"Well, if you get more out of It In

led by n fourteen-year-old schoolgirl,
sought to fling themselves Into the boil-
ing lava of Kllahea crater on the re-
cent anniversary of King Kamehameha
the Great. *Bhe fanatics were attempt-
ing to make a human sacrifice to Pele,
the goddess of lire. Their plans were
frustrated when they fell exhausted
on the mountainsides after the long
Journey toward the volcano.
The pilgrimage was started from
Hookena, Hawaii, by old men and
women, children and even infants In
arms, all unprovided with food and wa-
ter and scantily clad. The blazing suu
of the lava-encrusted slopes overcame
the pilgrims after a day and a night
of continuous traveling, and they were
found by A. R. (rasper, who operates
an automobile stage around the island
from Hilo to ICona.

Word to Subscribers
In consolidating the Norman
weekly newspapers a thousand and j
one details have to be worked out,
and we have not yet "struck our
gait" in getting out such a paper as
we desire. We trust our subscrib-
ers will bear with us for a short ;
time, and we'll then give them .a
weekly paper of which they will be i
proud. We hope to be able to get
out twelve pages next week, end i.Id i
to that number from week Lo week j
as business justifies.
As per announcement in this issue
the Carey, Lombard Lumber company
will give five per cent premium on
Liberty Bonds, thus demonstrating its
thorough confidence in the country
and its earnest and true loyalty and
patriotism. In addition to this, the
company has subscribed for a very
large amount of the bonds, and every
one of their employes has gone his
limit, feeling and knowing that in
this way they can best contribute to
the success of our arms and the care
of our soldiers. These are the days
when America expects every man
and every interest to do its full duty,
and this is one way in whick this
great company is demonstrating its
earnest desire to do that duty.
Appreciation is due the company
for its true Americanism, and we
trust it will have to pay out a goodly
sum on these premiums. Read the
