Gas Is Demanded for Economy
GAS has supplantc 1 wood nnd coal in the kitchen.
The thrifty housew fc and all welJ-iegulatcd hotels use
Gas for cooking,
WHY ? Because it is Cheao, Quick, Clean, ready .for
instantaneous use day or uieht.
The Fire Insurance Companies make a reduction of 25
per cent when Gas only is used for cooking. WHY?
BECAUSE IP IS ABSOLUTELY SAFE.
Contrast your overheated kitchen with its coal hods,

THE VICTIMS OF A
(Continued from Face I)
of the Legislature, who know noth
ing about leprosy and at least ten
out of the eleven found not to be
lepers) How ninny more unfortu
nate victims of n terrible tnlstnko
are there on Molokal? How many
mistaken have tho examining physi
cians made? For It can hardly be
claimed that those who nro released
are cures, tho very physicians who
made tho re-cxumluatlons nduiittlng
that there Is no known cure foi
The poor wretches who have been
branded us lepers and have spent the
best years of thelt lives at tho Set
tlement as lepers are some of them
mere boys, others old men, others
men now In the very prime und vlg
01 of life. They ure respectively six
and seven years of age; one Is a
veteran of 79.
Those who were rc-examlncd nnd
found not to be lepers ure:
James Harvey, seven years old,
now In the Hoys' Home; John Ku,
six years old, also In the Hoys'
Home; Charles Walnul, 34 years of
uge; loane Kulmu, 3G; J. V. l'ule

Kaapunl, 27; Kahele Kana, 4S; Ke
HlnUiunl, 25, and N'nlwl, 79.
Nulwl, the old man, Is an old-time
printer of Honolulu. He Is a tine
appearing' man. with n long, flowing
beard, and he has never at any tlmo
exhibited any signs of leprosy, ex
cept that the fingers ot one hand
arc crooked nnd hard. Hut long be
fore he was sent to Molokal It was
u mutter of common knowledge that
he wits born this wuy und his hands
had nevigr undergone any change
whatever. They uro today as they
weio the day he was born. And now
he Is an old, old man who hus wait
ed weary years among the lepers for
the verdict which comes now just In
time to allow 111 in to spend the lust
days ot his life in freedom und
among his friends und relatives.
Twenty years boino ot them huvc
been there under the frowning pall
und surrounded by the shining sea
that has but them off from their fel
lows und from the world of man.
Twenty years they have borne the
name of lepers, though they were
well men. Twonty years they have
been shut oft from love and friend
ship and the companionship of their
fellows. Some of them have wives
und chlldien waiting for them out
In thu world of the free. Some of
them hud wIveH und children once,
but they have died while the hus

days and months und ycurs on the

Two of them havo long lives of Joy
und happiness before them, for they
ure still too young to remember ull
that they have looked upon during
the time they have been confined on
Molokal. Hut what, dreams will
come to them In their slumbers all
their lives! What horrlhlo shadows
will descend upon their souls In the
days of their manhood when some
faint ipiiicmbrunie of their lives
among the lepers comes back to

It Is understood that no reference

to talk over certain private business
