DON'T GIVE UP
The children nre back in school again,
and again they need all the encouragement
our people ican give. For our part we haven't
heard of a school boy getting a poor grade,
or failing, but we think of Abe Lincoln, lie
was n young man when he ran for the legis
lature, and was defeated, lie entered business
with a worthless partner and failed. It took
him seventeen years to pay off his debts, lie
then ran for congress, and was beaten, lie
then tried to get a land office appointment,
and he experienced another disappointment.,
lie became a candidate for the United States
senate, and was defeated. In ISoti he became
a candidate for vice president, and was snow
ed under. Two years later he was defeated
by Douglas. And then he ran for the Presi
dency of the United States. Every school boy
knows of the result of that race, and the
rest of the story, and every school boy should
recall Lincoln's failures when he is down in
his studies. For what Abe Lincoln did after
repeated failure any Kauai boy can do, when .
he, too, has failed to reach his mark.
THE LONGER NIGHTS
We are getting right up to the season
of longer nights, nights when we are going
to spend more time in the house than we
have during the pleasant evenings of the
past few months. For that reason it is not
out of place to offer a suggestion as to how
to while away, and with profit to yourself
and family, the longer evenings before yon.
We have studied the question and believe the
solution lies in a bountiful and always fresh
supply of reading niater, something in the
reading line for every member of the family.
In this connection we are in a position to
fit you out with clubbing propositions that
cost but little, but which will bring hours
of happiness throughout the fall and winter.
In connection with a year's subscription to
your home paper we can, for a few ad
ditional cents, furnish you any magazine
or paper printed in America. Don't put it
off, each evening is getting longer. Come in
and let us tell you how we can solve your
reading matter problem at little cost.
We used to think that the main idea of
a college was to fix it so a fellow wouldn't
have to work for a living.
A man isn't necessarily bashful simply
because he dislikes to meet his obligations.
And many a man with a laugh coming
to him doesn't see it until after it is gone.
TWO VITAL NEEDS
There are two very important things
that go toward making a good, live town:
One is persistent, thorough and attractive ad
vertising and the other is backing up the
advertising with performance. There is no
use advertising if you have not the goods, and
there is no use of having the goods if you do
not advertise them. Xo town has ever bene
fitted by the man who sits down and waits
for more enterprising and public spirited
persons to bring trade to him, and neither
is it by the man who fails to deliver the
goods when called upon. Doth can hedp make
a row pasture of a town. When the business
houses of a community know how to adver
tise anil how to follow up the advertising
by giving good service, the community is
sure to grow, and that helps all the people,
for a part of every dollar stays in town. A
part of every dollar spent in a town goes to
taxes, churches, charities, street and sidewalk
improvement. Is not that argument enough
to convince you the dollar ought to stay
We heard a Lihue man say a few days
ago that the reason women have better teeth
than men is because they're in the open more.
THE stocks and bonds department
ot a trust company can be a
very cold department, but in the
Trent Trust Company an effort Is
made to keep it distinctly human.
In many cases our personal know
ledge of the client's business affairs
has saved him money whereas if
he had dealt thru an intermediary
it might have resulted otherwise.
