sons who were in a position to
realize the full meaning of the
split which occurred in the re
publican party when Roosevelt
bolted. However, Taft's backers
put up a strenuous fight, playing
as it were, on the present pros
perous condition of the country.
The appeal to prosperity did cause
s o m e pause, but Roosevelt's
strength weakened the Taft forces
to such an extent as to put the
big fat man out of the race.
One of the chief reasons for the
failure of the Roosevelt platform,
was that it would not bear analysis.
It promised too much, and noth
ing specific . Its principal excuse
for existence was to catch votes.
It could not work because so many
of its parts were contradictory.
The almost dishonest attempt to
capture the regular republican
electors affronted the public and
last but not least, the whole move
ment was Roosevelt, program
indicating a personal performance
rather than the operation of the
law. His demand was that every
thing be left to him. We are not
vet ready for personal government,
no matter how glamorous t h e
personality clamoring for it.
The best thing in the world is
work, and the best , work in the
world is for the children. It is the
seed and the soil and the planting
that we must look after together
with watchfulness of the growing
plants. What the harvest will be
we know not. W e may never
know and we need not know. The
influence of a great teacher tiny

whether in the country school or
the university, is the one whose

Thanksgiving Day will soon be
here once again a day dear to
every American. To fathers and
mothers and grown-up people, it
means family reunions; the com
ing together of those who have
been apart during the year;
married sons and daughters with
t he i r children gather around
"grandpa's" broad table well
filled with eatables, and give
thanks together to the Father of
all for good harvests, health and
the blessing of the year.
To the children it means long
promised trips, happy times with
cousins and aunts, and uncles,
the dainties so delightful to youth
ful tastes, and all the good times
which dhildren and young people
together know so well how to en
joy. The day is waited for as one of
happy expeditions; a n d when
past, about it cluster the sweet
memories loving deeds done
tears wiped from the eyes of the
lonely sister, sadness, scattered
from the unhappy brothers heart,
hungry fed, the cold clothed, and
the homeless cared for.
The Fourth of July is a day of
noise,. January first a time for
"resolutions," Christmas is set in
happy thoughts, but Thanksgiving
touches the sweetest chords of the
soul. In rendering thanks to the
one Father, all men own them
selves brothers and acknowledge
those ties of love which bind
brother to brother.
Hawaii has perhaps thought less
of Thanksgiving in the past than
it will think of the dav in the years
which are to come. In a land of
perpetual summer, where he who
will may eat those things which
the less favored of mankind would
receive with devoutly thankful
hearts, we accept as commonplace.
Let us remember, though, that the
sick and sad are with us; and, as
our land fills with people, here
and there will be found, hidden
away the neglected, the uncared
for, the hungry, and for all of these
'botherly love" will prompt us to
It is none too soon to teach in
our puniic scnoois, t n e deeper
meaning of Thanksgiving. Older
communities on the mainland do
it, and beautiful indeed is it then
to see, on the morning preceding
Thanksgiving Day, every ehi
carrying to school, his offerings for
the needy, nought in many a case
with the pernnies saved by the child
himself for that very purpose. One j
little fellow brings two or three!
potatoes, another a pound of flour,
another a jai of fruit; one little j
girl has made a dress, another has I
something else that will gladden
the heart of some little homeless
waif; and when all the offerings
have been gathered together, it

IT is said that Treasurer Morgan
came near defeating himself by
refusing to vote. Luckily h i s
good judgment got the best of his
modesty and Harold, after much
persuasion, voted the straight
ticket, which of course included
his own name. 8
One of the bullets in the re
volver with which John Schrauk
shot Roosevelt, was tested on a
guinea pig and found to contain
no poison. This was very com
forting to Teddy, but mighty risky
for the guinea pig.
The election is a thing of the
past and let u s hope that the
people of the greatest libertv-lov-ing
country i n existence have
chosen the right people for the right
place. As to Kauai we feel certain
on this point.
The new wireless station proved
a most popular place Tuesday
night, and the accomodating
operators who kept wires humming
all night have the hearty appre
ciation of the community.
And now comes the prohibition
ists with the suggestion that
Teddy's defeat was due to his hav
ing been half-shot. Maybe'twas,
but there are just a few missourians
left among us.
WE don't see why it was
necessary to use an c-iay on Roose
velt to discover the bullet that
struck him at Milwaukee. Any
body can see through Teddy.
A Chicago beauty feller wants
to swap Ye Editor some complexion
cream for an advertisement. If he
will send some good old-fashioned
cow cream it will be accepted.

lates the newly elected candidates,
and will add its appreciation for
their support of the local press.

pulled off on him during a recent
speech in Waimea was perpetrated
by a professional button-ski.
