Financial reports from New York show that the conditions on the main land are sound and are likely to strengthen rapidly in the first few months of the year. One report de clares that the United States is in a better condition financially than any other country in the world. Europe is still suffering from the strain of the Balkan war, and consequently money conditions there are unfavorable. The title to the property of the old royal palace at Kailua, Kona, with several acres in the town of Kailua was transferred yesterday from the Kapiolani estate to Mrs. S. C. Allen, the consideration named being $8600. Bulk of Present Crop Blended in San Francisco with Poor er Grades, He Says Declaring that there is a great fu ture for Hawaiian coffee, and that these islands should be as famous for their coffee as for their pineapples. Dr. E. V. Wilcox has gone on record j as bring a strong and enthusiastic j booster for that industry. "If there is anything better thai. a cup or Hawaiian conee. u s two cups," he says. "There is no good reason why Hawaii shouVl not be as famous for her coffee as for her pine apples. The bulk cf the crop is now sold in San Francisco to coffee blend ers, who mix it with poorer grades of coffee. Hawaiian coffee thus goes upon the world's breakfast table with every trace of its Hawaiian origin carefully obliterated. If one were to suggest to the pineapple growers of Hawaii that they eon.i;gn their pro ducts to mainland firms in bulk to be mixed with pineapples from Porto Rico and Florida, they would call in the pupule exiert at once. In the gala days of the Klondike stampede it is reportt'l that a grocer was arrested ior adulterating brown sugar with gold dust.

S. army drinks Kona cof fee, not cut of philanthropic feeling towards the coffee growers, but be cause it is the best coffee to be had. There arc thousands of mainlanders who would like the same opportunity, thank you. Why don't the coffee growers combine cooperatively, copy light their brands of Kona ai.'l llama kua roffee. and become a branch pro motion committee for Hawaii while greatly increasing the jingle in their pockets? 'The action of the Japanese growers of Kona in milling their own coffee is merely a move in that direction. For nearly two years they have been con sidering the scheme of marketing their ceffee cooperatively in New York or Chicago, and as pure Kona coffee. :lf such action were taken, every ounce of our coffee would, with in six months, be demanded by the tiade, iu pure, guaranteed brands. Kona and Hamakua coffee wouV. soon carry the fragrant essence of Hawaii into as many mainland homes as are now visited by Hawaiian pineapples. This la a move that the Japanese cof :ee growers will soon make. Just as certainly as a Japanese is knee-high to a grasshopper. Is the white man less amenable to the laws of modern business than the Japanese?" A for Infante and Children, Physicians Prescribe Castoria. C ASTORIA has met with pronounced favor on the part of physician, pharmaceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians with results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the result of three facts : 1st, The indisputable evidence that it is harmless j 2nd, That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the Serves, but assimilates the food ; 3rd It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for castor oIL It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any opium, morphine, or other narcotic and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing1 Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, etc This is a good deal for a medical journal to say. Our duty, however, is to expose danger and record the means of advancing health. The day for poisoning inno ent children through greed or ignorance oughl to end. To our knowledge, Cas toria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by regulating the system not by stupefying it and our readers are entitled to the Information. HoWt Journal of Health.

From the Los Angeles Tribune of ' January 3 is taken the following account of the lively doings of the well1. in question: The No. 3 well of the L&keview No. 2 Oil Company, which came in geveral weeks ago, broke loose at 1 a. m. Wed nesday and for three-quarters of an hour was shooting high over the top of the derrick. Although the exact amcunt of oil flowing could not be estimated it was placed at around 7000 barrels. The well is located on section 4. 11-23, in the Midway field and when it first came in was do ing about 2000 barrels per day. The hole was cemented on Novem ber 17, 1913, by W. F. Scott and al lowed to stand three weeks, that it might have plenty of time for the ce ment to set. Because of the water trouble in other wells in that terri tory every care was taken that the heavy salt water strata might be en tirely shut off. Hole is Dry. On drilling through the cement and baling down, the well was found to be perfectly dry. With less than a foot of drilling after the cement was drill ed through there was a heavy gas. which blew out much saiid and brought with it oil which tested 22.7 gravity. This was at a depth Of 2605 feet. Drilling was then continued down to a denth of 2613 feet and on being baled down at that depth came in with a quiet even flow, which was easily controlled. Although plenty of tankage was at hand for an average well, a contract had been let to the Uestern Pipe and Steel Company for two 1500-barrel tanks, which are to he erected at once. There is every apnearance that this well is in the excellent high-gravity sand which lias made the No. 2 well a splendid producer since its coming in last January. This well is now flowing at the rate of 1000 barrels a dav of 26.8 gravity oil as compared with 22.7 gravity oil when it first came in. The well is located on the south 40 acres of the lease acquired from the old Pentland Petroleum Company and it offsets the No. 2 well of the Mid way Fields, which is down to a denth of 2700 feet and is now making but slow progress in drilling because of casing trouble. It is in the immedi ate neighborhood of the new No. 1 well ; of the Interstr.teOil company, which j is new down about 112" feet. ' Standard Buys Oil. !

New York stock exchange crossed 1,000.000 shares. This unusual occurrence has not happened since 1897-98. The busiest day of the year 1913 was June 10, the day before the mark ing cf the extreme low prices, when bales amounted to 871.222 shares. The only other five-hour session that the appregrate crossed 800.000.shai.es was on January 14. when 803.682 changed hands. The third largest day's busi ness was on Jnne 4, whep the turn over was 793,643 shares. It will be interesting to recall that one of the stock exchange's recor! dull days occurred during 1913, when on November 25, sales totaled 57,274 shares, the smallest five-hours trad ing since Feb. 14, 1888, the absolute record dull day, when only 47,203 shares changed hands.
