Our Big Brown Jug.
There's a big brown jug,
Lugging big, dark jags,
That jogs our board highway.
The "jug is enclosed
In wickervork lugs,
But its jags are unjugged every day
This big stone jug.
With its drugged jags.
Jogs along our goverment road.
At the "blind pigs'" haunts
Its jaga decants,
The Jug on jagger unloads.
The jagger Jogs home
Lugging of jags from the jug,
And beats his wife, as of old.
Than t Vi o inriTar rrnta tnrrtroH
In the district jail,
While the jug jogs home full of gold.
The un-jagged tax-payer
Juggles court costs,
And feeds the jugged jag's wlfo
And jogs his brain
'T It's Jagged and sore
But can't understand for his life
Why the jug with jags
Should his roads jogs
Drugging jaggers to jugged.
While he keeps juggling
And lugging cash
To pay for juggling the drugged.
This jugging of jags
Is a jug-handle game
With the profits all in the jug
That big brown jog,
That drugged jags
la its wickerwork basket lugs.

FARMING AND FARM PROGRESS
Things Being Done and Attempted in tbe Agricultural Field.
Many Beans In Kuiaha.
Some twenty or more of the KuK
aha farmers have planted from one to
five acres of the Kula red bean this
spring, and more would probably have
been planted except for scarcity of
seed, and the dissuasion of Prof.
Krauss, who urges conservation in
taking up this new crop in the dis
trict. The beans have started nicely
and if the season continues favorable
an excellent yield Is indicated.
Onion Price Low.
The division has secured the army
contract for 30,000 pounds of Island
onions to be delivered during the
month of May. The contract price of
two cents a pound is less than half
that received by the division from
the army for the same month last
Producers who have onions for sale
should get in communication with the
division as soon ns possible. The
onions to be furnished must be of a
good size and well cured. The onions
furnished by some of the producers
last year caused the division a great
deal of trouble through not being up
The condition of the onion market
in Honolulu is very weak and the
prospects for its improvemept In the
near future are not bright. Onions
sent to the coast have brought very
low prices due to an oversupply of
Eggs Getting Scarce.
During the past week eggs have
been getting scarcer and the price
has advanced. It is likely that the

Provide Plenty of Water.
The poultry must have plenty of
water. A thirsty hen will lay no
