After tho bark bad passed she

Mr. Smith Interested,
Tho rogular semi-annual trip of
tho Board of Health to tho Molo
kai settlomout was made last Sat
urday. Thoro were on board the
W. G. Hall, besides 81 deck pass
engors, 37 cabin passongers. Pro
eident Cooper, of the Board, is to
bo greatly complimented on tho
accommodation afforded the visi
tors. In the morning a tour was mado
of tho villago at Kalaupapa. Tho
meathoUao was first visitod, where
tho rations aro given out. Each
member of tho settlement recoivos
a pound a day of oithor meat or
fish as ho chooses. Tho method
of giving out rations has been
found on tho whole to be superior
to that of allowing so muoh ouch
weok in monoy for food, or to any
other method yet tried. The
cattlo aro killed twico a week.
Tho cemotery was next in line,
and from there tho party pio
ceeded to tho Bishop Homo for
