Several Notable Features. Koa Unique Parlor. Senator 11. P. Baldwin, whose mate- 1 rial interests in the Island?, prominence as a public man and well known philan thropies make him one of the foremost personalities of this country, is to have a Honolulu residence. His plantation holdings nnuer his own direction are cn Maui and Kauai, where he has neat homes. Mr. Baldwin will not be "the next" Hawaiian planter to "build a mansion in Oakland." He has shown a preference for Honolulu. The plans are nearing completion in the offices of Ripley & Dickey, the architects in the Safe Deposit Building, Fort street. The structure which will, when finished, perhaps rank as the finest residence here, will be in the Makiki district, the home locality which has been built up so rapidly during the past year. Mr. Baldwin desires elevation and view and will have both. His lot is on the Ewa side iof that of Jos. A. Gil man, whose place is so well known cn account of being the pioneer of hill side homes. The ground for the new place has a frontage of 300 feet, is 400 feet at the back and has a uniform depth of 200 feet. It is at the head of Kewalo street. The view commanded includes Hcnohvlu and harbor, Wai kiki and Diamond Head, the Pearl Lochs territory and the "Waianae moun tains and the ocean to the horizon. Material for the house will be native stone and shingles. The area to be covered is 75x104 and the height will be two stories with a large and airy attic. In the plans are many striking features. Mr. Baldwin has traveled widely and with the idea of a model horn: for ihimself has been a close ob server of residence contour and (let" "Is. Ripley & Dickey, with so liberal a patron, have set out to supply something beautiful and at the same time in every way practical and com fortable. The large hallway will have walls and ceiling of polished koa and on the winding stairway will be an especial showing of the beauty of the glossy native wood. The parlor will be elliptical in shape, will be finished in white and will be 17x25 feet. It will be of colonial de sign, with covered ceiling and between the parlor and lanai will be bent plate glass sliding doers. The dining room will be finished in koa. It will be 1Gx24 feet and oil the end of the dining room will be the 3nservatory. Between tnese two rooms will be square columns and a grill work of Arabian detail. The conserva tory, three steps lower than the dining hall, will be 17x12 and will have a floor of marble mosaics, with a pool in the center. On the ground floor is also the liv ing room, 15x21 and off that a large lanai, with the Waikiki and Diamond Head view. In the living room will be a recess for plants and on either side of this recess book cases. Two chambers and a sewing room finish the list of large compartments on the ground floor. There is a back varanda and one L has the kitchen, while the other has the bath room. There is also to be a bath room on the second floor. Upstairs there are to be three 'large chambers and an office. One of these hambers will be 16T-x2C with an alcove 9x10. The front elevation discloses for the upper floor a loggia with four columns and having a ceiling formed by a bar rel vault which pierces the front gable back to the house wall. On either side of the loggia are open balconies with the view grander if possible than from below. The attic will be 34x50, will have loggiars in the Waikiki and Ewa gables and air from four sides. This building will resemble, the architects say, a chateau and was de signed particularly with view to loca tion. It will be on the upper terrace. On the second terrace will be winding drives. There will he suitable stables on the premises. Stephen Desha. Rev. 3. L. Desha has returned from his Kona trip. He has not yet fully re covered from the blood poisoning caus ed by injuring his hand with a fish bone. He barely escaped the necessity of an amputation. Hilo Tribune. DIi:i ABOARD SHIP.

Ltd., are distributing locally, copies of a new folder issued by the Pacific Mail S. S. Co. The print is one of the neatest and most artistic things of the sort ever seen here. The first page is an excellent specimen of the printer's handicraft and the de signer's originality and taste. The folder gives several pages to Honolulu, recommending highly the Islands for scenic beauty and health giving. "A word to the wise is sufficient" and a word from the wise should be suffi cient, but you ask, who are the wise? Those who know. The oft repeated ex perience of trustworthy persons may be taken for knowledge. Mr. W. M. Terry says Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy gives better satisfaction than any other in the market. He has been in the drug business at Elkton, Ky., for 12 years; has sold hundreds of bottles of this remedy and nearly all other cough medicines manufactured, which shows conclusively that Chamberlain's is the most satisfactory to the people, and ia the best.
