tho 9:15 train was taki'ii at Hono

Within tho past year two largo
now sights have ariuu, near town
and tho line, in the i'alanm and
Kalihi suburbs. Quo is tho building
for the Kauiehatiiuha Girls' School,
au imposing looking structure). The
other is tho establishment of the
Paeilio 1'hosphate and Fertilizer
Company. Lach of them will add
importance to Honolulu, but further
tnuuliou of them, at this time, is
There is nothing particular that
is now to notice Iroiu tho car win
dow at Pearl City or tho Peninsula.
A few people gut olF at the latter
place for a day iu tho cool groves by
tho lochs. That something is up at
Ewa plantation, however, is teen
before tho ear stops. There is a
staging around the tall chimney,
ml it is learned that the structure
is to bi) made several feet higher,
bringing it to a height of ll'Jfeet.
This is to reduce the heat iu tlio tire
room and improve the draught.
J. Garden of Honolulu is doing the
Work on tho new mill is also being
pushed forward. A basement has
betiu excavated dowu to bed rock,
adjoining tho present mill ou the
cast side, aud massive piers of
masonry will support the three
roller griudiug machlno now being
imported. Lumber is ou tho ground
aim partly wrought lor the struc
ture. Wheu this mill shall have
been completed tho dillusiou pro
cess, although iu operation only
three grinding seasons, will take a
permanent rest uxcepliug iu case ol
Mr. vou Holt bad sent word ahead
for horses, aud they were ou hand
s sturdy gray mare for himself aud
tho educated mule of the ranch for
his companion. Following the ei
tension Irom tho present end of the
rails we proceed a mile or two due
west over the plaiu. Mr. vou Holt
calls attention to tho beds of lime
stone through which the permanent
way has boon cut. Prof. Avordam
had said that what the soil of tide
couutry needs must is lime, and here
are untold deposits of it where it
can be shoveled into the cars, for
transportation direct to the fertilizer
works up the line.
At a poiut farther along, wo come
upon a big patch of iiiuestoue broken
up with tue steam plow iu adding a
large area to tho sugar plantation.
Coming to a fence across the line, a
detour is made through a rocky nou
tiou, growing up iu glue bushes.
The conductor kIiows remains of
ancient native industry, tho soil be
tween tho lava rooks once yielding
sweet potatoes, bauauaf, etc., iu
abundance to u population that has
now disappeared, riles ol loose
stones, bits of stone fences, aud
atone platforms for drying lisb, con
stitute tho remaius.
Emerging from this desolate look
ing tract, but which furnishes ex
cellent pnslur&go aud browsing for
cattle, the railway works aro again
struck. Au eucampuieut of several
touts is visited, with a solitary Euro
pean iu charge A long, shallow
cutting is lined with deserted picks,
shovels aud wheelbarrows, aud it is
conjectured that a gang is having
luuch somewhere iu the bush. Pur
suing the Hue further we come across
a Chiueso gang of moro than a score
working hard under a foreman of
tho same nationality. Wo now strike
out toward the Waiaunn mail road,
skirting the foothills of the Waiauae
mountains. The mill is uow several
miles behind, but here is a large
tract of laud newly broken up with
the steam plow, upon which a hott
of laborers is seeu planting cauo.
Au idea of the vast size of the Etva
plantation can ouly be gained by
traveling over it.
The road is now taken, giving tho
opportunity for a gay galop, in
which the educated undo proves it
self a superb animal. Then a trail
is taken through a young algeroba
forest to tho rauuh house, where n
windmill is pumping from a well
into a huge circular tank, whence
the water is piped to a row of cattle
pens. By tho way, the tank was
constructed for slowing Mr. Bar
tholomew's ill fated iuter-islnud tele
graph cable. To increase the water
supply, Mr. vou Holt had a tuuuel
driven iu some distance from one
side of the well, and the novel de
vice fulfilled itHobji'ct satisfactorily.
After rest and refreshment hero,
saddles are resumed mill, regaining
the main road, we soon reach the
lowclIUs ngaiubt which tlio ocean
is booming. Tlio promontories
forming tho approach lo Wniatiati
bar loom ni cramllv. and the tumult
of the breakers at our feel adds to
and tho oahorfl. It is cropping up '
tho mountain sides also, aud must ,
favorably affect the climate, as well ,
as in finitely enhauciug tho beauty, .
of the region. ;
From this point tho road is re- (
traced for a snort distaucp, and then
another diversion made to tho sea, '
by tho Waituanalo quarry road. At i
tho quarry an odd-looking pier is
suspended by guys away beyoud tho i
cliff!", which was ued for shipping
tlio limestone when tho quarry was i
being wotked. Here oro also the
remains of tho limekiln much batter- ,
ml by tho sea. Going theuco east
ward toward uaroor roini a strong
laud and water breeze is mot, and
Mr. vou Holt says thoro is a breeze
along this beach, no matter in what ,
direction tho wind blows. Hats have
to bo taken earo off approaching tho
Berber's Poiut lighthouse, where a
young gale is blowing. After
traversing a stretch of rough ground
the lighthouse is reached over
n cattily ll.it ai level as a billiard
table. Mr. Hat ton, tho light
liotno keeper, a very pioaant-'
spoken Hawaiian, with a little boy
living in a little cabin all aloue,
uivo tho travelers a hearty welcome.
Mr. vou Holt's pack of sandwiches
is not opened iu presenoo of hot
broiled fih and a capacious dish of
poi, quickly laid out under a cool
lanai by Mr. llatton. After refresh
ments all hands clambered 10 feet to
the top of the light houo by strong
iron staples fasteued iu tho iuaonry
of the round tower. Lest somebody
else nny give it away, tho writer
well coniess to n lime uacu
ward tie's iu attempting the almost
perpendicular climb. He, however,
got there all tho same with tho aid
of a hook ho improvised out of a
wrought iron rod, fastened to a rope
which he bound ronud his waist.
This was a precaution against any
giddiness that might occur at tho
unaccustomed elevation. By hook
ing ou at every successive round a
fall was fairlv well provided against.

As a place of residence Ho
nolulu presents advantages to
be found nowhere else in the
world. For people who prefer
high altitudes Nuuanu, Punch
bowl or Tantalus are places
where residences may be built
so that magnificent views of
the city and bay may be had
at all times. To others who
wish to be on a level with all
mankind, AVukiki has attrac
tions that please. If there is a
scarcity of land it will be felt
by those who enjoy the swish
of the waves along the beach
and where they can sit and
view the grandeurs of a semi
tropic sunset. There is very
little available land toward Dia
mond Head and as time passes
steps must be taken toward bet
ter facilities for reaching points
beyond it. It is possible that a
good road around the head
would be in the line of public
improvements, and, if the land
in that locality is owned by the
government, an increased trea-

ral times before, the Wertheim
Triplex Sewing Machine is the
best in the world. It is the
only machine that will change
the stitch from chain lo lock
without bothering with a sepa
rate and bungling attachment.
It is the only one we know of
that will sew three stitches by
simply moving a thumb screw.
Nor do we know of any that
has such magnificent tables as
those on the Wertheim. Every
part of the mechanism is con
structed with a view to simpli
city; the running parts are so
evenly balanced that a five year
old child can run it with ease.
The necessity for water motors
or dynamos for sewing ma

you pay for an ordinary hard
