to tin boyhood of t lit American Nation to en

It is a direct appeal to every boy of the
real American type: red id led. full of initia
tive and resource, determined of purpose and
actuated by the same spirit U loyalty to the
Flag ami aims of the nation in the war against
despotism and brutality, as predominates to
day in the heart of every man worthy of the
name of citizen.
The boyhood of the Nation ! It is a mighty
army of the future defenders of our land
slm;,hl the need ever arie. for the boy of today
isi!.e lighting man and the hero of tomorrow,
ami though it has been impossible to accede
to the wishes of the millions of buys who wish
to take part in the present struggle, by send
ing them to the training camps and overseas
the militaristic spirit pervading every school
and every college is a clear indication of their
willingness to go forth and do their bit,
should it ever become necessary to call upon
And herein is a proof of the might of the
American people, for the vast hordes pouring
towards the battle lines in Trance and Italy
are composed of grown men in the prime of
life and vigor. Not for Germany will be the
spectacle; of prisoners yet in their early teens,
dazed and bewildered, with nerves wrecked
and stunned by the hellish shell-lire and horror
of the trenches. Probably one of the most
pitiable of the many sights to be faced and
endured upon the front lines today, is tlie sight
of lung lines of those unhappy boys stretching
into our lines as prisoners of war. ruthlessly
rushed into the forefront of the battle by their
rmli less (ieiinan masters, too young even to
realize what they are fighting for, but with
minds obsessed by the terrible stories of the
cruelties they may expect should they ever
surrender. Brought up. even from earliest
childhood in tin? doctrine that every decent
minded man is an enemy of their Fatherland,
it is small wonder that terrible stories of the
enormously increasing number of suicides
among the young boys filter through to us, and .
wring our hearts with the horror of ihe War
Lord of (lerinany.
America now calls upon her boyhood to
do its part by pledging its energies in aid of
the campaign of next month. In this move
ment the Territory will have the honor of
sharing to the full, and we have little doubt
that Ihe badge of honor to be worn by everv
boy who enlists in the army of welfare helpers,
will soon be one of the most familiar objects
to be seen in our streets. It is an opportunity
every true American boy will welcome, and he
may be relied upon to carry out the pledge he
will lie asked to make, to its fullest extent.
ATTENTION is called to the notice print
ed elsewhere requiring all grocers to post
conspicuously in their stores a price list of
their stable commodities for sale.
In spile of the slight inconvenience invol
ved, we believe I lu I all patriotic and fair mind
el grocers will welcome this chance to show
that they are doing the right thing ami are
eontenl with a re-.'souahV pi-oiit. Farlhci more
we believe that most, if not all of our grocers
on Katui belong to this class, and so will not
object in tin- least. And if there are any who
are not in this, class, this ordinance will verv
properly just I'm them.
I'llRSOXAL LETTERS FOR Til E HOYS
' rT",HE 1J lulu Rotary Club is inaugnrat-
X ing a campaign (if Christmas letter writ
ing to the boys in service anywhere away from
home." to the end that if possible every one
may receive at least one such letter.
To this end two requests are made. First:
All who know the address of any soldier the
number of his company, the number of his regi
ment, ihe arm of his service, etc are requested
to forward the same to Raymond C. Drown.
Dox I'll'. Honolulu.
Second: That all who can shall write
personal letters of Christmas cheer and en
couragement, so that every known individual
ofiiccr, soldier or sailor from the Territory of
Hawaii now in service away from home may
It is proposed to have a definite letter
writing day appointed fof this purpose which
will probably be S-'anday, Nov. 10th.
It is not quite clear just what the plan is,
but it would seem t i be. that lists of names and
addresses will be printed in the papers, and
that individuals si all pick out of these names
such as they will write to.
We commend this as a very simple and
easily feasible service to our boys in the field,
whether at home or abroad.

As the result, apparently of careful con
sideration it has been determined that one day

It is not clear whether this clean up policy
is to be extended to the other Islands, but it
would seem to us. in view of the probable ad
vent to our Island of the dreaded Spanish In
tlucnxa, that it would be a good thing for us to
inaugurate a clean up campaign here. Good
ness knows there are places in our midst, in
plantation camps, and Incipient slums. Orient
al and otherwise, that need cleaning up. The
impressive injunction against the dread disease
is "keep clean ."'
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound
of cure, and one of the best ways to secure this
ounce of prevention is to clean up our unclean

The incredulity of the public in

Hospital Farm, consequent on many
months of no returns, is gradually

The proof of Hie pudding is in the
eating, ami of late the farm has been
turning out some very line produce.
A visit to the place reveals the fact
that a great deal of good W01I4. has
been done, and that there is really a
large arei under cultivation, ami in
excellent condition but it does not
happen to be where it can be seen ami
appreciated iiinn the road. There are
title lields of corn, or two or three
different varieties, which give promise
of line crops in a few weeks. There
are luscious tomatoes, in quantity,
rotting on Ihe vines, the supply ex
ceeding the demand. There are
hell peppers, and onions, and Swiss
chard, and celery ready for market,
and peas and potatoes and other
things glowing; and every thing of
the finest variety and in generous
quantity to supply the needs not only
of the hospital, but with a liberal
overflow for sale to the' public. Most,
if not all, of this produce should go
to the credit of the late manager, Mr.
Clark whose .output it really is, and
who perhaps has not been (lone ade
