A New Departure
The Community Christmas Tree will be something quite out of the
ordinary line; and the plans are now so well in hand as to insure an
undoubted success. A large natural tree, brilliantly lighted and beauti
fully decorated, and choral singing pf Christmas carols and hymns; these
will be the essential factors; but there, will be many interesting and sur
prising details. .
There will be fine choruses by the Hawaiian choir; similar render
ings from the Ilaole choir; motion songs from the little Japanese tots in
their kimono costumes; illustrated carols set forth in living picture illus
trations done by the little children of the Lihue Union Sunday School;
some very characteristic Filipino children's singing, etc. etc. together
with some really inspiring mass singing. , All at the armory 'Sunday
evening. Dec. 23 and all free. A voluntary contribution will be taken
for the Red Cross.
The sugar used for making candy in the United States according to
the best information that could be obtained by the United States. Food
Administration, is sufficient to meet all the sugar requirements of Eng
land under the rationing standard adopted there.
If the people of the United States would cut out the eating of candy,
the sugar so saved would be more than sufficient to meet all the sugar
requirements of France.
If one-half the sugar used in the making of candy m this country in
1917 could have been saved, it would have been sufficient to meet the
sugar requirements of Italy for a year under that country's Drescnt sugar
The money spent for candy in the United States in the past year it
nearly double the amount of money needed to keep .Belgium supplied
with food for a year.
Of the total-sugar consumption of the United States, according to
the best estimates obtainable, about one-third goes into the manufactur
ing of various foodstuffs, including confectionery, while the remainder
is consumed as sugar. The amount of sugar employed in the making of
confectionery is variously estimated from 150,000 to 500,000 tons per
year. There has been compiled no absolutely accurate date from which
the exact amount may be determined, but a conservative estimate would
place this at somewhere about 400,000 tons per annum. .
The confectionery business of the country, measured by the value
of its product is about two-thirds as large as the butter business ; a little
less than one-third as large as the wheat flour business; slightly larger
than the canning and preserving of fruits; and about two-fifths as large
as the bakery business.
Many persoas when asked to sign the card pledging themselves to
follow out the directions and advice of the United States Food Adminis
tration in tne matter oi ioou use, nave raised tne question oi why it is
that corn, potato, flour and other food stuffs which the Food Adminis
trator asks them to substitute for wheat, are not shipped to the allies so
that they may make the substitution, thereby making it unnecessary for
the American people to cut down on their wheat consumption. The
answer to this objection is contained in a statement issued by the United
States Food Administration, which calls attention to the fact that Euro
pean nations are already using from 20 to 50 per cent of corn, potato
and the other adulterants in the manufacture of their daily bread. The
British government requires a 20 per cent adulteratian in all wheat
bread and will permit a maximum of 50 percent. Adulteration beyond
50 per' cent it has been found, does not make a healthful loaf.
In the case of corn, it is pointed out that this- commodity in the
form of meal cannot be shipped because it would spoil in transit. As to
the whole grain there is the objection that the people on the other side
have no mills in which to grind it Furthermore, cornbrcad cannot be
baked successfuly in bakeries, on which European people depend almost
exclusively for their bread. In addition it does not keep well, and with
, the dearth of paper in Europe, it would be difficult for purchasers to
carry it home.
Good Film Yarn
By Basil King
"The Inner Shrine," which will
open at the Tip Top theatre, to
morrow night, is a photo play of
unusual character. It is a drama
tization of Basil King's celebrated
.novel portrayed with Margaret
Illington as the heroine. A tan
gled loye story with its characters
drawn from the socially elect, the
course of events in the story car
ried the spectator into scenes laid
in New York, London and Paris.
Diane Wtnthrop, a wealthy
young American girl, played by
Miis Illington, is the ward of
Derek Pruyn, an exployer and
student, who loves her, but believes
he is too old to ask for her hand.
Out of a hasty marriage that Diane
makes with a titled Frenchman
grows a train of gripping incidents
which reach a tragic climax.
Through the story Derek's love
for the girl shines like a clear
flame and all ends well when he is
brought back from the upper
reaches of the Amazon whither he
has gone to forget Diane.

Pineapples In Hawaii
The Pineapple Plantations of Ha
waii contain an aggregate area of
2L000 acres, the largest plantations,
as every one knows, being on Oahu.
The business has grown up almost
entirely since 1901 and has reached
proportions that few people realize.
It is said that the average total
pack of all kinds in California, the
greatest. Fruit section in the world,
for the last 10 years.was only about
one third more than the pack of
Hawaiian pines alone for the year
1914. The annual export Jroni
Hawaii amounts to over six million
dollars a year.
As a result of the scarity of
leather, ten thousand shark skins.
it is said, were recently brought
from Cuba to New York, to be used
in making cheap shoes.
Red Cross Organization
A world-wide campaign to or
ganize in the American Red Cross
the thousands of Americans living
outside the United States proper is
to be inaugurated through the crea
tion of an Insular and Foreign
Otis II. Cutler, a prominent New
York business man, will be manager
of this new division. He will have
his offices in Washington and will
serve, for the war, without remu
neration. The American Red Cross tins
seven chapters in Alaska, two in
Hawaii, andne each in the Philip
pines, Canal Zon, Porto Rico, Cuba,
Peru, England, Guam, Uruguay,
Persia, and Syria. Under Mr. Cut
ler's direction, additional chapters
will be organized in these and other
'Many of these foreign chapters
have been particularly active. The
roll of the London chapters contains
many names of national promi
nence. This chapter has been
especially serviceable in connection
with Red Cross units stopping ' in
London en route to France. The
Cuban chapter is raising a million
dollars to equip a base hospital for
service in France. Hawaii has an
unusually large membership, and
the Honolulu chapter has raised
more than 830,000. A number of
Americans in Shanghai are organiz
ing a chapter. They recently raised
$3,000 to buy material for surgical
dressings and hospital supplies.
