Mrs. Howell Receives
Letter From Front
Grandson Tells Difficulties Of Letter
Writing Could Tell Lots But
Censor Objects Young Man Has
Been In Hottest Fighting Of War
Mrs. A. B. Howell has just receiv
ed a letter from her grandson, Dean
H. Miner, who has heen fighting In
France all through the recent big of
fensive of the Allies, which is of gen
eral interest in that it throws some
side lights on how our boys are living
In France. The young man is with a
machine gun battalion, and although
he says nothing about his military
activities recently, Mrs. Howell has
learned from other sources that the
division he is with has been engaged
In some of the hardest fighting of the
year under the British general, Haig,
in the Somme district. His brigade
was reviewed recently by King
George King, of England, who highly
complimented them on their work.
Besides Miner, who is from New
York, Mrs. Howell has another a
grandson in the service, Llewellyn
Haskell, of Berkeley, who is now in
Newport News, Vn. Tommie Howell,
a third grandson, the son of Hugh
Howell, of Wailukn, also recently en
liHled in the navy from New York.
The letter follows:

E. F., July 26, 1918.
Received your letter of June 3rd
relayed from N. Y. by Mother a few
days ago. This Is the first chance I
have had for almost two weeks to
write and now I am making moBt of
the time by writing to the ones who
count most with me, my Grandmother
Mother and Wife. I enclose all three
In one envelope to the base censor
and pray that they will be speedily
I am enclosing two photos taken in
Camp Wadsworth, S. D. last winter
of a group of men in Co. D with and
without their gas masks. At the time
they were taken we thought it a huge
joke but now we're glad to carry them
wherever we go.
I hope you'll pardon the pencil and
writing, but it's the best I can do, for
my ink Is just about gone in my
fountain pen enough left to address
two or three envelopes at most and
my table and chair consist of my
knee and an overcoat laid on the floor
of a two-man dugout.
In the two months we have been
"over here" we have covered a great
deal of ground and seen France from
the viewpoint of the pedestrian. A
thing I never expected to do. The
bad part of It ail, when we write we
must confine c.urselves to personal
matters only. It makes it very hard
to write decently, for I get started on
a wonderful train of thought and sua
denly discover that it won't get by
and to continue would be just a waste
July 27 7 P. M.
Got just so far and was told to re-
port to Battallion Hdqrs. as signal
operator for the night. Have just
dressed and in about five minutes I
leave with full pack for parts un
Because her fiance expects to de
part for a mainland army post very
Boon, with likelihood of leaving short
ly thereafter for France, Miss Garnie
E. Rosecrans, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. F. P. Rosecrans, of Paia, consent
ed to a quick war-time wedding and
became the bride of Corporal William
Phillips, U. S. A., within a few hours
after she had made her decision.
Mr. Phillips, who was until a few
months was an employee of the Maui
Agricultural Company, at Paia, has
since been a member of one of the
Hawaiian regiments at Schofield Bar
racks. He recently was accepted as
a student candidate for a commission
through the officers' training camp,
and expects to leave this week for
Camp Pike, Arkansas, where the
school is now located.
Coming home to Maui last Saturday
night on a few day s leave of absence,
the marriage was decided upon Sun
day afternoon, and took place at the
Paia Union Church at 8 o'clock the
same evening. A large number of
friends of the young people were pres
ent nevertheless, invitations having
been telephoned out about 4 oclocK
The bride was attended by her
sinter. Miss Rita Rosecrans, as bride i
maid, while the groom had as best
man B. J. Bridgeford, a comrade in
arms, and also another Maui boy. The
ceremony was performed by the Rev,
A. Craig Bowdish, pastor of the
church. Mrs. J. C. Villiers played tn
wedding music most effectively.
The church decorations consisted
of patted palms, shasta daisies and
the American colars.
Later an informal reception was
held in the church parlors where the
registry wa3 signed by many friends
Among those present in the crowd

were the employees of Paia Store and
the entire office force of the planta
Both Mr. and Mrs. Phillips are pop
ular among a large circlo of friends
on Maul, who will wish for them the
fullest measuro of happiness loiiow
ing the war, for they are more than
likely to be separated for that length
of time. It is possible that Mrs. run
lips, may go to the mainland to be
near her husband during the several
months he will be in Arkansas before
being sent abroad.

FAIR PRICES AND CHEAP EGGS
(A Food Editorial)
A Maui man who is quite extensive
ly engaged in producing eggs, lias
made complaint to the territorial food
administration that the prices listed
by the Fair Trice Committee are not
fair to the producer. He recommends
that the first word of the committee's
name bo eliminated.
This writer points out that it is not
possible 1o buy chicken feed at pre
sent prices and sell eggs at 65 cents
to 75 cents. This is about the price
eggs sold for in normal times with
feeds at less than a third the price
An yet the published price object
ed to is taken from reports sent in by
some 50 grocers of Maui, and includes
a fair profit to themselves in handling
The disrepancy is due to the fact
that for the most part the eggs in the
local grocery stores are supplied by
small farmers or others who produce
them solely as a by-product. Their
hens for the most, part pick up their
own living or are fed on table scraps,
little or no feeds being bought for
them directly. They thus can and do
sell eggs at a price that the professi
onal poult ryman cannot feed his flock
on, let alone make a profit.
Another thing. To many people
"eggs is eggs". But very often
the small, doubtful-looking eggs from
the corner grocer, or from the pake
who brings them to the back door,
would be dear at any price.
Good eggs today are worth all the
producer can get for them inside of
$1 per dozen, and he will not be guil
ty of profiteering at that. At the pre
sent time they are retailing on the
coast markets at from 75 to 80 cents
for the higher grades. With present
high freight rates and consequent
added cost of chicken feeds here, a
higher price than this for first class
Island eggs is not only justified but
necessary if the poultryman is to
The fact that fair price committees
(which are a part of the national food
administration and chiefly to prevent
injustice to the consumer) cannot or
dinarily get back of the wholesale
cost in adjusting prices, does not
necessarily indicate that it is not just
what its name implies. In fact, ac
cording to an abundance of testimony,
the fair price committees throughout
the country have within a few months
been the means of stabilizing prices
as probably would have been imposs
ible by any other means.
LIFTED AFTER MONDAY
Beginning next Monday wheatless
days and meals will be a thing of
the pnst in Hawaii, just as they now
are in all the Allied counlries. Food
Administrator Child has made the an
nouncement. It does not mean, however, that
pure wheat bread may be eaten, but
it will be r f a standard 80 percent of
wheat flour, instead of 50 percent,
which will be a big improvement.
Dealers will hereafter be required
to pell at the rate of 2 pounds of sub
stitutes with every 8 pounds of white
Hour they nell. A little later it is ex
peciod that they will all handle in
seacl of white flour what is to be put
out by the mills and known as "Vic
tory mixed flour," which will contain
the 20 percent of substitutes ready
The iz cr-ving in wheat made dur
ing the past ye-ir through tho patri
otic effort a nf the? people of the Unit
ed States, together with big wheat
crops this year, are responsible for
tho improved situation.

NATURE'S GREATEST ALLY
IN RESTORING DISEASED CONDITIONS OF THE BODY TO
PERFECT HEALTH, WITHOUT THE AID OF
DRUG OR SURGERY.
Removing the Cause of Disease
Is the work of the Scientific Chiropractor who does not waste his time
treating the effect or so-called disease.
MODERN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH HAS PROVEN THAT
NINETY PERCENT OP ALL DISTURBANCES IN THE HUMAN
STRUCTURE FOLLOWS NERVE COMPRESSION.
Every liberal minded physician and scientist who investigates Chir
ropractic Adjustment says it is logical and in accord with facts.
What is Disease?
What Causes Disease?
DISEASE IS A LACK OF OR EXCESS OF FUNCTION in
any part of the body. All function is controlled by mental impulses
from the brain. Therefore the CAUSE OF DISEASE must be an
interference with the line of communication between the brain and the
diseased part. It necessarily follows that the only pcrmament way to
do away with the disease is to remove the obstruction and thus restore
free communication. Chiropractors do this by adjusting the sub-luxa
tion winch is causing the obstruction.
Chiropractic is a scientific method of removing the cause of
disease (acute or chronic) and is based upon a correct knowledge of
the brain, spine, spinal cord and nerves emanating therefrom. Pressure
on a nerve at the opening where it leaves the spine, will cause disease
in that organ or tissue at which the nerve ends. The Chiropractor,
after locating the place of the pressure (by vertebral palpation and the
tracing of the tender nerves) adjusts, with his hand, the sub-luxated
vertebrae which relieves the pressure and enables "Nature" to restore
normal condition Ilea'th. There can be no effect without a cause.
CHIROPRACTIC REMOVES THE CAUSE OF DISEASE. TRY
Edison's Opinion : "The doctor of the future will give no medicine,
but will interests his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet,
and in the cause and prevention of disease."
IF YOU ARE NOT WELL AND HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING
ELSE WITH NO LASTING RESULTS, TRY CHIROPRACTIC
(SPINAL) ADJUSTMENTS AND GET WELL.
Chiropractic adjustments will keep you in good health, as well as
restore you to health. One adjustment a week, if you are in normal
health, will add years to your life. Good for old and young. SEE
