The total eclipse began at S: 30 and ended at 9:59, the moon leaving the shadow anil shining brightly again at 11:9. People all over the island were out watching the incident. It may be of interest to know that tlio Hawaiian Islands will have another total eclipse of the moon this year. It will occur on the night of December 27, starting at 9:35 p. in., the moon clearing the shadow at 12:57 on the morning of the 2Sth. There will be still another total eclipse of the moon this year. It will occur on July 4th., but on ac count of that being America's In dependence Day, will not disturb this part of the world. The sun-will not favor the Islands with any unusual stunts in 1917, although it will be partially shaded to other parts of the world, four times January 22, June IS, July IS and December 13. The eclipse was made the finer by the fact that it was ''full moon" night. Lihue Drill Shed Work on the big, new National Guaid drill shed and armory in Lihue will begin in a very few days.

Howard Hitchcock, returning from the Waimea canyon on Satur day last, gave an informal exhibit 'of his preliminary sketch for the ! Kauai diorama, at the home of Mr 'and Mrs. J. M. Lydgate, which was attended by a goodly number of those most interested. In spite of adverse weather con ditions, the artist had been success- uu in malting a very impressive sketch about five feet by fifteen inches, which gives an excellent idea of the vivid coloring and the impressive grandeur of that won derful region. This sketch will be carefully and accurately enlarged for the diorama to a finished picture, 30 by 10. feet which will be set in the alcove, with a prepared realistic, natural, foreground, and then skilfully light ed, the whole to give the effect of the actual scene. The Kauai' view is to be one of seven, representing the chief attractions of the Islands, including the Volcano, Ifaleakala, Honolulu from Tantalus, and the view from the Pali. They will bo ' housed in a .special building of ar tistic design, on Bishop street, op posite the Young Hotel. Work is being rushed on the whole enter prise so that it may be ready for the Mid-Pacific Carnival. Hitchcock has in hand two of these dioramas, Waimea Canyon and Haleakala, and Waldron the others. Kauai is to be congratulated in having her glorious scenery set forth by a son of the soil, who has known and loved them intimately for years, and who will display them with an affectionate as well as an experienced and skillful hand.
