THE GARDEN ISLAND.
NATURAL ROCK FOR FENCE-POSTS
"Speaking of concrete posts"
said a prominent contractor the
other clay, "why, on the W. H.
Rice ranch in Huleia, there are
thousands of tons of some of the
best material for fence posts I ever
saw. Great ledges of rock hang
from the cliff -side-rock which by
very little trimming would be
ready for use. There's a mountain
of wealth in that locality, awaiting!
to be dug out and realized. Many
pieces of this magnificent stone
have been taken out and used in
the construction of various bridges
as well as gate posts. I believe
they will some day be used for
just such purpose as Manager
Broadbent's concrete posts."
The speaker cited instances
where in the Northwestern States,
concrete posts had been success
fully used for years, and believed
they were just the thing for the
Islands. "In Dakota" said he,
"a friend of mine built a fence on
land which was so rocky that it
was impossible to dig post holes,
so he simply drilled out a small
depression in the rock, poured in
his concrete, jobbed down his post
and in ten minutes had his post as
solidly set as Gibralter.
"While the initiative cost will be
somewhat more, I am of the
opinion that the concrete post will
eventually replace the present post
as the up-keep will amount to so
little in comparison with the posts
that necessarily must be ex
changed owing to decay."
how linda cooked
Oh, when I married Linda I asked
"Can you cook?"
She just looked wise and answered:
1 1 know my little book."
And since that time she's fed me
on dishes a la France,
With Sweden, Spain and India,
thrown in when there's a
I've breakfasted on waffle with
jam and mayonnaise,
For lunch I've see spaghetti cook
ed in fifty different ways;
And when I'm called to dinner
quite often there will be
Hungarian goulash on the board
Scotch scones and Russian
My appetite is hearty, and I dote
on simple food,
But if I should confess it my wife
would call me "crude."
So all my meats are stuffed and
braised croq netted and
My vegetables an gratin-ed m y
desserts are glace-d.
I'm steeped in spice and curry,
I'm filled with crumbs and
(I'm pretty sure that nothing in
our kitchen goes to waste.)
An' when, with all my" hungry
soul, I yearn for Irish stew,
I hear the carol of the cook: "Just
taste this Swiss ragout!"
I sigh for beefsteak simple, but my
sighing is in vain.
I'd give a whole week's salary to
see an egg cooked plain.
I love a boiled potato, but always
'pon my soul,
There're minced with peppers,
nuts or cheese, or served en
How I would relish pork and
And O' what a relief
'Twould be to find upon my plate
a hunk of good corned beef.

THE HANALEI WHARF
'LORD" CAMPBELL MESSING THINGS UP
The new plans and specifications
for the Hanalei wharf are at last
completed and tenders are out,
calling for bids. The tenders are
not advertised in The Gardkn Is
land, for two reasons, probably
the first being the fact that the
peanut-headed individual at the
head of the Department of Public
Works objected to our criticism of
his mediocre method of doing busi
ness and second, apparently, for
the reason that he does not wish
our local contractois to learn too
Our local contractors are already
in possession of more facts than
is lualthy for the Big Chief if he
but only knew it, one of which is
that which brands him as entirely
incapable of his possition, being
the mess he made of the first plans
for the wharf and the continual
putting up of school-boy excuses.
When the Head of a Department
of the importance as that of the
Public Works is incapable of esti
mating the cost, and drawing plans
for small contracts such as the
Hanalei wharf, it then becomes the
duty of any self-respecting public
do a little investigating.
But hark! A voice calls: "Dinner,
John! Come see what I have
Here's a shrimp souffle with Creole
sauce, and mushroom marin
