"It wr.s bu.t a short tirao ago
that we put in this 8-horso power
gas engine in tho storohome. As
you see; it has boen used for roll

ago wo deoidpl to put on an at
tachment for the hoisting of grain
and hay. This1 was first tried in
tho storehouse, and we found that
it workod most satisfactorily
This being true, wo decided to go
still further, and lead the rnpo
ovor to the main': building for tbe
purpose of hoisting tbo bay and
graiu there. All day yesterday
tbo hoisting went on without,acoi
dent." . ,
Qeorgo H.-Paris told tho follow

tho door. I noticed a slackoumg
of the ropo, nnd hnard a whistle to
"lot go." Tho rope over at the
rani n building bad broken, while
n load of crnin was being boistod.
Sherman slackened the rope, but
seeing a twist on the spool readied
over to straighten it out. Sud
denly his hand was caught, and I
could eje him begin to revolve,
slowly at first. The alarm was

ascent of Mauua Loa by way of
Kailua, Kona, with tbe following
party: Professor Ingallp, Major
McCarthy. Stearns Buck, J. bol
lard and H. A. Klucgd logsther
with throe Portuguese guidtm
Tho party took three pack inulm
aud started out on Suuday, July I)
It took two days to reach the sum
mit.of Mauua Loa from which
place, after n good look at the
crater of Mokuaweowoo which was
-(teaming slightly, tho party start
od toraalto tho descent on the
Hilooido to tho scone of llie" ac
tivity. A Portuguese, tho animnle
and most of tho provisions wero
loft in camp at tbe top. Continu
ing tho etury Mr. Davoy spoke uu
"Our parly started out bravely
but, when about fivo miles dowu,
two of tbo party succumbed to
fatigue and other things and re
turned to camp. Aftor twenty
miles' travel one of the guides
aava.ont. Tho..remaindBr oLthe
parly, four all told, continued tr
to tho twenty- five mile mark
where wo found the eighth and
most active cone.
"Just here, lot mo mention tho
cones'. The first four wore ex

eighth wero in a stato of groat ho

high. and had a diamotor of about
500 feet. As we wore standing mi

we oquUI see rocks as largo as a
horse thrown into tbo air. Full
iua hack into tho buruinc lavu, a
distinct splashing sound could b
heard and then another aud etitl
another great mass would be
hurled into the air. ,
"After I had takon all tho pic
tures I wanted and the party had
seen all possible, wo started again
toward the summit. It took u.-t
fifteen hours aud at about every
titty yards U became necessarry
for us to lie dowu from oxlium
tiou. The experience was a torri
ble one but we did not get 'cold
feet? for a minute. We were
twenty hours without water and I
guess that was enough to try any
man, considering the bent arid
Upon roaohing tho top wtook
necessary rest and then returned
to Kona to catch tho steamer. It
took us three days to mako the
