Our Mode To tho resident of Hawaii tioi the inero thought of
Of Living being housed up and cum polled to live our daily life
within four walls is obnoxious. It is the out door life wo load when
free from the day's cares which lend a charm to life in Hawaii.
Those who have resided in the islands and gone toother climes find
there a difference, something which is lacking to nrike life complete
snd a constant yearning for the sunny shores of the islands cannot
be driven awav. How different is the life of the average city man
who, after being cooped up all day in a monster ollice, goes to his
home, possibly a mansion on a fashionable thoroughfare or to an
apartment hotel where everything is artificial, In new York the
mode ol living seems to change every decade. At the present
time there are sixty first class hotels, with fifteen more building.
If these seventy-five hotels were piled on top of one another they
would make a structure seven hundred and fifty stories high, or
if they should be put uader one roof it would be twenty-seven
stories high and occupy a ground space of seventeen acres. This
great building would, at the individuil cost of the buildings, cost
$75,000,000, have 22,500 bedrooms and accommodate 50,000 guests
daily. Truly one-half cf the world does not know how the other
The works have just recent installed
the new machinery which is strictly
modern in all parts and built to perform
only high class work.
The company make a specialty a sy
phon soda which is a very convenient
form of soda for household use as well as
for the bar. All flavors all fruit syrups
popular with the soda water lovers are
made up in such quantity to guarantee
users fresh as wtll as pure goods.
It is the intention of the company so
soon as the ice machinery is installed
and from which they propose to make
crystal ice from distilled vfater, to carry in
their refrigerators such delicacies as im
ported cheeses, sausages, California fruits,
vegetables and game in season.
1005 Harvest Home.
Admission Day Races.
The Annual What Yuletide is to the Englishman; the
Harvest Home winter palace to the Canadian; the Veiled
prophets and Madi Gras to the Southerner, so is the annual IJar
vest Home to the people of Maui. After a hard season's work of
making marketable the sugar cane, and the constant strain in all
department of keeping everything in good working order is over,
comes the time for relaxation and a day's of rather evening's en
joyment in which Maui as a unit takes part. It has been Mi cus
tom of the present management of the Hawaiian Commercu' and

of departments unite in a ireneral srood time. This is Lhe Har
vest Home at Puunene to which the residents of Maui eager') look
forward. The example is one which might well be taken i p by
other plantations ana large business concerns, as then' is no
question but what this Harvest Home while generally part cipated
in, is the means of cementing the relations of eipployer and em
ployee and goes a long way towards maintaining the unr limity of
interest in the years work.
The year's end of the grinding season
for Puunene Mill is always eagerly
looked forward to by the residents of
Maui, not because it is the end of the
grinding season so much as because the
aftermath of the seasons hard work is the
Annual Harvest Home, which is one of
the social events of the season.
Tonight the mud press room of the
mill will be shorn of its every day utility
and converted into an immense dancing
Flags, banners, and streamers will hide
the presses and other mammoth ma
chinery and with the ferns, palms and a
myriad of electric lights will be trans
formed into a fairy land.
With the nsual generosity of the
management, all Maui has received
an invitation to attend. Five hundred
invitations have been printed and sent
out, and it is safe to say that each and
every recipient of an invitation to the
Harvest Home, will accept of the hopita-
lity of the Hawaiian Commercial and
Sugar Co. this evening.
As Admission Day which has become
legalized as a territorial holiday falls on
Saturday this year, the Maui Racing As
sociation have decided to give another of
their successful race meets.
Eleven races in all will be given and
one can rest assured of good interesting
sport as the horses are all in good condi
tion for the events. A special race and
one which is a novelty on this island will
be a one mile hack race, trotting ami
pacing, to be driven by owners or by
licensed drivers. There will be three or
possibly four stables represented and an
exciting race may be expected. Where
ever a race of this kind has leen given
much good natured rivalry has existed
and drawn good crowds.
Another feature race will be a mile and
a half cowboy race. As the participants
will receive their instructions when the
race is called, no one contestant will
have an advantage over the others. Tak
en all in all a good program h9 been ar
ranged and as large a crowd as was in
attendance at the Fourth is expected.
Bested The Alplners.
Luscious Fruits From Haiku.
Our Side On several occasions tho News has mentioned
Industries editorially and in the news columns various indus
tries which have sprung up from time to time, and which not only
enhances the commercial value of our island but gives employment
to the poor class. In the cise of tlie Haiku Fruit and Packing Co
it not only employs many hands in the factory, making cans and
boxes, and in the preserving of its product, but affords a lucrative
livelihood to our residents. The samples of pines exhibited this
week are good, not exceptional specimens of the fruit grown at
Haiku and used as the canned article. It is no wouder, nor nothing
extraordinary, that this fruit should have an unlimited demand on
the Pacific coast. It has been said that the sugar loafor smooth
Cayenne grown on the Hawaiian Islands are far superior in flavor
to the same species grown in Florida or Ceylon, and surely those
grown at Haiku bear out the allegation, What has been made
possible in pines is equally possible in rubber, sisal etc.
Exhibited in the window of Hoffmann
and Weight's store this week were four
luscious smooth cayenne pines grown on
the lands of the Haiku Fruit and Packing
Co. of Haiku Maui.
The total weight of the four pines was
found to be twenty eight and three
uafter pounds, and the individual weights
6 7-8tus, and 7 3-81I1S pounds.
The pines are of the variety grown
bv the Haiku Fruit and Packing Co
for canning purposes and 10000 of them
are planted to the acre.
Mr. W. A. Baldwin has been most
successful in growing these pines, cann
ing them and of disposing of the seasons
output; in fuct if Mr. Baldwin so desirtd
it would not be necessary for him to dis
pose of single can or case on the islands,
as the California Association took all of
last season output excepting what was
sold to local stores, and have agreed to
take all of this seasons canned crop
Mr. Baldwin will ship them. '
With the method adopted by the Haiku
cannery tlie canned article is Just as
luscious and holds the natural flavor of
the fresh fruit.

The Philadelphia Inquirer in speaking of the new eighteen
hour passenger service recently inaugurated by the Pennsylvania
Company between Chicago and New York says ;
''Annihilation of space and time has become the
crux of modern business. There is no time to spend
looking at scenery. By this train the the New York
or Philadelphia man loses no time from his desk and
spends on the train the hours which he would otherwise
consume at a cafe or in a hotel. There are multi-mil-lioners
to whom minutes are tr olden, and the smaller
business man must compete with them. He can now
make the trip without loss of time or abandoning any
business considerations, and if he wants he can trans
act business on the train.

for the approbation of her 6ister counties.
