ACCIDENT TolflR. S. SHAW.
Last Thursdaj', Mr. Seeley Shaw,
of the Pantheon stables met" with a
rather severe accident at 'Waialua,
on this island. He was one of the
party that left town a few days be
fore that on a shooting expedition.
It appears that Mr. Shaw was in the
mountains near Waialua, riding
after a wild boar when his horse
fell, throwing him to the ground and
rolling over him. Mr. Shaw's com
panions, which included Dr. John
Erodie, were soon on the spot and it
was found that one of the shoulders
was dislocated. On turning him
over it went back into its place, and
.WW- Mr. Shaw was carried to the camp.
On Saturday he was driven to Dr.
Brodic's ranch, and is getting along
nicely. The rest of the party re
turn this evening, bringing Mr.
Shaw with them in a brake. His
many friends will wish him a speedy
THE COMPETITIVE DRILL.
A very large crowd of people was
in attendance on Saturday, to wit
ness the competitive drill between
Engine Companies No 1 and No. 1.
Punctually at 5 o'clock, two taps
on the Central Tower Del! started
the two companies from their res
pective houses. No. 2 engine was
drawn by horses and quicker than
it takes to tell was on Fort street
making for the Inter-island wharf
at a great pace. As it. passed King
street, No. 1 was some fifty yaids
along the street coming at a lively
rate in tow of a couple of saddle
horses. Eeforc the Honolulu Flan
, ing Mills had been reached No. 1
had gained considerably on No. 2
and arrived at the wharf only twen
ty seconds behind. It was quite an
exciting score a3 both engines sped
down the street, looking almost as
if there were on lire. Both com
panies had their hose quickly laid,
and then came the suspense of wait
ing for the water which had to be
got by suction from the harbor. At
last it came and through the hose
of No. 1. Cheers rent the air by
the admirers of the winning
company. No. 2 was only forty
seconds behind in getting water
and was applauded.
Unfortunately the proceedings
were inaned by several accidents
but not of a serious nature. Fore
man Eobt. More of No. 1 had his
foot badly burned, and the wheel of
the hose cart passed over Louis
Toussaint's foot, bruising his ankle.
Near the wharf a native fireman was
knocked down by the engine but es
caped unhurt. The judges of the
competition handed in the following
To the Foreman of Engine Com
pany No. 1 , Sir :
The undersigned who were re
quested to act as judges of the com
petitive engine drill on Saturday
evening bog leave to make this ic
Engine Co. No. 2 got to the wharf
at foot of Fort street at 5h. 4m, 15s.
Engine Co. No. 1 at fih. 4m. 05s.
Engine Co. No. 2 thus leading 20
Engine Co. No. 1 had the first
stream of water on, the time being
No. 1 oh. 7m. 35s. j No. 2 5h.

WHY HE DID NOT Q0 TO THE HOSPITAL.
HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AMI.
MY object in writing is two-fold:
to express my gratitude for a
great benefit, and to tell a short story
which cannot fail to Interest the
feelings of many others. It is all
about myself, but I have remarked
that when a man tells the honest
truth about himself he Is all the
more likely to bo of use to his fellow-creatures.
To begin, then, you
must know I had long been more or
less subject to attacks of bronchitis,
a complaint that you are aware is
very common and troublesome in
Great Britain in certain seasons of
the year. Some months niio I had
a very severe turn of it, worse, I
think, thnn I ever had before. It
was probably brought on by my
catching cold, as we aro all apt to
do when we least expect it. Weeks
passed by, and my trouble proved
to be very obstinate. It would not
yield to medicine, and as I also be
gan to have violent, racking pains in
my limbs and back, I became great
ly alaimcd. I could neither eat nor
sleep. If I had been a feeble, sick
ly man, I should have thought less
strangely of it ; but as, on the con
trary, 1 was hearty and robust, I
feared some now and terrible thing
had got hold of nic, which might
make my strength of no avail against
it, I say, that was the way I
Presently I could not even lie
down for the pain all over my body.
I asked my doctor what he thought
of my condition, and he frankly,
"I am sorry to have to tell you that
you arc getting worse!" This so
frightened my friends, as well as
myself, that they said "Thomas,
you must jo to the Hospital; it
may be your only chance for life!"
But I didn't want to go to the
hospital. Who does, when he
thinks he can possibly get along
without doing it? I am a labouring
man, with a large family depending
on me for support, nnd I might al
most as well be in my grave as to
be laid on my back in a hospital
unable to lift a hand for months,
or God only knows how long. Right
at this point I had a thought flash
across my mind like a streak of sun
shine in a cloudy day. I had heard
and read a good deal about Mother
Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I re
solved, before consenting to be
taken to the hospital, I would try
that wellknotvn remedy. On this I
gave up the doctor's medicine and
began taking the Syrup. Mark the
wonderful result! I had taken but
three doses within twenty-four hours
when 1 was seized with a fit of
coughing, and threw up the phlegm
and mucus off my chest by the
mouthful. The Syrup has loosened
and broken it up. Continuing with
the Syrup, the racking pain, which
L believe came from the bitter and
poison humors in my blood and
joints, soon left me entirely, and I
felt like going to sleep, and I did
sleep sound and quiet. Then I felt
hungry, with a natural appetite, and
as I ate I soon got strong and well.
I felt I could leap through the
air uilh delight 1
In a week 1 was able to go to my
work again. It doesn't seem possi
ble, yet it is true, and the neigh--hours
know it. There are plenty
of witnesses to prove it. And,
therefore, when I say I preach the
good news of the great power of
Seigel's Syrup to cure pain and di
sease far and wide, nobody will
wonder at me.
