The death of Rev. Hans Isenberg
removes from our midst a leading
figure in our local landscape. In his
manifold capacity as a man of large
means, plantation director, philan
thropist and pastor, he has naturally
and necessarily filled a largo place In
He has always been a strong per
sonality, with clear-cut convictions
and definite intentions, In the defense
of which ho was always frank, fearless
and outspoken. You always knew
where he stood; and he was never on
the fence. Those about him some
times found it necessary to question
the wisdom of his conclusions; none
could question the honesty of them.
He was ever, we believe, unswerving
ly loyal to the truth and the right as
he saw it. His virtues were of that
sterling, rugged quality that enters so
largely into the make-up of the heroic
figures in any community. With the
furtive, pussy-footing, time-serving
qualities of doubtful compromise and
concession he had no patience; he was
ever for plain words and honest poli
cies. On the other hand, he was a man
f tender sympathies, and where those
sympathies were stirred or the cause
aemed to him a worthy one, he was
a man of large philanthropies. He
gave on principle, not weakly, as the
easiest way to got rid of an applicant
To his own people he was a father
a sort of lesser Providence, with the
firmness as well as the kindnotss of a

funeral were very real, and very
PALU ABLE IMPROVEMENTS.
Lest many of our readers may fall
to read the report of the recent meet
ing of the County Supervisors, we beg
to call attention to some of the pro
posed improvements suggested there
in. In the mater of road construction
they have in mind, as evidenced by
the estimates, the following Important
A new Mana road four miles of
more or less new location, with mecad
amizing, bridges, culverts, etc., to
cost approximately 130,000.
The completion of the work already
begun through Makawell, which will
make an Ideal pieeo of road in that
Rebuilding three miles of road be
tween Wahiawa and Lawai, and as
phalting the same, to cost about
Macadamizing the Kukulolono road
and around the railroad station. '
Rebuilding one mile in the Koloa
Gap, to cost about $5,000.
Mecadamlzlng the Halehaka-Malu-malu
road. Rebuilding one mile of
the Hanamaulu-Wallua road. Re
building road between the Lihue Mill
and the school.
Macadamizing the Kapaa school
road. Macadamizing the Hanalel
Besides this there are some im
portant undertakings in the way of
bridge reconstruction to be accom
plished during the year.
The concrete bridges at Koloa near
the old mill. Four concrete bridges
on the short-cut road. Concrete piers
and abutments for a new bridge at
Wallua. and the same at Wainiha;
also a new bridge at Lumahal.
In addition to this special new Work
the current policy of oiling or asphalt
ing all the roads will be continued.
It is with much satisfaction that
we caH attention to these improvements.
THE FUTILITY OF BITTERNESS.
Our attention has been called to a
communication from Rev. Chas. F.
Dole in the Boston Herald in w hich he
deprecates any display of bltterr.es--.
or vindictlvenass on the part of the
United States in the conduct of the
war, maintaining that anv such at
titude only prolongs the war and
makes the return of peace that much
In so far we agree with Mr. Dole;
but we have fallen on abnormal and
trying times, when human nature Is
more or less wrenched from its moor
ings, and when the gentler virtues
will be tested to the utmost. This is
on of the unfortunate but unavoid
able fruits of the war, the amplifica
tion of hatred and bitterness. Much
as we regret it we may not avoid it.
Men are swept away as in a flood ; we
must be patient and forbearing, and
hope for a speedy return to a more
fraternal frame of mind.
LET US BE THANKFUL.
Not the least of our mercies this
winter season is the beautiful weather
we are enjoying. Whllo we read of
phenominally bitter cold on the Main
land and elsewhere with a coal short
age in many sections and much suffer
ing in consequence, we are enjoying
brilliant and balmy days flooded with
Bunshlne and resplendent with beauty.
To be sure, the nights are a little
chill at times, and an extra blanket
is a luxury, but what is 55 .or seven
50 compared -with 30 below zero.
HOW TO HAVE GOOD TEETH
If parent desire their children to
have sound and strong teeth, they
must begin to take precautions long
before it is time for any teeth to
appear. Babies, like the rest of us,
can only build up their bodies from
such material as is given them. If
a baby's food is deficient In quantity
or quality, that deficiency will cause
defects in teeth and hair and nails,
as well as a lack of bodily vigor.
The breast fed baby has by far the
best chance of having the right sort
of bone substance, and therefore of
having good teeth. The disease known
as rickets Is a form of malnutrition
that interferes with the proper growth
of the bones, and the presence of
rickets sometimes first manifests it
self by delay in the appearance of
the teeth. If. therefore, a child that
otherwise seems to be fairly well, does
not begin to cut his teeth at the usual
age. be should be taken to a physician,
for probably he is not getting the
Scurvy rickets is allied to ordinary
rickets, but is less common. It is
also a disease of wrong feeding, and
means that the child does not have
enough fresh vegetable food. It also
affects the formation of the teeth by
making the gums spongy and inclined
to ulcerate. Fresh fruit Juice, such
as that of oranges, and a little mashed
potato in the child's milk will work
wonders with this disorder.
Absolute cleanliness of the baby's
mouth and gums and of everything
that he is permitted to put into his
mouth is very important. Until a
child is old enough to be taught to
cleanse the mouth by rolling a mouth
wash round in it, his mother or his
nurse should make a small, clean pled
get of cotton and gently but thorough
ly wash the gums with a mild anti
septic tooth wash. As soon as the
child can be taught to hold and to
use a small toothbrush, give him one
and teach him to use It every night
and morning and. if possible, after
each meal. The night brushing is
most important of all, for germs and
particles of food lodge between the
teeth and have time to do much mis
chief during the long hours of sleep.
Sugar is bad for the teeth because
sugar turns to an acid in the mouth,
and that acid works on and injures
the enamel coating of the teeth. It
would be an excellent thing if all
people, adults and children alike, were
careful always to brush their teeth
thoroughly and to use a mouth wash
after eating candy.
Children should be taken regularly
to the dentist, and a decayed tempo
rary tooth should never be permitted
to remain by the side of a permanent
one. lest it infect the sound tooth
