Mrs. Ileapy was splendid ly endowed with a physical frame of strength and abounding vitality. She had a largeness of power and an overflowing vigor whicl opened the way for the free entrance of her Ambience into every one she met. "shc was also a woman of unusual culture. Growing up in a home de voted to tho cause of education, un der a father whose life had been given to training tho young, she had the advantage not only of sound instruction but also of wide travel while still young. She disciplined herself to observe, acquired several foreign languages and throughout life maintained a close acquaintance with the best things the world over. It was a delight to converse with her, her knowledge was so accurate and so inclusive. Her scholarship was not technical but human, for it was the human touch that always appealed most deeply to her. Best of all, she had a cultured spirit. rnr. folt. in her instinctlv the pres ence and dominance of a soul that had known the discipline of long and varied spiritual experience. All these elements combined to form a personality of rare beauty. And all that she was and had was lavishly given to others. She was irresistibly drawn to eveiyone because every fellow human being was a child of the Great Father and therefore her -jfcrolhor, her sister. Her dominat ' ing characteristic was love for oth ers, prompting her to serve them. She was beautifully unselfish. It was natural to her to give herself generously to children, to unman ageable girls, to any one of any race or any social status, and all in the simplest, most friendly way possible. One could not but feel in her the touch of the Master. In the best sense she was a woman of tho world, a typo of tho .golden ago dawning in this world. Because she loved much, she was much be loved and many a life is richer for her strengthening friendship. Such a character lives on in the convic tion of all who know her. If God lives, then' this spirit which held so much of the Great Father, can never die. Was not this what Jesus meant when he said, "Because I live ye shall live also."? Division Tax Assessor J.- K.

The former which was under the suspices of tho Waimea Literary Club, was largely attended and much enjoyed. The latter was given for the benefit of a branch of Red Cross work. Ladies of Lihue were quite diligent in disposing of tickets, so ! that a neat sum was realized. It is so seldom that Kauai has the opportunity of hearing real music that expressions of delight with both of these entertainments have been generally heard. Chas.

At a recent meeting of the gen eral committees of the Rural Y. M. C. A. at the home of Mr. Loomis, lileele, it was decided to approve of the development of a Territorial 'organization of the interests and activities of the Y. M. C. A., with a central committee in Honolulu, and Messrs. Brandt and Lydgate were .elected members-representa tives of Kauai to that committee. Attention was called to the open door and the urgent need for.Y. M. C. A. welfare work among that large and steadily increasing ele ment of our population, the Filipi-. nos; they are a most anienablo people, and are eagerly reaching out for just that sort of thing. There should be a special Secretary who could give his whole time to this work. The lion in the way, how ever, is tho very considerable ex pense of such a new departure. It was decided to commend this work to the Kauai Planters Association, as most valuable and profitable wel fare work, in the interest of labor efficiency, and labor contentment, with the hope that they might as sist in finuncing it. At the close of the, meeting Mrs. Loomis treated the Committee to delicious refreshments, in which the ladies participated. FARffl AND FOX ON MOVIE BILL Fox Film Corporation sends one of its leading stars and one of its strongest offerings to Kauai theaters today. William Farnum is the star and ''A man of sorrow" is tlio pho to-drama, it is a typical Fox film and a typical Farnum vehicle. It should register a decided hit with patrons of the theaters whose appe tito for melodrama is largo and usually well satisfied. The story is one long series of tense situations in which, for a while it looks as though Vrong would conquer right. The reverse, however, is a fact but not until the bitterest diegs of sorrow have been sipped by the man in tho case, al so the woman. The finale is about as strong as that of any Fox photo play thus far sent to here and William Fox takes a keen do light in strong finishes. Farnuni has the support of a big Fox cast. Bonus Money Here The bonus money to be paid to plantation laborers on Kauai arrived at the banks and some of the plan tation offices last week and at a number of places will be distrib uted today. About 8750,000 will bo paid out. Tho money is in paper currency, so paper money will b quite common on this island in the next few days. A rumor is around that many Filipinos will use their bonus money to try to reach and establish them selves on the Coast.

AMONG THE CHURCHES Thanksgiving was observed as usual at the Lihue Union church with a special service. The decora tions, which constituted an impor tant part of the service, were unique and appropriate, consisting mainly of fruits and agricultural products, very tastefully and effectively ar ranged in large masses. Mrs. Car ter, who was decorating committee for the month, was assisted by a number of volunteers, who made light work of the task. Seldom has the church looked better. By way of special music Mrs. W. II. Grote sang "Unto tho Hills;" a beautiful thing, and rendered with very fine effect. Mr. Lydgate's theme was "Making the Best of Things" with some interesting and searching applications to local con ditions. The congregation was the largest Thanksgiving one in history of, the c'lurch. SUNDAY KORNING The gem of the service on Sunday morning, at the Lihue Union church was the, duet, "I will magnify The Lord," by Mrs. II. L. Sheldon and Miss M. Wood. It was a rare bit of music, as difficult as beautiful, such as only the accomplished vocal ist could render; it was done to a fine finish that delighted all who heard it. " The church looked very pretty in white and yellow chrysanthemums; the work of Mrs. A. S. Wilcox. AT ELEELE At Eleelo there was an unusually good audience, with a commendahly large proportion of young men. A really fine rendering of the hymns gives welcome evidence of tho new stimulus and enthusiasm that is abroad there in church matters, and does credit to the newly organiz ed choir. Mr. Jesus Fined A Lihue Portuguese named Man uel Jesus, while learning to drive a Buick "Six", ran into the ear of Win. Kuhhnan, also of Lihue, in front of Francis Gay's plaee, Wai mea, Sunday afternoon. Kuhl- nian's car was turned completely over and badly damaged.
