DON’T FORGET TO GO SEE SAM KAHOE.
Below Aala Park, at the fair of the Court Lunalilo and Court Camoes [Foresters] being held for four day from next Wednesday, June 9th until the night of Saturday, June 12, will be seen that Hawaiian boy, Sam Kahoe, doing his amazing feats, that shock the minds of all that see him.
This Hawaiian can eat fire, can walk bare upon shards of glass without cutting his feet. He can perform feats of power that make you dizzy, and in a few words, he is a professor in the mysterious arts, equal to the famous haole who have come to Hawaii nei.
It is something very new to see a Hawaiian boy carrying out these activities, and it is a proud thing to see him drawing the fancy of hundreds of people who appear before him and witness his awesome feats.
[One year later, and it seems Sam Kahoe is off on his own doing the shows. I wonder what happened to Pilipo Kahoe and William Hema.]

FEATS OF POWER DISPLAYED
The picture above is one of three Hawaiian boys who are doing performances at the Theater on Vineyard and River streets on the night of this Wednesday and Thursday. These boys can walk on glass that is shattered into tiny pieces without cutting their feet; they can put a person to sleep; and do many other amazing feats of power like those that are seen being done by the haole in this town.
These are boys from Honolulu nei, and it was here that they learned acting and feats of power, and the audience will be astounded to see the readiness and the true expertise of these Hawaiians at their profession.
These boys travelled around Hawaii Island with their performances, and they believe they will go around the different theaters of this town and some other islands outside of Oahu nei.
The names of these boys from the left: William Hema, Sam Kahoe and Pilipo Kahoe.
