Kauai, The Garden Island.
In the midst of the mighty Pacific
at the crossroads of steamer routes
are situated the Hawaiian Islands
which are of great commercial im
fourth in size, the oldtst and
most beautiful of the eight in
habited islands, is Kauai, the
"Garden Island." It has been so
called on account of its numerous
waterfalls, rivers, valleys, canyons
rich soil, climate and dense yege-
Susar cane and rice raising are
the most important industries.
The waterfalls are magnificient.
The Minehaha Falls are at Hana
peoe and one has to cross the falls
twenty-two times on horseback
The ferns and trees that grow
around the Wailua and Waipahee
Falls add a great deal to the
Some of the grandest valleys in
the world are to be found here
They are deep and long and con
tain large rivers.
The Olokele canyon, the Wai
mha and Hanalei valleys are ot
unsurpassed beauty. Hanalei is
one of the most picturesque parts
on our isle, The view looking
down into the gulch with the river
winding through the ricehelds in
the foreground, the bay and green
clad peaks is marvellous. The
largest stream on Kauai is at Ha
nalei where its navigable for sev
eral miles, All rice grown in this
valley is transported in boats.
Rice and cattle raising are the
chief industries here.
Just about two miles above tht
Wainiha valley is situated the
Waiuiha Power house.
At Haena there is to be seen one
A nature's greatest work; the wet
and dry caves. The wet caves are
filled with sweet water and one
has to explore them bv means of a
acnoe which is now broken.
A very large lighthouse is at
Kilauea, situated below it is, a
small island called Mokuaeae.
Lihue is the county seat of
Kauai. The wireless station, the
Lihue High School, the county
Building, the Tip Top theater,
branch of the Bank of Hawaii, an
immense store, a post office, the
armory, the park, and other large
liuildings are to seen here.
The Tuberculosis Hospital is at
Waimea, Eleele, Koloa, Mc
Brvde, Makaweli, Kealia, Kapaa
and Lihue are large sugar planta
tions. The Kukuiolono park at Kala
heo is very beautiful. It is some
what like "The Moanalua Tea
Gardens" on Oahu, .The abun
dant growth of flowers makes the
place very scenic. Chrysan
themums, gardeniers, carnations,
dragon mouths, roses, hibiscus
and all varieties of flowers are
here. There is also a very large
fernery. The pineapples that grow
on the slopes of the hills, the
driveway into the paik between
those stately pines, little nooks
and tea houses are all magnificent.
At Mana are the Barking Sands
which make a variety of sounds
when people slide down the sand
hills and walk on it. This is the
hottiest phce on Kauai.
Nawiliwili Bay is the most im
portant port on our island fot
small-sized vessels, and Port Allen
on the leeward side for deep water
Therefore, Kauai is worth a few
days of any tourists time.

Kauai the "Garden Island":
Kauai is called the "Garden Is
land" because it is green all over.
It has green trees and the grass is
always green. Many flowers grow
on this island too. It has uiuny
gulches grander and longer than
any other island of this group.
There are no barren places on
Kauai. It has a few parks but
they are beautifully fixed up
Kauai has many hills and moun
tains, and also many valleys,
These mountains have trees grow
ing on them and all the trees are
green. The hills have cane, pine
apples and grass growing on them
besides trees. Wailua and Hana
pepe have some beautiful water
falls and cataracts falling. "Ku
kuiolono park" is very beautiful
it has many sweet smelling flow
ers. It seems a big park to those
who have never seen a biggersOne
It is said that there is no island
all over so green as Kauai the
The "Olokele Canyon" is
very high and long canyon, it is
one ot the longest canyons on the
islands. It is in Waimea.
There are many canehelds on
Kauai, they are prettv to look at
from a distance especially when
they are in bloom. The ricefields
are nearly always in valleys where
there is plenty of water at hand
If we stand on any dirt we are
sure to have a fine sight. Kauai
is like a little garden and the sea
looks as it it were the river to
water it Some of the hills ex
tend right down to the sea' If
we were to get into an aeroplane
high up in the sky what a beauti
ful sihgt it would be to see all the
green spots and the houses peep
ing out of them. Some of the
people cultivate vegetables, and it
looks funny if we stand on a high
hill to see these little people work
ing in the sun. Many flowers
grow along the roaas on some
places. Everything is so beauti
ful on this island. So this is whv
it is called the "Garden Island."
Hawaii and the Liberty Loan
Hawaii lias it seems more than
done its duty in the matter of the
Liberty Loan, having subscribed for

though at the end there were a great
many small subscribers who joined
the lists. There were in all 1040
Those of us who didn't get 1n
lis time, and Dresumablv there
were a lot of us, will probably have
mother chance later.
In the construction of airplanes
all shock absorbing devices are of
rubber. According to an official.of
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co..
which makes everything in rubber
for air craft, steel springs are not
suitable for airplanes, because they
"kick" back when loaded. So
rubber is used. Rubber is an ideal
shock absorber in that it gives" to
the load and resumes its shape

matter what mnv happen,
you know that you are rea
sonably sure of being able to J
