Many people, after a long spell of opprcsslvo heat, suiTer from las3l. tude, los3 of spirits, and a gonrral "run down" fooling. They need a courbo of Ayer's Sarsaparllla, a mediclno which lius rovlved and restored to actlvo lifo nnd health thousands of such sufferers. A lady recently returned to England from South Africa writes concerning this "WoiiiH Hiciiie" "Whilo In Capo Town tho past summer I suffered greatly from the long-continued heat. I was com pletely worn out ; my blood seemed to become as thin as water, and I lost all energy and interest in life. My friends recommended Aycr's Sarsaparllla, and a courso of this wonderful mediclno restored my health and spirits.

Petition iid Complalata from tba I.rprr Neltlrnirut Acted On-Varl- oaa Repurla from Officials). At yostordny's session of the Board of Hoalth thoro wore pro Bent Attorney-Goueral Smith, pre. Biding; Drs. Emerson and Wood, T. F. Lansing, O. A Brown nnd D. Eoliipio, ruombors, Executive Officer Reynolds, Secretary Wil cox aud Drs. Mousarrat nnd Al varez. After tho reading of tho minutes of last meeting tho Attorney-General said: "Before proceeding to dispose of tho two weeks' business boforo us, I wish to make official notifi cation of tho death of B.W. Meyer nnd to plnco on record 'my per sonal appreciation of his untiring and faithful sorvico to tho Board of Health. In his death not only has the Board lost a valued serv ant but the country at largo. It is now more than 35 years since this government first began to take hold of the leprosy question and from tho very incoption of the movement Mr. Meyer has been identified with it. Difficult ques tions have been mot and solved in this long period of time and others are yet to come, but simpler and easier of solution now perhaps than in the past I have been personally associated with Mr. Meyer in these nnd other matters pertaining to tho Board of Health for nearly thirty years, since I was a member of the Kauai board. In all that time I can say that no one has been more faithful.honest. untiring or has givon more thought to tue subjeot tuan Mr. Meyer. He is gone now and we can do no more than express our great ap preciation of his valuable services and our sympathy for bis family. It is true there have been in stances of fault-finding but no man is perfeot and we Know that no ope could havo been more cor rect in his work. I desire again personally to record my high ap preciation of his services to this board, services which as nearly as we can ascertain have extended over a period of some 33 years. He has been identified with the Leper Settlement since 1870, but I believe he was made an agent of tne board as early ob ib04. Tnere are few if any public officials in the history of the country who come up to him iu point of con tinuous Borvioe, Marshal Parke's thirty years in offico being the nearest. Dr. Emerson I desiro to add my testimony to what has been ably said of tho valuo of Mr. Meyor's long services. His death is not only a loss to tho people of tho settlement and to the Board but moro especially to tho island of Molokai. I wish to offer the following resolutions for tho con sideration of tho Board: AVhorens It haB pleased Al mighty God to romovo by death Mr. It. W. Moyor, a faithful and honest officer of tho Board of Health: Resolvod Thnt in tho death of Mr. Meyer, tho Board has suffered great loss, and tho public a ser vant who has romlered it sorvico of ini'stiiniiblo valuo. Thnt tho momboru of tho Board horoby do niro to testify thoir high cstoem of lua merit nud to toudor their sympathy to tho widow nnd mom born of tho family of tho dooonsed iu thoir borunvomout. Thnt thouo resolutions bo spreml upon tint roconls of tho Hoard, nud u copy of tho Hnmo soul to tho family of tho docoasod, Mr. l.iiiiHiiiKiii seconding tho adoption of tliu resolutions 1 can Hiiy porHotmlly that 1 heartily on dorsu what has boon wild by tho previous speakers, Mr. Brown 1 luiwi nrolmhlv known Mr, Moyurnwro intimately in iirivntn Ufa limn any member of tliu board, Otliura linvo loati tied to his publio worth nnd I feel it due to him to add a fow words asto his private life. It was cor tninly a remnrknblo one romark nblo in tho way ho brought up and kept together soon a largo family. His strict boubo of justico scorned to actuate his whole lifo. No member of his family was requir ed to do anything without receiv ing the exnet equivalent of his or her work. Every member of it had a trocjo and worked at it for the general good. It iB a pity thoro are not moro families liko it, In putting tho question presi dent Smith said it was a source of gratification to him that all tho raiso of Mr. Meyer had not beon oft until after his death. Ho had rdpeatodly beon tho rboipionl of it in life, not only from tho Board but from others. The resolutions thou passed unanimously. Dr. Monsartat's roports from the slaughtor house for two weeks were road and filed. A joint report from Drs.Monsar rat and Shaw on dairy cows ex amined for tuberculosis showed CI cattle had beon tagged during tho provious two weeks. Of thoso 39 had been tested and 18 con demncd and killed. Twolvo had not been tested owing to thou tomperaturo but were segregated. Fish inspector Keliipio roport ed tho recept of 29,779 fish at tho market for the week ending June 6, and 35,000 for tho week ending Juno 13. The Board of Medical Exaniiu ers reported favorably on tho ap- filication of Dr. A. Sinclair for a iconso to proviso medicine and on motion the same was granted. Mr. Ahlo of Haualei, Kauai, petitioned tho Board for leavo to set apart a Chinese cemetery on land belonging to him, and, for Eermission to remove thereto the odies of such Ohinose as were buried at Hanalei. The Board did not like the idea oE establishing private cemotories at will and referred tho matter to Sheriff Garter for further particu lars as to location and extent of proposed cemetery. Two convicts who havo been confined in tho jail of the Lepor Settlement since September 28, 1894, petitioned for pardon, stat ing that "on their sacred honor" they would nover offend again. Mr. Boynolds said tho mon were both hard cases and had been concerned iu various rob beries, cattle stealing, and burn ings previous to thoir conviction. They were supposed also to have broken into tho store on several occasions. The men had not yet served half of their sentences. Attorney General Smith said tho meting out of justico to criminals at the Settlement was ono of the matters that the gov ernment had under consideration. The present system was faulty and objectionable in that it de nied prisoners the right of appeal. It was probable tho government would ask tho next, Legislature to act on the matter. In the mean time tho present petition would bo taken into consideration. G. K. Ahai, recently appointed deputy Bhoriff at Hanalei, was ap pointed agent of tho Board for that district. A long petition from a lepor who signed himsolf "assistant resident physician at Kulaupapti dispensary," asking tho Board to require tho resident superintend ent to pay him 818 back salary was referred to Executive Officer Reynolds. Another lopor complained of tho exorbitant priuo charged for fish. Tho Board decided it had uothiug to do with tho salo of fish at tho Settlement.

Clerk Wilcox was authorized to appoint his suc cessor. A protest from tho Woodlawn Dairy against tho killing of their cattle for tuberculosis was receiv ed and filed. President Smith read n lottor from Chni lea Elliot, nn English voturiuaiy surgeon rosiding at ritlo, coutnimug seVBrnl sugges tions on tho stamping out of tuborculosis amoug cattle. Mr. "Elliot's principal suggestion was that tho district of Koua, Oahu, Bhould be quarnutinod against tho rest of tho islands. The Attorney - Gonoral thon gave tho Board an account of his visit to Hilo, saying tho new hos pital building was approaching completion. It was much lniger than ho supposed to have beon possiblo for tho contract price S'2500. As far aB ho could judgo tliu building would be a substantial one. With regard to tho pioposed Victoria annex, ho had talked with Mr. Elliot and others who had tho matter in hand. They would not complete their arrnugoments until after tho jubilee celebration. Tho Board then went into exe cutive sossiou to consider the ap pointment of a successor to Mr. Meyer. m CIIILDHKXVS HPOIUN. Hojn nnd GIHn to ll,o a Rood Time on Jnbllco Mornlnir.

S. cruiser Philadelphia, with spaci ous decks and rooms, but, it was much crowded last niylii. Boar Admiral Beanit-lee, Conmmiulor in Chief of the Pacific Squadron, Captain Cotton and officers of tho flagship, gave a reception to tho people of Honolulu, for the pur poso of meeting H. M. Sowall, tho now Minister of the United Statos, and Mrs. Sowall. And tho peoplo came, several hundred of them. PreBidont, and Mrs. Dolo, mera bors of the Exocutivo aud the Judiciary Captain Kurooka and officers of the Japatieso cruisor Naniwa, Captaiu Buck aud officers of tho U. S. cruiser Marion, with the diplomatic aud consular corps, wore conspicuous in the throng. Admiral Beardsleo, Captain' Cotton, Lieutenant Stoney and Minister and Mrs. Cooper received tho guests aud presontod them to Minister and Mrs. Sowall. The recoption party dissolved, however, within three quarters of an hour, so that people arriving a little Into oithor presented themselves or had friends perform tho office. Mrs. Sowall, it was learned with general regret, was not feeling quito well. Dancing began early but pro ceeded with a little difficulty owing to the crush. Excellent music fur tho purpose was fur nished by the flagship's band, also -delightful promenado interludes botween the dances. Decorations were elaborate and of great beauty. Tho gangway was draped with flags and arched with colored electric lights. Upon a crescent screen, facing tho quarter deck, the Hawai ian salutation, "Aloha" glowed in incandescent bulbs. ;There woro cosy alcoves of flags along tho bulwarks on the port Bide, and pavilions of similar material form ed resting places on the quarter dock. Near the companion way was an armory, its floors strewn with ferns and flowers, tho center piece of which was a rapid fire field piece, about which were dis posed stands of arms, old-fashioned swords, and pistols, etc. Bunt ing screens and festoons depend ed on all hands from the upper works. Perhaps most admired of all the compositions was a rockery, containing a profuse display of calla lilies, variegated leaves, fernB, etc., a lively fountain play ing in the center. The decorating committee, that did itself so proud r consisted of Lieutenant Com mandor Ingorsoll, Dr. Hcssler and Lioutenant Kearney. Bofreshments wero served at tablos in tho Admiral's quartern and in tho officers' mess rooniB, They wero choice iu quality and sumptuous in varioty.

At tho departure of Mr. nud .Mrs. He -wall tho salutatiou was tho "Star Spangled Banner."
