nourishment at 2 o'clock and ap
parently fell into a refreshing
slumber. The SUtors keeping tho
loving vigils noted what they
thought a gratifying change, and
the stillness of the patient was
being contemplated by them only
to find that it was death.

party 'lighted and mado a pro
found investigation of suporGcial
geological conditions. As a piece
of deal, pooket knives and impro
vised hammers of stons wore tbo
only implements available, the
examination rovealed nothing inoro
than that an outcrop of tufa strata
wasaneiliumlyvfriablo. From tho
knowledge of appearances
iu the roilwey cuts near
tho spot, howover, it was
tho opinion expressed by several
that the diggings of gravon any
wh re thereabout would not be
too difficult. The supposition wa
that only thin layers of soft rock
would be oncouutered with ample
depth of soil beneath.
Dr. McGrow dissented from
this opinion. As ho has rondo
extousive explorations of tho lands
in question ins country resi-
denco being only a short distance
beyond tnero is no doubt that
bis viow will be carefully welch
ed. Indeed, it was common con
soot, anj way, that no decision
nhould be in ado adopting the Ha
lawa site until boring tests prov
ed its suitability.
Another stop was made, with a
similar sort of practical inspec
tion, at the Puuloa read crossing
on the Moanalua Bide. Heio no
more decisive results were obtain

It is tbo end of the plains next to
