why those Holes ?
It hits been remarked that sonic of
the newly made roads hi mid mound
'Honolulu lmvo already begun lo
'bIiow irregular 'depressions and to
wear into holes in spots. These
roads were apparently constructed
on sound pr'meipiCH and well made.
Why then this irregular wear wheie
there is nothing' irregular in the
nature of the trafllc to account for
it? It is probably due to the fact "
and fact we arc told it is that the
broken stones of which the.so roads
' are made arc of uneven sizes.
Macadam, the father of stoue roads,
'insibted that the stones should not
only be broken into small pieces,
but that each piece should be as
nearly as possible of equal size with
the others. "Wherever this nilc is
disregarded roads will always wear
into holes, however well made in all
Ou Friday morning a small paity
of gentlemen left town for Mr.
Campbell's ranch at Ilonouliuli.
The object of the visit was to make
an inspection of the fiibt Pulsometer
pump that had been erected ou the
islands, and to see if the pump would
do what it was claimed it could do.
The circumstances of the. trial
were as 1'ollow.S : A great part of
tho ranch consists of extensive plains
about 73 feet above the level of
the sea. Mr. Campbell uses these
to fatten his cattle on, and io pro
Tide enough water to keep a largo
herd on these plains, ho had had an
artesian well bored, lie obtained
a strong flow of water enough to
fill a 7 inch pipe, at a depth of
6U0 feet, but it would not rise higher
than within 155 feet !J inches of the
surface. To render it available for
use it would have to be pumped up,
and for this put pose, Mr. Campbell
arranged with Messrs. M. Y. Lowell
and W. H. Wagner, the agent on
these Islands, to erect a Pultiomclcr.
and'ee if it would do the work.
They stalled in and placed a No.
C Piil&omctcr, whicli had already
been in use over 7 years, al the
height the wafer lose to in the well
shaft, and obtained a small portable
boiler, such as is used to drive arte
sian well bores, and capable of carry
ing from 80 to 90 pounds steam.
This they connected with the actual
pump by two tubes, lo convey
steam. They then arranged for suc
tion for 20 feel below the height
the water rose to in the well, in case
it should give out.
No machinery is used, no com
plex pails nothing but a simple
boiler, two tubes or pipes capable of
being opened or shut by taps, and
tic actual pump.. One man could,
and did attend to the whole of it ;
and there is nothing to get out of
outer, so thai any ordinary laborer
can take charge of it.
When the trial took place it lifted
a continuous stream of water it ft.
Sin. above the level of the ground,
that is, 7tlfl. loin, from the top of
tho well. This stream of water was
;J4 inches. If the pump had
been larger it would have lifted
more a No. 10 will lift nil 8 inch
.stream. The sleum picssiuc then
wu.s 10 pounds, and it was lifting il'-'
gallons u btrokc, with GO strokes to
Afterwauls the trial w.is changed ;
il was uiochj tut lift the stream to a
height of only 10 feet fioiu the top
jf the well, that is, lo uboulj f feel
-above Uc groiind'b surface. Tho
steam prcsslirc was gradually reduc
ed until it failed to lift the slicain
that height. 'This was the case at
lU-nouiidspicssuio, but it success
r.iised the slrciim at about !?0
strokes to the minute at 12 pounds
Tnc tihil was so successful that
Mr. Campbell intends putting down
more wells and having more of these
pumps. In our next issue we shall
give an account of Oie pump ilfeclf
and the principle "on whicli it is
based, and in futuie issues other
valuable hint-, suggestions, and

-A short, 'time ago) handsome'
young woman called at a Vienna
hospital, stating she -had become
suddenly deaf in one ear., and wished
to be treated. But the cause of her
deafness she refused to reveal to
anybody but Professor (Srubcr. the
specialist. This gentleman was soon
in attendance, and after a good deal
of coaxing, managed to extract the
following information from the hesi
tating and blushing maid : Her in
tended had just returned from a
long journey. She had gone to the
station lo meel him, he had put his
arms round her. pressed his lips lo
her light car, and given her u re
sounding kiss. And at the same
moment she felt a sharp twinge,
and had been deaf ever since. Pio
fessor G ruber at once made a local
examination, and announced a rup
tuic of the tympanum, resulting
from too hearty a kiss. Let this be
a warning to all young ladies about
to marry, and also to those who
wander unwittingly under the sacred
mistletoe al Christmastide. Do not
struggle when a kiss is impending,
bul allow il to fall in the proper
place, otherwise an car may eome
within the line of flic, and deafness
