THY Tills oxa:
Did you ever go 1o a Kauai merchant
anil ask him to give you a quotation n i
or a !o0 order of iiifrcliMndise? Try it
once. It is a hundred to one that you will
get concessions that will surprise you. I u t
do it, understand, just as you would send
your money to a mail-order house. The chauc
es arc that your local merchant if ollimes
handicapped in purchasing power by the
fact that he has all his money tied up in giv
ing credit to the people that will come in his
place, order ;i week's supply on credit and
when the wages come in at the end of the
month send the hulk of it to the mail order
house. When an order is sent to one of them
it is always for a quantity of goods not one
little purchase. So. if you want to ho fair,
if you want to actually test the local mer
chant's prices, ask him for quotations on
quantity pit rchase. Vou will find you can
do better right here at home.
The trouble with auto drivers who read
about accidents to other people, they do not
look on these accidents as lessons they should
apply to themselves. You talk to the auto
drivers of Kauai and in almost every case
they appear to believe ihey are immune from
the mishaps they read about. It's different
for a man to see himself in the same predica
ment as another. To the average person a
narrow escape from accident is only an inci
dent. It usually brings no concern about the
possibility of something of the same kind
occurring again, with more serious results.
One cannot always be lucky. Something is
sure to happen if carelessness is indulged in.
It is just as easy to be careful as it is to be
careless, and il is a lot healthier and far
less expensive. Sizing it up and preaching as
strong a sermon as we know how to preach,
we put it in these words: "Play Safe'.''
the United States should follow the same
course, and cancel the debts England owes
us. It is a soil of chain affair. England for
gives France, we forgive England. But the
joke is that there is no one to forgive us.
We'd be left holding the hot potato. We tent
Europe money, and it came out of liberty
bonds. A lot of these bonds are held right
here in Kauai. And when these bonds ma
ture we are going to have to pay them if
England does not. Which means that citi
zens of this community of every community
in the United States for that matter are not
apt to applaud any proposition that carries
debt canceling with it. We furnish money to
prosecute the war and we sent over enough
men to win it. Now we are entitled to the
money we loaned, and we will be a lot of
suckers if we do not get it.
MAKIXU I S THE COAT
England is talking about cancelling the
debt owed to her by France. And we have
right here in this country some people who
argue that this is a noble example, and that

The Financial Outlook
The demand throughout the mainland for high grade in
vestment securities, which has developed as n result of the
gradual lowering of interest rates, exhibits no signs of slack
ening. As u result, bond prices are steadily advancing and it
appears that the time is drawing near when the opportunity
to purchase high degree investment securities at prices which
yield liberal returns will have passed not to return, in all
probability, for many years.
It will soon be true that the investor who had foresight to
accumulate conservative investment securities at present pric
es will be in a position to point with pride to the wisdom
of his judgment.
