A cane fire which had its origin
in a fire caused- by a burning
kitchen belonging to u.Kapaa
Japaitese, burned over an area of
nearly a hundred acres of land, on
the Kealia "Plantation last Friday
afternoon. A- ""oon as the fire 'was
discovered the entire plantation
force was rmlmd to the scene, and
while' every neans of checking tne
flamed was resorted to, they slowly
advanced until the greater part of
the bis field was envelope.d. Re
newed energy upon the part of the
fighters as a result of a lull in' the
high winds' which prevailed,
checked the flames however after
about one liuudrcd" acres of cane
had been burned t most of which is
ready to cut and will be saved.
Observations of "The

I can't see for the life of me
why the members' of the Mokihana
club cannot or will not as' the

members to- their honorable club.
Is it possible that our kind gentle
men can deserve such little con
sideration from our fail'' sisters?

I have recently seen a'b6u 'all
of the schpol houses and teachers'
cottages on Kauaj.and that which
impressed" me most forcibly was
the lack, of uniformity of the' build
ings. Aside from the recently built
.open air buildings, there are no
two class rooms.uoi cottages, built
on the same plan.
It strikes me that if some system
of uniformity of buildings could
be followed, much,, planing and
figuring cpuld'lje "avoided" 'when a
new building is desired.
Efforts are being made looking
forward to the formation of an
association of applicants for home--
steads in t,he McBryde. section, and
it is said jthat the promoters are
seeking an independent man as

At present, the laborer, the man
who cajr never be expected to be

should prove a lesson to our pro-
