THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, JUNE 28, 1021

v ucwr item in one of this week's papers says
lli. t the Tncoinn, Washington W. 0. T. IT.
S. ik-ty has made a ruling against gossip in
ilir club and that they are going to do every
Itnp they cau to get other clubs and social sets
o do Ihe same thing.
Hooray for the W. C. T. U! If they keep
fi it up and if they ever make a drive, as every
h ier organization we know of has done for
ca h, we are going to ruin our bank account.
More harm is done by idle, foolish gossip
ill u by any disease known to mankind.
Ki .,lly strong men and women- don't let words
...'' A by thoughtless people affect them much.
15 some people do give up worth while am
1 i ions and make fewer attempts to go for
ward because they are afraid of malicious
si. ,(ier of thoughtless, self-satisfied people or
sricastic remarks from people who couldn't
do half as well themselves.
We believe that the W. C. T. U. is doing a
gi d thing in making their drive against gos
si . It will probably do more good even than
(1 'ir work in knocking out booze. Let's or
g. aize a W. C. T. IT. out here.
"IT MUST XOT BE AO A IX"
There is in America a growing abhorrance
of war as manifested in the resentment of tax
b, vdens in which eighty cents out of every dol
la" represent military and naval expenditures,
pi'tt, present or for the future. It is express
ti in the Senate resolution for naval disarma
m iit ; in l'residcnt Ilarding's address over the
b. lies of our returned soldier dead: "It must
n' be again"; in Secretary Denby's address
at the Naval Academy, where the declarations
a; uust warfare were almost outcries. War
h: s become such a frightful thing that it is
n'olting. The picture is dreadful. Contem
'i to it. Submarine treachery, aerial poUon
si wers, propagated epidemics, infernal gas
st . involving the soldiers in the trenches and
il civilians in the village and hamlet and
c : on the farms in a common ruin. Inter
. ioual agreement can end all this, and an
ir -riiational tribunal can settle international
differences much more satisfactorily and far
less expensively than can be done by force of

THE DAXGEROUS TIME
We don't want to "knock" anybody's busi
ness. We like to see the doctor and the un
dertaker prosper just the same as anybody
else. Hut we can't help feeling that this is a
mighty good time to warn citizens of Kauai to
dodge both of them by watching the diet and
guarding against the violent rays of Old Sol.
The human system is easily disarranged dur
ing the hot months, and when it is out of order
it doesn't take much heat to bring on sickness.
We are more apt to get bold of contaminated
water in the warmer months, too. And even
one case of typhoid can cause ;m epidemic.
Care should bo taken at all times to guard
against poor sanitation, but especially should
we be careful at this season of the year. The
best way to safeguard health is to 'keep both
the body and the community clean. Let's
take no chance on an epidemic in this section,
and let's be sure, if we do run into one, that it
was not due to carelessness.
IX EARNEST XOW
After all of Germany's turning and twist
ing, it now begins to look as though she act
ually proposes to buckle down to business and
pay the war assessments imposed upon her at
the peace table. There can still be found
people, however, who are skeptical of Cler
niany's latest announcement. They argue
that she has something "up her sleeve" and
that she is only seeking to decei"e when she
declares now that she can and will pay in full
where a few weeks ago she was professing to
be on the verge of bankruptcy. Eat Germany
has decided to force her citizens by law to
drink less beer, and to put a heavier tax on
that which is consumed. So there is reason
to believe that if she has grown desperate
enough to do this the last thing any one
would expect her to do then she actually
means business, and she is going to make an
honest attempt to pay off her war debts.

causes of tire trouble
If brakes are violently applied,
tires are called upon to check
within a few yards the entire
momentum of the car.
Michelins stand up better than
other tires under such punish

of the black Michelin tread
gives these tires unequalled
wear-resistance. The extra traction-surface
of the Michelin
tread minimizes wear by distri

area. And the extra thickness
