"The Store for Good Clothes" '
Mrs. West Popular
Mrs. West, the popular demons
trator of "Califene," and who is
located at the Lihue Store, is one
of the busiest bodies in the Terri
tory. The store is crowded eyery
day with people who, since tast
ing the delicious pastry manufac
tured from this new shortning,
haunt the spot with abnormal
appetites. Ye Editor acknowledges
a bag of delicious doughnuts
which he found to.be a little better
than anything in this line that he
has had in many a day. Mrs. West
has the art of cooking so well in
hand, that this part of the demons
trating is attracting quite as much
attention a s the Califene itself.
We would advise those who have
not yet had the good fortune to
sample the good things which she
is offering the public, to drop in
and be convinced of the wonderful
things which can be made from
this new preparation. There is no
necessity of suggesting that those
who have already sampled them,
to return for more, for knowing
ourselves to be of a normal frame
of mind, and acknowledging our
desire so visit the demonstration
as often as possible, it is natural
to suppose that the rest of vou who
have partaken of the won'derful
delicacies, will "come again."

WORK BY MACHINERY
There is a novel use to which the
motion picture may be put which
according t o a description i n
Factory has reduced n working
man's time in putting machines
tbgether nearly half an hour, or
from 37'2 minutes to hYi minutes.
This was done b photographing
hun at his work and then studying
the tiny film with a microscope to
determine at what points the mo
tions he made were losing time.
11ns speeding up of the man then
was more apparent than actual,
and he now does as easily as before
a far larger amount of work and
gets more pay.
A woman at a machine was test
ed in the same way, with a clock
beside her which spilt seconds.
The clock was photographed as
well as her motions and the time
of them thus recorded was studied
to determine how she could make
straighter and more effective move
The argument is that a man can
make about 150,000 motions in a
business day. If the number can
be reduced to 75,000 his effective
ness as a worker has been multi
plied by two. It is hard to think
of any common process which
might not be improved by this sort
of scrutiny, s the writer
enthuiastically assures one. Per
haps the next step will be to photo
graph the painter at work him of
the studio as well as him of the
clapboards and so discover just
why one artist's touch on the
canvas makes for delight of thou-1
sands and another bores us all.
