ip.d iitre manly tnan he ever felt. I am a
builder of men.
I can take any weak, puny man and make
him feel like a Handow. Of course, I can't
make a Hercules of a man who was never
intended by nature to be strong and husky.
I don t mean that.
But I can take a man who started with a
fair constitution and before it got fully de
veloped began tearing it down. That fellow
is weak-nerved, slow. poky, lacking in vim,
ambition and self-confidence. I can make a
man of him in three months so that his own
friends won't know him.
I want you to read this book and learn the
truth about my arguments. If you are not

"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."
The neat folder which contains Dr. Gofer's letter contains also
a summary of weather conditions in Horolulu during the year 1905,
the data being certified to have been compiled at the local office
of the U. S. Weather Bureau, under charge of Alex McC. Ashley,
Section Director.

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. It was

this map the various saloons, cold drink shops, restaurants, hotels, j city and especially to the people who dwell in Palama. This re-

discussion of the life of the various peoples, finally taking up the
crucial question of how they spend their leisure time. 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. N ""DOREMUS SCUDDER.
