Making Kitchen Police
The top sergeant of military com
pany from time Immemorial has been
"up against it" to find enough in
fractions of discipline to punlBh his
men with tho "kitchen pollco" detail.
Kitchen police means scrubbing
greasy and soot covered cooking uten
sils, peeling potatoes, dish washing
and so on through a long list of dis-
agreoablo tasks utterly devoid of any
pomp and glory of war.
Modern warfare mixed with strictly
enforced food conservation, however,
has at last given the much foared
"top" what ho has long been looking
for. That any infraction of tho
Army's strict enforcement of all food
conservation rules furnished a long
"kitchen pollco" sentence is shown
by tho following extract from a letter
of a recruit at the Presidio, San Fran
cisco: "Then tho buglo blew, and wo were
called in for our first meal cooked by
Uncle Sam. A long line is formed,
leading past a counter after tho stylo
of a cafeteria. Everything from boup
tonuts goes on the one plate. There
are not many different helpings, but
they are all well cooked, wholesome
and generous. Ono has to eat all he
allows tho kitchen police to put on
his plate or he is given ten days as
kitchen police. Bread larger than ah
inch square and meat the same size
could not pass tho eye of tho guards
In front of whom wo had to go on our
way to wash our dishes. The list
was posted each evening of those
who had to servo us kitchen police
tho following day."
A RARE BIRD
Tho native Hawaiian bird Hwi, a
dainty little red bird about the size
of a rice bird, or a little larger, has
been seen during tho last few days
flitting about our gardens, where it
is very much of a stranger. It is ono
of the most beautiful of Hawaiian
birds, to 'bo found under ordinary
circumstances only in the mountains,
or the depths of the forest, but soniO'
times in tho winter It seeks tho lower
levels to get away from the storm
and tho chill of inclement weather. It
has a curved and pointed bill, like a
humming bird, with which It sucks
honey from tho throats of the flowers,
and extracts bugs and beetles from

A. Rice, after an absence of a dozen
years or more. Mrs Wilkonson, as

Some time back Judge Lylo Dickey
admitted Valentino Cobacha to citlzon
ship without question under tho Act
of Congress of May 9, 1918. U. S.
District Attorney S. C. Huber now
contests tho validity of this citizen
ship on the ground that Cobacha, is
not a "free white person" nor person
of African descent.-
Cobacha is well and favorably
known on KauaJ and tho outcome of
tho case will be watched with interest.
