"I sort of pounded my enr n little

an unwonted nlr of bonhomie.
Tho cook creased his paper with one

Tho crew worked on the marsh that
afternoon and the subsequent days of
tho week. They labored conscientious

Blowly. At Christmas n nutnlior of the
men "went out," Most of them were
back ngnln after four or five days, for
while men were not plenty neither was
work. Tho equilibrium was nearly ex
act. But tho convlvinls had lost to Dyer
tho days of their debauch. Instead of
keeping up to 50,000 n day, as Hadway
hud figured wns necessary, tho scale
would not have exceeded 30,000.

The carpenter hnd also built two-lm-menso
tanks on runners, holding each
some seventy barrels of water and with
holes bo arranged that on tho with

sprinklers were filled by horso power.
A chain running through blocks at

like the open belfry of an Italian mon
astery, dragged a bnrrcl up a wooden
track from n water bole to an opening
in the sprinkler. When in action this
formidable mncblno weighed nearly
two tons nnd resembled a moving
house. Other men bnd felled two big
hemlocks, from which they hnd hewed
beams for a V plow.
The V plow wns now put in action.
Six horses drew it down tbo road, each
pair superintended by n driver. Tbo
machine wns weighted down by a num
ber of logs laid across the arms. Men
guided it by levers and by throwing
their weight against tho fans of the
plow. It was n gay, animated scene,
this, full of tho spirit of winter the
plodding, straining horses, the brilliant

yielding snow thrown to either side,
the shouts, wnrnlngs nnd commands.
To right and left grew white banks of
snow. Behind stretched a broad white

Into a deep creek bottom between hills.

Some of tho bridges bad sunk bcloiv

Others again wcro bumped up like fom

the plow cnrrled axes and cant hooks
for tho purpose of repairing extem
poraneously Just such defects which
never would hnvo been discovered oth
erwise than by tho practical experi

tho plow. Thorpe, who went along as
ono of tho "road monkeys," saw now
why such euro hud been required of
blm in smoothing tho way of stubs,
knots and hummocks.
When tho road had been partly
cleaned Rudwny started ono of bis
sprinklers. Wntcr boles of sultablo
slzo had been blown In the creek bank
by dynamite. There tho machines
wcro filled. Stratton attached his horso
to the chain and drove blm back nnd

tho slido way. At the bottom It wns
Capsized and filled by means of a long
polo shackled to its bottom and manip

Then Fred Green hitched his team
on nnd the four horses drew the creak

the road. Water gushed In fans from
tho openings on either side nnd beneath
nnd in streams from two holes behind.
Not for, nn instant ns long as the flow
continued dared the teamsters breathe

the runners tlKht to the ground. A
tongue nt cither end obviated the ne

That night it turned warmer. The
change was heralded by a shift of

Demosthenes, the overworked
restaurantetiriu Hilo, had served his
last duck and cracked his last oyster
shell. The tourist trade had
drawn heavily on his stock of lux
uries. Demosthenes took n look into
the little refrigerator where, there
lay in State one remaining duck.
"I hid this away; some of the boys
will come to town to-night hungry
as Lord how it rains and there's
"Hello-Demosthenes! I want
roast duck for two; this is Palmer
Woods; am coming to town; am at
Hakalau; will be there by the time
the duck is roasted."
Demosthenes-said "I told you so"
and conveyed the lone duck from
the little refrigerator to the oven.
John T. Moir, manager of Ono
mea, left Papaikott at this exact
moment, accompanied by a Terri
torial official, who was studying
the needs of the Big Island. Forty
minutes later the two were in Hilo
and they entered Demosthenes'
Cafe and called for a roast duck.
The honest heart of Demosthene
bled as he told the hungry pair
that his last duck was cooked and
awaiting his senatorial highness,
the Hon Palmer Woods who must
be at least as near to town as IIo
"Senator Woods will not dine
here to-nitrlit" sniil Mr. Moir.
I "He passed us on the road and
! said he was headed for the Bache
lor's Club. He will not come, let
us have the duck."
Demosthenes faltered and fell.
He served the cluck for Moir.
When, the remains looked like a

convention Senator Woods had ar

later, as he walked down Queen
street, Honolulu, he spied a big
wooden decoy duck. He bought
it and secured a dry goods box big
enough to hold a cookstovc and
filled it with excelsior and saw
dust, placing the wooden duck in
the center. He shipped it by
Wilder S. S. Kinatt to John Moir,
manager Onomea. Charges not
There was a hitch at Hilo which
caused the precious box to miss the
Onomea Express which left town
cariy in the mornum. Moir had
been notified that a box of perish
able freight had arrived for him,
made a big kick when he found it
had beeu left. At an expense of
$2.50 the Wilder agent sent the
box out in n special wagon. The
plantation folks had become
wrought up over this mistcrious
box with the perishable contents
and a few dozen spectators who
saw the manager himself open the
box carefully with a nail puller,
delving through much saw dust
and shavings, Mr. Moir probed
with his arms and finally he held
the wooden duck aloft. It was la
bled "This is a senatorial duck,"
and Mr. Moir said: Palmer is even
and one ahead."
