Miss Mabel Wilcox, who loft Kauai
last July to outer tho American lied
Cross Nursing Service, writes Inter
estingly of her work in France. Cros
sing the Atlantic in December, she
proceeded to Paris, where she spent
Christmas, and in January was sent
to Lo Havre, where tho American
Red Cross, in conjunction with the
Belgian Hod CroBS Commission, is
organizing relief work amongst child-
ren and refugees. Not only are tho
Belgian and Flemish people to be
aided, but the French government has
requested that tho Americans un
dertake the work there for the poor
and needy French people. Miss Wil
cox writes that Lo Havre, with its
shipping and military bases, and
troops going and coming has a far
more military aspect than Paris.
Some idea of tho congestion in the
city may bo grasped from the state
ment which she makes that since
- the war began Lo Havre has doubled
its population and not a single new
thoBelgian Government is errocting
portablo lipusos in the outskirts of
,tho city, which lator on may be mov
ed iip into Belgium, as that country
is re-occupied. '
In the latter part of March Miss
Wilcox was in Paris again to secure
supplies and to meet Miss Ethel Da
mon of Honolulu, who had crossed
over to go into tho Canteen Service,
but who, by arrangement was trans
forred on arrival to the Bed Cross

Miss Wilcox in the work there. The
two ladies were in Paris during some
of the worst air raids and long range
gun bombardments of tho city. Early
in April, they were back again in Le
Havre, and Miss Wilcox writes on
April 14th as follows:
"We aro now quite busy. We have
dispensary hours from 9 to 12, and
then home visits in the afternoons.
Dr. Park has a Belgian nurse who
speaks French, Flemish and English
to" go with him to visit tho Belgians,
and so far Ethel and I have taken
tho French cases. At tho present
rate of progress, we will soon have
X to have tho Dispensary open all day
and double or triple our workers.
Dr. Bothholz, a woman doctor, whom
Dr. Park sent for, has been in Paris
two months trying to get her papers
to come up here. I hope she will get
thorn soon and join us. Our Dispen

Kauai is to bo treated to one of the
greatest treats that she has ovor had,
tho coming, and tho talks of Captain
Pequegnat and Mr. Sherman, tho Y.
M. C. A. workers who have just re
turned from tho front, but recently.
Mr. Sherman Is not only a great
orator, In tho hlgllest and most
comprehensive sonso of the word; ho
Is a great actor, a tragedirfh, who
sweeps his hearers with him against
their will. Ho Is more than a word
painter. Ho does more than pneturo
n battle-field; he takes you to tho
battlefield, and when ho starts back,
with his hand over his eyes you see
with him hundreds and hundreds of
reeling men, shattered, bleeding
torn, maddened by shell shock. You
hear the whizz-bang; you feel tho
hiss of tho bullets, almost, you smell
the awful gasscs. Your really lm
magino that you aro on the battle
field with him.
Captain Pequegnat served three
years and a half on tho west front
with the Canadians, finally being put
out of commission by a boche gas
attack which laid him out uncon
scious for five days. He does not
(lgure that he Is out of It entirely
however, and plans to roturn to the
lines when his furlough ends.
He is declared to be an entertainer
of raro power, and certainly is ono

AS HE SWAM IN
For Sale at the Sheriff's Office, one
perfectly good, unswornto Warrant
for Assault and Battery.
Last Friday morning, a Japanese
rushed into tho office of the Sheriff,
looking as though the whole German
army was persuing him. After look
ing suspiciously In the corners and
under the table he finally managed to
tell tho Sheriff that ho wanted -a war
rant for tho arrest of one, Captain
Matsuda of Sampan No. 79.
After much questioning it was
found out that he was a member of
the crew of that boat and that on
the evening before tho Captain had
imbibed a llttlo to much Saki and
had chased him all over tho boat.
The other members of tho crew had
tried to stop the Captain from taking
tho lifo blood of our hero, but wore
unavailing in their efforts. So fin
ally when the Captain ha'd him cor
nered, he, decided that ho would rath
or be a "Jonah" and so left the sam
pan (vla tho water route. Ho said
that wh'lle -ho was In the water that
he could feci tho sharks rubbing up
against him as ho swam. Ater bat
tling with the waves for about an
hour and a half ho made a landing
near the llghthouso and, then came
to tho Sheriff for protection.
So while Ihe stenographer was
making the warrant ready another
Japanese sliowded up and immediat
ely commenced to toll the Sheriff that
he had lost a man overboard in the
harbor. By putting two and two to
gether the Sheriff came to tho con
clusion that he had the missing sam
pan Captain, and so escorted him in
to the presense of our hero. Thoy
held a conversation for several min
utes and finally started, to leave tho
olllce. But, said the Sheriff, "how
about this warrant, it is already for
you to go before the Judge and swear
to it. "No. no," said the first Japan
ese, (he is not our hero any longer)
"he come all right and get me, it he
no como ttu?n wo have paper and go
get him." And then they went away
together peacefully and happily.

Sweaters and Socks
are Greatest Need
Knitters should spocd up the pro
duction of socks, and sweaters, says
the local Bed Cross. Tho American
army in France is increasing and
the men need the knitted articles
when they are In the trenches.
Tho call has come to disregard
such articles as helmets and mufflers
for the time being and to concen
trate on turning out sweaters and
socks as faBt as possible. The Bed
Cross wishes to send a shipment to
tho Coast on the next boat and to
follow that with a shipment ovory
veek until the Red Cfross headquart
ers at Washington is satisfied. Then
Hawaii will Bend a few more to be
sure that there Is not some over
looked' Sammie shivering on tho fire
step of a trench In Franco.
Sweaters and Socks thoso are
the articles most needed by tho
boys ovor there.

MARY W. CBAWFOBD
The glad word, It was glad word
for some, came to tho commander of
the National Guard on Kauai to com
mence to mobilize last Saturday.
While the most of tho plantation
managers will be caught in the labor
situation, they havo had some llttlo
timo In which to prepare for this
emergency and as several of thom
said, when approached on the labor
subject, "If the government needs
them I guess that we can get along
This is the rlgh t way for the
plantation people to look at tho sit
uation and wo arc glad that thoy
show this spirit, for the government
certainly does need tho mon othor
vise It would not call on them to
leave their positions and answer tho
call to colors.
When we count up the men on
Kauai that aro in the guard wo find
that there aro nearly 600 that havo
answered this call. Of the planta
tions that are close to Lihue, tho Li
hue Plantation will be hit the hardest
loosing somewhere in tho neighbor
hood of 125 men, then come Hanama
ulu with about CO men. Of course
there are other plantations that will
loose a groat many men but wo wero
unable to find out the exact figures.
No one seems to know Just when
tho boys will leave for Honolulu or
just what thoy will do when they
got there. However wo prosumo
that thoy will undergo a course of
Intensive training and then be UBd
to replace the regular army for guard
duty around Honolulu.
Up to the time- of going to presi
no word had boon received about
tho draft and we are going to guess
again on this subject, and that la,
that it won't be called until the
guard is fully organized and then It
will bo recruited up to full war
strength from the draft.
