ALL ABOUT KAUAI
So that we may see ourselves as
others see us, we re-print the fol
lowing letter written by Miss Dollle
Lee to the Maul News:
Four Mauians arrived ot Na will-
will August 17, at 6 a .m. (Mr. and
Mrs. A. J. Cockett and the writer).
The moonlight voyage was a de
lightful one. The glassy sea and Its
caps of foam made the ocean a gar
den of moonlight paradise.
The Claudine anchored off the
landing, we got into small boats
and were towed to the wharf.
J. K. Cockett was there to greet
us and we drove to Koloa, ejeven
miles from this landing, to his won
derful home. The house is situated
on a hill, which has a commanding
view of both ocean and the mountains.
As we left the town of Lihue,
we neared the sweet scented forest
of different kinds of foreign trees.
Koloa, like Hilo, is very deceiving
to strangers. It rains when one least
expects it .
We had a dandy breakfast after
which we visited the McBryde Park,
which is really a heaven on earth.
It's uniqueness and commanding
views are surely inspiring to one's
heart and soul. The different varl
ties of flowers, trees, ferns, and
relics are beyond description in beau
Thursday, August 18, we visited
the Spouting Horn, which was run
ning unusually high at Kakuaula. It
certainly is a wonderful place. The

From there we went to visit the
McBryde beach home, the "Kauai
Garden of Eden."
We met Mr. McBryde, who seems
to be a very good natured, kind.

We next visited the Poipu beach

On August 20, we visited the
windward side of the island. The
scenery and drive were lovely. We
left Koloa at 11:45 a.m. and with all
the stops and punctures we got
home at 10 p.m. It 'was a good
long 100 miles ride.
The three most interesting plac
es are Hanalel valley, the dry and
Just a few lines on these wonder
Hanalel valley is a beautiful rice-
covered valley which is both near
the sea and mountain with a large
streajn winding in the center to feed
the rice patches. Scare-crows and
the flags of all nations are seen in
this place floating like kites at a
Dry Cave Is a very large cave
large enough for the largest auto
mobile to drive in and turn, with
lots of extra space .On the left-
hand side of it there Is a continu

told no end had been found.
The car only goes as far as this
cave, but within a few months the

is about a half hours walk.
Both of the latter are said to be
bottomless. One has very clear wa

edge before you get to the surface
of the water. The whole cave looks
like a large open mouth. Two of us

Right above this cave la a high,
steep mountain where the Hawaiiuns
in olden times used to display their
"O ahl," (meaning shooting fire)
The Hawatlans took bundles of hau
branches with the ends sharpened
and went up this mountain, burned
the ends and then threw them to
ward the ocean, making comet-like
I was told tourists stay out in the
ocean on boats and watch the na
tives perform for $10.
On Monday, August 22, we visited
the leeward side ot the Island.
The places of interest are Hana-
pepe valley where the Minehaha
Falls are, Waimea stream, over
which the longest bridge on Kauai
is found and the "Burking Sand."
The Barking Sand is composed
of several hills located nar the sea
shore about 30 to 50 feet high. The
sand is very hot and by taking it
in both hands and bringing them to
gether it barks or rather makes a
"woo-woo" sound. I took some and
put it in a bottle and it also burk

Automobile manufacturers carefully recommend, in their Books of

This is necessary because engine operation causes road dust, carbon,
fine metal particles and other impurities to accumulate in your crank
