Fujioka, Court Barber at Hana
maulu, has a penchant for cutting
comers. Last Wednesday evening
he indulged again, negotiating the
Lihue Store corner at high rate of
speed, also being on the wrong side
of the road, and the hand of tht
law fell upon him.
Next morning in Court a fine of
825.00 and cost of 81.00 was im
posed by his Honor, reducing Fuji
oka's enthusiasm appreciably and
he solemnly promised the Judge
not to take chances again, which
would entail the loss of his license,
nd perhaps his liberty also.

The window display of war
breads and cookies, with Haw
aiian jellies, jams and canned
pineapple, at the Lihue Store has
attracted much attention during
the week. The food posters

The Ilanainaulu Store has do
voted two windows during the
week to food products. In one
window were displayed cereals
oilier than wheat, such as rolled
oats, corn-lhikes, oatmeal, corn
meal, and graham, bran and rye
(lours. In the other window, fol
lowing tho example of Lihue
Store, were shown varieties of
war-breads and cookies, jellies,
jams and canned pineapple.
The Kapaia Store had a simi
lar window display of cereals, and
a show-ease exhibition of breads
Credit for the attractive ar
rangement of these displays ih
due to Mrs. Broadbent, Chairman
of the Woman's Committee on
Food Conservation, Lihue Dis
trict. A show-ease display at the Mult
aweli Store during the week has
called forth much favorable com
mnet. The display aims to draw
attention to common, every-day
foods which can be substituted
for wheat. It was arranged by
Mrs. Hodge, of the Women's Food
Commission, assisted by Mrs.
Norman Browne. In the center
is banked a mound of wheat, .sur
mounted by a playeard, ''Save the
Wheat," and in contrast are piled
on either side bags of graham
flour, cornmeal, and oatmeal,
with a huge bag of potatoes at
one end and rice at the other, all
appropriately playcarded with
signs admonishing the use of such
products in place of those con
taining wheat. Above, under
glass, are displayed kitchen cards
in both English and Japanese,
giving recipes for their use. Sim
plicity and directness are the key
notes of the exhibit, which is most
successful in conveying at a
glance the lesson it seeks to teach.

at the success of what is perhaps

By a decision rendered last week
In the United States District Court at
Honolulu, Judge Horaco V. Vaug
han held that tho Haiku Sugar Com
pany and six other defeudants, all
Maui plantation owners, were not lia
ble for income txes, which the Uuited
States has been seeking to collect
since 1909. This case is of much in
terest to plantation owners. The in
timation conveyed by the decision is
that the peculiar form of incorpora

bution of not earnings insures tho pay

instead of by the corporation.

The War Thrift Stamps
Heretofore little opportunity has
been offered for the methodical sav
lng of small sums of money by people
of small means. The banks have not
encouraged It as a rule, because It
means a great deal of bookkeeping.
Now that war thrift stamps and cards
have been Introduced, every ono can
save, even tho smallest sums. Tho
various postoMces throughout tho
country are now supplied with these,
and ono can invest. A card is pro
vided, with space for sixteen stamps.
Each stnnip soils for twenty-flvo cents,
bo that when the card is full, It rep
resents a value of 14.00. Then for a
few cents more the thrift stamps can
bo exchanged for a war savings
Tho thrift stamps boar no interest,
but they are as good as gold, and
offer an excellent opportunity to save,
and at the same time to help tho
country Just at a time when It needs
our help. Even a child can buy a
twenty-flvo cent thrift stamp, and
children oldor grown need show no
hesitancy in investing small sums.
Buy somo thrift stamps. Save
Up to Saturday night 1281 ques
tionnaires had been mailed from
the office at Lihue. Out of 142
that were mailed last week but 55
answered or appeared. In distant

they are sought out immediately.

of any one seeking to entirely avoid
or escaping answering the questions,

so elects, he may declare himself a
citizen of the United States. By a
very remarkable majority, thpse
young men have declared themselves
to be citizonB of the United States,

Tho little fourteen months old f-on
of Mr. and Mrs. Chang Yau, of Wal
mea, has been 111 for a week or no
with pneumonia. The crisis scorned
to have passed, a few days ago, and
tho child rallied and seemed to be on
tho road to recovery. The mother
saw her little ono apparently calmly
Bleeping, on Monday, and tiptoed out
of the room, happy that her boy was
resting. Shortly afterward, however,
her mother-heart became anxious, and
she went softly In to see him, and was
horrified to find him dead.
Tho little fellow was burled on
Tuesday from tho Forolgn Church.
Many neighbrs called to offer sympa
thy and hqlp to tho bereaved parents,
who feel deeply appreciative for the
words of cheor given and tho many
floral offerings brought. Chan Yau
Is cashier of Bishop's Bank, at Wal
mea. The funoral services, both at tho
homo and at the church, woro con
ducted by Rev. Marcus E, Carver.
