TWELVE HONOLULU STAB-BULLETIN, MONDAY. AUGUST 20, 1917. Ain't It a Grand and Glorious Feelin'? By BRIGGS DIVIDENDS ON THRIFT By DOROTHY OfX The World's HlgHeet Paid Woman Wrftar A WOMAN who has Just returned from s loss Journey to the Far East said to me the other day: ' "Do yon know what is almost the - strongest Impress urn rr.aJe on me by my whole trip? It fs a homely lesson In thrift, and I did not ret It from the frugal Oriental!, but from my own Country people. : t -JSverywhere I met Americans ennning themselves In the warmth of Southern California, splashing around In the Jeweled waters at Honolulu, drinking tea and gossiping with trav elers from the Back of Beyond In the Grand Hotel of Yokohama, puking around the curio shops In Peking and three-fourths of these Americans, yes. nine-tenths or mem who wtre traveling for pleasure, were fat. gray- headed; prosperous, middle-aged cou- Pies. . "Occasionally there was a young son or daughter along hut not often. ' Most-of them were Just oldish married :. folks who In their late fifties or early sixties were taking the honey moon trip that they had been too poor to take SS years before. '.-I talked to dozens of these couples lad always they told me practically - the same story. 4 "'Mother and I were married when " we were Terr young and hadnt a split Cansdtsn dime between us, the reminiscent stalment furniture man. They are shaving around the sixties, snd they are old and worn and broken, and the only trips they will ever take will be to the poorhouse and in a cheap hearse to a cheap cemetery. "And I thought of another couple about the age of these middle aged Joy trippers who started out In matri mony with a nice, comfortable little fortune. It was one of those de moralizing wads of money that are Just enough to make a man feel that be doesn't have to work unless he wants to, and that are not big enough to be waste proof. Honest to good ness, the best luck a young fellow can have Is either to have a billion dollars or not a penny. "Well, at any rate, this young couple let their money make them lazy and extravagant, the man trusted his business affairs to his subordinates and let his employes rob and waste, and his wife got bitten with the so ciety bug and became a reckless spender trying to keep up with people ten times as rich as she was. And the result was that by the time they were middle aged the sheriff sold them out, and now they are the most forlorn snd miserable old people you ever caw. Tor there is nothing else on earth so pathetic as impoverished old age old age without the comforts it needs, bid age without hope of any good for tune ever coming to it, old age that is forced to eat the bitter bread of de pendence, and take grudging charity, 1 thought of these piteous old couples that I know, the ones who trusted them with these other' middle aged couples who had worked and saved in their youth and who are now so happy and prosperous, and 1 thought, what a lesson in thrift! "And I thought that practically life offers us a choice of whether we will indulge ourselves in our youth or in our old age; .whether we'd rather have an easy Job when we are in our twen BEA m w sjs mr . man - would say. with a wtt SkvtVl srfwsfrMi eaftfl Was, tvti Is1 flTk Ot1l I . "'r:: rL , I frfvoled in their youth, and I con- it was skimpy living and hard bust- 11ns: in those days ; "1 was at the store before 7 o'clock every morning and I stayed in it until 11 o'clock at night, ana motner was up an hour before me and gave me a hot breakfast that she baa ; cooxea with her own' nands, ' and when I went to sleep she was patching my ' trousers or washing my shirt so that X could look - neat and respectable ' in m to work the next day. And we "counted the. pennies and pinched eV' ery dollar until we made the eagle scream. In. agony, and about- the only amusement we indulged ourselves In was watching; the little savings bank ? account rrow.v .-t r r?That policy of work and saving : won out then as It always has won ' out snd always will win out. It wasn't - long beore I was able to ; get an in - tereit in the business., and after, a t while we moved over on the sunny side of easy street Now our ehli "dren are grown and married and set i tied, - and so a year ago or- two I turned the business over to the boys : and I said to mother that after this we would Just put in the balance of our lives enjoying ourselves and tak ; leg the trips and doing the things we cidnv nave tns tuns ; nor xne money to do when,we"wert young.' . '"And every time I looked at these courles wiih their, placid, contented faces that beamed -with that surety ' of well being, that only the posses ' sion of a . safety : deposit vault full of gilt-edeged. securities -can give, I thought to myself, surely, after all. Yirture is Its own reward.-: and if you want to , be happy and comf or- table when yon - are old yon - must practise thrift when yon are young. "And my mind- would go back to , other couples that I knew st home people-about the same age as these .One couple that I knew very well had - started life on the same capital of nothing but love and health and youth. But the man always worked with one eye on the dock and a -settled " de termination that he was not going to do one lick more that he was paid tor. and his wife had ted him out of paper bags and bought shoddy ready-made . clothes- tor the family because she couldn't see any sense in a woman tl&risj herself to death over the cook store and sewing- machine. "And they have never, in all the years since they have been married. been ctte even with the landlord or the cutler or the grocer or the in- ties, or be able to retire from bust ness when we are in our sixties; whether we'd rather go to all sorts of little foolish shows and parties when we are young or to go around the world when we are middle aged. "One thing is certain, we can't est our cake when we are young and still have it when we are old. It we spend every cent as we go along no miracle makes it grow into a competence for our age. And age comes. It's the one certain thing in an uncertain world. and it is up to every young couple who sre starting out in life to decide for themselves whether it is to be fat snd comfortable or lean and hungry. "Of course it seems that on one but a fool could fail to realize the wisdom of practising thrift in their youth in order to be happy when they are old Youth Is such a Joy of itself that it needs no gilding. When one's figure is lissome snd willowy, and one's cheeks sre roses, and one's eyes are diamonds, ' one doesn't need fine clothes to set off one's beauty,- but when one is old and gray headed and fat, one needs all arts and artifices of the best tailor and dressmaker. When the blood races through one's veins, and Just living is a delight in itself, one needs nothing to add to the inter ests of existence, but when one grows old one needs travel and change, new sights, new people, new ideas to stim ulate one's thoughts. That is why I wished that every young married couple could see my gray headed old globe-trotters, whe were having such a good time collect ing dividends on the thrift they-had practised in their youth. It might stimulate them to go and do likewise.' (Copyright, 1917, by The Wheeler Syndicate, Inc.) Dorothy Dix's articles appear . regu larly in this paper every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

TEUTONS CLAIM MUCH BOOTY IS CAPTURED NEW YORK, N. Y.. Aug. 20. In the great aggreshre which the Ten tons have conducted on the east front, following the sudden collapse of the Russian morale, Berlin asserts that since July 19, the forces of the Central Powers have made prisoners of 665 officers, 41,300 men, 257 large guns, 548 machine guns, 139 mine throwers, 50,000 rifles, 25.000 gas masks 14 armored ears, .15 motor lorries, two armored trains, six load- ed railway trains, 28 locomotives, 218 railway , cars and several aeroplanes.

L. Castle. "By the same terms as the men, I mean that the women given the vote shall be citlxens 21 years of age," aays Senator Castle. "Naturally, un der the Republican pledge, I was in favor of woman .suffrage and If the legislature had seen fit to follow the lead, of the senate, this question might have been settled by now.. "The senate proposed that we me morialise congress requesting a change in the organic act allowing women to vote on the same terms as the men. This was a clear-cut propo sition but was beaten by the house of representatives, which insisted on some such proposition as has gone be fore congress. Rather than whlpsaw the whole subject, the senate, after the defeat of its bill, indorsed the congressional bill. "The bill in congress really has the effect of postponing woman suf frage, although it is of course better than nothing. Under this bill the next legislature, in 1919, may have a plebiscite on the subject. This could have been done by the last legisla ture, and the result submitted to con gress for action, the vote being an expression of opinion by the people of Hawaii. "However, the same people who killed the senate plebiscite bill on prohibition, if consistent, would have voted against a plebiscite on Woman suffrage on the flimsy theory that this legislature cannot call a plebiscite. If the congressional bill Is passed retaining a clause allowing the legis lature to act on the question without a plebiscite, then woman suffrage un questionably would pass at the next legislature. "There are many who would want to further prolong the question and would talk about a plebiscite 'to learn the will of the people,' but If both par ties are clear in their planks on this subject, the matter should be dis posed of satisfactorily to the women. TEUTON DIVERS HOIST SAILS AS DISGUISE AN ATLANTIC PORT, Aug. 19.- Again the warning is sounded that German submarines are being dis guised with sails to resemble sailing vessels and thus the more readily approach . close to their victims with out being discovered. An oil tank steamer which arrived here yesterday warned the port offi cials that there Is a German subma rine off the Atlantic coast and sail ing east that is so disguised. The warning has been telegraphed to all other Atlantic ports and departing vessels are warned to be on their guard against any craft, whether steam or sail, that they may sight. CHINESE HEAR WESTGATE Taking as his subject "Food and Agricultural Prospects," Dr. John M. Westgate, agronomist in charge of the U. S. agricultural experiment sta tion, addressed the members of the $18S,673SENT FROM HERE FOR RED CROSS VORI In line with the. general policy that the funds of the Red Cross are always open to the scrutiny of the puDiio? tne War Relief Committee will at the end of each week publish a list showing the donors 'and the amount of cash received during rthat week. Pledges m&v have come in also, but these amounts will only appear when ac tually collected. If, for any reason, the donor does not desire his name published, it will be given as "Friend" if he so desires or so in structs the committee. "Subscriptions to the Hawaiian Al lied War Relief should,: now that the body has combined with the War Re lief Committee, be paid in direct to the War Relief Committee.- This com mittee will in turn see that sufficient funds are paid over to the ladies for the continuation of their work. This does not mean that the ladies sub scribing should now cease their do nation, ; but rather that more should be paid In so that the work may be enlarged," sajt Treasurer A. L. Castle. 'The larger, part of the monthly receipts will be paid in to the 'Red Cross War Fund, William G. Mc- Adoo, Treasurer.' This war fund will be administered by the war coun cil appointed by the president of the United States, consisting of Henry P. Davison, chairman, Cornelius N. Bliss, Jr., Edward N. Hurley, Gray son M. r. Murphy, Charles D. Nor ton. William H. Taft and Eliot Wads worth. The personnel of this com mittee is of itself a sufficient guar antee that the moneys will be hon estly and efficiently administered. Mr. Davison, who has been released by J. P. Morgan & Co. for the period of the war, is an expert financier, and no finer or better man could be appointed for the difficult task of spending efficiently the hundreds of millions of dollars that will be neces sary to carry on Red Cross work throughput the United States and Europe in connection with the war. It was he who proposed and success fully financed the recent $114,000,000 subscribed for the 'Red Cross. Peo ple of Hawaii can thus be assured that their money will be spent where it is most needed."

"We are going to watch you and if you dont work and earn a de cent living so that yon can support yourself and your children, then we will put you in a place where the law provides women of your type shall go." The young Portuguese girl who sat opposite the judge hung her head and laughed. "Why did you change your name?" questioned the Judge. "Because I didn't want my husbsnd hanging snound my doorstep," an swered the girl. "And von took the name of the Man whb paid for the silk clothes you are wearing," said the Judge. "My husbsnd bought these silks," retorted the girl. "Is that so?" "Yeah." The judge told the girl she had bet ter go to work. "Oh, I don't care about going to work," answered the girl. "Of course you don't," asserted "the Judge. "That's Just the trouble. You like to wear silk clothes, don't you? How can you afford those things?" The girl did not answer. She Just smiled. "It's a case of go straight hereafter. young lady," the Judge concluded, and well keep an eye on you and see that you do."
