It certainly Is good to be a member
of a winning team, or if you are not
a member, to live in the community
from whence the champions hail. The
above refers to the Makee team. 1920

As a starter, Mr. Wolters. president
of the club, treated the boys to a din

School teachers gave the players and
club ofilcials a dance at the school hall
on Friday evening.
The players and club officials were
there in full force, but so were the
teachers of the school, and more be

march around the hall, followed by a
A HUNT FOR HID TREASURE
A gold mine on the front street is
the latest thing in Waimea. It seems
that for years back an old Chinaman,
one Sun K had been in the habit of
burying ten dollar pieces, along the
edge of the road near his restaurant.
Ueing now well along in years he
concluded to retire, gather up his
deposits and go back to China. He
knew, of course, just where to go
for his money. lint strange to say.
when he went to dig, the money was
not there. Thinking that he might
be a "little off" in the locality he
gathered up a band of his friends and
they dug, industriously, but all in vain.
Then he offered a reward of 25 per
cent of the find. They set to it
again with fresh zeal, and dug frant
ically, but still in vain.
Meantime, the unfortunate old
man is yielding to the inevitable con
viction that it isn't there, and that
he has lost some $1.4ii0.i0.
The moral is obvious, and the
Waimea bank is doing an increased
business In consequence.
BAMBOO AS A MINOR INDUSTRY
The latest good value for a fortune
is a Damboo Plantation. With the
extravagant prices of paper, and the
growing scarcity of wood pulp, the
bamboo is coming into its own. The
growth is rapid, the yield is large, and
the quality superior. The finest
parchment paper is made of it. We
hear of a man who is independently
wealthy with a plantation of 100 acres.
It is not in Hawaii, but it probably
NEW PINEAPPLE ENTERPRISE
There is a big pineapple enterprise
on the carpet for the Kast coast of
Hawaii. it is a scheme to raise pines
on such lands as are available all the
way from Waipio into the middle of
Puua, a stretch of 75 or SO miles with
much excellent land suitable for
The cannery will be situated at or
near Hilo. where the shipping facilities
are excellent and the pines will be
transported to the factory by means
of the Hilo Railway.
Some radical prophets go so far as
to predict that pines will take the
place of cane in Hamakua because of
the prevailing dry weather in that
HAWI PLANTATION TO
MAKE FUEL ALCOHOL
The Hawi Plantation, of Kohala
John Hind, proprietor is putting in
a plant to manufacture fuel alcohol
from waste molasses. It will have a
capacity of 300 gallons a day. It is
another sign of the times and an
indication of what we are coming to
"newspaper race." in which the mem
bers of the fair sex bested the men.
Several dances and songs and yells by
the loam followed. After a few more
dances, the teachers entertained with
songs and yells, and Mr. Meheula,
vice-president of thp club, put on the
finishing touche to the singing pro
gram for the evening by rendering a
solo. A speech by Mr. Raymond fol
lowed. The "mating" of those present then
took place, and the "mated" couples
marched off to the school kitchen for
refreshments. The "mating" was dove
by cuting pictures of animals into two
pieces, mixing them up and letting
each of those present pick out a piece
at random. The two whose pieces
formed a whole picture were thus
After the ice cream and cakes were
disposed of. dances were again en
joyed. At half past twelve, Mr.
Meheula, on beh?.!f of th'j members of
the tenm, delivered a speech of thanks
to the teachers for the very enjoyable
evening given them, and said that he
believed that the only regret he and
tho others had was that championships
can only be won once a year instead
of every month.
The Teves jazz band furnished ex
cellent music for the occasion.
On Saturday evening Dr. L. C. Smith
was the host at a chop sui dinner at
the Yuen Kee Cafe. Among those
present were Mr. James Spalding,
president of Makee Sugar Company,
Mr. Walters and Mr. Raymond, presi
dent and secretary respectively of the
Makee team, all the players, and other
friends and supporters of the team.
The players, led by Henry Akl, enliv

The good times mentioned above,
however, do not end yet. Listen, and
decide whether or not the Makees
ought to bo envied. Mr. Fred Mendes
will give a luau to the team members
next Saturday, and the climax will
come when Mr. James Spalding will
give another on Saturday, October 23,
which will be the biggest and grandest
of all the season. Mr. Chas. A. Rice
of Lihue, has already voluntarily
agreed to donate one of his best pigs
for the occasion.
