WAILUKU, MAULH. T., SATURDAY. JULY 24, 1 909
The Remedy is a Simple
Judge S. P. Kingsbury has re
ceived n communication from the
Superintendent of Entomology re
lative to an infect post tlint is at
tacking corn and sorghum. We give
the letter in full below for the hone
fit of others who may ho interested.
A united effort on the part of these
who are interested in agriculture and
and horticulture would soon rid any
community of many insect pests.
In this connection it might he a
paying proposition for a nuinher of
interested persons to invest in a lent-
for fumigating trees.
The letter is as follows:
Judge S. B. Kingshury,
Your letter and specimens arrived
this morning. There is no question
about the identity of the pest; it is
the corn leaf-hopper (Peregrinus
maidis Ashm) so common here on
corn and sorghum. The specimens
represent all stages of growth, from
the newly hatched to the full grown,
winged form. Tn winter loaf-hoppers
assume a brachypterous or
short-winged form. But even then
they are quite capable of hopping.
The black hugs you have reference
to, I surmise, are aphis-another
common pest here on sorghum and
corn. Will he glad to get specimens
when you find them. As to reme
dies I recommend you apply ivory
soap solution prepared as follows:
heat a gallon of water until the
pound one of ivory soap is dis
solved; add 3 gallons of water and
apply warm, preferably with a spray
pump. Some of the grown hoppers
will probably escape your spray, but
it will have killed a majority of the
small ones, any way. Repeat the
application, if necessary. The earlier
in the life of the plant the first ap
plication is made the bettor it will
be as by so doing you will kill the
first brood of the pest. For hotter
protection you must of course secure
the cooperation of your corn and
sorghum growing neighbors in order
that they may not, by their inac
tivity, restock your plants from their
own. You might, therefore, find it
to advantage to publish this letter
in your local paper and thus bring
the suggestions offered herein to the
attention of a largo number of your
Very respectfully yours,
Superintendent of Entomology.

Hangs Himself But Is Cut
II. Wilson a part Hawaiian Ka
kaako resident attempted suicide at
Kahului Wednesday evening by
hanging himself by the nock in a
room of his house.
He was seen by his wife who gave
the alarm and police officer Manuel
Sequeira cut the rope by which he
was hanging and in a short time he
had recovered .
II. Wilson is the name of the
man. He was a resident of Kakaa
ko Honolulu until recently.
Shortly after coming to Maui he
secured work in Kahului. While
there it is reported that he struck a
boy without cause or provocation
and when the chief engineer Vaseon
cellos remonstrated with him for
striking a boy ho attacked Vascon
cellos and struck him two vicious
blows. Vaseoncellos finally got the
best of him and he was discharged.
He was not seriously hurt by his
swing but will probably not do much
rubber necking for a while.

soul, as per sentence
During the years when it was
not known where he was hiding or
whether he was still in Hawaii, or
in the land of the living, thoro
were frequent rumors as to his
whereabouts, but it remained for
Deputy Sheriff Ovorend to run in
to the escape last Tuesday at Ho
uokaa. Fujihara was sentenced to death
by Judge Little.
Deputy Sheriff Overend, at the
timo of the man's escape, was de
puty under Andrews. John and
Charles Moore were jailor and de
puty jailer, respectively, and lost
their positions as a result of the
escape, the prisoner practically
walking out of prison.
Since the sentence of death was
not carried out on the day and
date when it was ordered, the ques
tion arises whether or not Fujiha
ra can be executed, for legally he
is already dead.
Ho has been brought to Honolu
lu for safe keeping until it is settled
when or whether ho actually dies.

They claimed that tho Japanese

plantation, using foul language
