Want Hawaiian Woods.
Many of the finer grained and more
valuable varieties of wood grown on
the Islands have won a warm place
the hearts of cabinet-makers and
lovers of rare and valuable woods on
the mainland, and a steady and in
creasing demand for these woods is
Recently Brother Frank, princi
pal of St. Anthony Mission School,
Wailuku, who is something of an ex
pert in rare island woods, received
letter from a prominent manufao
turer of musical instruments in Cin-
cinati, asking for samples of the dif
ferent woods grown here. In res
ponse to this request, Brother Frank
has made a collection of thirty varie
ties, and will at once forward them.
The following are the varieties to be
sent: Koa, dark koa, light colored
koa, koa lau nui, kamani, white ka
mani, (umbrella,) mao, hau, olaa,
ohia lehua, sandal wood, kukui, ka
fnuuila, kou, (very scarce,) variety
ohia lehua, monkey pod, kolea,
scarce,) milo, (scarce,) lauhala. cof
fee, kopeika and kauila, (scarce.)
Some of these woods of rare value,
such as milo, kou, kauila and sandal
woods, are very scarce, while others
such as koa, ohia and kukui are found
reasonable abundance. But all of
the above woods grow on the Islands,
and in reforesting our barren plains
and hill sides, due attention should
be given to planting the more valua
One of the most valuable of these
is the milo, which grows into a hard,
fine-grained, pale rose colored wood,
taking an exquisite polish, and
adaptable to finishing where fancy
woods are wanted. There are seve-
al of these trees of good size now
growing at the Catholic Mission, the
wood of which, if properly prepared
for market, would be worth several
hundred dollars. These trees are
vearlv loaded with seed pods, the
seeds from which germinate quick
leyandinrank luxuriauce, so that
they have to be pulled up and thrown
away to keep the ground beneath
the trees clear. To illustrate the
value of this wood, Brother Frank
states that he was offered $20 for
Stick of one of these trees which he had
cut down, the stick being but little
over a foot in diameter and not much
more than six feet long. If the seeds
from these trees were all gathered
and planted on central Maui, the
value of their timber twenty years
from now would run up into the hun
dreds of thousands.
Sandal wood is better known, and
it is believed that, the government
is taking steps to reforest the is.
tetd& with this valuable wood. The
kou is another rare wood, soft and
dark brown when' polished, jt was
formerly much planted along the
sea cpasts, but has been nearly ex
terminated by the ravages of' i
moth, " . Kauila,' remarkable for close
gram, hardness and weight, grows
on drv slopes, and is still found in
considerable quantities on Kauai

Intelligent study of the habitat
the many rare woods which will grow
rhere, and energy m reforesting our
bare plains and hill sides with the
more valuable of these wood would
result at the end of the next twenty
years in adding millions to our na
tural resources, as well as increas
I ing greatly the annual rainfall.
