It is about time preliminary
steps were being taken for the for
mation of June brides.
The Wailua School, Kauai's
latest school building is one of the
exceptions it has no flag staff.
A New Jersey man, 100 years
old, says he shaves himself without
a scratch. But think of the
practice he has had.
The people of Hanamaulu are
expecting to hear from the Lihue
Plantation in regard to that post
office in about ten years.
Better hurry u p with jour
homestead proposition, for when
Uncle Sam's family o f soldiers
arrive they will need a whole lot of
"Him fine leppo. Pololei lice ha
nahana. All sem Pake place." So
spake one of the "American" appli
cants for a Kapaa homestead lot
to a reporter.

In the latest and greatest steam
ship just launched there are life
boats for 5,250 persons. Still, the
proper thing for a ship to do with
life boals is not to need them at
The stock law is again in need
of a little closer observance. Cows
browse around Lihue as though
such a law were out of existence.
If owners of cattle are privileged
to pasture them on the county road,
they should be compelled to keep
a herder with them.
It is rumored that the reported
pineapple pest has dealt a serious
blow to the pineapple stock-mar
ket. From the seat of the infested
district, come reports which would
tend to put a q ietus on things,
and the normal condition of the
stock has once more obtained.
Lihue has a number of excellent
social clubs, why not another one
entitled The mother-in-laws'
Club." That much abused and
maligned individual gets nothing
but bone-headed negro minstrel
jokes, yet she is one of the most
useful members of society and
should have a show.
''The Pope is Entirely Recover
ed," says a headline over an As
sociated Press cable in a contem
porary. Now that this is the case,
what will the press do for its daily
news service? O f course, there
remains the Balkan war affair, the
Japanese war scare, the Filipino
hook worm, but these are of such
minor importance as to cause but
little ground for sensational read
ing. Ho climbed the ladder of success.
His jstws were set, m look was grim,

A foolish woman smiled at length;
And then he tumbled down.
There i s something radically
wrong with a butcher shop which
permits swarms of green bottle and
germ laden houseflies- to crawl
over meat which goes out to its
customers. There is no excuse for
such conditions and the Board of
Health should revoke the license
of anyone conducting business in
any such a manner.
A local man has invented a
gate w h 1 c h he claims w i 1 1
revolutionize the "Bill Board' in
dustry. The gate is to be put up
free of cost to the cwner, who
agrees to permit the inventor to
paste advertisement on it, the ads
to cover a space of several hundred
square feet on a frame at the top
of the gate. If this advertising
scheme materializes, the ladies of
Kauai will very likelv go the same
"gait," that the Honolulu ladies
did in the Fraizer ccse.
Memorial Day, one of tin
most sacred of our Americar
national holidays, was fittingh
celebrated by the public school;
throughout the Territory las)
week. In some instances school
held exercises i n-doors, while
others were taken by teachers to
local cemeteries where a generous
distribution o f flowers followed
appropriate addresses and songs
It was a lesson which the chidren
will always remember a s the
highest token of esteem which can
be expressed to their loved ones
who have gone on before them
Judge Dickey of the local
Circuit Court, has been very
fortunate so far in his courting
experience in Lihue, having pass
ed the last two terms without a
crimmial case o n record. This
bespeaks much in favor of the
citizens of the Garden Island and
the influence of our police depart
ment. However, the coming term
bids fair to be one in which His
Honor will get considerable
exercise, one instance of which
will be the recently tried liquor
dealing case, wherein Rosa & Co.,
of Honolulu made an appeal from
the district magistrates decision.
He is at present engaged in pass
ing judgment on a brand new Buick
In his evidence against a Michi
gan newspaper man for damages,
I eddy Roosevelt declares that he
never touched a cocktail in his
life. He admits freelv that he has
taken a sip of champagne once in
a while and in fact has been known
to take two, during one banguet
with a champagne taste it is easily
seen why the Colonel has turned
down the less desirable cocktail.
Teddy may have never been drunk,
but it might at least be left to the
public to account in a great
measure for such a condition being
responsible for some of his actions
and statements prior to the last
election. Better men than Teddy
are often accused of being drunk,
and we can see no reason why he
should take o n so greatly over
such a simple, every day state
One reason why the campaign
against the housefly is not carried
on with enthusiasm by a lot of
people is because they are con
vinced o f the uselessness of it.
What good does it do for them to
fight flies if their neighbors do not,
they argue. For such people there
is encouragement in the recently
announced discovery that flies live
their entire lives in a circle with a
diameter of but 1500 feet.
Such areas, of course, overlap,
and any particular community of
this size might free itself entirely
o f flies and still have them on
account o f the overlapping seg
ments of other areas. But it is
evident the center of an area 3000
feet diameter could be made en
tirely free from flies, provided
none were permitted to breed and
hatch in any part of it.
The existence of filth, decaying
food, rotting manure or anything
of similar nature may well be con
sidered the greatest stumbling
block in the battle for absolute abo
lition of flies. As long as any
neighborhood i n a town allows
such things it will be practically
impossible for the remaiuder of the
town to rid itself' of the health
destroying pests, no matter how
niiich conscientious and intelligent
effort is expended.
But with the knowledge that
flies live in zones of but 1,500 feet
diameter, fly-fighting should be
carried on with greater zeal. It is
possible to rid a community of flies
and keep it so, and considering the
tremendous gain in health insu
rance o f such a triumph there
should be no let-up in the struggle
for its achievement.
ARE POETS MADE?
Are poets made? I nsk yon thin,
Because it is something I miss,
Are poets made? I ask again,
Because I love Area' a pen.
Are poets made? I question you
To answer me If this is true,
Are poets made-both old and young?
Respond me in Oalm's tongue.
Are poets made? I do not know,
Nobody said that it is so,
I know that all the flowers fade,
But I do not know if poets aro made.
Are poets made? I cannot guess,
A prophet's tongue I don't post-es,
I know that birds sing in the glade,
But I do not know if poets are made,
"Why are you late for school,
Sam?" asked the displeased teach
er. "Well. I was crossin' the street
when a cop said, 'Here boy, mind
the steam roller' so I staved and
minded it until he came back."
