TRAGIC DEATH OF
Drownt In a Pit Vhlch, Was Recently
Dug In the( Plantation
A letter received from II. M. Over-
cud ut Holualo.i, North Knna, con
tains tho following account of tho
sad death of n young Portuguese hoy:
On Tuesday evening, whllo at din
ner Mr. Scott ciiinc In to tell mo
that Auugsl's hoys had Just como
along and Informed him that they
had deen up to tho mauka (tho hlg
one) reservoir with Henry Pico (12
years old) nnd ho was under the wa
ter yet. I Rot somo Japs and a ron
plo of natives and went up nnd got
a native to go In nnd bring the body
out. It seems tho plantation had
deen ut work up there getting ready
to lean tho reservoir out and had
dug it pit 10 feet dy 10 feet square
dj r-nven feet dcop In the mud, look
ing for tho 8-Inch pipe to let off tho
water. It wns then dry The rain
i-nino on nnd covored tho entire rcsci
nlr with about ono and one-half
rect of water, filling up this pit. Tho
hoy must have been plajlng around
In tho shallow water and walked Into
this hole. At the time ho fell In tho
pipe was open and the suction ot tho
water must hnvo held him down, ns
there wbb hut little wtucr coming
out of the pipe when wo got there.
Tho native brought him up tho first
timo ho went itndc. for him. We had
tno doily down nl the office dy 9:30
p. m., nil dono In about threo hours.
It was n sad sight to see that little
fellow's milk-white body drought out
of the water In the moonlight nway
up in the dark woods. It quite up
set mo for 21 hours. I havo not
seen any of tho family since.
As I wns walking down Fort street
yesterday afternoon I saw a very
charmingly dressed joung lady cross
ing King street Unfortunntely, the
heel of her shoe caught In the car
track and wrenched the heel off, nt
tho same time spialnlng her ankle.
A friend of the lady happened along
Just nt the time tho accident occur
led. Whllo passing hy I heard tho
"Why don't jou suo the com pan J ?'
"Whj-, no; I can get moro satis
faction dy going over to Vlckcr's Re
pair Shop on Union street nnd get
my shoes repaired at onco at a reas
onable price. It costs too much for a
lawyer and takes too much tlmo."
Tho moral ot this story is that It
jou want to bo "wcel-hcoled," ceo
mm w tow in
In spite ot Its being In tho mlddlo
of tho Pacific, Honolulu prides herself
on being upto-dato. And, Judging
Irom the handsome, full lino of Spring
ctyles in suits that has Just como til
for Sllvn's Toggery dy tho Ahmoda,
i ho Is right In thinking so.Tlu-se
suits, tailored dy tho Hart, Schaffnor
& Marx experts, are tho finest that
1 avo been Been In Honolulu for somo
tlmo. Tho man who Is thinking of
getting himself genteel apparel tor
