Hog and Goat Hunting.
The more I.arrison thought f
the plan the more enthusiastic, he
Ixx-anie over it. Jle took the trails
that spread out like the spokes of a
wheel from the camp site of Kokto
and found scenery magnificent and
inspiring. He discovered that there
was goat and wild hog hunting,
that there were springs of delicious
cold water here ami there over the
area, and that frost conies frequently
to silver the rich green turf that lies
beneath the mountain trees.
About a quarter of the whole is
land of Kauai is included in the
Waiinca-Kekaha lands, which are

Kokee the Beautiful.
Kokee is the largest open glade.
It lies at the head of the Waiahulu
branch of the Waimea river, and
from it, one and a half hours' ride,
visitors look down into the beauti
ful Kalalau valley. ,
"Or take Kilohana lookout,"
snys Lnrrison. "which is 4025 feet
in height and which overlooks Wai

terminates in 1020 The whole up
per part of this section is a forest
reserve all above the Waimea can
yon, uplands and drainage area.
In this area is the great Alakai
swamp which has an enormous rain
fall and which serves as a regulator
for the upper streams that make up
the- Waimea river. Below tins swamp
is a beautiful stretch of rolling up
lands covered with dense ohia forests
which thin out into open glades and
finally merge into a scattered koa
fir est as one descends toward Kcka
ha and Waimea.
Batween Two Forests
"'Here in this border area," says
Lnrrison, "between the heavy ohia
forest and the edge of the koa forest
are magnificent camp sites which
have already, been utilized to some
extent by Kauai residents, the most
notable place being the Eric Knud
f sen mountain house, "J alcmanu."
A wagon road is maintained up to
the camps and at times automobiles
can be brought through.
Lnrrison says that a few hundred
dollars a year would probably keep
the road in a condition that would
permit automobile travel the year
round an hour's trip from Wai
mea, some 18 miles distant.

also be reached from Kokee. There
are dozens of others."
Would Have Hotel There.
"My plan," says the superinten
dent, "'is to make this a great terri
torial or even a national park, plac
ing a responsible man in charge,
and holding the place open to camp
ers at all times, they b'eing required
merely to observe certain restric
tions in regard to fires and so on
for the protection of the forest.
"I will suggest the plan to the
governor not as a territorial offi
cial, but as a citizen. 1 would place
a hotel at Kokee, also stables for
pack animals and saddle horses.
Be'servoirs for big water storage
which will eventually be built in
the region will add to the atrrac
tivenuss when they are stocked with
freshwater fish and provided with
row boats and gasoline launches.
Each of these reservoirs would be a
mile in length, making a splendid
place for boating. To my mind here
is the chance for one of the greatest
parks in the world."
Old age finds many, who
in their youth were able
to go out any day and
make a good living, with
out means of support and
without an income. In
youth is the time to pre
pare for the future when
your earning capacity
diminishes, as it surely
will. Putting aside a cer
