Kauai News Notes.
A letter from Kauai, under date of
April 2d, and received by the W. G.
Hall Sunday, contains the following
items of interest:
"An exceedingly pleasant, rprrntinn
was given to Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Lyd
gate on Friday evening at the Fait
View hotel, Li hue, by Mr. and Mrs. W.
IL Rice, Jr. The occasion was the re
turn of the bridal couple from the
Coast to settle in Lihue. The spacious
rooms of the hotel were tastefully .and
daintily decorated with a wsalth of
vines, flowers, ferns and fruit, and illu
minated with Chinese lanterns and
piano lamps, making a very effective
display.
.-liter rno lormai congratulations and
good wishes, the balance of the even
ing was spent in social intercourse,
music and the like. The refreshments
were served in the dining room where
the guests sat down comfortably at
tables profusely decorated, while a
string band played native airs on the
veranda.
ur. and Mrs. Rice Jr., proved
charming hosts and it was agreed on
all hands that it was, long since so
pleasant an evening was spent in
Lihue.
"Strong winds and heavy rains have
prevailed all over the Island for the
last 10 days.
Pro Bono Publico.
The Metropolitan Meat Company and
W. W. Dimond fc Company, Limited,
have constructed a good serviceable
stone crossing, connecting their busi
ness establishments en King street.
This is a convenience that will e ap
preciated by the public. Mr. Dimond
cay.s the line of the crossing just suits
his eye, for the reason that pedestrians
going and coming are bound to look
into the display windows. Dimond &
Company, Ltd., inaugurated their
promise strictly cash system of yester
day and by evening reported that the
novelty was a suprise to a good many
people, but that the plan met with ap
proval and promised to become verv
popular.
Semola for pan cakes, porridee, and
puddings is unexcelled.

C. CRADMER and J. NELLIS, who are

A letter to one of the Kauai Repre
sentatives in the House was received
Sunday. The following notes of inter
est are presented:
"The Road Board has written a let
ter to Mr. Rowell this week which asks
for an appropriation for a new bridge
in Hanappe and to let the former re
quest for $2,500 to repair the bridges,
stand as applied for, as all of that
amount is badly needed for the repair
of the Waimea bridge. The Road Board
also recommends that we ask for no
appropriation for the valley road, re
imbursement of $1,000 for Hie bi-eak-"
waters in Waimea river and the re
quest for water works for the town of
Lihue. Taking into consideration all
the expense the Government will now
have with the damage done in Hono
lulu and other places, we ask only the
total appropriation of $S,500 instead of
the old requests amounting to $14,000.
"Tnese requests are recommended by
the Road Board in an official letter of
March 30th, because we must have a
new bridge in Hanapepe and the Wai
mea bridge must be repaired or it will
go in the next good-sized freshet. That
would be a very bad thing because a
great deal of the timbers are in pretty
good order now, and repairs to the
amount cf $2,000 or $3,000 would place
it in good condition again. I therefore
think that you will please all your con
stitutents in the district by working
for getting only these two appripria
tions. as recommended by the Road
Board."

Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur
chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We
are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They
are three feet high and very thick. Your plow
turns them completely under, at the same time
plowing the land fourteen inches deep.
I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft
for the same quantity and depth of work is as
6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same
work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it
takes only 6, and they are less tired at night.
Please send me another plow by first schooner
leaving for this.
You are at liberty to use' this in any way you
may see fit. Yours truly,
A. LIDGATE.
