Do We Love Our Country ?
During this war Great Britain has already created two largo
loans of 5,000,000.000 each, and for the last one. subscriptions
were received from about 8,000,000 different buyers.
The French people aro known as the greatest government
bond buyers in tno world.
Fifty years ago wo raised over 83,000,000,000 to provido for
tho expenses of the Civil War. Tho wealth of this country today
is oight times a3 great as it was then ; our banking resources aro
twenty times as great as then or even as lato as 1870.
Soon after the beginning of tho Spanish-American War our
Government offered for sale $200,000,000 of 3 bonds, which
were over-subscribed iVi times. This was equivalent to subscrip
tions totaling abbut 81,400,000,000.
Can it bo that wc love and appreciate our country to a less
degree than England or France? Is it conceivcablo that we have
lost our enthusiasm for our Government's ideals since 18G4, or
oven since 189S ?.
It is estimated by tho Controller of Currency that there aro
now more than 1J3,000 individuals and corporations in the United
.States in .1 position to subsWibo from 100 to 8100,000,000 to tho
Liberty Loan. Tliero are fully a hundred times that many who
aro able to buy a S50 bond on easy terms.
You are one of these individuals. Subscribe today for
the Liberty Loan at your bank or with your employer.

Miss Whitehead, who has been in

less.stay there as long as tho money

that much of the small cash has al
ready changed ownership. Waimea
was favored first with tho merry-go-
round. We trust that Lihuo chil

Children Learn About
Bugs and Insects
Mr. A. H. Case, in conjunction
with Mr. Creovcy, is conducting
campaign of instruction in the pub
lic schools of tho Island in regard to
destructive insects and pests.
Beginning with Maim they have
made the comploto circuit of the
Island. The talks have been given
to the uppei gradcsasarule, though
in somo cases where the interest
seemed to warrant the lower grades
were also included to some extent;
of course in simple language and
with specimens showing the insects
and their destructive activity by
way of illustration, fins mstruc
tion, however, whilcsimpleand rudi
mentary is immediately practical
An insect we arc told has six lees:
that marks him off from everything
else so that you can always tell
him. "Now tell mc somo insect
that you know." This is pretty
suro to bring out some interesting
responses that are original, but wide
of tho mark. A rat, a centipede,
a lizzard ; but tho leg test straight
ens them up.
A specimen of cane borer is shown
and his depredations aro described;
the insect that destroys the cocoa
nut leaf; the ono that eats sweet
potato vines; the one that bores the
algeroba tree, and another that
preys on the monkey pod; all these
are briefly described and specimens
shown of the insects themselves
and of their'activily.
ml 1 1 q
1110 parasite is described next as
an insect that lives on another one,
and examples arc shown of su'i
parasites preying on their fellows in
various ways; rsow will some one
givo me an instance of a parasite so
that 1 may know that you under
stand." After a brown-study silenco
one boy pipes up "A cannibal; he
lives on other people."
Now, whenever you see one of
these bad insects you want to kill it
so that it won't go on eating up
your gardens. But there are other
ways by which nature herself kills
off these bad insects, and she does
that very effectively by means of
these parasites that sting and poison
and kill them.
Besides this we have ways by
which we can fight against these
bad insects on.a large scale. Some
of these insects eat tho leaves or the
body of the plant and wo caii fix
them by spraying tho leaves with a
poison that lays them out.
But there are others that bore
down into the heart of tho plant
and suck the juice out. So we have
to get them another way. These
insects breathe through fine little
holes all over their bodies; so we
try to plug up theso holes so that
they can't breathe. Wo do that
by spraying them all over with a
solution that chokes them up.
Mow, there is a special reason'at
this timo why we want to kill these
insects, or at least stop them from
eating up our gardens. Wo went
moro than ever to get all the stuff
ourselves so that there will be more
food for our soldiers. The moro
that anybody raises the moro there
will bo in the, country and that
means the more there will bo for
