When needing anything in any of the above lines try E. O.

Pacific H Remington S WHAT IS ITt A simple, compact, and durable machine, which successfully performs the work of the pen, with a tremendous saving of time and exertion. WHAT WILL IT DO? It produces, with speed and certainty, in clearly legible printed characters, one or many copies of any kind of writing, excepting such as must be done in books. TO WHOM IS IT USEFUL? To every one who has writing to do. In business circles its desirability is assured. Lawyers and journalists cannot do without it. Professional and scientific men realize its worth to them. The author and thinker find it invaluable. It con serves the most potent kind of energy that of the brain by reducing to a minimum the mechanical labor of writing, and distributing it among all the fingers of both hands. Writer's cramp disappears where it is used. It presents the printed appearance of rhe work to the mind at once. WHO CAN OPERATE IT? Any one of ordinary intelligence. A very few trials enable any one to write upon it readily. Thereafter it is only a mat ter of practice. H. HACKFELD & Co., Ltd SOLE AGENTS. R OBERT Engineer. Importer 212 QUEEN ST.

New Illusion and Mind Reading. Mile Edmunda-Dante and a "Real" Sprltualist. Dante, the conjurer, had at the Opera House on Saturday evening, the best audience of his Honolulu season. Orchestra, dress circle, balcony and gallery were crowded and a good many of those in the down stairs sec tions were smartly dressed. The great magician was at his very best and had an audience that was in full sympathy with him. He did new sleight of hand work and presented for the first time here some of his original illusions. In the latter Mile. Edmunda was pro minent. This lady, the wife of the star of the company, is a most valuable assistant to Dante and Frank Eliason is an able lieutenant to his 'black are brother. Dante, by the way is a Salt Lake City "boy." En tour in the States he has been a great success everywhere since he took to traveling. The home ven ture that made him talked of all over the country was a clear cut victory over a "spiritualist" at Salt Lake. The cabinet man advertised that he had found the connecting link be tween the two worlds and "courted in vestigation." Dante didn't like the idea of a man coming to his town and claiming to have crossed the "dividing line." The "defi" was accepted by the town man and night after night Dante duplicated and explained the "spirit manfestations" of the visitor. The invador was driven from the field and even those who had the very firmest confidence in him had their eyes open ed. "Madame Sans Gene" was the bes thing Saturday night. Mile. Edmunda was placed in an open work cabinet. In full view of the audience the top part of the structure was enclosed. Dante announced that he (would cause disappearance and in less than a min ute the lady came running from the back of the house. The mind reading was another decidedly clever and in teresting experiment. The mid-air cyclist and the "Beg gar's Dream" are as great puzzles as ever. The audience was generous with applause throughout the evening. C03I3IENCEMENT DAY Maunaolu Seminary Graduates Its Pupils on Maui. .MAUI, June IS. The annual com mencement exercises of the Maunaolu Seminary, Makawao, were held on June 15 from 9 to 1:30 o'clock.

During the 11th, Misses Eva and Ethel Smith of Paia were thrown out of a brake on iMaliko gulch road. At the top of the gulch toward Haiku, their horse became frightened at some lumber on a small cart and began to run and kick in a most frightful manner. The young ladies were thrown out at the turn of the road leading down the ravine and were only slight injured. The 3S Wailuku plantation Chinese were acquitted of the charge of de sertion this week. . The barkentine George C. Perkins, Maas captain, arrived from San Fran cisco on the 14th.
