Mongoose Not So Bad
As He Is Pictured
Editor of Maul New8
In the Honolulu Star-Dulletln of
July 28 there Is an article under the
caption "Drive Launched on Mongoose
to Rid Islands of the Pest" in which
the writer in my opinion handles Mr.
Mongoose with undue severity.
The mongoose was imported some
40 years ago to rid the cane tlelds of
a plague of rats and he has done
what was asked of him well. In this
respect he has been a valuable mem
ber of bur society and we should
"give the devil his due." At that
time there were considerable portions
of our cane fields that were so bad
ly damaged by rats that they were
not worth harvesting and now rat
eaten cane is almost unknown.
The drawback to the Mongoose Is
. that he does not confine his menu to
rats but varies It with all kinds of
barnyard fowl and eggs and also
ground-nesting game birds form a
good part of his dietary. Another re
' grettable thing about him Is that he
is very fond of our field lizards or
skinks which have an Important part
to play In the "balance of nature."
These lizards feed on ticks among
other things and since the advent of
the Mongoose and the consequent
scarcity of lizards ticks have become
a bothersome pest to stock raisers.
Ticks, however, in sufficient quanti
ties are said to be deadly to the Mon
goose and to keep him down in num
bers. In the article in the Star-Bulletin.
Mr. Dob Llllis, the Territorial flsh
and game warden, is quoted as say
ing that the Mongoose Is the worst
menace to growing crops in the Terri
tory. I take Issue with Mr. Lillls on
this, If he is correctly quoted. The
Mongoose Is a carnlverous beast and
I know of no growing crop that he In
I believe a "drive" on the Mongoose
is in order as it will put the fear of
man into him and he will be more
respectful of our property rights In
poultry but those of us who are In
terested in sugar (and who are not
directly or Indirectly?) will regret it
if he Is exterminated.

Described by Lecturer
On Sunday evening at the Kahului
Community House Dr. Frederick Bade
gave his lecture on "A Thousand
Years Before Abraham" to an audi
ence of about a hundred Maui people
who were attracted by the announce
ment of the distinguished Biblical
scholar's presence. The lecture was
preceded by an enjoyable song ser
vice led by Rev. G. H. DeKay, and
other parts of the regular Sunday eve
ning service were taken by Rev. E. E.
Pleasant, W. C. Crlder, and Yee Kul.
By means of stereopticon slides Dr.
Bade illustrated his address, showing
photographs of clay tablets found In
ruins of ancient Babylonia, and dat
ing back from two to three thousand
years before Christ. Ancient temple
accounts were shown; deeds to prop
erty, encased within clay envelopes:
the famous "Code of Hamurabl" upon
which are undoubtedly based some of
the Hebrew commandments; and
which in turn show the influence of
a still more ancient code: and many
other interesting things which evi
denced the civilization of more than
5000 years ago.
Maul has had the opportunity thus
to hear a world traveller and a
scholar who ranks among the highest,
and the number who took advantage
shows that Maultes appreciate such

Piles for Mala Wharf
Are Rafted to Lahaina
Three lrage rafts of piles arrived
at Lahaina from Honolulu early this
week. The piles were received at
Honolulu from Puget Sound,, ar
ranged In raits at Honolulu harbor
and towed across to Lahaina, where
they are needed for Mala wharf work.
Ed Lord, the contractor, attended to
the shackling of the piles before they
The piles are to be driven into the
"bottomless pit" at the end of the
present portion of the new wharf, in
order to make a foundation for the
concrete piles which are to be driven
on top of them.
The wharf consl ruction had ad
vanced to a considerable distance
from the shore when the concrete
piles went through a crust and prac
tically disappeared. The only method
determined upon was to drive suffi
cient piles to form a fotmdation and
then put the concrete piles upon
Fifteen-foot concrete hollow piles
will first be placed upon the heads of
the wooden piles, and In turn the long
wooden piles will be driven into the
hollow ones. It is believed this
method will make a firm foundation.

Old oil should be drained from the crankcase at
regular intervals and replaced with fresh oil.
This statement is made because engine operation causes
road dust, carbon, fine metal particles and other impurities
to accumulate in the crafhkease oil. The gritty oil circulates
through the engine, impairing its performance, and ulti
mately leads to rapid depreciation and repairs.
These careful instructions from the manufacturer are
often disregarded; cleaning the crankcase is a job generally
To meet this need Modern Crankcase Cleaning Service
has been established by first-class garages and other
dealers co-operating with the Standard Oil Company.
These garages and dealers use Calol Flushing Oil, the
scientific agent that cleans out old oil, dirt, grit and other
impurities and does not impair the lubricating efficiency
of fresh oil used. The cleaned crankcase is refilled with the
proper grade of Zerolene.
