The lanl i rif; with rumors of spins and preader of anthrax
K'Trri", anl poion purvvor, anl tale rx-arfr, until one hardly trusts
hi own kith anl kin. Anl any one wlto depart? in the least from the
conventional way of life, who dots Strang thing-", or goes to strange
plaef-c, or asks Strang'; question bf-comcs at once the object of frrave
suspicion. Heretofore such a prron would be thought merely a
"crank," now he is a spy. An amusing instance of this sort of thing
has occurred lately.
A Waipahoehoe there is a x)iv teacher, a rnaidn lady of rather
original and peculiar views, who is filled with admiration for the primi
tive Hawaiian, the primitive life and the ancient lore of ""an innocent
and delightful people," oblivious to the fr-t that the primitive Hawaii
an and his primitive life are long 'ince a thing of.the past.
However, she devotes a great deal of her spare time to poking
about in strange place and consorting with strange people, that are not
supposed to be suitable for a maiden lady. This has led jx-ople, more
or I,of all c1:i-m-, to hok on her with a certain measure of suspicion
a-a "little of!."
KecMitly, it being vacation, she availed herself of her leisure to
make a somewhat extended tour thr.f.gli the country, he . went to
Waipio fir-t, and spent some time there, cainpii g out in solitary sim
plicity, or living with the Oriental.- t Hawaiians. getting the real flavor
of the simple life. Then !-L move! on up to Waitnea, with intent to
do the same s'rt of tiling there.
Now the only approval way t' get to Wairnea from anywhere on
the Hamakua side is by way .f the pjrular Government Road up from
Honokua; and "D thi rad there i- a barred gate across the way, with
an armed guard, whi hi -Ids up every p;iser-by, and puts hirn through a
rigid cr--s examination as to f ! r.teeedents arid consefjuents ; as to who
he is, and where he is going, and why he is going, and who will vouch
for his character, etc. e'c. : all this by way of precaution against an
thrax distributors and other malicious characters.
And our maiden lady, lover ! the pimple life and the primitive
way, avoided all tlj i by the simple expedient of going to Waimea afoot,
along the old Mud Lane road, which was of course much more direct for
her than the long detour by the regular Government Road, as well as
much closer to the heart of nature. This was a suspicious evasion, if
not a flagrant defiance, of a notable provision for public safety which
set pen pie to talking. And when a little later she was found in a big
paddock containing about half the stock of the Parker Ranch, making
her way across lots to Maria, with the cattle stampeding to right and
left at the untoward sight of any one afx)t, it was more than official
patience could stand, and she was promptly arrested, conveyed to Wai
rnea, and there put in jail, after being subjected to a searching exami
nation, physical as well &: oral; an examination that was all the more
searching berau-c she refused to inke any explanation or give the
authorities any satisfaction.
However, as absolutely no incriminating evidence, or eVen indica
tion could be found, she was finally released and despatched back to
Waipahoehoe with strict instructions not to stir from there without Ihe
express permission of the deputy sheriff.
We met her some days later l.-ing conveyed toward Waipahoehoe
in a rough wagon, so perhaps she had escaped again and had been re
captured. All this will make fine material fur a book of personal experience
which she may be moved to write and which she may conclude to call
"The New Freedom in Hawaii."
Their Contribution to the War
The Windward Coast of Hawaii has taken the War much mors
seriously than we have thus far. In the matter of war' contributions of
money, of medical and surgical supplies for the wounded, and most
significant of all in volunteer offerings of young uien, the war enthu
siasm seems to have cut much deeper than here with us ' '
Much of the financial contribution has been made quietly and pri
vately through individual channels, and has amounted in many cases
to a real sacrifice. Many men on the plantations, and in other lines of
business on a salary, have lwen contributing, for some time now. a very
considerable proportion of that salary while many more have not In-en
content with this very generous proxy service, but have riot been able to
turn a deaf ear to the call of Country which bids them ."Go, go, on
the other side the world you're overdue," and have pulled up stakes
So general has this exodus been that the plantation managers corn
plain that they are very much handieapied by the wholesale depart
ures, leaving responsible positions that cannot easily be filled.
fn addition to this devotion on the part -of the men, the women
seem to be working most of the time knitting mufflers, rolling bandages
and cutting aid folding surgical dressings; this besides the regular
meeting one day a week for work in common for these patriotic pur
poses. The energies of the communities are divided letween the two
agencies, the Allied War Relief and the Red Cross, with the former, it
would seem, very much in the lead. This duplicating of agencies is
considered a good thing, since it interests more people; 'what does not
appeal to one, does to another.
It is sai'l that the burden of the war has come home to people
sufficiently to cut into social extravagance and lavish entertaining quite
perceptibly. The 'reasonable amenities of social life continue, to be
sure, but in a very moderate way; there are small affairs, teas, lunches,
dinners and card partus, but nothing on a large scale; the large affairs
are for the purpose of raising money for war relief purposes.
Ideal By Comparison
Referring to the Drouth on Hawaii in another column, it is a satis
faction to note the exceptionally fine summer we have had hereon Kau
ai. Not in a quarter of a century have we had a more ideal summer
than this has been; never in that time has the Island been greener, or
the conditions for agriculture more favorable. This will mean a gener
ous crop next year.

II JESS. !.
IT is impossible to build
better tires than Mich
elins at any price. How,
then, is it possible to sell
Michelin Tires at prices
actually below the average?
lit Michelin invented the pneu
matic automobile tire in 189S
nd ever since has concentrated
on the production oi pneumatic
2nd Because "Economical
Efficiency" is the watch-word ol
Ihe Michelin organization. Ex
penditures resulting in better tires
or ultimate saving are cheeriully
made, but otherwise scrupulously
avoided. Resulting economies
are passed oa to Micbdin users.
