Grasses That Have
Experiment Station Has Tested out
Some Valuable Varieties and Is
now Distributing to Farmers
In connection with the seed distri
butlon being made by the Hawaii ex
perlment station, through its Haiku
sub-station, at the present time, the
following description of various gras
ses which have proven successful
should be of interest. The seed of
these grasses are available by apply
ing to F. G. Krauss, superlntenden
in charge of the station ai Haiku
Forage and Pasture Grasses.
A commendable interest is being
shown by our farmers and stockmen
in the introduction of new grasses
The Hawaii Experiment Station has
done much to encourage the planting
of new varieties. The following brief
list covers well tested varieties which
are recommended for trial by those
not yet being familiar with them
(Note: See Bui. No 30, Haw. Agri
Exp. Sta. entitled "Grasses and For
age riants of Hawaii." The Hawaii
Experiment Station at Honolulu has
established an extensive grass gar
den where a good idea may be obtain
ed of the characteristics of a large
variety of economic grasses.)
Few grasses, either for soiling or
pasture have met with greater favor
than this new grass. It is closely re-
lated to Johnson Grass, but is devoid
of the underground stems so difficult
to eradicate In the latter variety. It
yields five or more cuttings per an
num and produces a succulent and
palatable forage suitable for all kinds
of stock. At Haiku an original plant
ing has persisted into its third year,
Under conditions favorable for curing
it may be made into an excellent hay.
It Is doubtless well suited for silage,
As a soiling crop it should be planted
in rows two to three feet apart like
sorghum. It responds to frequent cul
tivation. Likewise to Irrigation dur
ing the drier seasons of the year. It
will pay to manure or fertilize after
the first year. Five to ten pounds
seed will be required to plant an acre
when sown In drills. If wanted for
hay or pasture close drilling or broad
casting at the rate of two to twenty
pounds of seed to the acre is desirable.
The crop should be cut when in the
"milk stage." If left until it is too
mature it may rust badly and the
vitality of the plant be lowered.
Uba or Japanese Cane.
This is a small stemmed true sugar
cane. It thrives especially well at
Haiku and has yielded heavy crops
of palatable forage suitable for cattle,
work mules and horses. The cane
should be cut three or four times per
annum to avoid stems becoming too
hard for mastication. When shred
ded the stock will eat the entire plant.
Recommended especially for wet,,
windy locations. When once estab
lished it requires little car although
It responds to deep and thorough cul
tivation. The cane cuttings should be
planted end to end in the bottom of
shallow furrows four or five feet
Giant Bermuda Grass.
This is comparatively a new grass
arflf was recently introduced by the
Hawaii Experiment Station from Flo
rida. It may be termed a very large
type of Bermuda Grass, our common
"Manienie." While it is much coarser
and ranker growing than the common
Bermuda it is much relished by all
kinds of live stock including horses,
mules, cattle and, swine. It will out
yield common Manienie three to five
times under like conditions. While
primarily a pasture grass it gives
promise of producing a valuable hay
under conditions where it can readily
be cured. It should not be planted
where it is likely to become a pest
as it spreads rapidly. It is less tena
cious than Manienie because of its
fewer and coarser stems. Plant the
roots or cuttings three by three feet
or more apart. It will carpet the
ground within two or three months
when conditions are favorable. It
then assumes an upright growth and
may be pastured or cut for hay with
in six months after planting.
Doubtless one of the best pastures
grasses ever introduced into Hawaii.
While not a new grass to Hawaii
stockmen, it deserves a wider distri
bution than exists at present. The
difficulty often experienced in starting
the grass from seed has induced the
Extension Division to distribute roofs
trom which the grass may easily bo
established. Especially suited to wet
districts. It responds to a high state
of fertility and tillage. Under such
treatment it makes a splendid soiling
crop and is much relished by young
sloe. It is a typical bunch grass and
should be planted from 2 by 2 to
5 feet apart.
Great Game Brings
Victorv to Saints.
Chinese Lose Championship By
Narrow Margin. Final Came Was
The special series for the champion
ship of the first scries ended last
Sunday with the Saints claiming the
victory. The game was the most ex
citing one of the series and the fans
of both teams were up in the air most
of the time.
Manager Sain Alo sent his "Celes
tial Hopes" up to bat first but Sterling
found their weak points and. they
were handed blanks during the 1st
2nd and 3rd Innings.
The Saints hHd no better success
during the 1st and 2nd at the hands
of Milling, the slabnter from I'uuko
lii. but during the 3rd. Akekipi hit
sale and reached third on errors of
first and second basemen. Catcher
Antone 'Taakal" then let a ball pass
while Abe scored first run for the
Both teams failed to do anything
in the 4th. But in the f.th for the
Chinese. Miner hit safe for a two-bagger
to rightfleld and then scored from
third when Equing sacrificed. This
tying of the score put the backers of
both teams on their feet and excite
ment was at fever heat in the grand
stand and bleachers. Both teams
again blanked during the 6th; but
J. Enos walked for the Chinese in the
7th, and reached 2nd and 3rd on a
wild throw of Catcher Pomba, and
scored on Kaoni's grounder. In their
half of the 7th, Pomba of the Saints
scored when Kaoni tried to play rings
around the initial sack on Sterling's
grounder. Catcher Antone "Paakai"
then got rattled and allowed F. Cor-
rea to score from third on a passed
This proved fatal to the Chinese
who unable to change the situation in
the 8th and 9th and lost the game by
the close score of 3 to 2.
The second series will be open next
Sunday with the Waikapus and St.
Anthonys up for the first game at 1
p. m., and the Chinese and Asahis for
the second at 3 p. m.

How Yucetan Gets Its Water.
In Yucatan the people depend for
ihelr water Btipply clilefly on what are
known as "cenotes," or subterranean
reservoirs, fed by hidden underground
lakes or a network of water courses.
Some of these are so near the surfaco
that tho soil hns given way and left
a surface pond or reservoir; others
again are reached only by powerful
pumps or a system of ladders by
which the women descend into enor
mous caverns or traverse narrow gal
leries to fill their jars from the hidden
springs, and in some cases tho en
trance to thoso deep enverns is a con
siderable distance from tho nearest
villago or farm. Sometimes a crust of
rock If left over such a "cenote," with
an aperture through which the day
light reaches the cavern, forming a
real grotto, with stalactites and sta
lagmites of considerable beauty.
Nearly all of the ancient cities and
modern towns and haciendas are locat
ed near some one of these subterranean
water caverns. Charles Wlnslow nail
In National Magazine.
Was It For Him?
Blithers and Smltbcrs were neigh
bors. They were friends before they
became neighbors. The enmity started
by Blithers' boy pushing Smithers' kid
off a high picket fence and nearly
breaking his young neck. Then Smith
ers killed four of Blithers' chickens.
After that they glared at each other
Uko a couple of horso thieves.
Blithers hired a colored man to mow
his lawn. Rastus threw the grass over
tho fence into Smithers' yard.
"Hey, youl" yelled SraitAers. "What
In thunder are you doing?"
"Das foh yo' inool, mister," he smiled.
"Mulel" roared Smithers. "I ain't got
"Ain'teha?" ho gasped. Then ho
scratched his head. "Das. funny," he
added. "Do gemman what lib here say

Too Many Books In 1600.
In bewolllng the fnct that too many
books are published Mr. Ilelnemann re
echoes a complaint made over three
centuries ago. Bnrnaby Rich, In his
preface to "A Now Description of Ire
land," published in 1000, writes: "One
of tho diseases of tlds ago Is tho multi
tude of books that doth so overcharge
the world that it Is not able to digest
tho abunduueo of idlo matter that is
every day hatched and brought into the
world, that aro as divers in their forms
as their authors be in their faces. It is
but a thriftless and thankless occupa
tion, this writing of books. A man
were cci talnly better to sit singing In a
cobbler's shop, for his pay is certainly
a penny a pntcht But n book writer, If
he get sometimes a few commenda
tions of the Judicious, ho shall bo sure
to reap a thousand reproaches of the
malicious." Loudon Chronicle.
A Masterpiece In Fragments.
Dr. Ohnefaiscb-Rlchtcr, tho famous
antiquariun, writing in the Tall Mall
Magazlno on tho ancient civilization of
Cyprus, describes the cbanco discovery
or a vaso of tho fourth century B. O.
which ranks as ono of tho finest exam
pies of ancient art ever found. "It first
escaped tho eyes of my workmen alto
gether," he writes, "when I accidental
ly found a single fragment In tho earth
dug out of a tomb. After a good bab
sheesh had been promised for each de
livered fragment I succeeded in finding
tho wholo vuso with tho exception of
one small bit and in gluing together
with my own hands the 6lxty-elght
pieces aud thus obtained tho master
piece of art" Today It has a placo of
honor In tho British museum among
the collection of Attic vases of the best
Java's Teak Forests.
Teak forests in Java cover 1.4S0.00O
ecres, and, as the area reforested Is
two and a half times as large as tho
area felled in a given time, this magni
ficent stock of timber Is continually
Increasing. A pest of the Java toak
plantation is alang grass (luiperata
aruudlnacae). Iu order to prevent tho
Incursion of this plant, as hoeing Is too
expensive, the forestors sow a legu
minous plant, luecenn glauea, between
the rows of teak seedlings. This chokes
the alang, keeps tho soli cleun and en
riches the soil in humus and nitrogen,
and ultimately disappears with tho In
crease of the forest cover.
