The Committee in charge of the
Moose Kona Storm dance has decided
upon March 4 as the date on which
the Dance will be held at the Paia

been changed so that the charge for
gentlemen will be 75 cents and ladies
25 cents. Some surprises are in store
for those who attend. It has leaked
out that the place will look like a
deserted forest right after a heavy
Kona. In any event the committee
has gone eo far as to advise those
who attend to be sure and bring a
long umbrellas as it might possibly
rain even within the building.

The U. S. department of agriculture i

First Produce a home gardoi:,
the year round, paying special atten
tion to a plot of Irish or sweet pota
toes sufficient to supply the family
with food of this character.
Second. Produce the corn neces
sary to support all the people on the
farm and the live stock, with absolute
Third. Produce the necessary
oats and other small grain to supple- j
mcnt the corn as food. I
Fourth. Produce hay and forage '
from some forage crop, sufficient to

Fifth. Produce the meat neccs-
sary to suddIv the neonle. throuirh in-

Sixth. After all these things have 1
been amply provided for, produce cot-1

Not a'l of this is applicable literal
ly to Hawaiian conditions, but tho
general idea of it certainly is. Supply
tho needs of the farm family and the
stock from the farm Itself as far as
possible. A farmer's net income is
the difference between what he pays
for what he buys and what he gets
for what he sells. He can "make mon

to buy, as by having more to sell a

OMENS IN BASEBALL.
A Manager"! Method of Turning a Su
perstition to Account.
Writinjj en baseball mntters in the
New York Tribune, John J. MeGraw
has this to say about tho superstitions
of the players:
"1 recognize the superstitions of ball
players. For example, back lu 1004,
when Bowermnn was with the team,
he came to mc one day nml said:
" 'As I caino In today I saw a team
of white horses driving past tho Polo
grounds. That's n good sign. Watch
me kill the ball this afternoon.'
"He did. The belief in his supersti
tion bad given him confidenre. Bow.
erman spread tho tidings of the white
horses around the clubhouse. The next
day somebody else saw the whito
horses, so tho day after. By the end)
of tho week tho entire tcntu was hit
ting like a house on fire. They nil
lleved in the superstition, and it gave
them confidence. One day my short
stop, Dnhlen, remarked:
" 'Funny those white horses always
happen to drive past the ball park
Just when we are coming into tho
clubhouse. It's certainly lucky.'
"I heard him and couldn't keep back
n smile. On the day Bowermnn told
mo ho had seen tho horses I made up
my mind that everybody else would
seo them ns long as it helped their
butting. So I engaged, a man to drive
past tho Tolo grounds every day. That
is a fact, and it shows the lengths to
which a manager will go to cuter to
ball players' superstitions."
Showing What a Genius Can Do With
The great English chemist Dalton
was n schoolteacher. He worked with
out a laboratory and with crude ap
paratus, mostly made by himself from
simple materials. Here is an example
described in his own words:
"Took tin nle glass of a conical fig
ure, two and a half inches in diameter
nnd three inches deep; filled it with
j wnter that had beeu standing in tho
I room and consequent ly of tho tempera-
ture of the air nearly; put the bulb of
the thermometer to the bottom of the
i glass, the scale being out of the water,
Then, having marked the temperature,
I put the redhot tip of the poker half
nn Inch deep in the water, holding it
there steadily for half a minute, and
as soon ns It was withdrawn I dipped
the bulb of a sensible thermometer
into tho water, when it rose in a few
seconds to ISO degrees."
IIo thou determined the temperature
of the water at the bottom after five
minutes, after twenty minutes and aft
er an hour and found that It roso grad
ually from 47 to 52 degrees. This sitn
plo experiment proved that water has
tho power to conduct heat, which had
been denied by no less nn authority
than Runiford. Youth's Companion.
The Conscientious Chinese Child.
Ono of our missionaries, writing of
a little girl in the school under her
care, says: "Last night Wall Noo told
me she wanted to be 'a whole Chris
tian,' as she called it. So we had a
long talk nnd tried to think of all the
wrong we had done that day and con
fess it to each other. She counted
these wrongs on her fingers: 'I did

with ono of the girls nt school: I did
not use my soap when I took my bath;
I did not try to do my example in

Poetry and Punctuation.
In his poem "Narcissus" Robert
Bridges, the English poet laureate, has
banished tho comma entirely, so that
a procession of adjectives may be tak
en, at the reader's option, ns separate
qualities or as qualifying each other.
Thus ono may call his hero "almighty
wondrous" or regard him us being
both. Mr. Bridges' principles of punc
tuation are not obvious. He loves the
exclamation mark, using it five times
in tho twenty-eight lines of the poem,
nnd sprinkles dashes about with prod
igality. He adopts the colon and does
not slight tho interrogation mark,
whllo using now and then a full stop.

Fancy Prices Now
fcggs More Plentiful- Corn Takes
Jump Vegetables Generally In De
mandPork Still Low.
HONOLULU, Feb. 21, 1916
The price of green vegetables dur
ing the past week has been higher
than at any time to date. Cabbage
sold for as high as 4 cents a pound
and cucumbers for f 1.00 a dozen. The
cucumbers were of a poorer quality
than those that sold for 15 cents a
dozen a few months ago.
ihc price of eggs has dropped
considerably due to heavy receipts
n is probable that there will be no
further lowering of the price till after

there are several hundred cases of

there will be demand for large quan
tities of green vegetables, but it is
probable that the supply will be short,

Papains are in demand at one and

Aeroplane Mail Routes
Tho ambitious city of Hilo which
is hoping for an aerial mail service
between the island of Hawaii and Ho
nolulu may take courage from the fact
that the postofflce department is seri
ous'y considering adopting tho aerial
scheme of mail delivery in many parts
of the States. It is interesting also to
note that no less a personage than Dr.
Alexander Graham Bell has come for
ward as a most enthusiastic advocate
of the plan.He declares that satisfact
ory aerial delivery is entirely feasible,
and points out that in event of war
such routes might prove of the great

of Its most important improvements
being in the matter of its stability.
In other words.from a risky contriv
ance it has been develoned into a ma

Owing to the great SDeed of the
aeroplane, two trips a day between
Hilo and Honolulu would not be an Im
possibility, while a daily service each
way would bo a simple proposition.
It seems to us that it is only a
question of time when all of the mail

capacity as governor and commander-
in-chief of the national guard of Hawa
ii: "I believe it the duty of every phy
sically and mentally fit male employe
of suitable age, of the government to
join the national guard of Hawaii.
That present members may be en
couraged, I desire the heads of de
partments, where vacancies exist or
occur, to give preference to members
of the national guard, according as
opportunities for skilled and unskilled
ibor exist. Heads of departments
will see to it that the above employ
ment policy is carried out." We would
