BI ART'S, 404 FORT STREET. 50 EMPTY HOMES (Continued Irom First Page.) his command of the native language va3 a valuable man during the height of the excitement. At King street where it is entered by Keeaumoku there was on the after noon of the flocd a water depth, of frcm two to three feet. The boys at the X. G. II. barracks in the Executive building and the fire men were anxiously awaiting call for rescue work en Thursday. Two native women taken frcm a house in Kamanuwai carried from their home a small black kitten each. They left, everything else. Col. Geo. McLeod was out in the rain looking after his group of new cottages on Vineyard street. They were not touched by the flood rush. One man in Kaumakapili constructed raft of two mattresses, piled some furniture on it and then discovered that the scheme was quite a success as a failure. Hundreds upon hundreds of people from all parts of the town visited the stream yesterday and went into the districts that the day before, had been under water. Chas. S. Desky was warmly thanked for his generosity in supplying cloth ing to native men and women who had "nothing to wear" after the first half hour of the flood. The Advertiser flood edition was be ing sold on the streets up to dark last evening. It 'had quite a run late in the afternoon. Copies of the Gazette with all of the flood news can be had at this office. iWm. Cunningham tells of flood adven tures while hunting in Ewa district. He and others have waited for from half an hour to half a day in season for a stream to get into its banks again after a heavy rain. In back of Kaumakapili church there is a small shed of a house that is a favorite resort for the opium smokers that use the drug by special license. The little shack was pretty well wrecked by the flood. Carpenters rushed abroad early yes terday to do outdoor work for which customers had been waiting from a fortnight to a month. Every carpen ter in town can work almost indefinite ly now if the weather will permit. Capt. Robert Parker was hoarse yes tefday in consequence of shouting or ders to boatmen and others during the flood. None of those who engaged in rescue work suffered to amount to anything from the drenchings they re ceived. CVIessrs. Marks and Saunders, the cir cus people in town had a force of men at work early yesterday morning on the lot near the fish market leased for the tents. The place is clear again and will be in order against the return of Mr. Willison from Hawaii and Maui. This paper's suggestion that Wm. Wells, the hero of the flood day deserv ed a testimonial was promptly accept ed. Money is being collected and the brave young sailor of t'he Rithet will be given a medal or watch and a purse. A number of the people called at the vessel yesterday to shake the hand of Wells. With all the praise received he remains modest . Standard Patterns. L. B. Kerr has been appointed agent for the Islands for the Standard paper patterns, known the world over, and the Designer, a publication for ladies. Mr. Kerr is ready to supply orders for either.

The exhibition of lighting by acety lene gas continues to attract attention in the store room at the corner of Ho tel and Union streets. A number of cit izens have become quite interested in the new illuminant and several will try it. The handling of the small plant required has been explained to scores of people. In the United States the gas has been on the market several years. From the amount of subdued whistl ing and "Ku-es" in the House during the reading of the appropriation bill for salaries and pay rolls yesterday, it would seem that the members ex pect to do quite a little artistic carving before long. HAWAIIAN RELIEF SOCIETY. Noble Practical Work Is Being Done-No "Idle Funds It is stated on. the authority cf a prominent member of the Hawaiian Relief Society, that the money left from the fund established during the cholera epidemic of has not been lying idle without drawing interest. On the contrary the fact is that ever since the epidemic there have ben na tive families supported and cared for. The number of families for the last six months has been 42, at. an expenditure for food alone of about $o or $2.03 per family per month. Among those cared for the majority earn a small pittance, but there are some old people who are unable to work, who should really be cared for at the Lunalilo Home. The fund being very small, the great est care is exercised by the visiting committee to ascertain whether or not there is real want, before recommenda tions are made to the society for assist ance. Xo money is given, arrangements having been made with the Metropoli tan Meat Company and with various poi shops to supply meat, fish and poi at exceedingly low rates to the society, which issues tickets to the needy and receives its bills monthly for supplies furnished. The funds of the society have been kept invested as much as possible at interest, but the principal is rapidly disappearing, under the demands upon it. The contributions of Bishop & Co., $100; I.-I. S. N. Co., $100 and F. A Schaefer & Co., $50 are gratefully acknowledged by the society, which will do all it can to relieve those suffer ing from the flood. A Full Line Of all descriptions of carriages came to Honolulu by the Zealandia. Everything about them is "fine," even to prices, and anyone who de sires a real good rig at a fair price will do well to call and look them over at Nos. 520 and 522 Fort street (G. Sohu man's). In the United States the average cubic capacity of the lungs of a person weighing 140 pounds is 224 cubic inches. A man can live 40 days with out food, three days without water, but only five minutes without air. The relative importance cf these three things is thus plainly illustrated. If examinations should be made cf the size, capacity and power of the lungs of people who live to an advanced age it would be found that lung capa city in. proportion to weight is the greatest factor in producing long life. Willison's circus will open on the lot near the fish market next Satur day. Nice eggs those are that you get for 8 cents a dozen ! They might, however, make good chickens. Maybe, too, those alum bak ing powders are good for some thing not good for the stom ach, though. A Schilling & Company Saa hlancisco Rugby Football Match.
