IT WAS A FLOATING REEF.
Strange Story of a Skipper's Experi
ence in South Seas.
Port Townsem, Wash., March
14. Captain Charles A. Peterson
of the British bark Darra, which
sailed from Puget Sound for Sydney
last August, and is now at Shang
hai, has sent the following letter to
the Branch Hydrographic Oflice
here :
On the 30th of December last,
while mv vessel was in latitude 40
north, longitude 163.50 east, the
men working in the rigging report
ed reefs to the westward. I went
up with glasses and found for
about eight miles the water was
milk-white, with detached patches
at the north end, with a clear blue
water between them. The ship was
lying in a dead calm, with a glassy
sea.
At noon the reef was clearly
visible, and at 2 p. m. it passed,
traveling at the rate of one and a
half to three miles per hour, rush
ing past the ship as if she was
lying moored broadside on in a
strong tide.
All kinds of deep water fish, as
well as four distinct sorts of fish
found in the shallow water or on
the reefs, were playing around the
ship, while the reef, or whatever it
was, passed by us.
At 5 p. m. the foam belt was out
of sight to the eastward. I write
fully on this, as it proves how easy
a man might report false danger.
Had I had a breeze before noon
and sailed away from it, I would
certainly have thought a reef ex
isted. As you will see by my me
teorological log, I had no current
for that twenty-four hours.
Important Archeological Dis
covery. Mr. Walter S-eott, of Ellerslie
Auckland, New Zealand (eldest son
of the late Dr. Wm. Scott, Moffat,
Dumfriesshire,) writing to a relative,
states that a remarkable discovery
has been made there. The scoriae
of the extinct volcanoes in the neigh
borhood of Auckland is used as
metal for the roads. "While the
workmen were recently quarrying
for tbe road metal in a hill forming
part of an extinct volcano they found
what proved to be a carved stone
among the scoriae. The stone is
four inches long by two inches broad,
and about one inch thick in the
middle. So severely had "it been
burned that it was not easy to deter
mine what it was composed of.
Bound the edges are carvings of
human faces, exhibiting six different
faces, with apparently the remains of
two others. The hps are thick and
the foreheads slope back, being
similar to the prehistorio carvings
found in Mexico. Th supposition
of those on the spot is that the carved
stone was the work of some pre
historic New Zealander. '

Of Interest to Managers of Pima

A Model Plant is not complete without
Electric Power, thus dispensing with
small Engines.
Why not generate your ower from
one CENTRAL Station ? One generator
can furnish power to your Pumps, Centri
fugals, Elevators, Plows, Kailways and
Hoists ; also furnish light and power for
a radius of from 15 to 20 miles.
Electric Power being used faves the
labor of hauling coal in your field, also
water, and does away with hihg priced
engineers, and only have oce engine to
look after in your mill.
Where water power is available, it
costs nothing to generate Electric Power.
The Hawaiian Electric Company is
now ready to furnieh Electric Plant
and Generators of all descriptions at
short notice, and also has on hand a
large stock of Wire, Chandeliers, and all
Electrical Goods.
All orders will be given prompt atten
tion, and estimates furnished for Light

given to House and Marino Wiring.

Mr. John A. Scott, Manager
of the Hilo Sugar Company
gives the following wonderfu)
record of the working of the
NATIONAL CANE SHRED
DER, which was erected by
their works at the commence
ment of the crop just har
vested :
"During the past week the
Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex
ceeded any of its former
records by closing the 125
hours grinding with an output
of300ftons. This is fully 10
per cent, more than the best
work of former years.
"The three roller mill being
26 in. by 54 in. and the two
roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The
first mill doing this amount of
work in an efficient manner
and with great ease, compared
with work on whole cane,
owing to thorough preparation
of the cane by the National
Cane Shredder, recently erec
ted by the Company. And
by its use the extrac
tion has been increased from
3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all
kinds of cane, and in some
cases 80 per cent, has been
reached; the average being 75
to 78 per cent., according to
quality.
"I continue to find the
megass from shredded cane
better fuel than from whole
cane.
"The shredder has been
working day and night foi
seven months and has given
me entire satisfaction, having
shredded during that time
about seventy thousand tons
of cane, and a large part of it
being hard ratoons.
"The shredder and engine
require very little care or
attention."
