The New Year.
HKRK'S to Happiness may your roses have no thorns,
and he fragrant with the perfume of hearts' desires.
The season of good intentions, good resolutions, is upon us. "Many
people fancy they can cast the past behind them on New Year's day,,
simply by resolving to apply the golden rule to their everyday con
duct. This is a noble ambition, but how many people stop to think
that reformation and building of character cannot take place in an hour
or a day. The laws of nature aren't suspended on New Year's day.
You can't gild your failures with a lot of shining resolutions. They
won't stay put the past is in the way Conscience has kept tab on us,
and knows of our every meanness and deceit, and unless we build our
structure of good intentions on something more substantial than New
Year's day resolutions, we are building upon the sand, and our founda
tions are out of line.
Merely being good will do neither you nor the world any good.
Only energized good is effective, and the dynamic force and quality
that vitalizes virture is kindliness. "Be good but be you bad or
good, do good." Kindliness is goodness, made positive. Through
kindliness are the dark places of the world lit with a warm and friend
ly light, the bitterness of life made sweet.
A Fulfilled Prophecy.
IT is not always possible for a newspaper to accurately prophecy
future events. The News did prophecy a few weeks ago, however,
that the new Maui Library would be a success. The interest in the
project from all parts of our Yalley Isle prove how foresighted we were.
We are glad we were right, and we are pleased that everybody is taking
a personal interest in the new enterprise.
It is understood that the Organization Committee for the new Libra
ry had a very successful meeting, and that certain features for the new
enterprise have developed, which will make the Library' of the greatest
possible advantage to all of the people of the Island. '
The Committee propose to recommend, it is" understood, that the
dues be such that all who have heretofore had the advantages of the
Book Club membership in various parts of Maui can now enjoy the far
greater privileges the Library will offer at practically the same rates a
year. In other words it is very probable the circles will be continued as
before, and the added advantage given that all who desire may draw
books directly from the Library in addition to the circle books.
Many people have offered from their own libraries books that are
practically new, to help increase the books immediately available.
Many too have offered magazines and valuable reference books.
We would urges all who intend to make such donations to send them
in to the Librarian as soon as possible, so that the work of assorting the
books preparatory to cataloguing may be begun immediately.
The Bethlehem Stur.
(Ily Aloysius Coll.)
THE Bethlehem star, the guiding star
Of old Judea's night
Has it become a faded scar
Across the orient night,
The guess of science and the guess
Of critic, seer -and sage?
Has it the dimmer grown or less
For change of clime and age?
Star of the east it is not set.
Though science, scout the sky,
Tis burning in the heaven yet
As bright and sure and high
As when the shepherds saw it flame
Over old Bethlehem
Aud followed it until it came
And showed a Christ to them.
It is not set, the Bethlehem star, '
But hovers full and clear
Where'er the babe and cradle are
And parents watching near,
Where'er the argel lips of love
Bring tidings of great joy,
Where'er a mother bends above
Her darling firstborn .boy.
The Bethlehem star each mother sees
Its holy promise light,
Believing each its destinies
Her darling's in the night,
Believing each the little star
Is set above her son
To light her mother hopes that are
And shine when hers are done.
Mary in Bethlehem outcast
Is Mother Mary still
And lives the Mary of the past
On Scotland's heathered hill; ,
Are Mary's of the time of God
And Egypt, Rome and Spain,
Are Mary's of the time of God
And watch the star again.
The Bethlehem star, the guiding star
That hovers full and clear
Wherever babe and cradle are
And parents watching near,
Wherever cherub lips of love
Bring tidings of great joy,
Where'er a mother bends alove
Her darling firstborn boy.
So important an invention as the
telephone was made by turning a
screw cne-fourth of one revolution.
All the millions that have resulted
from the invention of the Bell tele
phone depended Upon this flight
twist of the wrist of Dr. Alexander
Graham Bell. There had been
men before Dr. Bell who had come
near finding a way to make female
gossip ami masculine commercial
intercourse easier. The Reis pat
ents came nearest success. But in
the Reis patents the current was intermittent.
It bad to leap a gup. Dr. Bell
closed that gap when he turned the
screw. But Dr. Bell was not try
ing to invent a telephone when he
incidentally, stumbled upon his
secret. He was working" m a
method of making speech visible,
for his wife was deaf and dumb and
he was seeking an easy method of
conversing with her. instead, he
found the method of talking over a
wire to people nt a distance. He
did not patent the idea, however,
and it knocked about his house for
Finally he demonstrated it to
some friends, and they saw the
possibility of its application. Upon
their advice he patented the inven
tion. His patent was filed at 10
o'clock in the morning, and at 3
o'clock in the afternoon another
man applied for a patent on the
same thing and lost a hundred mil
lion dollars by a nose.
Thaddeus Fairbanks was a New
England farmer with long whiskers
and much Yankee ingenuity. In
his time old-fashioned steelyards
were the only accurate means of
weighing the produce of the farm.
Platform scales were unknown, for
nobody had ever worked out a
method of arranging the levers that
supported the platform in such a
way that an object could pull
equally, no matter upon what part
of the platform it rested.
Old Thaddeus Fairbanks used to
tell the story of the evolution of the
arrangement of these levers. For a
long time the problem was on his
mind. He used to lie awake nights
and attempt to arrange these levers.
It was in the dead of night that his
thinking finally bore fruit. The
arrangement unfolded itself, and
the Fairbanks, scale was the result.
So did a farmer practically mono
polize the scale business of the world
and so did he write his name upon
platform scales wherever civilized
man buys and sells by weight.

EDWARD HATCH, JR., LEADER OF THE ANTI-FLY CRUSADE.
NOW that everybody has been taught to "swat the fix" it Is easy
to forget that there was a time when the public had to be edu
cated to a knowledge of Its deadly actlrltles. It Is only a little
more than two years ago, however, that Edward Hatch, Jr., of
New Jork began the anti-fly crusade which led to the formation of the
fly fighting committee of the American Civic association, of which com
mittee be Is now chairman. Last summer this committee distributed
many thousands of "kill files and save lives" tracts, enlisting the co-operation
of health officers, teachers, physicians and newspapers through
out the country. Mr. Hatch gave cash prises to school children who
wrote essays on the fly, many newspapers conducted fly killing con
tests, the boy scouts were organized Into cleaning up and fly swatting
squads, anti-fly postcards were Issued, and the moving picture houses
presented ' before hundreds of thousands of spectators the "fly pest"
CIms made and imported through the Instrumentality of Mr. Hatch.

THE WHITE '.'SIX'
A man doesn't have to be a mechanic to recognize the simplicity of the WHITE motor. If
he is at all familiar w' th the appearance of motors he will be likely to think, looking at a
WHITE, that some parts are missing. It is all there, however, and whatever parts have been
eliminated result in its efficiency,' simplicity and economy of operation. To the average man
the WHITE motor is the most attractive part of the car; because its probability to need repairs is
minimized, and, if it does need adjusting its construction is not so bewildering that he cannot
make minor repairs himself, however little he may know of mechanics.
. Five Important Features of White Motors
First of all, the tout cylinders are oast en bloo -that la In one piece. This construction Klv'es a rlslditv to the crank case and
keeps the bearings In alignment.
Tbecylinders each have u three and throe-fourth iDoh bore and Ave and one-eighth Inch stroke. The stroke Is very long In pro.
portion to the bore, resulting in increased power with less effort, which moans maximum efficiency and gasoline economy.
There are four forward speeds, with direct djtveontbc third, which means a speed for every condition, giving greater road
efficiency, and making It unnecessary to overtax the engine at any time.
WHITE motors are equipped with a honeycomb radlutor In which the cooling surfaoe Is practically twice that of any ordinary
kind. This radiator is the most elllciont of which we know, and, because of Its high cost, is used only In the better grade of cars.
A double oiling system Is used. After lubrlcmtuf.', the connecting rod bearings, the oil drops into the cranio case, where It 18
used In the regular splash system. Unsides beluga very effective means of lubrication, the conomy of using the oil twice la
pparent. The crank shaft casing and the side plates on the motor, which when removed make the crank sbalt accessible, con
fines the oil to the Inside of the motor, preventing a general besmearing wlthoil which would otherwise occur. '
