Much Appreciated Boast
The Advertiser lias done a very
gracious thing for Kauai. The
Sunday edition, Aug. 2nd, eon
tains over.a full page and a half
of pictures and an excellent write-
up of the beauties of the Island.
Beginning with Kukuiolono
Park in which the writer, J. H.
Gray, sets forth in wonderful
word pictures the charm of the
place, and in which he gives us
real news about Mr. McBrydes
generous provision for the up
keep of the Park in ease of his
demise we are led on to .the
splendid discription of the spout
ing Horn, Olokele Canyon and
the Pun ka Pele region and Ha
The whole thing is so interest
ing that we would advise Kauai
atiH to secure extra copies of the
Advertiser to send to their Main
land friends. Nothing could be
better advertising for the Island.
Next week we hope to repro
duce the seven photographs in the
Garden Island and later, extracts
from the written material. In
the meant hue we are very grate
ful to the Advertiser for giving
us such a fascinating discription
of our natural wonders.
Your Car Will Run Smoothly
If Lubricated Correctly
Motorists seldom realize the
damage which can be done to
their cars unless the correct con
sistency of lubicating oil is used.
The hidden parts of the car, which
require the most careful lubrica
tion, are so seldom exposed to
view that the injury done to them
by an incorrect grade of oil does
not become evident until some
thing gives way. Scored cylin
ders and badly worn piston rings
are common troubles.
Correct lubrication has be
come an exact science. The Stand
ard Oil Company maintains a
Board of Lubrication Engineers
who have determined by exhaus
tive study and actual tests the
correct consistency of Zerolene
for every type of automobile en
gine. This Board is continually
at work determining the best oil
for keeping the moving parts of
the automobile engine at the
highest pitch of efficiency.
Just as the wise man goes to
his banker for advice on financial
matters or to his lawyer to
straighten out his legal difficul
ties, so the motorist who desires
the best results from his car goes
to the expert in lubrication. For
the conveniences of motorists, the
Standard Oil Company has pre
pared a correct lubrication chart
covering every type of car. These
charts show the correct consis
tency tif Zerolene oils and greases
as determined by the tests and
studies of the Board of Lubrica
tion Engineers. By following the
chart, every man can rest assured
that his automobile is correctly
lubricated, which means better
performance and longer life for
Lets Try This
One otthe automobile country
cfuns or America requests its
members to stop and brush away
glass or other harmful material
found on the roadside. They are
to carrv brushes for this verv
purpose and are asked to keep a
record of the number of times
they stop for a way-side clearing,
and to report how they think the
material came to lie there.
Not a bad idea. inaf. We know
of some people on Kauai who do
that very kindly service for the
public without belonging to any
club. Now that ihe saloon is a
thing of the past it is astonishing
how little bottle-neck glass or
other edged obstacles are to be
found. A by product of the bles
sings of prohibition.
