in advertising. I ts accunnilated
force is what makes it pay. The
size of an ad is not so nearly im

you are a new advertiser, you will
get better results six months from
now than you will to-morrow, pro

Oi' course we m n y not know
what we are talking about, but it
strikes us as just a little strange
for the county to switch all its road
building machinery from Lawai to
Wailua and later on return to Ke
kaha for the purpose of macadamiz
ing three miles of road. To the
ordinary man it would seem less
expensive to move the machinery
over there and finish up while near
at hnnd, thus saving the expense
returning from the Hanalei side.
Auk you one of the mail order
fiends? Are you one of those mis
guided mortals who think you can't
get what you want unless you send
"to the cvist?" Don't be a sucker
any longer. Look about you; visit
the local stores, and see how their
goods a u d prices compare with
those of the big stores. You will
find, in nine cases out often, that
you can buy the self- same goods
from the local merchants just as
cheap as, or cheaper than, from
the coast mail order houses. In the
tenth case you may have to pay as
shade more, but you know what
you are paying for. Your home
merchants let you see the goods
befoie you pay for them; while the
mail-order house makes you pay
before you see. I ts "cash with
order," everytime with them. How
often have you had to pay for and
keep goods that you never would
have thought of buying had you
seen them first? Yet, some of you
continue to walk right into the
trap again, the very first chance
County Assistant Engineer J. 13.
Keightley in a recent conversation
with a reporter, on being asked if
the Kealia hill grade is not seven
per cent instead of six per cent as
the specifications call for, replied
by telling the newspaper man to
mind his own business, and that if
lie wished to know what grade he
had run, to take a line and go
over it. Now, in the first p'.iee,
we are not surveyors- don't pre
tend to be, like some others and
therefore cannot follow his in
structions. In the second place,
we wouldn't do it il we could, tor
we are voters and taxpayers, ami
together with our readers who are
also both voters and taxpayers,
have a right to demand ju.it such
We therefore most respectfully
requesEngineer Keightley or any
member of the Loan Eund Com
mission to furnish this office for
our next issue with the per cent of
the Kealia grade.
Mr. Keightley 's attitude smacks
o f a Star Chamber procccdurc
which it would be wise for the
Loan Eund Commission to avoid.
There is a heavy grade between
Koloa and Waimea, which, when
wet cannot possibly be made with
a four horse Kind. Of course this
grade was completed long ago,
but to continue to construct such
grades if such is being done,
puts Kauai in the class with Ho
nolulu road workers.

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS
The scathing fires of criticism
hurled- at me by you and "Tax
payer" in the last issue of
Gardes Isi.asd prompt me to
suggest that in future you place
yourselves in possession of a few
"facts" before wasting valuable
space in your paper. At the time
the Koloa Hill was regraded, I
had not even a bowing acquain
tance with Kauai, and therefore
must emphatically decline t h e
.honors thrust upon me in crediting
me with the piece of engineering
work in question.

pearing in our last issue, connect
ing County Engineer Kcighilev
with the Koloa grade, we will say
that same was based upon a com
munication to this office, a n d
which Mr. Keightley himself has
been shown. We will admit
having slightly changed the com
munication, and feel sure that Mi.
Keightley will freely admit that
the changed form was mild indeed
in comparison to the original.
However, i t seems that Mr.
Keightlev did not run this grade,
and that therefore through our
communication he has been un
The Koloa grade is an excellent
grade with the exception of a
stretch of some 200 feet at the top.
To take this down about 18 inches
would give us a grade such as we
might reasonably expect 6 per
