Some people who claim to know all about it are of the opinion that
the Crater's present treat state of activity may not last over two month's,
and then it may drop out of sight altogether." If this story should turn
out to be correct, there would be hundreds of people in this city who
would regret that they allowed an opportunity to visit it go by, Wb5
not go now? The Steamer Kinau will leave on Friday, August 3d, with
an Excir3ion Party on board another chance of the same kind ruay
not uresent itself for a Ions time, and vou are sure to enjoy the trip. A
ticket will cst vou $50. which includes hotels and transportation. You
will never furget your first sight of the Great Burning Lake, and with
out seeing it you will remain in the dark as to its appearance, as no pen
can do it justice. The trip is a most enjoyable onej vou spend a day or
so in the Beautiful town of Hilo; you traverse the Volcano Eoad with
its wealth of tropical foliage, and when you reach the Volcano House
you will say that the trip, so far, is of the memorable order. But this
is nothing compared to the awful splendor of the Crater; there is noth
ing like it in this earth. Bead the Advertiser of Monday, July 23rd tt
and get an idea of what awaits you high up in the mountains of,
Hawaii. . " jy2G
