silk worms, his "silk" plantation
being established at Hanalei, Kau

passed one of the famous blue
laws, he'eiaimed, to injure his
This particular blue law prohib

the mulberry trees on Sundays.
Since the silk worms had to be fed
on entirely fresh leaves, Sunday
was a day of starvation for them.

Can We Save on Dress?
Do we give more time, I wonder, to the matter of
cress that we really need to?
That is, I mean, those of us who consider ourselves
sensible in this matter.
Some there are we know who spend most of their
time and money on dress. They give it far more at
tention than it requires, or is worth, But most of ut
only jive it such time and thought as we believe is
must have. But I wonder are we mistaken in this and
could we get just as satisfactory results with far ltss
expenditure of thought and time. If we could, wouldn't it be an end
to be desired?
My attention was called to the matter bv an experience related to
me by a friend. She is a woman ot average means, with a pleasant
social circle who dresses prettily and in good taste, but does not go in
for the extretnes of fashion nor the more costly aoparel. One would
sav she is sensible in the matters of clothes, but this does not mean
3he Is freak'shly plain or out of fashirn. She gives a fair amount of
time and thought to dress, but the subject does not absorb her.
The other day in discussing her outfit she said; "I have discover
ed that I have been giving a lot more time to what dresses to get and
how to haev them made and to shoes and hats and such things than
is at all necessary. When I look back on the hours and days I have
wasted, I am appalled."
"But," I protested, "I should never say vou wasted time on
"I never thought I did either. But the last two veirs have
taught me a lesson. For manv and various reasons. I haven't bought
the clothes these past two vears that I ustiallv do., I haven t had
nearlv so manv ?owns or hats ot shos as customaiy. And I can't
see but that I have been just as well dressed, just as acceptable to un
friends as I've always been."
"I haven't noticed any difference." I admitted.
"Tdidn't notice apy difference myself until I began to think
about it," she laughed. I've bad clothes enough. I know I looked
well enough when I went out. It wasn't until I began getting my sum
mer outfit that I realized how little I had really bought in the past two
vears. And then it came home to me that I have been putting lots ot
time and monev into clothes that I didn't need to. From henceforth,
the clothes proposition is going to be considerably lightened. I shall
cut out about half the botheration it used to be and so far as looks go,
nobody will know it." , ,
And So I am wondering it lots ot us aren't putting more ume ano
monev into the "clothes proposition,", as she called it, than we need
to, Suppose we cut out some of the gowns and hats and shoes and
neckwear and etceteras we usually buy. Will we be any the less ac
ceptable socially ?
Lets think about it! We mav find we may lighten one of the
burdens that weighs on us rather heavily and perhaps help others to
lighten theirs. For in the matter of fashion, we are somewhat like
sheep. We follow a leader. And no matter how strenuous the pace.
we breathlessly keep uo, thinking there is notning eise ior us io o.
nut if vum Airnver there is another way. that we are none me worse
off socially or sartorially for slackening our pace, and much better off
in other ways, isn't it worth while to know mis iaci r

For Frying-For Shortening
For Cale Making
There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the .food particlts
after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness aud consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richnessat smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
