As previously stated, Mr. C. J.
Sherwood, manager of the Long
Branch Baths, Waikiki, has had the
marine toboggan at that popular re
sort put in first-class order. Yester
day afternoon on the invitation of
Mr. H. R. Macfarlane several gentle
men made an inspection ami practi
cal test of the toboggan. Mr. Mac
farlane, Mr. E. R. Hendry and re
presentatives of the press rode down
tfie steep decline repeatedly, finding
it hard to get enough of the exhilarat
ing sport. The frame has been made
perfectly staunch and steady, the
rollers are as well set as parts of the
most exact machinery, so that there
is not the slightest jar or jolt ex
perienced in making the run from
the platform 84 feet high to the surf
about 50 yards from the base of the
tower. The toboggan makes a glori
ous leap Irom the end of the ways,
sometimes skipping fifty or sixty feet
over the waves. The water is not
very deep at the striking place, while
the sand bottom there is the most
even on the Waikiki beaches. Mr.
Sherwood keeps all the appointments
of Long Branch in thorough order,
and has enough helpers to give every
attention required by patrons.

His Honor, in summarily putting
the plaintiff out of court, strongly

that he had instructed the Deputy
Attorney-General to institute pro

these Chinese should understand
that they must not play with the
Court or with acknowledging offi

that verbal authority was sufficient
for the signing of one's name by an
other. The Chief Justice declined
to entertain such a proposition. .The
offender was arrested under a war

two aliases including the name of the

"ZEPHYRS" WORK THEM.
Just think of a twelve-foot Aermo
tor running a six-inch pump and lin
ing a thirteen hundred gallon tank in
less than an hour I Do you know of
any other wiud motor that will do
this? We try to keep posted on such
things but fail to find anything in
wind history that even approaches
this record. The mills wo speak of
force water live hundred feet and ele
vate it twenty-five hard to believe
isn't it, but it's a fact. They are as
strong as the strongest material and
good workmanship can make them
and cheaper than any other mill on
the market, two points of excellence
in their favor.
Another thing in their construc
tion, or mechanism, whichever you
prefer, is tbe fact of their being made
so that they will not fall to pieces by
being overworked. They make three
revolutions and pump once. The
strain is not all put on the wheel at
each revolution, it is equally divided
and consequently the wheel lasts
longer than the ordinary run of wind
mills. We are not afraid to talk ibout
the Aermotors now that they have
been tried and proved satisfactory
right here at home. We have had lo
publish testimonials from parties at a
distance because Aermotors were new
here and had not been tried, but now
that we have sold so many and every
one has been satisfactory to the pur
chaser we can get on all right by re
ferring parties to those people who
have tried them here. We continue
advertising them because they are
still a comparatively new thing on the
Islands before long they will not
need a single notice in the newspapers
because they will sell themselves. We
want people to try theru and if they
are wrecked in a wind whicji does not
level your house at the same time we
will refund the money. A bold offer
but it is a way we have of doing busi
ness. We know they are strong
enough to warrant our guaranteeing
them, and that one will probably last
longer than the purchaser will have
any use for it. If you want a wind
mill remember that the Aermotor sold
by us is cheaper, stronger and better
than any windmill on the market and
will do more work than any wind
motor ever invented. For sale only
