THE GOOD ANGEL OF ANAHOLA
Mrs. Lai for many years the princi
pal of the Anahola School has com
pletely won the confidence- and affec
tion of tho little community there, be
sides having made good to an uncom
mon degree in her school work.
Of late she has paid special atten
tion to the needs of tho under nourish
ed children of whom there are a good
many in Anahola. She has been giv
ing the needy ones nourishing lunches
with a malted milk or cocoa base.
This has pulled these children up sur
prisingly besides furnishing an extra
incentive for them to come to school
and do their best In. tho school work.
Mrs. Lai is a veritable benefactress to
this little community. .

The Makawell Fourth of July cele
bratlon on Saturday was an unprcce
dented success which outran anything
known in tho history ofthe Island or
at any rate the Western side of it.
Everybody from the Plantation and
the whole outlying country was there,
there wero about 2000 of them, and
everyone had a wonderfully good time.
There was not a hitch or a slow mo
ment In tho whole day, and every
body went homo at midnight, tired
and dusty perhaps but full of joy and
enthusiasm over tho success of Maka

The dance in the evening given by
tho Japanese girls was ' in' keeping
with the rest and was exceedingly
Jtopular and full of life and action.

WASHINGTON PLACE WEDDING
On Saturday afternoon Miss Helyn
Shlmfenlg of Koloa became tho
wife of Emmet B. Gerald at Washing
ton Place, Mrs. Carl Roendahl being
tho matron of honor and Guy Had4
dock the best man. Tho bride was
very attractive in a pretty gown of
crepe de meteor and shadow lace with
a modish georgette hat. The ceremony
(was performed by the Rev. E. T.
Sherman of Central Union Church.
Every youngster that is big enouj$i
to shoulder a hoe, or handle a sickle,
has joined the forces of the working
man, and put himself ostensibly in line
for the 500 per cent bonus that may be
due at the end of the month. There
is one gang on the Lihue Plantation of
over a hundred of them, little tads
mostly, whose lunch pails loom up
bigger than they do. Very efficient, and
very chipper for two or three hours
in the morning they wilt down and
grow weary and weepy about tho
middle of the long, hot, hungry fore
noon. However there is good stuff in
them, and no small amount of "gin
ger" so that they stick it out day after
day, and it looks as though most of
them would make the bonus.
CAR CRIBBED AND WRECKED
It isn't safe to leave your car out
side unattended, while you go inside to
"trip the light fantastic" at least not
at Kapaa. The Gomez Garage chauf
feur did that Saturday night, mean
while tho man from Maui borrowed
the car, a fine Cole Eight, and went
for a moonlight ride with perhaps
moonshine" contingensies, with the
jesult taht he came to grief over a
bank that pretty well wrecked the car.
The man from Maui, who it seems Is
un old hand at this sortVof thing is
now in jail under arrest, and the car is
in the shop for repairs.
The Klnau was crowded to over
Ilowlng coming down last Thursday
night, some 140 first class passengers.

Honolulu papers report that Col.
Newcomer of tho U. S. A. Engineer

received from Kauai In regard to rail
facilities for Nawlliwlll are satisfac
tory to the War Department and that
tho Fedoral appropriation will be avail
Itble whenever the other conditions
have been complied with.
The most significant of these is tho
provision in advance of the $200,000

Bonds to that amount however can

Welcome tho Tuesday evening depart
ure of the Klnau from Ahuklnl at 8
p. m. It is much more expeditious and
comfortable to board the steamer on
a gang blank than by means of a long
boat trip; and S o'clock is a much
more convenient time of departure
than 5, considering the time of ar
rival at the other end.
There Is however one drawback, and
that is the road to Ahukini, it is
rough and dangerously narrow, espe
cially for night traffic. It should be

CHINESE VS. CHINESE
After thirteen Innings of play on
Friday afternoon at Kapaa, the game
between the All-Chinese and tho A.
C A. of Honolulu was called off with
the score standing at S all. Probably
duo to the effect of seasickness, tho
lids fi-om Honolulu played like bush
leaguers in the early Innings, but as
the game progressed they showed
what they could do when hard pressed.
The ending of the sovonth Inning
found the Honolulu boys at the short
end of a 7 to 1 score, but ground balls
hit to K. M. Ahana, playing second for
the local team, were going through his
legs like water through a sieve. Solo
mon Wong was called in from left to
fill the gap but he did worso than his
predecessor, with the result that tho
ninth inning ended with tho score at
seven all. Both teams made a run In
the 11th and thereafter no runs wero
scored. Arthur Wong and Lee-Wing
pitched for the locals and Bung Chung
and Chang for tho visitors.
The All-Around-Chinese Journeyed
f.o Makawell on Saturday and before a
'.arge holiday crowd blanked the locals
by the large score of 9 to nothng. You
Chung, pitching for the visitors, was
in rare form, nllowing only two hits,
striking out seven, walking none and
in addition slammed out a three bag-
;er scor'ng a runner from first. Only
hree locals managed to reach first
.nil no man reached second. In six of
the nine innings, the home team's
players went out in one, two threo or
der, all making pop flies and easy
rounders or fanning. One error by
Tyau at third In the first inning let
Burgess on first and Henderson and
Spalding get on through singles, but
the former was caught ten feet off sec
ond when he attempted to steal, and
Spalding was stranded after his sin
gle. Shipp Lo, star outfielder of the
McKingley team of the Interscholastic
League, played a great game, getting
wo hard chances and made two hits,
one being a double over tho left field
Tho Chinese scored four runs in tho
third, four in the fifth and one in tho
seventh. In tho third, after You Chung
was retired by Maderos and Henderson,
Uce Kai was given a free ticket, but
Wah Han filed to center. Chun Chew
ilso coaxed a ticket from Robello after
Loe Lai had been hit by the pitcher,
filling the bases with two down. Shlpp
Lo busted a hot one thru the box
which Maderos would not handle and
Lee Lai and Lee Kai scored. Robello
bootod Bun Heo's grounder and tho
bases were again populated. "Junk"

batter's box to hit the ball, but Chun
Chew scored on this grounder. Young
Yuen hit a fly to Spalding back of sec

catch. Tyau singled to loft and You
Chung trlppled, Tyau scoring but

to stretch his hit Into a home run. Tho
other run scored by the visitors came
n the 7th. Shipp Lo filed to center, but
Bun Heo was safe when Spalding lost
track of lis grounder. Bun Hee stole
