Seated around the table in one of
Kauai's up-to-date hotels recently,
were eight traveling men. It was
the evening meal they were partak
ing of, and it was my pleasure to
be assigned to a chair at the same
table. A waiter made his appear
ance, bearing a tray heaped with
corned beef and cabbage, and in a
becomingly dignified way, proceed
ed to proportion this delicacy among
the various members of the group.
Opposite me, sat one of the boys
who had just been attended by the
waiter and who with a sorrowful
expression on his face exclaimed.
Bovs, are there any chickens on
this island?" "Chicken?" Came
the response in a chorus as if they
had been prompted "Who said
chicken." Then from a bright
Knight" on my left: "Boys, I
came near having chicken in liana
pepe yesterday for lunch."
Liar!" came another chorus of
shouts. Well," continued the
interrupted narrator, "you see I
ordered eggs, and if the cook had
been a little slower on his feet,
I would have had chickens."
Say, you talk about Willie Rice
being a 'chicken fancier.' I guess
we all are some chicken fanciers.
with the accent on the 'fanciers,' at
that." Feeling that the bringing
into their discussion, one of our lo
cal boys was sufficient grounds for
my butting in, I presumed to re
mark to a member of the party who
sat nearest me. "I suppose you
boys do find it difficult at times to
get just what you like to eat while
on the road, particulary at some of
the off-road places." "Yes." said
the talkative Knight o f the grip,
and as a sample of how they hand
it to us p o o r unfortunate roust
abouts, I'll relate a little- incident
which happened to me on my last
trip to Hawaii." Yes, le t him
tell it." Again it was the chorus.
"I don't know anything about it,"
said one of the boys, "but I'll
wager a free sample package of
Obak Kelley's cigarettes that he'll
tell it well, even if it never hap
"As I was about to relate," said
the narrator, "it was on Hawaii.
I left Honokaa quite early i n
the morning and on my arrival at
Kukuihaele about seven o'clock,
and desiring breakfast, I entered a
Chinese restaurant. When the Chi
nese approached the table, I asked
him what he had for breakast.
"Ham an' egg, no more ham."
Came a quick reply accompanied
with a Fairview Hotel attitude.
Was it French? Was it well, for
some moments I was at a loss to
know what His Celestial Majesty
meant, and still feeling dubious, I
told him to bring it in.- What he
brought me were two fried eggs.
You see some one had told him
that haoles liked 'ham and eggs,'
for breakfast, and as he had no ham,
he called it, ham an' egg no more

brother drummers, "what did I tell
