THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1915,
HIS PACK OF
The following is published at the
request of an esteemed friend of
another Kanni town, Although
as old as the Spouting Horn, per
haps, it is suggested that there may
be those who have never read it:
"Soldiers' Prayer-Book and Almanac"
The first sergeant marched the
soldiers to church. When the par
son had read the prayer he took
his text. Those who had a Bible
took it out. One soldier had neith
er a Bible nor a common prayer
book, but pulling out a deck of
cards spread them out before him.
He looked on one card and then
on another. The sergeant saw
him thus enraged and said to him,
"Richard, put up the cards. This
is no place for them."
"Nevermind that," said Rich
ard. When the services were over
the constable took the soldier a
prisoner, and brought him before
"Well," said the mayor, "what
have you brought that soldier here
for?" And the constable answer
ed: "For playing cards in church,
your honor." "Well, soldier,
what have you got to say for your
self " inquired the mayor, "Much,
sir, I hope." said Richard, "Very
good; for if not, I will punish you
most severely." "I have been ."said
the soldier, about six weeks on the
march. I have neither Bible nor
common prayer-book. I have noth
ing but a pack of cards, and I hope
to satisfy your worship of the
purity of my intention." "Vcrv
good" said the mayor.
Then spreading the cards before
the mayor, he began with the ace;
"When I see the ace, it reminds
me that there is but one God.
When I sec the deuce, it reminds
me of the Father and Son. When
I see the tray, it reminds me of
the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
When I see the four, it reminds
me of the four Evangelists who
preached; viz: Matthew, Mark,
Luke and John; when I see the
five, it reminds me of the five vir
gins who trimmed there lamps
there were ten, but five were fools
and shut out; when I seen the six,
it reminds me that in six days the
Lord made heaven and the earth.
Wen I see the seven, it reminds
me tnat on the seventh day God
rested from his work He made
and hallowed it. When I see the
eight, it reminds me of the right
eous persons that were saved when
God drowned the world, viz: Noah
and his wife his three sons and
their wives. When I see the nine,
it reminds me of the nine lepers
that were cleaned by our Saviour
there were ten, but only nine re
turned thanks. When I see the
ten, it reminds me of the Ten
Commandments, wnich God hand
ed down to Moses on a table of
Stone. When I see the king, it
reminds me of the great king of
heaven who is God Almighty.
When I see the queen, it reminds
me of the Queen of Sheba, who
went to hear the wisdom of Solo
mon, for she was as wise a wo
man as he was a man,
She brought with her fifty boys
and fifty girls, all dressed in boys'
apparel, to see whether King Solo
mon could tell which were girls.
King Solomon sent for 100 basins
of water for them to wash them
selves in; the girls washed to the
elbows, and the boys only to the
wrist. So King Solomon told by
''Well," said the mayor, "you
have given the description of all
of the cards in the pack except
one." "Which one is that?" ask
ed the soldier. "The knave said
the mayor. "I will give your
honor a description of that, too, if
you will not be angry." "I will
not," said the mayor, "if vou will
not term me as t li e knave."
"Well," said the soldier, "the
greatest knave is the constable who
brought me here." "l do not
know," said the mayor, "whether
he is the greatest knave or not,
but I do know that he is
Quite a large number of mem

RANCH IN IEXAS
C. II. Alspaugh, who will be
well remembered as vocational in
structor in the schools of Kauai
last year, has purchased a farm
near Vernon, Texas, and will lo
cate there. He is at present tak
ing a post-graduate course at Man
hattan, Kansas, following which
he will take up his residence on
his new property.
The following item, from a Ver
non paper, should be of interest to
local friends of the gentlemen:
"Mr, C. II. Alspaugh has bought
114 acres of land from Alfred
Mercer and Miller and Arrington,
two miles southeast of town, and
we are glad to sav intends to lo
cate here. He will leave here to
day for Manhattan, Kansas, but
will return next spring and take
charge of his farm, He is a live
and progressive voting man and
will make a valuable citizen for
Is Eleele School
Although a long time ago the
school at Eleele was officiallv de
clared to be the "Kleele School"
and not the Hanapepe School",
a number of people (including cer
tain school officials) have continu
ed to refer to it. in and out of print,
as the "Hanapepe School". At
tkeir last meeting the Commission
ers of Education passed a motion
again declaring that the school at
Eleele "shall be known officially
hereafter as the Eleele School."
Chamber Of Commerce
A regular meeting of the Kauai
Chamber of Commerce will be held
in Judge Ilofgaard's court room at
Waimea at 3 o'clock Thursday af

Waimea under the new rule which

island. Civic Convention and a
number ot other matters will come

the greatest fool." "When I count
the number of spots in a pack I
find 365, the number of days in a
year. When I count the number
of cards in a pack I find that there
are fitty-two, or as many weeks as
there are in a year. And I find
four suits, the number of weeks in
a month. I find that there are
twelve picture-cards in a pack,
representing the number of months
in a year and, on counting the
tricks, I find thirteen, the number
of weeks a quarter. So you see,
sir, that the pack of cards serve for
a Bible. Almanac and common
prayer-book to me."
ARBOR DAY WILL ,

Governor Pinkhnm has set No
vember 19 as Arbor Day this year,
and on that date all the school
children of the Territory will plant
trees. Following is the Governor's
"The practise, now widespread
on the mainland, of setting aside
one day each year as Arbor Day,
began in Hawaii ten years ago.
Since then, here as well as else
where, the larger movement for
the conservation and development
of all natural resources, of which
Arbor Day represents only one
phase, has made great progress.
Six years ago, in consequence of
the quickening of the public con
science and interest in these mat
terj and the practical results there:
from in the inauguration and ex
tension of active work along these
lines, the scope of the dav was en
"Accordingly, I hereby desig
nate Friday, the ninet-enth day of
Novembe, 1915, as Arbor and Con
servation Day for the Territory of
Hawaii, and recommend that on
that day appropriate exercises be
held in all the schools of the Ter
ritory and that a part of the day
be devoted to the planting of trees
Hawaii Delegates Pleased
The Hawaii delegates t o the
civic convention, and so far as we
know, the other delegates, find no
language strong enough in which
to express their enthusiasm over
the Kauai program, and especially
among those who had not seen the
Garden Island before, and the glor
ies of Kauai scenery. Despite diffi
culties such as Kauai had to con
tend with, in the way of accommo
dations and transportation ot dele
gates, it is a good thing that the
convention was held .there. For
the sake of retaining the inter-is
land interest in the discussions, it
will be well for the permanent or
ganization of civic conventions to
continue the plan of rotation of
meeting places among the islands.
