FARMING AND FARM PROGRESS
Things Being Done and Attempted in the Agricultural Field.
Vegetables are plentiful due to the
recent rnlnq and the scarcity of the
melon fly. Large quantities of toma
toes are eonitng on the market and are
Felling at the lowest price In ninny
years, less than one cent a poujd.
Now is the time for all cood house
wives to buy for canning. Large
quantities are being dumped.
Cucumbers are very plentiful and
cheap. Watermelons seem to be only
slightly attacked by the melon-fly this
year. The prices now asked make it
possible for nearly everybody to cat
watermelon. Muskmelons of Tory
good size and flavor continue to come
in from Waimanalo. The friiit Is not
infested with the fly and has as good
a flavor as those imported fiom Cali
fornia. Island potatoes of good si7.o and
quality are selling well due to ihe
scarcity of good imported stock.
A Cannery Mystery.
Larger quantities of fresh pineap
ples will go to the mainland from now
on. As long as pineapples shipped to
the Coast net growers more than $7
a ton, the price offered small grow
ers by the canneries, it will be a
question of markets for the fruit and
not of getting fruit to ship. Unless
the cost of producing a ton, of pines
has been about cut in half of what it
has been up to last year, it is hard
to nee how any cannery company can
afford to put in several hundred acres
of new land in this fruit and at the
same time refuse to buy at a price
admittedly below the cost of produc
tion. Glut In Honey.
The conditions of the honey marl:et
has not improved in the least. It is
estimated there are now on hand 10,
000 cases of honey with the prospect
of a total of more than 25,000 cases by
the end of this season. Due to the
Euiopean war no honey nas hern ex
ported since last August. The situa
tion Is a grave one for the men. If
stockmen of Hawaii could be induced
to feed a limited amount of honey in
addition to the present ration it is
likely that the whole crop could be
used here in Hawaii. Some of the
large growers should donate enough
honey dew to carry on experiments
In co-operation with different kinds

SIMPLE REMEDY FOR HEN FLEA.
The troublesome poultry pest km. wn
as the hen flea, and which was inVo
duced Into some parts of Maul a yeai
or more ago, is the subject of a paper
recently issui d by Prof. .1. P. llling
worth, cf tho College of Hawaii. Prof.
Illinsworth has found that ' e insect
Is particularly susceptible to damp
ness, and 'ias 1een able to almost era
dicate the pest at the college by sim
ply washing down the dropping
boards and (loo of the hen houses
dully with a hose. He also recom
mends that dusting places and othnr
dry places where the chivkens ron
tregate, be Thoroughly dampened at
least once a week. The iir estimator
discovered that the, English sparrow
also harbors the pest, and believes
that it is frequently spread through
WILL COMBAT COTTON PEST.
August Dufck. a government ento
mologist, arrived this week in Hono
lulu direct from Washington, and will
spend five months in the Islsnds. His
chief work will be to find if possible
some moans of combatting the pink
boll worm, which nipped in the bud
a most promising industry just as it
was getting started in these islands.
If this pest can be controled, as seems
very likely, Hawaii is likely to take
a prominent place in the production or
the finer grades of this staple.
Assessor of the County of Maui notice
of the fact that such motor car has
been registered, or re-reglsteied, the
registration number thereof, and the
exact weight therof."
