TOT HAT people like to see really good, educational moving pic
I tures and are willing to pay even more than the 5 or 10 cent
price was shown by the exhibition of the coronation pictures
during two recent weeks. At every exhibition the house was well filedl
although the lowest price for a seat m the gallery was 25 cents, says
the San Francisco Chronicle.
The motion picture is a truly wonderful invention and it is a pity to
waste it on trivial and inferior subjects. It can be made to combine in
a wonderful degree entertainment and instruction, exhibiting the mar
vels of nature, the interesting sights of foreign lands, and even impart
ing a eood deal of scientific knowledge.- On the latter Thomas A. Edi
son has this to say in Harper's Weekly:
Take a pump. Did you ever learn out of your school book how a
pump pumped and why it is pumped? No; but as soon as you actually
saw a pump at work you understood right away. Well, in the moving
picture drama I'll have a fellow build a pump, make all the parts and
put them together. The section of tube facitig the camera will be made
of glass, so the children can see all that's inside of it. They'll see the
piston drive down, the little valve, the trap door, fly up as the plunger
is forced under water, close down again as the plunger is drawn up,
and the water raised up the tube. Steam engine the same way they'll
see the water boil and the steam go through the cylinders and drive the
Perhaps pump may seem a less interesting subject for moving pic
ture instruction than some other things that might be selected. Nature
study, for instance, could be made as full of action as anybody might
Mr. Edison suggests one example by describing how we might see,
in the pictures, a mau walking in the woods carrying a tomato can,
which he fills with water from a pond. With no break he returns to
his laboratorv and pours the water into a tank and forthwith, by the
aid of the microscope, we see a hideous helgramite down at the bottom,
and all the water above him full, of little creatures devouring one an
other. Up at the top is a water beetle he looks like a dragon before
the microscope. Down he plunges, and stabs the helgramite in the neck;
the latter fights back, but finally the beetle wins and gobbles his prey
Action? There certainly is plenty in that. And the scene would be
educative also. Our learniner about thimrs is too much made up of
reading about them instead of looking at them. Some day, no doubt,
our schools will make use of motion pictures to supplement and illus
trate the text-books. In the meantime the motion picture theaters are
losing an opportunity in not combining more instruction with their en-
As good a bit of economic philosophy as I heard while in the Hawai
ian Islands cam from the lips of a curious character who keeps a little
stoooine place in the Island of Maui. When he took our bags at the
wharf, my companion asked him how the town was prospering
"Oh," said he, "we're all right so long as the Japs keep on working'."

Watch Meeting Episode.
(By Willis Hawkins)
FOR seven mortal years on end
Sim Lucas courted Mary Burr
Till folks began to apprehend
He wouldn't never capture her.
Yit Sim he stuck an' hung to it
An' swore by jing, he'd never quit
Till she give in an' named 'the day
When she'd love, honor an' obey.
He'd dog her ev'rywhere she'd go.
No other feller got a chance '
To take her out to any show
Or party, festival or dance.
An' alius of a Sunday night
We'd see the same familiar sight
Of Sim a-waitin' by the door
To take her home f'm church once more.
The women all took sides with Sim,
An' some talked plain to Mary Burr,
A-sayin' they regarded him
As jes' the fitting man fer her.
But Mary wouldn't bugde a peg,
She jes' sot back and let him beg
Till somep'n happened Noo Year's eve
That all us men could hardly b'lieve.
Watch meetin' had begun a-while
When with a sort o' gallus stride
Sim come a-marching down the aisle
With Sallie Goodwin at bis side.
An' when, as if not seein' her
They sot in front of Mary Burr
AU around the church the women folks
Grinned like it was the best of jokes.
Nex' mornin' Mary chanced to meet
With Sim (I guess she made the chance),
An' there, right out upon the street,
She ast him to the leap year dance.
Then Sim walked with her to her gate,
An' on her way she sealed her fate.
That's how one wedding come about
Through watchin' of the old year out.
Long Lived Here on Maui and Raised
While the name and fame of Dr.
Sun Yat Sen have sped around the
world since the commencement of
the revolution in China, little
thought lias lieen given to the fem
inine sideof the. new order of things
in' that vast nation. The world is
hardly prepared to grasp the fnct

Hawaiian Islands, and in the little
Kula home she dwelt with Doctor
Sun's mother, while her husband
wandered the world, teaching the
propaganda of republicanism for the
400,000,000 of Chinese. In the past
twelve years Doctor Sun was seldom
at home. Occasionally he slipped
into Honolulu from abroad, mys
teriously, and came to Maui to visit
his aged mother and his wife and
their small ones, and then as mys
teriously he slipped away again, to
continue his self-imposed task of
creating sympathy for the "new
Loo See's life has not been cast
in smooth places for she has had a
horror for many years that some
day the information would be
brought to her that her husband

headed, for a price of $350,000 had
long ago lieen platted upon his head
by the imperial government.
Three years ago Loo See and "her
family went to Honolulu from Maui
with Doctor Sun's mother. While
in Horolulu they were the guests of
Mr. and Mrs Chan Kim, in a lane
off Vineyard street, on the Ewa side
of Nuuanu stream.
Loo See spoke English well, al
most as well as her husband. She,
too, had faith in the success of the
doctor's plans. She said then that
the doctor had sent for his family to
go to the Orient, and she at once
made ready for the journey.
Dr. Sun's mother died in Kow-
loon about two years ago, but Mrs
Sun is now in Penang, in the Straits
Settlements, with all the family,
save for the eldest son, Sun Fo, who
is now in Honolulu-
Doctor Sun is a Chri.-tiaii, for he
was educated in Iolnui College, the
old Anglican school in Honolulu,
and was baptized by Frank Damon,
wh'o is also responsible for the liigl
ideals of American civil government
which Doctor Sun early took as his
standard for the government he
hoped one day to establish in China.
The Puunene club again came to
the front Monday with an inter-club
tennis tournament. The play'ng
started at 10 o'clock in the morning
and continued until late in the after
noon, with an intermission at the
noon hour, when refreshments were
served.The best teams from the Paia,
Kahului and Puunene clubs partici
pated in the tounament, and some
excellent tennis was the result. The
Puunene club won with a score of
68 points, Paia 57, and Kahului 30.
The committee in charge deserve
great credit for the manner in which
the arrangements were made, and
especially is this true in the serving
of the refreshments. The big crowd
were all seated in the big hall at the
club house, and many were the ex
pressions of satisfaction at the splen
After the regular tournament had
been finished a number of special
matches were played between the
different teams. 1 Perhaps the one
which created the most interest was
between F. F. Baldwin and C. E.
Meyers against W Walsh and J. B.
Thompson. Walsh and Thompson
started the first set with a rush and
had their opponents on the run till
it looked like an easy wis- Meyers

all pretty well tired out.

A match game was played on the
Puunene Ixiwling alleys, after the
tennis matches on Monday, between
a team from Wailuku and one' from
Puunene. The Wailuku team hail
little difficulty in winning the match,
and they rolled a steady, consistent
game throughout. Meyers of Wai
luku rolled the high score of the
day with a siring of 215 in the
second game. The Wailuku team
was made up of the following play
ers: C. E. Meyers, W Chilling

the house of a noble lord. The lan
guor of his listeners made him feel
not too happy, and ho was glad to get
through and retire to the dressing
room allotted him. While he was re
moving the grease paint a very young
peer who had strolled after him stood
watching the process. He told the
comsdlan in the most approved drawl
that some of his sayings had really
been rather funny, "especially that

An absentminded professor who

a great feat of engineering that
aroused his enthusiasm. Suddenly he
sprang from his chair and advanced
toward his wife. His manner betrayed

"and I do not want you to oppose me.
Do you hear?"
"Yes, dear. What Is It. their?"
"Now, no opposition, mind! I wish
the boy to be an engineer."
"But, my dear, what are you talking
about? We haven't any boy."
- "Oh, yes, that Is so. I had forgotten
that," said the professor as he re

Champ Clark' Church Experience In
Hia Early Days.
Champ Clark became a member of
the Cauipbelllte church very early in
life, and thereby huns a tale.
While still a young ninn he went to
the town of Louisiana, Mo., to estab
lish himself. The town wns a lusty,
bustling, typicnl Mississippi river
town of tho BteamlKiut era, and there
was a good deal of life there, kvhich
Mr. Clark became a factor. Evening
parties to take moonlight trips up and
down the river were very much in
vogue, and one evening the young law
yer wont up the river on one of these
parties, which had chartered a barge
called the Mamie, in tow of the river
stenuior War Eagle. There was danc
ing all the way up the river and back,
and Mr. Clark, in the youthful exuber
ance of his spirits, was one of the gay
When tho next Sunday rolled around
and young Clark, unconscious of the
coming storm, went as. usual to the
Canipellite church, where a few weeks
previous he had put in his letter from
the church he had belouged to back
east, bis ease was called up, and after
a swift but formal trial before serv
ices at the bar of the church he was
lgnominiously expelled from member
ship for dancing. Chagrined, humil
iated and crestfallen, young Clark
wandered forth in a despondent mood.
but after walking around for a time
he resolutely returned to the church,
slipped in and took a seat on the last
bench in the rear, observed by none.
There he sat and heard a sermon on
backsliding that seemed to be directed
at him alone. ,
As was the custom in the Campbel
lite church, an Invitation was extend
ed by the pastor at the end of the ser
mon for repentant sinners to come
forward and kneel at the chancel.
When this invitation was extended
Champ Clark solemnly arose, marched
forward to the mourners' bench and.
to the astonishment of the congrega
tion, took his place with the penitents.
The pastor was nonplussed; tho pre
siding elder gasped; the deacons were
stunned with astonishment, and all
were temporarily at their wits' end to
know what to do with the repentant
brother who only tlint morning had
been expelled from the congregation.
The book containing the rules and
laws of the church was hastily dug up
and consulted. All the officials put
their beads together, but there was
only one thing to do a repentant sin
ner could not be turned away, so
Clark went back into the fold and
there abldeth to this day.

"Why, Mary?" asked her father.
"Well," said Mary, "wouldn't you be

coming along without a man in them?"

A man doesn't have to be a mechanic to recognize the simplicity of the WHITE motor. If
he is at ail familiar with 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 foui cylinder are east en bloc -thai 1m Id one piece. This construction gives a rigidity to the crank case and
keep the bearings in alignment a
The cylinders each have a three and three-fourth Inch bore and Bve and one-eighth inch stroke. The stroke U very long in pro
portion to the bore, resulting In increased power with less effort, which means maximum efficiency and gasoline economy.
There are four forward speeds, with direct drive on tho 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 radiator in which the ooollng surface Is practically twice that of any ordinary
kind. This radiator Is the most efficient of which we know, and, beouu.se of its high cost, Is used only In the better grade of cars.
A double oiling system is used. After lubricating, the connecting rod bearings, the oil drops Into the crunk case, where It is
used lathe regular splash system. Besides being a very effective means of lubrication, the conomyof using the oil twice is
4 pparent. The crunk shaft casing and the side plates on the motor, which when removed make the crank shaft accessible, con
floes the oil to the Inside of the motor, preventing a general besmearing with oil which would otherwise occur.
