KAUAI'S VAX l ALU
lu tins issue of Tlio (iarden Island, Wal
tor Mcliryde offers a reward of 20 to anyone
who furnishes the information that will con
vict the person or persons who maliciously
destroyed two Japanese stone lanterns at
the entrance of Kukuiohmo l'ark. Mr. Mo
Uryde also finds it necessary to have a num
ber of signs printed requesting the public, not
to drivo their autos around and over the
lawn and to refrain from destroying the
The vandals who have done this kind
of mischief are an eternal disgrace to Kauai.
They are not good citizens, they never could
be. There is nothing public spirited about
them. They can't even let someone else give
his fellowmen a beautiful park without a
desire to destroy it.
A few years ago Kukuiolouo l'ark was a
barren hill. It was thought to be practically
worthless. No one wanted it for agricultural
purposes because the soil was so poor, it
was too windswept and exposed to produce
good crops. No one saw any value in it.
That is, no one, but Walter .MclJryde.
Mr. Mclirydc bought, the land, and by
hard work and the expenditure of much
time, thought, and money, has made it into
one of .the greatest beauty spots of the Ha
waiian Islands, lie has generously thrown
it open to the public, to citizen and alien
alike. He has put no strings on it what
ever. It is and always has been from t lit
time Mr. McUryde first started it. one of
Kauai's finest pieces of public spirited work.
Decent people will not commit such acts
of vandalism, as the tearing down of stub
fine work. Oilier people must be taught
that they cannot do it. it is to be hoped
that the offenders will be caught and Iheir
misdeeds properly punished.

Another accident on Kapaia hill, due to
skidding on the wet and slippery road, again
emphasizes the fact that something must be
done to make that piece of road less dan
gerous, rutting sand on this road is use
less, as the first rain that conies washes the
sand into the gutter. The way they fix such
places on the mainland is to score the sur
face with diagonal lines. This has proved to
be very effective as u skid preventative. We
would also suggest that the manual training
department of Liliue school prepare signs
similar to the ones now at the school corner
and place them on this hill.
AS THE WOMEX SEE IT
Two women were discussing newspaper
advertising. "I read the advertising,"
said Mrs. A, "as carefully as I would u de
scription of some j dace where, by diligent
searching, I might find a sum of money. 1
am guided by what I read at the moment.
If 1 see something advertised at a price I
know means money-saving, I go to that store
with a view to buying it until my present
stock is worn out or exhausted. A good
bargain is a good bargain any time. I buy
ahead when the saving warrants it."
Mrs. 13 confessed that she was not so
forward looking. "When I read the ads," she
said, "it is with a feeling that a merchant
is trying to sell me something whether I
want it or not. 1 lead and shop for the day
In effect Mrs. 15 regards advertisements
only as a leniptation. Mrs. A looks upon
them as opportunities. !' the two, Mrs. A
is the most efficient housekeeper. Her use
of the ads is the same that the manager of
any business makes of his knowledge ami in
formation concerning conditions that may ef
fect his undertakings in the future. She mak
es her money go farther than Mrs. 1! possi
bly can. Mrs. A continued her conversation
long enough to make this observation. "The
merchant who appeals oftenesi to my d.'sire
to buy for ihe future is the man who runs
the best store and offers the best goods. He
is availing himself of two markets today's,
the future's. If he has sense enough to do
that he has ability to run his More on the
best lines. I favor the merchant who adver
ises oftenest, with the givatcsl regularity and
in the greatest detail. Tioin my reading of
advertisements I know enough ahonl tium
to understand that the store which puts out
sloppy ads or which advertise at irregular
intervals in a hit or iniss way is ihe store
most apt to give me hit or miss goods."
We've noticed that some men can re
member to get their dog license Inn can't
remember to go around to the polls and vole
for good government.
KAUAI'S Y. M. C. A.
Never in the history of Kauai has so
much interest been laken iu the Y. M. 0. A.
Never has the "Y" had such opportunity to
do good work. And, never, we believe, has it
done as much for the real uplift of young
manhood of the (Jarden Isalnd its it is doing
Neil Locke, Kauai's "Y" secretary, has
organized a number of Y. M. O. A. clubs on
the (larden Island, lie has given, or will
give, every district of the island an oppor
tunity for this work. And he . is giving so
much time and thought to the work that the
clubs are, in all instances, successful. Young
men are getting together regularly and are
beginning to see the real meaning of the
If you have any doubt as to the bene
fit of the work of the Y. M. V. A. is doing,
take a little time off and attend a few of
these meetings. You may be a scoffer, now,
but we'll bet our last year's bat that if you
investigate you will be willing to invest more
of your time, sympathy and cash in this pro
ject than you have ever done before.
ABOUT OUR ROADS
The roads of this section are coining to
be more and mote of a problem. With traf
fic getting heavier and heavier all the time,
and the demands on the highways becoming
correspondingly heavier, what is to be done
and how is it to be done, and especially how
is it to be paid for, are matters iu which
every citizen of Kauai is interested. AVe are
going to have to stay on the earth. Flying
machines do not seem to be coming into such
common use that they will do for hauling
farm produce and livestock, but it does seem
that every week sees the motor truck bring
iug something new to our doors. They take
up a good deal of the road, it is true, but
the roads are public and we can't forbid
them their usage. , We can. however, secure
better roads by taxing the trucks according
to weight or size of tiro spread. We believe
the proper taxation of truck traffic will go
a long way toward solving the good road
proposition ou this island.
A HARD BLOW
We don't see why the professor couldn't
have kept it to himself about 50 years longer.
Here we are trying to be happy and hopeful
and he comes along and tells us well, just
listen to what this Yale professor tells us.
He says that either the earth's rate of rota
tion is lowing down or Ihe moon is moving
faster. The result is that each year we gain
one-thousandth of a second of daylight, and
that when the world is ;!;0,0(K) years older
than it is now, each of our precious nights
will be oue second shorter. The year was
full of disappointing and discouraging things.
But it is tough to have a blow like this fall
at the beginning of the new year. Be of good
cheer maybe alter till the professor is wrong
Maybe it will be ::;',)(l() years before we be
