THE GARDEN ISLAND.
Is the light weight champion of
the world. In a fair and open fight
the sturdy Ford has won its title
and holds it because it has more
strength for its weight, and can de
liver more power for its size, than
any car in the world's arena. The
Ford will go farther on a gallon of
gasoline, run longer on a set of tires,
and be less expensive for monthly
upkeep, than any other. What more
can you ask for in a car? These
are irrefutable facts established by
the car its itself, and must be
maintained. Catalogue on application.

Not A New Kid
Front a manuscript recently ob
tained by the University of Penn
sylvania from Theadelphia, a small
city in Egypt, it would appear
that the high cost of food and ex
cessive freight rates were an issue
in Egypt 1,800 years ago.
The manuscript is the report of
a sitologus, or collector of revenue, !
who represented the local govern
ment at Alexandria and worked
on a percentage plan.
He wasn't popular with the
common people, but as there were
tfo elections i n those days, the
sitologus did not mind. The peo
ple had been exploited for 5,000
years and were used to it.
The document, in part, consists
of a list of grain collected in sev
eral villages and the freight to be
charged on eac thj carry it to'
Alexandria. Theoistrict is about
twenty miles west of the Nile
which formed the trunk line in
The most interesting feature is

J. A. Cs Win Cup
At the close of the big League
season this year, the Lihue Juniors
were organized, the organization
to be composed of a number of
teams from Hanamaulu, Kapaia
and Lihue. Paul Isenbeig placed
a handsome silver cup in the
hands of the manager, to be given
to the winning team. The season
closed Sunday with the J. A. C.'s
in the lead.
The Juniors proved themselves
good players and worthy of due
consideration in the selection of
material for big league work for
the next series. Much o f the
success of the Junior League is
due to the excellent management
of Sheriff Rice who steered the
teams to victory.
some distance away. He objected
to the high taxes assessed and to
"the excessive freight charges.
It does not appear to have done
him any good, for there was not
in Kgypt at that time an interstate
commerce commission. The sitol
ogus corrected his figures in his
records to cover up his profit.
!! A FEW REMARKS f
The Wise Han About Town
The Art Of Quitting.
A man was put out as a vestry
man in a church because of his di
vorce. At first h e thought o f
fighting to be reinstated. And
then he thought he wouldn't, He
bowed to the will of the church
and went. He quit. Evidently
this gentleman has progressed
some distance i n philosophy.
There s no way to get even so
good as to agree with our adversary
while we are in the wav with him.
Do what he wants and then "quit
him." "Quit him" with such
finality that he realizes beyond all
peradventure that we have gone.
There's simply no answer to this
Admiral Dewey's autobiography,
which is appearing in one of the
magazines and is attracting perhaps
less attention than it should, has
a lot of very human touches in it.
I was interested in an incident he
related about how a certain man
became, a n Abolitionist. He'd
been neither one thing nor the
other until suddenly one day i n
New Orleans by an unexpected turn
cf affairs he was called' upon
actually to sell for a slave dealer
three young octoroons. They were
the age of the man's own daughter
and almost as white. It was more
than he could swallow. He was
an Abolitionist ever after. Admiral
Dewey tells this story to show how
strongly the personal element en
tered into public questions in that
clay, as in this. Is there a n y
question public or private that
is not also personal? If so I never
came across it.
Belle Beach, the authority on
riding, who has just written an
interesting book about riding for
women, says one thing that pleases
me immensely. It's about riding
astride. I've expressed myself on
that subject before and I take
pleasure in adding Belle Beach's
opinion. Says she: ''Riding
astride is a fad of the moment.
It will pass away." And then
she goes on to show how the side
saddle is not dangerous, that
women are built for it and that
there is no comparison between
the beauty o f cross and side
saddle. If you don't believe this,
read Belle Beach and be convinced!
