The dusty road between Hana
maulu and Kapaa, as the result of
preparing for macadam, is about
the worst to be imagined. Of course
this cannot be helped now, but
what in the dickens is the matter
with that Kekaha bunch who made
such a stew about having rock on
the ground, etc., if our outfit
would but go over? Somebody has
flunked and it isn't the county
this time. The delays due to a
shortage of crushed rock, h a s
caused the present dusty condition
above referred to. "We'll furnish
the rock, all right, if you'll come
over," said a prominent man. But
did he do it? Nixie.
Public Schools Open
The public schools throughout
the island opened for their fall
term yesterday morning, and a
large increase over the previous
year is reported. A shortage of
teachers is reported, while some
slight changes have been found
necessary in the teaching staff. K.
B. Bridgewater has been placed in
charge of the Hanamaulu school,
Mrs. Bridgewater, owing to ill
health, being unable to teach.
Pineapple Experts
Within the last few days, Kauai
has been scrutinized by two pine
dapple experts, with a view of pass
ing judgment on the future possi
bilities of the juicy fruit. Kapaa
homestead lands came in for con
siderable attention and there is
little doubt but that sometime in
the near future, we will see these
lands litterally covered with this
valuable crop.

The directors of the K. A. A.

Miss Waggoner's absence. 1 recommended,
"Territory vs. Pihaleo, ' t
roads the indictment which forces
the necessity o f exposing t h c
aucestorial histoi y of a wonderful
cow, whereby hangs a tail. From
evidence produced, it seems than
something like ten yeais ago, a
c;ilf c.une into existence in the
vicinity of Homestead. This fact
alone however, would be of no
passing interest, but when the said
calf became surrepptuously pur
loined by some unknown person
or persons, considerableimportance
began to surround t h e inncent
bovine. Its former owner recalled
that it had ceitain spots on its
right hind leg. that it bore many
other familiar marks, among which
was a solit ear.
Following the disappointment
which the disappearance of such a
valuable calf occasions, there was
nothing but a sigh now and again
as the former owner had visions of
the ten quarts of milk which some
one must be realizing on his loss.
Ten years glide by, when lo and
behold the calf reappears in the
shape of a beautiful cow. Yes,
there are all the tell-tale marks,
even to the split ear. With the
instincts of a detective Bums, the
former owner began an investiga
tion which culminated in the pre
sent owner, M r . Pihaleo being
haled before the court for the op
portunity of explaining how he
came to be in possession of said
cow. The former owner believed'
in getting all that was his due and
consequently asked for not only
Bossy herself, but all her family of
children for whom she has been res
ponsible. After due and weighty
consideration by the jury, a verdict
was given in favor of the defendant.
1 he case was also aided by the .
police department with a view to
locate if possible, culnrits who are
in the habit of branding cattle
which does not belong to them.
The case in question, however,
was one in which mistaken identi
ly played the chief role.
An Oahu Pineapple

Mr. Karnes, the Oahu Pineapple
King, accompanied by Henry C.
Brown of Waimea, passed through

Diptheria Flag Still
Floats High
The yellow flag still floats in
the village of Kapaa. However,
there is no danger of an epidemic
and the health officials are hope
full of eventually locating the
source from which the disease
conies. The fact that diptheria
breaks out in so many different
places places where never before
has there been known t o have
occurred a case, puzzles the offi
cials. Private School Be
