We like to Sell
There's more real satisfaction to us
in selling a high grade article than in
making a big quick profit because it
means a steady future customer.
When we sell Kodak goods we know that
our customers will he so well satisfied that we
will hold his trade. That is why we handle
the Kodak line exclusively not merely Kodak
cameras, hut the simple little Brownie cameras
and the Premo cameras for use with glass plates
and the daylight loading Premo Film Packs
and the Graflex cameras, with their marvelous
focal plane shutters so fast that they will
catch a humming bird on the wing. We have
too the Hawk-Eye cameras with special features
of their own and the Kodak films and plates
and papers all goods which are made by vari
ous divisions of the Kodak Company goods
that are right because made by a concern that
can't afford to sell goods of any other kind.
Let us show you the new goods from the

"Yo Mime," came back yo answer,
"and who In still" wandering around

Of course, he had no chanco of know

"Say, but I am having some great

Ye general populace Is wont to
envy ye ordinary public official hys
Job and wish that they had one that
was like unto It. At the same tlmo
yo public official Is v. lulling ull yo
tlmo that he could get rid of It and
spciiro n nice (inlet little lob In yo
city, free from all ye cares and wor
ries of public life. These two uncon
tradicted facts need looking Into,
Wherefore ye scribe even sacrifices
hymseir upon yo altar.
Ye only facts that yo scribe bad
to work on were that ye public ofll-
clal thought that he was ye most
hard-worked man In yo Territory,
while 'ye man on ye street thought
that ye official had yo line time. Take
ye stand of ye official first. If he Is
ye good olficial and has plenty of ye
talk that soothes yo nerves of yo irate
tuxnayer. who wants all yo Improvo'
rnents done in hys particular lot, he
will last, or. if he is strong enough
politically to bo able to send out ye
message to yo taxpayer that ho Is too
busy to see hyin, then he holds down
ye lid without any effort It Is ye
official of ye ln-botwcen breed, how
ever, tliut Is ye hard gontleman to
deal with, and who also makes It'hard
lor hymself to keep yo lid from Hying
Ye Irate taxpayer will come In and
want to know just why yo official is
not spending ull yo money on yo dis
trict in which he lives. Yo official
will start In to tell hyin that there
lire other pebbles on ye beach, but yo
taxpayer will immediately tell ye offi
cial that they ure not to be compared
to liyniHelf. Then will start In ye
great and mighty argument, and ye
("taxpayer will bounce out of ye 'olllco
ind go dqwn yo street telling all hys
friends that yo olficial Is of no ac
count. Tlioso of hys friends who own
properly In ye districts whero'yu chief
supporters of ye official are will sym
pathlzo with hyin, and behind their
hnrkn Ihnv will nvnn sav to them
selves what a good man yo official is.
Then yo same official will feol ex
Initiated with yo oxortlons to which
ho has been put, and will even' tako
hymself to hys automobile and And u
man that he has to nee on ye other
sldo of yo island. When yo reporter
conies nlong ho will even tell hyin
that he has had yo very busy day and
went to yo other side of yo Island to
see yo man about a dog for ye police
Then ono day In a weak moment ho
will conlldo to ye bosom friend that
ho does not think much of a certain
gentleman, and that friend will ro
llout ye conversation. In time It gets
to ye ears ot ye gentlemen of yo
press, and then thero Is plllkla for
yo oillcial. He generally denies all yo
story, and there is further plllkla.
Public officials are of many kinds.
Somo aro short and somo are long.
Bomo are nlco and some nro ye con
trary. Some of them thoro nro wlio
hold down their Jobs by telling the
reporters nil that thoy know, and oth
ers who tell the reporters that what
thoy havo said Is all they know while
away at the back of their heads is a
real good story. Yo chief fault about
un oillcial Is that as goon us he be
comes one ho Immediately thinks that
there Is something to hide and is
nfrnld for fear yo general public shall
get wise to ye fact. Therein Is hys
general downfull sooner or later.
This Is yo first of a series, ye sec
ond number of which will appear In
yo next century.
Vo mind of yo average woman It does
not appoal; It just lakes n hold, and
tliero Is on' end of It.
Ye patent medicine man knows this,
and ho therefore gets a little sugar
and water, puts something in that will
give It u prqtty color, shoves n rain
bow label around it, and there it .the
stuff , feady .for sale. Then ho upends'
n lot of money telling people all about
his stuff tind how good it is. Ho glcs
n bottle to somo old lady who has
been un Invalid ull her life, and sho
takes It. Yo agent romes around and
sees her, and before ho Is tliiougn
she thinks that sho Is really feeling
u little better,
Then yo dear old thing is so grate
fill that sho willingly signs tho letter
that ye agent has written out, and in
a few wcckfTllilR Is printed In all the
papers throughout the country. A
friend of hers sees yo letter nnd
thinks that sho must try n bottle too,
and so yo game goes on. People
hypnotize themselves Into buying
stuff, nnd yo patent medicine man
Tho Chinese and Japanese have yo
white folks skinned In yo game, how

ye marks on the boxes aro so wonder

Some of them aro strange looking
liquids, others are pills of all sorts

Why is it that Haw all's greatest
curiosity has 'never been boomed, nnd
that there ure vory few people outside
of those living In ye vicinity who
know of It? Ye scribe refers to ye
street curs that run from Punuhou
Junction to Munoa Valley.
Recently he had occuslon to visit
yo land of many rains, and being a

that it was necessary to carry an

after the first sole is worn out.
But how do you have It done?
By the ordinary cobblers' method?
If you do, your experience has
undoubtedly shown you how un
satisfactory this method Is. You
most likely get inferior materials
and clumsy workmanship. Besides
this, the usual method of "tapping"
that is, piecing the sol. widmay in
the shank gives the shoe a de
cidedly unsightly look.
Then, again, tho nails sometimes
used by the cobbler cause no little
discomfort to the foot. They are
