Cornwcll Buy Young Hee Ranch.
Two years since, Col. W. II. Corn
well attempted tj buy the Young
Ilee ranche, and for that purpose
visited China. However, the ships
that carried Col. Cornwell and Young
llee, the owner, passed in the night,
so that about, the time the Colonel
reached China, Young Hee landed in
Honolulu, and before his sea-legs
were olT ho had sold his large Kula
Ranch to the Gear, Lansing Co. for
A deal has just been completed, by
which Colonel Cornwcll becomes an
owner of the ranche, less about (100
acres of corn and potato land reserv

of about $in,00(l. The area sold is
approximately 5,400 acres, and it

Col. Cornwell under a lease to run

A New Wailuku Enterprise.
Mr. L. K. Ekberg, an energetic
and enterprising young man of Hon

numerous business chances lying dor
mant ou Mam.
He is the agent of the celebrated
Singer sewing machine, , and has
rented one" of the stores in the Rod
rigues' Block on South Market street,
adjoining the "Corner Store." A

lantern, and since that time, nothing
has been seen or heard from him,
although the plantation authorities

A Narrow LUscnpe.
' On last Tuesday afternoon, Mr.
Alfred IJayseldon left Wailuku for
Lahaina riding a youn.r, half broken
mule. On 1 lie crest of the hill just
beyond Manowamui Gulch, ho en
countered a cow in the road, and as
it was growing quitf dark ttie mule
became frightened and turned and
ran back down the grade. On reach
ing the foot of the gulch, Mr. II ay
selden perceived that the animal was
about to jump over the reck wall
down the pali, and prepared to dis
mount. Just as the mule rose in tl.o
air for the leap, Mr. Hayseldcn
threw himself off in the road, slightly
bruising one knee, but without dam
age otherwise. The mule success
fully cleared the wall and went
bounding and rolling down the pali,
some fifty feet, to the bottom. Mr.
Ilayselden was compelled to walk to
Olowalu, reaching thero about 10
o'clock, where he summoned a hack
by telephone. It is with a feelingof
undefined regret tha' one learns that
the mule was found the next day, un
injured and without a scratch Jocom

the saddle and bridle were uninjured
