ng, a new county courthouse, the
Lihue Store's big concrete build
ing, Frank Crawford's handsome
new residence, and new additions
to the Hotel Fairview will give the
town a real city-like appearance.

The floral parade is over for the

to plan for a bigger one in 1914.
Uncle Sam should step over the
Mexican border and give the in
habitants of that region a taste of
what real war means.
Instead of hunting up provin
cialisms in the country newspaper
we would suggest to the big city
papers that they send their re

schools. The other day one of

another spelled omnibuses with

Peru and Bolivia and the prospects
are that we will have to Peruse

President Wilson will retain
Mrs L. A. Jaffray, President Taft's
housekeeper. Isn't that a burning
shame when the country is chock
full o f democratic housekeepers
looking for jobs?
And now the Treasury Depart
ment is to reduce the size of paper
money by one third. We presume
that this is done to correspond with
its purchasing power.
Since the discovery of the Pearl
Harbor disaster rests upon the re

opinions will probably result.

Officers of the war department

together and licked George Third

If Mr. Wilson would do some
thing which would gain him the
everlasting gratitude of every loyal
.American citizen, about the first
thing he would do when he takes
up the reins of government, would
be to take a fall out of the Mexicans

Americans who happen to be in the
wake of their fanatic spasms. Tosil

be shot dov n as so many dogs, and
not raise a hand in reply to their

About ever so often the U. S.
treasury department sends out its
nonsensical statement about the
per capita wealth of this country
and recently a lot of people wrote
to the national treasurer asking
for their per capita share and of
course the department had to reply
tnat the per capita circulation is
computed on a theoretical basis.
When a f e w capits have nine-
tenths of all the wealth in the
country, it is ridiculous to tell the
man who can't buv a ham sand
wich that his per capita share of
wealth is the same as Rockefeller's.

Climate is Changing
A discovery has been ma de
by scientists in Alasks that leads
to the belief that one time that part
of -the globe enjoyed a tropical
climate. Ironical growth has
been brought from the bowels
of the earth which is said
to have been impossible' to have
been placed there in any other man
ner than by natural growth. The
same scientists support this theory
by declaring that the Gardeu of
Eden was located near the North
pole, giving as evidence of this
fact, the location of a certain star
referred to in the bible, claiming
that from no other point in the
world could this star be seen.
They also figure that climatic con
ditions are rapidly changing, and
that the time will come when a
narrow strip of what is now the
whole world, will be left.
TJi a t where tropical climate
exists at present, the climate will
become too cold for life to exist,
and that where it is at present too
cold for life to endure, it will be
come so warm as to make it im
possible to live. One thing about
this wonderful piece of scientific
discovery which is not so bad, is
the fact that Uncle Sam's .domain
has been selected as that "remain
