Leave For Front
The many friends of Dr. Sanborn,
of Molokai, will be interested to know
that he will be leaving next week for
Honolulu to enter the service of the
government, in the effort to "do his

his departure from Molokai, a friend
sends the following:
Dr. Fletcher G. Sanborn, govern

States army next week, awaiting
further orders at Honolulu; having

him. Immediately that he was out of
danger, the doctor took the examina

Rice Withdrawn As
The following very important rul
ing has been sent out by the food ad
ministration, being Bulletin No. 38:
Rice as a substitute has been per
mitted to bo sold with flour but in
some localities this has not had the
effect of cutting down the consump
tion of flour, because the per capita
consumption of rice is four times that
of flour and many rice consumers
have developed a very strong ap
petite for flour which they purchase
with their rice and trade the flour
to others thus enabling them to ob
tain Tiieir full flour requirements.
Merchants are therefore urged to
sell substitutes other than rice with
Beginning April 15th rice will be

Dr. Williams' Sermon
Dr. J. H. Williams spoke Sunday
morning at the Makawao Union
Church on "Jesus' Motive in Winning
Men." He centered his thought
around Nichodemus who came to
Jesus frankly and candidly, though
cautiously. "Sir, we know that thou
art a teacher come from God; for
no one can do these signs that thou
doest except God be with him" was
Nichodemus' stated reason for com
ing to Jesus. Whoever carefully con
siders Jesus and his truth will be
compelled to think.
Nichodemus passed through three
stages of life. First ho had his sea
son of thinking when the new truth
and fuller knowledge of life came to
him. Though Nichodemus was one
of the prominent rulers of the
Jews. Jesus gave him no undue def
erence. Rather Jesus faced him as
man with man. Jesus told him that
nothing could take the place of the
spiritual acceptance of moral truth.
It was not a question of his position
or rank, but of his being born into
The second state of Nichodemus
was his time of readjustment to the
truth he had heard and accepted from
Jesus. It was during this period
when he stood up among the Jewish
rulers and acknowledged his disciple
ship. He mildly championed Jesus
against the plotting of his enemies.
The third state was of decision
and positive action. The record is
brief and incomplete. But It is stat
ed that Nichodemus brought spices
for Jesus' body that the burial might
bo fitting for one who had done so
much for Nichodemus. This good
man was led out to larger, nobler.
life by the careful consideration of
Jesus and his life. It waB the motive
of Jesus thus to draw out men and
women to the realization of their best
St. Patrick: Lessons From His Life
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
It is a point of interest, if not of
significance, that the patron saint of
Ireland, St. Patrick, so far as birth
place goes, was not an Irishman, but
a Scotchman. He was born not far
from Glasgow, at what Is now known
as the town of Dumbarton. The year
of his birth is uncertain, but It was
well on toward the close of the fourth
century, some say In the year A. D.
396. Again, it is a point of interest
that his father was a deacon in Holy
Orders, (and, also, a magistrate, or
Roman civil officer,) and his grand
father a priest, bo we learn from St.
Patrick's "Confessions," a fact which
discloses to us that a celibate minis
try was not universal at that period,
even in the western Church. Nor
was it until much later times.
The life of St. Patrick is involved
in obscurity. That he was captured
by Irish marauders, when a lad of,
perhaps, sixteen years, who took him
to Ireland, and sold him into slavery,
we know. Slavery was his condition
for six years, and ia it he underwent
the greatest hardships. His chief oc
cupation was that of a herdsman. At
times, while following his lonely
work, he had visions, due, probably,
in large measure, to hunger. In one
or more of these visions, he was
strongly urged to make his escape
from slavery. One reason why he
desired to escape from slavery was
the interest which had been awaken
ed in his soul for the Irish people.
Though he had not been profoundly
taught in religious doctrine nnd dis
cipline, yet from childhood ho had
been trained in the" Christian faith,
and what he saw of the ignorance of
that faith in Ireland, led him to make
a vow that if he could escape to free
dom, it should be his purpose to pre
pare for Holy Orders, and to give
himself, in the ministry of Christ, to
the pedp'le of Ireland. He made tho
effort to escape, and succeeded, al
though, before reaching his kinsfolk,
in Scotland, ho was again captured,
nnd spent a second brief period in
slavery. On reaching his family, he
told them of his experiences, of bl.i
vow, and of his determination to pre
pare for missionary work in Ireland.
That he had the opportunity for theo
logical training, nnd embraced it we
know, but we are not certain where
he received it. The Roman Church
claims that he received it at the hands
of St. Martin, of Tours, but the claim
lacks historical support, as does also
the claim that he went to Rome for
It. The most generally conceded
opinion is that St. Ninian, of Scot
land, a disciple of St. Martin, was his
By whomsoever trained for the
priesthood, and by whomsoever con
secrated to the Bishopric, the undis
puted fact i3 that St. Patrick became
a missionary, and a Bishop to the peo
ple of ancient Ireland, and, for at
least the third of a century, so iden
tified himself with their interests, of
every sort, and so labored among
them, with unexampled zeal,
fidelity, and success, that there is
little wonder that he should be
thought of as an Irishman, or that
he should be chosen the patron
saint of the Irish people.
Whatever St. Patrick owed to Scot
land, educationally, or in tho way of
theological training, he fully paid the
debt, by giving back to her, from his
own Irish priests, a service of mis
sionary ardor which reminds us nf
niiuaiuiii; nines. Ana an tnis was
over, and above what he did for Ire
land; a work the result of which was
to bring that land into the column of
Christian nations. What was it Jesus
said? "Give and it shall be given unto
you, good measure, shaken together,
running over, shall they give into
your bosom; for with what measure
ye meet, it shall be measured to you,
One of the outstanding lessons in
the life of St. Patrick is that of the
inter-play of influences at work In,
and among, men and nations. None
of us llveth unto himself. He who
so attempts is of all men most misera
ble, for, as Seneca says: No man can
live happily who regards himself
alone, who would turn everything to
his own advantage. To live for oth-
ers, is the truest, and noblest way of
living for one's self. That is what
St. Patrick did. He lived for others,
for the very best and highest in oth-
ers, and the result was, the cultiva
tion of the best and highest In him
self. Every window in his soul had
a God-ward outlook, and, as the soul's
attitude toward God determines its .
attitude towards mankind, he had one v
aim and passion in life-the moral and
spiritual betterment of his fellows.
The good, as well as the evil, that
men do lives after them. We live,
in influence, for weal or woe, after
we are dead and gone. It is more
than a mlllenlum of years since St.
Patrick died, but there is influence
in the very thought of him to-day.
To every succeeding generation, he
communicates something of the spirit
of his great, good name. The story
of his Christian faith, and trust, his
great courage, his benevolence and
generosity, his patient persistence in
well doing in face of all discourage
ments, adds to the sum total of
things which make for the "world's
uplifting. Well has it been said: 'It
is not to our contemporaries alone to
whom we may be a blessing or a curse.'
to the men and women, and children,
of oncoming generations.
So Good They Are
(The following from the Advertiser.
of Honolulu, is published by request
of the Maul Red Cross.)
Special arrangements are being
made in New York by the distribu
tion heads to rush through the cases
of Hawaiian supplies for the Red
Cross, as they are so satisfactory that
they are to ,be hurried to France for
the use of the hospitals there. This
news comes to Honolulu in a letter
from Miss Sara Nieman, director of
women's work of the fourteenth di
vision, at the Red Cross headquarters
in Washington, to Miss Beatrice Cas
tle, who is the supervisor of women's
work for tho Territory.
Red Cross work is being speeded up
all over the country in readiness for
whatever turns the fighting may take
this spring. It is thought that it will
soon become heavier and there will
bo a huge demand for dressings and
garments, which cannot be filled un
less there is a large reserve stock on
hand and a great amount of work con
stantly coming in.
Gertrude Austin, chief of the surgi
cal dressings Bervice for the Ameri
can Red Cross at 25 Rue Pierre
Chanon, Paris, has also written to
Miss Castle acknowledging the re
ceipt of a case of Hawaiian dressings.
"A case of your dressings has just
been opened in our packing rooms,
which are now growing most alarm
ingly empty. A few weeks ago thous
ands of cases all packed were piled
nearly to the ceiling waiting to be
sent to our hospitals. How many of
these cases have gone out and the or
ders still come larger than ever. We
count on you to enable us to keep
pace with the needs of our men.
"Thank you for your help."
