TIIR HAWAIIAN STAR, THURSDAY, MAY 0. 1912.
Aycr's Sarsaparilla is a tonic
and alterative, free from alcohol.
What is a "tonic"? A medicine
that imparts strength or tone; a
medicine that builds up, gives
vigor and power. What is an
"alterative" ? A medicine that
alters or changes unhealthy ac
tion to healthy action. Ayer's
Sarsaparilla does all this with
out stimulation. Ask your doc
tor if a family medicine, like
Aycr's Sarsaparilla, is not vastly
better without alcohol than
with it. o

very much less Improbable In tho
coming days, In view of the fact (be

This Is n very faBclnntlng problem
upon which of course tliore are no

this line, howevor, Is the fact that
one of the finest race blends known
Is that of the Chinese and Hawaiian,
which has already reached a very
considerable proportion of the entire
population In Hawaii. The result of
this race mlxturo Is most .strikingly
attractive from every point of view.

The Immense sums of money that
the United States Is spending In Ha
waii ostensibly for defense can not
have any but unpleasant effect upon
i the Japanese popoulatlou In Hawaii o$
well as In Japan. The menace of this
fortification, contemplating In a shad
owy way European aggression as well
as thai of Asia, Is clearly addressed
toward Japan, and apart from the sen
timent of the situation, It would appear-
to the lay" mind as though tho
expenditure was an enormous nation
al waste. In part support of this fact
It should bo said that this expensive
outlay is made on territory where
there ar an overwhelmingly greater
number of Japanese aliens than of
United States citizens. Tho wrltor lias"
recently headed a .small brochure on
this subject "A Million for Defense to
Partly Offset tho Twenty Millions of
Offense." In this paper It was his
purpose jto show that extensive sys
tems of forts and mines against Japan
would be far more effectively re
placed by a friendly appeal to them on
educational and social lines.

a bewildering network of uncertain
