PRACTICAL CO-OPURATIO X
It i a matter of congratulation that, as now seems likely, the
icTl'li" growers of the llaiku district will he ahle to arrive at an
;.-nic;.h!e and thorouulilv satisfactory agreement with the packing
...mi-anies lor the hati.U'inj; of their product. The apparent willingness
, : the packer- to concede ihe rii;ht of growers to a fair share ot the
, H.iit. of the business is especially Srati tying. The past two years have
hceii hard ones for the farmers, who have umuestionaUy lost heavily,
v.i.iir the canneries, in spite of low prices for the finished product.

W hether or not the basic figures for the contracts which will
probablv be entered into, have been accurately worked out, may be
(...en to some question, but the principle is eminently right, and by
tar the most fair and scientific of anything of its kind that has probably
excr been attempted in Hawaii. It also has the merit that as errors

lian.ing fire for months on account
of i lie dillicully in finding a suitable
site for lhe reservoir. When every

that lhe character of the base material

KAHULUI RAILROAD CO'S
WHY HIGH GRADE STOCK IS
A GOOD INVESTMENT.
Washington. March- : That it pays
to raise good stock is illustrated by
the experience of two Utah ranchmen
who sent their steers to the same mar
ket on the same day. Iioth ran their
stock on National Forest range under
grazing permits, both used the same
amount of range per head of stock,
and both paid the same grazing fee.
One gave close attention to the select
ion of his breeding cows and used only
high-grade bulls. The other made no
effort to improve his herd. The owner
of the high-grade stock received $10
per head more for his steers than the
owner of the common stock.
Experts believe it is possible to in
crease the output of the ranges Mil.
Btantially through improved methods
of utilization One of the most prom
ising of these methods is to increase
the average weight of the animals
turned off by improving the grade of
stock on the ranges. The thorough
bred eats no more grass than the
scrub, weighs more pounds when fat
and sells for a higher price, without
I putting any additional burden on the
i range itself. The same arguniei.
of course holds good with hoys, only
perhaps in greater degree.
