trades," shot his wife in the back
mauka of Hanamaulu yesterday
morning and shortly afterward, in
the neighboring cane-field,- turned
the weapon on himself, sending five
bullets into his own body.

is in such a condition that opera
tions are out of tho question. Tho
woman will likelv recover.
It in stated that Doi and his wife
had had family jars for some time,
and that another man figured in
the case. On account of their troubles
tho woman left home. Yesterday
morning Doi met his wife in an
automobile on a side road above
Hanamaulu. He fired one shot
which struck her in the back and
she fell in tho machine. He quite
evidently thought ho had killed her.
The woman was rushed to the
hospital and a search was instituted
for the would-be murderer. Ho Avas
found in the cane field a short dis
tance away from the first shooting,
with five bullet wounds in his body
and in a state of collapse from loss
Doi came to Kauai from Hono
lulu about a year ago to work on

FINOS 10NG BED
A prominent citizen of Lihue,
whoso family is away at present,
had an unusual experience in the
early hours of yesterday morning.
He was awakened from his own
slumbers by the snoring of someone
in tho house. Realizing at once
that something out of the ordinary
was eventuating (as an Englishman
might say), lie pulled himself to
gether and started on a very still
hunt for the snore and tho snorer.
The nasal music led him out to his
sleeping porch, which he had not
occupied for several nights on ac
count of the cold, damp atmos
phere, and there, comfortably en
sconced in the lied, was a Hawaii
an, with clothes and hoots on, "dead
to tho world," except for the snore,
which ho was keeping up with tho
vigor of the Lihue band playing

manded the lord of the castle, at
the same time giving the intruder a
"I been Lihue", explained the
native, "and had one h good
time. Now I back homo in Wai
mea. ' '
A light dawned on tho Lihue man
at once, lie explained matters to
the intruder ami there was one sur
prised Hawaiian in that house in
stanter. It may bo of interest to know that
the fellow got back to his home in
Waimea and will probably simi the
pledge if some good prohibitionist
will call around there to see him.

ish gravity that was most charm
