Cut Out Waste And Extravagance
One of the lessons that we will assuredly liavo to learn, as part of
our war oilueation, is reasonable economy; economy in t In matter of
waste and useless extravagance. In England, we understand, joy riding
is ruled out; there is no gasoline for it. There is gasoline for necessity,
hut none for luxury. We may not come to that, hut assuredly we will
come to shortage and high prices of many staple articles.
Every pound of food that is wasted, whether by' criminal extrava
gance, or in cooking, or in entertaining, means just that much less avail
able food supply with which to meet the needs of the community, a con
sequent increase of price, and consequent suffering on the part of those
who cannot meet the price.
There is, as yet, no need to go utterly into social hibernation, or to
swear off entirely from all social pleasures, but it will be in order, from
now on, to lead the simple life in social matters, to entertain modestly,
to nrovide tcnitx-rately, to live quietly, and not to waste, in idle extra-
trance, or ostentatious display, what may be needed to keep a score of
families from suffering. Such extravagance is not only wasteful, it i
personally injurious, it ruins the digestion and upsets the system.
A similar modesty in dress may well be commended to the ladies;
most of them will be just as charming and just as attractive in the simp
ler gowns that moderate economy may suggest. We understand that on
the (.'oast they have come to this, and are making over last year's dresses
and n trimming last year's hats.
Let us retrench, however, on the extravagancies, and not on the
philanthropies and charities of life. Too often, on the slightest foie
shadowing of hard times, these very best of inteiests are smitten with a
black frost, though the extravagances of life retain the fulness of their

$318,000 Gone To Pot
The Tax Department hands us official figures which show that the
aggregate sales of liquor through the wholesale channels on the Island
of Kauai during the year 15(1(1 reached the unprecedented sum of
S318,2S7.20, being an increase of $3S,078 over 1915.
Presuinbably this does not cover the actual expenditure, since im
portations from Honolulu are not included, and sundry blind pig trans
actions, with large profits, are forgotten. But let us take it at this
If Kauai had put this" $318,000 of the hard earnings of the people
alnard of an Inter Island steamer and carried it out to sea, and there
dumped it overboard into the Ixittomless depths, how our good people
would have stormed at the folly of it, and how our neighbors on the
other Islands would have jeered at us and lu'ld us up to scorn.
But we have done infinitely worse than that; we have spent our
8818, (XX) ruining ourselves; knocking out the brains of our citizens;
wrecking tlie happiness of our homes; making criminals and idiots of
our men and women, and orphans and imbeciles of our children. The
very fact that we put up with such folly is proof that already it h:is
touched us," as a people, in the upper story.
Oh! yes, we had almost forgotten the revenue which the public
derives from the nefarious business.
When a foot pad holds you up and relieves you of all that you've
got, if you are very civil and he is a "gentlemen," he hands you hack a
nickel to pay your ear fare home! And you tip your hat to him and
herald him abroad far and wide as a public, benefactor. "So generous!
So public spirited! I don't see how we could get along without him!''
