The road ia being built with prison labor, which eosta nothing,
so I am' told, that is to say, nothing except hum hire and a few
- other incidents. This kind of road building is both inexpensive
and expeditions. The public don't pay anythlngthHt'ls to say,
nothing but salaries and board and lodging and they get half a
mile of new road every year. On an -adding-machine I estimate

The commission has its janitor and usher all nicked out. Ade

janitor will do a litle promotion work on the side and teach the flsh

It may be heresy for one to question even the benefits Hawaii

The latest military yarn ia that of a recruit oa sentry duty at

was more acquainted with the language of business than with mili

the ex -clerk ;on guard threw up his piece and 'called a halt "Hey
