For Frying-For Shortening
For Cake 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 particles
after each frying.
Crisco gives pnstrv a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and 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.

which was passed to the records
without reading, contained numer

of local interest. The closing, para

up on Kauai, in these words:
"Now for another big hole in
our county framework. In the
midst of the heated discussion and
debate that preceded the passing
of the county act, everybody com
pletely forgot the citizen. You
have seen those clever and mirth
provoking cartoons that picture
"Mr. Common People" and his
trials and vicissitudes in the shad
ow of politics and big business.
That seems to have been just abaut
the figure that we cut in the eves
of the framers of the act. Our

the shape of a quarterly statement
from the auditor's office showing
his receipts and disbursements for
the past period. The citizen is
no, very much wiser when he has
read this statement, but it is better
than nothing at all Subject your
self to a rigid self examination of
vour actual knowledge of the facts
of your municipal government and
you will be astounded to find how
little it amounts to. Then think
again and reflect that within this
sum total, small as it is, lies your
opportunity for effective citizen
ship. I picked up a paper this
morning, however, that contains a
statement that is a joyous shock,
It says that Kauai has taken its
citizens within the chaimed circle,
and is actually telling them what
it is doing by issuing published re
ports. This is splendid. Here is
one county in the Territory that
does not have to be pushed and
prodded by mandatory statute into
doing the thing that is right, but
has the wit and wisdom to amend
the defects in the county act by
refusing to read into its text pro
hibitions which are not there. All
honor to Kauai. Who is going to
be next? Speak up, Hawaii dele
gation. You do not ahvavs have
to be last. God helps the county
that helps itself, and has the man
hood to make its own reforms, and
the intelligence to keep its own
house clean without outside assist
ance. If this is what Kauai stands
for, then Rood for Kauai. This
convention is glad to meet you,

would be safe from vandal hands

short time after it was constructed
floor, furniture, door and even
window casings were burned by
persons too lazy to cairy up their

walls and iron roof remained, and
the wanton destroyers did their
best to render the latter useless by
shooting it full of holes. Perhaps
the people on Hawaii are different
from thoe on Maui, but there's
always a chance a Miui vandal
might happen ovei there. So it
would be better to take no chances,
