T., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, )9U NUMBER 40 r A Plea For Help Commendable Effort to Fight the Great White Plague. " A Httto more than a year ago, the Mnui County Board of Supervisors, realizing that Pulmonary Tubercu losis was increasing on tho Island and that disease and death was threatening every household, by its extremely infectious nature, appro priated funds Jor tho purposo of erecting at least temporary buildings for tho care of these unfortunates. Accordingly a committee was ap pointed for tho purposo of selecting a site and arranging other matters pertaining to tho institution. A 4sito was- selected at Kcpkca, Kula, at an elevation of some three to four thousand feet and at a point where there is but littlo dust. This area is acknowledged by all to bo an ideal climate for tho caro and treatment of Pulmonary Tuber culosis. The Territorial Board of Health also appreciated our efforts and appropriated funds to help us, and recently the Board of Super visors appropriated funds for the purposo of ercctiiig a ward or hos pital building, and that is now in course of construction. This build ing will cost almost four and a half thousand dollars, but there is great need of other improvements imme diately. Wo can scarcely go through the Winter season without another building or cottage on the grounds, besides there will bo much fencing to do and other improvements quite necessary to the existence of the institution. Tho Farm, which has been given us by the Territory, should be stocked that it may become partially self-sustaining. Several of the ranch es, as well as individuals, have agreed to contribute a number of good milk cows for tho purposo, and now tho Managing Committee, propose to raise by subscription, an amount as nearly as possible, equal to the amount appropriated by the Board of Supervisors. This money to be used for the erection of anoth er cottage or building, for fencing and other much needed improve ments. Subscription papers will be found in tho various Banks of Maui and at tho office of the Maui News, for this purposo. Let every citizen of Maui put his shoulder to tho wheel and help to push this proposition along as rapidly as possible. Since tho institution was estab lished, a littlo more than a year ugo, it has been crowded to capa city and much good has been dono; not only to the sick ones, but to their families and communiics, by removing from their midst tho most fruitful sourco of infection. One patient who was formerly very sick with Tuberculosis, has apparently completely recovered, and a mun ber of others aro improving. Accident at Maliko. A nativo boy, named Hokano, who was working in tho road gang at Maliko, and whoso duty it was to feed tho mules camo very near being killed ono morning this week. He and another boy had fed tho .mules, and were taking them to tho work on tho road. Tho boy at tempted to get on tho ihulo's back, when tho animal becamo frightened and ran away. Tho boy fell off and was dragged about ono quarter of a mile. Ho is now at the Paia hospital in a much battered condi tion. College Education Calculated te be a Safeguard Against Divorce. From two Eastern colleges, Vassar and Swarthmorc, como announce ments by the proud principals that none of their graduates over has figured in a divorce suit. And from thoTJniversity of Washington at Seattle is heard the Pacific Coast's answering cry that, tho divorce court matter aside, tho West has physically tho most perfect college girl in the world, and henco the best wife material. It" certainly is pleasant to know that our girls' colleges aro turning out graduates calculated to make so many homes happy. But that this is the case is a fact not particularly difficult to explain. In the first placo, the girl graduate is generally out of her teens before she leaves school and so It is less likely to marry carelessly than some of her younger sisters. It is the hastily contracted marriages of persons not old enough to make a proper discri mination that most frequently lead to the divorce courts. Still another reason for tho girl graduate's comparative immunity from divorce is tlio fact thatlier college education has given her a sort of self-sufficiency, by which she is able to interest herself at home in case she should find other inter ests there lacking. Unless there is a community of interest between a man and wife married life has a tendency to be come monotonous. In this fact lies an explanation of much df the dis satisfaction which some men feel with, their wives when tho latter seem too much engrossed with tho trivialities of life, with its small gossip and its unimportant details liut tno woman wno nas gono through college has had opportuni ties to broaden her range of vision and can carry tho mental joust with her husband beyond tho small tnlk of the tea tables. Tho college woman, ioo, can draw on interests outsid3 of tho homo to keep her from ennui and it is ennui in some form or other that is a fruitful source of divorces. There are many activities in which she can find refuge, such as church work, the welfare of children, aiding tho spread of education, and other things, an interest in which follows easily from a collego course. But graduates of girls' colleges havo not necessarily any monopoly of the opportunities for domestic Happiness. Any intelligent young woman can easily make herself an agreeable and loved companion for a good husband and can find in her own resources tho secret of banish ing monotony from tho household. If it has been her lot not to have had the educational advantages which her husband hap had, she can, by application and tho right sort of reading, easily bridge tho gap sufficiently to satisfy and to make herself an interesting life partner. Church of the Good Shepherd Fair. Ono of the most successful fairs ever held in Wailuku was that of tho Ladies Aid of the Church of the Good Shepherd, last Saturday even ing.

Hugh Mcintosh writes from Aus tralia that he has matched Jack Lester, "newly created champion of tho British empire," against Sam McVey. Lester, who is Tommy Burns' find, was "created" cham pion of Australia at least by beating Bill Lang, From the case with which McVey knocked out poor old Bill, I judge that the 'newly creat ed champion of the British cmpiro'' is up against it. He's little more than a novice. But won't MoVoy como back from Australia with a gorgeous string of titles? Sam Mc Vey, champion do la Republique Francais, newly created champion of the British empire, champion of Australia and tho Antipodes. That ought to get Jade Johnson's goat. What i3 thero left in the world's title with all that taken out? Setting new records for the op posing boxmen to hurl at is a regu lar hobby with Walter Johnson, tho Idaho phenom of the Washington Nationals. Last season Johnson set a record by whiffing 316 batsmen. This year Walter was not quite up to his standard as a strike out artist, but just tho same the big Swede hung up a new mark. In a game against the Naps in the latter part of tho season Johnson pitched but sixty-nine balls during tho entire nine innings, winning his game, 2 to 1. This beat all to smash a record set by Christy Mathewson two weeks before, when Big Six pitched only ninety-threo balls to rctiro twenty-seven Red batters. Bob Bescher, the Porkopolis mer cury foot, again won tho National League base-stealing honors by a wide margin. Bob's thefts totaled eighty, while Josh Dovore, the Giant fly chaser, was his nearest rival with sixty-four. Funny thing about the aforementioned Josh De- vore. Just because he fanned five times in a row in tho recent world's series, breezing four times before E Gettysburg Plank and onco on tho deceivers of John Coombs of Colby, Josh came in for some severe kid ding." However, figures show that Josh's double won tho -first game and that Josh's singlo helped to win tho fifth. In view of tho fact that tho Giants won only two, there can't be much kick on Josh. V. Campbell, the St. Louis boy with the Pirates, has an enviable record since debuting in the ulg arena Last year, his first season out, Campbell wound up with a batting average of .32G, or there abouts. This year his swat mark is .309. Moro praiseworthy is his work because ho mado most of his swats when essaying tho role of a "pinch hitter." Here is an all star baseball team picked from the leaders past and present, which has met tho approval of many experts: Catchers M i k o K o 1 1 y , Buck Ewing, Martin Bergen, Roger Bres- nahan. Pitchers John Clarkson, Amos Rusio, Christy Mathewson, Cy Young, Mordec.il Brown. First base, Hal Chase; second base, Napoleon Lajoio; third base, Jimmy Collins; shortstop, Hans Wagner; utility infield, Hugh Jen nings; right field, Willie Keeler; center field, Ty Cobb; left field, Ed Delahanty; utility outfielder, Billy Hamilton. Baseball Comedy The Games Last Sunday Proved Anything But Good Sport. The least said about tho comedy of errors in tho baseball games last Sunday, tho better. It never docs any good to remind a baseball player of ns mistakes, so wo will draw a veil over the game of last Sunday be tween Kahului and Wailuku, for give tho offending players on tho Wailuku team, and expect them to do better next time. Tho blame for collapse of the team in tho ninth. inning cannot bo laid at the door of any particular player, but the team as a whole must bear tho blamo. Up to the ninth inning the game was marked only by the heavy bat- . ting of the losers, and tho playing generally was loose on both teams. ' The second game was another mixup, and even now there seems to be some uncertainty whether a regular league game Avas played, or whether it was merely an exhibition game. IJio ram management wish ed to use a player who was ineligi- bio according to tho rules, and de clared if he was not allowed to play they would forfeit the game. Rather than disappoint the audience Capt. '' Cummings of tho Stars agreed to .. play tho game under protest. ' It was soon apparent that tho new. man on the Paia team was some ball player, as ho fielded his position ? well, and got a hit when two' men were on tho paths in front of hjm. .. The star of the day, however, was Alvin Robinson at short. Three times this player raced to tho out field and got the ball while his back ' was turned to tho diamond, oitwo. occasions robbing tho batter of what looked like sure hits, and shuttinK off ruii3. The Paias won the eamo by a score of 5 to 3, but that they, can bo allowed tho win seems doubt ful. The board of appeals will meet and settle the matter. Next Sunday the games will be played at Wailuku, the Wailukus and Paias playing tho first game, at 1 ftlin rlin Ktjirs nml Knhiiliiia nlavinc the second came. ' .
