A very interesting and novel venture
in a new field is that about to be under
taken by Colonel and Mrs. Meng. tor
some time residents of Lihue a ven
ture that will place them along side
of Robinson Crusoe as monarchs of
lonely islands, and necromancers of
The Palmyra Islands lie about 900
pniles to the south of us, are manifold
fn number and are strung over a dis
tance of some 40 miles. They are low
jlying coral islets, most of them awash
it high tide, varying in size from a few
jfeet square to 8 or 10 acres. The lar
gest is an atoll island, a circular reef
bt coral with a lagoon in the center.
Some 35 or 40 years apo the Pacific
Navigation Company, of Honolulu,
planted some 20,000 cocoanut trees
there which are now in their prime,
j They are covered to the water's edge
with a wilderness growth of cocoanuts.
pandanus, naupaka, birds-nest tern, etc.
The sea teems with fish and the land
is alive with birds.
A "hui" of young men of an adven
turous turn, has recently secured a
lease of these islands for a term of five
years, with a view to developing the
resources there, and making a fortune
for themselves. Col. Meng is one
member of that hui, and he proposes to
go down there with the necessary sup
plies and appliances to begin opera
tions and see what can be made of the
islands. The main endeavor at the
start will be to manufacture copra
in paying quantities. The cocoanuts
are there in great abundance on the
J.rces in monster clusters, and on the
ground singly but in quantity. The
blow of an axe splits them open, and
exposes to the hot tropic sun the meat
which dries so that it curls out of the
shell. It is then packed in bags for
shipment. Copra is high now and
ought to yield good money.
As there are absolutely no people on
the Islands they won't be bothered
with their neighbors' chickens or their
neighbors' children, and peace and
quiet will be the normal condition of
things, and nobody will question Mrs.
Meng's good taste in dress or face
powder. She will Bet the styles.
There are no houses on the islands,
no streams, springs or even water
holes. No red dirt, no rock, save coral,
no upland, no roads, no stores, no mov
ing pictures. All these things are to
come if at all.
Looking into the future the sanguine
imagination pictures a thriving colony
with comfortable homes, warehouses,
recreation field, ice plant and cold
storage, a cannery for fish, a supply
steamer, etc. But for the present it
will be a lone couple, fitting up a
simple home, and then working like
beavers making copra day in and day
out. Once a quarter the supply schoon
er will visit the islands, bringing them
the accumulation of mail, and a three
month's stock of the necessities of
Day in and day out. there will be the
Bea and the sky, the wind, the cocoa
nut trees and the salt spray and once
In a while, they say, the smoke of a
passing steamer. It will be a life
with a lot of romance in it and a
whole lot of something else not so delightful!

PHILIP K. PALAMA,
Prof. Vaughan MacCaughey occupied
the pulpit of Lihue Union church last
Sunday morning, taking for his subject
"Waialeale a symbol of the Christian
Life." The symbolic lessons drawn
from the spectacle of Kauai's most
beautiful mountain were aptly and Im
pressively presented by the speaker.
Waialeale was likened unto Christian
character In the following respects:
(1) The mountain has been built grad
ually, many lava flows, through long
periods of timet, having been super
Imposed one upon the other. Christ
ian character is not developed in a
day. (2) The mountain 1b scarred
with its struggles with the elements.
The Christian life is a struggle it
cannot be lived on a bed of roses. (3)
Insidious, foreign pests have gotten
into the vegetation on the mountain
slopes and Hawaiian forests are
doomed. Human character suffers from
pests. (4) Waialeale presents differ
ent faces some radiant with beauty,
others sterile desert. Life has its
deserts and its oases. (5) The moun
tain reaches up high and catches the
clouds bringing the rain from the sea.
(6) It is benevolent giving out streams
of pure water, cooling air and fragrance
of flowers. (7) It is a hard climb to
the summit but worth all it costs. (8)
From the mountain top one sees the
shore line, the margin of the moun
tain; men and women have margins
in their daily lives. Some, as spare
time, may spend this margin of time
profitably, others in trifling ways de
void of beauty.
Attendance at Sunday school was
very gratifying last Sunday. A full
force of teachers has again been se
cured and prospects are bright for a
good year. An adult Bible class is a
probability in the near future.
The social evening that has been
planned for all the members and
u lends of the church for October 1st
has been postponed one week. This
pleasant occasion will thr.n fall on
October 8th, at the pastor' residence.
THE RESULTS OF REGISTRATION
The legally registered voters for the
coming elections are as follows:
Niihau 33 32
Kekaha 45 25
Waimea 136 65
Makaweli 102 33
Wahiawa 112 24
Koloa 114 45
Lihue 319 135
Kawaihau 283 127
Kilauea 52 40
Hanalei 100 62
Total 1296 588
Total No. of Voters 1884
In the registration of women Kilauea
makes the best showing, 43 per cent
of local registrants. Hanalei comes
next with 3S per cent; Kawaihau
shows 31 per cent, Lihue 30 per cent,
Waimea 2 per cent, Koloa 27 per
cent, while Wahiawa makes the poor
est showing with 17 per cent. General
average, 30 per cent.
The registrar's office was open up
to midnight of the 14th, and there was
considerable activity up to 10:30 p.m.
The last applicant appeared about
11:10. No women came after 8:30.
The register books are giant auto
graph albums, since every individual
registrant must sign in the designated
place. Needless to say it is an auto
graphic album of much. variety and a
good deal of interest a fertile field for
the study of chirography and charac
ter. Here and there these autograph
signatures are pasted in. When for
any reason the registrant is unable to
appear personally, he or she can make
affidavit before a notary and forward
the same to the registrar, together
with the signature on a slip of paper.
There are a good many of these applied
signatures in the woman's book.
