There was a great scare the other
night at Nawiliwili that jarred peo
ple out of their comfortable morning
sleep and filled them up with the
an anxious conviction that some
German raider was scanning the
port for a prospective bombardment.
Later it transpired that it was the
Mauna Loa search light that had
created the scare.
There was a select week-end house
party at the A. S. Wilcox Ilaualei

C. A. Rice, Mrs. F. L. Putman,

good of Mrs. Robertson to make it.

Caught In The Rain
There was a big rain Saturday
night ; we all knew it, but none so
well as a little dinner party at Pu-
kaki. When the time came to no
home it had already rained enough
to make the hill down into Kapaia
dangerous, so thealtornative, round
about route by way of Ilanamaulu
was taken. But there is one bad
grade on this route, and theycould-
nt make it without chains. By
this time it was raining, in torrents,
and no one had the courage to get
out into the mud, with party cloth
es on, to manipulate tho chains.
According they just sat there, in
comparative peace and comfort, for
a couple of hours or so, until the
rain abated, so they could get out.
Ihey deny that t.hey got home too
late for breakfast, but admit that
it was a long way round !
Sheep or Goats
When then- is a special high grade
piano recital and an attractive pic
ture show, all on the same evening
our sympathies are sorely tried and
our families are apt to be rent in
twain. The other evening the chil
dr en were rounded up for decision
after dinner, by the father, who
likes music in theory, but loves pic
ture in fact. "Do you want to go
with mama to the musical, where
the sheep will be, or with papa, to
tin' movies, with the goats?" "Oh,
let us go with you and the goats ! "
And tho goats it was, in spito of
anything the mother could say.
Wisdom From Washington
A U. S. Department Of Agricul
ture Thrift Bulletin just received
decrys the criminal waste of the A
niorican People. As 11 nation we
seem to have a'disdain for economy.
There is a wide spread feeling that
it is only decent to provide more
food that can bo eaten, and that it
is mean to reckon closely. The ex
perts of the Department, who have
made a careful study of the matter
put the annual food waste at (00
millions of dollars; a waste that is
appalling in view of the great short
age and the vast needs of the world.
1 he greater part of this waste is
probably to be traced to the homes
of tho people who are at once the
well-to-do and the more intelligent.
The Department emphasizes' the
urgent need for economy. Don t
serve too many courses; you can t
possibly cat them alll Dont throw
away the good food that is left over:
it can bo used! Dont waste in pre
paring, by careless peeling; you
throw away some of the best of the
food! Dont burn and spoil good
food in the cooking; that is simply
The U. S. Department of Agri
culture calls attention to the high
due of milk as compared with
other food products. Milk at ten
cents a quart is as cheap for nutri
tive qualities as sirloin steak at
twenty cents a pound, and eggs at
twenty cents a dozen. Milk, in ad
dition is the most digestible of foods,
the one whole food supplied by na
ture, the one-food that we can use
without danger or distress. '
There arc many ways in which
milk can be used to great advantage
in cooking, such as pudding, cust
ards, blancmange, soups, chowders,
sauces, junket, Dutch cheese etc.
Evidently we haven't been doing
justice to the cow and the milk
man; but don't tell them or they

Wisdom From Fair Lips
A fair patriot, though from the
ranks of our Allies, speaks the good
American gospel truth when she
says of Lihuo that "every public in-
stution should fly tho American
flay." We are glad to note that
these institutions are more nnd
more falling into line, together with
very many private individuals
trust that this drift may soon grow
to a landslide.

n me Mid
The June number of the Mid
Pacific Magazine contains a lengthy
illustrated article entitled "The last
King of Kauai" by .!. M. Lydgato.
It was a paper specially prepared
for the Honolulu Historical Socie
ty and read at tho l!)l(i annual
meeting of that society.
It gives a comprehensive account
of all that is known of that very re
markable hero, who, was doubtless,
the finest Hawaiian that the race
has produced. Incidentally the
story of tli is barbarian King sheds
a good deal of interesting light on
early conditions on these Islands,
which are now so far away, that
they are almost utterly forgotten.

The family of the late John J.
Cook, of Kapaa, Kauai, take this
means of extending to all sincere
thanks for their sympathy and
