It is gratifying to learn -that the
New York sugar experts pay tribute
to the efforts of the Hawaiian planta
tions In meeting the shortage of ferti
lizer, Kauai especially beins mention
ed. "Sugar," in its July issue has the
following to report thereon:
"Increasing shortage of nitrates
In order to meet the situation several
plantations are making use of sub
stitutes as tankage, dried blood, etc.
Some companies have even gone
so far as to secure potash from mo
lasses by burning the molasses In
Dutch oven furnaces. This process is
now in vogue at the plants of the Ma
kee Sugar Co. and Hawaiian Sugar
Co.By this process one pound of
ash is secured from ten pounds of
molasses, the ash yielding 30 to 40
percent of potash"
Grove Farm has recently establash
ed a similar molasses burning plant.
After it's attention was called to
several needful amendments to the
present ordinance relative to automo
biles, the Supervisors instructed it's
Clerk to obtain data from other coun
ties and States, with the view of draft
ing suitable laws. Nearly four
months have now elapsed and no re
cord appears of any further move
having been made. ' We suggest that
the honorable board "get bulsy" as
the end of the year is fast approach
ing, and it would certainly seem ap
pearent that the new laws, if any,
should be compiled and in force be
fore the coming taxation period. Who
is responsible for the delay?
A MESSAGE FROM SCOTLAND
The other day there came to the
Food Administration some little notes
from boys and girls in Scotland. They
wrote to "render thanks," as they said
for the help America has given in the
war. The letters sound Just as it
American children had written them.
They tell about the same things to eat
that our boys and girls enjoy here.
They Beem just like the children ac
ross the Btreet, instead of across the
William Falconer writes: "We, the
children of Scotland, beg to thank the
people of America for becoming an
ally of Creat Britain. If your ships
did not bring us supplies of food we
would be ere now, starving. Although
most kinds of foodstuffs are rationed,
we still get plenty to keep us fit and
healthy. We praise your brave sailors
for defying the danger of enemy sub
marines, to bring us wheat, sugar, and
suchlike foodstuffs, which we cannot
Another little boy of Aberdeen says,
"Much of our food has been rationed
and yet we we cannot grumble, for we
still receive the necessities ' of life.
The men of America, and the nurs
es are always cheery and' bright, and
we are charmed to see them in our
These letters show how very close
is the relation between the food we
save in America and the size of the
rations the children in England and
Scotland. When we save sugar, and
eat vegetables Instead of wheat bread,
and use milk and cheese, fish and
eggs in place of meat; we are leaving
for those children the food that can be
shipped to them.
Perhaps, if we really economize to
the utmost in the way outlined by the
Food Administration, those Scotch
children will be able to thank America
for a truly generous ration. Perhaps
there may be butter and jam for Sun
day in the village of Stonyburn by
Fauldhouse. For little Nellie Arm
strong, who lives there wrote, "I miss
all my puddings and nice sweet meats,
but we can live without them and I
will economize as much as possible.
When Saturday or Sunday comes, our
sugar, butter, and jam are finished and
we must wait till Monday before we
receive our rations. It is a hard time,
but if we mean to win this war we I
must take what comes, as long as it
helps to shorten the war."
We agree with Nellie.

Examine the leaves carefully to be
sure there are no insects on them;
wash thoroughly in several waters,
put In a saucepan and allow to heat
gradually. Boil rapidly for about
thirty minutes or until tender, chop
well and season with butter and salt.
Cut off the roots; break the leaves
apart; drop them in a large pan of
water; rinse well; lift them out sep
arately and drop back into a second
pan of water. Continue washing in
fresh waters until there is not a grain
of sand to be found in the bottom of
the pan. Place in saucepan and allow
to heat gradually. Let it boil for 20
minutes or more, counting from the
time it begins to boil, and drawing the
cover of the saucepan to one side to
allow the steam to escape. Mince

On . May 2 the First Liberty Loan
was announced, on May 14 the details
were made public, and on the IFith
the campaign began and closed one
month later. The issue was for
2,000,000,000, the bonds bearing
percent interest and running
15-30 years. The bonds carried
conversion privilege, entitling
holder. If he chose, to convert them
into bonds of a later issue bearing a
higher rate of interest. Four and a
half million subscribers from every
section of the country, representing
every condition, race, and class of
citizens, subscribed for more than
$3,000,000,000 of the bonds.- Only
$2,000,000,000 was allotted.
The outstanding features of the
First Liberty Loan -were the prompt
ness with which it was arranged and
conducted, the patriotism of the news
papers, bunks, corporations, organiza
tions, and people generally in working
for its success, and the heavy over
subscription of more than 50 per cent

unprecedented demand upon its money
The Second Liberty Loan campaign
opened on October 1, 1917, and closed
on October 27. The bonds of this
issue bear 4 per cent interest and run
for 10-15 years. They carry the con
version privilege. It was announced
that 50 per cent of the oversubscrip
tion would be taken. Nine million
subscribers subscribed to $4,017,532,000
of the bonds, an oversubscription of 54
per cent. Only $3,808,760,150 of the
bonds was allotted.
This campaign was marked with the
same enthusiastic supimrt of the pub
lic as its predecessor. The labor and
fraternal organizations were espe
cially active in this campaign, and the
women of the country did ellicient
organized work which greatly con
tributed to the success of the loan.

The Third Liberty Loan campaign
opened on April 0, WIS, one year ex
actly after our entrance into the war,
and closed on May 4. The bonds of
this issue bear 4',i per cent interest
and run for 10 years, are not subject
to redemption prior to maturity, and
carry no canvcrsion privilege. The
loan was announced for $3.l)il0.0il0,0iM),
but the rinlil was reserved to accept
all additional subscriptions. Seven
teen million subscribers subscribed for
$4,170,019,650 of the bonds, all of
which was allotted.
A great feature of this loan was
Its very wide distribution among the
people and throughout the Union and
the fact that the country districts
promptly and heavily subscribed to the
loan, In a great measure making up
their quotas earlier that the cities.
Secretary McAdoo pronounced this
loan the soundest of national financ
A little over a year ago there .was
some 300,000 United States bondhold
ers; there are now somewhere between
20,000,000 and 25,000,000. Awagened
patriotism has made the American
people a saving people, a bond-buying
people. The effect of the Liberty
Loans on the national character, on
our national life, on the individual
citizen and our home life is immeas
urable of incalculable benefit. Not
less incalculable is their effect on the
destiny of the world as our ships plow
the seas and our men and material in
Europe beat back the Hun.
The Fourth Liberty Loan campaign
will begin Saturday, September .28,
and close October 19. No American
will fail to contribute to its success.
The blood of our men fallen in Europe

"What are gasoline
The boiling point of any liquid is. the temper
ature at which it vaporizes.
Gasoline has boiling points ranging from the
very low to the high, and in "Red Crown" they;
form a uniform, continuous, unbroken chain.
The value of gasoline lies in this uniform con
tinuity of its boiling points.
Combustion Etarts with the lowest boiling
points and flashes on through the gas. The
continuous chain of boiling points from the
'ow to the high is necessary for instantane
ous, full-powered combustion. Eliminate one
link and the power chain is broken.
Only a Btraight-distilled, all-refinery gasoline can
have the continuous chain of boiling points. Mix
tures always have "holes" in them.
Red Crown, the Gasoline of Quality, is a straight
distilled, all-refinery fuel having the full and complete
chain of boiling points necessary for steady, depend
able power: Low boiling points for easy starting,
medium boiling points for quick and smooth acceler
ation, and high boiling points for power and mileage.
Look for the Red Crowo sign before you fill.
