weather in years as wo had a
week ngo; the present relief
may bo only temporary and
the hot spell may return at
During warm weather some
people's ideas go to cold drinke,
others to ice cream. To buy it
means money, to make it
moans economy. Freezers vary
as everything else tho Com
and the White Mountain
are so much alike you cannot
tell the difference oxcopt in the
price if you buy in other shops.
With us tho Whito Mountain,
f which has the longest pedigree,
is tho cheapest; it's tho way

more for it than wo do becauso
they don't buy right. We sell
them varying in size from ono

with us as tho stars in the

His cure, tho result of many years
of exhaustive investigation and
study, has boon successfully tried
by Dr. Holmes upon ono patient
a woman woll known in Brook

"So absolutely certain am I

Dr. Holmes' method of treating
a leper pationt is as singular as it
is heroic. Tho pationt is placed
in a glass case, into which tho
smallest possiblo amount of air is
admitted. Cortain vapor fumes
aro then forced into tho case
through tubes, and thus tho treat
ment consists entirely of inhala
tions by tho patient of this vapor,
which Dr. Holmes claims will
kill tho leprosy microbo, and after
thus killing all tho microbes in
tho system of the patient will ren
der tho blood purer than before it
became infeoted by tho loprosy
microbe. Theso inhalations, which
aro continued for from fifteen
minutes to half an hour, with in

Manager Ahrens of tho "Waia
noo plantation and his wifo enter
tained n numbor of their friend b
on Saturday evening, n largo num
ber being present from Ewn and
Honolulu. Tho ovoning was Bpent
in music, singing and dancing
nnd in partaking of tho lavish
hospitality of tho host aud hostess.
Tho festivities were brought to an
earlier oiul than was intended, as
many of tho goutlomon present
wore compelled to leave on ac
count of a iiro near tho mill.
All day Friday tho employes
aud othors about tho mill noticed
a very peculiar smoll but wore
uuablo to account for it. On Sat
urday morning smoko was seen
issuing from a big trash pilo
which stands nenr the mill and
trash houso and about equi distant
from both. Men worontoncoputto
work digging to got at tho sourco
of tho firo and water
was brought from tho mill through
n lino of pipo. Ou Saturday
ovoning nbout 11 o'clock llaraes
broko out on tho side nearest tho
trash houso and it looked for a
time ns if that structure, ovor 200
foot long, was doomed. Mauagor
Ahrons, John Wright and others,
who wore at the manager's houso,
were sout for, and directed opera
tions. A forcoof Portuguoso woro
roused from thoir beds and set to
work with pitch forks, sacks and
buckets to koop tho flamos down.
Engineor Wright kept a two inch
stream playing ou the firo
wherever it was most needed, that
being aH tho force of water avail
able owing to the scarcity of
water in tho reservoir. It was 8
o'clock yesterday morning before
the firo was under control so that
the tired out workers could bo
sent to bod and a frosh gang of
mon put on. About 11 o'clock
j esterdny the firo broko out again
ou the sido nearest tho mill aud
for two hours it was all tho men
could do to control it with the
small water supply. At 2 o'clock
manager Ahrens gavo up all hopo
of over putting tlio firo out, and
had a forco of labor lay down n
couplo of tracks aud load the trash
into cauo cars. It was then sent
down to tho wharf and dumped
into tho sea. Tho pilo of burn
ing trash is between 30 and -10
feet high and about tho samo dia
meter. Tho causo of tho fire was
spontaneous combustion, and ns
tlio pile in its presout condition ib
a constant monaco to surrounding
property it must all be taken away
nt a grout expense to tho company,
as tho work must bo prosecuted
night and day until completed.
Waiauao people aro much ox
orcisod ovor school accommoda
tions. Mr. Abernothy, tho prin
cipal, estimates tho nttoudnuco
will bo 1G5 this coming torm. At
present there is only scant room
in tho school house for 100 pupils.
Tho accommodations for teachers
nro also wofully lacking, thoro
boing only ono small cottago now
ocoupied by Mr. Abornethy and
his wifo. Thore is no placo whoro
extra lady teachers can find board
and lodging in tho village, tho

room to sparo. Mr. Abemothy's
suggestion that tho Board of Ed

to his cottago sooms to bo thoouly
feasible plan and is endorsed by
