"Well, I don't know!" said the
Professor, as lie glanced quizzically
over the rim of his gold soectuclcs
towards the Cashier who had just
concluded a most harrowing story
connected with snakes and snake
poisoning. "There may be a whole
lot of truth in that story, but my
experience in the handling of
snakes and other reptiles has shown
me that the terrible dread which
most people have of snakes in
general is very very silly, and that
most of the remedies used to
counteract the poison of a snake
bite are far more harmful than the
"As a boy while pursuing my
studies in natural history, I was
rather fond of snakes, and would
trequenuy carry tnem around 111
my pockets. I remember one occa
sion when I picked up in the woods
a beautiful little fellow about a foot
and a half long; sleek, sinous and
graceful, and possessing that lovely
green tint which is so hard to
match, and putting him in my
pocket started for home.
"When I arrived in town, a lady
acci-sted me at the street corner and
enquired the way to a certain
locality. While giving the direc-
tions I was startled to see her throw
up her hands in horror, and, with a
yell of fright dash across the street,
utterly regardless of the danger
from passing teams and cars which
threatened her at every step."
"Now, what on earth can be the
matlftr with that woman?" said 1 to
a friend who happened to conic up
at that moment, "she seems to have
gone crazy all of a sudden!"
"Wouldn't be surprised if she
had, after seeing a necktie like
that!" was the response. "Why,
the devil can't, you be content with
ordinary cloth instead of wearing a
thing like that?"
"You see the little fellow had
crept from my coat pocket, crawled
under my vest, and was making
playful jabs at my chin, thrusting
out his little red tongue, and ap
parently having a high old time."
"But why the dickens should the
woman have got so scared? Even
if the snake had been poisonous,
she wasn't the one thai was going
to get hurt."
"Talking about antidotes for
Miakc bites many peole claim that
whiskey, taken in large doses, is
the most effective. My private
opinion is, that more snake-bitten
people have died from an overdose
of the remedy than from actual
"And that remind me of a rather
funny incident which happened to
a friend of mine while out hunting.
Tying his horse to a fence, he
passed through some thick shrub
bery, and while in the act of leaping
from a fallen log he saw a huge
'rattler' coiled within a foot of the
spot in which he was bound to
"As soon as his feet touched the
ground he gave a side spring to
get clear of the reptile, but a sharp
sting in the calf of his leg warned
him that he had been struck) and
on looking aroundhe found that
the rattler had disappeared.
"Frautic with terror, he threw
down his rifle and started for his
horse, making, according to his
own account, better time than he
had ever travelled in his life before.
Ripping open his saddlebags, he
took out a pint flask of whiskey
and swallowed the whole contents,
his hands and his whole body all a
quiver with nervous excitement.
The whiskey steadied his nerves
sufficiently to enable him to get at
his hunting knife, with which slit
his canvass leggings and hose. On
J laying bare the skin he perceived
two small punctures on the inside
of the calf, and around these he
immediately proceeded to carve.
"Hcfore making any deep incision
however, a closer examination dis
closed the fact that the punctures
had been made not by the fangs of
a snake, but by the rowell of his
own spur, , wucreupoii ue promptly

HILO TRIBUNE; HILO,

Experiments already made have
demonstrated the possibility of
making paper from sisal bagasse
and three bales of bagasse arc being
sent to the coast on the Nevadan
for extensive tcsls of the paper
qualities of the fibre remnant. The
paper which was made here from
bagasse is very crude, being a gray
ish white and or the consistency,
almost, of blotting paper. V. C.
Weedon, secretary of the Hawaiian
Fibre Co., is of the opinion, how
ever, that good note paper can be
made from the refuse. On the
Nevadan which sailed Sunday from
Honolulu for San Francisco, via
Kahului, there was a shipment of
thirty-two bales of sisal, of which
three bales are to be used in paper
experiments. About eight tons of
sisal was shipped altogether, and
the total output of the Hawaiian
Sisal Co this year will be about 200
tons. Sisal is bringing about $165
per ton in San Francisco now, there
having been an increase in the
price per pound of seven-eigths of
a cent within the last few weeks.
It requires about twenty tons of
fibre, and about forty-five per cent
of the,remainder is water. The re
mainder, or about one half of the
total, is bagasse and other refuse,
which can be utilized in the manu
facture of paper.
It is not the company's intention,
if the experiments prove successful,
to manufacture paper here. If
found to be profitable the bagasse
will be reduced to a pulp and shipp
ed in that form to the mainland for
paper manufacture. A plant for
the manufacture of paper in the
islands would require an investment
larger than the production of sisal
in the islands will warrant at pre
sent. There is no intention, either,
of putting in a cordage plant until
the acreage of sisal has been con
siderably increased. The company
now has 800 acres under cultivation
having recently put in 200 acres
more. Expenses of production arc
being reduced by the use of cheap
er fuel, an article with which ex
periments are being made, tha re
sults of which are kept secret.
Kiiitua Jurors Wait on Prosecution.
Julian Mousarrat, who is in the
city on busiuess, was a juror at the
present Kailua term of court and
from what he says the jurors in the
Third Circuit have anything but
bouquets for the Attorney General's
Department. The delay and ex
pense entailed upon jurors who
must leave their work and travel
eighty to a hundred miles to attend
court is the phase of the business
that causes jurymen to kick.
"Here are the facts," said Mou
sarrat. "The Court was called for
Wednesday, April 27. On that
day no Attorney General was there
and Court adjourned till Saturday,
April 30. On Saturday a represent
ative of the Attorney General was
there but asked an adjournment
until Wednesday, May '4. All
this time the jurymen who had
left their business to attend court
were waiting at their own expense.
"It's not that any of them object
to jury duty," said Mr. Monsarrat,
"but we don't like long vacations
in Kailua in busy times. I my
self had to go a hundred miles to
respond to the summons to serve
on the jury. There are lunas and
mechanics who draw $3.50 a day at
home and who for the week of
idleness in Kailua will draw down
four dollars. These men in the
Attorney General's office have cer
tain duties to perform and I should
think one of them is to be ready to
try cases when Court and jury are j
ready to do business. The jurors

outrageously treated and they want r ti ,
to be heard from. We people over '
in the Third Circuit want to assist I Chamhi;ki.ain'.s Cough Rkmkdy

I11 July next the British steam
ship Mnoti King, 7000 tons gross, i
will sail from New Zealand ports ,
and Sydney, New Smith Wales, for '
the port of Vancouver, with freight
and passengers, says the Vancouver
Province. She will be the first of
the large three steamships placed
on the route by the R. A . Alley &
Such is the gist of an interview
R. A. Alley, of Tacoma, gave The
Province this afternoon, says the
Victoria Colonist of April 19. Mr.
Alley arrived from Tacoma this
morning on business in connection
with this "new line of steamships.
Mr. Alley announced that at the
start sailings will be made every six
weeks between Vancouver and Aus
tralian and New Zealand ports, fin
route, inward and outward bound,
the steamships will call at Honolulu,
and most probably at Suva, in the
The line will serve three ports in
New Zealand, and it is calculated
that on account of the preferential
tariffs existing between Canada and
New Zealand a large trade will be
built up between the two countries
shortly. Leaving New Zealand,
the steamships will call at Sydney,
New South Wales, sailing thence to
Suva, and calling at Honolulu en
route to this coast.
Vancouver will be the first port
of call on this coast. Alter dis
charging passengers and freight at
this port the steamship will proceed
to Puget Sound, their principal
ports of call being Tacoma, where
they will load such out-bound freight
as offers from the United States.
Of course, out-bound freight will
also be received from Vancouver. '
Preliminary arrangements for the
inauguration of this new line of
steamships have been proceeding
for over a year past. Mr. Alley
stated today that the service would
have been in operation some mouths
ago, had not the war between Russia
and Japan broken out. He had
nearly completed the charter for
several steamships for the run, when
Japan stepped in and outbid him on
the charter prices, and consequently
he lost the vessels. Now, however,
the steamship Moari King, which
is now on the Australian coast, has
been chartered, and it is expected
that she will be ready to sail for
Vancouver in July. Negotiations
are now proceeding for the charter
ing of two other steamships, each
larger than the Maori King. They
will followed the latter vessel' to
this coast. Docking facilities for
the new service in the pprt of
Vancouver are now being arranged
for, and it is probable that the
Evans, Coleman & Evans wharves
will be used.
On Tuesday next Mr. Alley will
leave for San Francisco, where he
will meet an agent of his who has
recently been in New Zealand and
Australia completing traffic arran
gements connected with the steam
ship service. From San Francisco
Mr. Alley and his agent will proceed
to New York, thence they will go
to Ottawa to interview the Domin
ion government in connection with
a subsidy for the new line, which is
now receiving consideration at the '
hands of the Cabinet. From Ottawa
Mr. Alley will proceed to England
