II0110I11I, Nov. 30. The Exec-1
utive Council will hold its first mid
probably last meeting with Gover
nor Carter this morning at 11
o'clock. At this meeting the fu
ture policy of the government will
be mapped out as far ns it is posi
ble to do so at present. All the
members of the council v ill attend
this first meeting excepting Trea
"There will be a meeting of the
Heads of Departments at 1 1 o'clock
to-morrow morning," said Gover
nor Carter last evening. "It is the
intention to map out the policy of
the government so far as is possible
at this time. This will be my first
meeting with the heads of depart
ments. No, Mr. Kepoikai has
not been asked to attend. He is
not one of the men appointed by
me and I do not consider him one
of the official family.
"It is not my intention to have
weekly m'eetings of the heads of de
partments. Instead it will be my
policy to appoint a certain hour
for each official, at which he may
report to me personally and at
which time the affairs of his de
partment can be discussed.
"The inaugural ball has been
fixed for a week from Tuesday.
The present invitation list is not
satisfactory. There are too few
Hawaiians on the list, and I am
anxious to get additional names."

The seed from which these pre
cious plants spring, were bought in
Loudon by Mr. Moir and they cost
$5 per dozen. Kach seed is about
the size of a mustard seed. The
plant was originally found in
Africa by an English army officer.
Mr. Moir bought three lots at $5 a
throw. One pactcage was given to
a friend in Honolulu. From the
other two Mr. Moir has a promis
ing dozen growths.
Something concerning this inter
esting plant follows, clipped from
the Scientific American:
. "Last April Captain Larymore,
the British resident in Northern
Nigeria, published a letter in which
he asserted that by placing two or
three pots of 'mosquito-plant' in
each room of a house, and others
along the windward side of the
veranda, the place could be kept
practically free from mosquitoes.
He describes an experiment he had
made, which showed that a mos
quito enclosed within a leaf of the
plant became stupefied, and he
added that an infusion of the leaves
of the plant was held by the natives
of Northern Nigeria to be more
efficacious than quinine as a remedy
for malarial fever. Captnin Lary
more suggested that the plant
should be used in barracks in India.
"Sir George JMrdwood, the well
the whole boundary of the gardens
was planted with 'holy basil' and
any other basils which were at
hand, with the result that the
plague of mosquitoes was at once
abated and the malarial fever dis
appeared from the gardeners and
others at work on the grounds."
