I Things Being Done and Attempted in tbe Agricultural Field.
MARKET DIVISION REPORT.
Eggs and poultry in good demand.
especially young chickens. Very little
demand for laying stock.
The price of hogs Is advancing light
ly and the demand Is a little better
There should be a good demand Tor
luau pigs around the 11th of June. De
mand for beef and veal is good.
Canteloupes from Waimanalo are
coming Into the market in large ouan
titles and are meeting with ready Bale
at good prices. These canteloupes e.re
generally larger and have a flavor
equal to if not better than canteloupes
Imported from tbe mainland. In or
der to protect the fruit form the
melon-fly the Japanese farmers are
burying them In the sand. This gives
the canteloupe a blanched rind.
Ripe pineapples are again plentiful
and the price is ntilln. Offering of
green pineapples for shipment to the
mainland are pouring in and the ship
ments will be larger from now on.
Alligator pears are getting more
plentiful and some of the Oahu pears
are very good. Most of the pears be
ing received from Kona are watery
and bring low prices.
Due to the poor quality of imported
potatoes there is a good demand for
large, smooth-skinned island potatoes
small potatoes are hard to sell. .
The building to be used as the office
of the Division is now being remodel
ed and will be ready for use in a few
weeks. The salesroom will be ready
in about two months.
Big Results in Garden
Work by School Girls
Efforts Being Hade to Organize Garden
Clubs Here Young Gardener Tells
Of Her Success With Tomatoes.
For several years past the Depart
ment of Agriculture has been organ! z
ing garden and canning clubs among
the school children of the United
States which have aroused a great
amount of interest and enthusiasm,
Director J. M. Westgate, of the Ha
waii Experiment Station, is much in
terested in this work, and hopes to
see something of the kind started
among the school children of the Ter
ritory. A start in this direction has
already been made through the ef
forts of the vocational teachers of the
public schools, and by a number of
the regular teachers who see the
value of this kind of work to their
pupils. Prof. F. G. Krauss, superin
tendent of the experiment station's
extension work, is also much inter
ested in developing a knowledge and
liking for gardening among the chil
dren, and he already has a demonstra
tion garden of one-tenth of an acre
started on his Kuiaha place. He Is
contemplating offering a number of
prizes for this kind of work to the
children of Maul.
As an example of the results being
obtained by the department of agri
culture along this line, the following
furnished by the press bureau of the
department. Is of much interest:
Washington, D. C, April 10. Miss
Eloise Parsons of Clarlnda, Iowa, is
the young woman whose record in the
Department of Agriculture's garden
and canning clubs was the best of the
thousands made by members in the
33 Northern States. Miss Parsons
obtained a yield of 6318 pounds of to
matoes from her tenth-acre plat. Her
costs were $15.61, and her net profits
were $115.57. Her costs cover every
item of expense in raising the crop,
Including rent of land, her own time
(estimated at 1 Ocents an hour) fer
tilizers and Bprays. She describes
some of her difficulties in obtaining
this result as follows:
"I decided I would try and have ripe
tomatoes very early and so obtain
good prices for them: So in the lat
ter part of February I Dlanted the
early variety in three boxes which
I placed on a shelf in front of the
south windows of the dining room.
in a snort time they came throuch
and grew rapidly. But they began to
grow tall and spindly, so in the lat
ter part of March I transplanted part
of them into small pasteboard boxes,
one plant in each. By doing this I
could move them to the open without
disturbing the roots, and hindering
the development of the plants. Then
as soon as it was warm I set the
rest in a cold frame, four inches apart
each way. In the first of April I
planted the late variety in the hot
bed. Those in the cold frame and
in the pasteboard boxes developed a
great amount of roots and were very
strong, some In bloom, when I trans
planted them to the open on the 22nd
of May. The plants In the hot bed
oia not develop such strong roots.
and because of this fact, and also
that it was very dry, I lost quite a few
of -them when I transplanted them.
After filling in for the fourth time a
few vacant places still remained, as
it was almost impossible to get them
started because of the early drought.
in an i bad over 600 plants.
"I hoed them after each rain and
whenever I thought it necessary. As
we moved to this place this soring.
and the garden was not plowed in the
fall, many weeds were not destroyed.
ana I bad a very hard time keeping
the weeds down. The plants did not
grow very large, and as it continued
very dry, I decided it not best tc
stake the plants. The plants did no
make a very great growth and ver
few needed pruning. I hoed them
until the tomatoes began to ripen and
the plants were too large.
"I picked my first ripe tomatoes
the 9th of July. From then on the
pickings every two or three days grew
larger. At first I received ten cents
a pound, but soon the price began to
fall so that after the 1st of Septem
ber I received only two cents a pound,
As my father runs a dairy, he took
the tomatoes with him and sold them
very easily to the hotels, restaurants,
and milk customers. He was able
to sell almost all of them until the
green ones were gathered. As long as
we could get a dollar a bushel for
the tomatoes fresh and as we were
so very busy with the work of the
dairy, I thought it best not to can
"After school began I was kept very
busy in picking the tomatoes. For
several weeks it took me three even
ings of the week to get over the en
tire patch and often gatheied over
ten bushels. During the second and
third weeks of September we had so
much rainy weather that I could not
gather the tomatoes, and after the
rains they began to ripen so rapidly
that many of them split. On the 12th
and 13th of October I had to gather
the green tomatoes. I gathered 10SS
pounds. There was no sale for those.
We used all we could and I gave some
to the neighbors, and still a great
many went to waste, as the were wet
when they were gathered, and as it
turned warm again, they rotted very
fast. As we had a great deal of
company this summer, and because
our other vegetables were not as good
as usual, we used more tomatoes
"I made a collection of canned
fruits, vegetables, and meats, which
consisted of the following: tomatoes,
beets, white wax beans, green podded
beans, celery, carrots, pickled onions,
beet greens, pumpkins, shelled beans,
pears apples plums, peaches, cherries,
strawberries, raspberries, white and
purple grapes, sausage, chicken, corn,
watermelon pickles, and gooseber
ries. I exhibited this collection at the
State Fair and won a first, a second,
and a fourth on it and my other club
work, I did all this canning by the
cold packed, hot-water process. I also
canned, alone, 30 quarts of windfall
apple.i, ten quarts of gooseberries, six
pints of beans, 100 quarts of tomatoes.
I also helped with the canning of the
strawberries, cherries, peaches, to
mato butter and catsup, apple jellies
and goosebery jam.
"As to my other club work, I will
say that I was at Des Moines during
the State Fair, and helped to record
and care for the exhibits sent in by
club members. I also gave a canning
demonstration for the county teach
ars meeting at Clarlnda on the' 26th
of September. The demonstration
was held . in the Domestic Science
rooms at the High School building. I
took my own canner, tomatoes and
apples, and most of the other neces
sities, besides most of my collection
to show the different things one can
conserve by this method.
"As a summary I will state that my
expenses were $15.61 and my profit
$115.57, besides winning $23 in prizes
at the State Fair. I have enjoyed this
work, although it has been long and
sometimes a bit lonerome. It has
been a way by which I could not only
have my own spending money and
pay my expenses at the Farm Camp,
but I also have a bank account of
Another member of the Garden and
Canning Clubs in the Northern States,
whose work is worthy of special men
tion, is Miss Sara Dickinson of
Sharpsville, Pennsylvania. She won
first prize in her State with a record
of 4966 ponds on her tenth-acre. Her
costs were $12.33; her net profits,
$78.61. It is difficult to compare the
profits made by the various young
women in the garden and canning
clubs, as the market price of fresh
vegetables differs very widely in dif
ferent parts of the country, and a
member with a very good crop may
sometimes have to sell at a very low
price, because of prevailing market
