AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY.
A FACTOR IN IRRIGATION.
In recent years irrigation has been the
greatest factor in the progress of Hawaii and
the Kydler pump has taken its place in the
history of the development of irrigation, from
lower to higher levels, to a degree that is
The other night Mr. Allen was in a mood
to talk and he expatiated upon the history of
the introduction of the Rydler pump into
Hawaii, lie said:
" We ate sending machinery to all parts of
the world. We are sending our products to
South Africa, Australia, India, Russia, China,
Japan, New Zealand, South America, Cen
tral America and Mexico, all places that we
are familiar with, and they take up quite a
space in thr map of the world. One day we
received an order from Hawaii. The sie of
the pump ordered and its capacity was a sur
prize to us. We looked up the Hawaiian
Islands on the map and found that they were
only pricks in the Pacific Ocean.
To tell you the truth the R)dler Pump Co.
felt some hesitancy about shipping the pump
for fear it would Hood the islands und cause a
second deluge, and the company would be
held for damages. Hut after very serious
consideration it was decided to ship the pump
and take the chances
"Not long after that we recused an order
ol still larger capacity, and the company feel
ing assured that they had not flooded the
islands and were not held lor damages, began
to think that perhaps Hawaii was a held to be

chosen to go to Hawaii to investigate the
situation. On my first trip here I took a large
number of orders. Although a sin dl speck
on the map, I found it to be a very large
place when it came to the size of pumps re

"In the month ol January the company sent
me out again and I hae not been able to get
away yet. There lias been so much going
on in the way ol sugar development. We
h.ue done great business here and will do
more. I loe Hawaii with its wonderful cli
mate, its hospitable ways, quaint people and
delightful customs. I would hate to go it it

"All Is oer between us!" thought
)ietty CI11111 Dcuno, ns she Hat in her
She was engaged to Many Clifton, 11
member of the- Stock i:chunge, who
hail 11 fair income and a veiy handsome
"To think that Hany could have been
false to me!" she sobbed, and gazed on
11 photogiuph of a young and piettv
Bill of about twenty stiuinieis, whose
waving hnlr and daik eyes weie quite
enough to make any uitin udmiie her,
and any woman jealous.
This photogiaph she had discovered
in a pocket of an oveico.it which had
bean left behind on one of Mr. Hauy's
many visits; and had Cliuu been the
one exception to the rule which states
that all women 111 e cuilous, It would
have icmained undiscovered: but the
Fates decided ollieiul.se, and It was
this little piece of pastebouid that was
causing all the tumble.
Suddenly Claia stopped her weeping,
tluew down the photogiaph on the out
put, went to a dutwer, und pulled out
a latge packet of letteis.
"I will send everything back," she
said, making the letteis Into a pnicel,
and tying them up with a piece of col
01 ed llbbon.
She took off a diamond ling fiom her
finger, and could haidly pi event her
self fiom kissing It as she placed it on
a table with other mementos of Harry's
' couitlng days.
It w as the 01 k of no time to tie them
1 all up and Insert a little note to the
effect that she had "discovered eveiy
thlng," und was returning his piesents,
which would do for "that honld wo
man." She add! eased the packet and
looked about the loom, which seemed
to huve no longer any fasclnntlon foi
her, to see If she had foi gotten any
thing. The bunch of dioaplng loses
she could not send back; moieover,
they seemed to share her grief.
Hie then addicssed the packet to
Hany Clifton, Esq., and sat down to
hue a good ciy. She thought of whut
the other gills would say, and how' hei
fnthei, who had opposed the match ull
along, would mutter, "I told you so."
Then she thought of the lloweis,
kisses, dlnneis, und theatie tickets
whkh she could not leturn.
In the midst of these memoiles her
eyes fell on the photogiaph, which still
lay on the cm pet.
"He can have that, too!" she cxcluim
ed, picking It up and looking with un
giy glances at the full- cieatuio it por
tiayed. Mechanically she turned It
oer, and on the back leud: "This
photogiaph Is piesented with the pack
ets of Cigaiettes."
"Dent, daillng Hany! .she tiled. "I
knew hi could not be false!"

Noith China Dally News.
It seems, uccoidlng to the Peklnj
conespondent of the London Times
as If the Empiess Dowager of China
hud condescended to be leconclled to
the Empeior. This, one may piesume,
is the coiiect phraseology for the case,
since the woild knows that the Emperor
Is haidly in n position Emperor though
ho Is to condescend to do or to be any
thing. The lappiochement, If it be In
deed a fact. Is scnicely likely to have
any vastly impmtnnt beailng on the
complicated pioblem of Chinese politics
or no politics. Empciois may be em
ptrots, but so also It appeals may Em
pi es Downgeis; und so long ns Her
Imperial Mnjesty of China chooses to
pose In that masculine lole, It Is not to
be supposed that the de facto Empe.'ii
has much of a chance. Hence lecon
clllntlon Is a long woul, and In this
case veiy little moie.
NOT IN THIS CASE, THOUGH
The court and jury, as well as the
general public, enjoy the scene when a
lawyer, In an uttempt to badger or
blow beat a witness, comes off second
best In the encounter.
A conespondent lecalls an amusing
Incident of this sort which happened a
few yeats ago In a couit-ioom. Thc
plalntlff, who was a lady, was called
upon to testify. She got on veiy well,
and made 11 favorable Impiesslon on the
Jury, under the guidance of her coun
sel, until the opposing counsel subject
ed her to a sh.up cross-examination.
This so contused her thnt she became
faint, and tell to the door In a swoon.
In eioss-exnnilnatlon the next wit
ness the counsel nsked, "Did you see
the plaintiff faint a shott time ago?"
"People turn pale when they faint,
"No, not always."
"Did you ever hear of a case of faint
ing where the puity did not tuin pale?"
"Did you evei see suth a case?"
"About a year ago."
"Wbtre was It?"
"In this city."
"Who was It?"
" 'Twas a negio, sir."
Peal after peal s-hook the couit-i 00111,
In whlfh the venerable Judge joined.
The defendant's counsel lost his case,
not to say his temper.
CONTENT WITH THE SENTENCE -"lour
w 01 ship," bald the wily solltltm,
who was delendlng the stnlwait piison
er in the dmk, "jou cannot possibly
convict my client of housebieaklng. I
submit, sir, with all defeience, tlu.t
neither moially 1101 legally tun you
convict him. I will tell you why.
"Mr. Slkes here, us the evidence
cleaily pioves, did not bieuk Into any
house at all. He found the pailoi win
dow open, as the witnesses admit, and
nil he did was to put In his light aim
und remove some unimportant ai tides.
Now, sir. Mr. Slkes" aim Is not he him
self, and I fall to see how you can pui.
Ish tho whole individual for an offense
committed by only one of his limbs."
"Very well, sli," said the cautious
fcolomon of the bench, "I have heaid of
a similar defence befoie today, so i
find the pilsonei's aim guilty, and sen
tence It to six months' Inipilsonmern.
I he gentleman himself enn uccompany
It or not, as he chooses. Mr. Clerk, lee
01 d the sentence."
Then Mr. Slkes smiled a foui teen
inch smile, and the plan of the defence
became apparent, ns he quietly pioceed
ed to unscrew his guilty coik aim and
leave it in the custody of the com t.
A giundfather, well known in the
English House of Commons, was chat
ting amicably with his little ginnd
duughter, who was snugly ensconced on
his knee. "What makes your hair so
white, giundpa?" the little miss queii-e-d.
"I am veiy old, my dear; I was
In the nik," leplled his loidshlp, with
a pulnlul disieguid of the truth. "Ch
are you Noah?" "No." "Aie you Shorn',
then? "No, I im not Shem." "Aiv
vou Ham?" "No." "Then," said '.he
little one. who was fast Hearing tec
limit of her biblical knowledge, "you
must be Japhet." A negative leply
was given to this query also, foi the
old gentleman Inwaidly wondered what
the outcome would be, "Hut, giand
pa, If you mo not Noah, or Shem, or
Ham, 01 Japhet. you must be a beast. '
