Famous are Ikua and Kaʻaua
Both mischievous with the lariat
Both experts in Europe
Waimea full of gusto
The hard rain named Kipuʻupuʻu
To the stadium of Wyoming

Both are delegates to the world championship
Both mischievous with the lariat
No expert to excel you
Waimea full of gusto
The hard rain named Kīpuʻupuʻu
To the cold of California

A telegraph brought us the word
Of your mischievous lariats
Ikua is the champion of the world
Waimea full of gusto
The hard rain named Kīpuʻupuʻu
And the three mountains
Your people are full of happiness
Of your mischievous lariats
Famous is the Kipu`upu`u rain
Waimea full of gusto
The three mountains
The stadium of Wyoming
 
Tell the refrain
Of your mischievous lariats
The sound of the lariats
Waimea full of gusto
The three mountians
Waimea full of life

They signed up to compete and returned the next year, 1908, with approximately 5 or 6 paniolo. They were well received and the Hersig Ranch loaned some of their best horses to our paniolo to use in the competition. Rancher Hersig was a good friend of Eben Low. Eben Low competed with only one hand, his right hand had been yanked off years before while roping cattle in Hawaiʻi. Jack Low, Eben's brother, had an asthma attack but competed anyway placing 6th in the competition. Ikua Purdy's average roping time was 56 seconds, and won him 1st place, stunning the rest of the competing cowboys. Archie Kaaua came in 3rd.
