a couple of Chinamen Sunday night
whom they believe to be the par

The Chinamen are old opium
fiends, and the police had been
"wondering for sometime how they
made a living.
No loot has been discovered,

Chinamen have been without their
"sleep medicine" in the jail for i
day or two, they will tel some
thing of their doings, and perhaps
the whereabouts of their plunder.

Oleander Kills Colt
A young colt, belonging to Har
rison Rice, Lihue, died Sunday
morning and investigation showed
that the cause was eating oleander,
which had been cut from the hedge
and thrown on a pile to be burn
ed 1 a t e r. The circumstance is
mentioned as a caution to others
who may have oleander growing
ou their premises.
It is understood that Colonel
Spalding has prepared a proposal
for building a cannery for the
Waipouli homesteaders. The pro-
nosition. it is understood, is to

Heavy advertising leaving such
meager space for write-ups of
every kind at this season, a com
plete account of this elegant and
much enjoyed function must be
omitted. It may be said, in geuer
al, however, that all present had
a most delightful evening, and re
grctted very much when the hour
for dispersing came.
The beautiful colored cover for
the big holiday number of Tub
Gakdf.n island, which will be
issued December 22 (in time for
the mail leaving that day), has
arrived and the matter for th e
paper is being assembled as rapid
ly as possible.
The paper will undoubtedly be
the biggest a n d most beautiful
souvenir of its kind ever gotten
out on this inland; and will be the
finest ever offered Kauai people
for mailing to friends abroad.
Owing to the uncertaiuty at the
time as to the number of papers
that might be required it now
seems likely that too few covers
were ordered; and that the entire
issue'will.be sold out long before
A book has been opened iu this
office in which orders for copies
of the big holiday number are be
ing entered as they come in; and
these orders will be filled in rota
tion as they are originally set
down until the papers are exhaust
ed. Advance orders may be sent
in.eithei by letter or telephone. In
either case, however, the person
booking the order should state de
finitely t h e number o f papers
The price of the beautiful holi
ay number will be fifteen cents,
which will just about cover the
expense of getting it out. It will
not be possible to make any reduc
tion tor quantities.
A brief history concerning this
loliday issue of T it it .Gakdhn
si.and will bear repetition. A
ittle extra "splurge" in the way
of features had been planned for
the issue just before Christmas,
when the Hawaii Promotion Com
mittee started its campaign for a
'Hawaii Paper Day", or a day
when all the papers of the Rroup
should issue numbers carrting
write-ups of their respective sec
tions of the Is'ands. To this re
quest o f the Hawaii Promotion
Committee, Tin; Gakdkn Island
replied that it was already plan
ning a large paper for December
22, so could not go in on the
'Hawaii Paper Day" proposition.
'All right", replied the commit
tee, "suppose you make your issue
of December 22 vour 'Hawaii
Paper Day' number."
And so we will. It will be a big
paper of and for Kauai, for her
people and her industries; and it
is hoped that it may go to all parts
