1 A CnlKornla Ilargu Drift to the Itlnr
On ono of tho coral roofa off tho
Marshall group, far away in tho
South PaciGo, thoro rests a largo
railway transfor bnrtjo, which was
carried by winds and curronts
from somo mint uu tho California
coast to ils present resting place.
Its ownersliii), homo port and tho
dato of its loss nro unknown, but
thero it is, and it drifted from
somo point on llio California coast.
John Crowliy, niato of tlio mis
sionary briy Morning Star, who
arrived at Man Francisco from
Honolulu on tho Australia on a
vacation trip, saw tho bargo and
gives tho proofs of its identity as
lur as it can bo ttaced.
Speaking nbout tho barge Crow
ley said: "Its vory presence was
unusual in Umt far-away clime,
and our curiosity was aroused at
once. I nuule a caroful examina
tion of it, but tho only marks of
identification on it woro tho word
'Transfer,' and tho abbreviation
'Cal.' Tho rest of tho namo and
the port had beon obliterated, but
enough remained to show that tho
bargo came from California.
"Thero woro narrow-gaugo
tracks on it, and a couplo of big
cranes still intact and very well
preserved. The bargo iteolf was
pretty badly weather boaton and
showed tho marks of many a
storm, but it was still in very
uood condition. It wns about 150
feet long, built of heavy timborB
securoly fastened together, and
was able to resist Uio powor of tho
sea in its long drift. Tho bottom
hnd been coppor covered, but tho
uativos stripped that off. Thpy
had mado an attempt to break tho
craft un. too. but that was bovond
their powor, as they lacked all ap
pliances to accomplish their
"Tho experiences of that bargo
would bo hard -to conjecture. It
may have drifted tho '1000 odd
miles which divido our coast and
tho Marshalls in a vory short
space of timo, or it might have
taken a remarkably long poriod.
I do not boliovo that it was lost
from this harbor, as it would bo
practicably impossiblo for such a
craft to get out of tho bay and
straits undetected. I am inclined
to tho opinion that it was carried
from soroowhoro on tho lower
coast, perhaps from San Pedro or
San Diego, and I am in hopes
that tho publication of its discov
ery may load to its identification."
Tho trip of tho bargo is inter
esting in another direction bo
sides mousing siinplo curiosity.
Tho curronts of tho Pacific are
being mado tho subject of scienti
fic study, and tho drifting barge
adds fresh data tolhat already

Honolulu's warm climate is
conducive of thirst to a greater
degroo than that of a colder zone.
Tho avorago business man losos
also, to a degroo, tho amount of
onorgy and nervous force common
enough in tho bracing air of
American cities. Those two phases
of our climato make it moro
necessary than olsowhoro to stim
ulate tho system with an iuvigor
ant. No moro healthful or puror
stimulus, or ono moro delightful

Pabst Milwaukeo boor. It is a
delicious drink and is constantly
