representative people attended the i some idea of the commodious little
Kleele dance last Saturday night 'building which stands as a nioiiu
the occasion being in the way ofj'nient to the thrift of the members
dedicating the new McBryde Hall, , of the community. The hall was
a gift to the community through
I'f&.-atc subscriptions and erected
by McBryde Plantation. As the
hour for the beginning of festivi
ties approached, crowds of be
comingly and tastefully gowned
ladies accompanied by their gallant
escorts, appeared from every direc
tion and when at 9 -o'clock the
strains of sweet inuic signified
that all was in readiness for the
start, the hall with its shining
waxtd floor became the objective
point for scores of eager dancers
who lost no time in getting iiito
the whirl. Anl oh, such a whirl!
Richly gowned handsome, women
glided over the floor with their
attentive partners, the music iievej
sounded sweeter, and the electric
lights seemed to fairly sparkle as
though they, too, shared.inthe de
lightful revelry beneath their rays.
Something of an inovation was
the manner inwhich refreshments
were served. On. the makai side1
of tho building a temporary room
had been . constructed of canvas.
In this room were tables vith
places for fifty guests. The room
was prettily decorated and from a.
cosy little buffet, in one corner
issued forth numerous little Japa

Alexander's thoughtfulness ;n pro
viding this arrangement, will
probably be of lasting benefit to
thorse who were there and saw the
value of the scheme. Cigars,
punch and soda were served in two
places on the lanai..
Extending from all four corners
of the hall were code flags, so
hung as to form a cross over the
iter of the hall. Just enough
.'veen was used to daintily touch
up the relief from newness. At
the rear of the hall and as a back

A Pretty Bridge Party
By Mr. and Mrs.
The beautiful home of Mr. and
Mrs. A. D. Hills of Malumalu was
the scene of an enjoyable bridge
party last Friday evening the oc
casions being a farewell to Mr. and
Mrs. A. H. Rice. Appropriate
decoration greeted the eye from
every direction while the hostess
appeared in her usual pleasingly
hospitable manner. The guests
were Mr. and Mrs. A. II. Rice,
planned and built by Mr. Moller,
at a cost of a little, more than
82.000.0Q. The building is 40x70
over all, has lanais on two sides
and i n front, both lanai's ter
minating in dressing an d cloak
rooms, with doors leading onto a
twenty-foot crescent shaped stage.
Foot-lights are conveniently placed
along the" front of tboistage, and a
fancy drop curtain is to be here in
.the near future. Three clusters of
electric globes gives an abundance.-
of light at night, whtle a s,ufhcent
number of windows furnish ample
light during the day time. It is a
very 'pretty structure and one with
which every citizen who donated
towards its existence, should feel
extremely satisfied. '

Tuesday, April 30th, 1912, at 10.00

A report (P 703) from Dr.
Glaisyer 611 the conditions of the
County mules now in the different
districts of the County of Kauai,
was dulv received and placed on
This report is as follows:
The Board of Supervisors:
I n response to your request for
an examination of the mules of the
various districts, I have the honor
to submit the following report.
1st: Hanalei District: Mules
are all sound and good with the
exception of one. Said mule is
sound but very old and cannot do
the work required of him, viz:
working in a heavy cart.
2nd: Kawaihau District: Five
soitnd, serviceable mules and two
incapable of work. One- of these
is an 18-20 year old mule, chronic
tendonitis in all four legs and in
capable of doing a clays work on
The second is a mule with bid
tingbone and goes dead lame when
worked a few hours on the road
arid, is incurable. .
3rd: Lihue District: T h r e c
mules not serviceable totheCounty .
The first two are very old 19-20
years. One is rheumatic and stiffen
ed in the shoulders and incapable
of doing an honest days work. The
second has a shortening of the
tendons behind, also unfitting him.
The third is a younger mule that
has now been under treatment for
three months for dislocation of the
stifle joint. This has happened
twice before in the last three years.
The mule might be all right for
light work eventually but will al
ways be liable to be laid up from
auy sudden strain such as he is
constantly subjected to in County
Koloa District: One mule in
capable of doing any work being
lame and stiff, incurably so, front
and behind. Also two small mules
not really capable of handling
carts, but in good condition for
some time t o come. One good
large mule in fine condition.
Wainiea District: Mules arei
mostly well along in age but are
capable of doing the work required
of them for some years yet.
I therefore suggest that the Board
of Supervisors dispose of the fol
lowing: Hanalei: one mule, sound but
old and weak.
Kawaihau: two mules, unsound
and incapable of work.
Lihue: three mules, unsound
and two of advanced age.
Koloa: one mule unsound and
incapable of work.
If possible to do so to good ad-j
vantage the other two, if they can
be replaced by larger and more
