Charity -Hint i'h cheap in not
always the least acceptable. In
deed, what costs us little, to mako
the unfortunate happy, may like
ly bo mora esteemed by tlio bono
fiuinriob thau greater sacrifices,
foi the reason that it involves a
lighter tax on the seuBo of obliga
tion Visitors to Molokai the
othor day found that the sick folk
there, although having fow and
slight complaints to utter, would
have their hours greatly cheered
if the people of Honolulu thought
oftener to sond them reading
matter. Poor old Jack Lewis,
sitting in his cottage door by the
waysido, turned his sightless eyeB
in the direction of a friendly hail
and spoke the desires of hie heart.
Ho exacted a promise from the
president of the Board of Health
to have a stone fenco built to pro
tect his lowly cot, and then he ad
jured the visitors to send him
some papers now and again. "My
boy is dead," he said in an
swer to a remark, "but tlio
little girl can read to mo."
Many people in Honolulu have
old magazines and illustrated
papers that they will nover mako
any use of, and which would bo
highly appreciated by the denizens
of Kalaupapa and Kalawao. For
eign newspapers not too ancient,
with the local papers, would also
be eagerly welcomed. Parcels of
reading matter for Kalaupapa
may bo sent to the reading room
there, or in care of the storekeeper
at the laudiug, and for Kalawao
to the Ghristiau Brothers in
charge of tlio Baldwin Home.
This is one of the easiest ways
that can -be imagined for sending
rays of enjoyment into Uvea that
have little happiness left to them
in this world.
Charles 11. Bishop and Henry
P. Baldwin, if they never did any
othor works of benevolence which
both aio well known to have done,
had not made their "piles" in vain
when they drew therefrom to ereot
the homes for girls and boys at
Molokai. These institutions, built
by Protestants and conducted by
Roman Catholic devotees of
charity and good works, have un
doubtedly constituted the chief
agency in effeoting a revolution in
the conditions of life generally at
'Kalaupapa and Kalawao. It is
because of them that Father Pam
phile after crossing oceans and
continents to take up the work
left by bis lamented brother is
enabled to say, regarding minis
trations to the bodily sufferings of
the lepers, "There is nothing to
do." Sick young people and help
loss aged ones are gathered in
most comfortable wards, within
compounds as airy as all outdoors
and beautiful with tropical flora,
while having the Sistors and
Brothers available to aid and com
fort them at a moment's call.
There is thereforo really nothing
left which those devoted women
and mon do not accomplish, of
such Bovere labors as Father Da
mien for long years endured, in
the most repollant duties of hos
pital nursing and tlio arduous toil
of houso to houso visiting and
ministering at the bedsides of tho
sufforing and dyipg.

The Evening Bulletin, 75 cents
THE greatly Increased price of cream of tartar, the
chief ingredient of a pure baking powder, has in
duced some manufacturers to substitute burnt alum
(which costs but 3 cts. a pound), largely or wholly in
lieu thereof, making a very low cost but a very un
wholesome baking powder; and great efforts are made
to foist these inferior powders upon consumers by the
inducement of a lower price and by grossly false repre
sentations as to their ingredients and comparative value.
Alum baking powders have been declared by the most
competent authorities injurious to health. Therefore
every precaution must be taken to keep them out of
the house. They masquerade under many names, and
new brands are continually appearing.
It is safe to avoid all new brands. Baking
powders that are sold either wholesale or retail at
a lower price than Royal are almost invariably
made from alum, and therefore not only inferior
in quality, but positively dangerous to health.
Consumers can be more certainly protected from
alum baking powders, and make the wholesomeness
of their food doubly sure, by rigidly refusing all sub
stitutes for Royal Baking Powder. The Royal is cer
tified by the Government and State chemists free from
alum, absolutely pure, and superlative in leavening
It is unwise to take chances by the
use of other brands.

Everyone knows that a bird
in the hand is worth two in

larly the case when the bird is
a pet canary and a good singer.
Nice birds should be kept in
nice cages and then they will
have no desire to take to the
bushes. vVe have just opened

The mango season is now
on in all its force and the small
boy is engaged in his yearly
tussle with that luscious fruit.
In former years for every
mango fit to eat the boy
knocked down with a rock he
destroyed eight or ten unripe
ones besides half ruining the
tree. All this is changed now
since the introduction of our
Wire Fruit Pickers. With one
of these attached to a long pole
any particular mango can be
plucked without hurting the
tree or knocking off the unripe
fruit. By using one of these
handy pickers one gets several
times more fruit in better con
dition than by the old way of
firing rocks at the tree. They
cost only 50 cents each and a
child can use them.
