THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESJDAY. JANUARY 25. 1916
(By J. M. LyJgate.)
Fisherman and others feniiliar
with the little haven of Nualolo on
the Napali coast with be interest
ed in-the following account writ
ten nearly one Hundred years ago
by Hiram Binhanir following a
visit to the spot. Auk. 2, 1821.
"It would seem that some hun
dreds of natives live in, this for
bidding part of the Island'.'- the
Napali Se2tion-"subsisting doubt
less chiefly on fish. They -pass
from one neighborhood to another
in canoes. Here about halfway of
what the natives 'call the Pali' we
landed where on acre or two of
sterile ground, bounded on one
side' by the ocean, and environed
on the other by a stupendous cliff,
nearly perpendicular, forming at
its base a semicircular curve,
which meets the ocean at each end.
In the middle of the curve, a stu
pendous rock rises to the height,
I should say, of about 1500 ft.
Near one end of the curve the rock
projects 50 ft from its base, and is
here about 300 ft high. So that
10 houses of the village are built
under it and defended generally
from the rain and tempests, and
always from the direct rays of the
sun, till some time in the after
noon. The cool shade of this
rock, when we were there, be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock, extended
more than 100 ft. from its base.
Never was I so forcibly impressed
by any scene in nature, with the
force of the sacred words.' A hid
ing place from the wind: a covert
from the stotm: as the shadow of a
great rock in a weary land". The
highest part is called the Five Pa
li. Here the natives sometimes
exhibit their fireworks at night, as
they did a few nights since, when
the Kings lodged there. Along a
winding difficult ascent, which
m Commences by a rude ladder hang
ing over the sea, they climb to the
very semmit, and throw off fire
brands, or torches, ingeniously
constructed, which sail off to a
great distance and fall in the ocean
below. This is a very popular re
sort for fishing and when we were
there were no less than 70 men
and women engaged in that pur
suit, mostly using Auhuhu, or fish
poison, a leguminous plant which
they bruise and throw into the
waters about the reef. The poison
intoxicates the fish, which can
readily be secured, either by net,
or the open hand."

Herald for Aug. 1822.

A new cooking room and work
shop at Waimea and a new cook
ing room at Kleele school will
probably' be among the results of
the recent visit of Superintendent
Kinney to the Kauai schools. The
building at Eleele at present
used for instruction in cooking
and manual training will be used
for the latter purpose only.
A new school building was de
cided upon for Makaweli, to be
built during the coming summer.
The Superintendent was much
impressed with the need of a new
building at Kilauea, and that im
provement will be undertaken
with as little delay as possible.
Mr. Kinney was delighted with
the new site for tke Mana school,
which is a great improvement on
the old site.
Plans will be undertaken at once
for removing the llaena school to
a nearer point.
Steps will be taken to secure
more land at the Kapaa school for
use as a play ground. The effort
will be to get two or three acres
