Depend on Maul Horses.
Plans for tho Fourth of July event
occupied most of tho time of tlio
meeting, a number of radical changes
in policy being decided upon. One of
these was that henceforth no race
shall ho arranged which will be
dependent solely upon outside entries.
In other words, tho success of tho
meet Is not to depend in any degree
upon other than Maul owned horses.
Invitations are to be extended as
usual to outside horsemen, but their
coming or going will not bo allowed in
any Benso to interfere with tho pro

Prof. Krauss Purchaser of Valuable
Property To Be Devoted to Prac
tical Demonstration Farming Big
Asset For Kuiaha Community.
The W. R. Patterson homestead at
Kuiaha has been purchased by Prof.
F. G. Krauss, now of tho Collego ot
Hawaii, but who will bo connected
with the federal experiment station
after tho first of February. Mr.
Krauss has already taken possession
of the property, which he expects to
devote exclusively to practical dem
onstration work for tho benefit of the
homesteaders In tho district. The
price paid was $5000.
A good deal of Interest centers In
tho transfer of this property. It marks
the first failure among tho home
steaders of tho Haiku district? while
at tho same time tho price of $5000
paid, or about $100 per acre, indicates
high faith on the part of Prof. Krauss
in tho future of the community. Tho
purchase is made by Mr. Krauss per
sonally, and not on behalf of tho gov
ernment. Mr. Krauss Is already a
homesteader in the same tract.
Mr. Patterson, who left Maul sev
eral months ago, was one of tho first
settlers In the Kuiaha section, and
was entitled to a patent on 7il3 land
at tho time he left. Tho lot is one
of tho best in tho section, and has
been practically all cleared, and lias
some 15 or 20 acres bearing pine
apples. It was these pineapples that
were mosl largely responsible tor
Patterson's failure, the low price "of
tho fruit last year, together with Im
passable roads, causing him a very
heavy loss which will scarcely more
than bo met by the purchase price
of tho land.
Prof. Krauss, in his new capacity,
will devote his time exclusively to
demonstration work along diversified
linos for the benefit of the farmers
of tho territory.
