To health and strength will be found and made if you invest in a
WHITELY EXERCISER. In order to keep up a healthy
circulation it is not necessary to strain the muscles as is done in
heavy gymnastics. The exercises necessary for harmonious develop
ment of the muscular system also call into action and develop the In
ternal organs and other structures; hence the rapid and permanent
cure of digestive troubles. The WHITELY EXERCISER will produce
health and strength; it is simple, inexpensive and the only practical
form of athletics for busy people.

Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur
chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We
are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They
are three feet high and very thick. Your plow
turns them completely under, at the same time
plowing the land fourteen inches deep.
I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft
for the same quantity and depth of work is as
6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same
work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it
takes only 6, and they are less tired at night.
Please send me another plow by first schooner
leaving for this.
You are at liberty to us,e this in any way you
may see fit. Yours truly,
A. LIDGATE.

Half a dozen dignified Chinese filed
into the Hobron Drug Company's store
last evening and asked for the Boj-s in

They looked over the names and

Mr. Hough, of the Hobron Drug
Company engaged the visitors in con
versation. They had read in the Ad
vertiser and had heard from friends
of what was going on in anticipation
of the visit of troops of the United
States to Honolulu. The Chinese
were surprised to learn that they would
get their money back if the soldiers
were not entertained. All of the Chi
nese subscribers agreed with Ahin,
Ahlo and Wong Kwai in expressing
the hope that the "American soldiers
would come." It was explained that
the Chinese subscribers, while in
company socially, had talked of the
enterprise pf the citizens and had come
to the conclusion that the Chinese col
ony should not remain in the back
ground in the matter.
Subscriptions to the fund have come
in without stmt and there has been
no canvass. There are sixty-one names
on the list and the total amount pledg
ed is $6,820.50. Much more will be
iimn tndav it rnie-ht narain be stated
that the finance committee will leave
the list at Hobron's till after the ar
rival of the Mariposa.

The New Pastor.
At S o'clock this evening there will
be a business meeting of the congre
gation of Central Union Church. The
committee calling a new pastor will
report and there will be a vote on the
name submitted. The candidate is
selected from a list of thirty and is
believed to be "just the man for the
place." The committee which has
made the search consists of Associate
Justice Frear. Prof. Wr. D. Alexander
and W. A. Bowen. Mr. Bowen is now
abroad. It is expected that there will
be a very large attendance for the
meeting this evening.
RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING.
The supply of the "Celebrated Seat
tle Bock Beer" is rapidly disappearing
in town. The lovers of this nutri
tious spring beverage can obtain it for
a limited time at the Criterion Saloon.
as well. The cars for the railway are
now being constructed.
Manager George Weight of Kahuku,
has been greatly encouraged .by the
success of the Waianae plant. He
will soon begin tunnelling the moun
tains back of Kahuku for power water.
Manager Theodore Hoffman, of the
Hawaiian Electric Light Company, put
in the plants, both at Waianae and
Olowalu.
Of the installation last week of a
water wheel at Hilo, the Tribune says:
The new Pelton water wheel for the
electric light works is now in place
and running like clock work. It is an
lS-foot wheel and is the second largest
Pelton wheel in the world. This wheel
will be used for the power of the ice
plant. The lighting department will
be hereafter run separately and the
old wheel will be used for this. Tho
pumping machinery is propelled by
still another, making in all three water
wheels of various sizes used at this
plant.
WHOOPING COUGH.
I had a little boy who was nearly
dead from an attack of whooping
cough. My neighbors recommended
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I did
not think that any medicine would help
him, but after giving him a few doses
of that remedy I noticed an improve
ment, and one bottle cured him entire
ly. It is the best cough medicine I
ever had in the house. J. L. Moore,
