terday morning, by tuine people, as

This was partly due to the arrival
from the Kahukd 1'lantatTon pond of

Do I like Hawiif Well, I wouldn't
be here If I didn't! said Bea Bruns.
Mr. Bruns also thinks it hi the finest
plaoe in the world. In California nnd
the Middle West, 'and even aa far East
as Philadelphia, where. I have been in
the past six year with my big B. B. C.
open air concert companies, I always
have a "Hawaiian Night" in every
eity I visit. My Company play and
sing Hawaiian song and instrumental
selections, and as, I have a rather inter
esting collection of -colored slides of
Hawaiian scenes and historical event
it always- prove an evening of the ut
most Interest to the several thousand
people who atteml. The lecture and
concert U free, generally on the Cha
tauqua grounds, and I dare say I have
been instrumental in sending a great
many people to these Islands in the last
twenty years, and, nt no cost to the Pro
motion Cginmitee, either.
Mrs. Bruns and myself are here for
the Winter, and Incidentally to call at
tention to the marvelous B. B. 0. Medi
cine. We have, been Vfry successful in
introducing it here, but that is nothing
new, as the B. B, C, Medicine makes a
sensntion wherever wjb go. It haa no
alcohol of poisonous drugs in it, and;
old and youug can use it with impunity'
ami get the- greatest results. 1
B. B. C. is a reconstructive tonic, es-
I ially applicable to this olimate, as it
stirs the liver to action, drives away
those sick headaches, diazy spells and
tin t dopey, tired languid feeling so
prevalent here( puts pep and vitality
into the system and has you bubbling
with the health , of youth, no matter
how old you arc B. B. C. ia a great
blood cleanser and is especially recom
mended fon rheumatism, and I have
many testimonial for cures of that dor
rivod from the Use of B. B. C.
Biliousness end. nervous spells, sleep
lessness and kidaey Vind bladder disor
ders can have no better remedy. " All
these thijuga aome primarily from a bad
stomach and constipation, and a com
mon sense herbal medicine like B. B. C.
niitkvPs (bort Work. of tlremWhs it tune
up the atomooh, 0(U digestion, and
with your stomach In good shape nbd
he body strong, the other kindred ail
ment disappear like mist before the
S 11 11. i.i.
I have scores of testimonials from
tint best people in Honolulu which I
