though Mrs. Carden is still confined
to the Queen's Hospital.
Chemical analysis of the "tonic"

of what it consists. Physicians be

Mrs. Carden, that it contains at
least two or three times the quantity
of strychnine called for by the pre
scription. Mr. Carden, who is a clerk in the
Bank of Hawaii, obtained the med
icine from a local drug firm. Both
he and Mrs. Carden took the cus
tomary quantity, which is supposed
to be taken three times a day, and
drove away in their automobile.
They had gone only a short dis
tance when Mr. Carden began to fool
ill. Ho stopped his machine and
stepped out. Hislimbs could scarce

growing blind. Mrs. Carden exper

Baseball At Kawaihau
Two good games were played in the
Kawaihau league on Sunday, tho first
resulting in tho downfall of tho Allies
at the hands of the Liberties, and the
second in the defeat of the Pacifies by
In the first game, which was won by
the scoro of 7 to 4, the Liberty team
surprised the fans by playing rings
around Dan Arcla's Allies, who were
suposed to be tho best all-round team
in the league this season. The win
ners drew first blood in the initial
frame with a single tally when Rapoza
heaved tho pill over Souza's head at
first, with two down, but things looked
pretty gloomy for Aki's warriors when
tho opposition was virtually handed
three runs in the third by Liberty
boots. The Chinese again tallied in
thoir half of the third, but tho losers
made It four to two in tho fourth. In
ho fifth, the Llbertys tied the count
and put the game on Ice by scoring a
brace in tho sixth and another in the
In tho second game, which tho
Pacifies lost to the Farmers by a scoro
of 4-3, the homesteaders gave tho
spectators a shock by playing better
ball than their opponents, who were
favorites to win this year champion
ship. The Pacifies, instead of relying on
their old standby, southpaw Morita,
chose to experiment with Harry Naga
hisa, an unknown quantity, with the
result that four runs in the first two
Innings settled tho argument for the
day. Morita was called in to stop the
opposition in the Becond inning with
two men on bases, and 'he held the
Farmers down without a run for seven
Innings. Teves heaved for the home
steaders and did rather good work in
holding the heavy hitters of the
Pacifies down to three runs.
Next Sunday's games will bo Farm
ers vs Allies, and Llbertys vs Pacifies.

Inado by Chillingworth from a penalty
kick. Tho ball was not more than
ten foot from tho Koloa goal, which
was defended by tho entire Koloa
team, who wero massed between tho

with all thoso boys thero to stop it,
but "Chilly" made a beautiful kick
and sent tho ball like a bullet just
over tho defenders' heads and under

WILLI A M K I CUM OX D
In the passing of William Richmond,
who died a few days ago in Lihue, wo
lose a veritable old Kamaalna of much
character and usefulness.
Born in Tahiti, of American and
Tahitian parents, C2 years ago, he
came to these Islands as quartermaster
of a sailing packet in 1S82. Thoso were
the early days of labor scarcity here,
and coming to Kauai ho "shipped" to
Mr. Wm. Hyde Rice, on a three years
contract. Finding that ho was an in
telligent and mannerly boy, Mr. Rico
asked him if he would act as steward.
Ho replied, "Sure, I bin that before!"
And it soon became evident that he

big six horse team, on his sugar haul

services. "You let me try, it will bo
"Well, what do you know about a
team, you're a steward!"
"Oh, I can drive too. I used to handle
a big six horse team in tho mines in
California." And from that day on ho
was tho crack teamster of Lihue.
Later he became foreman of tho
stables for Mr. Rice, and had charge
'of all the stock. When tho Huleia plan
tation was started, ho was made head
lima, which position he filled with
complete satisfaction for 12 or 15
years, until tho duties became too
heavy for his declining years. For
three or four years back ho has been
on a pension from tho Rices, doing
what work ho felt equal to.
Ho loaves a wife and an adopted son.
Ho also leaves a small estate, part of
which is in Tahiti, where his father
was a sugar planter. He spoke Tahi
tian and French In addition to Eng
lish and Hawaiian.
He was a very capable, efficient and
reliable man, a good husband and
father, and a good all round citizen.
