WHAT IS OR ARE EUGENICS Dijar Gardkn Island: I hear that the ladies of Lihue have started a new Club which they call the E'lgenics Club which is under the charge of Mrs. Lydgate and Mrs. Dean and meets once a week at the home of Mrs. Lydgate. Now I am a poor uneducated man belonging to those long ago days befone the women folks took charge oftthe earth socially and intellectually and somewhat even financially any how as far as ex penditure goes and I would like to know what is or are Eugencis any way. Is or are they some kind of breakfast food or some kind of contagious disease or some kind of wild 'animal? You know most everything, Mr. Garden Island, will you kindly tell me what they is or are? I think very highly of these two estimable ladies, and all the other sisters who venture into that Eugenics menagerie and I do beg them to bo careful and not get caught by those wild animals or those contagious diseases. Please do be careful dear ladies! I wonder how you feel Mr. Gar den Island about those ladies and that wild animal Club. When I look at the big holes i n my socks and the buttons off my pants and the ragged state of my shirt I wonder to myself. Can it be . a mission from the Lord for these ladies thus to pursue this or those - Eugencis. What do you think about it Mr. GAKfiWN Island? Ignoramns. We have referred this letter to " well he is an IgribrameV s ur e enough. Why any school boy could tell him that Eugenics is the science of "huproving things es pecially human beings and that the name comes from two Greek words meaning well-bred. And as to the defects of his stockings and pants and shirt they are as nothing to the evident defects o f his i n -telligence and that Eugenics i s just what he needs." Band Concert Good The band concert of the park last Sunday afternoon was attend ed by a large and appreciative audience. The afternoon was ideal, the program was an ex cellent one and artistically render ed. The Lihue band boys a s popular an aggregation of musi cians is to be found in the Ter tory and Kauai certainly feels proud of them. Local and Personal D. B. Murdoch was a Kinau arrival. Ben Vickers returned to Hono lulu Saturday. Thomas Cliffe was an arrival on Wednesday's Kinau. Mrs. J. Weddich and child, ar rived on Wednesday's boat. Mrs. E. H. Mahlum of Waimea came down in Wednesday's Kinau. Mrs. Bandamann and son re turned from Honolulu Wednesday. Contractor McDonald left for Honolulu Saturday on "a business trip. The country is saved. Wood roy.Wilson went to church Sun daff Mrs. G. C. Hofgaard was n re turning passenger on the Kinau Wednesday. Frank Crawford returned Wed nesday from a brief business trip to Honolulu. Miss M.

Kaiwi returned from Hono- Julu bv the Kinau. v lohn Naleimaile a police official of Koloa was u returning passen ger on Wednesday's Kinau. HER FRONT LOOKS BETTER The Nawiliwili water front was at least treated to one thorough cleaning up when last week Sheriff Rice acting upon the suggestion of Inspector Frank Cook, put prison laborers to work o n the unsanitary and unsightly piles ot debris which represented an ac cumulation of several mouths. It might well be termed "clean up day'' for at the end of the day's work, the water front presented a n entirely transformed appear ance. ' The unity with the Sheriff's De partment alid the Sanitary officials in pulling together for the main tenance of better conditions, sanitary, is very gratifying indeed and evidences the fact that n o mistake was made in the retention of the head of the police depart ment. Nawiliwili being the center of attraction in so much as most people" both leave and return to Kauai through this port, it 'is necessary that great care should be exercised in keeping the part in a sanitary condition. Inspector Cook is a valuable man, which is proven in the fact that he gets all the as sistance be requires from the various plantations. Now that the Nawiliwili people have seen what clean up day really means to them, it should not be difficult to do a little more individual work in the future. J. A. Hogg To Coast The many friends of our well known fowntfellpwman JA. Hogg will regre't to'jearn of Ins sudden departure for San Francisco to which place he goes for treatment under D r .

Lydgate Delivers Interest ing Address at the Union Church to 'Appreciative Audience - There was a special service' ap propriate to the occasion -at .the Union Church on Thanksgiying Day. Mr. Lydgate's address Was from the strange text "Ephraim is a cake not turned" and.jdwelton tne unterences ana antagonism oi the upper and lower crusts of society. It was in part as follows; ' 'The social unrest of the time o'f the prophet Hosea is typical of the same, o r a worse condition o f thing, in these times. The upper and the lower crusts are more hetergenous and more antagonistic than ever. The extremes of wealth and poverty are farther apart than ever, and the discrepancy is steadi ly growing. One of the most hackneyed phrases of the day, is yet one of the truest. The rich are growing ever richer and the poor poorer. There has been no poverty in the world's history to be compared with that of the slums of our great cities. It is the burned under crust, sacrificed to the ex travagance, the dissipation of the upper crust. In still another way is modern society rent into two antagonistic extremes. The forces of industry are more and more deeply cleft in to two apposing ranks, more and more closely organized and more and more bitter in their attitude toward one another. It is the antagonism of the upper and lower crusts each seeking to sacrifice the otHer. The cake however is one and must remain one. We cannot se parate the layers. We would like to.

So we are continually exposed to the contagions of the community and are continually "catching" colds and fevers and measles and mumps. The under crust is close beneath us and we may not ignore it. And morally it is even more in evidence We may bcil the money, as we did once, years ago, we may screen against the mosquito, we can hard ly boil the language of every day speech or disinfect the ideas of current thought.

Rice Commissioner of Education left for Honolulu Saturday to be in attendance at a meeting of the Board of Education in Honolulu. On arriving from the States recently he ran right into a meeting of the commis sioners, but as he was unprepared t o intelligently discuss buJgets, etc., with first-hand knowledge, his request for a postponement of the meeting until he could ac quaint himsslf with the necessary facts was granted. As a result lit is in attendance at the meeting probably the best fortified with necessary data than any other commissioner. A u d he'll know just what to do and how to do it, too. Waimea Generous The Waimea Japanese Aid Society administrators of the Wai mea Japanese school has received a generous gift from the Waimea Plantation. The Plantation will present the society with a check for $100.00 in the early part of this mont;h, the amount representing an annual donation. T h e Waimea Plantation has been most liberal in its policies toward the public schools and other public and religious institutions in which its employees are more or less in terested, which accounts in a great measure for the popularity of the management of the plantation.

Mr. Baldwin! it is said, will also assist in the construction of the temple. The Japanese have formerly expressed their apprecia tion. Eleele Has Dance The Eleele Hall was the scene of gaiety last Wednesday evening the occasion being a dance given by the McBryde Plantation boys Educating Filipinos The director of education of the Philippine Islands, who is visiting in the States, says, in speaking of the hilipiuos: "We are not trying to make good Americans of them, but we arc trying to make good Filipinos of them, and we are succeeding, too. We have established, as general as possible throughout the ar:hipelago, an educational system which we hope will give the greatest possible number o f islanders the kind o t education which will do them the greatest possible good as islanders." An enrollment of over half a million children in the public schools, taught and supervised by over nine thousand American and iMlipiuo teacners, witu very practical courses of study from the primary grades up through the professional colleges of the Philippine University, seems t o substantiate the conclusion of the Director of Education.

For several years the sale of the "Red Cross Seals" in the interests of the campaign against the great white plague has been a n annual Christmas event in the Territory, but hereto fore Honolulu has been about' the only place of sale. This time part of the four hundred thousand that have just arrived will be sent to Kauai and sold here. These little stamps are printed by the American Red Cross Society and tens of m'llions are sold every year in the United States. So pre valent has their use become in holiday time, indeed, that few letters pass through the Christmas mails nowadays without a R e d Cross Seal riding on the back of the envelope. A decision of the postal authorities last year pre vents their use on the address side of the envelope anymore as the foreign posts kicked about having to handle them. The College Club, the associ ation o f Honolulu sosicty and club women that lias been such a factor for good in the capital, are already organizing for the sale of the stamps and will make ' a one w eek,'s campaign of it from Dp- teinlier 2 ?olSNo"word riTaS' been- feceivedltefef'fty. e. t .as'totwhat methods of sale will be adopted in this county. These stamps are a penny apiece and the total results of the sale should be in the neighborhood of $4000. This sum will be placed in the extension fund of the Anti-Tuberculosis League which is devoted to the extension of the campaign against this disease outside of Ho nolulu and to other nationalities beside the English speaking resi dents. The counties other than Honolulu will therefore b e the chief beneficiaries of the sale. Dr. Derby Writes A communication to this office from Dr. Derby gives notice ot his inability to return to Kauai until after the first of the vear. Pretty Compliments The Lihue Store (Kauai's Em porium) is out with one of the niftest compliments of the season, in the shape of a dainty little pen knife, two-blade, metal handle, with the firm name raised on each side. Manager Rohrig has adopt ed a unique method in reaching his patrons with these attractive little souvenirs. On Saturday last a handsomely gotten u p notice was mailed to each patron of the big store, expressing appreciation for his or her patronage, and down in the left hand corner ap peared a request to call at the office. When one heeds these in struction and arrives at the office, half wondering w h a t is really going to happen, he is suddenly transferred into halos of delight as one of the pretty little mementos finds its home in the palm of his hand. We sincerely hope that the generosity prompting such a magnificent gift will not become the source of too many cutting remarks. ,H j - There is rumor in the air to the, effect that an orchestra is about to be formed on the other side of the gulch.
