The Garden Island is In receipt of
a little booklet with tthe above title by
Benjamin C. Woodbury of Honolulu.
There is so much bungling and clumsy
work done in poetry, so much verse
published that reminds the reader pf
rough plowed ground, that it is a re
lief to get hold of some that is smooth
and regular, and technically faultless.
The sonnett is the most difficult of all
forms of verse, and Woodbury's con
tribution bespeaks much skill in this
Furthermore there is a commenda
ble dignity about these sonnets, and
an earnestness of purpose which dis
tinguish them from much of the flip
pant gush that is current these days.
PUBLIC AUCTION OF LANDS
Next Saturday at 10 o'clock A. M.,
there will be a public auction at the
Lihue Court House, of lands held for
delinquent taxes in Lihue District.
The offerings consist of a couple of
taro patches near the coconut grove
at Wailua Bridge, and a house lot in
side the grove.

dimmed lights, and there are numer

Driving with bright lights, and, in
some cases, with searchlights, Is a
dangerous practice. It is simply good
luck that there are no serious acci

The soldiers" sc.r.ip books have not
worked out quite as they were ex
pected to. The supposition was that
the children would be able to make
them up hunt up the pictures, cut
them out, paste them in. sign up the
title pigo iiiiil turn them In to tiie
various tenchers. and th.it it would a'l
be a delightful recreation for them.
Uut that is not the way it works out
at all. By common consent of those

pupil isn't equal to the Job in any one
of Its stages; and when CO or 100 of
these books are assigned to a school
to make up it means that the burden
falls on the overworked teachers. To
make up one of these books properly
takes three or four hours of painstak
ing work; to have ten or a dozen of
them imposed on you, in addition to
all the other demands of every day
life and war work service, is a seriouB
Doubtless there will be a very con
siderable range In character and
quality of the books, but many of them
are very dainty and very attractive.
Many of them naturally and wisely
will be largely devoted to the Islands,
and will be instructive as well as
artistic. One book Is devoted to the
Volcano, others to the Island of Kauai,
or the other Islands; others to the
Bugar business, pineapple culture, etc.
The very beautiful color prints of
the Paradise of the Pacific special
numbers add very much to the at
tractiveness of many of the books;
lucky are they that have them.
RAIN FLOODS OUT SCHOOL
The heavy rain yesterday made
things so disagreeable In the Lihue
School (rooms being flooded from
leaking roofs), that school was dis
missed at the instance of supervising
principal Bernice Hundley; a request
to do so having reached her from Miss
M. Castro, the district nurse, who
found children and teachers wet and
