Windward Kauai suflered con

thunderstorm which struck that
side of the island, during the early
hours of last Friday morning
The intensity of both lightning
and thunder being at times such

The Nawiliwili rice patches and
bmana groves were probably the
.ones suffering most as the stream
of rushing waters swept everything
It was not very long before such
a volume of water had gathered at
Nawiliwili proper that horses
were swimming and carts floating.
Mr. K. C . Hopper who was
watcfiing this scene realized that
the amount of debris which was
gathering crowding against the
bridge was becoming dangerous so
" gave the alarm which brought
Engineer Moragne to the scene;
none too soon as presently the old
"wooden bridge gave way and was
' carried against the concrete pillars
of the new one. In endeavoring to
'. clear away the fast accumulating
debris, banking up against the
bridge, George Uhuhu one of the
men working under the direction
of Mr. Moragne slipped and was
wedged between the wreckage, of
the old bridge and the concrete
foundations of the new one, his
head just remaining above water.
With the combined effoit of the
bystanders and the aid of strong
ropes the wreckage was finally
pulled away sufficiently to allow
the imprisoned man to be released
from his watery prison.

Sundays Soccer Game
Lack of practice and efficient,
team work on the part of theLordr
Young eleven gave yesterday's'
soccer game to the German side to
the tune of 7 to'l. Though some
.very distinctive, nmiviuuai piay&
were witnessed, tauure to ODserve
even the most rudimentary team
work tactics, inevitably lost the
battle for the county aggregate.
The German eleven which was
composed of picked men fiom both
the Siebel and Kuhlmau teams,
showed to aood advantage putting
up a strong game.
Good team work in several in
stances gave tnem anotner run to
goal. . .
This was the first regular prac
tice game the Lord-Young bunch
have played in, and with consistent
practice in team work they should
be able to make to make their good
individual plays count.
The next game will take place
Dec. 7th between t h e German
team and the All Americans.
