REGAL SHOE STORE ANNOUNCEMENT
TO OUR KAUAI FRIENDS
When we opened our beautiful new store on Fort Street
we closed our books, dispensed with most of our office force,
and placed our business on a "pay as you buy" basis. By bo
doing we have been able to reduce the price of our shoes from
10 to 15 which is a direct saving to our customers.
We want our island customers to be in a position to take
advantage of Spot Cash prices,and still not be inconvenienced
by C. O. 1). method. So we have decided to fill your orders
for shoes, and send them on approval, and carry the transac
tion as a CASH ITEM in ouroffice, requesting that if the
shoes are not in every way satisfactory you return them. If
they are satisfactory keep them, and send us your check or
money order by return mail.
Our new CASH policy is meeting with splendid success,
which proves that the public are only too willing to pay
cash, when they can get first quality shoes, such as we carry,
at a reduced and reasonable price. We respectfully solicit a
continuance of your most valuable patronage.
Pay as you buy and learn thrift.
Yours very truly,
GEO. A. BROWN, Manager.
Most of us Hke to acomplish kindly
acta, and It Is a pleasure to scatter hap
plness among those we meet. But as
a rule we only do acts ot kindness to
those we actually meet and know, and
Ifew ot us realize that the suras we
give away each day in trifles would
If placed in the right hands do some
thing far finer than scatter the golden
dust of kindness: they would build up
a human life.
There are thousands upon thousands
of children many of them only little
tots whose lives are ebbing away in
the slums of Paris and all the other
large towns of France because no help
lng hand has reached them.
Many French people do not know
that Tuberculosis is a curable disease.
It is only with difficulty at first that
the poor sorrowing mothers could be
pursuaded to entrust their wasted
dying children to our care. They
thought in many cases, that it was a
forlorn hope and that they were bid
ding their little ones a last good-by,
But as time rolled on and they saw
;heir well-loved children slowly re
-gaining their health, their gratitude
was beyond expression. One woman
who was nursing her dying husband
at home wrote to her young boy "I am
very happy but the thought of you In
that beautiful home gives me
And today the word has gone far
and wide amongst the mothers that
we have power to save their children
And almost hourly the anxious mo
thers come to us, telling theiir pitiful
tale; and yet every day we are obliged
to turn many away for already the
waiting list is long and every bed is
And in deepest, heartrending sorrow
the mothers say "But surely time
means all, and we cannot bear to see
our little children die."
Nor would you allow these little
ones to die if you were there to hear
the pathos in the mother's voice or to
see tne sad longing expression on
some little girl's face.
But you are not there and it is so
hard in these short printed appeals to
bring to you in your happy American
home the tragedies ot dark courts in
the slums of far away Paris.
In our homes at Groslay and Arro
manches, or In our preventorium
amongst the pine trees of the Auvergne
each day the sunshine lingers for
hours upon the cots of children like
these na sunshine to them means life,
If you could see our convalescent,,
'.rosy and happy, their loving smiles
would be your ample reward. If you
could hear their mothers broken heart
felt words of gratitude we should not
need to plead with you tor aid.
The Chairman of the Finance Com
mittee ot the City of Paris bids us
tell our American compatriots how
great is the love France bears toward
them, how deep, the gratitude she
treasures in her heart. And he says
that your subscriptions administred by
our fund in France have saved very
many French women and children
from the terrible scourge ot tubercu
losis. He adds that to such a degree
of perfection have we brought this
American work that the City of Paris
is going to take it for its model in the
ceaseless fight it plans soon to wage
against this evil that so injures the
human race. And in conclusion he
says "If I could go about with you in
America I would proclaim everywhere
the miracle you have accomplished in
our country the benefits of which we
'leap each day."

A careful survey has recently been
been made, by competent agents, ot
seven of the large cities of the East
and the Middles West In regard to the
effects of Prohibition.
The familiar, unquestioned results
on the hard drinker, are confined.
The drunkard is practically gone. The
proof is absolute and statistical as
taken from the population reports ot
jails and alcoholic wards of hospitals;
the converting of farms for inebriates
to other uses; the closing of "gold
Bums, vagrants, drunkards, hospi
tal rounders, have dropped out of the
official records. The decrease of
crime runs from 30 to 90 per cent.
Three other conclusions have been
clearly established by this survey.
Prohibition has not increased the
use of drugs as some predicted; it has
not stimulated emigration, the ex
odus from a dry country in disgust is
hypothetical; organized labor is not
arrayed against prohibition. Expe
rience has made converts of them.
Less conclusively established, but
none the less well assured, are; a
great increase in savings bank ac
