The Garden Island:
One block above the Fairvicw
hotel is the new home of Tim Gar
niiN Isi.an'd, the largest publishing
and printing establishment on
Kauai and headquarters for latest
information pertaining to Kauaian
affairs and the home of good print
Liliue Meat Market:
A little further up main street
' brings one to the L,ihue meat mar
ket, conducted by one of our Polo
experts, Arthur Rice, who makes
a personal selection of his animals
before he slaughters, with the
riult that Liliue and surrounding
community are supplied with ex
cellent beef. Uesides the arduous
duties incumbent upon him in
managing the Lihue market, the
county of Kauai is fortunate to
claim him as its worthy treasurer
Lihue Hantfss Shop:
Next door to the market, is the
Lihue Harness shop which is one
of the most attractive little business
institutions in Lihue. Mr. Alohi
kea is the manager, and is one of
our most trustworthy citizens.
Kauai's Emporium:
Who has not heard of "Kauai's
Emporium," also known as the
Lihue Store. It's located on the
corner of Main and Nawiliwili.
You can distinguish the store from
others by its enormous plate glass
front and the magnificent window
draperies, beautiful show cases
artistically arranged, and filled with
such enticing prices and articles,
that one finds himself thinking he
is in a city department store.
Managers of each department,
with their clerks, greet you upon
entrance and whether your buying
is large or nothing at all you
receive the same courtesy. Mana
ger Delacy, of the Dry-goods De
partment, must know that his
name is a household by-word in
nearly every house on Kauai. His
geniality in dealing with the pub
lie, the ease with which he can
match exactly a piece of goods for
a lady forty or fifty miles away
how he can explain to distant
customers just what would best
suit them, and then to hnu he is
always correct, has given him a
reputation as a salesman, few have
ever obtained. Mr. Fountain of
the grocery department is a great,
big, honest, square-dealer and with
little difficulty, conducts his end of
this immense business in a highly
satisfactory manner both to his em
ployeraud customer. The oriental
department is under the supervision
of H. Yoshimoto who, with a corps
of clerks, keeps this department
running in tip-top shape.
John Raposa, is another o f the
genial managers of this large em
porium, having charge of the hardware-lumber
interests. Whether
its a ten-cent pepper box or lumber
for a sky-scraper, he is always
"Johny on the spot," in filling
the order. Mr. G rote Jr., presides
over the store books, and at the
head of this very systematic up-to
date wholesale and retail general
merchandise establishment, we find
. the key to the whole situation in
Manager Rohrig, whom we found
in his office which is so situated as
to allow him a direct oversight of
the string o f large warehouses
near by, as well as to be within a
moment's access to the main store.
Manager Rohrig has installed sep
arate phones for each department,
which proves a great time-saver
both to his clerks and customers.
The "money back if not satisfied"
motto, which manager Rohrig has
adopted, combined with the quality
of goods and his ability to select
such excellent assistants, brings to
this store, customers from all parts
of Kauai.
Possessed with a pleasing pc r -sonality,
Manager Rohrig is not
only one off our most successful

Kegel Club Gives
Farewell To Nicolai
The headquarters of the members
of the Kegel Club the recognized
social center of Lihue was the
scene of another of its extremely
popular social functions last week,
when the members met in a farewell
assembly to Gus Nicolai who leaves

of years' residence in Hauamaulu,
being Chief engineer of the Haua
maulu Mill. Preliminaries, con
sisting of a bowling contest having
been disposed of, an abundant sup
ply of refreshments were "served.
Pres. Wolters made the opening
speech, dwelling effectively upon
the efficiency of Mr. Nicolai as a
workman, his value to the club as
a member, the regret of the club at
his loss and on behalf of the club,
wished brother Nicolai unbound
ed success in his new field. Many
others followed President Wolters
in his address, each of whom spoke
in highest praise of Mr. Nicolai and
d e e p 1 y regretted Ins departure
Mr. Nicolai, responded with much
feeling, saying among other things
that he appreci ated the many
pleasant remarks to which he had
listened with much feeling and that
he would always consider his resi
dence here as the happiest period
of his life. He then thanked the
members of the club for their hos
pitality and concluded by wishing
the club continued success.
Mr. Nicolai leaves Hananiaulu to
accept a position with the Honolulu
Iron Works, with whom he severed
his connection to accept the position
which he now relinauishes.
