1896. 3 5 NEWSY MAT I ITEMS. Arrurat Account of Kaloonist Prv "s Fall From the BalooiU Baseball Seems to te Booming Alon Society is by no MeaD Resting Very Quiet. MAUI, Sept. 5. During Saturday af ternoon, August 29th, Wailuku streets in the vicinity of the hotel were crowd ed with people. Some one said that he never saw so many people together on Maui. They waited patiently and they watched eagerly the inflation of the balloon with hot air, generated by the burning of sundry gallons of kerosene. It was rumored that $100 or $150 was raised by subscription before the as cension. Somewhat after 5 p. m.. Price, the aeronaut, entered the netting of the parachute which was attached to the lower ropes, and the ascent of the balloon began amid the cheering of the multitude. Hardly had the noise ceased when an awful silence ensued the balloon had burst, and Price was seen to unhook the parachute, turn a somersault and fall like a stone a dis tance of 50 to 75 feet into a mango tree growing in the yard of W. T. Robinson. The tree saved the life of the balloon ist, for with the exception of a severely scratched face he was uninjured. The ascent and descent were accomplished within five minutes. Base ball affairs are decidedly lively in Wailuku. During the same After noon as the balloon disaster the Wai luku boys vanquished the Kamehameha nine, 18 to 11, in spite of the fact that the Honolulu boys had James Kauka of Makawao to catch for them. The play ers were as follows: Wailuku: Akaina, c; Cummings, p and captain; Bailey, lb; David Kuika hi, 2b; Chas. Chillingworth, 3b; A. Crook, ss; C. Paela, If; J. Ross, cf; Harry Mossman, rf. Kamehameha Ako Aki, p and cap tain; James Kauka, c; James Cocket, lb; John Cocket. 2b; Kauhane, 3b; Oana, ss; Kaloi. If; Ainana Nawahine, cf; Paulo, rf. Lawrence Crook was umpire. During Thursday, the 3d, the Kame hamehas turned the tables on the Wai luku nine, 13 to 9, having sent for Meheula, the crack Honolulu pitcher, for the purpose. Today the decisive game will be played, and as both sides expect victory, the interest in the con test is at fever heat. During Monday, August 31st, a small fire occasioned a great flurry on Pala plantation. A little cook house in the midst of a plantation camp was burned. It is stated that Josepa is the new District Magistrate for Hana, vice Ka leo. Kakaia, the former captain of po lice, takes Josepa's place as deputy sheriff. During Friday evening, the 4th, a small progressive "forty-two" party was given by Miss Aiken of Paia as a farewell to Miss Juliette King, who will depart for her Honolulu home today. Miss May Hayselden of Lahaina and Miss Lucy Hayselden of Lanai are guests of the D. D. Baldwins of Haiku. W. L. Hardy of Kauai is inspecting Nahiku coffee lands. Miss Kate Fleming will have charge of the Haiku school for the next school year. During the 3d the schooner Mary Dodge, Hansen master, arrived in Ka li ului, 17 days from San Fransisco. She brought general merchandise for Pala and Hamakuapoko plantations. Weather Pleasant. (!onicJy in Three Acts. Act I. Time 7:30 o'clock Friday evening.

The Many Adaptation of a Wonderful Genius. "Well. Jabez, what is the matter? You Mem absorlx d. " "Lemme alone. I'm inventin. " "Doing w hat?" "Inventin, I tell you. Got the artist's wh l down fine. His pal-tte is in front, his easel's behind, a:;d all his paints nn the crank? they k'-ep better mixed mat way and he just wraps his canvas around the upper bar of the frame. See? And I haven't forgotten his umbrella. " "Is that all?" "No. I had to give a power of thought to a wheel for a double bass kind of Um ieldly thing. Got over it by making the double bass man straddle his instru ment. Trombones, ophicleides and ket tledrums just pack away like boxes in a n'st, and .Nmsa's only pot to say a word and my fortune's made in musical wheels. ' ' "Anything else?" "There's the literary wheel got the points from a Brooklyn librarian. The book or the magazine is hld in place just this side of the ram's horn, and these is an automatic concern that turns over the leaves at the exact time. With that arrangement the publishers will have no further reason to complain that txxjks are now a drug on the market. Then there is tho sportsman's wheel. He slings his double barrel right under him, and there's a rest if he's a pot hunter, and a place for 50 rounds of ammunition, and a crib for a pointer or setter, as the case may be, and a game bag and a basket for holding dog biscuit for a week. A little, variation in the sportsman's bike and you have the angler's rig, down to his green painted hamper with the bait in it. The drummer's wheel took a lot of sabe. I don't care what kind of samples the inan carries tea pots or pig iron it's all aranged for. Don't ask me any more questions, for I'm on the milkmaid's wheel now. You couldn't catch on, I am afraid, not be ing of an ingenious turn of mind. Well, it's about this, and don't you give me away: She just scorches around her cows, and the milking stool is adjust able. A patent attachment to a cy cloidal sprocket works the exhaust and strips the last drop from the cow's ud der. Then, when the tin bucket that the chain carries along is filled, all she has to do is to zip around to another cow, and that works the churner, and so by the time she is through with tho very last Sukie there is your butter, and the cyclometer tells you how much butter you have to a pound. I'm working out a refrigerating principle now as a part of that wheel so as to keep tfie butter cool and fresh. That wheel is going to break the co-operative dairy dusiness. Don't ask me no more silly questions. See?" New York Times. Former Slave Market, Constantinople. On benches so placed as to command a good view were the buyers, coarse looking Turks, whose calm, searching gaze seemed to take in every detail. The merchant conducting the sale stood before them, talking and gesticulating with great vehemence. He turned to one of the x w which was filled with young CircasStn women, most of whom were very handsome. They were seated close together on the ground in an atti tude of listless despondency, their white garments flowing around them, and, as they gazed up at me with their sad, dark eyes, I felt painfully how they must envy the free and happy stranger who came to look on them in their in famy and misery. The slave trader came forwird, fol lowed by a phlegmatic looking Turk, and, seizing one of the women by the arm, forced her to stand up before this man, who, it appeared, wished to buy her. He proceeded to inspect her, very much in the same manner as he might have examined a horse or a dog, and his decision was unfavorable. He turned away with a contemptuous movement of the head, and the slave merchant, in a rage, thrust back the unfortunate girl, who sank down trembling among her companions in captivity. This scene was as much as we could stand, and we left the place hurriedly at once. It is well indeed that such sights can be wit nessed no more, at least in Europe. Blackwood's Magazine, Blackburn and Blair. They tell a good story in Washington on Joe Blackburn. He had an exciting argument in a senatorial cloakroom at Washington several years ago as to the relative value of brandy and whisky as man's greatest boon. In the midst of the argument the stoical prohibition Senator Blair of New Hampshire en tered the room. Forgetting the well known total abstinence tendencies of the New Englander, Senator Blackburn appealed to him to settle the dispute. "I do not know the difference between whisky and brandy, " replied Senator Blair, with a face as passive as a Jap anese doll. After Blair had departed Blackburn's eyes actually moistened with sympathy as he shook his head eadly and said : "Poor old man! His gtoiuach must be in awful shape." New York Tribune. Dncks and Drakes. A man who wrote to Forest and Stream awhile ago said that SO per cent of the ducks he had killed were drakes four drakes to one female and he wanted to know the reason why. Others promptly said they had observed similar preponderance of drakes, and also want ed to know why. One man told how he had seen one female duck chased by four or five males. Ho had killed 45 in a spring day's shooting, and of them only 9 were females. Thus far no explanation has been given of the matter. Dtagnoat. "Uncle Dick, what's a delusion?"
