Local and Personal Notes
Before the boys harvest tin- crop
from the thousand papain r- and
the thousand banana tree, promised
elsewhere in our eitluum, we will
have to provide marketing faeilitie
so that they may be able tn difpoe
of either product. Otherwiw they
will have to nil up nights to eat
them themselves. A central market
is needed for then and now.
With the abnormally high prices
of potatoes, onions, cucumbers, etc,
the market gardeners must lie reap
ing a harvest indeed. We hear of
one small farmer, Japanese, who is
said to have made S'i.OOO this lat
season; and one vegetable woman
drives about in a Kord truck to de
liver her goods to her patrons. That
looks like, the aristocracy of the gar
We understand that the Knuden
interests are proposing to plant a

their beach lands atl'oipu near Ko

the purpose, and doubtless they will
thrive mightly. They will add great

well as the increased Meanier rates,

announced that all employees en

arm of the Government service,
will have their positions kept open
until their return at the expiration
of their terms of enlistment.
A Musician Conies and Goes
Mr. Sidney V. llobcn, virtuose
pianist extraordinary, came to Kauai
last week, with intent to give a se
ries piano recitals, as he had done
with signal success in Honolulu, lie
found however that the music-loving
public were so engrossed in
other thing, and so busy that they
hardly had time to listen to his
plans, and no time to take them
up and put them through. Conse
quently he departed by the Kinau
without carrying out his intentions;
and doubtless he is not as enthu
sastie about Kauai as he might
have1 been under other circumstances.
Colleges Deserted for the War
Private advices from the East
comment regretfully on the inroads
the war enthusiasm is making on
the great educational institutions of
Hie country. Colleges are being de
serted by large llocks of their stud
ents, who are offering themselves in
various capacities for service. And
in many cases the professors, find
ing themselves deserted by their
pupils, are following suit. Nearer
the front than we arc, and in much
clo.-cr touch with it. they have
caught the enthusiasm much more
thoroughly than we have.
A Building Ordinance Needed
Our attention has been called to
the need of a Huilding Ordinance
for the Island of Kauai. Villages
and towns are growing up in our
midst, and growing up, it is to be
feared, very much hit or miss ac
cording to the barbaric taste of the
builder. As a result we are getting
an unsavory collection of slums tliat
are noisome, and rookeries that are
lire-traps; a menace to themselves
and to their neighbors. There ought
to be a certain reasonable degree of
public control over building opera
tions winch would impose on the
builder the simple standards of sani
tation and lire protection which are
in the intere.-t of the whole eom-

For some unknown reason the

Ileal raspberries, acre of them, J
growing right hre in Hawaii, ripo

Once upon n time, an enterpris
ing Hilo man went to the West In-
dies and found there the Jamaica
raspberry; and visions filled his
mind of raspberries and cream, and
raspberry shortcake, in Hawaii as
well as in Jamaica, so he brought
some seeds home with him; and
thoy grew allright; nnd he had his
raspberries and cream, and his
shortcake, while he remained in
this vale of tears, and when he left
it he left the raspberries behind.
And since then they have multi
plied exceedingly, and now the for
ests, and ravines, and road-sides,
and sheltered places, are swamped
with Jamaica raspberries, and peo

takes possession of the country. True
to its promise it beais berries; and
they are not bad with sugar and
cream, and they will make short
cake. Hut do we want them?

The Pan Pacific Union
Alexander Hume Kord, ofllands
Hound the Pacific fame, is now to
the front with n new organization,
the Pan Pacific Union, which is to
hwallow ui nil curlier and leser fry
in that line. This organization is
to have the backing of the leading
men of the various races, with a
large loard of trustees representing
all the Islands as well as all the
The object of the Union, in the
main, is to promote the harmony
and interests of the Pacific, with
Hawaii as the Cross Koads and cen
ter of things. Various enterprises
arc outlined to this end, including
a Pan Pacific Imposition after the
war; the creation of a Pan Pacific
Museum and ArtGallery; the found
ing of a Pan Pacific College etc.
It will also have a fostering eye
on the tourist, to see that he is pro
perly taken care of and gets all the
good time that he pays for.
