The I Joy Srouts rank high in the IrM of faetors of importance t the community. Tin Sr. Louis Star, commenting on the Boy Scout movemenr, says1: Judge Kdward Porterfield f the Kansas City invenile court unrcs even- iiarent in that city to induce his boys to join the Boy Scouts. "If even Ikv in the citv woubl join, lie savs "the gangs would disappear, the juvenile cour soon .would Ik a stranger to the youth and w wouh mir a generation of men that would not mi u ire much nolice protection. I have n'vet a a had a, Boy S;out in .my court, and there are 1200 of them in Kansas City." This snlcndid tribute to an organization scarcel v four vears old is a well-merited one Hoys are small bundles of corked-up enthusiasm This enthusiasm must have a vent. If there h no other outlet, the gang is the result. The 'Boy Scout movement is spreading rapid ly throughout the nation, and it deserves the en couragement of every good man and woman. The Boy Scout not only is providtnl with an outlet for his exuberant spirits, but he is taught the love of nature in the open.' He Jearns, too. to rare for himself mid for his comrades under anv conditions.

In tlie same breat lithe Advertiser ad mtis the character of the hula joint, overlooking the fact that 'Madame Puahi says the sheriffs order to her merely told her to "lay low" for a little time until the agitation against her place blew over. Nor does it explain why the sheriff does not summarily close the joint if he is really trying to "improve moral conditions in this city." That recent jMilice investigation fiasco still sits badly on our morning friend's temper. KEEPING TP A GOOD FIGHT The Kohala Midget is still waging its fearless fight on graft in Hawaii county.
