The Useful Papaya.
One of tho most useful, tinu yd
least appreciated pirtius in me worm,
is the common Papaya (Caryca P'l-
pnyn). Over this, to ua so well
known tree, the botanists have quar
relled expensively, some saying it is
an old plant, a survival from prehis
toric ages, so to' speak; while some
maintain that it is an entirely new
plant, trying to establish itself.
Again some say that it belongs to
tho Eupliorbiaccne; others maintain,
it is of a class entirely to itself.
Practically the only use of it now

Tho Importance of 1ho following
letter, published in Monday's Adver
tiser, will be patent to all Maui
chicken raisers. Our subscribers are
requested to try the remedy and re
port results to the News.
Editor Advertiser: I have recent
ly learned something in regard .to a
cure for chicken sorehead and seeing
in your paper that Mr. Jarcd Smith
has so far failed to find a remedy, I
will state what I have learned.
My son Robert living on the north
side of M;uina Kea at an elevation of
3,000 feet is running ono of tho larg
est poultry ranches .of chickens,
ducks and turkeys on these Islands.
A few-weeks ago he informed nio
that some of his chickens had been
afflicted with iho swell head and he
has administered to them anewmed-
icine and to his surprise and gratifi
cation, his chicks quickly recovered.
This good news encouraged me to
try tiiis medicine en my chicks, some
of which were badly afflicted with
sore head and blindness. I dosed
them some days ago and as they were
reported as getting better, 1 thought
but httlo about them uutil your
paper reached mo telling of Mr.
Jarcd Smith s endeavor to tinu a
Then upon examining my chicks I
was sure I saw one with a sorehead;
the rest were lively and kept so far
away I could not telL about them,
but 1 decided to doso them again m
the morning, when to my surprise, a
flock of about twenty that had been
badly afflicted with sorehead and
blindness a few days before were now
all clean and bright about their heads

This is the medicine:
Water made strong enough with
salt to float an egg, .heat and kept
hot while being used, to tho point of
burning one's finger if left in too long.
Now take the chick, young or old. If
blind remove the scabs from its eyes
nd the larger lumps from its bill,
then clip its wholo head uuder the
water. Don't leave it in long enough
to be iniured by the heat, rub the
head a moment with a rough rag,
and again put its head under the
water as at first, and let it go. The

ues to gap, and as the shock passes
off, it opens its eyes, jumps up and
runs away and in a few hours exhibits
more life than it had done for some
time. In about two days this doctor
ing should bo once repeated.
A neighbor having tried this medi
cine say: "If is not a sure tinng.'
Perhaps Mr. Smith being a practical
scientific man may be able to work
it up and let the wor.J know what
there is iu it. Tt is new here, and
