Few people give enough thought to the earning
capacity of a dollar. When you look at a dollar, do
not think of how much it will buy, but
HOW MUCH IT WILL EARN.
When you find yourself -thinking of your dollars
in this way, you are starting on the only straight
and sure road to wealth. Idle dollars arc of no more
uso to tho world than idlo men. Every dollar you
make over the cost of actual necessities, should be
immediately placed under tho safeguard of a strong
bank and kept busily at work earning other dollars
for you. Wo pay four per cent interest on savings
accounts and figure the interest every six months.

SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directly from maker to user only through the Company's own em
ployees. There is as great a difference in the cost of making sewing
machines ns there'is in making watches. A cheap watch will indicate
tilde witli fair accuracy for a short time, l'airly good stitching can be
done on some of tlie old patterns of cheap sewing machines when they
are new, but they always work hard, nre noisy and soon wear out.
Every SINGER MACHINE is tested by actual sewing at the factory.
It is always ready for every kind of stitching and will do better work
and do it longer than any other because it is of better design and
construction. A 1'os.tol Card to

MCGREGOR'S AND MAALAEA
During -Wednesday night very
high seas swept over the new wharf
at McGregor's Landing tearing off
the planking and guard rails but
doing no other serious damage.
Tho wharf at Maalaca Bay suf
fered still moro and is now in a
very dilapidated condition. Many
piers are broken land part of the
wharf hangs down into the water,
McGregor's Landing was com
pleted by Cotton Bros, last April,
but has not been used as a landing
for want of an approach from the
wharf to the main road, which is at
present being worked upon. The fact
that tho contractors built tlfo land
ing solidly is proven by the tearing
away of only tho planking and
ino wnan at jUaalaea liav was
already in a very bad condition,
and now is probably not fit for
use., Last week for want of pro
per lights an accident occurred at
this landing causing an unfortu
unto aged Portuguese woman to lose
her foot by amputation.
It is to be hoped that the autho
rities will immediately remedy the
recent damage to avert any moro
serious accidents in tho future.
