Thk men who do a town more
harm than good, may be class

oppose improvement. Second,
those who run it down to stran

Till! advantage the automobile
has over the horse was fully dem
onstrated last week when Super
vising Principal H. II. Urodie ac
companied by Normal Inspector
Gibson made the following record:
Leaving Hanapepe at nine o'clock,
they proceeded to Kapaa where
they visited the school and were
ready to depart for Hauamaulu at
ten-forty. They reached the latter
school at eleven-fifteen where they
paid their respects after which they
left for Lihue, arriving there at
twelve thirtv. Considering t h e
distance between Kapaa and Hana
pepe to be thirtv miles, and the
fact that no less than three inspec
tions were made, the work accom
plished in a little more than three
hours would have been out of the
question without a machine.
wij owe it to tne community m
which we live to do everything we
can in every way possible that will
be to its advantage. Our neigh
bor's prosperity, means a great dcil
more to us than someone's who
lives elsewhere. Vc 'V.ould bear
this in mind in buying our goods.

Thk Maui News in its last is
sue, devoted a column to a spasm
over a write-up this, paper had giv
en regarding a bowling contest at
the Kegel Club in which one of
the Maui bowlers had participated.
The editor, after alluding to our
write-up, and terming it "hot air,"
set to and published our article ver
batim! . There is nothing unusual
about this any further than the fact
that the Maui News for once at
least contained interesting reading
on its first page. If our contem
porary would apply some of Tuic
Gakdkn Island's "exuberance"
to its own use instead of run
ning so much boiler plate and in
most instances four coin m n s
of seven day-old wireless news it
would not be such a bad old rag.
