Two New Modern Dormitories Will

PRATICAL TRADES TO BE
An Institution of which Maul

Lahainaluna is making a new scop
towards a bright future and will with
its corps of capable toachers instil in
to tho Hawaiian youth the principles
of independence and advancement by
haying the practical knowledgo of a
practical trade or vocation.
With the completion of tho two new
dormitories, its ten buildings each one
of which will bo given up to a specific
purpose, will comprise Lahainaluna.
Through tho courtesy of Principal
McDonald a news representative was
shown over the spacious grounds, and
Each of tho now domitories will be
87 feet long and will have twenty-five
rooms. Each room will bo twelve

VPrincjpal McDonald hps happily
who are not oDly practical in their
various departments, but know how
to pleasantly instil into the pupils the
essential principles which permits of
the scholar, after graduation, step
ping into a shop, with perfect con.
fidonce of being fully capable ot hold
ing his own. All this is taught with
out the drilling being laborious on tho
teacher or irksome to tho pupil.
The various departments as now
assigned and the teachers for the
present school year are: Mechanical
drawing and carpentoring Prin.
Blacksmithing Mr. Dodds, Taro
planting-Mr. Solomon Fuller.Upland
Not only are the boys taught a pro
fitable vocation or trado, but they
aro also required to look after the
own clothing, do their own laundry
work and bake their own bread.
Auy Hawaiian youth who goes to
Lahainaluna with the determination
of storing up the knowledge there
taught him will come out fully cap
ablo of "hoeing his own row" and will
also bo a staff to his aged parents.
The now buildings will cost between
thirty-one and thirty-two thousand
dollars and under the supervision of
contractor Moody will be rushed to
completion so that additional scholars
may be kared for at tho earliest time

Maui, tho islands of Molokai,

WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T
Brother Matthias Discovers A
Fungus Which Deals Death to
This Dangerous Pest.
Tho Japanese beetle) which In
times past caused such havoc with
roses, valuable plants and other veg
etation in Hawaii, is rapidly being
exterminated, largely through tho
efforts of a Hilo scientist. Brother
Matthias of St. Mary's School, Hilo,
for tho past ten yettrs nils been act
ively engaged in the study of plant
life in the Hawaiian Islands and a
means for its preservation.
About soveu years ago a dead
caterpillar with a peculiar fungus
growth enveloping it was brought
to Brother Matthias for his examin
ation. It had been fonnd in Olaa by
Prof. Koebele, and its appearance
was tho sourco of considerable spec
ulation as to tho cause of its death.
With the aid of the microscope,
Brother Matthias soon discovered in
tho fungus growth attaching to the
caterpiller myriads of spores, or
eggs, which wero capable ot repro
ducing a similar fungus substance.
For three years he daily inoculated
and let go thousands of Japanese
beetles, which in turn spread the
disease, and beetles subsequently
captured In various parts of the isl
land have shown ovldences ot tho
fungus growth. He recommends
that the work bo carried on until
the Japaneso beetle exists no longer
in tho Hawaiian Islands. It is an in
sect dangerous to many other plants
besides flowers and roses, and is es
pecially injurious to the cocao, or
'koko plant, experiments in the
growing of which arc now being made.
Below is given the method adopted
by Brother Matthias for securing his
cultures and tho Inoculation of the
beetles, which he claims auyone can

about two hundred beetles in the box and
more if the box be considerably larger.
Be careful to put only live beetles into
the box, as dead beetles if sufficiently
numerous will cause corruption and ruin
your work. Give fresh food to the beetles
daily and take away whatever remains
from the'day previous. The best time to
plice the food in the box is during the
day, because then the beetles are mostly
hidden in the ground. If the box be
opened in the evening they will try to
escape. Valuable plant's need not be tax
ed for their food, for anyone may have
'noticed that even certain weeds are eaten
by them. The so-called honohono grass
is found in many places and beetles will
cnt it readily. Keep the lid of the box
well down. No special precaution need
be tuken about air holes, for the space be
tween the soil and the lid admits all the
air that the beetles require, Keep the
box clean and in a dry, shady place.
Among the beetles placed in the box
there will be found some already infected
with the disease, fqr the fungus which is
fatal to them has been widely spread dur
ing the past years and is far from being
Within a few days the infected beetles
will die. A white substance gradually
appears at the joints of the dead beetles.
This White substance is the fungus. The

to grow until the dead beetle is almost

all will have died and developed the

beetles. Fresh beetles placed in the box
for two or three days will become diseased
and should then be liberated so as to carry
the infection abroad. Liberate the beetles

come exhausted. Dead beetles having
developed the fungus may also be scat
tered about plants that have been attack
ed, or they may lie mixed with the soil
around those plants.
Beetles placed in the box for the pur
pose of inoculation will have to be fed, at
otherwise they will starre and cause cor
ruption. Beetles that die of the infection
do not cause corruption, They are as it
