What cnnio vcrj near bning
fatal automobile accident occurred
last Saturday afternoon, on Hie load
between Koloa and Lawai.- Willie
Aki, accompanied by Irwin Cockett,
tbe fourteen year old Eon of J. K.
Cockett, of Koloa, were proceeding
toward Lawai i n Mr. Cockett's
truck. Aki was at the wbeel and
says the machine was travelling at
the rate of about fifteen miles per
hour when suddenly he lost control.
The truck swerved to the right and
apparently turned a sommersault(
as it landed bottom side up, facing
in the opposite direction from which
it was travelling and pinning the
occupants beneath it.
Young Cockett, who was thrown
thru the wind shield and rendered
unconscipus, was pinned down in
Such a manner that ho was in dan
ger of being asphyxiated by the es
caping gasoline, which was pouring
out in his face, as well as being
crushed by the weight of the car.
Aki. who was not so badly hurt,
realizing the desperate plight of his
younger companion, by an almost
super-human ofl'ort succeeded in
raising the crushing weight off the
other boy and held it for several
minutes until relief came.
Antone Reis, driving one of the
Kauai Trading Company's trucks
came to their relief and succeeded
in releasing the boys from their
Young Cockett was rushed to the
hospital at Koloa, whore it was
found that his injuries, tho severe,
were not fatal. Aki escaped with
ijoniG nasty cuts about the hands
and wrists, and a sprained back re
ceived in holding the weight of tne
ear off his companion.

A Romantic Career
A very picturesque and interest
ing figure passes off our Hawaiian
stage with the death f Judge John
Lot Kaulukou, the father of A. G.
Kaulukou of Lihuc, in Kona a week
or so igo, at the mature age of 7G.
His life reads like a romance, full
of variety and change, running all
tho way from peddling oranges up
to the Attorney-Generalship. He
was at various times district magis
trate for Koolaupoko; member of
legislature for several terms, part of
the time "speaker of the House; he
was secretary to tho Hawaiian dip
lomatic services in Japan, in which
capacity he helped to secure Japa
nese labor for the Islands. He was
.sheriff of Hawaii ; postmaster gen
eral; attorney general for-the short
term ot ten days; jnarshall of the
ungdom; practising lawyer; and
finally district iudge again, in Kona.
And through it all a most genial
md graceful gentleman of .the older
The story of his life, told in de
tail, with all the realistic touches,
would be a most fascinating romanc
of the days of the Kingdom, a time
now rapidly fading away into the
mists of oblivion
Fine Moving Pictures
The moving pictures this last week
have been excellent; instructive,
artistic, and entirely free from ob
jection from tho point of view of
taste or morals.
The Burton Holmes studies of Al
geria, in color, were a revelation of
the beauty of that country, and of
what tho French have donefor'it in
the way df engineering ; roads bridges
and the like.
The story films were also fine in
their artistic and educational value;
tho one, a story 'of tho Desert, after
the manner of the Garden of Allah,
picturesque and graphic, in charac
ter, costume and event; the other.a
stirring historical romance of the
Indian Mutiny, involving much of
tho story of that great crisis, exceed
ingly well rendered. Such pictures
are both interfiling and instructive
and deserve neatly commendation.
Iliroiehi Kimuraand Shige Kage
hiro were united in marriage by
Hev. J. M. Lydgate at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Win. Hyde Hico Fri
day afternoon, under the patronage
of Mrs. H!ce, and with the family
as witnesses and audience.
It was a very simple but impres
sive service, rendered the more in
teresting by the kindly spirit of co
operation and good will on the part
of the audience. The "contracting
parties" have been trusted servants
of the family for many years, and
the mutual relations are very kind
ly. ' Attention is called to tho Public
Proclamation which is being posted
to the elTcot mat Kauai is under
quarantine, and that no animals
will be allowed to leavo tho island
until farther notice; and all persons
are required to report immediately
any suspicious cases that may come
to their knowledge.
OLD GLORY! say, who,
By the ships and the ore,w, , s
And the long," blended ranks of the gray and .the blue;-
Who gave you, OLD GLORY, the name, that you bear
With such pride everywhere
As you cast yourself free to the rapturous air
And leap out full-lengtlij as we're wanting you to?
"Who gaye you that name, with the ring of the same,
And the honor and fame so becoming to you ?
Your stripes stroked in ripples of white and red.
With your stars at their glittering lcst overhead
By day or by night
Their delightfullest light'
Laughing down from jheir
Who gave you the name of
Who gave you the name of
The old banner lifted, and faltering then .
In .vague lisps and whispers fell silent again.
II . ' ,
OLD GLORY, speak-out! we are asking. about'
How you happened to "favor" a name, so to say,
That sounds so familiar and careless and gay , '
As we cheer it and shout in our wild breezy-way
We the ciowd, every man o.f us, calling you that
( We Tom, Diek and Harry each swinging his hat
And hurrahing' "OLD GLORY I" like you were our kin, -
When Lord! we all know we are as common as sin!
And yet it just seems like you humor us all
And waft us your thanks, as we hail you and fall
Into line, with you over us, waving us on
Where-our glorified, sanctified betters have gone.
And this is the reason we're wanting to know '
(And we're wanting it so! , '
Where our own fathers went we are willing to go )
Who gave you the name OLD GLORY-Oho! . '
Who gave you tho name of OLD GLORV? ' -
Tho old flag unfurled with a billowy thrill ".:
For an instant, then wistfully sighed a'nd was still. -
OLD GLORY: the story we're wanting to hoar,-
Ts what tho plain facts of your christening were,
For your, name just to hear it, ,
Repeat it, and cheer it, is a tang to the spirit
As "salt as a tear;
And seeing you fly, and the boys marching by, ' -' -
There' s a shout in the throat and a blur in' the eye
And an aching to live for you always or "die, 4 N
If. dying, wo still keep you waving on high." - -
And so, by our love
For you, floating above, - "
And the scars of all wars and tho sorrows thereof,
Who gave you the name of OLD GLOlJY', arid why ,
Are we thrilled at the name of OLD GLORY ? , "
Then the old banner leaped, like a sail in tho blast
And fluttered an audible answer at last.
Ami it spake, with a shake of tho voice, and it said: '
By the driven snow-white and the living blood-rgd ' '
Of my bars, and their heaven of stars overhead
By the symbol conjoined of them all, skyward cast,
As I float from the steeple, or flap at the mast,
Or.,droop o'er th) sod whero the long grasses nod,
My name is as old as the glory of God.
.... So 1 came by the name of OLD GLORY.

Unfortunately several of our larce
schools did not compete. Those on- '
tering the lists were Kekaha, Makn-
weh, Eleele, Kalaheo, Koloa, and

that some of the contestants did not
confine themselves imore' closely to
the subject assigned. They sort of
rattled around loose in the various

about the Island in a general way.

credit to the children, and wc thank
them for their cordial cooperation
with us in the matter.
