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.
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?
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.

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

A Thanksgiving Talk
Rev. J. M. Lydgate Delivers Interest

'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

In our own class, in our own
homes we avoid infectious a n d
contagions, we sanitate and
ventilate and disinfect and hedge
ourselves about by all sorts of pro
phylactic measures but our servants
go into the camps and bring back
the infections developed there by
unsanitary conditions and failing
servants there is always money as
a traveling means of infection and
failing that the ubiquitous
mosquito. 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

. t H. RICE
Hon. W. H. 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,
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. Rohng met her in Honolulu
and accompanied her home. Mrs.
Rohng is one of our social leaders

her host of friends who hastened
to express their delight in having
her once more among them.

Manacer B. D. Baldwin of the
Hawaiian Sugar Co., Makaweli,
has given a piece of land which lies
opposite the baseball park to the
Japanese for the purpose of erect
ing a Buddist lemple thereon.
Mr. Baldwin! it is said, will also
assist in the construction of the
temple. The Japanese have
formerly expressed their apprecia

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.

What we recently called '"little
Red Angels of Mercy" in Hono
lulu are coming to Kauai, accord
ing to a notice just received by
Tub Gapdrn Island from the
Anti-Tuberculosis League in the
apital city. 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
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
