their reflections on whnt they

"Tho coffee world throughout,"
the circular says, "is practically in
the same condition as exists iu tho
States. AH tho trade is interested
in higher prices, not for tho pur
pose of buying, but with the view
to realizing present largo hold
ings, tho volume of which is liko
ly to bo increased from month to
mini Hi." As tho Messrs. Cross
man's previous circular has been
proved correct in its estimates of a
surplus, their present one is on

plethora of supply they make is
an additional argument for es

a public benefactor for a long time

especially, of the town. Dwelling
houses for rout havo been general
ly of a poor giado and scarce in
Hilo. Tho rocont increased demand
has been but slowly promoting a
supply, whatovor tho roasons for
such a Btato of affairs may have
boon. By his schomo on tho
lines that have beou successful in
Honolulu, to tho extent of pro
viding comfortable homes of their
own on easy terms for people of
modorato means, Mr. Desky will
vork a great social improvement
in Hilo, thoro is not the least

It may not pay tho dealer to
handle such goods alone but
if one of our 1800 customers
wants Armour's Sliced Bacon
in tins we feel under obligations
to that customer to keep a
stock on hand to supply his
wants. Thnt's how we came to

it. Now our sales averago
nearly a dozen cases a week

ono tin at a time Armour's
goods are all right, particularly
his sliced bacon.

California Pig Pork is a
delicacy here because more
