Use Novelty Mills EXCELLENT FLOOR QA12F0BNIA FEED 00., Agtnta "The element of charm, which enters so potently into all things Hawaiian, makes even the climate conditions almost impossible of description. "Indeed ones lives so comfortably here that the character of the climate is practically never thought of, in the same way that a sound man lives oblivious to his liver. A person newly arrived from the lands where snows and sunstrokes prevail could give a more convincing description of our days and nights than one who through sheer content lias lost all sense of perspective. "The weather statistics tell the truth but hardly the whole truth. They show, and with all accuracy, a rather high rainfall, yet the layman, either because our rains usually occur at night or else because he usually sees them as 'liquid sunshine,' would in variably pronounce the climate as the dry marine variety.' The temperature, humidity and rainfall varies widely with the exposure and elevation selected as the point of observation. Therefore so long as it is possible to run by automobile over good roads in a few hours from the humid warmth of the coast to the dry cold of the highlands, so long will the opinions of men differ as to the climate taken as a whole. ''As Honolulu is the natural center and distributing point, one forms his impressions from local climate conditions. It may be said in general that the climate is of the semi-tropical variety in which the mean extremes are never reached. "The fair days are no warmer, nor the rainy ones more disagree able than those prevailing during the month of June in New York City, and withal there is the certainty that these conditions will obtain throughout the whole year. While a great many men dress just as they do in the eastern states, the large majority of the popu lation enjoy the privilege not to say the luxury of being comfort able in white every day in the year. "Surf bathing and aquatic sports, pleasures which are known to comparatively so few people on the mainland, are indulged in particularly by children in January and July alike. In this latitude and longitude such conditions it is needless to say are unique and would be impossible were is not for the trade winds which keep intact health, comfort and commerce and make out of door sports a part of the daily routine. As every one may live constantly in the open air, the pleasures of those in good health are shared by health seekers. The medical 'don'ts' which are necessary in so many really good climates are unknown here. Therefore the convales cent in Hawaii has not the identity which is so often his, and which proves not infrequently a barrier to rapid recovery from ailment. Unlike some climates it is not good for every disease to which the human economy is liable. For example persons suffering from pul monary tuberculosis will usually thrive far better in Colorado than here. On the other hand patients suffering from nervous com plaints, kidney disease, etc., are justified in coming here from al most any part of the world. In short, I believe the influences in Hawaii offer the least resistance to bodily well being of any of the well-known health resorts of the world. Even if the meteorological findings are similar in other places, it is doubtful whether they make their impress upon the people as they do here. "This climate breeds happiness and laughter, a natural and ap propriate reflection of the sunlight, rainbows and purple hills, and for those who enjoy such things there's Hawaii."

S. Weather Bureau, under charge of Alex McC. Ashley, Section Director. 0 MR.

Box 59. 910 Prospect Street, Honolulu, T. II., Jan. 19, 1906. Editor Advertiser: Last night the Thursday Club at the Y. M. C. A. listened to such a remarkable address by Mr. James A. Rath of Palama, that it occurs to me to beg the use of your columns : lor a word with reference thereto. The title of the lecture was "How the Other Half Lives," and it is no exaggeration to say that the disclosures made were of unusual timeliness and importance to ! all our citizens. Trained under the able corps of social scientists J in the Springfield school, Mr. Rath has taken up the study of Pa-j ama on the line made famous by Charles Booth in his epochal i volumes "Life and Labor of the People of London." This investi gation has been pursued at odd times when the stress of work has permitted and is hardly more than begun. Yet the facts already ascertained form a most valuable contribution to the stock of ma terial available to students of social conditions in this complex com munity. The first thing that attracted the attention of the audience was a social map of the entire district showing in colors the abodes of j the way in which the portion ot the town aiki.ci ot Amiatni triTi1 nf th several nationalities therein T1ni at n p-lnnre ! stream nrevc nnon Palama for its own darker pleasures.

This led to a most discriminating exposition of the influence of the various recreational and lounging centers of the entire district. The in fluence exerted upon the people by each group was carefully set forth. Of course, -Mr. Rath did not use the Advertiser s headline that "the devil owns the town." The black spots were not painted anv other color nor were the bright places toned down. In fact the address glowed with optimistic hope and paid a warm tribute to the Hawaiians in Talama who are fighting for better things. The drink evil, gambling and social vice were not glossed over. Perhaps the saddest part of the story was that which dealt with II is to be rep-retted that a larjre number of our business men could no have heard this address, one effect of which was to cause all who had this privilege to rejoice that so resourceful and devoted a social worker lives in the very center of this district. In fact the so-called Palama Chapel which occupies the strategic spot in this the storm center of our city's social problem is a goo.! deal of a misnomer. It is in reality a modern social settlement of the highest type and as soon as our financial leaders realize how it holds the key to the situation, in what excellent hpnds it is and how splendidly it is helping to solve the problem whic it faces, there will be no trouble in enlarging and equipping it to 1o the wide work demanded.
