Mr. and Mrs. E. Behr, bride
and groom, the latter being a
brother of Mrs. R. P. Spalding of
Kcalia were arrivals on the Kinau
last Wednesday. Despite the fact,
that the Kinau reached port at 2 A.
,M; a host of friends, supplied with
a bag of rice, old shoes, and canned
music, were at the dock to receive
them. As the small boat, bearing
the bridal couple neared the dock, a
big Victor phonegraph which had
been placed on a car, and rolled to
the end of the wharf', struck up a
wedding march. This evidently
'served as a warning to the young
couple as to what was in store foi
them in the immediate future. The
keen eyes of the reception com
mittee, however, were not to be
outdone and as the boat glided up
to its moorings, showers of rice,
old shoes, 'congratulations, and
great hunks of the wedding march
filled the air.
The groom is quite well known
on Kauai, having spend much of his
time here last year, while the bride
is a member of a prominent
Pasadina California family. They
will make Kealiu their future
