KENNETH C. HOPPER
FOR BETTER MAX GOES
The Honolulu Ad Club is a
most versatile and progressive
institution. Anything from pigs
to politics is in their line. Just
now it is mangoes, and perhaps
they never struck a better lead
J. E. Higgius of the U. S. Ex
periment Station lias been giving
them an object-lesson talk on the
virtues and possibilities of the
I'iri mango, which was rendered
doubly convincing by the gift of
one of the mangoes to each guest
to be eaten on the spot.
The Firi is an East Indian va
riety of most luscious qualities,
far and away ahead of any other
mango that we have here, and
well adapted to our Island condi
tions. This choicest of mangoes is
now within the easy reach of any
one who wants it. It is simply a
matter of having it grafted onto
our native stock, which can be
easily done, and in a comparative
ly short time we will the lusci
ous fruit that will take the place
of the comparatively worthless
mangoes that we now have.
There is now an abundance of
propagating material and the Ex
periment Station will furnish
scions, to Kauai and stand be
pose. There are also several men
in the business of grafting, so
that there is no reason why we
may not all have this choice
mango in our gardens and on our
We would respectfully recom
mend that the Chamber of Com
merce take the matter up and ar
range for the advent of one of
these men, with the necessary
scions free of charge for this pur
hind a grafting campaign that

there are plenty of men eager for
just such investments? Why does
he have to come way down here to
dispose of such a bonanza?
We have, right here at honief
some of the most lucrative in
vestments in the whole country,
and they are at the same 'time
perfectly sound and safe. And
they are tangible and visible and
reliable enterprises; let us stick
by them and let these strange
gods of speculative and uncer
tain stock alone.
GOOD ADVICE FREE
We command to all our readers
not alone the homesteaders the
timely warnin'g emphasized in an
other column against making far
away investments in something
that you know absolutely nothing
Fight shy of the rare and unna
tural philanthrophy of the man
who comes all the way down from
the Coast to let you in on some
gilt-edged bonanza that he has
found up there for a considera
tion. Ask yourself the simple
question why he should come all
this distance to hunt you up and
give you this phenominal chance.
If it is such a marvellously good
thing why doesn't he dispose of it
in his own home maiket, whersi
HERE'S TO THE HOME
One of the marvels, and one of
the disappointments, of visitors
from abroad, is that we have so
little fruit of our own, at least
in daily use, and are so depen
dent on that which conies from
The expectation of such a visi
tor is, that he is coming t6 the
land of fruit and flowers, and to
things strange and new.
And as far as the fruit goes he
is pretty much doomed to disap
pointment. When he asks for
fruit he is given the old familiar
Mainland product, apples, pears,
peaches, plums and apricots;
much the worse for transporta
tion, perhaps and at best the
same old thing that he has al
For the benefit of the visitor,
but much more for our own bene
fit, we ought to "lay ourselves
out" to produce and cultivate the
rarer and choicer varieties of
tropical fruits which we can
raise, and the Mainland cannot
We ought to specialize on these
things for our own satisfaction
and enjoyment, to say nothing of
our reputation abroad.
We have done this in a meas
ure in the Hibiscus culture, whv
should we not do the same in re
gard to the banana, the mango,
the cbiriinoya, the avocado, the
Why should we tag along in a
losing race behind the Mainland,
when we might be far iu the lead
in a race of our own?
Gasoline Boiling Points
' Tell the Story
, Contrary to the opinion held
by a great many people, the real
value of gasoline is not shown by
the old-fashioned gravity test.
This test tells nothing about the
vaporizing and conibustive quah
ties of the fuel, as has been point
ed out by the National Bureau of
Standards at Washington. Only
the boiliug point test is really efficient.
Boiling points, of course, mean
exactly what the words say. That
is, they are points on the ther
mometer at which a liquid will
begin to boil. The reason why
boiling points are the test of good
gasoline would seem to be puz
zling. A little thought, however,
will make it plain. For a cold
engine to start quickly the gaso
line must vaporize at ii low tern
perature. This vaporization point
is, of course, the same as the boil
ing point. To get quick and
smooth acceleration somewhat
higher boiling points are neces
sary and for full power and long
mileage the fuel must have still
lugiier hoiling points.
Real high quality gasoline must
have a complete and continuous
from the low to the Inch. Corn-
chain of boiling points, ranging
bust ion starts with the lowest
and flashes on through the uni
form cnain from low to high with
tlie result that there is full-pow
eretl, instantaneous combustion.
Eliminate one link and the full
power chain is broken. The fam
ous Red Crown easoline is
straight-distilled, all-refinery fuel
which has this complete chain of
boiling points so that its use
means easy starting, quick and
smooth acceleration, dependable
power and long mileage.
