Editor of Maul News, Dear Sir We have entered the Star Bulletin Harden Contest and on the tenth of January we started gardening The vegetables grew and we thought we were going to have lots of them but we were disappointed when the kona storru came and washed away most of our gardens. The chickens ate the rest for us. Heing so determined to have a garden we fenced a place up and then we started again. A week after the planting we certainly had a beautiful garden with flowers which we trans planted around it for decoration. We were all happy then, but to our great disappointment a kona storm came again and washed out a part of It and ah Insect is destroying the rest. So we would like to know how to destroy the insects. We are so sorry now for we wanted to get n prize and we know we won't get it because when we start again it will be too late. Yours truly, HISAO KAUE.

Dealers HILO : : HONOLULU : : WAILUKU I THEATERS n I Ethel Clayton Ethel Clayton Is playing in the most thrilling, most unusual picture in many moons, and In the big scene she wears a gown made of beads, or something, that fairly out-Shebas Sheba. The picture is "Sins of Kosanne," and Miss Clayton is cos tumed to represent the famous queen at a lawn fete held in Kimberley, near the famous diamond mines. Up to this time, according to the story, she has been playing the role of a sort of feminine Jekyll and Hyde outwardly the pretty but otherwise quite ordinary daughter of an English widow, but inwardly torn with a mad craving for bright stones which she received from a native Malay witch doctor when she was an infant. The result Is a Btory of thrills, mystery and in the end love. The plot Is novel, but Miss Clayton's earnest interpretation of the fascinating hero ine makes her strange experiences seem real. Wallace Reid Wallace Reid appears to fine advan tage in "Always Audacious." In this picture Mr. Reid plays two parts, one, a society man of wealth Hnd tlie other a crook. Roth men are alike as two peas and this resemb lance aids the scheme of the crook to assume the station of the other to rob him of his wealth and fiancee. He nearly succeeds in his purpose and but for a but it would be unfair to readers to reveal in advance one of the most smashing climaxes ever seen in a motion picture story. Of course, Mr. Reid plays the roles of the crook and his intended victim. How he does it, the skill of the camera man reveals in many thrilling scenes. The picture, which Is based on Ren Ames Williams' story. "Toupours de A'Audace," is distinctly worth while. Madlaine Traverse A strong photoplay of love and ac tion, "The Hell Ship," with beautiful Madlaine Traverse in the stellar role. This picture is made all the more in tense and thrilling by the fact that the entier dramatic action os the film plainly shows, takes place on board a (ishing schooner and on a life raft in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Miss Traverse, the star, does some very strong work as Paula, the girl captain of a "hell ship," who subdues a mutinous crew, yet finds herself "merely a woman." The closing scene of the picture, involving the final sacrifice of the heroine Is beautiful. Adv. Passenger arrived per S. S. Kilau ea, February 22 Kahului Rev. De Kay, Dr. Wert La, Mrs. A. T.
