A large crowd was intently gazing at
a long white tape-like article in a bot
tle thnt bad ju been banded to the
B. B. C. man, at King 8tret, opposite
the Fih Mbrket, by one of bis patrons,
n ho seemed greatly elated and was giv
ing a somewhat excitable account of
Hie happening. During the past few
weoks, said the B. B. C. man, many
people who are using the B. B. C. medi
cine have brought me internal para
sites, commonly culled tapeworms, that
Itave recently passed from the system.
Many of these people have bean alarm
ed and came to ask for an explanation.
Home of these people did not even
know the nature of the parasite they
brought to me, and ia consequence were
extremely nervous aad welted over the
"I take this opportunity of explain
ing what these creatures are and what
I have learned about tbem in the past.
"Tapeworms, as they are called, are
mu di more common than would be sup
poced. I venture to say thnt 10 percent
of the so-called chronic stomach trouble
and whMt- is knowa as a 'run-down con
dition,' is caused by those ereatures. In
every city I visit hundred of them are
brought to me during my stay by peo
ple who have taken B. B. C. medicine,
and doubtless there are innumerable
cases of which I hear nothing. An in
dividual may suffer for years with one
of these great parasites and not be
nware of it. Contrary to general be
lief, the appetite In not greatly in
creased it only becomes irregular.
Homctiinos an extreme sense of hunger
is experiencexl; at others the mere
sipht of food will' nauseate.
"There is generally a feeling of
fa in tn ess, however, and a gnawing sen
snf'ion in the pit of the stomach.
"People afflicted with one of these
parasites are generally nervous and
easily depressed. The chief sensation
is one of languor the least exertion
will tire, and there is, os a rule, a dull
pain in the lowe part of the buck. The
individual imagines thnt he, or she, is
suffering from -many differtuit diseaitcs.
The parasite ia never in itself fatal,
hut it consomes a great part of the sub
stance from all food eaten, and in con
sequence fhere In nof eriouifh nournsh
ment left to sustain the body, the sys
tem loses vitality aad every oran be
comes more or less affected.
"Lack of energy and ambition not
only affect the-bodr, but the mind aleo
hecoim-s dull mid sluggish, the memory
Is not ho good and the eyesight be
comes somewhat poorer.
" As t Have already stuted, I believe
these parasites are -very prevalent. My
B. B. C. medicine, in demising fhe
stomach of impurities, seems to fc fatal
fo these great worms and drives them
from the system with astonishing rap
idity. T wish to assure anyone who has
had the experience jolt related, with
uiv H H. C. medicine, that there is no

Deputy Sheriff In Tussle With
Desperado Cut On Hand
HII.O, February 12 Deputy Sheriff
Willi An !in sard of Honokaa bad nar
row escape from being murdered on
Katnr lav lat, when a Porto Rican,
Fundonol l.unmin, attempted to knife
him severil limes with a dagger made
out of a i I.-, says the Hilo Tribune of
February I.'. The wenpon was nine
inches Ion., and as sharp as a razor.
The Porto Kiesn cnt Rickard with the
dagger three times through the shirt,
hut did not inflict a serious wound.
Ric!nrd was talking to a Honokaa
resident on the main street when the
Porto Klcnii approached him and used
seme vile language. The sheriff told
the Porto wienn to go. home and not to
start any trouble. This he refused te
do nnd intimated that the o.Hcer should
go home himself, or go to a plaee that
is not quite so cold as Hamakua at
: -nd Held Dagger
Rickard thereupon advanced toward
Gnsmon nnd the Inttvr raised his Arm
as if to strike him with something he
hsd in his hand. The officer grasped
the man's hnnd and discovered that it
clasped a dagger.
The Porto Rican struggled to drive
the dagger into the deputy's body, but
was thrown to the ground, where he lay
for a moment. He thea got fo his- feet
again and ran down the road until he
was some distance from Rickard. The
officer went after the matt, after pick
ing up a thick stick lying on tbe side
wiilk. Rickard saw that the man waa
threatening everybody who came along
the road, so he crept up behind' hlM and
managed to hit him on the hand with
It was after the Porto' Rican had
been taken to the jail that Rickard
found that the dagger had cot him on
the hand and had also been driven
through his coat and shirt in three
places. The only wound inflicted en
the sheriff, however, wa a alight cnt
along the ribs on the right side.
J net Missed the Heart
One hole made by the dagger waa es
actly over Rickard 's heart, and if
driver, home would' have meant death:
Another Porto Rican who came to
the assistance of BickArd during tbe
fight was cut on the bach of the band.
Ouenion in said to be a desperate char
octer, who has been in trouble for knif
ing people before. He ia also charged
with drawing his dagger on Antone

Volunteer Road ' Superintendent
Exert Efforts and Imprtrve
ment t Evident
Greatly improved conditions in the
county districts where the "dollar-a-year"
road superintendents have been
operating have justlfled the existence
uf these- lowest pai(l.uiity emploves
and have refuted the old maxim that
cheap labor produce wasteful1 method
according to City Engineer A. S. Can
tia. The three men who volunteered- tO
serve the county in the capacity of road
superintendents have been bard' at work
on their districts and as a general' thing
have succeeiled In malting one dollar do
service for two1 according tar the snme
that have been apent on some district
in the past. Superintendent James Oibb
of the Kwa District, manager of the
Houolulu 1'lantstion; Manager Adams
of the Kahuku Plantation and William
Henry have been at work since the first
of the year iu their respective disfrlcfs
and have already produced re milt thai
are greatly grattfylag te the city en
gineer. "I am sure that in sit months front
now, at the rate the volunteer super
intendents are going, we shall see a
wonderful difference in some of our
worat districts," said Mr. Cantin yes
terday. "Tbey have accomplished wou
dera in Very ehort time and I am sure
that everybody in the districts pre
sided over by them feels deeply in
debted to their efforts."
The funds at the command of the
" dollar-a year" men are very meager
but the fact that the srrperi oteiKlnrs
are "on the grouud" and able in some
cases fo utilise plantation equipment
make the mosey gd a long way. Gene
ral maintenance is all that ia attempt
ed by them, but in some instances this
work ha approached the thoroughness
of complete remaking of certain spot,
