things It was finally accomplished

Aggravations of a Balking Car
To make sure of plenty of time
there an early start was planned
and we got away a little before 9
o'clock, sixteen of us. It soon be
came evident that we were going
to have auto trouble. One of the
large cars began to miss on one
cyllrder and then stopped dead.
Careful examination showed that it
was a defective feed ,to the little
vacuum tank; the small connecting
pipe was clogged in some way. But
strange to say, this stoppage was
intermittent. She would go for a few
hundred rods, with plenty of snap
and speed, then stop and think a
bout it a minute or two, then start
again for a similar vigorous spurt.
A similar short run and stop.
A Partial Remedy
Thus, they limped along as far
as Koloa where they hoped to get
relief, but fond the garage shut and
nobody there. With phenomenal pa
tience and assurance, they pushed on

the said bids come In for furnishing Pe- where the garage was open and
they got the trouble remedied, at
least, so the garage man assured
them, but it groved to be only a
partial remedy, for the old trouble
came back again later.
Two Hours Late
However, we finally made the
camp at Tunnel 12, the terminus
of auto navigation, but it was 1
o'clock Instead of 11, as we had
The Blessedness of Lunch
Naturally, everybody was hungry
and the first most pressing engage
ment was lunch. The Japanese dltclir
man very kindly put his kitchen at
our disposal. We cooked up a pot
o rice and reheated our curry,
with all possible celerity, while the
rest arranged an impromptu table
under the kukul trees, set out the
sandwiches and other yiands and
we fell to with much satisfaction and
keen-edge appetites.
Church In the Mountains
Clearing away the lunch things,
and Btralgbtening dresses and stray
locks of hair and adding a few dabs
of powder here and there, as1 they
seemed to be needed, and arrang
ing the autos in a semicircle so that
the congregation might sit on the
running boards, we all got ready for
church. A wise foresight had provid
ed hymn books, so that we were
all fixed for a regular church ser
vice. A Most Delightful and
Inspiring Service
Mrs. Rogers san ga simple and
most appealing solo and did it with
that effective grace which went to
the hearts of all who were there
so that was the conviction of every
one that she had never done better.
By way of responsive readings we
recited "the Lord is my Shepherd"
in unison, we took up a collection,
and instead of a formal sermon Mr.
Lydgate told of some of the prob
lems of mission life in the early
days of Hawaii.
With the soft murmurs of the
water in tho concrete ditch, the rus
tle of tho broad kukui leaves over
head, the songs of the Hawaiian
blrdu In the long reaches above, the
grateful shade of the wide spread
ing trees, and. tho delightful sense
of restfulnoss and peace, it was
material, etc., for a standard teach
ers' school cottage for Hanamaulu

I am going, Garden Island, .....
And my ship is at the pier;
On my lips Is formed a blessing,
In my eyes I find a tear,
For I never can forget you
And the sweetness of your smile.
And I wish that I might linger
Linger yet a little while.
Fragrant land of Golden Sunshine.
Racing waves, with white-capped
Take from me a fond aloha
To the beach at Hanalel.
Let me wreathe for you a garland,
Ere the glad tears blind my eyes,
Let me leave It here forever,
Under fair Hawaiian skies;
That some other guest who lingers
In this paradise so true,
May obtain a faint impression
Of the love I bore for you.
I am going, fairest island,
I am going fur away,
Yet I know you will not miss me.
For my heart is here to stay.

Although it was a most Interest

Off for the Intake
By this time it was pretty well
along ln the afternoon. Nevertheless
it was decided to make a try for
the Intake, though the leader thought
they could hardly make it and back,
in the two hours available.
A Treasure House of Scenic Beauty
It was an unusually beatlful day,
as clear as, a bell, wi.th: every feat
ure of tho magnificent landscape
standing out as sharp cut as a cam
eo, and with the most wonderful
coloring of the varied greens and
browns and reds In the nearer
reaches and the soft purples and
lavendars in the distance. At every
turn of tho trail there were new
panoramas, and fresh outcries of de
light and wonder from the hikers.
Couldn't Quite Make It
Tho dnubta of the leader were
Justified when 4 o'clock came.
when they were to turn back, they
had only reached the waterfall with
the rustic bridge, but they kept on
to the last lap where they could
look up to the end. Here the leader
said they must draw the line and
start back. This they did.
Mermaids In the Mountain Stream
But when they got to the little
little rustic bridge, with the clear
limpid stream beneath with here and
there an inviting pool, some of them
couldn't withstand the temptation,
so they lingered behind, till the
coasts were clear, then speedily strip
ped off and went in Just for a few
moments, but it was like elixer to
the soul, and they came like new
The Best Outing Yet
It was 6 o'clock before they were
all rounded up at Tunnel 12 head
quarters, had gathered up their
traps and were in. their autos and
off. This brought them to the road
makai just ln time for the falling
darkness, and home Just comfort
ably in time for bed, as the missing
car acted up in its own peculiar
fashion all the way.
All in all, It was the common con
census of opinion thnt it was the
very finest outing yet.
The Hele Loaa Outing club had
a very delightful Hawaiian evening
last Tuesday when they were guests
of Mrs. J. II. Hogg Sr., at her hos
pitable and spacious home. In spite
of the rush of the school work and
the multiplicity of social events,
there was a fine attendance.
The special subject of the even
ing was "A Day in the Woods," pre
sented by the leader, J. M. Lyd
gate, who is a great enthusiast and
a recognized authority on that Bort
of thing. He gave them a great deal
of interesting and irstructive Infor
mation about the Hawaiian flora.
and many graphic bits of personal
experience ln the mountains in pur
suit of rare and new plants.
Mr. Sonda was there with proofs
of his pictures taken on the Olokelo
trip a few days before. The pictures
proved, to be very excellent and
called forth many exclamations of
surprise and delight.
The group pictures were especially
good, almost perfect portraits. Most
unique and interesting was that of
the church service, the singing of
the hymn, with everyone looking as
demure and proper, and worshipful
as possible, and all unconscious that
they were being taken, so absorbed
In the service.
Most delicious refreshments were
served following the pictures, and
tho gramophone was turned on and
there was some dancing, which all
enjoyed, even tho' there were some
who "didn't dance."
