Tho Navy Department of the fed
eral government hns purchased five
acres of land on'' tho beach nt Ha
namaulu, on the Kapaa side of tho
stream from tho Llhue plantation.
The land will bo used as an auxil
iary baso for the navy air servlco
on inter-island flights. A run-way will
be put In so that flying boats may
bo hauled out of tho water on the
completion of a flight from 1 the
homo base. A small Repair shed may
also bo built.
Due to tho fact that thero has bono
no such facilities on Kauai, the
navy seaplanes have boon forcttl to
anchor in tho harbor and as the
boats have a tendency to get water
logged whon thoy remain In the wa
ter too long It has made taking off
rather difficult at tlmos.
No information has been given
out as to how soon tho navy in
tends to build tho runway or as to
how soon there will bo a resump
tion of inter-island flights. Due to
tho oconomy program of congress
and tho cutting of the army and navy
air service, appropriations so neither
branch has been able to continue

out that way and It seemed inad-

Return to Original Program
By this timo things had cleared
up In tho Wallua watershed and
thoy resolved to return to their or
iginal plan. Reaching tho falls they
found that thero had Indeed been a
big kewai rain in tho upper water
shed and that a roaring torrent of
foaming water was going over the
falls, tho llko of which Is seldom
seen. Thero had been no rain at all
makai, tho roads wero perfectly dry,
but far mauka there must havo been
a terrific downpour which had fill
ed evory valley and ravine, and tho
gathering flood had ovldently just
como down, a raging torrent sweep
ing everything before it.
On to the Upper Falls ,
Hurrying ou to the upper falls
which can be reached easily by
machine, thoy found to their sur
prise that thero was scarcely none
than the usual amount of rain had
been confined to tho south branch.
Should be Better Known
Tho upper falls aro much mora
beautiful than tho lower and should
bo much bettor known than they
are, tho more so that now they aro
easily accc-sslblo. It only takes 20
minutes or so from tho lower and '
tho road Is rot bad, though somo
what rough In places.
Returning leisurely to Waiehu
they wero ready for tho generous
supper consisting of hot coffee, hot I
rice, sandwiches, cake, etc which
they all enjoyed under tho over arch
ing mango trees by tho river side.

Tho story Is so generally known
that only a brief outline of tho plot
is necessary Tiero.
Nankl-Poo, tho Mikado's son, play
ed by R. W. Baylpss, is in lo'vo with
Yum-Yum, played by Mrs. K. C.
Ahana. But Yum-Yum Is betrothed
to her guardian, Ko-Ko, lord high
cxecutlonor. Poo-Bab, retailer of
state secrets at a low figure, tells
Nankl-Poo of his sweetheart's be
trothal to nnothor. but the young
man secures an intorview with Yum
Yum and confesses he Is tho Mika
do's son disguised as a minstrel in
tho hope of escaping punlahmcrt for
his refusal to marry Katlslia. Ko-Ko
receives a message from tho Mikado
telling him that he must see that
some one in -Titlpu is beheadcU with
In tne month or he will loso his
position, which interferes with the
lord high executioner's' matrimonial
arrangements. Nankl-Poo agrees to
sacrifice! hlmBolf If ho moy marry
Yum-Yum nnd havo her with him
during tho Intervening month. This
is agreed to and tho wedding plan

Yum-Yum Is preparing for tho wcxl
ding ceremony. While talking to
Nanki-Poo she is Interrupted by Ko
Ko, who tells her that according to
tho law, when a married man. Is ex
ecuted his wife is burned alive.
This cools tho ardor of Yum-Yum,
to save her promises that that day
he will perform the happy dispatch
of ahrlkarl. Ab this would bo dan
gerous to Ko-Ko ho promises in
alarm to swoar falsely to tho ce
cutlon of Nanki-Poo.
