This coming Sunday, May 18th, is the day to remember Mothers; the symbol of that day is the White Carnation [Poni Moi] placed on the suit of men, and on the fronts of women and children. It shows you remember your mother who took care of you from when you were a baby until you were an old man or woman. Whether she has died or she is still living.

Emalia Kaihumua was attacked by her husband yesterday, the woman’s jaw being broken by a blow from a demijohn. She was taken to the police station for treatment and an investigation disclosed the fact that she was in all likelihood a leper, so she was ordered to the detention station at Kalihi.

BEAT HIS WIFE AND THE WIFE WAS AFFLICTED BY THE SEPARATING DISEASE.
This past Sunday, January 28th, the husband of Emalia Kaihumua beat her and her jaw was dislocated, because she was struck with a wine bottle. That woman was taken to Kuapapanui, and tended to.
Later, Dr. McDonald of the Board of Health came and examined the injury, and after his examination of some of the flesh of that woman, he gave orders to have the injured woman to the Quarantine Station in Kalihi.
From this it is understood that Emalia is suspected of having leprosy, and that is possibly why she was taken to the quarantine area of the sick.
