Of course, it should be statu! here, those bonafide residents of Kauai who have been at Honolulu and mainland school and who may be home again on their vacations, will be Welcomed on the entry list. The training quarters, under the grandstand in Lihue Park have re cently been fitted out with a shower bath, by the Plantation authorities which is much appreciated a u d made good use of by the athletes. Rubbing tables have also been put in, where rub-downs may be obtained after the hard work in the field, thus enabling the contest ants to keep in the best physical condition and n.-L-vvii.ifrtlR.dn--,.r of strains to the muscles which are sure to occur if they are allowed to become telise. Athletesill over the island are advised to practice the different events under the eyes oft men who have trained for similar contests in Honolulu or elsewhere, and to seek .their advice as much as possible.in order to avoid the danger of mak ing serious blunders in their me thods of training which may de stroy their chanc of w irji gpoinfs in the events which 'they will en ter.
