But tho disappointment was

As Mr. Lowrio stopped off tho
train on his roturn homo from the
Coast lost Wodnesday aftornoon,
he pointed ncross tho track and
said, "In all my travels in Cali
fornia I saw nothing to como up
to tho littlo park." Anybody
from Honolulu only could truth
fully say tho samo thing. Thero is
a freshness to tho folingo and
flowers in tho Ewa mill park
which is absont in the public
grounds of this capital. Between

tho noise of tho train and the
playing of tuo band tho animals
wero rather excited anyway.
Approaching tho ranch houso
Mr. Cooper was in the lead. As
ho reined up near tho stables Mr.
Smith was carooring toward tho
samo point, but was noticed to be
leaning over aud holding on to
his left stirrup strap. That stir
rup was gono from tho tearing out
of tho buckle. While Mr. Smith
was in this posturo and in tho act
of taking a turn of tho roins
around tho pommel, his horso

outbuilding without itself touch
Mr. Smith, however, in his
leaning attitude was banged with
torrifio forco against tho houso.
Ho was swept out of saddle to tho
ground, whero ho lay stunned
and breathless. His hat was cut
clear through tho rim to his head.
Tho whack of his person upon tho
building had a sickening effoct
upon his riding companions. Mr.
Cooper, who was certain at first
his collonguo of nearly six years
was killed outright, when ho went
to tho table lator could oat noth

he lay without a sign of lifo, whilo
his companions used every nvail
ablo raeaus of restoration. Mr.
Ooopor cannot say how long, he
having boen too anxious to tako
