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 New Lij;ht.
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.
