In the contest of tie-down roping [? hookuku hoohei a kulai bipi] held by the boys of Waimea on this past Happy New Year Day at Samuel Parker Ranch [Samuela Paka Ranch], Charles Lindsay took the fastest time of 39 2/5 seconds. That was quick. But if it was a Honolulu cow, it would have taken 2 minutes.
