AT KNUDSEN HOI
10011 10 LUAU
Hoea, the liome of Mr. and Mrs.
A. Kmiilsen with its spacious
grounds was transformed into n
typical fairyland on Monday,
November 23rd. When the ladies
of Waimea District, headed by
Mrs. Knudsen, gave a Garden
Festival for the benefit of the Red
Cross War Fund.
A more ideal evening for the af
fair could not have been wished
for and this made a large atten
dance possible, including people
from Mana" to Lihue.
The main attraction of the even
ing was the concert given by Mrs.
Bessie Abbott Ilowland , the not
ed operatic singer, who was ac
companied by Miss lionise Day, of
Lihue. Mrs. Rowland's voice,
under perfect control, was admired
and appreciated by all present and
her pleasing personality won for
her on Kauai a great many friends.
Mrs. Putman, of Lihue, and Dr.
West, of Makaweli, violin selec
tions, as well as Mr, Dougherty's
jsjuging were the means of adding
,rtnaterially to the musical end of
the evening's program.
Among the other attractions on
the program was the interesting
Norwegian Spring Dance, interpre
ted ny Miss Ida L' Orange and her
brother Hans L'Oraug, both 'of
, whom were attired in Norwegian
peasant costumes. Mis. Howland,
assisted by Mr. Morrow, of Lihue,
danced the cver-facinatii'g tango,
with her usual grace and style.
A good many things were raffled
off and this added to the amusement
of the evening and aided material
ly the income of the affair. A
number of booths in the various
parts of Mrs. Knudsen's spacious
grounds were presided over by. the
ladies of the district. Here one
could be served with coffee, cocoa,
cakes, sandwiches, drinks, candy
and it anyone tounct himselt in
urgent need of having his fortune
told, there were a number of Gyp
, sies present who for a small sum
V would tell your past, present and
future-and for a large sum one's
"future" could be much improved

ladies whose active participation
made the evening a most success

West, Banhain, Kalbaum, Oliver,
Greig. Misses Lee, Cummings,
Johnson, von Arnswaldt.L'Orange,

Although the affair took place
on a Monday night it did not intei-
fere with the attendance, to judge
from the receipts.which aggregated
John Lovell, Jr., of the Nuwi
liwili Garage, and Miss Victoria
Kaipo, ward of Mr. and Mrs. Wil
liam Fernandez, were married in
the presence of a very large audi
ence at the residence of Captain
Kuoka Lovell, Nawiliwili, at 7:30
last Wednesday evening, Novem
ber 25, Rev Isaiah K. Kaatnvai,
pastor of the Kapaa Native Church,
performing the ceremony.
For the occassion the Lovell res
idence had been elaborately deco-
Ucd with maile and flowers. In
corner of the parlor was a huge
bower of green and flowers, be
neath which the bridal couple
stood during the ceremonies and
tiring the reception which follow
d. The marriage ceremonies were
followed immediately bv a record-
reaking luau in a specially con
structed lanai, covering almost the
ntire rear lawn. The spread was
the most complete attempted on
Kauai in many a day, and was
much enjoyed, as was attested by
vidences of pleasure on the sea of
faces spreading out through the
The big luau was followed by
dancing on the neighboring veran
da, excellent music being supplied
by a string orchestra. The party
gradually broke up and the last
'alohas" were said about 11 o'clock.
Numerous presents were receiv
ed by the bride and groom al
most enough to furnish a part of
their home. These presents were
displayed on tables in one of the
rooms, and proved highly interest
ng to all particularly to prospec
tive brides present.
iJoth tne bride and groom are
well known at Nawiliwili, Lihue
md over much of Kauai, and
many friends share in the hope for
their future happiness.
Dr. Seymour Treated
Dr. Seymour, the oculist, under
went an operation at the Lihue
hospital early in the week for
chronic stomach trouble and is
now on the high road to complete
recovery. He came up from IIo
nolulu for the special purpose of
being operated upon by Dr. Put
man. whose reputation as a sur
geon he had learned of.
Treat For School
SCHOOL FAIR WAS
London Little fighting reported from Belgium last night'. The
Germans remained on the defensive all day. while the Allies made
more secure the positions thev had taken in the past few days. The
utillerv fire of the Germans is repotted to be feeble.
A British military observer, writing of the present situation, savs
that since the enemy abandoned their attacks in force along the Bel-
jian frontier, the lighting has reduced itself to a sort of sniping
competition, and a series of small allairs, winch were contested witn
rifles and grenades, bombs, mortars, mines, etc.
The excellence of the British commissariat is largely responsible
for British succes-.es. Probably no other troops in the war are so well
fed and supplied as the British.
GERMANY WANTS MORE MONEY
Amsterdam The governor of the province of Brabant, Belgium,
called the financiers of Brussels together and demanded $7,000, COO
monthly for the support of the German troops. He also imposed an
.uldiiioiial penalty of $75,000,000 for violation of the neutrality laws,
from which, it is claimed, Germany had suffered.

RUSSIANS EXPLAIN EXPULSIONS
Petrograd newspapers, explaining the recent wholesale expulsion
of Germans from Russian territory, say that this net ot the govern

tiou list to raise funds for. building German warships.
London Germany acknowledges that Russian northern army has
penetrated Fast Prussia to a point fifteen miles southeast of Gumbinnen.
The Allies offensive movements in Belgium, together with the
nlinro mninmiceineiit . form the two salient features of today's official
and unofficial reports.

day, 600 prisoners and many, wounded.

the handiwork of the school and

friends, to say nothing of candies,
ice cream and other refreshments
of a litrht order.
The fair during the afternoon
went off with a bang. The place
was literally jammed with people
f all ages, many Japanese children
being in evidence. So heavv was
the business, in fact, that by even

depleted. At the conclusion of the
evening hours all that remained
upon the tables was auctioned off.

death. As it was he got off with
a badly Uruised and lacerated leg,
which will keep him out of com

The horse and rider were com
ing out of the lane from the direc
tion of Rice's stables. Flag auto 260
was approaching down the road,
going toward Nawiliwili. At the
foot of the lane the horse became
fractious and pranced directly to
ward the oncoming auto. Seeing
the danger of collision, the auto
driver turned his machine quickly
away to the left, as far as he could
possibly go without striking the
stone wall. The machine was in
this position of turning when the
maddened horse dashed into it.
Ono was thrown against t h e
wheels of the machine, but was
not run over. One leg of his trou
sers was caught in the auto in
some way, however, and torn off,
and that leg (the right) was the
one worst damaged.
The driver of the auto (.a very
kindly man, and, moreover, wl.o
was in no way to blame for the
accident), stopped his machine
and made h l s passengers wait
