urday. According to tho police,
tho man was arrested for an
attempt to knife a Japanese girl
near the baseball park. lie was
examined by Dr. Ilagood of Keu
lia and then confined in tho local
jail. On Thursday Dan llano,
out; kind hearted jailor, had a no
tion that his prisoner needed a
little freedom and more fresh air,
so he unlocked his cell with the
intention of letting tho man roam
about in tho prison yard. ' The
Filipino immediately bolted and
headed for the school house with
his keeper in hot pursuit. The man
was finally caught in the swamps
ifter giving Dan llano and his
aides some rather strenuous ex
erase. ' '
The Kauai Drug Co. and Van
Leuvan's are now located in the
new building next to the Bank of
Kauai. A bicycle store is being
opened in the quarters vacated by

H. P. "BesJ:" tractor for use in

all the way to Moloaa, two days

fare worker and Garden Island
correspondent at Ivealin, was
abound last week exhibiting his
talents in the lino of automobile

live wire, and we hope that
many more of Henry Ford's gas
wagons will be running around
soon as a tribute to his tireless
efforts to Jielp Henry realize his
ambition of putting a Ford into
every family in the United States.
Sandow and his hula dancers
gave exhibitions at the Kapaa
hall on Thursday and Friday eve
nings. The show drew quite a
crowd the first night but the
exhibition, which was exceedingly
indecent and should never have
been allowed to be staged here,
failed to attract tho second nitiht.
It .suited certain elements in the
crowd who expressed their appro
val at certain intervals with vul
var remarks, but so offended
many respectable persons who
came to the theatre as a matter
of course, that many left before
the performance was over the first
night. Sandow and his feats of
strength were worth seeing per
haps, but they were old stuff as
lie showed them all here last year
md had nothing new to exhibit.
Kapaa would be much better off
our amuseinent promoters
would see fit to keep away such
exhibitions from here.
