Tho following from tho Red Cross
Magazine is of much local interest
Tho editorial correspondence of
tho magazine is so large and inter
csting, coming from nil parts of
the world, that one realizes how
quickly tho magazine is making it
way. In the September issuo Geo
Madden Martin told how tho note
of a poor Belgian refugee to her
husband in the trenches had travel
I'd thousands of miles, touching the
hearts of the people wherever
went and bringing back a store of
comforts for the Belgians. This
story was called, "The Completed
Circle " but a hotter title would
have been The Ever-Widening
Circle," for, as a pebble is thrown
into the water, so has this circle
The author has had scores of let-
tern of cheer for the Belgians. Per
haps the most touching, though,
came from far off Hawaii. Hero is

How It Pays To Advertise
In the November issue of The
Red Cross Magazine, Mr. Walter A.
Dyer wrote of the great work of the
Red Cross dogs in war, how they
hrftl come to be a recognized branch
of the service and the need of them
in America. Within a week no few
er than seyen dogs ranging from
German police dogs to cocker spani
els were at our disposal. At the
end of the second week later, the
National Headquarters informed us
that the dog situation was becoming
serious and to stop the avalanche of
dogs before they were snowed un
der. So word had to be hastily
sent the chapters.
"No dogs need apply" but even
now, and then an occasional one
comes wandering in.
Those who heard and enjoyed
Miss Bishop's private lectures re

Tho organ recently installed In tho

of tho Mauua Loa last Friday after

away points journeyed all tho way to

expense by taking the Mauna Loa at

measure it is misleading. Probably
tho largest publicity was not given to

windward side of the Island learned of

An intelligent and discriminating
theater goer complains vigorously to

ness It Is violent and stormy, whereas
during some boisterous affair like the
bombardment of a fort or rushing the
trenches, it is soft and delicate.
Surely theso things ought not so to be.

tents of considerable value. I under
