When this approval is secured it is

for growing different products, the

start in this work has been made by
the farmers themselves, but it is too
bi a job for individuals.
The low prices of pineapples, and
the uncertainty of this crop for the
future, has made the Haiku settlers
particularly anxious to find other
means of making s living from their
lands, so that the new demonstra

welcomed by them.

If the plans of the Hoard of Su
pervisors carry, and as there is no
opposition they probably will,
Wailuku will probably be more
elaborately decorated for the big
Civic Convention, to be held here
early in October, than ever before.
The Civic Convention Committee,
in a communication to the super
visors, this week suggested the
desirability of some action being
taken to put the town in fitting
trim to receive the big delegations
from the other Islands. Just what
will be done in the decorating line
is not yet decided upon, but it is
assured that it will be worth while
