Honolulu, giveTi - to 'the - Associated

first interview of its .kind ever pub

by 33r. A. L. Dean audi his 'confreres
of the University, or itawaii, and ad

rector of the investigation station
Dr.,. F. B. Trottef, president of the
Territorial Board of Health and their
! Health officials with having arrested
the., disease in three years, five
months and seven days of treatment.
Today Mr, :Blaisdell - is living at
her home here, going in and out
among' her friends and staking up
the threads of a busy life , which
were' cut when the malady forced
her "without the camp."
Her manner is cheerful, almost vi
vacious: her mental energy unusually
keen; her movements quick jand de
.cisiTe as those of a person in per-
lect neaitn; ana tne sum 01 ner nana
as ithe Associated Press representa

smooth as a baby's. ..
Only.:"on8 apparent ,111 effect of the
disease' remains in the occasionaT
twitching of one eye. There the. lepro
sy bacilli destroyed a nerve before
the treatment took effect.
Mrs. Blaisdell is a full-blooded Ha
waiian, last of a long line of "priest
esses of the flame" in the old Hawaiian
temple worship. Before she entered
the Kalihl institution for ' treatment
she - organized the Daughters and
Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, one of
the strongest or tne .Hawaiian soci
eties In the islands. She speaks Eng
lish fluently, also Hawaiian and. .her
information on world affairs is far
above the average.
"My grandmother told me to ob
serve our., old 'tabus' i (rules of con-
duct) or would be stricken with le
. prosy," aaldj. this .daughter ? of arace
that believed in -'Divfhe Trinity 8,000
years ago and taught the power of
mind over matter centuries before
the Christian era. "I did not heed
her warning and in 1895 a red. burn
ing spot on my right cheek announc
, ed that my punishment had come. It
'reappeared off and on but not in ag
gravated, form until 1908.
"From then orl I became -worse.
'Eruptions-,' as we call them, appear
ed every three months. My face and
other parts of my body and limbs
became swollen and inflamed during
these periods. . - .

each marking a step of progress In
the manner of refining and adminis
tering the curative essence of chaul
moogra oil.
Uuring the early stages of the
work at Kalihi chaulmoogra oil was
hard to take," Mrs. Blaisdell contin
ued, describing the remedy. "At pre
sent an injection is administered once
a week,, while theremedy is taken
internally three times a week.

had passed. This was hard to do for
we elt that we were losing time
and some of .us disobeyed. I did so,
once, and continued taking thp cap
sules during an eruption. Before 1
was on the. road - to recovery again
my recklessness had cost me the joint
of dne t,oe."
Hope of recovery, even in the leper
colony, was to be expected but it was
a revelation o learn from ithis wom
an that cheerfulness, laughter and
joy of living were the rule, rather
than the exception among the 100
odd patients at Kalihi.
"We had our afternoon teas,' our
amateur theatricals, and, of course,
is a community whose great majority
was Hawaiians, our musicales. If new
awnings were needed for the build
ings, the board of health furnished
the material and we did the sewing.
Cooperation.' was the keystone of the
station's activities-, for we knew that
the 'territory's funds were heavily
taxed to meet - the ' expense of our
treatment. .
"Our only dread was that we would

However, nowadays, patients never,
or very ..infrequently; are sent to
Molokai. ! do not think that any of
those at Kalihi wi,ll. ever go there;
the chaulfnopiga' oil has achieved such
wonderful results.
"Thirty of the Kalihi patients were
released on parole some time before I
came out, . alsoyoi jiarole,.-. and not
one has been returned to the station
6n account of recurrence of the dis
ease. Seventy-eight patients in all
have been released on parole within
the year.'
Leprosy came to Hawaii about
1840, said Mrs.' Blaisdell, its first ap
pearance here being in a Chinese, Ig
norant of the disease tre Hawaiians
of that day failed to Hake precautions
against it until it was too late and to
day the majority of - cases is among
the members of 'that fine old race
that once ruled, supreme in the is
lands. Chaulmoogra oil is extracted from
the nuts of the chaulmoogra tree, a
native of Barman .and other Asiatic
countries. In the station grounds at
Kalihi is a young chaulmoogra -tree,
planted and cared for by the patients
the emblem of their home. .
Before her releasei-"snipsV 1 were
taken from Mrs. Jjjaisdell's kin for
bacteriological investigation she had
36 snips taken during her treatment.
The result of the last official examin
ation and a- special examination tak
en at her own request is contained
in the following statement given Mrs.

have enough clothing, fuel, tools,

a start in reclaiming their waste land
