Description of Varieties Which Hawaii
Experiment Station is Now Recom
mending and Distributing.
Continuing the description of the
various crops which have proven suc
cessful in the past few years at Haiku,
I'rof. F. O. Krauss, director of the
Hawaii experiment station sub-station
at Kuiahn, says of its leguminous for
age and green manuring crops
The Extension Division would en
courage in every way possible the ex
tensive culture of leguminous crops.
With Ibis in view a rather extensive
list of tested leguminous crops is of
fered for trial. (Note: See I!ul. No.
23. Haw. Exp. Sta. entitled "Legumin
ous Crops for Hawaii.")
Varieties "lilack Eye," "Clay." and
' Whip-roor-Will." These are heavy
seeding legumes of highei-t feeding
value. In comparison with grasses,
cow peas would be classed as by far
the most highly nutritious feed. Fed
alone it is a well balanced feed for
milch cows, work stock and swine. It
is a crop well adapted to inter-cropping
between corn and other hoed
crops, especially where its trailing
habit is not objectionable. The Plack
Eye is a heavy seeding variety of bush
form. Clav and Whip-poor-W ill are
trailing sorts well suited for forage or
grain. Cow peas are too valuable for
turning under as green manure.
Varieties: Bugal. or Black Maturius
and Brasilian. The Velvet liean is a
valuable forage crop as well as being
highlv prized for green manuring. It
is being extensively planted by men of
the Sugar riantations.
The Jack P,ean has come into pro
minence of late as a green manuring
crop. It Is especially well suited for
planting between growing cane, as it
produces a vigorous growth in dense
bush form. The average yield of fif
teen tons green matter per acre, if
turned under adds about flu-OO worth
of nitrogen to the soil. The crop is
practically immune to diseases and in
sect pests, and is tolerant of excessive
wet, dry or windy conditions. Unfort
unately the feeding value is low.
This is a comparatively new crop
to Hawaii. However, It gives promise
of becoming one of our most valuable
commercial crops. The seed is being
sought after by the Sugar Plantations
for green, manuring purposes. The
best fiber of Sann Hemp is said to be
equal to jute for sugar bag making
It. is possible that an impotant fiber
industry may be established when its
general culture is assured in the is
lands. In India the crop Is extensive
ly used as a forage.
Ten varieties mixed are offered. While
a somewhat less certain crop than the
preceding sorts,, this valuable legume
is nevertheless worthy of extended
trial. The ten best varieties out of
some sixty tested at Haiku have been
mixed and these will enable the grow
er to select those best suited to his
Tn following varieties of beans
which differ from the foregoing in
that they are cultivated chiefly as
food for man rather than for fodder,
for soiling crops or green manuring,
have been seleccd as the best from
among very extensive trials made at
Haiku during the past three years. Of
the Navy bean and the so-called
"Maui Red" several acres were grown
dining the past year with good suc
cess both in yield and marketing. The
remaining varieties here listed give
promise of becoming valuable com
mercial varieties also. All the varie
ties listed are adapted to field culture.
Kidney Deans, (bush form) Maui
Reds, Small White Navy, or Crystal
Wax; Lady Washington, Trailing var
ieties: Small White Navies; Red
Mexican; Pinks; Tepary, the latter a
remarkable drought resisting variety
is equal to the best "navies" for culi
Lima Ueans Burpees Bush Lima,
a standard large podded lima bean
succeeding well in the home garden.
Monstrous Lima Bean An extra
large-podded lime bean of trailing
habit. Described by the originator as
of bush form, but in our trials has dev
eloped a strong growth of vines.
Brutal Murder At Schofield.
G. M. George, a money lender, liv
ing at Schofield Barracks, was murd
ered within a few yards of his house,
on Tuesday night last week, and rob
bed of probably a large sum of money
on his person. The victim's skull was
crushed by a blow from behind. Jes
se Dukes, a negro civilian employee
of the post has been arrested on sus
picion of having committed the crime.
The Earth's Interior.
That the interior of the earth is In
tensely hot is proved by the increase
In temperature observed In deep mines
and in even deeper borings. It Is prov
ed also by the emission of lava, which
Is nothing more than molten rock, from
the craters of volcanoes. But the scien
tists, who maintain that the earth's In
terior Is not fluid but of the consistency
of steel, are probably correct Just the
same. Matter, when under great pres
sure, may be rigid even at enormously
high temperature. The interior rocks
of the earth uniy be heated to several
thousand degrees und still be solid.
When pushed up to the surfuce by vol
canic action and relieved from pressure
these solid, though superheated, rocks
would become immediately liquefied.
The practical deep well borers, who
find that their drills are softened by
the heat of the lower strata, have not
got the luugh on the theoretic savants.
Rev. Howard Harris
Dies In Los Angeles
Former Pastor of Kahului Union
Church Fails to Regain Health on
Coast. Many Maui Friends Grieve.
From Los Angeles came the word
this week that Rev. Howard Harris,
the former pastor of the Kahulul
Union Church died on January 12th,
and was buried on the 15th. The news
came as a great shock to the people
of Kahulul. and the friends of Mr.
Harris on Maul. Mr. and Mrs. Har
ris were dearly loved by all those who
knew them. The year they were on
Maui was long enough to make the
people here feel that they ought to
stay at Kahului Church permanently.
This was the plan of Mr. Harris when
he came. Ho was then in pretty good
health, though not as well as he had
been shortly before his arrival on
Maui. He had to be careful to his
diet for some little time past.
Upon leaving for the Coast Mr. Har
ris put. himself under the best expert
be could find at the Const for treat
ment. At first he seemed to steadily
improve, but in October friends of Mr.
Harris learned that he was weaker,
and in December his condition was
hopeless. His death was the result
of cancer of the stomach. Mrs. Har
ris has toward the end trained nur
ses to assist her in the care of her
Mr. Harris began his pastoral work
in New York State, where he was very
popular. When he made up his mind
to go to California a monster petition
from all the people in the town was
sent him, and he agreed to remain a
little longer. Two years later he went
west, and soon after went to Japan
as a missionary in educational work.
He made a strong place for himself
in the affections of the people, lie
came back once more to New York
State as a pastor, and then lea once
more for California where he became
a professor of English literature In
the University of the Southern Cali
fornia in the Oriental dpeartment. It
was this position he left for work on
Maui, and to this position he intended
to return in case his health ever per
mitted. Mr. and Mrs. Harris left behind
them a hot-t of friends, when they
Failed on the May Manoa last year.
They seemed to make people happier
wherever they went. They were wel
come In all homes on this Island. Mr.
Harris did some "remarkably strong
work in the ministers' meetings, and
was a constant inspiration to the
evangelists who came under his care.
He also had private work in English
for Japanese in Kahului. His special
work among the Japanese pastors of
Maui was a great help to them.
