They findno Island in the group where more is done for tin welfare and comfort of the workers than here and they will find labor better satisfied than elsewhere. The last report of Kula Sanitarium showed 14 patients dis charged which means that there were practically that many arrested i eases in one month.

THE CIVIC CONVENTION pciicd the Ninth Annual Civic leonn d the delegates from the In Honolulu this morni'iii' there i t Vu cut ion. (loveriior I'arrinizlou vi otlu-r Islands and proceedings now are in full swing. Such nieetiiius as those of the Civic Convention where matters of mutual importance and interest to all parts of the territory are discussed are highly desirable and those who attend always return home with the report that the time spent in attendance was highly profitable. So no doubt will it be this time and it is to be regretted that a larger number from this Island could not be in attendance. In many things folk of one community or section can profit by the experience of others and the experiences of others are contained in pap.-rs and reports 1 lint are read and in the discussion that follows. Those who attend, then, bring home with them new ideas which they can disseminate through their own communities. It is possible fin- such conferences to lay out a general tentative program for the progress of the whole territory without conflicting with the interests of any section, as in the case of the consideration that will be given to securing a larger appropriation for the Hawaii Tourist Uureau. Every Island benefits to a greater or less extent from the tourist travel to the Islands. Maui does not benefit so much as do Honolulu and Hawaii but that is to a large extent Maui's own fault. Her people have slid to be awakened to all that a large and constant inllnx f visitors will mean. The awakening is slow, but it is coming. The subject of public education is another that will be discussed on Honolulu and one upon which it will be well if some agreement can be reached and there are other features of the program which should be productive of good for Hawaii nei. There has nol been the wide spread interest this year as in form er years but one mav hope that the meeting will bring a revival of interest and that the movement for Territoria of the civic convention. - i : fa No. 1 at the end and runs forward, ' handing one end of the rope to No. 3, them each carry one end of the rope i down each side of the column until j they reach the end, when No. 3 leaves No. 2 and runs forward to No. 4 to re j peat the performance with his new partner. So the game continues until the last player in the file carries the rope to the original leader. The file finish- ing lirst wins the game. If not many 1 are playing and there are but two (lies, each victory counts five points, 1 and it takes twenty-five points to count a game. All the players in line must be on the alert to avoid stumb lng over tlie rope as it goes down the file.

The one shown in the cut is a good ex ample of this kind of seat and was made in New Kngland somewhere about 1650. They were not so num-i erous as .other chairs and they were meant for heads of families or other important persons. Oak was the wood almost invariably used. ' "Wainscot" chairs were built in a' far more massive and substantial ' way than other types of chairs. They; were really pieces of cabinet work and t heir construction resembled the, construction of chests or cupboards. The solid backs were paneled, the ; seats were heavy slabs of wood and' the stout turned legs were braced wide gat herin gs ' wit h heavy stretchers, as were the The Sportfolio What jockey rode Exterminator wlien he won the Kentucky Derby?

He holds that it is not necessary to select the names of the jurors from ihe names of those who voted at the last general election and the law seems to be clear on that point. In determining the numbers of jurors 1o be drawn from the differ ent districts the law provides that there shall be an apportionment in accordance with the votes cast but that does not mean that the commissioners in drawing shall be restricted to the list of voters. The law says that any male person who has the (nullifications of a voter is eligible and liable 1o jury duty. The tact that a person did not vote does not take from him his (nullifications as a voter. Under the old ruling for more than a year there has been a shortage of jurors and men who had served in the so recent past that they had reason to expect to be excused from service for a time had to serve again. To restrict the choice of jurors to persons who voted at the last election is to encourage persons who seek to avoid jury service to stay away from the polls. It is probable that in Maui there are few such persons but it is asserted that there are some. For such persons to avoid their obligation for jury service while others are forced to attend and serve term after term is unjust to the man who feels he lias a duty to the community and himself to perform by go ing to the ballot box. In any event there would be a larger list of eligibles next year than this and the attitude ot Ihe court, sion, will still further lengthen the list. legs of "refectory" tables. The backs and the underframing of the seats were often elaborately carved. "Wainscot" chairs, usually of the simpler designs without carving, are being reproduced to some extent and, j if one has other furniture to go well with them, they are suitable for use in halls or in large room beside a fire- place. They are not desirable in very j smau rooms. Avoia reproductions in which the proportions are skimped and ihin down. One of these chairs in a house is quite enough.
