The soul of the song went into
their blood and the Bach family
made tnuaic from generation to
generation. So, . too, music sings
and springs and flowers and booms
from generation unto generation in
the songa of the German and Italian
nations. It would be no mistake
to say that nearly all Germans have
PRINTING FOR TWO CENTURIES.
f Nobody would call printing na
tural, like music, yet the longest
record in history of highly artificial
powers staying in one family is in
a family of French printers named
Stephens. The Stephenses furnish
ed a continouf succession of famous
printers for two centuries and then
broke out occasionally in spots some
more. At least twelve members of
this family of printers were at the
head of typographical science dur
ing the sixteenth and seventeenth
LORDSHIP DROPPED FOR PRINTING.
The Stephenses are generally dis
tinguished in royal fashion : Henry
the First, Antone the third, or Fifth,
etc. Henry the First, of nobie birth,
alienated himself from his family
and dropped his title for love of the
new art of printing. Neither he nor
his descendants ever sought to drop
printing to lord it. In 1646 Henry
the last closed out this uninterrupt
ed succession of printer princes; but
ao late as 1826 three hundred and
fifty years after the first Stephens
printers a lineal descendant of the
tame name was director of the
presses for the famous Didots in
FORTY-FIVE EDITIONS OF THE BIBLE.
The Stephens family in stormy
times got out forty-five editions of
the Bible in various languages
When eugenists talk of music in the
blood they should remember that
printing can get into the blood, too.
FACTORY TOWN BIRTH RATE.
In fictory towns where married
women work it is common talk that
the birth rate of girl babies is larger
than it ought to be or than it is in
other towns in general. Of course
if there is any ground for the belief
it is a question for science to investi
gate, for it is sure to affect the gen
erations to come. Scientific investi
gations seems to show that the em
ployment of married women in
factories tends to cut down the birth
rata as well as to brjng too small a
proportion of boy babies.
The proprietor of a furniture shop
in 125th street completed a model
of an old Gothic table, elaborately
carved. This was put in the win
dow with an appropriate inscription.
Soon a woman entered.
"That's a nice table you have in
the window,'' she said, "I think I'd
like to buy one."
He mentioned the price. She was
quite dumb for a minute. Then she
'You've got a card on it which
says advertised at (14.61. '
TUe owner took a look at the dis
play and found that the window
lresser had labeled it: "Pure
Gothic, A. D. 1461."
BEAN SOUP MILK.
The new synthetic milk reported
from Germany seems to be a sort of
modified bean soup. The basis of it
is said to be a preparation of the soy
bean, much used in Japan, China
and other Oriental countries in the
form of a so-called "milk," a cheese
and a flour. Both soy milk and
soy cheese are mentioned in some
text books on foods as having great
nutritive value. The soy bean,
while unusually rich, is proteid
material; that is, in a meat-like
substance, contains only a small
amount of starch. For this reason
a flour made from it has been used
to iome extent in preparing bread
for persons afflicted with diabetes.

Business among the retailers seems
not so good as it was a year ago and
the political situation gets the blame
for it. J. P. Cooke is quoted in a
daily paper as being very optimistic,
but whether his opinion is going to
ease those who are expected to buy
for Christmas is a question.
On Thursday Oahu College and
High School play their final cham
pionshipgame of football, and in the
evening the classes are going to blow
off a lot Intent energy at one of the
local theaters. Oahu has been very
successful on the grklrion this year
and they expect to take the chain
pionship down to the theater and
yell themselves hoarse.
roor Duke Kahanamoku is not
appreciated here in spite of the fact
that he did more to promote Hawaii,
all over the world, than all of the
literature ever gotten out by the
Promotion Committee, for he come
back broke and the house and lot
which he was to get is not his, for
the reason that the patriotism of the
people died with their enthusiasm
in so far as Duke is concerned, and
now he is going to the coast on the
invitation of the Oljmpic Club of
San Francisco. I am told he has
tried in many ways to secure a sit
uation that would bring him in
enough money to support him but
has failed. Unfortunately he is not
educated, and there are only a few
lines he could fill but he does not
have a chance at those few. He was
offered sixty dollars for a week's
posing at the Liberty but his guard
ian friend Willie Rawlins would not
consent because it would savor of
professionalism. I believe it is pos
sible that when he gets over to the
coast he will have such inducements
offered him to enter vaudeville that
he will be lost to Hawaii. If not that,
the coast people may take sufficient
interest in him to get him work that
will be agreeable and when you hear
of the coast team swimming during
the 1915 Fair, Duke's name may be
among those entered from the Bay
City. This could not follow Duke's
entry into the professional cluss
through his going into vaudeville.
But the boy has found out that a
swimming champion in Hawaii does
not amount to much. Here is the
polo team going to the coast and in
one day Judge Wilder gathered in
three thousand dollars to help pay
expenses because it had some promo
tion value. So it has but it is all
speculative. Dukes value as a promo
tion asset is a reality, an unappreci
ated one for the boy gets nothing
but tne small bits doled out by
tourists for his service as a steers
man in the canoes at the beach.
Duke came back to the United
States after he had been crowned
victor by a king. He landed in New
York penniless and remained in
that condition until his friends in
the Hui Nalu sent him the money
to pay his way homo. And it was
those same beach boys who put up
most of the money for his expense.
As I remember it, the first money
to come as a donation to a fund for
his benefit after he returned was
from a patriotic citizen of Wailuku.

on'the pertection of the imitation
perfection not alone in appearance
and flavor, but in nutritional value
as well. The supreme test of the
latter would be its adequacy, when
property modified, as a diet for
babies. That it could safety pass
the latter test seems doubtful, and
until it has done so the label milk
is obviously a misnomer'
