b:trI niiil James C. Sims, of San
Francisco. The two visitors are
well known Imsiness men on tlie
Coast,--ami they are irineipally in
thc'islauds in order to lioosl for the
iiC exposition of 1015.
Mr. lluliliard, wlio is a convin
ing speaker, spoke of tlie work he-
nig done in regard to tlie !ig Fair.
He gave many interesting details,
and supplied some figures regarding
tlie preparations for the exposition.
"Over 625 acres of land will be
covered by the buildings and
grounds of the exposition," said
Mr. Hubbard, "and there will be a
frontage of lYi miles to the Golden
Gate. The site is unique, and the
fact that the warships of every na
tion in the world will pass in review
before the people will add to the
"Two million cubic yards of
earth have been excavated. The
sewefs have been installed and, it
is certain that eight months before
the opening day, all will be ready
for the exhibits. Xo other exposi
tion has ever had everything ready
before the opening day. Applica
tions for far more space than can
possibly be allowed have been
turned in. Only products that
have been manufactured, or inven
tions that have been made since
1905, will be allowed in the exposi
tion. That will insure that no out-of-date
things will be seen at the
"Twenty-one foreign countries
and thirty-eight states and territor
ies have, so far, announced that
they will be exhibitors. Over 850,
000,000 will be spent.
"Tlie Hamburg-American Steam
ship Company will send steamers
direct from Europe, and already
their passenger accommodation is
booked to the limit. The steamers
will come through the Panama
Canal. There is the opportunity
for Hawaii to attract thousands of
tourists. Hawaii should lie well
represented at the Fair, and the

for in your legislature, should be

JOHN SMITH Well, if all the
meetings of the Maui Chamber of
Commerce could be like the latest
one, there would, be some fun.
However, the star disturber has re
signed, so I suppose there will be
nothing much doing in future.
"POP" HENNING Yes, I'm a

apples in future.
W. F. POGUE T he county
should get the power to tax itself
for its own improvements. No
more money should be borrowed,
as the interest and sinking fund is
becoming a big burden. Hard
times are, perhaps, coining, and
everybody should go slowly in the
matter of borrowing.
DR. RAYMOND Getting cold
feet, eh? Hard times coming! I'll
resign right now. Pogue asks for
1,000,000 gallons of water from the
ne-7 reservoir if constructed at
2J2 cents per thousand gallons.
Hfro is his letter to that effect.
LOUIS SOARES The ball games
will start soon. There will be
some good sport this year.
W. F. POGUE I asked for the
water Dr. Raymond mentions, but
it was for any surplus there might
be, over and above what is needed
for the system.

persuade a prospective purchaser of
a second hand automobile that he
is getting a motor car as good as
new is to dissect the machine before
the eyes of the public so that every
minute item in its construction can
be seen. Recently the company
mentioned followed this plan in
connection with the sale of a Cadil
lac and these heroic measures were
not onty effective, but somewhat
sensational in their success.
A client had purchased a used
U)0!) Cadillac from this firm in 1911
and in 1013 it was again offered
for sale. A would-be purchaser
was about to close the deal when a
friend rrised the point that, being
four years old, the machine was
worn out. The prospective pur
chaser put the matter up to the
Cadillac dealer from whom it was
"'Jmnally purchased and who had
told the buyer that it ought to be
good for 20 years. The company
was not in the least abashed by the
problem. They declared that they
would ignore the four years of use
and still say it was good for twenty
To prove their faith in the car
they made a newspaper announce
ment which included all the corres
pondence in the case, and declared
that the car would be publicly dis
mantled to the last bolt and nut.
Thus anyone who desired could see
whether or not the working parts
were as good as new, were of high-
grade steel and gauged to perfect
accuracy. The public was invited
to the dissection party and the func
tion was a huge success. It was
found that at a total expense of 16
this four-year-old car could be put
in condition piratically as good as
new. The result was that not only
was the contention of the company
proved, but that several very high
indorsements were received from en
gineers and other experts, who
were greatly impressed by the de
sc sjc sc )fc
Although the Cadillac was the
first motor car to be equipped with
an automatic electric cranking de
vice, the remark has frequently
been made that it was the car which
least needed such a device foi the
reason that it so frequently started
by the spark. Reports received by
the Cadillac Company indicate that
it is not an uncommon occurrence
for a Cadillac owner to run his car
for several weeks without starting
his engine by any means other than
"by the spark."
Numerous instances have been
recorded of cars starting by the
spark after being in transit for
several weeks, the perfect fit of the
pistons and piston rings in the
cylinders holding the charge of gas.
Tlie most recent report was that
made by the Begg Motor Co., Cadil
lac dealers in Vancouver, 1. C.
The car left the factory on Decern
ber 21, after having its gasoline
tank drained. It was held up by
the storms in the mountains arriv
ing in Vancouver January 27, being
in transit five weeks.
When the car was unloaded, the
ignition switch was closed and the
engine started without being crank,
ed, the charge of gas having been
retained in the cylinder from the
time the car left the factory.

The Woman Who's Determined to
Please Too Much.
A Special Privilege.
There enme a time lu a certain cam
paign when the uinniijiers on one side
needed $20,000 and turned to a cor
poration source of supply.
The need was explained by a banker
who was Interested In politics. The
money man. of the corporation listened
and snld: "Well, I'll give you $120,000,
but I don't wnut to make a check for
It or a draft. Just set aside $20,0o0 In
your bank and I'll get the currency in
a few days and hand it In."
That was satisfactory. In about
eleven days the money man of the cor
poration walked into the bunk with the
$30,000 in cash, turned it In and start
"Hold on!" snid the banker. "There's
a little matter of $08 Interest"
"What's thut?" roared the corpora
There's $08 interest due on that."
The corporation man put his hand to
his forehead and gasped: "Great Cae
sar, this Is the limit! Here you get a
contribution of $20,000 from us and
then want us to pay $(JS for the privi
lege of contributing It" Saturday
Chafing Dish Set In Crash Toweling Is
Jutt the Gift For Hostess Who Is
Fond of Entertaining Informally at
Supper or Luncheon.
Dear Elsa I have Just come back to
New York from a week end spent with
Margaret W and I never leave her
charming country homo without the
uncomfortable feeling that I have been
extremely rude. Margaret is one of the
few remaining specimens of politeness
left to us in this rude, busy age. In
deed, she Is so anxious to be nice and
to have her guests enjoy themselves
that she defeats her own good object
by being too solicitous of their well be
ing. In other words, she Is one of those
"pressing" people who make the aver
age woman feel like "saying things"
Here Is an example of what I mean:
"Won't you have one of these cakes,
dear?" she cried one afternoon at tea,
her bright eyes falling on my empty
"Thank you very much, but I ve
"Oh, but you must try one of these.
"I'm sure they are delicious, but
"Just one, now; Just to please me."
So I was obliged to meekly dispose
of the cake, and as soon as I had come
to tho last crumb Margaret began
"Now I'm sure you will have another,
"No, thank you, really, Margaret."
"Oh, do; I have not nearly finished
yet Do keep me company. Or per
haps you did not like my cake?",
"It was splendid!" I managed to re
ply, quite honestly, for Margaret is a
fine cook. "But, truly"
Well, it was till oft. Margaret smiled
a sad. wistful smile, wlrJeh said as
plain os .words. "I'm so sorry you
didn't care for it, for if you had you
would have taken another one."
She doesn't seem to realize that, how
ever nice a cake may be, there exists
to the vulgnr mind such n thing us
well, repletioif is the prettiest term 1
can call it, though very small people
have expressed the some meaning by
announcing that they are "full now.
Then one day Murgp.ret began talk
inn of new snrlng frocks, and I was
foolish enough to say that I was think
ing of changing my fTressniaker.
"The very chance for you to try the
little woman who made my green
gown. She's so smart and so cheap.
She lives at Thero, I've forgotten,
but I'll look it up in my address book
and let you know."
Now, as a mattenof fact, I don't nd
mire Margaret's green gown in tho
least, and Dick snid.it was a "shriek
Trying to be tactful. I appreciatively
looked nt Margaret and replied: "Don't
bother, dear. I think perhaps after all
I'll give Mine. Iilnnk another chance.
"Yes, but you may us well have the
address, mayn't you? And I'm going
to her this week, niul if she says she
ennnot take any morei orders Just now
I'll mention that you. are a friend of
mine. Or or maybe -it would be bet
ter for you tocome with me."
Margaret Is always-full of plans, and,
knowing that to ralno her hopes to let
them fall again will hurt her feelings
I temporized by saying, "I'll think it
And so we went oa every minute of
tho time I spent with her, I feeling the
most ungracious creature on the earth
for Margaret never can see that she
has said enough. Yet she is a dear
and doesnioiiii so well.
Why don't.I go to.rerncllffe next sum
mer? Why don't I take her remedy
for sore throat? 'Why don't I take a
ticket for the current event talks? Why
don't I go to her dentist?
And indeed I Uiai't know why I don
do many of these things, except thut
don't particularly want to.
Dick and I never look forward to
our visits to Margaret, simply because
we find it bo bard to get away. We
plead that we haw engagements In
towu. "Won't they hold over?"
Do you remember Sam Weller's re-
ply to his father wlton that dear eld
gentleman suggested that his letter to
Mary, tho houstuuuid. was ruther short?
"Not a bit of It," suld Sum. "She'll
vlsh tltere vos more, and that's the
great art o' letter writln'."
Somehow those words always come
Into my head ns I travel home from
I wonder. Elsa, how you will like the
dollies and centerpiece I am making
for a friend who does a lot of Informal
entertaining chafing dish purties and
the like. Th set is of blue and white
barred tea toweling. A yurd and five
eighths of eighteen inch wide toweling
makes the twelve doilies, which are
nine Inches tire. A square of the
toweling wus too narrow to make a
good Kioklug centerpleeo, so I compro
mised on an oblong table runuer.
The edges of both doilies and center
piece are finished with heavily padded
buttonholing done with mercerized cot
ton the shade, of the blue bar in the
crash. Across the center of each dolly
and at both emlu of tho runner center
piece will be placed the initials of the
owner Iny cross, stitch, carried out la
two shaOt-s of blue. On a polished ma
hogany -table tho -Bet is stunning.
