Your WILL or the Courts
Do you know that when a person dies without leaving a Will and naming an executor, that the court appoints
some one as administrator of the estate?
Do you feel that an administrator whom the court wculc point would be one whom you would have selected
yourself had you made a Will during your lifetime?
This company has during its nineteen years of experience gained a reputation for itself throughout the Territory
for its competent and economical manner of handling estates. Correspondence invited.

The high prices of flour and
oth-jr cereals is the result of se
rious shortage in crops, tiot only
in America but the world over
The great wheat growing slates
of t;ie mainland aggregated otllv
about a two thirds crop last fall,
and give promise of even greater
shortage this coming season, be
cause of severe weather conditions,
which have destroyed the winter
wheat, and the shortage of seed
tor thtSpring planting.
Argentina has forbidden the ex
portation of wheat because of crop
failure, and consequent shortage
which is already causing much
suffering. A great deal of Rus
sia's surplus has rotted on the
ground, and there is no outlet for
any part of it that could be spared.
it Is estimated that the Europ
ean yield this coming year will be
only 75'' of the normal quantity.
The Entente Allies will need 560
million bushels, while only some
360 million wfll be available.
A Beautiful Book
Among the new books at the
Lihue Library is one of much
beauty and no little interest to us,
entitled "Reminiscences of the
South Sea," by John La Farge.
La Farge was a somewhat famous
water color artist of a coupl
decades ago, who came to these Is
lands 30 years or so ago, and after
remaining here a few weeks, de
parted for the South Sea, where
he made a somewhat leisurely tour
with an artists free and easy

artists skilful touch in depicting it.
