Your day's work is shortened and
made easier when you have a good
oil cookstove. Burn Star Oil for fuel
and you no longer have coal and
wood to carry or ashes to shovel out.
You work with a clean controlled
heat that is concentrated directly un
der the utensil where it is needed
and your kitchen is kept cool and
free from dirt.
Star Oil is the clean-burning, uni
form, economical kerosene refined
and re-refined by a special process.

There are few house owners who would not change
details in their homes in building again. In many
cases it is the bathroom that is unsatisfactory.
Any bathroom without a Pembroke built in tub is
bound to be unsatisfactory, for without the Pem
broke the ultimate in bathrooms has not been
reached. And it is the ultimate we all are striving
for. See the Pembroke before you decide.

Early this morning about 9 o'clock
we went to the sea beach to learn
about the different kinds of rocks
and corals. Some of the children
got on the automobile and the rest
formed a double line and marched
The air was sweet but the sun
was not shining brightly. The moun
tains could be seen clearly. We walk
ed on the left hand side of the road
until we reached the seashore. On
the way I saw two ducks, chickens
and some men working on the
road. There were two boys " mowing
grass. There were four boys: one
was white, two were brown and
the other was black.
Our teacher chose one of the
boys to be policeman and he watch
ed us carefully.
We picked some and then came
back to where she was. We learn
about Oahu. This is what we learned:
Oahu was formerly a submerged
Island down under the sea. By and
by the coral workers or insects that
build corals, built coral reefs. To
build these it took many, many long
years before the Island of Oahu
reached the surface of the waters.
There was another thing that help
ed Oahu to have high mountains.
It was the volcano which burst and
threw all tho dirt and rocks out.
We saw some black rocks mixed
with coral reefs and was told about
it as follows:
There was a volcano somewhere.
This poured out hot lava. This
flowed into the ocean and cooled
oft and became black. The lava
rocks fell down among the corals.
Some insects died but the others
kept on with their work and by and
by the corals grew around the lava
forming coral reefs of two kinds of
We also were told that the rocks
were separated from each other by
the action of the waves. At flint
they were pointed and rugged but
the waves washed over them and
shaped them roundly.
It a steamer Is wrecked on a
coral reef the setamer is held fast
by the sharp points.
We all followed Mrs Sheldon to
a place where the sand was smooth.
She drew tin outline of Oahu on
the sand and told us to point out
the different places that we 111
learned about on It. She showed us
on the sand how pearl lochs
once looked. It was once wido
enough tor a small boat to enter.
She also told us about different
mountains and ranges. We were
now ready to go back. Tte boys
waiked and the girls rode. When
wc leached thr school wo all took
our own corals out of the car uuj
went to our room.
We rested a while and the bell
rang for the noon recess. We went
out to have our lunch and my lunch
was tasty for I was tired and hun

Thomas A. Edison is not much
given to humor he is far too busy
for that but he has one yarn that
he is never tired of repeating:
A man from the country one day
came to town and put up at a first
class hotel. He went to the office
and asked the clerk what were the
times for meals.
"Breakfast, seven to eleven," ans
wered the clerk; "lunch, eleven to
three; tea three to six; dinner six
to eight, and supper eight to twelve."
"What!" shouted the astonished
visitor, "When am I going to get
time to see the town?" Pittsburgh

Editor Garden Island: Since my
recent visit to your beautiful is
land. I have been possessed with
a desire to give you some of my
impressions of Kauai, to express my
awe and wonder at the peculiar
beauty of its several sections. But
of course, mere mortal cannot do
that. I have had the assistance of
every person who has over been
on Kauai or even heard about it.
For there seems to be but one
theme: "The Garden Isle." "The
What impresses me most is. re
gardless of nativity or adoption of
home elsewhere, every person seems
anxious to accord to Olokele and
Waimea canyons, the most sublime
beauty o fcolor and formation and
to Hanalei coast the most varied,
restful attractiveness to be found
anywhere In the world. These sec
tions seem to combine the unique
and wonder and beauty features of
all the country. Indeed, It is said
by many world travelers that no
where can greater beauty and at
tractive restfulness be found. The
beaches inviting and easy of ac
cess; the many little waterfalls
which surprise you at every turn;
the unique formations of mountain
and valley; the verdure and flora
of satisfying hue; and over all that
coloring of such sublime hue and
tone as only the Master Hand can
paint, combine to make a scene of
the most wonderful attractiveness.
The question I asked several
times during my visit has been
asked by many others since my re
turn to Honolulu. Why has not
Kauai been made attractive as a
tourist objective? Why have those
canyons not been made a national
park? Why has not some enterpris
ing business person made Waimea
Hotel a resort of such comfort
and invitation that it would have
to extend its accommodations to
the town limits? Why not make
this point a landscape garden be
fitting the "Gateway to the Canyons
of Varied Beauty?" Why are
the roads of these canyons so in
ferior to the notedly good roads of
the island? Why has not some good
Samaritan built a road house up
amidst the beauties of Puukapele
or some other point?
In other words, why is the dear
world public shut out from para
dise as embodied on Kauai? The
hospitality of Kauai's citizens is con
ceded. The latch string is ever out.
No trouble too great, no withhold
ing the most generous provision or
extended suggestion. But does Ka
uai shrink from what might seem
exploitation? Would it be willing to
open its doors or even permit them
to be opened a little way say by
the Inter-Island, or some other en.
I hope you do not think me over
enthusiastic; or that beauty of scen
ery is my only happy remembrance
of Kauai. For I assure you the lat
ter is not the case. My enthusiasm
is Just as keen about your schools
and other community activities, And
while mentioning schools, may I
tell you what I found specially in
teresting about them?. Of course
your fine groups of good type of
buildings with their spacious
grounds, providing not only for beau
ty of surroundings, but opportuni
ty for agricultural and recreation
al pursuits claimed first attention.
Not one school but Is supplied with
ample garden space. It rests only
with the teacher to direct ihs or her
school to the making of that Bpace
a beauty and profitable study. The
indication is that your supervisors
are co-operating with the schools
to give the best opportunity for the
education of Kauai's children.
Another instance of hearty co
operation was found in the schools
themselves. Supervisors, principals,
teachers, officers, unite in one ob
jective to administer a construct
ive, progressive, up to date educa
In my entire ten days visit I
heard nothing but a willingness to
comply with any request made, or
an eager desire for suggestion that
would make for advancement. The
teachers and principals were un
sparing of time and effort, the su
pervisors cordiul and sympathetic
in their relations with the schools.
It was a most enjoyable and profit
able ten days visit. I certainly broad
ened my views and added many
items of valuable Information.
If tho harmony which apparently
exists in the school organization is
indicative of the harmonious rela
tions of al island activities educa
tional, religious, civic, business, it
is but an added argument for "The
open door to Kauai."
