The meeting of the "Neighbor
hood Club" on Saturday evening
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F.
W. Carter continues the felicitous
tradition of this organization for
originality and good-fellowship.
Mrs. Carter, as a gracious and
kindly old lady received her friends
in the guise and garb of rollicking
children, and saw to it that they
had a thoroughly good time from
S'fcrt to finish. The children them
selves also saw to it that they had
a good time, and probably never,
since the days of their real child
hood, did they have such a rol
licking evening. The old fashioned
games, "Spin the plate," "Drop
the handkerchief," "R.ibbit,"
"London Town," "Going to Jeru
salem," etc. were played with the
enthusiasm and abandon of child
ren. The costumes were an unfailing
source of interest and merriment,
in some cases so changing the
appearance as to obscure identity.
It was noticeable what a large pro
portion of the guests were twins.
Among the costumes the following
may be specially noted. Mrs. J. II.
Coney as the big girl of the Lihue
Private School, looking and doing
the part to perfection, Miss L.
Day as a Bread and Butter miss of
dainty tastes. Mrs. Chas. Wilcox
as a country girl of refined tastes
and' manners was very charming
notwithstanding her "other hair."
Miss Margaret Waterhouse was an
Kngliijh country girl in flowing
auburn curls and short stockings,
Miss Aver as a little girl in her first
Vice party frock, .Miss Jordan and
Sfths Kaui Wilcpxas twins much
jven to giggling and simpcrjng.
Among the gentlemen Mr. J.
M. Lvdgate as "Johnny Boy" in
charge of sister Helen, Mr. J. II.
Moragne as the "Boy from Alaba
ma," Mr. Broadbent and Mr.
Hills as Buster Brown twins with
pockets, and the Wilcox brothers
as sailor boys ashore "on leave,"
were among the best.
Prizes were awarded by ballot
for the best all around imperso
nations as follows:
J. M. Lvdgate. Mrs. J. II. Co
ney, Miss L. Day, Mr. J. H. Mo
ragne, Mrs. Chas. Wilcox, Miss
C. Ayer and 15. W. Broadbent.

that he will make a success of his

According to a decision of tin
Board of Supervisors at their meet

twenty-two new seliool rooms must

or rain storms. A netting of wire
will also be rtdded to prevent birds
from building their n e s t s in the
rooms during vacations. Several

Declaring that the Makee Sugar
Company is discriminating against
certain homesteadeis in so far as
it has one contract for a certain
class and another for the haoles;
that such contracts include the
mortgaging of the homesteaders'
improvements in case of the fail
ure of a cane crop; that such con
tract will keep the homesteader in
debt with the plantation indefinite
ly; that an entire colony has not
accomplished anything tor the past
three years, since the period of its
existence as homesteaders; and
that there seems no possibility in
there ever doing so, is the way in
which Small Farmer Vandevcr, a
former Crecn country Illinois far
mer who has since last November,
owned a home tead on the Kapaa
lands, expressed himself to a re
porter just before he sailed for Ho
nolulu last Sat-irday.
"I came here last Novaniber,"
said Mr. Vandever, "thinking I
might profit by the experience of
those who had preceded me. I
found out, however, that they
were as much at sea as to what t
grow as I was, and as equally as
unsuccessful in their, attempt to
even make a living out of their
homesteads. I may return to the
island, but it h rather doubtful as
there seems obsolutely no chance
to succeed as a homesteader under
the prevailing conditions."
A reporter, on investigating Mr.
Vandever's charges as to "con
tracts, etc.," learned that the
colony referred to, is situated on
the opposite side of a large stream
which must necessarily be spanned
by an expensive trestle in order to
get a crop to the mill, and that the
Company is more than willing to
construct such trestle, providing
the colony will plan a sufficient
acreage of cane to justify the ex
pense of such construction. This
is said to be at least one hundred
acres, and that the colonists have
as yet been unable to gel together
on such an agreement, is said to be
the reason given by the plantation
for not having planted their lauds.
Mrs. J. L. Robertson of Kleele
gave a very enjoyable afternoon
tea on Wednesday afternoon that
her friends might meet Mrs. Frank
The careful selection of guests
ranged all the way from Lihue to
Waimea and a most congenial and
delightful afternoon was the re
sult. Mrs. Robertson made a most
charming hostess and J. L. added
an irrepressable element o f lmmor
and vivacity. A very enjoyable
feature of the afternoon was the
excellent music of the Eleele string
H . B . Morris, representing
Sellers and Co., Seattle, Importers
of Crockery, returned to Honolulu
Saturday. Mr. Morris is a live
wire and fell head-over-hccls in
love with Kauai, which he declares
equal to any place he eversaw and
said we could rest assured that he
will be a booster from now on.
