MEETING OF LIHUE
A novel and most delightful af
fair was the dinnei for members
of the Lihue Uuior Church at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Lydgate on
Tuesday evening last. A long
table was extemporized for the oc
casion, and 24 members sat down
to a delicious dinner, finding their
places by a sort of place card of
There was a freshness and novel
ty about the whole affair, as well
as a spirit of cordial fellowship
which gave it vivacity and enthu
siasm from the start. One of the
interesting features of the dinner
was an impromptu poll ot the
guests as to the coming Presiden
tial election, with an overwhelm
ing vote for Roosevelt, though one
or two voted, two hands at a time,
for Hughes. Wilson didn't seem
to be in it.
Another interesting teature of
the dinner was a toast to Mr. Pur
vis, in which Mr. Lydgate faceti
ously referred to bye-gone events
when Mr. Purvis had so far for
gotten his dignity as to imperson
ate John Knox in a vaudeville
show; and feelingly expressed his
deep sense of appreciation for the
loyal and unfailing support which
Mr. Purvis had given to the church
during all these years of his con
nection with it

he recalled in a word, the history
of the church, now 20 years old,
and suggested that the time had
come for it to move forward to
new lines of usefulness and activ

was that of treasurer. Mr. William
Henry Rice introducted a reso
lution of appreciation to Mr Pur
vis for his long years of faithful
service as treasurer. Mr. W. N.
