of water being accompanied by intense
electrical displays of lightning mid

day's milk and cream soured ns a con

s A (Iriicsome Hud.
In the work of excavation for the
widening of the street at the comer of
Amaula mid Hridge streets, Puiteo, the
workmen unearthed several well pre
served skeletons last Friday morning.
There were three in number and judging
from the size of the skulls and develop
ment of the Iwnes, they were believed Jo
be the remains of n woman, a man ami a
hoy. Much of the frames were found in
a sitting posture, buried about four feet
deep and some distance removed from
ench other. From their decayed condi
tion the bodies must have been buried
ninny years ngo. The oldest inhabitant
does not recnll that this spot was ever
used as a biiriul place or graveyard, al
though it is slated by old residents that
the natives hud n common practice of
burying their dead ut their very door
steps. This may explain their presence
here, for there is mi old Hawaiian hurinl
ground on the hill above Puiteo, which
since the memory of man runneth not to
the contrary, has1 been used by the natives
us the Inst resting place for their dead.
The discovery caused considerable ex
citement ut the lime in that pait of town.
A Suspicious Dentil,
Kiiimi, a native young man, aged about
nineteen, a resident at Waiimku, rode

dition mid it is said tumbled from his
horse. Yesterday morning he wos found
dend in bed with his skull crushed in two
places, ami suspicious circumstances sur
rounding his death caused an investiga
tion by Sheriff Andrews. A corouor's
jury was summoned yesterday afternoon,
which went to the scene and examined a
number of witnesses. It was learned that
Kaimi had had a row with his wife, which
ended in a struggle und a fall. It is
claimed that the ilitmkeu mail fell upon
some broken gluss in the yard, which
I caused his death,
