Things New Again
Silver which has become dull and tarnished

caps, reflectors, bumpers, instruments, will make the car
look far better.
Our plating plant is equipped to turn out any

Dr. J. S. B. Pratt of Honolulu,
father of J. S. B. Pratt., Jr., head
luna of Kilauea plantation, was in
an automobile accident last Monday
afternoon that undoubtedly would
have proved fatal for him had he
not shown considerable presence of
mind. His car turned over twice
on the Tantalus road and was bad
ly smashed. Dr. Pratt was uninjured.
Dr. Pratt and A. B. Bishop were
driving up the Tantalus road when
they decided that it was necessary
to turn around and return to the
city. The road was narrow and
there was no place near where a
good turn could be made. Mr. Bish
op got out of the car to watch the
turn and to tell Dr. Pratt Just how
far he could back safely.
The bank at the edge of the
road was evidently undermined for
without warning it gave away and
the car backed over and started
bounding down the side of the pre
cipice. It made two complete somer
saults before it came to a stop at
the bottom. Mr. Bishop went down
as fast as he could to get Dr. Pratt
out. The car was then turned over
with the wheels in the air.
Before Mr. Bishop could reach
the car, Dr. Pratt crawled out from
under the wreck. He was consid
erably messed but was uninjured,
having only a slight scratch on his
right arm. He said: "Well, A, Q
I decided a long time ago that If
I ever got into an auto accident I
would stick down and hold to the
bottom of the car without trying
to jump out. It seems to have
worked all right this time."

The "Colonel" and Mrs. Wlllalm

It is necessary for steamers to
bring the "Crusoes" supplies occa
sionally. According to the Honolulu
Eagle Boat 40 will leave Pearl
harbor at midnight tomorrow on
an exploration cruise to the Pal
myra islands, carrying a navy sea'
plane and three flying officers who
will make surveys of the islands in
the Palmyra group similar to those
made at Midway by the party which
went from Pearl Harbor last year.
The Eagle boat will also carry
supplies to Col. Meng and party
who have been in the Palmyra
islands since November of last year
including the taking of photographs
from the seaplane, the party will go
on to Fanning, Washington and
Christmas islands, where they will
also make investigations.
This ia the first expedition sent
out by the government for the pur
pose of making a survey of the
Palmyra group, and, although no
official announcement has been
made to the effect it Is conjectured
that the investigation of the group
is being made by the United States
navy department with a view to es
tablishing a station on the islands.
The Palmyra group which Is com
posed of about 50 small Islands, Is
owned by Judge Henry E. Cooper
of Honolulu. The islands are less
than a degree north of the Equator
and are located due south of Ha
waii. Lieut. Com. Klrkpatrlck, com
manding officer of the naval air
forces in Hawaii, Lieut. O. P. Gil
mer and Lieut. G. A. Ott, both of
the naval air forces stationed at
Pearl Harbor, will also make the
trip and will also make surveys of
the Islands from seaplane which is
to be taken on the deck of the
Eagle 40. The Eagle boat is com
manded by Lluet. J. Click, and
Liuet. (j. g.) Edward Smith will
also be one of the officers to make
the trip. The regular crew of 60
men will be taken. The party ex
pects to return to Pearl Harbor in
about three weeks.
