COTTAGES AT VVVKAPELE
There is now, ami there lias been fop some
time past, a groat need at l'uukapele ami
KoUee for some sort of public cottages. One
of the finest park and camp sites in the ter
ritory is located tlicre. Hut there is no place
for anyone, except those favored few who
own cottages, to stay.
Under the present couditioss it is neces
sary for the people to go to Kokee and re
turn in the same day. A few have carried
tents along and have camped in them. But
that, at host, is a difficult and unsatisfac
tory thing to do.
.1. 11. Moragno made a suggestion the
other day, that would in a" measure, solve
the housing problem up there. Mr. Mot-ague
says the thing to do is for the county super
visors to donate the school cottages at Ma
kaweli to the park.
A fine big school is just being complet
ed at Makaweli. There are a number of cot
tages, almost a dozen, at the old school
grounds. Some of these will be moved to the
new site. Others will not be moved because
there is no need for them.
It would be a fine thing if the county
of Kauai would donate those surplus cot
tages to the ruukapole park and move them
up Ihere. Then there would be some place
for people to go and stay when they wanted
more than a day's mountain air.
l'uukapele is one of Kauai's best scenic
assets. But heretofore, we have not cashed in
on that asset as we could or should. We
can get much more pleasure and we can
draw more tourists to our island if we will
judiciously use the natural scenic resources
which we have.
We can advantageously put a caretaker
and wife in charge of that park. He could
look after the park, police it, and keep it in
condition. There are times in the summer
when the grass is so dry that one match
carelessly thrown away would set the whole
country on fire if there was no one there to
watch it and stop it. The caretaker could
keep a little supply store and sell provisions
to campers up there. All this would add
greatly to the place.
This is a good time for the county to
take steps to greatly improve l'uukapele. With
improvement in the roads more people can
easily get up the mountains. Let's make it
possible for them to stay and enjoy them
selves after they get there.
117 1 ARE SUCCESSFUL MERCHANTS
Successful merchants are constant adver
tisers. They buy goods to sell, not to keep
constantly on hand as some of the old style
advertisements were worded; but to turn
over as quickly as possible that they may buy
fresh goods, up to date and snappy, and once
they have placed them on their counters ami
shelves they inform the public through the
local papers, that such merchandise has ar
rived for public inspection.
Keep posted if you want to be in line
to purchase tin; right goods at the right
price, is a maxim that all should heed, and
the local paper is the bulletin that keeps
you in touch with your community interests,
if the merchant fails to make an announce
ment of the kind, quality and price of his
wares that is his fault; but read your local
paper, news, advertisements ami all, and you
will have a working knowledge valuable to

HOG CHOLERA t
In spite of the fact that the board of
agriculture and forestry maintains there is
no hog cholera in Hawaii, there are many
hogs dying of some disease that looks and
acts like cholera. And it is becoming a very
evident fact that these hogs are just as dead
as those that die with bona fide cholera.
On this island at present some plan
tations are innoculatiug their hogs for chol
era. The cost is high, so high it is said as to
be almost prohibitive to many of the smaller
hog owners. And yet without the innocula
tion death is certain. Some hog men predict
that the disease will not run its course un
til all the hogs on the island are killed off
by it. .-
We don't pretend to say whether this
disease is cholera or hemorrhagic septicemia.
But we do say that whatever it is, it is kill
ing far too many hogs and that the proper
authorities should recognize the fact and
take certain steps to stop it. These diseases
are being successfully combatted all over the
mainland of the United 'states and there is
no reason why they cannot be here.
WHAT IS THRIFT?
In the average man's inind, thrift means
saving money. In theory that is thrift, but
in practice it may be the reverse. For thrift
means getting the most for your money by
investing it in things for which there is a
present use or future profit. Putting a pad
lock on the pocket is not thrift. That's stingi
ness. If one can buy a lot worth $300 for ?200,
it is thrift to buy it. If a suit of clothes
which will be needed next fall can be bought
now for $20 when it will cost $30 when next
fall arrives, then it will be thrift to buy it.
Thrift is taking advantage of opportunities
in which there is a profit. It means keeping
your dollars everlastingly on the job. Thrift
also means refraining from useless expendi
tures that keep the pocket book so thin that
investments cannot be taken advantage of
when they are offered. Things should be pur
chased from the standpoint of use and profit,
ami if there is no present use aud no future
profit in sight, don't buy.
No matter what your definition of thrift
may be, when it is carefully studied and
analyzed and boiled down, it simply means
getting ready for a big opportunity, and hop
ing it will come. And getting ready for the
big opportunity is just another definition
of laying away for the rainy day. Don't hide
or dissipate your savings. Invest them. There
are so many fine opportunities open right
now, and right around here, that no man,
who cares about the future, can afford to ne
glect them or close his eyes to them.

The Financial Outlook
The demand throughout the mainland for high grade in
vestment securities, which has developed as a result of the
gradual lowering of interest rates, exhibits no signs of slack
ening. As a result, bond prices are steadily advancing and it
appears, that the time is drawing near when the opportunity
to purchase high degree investment securities at prices which
, yield liberal returns will have passednot to return, in all
probability, for many years.
It will soon be true that the investor who had foresight to
accumulate conservative investment securities at present pric
es will be in a position to point with pride to the wisdom
of his judgment.
