How iniiiu of us arc llicro wlio ciui
cvor forgot tho first tlmo wo hoard
n tilwnncranli. listened lu the mlUtiro
of arr.itthliiR and siiuealiltiB 'lltai
broke through tlio voice of tlio singer
ninl then eat hack and eNrlalined
"wonderful." Later nleo tlio many
wear hours that wo soiit listening
to the Mime thliiR which sonio kind
friend would Insist on starting up for
our amusement during the evening.
Wo often felt Inclined to plead a no
cro loolharho and lioal It to get
nnay from I lie fiendish tortiuc. That
wns In the old das, now things nrc
Wc go Into a sloro and buy u rec
ord and wo hear Iho voleo of Home
singer who Is thousands of miles
away and wo clasH It as good or had
Just as It stilkes us. Wo nocr glvo
a thought to the tiouhlo, not to s.iy
tho money that must tic cxiicndoil to
get tho records. Kacli of tho hlg ma
nufarturing companies have men who
do nothing olfo bill travel around tho
world, stopping on at all sortB of odil
corners, sweating under a tropical mm
or freezing In a cold country that wo
.Hitting In comfort may satisfy our
curiosity concerning the outlandish,
music of somo equally outlandish
land. These men aro llko llmvvn's
cows they coino ono after ono anoth
er but unlike these they are very
kcldom heard of. To meet with one
and hear him talk Is a privilege not
often enjojed. They tiavel ns quiet
ly as iwsslble, p.ich ono wllh his eyes
iklnned for tlio other fellow and each
one anxious to get a heat on him.
Away ahead of them Is an advance
agent who draws up contracts and
lias everything fixed. The engineer,
as ho Is called, drops in, makes tlio
records and later tlicy are sejit down
to the contractor and m1''! through
his More. The ouisfdo public do not
know unythlng about It until they
buy the new records anil thou they
seem to havo an Idea that they aro
all made back at tho factory. So
they aro In ono sense, but all the.
songs nrc sung Into tho recorder right
next door to jou. It Is a secret gamo

The von Hamnir Young Co., Ltd.
noltilii for tho last IHo wcckn making
records? Ho Is one of thou) secret
agents of the hlg conip.iny and bus
sent mvay about u hundred flno l co
ords which will como down hero lat
er oif and bo sold. They uro nil Ha
waiian nnil all Iho best hlngcrs In
Honolulu hnu stood In front of tho
born and douo .their turn.
Me Is an Interesting man and well
worth It.nlng a talk to, that Is If sou
("in get him to talk. A II u I lot In
man held Mm up at the point of a
pnicll esterday afternoon and he
came actoss accordingly "How often
dp I make Ihcso Irlps," wiping tho
perspiration olf his forehead mid guz
Ing fau,lously out of tho window at
tho Vky't "How often do you havo
this sort of weather down hero, not
as often as I make tlieso trips I hopo
for I make them all Hie tlmo I start
out from iho head office In New York
n nil may bo gone a year nnd iiiav bo
thice I can nccr tell until I get back
again. I generallj circle Iho globe
before 1 am through. My work con
sists of making Iho records In the
original and after that they aro taken
In hand by the facility and turned
out ns ou bu. them.
"The process of making them !
more or less a secret one but 1 can
gio ou tlio general outlines of "how
It Is dime. I IK up my machluo nnd
attach a big bom to It. The singers
come nlong mid ring Into this. The
results of their work Is recorded on
a tablet nml these arc then rent back
to the factory. When they get there
they nio electroplated and then n. ma
trix Is cast from this. This matrix
Is placed in n mnchluo and tbeu Iho
lecoids are pressed out. They are
pressed out nnd not as most people
seem to think Blampod out.
Loose His Voice.
I'xperloneo? Oh I run up against
a good many but one of 'the fiiinlcst
that I call to mind was with one of
tlio court singers In I'ckln Ho had a
contract all mailo out and was gojng
to sing for us but when bo saw tho
horn and found out 1 1 1 a t he hail In
sing Into that why he refused point
blank. Yos, sir, ho said Hint If ho
King Into that he would lose his voice
and nccr get It back again. Wo tiled
all sorts of arguments but there was
nothing doing and wc bad to do with'
"What do we do with Chinese roc
onls. Why wo sell them and l'o a
big sale for them too. You sco It all
depends on how ou look at a thing
as to how It appears to jtm. Now
wo think that the Chinese, tho Hl
amese, the Arabs and tho Indians
umong whom I go nnd tako rccordsj
hae no music to put on a record
Neither they li.ivo nccoiillng to our
Ideas but If It comes to a matter of
that they will ask mo Ilia same ques
tion. Wo havo no music, according
to them, only f-onio wild sort of nolso
that Is neither rli.Mnc nor reason. The
use of tho phonograph has becomo
world wide. There aro thousands of
them lu uso In China. They hnvc
their own lecords and enjoy them
Just as much as we do ours. The
Arabs aro groat enthusiasts nnd so
aro the IiuIImiih.
"Ono point which may be of Inter
est in connection with the latter Is
Hie fact that they are gradinlly over
coming their Ideas as lo caste III con
nection with- them. Tho high caste
men aio coming to want lo have them
Just ns well as the others and ll inn)
lie that they will play Ihelr part In
doing away lo a certain extent with
he caste business.
"Speaking of the wldo extent of
ground covered by tho phonograph I
icmember a story that was brought
lu by ono of our men and which Is
perfectly t nc. Some man away up In
Alaska lost hlmt,clf and only bad n
i.mall quantity of provisions with him
lie wandered on day after day and n'.
last got weak and llrod, There seem
ed no piospecl of li I in getting mi
help nml his piovlsloiiH wcic grad
ually giving out. At last tho time
eamo when he had oaten his layl
mouthful mid ho gave up all he He
lay down, his mind fully mailo up
that ho'huif to die.
"As ho was I)lng there bo heard
away In tho distance tbo old luuo of
the "Turko) In Iho Straw." He sat
up mid listened but could uot believe
bis oars. Sound travels a long wn)
up In those quiet regions and after a
while ho located It again. Ho strUK'
gled to his feel and made bis vva
towards wbero Ibo sound came from
Hu was weak nnd II took Mm a long
time lo make ll but when he did come
to the place llicro was n blamed IJs
qilluiaux sitting down with a Colum
bia machine in front of hint and play
ing Iho old luuo. This saved the
man's life and ho aflei wards found
out that the native had taken I lie
machine In tho way of lradefor some
"I mil across a number of quaint
things dining my tiavels but I have

Kancohc Company Successful
Against Boll-worm With
Careful experimentation carried on
by the Kancohc cotton company has
convinced ronio. of tbo stocklinlders of
the company that tlio' dreaded boll
worm etui be nlmovt wiped nut with
out Hie iis of n parasitic enemy. If
this prove to be trim for nil the cot
ton plantations of the Islands, the fu
ture of tbo cotton Industry hero Is ns
surcd The KnncOhn cotton company car
ried out n policy of very close cutting
back and 'pruning early this year. I.nst
jiiir tlio worms were found In tho cot
Ion bolls by hundreds. The present
crop, however, the result of tbo cutting
back early In tbo year. Is practically
tree of the worms. II. I.. Kerr, prcM
dent of the company, sold yesterday
that ho himself has picked twenty-nine
pounds of Ibo cotton, or about ZHAO
bolb, and that tho percentage of worms
found was virtually negligible.
It convinces me that careful pre
cautions In cutting nnd burning early
every year will rid the cotton of most
ot this jiest,"- says Mr. Kerr. "I feel
confident that If we can get a parnsllo
for the boll-worm, wo can actually
eradicate It entirely, and onco eradi
cate,!, precautions could be taken th.it
would prevent .It, over getting bnck.
'Wo hball cnntlnuo tlio cutting nml
burning every January. Wo burn the
maste material Immediately, not wait
log for It to dry, nnd In this way kill
the worms n( once."
Mr. Kerr says that the fund of .tonn
which the Hawaiian Cotton Growers'
Association Is attempting to ralso In
its campaign ngalust the twill-worm, to
lm used In securing a parasite, will
piobubly bo forthcoming shortly It wns
llrst reported that Hie fund would
likely not bo rnlsed, ami the publica
tion Immediately enlisted the efforts of
several people, so that Hie $3000 may
lie secured In IvyoW three weeks.
