ed against banana shipments to the
Coast until such time as the nature

In a quarrel over the proper handl

American Can Company, at Haiku,

a pocket knife and slashed Agaplto

the shoulder and chest.

covered that his injuries are not seri

Manoa operators when they ran the

up to its maximum, and listened in
on the strange Germanized English
messags. Its wording gave every in

a German, as well as the untruthful
ness of the message.
Because of the character of the Ma

lieved the message could have come
from Berlin, but from some point
from 1000 to 2000 miles away.
On a previous voyage to Honolulu
the Manoa received another false and
Btrange wireless message which re
ported the capture of Amiens during
the initial part of the German drive
on the West Front. Messages have
also been picked up by the Lurline
which told of great victories being
won by the German armies on the
Europeans battle fields.

"SAFETY FIRST" STEERING DEVICE
Simple, Positive, Low-Priced
MAKES YOUR FORD WALK A CIIAEK IJNE.
AUTOMATICALLY CORRECTS mistakes so far as steering is con
cerned, whether made through oversight, inadvertence or unavoidable
accident. It makes rough roads easy. It lessens wear on machine and
tires and saves many times its cost in reduced lire expense. It auto
matically takes up lost motion between steering wheel and road wheels
when steering gear is worn, keeping road wheels in perfect alignment.
IN TRAVELING ROUGH, MUDDY OR SANDY ROADS, in turn-
irg corners, or around other vehicles, or when coming in contact with
tcnes, etc., the "Safety First" shows its real worth and stands every
lest. With the "Safety First" the driving of ladies and beginners is
like that of a veteran.
Can be attached by anyone with a wrench, in less than 10 minutes.
