The larger planning and economies will fall to the lot of the father. He may be carrying out some such plan as that adopted by a merchant who deposited a dollar, in the savings bank on the birth of each 'child. On the second birth day . he deposited two dollars, on the third birthday three dollars, and so on until the child reached the age of 21. On that anniversary there was $306.16 to the child's credit in the bank. The father, did not miss this sum, yet it piled up a considerable amount. Are you trying some such plan as this for your children? .

Since the filing in San Francisco on November 14 of a motion for. dis miscal of all the 17 goverhment suits against the Honolulu Consolidated Oil Co., which motion is being heard in Los Angeles before Judge Bean", hope is held out that this latest move ot the government attorneys will bring the litigation to an end and result in a distribution among the stockholders of the several million dollars held in escrow In New York to protect the Standard Oil company on purchase. made in the past of oil taken from the lands now in litigation. After many, months of solicitation the department of justice obtained the consent of Secretary Lansing of the interior department to set aside the clearing list order in these claim matters and suits were finally filed iu March last. Now conies a motion to dismiss and it is assumed Jhat the government attorneys have decided that they hn.d reached a point beyond which they cannot pass. It has been suggested that they have discovered that substantial foundation for suits is lacking. The stock of the Honolulu Consoli dated Oil company was today quoted at $4. Resides the litigation there "have teen several other contributing factors responsible for present low figures among them the unionizing of labor in the oil fields, general labor unrest, the possibility of the govern ment fixing the price of oil, and the excess profits tax on oil earnings. GROUND BROKEN FOR NEW KANE0HE SCHOOL Supervisor Ben Hollinger, chair man of the schools, public parks and playgrounds committee, turned tin first sod Tuesday afternoon ' on the grounds where the new school, at Kaneohe is to be shortly erected. An appropriation for $1200, the estimated cost ot the new school house, will be sought. Following the turning of the sod, Supervisor Hollinger, . Superintendent of Parks A. K. Vierra, Sheriff Charle3 Rose and Johnny Cummings were en tertained at dinner cn the grounds. The novelty of the feast was the fact that it was. cooked and served by the prisoners Who are now busy leveling the ground where the new school is to 1)e erected. When completed the building will have ample accommodation to house the 252 children now attending school in the present dilapidated shacks that pass as school houses. John S. Aisthodpe, president of the First .National Bank and Trust Co., and former president of the Illinois State Bankers association, shot and killed himself at'Tiis home at Cairo, 111. He had been in poor health for several months. STOMACH.! MEDICINES ARE DANGEROUS DOCTORS NOW ADVISE MAGNESIA Just how dangerous, it is to indis criminately dose the stomach with drugs and medicines is often not real ized until too late. It seems so sim l'.e to swallow a dose of some speciaj mixture or take tablets of soda, pep sin, bismuth, etc, after meals, and the folly of this drugging is not apparent until, perhaps years afterward, when it is found that gastric ulcers have al most eaten their way through the stomach walls. Regrets are then un availing; it is in the early stages vhen indigestion, dyspepsia, heart turn, flatulence, etc, indicates exces sive acidity of the stomach and fer mentation of food con tens that pre caution should be taken. Drugs and medicines .are unsuitable and often dangerous they have little or no in fluence upon the harmful acid, and that is why doctors are discarding them and advising sufferers from .n digestion and stomach tr uble to get rid of lhe dangerous acid and keep the food contents blar 1 and sweet by taking a little pure bisurated magne sia instead. Bisurated Magnesia is an absolutely pure anti acid which can be readily obtained from any drug store. It is absolutely harmless, is practical ly tasteless and a teaspoonful taken in a little warm or cold water after meals, will usually be found quite sufficient to instantly neutralize excessive acid ity of the stomach and prevent all possibility of the food fermenting.
