FARMING AND FARM PROGRESS
Things Being Done and Attempted in the Agricultural Field.
Use Lime on Haiku
Soil Says Krauss
Most Crops Cannot Do Their Best
Without Lime Treatment Not Ex
pensivePineapples Apparently an
Exception to Rule.
Thnt Ihe soils of Haiku are gener
ally deficient in lime, is the asser
tion of Prof. Krauss, of the Hawaii
experiment station. Prof. Krauss
states tbat the unwillingness of le
gumes and some other crops to .do
well In Haiku is undoubtedly due tc
tht.-j cause. This Is particularly notice
able just at present in connection with
the considerable acreage of Maui red
beans planted in the Kuiaha distrVt.
which are not growing as tlxy should
In a number of instances where lime
has boen used, the difference is very
marked. Mr. Krauss has also shown
that a judicious liming greatly im
proves the soil for onions in the dis
trict. That the trouble can be remedied nt
comparatively small cost is indicaied
however, from the fact that hydrated
lime of excellent quality for The pur
pose, can be secured from the Mnyl
Agricultural Store at $8 per ton. A
ton of this to the acre is recommend
ed. Besides supplying the deficiency in
the soil, the lime in many instances
serves to correct the acidity common
to many new lands before lliey have
had time to become well areated.
Pineapples, however, do not appear to
suffer from this lack of lime, or from
HEAVY SPOILAGE IN FRESH
Not very encouraging was the re
port received from the first shipmen
of fresh pines made to the cowst by
the Kuiaha homesteaders, someth'ng
near one-third of the shipment being
lost. Returns from the second ship
men have rot yet arrived. It is esti
mated that even with the loss just
noted, the shippers made about as
much as they would have made In sell
ing, to the canneries. No shipment
way made by last week's Lurline, on
account of the interference of tli ! con
gressional party with things at Hai
ku. It is hoped, however, to secure
better results in the future, as more
experience is gained.
Marketing Division to
Have Branch on Coast
After the first of July the Market
ing Division will have a representa
tive on the Coast, according to a let
ter recently received from Superin
tendent Longley. He says: "We will
have an experienced man in San Fran
cisco to look after shipments nnd
build up a fresh fruit trade for Ha
waiian pineapples throughout the
States. We do not, of course, expect
to do wonders the first year, but we
hope to get the machinery in work
ing order, so that next year a great
many more tons can be marketed.
"Most of our shipments to the
Coast have reached in very good con
dition. Only once in a great while
does a shipment show any spoilage
and no shipment to date has netted
the producer a profit of less than $7
a ton. One shipment netted an Onhu
man between $:;o and $35 in the field."
Better Prices for Small Pines
The price of pineapples will bo 'ow
for at least another year. This is now
accepted among the growers. But
Maui producers seem to bo somewhat
better off than those of Oahu. Here
the price that the canners will ray
for seconds has been raised from $5.60
to $8.00, while growers without con
tracts on Oahu are glad to get this
figure for firsts. The Maui prise for
first giade remains $11.25. So far as
can be learned here, the canners have
not made any extensive sale of their
coming pack, eo that the contract ar
rangement with the home ateaders, by
which they are to be paid on the basis
of the price made on May 1, seems
to have slipped a cog. In fact Ihe
homesteaders do not know how the
price they are being offered was ar
rived at. Inasmuch as the excessive
rains last summer seriously damaged
the plants, and as a consequence
there will be an unusually heavy pro
portion of small fruit, the raising of
the price of seconds will be much appreciated.

PINEAPPLE DISEASES INTEREST
H. L. Lyon, pathologist of the Su
gar Planters' experiment station, who
was on Maul last week, expressed
much interest in some of the pine
apple diseases troubling the growers
in some parts of the territory. He has
already made some study of the wilt
diseases on Kauai and Oahu, but
which is not believed to be present on
this i.dand. Prof. Krauss, superin
tendent of the federal experiment feia
tion's extension division, is much grat
ifled at Mr. Lyon's interest, which
may be of immense value.
F. F. BALDWIN'S FINE PERCHE
RONS. By the Lurline last week, two mig
nificenl Percehron stallions arrived
at Maul from the coast and are now
In quarantine at Camp 1. They are
the property of Manager Frank 'Bald
win, of Puunene, and were purchased
by him during his recent tiip. One
of the animals was imported from
France, and the other, although Am
erican bred, is scarcely less worthy.
It is claimed by horsemen who hnvc
seen the animals that they are prob
ably two of the finest draft animals
ever brought to the Islands.
Dr. J. II. Raymond left for Hono
lulu last, evening to attend a meeting
of the Territorial land board, of which
he is a member.
AUTO DRIVER FINED $50.
Fuji, a Japanese chauffeur of La
haina, was fined $50 or. Thursday, by
District Magistrate John Brown, Jr.,
on conviction of heedless and furious
driving. The driver ran over a small
Hawaiian boy, painfully, but not dan
erously, injuring him.
L. Hubert and Kiyonaga, both auto
mobile drivers of Lahaina, were found
not guilty of a like charge, by Judge
Brown. The two were recently ar
rested after theii cars had collided
at a Lahaina street corner.
