Koloa Plantation Store
The Koloa Plantation Store, with
its tremeiiduous stock or general
merchandise and under the super
vision of Mr. Bucholtz, one of the
best known store managers on
Kauai, was a scene of action in
every department. Manager
Bucholtz, besides being an tip-to-date
business man, is endowed
with a cordiality toward newspaper
men which in its rarity, is heartily

where we found so many interest- j

as though they were dressed for a

pines from this factory . there will
be 110 fear but tliat they are su

that Manager McBryde was not in
at the time of our visit, and are
duly thankful for the courtesy of
the foreman, who gr anted us the
privilige of visiting the plant.
McBryde Plantation Store
The McBryde Plantation Store,
a small but well stocked store,
was the next to engage our atten
tion. Manager Roeiidahl, who has
but recently taken charge, was dis
covered up to his neck in wall
paper, paint, etc., and explained
that he was having a general over
hauling with a view of remodeling
the entire interior. We took his
word for it, and learned that his
plans for the store included the
latest modern improvements,
which will result in making this
one of the fashionable stores of the
Eleele Store
A little further on, 'round the
Coiner, we discovered the F.leele
Store, K a u a i ' s "Temple Of

is owned by Hon. J.I. Silva. The

at the Marine Drive Sea Shore on
Thurday last. It was a Basket

sufficient for two, and each boy a

lunch time came the girls drew
their boys by lot and paired off more

be quite at home with the girl of

Some parents think that their

Japan for education. I think it is
a great mistake and will only tend
to disqualify children for future
citizenship in this country. No
man can serve two masters, and if
our children wish to enjoy the citi

great Republican government , of
: the United States they should be
educated in American schools.
I cannot help thinking that our
