A NEW WHEAT SUBSTITUTE
Kapaia Store has originated a very
excellent new meal or flour which
promises to find favor as a breakfast
serial and as a bread and pastry sub
stitute for wheat flour. It is made
from Egyptian corn or millet, a grain
akin to lorn which comes originally
from India and Northern Africa, and
which is largely used in many coun
tries as a staple article of food. The
grain is much smaller than corn, like
a very small pea, pearly gray, and
much more readily convertible into
meal or flour than corn.
We would recommend our readers
to try it; if their taste tallies with
ours they will find It delicious. At
present the supply comes from the
Coast, but there is no reason why we
might not raise it ourselves it grows
readily and does particularly well in
tropical countries such as ours.

Somewhere in France,
Dec. 25, 1917.
Dear George: We are billeted in a
little French village near eonugh to
the front to have to observe the usual
precautions regarding aeroplane raids,

Sam contrived to do it in this out , of
the way corner of the world.
No one will ever know how much
these people have suffered over here
and we are their only hope. We can
only pray that we are not too late. It
will be an unthinkable tragedy if all
their sacrifices are in vain. I hope the
folks back home will shake a leg and
keep up the good work they seem to
be doing according to the meagre
press reports we get. It seems
strange to come to a place where it is
absolutely impossible to obtain the
things we have always regarded as
necessities. We are off in the country,
yet we never get milk or eggs. You
Can't buy them at any price.
You have doubtless seen cartoons
showing a man wearing a small lump
of coal in place of a diamond shirt
stud, or putting an egg in the safe de

conditions in reality. At one place
I was billited with a woman over
seventy years old, there was a little
lump of coal which reposed on a shelf
in front of the stove. She burned
twigs and looked at the coal to keep
warm. One day she dug down behind
some papers in a cupboard and pulled
out an egg, which she showed me
with all the pride in possessing a
diamond necklace. She said she was

In the bottoms of the coffee cups in
the United States would be a Godsend
to us all over here. Food is so scarce
that even the sale of it is regulated,
and takes place only at certain
hours. I cannot make too strong an
appeal to those at home to conserve
food and thus help out in the United
States. It is not necessary to cut
yourselves short. If the American
people will merely plan so that not a
crumb is wasted, it will help an un
told amount, I am sure. Do tell peo
ple, when they talk of wanting to help,
that they can help very materially by
seeing to it that each one personally
does not waste any food, and if each
will only do his or her bit the effort
will soon be felt over here."

the suffering among the children. Of
course our boys did what they could
for them on Christmas day. They
would not have been true Americans
if they hadn't. And equally, of course,
we must do all we can for all the child

Hawaii's First Auto Show
llonolulu, April 15 Plans will be
poifected within the next week by
llonolulu dealers for Hawaii's First
Automobile Show, to take place in
conjunction with the Territorial Fair,
Jufle 10 to 15. A committee was ap
pointed this week representing all deal
ers in motor cars, accessories, motor
cycles and oils and greases, to prepare
plans and determine the slzeand ar
rangements which, will be required.
The Automobile Show will be held
at Kapiolanl Park, within the Fair
grounds, under canvas provided by
the Fair Commission through teh
.courtesy of the Army. The firms
have been advised that several Army
chaplain's large wall tents are avail
able, these to be placed together in
form most suitable for the big display.

Four gear ratios are available. All high-class cars are equipped with
four-speed transmission. Manufacturers know that a less number of speeds
will not cover all running and load requirements. If you put on your Ford
