"It cooks my, milk,
mush and warms my
And browns such lovely toast;
Bakes bread and biscuits while youwait;
Can boil, and fry, and roast
The boiler's piping hot,
The cook is ever gay;
And papa says' the "New Process"
Has surely come to stay.

Two Hits Made u Fortune for Its
(Contributed companion piece to theAdvertiser's item "Wonderful PuhnlnTree.")
In the month of February 1889, Mr.Kimo Knnaknole, n venerable Hawaiianresiding at Waikikl, Oahu, purchaseda twenty-fiv- e cent Samoan dwarf coa-coun-
tree, which he planted near hislittle grass hut on the sands. Reing afisherman he found It necessary to fol-low his vocation day by day and con-sequently was unable to put in thetime for the first year or two watching the progress of its growth, as didthe Puhaln. old lady. Rut the eoacoa- -
nut tree seemed to grow amazinglywell without any watching. In threeyears it attained n sufficient height toshade his humble cot and then in ac-cordance" with ancient custom, hochopped two or three holes in thetrunk of the tree and placed in eachhole a cobble stone. In n very shorttime the tree began to blossom andbear and its boughs and trunk topwere loaded with coacoanuts, ironpots, calabashes and fish nets all ofwhich, however, did not come from thecoacoanut blossoms, but as Kanaka- -tile's prosperity increased these wereplucked ns well as the coacoanuts anddisposed of. The tree, notwithstand-ing the variety of its bearing at first,proved to be very prolific in nuts, andere long the fortunate owner was en-abled to repluce his humble cot with afine two storied frame house to whichhe has added a fine dairy, whre hiscoacoanuts are milked and from whichho supplies milk to a large number ofthe prominent residents, as well us theNew Hotel at Waikiki. It has beendiscovered thai' drinking the milkfrom .coacoanuts has all the cxhilerat-in- g
effect without the bad name ofother intoxicants and thu manager ofthe Waikiki says that it is just as wellthat they would not give him a $1,000license, that it tastes just as well froma coacoanut shell and, in fact, some ofhis society customers seem to like itbetter that way. It is stated that Mr.Kanakaole has a contract for his coa-coanut milk to supply the hotel forone year.
In addition to this the tree supplieslarge quantities of copra which lie ex-ports to Germany and from the broadstems and leaves he has furnished thecovering for most of tho lanals at Wai-kiki.
It is learned that Mr. Kannknolo isthinking of sending a proposal of mar-riage to the lady of the Puhaln tree. '

nullQUESTIONS AND ANSWERS HY AX
Erie Coinage Idea Favorably Present-
ed Demonetization and Its Effects
"Mint the Uiillion."
(W. II. Harvey in the Hitnetallist.)What is bimetallism?Tlie equal legal treatment of the two
metals, gold and silver, as money at agiven ratio of coinage.
What Is meant by 10 to IVThat in coining the two metals into
money, 10 ounces' of silver are to bedeemed equal to one ounet! of gold.
What is the present ratio of silverand gold bullion V
It is about :i0 to 1.What has caused the divergence be-
tween the coin and the bullion valueof silver?
The demonetization of silver in 187.1by this country and some of tho na-tions of Europe.
Why was silver demonetized?It was demonetized because of the
desire to limit the supply of money, tomake money dearer, thus increase itspurchasing power and, therefore, tothe advantage of money dealers, bond-holders, creditor classes and those hav-ing fixed incomes.
Was not the demonetization of silverin 18711 due to its overproduction ascompared with gold?
It was not due to the over produc-tion of silver, because for .many yearsprior to 1873 the world's production ofgold had been about three times n-- lgreat .as that of silver, and in 1873 sil-ver bullion was at a premium of II percent over gold.
How does the world's production ofgold and silver for the last 100 yearscompare with each other?
Hetween the years 1792 and 1892 theworld's production oE gold exceededthat of 'lv?r nlsJiit $,ot ,oin,ooo.
What is the ratio of the two metalsni they exist by weight in the worldtoday available for money?
It is about 15 2-- 3 to 1, which meansthat there are only about sixteen timesns many tons of silver in the worldavailable for money as there are tonsof gold.
What, therefore, is the nntural ratiobetween silver and gold?
Sixteen to one is the nntural ratiobetween silver and gold bullion, andwould manifestly be the present com-mercial ratio had not there been legalinterference.
To whose advantage is it that na-tions have been induced to adopt, thegold standard?
To the advantage of all creditor na-tions, especially England. Two bundred million people now use gold aloneas redemption money, who in 1873:used both gold nnd silver; hence theconstant rise in the power of gold(and tlie money based on gold) whichrise shows itself In the fall of prices ofcommodities.
If we had free coinage of silverwould not this country become thedumping ground for silvur from allnations?
There are, it is supposed, about fourbillion dollars coin and bullion in the world, and if all of thisshould come here it would only givetho United Stntes a per capita of ulwut$oS, which is only a little more thanwe had of all kinds of money in theNorth at tlie close of the war whentimes were exceedingly prosperous.France today has nearly this amountof money per capita, and is one of tliemost prosperous countries In theworld.
What is there to prevent this silverfrom coming to our mints for coinnge?
There nre three conclusive reasons:First Other nations have no more sil-ver than they now need; second,Europe nnnually uses about twice asmuch silver ns she produces, and,thirdly, the great bulk of silver nowin existence is already coined at ra
mints for recolnnge, would not Europecontinue to the
North South America produce7." per cent of silver now beingproduced in world nnd ten timesmuch does, so thatUnited Stntes and the other countriesof the western continent, could easilycontrol price of silver bullion re-gardless of other nntions.
Why not more silver intosilver dollar so' ns to make tho bullionand values equal?
Hecause tills disagreement is due toadverse legislation, which, when, cor-rected, will restore the parity rediielng tlie demand for gold and in-creasing the demand for silver. Re-sides we would be foolish to under-value our own products. Ry right weshould demand l.Vi instead of 10 to 1
If silver should come to our mintsfor faster than their.capacity, would not that prevent the,
Lfuir,"jise in tlie price of sliver bullion?Hie of our mints could
easily be enlarged to all de-mands.
Will not the people object to flsingso much silver account of its bulk?
Silver certificates, aR now- used, willeasily float nil sliver that mfiy be words.presented.
Would there be vault room forstorage of so much silver?
All silver coin andhiullion in tlieworld could be put in a room sixty-si- xfeet square. Silver being, like gold, nprecious metal, all the gold coin andbullion in tlie world can be put in aroom twenty-tw- o feet square andtwenty-tw- o feet high, which showshow easily it may be "cornered."
Would not the free coinage of silverso stimulate tlie production nt tliemines as to create a fiood of the whitemetal?
The annual output of gold and silveris small and Is hardly ."i per cent of thepresent supply, so that it would taketwenty years before tlie presentamount of tlie metals is doubled, andthat would not, more than keep 2acewith tlie increase of imputation andwealth of the world, and especially notof the United States.
What then, is really the onlythat we as a nation have to
regarding the free coinage of silver?We have practically only to take
core of and absorb, our share of tlieannual production of silver, which isfar tlie whole world only nloitt 5 percent of the present available supply.
How would silver get into circula-tion under free coinage?
Under free coinage the owner of sil--bullion would take it. .
