THE HELE LOAS
UP THE RIVER
Contiiiloring how Interesting nnd
enjoyalilu the trip up tho Wailu.i
river is, it is surprising how many
there are who have lived here for
years and have never made it.
When are We Going Up the River?
Henienihering last year's success
ful Hcleloa outing thither, there
have Ih-cII many inquiries. When

Up the River in a Fair Wind.
The Wailua poi factory flotilla
was there, and all ready for the
trip. It consisted of a sturdy motor
launch and the No. 1 barge, out
fitted roughly with benches and
Chinese stools. The motor boat was
assigned to the steerage passeng

still and couldn't keep quiet, while
the more staid and proper took
cabin passage in the barge. It was
a question which was the1 more rest
less and the more noisy bunch.
Up hte River With a Fair Wind.
With a fair wind astern and the
motor boat ahead, they sped up the
river rapidly, with many expressions
of delight over the picturesque views
on either side, which unfolded about
liko a gigantic moving picture film.
Marooned at the Head of Navigation
When they reached the head of
navigation on the south fork at Ko
naloa, a veritable "inumuku" typh
oon swept down tho high hills to
the south and drove the flotilla
helplessly into a lee shore, tho mo
tor boat propeller got wound up and
choked in the long grass, so that it
wouldn't function, and for a half
an hour or more it looked as though
tho party was marooned there for
a day with the commissariat de
partment left behind inakai.
Uy dint of murh patient submar

cleared and strenuous efforts were
made to tow the barge out into
the stream and head her around

such violence that this was impos

for his return. For a few moments

taken with sandwiches and other
delicacies of various kinds, made
an excellent supper to which every
one did ample Justice.
Around the Evening Bon-flre.
When the shades of evening drew
deeper, a big bonfire was started,
around which the party spent the
evening, singing songs, and telling
stories, largely Hawaiian, suitable
to the local surroundings, until the
moon arose, and their watches
reminded them that It was time
to go home and "put the children
to bed." Reluctantly they gathered
up their belongings, or such of
them as they could find, and depart
ed with many cordial expressions
of satisfaction over tho afternoon's
outing, and the hope that there
would soon be another.
Income Tax Facts
The new requirement of the In
come tax law lhut returns shall be
made of gross Income of
$5,000 or more regardless ot the am
ount of net Income upon which the
tax is assessed, necessitates careful
computation on tho part of the tax
payer, "tlross Income" includes prac
tically every dollar received by tho
tax payer during the year 1921 in
salaries, wages, commissions, rents,
royalti.es, interest on bank deposits,
cash dividends on stock, "or income
from any source whatsoever." "Net
income" Is gross income less cer
tain deductions provided for by tho
uct Including all business expenses
incurred in the conduct or a busi
ness, trade, profession, or vocation.
Certain expenditures, however, are
not deduetable as n business ex
ponse when made for the purchase
of articles more or less permanent
in character, or for permanent im
provement of property. I'or example
a merchant would not be allowed
to deduct the amount expended in
the erection of a new store, or a
farmer the cost of a new tractor
or threshing machine, since such
investments are held to bo capital
investments. The law 'jxpressly pro
hibits the deduction of family or
living expenses, such as rent for a
dwelling i cost of food and clothing
for the family, education of children,
servant's wages, and similar items.

Mr. Lydgate, who Is quite an in
telligent connoiseur of bananas, has
just harvested a bunch of Maia

inferior grade ot these bananas sell
In Honolulu at ten cents a pound,
which would make this bunch worth

Tho only bananas suitable for
the foreign market are the common
Chinese variety, but for our own
homo market the rarer Hawaiian
varieties are very much finer anil
very much more valuable., and they
should be cultivated more generally.
