the night, because' the amount of
heat stored in the rocks during the
day gives nature a seeming tardi
ness in her labor of radiation.
We arc not subject to severe rain
storms, but the most copious down
pour disappears almost as rapidly
as it falls. The earth is so porous
and riven with fissures one never
sees running water here except
down a Government road.
The unique and alluring scenery
to be found at every point of the
compass differs from that of any
other section of the Islands, beg
gars description and has to be seen
to be appreciated; the beautiful
lake of clear water, appearing deep
green from reflection of surround
ings, situated in an extinct cone
crater has no paralel ; the warm
crystal waters of the natural rock
ribbed spring amply nud pleasur
ably affords that which is "next to
Godliness," and the wonderful
"lava trees," as they are called,
assuming varied shnpes and forms
as vases, trees, arches and many
grotesque figures arc not to be
found anywhere else on earth.
The country is replete with enter
tainment for pleasure seekers,
while the panoramic changes of
scenery and climatic influences
restore the flush of health to the
pallid check from which it may
have faded' away.

The hcalthfultiess and desirabil
ity of the Puna Sugar Co's planta
tion as a place of residence is
proven by its climatic conditions as
well as the actual experience of its
inhabitants. The equability of
temperature is unsurpassed and
without excess, as the mercury os
cillates between 58 and 86 degrees
the year round, the mean daily
range being 21 2-15 degrees. We
have unusual porosity of soil, mod
erate relative humidity, prevailing
winds from the ocean and a com
parative absence of rainfall during
Kapoho, the postoffice, and name
of the first section of the plantation
is situated almost upon Cape Ku
mukahi, far enough inland to es
cape the glare of the oceaifaild hot
too far away to reap the full benefit
of the breezes which come to us
laden with purities gathered in a
passage of thousands of miles over
the sea. These winds fan us with
wings of life-giving ozone nnd cool
us with tlicir saline properties,
which being great conductors of
caloric, abstract the heat from our
bodies as they pass on to cheer
others in their course; they sweep
back into the mountains germs
generated in the forests and settle
ments above us; are seldom stormy
enough to attract attention and arc
free from discomfort and dust
dust, a most successful spreader of
disease, is kept in subjection by re
peated showers at night. Every
body knows that the moisture of
clouds coming from warm sections,
as prairie, desert or the sea, is con
densed and precipitated in rainfall
when coming in contact with a
cooler atmosphere as that of higher
altitudes hence the frequent rains
upon the windward side of moun
tains. This immediate section of the
district of Puna has but little alti
tude, and no extensive lorests,
though quite sufficient for that
happy interchange of respiration
which is maintained between the
two great kingdoms of animal and
vegetable life, the one utilizing the
gaseous debris of the other wherein
man exchanges his cast off carbonic
acid gas for the expired oxygen of
plants. We tire bounded on three
sides by the sea and have a vast
j acreage of almost bare lava. These
I conditions tend toward maintain
I ing the warmth of the day well
into the night, and the clouds drift
ing over from the sea in the day
1 experience no change in tqmpera
I ture, so carry on their moistening
freight to the hills.
1 As the sun disappears in the
levelling the terrestrial radiation,
, which is seldom arrested here by
the extent of cloudiness, induces
the necessary lowering of tempera
ture nud we have rainfall nt night

quently, during the latter hours of

Washington, Dec. 16. Just be

day after a hard trip from Papaaloa.
Mr. Johnson reports the road in a
fearful condition several culverts
having been washed away. He
also said that all hands were called
up on Christmas Eve to save the
Papaaloa mill from going in to the
sea, so severe was the storm. He
thinks that it will be three weeks
before the road will be open for
Mr. Johnson remained in Ililo
but a day, starting for the country

I have a few words to say regard
ing Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
It saved my little boy's life and I
feel that I cannot praise it enough.
I bought a bottle of it from A. E.
Stcere of Goodwin, S. D., U. S. A.,
and when I got home with it the
poor baby could hardly breathe. I
gave the medicine as directed every
ten minutes until he "threw up"
and then I thought sure he was
goiug to choke to death. We had
to pull the phlegm out of his mouth
in great long strings. I am posi
tie that if I had not got that bottle
of cough medicine, my boy would
not be on earth today. Join, Du
