Delievery wagons flitted in and out and everything inside indicated business of a most satisfactory condition. Manager Gray, besides conduct ing this enterprising business, finds time to be of assistance, fo our base ball league, being a director of the Kauai Athletic Association, repre senting the K. A. C. team of Ka paa. As a man of conservative business ability, Mr. Gray has an established record which is equaled by. few and excelled by none. Kapaa Grocery. Across the street from the Kapaa Wine Co., we find the very orderly, small but enterprising store over which our very worthy Kawaihau Supervisor, Mr. Jose Rodrigues presides, being proprietor and man ager. Mr. Rodrigues carries the same pleasing personality into his business dealings that gained him his position as the people's choice as their representative Supervisor. A full stock of general merchandise lined the shelves and gave ,not the slightest indication o f being shop worn. What with the care of the store and looking after the needs of country affairs of his district, Su pervisor Rodrigues is certainly kept hustling. However, as he is of the hustling kind, he proves equal to the task, which is far more than a man posseses with less energy than he could do. Continued next week.

(From the Star) Kauai defeated the Fifth Cavalry in the second game of the polo tournament played at Moanalua on Saturday afternoon by the score of seven goals to six, after an extra period had been called for in order that a winner might be named. The weather was damp and dis agreeable, the field sticky, the game necessarily slow and the at tendance rather bigger than was the case on the previous Saturday. The Cavalry played a slashing, neck or nothing game and their Minutes of a Special Meeting of the Members of the Kauai Loan Fund Commission Held at Lihue, Kauai, August 17, 1911 Meeting called to order at 10 o'clock A. M. by second Vice Chairman Francis Gay. Those present, besides the second Vice Chairman, being J. K. Lota, W. D. McBryde, and J. H. Moragne, En gineer. Absent Marston Campbell, Chairman and H. D. Wishard. Minutes of the previous meeting read and approved. The following bills against "Ap propriation Construction Belt Roads & Bridges' ' County of Kauai, duly approved and ordered paid. Labor Pay Roll. J. H. Moragne. Pay V2 mouth of July $37.30 Bill W. D. McBryde. Stamped Envelopes etc $2.15 Motion duly passed, that the Secretary be instructed to write the Hon. Marston Campbell, Chairman, requesting of him in formation as to what he had ac complished in securing plans and specifications for the purposed New School House, Hanapepe, he hav ing been duly authorized at a meet ing held July 15th 1911, to have plans and estimates made for sub mission to the Commission and its Engineer. The second Vice Chairman stated that he would proceed to the open ing of the bids for work as duly advertised fofj and for which this special meeting had been called. The follc-wiUkr bid for the K.o, 1miiv?1 tali 3?.$qu i, wm vastly improved showing surprised even their most ardent admirers. For the winners Arthur a n d Philip Rice were again the bright, particular stars though .Charlie Rice and Malina showed up much better form than they did a week ago, the former playing a particularly aggressive game and the latter at times maneuvering brilliantly. Per haps the only criticism that can be made against Malina's playing as a whole was a tendency to hold back. Kauai had all the worst of the goal shooting, indeed both sides were weak at goal shots, though perhaps the sodden state of the held militated against accuracy in this direction. The ponies, trained on hard, fast ground, became logy after a period or two of play, as was to have been expected. Luckilv there were no serious accidents despite the fact that the ponies, slithered and slathered all over the shop and on several occasions unshipped their riders. To sum up, the game was a good one from the spectator's standpoint but a poor one from the standpoint of good polo, there being too much digging and bunching up. First Period. Kauai started off with rare dash, and three minutes later Malina put the ball through, almost before the Cavalry had properly got going The latter set about their opponents right away, however, and a shade under two minutes later Sheridan notched a beauty after a brilliant run down with the ball. Kauai, not tq be denied, got possession and things looked a bit parious for the somiers when a satety was made. The period came to an end with the Kauaians in the soldiers' ter ritory and well upon the goal at that.. Score: Kauai, 1; Cavalry, Second Period. A mix-up ensued and Charlie Rice missed an attempt to score It looked like an easy shot. The ball was taken to the other end of the field in short order, but was brought back almost as quickly, and then Malina scored a high goal with a beautifully-judged shot. His brown pony was very fast and could not be headed. The Cav alry, thanks to Hanson and Forsyth then presented for consideration. James K. Kula. For Construct ing Road as per specifications $2850, and 80? per foot for con crete pipe, equaling $200. Totsl $3050. P. Fitzgibbons. For Construct ing Road as per specifications $2490, and $1.25 per foot for con crete pipe, $312.50. Total $2802.50 Upon motion, duly seconded, the bids were referred to the Engineer for report. The following and only bid for the construction of the New Hana- lei Grade was then presented. Geo. W. Mahikoa. Construct ing Road as per specifications $4200. Stone Wall $840, and $1 .25 per foot for concrete pipe, equaling $187. Total $5227. Upon motion, duly seconded, the bid was referred to the County Engineer for report. Upon motion, a recess was taken to allow of the Engineer going over and checking the respective bids. At 11 A. M. the meeting was again called to order. The Engineer then reported on the bids for the Koloa-Lawai, Section 1, Road and recommended that the bid of P. Fitzgibbons be accepted, his bid being the lowest. The recommendation being ac cepted and approved, a motion was made and passed that the Kauai Loan Fund Commission enter into a contract with the said P, Fitz gibbons, he to construct and carry Special Inspectors For Each Plantation If the report that a special health inspector is to be appointed for each plantation, is true, there is much can be said in favor of such move.

The referee was run into by a soldier player and un shipped. He had half a mind tn claim a foul, but thought better of it. i lie Cavalry goal was threaten ed again and the safety-valve un throttled. Shortly after Malina made a little better than atonement in kind by committing a foul. score: Kauai i'2; Cavalry, Wz. Third Period. The Garden Islanders worried the ball along toward the military camp and Arthur Rice narrowlv mi4;pd n diagonal shot. Right on top of it came a goal by Malina. The Ca valry romped down the field with Sheridan in the van, and Hanson took a pot shot which did not come off. Malina got away with the willow and Charlie Rice helped the good work along. Quekemeyer's solid shot sent the ball spinning, but it was well backed by Philip A foul was recored against the Ca valry. Score: Kauai, 2l2 Cavalry, 1 Fourth Period. Hanson got away wit'' i nice hit, which Arthur Rice failed to reco ver. Charlie Rice irot the hall cm- ing the other way and Arthur took it along, but failed on a follow-up stroke Hanson was playing with great vim and his work seemed to hearten his side i n this period. Sheridan took possession near the goal and by clever manipulation scored, though Philip Rice, by be ing caught napping, practically presented the Soldiers with a goal. Malina cot the ball croinc richt mid Arthur tried a long shot, but the- ball hit the pony's legs and dropped dead. It was a sporting chance he took, and it deserved better luck. The game was any one's so far. The Cavalry's rush was checked by Arthur's timely backing. Sheridan dashed through by the sideboards with the ball, and with no one in front of him, scored his second goal of t h c period. Kauai, playing in a bunch, drove the ball within striking distance of the military goal and Philip missed a shot. Both sides were playing strict polo. Malina took a whack and then Charlie Rice d i d the needful, Score: Kauai, 3Hj; Cavalry, 3. Fifth Period. Philip Rice made a good run, but Forsyth robbed him, passing t o Quekemeyer. Arthur Rice revers ed with a beautiful stroke and he and Brother Philip rushed goal ward, two shots being missed by Malina a n d Charlie Rice r e - spectively. The Cavalry, getting the ball, tore along with it amid the cheers of their supporters, but Malina spirited the ball away from the sideboards, only to have it sent Kauaiwards by Sheridan. Forsvth missed at goal twice and Sheridan once. Kauai sought refuge via the safety route. Philip Rice saved the situation by clearing nicely and then the Kauai team went down the field on top of the ball in a pro cession. Forsyth's horse fell, but lie recovered quickly and was up and plaving again without having left the saddle. Philip Rice back ed, but the Cavalry were not to be put off, and Hanson tried a shot without success. Arthur Rice hit and the ball was taken to the coal by Charlie Rice, whose shot went considerably wide of its mark. Score: Kauai, 3 '4; Cavalry, 3. Sixth Period. Charlie Rice scored rient after the recommencement of hostilities. Phihn missed In an attemnt at back- ing, but Arthur pickec' he ball ur and the Kauai pack soon within shooting distat Malina missed a shot by being in too great a hurryi nnd coming again sent the ball outside the post, Sheridan T ISA A most novel and interesting presentation w a s given by Mr. Lydgate's Sunday School children on the church lawn on Sunday afternoon. The affair was a simple play with tableau effects illustrat ing the Sunday School lessons of the current quarter. The'' first act presenting "The Finding of the Law" in 5 Scenes, and the second "The Burning of Jeremiahs Pro phecies" in 6 Scenes. The children were well trained and did themselves credit special praise being due them for clear enunciation and effective delievery. The costumes, though simple and inexpensive, were picturesque and harmonious, and the church steps and vestibule with the help of an ex temporized drop curtain, made an excellent state. Tho niulin consisting of practically all Lihue, was seated on the lawn in the shade of the trees one of the most beautiful and restful spots o u Kauai. Altogether it was.a most original and interesting affair one which we hope may be repeated.
