T!i;ink you very much for tin pleasure yon jiivp me in
hnitinjr me 1o see t lie first run of your jiriuiiu War Drama,
'Tlie Sjiy., It is tin- La Tosca of lilm, so tcrrilile iiml thrilling
in its climax that I felt as if I t-uuld scarcely endure it, ami
yet wild horses could not have torn me away from it.
In 'The Spy' yon have done more than make an interest ing
play. You have rendered the Country a great patriotic service,
for its propaganda is of the kind thai will go sthaight to every
heart and stir every latent drop of patriotism in it.
If I were I'ncle Sam I should order every playhouse in
the land to run it until I had all tin- volunteers I needed.

TOU is a standard article aud there
is no question of its elTectiveness.
This can ho proven beyond ques
tion ly watching the results of
operation, hut no matter how
good a remedy may be, lack of
interest or carelessness ill its appli
cation necessarily detracts from re

that von follow directions on pack
age and the destruction of the ant
colony is guatanted.

The Flies in the Ointment
The film romance entitled "Hidden
Pearls shown on Kauai during the last
week is an uncommonly picturesque
and interesting production. The plot
is novel and original; the acting in
the main, good; the pictures clear and
well balanced; and, most of all, the
setting is beautifully picturesque and
striking. The shore scenes along the
Puna coast, in the neighborhood of
Kalapana, with the wealth of coconut
trees, puhla, and tree fern; the rock
bound coast swept by the dashing,
gleaming surf; the outrigger canoes
embarking and landing in the surf;
and the tawny figures of the native
swimmers; all makes a very charming
background for the South Sea ro
mance. When all the essential elements are
so very commendable it is a pity that
more careful attention had not been
given to some of the minor details to
make them true to life, and that more
of the distinctive life of the Pacific
had not been introduced.
For instance: At one point in the
story the pe;irls are carefully hidden
away with impressive secrecy, to pre
vent their being stolen or otherwise
tampered with. And to keep them
safe they were pat into what seems
to be a round paper box or cracker tin,
and then buried in the ground. Now
everyone knows that the proper South
Sea receptacle for anything of that
kind would be a calabash or a joint oi
bamboo. The pearls too, didn't look
quite true to life as we know pearls,
they looked very much like Irish
potatoes and about the size of those
In spite of a good many bona fide
Kalapana school children aud a num
ber of rather moth-eaten old crones
that were manifestly Hawaiian,
though degenerate, there is a decided
ly "haole" cast to the personnel which
rather jars on the sense of harmony.
A few really fine types of Hawaiians
in some of the more Important roles
would have added materially to the
effectiveness of the production.
The costuming also is rather too
much cheap "haole" instead of genu
ine llawaiiau or South Sea. With
the display of so much bareness, verg
ing on nudity, on the movie stage in
other lines where it is more or less
out of place, there can surely be little
objection to an approach to the light
costume of ancient times. There is
scarcely a single malo clad fisherman
in the lot, and the heroine goes about
in a tawdry, left over, haole skirt in
stead of the grass skirt of real life.
Much moro use might have been
made of interesting Hawaiian cus
toms and industries, such as tapa
making, poi pounding, throw-net fish-
ing, canoe sailing, etc.
If those "Malihini" enthusiasts,
from play writers to missionaries, who
colne here to depict old Hawaiian life,
and to reform old Hawaiian character,
and who arc. no apt to "know it all"
after a few weeks of superficial ex
p ience, would only consult the peo
ple who live here and have known
about these things from childhood
up, they would save themselves from
many glaring mistakes and would be
in a position to know and depict
things as they really are.

AS TO RICHARD L. HALSEY
Au interested public may be glad
to know that Mr. Halsey is by educa
tion and experience a minister of the
gospel and an attorney at law, as well
as Inspector of Immigration. The
former accounts for his easy comnund
of Holy Writ and facility as a speaker,
and the fact that he was for ye.ir.-t
engaged in educational and mission-' t
ary work in Japan accounts for hi i ,
command of the Jnpine-ie language.
A long line of st iunch New England j
ancestors, many of position and re j
nown, accounts for his enthusi.'.iti.: j
AT LIHUS UNION
In the Lihue Tnion Church on Sun
day, in response to special request to
all the churches from the Federal
Commissioner of Education Claxton,
the sermon was devoted to the signal
importance of keeping our education
al institutions at the highest level of
efficiency during the war, and of en
couraging our boys to complete their
education as fully as in times of
Mrs. J. I. Booge and Miss Annette
Booge left by the Kinau for a four
month's trip to the Coast. They have
not been off the Island, not even as
tar as Honolulu, in the past five years.
Civil Engineer Lowrie, who has
done a good deal of work for the
government on Kauai, was on the
Island for a. few days last week with
the Harbor Commission party.
Mr. F. U. Tracy of Kapaa, has
given up raising pines on his sixty
acre homestead. He is going into
cane instead, and has already planted
the greater part of his homestead to
this crop. Mr. Tracy has made the
change because conditions are not
favorable for pines on that part of the
Kapaa Homesteads whore ho is locat
ed. With commendable efficiency J. M.
Kaueakua took the voting lists, bal
lots and other voting paraphnalia for
the Kauai draftees, to Honolulu, with
everything all made ready for immedi
ate use. This will relieve the inspec
tors of election of much work, and
they appreciate the efficient fore
thought very much.
Only the simple life is honorable or
even decent to-day.
