lamp, destroyed the residents and
contents belonging to Mr.Theveuin
at 3 o'clock yesterday morning.

bed and taken the lamp in her
hand which in some manner she
let fall. The bedding instantly be
came ignited and Mrs. Thevenin
rushed into the yard screaming for
help. But no one was suffi
ciently near to be of any assistance

NEW CLUB IS ORGANIZED
On the afternoon of the 25th. of
March there was an informal meet
ing of the promoters of a new
social club at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. M. Lydgate. The club is
to be known as the Grove Farm
Neighborhood Club, to meet once a
month in rotation at the homes of
the members. The purpose of the
organization is to promote a spirit
of sociability and good fellowship
and. prevent the development of
lines of clearage or class feeling.
So far as we have learned there is
little or jio organization, no officers,
uo duesi no constitution and by
laws, and by one condition of
racjibp'rship, viz. "Do your share 1
and take your turn!" T""
The hosts on any particular !
occasion may write a limited mini-1
ber of guests outside the member-1
ship of the club. The membership
of the club is as follows: Mr. G.
N. Wilcox, Patron; Mr. and Mrs.

departure, the influence of which
cannot fail to be beneficial. Long
may the Grove Farm Neighbor

NOVEL EVENING OF FUN
One of the most novel and
original entertainments ever given
in Lihue was that provided by Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Lydgate on Friday
evening by way of Launching the
new Neighboihood Club which has
been organized by the Grove Farm
Part 1 of the program which
follows below consisted of a varied
presentation of vocal and violin
music recitations a n d tableau
with quick transitions from grave
to gay all sprightley and enter
taining, culminating in "The Bad
Night," in which two popular but
inexperienced bachelors man and
maiden blessed for the time being
with twins, showed' very" com
clusively that they knew how to
handle them when they suddenly
developed colic in the middle of the
nignt. Prom tne pained look on
the father's face, some maintained
that it was he who had the colic
and not the baby.
The young ladies of the School
Cottage shed a halo of glory about
themselves bv their impersonations
of the Lost Bride in the Magic
Mirror tableau. Henceforth some
of our young men will do well to
"sit up" and take notice of tlcm.
The "Mill -Pond Maidens" also
took their parts very charmingly
and won much favor.
Mrs. Ptitman and Mrs. Hills, as
always, were demurely sweet, and
were listened to with rapt attention.
The second part o f the pro
gram consisted of about a dozen
presentations of popular" Ads" in
tableau form to be guessed by the
audience with a prize for the best
Some of these were simple and
easy to guess, such as "Jello" and
