Tourists who have found pleasure in tossing nickels, dimes and even coins of larger denominations into the harbor waters at Honolulu from the decks of incoming passenger steamers for the enjoyment of watching half-naked Hawaiian boys dive for them inav h? *nr. prised to learn that not a tithe of them were caught by the deft little water dogs and that after many years they formed a part of the new-made lands near the railway wharf. The harbor has yielded up much of the money that has been sent to the bottom in this manner through the medium of the big suction dredger which is now at work. The mud and silt on the harbor bottom is sucked up through pipes into the dredger and is again forced through a long chain of pipes to the tide-water lands near the railway wharves, where it is spread out over a large area. Natives discovered some time ago that this pipe is depositing *1? J! ' * ' iuMio iii<iii uruinary naroor silt Coins of all metals, except gold, have poured out of the mouth of the pipe line and many Hawaiians have profited by their long vigil there. , The captain of the dredger says that for some time past his men have known of the treasure thus being brought up from the harbor, and enorts were made to stop the silver flow upon the dredger before it had a chance to get into the outflow pipe. A box was constructed and into this the majority of the coins ; sucked up have dropped and 1 ire easily gotten out. It is seldom that an opening of the box lias not yielded up a handful of 1 nickels, dimes and dollars of several nations. Some coins are comparatively now, while others are more than 200 years old. A Spanish coin dated 1SG5 was found. Another, picked up recently by Capt. Barker, bears the inscription, "Libra por la Constitution, Bolivia Kepublica, Boliviana, 1827." A gentleman who has known i)f this silver mine stated that it is probable the deposit of coins j began during the whaling days,' r* >-< r* . , when no doubt many of the oldtime coins were dropped overhoard by sailors merely for the intjoyiiit iil ot watching natives j [live after them.

SVV1.HMKltS' CUAMIV It is not Very Deimerotis it the Swimmer will Keep Cool. From Outing for August. If swimmers could be trained to keep cool under all circumstance there would bo comparatively little drowning among bathers and summer pleasure seekers Cramp is usually as signed as the cause when some good swimmer drowns. But cramp ought in reality to be nothing serious.Usuallyit affects only an arm or a leg, or, may be, only a hand or foot. Any moderately good swimmer can keep afloat with one arm. or even without the use of that; yet good swimmers are drowning every week as a result of cramp. If such fatalities were analyzed they would be more properly classed as drownings from fright and loss [of nerve. This comes from the fact that every one is thought in childhood to fear the water, and comes as a grown man and a swimmer to fear cramp. The average opinion is that the man who is attacked when swimming in deep watter is as good as drowned. Therefore, when a swimmer feels a leg or arm begiu t> cramp he is frightened, in cases, entirely out of his wits, lie loses his head, begins to splash and paw and struggle and then goes down. What the swimmer should remember is that he can keep affloat with very, very little effort if he will turn 011 his back and keep his chest inflated. It is the simple matter of floating, which ev?ry swimmer knows and finds very easy. If the swimmer will keep cool and float the cramping limp will frequently relax after a little and he will find himself as well as evjr.

From Washington they said they had gone to Richmond, where the young man had secured employment as a conductor on a trolley car. Then came a strike and the husband lost his position. II is lungs were not strong and they decided that he would be better oil' at Dayton, and particularly as there did not seem to be any way of making a living for himself and wife in Richmond, whereas he is confident of securing employment in Dayton.
