QUOTATION IN TRAGEDY EARLY MORNING D o i , a Japanese journeyman plumber and sort of "Jack of all trades," shot his wife in the back mauka of Hanamaulu yesterday morning and shortly afterward, in the neighboring cane-field,- turned the weapon on himself, sending five bullets into his own body. The man will probably die, as ho is in such a condition that opera tions are out of tho question. Tho woman will likelv recover. It in stated that Doi and his wife had had family jars for some time, and that another man figured in the case. On account of their troubles tho woman left home. Yesterday morning Doi met his wife in an automobile on a side road above Hanamaulu. He fired one shot which struck her in the back and she fell in tho machine. He quite evidently thought ho had killed her. The woman was rushed to the hospital and a search was instituted for the would-be murderer. Ho Avas found in the cane field a short dis tance away from the first shooting, with five bullet wounds in his body and in a state of collapse from loss of blood. Doi came to Kauai from Hono lulu about a year ago to work on the plumbing of the new house of Mr. F. Weber. He met the woman here and married her on July 12, last.- It was his intention to open a plumbing establishment in tho now Tip Top building, Lihuo. Police Officers Enoka Lovell and Kalei Montgomery found him in tho cane field after the double shooting. The Mokiharia Club The Mokihana Club met on Tues day afternoon, December 5.

A committee, consisting of Mrs. Thurtcll, Mrs. Robertson and Mrs. Winter was appointed to have charge of this matter.

Christmas, a scenic artist who has toured tho other islands and has recently exhibited his sub jects at the University Club, in Ho nolulu, will shortly arrive on Kauai to remain several weeks.

A HE I FINOS 10NG BED A prominent citizen of Lihue, whoso family is away at present, had an unusual experience in the early hours of yesterday morning. He was awakened from his own slumbers by the snoring of someone in tho house. Realizing at once that something out of the ordinary was eventuating (as an Englishman might say), lie pulled himself to gether and started on a very still hunt for the snore and tho snorer. The nasal music led him out to his sleeping porch, which he had not occupied for several nights on ac count of the cold, damp atmos phere, and there, comfortably en sconced in the lied, was a Hawaii an, with clothes and hoots on, "dead to tho world," except for the snore, which ho was keeping up with tho vigor of the Lihue band playing march music. "What arc you doing hero?" de manded the lord of the castle, at the same time giving the intruder a good shaking. "I been Lihue", explained the native, "and had one h good time. Now I back homo in Wai mea. ' ' A light dawned on tho Lihue man at once, lie explained matters to the intruder ami there was one sur prised Hawaiian in that house in stanter. It may bo of interest to know that the fellow got back to his home in Waimea and will probably simi the pledge if some good prohibitionist will call around there to see him.
