11 BURGLARY CASE
The quiet, little town of Kalihi
wai had a real, live burglary case
last Wednesday morning, as a re
sult of which Alfredo Buenasedn,
Filipino, is in the county jail
awaiting action by the grand jury.
The store burglarized was that
of R. XiiU'inoU). Entrance was
gained bv cutting out a pane of
glass from t h e front window.
Watches, lings, sweaters and
numerous other articles were taken,
the total value being about $100.
When notified of the burglary
Deputy Sheriff Win. Werner im
mediately 1 egan an investigation,
and at the same time notified the
nuighboi hip; police in order that
they might also be on the lookout,
The police at Kealia caught the
man on Thursday, who at the time
of his ar-.sl had a part of the
plunder o ii Ir's person. Being
nabbed "re.l-handed," as it were,
there was nothing left for the man
to do but confess, which he did.
He was arraigned in Judge
Huddy's court at Hanalei. and
pleaded guilty as above noted,
The police endeavored to have him
expose his accomplices, but he
steadfastly refused to do so.- At
the same time, however, two other
men are being held on suspicion.
An incident of the burglary con
vinces the police that- more"
than the one man was concerned.
The dining room of the proprietor
was entered and various eatables
were consumed. What attracted
particular attention, however, was
that two, quart bottles of beer weic
drunk, the empty bottles being
left there. It is figured that two
quarts of b e e r was going it
rather strong for one, little Fili
pino, and, consequently, there
must have been others with him.
0 SOCIAL CLUB
T h e On Soci.ii Club. Lihue,
held a meeting at the office of S.
K. Ilannestad Thursday evening,
elected officers for the ensuing
term and adopted a number of
amendments to the by-laws. One
ol the amendments provided for a
secretary and treasurer in place of
a secretary - -treasurer as at pre
sent. The election of officers re
sulted as follows:
S. U. ilannestad, president;
Chas. S. Dole, vice president;
Miss A. Booge, secretary;
E. Mahn, treasurer.
One ame'idiuent adopted pro
vides fwr a reduction in the dues
from St. 25 a month to 75 cents,
many feeling that the former dues
were rather iteep.
It was decided that in the fu
ture invitations issued by members
i u their tun, respectively, to
functions other than those held in
Lihue Social Hall should be first'
submitted to the secretary.

PULPIT AND THE
For his text at Libit" Union
church Sunday morning Rev. J. M.
Lydgate took for his text 2 Tim.
2:24, and said:
In common with some of the
rest of you, I attended the
Teachers Convention held at Ka
paa a few days ago and was very
much impressed by what I saw
and heard there. I suppose if I
had stopped to think I might have
known that there must be a good
many teachers on Kauai, perhaps
even I did know in a vague way
that there were upwards of a hun
dred, but it is quite a different
thing to see them all together in a
dav. Also in a vague way, I had
known that they were an invalu
able factor in the development of
our island and a reassuring guar-antee-of
conditions of life. To attend one
of these conventions is to quicken
and intensify these conations
and to call forth a large measure
of admiration for the intelligence,
enthusiasm and faithfulness of the
fine body of teachers one meets
there. And as one deeply lnter
ested in the highest well-fare of
our island I wish to express my
appreciation of these teachers and
the work they are doing and also
iy appreciation of how much it
will mean for our future.

PHILIP RICE AT
Philip Rice, who attended the
Good Roads Congress in Chicago
in December as the delegate of the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce, is
having a complete report of the
convention prepared, which he will
shortly send here for the informa
tion and use of the local otganiza
tion. In a letter in regard to his
impressions of the convention, Mr.
"What interested me most was
the display of modern road-building
machinery and equipment, in
cluding exhibits of several large
manufacturers and sales companie
and the exhibits of material for
road construction; also the "bou
levard", consisting of short sec
tions of pavement built cf different
material or by different methods.
"If the Kauai Chamber of Com
merce expects to have a delegate
at the next annual Good Roads
Congress, it might be well to plan
immediately for an exhibit similar
to the exhibits of the State of New
York, the State of Arizona, and
others. These exhibits consisted
of photographs of roads, before
and after improvement or paving,
showing changes of grades, changes
in types of bridges, in surfaces of
roads, etc. Such an exhibit could
be prepared at a minimum of cost
by having the photographs taken
with an ordinary kodak and en
largements made from the good
negatives. An exhibit of this kind
costs comparatively little, b u t
draws considerable attention and
is effective as an illustration of the
progress of a community."
Tennis To Begin
At a meeting of those having the
matter in charge, held at the office
of H. Vincent Sunday morning, it
was decided that the Lihue Tennis
! Club should pull off a mixed-doubles

Lodz The destruction here almost equals that i n Belgium.
The country is laid waste, food supplies an- gone, and the terrors of
the Russian winter add t" the suffering of inhabitants. In Lodz,
hotels and hospitals are unhealed: candles and illuminating oil are
exhausted; food stocks almost entiiely gone. The greater part of the
inhabitants sit idly, shivering and hungry .
London The German attack is shifting northward toward Al

French positions, and similar tactical successes are reported in Argon

A Paris bulletin contradicts this claiming progress near Pont a
Mousson, where Germans have almost completely evacuated the Forest
of Lepretre. Berlin admits progress bv French at Pont a Mousson,
but says position is well contested. Heavy snows are paralyzing move
ments in Alsace and the Vosges. British military "eye witness''

British advance near La Basse. S'rys, no offensive has been under
