An order for ten plows in
one day from one plantation
is an indication of the direction
of the wind in the plow trade.
The Hendry Breaker is in the
nine hole for big work, and for
ordinary plain every day plow
ing, the Hendry Rice Plow has
no equal, They have floated
on the crest of a popular wave
since their introduction with no
danger of an under-tow carry
ing them back.
On some plantations the
managers have a riding plow
in operation, but it is not all
land that is suitable for this
plow, it is good on level
stretches but not on up-hill-and
downclale places. The
Gazelle three-wheeler is con
sidered the best of these, best
because of its many good qua
lities and because we sell
them. The plow is hung from
and lifted by two cranks,
which move together, and to
both of which the beam is se
curely attached, one being in
front and the other at the rear
of the beam. The action of
the lifting lever is to squarely
raise or lower the entire plow
bottom. It does away with
that nicety of adjustment at
the clevis necessary on other
riding plows and so makes the
Gazelle specially adapted to
inexperienced plowmen. This
construction allows the Gazelle
to open a furrow either flat or
on an angle. As the plow lifts
six inches from the ground it
is high enough to clear all ob
structions when on the road.
No exertion is necessary to
start the plow; by merely
loosening the lever and start
ing the team the plow will
enter the ground to any re
quired depth, when it may be
locked in position by the
In constructing this plow the
manufacturers spare no ex
pense in the quality of the
materials used, and for a riding
plow its makeup stamps it as
the best that ever came to the
Islands. We have only a few
of them and offer them cheap
because we wish to devote our
plow space to the Hendry
brands of agricultural imple
ments. If you have ever had broken
thumb nails from opening a
pocket knife you are probably
as willing to avoid the annoy
ance and disagreeable feeling
as we are to provide you with
the means of doing so. There
is only one way to keep your
nails perfect and that by get
ting one of the Patent Knives in
which the blades open by sim
ply touching a spring. We've
sold ten dozen of them to fas
tidious people. If you belong
to that set you'll want one.
The approach of spring
kindles a desire in people to
paint their houses and fences,
dress them up, as it were, for
Easter. Strange to relate we
have everything necessary to
put your place in good shape,
and by the way the Califor
nians, and we take our styles
from that State, now paint
their houses in one color and
without any contrasting shades
in the trimmings. The effect
is at once beautiful and catchy.

OLD TIMES BEVIVED.
ProBontntion of a Silvor Trumpet to
O. E. Williriins by Hook & Lad
Last night n tostimoninl of n raro
nature was tondorod to Mr. 0. E.
Williams, tho oldest veteran of tho
voluntoor Fire Department. Mr.
Williams joined Protection Hook &
Ladder Company in 1857, soon after
tho first reorganization of the Hono
lulu Firo Dopartinont. Ho was soon
after oloctod dologato from that
company to tho Board of Represent
atives. Aftor serving fnitlifully in
that capacity for several years, in
which ho was one of tho most inllu
ential members of I ho Board, Mr.
Williams was elected Second Assist
ant Engiuoor of tho Department, At
tho nest annual election ho was pro
moted to bo First Assistant En
gineer. His noit promotion was to
the top of tho ladder, ho being elect
ed Chiof Engineer thrco years in
succession. Two years his nomina
tion was unanimous, and another
year thero wore only throo meinbors
to uissom irom nis nomination. j.iis
oloctiou for a fourth term w;3 only
prevented by his declining of the of
iico. Mr. Williams remained an ac
tivo firoman until his depart uro for
San Francisco some voars atro. when
ho was placed on tho honorary roll
of his company. Sinco then ho has
always while living horo kept up his
koon intorost in tho welfaio of tho
In tho early days of Mr. Williams'
connection with tho Department,
hand ongiues woro in uso and musclo
had to do tho work done by steam
to-da3T. For many years Mr. Wil
liams ran with tho machine- at overy
firo that occurred while ho was in
town. One timo ho was badly in
jured and had a narrow escape fiom
being killed. There was a collision
botween tho engine and his cotn-panj-'s
truck as both rushed out to
gether from tho Boll Tower. Mr.
Williams was caught between tho
vehicles and pinned thero forstneral
minutes until a score of men had
pulled tho trucks apart. He received
a severe blow in tho bin from a
shaft, which laid him up for some
When ho was Chief Engineer Mr.
Williams gavo a banquet to tho
whole brigade at his houso on tho
plains. Dr. Hutchinson, Minister
of tho Interior, other otlicials, and
prominent residents wore among tho
guests. Tho band of tho Austrian
warship Donau was in attendance.
Mr. John A. Hassingor, the present
Chiof Clerk of tho Interior Depart
ment, who is also a veteran fireman
and ovChiof Engineer, acted as
caterer and mastor of coionionies.
When all woro seated around tho
fostivo board, and boforo tho feast
ing began Mr. Hassingor called on
Dr. Hutchinson to perform a little
ceremony. Tho Minister addressed
Chiof Engineer Williams in tonus
complimentari of his services as
head of tho Dopartmont, on whoso
bohalf ho then presented him with a
massive gold medal set with dia
monds. The medal was suitably in
scribed on ootu tho obverse and re
verse. It was studded with 3G dia
monds, and was worth hundreds of
dollars. This beautiful memento
Mr. Williams now has carefully pre
served, as one of his most precious
housohold treasures, at his residence
Among tho adornments of Hook
Si Ladder Co.'s hall was a heavy sil
ver trumpot, enclosed in an upright
glass and koa wood case. "When tho
volunteer Firo Dopartinont was dis
banded a few weeks ago, to givo
place to a paid dopartmont, each
company had to dispose of its pri
vato effects. Hook ite Ladder Co., on
tho recommendation of a committee
on tho disposal of tho proporty, de
cided to present thoir gallant vete
ran member with tho trumpet above
described as a souvenir of his most
honorable career as a member of tho
Department. Last night, after tho
sale of other effects, was fixed for
tho timo of presentation.
By tho kindness of tho Board of
Firo Commissioners, Firo Police hall
was placed at tho dispos.il of t bo
committee. Mr. Goo, Houghtailing,
successor in tho company of his
father an old-time comrade of Mr.
Williams as caterer had a fino ttir
koy collation spread in tho hall. Mr,
Williams was invited to tho seat of
honor at tho table, supported on tho
right by D. Logan, delegate of tho
company, and on tho loft by G. C.
Konyon, chairman of committee,
while Henry Kaia, foreman, occu
pied tho vice chair. Other olliuors
and members of tho committee
formed tho rest of tho party, Bo
foro falling to with knives and forks,
tho health of tho guest of tho o oil
ing was drunk. At tho close of the
feast Delegate Logan with a few re
marks prosontod the silvor trumpet
to Mr. Williams. In accepting tho
gift tho veteran fiio chiof gave sonio
highly interesting reminiscences of
the early life of tho volunteer Firo
Dopartinont. Ho remarked with
feeling on tho fact that lie was "tho
solo survivor in tho company of I lie
pioneers of tho voluntoor Firo De
partment. Lator he said that if over
yolunteors woro again wanlod for
firo protection, and that company
ro-ontoied active sorvico, it would
givo him groat pleasure to present
them with tho trumpet again.
Tho history of tho trumpet makes
its presentation to Mr. Williams pu-
ouharly appropriate Ho wus one of
tho contributors to the fund for
buying it for presentation to tho
company more than a quarter of a
century ago, and the case enclosing
it was made at tho timo in his own
