Supervisor Mcncfogiio i n t ro-
duced the subject of bonding the
county for 5100.000 for the pur
pose of completing the so-called
belt road from Mana to Haena at
an early daU pointing out that
bv so doing the road might be
completed in two years, while un
der the present arrangement it
would take at least eight. I lis
points in favor of bonding were:
First, It would a better road; sec
ond, would increase the value
of property and thus increase
amount received from taxes; third,
there would be a great saving by
doing the whole job at once in
place of stringing it out over a
period of years; fourth, a fine,
macadamized belt-rord woulde a
great advertisement for the island:
fifth, a considerable burden would
be lifted from the shoulders of
present-day taxpayers and the bur
den distributed along to future
users of the road; sixth, there
would be an end to kicks about
bad roads; seventh, there would be
much more money left from cur
rent funds for macadamizing later

Indeed I do," smiled the Bachelor Girl, looking
about at her violets and boxes of candy, and toying
with, the bit of paper lace and verse in her hand.
"I don't meaji these," . responded the Bachelor,
also looking, but a bit grouchily, at the expressions ot
devotion about her cozy room. "I mean the idea of St.
"And 1 just heartily say 'yes' to that; for I sup
pose you mean, do I believe in sentiment and in the expression of
sentiment? I think you need senfiment in vour life, and I think we
need to express sentiment. The trend ot thought today is setting so
strongly toward the practical and the matter-of-fact, and we need to
offset it. But mind, I say sentiment, not sentimentality."
"But the trouble is, so many slush over into sentimentality."
"Yes," regretted the Bachelor Girl. "But perhaps, even that is
betler than having no feeling ot the kind whatever. Such people per
ceive dimly the beauty of the feeling, or are aware vaguely of its ex
istence. And so in time, they will probably come to the true expres
sion of it. In groping toward it, they may make a mistake. But it
is better to be conscious of light, isn't it, even if ever so slightly, and
to make an effort to get into its beauty and warmth, than to be blind
"Yes, I suppose so," admitted the bachelor. "But I was just
think'r.g of that silly verse that came with that box of candy," and he
pointed to a resplendent heart-shaped box of bon-bons.
"That may not be the effort of a master-poet," excused the Bach
elor Girl. "But nevertheless I like better the person who is in sym
pathy with the spirit of St, Valentine's Day, than one who sneers or
scoffs at it, or simply thinks it all nonsense. When w do genuinely
care for a person, I believe in showing that regard I'm not talking
personally now about these valentines. But I mean generally Most
of us let expiessious of regarel have the go-by. Maybe on special
days, like Christmas and birthdays, we'll let those whom we love,
know how, much we think of them. But other times, we are so busy
with eating and ilressing and working and keeping engagements, that
love is left alone to entertain himself. And so I am glad old St. Val
entine introduced himselt and called uir attention, in such a delight
ful and whimsical fashion, to the wisdom of showing our dear ones
that they have a very warm corner in our heart. And that fact that
once a year, we can, with petfe-ct propriety, do this as whimsically
and mysteriously and alluringly as our imagination can devise, .makes
it to me all the more praiseworthy. For I think it does us all good to
stt!p aside once in a whiis from prosy, familiar ways of living, into the
realm of fantasy."
"I half hoped," said the Bacheler anxiously, "that knowing
my tastes as well as you do, you woukl be able to tell which were the
valentines I sent you."
