Why the Sands Bark
Kauai has no monopoly of Barking
Sands. They have them elsewhere In
various places, but they oall them sing
ing sands. Thsy have them in quantity
along tho chores of lake Michigan,
and a recent article in "Science" de
votes attention to them. The condi
tions there are much the same as
ours, the sand must bo dry or it will
not sing, end the drier it isVhe louder
the sing. Furthermore hot weather
seems to be essential, which may be
the reason that the Noliili Bands at
Mana give the best results.
The writer In "Science" propounds
the theory that the grains of sands
become ccated by drying with the
mineral salts contained in the lake
water, and these salts increase the
friction quality of the grains so that
they squeak or creak more just as a
door creaks that needs oil or as the
violin bow does that has had a thin
application of rosin. Rain washes
these salts off and reduces the singing
or barking efficiency.
This explanation may be satisfac
tory for the singing sands of Michigan,
but is far from conclusive for the
barking sands of Kauai.
S3 1 How to Prepare the Starches
The various starches, manifold in
number, constitute one of the basic
foods of man, and animals, as well
They are the most important con
stituents of grains and vegetables
and are present in many fruits and in
all green leaves. Most of these foods
are improved by cooking because
that process bursts the cellulose or
little wooden sacks which hold the
starch and lets it out so that it is
easier to digest. Accordingly most
starchy foods should be thoroughly
Another important point in regard
to the use of starchy food is that the
process of digestion begins in the
mouth by means of the saliva. In
order then that this process be satis
factorily completed it is necessary
that the food be thoroughly masti
catcd so that the saliva may do its
Much of the American dyspepsia
is a form of starchy indigestion. Un
intelligent cooking, and hasty "bolt
ing" of food are responsible for lots
of our digestion disorders. The more
easily soluble a food is the easier it
can be digested. Starch can be car
ried a long way on the road to di
gestion by thorough cooking.
Breakfast cereals in particular,
should be carefully and thoroughly
cooked because there is generally
very little attempt made to chew
them, and little, if any, aid is rend
ered toward digestion by the saliva
The whole grains, like wheat, corn,
millet, etc., need frorn 6 to 8 hours
cooking; those that are partly cook
ed, such as the rolled grains, most
commonly used need at least an
hour of cooking. Needless to say
they seldom get any such thorough

Nothing is ever too good for our patrons and we take
pleasure in announcing that we have secured the
agency for Kauai of the celebrated Miller Geared-to-the-Road)
Tires as well as that well-known friend of
auto owners, the Willard Battery.
In future all the regular sizes of Miller Tires will be
carried and we feel we are not making an over-slate-ment
when we claim that these tires are, without doubt,
pecularily adapted to this climate and island road con
ditions. Then again, the Willard brand on the battery is more
than a name. It's a sign of reliability, responsibility and
protection to the buyer who wants a first-class article.
Get the genuine Willard Battery with threaded rubber
insulation, and you have a battery to be proud of.
The Willard brand means a hotter spark a quicker
start brighter lights.
Come in and let us talk it over with you.
