Furniture for Teachers Cottages
We bog to call attention to the new move made by Maui, noted in
another column, by which they witt henceforth supply furnished cottages
to their public school teachers Unquestionably this is the right policy.
It manifestly works a great hardship on nomadic teachers to trail about
heavy furniture with them from place to place or to make new pur-
chiisei every time they move. The heaviei articles of furniture such as
beds, tables, chairs, etc. are almost as necessary as the cottage itself, and
almost as diflicult of transportation. To have to provide them afresh
every Fall is an economical extravagence that works in the long run
against teaching efficiency.
We would recommend that as soon as convenient the same policy
be adopted for Kauai.
Who Pays The Bill? '
A recent copy of the Advertiser quotes from the Los Angeles Times
a statement which is so conclusive that we venture to transcribe it as
applicable to the same question here:
"Any restriction on personal liberty of any kind is vigorously op
posed by some people. Said one objector the other day: 'I use liquor;
drink every day ; get drunk occasionally, too. I spend my own money.
and myself suffer the headaches' and the pangs of conscience which fol
low. So long as the temperance people keep to moral suasion, all right;
when they try to save mv soul by talking to me, all right; but when
they attempt to take away my liberty to take a drink of whiskey by
taking away the right of a barkeeper to sell it to me, then I protest
We live in America, not in Turkey; in the twentieth, not the twelfth
century, and it is my privilege to get boiling drunk at my own expense.'
The answer to this plea is that a man does not get drunk at his own
expense. He gets drunk at the expense of his wife, his family and the
community. Any man who drinks to excess forces the community to
1 1.1 . .... A 4 1 . 1 A 1 ,
sianu me expense 10 a greater or less extent,, a record oi the cases
brought before the criminal court shows that eight out of ten of the de
fondants were habitually or occasionally intemperate. The cost of jails,
poorhousgs and insane asylums is not borne by the saloon keepers or by
the drunkards they make, but by the taxpaj-ersV These items swell the
tax levy and thus the taxpayer pays the cost of a man's carouse. The
loss in health, in opportunities to work and incapacity, to do work,
make a bilr which it would be difficult for the saloonkeepers to pay;
and the bill made out by mothers, wives and children for the amount
to pay for broken hearts and destroyed homes would be difficult to meet
The idea that man can live alone is a mistake; he belongs to a
church which admits of no separation ; he is on a single track which
must be run on at such a rate of SDeed that he will not collide with
others. We are drops in an ocean whose every puising wave communi
cates from Labrador to the Indies. We are not alone and cannot live
alone. As to saloon suppression taking away a man's liberty, it might
as well be said that a statue against bigamy deprives him of his liberty
to a fresh supply of domestic felicity.
The suppression of the saloon will decrease the cost of government
save homos from destruction and men from themselves."

United Slates Bonds
The United States Government issues bonds in two forms: (I)
t 'iL i a . 1 .. 4
nearer oonu.-s wun interest coupons attacnea, commonly called coupon
bonds; (2) bonds registered both as to principal and interest. Liliertv
Loan Bonds are issued in both bearer and coupon forms.
BEARER OR COUPON BONDS.
A bearer or coupon bond is payable to the ljearor, the holuVr. the
title parsing by delivery. The Treasury Department does not require
proof of ownership when such bonds are presented for payment or ex
change, the holder thereof being recognized. Such bonds may be bought
and sold without formality and without endorsements of any kind. At
tached to bearer bonds are sheets of coupons or certificates of interest
One of these coupons becomes due each interest payment date and should
be detached by the owner of the bond and cashed at his bank or present
ed to a Treasury office for payment.
A registered bond is payable only to its owner or his order, and can
be transferred only by being properly indorsed and assigned by the own-

ci. j. nc uuim imo iiiBcuutu un me iuco oi ii wie name oi me owner, or
payee, and such fact is recorded on the books of the Treasury Depart
ment against the particular bond indicated. Ihe change in ownership
of a registered bond is effected by the original payee indorsing and as
signing the bond, using the form on the back thereof in accordance with
tiie regulations oi the Ireasury Department. Such assignment must be
made before an officer designated by the Treasury Department, and such
ouiccr must certify thereto and affix his official seal. The officers who
are authorized to witness assignments are indicated in a note printed on
the back of the bond. Generally speaking certain judicial and Treasury
officers and executive officers of Federal Reserve and National Banks are
authorized to witness assignments.
Whoiv the owner of a registered bond disposes of it and has properly
assigned it, it should be forwarded at once to the Secretary of the Treas
ury for transfer on the ljooks of the Department. The bond so forward
ed is canceled and a new bond in the name of the new owner is issued
and sent to the new owner by registered mail.
The interest on registered bonds is paid by means of check? drawn
by the Secretary of the Treasury on the Treasury of the United States,
such checks being issued on the day interest is due. They are sent by
mail to the owners of the bonds.

A Household Necessity:
Luther Household Sharpener
Why have dull knive9, shears, chisels, axes or any ether
dull tool that should be sharp? Here's a sharpener any
child can operate; gives a keen edge in a jiffy; a light
strong little implement that may be quickly attached to
any table "or bench.
GENUINE DIMO GRIT WHEEL
Next to impossible to sharpen wrong or spoil any tool,
lust the thing for the mechanic to take dut on the iob.
