There are a good many people
to wlioiu tin? moving picture has
hecome a lialiit. It will be a sac
rilice to ilo without it. There are
some tew people to whom the
weekly church service has become
a habit they will miss it.
There are some people perhaps
who do not believe that it is at
all necessary to close up these and
other similar places of entertain
ment. In a matter as serious as one
of these great epidemics it is best
to be on the safe side, and the
safer the better. Uetter be over
careful for a few weeks if need be,
and put np with a reasonable
measure ot inconvenience, if there
by we lessen the ravages of the
disease, and shorten the period
of it's stay.
And remember the old adage
"An ounce of prevention is better
than a pound of cure."

We urgently advise all our read

instructions issued by Ihe Hoard
of Health and published in anoth

of the advent of Hie disease so
that you may know tit once what
to do in case of the development
of the disease. Many communi

Editor, Garden Island Since Mr.
Santos has issued an open challenge
to prove that he has ever "solicited
insurance during working hourB," I
Ih'K to olter this defense in support of
1 will not ask him to accept my
mere word of contradiction, but wish
to refresh his memory and refer him
to Mr. .Marques of Honolulu, also to
Mr. Zeno Myers, manager of Home
Insurance Co., whom Mr. Santos ac
companied around the island upon
separate occasion's; the latter gentle
man introducing our postmaster as
their representative. If these two
gentlemen will deny these facts then
we shall be willing to accept Mr.
Santos' word as the truth.
Mr. Santos states that he does "not
loose any sleep," which statement is
amply born out. It would be better
for the public's interest if he did
forego a little.
Does Mr. Santos remember a politi
cal round with the Republican candi
date Soufla, nothwistanding he holds
otlice under the Democratic adminis
tration? Probably he also forgets
this, as he apparently does the in
The following was received too late
for last issue:
Editor, Garden Ialand In regard to
the Lihue postollice. Haven't we been
a little spoiled in the past? Before Mr.
Santos took charge we had the service
of several well qualified clerks during
rush times a service, which I under
stand, was not paid for with money
allowed the postmaster for running
expenses. This happy condition ex
isted a long time, and yet some of us
had grievances, or thought we had.
The man probably does not live who
could conduct a pestofiica any length
of time and please everybody.
Mr. Crawford had unusual resources.
Mr. Santos hasn't. He must conduct
his office with such assistance as the
government allows him. To conduct
it on American lines is evidently Mr.
Santos' aims. There are altogether
too many postofliees on Hawaii that
are not conducted on American lines.
I have been a patron of several plan
tation postoflices during the past fif
teen years and the following conver
sation that took place in a Maui post
office some years ago seems to sum
up the situation very well indeed in
a few of them:
An announcement had just been
tacked up on the wall and a Japanese
laborer seemed much interested, but
Japanese (to Portuguese mule driv
er): "What kind speak this palapala?"
Portuguese (with desire to be help
ful and obliging): "This palapala
r.peak first class mail, number one
mail, number two mail, number three
mail, number four mail, every kind
Japanese: "No can sabe number
one mall, number two mail. Too much
like sabe. Xo can."
Portuguese: (with great earnest
ness 1 "This kind, number one mail
too much wikiwiki Balwin catchem;
number two mail leele wikiwiki I
think schoolteacher, store boss get'em;
number three mail, luna he catch'em;
number four mail no more wikiwiki
Japanese, Portigee, Pako Any
body." Naturally we all want our mail
all of our mail as quickly as we can
get it, but when the postmaster con
siders four classes of patrons rather
than four classes of mail, someone
has to sufi'er us a result of others get
ting extra prompt service.

upon the 13 acres described in the
article referred to above for the pur
pose of rice cultivation." Mr. Case,
in a general way, encouraged all rice
planters to grow rice with the "under
standing that such was the wish of
the Land Department and further,
parties in the valley received letters
from Mr. Rivenburgh to the effect
that the rice men could plant rice.
Such was the general authority under
which we planter rice.
Mr. Pereira further says, "Just as
he was about to plow up this land, I
gave him notice by the authority of
the Land Department not to proceed
any further, etc." He came to me
about 5:30 p. m. on Jan. 9th and told
me not to put in water. The land was
all plowed except V acre. I ignored
his notice for I saw nothing authori
tative about it and I eee that the
Acting Land Commissioner says that
he did not authorize Mr. Pereira to
so notify me.
And further in his article says that,
"It would be much better to lease this
land to a citizen." I am a native born
citizen, born at Kilauea, Kauai, Ha
waii, on April 24th, 1897. I was in
class A-l and was waiting to join
Uncle Sam's Army. If I am not mis
taken, Mr. Pereira was born in an
alien country, some 10,000 miles away,
and I think my right is as good as

Child Welfare for Kauai
The Care of Childrens Teeth
Editor, Garden Island In your issue
of January 21st Mr. M. J. Pereira has
an article concerning some rice land
that I have been cultivating which
merits an answer.
Mr. Pereira says the "Public Lands
Department does not know nor did it
authorize said Naito to enter in and
Dr. Hranch, in company with
the community nurse, visited Hie
Kipu school on Monday, and ex
tracted no less than 1S3 defective
and decayed teeth. Only the
small children in the lower grades
were dealth with, children from
five to ten years. Many of them
were in very bad condition, de
cayed right down to the gums, so
that only stumps were left. In
one case no less than fourteen
such stumps were removed. Natu
rally there was more or less con
sternation among the youngsters,
when they realized what was go
ing to happen, but the older child
ren who had gone through the
experience before, were enthusias
tic in their approval of the job.
"No more sore teeth, no more all
Ir. Branch's wise policy is to
attend fust to the needs of the
small children, and clean up their
mouths so that they may be re
lieved from the ills consequent on
decayed teeth These teeth gen
erate pus that acts as a constant
source of poison, which under
mines the health in many unex
pected ways. In addition to this
the pain of more or less constant
tootli ache unfits the children for
any efficient work in school or
anywhere else. It also sours their
dispositions, and dcvclopes a more
or less constant grouch, which in
some cases runs into a vicious,
evil disposition. In a word neg
lected teeth tend to break down
the general health and the char
acter as well. Nothing will min
ister more ell'ccl ively to happy,
healthy, and sturdy children, in
school or at home than sound,
well cared for teeth.
The best teeth among the child
ren are found among the llawaii
ans and the Filipinos the worst
among the Japanese and Portu
guese. This is probably due to

said in part :
''As examiner of applicants for
naturalization there is very much
that I should like to say, if time
permitted, to a gathering of Amer
ican educators like this. The very
first thing that we run up against
in the process of naturalization
is the barrier of ignorance of our
language and institutions on the
part of the applicants. Years ago
our bureau of naturalization
found that some system of educat
ing these persons in the funda
mentals of American citizenship
was imperative. Many churches.

agencies, have been conducting
educational classes for this pur
