CAUSE OF PILIKIA
Three horses down within a few
hours, was the record one rainy
clay last week, the accidents being
due to the slippery condition of
the road between the Lihue Store
and the Fairview Hotel. The
cause given for so much slipping
lies in the fact that instead of the
road being perfectly flat, it declines
each direction from the center,
making it almost impossible for a
horse to hold its footing when the
surface is wet. The road is perfect
as to appearance, and in dry wea
ther, is a success in every respect.
But it loses much of its attractive
ness when one scringes in his sad
dle, fearing every moment to be
thrown headlong with possible fatal
results. If no other means can be
found to overcome this menace to
life, it might be well to level
the road bed. A pretty public
highway is an indication of a com
munity's prosperity, but to main
tain such a highway at the expense
of injury to animal life without
making an effect to remedy condi
tions is inconsistant with the best
considerations for that which is
far more important than the com
munity itself the lives of our citi
zens. IDEAL DAY FOR
From every part of the Island
came expressions of appreciation
of the ideal Thanksgiving weather.
Luncheons here, dinners there out
ing parties and appropriate church
services occupied the people
throughout the day and evening
The Lihue Union Church service
was especially pleasing, being
greatly enhanced by a violin solo
by Mrs. F. L. Putman which was
performed in a highly pleasing and
A COW PONY
A cow boy in the employ of W.
H. Rice, Sr., met with what came
near being a fatal accident last
Wednesday forenoon about half
past eleven o'clock. He had roped
a cow, and before he could make
fast, a collision occurred between
the horse and cow. The horse
reared and the rider was thrown be
tween the two animals. Falling head
first he struck the ground with a
terrific force, h i s shoulder and
head sharing in the impact. The
result was a dislocated shoulder
and a serious blow on the head,
the latt.er from which he did not
recover full consciousness until
the following morning. He was
taken to the hospital immediately
after the accident, where his in
juries were attended by Dr. Put-
man. No complication is feared.
The fair for the benefit of the
Lihue Library, will be held on
Thursday, on the church
grounds at 3 p. m. There is every
assurance of a beautiful display of
reasonable articles, useful, dainU
and artistic. Prices will be reasoiv
able. Values will be pressed
down, full and running over.

The Library Fair will open sharp
at 3 p. m. You had better be there
5 minutes in advance and lay your
hands on what you want or you
won't get it. Things vanish like

OF GOOD SUPPORT
The annual appeal to the public
for volunteer contribution to the
support of the Lihue Band, is meet
ing with generous giving, the
treasurer reporting the receipt of
quite a few very substantial checks,
and numerous small amounts.
Among the donations by the Inst
mail was the following from Mrs.
C. M. Cooke of Honolulu:
Treasurer, Lihue Band,
At the request of Mrs. Chas. M.
Cooke, we enclose a check here

maintenance of the Lihue Band.
Mrs. Cooke also wishes to ex
press her appreciation and to con
gratulate you on the marked im
provement you have made during
the past year.
Yours very truly,

The Lydgate contingent of the
"Boy Scouts" by way of a Thanks

After the manner of good old
New Kngland, Thanksgiving Day
was duly observed in Lihue by a
special service. The church was
very effectively decorated with a
profusion of Bouganvillea artistical
ly combined with ti leaves and cane
blossoms. A special choir h a d
been made up for the occasion which
in addition to the usual hymns,
rendered a chant and a responsive
service. The music was very much
enhanced by the violin accompa
niment of Mrs. Putman, and her
violin solo was most enjoyable. In
his brief address Mr. Lydgate com-
, mended the wisdom of Huckleberry

all the time for evil signs and bad
omens. Look for the sunshine

27 DIE WHILE
According to late advices from
.Honolulu, the immigrant Steamei
Willesdon arrived in Honolulu las
Saturday, laden with a human car
go consisting of 1306 Portuguese
and 543 Spanish subjects.
Twenty-seven deaths occurred
during the trip, mostly among
children, who died from measles,
small-pox and chicken-pox.
Dr. Victor S. Clark's advice that
future shipments be attended with
more frequency to avoid crowding,
would suggest the idea that much
of the fatality on this trip was dm
to such a condition.
