Schwarz Concert
A Rare Treat
Not only Llhue residents, but
many from all over the island, filled
tho Tip Top theater last Friday ov
enlng, eagerly anticipating the rare
plcnsure before them. For t the fame
of Josef Schwarz, as an artist of
distinction had penetrated even to
this end of tho world where good
music Is a rare traat. Tho conven
tional tfcene of the theator was cov
ered with a profusion of yellow an!
gold hemorachalls, tho bright day
lily which was introduced to the
Islands several
Hans Isenberg,
years ago by Mrs.
Dellcnto blue aga-
panthus waB intorspersed among the
great clusters of gold. It was to Mrs.
.!,, iri M thn vnrv
Isonborg that Kauai owes the very
unexpected privilege of hearing so
great an artist, for as her guest
Mr. Schwarz had consented to give
a concert, tho proceeds of which
should be at her disposal. Truly it
was a princely gut uom 01 oeauiy
and usefulness. The prowded house
brought in proceeds to the amount
of ?700 which, is to be shared by the
Hul Aloha and the Young women's is w hiuuuuuu ui uuuaiisi m u
Christian Association of Kauai. With nection with tho construction of the
one hair the Hawaiian laaies 01
tho Hul Aloha plan to renovate tho
Ilttlo Hawaiian church at Nawiliwin
with tho othei; tho Girl Reserves of
tho Y. W. C. A. will equip their
summor camp, a dream at last come
truo. The graclousnoss of the don
ors will long bo remembered by
many grateful beneficiaries.
Yet even moro poignantly, per
haps, will tho large audience of
Friday night recall tho magnificent
volco which poured out, unstmtou,
in wave upon wave 01 buuuu. wim
tho vory ablo and Bympatnetic as-
slstance of Alexander Smalleus at
mo piunu, wr. ouuwurz ubbuii,
nig out. nis audience a iiuiu ui mai
with tho dignified and sonorous
"Arioso" of Handel. In tho Verdi
aria which followed, tho artist show
ed great rango and depth of foeling
which appealed to tho audience. But
It remained for 'the first selection
in English, "Dream In the Twilight"
by Richard Strauss, to bring audi
enco and artist into close sympathy.
To tho great delight of the listen
ers, this selection was repeated.
This whole group of four songs, two
by Strauss and two by Schubert, I
has mot with spontaneous entnusi-
asm among the Honolulu reviewers
and truo it Is that they were sung
with exceptional feeling and sym
pathy. Offenbach's "Mirror Song"
technical and brilliant, was likewise
rniipileroil. ln ItH beautiful hnml tnncH I

Ono should then havo been nre-
. nnrml fnr thn lu iiilnnoo ami nnwnr
of tho urusual group of Russian songs
which rlnsoil thn nrnirrnni. nut It
seemed as If the human volco could
command no further resources. Yet
In a IliiHslnn ntmnmihnrn tho emit
volume of Bound and foeling seemed
cnmnlntalv nt homo. Tho Hnnnnil.
"Over tho Stnnnn" hv flrntrhnnl.
noif. soomed ucrfectlv suited to tho
slntrnr's resonance anil nnwor. The
final selection. "The Flea." bv' Mous-
sorgskl, was essentially dramatic
and afforded tho artist an unoxecel
led opportunity to display his un
usual ability as an actor rollicking
at first with a gay laugh, then grad
ually growing more and more sin
Ister nnd bitter, until tho final
laugh becamo a sncor.
It was truly a gorgeous program.
Its crowning glory, however, re
mains yet to bo mentioned. For
somo timo tho artist merely felt
about the soul of his audience
doubting n Ilttlo perhaps, whether
It worn a soul tn which ho pnnhl
speak. Gradually, tho appreciation
oi his listeners became unmistako
able, until a vory storm of applause
greoiou mo ond ot tho program.
Nor would it bo stilled before tho
accompanist announced the first en
core, the prologue from Pagliaccj.
Kvcry wish was fulfilled ln Its beau
tlful Interpretation, artistic In its
roprossed emotion, yet so gloriously
swelling forth at tho end, exhibiting
astounding flexibility of volco and
tone. Hugo applauso greeted this
selection wnicn perhaps during the
wnoio wonueriui evening was tho
favorite. Nothing daunted, tho ap-
plauso contlnuod. And when Mrs.
Schwarz, tho artist's wife, was
seen to beckon to hor husband to
return lor a second oncoro, dolight
knew no bounds. Tho audionco wa3
captured, fatatoly, tall, with. Iron gray
hair, mobile, expressive featuros,
and of majestic stago presence, tho
beloved artist, captivated In turn by
,uio spontaniety ot his listenors, ap-
peared yet again. Each scorned to
play up to tho other with increasing
delight. And the Joy was unfeigned.
' when, with lavish hand, tho singer
j iiung out nrsi ono operntlc seloction
and then another, Pagllacci, La Fa-
vorita, Hamlet. These princely gifts
Boomed too good to bo truo. Flow-
ers had boon rfhowored upon tho
singer uy girl ushers, a huge lol of
roses from tho Hul Aloha, and nn-
other loi and flowors hurried down
tho long alslo by young Qiii Resorv-
es who had charge of tho ushering.
And so at last thero was mutual
understanding and appreciation, A
great artist had sung himself into
tho lionrts of his hearers, oven as
Rachmaninoff had written for him:
"I am no prophet I spoak to hearts
with songs, and wako tho spark of
God in them."

The Kauai Fair Is
Shaping Up Fine
The success of tho Knuai Fair Is
r.ssurcd. Tho planters association of
this Island will enter an exhibit of
r.ugar cane which will eclipse any
attempt heretofore mndo ln this j
lino, and the Kauai Fruit & Land j
Co., Letd. will preparo an oxhiblt
of pineapples both of tho whole and
canned fruit, which will be most
ambitious to say the least. Demon
strations by these large concerns
will be educational in their naturo
ard may help those who arc largoly
interested in these two industries.
Tho poultry raisers of Kauai will
tlso present their wares for exhibi
tion, and as a great many people
ire interested in chickens, ducks
and turkeys, these ought to bo of
value to tho visitors. Somo valuable
tnimals will be exhibited.
A great deal is being said about
polar pies, and the name being now
to a number of Kauatans, questions
ire flying fast and furious as to
what they are. But really there is
rothlng mysterious in nre name. We
do not really know what they nrj
but are venturing a guess that the
Mokihana Club, who will Import
theso pies, will give us some frozen
sAvect which will bo most delicious.
Perhaps our guess is wrong, but
wo nre willing to lot Saturday, May
27th, decide the issuo.
Those who are directing tho fair
wish to thank those who are giving
unstintingly of their time in tho
preparation of tho great event. Tho
fact that It is going to bo a com
munity fair has secured tho co-operation
of tho various elements In
our midst.

Kilauea Planing
Big Entertainment
For July Fourth
Kllauea Is planning a blggor, bet
ter, moro exciting and more cos
mopolitan Fourth of July this year
than ever before. And thoy arc an-nouncl.-g
right here and now what
thoy arc going to do.
On tho second of July tho annu
al agricultural show and fair will bo
staged In tho community houso.
This fair was inaugurated two years
igo. The first year tho .show was
good. There was a much larger dis
play of Kllauea grown fruits and
vegetables than thn public- thought
could possibly be raised thero. But
the secor.d yc v; . bowed that tho
first year wa.i cnly a starter. That
agricultural fair compared favorably
with tho fruit and vegetnblo ox-
hiblt of the territorial fair. It would

was missing.
Whether the show this yenr will
,)uat hlat yu.lr.B performance or not
remains to be seon. But certainly
the backers ot tho institution aro
putting forth moie thought into tho
aflalr, they are making their an
nouncements earlier and tho rest-
lents of the district aro taking a
keener interest than over before.
On the -night of July 3 tho Kllau
ea Komedies, a Coil of Live Wire
Attarctlons from tho Universal Short
Circuit In Vaudeville do Lux,-follow-
d by n Komie Kostumo ,dnnco Is to
take place. This will be a typical
Kilauea entertainment Willi all its
jazz, surprises and jollity. So well
known nnd advertised are these en
tertainments becoming that it is
likely that tho hall will not be able
to hold the crowd. Anyone planning
to enjoy a real, llvewire tlmo that
night had better make his reserva
tions early.
On tho Fourth of July tho pro
gram will 1)0 continued down nt
Kihlll. There will be water sports
ot every variety, including Doc Pat
terson. Alupaki Smith and Scott
Pratt are to fight for honors as tho
daintiest dresed bathing beauty.
Swimming races', diving contests,
boat and canoe races all will do
tIlur ,mrt i making tho day sue
cessful. Fuller details of tho program
will bo announced nt a later date..
Keep these dates In mind.
PRECINCT CHANGES
