WOMAN LOSES SIGHT,
NAIL FROM A BOX
PIERCES HER EYE
KOSSLAND, Dec. 11. Mrs. James
Kosi met with a dreadful accident on
Wednesday morning, which resulted
in the loss of the sight of her right
eye. She was engaged in making the
fire in order to cook the breakfast
at 6 o'clock, and so as to kindle the
flames she was breaking apart a
small box. While tearing it asunder
with her hands, a nail about two
inches long flew out of the box, and,
turning in its course, struck the mid
dle of the right eye, piercing it for
nearly an inch.
The pain was intense, but Mrs. Ross
extracted the nail and Dr Coffin was
Mrs. Ross was removed to the Sis
ters' hospital, where she is under ob
servation. The sight is destroyed, but
it is believed that the inflammation
can be kept down so that it will not

THIS POOR HUSBAND
' WAS PASSED AROUND
Those who have nothing better to
do may spend a few moments trying
to guess the names of the California
women to whom John Philip Sousa re-1
fers in the following which I extract
from a New York weekly:
At the first luncheon in Honolulu
I sat beside a very pretty matron of
perhaps thirty, a California woman,
visiting on the islands. Her married
name was a most unusual one, and Ii
had never heard it before. The bap
tismal cognomen was Maud, That
evening I dined at another house, and
sitting opposite was a handsome
blonde of the stately variety, and she
also bore, the same surname as the
lady I had met at luncheon. She
was christened Lillian. After the con
cert I went: to still another house for
supper. At my right sat a vivacious
brunette, very fascinating and an un
usually good talker. Strange to re
late, she also had the same name. I
said: "I have been nearly everywhere,
but I cannot recall ever "having heard
your name before fcame to Honolulu,
and only within the last twelve hours
you are the third bit of femininity
with that appellation I have met; of
courEe, you must be related to the
others?" "Yes, and no; and no and
yes." replied the vivacious one:
"there is a relationship, but it would

NEW YORK, Dec. 23. The speech
made by James J. Hill of the dreat
Northern before his business associ
ates is regarded by many local ship
pers as the first gun of the re-opening
of the fight of the railroads to ob
tain permission from the interstate
commerce commission to advance
Local shippers decline to comment
on this outlook, preterring to wait
further and more tangible action by
the carriers. It is believed that the
principal railroads wijl present their
financial problems toi President-elect
Wilson shortly aad-as for ais aid in
their efforts to obtain I'm ore adequate
returns on their investment"
From authoritative sources it also
is learned that many railroad offi
cials are against any movement for
increased freight rates, 'while others,
mainly those on the more important
roads, are determined that the issue
shall be raised immediately and pre
sented to the Democratic leaders as
a political proposition ..with distinct
commercial auvantagea to the busi
ness men of the entire country.
Preparations are being made for a
private conference between the rail
road men and several important ship
pers on the matter of rates and fol
lowing this conference it is expected
the carriers will . carry their resolu
tions and evidences to trie interstate
commerce commission, where a sec
ond private conference will be held.
Hill's earnest plea for a change of
public heart against the railroads un
doubtedly marks the opening of an
educational campaign to bring the
shippers and consumers to the point
where they shall realize that the
"need of improvements, aditions. in-1
