looked lit vain for the diminished

the wickets were frequently too dead

"Ity the way, you may be surprls-

of the season generally, we hail
amazingly few really bad wickets.
.MiCarlneys hist visit to the Old
country was tin unqualified success.
Ills all-round play more than fulfill

txpeclally In his bowling and field

the least terror In tight corners,
"Hopkins, and consequently the

"Considering that O'Connor would
most certainly have been better

he was not played regularly, his re

ered good. He got hold of tho swerve
all right, and used it effectually on

with the ball wns no surprise to
those of us who hud been In Knglnnd

"In America a controversy has
been raised as to altering the consti
tution of a Davis Cup team after
playing a preliminary round, excep
tion having been taken to the Unit
ed States heating the llritish Isles
with one team last year and send
ing another team to Australia for
the final, whereas the llritish Isles
tenin. In the event of victory In Phi
ladelphia, would have gone on to
Australia unnltcred. A similar state
of affairs, It Is contended, pievatls
this year. It Is nrgued that, where
as the llritish Isles went down be
fore n powerful team in tho preli
minary tie, they might have beat
en the American team that subse
quently lost In Australia, and that
the conditions were, therefore, un
equal. On the score of fair play, n
plea has been made for the llritish
Isles to he opposed this week by tho
team America proposes to send to
Australia, the contention being that
we should have nn equal chance with
Australia of beating the Ame'rlrans.
Had these points been raised a few
years ago, 1 should have regarded
them of minor Importance, on the
rcore of Impracticably and n mutual
desire to meet ench other In dim

been altered with the Introduction

THE NEW PAINT'
For Indoors and Out
At Ia6t we have a perfect paint a paint specially j-.'epared
to eet climatic conditions in the Hawaiian Islands. The salt air
and humidity of this climate requires a different paint than that
prepared for climates subject to extremes of heat and cold. Long
experience has proven to us that this is a fact.
After a great deal of study and experiment we have evolved
a paint that meets island conditions perfectly. That paint is
ARMORITE. We predict for ARiVKDRITE a greater sale
than any other paint in this Territory as soon as the public be
comes acquainted with its merits. It will endure the salt, air and
preserve its lustre. It has great covering capacity and can be
obtained in a multitude of beautiful colors and shades. It is the
only house paint made specially for this climate.
We unqualifiedly recommencL ARMORITE We will
return the money to anyone who uses Armorite and is not satisfied.
