Sickness has greatly handicapped foot
balkwork at Oahu College the past week.
The boys have been suffering considerably
from fevers and pains lately, which
has somewhat hindered practice.
Myers, who has been showing wonderful
ability as a bucking halfback, split
hi collar bone in the early part of the
week, putting him out of the game for
two or three weeks at the least.
Plunkett, another new man, was laid
up in bed sick for two or three days, but
managed to get out on the field again towards
the last of the week.
Johnson, one of the Second team men,
has !een on the shelf also. Holt has been
taking his place.
Cruzan, who was playing fullback on
the Second team, has also been unable to
turn out, which circumstance has
changed matters a trifle. G. Judd has
been playing fullback.
Gartner had run out Walker at end
for the Second team, and bids quite fair
to bold his position for quite a time.
Myer's accident has made the race
for First team honors much closer. Several
of the Second team backs are bidding
for the position and the rivalry between
them is keen.

Game on Oahu.
Nine out of every ten tourists who
pas-through these islands are
with the idea that this group is entirely
lacking in game of any kind. Let me relate
'an incident of my own experience.
A short time ago a friend and myself
started on a hunting trip in the Waianae
mountains. Taking the train from Honolulu
we went by rail to that section of
the country where the narrow valleys
of the Waianae range run almost down
to the nnlroad. Getting off the train at
one of these valleys, we started inland.
It was quite dark, and after tramping
about a mile through the lantana we
came upon n native hut, where we put
up for Uie night
The kanaka, with characteristic Hawaiian
hospitality, placed a tempting
dih of poi before us and we ate
AVe were up with the sun the nert
morning; and after a hearty breakfast
on fih and poi started up the valley,
through an endless stretch of lantana.
The valley we were in was long and
narrow ending in ibrapt cliffs which
could be scaled with some little trouble.
As we ncared the end of the valley we
could hear the goats bleating from the
surrounding cliffs. In the little ravines
and gulches on all sides of us could be
heard the peculiar call of the pheasant,
with now and then the far-off cry of the
quail. On all sides of us we could hear
the gobble-gobble oE the wild turkey,
and what was still more strange, the
cackle of the chickens which throng all
the Waianae valleys.
We were sitting down resting, preliminary
to climbing the cliffs before ns.
when suddenly five wild pigs came trotting
around the edge of a little knoll
not more than fifty yards away. But
two of the pigs escaped, and those only
got away because wo ran out of cartridges
in our magazines. One of the
pigs was a nice, fat I'ttle sow, which we
dressed and hung up in a neighboring

The Deadly Air Bubbles.
From London Antrcr.
Very often a solaier gets so severe a
wound from a tiny bullet of the modern
rifle that he concludes the enemy has no
respect for the Geneva convention, and
is Ufing the terrible explosive bullets
which no civilized nation ues now. Surgeons
who know their business are well
aware of the explanation of the mistake.
The explosive effects are due to the air
which the bullet drives before it into the
Any one can put the matter to a simple
test. By dropping a round bullet into
a glass of water from a height of one or
two yards it will be seen that the moment
the bullet touches the bottom a very large
bubble of air -will become detached and
rise, to the surface. In some cases this
bubble has a volume of air twenty times
as large as the bullet.
But when a rifle bullet is traveling at
an immense speed it drives before it a
compressed bubble much larger still. A
military surgeon fired a pistol into a
rebsel of water so arranged that he was
able to catch and measure the air bubble,
and he found it to be 100 times the
size of the balL
The destructive effects of this mass of
air when it gets into a man's body may
be imagained. It regularly explodes,
tearing the muscles in a terrible manner.
In fact very often the soldier who is
said to have died from a bullet wound is
really killed by the explosive volume of
air. which is appropriately called "projectile
OFFERS. FIVE TO ONE ON
Missourian Heady to Bet One Hun
dred Thousand Dollars But
Finds No Takers
.MJH XUltlv. UCt. Hi. Unslner
Xorest, who is stationed at the cigar counter
in the Hoffman House cafe, was much
surprised tonight when a plainly dressed
uiau about'iiO years old walked up and
placed $100,000 on the cigarcase.
"You sec that?" he said. "There are
one hundred thousand-dollar bills. The
money is mine and I came here from Mis
souri to bet it on Bill McKinley. I want
j on to find me a few of those chaps who
think Bryan has a ghost of a show. If
you find them with the money to bet I'll
make it all right with you for your trouble.
I've been trying to get some one
who actually has money to bet on Bryaa,
but I've traveled clean through the country
from Missouri to New York and I
can't find 'em.
"Well,"' continued the man from Missouri,
"I want to find some one with
Bryan money to cover it I told you I
belonged to Missouri. I own a zinc mine
there and my men get good wages. Most
of them arc democrats. They'll all vote
for McKinley. and so will thousands of
other democrats in my state. W I
want that money covered. I'll bet $30,000
even that McKinley will carry Missouri
by ir,000. I'll bet another $30,000 that
McKinley will carry Wyoming. I'll bet
that hull bunch, $100,000, against $20,-
000 that Bill McKinley will be reelected."
The man from Missouri talked so
loudly that a crowd gathered about him.
He asked if there .were any men with
Bryan money in the crowd. No one answered.
The man from Missouri picked up his
roll, and putting it in his pocket said:
"Don't forget me; 111 be around again
tomorrow night, and yon'U do me a favor
if you find me a Bryan man with backbone
