Sugar or Salt
Which Was It?
compliance to your request
that I pen you a few lines in reply
to certain remarkable discoveries
made by your Honolulu correspond
ent on information, I surmise,
gratuitously furnished him for the
edification of the Maui reading
public by Captain Macatilay (now
Pilot Macaulay, no relation how
ever of the great historian of that
name), that in my anxiety during
1889 to obtain important news for
the P. C. Advertiser of which the
late lamanted II. M. Whitney was
Editor-in-Chief, I took to the office
from the vivacious captain a bundle
containing salt instead of refined
sugar from Col. Spaulding's Mill
at Kealia, Kauai.
That sounded very nice, and I
hate even now, to denounce the
assertion as a mere hallucination
which in a moment of ecstacy
somewhat turned the mind of the
good old salt. It is news to me,
for I must admit that my memory
lapses into a vacuum on that salty
I joined the Kveniug Bulletin as
water-front reporter in 1882, and
several months later I was honored
with a similar position on the P.
C. Advertiser of which lie Hon.
Walter M. Gibson was proprietor
and editor. When I severed my con
nections with the reportorial staff
of the Advertiser during 1893, I was
never confronted with such an ns
tounding story as appeared in your
last Saturday's issue.
However it afforded amusement
to some of my friends, and I am
sorry now to rob them of the un
alloyed pleasures of believing such
a wonderful creation of a master
mariner's mind, altho sea-faring
men are noted narrators of fish
stories. As to what your worthy corres
pondent learned from the very lips
of the late Bristish Minister J. Hay
Wodehouse with regards to the gasoline-tank
story connected with the
late Robert W. Wilcox, I would
not accept that source as authority.
It was never denied before, because
few placed any credence in it.
Many tiow high in government
service were members of Wilcox's
famous band of about one hundred
men, and their statements should
take precdence. I must congratulate
your correspondent for the acquisi
tion of so much history of those
Yours Very Truly,

Some one has called the carbure
tor the lungs of the automobile.
Certainly there is no more vital
mechanism in a motor car than the
small device which breathes in the
air and vaporized gasoline and
feeds it to the engine in properly
mixed proportions Consequently,
a car's efficiency depends very
largely on the efficiency of the car
buretor. The Cadillac company has paid
especial attention to the subject of
scientific carburetion and the car
buretors used on their motor cars
are made by the company accord
ing to their own standards. On
the 1914 Cadillac will be found a
new feature that adds materially
to the efficiency of the carburetor.
This is an electrical heating device
which vaporizes the gasoline before
the engine is started. This makes
it possible to start on lower grades
of fuel than heretofore and will
prove a great boon, paitieulaily in
A strong argument for the keep
ing of comparative cost data by the
owners of motor trucks is made by
Rolliu W. Hutchinson, Jr. recently
appointed Truck Transportation
Engineer of the Packard Motor
"When a truck user keeps cost
statistics over a reasonable period
of time he has something tangible
to prove or disprove the claims
made by the manufacturer before
the sale. The figures will show at
a glance whether or not his pur
chase has been a profitable invest
ment or whether horses or a truck
of some other make would have
been better for his particular case-
"Figures on the operation of
trucks are interesting information
on the success of motor transporta
tion. Such data is much sought
by the man who contemplates re
volutioniz.ing his hauling system
by the installation of power pro
"in the milling business, the
motor truck has made comparative
ly little headway so far, although
conditions are often quite favorable
its proper utilization. All over
the central west and in some sections
of the cast, there are mills which
can deliver their product direct by
motor truck to the wholesaler or
One of these is the Bennett Mil
ling Company, of Geneva, Illinois,
which uses its three-ton Packard
for making deliveries over country
roads to merchants in a number of
"President Bennett states that it
costs about as much to operate
three two-horse teams as it does
h!s company's truck. The truck,
on the other hand, does the work
of five teams. Its record, as given
by Mr. Bennett, shows an operat
ing cost of $9.78 a day. In a
period of fifteen months it carried
4174.86 tons, the highest total for
a single month being 426.5 tons.
In that time the Packard covered
12,068 miles or an average of about
35 miles a day."

And now it's near enough to
Christmas time to begin buying the

earls of those dear to you. Can
you conceive of a better present
practical, educational, long-lasting
than a Kodak?
There's a grand lot to choose
from, according to ycur purse
Kodaks Irom $6.00 to $85.00;
Brownies, for the younger ones,
$1.00 to $12.00: and if your rela

the present of a Kodak Film Tank
($2.50) or a Brownie Enlarging
Camera ($2.00 up) or a Portrait
Attachment (50c.) will be greatly
Tripods ($1.50 up) are very use
ful: a Ruby Lamp(25c. up) deserves
consideration; a present of a half
dozen rolls of Film would make the
recipient happy; a package of Ve

some Velox Paper might help solve
Enlarged pictures of local inter

cost from 30c. to $3.00 each.
