An exchange says that a great
scandal is stirring Belgium, and
the story goes that Queen Eliza
beth had discovered King Albert
making love to a chamber maid
and shot and killed the girl.
If the queen looks anything like
her picture in the exchange, we
don't blame George from making
love to the chamber maid.
The "short cut" road through
the "Jap" region is getting to pre
sent a very rough and neglected
appearance full of bumps and
holes and ruts. To drive over it is
very trying to the gear o f a
carriage and still more so to the
comfort of the rider. There are
still a few "common people" who
don't ride in automobiles and who
would like to travel by the "short
cut" road occasionally. Can't a
little attention be given to it?
That county government, in
so far as Kauai county is concern
ed, is a success, was never !more
definitely emphasized than when
the Board of Supervisors at their
meeting last Wednesday, unani
mously voted in favor of carrying
out one of the gigantic and most
worthy educational advancements
in the history of the Territory.
Commissioner W. H. Rice and
Supervising Principal H. H. Bro
die, were present with detailed in
formation on the needs of our
schools, the former occupying
sometime i n the explanation of
the requirements o f his depart
ment, with the result that h i s
every request was readily granted
by the Board. There is a unity
among our county officials which
cannot be overvalue I , a n d
which accounts for the sue -essful,
administration of the county's
A prominet Los Angel business
man was a visitor at Wednesday's
meeting, and to a reporter said:
"My work brings me into contact
with Board meetings every place
I visit, and I can't recall a more
business-like, and better conduc
ted session, in all my experience,
than the meeting to which I was
honored w i t h an invitation last
As to our public school affairs,
the present administration by local
officials is not to be compared with
past methods when a teacher was
compelled to await the pleasure of
clicky powers i n Honolulu, i n
case she n e e d e d a dust-pan, or
"broom," Under the present most
efficient management, whether it
is a hoe or a school building that
is needed, the Supervising Prin
cipal, our Commissioner of Educa
tion, the Board of Supervisors and
the County Engineer, all unite in
"landing" it. Thisvcry satisfact
ory state of affairs most assuredly
speaks much indeed in favor of
County government where honesty
is ably and vigorously pursued.

Last week's issue of the

unfeigned interest, editorial, pro
fessional, fraternal. If we under
stand what a "Midget" is it seem
ed to us that the name of the
paper is misleading. In size,
character and general make up, it
suggests to us a lusty boy i n
knickerbockers who can ride any
thing and climb anything and
smash anything in sight, and who
is the despair of his mother in the
wear and tare on his clothes. That
same boy is much in evidence and
has a goodly sense of his own im

Tim Gaudhn Island has this
week, placed its advertising under
a classification method which has
proven a success wherever inaugu
rated, and which we feel sure will
be as successful here. For instance,
the reader may be interested in
"vulcanizing," or, again, he might
wish to know something of our
"hotels, uin which case he will
find under theproper classification,
all there is to learn in the paper
concerning them without having
to run through all its pages. This
is undoubtedly an improvement
over the old method and will doubt

Wk understand that one of the
difficulties about securing a good

willingness of the wives of the pos
sible candidates to come to Kauai.
This is a calamity. How have
these estimable ladies "got onto"
the limitations of life on Kauai?
Have they themselves by'some del
icate instinctive sense divined it,
or have their sisters here on Kauai
.given us away and made them wise
The limitation, the poverty, the
boreness, the monotony of life on
the "other islands" of course wei
have known -about that, but we
thought we were keeping still about
it and hoped that the wise and dis
criminating people in Honolulu,
the people who are all culture and
refinement and literature and fine
clothes wouldn't catch on. But the
cat is out of the bag now. Well,
dearly beloved sisters, who are or
may be judges wives, why not
come to Kauai in the missionary ,
spirit of sacrifice and help to rem-1
cdy our deplorable condition.!
