A Perilous Adventure
A water buffalo, ordinarily -is the
sleepiest and logiest animal that
waddles the earth, too slow to
switch the flies off. But not always
A friend of ours ran across one the
other day that was different; he
was game for anything that4was go
In-securcly tethered and resent
ing intrusion ' i n his hono-hono
swamp the great big beast, hory
eyed and snorting like a chimera,
took after his visitor at close range,
broke away from Iu3 tether and was
coming like a vision of sudden
death. Flight is tlio only thing m
a case like that; but flight in a deep
.hono-hono swamp is out of the
question ; our friend tried it ; one
lungo and down ho went, on all fours,
into the mud, with the resigned as
surance of immediate destrution
This tumble, however, so upset the
buffaloes program that ho fetched up
standing, smellcd his fallen victim
and turned snorting away. The
victim, needless to say, has now a
very largo respect for tho water buf
falo and. will treat him, henceforth,
with respectful and distant courtesy,
On the Beach at Waiohai
Mr, and Mrs. Charles H. Wil
cox gave a most enjoyable swim
ming party at their Waiohai beach
house, Koloa, Saturday afternoon,
in honor of Edith tin(l Juliet Rice
and Eleanor and Loilani Scott,
Somo two dozen or more of the
younger people, with a few of their
elders as chaperons, participated.
Needless to say, a most delicious
supper followed the bath, which m
every caso went to the right spot.
They returned early in the evening.

All-Students Take
Away the Odd Game
Kauai likes baseball. This fact
was again demonstrated on July
4th, when the biggest crowd cvor
assembled in Lihue Park gathered
to witness the games botweon tho
All-Students, of Honolulu, and the
All-Portuguese, of Kauai, in the
forenoon, and the All-Students and
all-Ivauai's m the afternoon. There
were in tho neighborhood of two
hundred and fifty automobiles
parked within the grounds.
The visiting All-Sttulcnts broke
even on the day's games, winning
the morning game from the P. A. C.
6 to 1 and losing ,to the All-Kauai
team 5 to 6.
In tho game with the Kauai High
school on Thursday afternoon the
visitors again demonstrated their
superiority by winning 0 to 3. This
was tho frfstest game of the series
and was any body's game up to tho

A Happy 'Day In Sight
We rejoice in the official assur
ance that the reconstruction and
macadamizing of the belt road will
bo finished by tho 15 of August.
This will give us a fine hard,
smooth road, barring a few places
that are badly pitted, from Wai-
awa to Wahiha; practically round
the Island.
This is a blessing that no other
Island enjoys, or anywhere near
enjoys, and we have every reason to
by very appreciative and very grate
ful. Our sister Islands will no doubt
immediately begin to discount and
discredit our satisfaction and sug
gest various reasons why we need
not be unduly 1 'set up' ' over our
accomplishment; that we have got
only a small bit of an Island; and
only one road, very narrow and
vory shallow; and that it doesn't
go much more than half way round
anyway, etc. etc.
To all of which wo would say;
"We've got our road and arc enjoy
ing it ; you can go ahead and talk
if you want to, but we would ad
vise you to put your energy onto
your own roads."

The good work so auspiciously
bemin bv Mrs. Erin Knndson for
tho benefit of the American Red
Cross, has fallen. in her absenco, for
tho bummer in the mountains, to
the no less efficient leadership of
Mrs. C. B. llofcanrd who hnR taken
hold of it with characteristic enthu
To provide the necessary supplies
for the conduct of the work she
gave a knitting card party on July
3rd. at her home, Paowini, in which
some 28 ladies participated at 25cts
apiece. It is hard to say which was
the most popular, the cards or the
knitting; there was great activity
in both lines.
F roin now on thore will bo regular
weekly meetings for Red Cross work
at Paowini on Friday afternoon at
3 p. m. and all ladies who will help
in tho good work aro cordially in
vited to come.
The Reason Why
A word of explanation is in order
in regard to the Fourth of July pro
gram at the Tip Top. Arranged in
the first instance by the Japanese
young men it was finally taken over
in tho interests of the general pub
lic and the young men found them
selves kind of swept away in the
current of their own affair. This
will explain the somewhat Oriental
flavor of the program as well as its
impromptu character. It was, how
ever, a good start in the right direc
tion. The New Auto Inspector
Henry Aid, the new auto inspec
tor has been on deck since the first
of tho month, and he has been use
fully in evidenco at various points
during this time. He was especial
ly efficient in the matter of parking
and handling tho traffic on the
Fourth. x
Ho is a thoroughly competent
driver of long experience, and ho
gives every sign of making good.
Tho movinir nicturo films this
last week were excellent, especially
tho presentation of Dickens Great,
Expectations, laken with the. in
structive travel pictures they made
a most eniovablo and profitable
evening that leaves no bad tasto in
the mouth.
Mr. L. R. Killam of the general.
Y. M. C. A. was on Kauai last
week for a few days'ih the interest
of his work. Hcisalivays a wel
come visitor, especially among th
young people whose interests he has
so much at heart.
Tho Hui Aloha Society of Hana
lei aro making elaborate prepara
tions for a Fair to be held the end
of July. "In addition to tho usual
needlework display there will be
some lino lauhala mats Which are
hard to get these days.
We have assurances from the
Publicity Committee that the Civic
Convention will go through with a
rush as planned, in spite of. tho
strain and stress of War; indeed
President Wilson requests that such
events as Civic conventions proceed
as usual but with even greater en

in charge of the Sanbbrn household

in a couple of weeks to assume the
duties of County Trained Nurse, va
cated by the resignation of Miss
Mabel Wilcox.
Miss Cecelia Kapulc, a graduate
of the Dressmaking Department of
Kawaiahao Seminary, will be in
Lihuo after July 22nd, and is pre
pared to go out sowing by tho day
Miss Kapulo is well recommended

A Stimulating Program
It was a very fitting choice that
made Mr. Fred Patterson, president
of tho Chamber of Commerce, the
distinctively popular speaker on the
Fourth of July program. Better
than anyone else, locally, ho rcpre
sents the spirit and endowment of
the traditional Fourth of July ora
tor; and better perhaps than any
one else here could, ho stirred the
enthusiasm and admiration of tho
audience by his spirited address. It
was a democratic occasion ; he evi
dently sized up his audience, and
"went for them" as a whole.
Mr. L. R. Killam, who followed
later in tho program, jnado a very
sane and sensiblo address of the
thoughtful and suggestive kind that
stirred the intellect rather than the
emotions; one that almost any man
might carry home and digest with
profit. It was the kind of thing
that would appeal to the moro m
tolligentand discriminating listener,
and with such lie found a vory ap
preciative and responsive hearing.
Tho reading of tho Declaration
of Independence by D. Takeuchi
was clear, sonorous and forcible;
remarkably well done considering
that it was a foreign language to
tho reader, and rather difficult read
ing which would havo taxed the
skill of any of us.
The remarks by W. Watada were
sensible, intelligent and modest,
and were very well put. How many
of our own young men, just out of
school, could havo done any better,
even in their own language to say
nothing of what, they could do in a
foreign' one?
Mr. Brandt, as always, presided
with a dignity and grace becoming
tho occasion; his brief words of in
troduction gave the right key to tho
whole program.
Tag Day is a new experience for
Kauai, and as an occasional event
it is not a bad idea.
At an early hour a couple of doz
en or so of tho leading ladies of Li
huo rounded up at the Red Cross
Headquarters for final instruclions
from the president, Mis.C. A. Rice.
and having received their tags they
set out for the day's campaign.
Iho normal prize was. the Dollar-
.member, some few landed S25
members, and some very few are .
said to havo secured $100 members.
When, after diligent effort, the
dollar wasn't forthcoming the de
mand dropped down ihrough vari
ous stages, until in many cases it
fetched up rather ingloriously at 10
Over and over again, with smil
ing geniality, tho fair solicitors re
turned to the charge, advising, ad
juring, beseeching the bard-hearted
Oriental or Portuguese, in the suit
able brand of Pigeon English, to
contribute his bit and take his tag.
Generally he succumbed. petu-
lently sometimes, but mostly with
tho good grace of the man who is
being fleeced and flattered at the
same timo.
Mostly, everyone entered into tho
spirit, of the occasion and got their
moneys worth out of the experience;
but somo few wore a sour look all
day as though the whole affair dis
agreed with thorn.
Some craftily hid their tags away
out of sight and allowed themselves
to be labored with, at great length,
and then smilingly, productcd them
to tho confusion of the solicitor.
It was a day for, kids' ' on both
sides of tlio line, and many people
will romombor it as a unique ex
Athletic Activities
Running, jumping and throwing
aro the athletics which will keep
the Y. M. C. A. Clubs busy for the
next eight weeks. The clubs from'
Makaweli toTIanamaulu havo taken
to the plan for a series of competi
tive athletic events which -will de
termine tho club championship of
tho ,leaguc. The events will take in
sprints over sixty and ono hundred
yards distances, a two hvndred and
twenty yards heel and toe walking
contest, broad and high jumps,
hop-step-and-jump, baseball throw,
and shot put.
1 he events will bo run oh at each
camp, and scons kept according to
scoring system of tho American
Standard Efheiency Tests." Points
will be kept and posted at each
camp, showing the individual and
club totals. Prizes in the form of
small medals will be given the best
athletes in each club while a pen
nant goes to the club champions.
By the system of points kept it
will bo possible to determine tho
champion athlete of tho Y. M. C. A
Regular club meetings will follow
tho athletic events each week.
Meeting Of The Supervisors
Because of the Fourth of July on
Wednesday the Supervisors met on
Monday y It was a sort of double
barreled meeting, the final session
of tho outgoing Board and thoin
augural session of the incoming one.
In addition to the usual routine'
of business there wero one o r
two items of special importance.
Ono was the inauguration of an au
tomobile Inspector, who will, if ho
does his duty, see to it that auto
mobiles conform to the law in such
mattors as lights, brakes, speed,
Another matter of interest, at
least to thoso concerned, was a raise
in the pay of tho police forca of
$5.00 a month per man. Wo hopo
that this will givo them an increas
ed interest in their work, and
among other things enable them to
keep loose stock off the roads, whero
they do not belong, and whore they
aro a sourco of groat dangor to the
travelling public. With this under
standing we congratulate them.
