SALETZKE HOST ON BOARD Eleele, Kauai, Oct. 16, 1611. Captain and Mrs. John August Saletzke, of the Schooner "De fiance," entertained a circle of Eleele friends on board ship at Port Allen Sunday afternoon, and those who were brave enough to risk the danger of "inal de mer" enjoyed the afternoon immensely. In spite of the day, t h e younger spirits would not be cubed, and dancing was indulged in on the spacious deck. The brisk salt air created keen appetites, which were generously satisfied with a delicious collation served o n deck. The afternoon was all too short, since some of the , timid objected to a perilous pas-, sage with an eccentric Japanese i launch-man after dark.

IS. LYDGATE GIVES TEA I There was a verv picturesque and animated party on the Parsonage 1 Lawn on Thursday afternoon last. i Mrs. Lydgate had invited her neighbors to afternoon tea to meet Rev. Wm. B. Oleson and Mr. Perley Home. It was a congenial ' occasion and for some time it was nip and tuck between the "parson" stories and the "School-Mann" , stories. ! The latter being feminine and gifted with tongues, naturally came 1 out ahead, as soon as they settled down to it. ...f...

Lydgate Gives an Interesting Talk on Tuberculosis, While Other Promi nent Speakers Discourse During several days of last week the Lihue Church has been a center of much activity consequent on the meeting of the Semi -annual Asso ciation of the churches of Kauai together with the Sunday Schools and C. E. Societies connected there with. From "early morn till dewy eve, ' ' prayer and praise reports and discussions were kept agoing, and the church yard was the scene of constant animation. Among many matters of interest the following are perhaps the most important: The first steps were taken pre paratory to the coming of the An nual Association t o Kauai next Summer by apportioning to the va rious churches their quota to be raised for entertainment of this body and by appointing a com mittee to be responsible for the music on that occasion. A request came from the Kapaa Church for permission to solicit funds throughout the Island for the construction of a suitable parsonage at Kapaa. The Minister there, with most commendable patience, has lived in a shack for many years, under conditions of great inconve nience, and it is high time that he had a decent house to live in. It being the practice of the Associa tion to grant such permission only by way of supplement to faithful endeavors of the church making the request, it was voted that the Ka paa people should first secure $300 locally after which they would be authorized to seek outside aid. 1 This was satisfactory to them and they will at once set to work on these lines The parsonage they , have in mind will cost about SSOO. There was considerable discus sion on the subject of church yard cemeteries. The proper care of these cemeteries involves more or less expense, which in some cases j falls heavily on the struggling church, and yet the outside com-1 munity expects to use this ceme-' tery. What should be the attitude of the church? There wns a pretty ' common concensus of opinion, that i while the church should be as libe ral as possible, it could not fairly be expected to bear this burden without assistance, and that out siders availing themselves of such accommodation should make some payment for the tune. Under the head of support of the ministers Rev. W. B. Oleson, Sec. of the Hawaiian Board assured the Association that it had been his constant effort to raise the salaries of the ministers to a minimum of $400 a year. Kauai had been much better provided for, in this. respect, than some other Islands, because of wealthy and generous friends of the churches resident here, but if there was need here of assistance the Board would endea vor to meet it. Rev. J. M. Lydgate called atten tion to the serious inroads made in our population by Tuberculosis; and suggested simple measures of prevention. Mr. Oleson gave a very graphic and interesting account of the pageant "Darkness to Daylight" witnessed last Summer in Boston by many thousands which gave in dramatic form, partly historical, partly imaginary a representation of the coming of Christianity to Hawaii. The minister's class, conducted by Mr. Lvdgate. awakened a irood ileal of interest in the criticism of the sermon outlines placed upon the black-hoard and commented on Ohe by one.

On this coming Sunday we are going to play with the Road boys. On Tuesday, Oct. 17, Mr. Brodie, the Supervising Principal, visited our school.
