designs, is in the reach of the ordinury man.
Come early and avoid the rush.

Fine dinner sets and the

Now, we are going to tell you about a hand
somo piece of furniture. Not only is this
Secretary Book Case pretty, but it is useful
bb well. On one sido you have adjustable
shelves that can bo made to fit any size book.
At the top of the other sido is a fine French
Plate Bevel Mirror, below this is a complete
Writing Desk fitted out with holes, drawors
and other accessories necessary to a well
ordered desk and completed with a folding
shelf that can be let dewn when writing and
closed and locked afterward. Below the desk
are three drawers that come in very handy
for holding writing material and odds and
ends that accumulate about a piece of furni-
A Corrpapoudeut Argtir Anulnot a
Editoii Bulletin: As tho fence
law now stands, it is not an cqun
blo measure. Neithor will tho
now auiondmont correct tho ovil,
but rathor tend to make matters
worse. A privato owner is com
pollotl (barring an opposito de
cision by tho fonco commissioners)
to pay for half of tho fonco orcctccl
botwoon his lands and thoso ho
longing to tho govornnicnt. Tho
amendment, as sot forth in House
Bill No. 21, makes tho Iosbuo of
government lands as much of a
beneficiary as tho govornmont it
Belf, but ameliorates tho condition
of tho other party in no way what
ever. Hardships, under tho con
ditions of either the old or amend
ed law, are bound to bo worked
against both sides in individual
For instance; supposo a case of
an ahupuaa or comparatively
largo tract, containing a number
of kuleanoB. Tho kuleonas may
nei'd fivo miles of fenco to sur
round thorn. Tho outsido area
may embrace but three or four
hundred acres of grazing, agricul
tural or other land. Tho govern
ment leases, undor tho dotostablo
long torm systom, the remaining
government land to a grozior.
Although tho land may bo of
littlo valuo tho lessee may compel
ench kuleana owner to fence his
place. This is palpably a caso of
hardship, against tho interest of
th'o small owner.
On tho other hand, a privato
owner may havo a largo and for
tilo tract which he desires to
fonco, and, undor tho anionded
law, could compel a government
lessee to bear half tho oxponso.
Inasmuch as tho lessuo docs not
enjoy Uiri benefit of tho increased
valuation of tho property ho occu
pies, ho would bo compelled, in
an extromo caso, to pay a heavy
Bum, in addition to his leaso
money or yearly rental. Ho
might havo takon tho ground for
a very short timo only. Iu evont

But, whoro an occurrence of tho
latter kind happonnd once, ono of
tho former class would, in all
probability, happen many times
and oxperieuco has taught, the
world ovor, that tho privato ownnr
would suffer most; especially tho
small ownor, who is least ablo to
bear tho burden imposed upon
In his romarks npou tho law in
tho case, tho Attorney General
dilated at groat length upon tho
possible disadvantages under
which tho losseo might bo placed,
but mado very fow romarks upon
tho other sido. Heropoatedmauy
timos tho assortion thut tho privato
ownor had a primo opportunity of
escape from tho ovils of iujustico
in tho action of tho fonco com
missioners. True and so has tho
lessoo of govornmont land. The
commissioners havo performed
much excellent work, as is borno
out by court decisions, rondored
on cases appealed from thorn.
Thero need bo littlo fear but that
thoy will render as emiablo de

vornmout Iprsco who has a ton,
twonty or forty-year leaso should

fonco to protect his leasehold, aud
in caBO of short tuuo leasos thoro
need bo no fear that a lessee
would bo compelled by tho com
missioners to Bpond an exorbitant
amount of money for fences after
tho intrinsic value of his lonso had
