No use talking, nobody is in a
hurry to go to heaven while he can
spend a November on Kauai.
No wonder the price of 'Yale
Ilarvard seats is high. Three Ho

in the game.
The atmosphere was so highly
charged during the recent electri
cal storm that streaks of electricity
were seen to run along the wet
grass of the lawns in the vicinity of
the Lihue Church.
The "Get Together" spirit
which is rapidly permeating the
Honolulu business man, was shown

America has at last evolved
the mititaiit suffragette. Mrs. Pank

merely a psychological coincidence.
The Chinese are awakening to
the fact that opium is dragatory to
the advancement of the nation,
and as a result an immense amount
of the 'dope' is now packed away
and growing nuiaty in some of the
larger cities of China.
Three large fishes are reported
to have been caught in the Lihue
mill last Friday morning as the
floods subsided. Sounds like a fishy
story but it isn't. The fishes sought
a 'quiet' haven of rest,' far away
from the turbulant seething waters;
but they must have heard that
there was no grinding going on,
At a recent meeting of a well
known Medical Society, one of the
members got the following off:

Talk less, think more,
Ride less, walk more,
Clothe less, bathe more,
Worry less, work more,
Waste less, give more,

Another thing on President
Wilson's program is the indepen

is bound to come. And then the
humiliating spectacle of the Unit

Phillippincs are neither States nor

right to hold them as subject.
When Abraham Lincoln said that
no man has a right t o govern
another without the other's consent

The story reaches us of how a
pet game cock saved the life of
little three year old Harry Fiuley
of Steubenville. Ohio.
The rooster in question was ac
customed to plav with the little
fellow, and not finding him at his
usual haunt, went in search of
him. As the cock drew near to his
little playmate, he srw a large
copper head snake draw back its
head preapratory to burying its
fangs in the lad's face. Without n
moment's hesitation the old fighter
was at the snake, dashing in and
out, dodging and leaping, he wat
ched for an opening to bury hfs
'heels' in the head of the reptile.
The child's mother was the wit
ness of the killing; when the cock

Secretary of the Navy Daniels
recently declared that politics in
the United States are improving,
steadily climbing to a higher plane.
He declares 'no more elections are
sold in America. Contributions tor
campaign purposes from selfish in
terests are under the ban, and this
better political condition is not
confined to any one party." Noth

the nation than the realization to

But the splendid leadership of

an awakened public consciousness,

Christmas is coming, with all
its attendant joys, and pleasures.
Not least of them all is the pleas
ant custom of serenades given by
the Hawaiian quintets, at the pri

be far better if each quintet stayed
at home; that it played simply

The most important schedules
of the tariff from the standpoint of
the consumer are those dealing
with articles entering into the di
rect consumption ot the people.
Among the large number of reduc

several affect raw materials, such
as iron ore, pig-iron, hides am!
leather, etc., or inanufactuied
goods, like boot-making and sugar
making machinery , textile machin
ery , chemicals etc. to compensate
manufacturers for the diminished
protection to their own products. 1
These reductions would not ncces-
sarily lower the cost of living, un
less accompanied by reductions of

by the ultimate consumer. From
this point of view the schedules of ,

schedules, dealing with cotion, ,
