AN ECHO FROM
THE DIM PAST
Tin; Editor,
"Gardkn Island"
Dear Sir,
Time was when the stirring shout
"Wikiwiki! Japanee!", cutting
the morning stillness, had a magic
potency peculiarly its own. That
was during the years of contract
labor, those halcyon days for plan
tation managers, when the growing
of cane was, compared with these
times of anxieties and worries, as
easy and as pleauit a task as the
scooping i n of "McBryde',' fat
dividends (?) when contrasted with
the ever-increasing assessments on
"Oahu" stock (?)
But, and altho' those good old
days are forever gone, it may not
he unreasonable to indulge the hope
that a welcome echo of those care
free times may linger with us for
yet a little longer thro' the medium
of the following doggerel.
Wikiwiki! Japanee!
Scarce has the shrill-tongued chanti
cleer Aroused the nlumb'ring morn.
When, on the gently stirring breeze,
You MX my coat-tails borne;
1 rush along, up hill and down,
Like captive deer f-ot free,
And loud the welkin rings my cry,
Wikiwiki! Japanee!
Nor tropic heat can stay my course,
Nor tropic rains abate
The energy that bums within,
Supreme o'er ev'ry fate;
I'm hen.', I'm there, I'm ev'ry where,
A busy hustling bee,
And cheer the weary with my cry,
"Wikiwiki! Japanee!
The days for me are all too short,
The nights art' all too long;
Cessation cloys my ardent soul
As tho' to rest were wrong:
I toss and turn and twist about,
Such sloth is dead to me,
I must be up and shouting around
AVikiwiki 1 Japanee!
' Ambition claims me for her own,
Heart, body, soul and mind;
The keenest joys this life can yield
Those joys in ber I ibid:
On one great cast my life is bet!
One only goal for me!
My reputation lives in this,
AVikiwiki! Japanee!
Come! rouse ye then, my little men,
And heed nor ache nor pain;
Come! buckle tight your belly-belts,
And at it might main:
Such toil is noble! And your fame
Shall rins; from sea to sea,
Borne on the winds that bare my cry
AVikiwiki! Japanee!
Let Germans growl "Die wacht am
Khein"
The French scream "Marseillaise,"
John Bull with "Hulo Britannia" join
His country's boast to raise,
Columbia "Yankee Doodle" shout
From heaboard unto sea;
Mine is the ringing rousing cry
AVikiwiki! Japanee!
Oh, blest the fato that brought me here
To these fair sun-kissed isles!
"Whoso Guardian (ioddesleainso'er all
Thro' garland-wreath of smiles!
Her favors rare all freely share,
But, 1est, she gave to me
To carve the watch-word of Her Isle
AVikiwiki! Japanee!
Then let death come whene'er it may.
I have not hvetl in vain;
The labor we delight in most
That labor physics, pain: x
The race is o'er; the goal is won;
Fame, smiling, waits tor me,
To write this motto on my brow
"AVikiwiki! Janunee!"

wo delight in physics pain.'

KALALAU LANDING MOST
Swinging 'round the bend ttnd
emerging from the Wainiha Valley,
we come upon a broad expanse of
beach property which i s dotted
over w i t h comfortable summer
homes, property of various mem
bers of the Rice family and the
Wilcox's of Lihue. Upon a knoll
not far distant from the beach is
situated a quaint old church, and
near by this imposing structure is
the Haena public school building
where for ten months out of the
twelve the youthful population of
the district can be seen faithfully
pursuing the elusive "three R's."
Some distance beyond the school,
we come to an immense cave, which
we learn from a guide, is the Haena
dry cave. But a short time was
devoted to exploring this cave, as
it consisted chiefly of a large open
ing in the side of the mountain,
s'oine'lOO feet iu width and extend-'
ing perhaps a hundred yards or so,
into the mountain.
Continuing on, we soon brought
up to another cave, which proved
very similar in appearance to the
Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.
This cave we explored very cau
tiously as our footing at times
seemed somewhat doubtful, owing
to the presence of slippery bould
ers and frequent rivulets. Having
spent some time here, we emerged
once more to the "liquid" sunshine,
and satisfying the inner man as best

we could with a cold lunch, we
headed for Kalalau,
The trail proved it long and dif
ficult one. but much compensation
was gotten from the broad vista of
ocean and mountain which stretch
ed as for as eye could see, the
ocean to the right, the mountain to
the left.
Weary unci tired, we dropped
down into a valley where nestled
a jotting of native houses whose
occupants greeted u s with t h e
courtesy so well known to be one of
the Hawaiian's natural characteris
tics. After disposing of a toothsonit
dinner, we repaired to a large, com
fortable room which proved to be
the living room of our genial host
where until late bed time, we were
entertained with fascinating remi-
niscnces of Hawaiian Folk-lore.
Two days were most cnjoyably
spent on the beautiful sandy beach,
and among these hospitable, but
isolated people, after which we
bade them adieu, and once more
took up the hazardous but very in
teresting trail back to Haena,
arriving home nearly two months
after the beginning of our tour. We
have enjoyed every minute of our
journey and will look forward with
much pleasure to another opportu

Your eloquence strong, like u river of

As the oil that ran down to tho skirts

When Old Aaron anointed his board.
And the tricks that you played, and
