A TRIBUTE TO
Paul le Normand de Bretteville,
who lost his life as the result of a
collision between a bicycle which
lie was riding and an automobile,
on Sunday morning, July 7, 1912,
was born in Honolulu i n Febru
ary, 1888. Paul was a dutiful son
and brother, always led an exem
plary life and as a result, was a
t'iPrite among his associates. His
catty life was spent with his pa
rents who came to Kauai while he
was yet quite young. Having once
entered Punahou College, he
became so earnest in his endeavors
to equip himself for his future
struggles, that he found little or
no time to take other than oc
casional visits to his Kauai home.
All through his college days, .his
closest chum was his only sister,
Miss Maud, who graduated with
him in the '09 class. Having been so
devoted to each other, the sudden
demisel enshrouded his life-time,
bosom companion, in inexpressible
Having finished college, he de

and as the result, he had not long
been with his first employer when
he was offered an advancement by
Mr. Richard Cooke, of C. M.
ook Co. Ltd., which he accepted.
T3egining as stenographer he rapid
ly qualified for further advance
ment, and ere long became book
keeper At the time of his death,
he was the Company's most trust
ed employe, plans being under
way t o allow him full charge
of affairs during a contemplated
trip by the manager to ihe coast.
He had worked for the firm for
three years and three months, and
enjoyed a reputation gained only
by honesty and faithfulness to his
duty and friends.
Deceased was a devout member
of the Central Union Church, a
member of Hawaii N. G. Co. A.,
a member o f the Healani Boat
Club, and a member of the neigh
borhood Tenuis Club, being its
secretary a n d Treasurer at the
time of his death. He doted upon
athletics; he fairly breathed them.
Never an opportunity to enter into
athletic sports presented itself but
he hailed it with delight. During
his college days, he was a leading
spirit in football, his favorite
position being on the end. Of all
the sports, however, perhaps that
of canoeing appealed to him most
ly, and it was while en route to a
practice row with his crew that
the great, grim reaper, stalked
abroad and claimed him for his

A LAW THAT'S
Damage to the amount of fifty
dollars in a single day as a result
of a nonobservance of a law which
has existed since 1907, would in
dicate a necessity for either com
pelling the enforcement of the law
or the doing away with it entirely.
The law in question is that
which prohibits owners of stock
from turning it onto the highways.
Last year the matter was taken up,
but little came of it, and as the re
sult, the public roads are lined
with stock from Hacna to Mana.
Drivers of autos are in constant
dread as they round curves, lest
they come suddenly upon a cow or
horse, which in many instances
persists in remaining stationary in
the middle of the road until the
machine is brought to a stop. Last
Sunday night, a car from the Na
wiliwili Garage ran into a horse
near the Lihue school, smashing
his big lamp and injured t h e
radiator almost beyond repair.
If county government means to
sit calmly by and see an individual's
property damaged, with the full
knowledge of an existing law,
made by the County itself, for the
protection of its individuals, and
to make no attempt t o enforce
such law, then by all means gi
us a form of government
can carry out the law as

not true by a long shot.

'The work of the home team was
the source of much praise, while
the fielding by the visitors was
most commendable. Although
weakened through the loss of Ho
nan, Makawcli still remains a
hard nut to crack, and still leads
as champ, of the second series.
