THE HELE LOAS HIT
THE TRAIL AGAIN
With an enthusiasm which shows
no hesitation, tlio Hclo Lous Club to
tho number of somo twenty-live, took
to the mountains Sunday afternoon
in spite of therateniug skies and
wind and rain.
Motoring to the gap, they parked
their cars Just insldo the Kamooloa
gate, shouldered their commlsariat
supplies, and hiked it mauka to tho
Lydgato mountain house. In ordin
ary weather this can bo done by
motor car, but nt present tho state
of tho roads forbid.
A Country of Many Ditches.
Leaving the commlsariat supplies
with tho Commlsariat Marthas at
this point as a base, tho rest of tho
party took to tho ditch trail load
As may be known to our readers.
there are two high ditches which
:un parallel, skirting tho foot of
tho mountains and tapping and di
verting tho various streams which
thoy cross, for plantation use on
the west side of tho island. Tho
first o these known as tho Kamoo-
lo.i ditch, was constructed somo 12
or 15 years ago by tho Mcl3rydo
interests to gather up and delivor
the surplus storm water of tho
Grove Farm lands to tho McDrydo
plantation. Tho other, of moro re
cent construction, was built by the
Koloa interests for that plantation.
The two ditches are scarcely a
stone's throw apart, winding and
twisting together to the topographic
requirements of tho country, like
two bands of silver on the hem of
an ample skirt.
The Beauties of the Ditch Trail.
On n bright sunny day the region
is one of most picturesque beauty,
and even on a rainy.i overcast day, it
is singularly charming, if you can
only foget tho wind and tho cold
drip of tho over-arching Kukul
trees. Most of tho way, the trail,
which is an excellent one, is grad
ed out of tho side-hill, giving fresh
vistas at every turn, of tho valley
below, and tho overhanging banks
above. Tho varying green of tho
luxuriant tropic vegetation make the
pisturo one of vivid beauty. Among
these outstanding features are tho
emerald banks of staghorn fern and
the silver gray masses of tho ku
kul. The Folly of Dainty Footgear.
There were some "tenderfeet" in
this party literally so, before the
end of tho hike, who didn't know it
was going to bo that kind of a
thing, and who came In russott
brown low shoes and silk stockings
to match. They came homo wisor,
but sadly bedraggled, maidens, and
tho russet brown low shoes and
silk stockings aro dono for good.
They Saw It Thru to the End.
Tho ordinary visitor to these re
gions is generaly content to stop at
the first waterhead, the Papuaa, but
this crowd pushed cn to tho end
of tho original ditch at Kumooloa.
and then on to tho end of tho long
tunnel, whero tho roaring stream
emerges from its mile of under
ground journey from the Wallua wa
tershed beyond. Not being required
on the piuntatlou below at present,
tho water was turned out of tho
ditch, through a big waste gate, and
tumbled white and foaming Into
tho valley below.
On the way up some skeptical
malahino had picked somo Lchua
blossoms and had scoffingly resent
ed tho warning prediction that it
would bring rain. But it did, a sharp
shower of cold gusty rain and it
was a pretty wet and bedraggled
crowd of clinging shirtwaists and
skirts, that straggled back to head
quarters. Refitted From the Rag Bag.
Hero, fortunately, tho Marthas had
a good flro under way and from
the motley store of nondescript gar
ments mostly cast off and mostly
masculine, the wot ones woro moro
or less, some very much less, robed
in dry, If not very stylish outfits.
Somo of them, since they were
wet anyhow, completed tho experi
ence by a swim in tho stream near
by, and were most enthusiastic con
corning tho tonic, stimulating char
acter of tho cold mountain water.
Fragrant coffee, and steaming hot
rice, with sandwiches of every known
brand and variety, constituted a sun-
per that everyone appreciated to
the uttermost. Tho hot rlco espo
clally wns a revelation to many
who never knew before that rlco
was so good.
A Disorderly Retreat.
The original intention had been to
spend tho evening tuore around the
camp fire and go home by moon
light. But tho threatening skies.
and exceedingly poor outlook for any
moon, suggested tho wisdom of a
speedy retreat, whilo there was still
light enough to avoid mudholes and
pitfalls of tho uncertain road., which
they did in irregular formation and
amid many enthusiastic assurances
that thoy had enjoyed it all Immense
Tho last word was, "When aro
wo going again?"
