THE RED CROSS SHOP
(By the Red Cross Shop's Profession
al Press Agent.)
The Red Cross Shop is planning a
gigantic sale for Saturday, December
14th, when the Shop will open at 8:30
a. ni. and continue open throughout
the day and evening, to give all an
opportunity to share in the bai gains.
Results for the actual three full
working days of the Shop have been
so good that it is hoped and believed
that the coming sale, planned on a
large scale, will show unusual returns.
It might bo mentioned here that all
money collected Is turned in to the
local Red Cross Chapter on Maui,
and not sent to Honolulu or elsewhere.
The coming sale, like all others, is
of course dependent on the generous
Maui public for donations. No fear
is felt in this connection but that there
will be plenty and to rpare, especially
at this season.
Although the shop will open for
business at 8:30 a. m., the special
feature of this sale, consisting of eat
ables, will take place at 11 o'clock.
This is not arranged for the benefit of
Any one class of people; rather, for
'All who appreciate culinary triumphs.
KBgard It in the light of a high-class
city delicatessen, with lucious cakes,
pies, roasted meats, fresh home-made
bread, salads, baked beans, cookies,
candies, jellies and jams, fruits, vege
tables, etc. Come all of you epicures
and buy your lunch and dinner of
edibles prepared by the best cooks of
Maui, and lay in a stock of jellies and
jams, honey, cookies, etc., for future
consumption. The prices will be sur
prisingly low, the qualUy of the very
best, and as to loothsomeness, they
will be second to none. Do not for
get this food sale at 11 o'clock, Satur
day, December 14th. It is hoped to
offer the public at this time, laulau
pig with sweet potatoes, and a baked
ham. But we haven't the pig and we
haven't the ham! Those of the Shop
cannot remember whot a ham looks
like. Who will give us a pig, and a
And Best Vault
ham likewise? Sweet potatoes will
be very welcome too
In the dishes first enumerated above
containing t-ugar, there Is the oppor
tunity for real self-denying generosity
on the part of the donors. They may
forego their share of sugar to prepare
these things, which will be a real
Christmas gift. Remember that the
sugar allotment per person Is now
four poundri per person. If anyone
vill donate live fowls, there will be
volunteers to cook them for the sale.
All donations not perishable should be
in tho Shop Friday, and the perish
able goods can be sent in before 9
o'clock Saturday morning. Of course,
if we are fortunate In receiving a pig
and a ham, we should have them Wed
nesday ia order to prepare them for
the sale. Now don't forget to help
make this delicatessen or "good eats"
pale a huge success. Let us work to
gether with the spirit, of tho coming
Christmas-tide in ou. hearts, remem
bering that it is for our beloved Red
Cross. Wte are apt to think of the
Red Cross as the gr'.a. nurse-mother,
tenderly caring for her wounded sons
and starving little ones. For this
work she might better be represented
as the housewife mother, practical
and thrifty, busy in the great national
attic cleaning that he may utilize
every bit of material and gain every
cent of ready cash to provide for her
children. This department may be
less romantic than other branches of
the Red Cross work, but it is undeni
ably fundamental, Important and ex
ceedingly useful and prolific In resulls.
For the Christmas trade the Shop
needs toys, clothing, crockery, and
anything else you have to spare.
There is a violin for sale in the
Shop. Does anyone want to make a
Chvistmas gift of a violin to a musical
friend? Then come In and see this
one before It goes.

TERRIFIC STORM TIES
UP BUSINESS ON OAHU
(Received by mail from Lahaina at noon today.)
HONOLULU, December 3 A terrific northeast gale which has
continued all today, increasing in violence towards nightfall, has done
much damage throughout the city. The storm probably reached its
greatest violence about 6:30 o'clock when a wind velocity of nearly 70
miles per hour was recorded.
Algaroba and other trees are down by hundreds all over the island,
and telephone communication and light xjwer systems are prostrated.
All street cars stopped running about 5 o'clock when power was turned
off to guard against loss of life from tangled wires.
Many districts in the city are without light tonight.
At Pearl Harbor the big aerials of the wireless station are down
and wireless aommunication with the coast is thus cut off.
Many trees in Kuhio Place, Waikiki, as well as the big flag pole
there, were blown down.
Thousands of persons walked home last evening or stayed in down
town hotels on account of the stopping of street car service.
Property damage has not been estimated, but must be very heavy.
The job of clearing away the hundreds of trees in the streets all
over town, and of restoring broken wires will probably require several
irystai vv mie
washes woolens perfectly
The things you knit, and the things from which you hope
to get longer wear deserve so much care. Crystal White
cleans, softens, lengthens the life of fabrics.
It's the perfect family soap for all
household purposes and helps in the "save
and serve" campaign.
Tell your grocer to send you
a cake of CRYSTAL WHITE today.
