Social Circles Bright and Buzzing in Spite of Bad Weather.

Mrs. J. C. Lorenzen and niece, Miss Etta Daniels of Honolulu, are visiting their friends, Mr. and Mrs. H. Z. Austin, at “Ocean View,” Kapaa, where we had the pleasure of meeting the Bishop of Panopolis and accompanying priests—Father Marratian and Father Levi.

These have been some cold mornings and chilly evenings, perhaps because of the Ekepue wind; the “prickling pins of cold” are creeping along. Some people however are feeling perfectly comfortable while others are huddled up.
