2)
strange to say, holds a fairly regular
record, being the wettest only three
times, and the driest only once. This
is somewhat of a surprise as mostj
people think of it as a stormy, rainy,
uncertain month. The average per
son remembers that it always storms
at Christmas, while the plantation
man commonly figures on December
as a dry month, or a very wet one.
Are these Deductions
To what extent these Grove Farm
conclusions may be taken as inter
preting the rainfall of the whole Is
land, or of the Territory at large, is a
question yiat only similar records
from all over the Island or the Terri
tory will answer. Probably they will
be substantially correct for places
where the conditions are the same or
THE KALALEA TRAIL IMPROVED
A trail making contingent put in a
day last week on the Kalaloa trail
to the Hole in the Anahola mountain.
Armed with cane knives and pick
they cut out the lantana, and made
steps up some of the steeper slopes.
The trail is now open to the public
for summer use, and even if it isn't
as good as it might be, it is a whole
lot better than it was.
A UTOMA TIC
without question, is 1 lie one BEST way of
producing artificial refrigeration.

There has never been a disease which was credited with
leaving its victim with after effects in such variety as the
Spanish influenza. There are a number of reasons for this,
chief of which is that the cause of the disease was not removed.

In cases where the clogging poisons were removed by arti

tases that are in danger from the so-called "after effects." It
is theme in whom the weakness which permitted the disease to
develop still remains, that need to take steps at once to be rid
of the canse of their weakness. Until they do they will not be
safe from after effects or the danger of a return of the dinease
Where there is inherent or chronic weakness of the kid
neys, liver, stomach and lungs, the cause is pressure upou spi
nal nerves supplying these organs with their normal functional
vigor. In other words, through some accident or the strain
of an abnormal position, the joints of the spinal column that
would affect the nerves leading to these organs, have become
out of alignment. This deviation has caused a narrowing of
the "nerve door." When the nerves to the lungs, the kidneys,
liver and stomach, any one or all four, are pinched these or
gans are robbed of their normal supply of nervous vigor. They
are thrown out of nervous balance with the rest of the body.
