to their" homes for breakfast.
rho visitors had been assigned to
their hosts on the way down, aboard
the steamer, and had received num
bers accrediting them to automo
biles similarly numbered, drawn
up in order at the landing, so that
or any there need be no confusion
uncertainty. The plan worked to
perfection and received tho enthu
siastic approval of tho visitors. Uv
special arrangement .provision had
been made for the hosts,' or somp
member of the local committees, to
accompany each car as special
guide and mentor,a plan that work
ed out very acceptably.
The Program. Begins at Koloa
Promptly at S o'clock the party
set out from the rendezvous at the
County Building, for Koloa, where
the first scene on the program was
enacted at tho public school, con
'sisting of the impressive flag raising
exercises, singing by tho children,
Senator Poindexter then gave a
most appropriate short address to
the children and the. citizens assem
bled, hi which he emphasized their
privileges, commended their patrio
tism, and enjoined industry, obe
dience and loyalty.
The Wonder of Kukuiolono
Hurrying away frcm hero the
next stop was made af Kukuiolono
Park, passing Kalaheo on the way,
where the school children were
lined up by the road side to give
the- party their enthusiastic greet
ing. Kukuiolono Park with its
mngniticent viows abroad and its
manifold beauties near at hand,
awakened enthusiastic commenda
tion on all sides. It was an un
expected treat the like of which
they had seen nowhere else on their
After encircling the park in va
rious directions and. enjoying its'
charms from the various points of
view, tho party gathered at tho
dainty little reception hall where
thev listened to a brief patri6tic ad
dress from Representative Carter of
The Eleele School
Tho noxt stop was at the Eleele
nohool, one of tho largest and best
r annointed on tho island. Brief ex
ercises by tho children wero fallow
ed by an address by Hep. Welty
after which' tho party visited sev
eral denartments of the school,
being specially- interested in the
Domestic Scienco activities. Do
na rting from here on time, they
were sneedilv conveyed to the end
of tho macadam at Waiawa and back
to the Kekaha mill, one of tho few
mills onUhe islands in operation at
this time of tho year.
A Sugar Mill in Operation
Not having had this oportunity
elsewhere they availed themselves
of it heie with avidity under the
Guidance of Mr. II. P. Fave the
manager: they inspected the various
nnnmtions in the manufacture of
sugar from the crushing of the cano
to the bagging of tlie hnisheu pro
ductal beautiful golden large cry
stalled sugar, tho delicious flavor of
wliinb annealed to the taste as its
'annearanco did to the eye.
As a special novelty, even to ex-
nort sugar men, the recently in
' stalled furnanco for .burning waste
molasses for the sake of its large
nml valuable nor centage of potash
nttracted a good deal of intelligent
attention and interest.
VISIT TO KAUAI
The Welcome call to Lunch
By the time that they had learn
ed the rudiments of sugar manu
facture it was verging on toward
lunch time and everyone responded
very readily to the "all aboard for
Waimea," where a wash ifnri'n few
minutes rest were a welcome pre
liminary to the call for lunch,
served in a specially constructed
lanai artistically decorated and
Tcry comfortably appointed.
The lunch, really a live course
dinner, was excellent both in cui
sine and in sqrvice, reflecting very'
much credit on those who planned
and executed the' wholo affair; it
had the feminine touch and finish
ttyat is not found in the ordinary
commercial service. We under
stand 'Mrs. KahlGaum and Mrs.
Brandt were behind it, and indeed
all through it.-
A very congenial spirit of good
fellowship pervaded the occasion
and there was much kindly banter
and repartee mixed with more or
less serious suggestion and advice
on both sides as to lroniesteads,
harbors,- race problems," patriotism
Reception on the Lawn
Following the lunch tho party
adjourned to the grounds of the

days ago, after their teaehers had
told them about the poor litth Bel

by the plantation some of the child
