THE KOKEE ROAD
The board of supervisors has had the Ko
kee road re-surveyed and are now ready to
go ahead and put in the road. They had an
appropriation of thirty thousand dollars for
the whole job. The surveying eost about three
thousand dollars. That leaves about twenty
seven thousand dollars lor the actual work
of pulling in the road.
If you have been over that strip of coun
try lalely that is called the Kokee road yu
will know that it is none too soon to get to
work. You take your car and your life in
your hands when' you start on that trip. It
is one grand series of bumps from the start
to the finish.
Alter going over the road yon can not
help but form one one conclusion. That is
that the little old twenty-seven thousand dol
lars will be only a beginner. It will not come
anywhere near 'putting in a decent road up
to Kokee. And it is useless to put in a tem
porary road that will be worn out at the
bottom before the top is finished.
The logical thing to do is to start build
ing that road at the government road and
work inauka. Make a good road as far as
the funds will permit. Then get more money
and finish it.
The money will have to be obtained from
the legislature. It can't be procured anw oili
er way. Hut a good road to Kokee would
be a territorial asset and we are fully justified
in asking for it. If we can't get it any other
way, bond the county. The proposition will
pay dividends in the end.
WHEX DREAMS COME TRUE
Every youth started out iu, t!u world
with the hope and expectation that he will
eventually climb the golden stairs of wealth,
fame or fortune, or all of these. His youth
fid dreams are optimistic, his hopes magni
ficent. Little does he realize the rugged road
he must travel to obtain his desires. Little
does he realize the pitfalls that lie hidden in
the path he must tread. Little does he know
of the ambushes that conceal his enemies, the
path that will lead him astray, the darkness
and the storms he must encounter, or the
savage beasts of discontent, temptation, jeal
ousy and others of their kin that are watch
ing every opportunity to destroy him or to
lead him from the path that leads to the
relaization of his youthful hopes and am
bitious. Few, if any reach their goal; yet there
are many who by their persistency and a
dogged determination to win keep on, ever
pressing onward and upward through the
storms that beset them, the wild beasts that
mcnuec them, and Ihe pitfalls that obstruct
their path. These are the cautions ones. These
are the wise ones who turn deaf to enchant
ing allurements that turn the weak minds
from their course and leave them broken
and blasted by the wayside.
Success is obtained not by luck, but by
perseverance and hard work. There is no
royal road to wealth, to fame or knowledge.
York, hard and persistent work is the
p'rice of admission to. the higher circles of
men's ambition. It is a continual grind, re
gardless of fatigue, that wins the strength
for the realization of youthful ambition. Tew
there are who have the rugged constitution
to persevere to the end. Few there are who
can resist the temptations that lure so
many front the rugged path, or are wise
enough and watchful enough to avoid the
pitfalls that have been dug and s nicely
concealed in the path they must tread.
The fate of the millions that fail to
reach the goal of their ambitions, is rarely
heeded. The striving millions that come 'af
ter them, believing in (heir own strength and
power, rysh along blindly in their mad pur
suit of a youthful ideal. Fatigue overtakes
them, and they stop to rest. It is then the
tempter appears, -lie may have strength of
character to resist, pick up his burden and
go along, and if he does, all well and good.
He will succeed to the degree in which he is
Some people are always looking for sky
rockets. They believe iu luck. They expect
to turn a stone that will reveal wealth iu
almost fabulous quantities. They expect that
they will be placed in positions of power and
responsibility, through some turning of the
hand; but the chances are more than one
hundred to one that they are doomed to
Far the greater number never find the
pot or gold at the end of the rainbow, and
learn later iu life that genius and luck are
but synonyms'of pluck, and hard work, and
that it is the steady grind day after day
that makes the dreams of youth come true
or even partially so.
Constant application, persistency and
dogged determination are the qualifications
necessary for (lie winning of the race, and
that gambling wiHi fate is a fool's pastime.
OrrORTUXITY FOR HOMESTEADERS
This week, F. (1. Krauss of the Univer
sity of Hawaii, is on Kauai. He is n part of
the university's agricultural extension course.
He wants to help farmers generally, espe
cially small farmers and homesteaders.
About, a mouth ago the university sent
Prof. L. A. Henkc over here, ne called on
many of the small farmers and n few of
the plantations. At one place where he talk
ed at night he had three or four fanners as
his audience, The others in that community
had gone to a movie, a dog fight or some other
form of amusement.
Many of our small farmers need agricul
tural help and advice badly. We have no
county agent system as most of the mainland
state have. And the university is trying to
fill this need and give the farmers all the
help it can.
Prof. Krauss' schedule is printed in the
news columns of this paper. Every farmer
that can should plan to hear him. Ask him
for advice. He has had the theorectical and
practical training. He can be of help to many
fanners if they will let him.
That the tide of prosperity is coming is
evidenced by an increase of over 8,000,000
in the month of December in the industrial
situation on the mainland. Textile mills are
nearly up to normal and they show a marked
increase. All along the Atlantic coast condi
tioi.s are improving and also in the north
central west. The southwest and the Pacific
coast has not felt the revival of business to
any great extent, but it is improving. This
shows that the country is awakening to bus
iness, and that the improvements, which start
ed in the east, is gaining in volume and slow
ly rolling to the west, and will ere long in
clude the whole United States in a tidal
wave of prosperity.
Such is the indication gathered from the
report of the United States employment ser
vice of the Department of Labor. The tide
can reach us none too soon. We have all
been waiting with greater or less degrees of
patience, hoping and praying for a return
to normal conditions and "the full dinner
pail." The Hungarian government is seeking to
entice its people now resident of the United
Stales to return to their native land by of
fering at nominal cost several thousand acres
of government land. To a Hungarian who has
lived very long iu America this proposition
does not appeal with any great degree of
pulling strength. The Americanized sees un
der the flag of the United States far greater
opportunities than his country can offer him
la ml or no land, and few of them are accept
ing the offer of their home government to
leave what they have in America and go to
Hungary to take a chance with its poverty
and unsettled conditions. On the other hand
there are many thousands in Hungary who
would be glad of an opportunity to come to
America; but, fortunately for us, the bars
are up and only a limited number can come
If you are putting your trust iu fate
you are advised to keep your eye upon the
fellow who works. He, like you, has seen the
flowers in the garden of imagination, but
he has the sense to realize that they are not
gathered or propagated without labor.
