Honolulu, T. II., August 9.— (L'orres pendente of The Associated-Press) — lost for four days in the lnnneuBe inter ef HuleaUuIn tm the :Blaml ot Maul, Hie largest extinct Yolcano in the world, u jiarly of four Honolulu school teachers, Henry A'helk Hazel A'bi 'll, Kdna Ua kridge and. Elizabeth Appleton,'linve at last reached the sea and wifely at Kvanar, Maul, alter terrible hardships.'- 'J'liai the three young women and llieir coiupuuion escaped death In the almost Impi m-tnible jungles through whiih thi'y cut llieir wuy for miles is considered remarkable. They wero completely exhausted when they reeled into I lie itetlleiuent at Kejiuae. The craler of lluleakula has uu elevation ot 10,03 feel uud fin area within the lowering rim of sixteen and one third square miles, At one point it is twenty miles from rim to rim. The flour of the crater is n verlluble wild- erue.^s. Helimlng I lie services of a guide the party entered the crater Willi food for only one day and with little water. On llils they sustained life during tho four days they fought their way to tho sea. (Jolng Into tho crater ihey planned to come out through tho Kau| po gup, a well known trail, but be-! came lost when heavy clouds obscured all landmarks, The Intense cold of tho high altitude.! added to their sufferings during the nights Uiey wero lost, as they hud no Wnukets. Much of the time Ihoy wore •without water and after the first day they tad no food but berries and f/ult, , , They eventually got out of the cra­ ler through the Keanne cut and from there struggled to the coast through the jungle. Old residents declare this tri|i has been made only once before, and then, by an experienced moun tuincer. PUTS COlk BLEA'SE OUT OF THE RACE! _ Nut B. Dial.

HENNEY Writes ot the Boys' Vtm This Neighborhood. THEN IN FRONT TRENCHES For the Second Time—He Tells ot His Surroundings and Work. A letter to the News from Sergeant Kred Hctinoy gives a little touch or the home boys to those who do not got personal letters from timo to time. ThoyKansaj boys at the time tho letter i was written in the middle of August were at the front trenches for the second time. He writes: "Somewhere Over There," Aug, 18. It's 8ttnday, evening and 1 have just had supper—roast beef, stewed corn, bread and coffee. We are not allowed to have any lights at night because the Boche might locale us so 1 must hurry and write this before it's dark. We are* up at the front again. Our "dump," as we call the place where wo have our supply stores and ammunition, is behind the lines far enough to be safe from attack but we are within ahell tire reach and have to be careful and not let tho enemy know •where we are or else some shells might come along and muss it up, which won't bo at all nice, of course. Wo move every few days and every lime we move I have to open up housekeeping in a new spot. This time we are located out in the open Instead of a log cabin as we were the last timo we were at the front. Our "home" Is on the side of a hill under a tent, with a thick pine •forest all about ns. We call it "Hutchinson How" where we are, for there are five tents In a row, each a supply "dump" each in charge of a Hutchinson man. Just next to my "home" ,1s a tent where Sergt. Arthur Atwood of Hutchinson, has the regimental ration "dump." Next to-liim Is the Second Battalion dump, n\ charge of Sergt. Ralph Clark, of Hutchmson; on the other side is the regimental quarter/^ muster's dump, with Corporal " HUM" Wheeler (whose home Is at Pretty Prairie) in charge. And Just below that is the regimental ordnanco dump with Sergt. Dob Xoonan, also ot Hutchinson, in charge. It makes a regular Hutchinson row of business establishments und if you could see the business we handle j-ou W 'ould agree that it's a busy avenue. Concealed In Forest. It's carefully concealed, too. In this pine forestV We' take great care to keep our wagons and trucks hid, and everything camouflaged and concealed as much as is possible. We are living In our store tents, sleeping on the bare'ground. It is cold here nights but we have plenty of blankets and we roll up with a shelter half and four blankets Under us and It makes as soft a- ben OH we have been accustomed to. 1 haven't be"en on a bed since I arrived in this country. The last time I was on a bed or mattress was on board shl.p last May. I don't know ju=t how to act when I get back to civilization again. 1 am writing this seated on an ammunition case for a writing dssk. Testcjday Lieut. Bwlng, Sergt. Clark and myself rode out about 16 kilometers through some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen. We saw the German trenches, anil went through one good sized town "that had been literally blown up by shell fire. One big four-story building was a pitiful mass of junk. There is not a soul left in the town except soldiers. The road at numerous places rau within plain view of the Oerman lines and is carefully camouflaged and hidden so the boche cannot Bee passing trains and troops. We were not observed—we were escorting three wagon loads of ammunition, Inking It to n dump near tho trenches. I greatly enjoyed the ride. Visited Machine Gun Co. We visited the Machine Gun Co., which IK In, the trenches and took dinner with Walter 'Haines, a Hutchinson man who is cook for the M. G. Co. Haines was formerly cook with the Pullman enfe In Hutchinson. Saw Lieut, llarlhold of the II. G. Co. just as he was pulling out to start back to the States." He Is ordered buck to the U. S. and probaWy will be assigned as an Instructor . at ono of the camps. He told me get to go homo but hoped to speedily return, lie Is like everybody else here—anxious to stay here and see it through His home Is In Partridge, I think. I also saw somo of tho Co. H boys. This company is in the first line now and making tx good accounting Willi the boche. You folks at home would be proud to Be** Co. K and the •M C. Co.—our two homo companies— up here in the front line—"giving 'em hell"—wlih machine guns, automatic rifles und the trusty old hand grenades. _ The boys are becoming expert with the grenade—and the lines are so close together here in places that vfe can throw the frrenades H^ht Inlo the bodies' trenches,. Our Kansas boys are Common and Clothes S HOULD be synonomous Naturally the man who makes a life work of the needs of man's appearance, is x in a position to keep one ear to the ground and his eyes on his cus- -tomers needs. Having our 12 stores in large and smaller places. We are in a position to know the needs and demands of the. most conservative to .the most fastidious dresser. We know the changes in style and models perhaps 60 days before the average merchant, having men who do nothing else but follow the markets and its many changes. A larger purchasing power naturally gives us' a cheaper selling price. Getting concessions on larger purchases that the smaller merchant can't get. Talk is cheap—what we want to do is to show you.

Tells of Home Men. It hardly seems natural to refer to Co. IS without mentioning Major l.em mon. He is with another regiment, located however, not far from here. 1 haven't seen him since we have been irp here. Captain Gijy Rcxroad commanding a company In the same regiment. Lieut. lihistaco Smith is also with that regiment. Haven't seen him since we lefts Camp Doniphan. However, 1 understand that ho is located in a town back" of here about u3 kilometers as billeting officer. His knowledge of the French language has given him some prestige and the billeting officer job is generally "regarded as a plum, He Is malting gcod, .1 understand. I would like to run across I,lent. John Schwinn but haven't spotted'him. He's with some other division. , 1 see Capt. Fleemnn now and then, He is with the Y .M, C. A. here and lias charge of Imullng supplies for I ho Y. M. on motor trucks y ilia various "Y" huts. The sajd :fup|ilic.< consist mainly of chocolate and cigarettes which the men buy »s iie was" glad ioi- f,lst 118 ""' J ' comP ' " * s n ° l ,lt °" iiiiupual to see n couple of hundred of men in line taking turns buying when tho "Y" truck arrives -with good things to sell. I haven't seen Capt. MoT/tine since we've been hero but I understand his engineering regiment is not far from where we are. My hand' is so cold I cun hardly write. It feels like snow. The air is real chilly and raw up hero. Yesterday I saw some engineers building a 'new bridge where the boclip had blown ono up, just a' day or two ago by shell fire. . They were of the same regiment as Capt. Me.I^an.e, so I expect he and the Hutchinson engineers are not far off. 1 ran across IJelbert Mitchell of Hutchinson, n tew days ago. He wus regimental sergeant major when .we were at Doniphan, but is now a lieulenant in another regiment, v He was looking fine, He sr.Id ho saw jftistace Smith a few days ago and he was looking "fat and susi-'y." In fait everybody is doing well, looking good and O. K.'' ^Pnly One Casualty. Tho folks at homo need not worry. I never saw a finer or 'better fit bunch of men than Ut© Hutchinson men. They ara all looking good. There have been no casualties in Co. B or Iho Machine Gun Co. The only cas^ ually so. far In Uie Supply Co. w»s <Trnnt Schreffler, whose home is In Wclilta. He la ono of our teamsters and was shot in the band by shrapnel wlien a shell burst near liim. He was! not hurt very 'bacfTiut It brought him u wound chevron, of which he Is very proud. Hvery man who is wounded gets a little gold chevron to be sewn on his lower sleeve. Well I don't particularly care to have one, 1 Jiave issued five wound chevrons so far In our outfit— not a bad record, only five on the battalion. Tells of Funerals, We left four graves up at the front the last time wo were up. One of tho most interesting sights V have ever seen was a funeral party conslsUng ot chaplain and captain of his company who led the way. Then came a limber with the body, covered by a bis flag, and escorted by a firing squad. That was all. Wo baited our train to let them by on the road. In ihe littlo cemetery—where none hut soldiers fallen in the conflict in this sector uro burled—he was laid at rest. The chaplain gave a prayer, Ihe firing squad fired salute, the bugler sounded taps nnd that was all. Who he was 1 don't know. Hut ^the littlo wooden cross over his grave bears his niimo and number and some day. after the war his body will be taken back home. Everywhere we find theso little crosses, marking tho graves. The French graves have little bulls eye target markers on tho crosses. Those of our boys are marked with wooden crosses and little placards with name and number. 1/ saw a lot of boche graves yesterday, too, also marked properly. Well, this is a rather grue- ppjno topic so will turn to something more pleasant. 'Our regimental band gave a fine concert last night in the pine forest just back of our camp. I certainly enjoyed It. Ijcw F^inlt, director of our band has gone to , the corps' headquarters and hns been made a lieutenant. I see Don InrflB almost every day. Hoacta as mess sergeant from tho band and draws supplies. He ctill plays the big horn in the band. Tho concert last night Included solos, both fflstruioenlal and vocal. Our whlsller gave a couple selections and ono ot tho boys, an artist with the crayon, put on some good work. Hutchinson should bo proud of her band. 1 wondered If the folks at home could realize how the boys appreciate this splendid band. It's about the only entertainment we have. Gome Entertainment Given. Once in a while though, when back of tho lines we get to hear concerts given by entertainers In the Y. M. C. A.'.i. A couple of weeks ago I attended one sucli. Two American girls were on the program—the flnst American girls I have seen since last spring, except Red Cross nurses^ You, can. bet they looked good to THO— r even if married and With u family, H». Ha. ' The Y, M. C. A. is doing Tine work hero. There is a "Y" hut right up at the trenches. You find them everywhere. One of tho men In my force, Frank llamsdell, of Ottawa, saw me writing home and he wants me to tell Hrnesi Fcrsylha and Harry Schull that lw'a here and says "hello." Itatosdell, by the way, was secretary of the Ottawa Commercial club. Ho is one of my right liand men. — - ' Plums should bo thoroughly rffie and be dried whole, if they are dried at all.
