In a great many respects Honolulu
is a live aud aggressive town, but Its
growth has been so rapid In the lust

cure or it will be swamped.
This Is evident In the city street
system. The demand for repair und

a capacity of over 12,000 cubic feet
per second, when the clty'B unbuilt

In order to appreciate tho magni

people of New Orleans to drain the

Is necessnry to understand tho char

A central station furnishes electric
power for the numiis. with u nrxsimt

WHEN a man buys something useful
which at the same time is steadily in
creasing in value he is twice fortunate. It
is only a little over ten years ago since the
pioneer settler on the land of Puupueo
made his home there. Then there were
none of the many conveniences required-by
the exacting subnnbanite. Now all .the ad
vantages that can possibly be asked for are
procurable: Mountain spring water, tele
