Ke Aloha Aina’s Happy
New Year Gift.
We are putting forth our New Year’s Gift to you all, our kind readers, just as we do every year.
The picture that is printed along with the Calendar of this year, is a picture of the Typesetters of this Office, who stand at the left of the picture, as well as some of the boys who sell the paper every Saturday. This picture was taken in a rush, without the boys knowing in advance that it was a picture taking day this past Saturday, Dec. 30, 1905.
Just like a flash of lightning, so was the quick idea of the Owner and captain of KE ALOHA AINA to make this picture of the paperboys, showing their great enthusiasm, into a picture Calendar for this year, 1906. This is not all of the paperboys of KE ALOHA AINA; there are many who were not photographed.

If you were wondering about this awesome picture, it seems that it was an afterthought by the head of the paper [Edward L. Like] to give it as a gift to the subscribers of the newspaper “Ke Aloha Aina,” in 1906.
