A 24- hoot Crafc-Bulldlns It Him-self-WUI Co to anlla-He Has a Record. lCcrresponden P. C. A.) MILWAUKEE. Feb. 13. Cap.aln Adolph Freitsch, the Mi wank navi gator, st art oil today on a 10.1'uO mile journey 3.000 by rail and T.OoO acres. tho stormy Pacific in a 21-foot sail boat. e has found a backer for h!s venture, and the contract wjh clcd yesterday afternoon a: Chicago. A. It. Dremer. V to 21 I-a Sail 5:.. Chicago, will baciv the Mllvauk na vigator. The agreement on th part of Freitsch is that he U to build h'.s own boat within twenty-four days af:r reaching San Francisco, and thrc: he will reach Honolulu In twenty-one days sailing from the Golden (late, and will reach Manila in forty-two days from the time he leaves Honolulu. Tlic vessel will be named the Coke, will be twenty-four feet on the water line, Mat bottomed, with a heavy ccn:crboard. Capt. Freitsch says that if hU voy age to Manila i3 successful, as he hopes it will be, he may continue on around tno Cape of Good Hope, and so make the trip back across tue Atlantic, thin circumnavigating tho g!ol a fw: which would be without a piral! un der such conditions. Capt. Freitsch is a .Milwaukcean who has made for himself by thr perform ance of similar feats to the one which he is now about to attempt a great name. In 1S91 he sailed across the At lantic in a forty-foot schooner called the Nina, performing thV trip alone. It took 'him just thirty-four days and throe hours to make r.,000 miles from Sandy Hook light to Teereght. nml the performance attracted -world-wide at tentlon at tho time. I-ater he made two trips across Iake Michigan from Milwaukee to the East shore and re turn during the stormy fall weather in a skift rigged with a sail. He was almost given up for lost on his return trip, as he was much longer in making the crossing than was expected. 'A later attempt to sail down the Mississippi in a small schooner built by himself in this city was abandoned. and since that time tho captain has been planning other ventures, appar ently only satisfied "when he U risk Ing his life in some manner. A STATE HOTEL. 1 The Peculiar Arrangement of a Hon?' in the South. ' (Chicago Times-Herald.) "I ran across one of the queerest ho tels in the world not long ago." said a drummer just In from a trip. "I don't care -to advertise the establish ment gratuitously, so suffice It to say. It's situated in a city made by nearly all traveling men out of New Or leans, and is run by an eccentric old chap who has named his rooms after states, Instead of given them num bers. The effect is somewhat start ling. I went there first to inquire for a friend. Yes. he's in Maine, replied the clerk, when I mentioned the name. 'But he isn't in Maine,' I protested. 'for 1 happen to know he's right here in this hotel.' Then he explained While I was Handing t!i:rt waiting, the side talk at ;he desk was enough to make a man crazy. Gonl In Mas sachusetts is kicking, sir. said a boll boy; 'claims dat feller in' Utah is a'.l de time'playiu re "coniian at nights. 'Put him la Montana.' replied the clerk. 'No towels in North Dakota,' said a chambermaid, aud that fat man in 1 iorida wants ;o b changed to Vermont. My frieud came down looking very rocky. He said he'd been sitting in a little poker game in Khole Island the night before and woke up in California. Didn't know how the dickens he got there. The place Inter ested me. and I could hardly tear my self away. My friend assured me that it was run strictly according to state traditions. He was in Maine at first, bait they refused to send any beer to his room on account of the prohibi tion law, so he had them change him aross the hall to Kentucky, and now he likes it so well he has concluded to stay indefinitely." Oratorio Evening. Next Thursday evening at S o'clock the Oratorio Concert will be given in the Kaumakapili church. Three num bers from the works of the great mas ters will be playeil .by the Amateur Or chestra "with the large organ. Two numbers on the program will b tilled by Mrs. Geo. V. .Macfarlane whose fine singing is sure to be a very h ad ing attraction. There will also. In? a ladies trio, violin and violoncello so los, tenor solos, and a Hawaiian cho rus. The concert Is for the benefit of the Kaumakapili church funds, anc' tickets now on sa!e are fixed at DC cents. IT WAS COSTLY Expensive Experiment in Ship Construction.

The use of the Vacuum Oils is increasing in all the markets of the world The explanation of this is no doubt in part due to the fact that the Vacuum Oil Com pany uses petroleum frcm wells which show no traces of asphaltum.
