One of the homesteaders says:
"I feel strongly about this matter,
for I have read of Ihe damage that
has been done in Australia during
the past twenty live years or more
by the pest.''
You are quite right Mr. Home
steader, you ought to feel strong
ly about it! Loose rabbits are a
very serious menace in this coun
try, and if allowed to increase
and spread they may easily get
beyond control, and cost these
Islands a mint of money to eradi
cate. AVe have reason to believe that
a great many very irresponsible
people here on Kauai are keeping
rabbits in a shiftless and careless
kind of way, and that we too will
have a loose-rabbit problem on
our hands the first thing we
know; indeed we probably have
it already, for we understand
that these prolilic little animals
have been seen loose and lost up
in the Gap.

AH MOON RUNS AFOUL OF THE
Last Tuesday was a busy steamer
day at Nawiliwili with the "Kinau"
in port sans her regular crew, left
behind in Honolulu on strike. Also a
makeshift gang of local laborers had
to substitute and unlaod the steamer.
The day was hot and the makc
lielieve sailors raised a thirst that had
to lie relieved with something stronger
than O. T. The word wa3 passed
along, and Ah Moon, a wily celestial,
saw a chance to make a few dollars,
and turned bootlegger. The effects of
the O. K. provided soon made Itself
felt and the police was notified by
plantation authorities. The minions
of the law swooped down upon the un
suspecting Ah Moon and caught him
in the act of purveying a bagful of
O. K., and further search of Ah Moon's
person some dope found also. Ah Lai,
a brother In crime, was also nabbed
rwl both would be liquor-dealers were
gently but firmly asked to provide bail
in the sums of $125.00 and $25.00 res
octively. The transaction completed
both were released.
On Wednesday morning when the
curtain was raised on the second act
of this drama in the Lihue District
Court both gets failed to appear and
after the names of defendants had
been called three times and no answer
returned, all this lovely bail money
was declared forfeited by his honor
and turned into the County coffers as

HARD EARTHQUAKE WAKES
SLEEPERS NO DAMAGE DONE
Hundreds of persons on Maui
were awakened from their sleep be-
tween 2 and 2:30 o'clock last Satur
day morning by one of the sharpest
earthquake shocks felt on Maui in
I years says thu .News ot Mav 21. The
jtremblor lasted tor several seconds
'and caused some alarm among the
"1(re nervous individuals. No damage
i haM l,,H'n "ported.
The shake was
felt in Honolulu
where as reported In the Honolulu
papers it appeared to be two distinct
'shocks. If it was also felt on the
Ui'g Island, as seems most likely from
its violence, no mention was made of
it in the llilo papers perhaps for
the reason, that they are so used to
earth shocks over there, and also for
flu- reason that llilo people, like those
ot San Francisco, are somewhat sen
sitive on the subject.

O. It. KFXXEDY,
The mastery of the toy trade has
now passed from Germany to Japan.
"For sweet charity's sake" has been
the thought spurring all the people
associated with the Child Welfare
League production "Green Stockings,"
to work for its grand success. With
out a doubt the enthusiasm and good
will which has been shown shows that
though the people were over-worked
and taxed for "charity's" sake during
the war, anything which Is given for
the betterment and upliftment of the
community is a guarantee of the un
selfishness and wholc-heariedness
of Its people.

Old Landmark Gone
Grove Farm has recently demolished
the historic old Malumalu School
building. Originally , it was a good
size, two story and a half building,
with assembly, recitation and dining
rooms on the first floor and dormi
tories above, sufficient for the accom
modation of some 40 or 45 boys and
the necessary teachers. In addition
to the main building there were out
buildings for shops etc.
It was built in 1890-91 and was
used for school purposes for seven
or eight years until the school was
given up, as no longer necessary, in
view of the efficiency of Kamehameha
the Hilo Boarding school, Mills, etc.
The property was then turned over to
the Hawaiian Board and was finally
disposed of by them to the present
owner, Mr. G. N. Wilcox.
Some time later, because of its
height and large exposure to the kona
storms, and of its unfitness for plan
tation purposes, the building was re
duced in size.
Malumalu was a historic spot be
fore the founding of the Malumalu
school having been the home for many
years of the late Judge Hardy ulso foV
some time of Admiral Reynolds.
Looking over the curriculum and
examination program of the school
one can hardly fail to be impressed
with the ambitious range of the same.
Some of the subjects on which the
boys were examined at the close of
the first year were astronomy, algebra,
technology and physics. But lest
this seem somewhat over-academic
and unpractical there were carpentry,
blacksmithing, and printing, and with
them all plenty of good music.
All old time Malumalu boys, many
of whom now occupy places of trust
and responsibility, will recall the
happy days they spent there with
pleasure, and will regret the demoli
tion of the old school house.
Harvard University has just in
creased the salary of its teaching
staff by fifty per cent. J
