FAMOUS RESORT IS NO
It Sheltered Robert Louis Stevenson
and Many Other Choice Spirits.
Something of Its Romantic History.
Sans Soucl Is no more. The heavenly
sunsets which Robert Louis Stevenson
loved and described are hung out every"
evening over the Pacific before the
place Just -as they used to be and there
Is the same view of the distant Wala
nae hills as before, but the Bohemian
hospitality and the convivial fellowship
of Sans Soucl souls Is at an end. The
roof that sheltered Stevenson while he
wrote that marvel of his pen "The
Master of Ballentfae" now encloses but
barren rooms In which the casual
stranger would detect no spirit but the
spirit of decay and neglect. The rooms
In which Rudolph Spreckels was wont
to entertain his friends In an atmos
phere of material plenty and gastrono
mic affluence are now but bare walls
and unkept floors and ceilings. Where
Paul Neumann was the life of an ani
mated circle of wit and good fellowship
the spirit of emptiness has taken pos
session. The afternoon sun still floods the
spacious lanals and the adjoining rooms
where J. D. Strong and his wife left so
many examples of their skilful brushes,
and the sunshine Is still mellowed and
broken up by the shade of the gnarled
old hau tree and the banyan near the
door, but the lanals are deserted.
The modern, Iconoclastic spirit of
utilitarianism has ousted Sans Soucl
and Is getting ready to Introduce the
Today George Lycurgus the presiding
genius of the place for many years
past, takes his leave. A week ago the
last of the dinners, for which the place
Is famous, was served. It was a fare
well dinner at which many of thosi
who knew the place In Its old estate
were present. It was a sumptuous rt
past gastronomlcally, and for the time
the old spirit of Sans Soucl burr.nd
brightly. Paul Neumann was there and
presided and wit and humor and fancy
had full play. Tomorrow the place
will be tenantless.
Sans Soucl occupies what many con
sider the finest point on the Walklkl
beach. Twenty years ago Allan Her
bert established the place as the sea
side annex of the Hawaiian hotel. It
was designed as an Ideal seaside resort.
It was far out In the country then, and
the planting of trees and shrubs and
plants which have made the grounds
a rare botanical garden Involved car
rying water In buckets from the little
stream which landscape gardening has
since made one of the beauties of Ka
plolanl park. Many of the furnishings
were bought by Mrs. Herbert In Ex
rope and were of a sumptuousne?s and
quality that still show through their
years of use and sometimes neelen,
It was at Sans Soucl that Robert
Louis Stevenson lived during the times
he was In Honolulu and It was here
that much of his literary work was
done. J. D. Strong, the well known
California artist, and his equally talen
ted wife, spent a winter here and on
doors and panels have left specimens
or tneir artistic work.
Members of the Snreckela famllv on
their visits to the Islands have made
Sans Soucl their stopping place. It lias
been the homp of many choice sptrtts,.
the memory of whom will remoln nfter
grosser scenes of which It has been the
theater are forgotten.
Allan Herbert sold the place pomp
years ago to F. M. Hatch for $10,000.
Now It Is said to be worth $30,000 or
more. George Lycurgus whose lease
of the place has expired, has sold out
the furniture and furnishings and ex
pects soon to go to Europe. It has not
been definitely decided Just what Will
be done with the place, though un
doubtedly the present rather dilapidat
ed buildings must soon give place to
the general progress of Improvement.
HACK STAND CONDENMED.
The Board of Health has condemned
the hock stand at the corner of Fort
and Hotel street as being a public nui
sance and ordered Its removal. This
stand Is on private property, wlthlnjhe
lines of the Pantheon lot. The hacks
are operated by the Pantheon Stables
FOR THE BABIES.
There is no better medicine for the
babies than Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy. Its pleasant taste and prompt and
effectual cures make It a favorite with
mothers and small children. It quickly
cures their coughs and colds, prevent
ing pneumonia or other serious conse
quences. It also cures croup and has
been used In tens of thousands of cases
without a single failure so far as we
have been able to learn. It not only
cures croup, but when given as soon
as the croupy cough appears, will pre
vent the attack. In cases of whooping
cough It liquefies the tough mucus,
making It easier to expectorate, and
lessens the severity and frequency of
the paroxysms of coughing, thus de
priving that disease of all dangerous
consequences. For sale by all dealers

lescent electric light. Safe; nothing could

tleman of Honolulu came rushing down to
'he office of the Electrlo Company nnd said:
Give me ngures for wiring my houso. and I
vantltdono at once; no mare lamps for me.
Oast night a lamp tipped over and it came so
near setting lire to the house and burning my
children and 1 take nonore risks."
This is the sentiment of quite a number in
the past few weeks, who have ordered their
houses fltted with tho porfoct light.
Just think it over and make up your mind
that you want the host nnd safest light ; send
for the Hawaiian Klectrlc Company and tell
