WEEKLY MARKET LETTER
Since the Boys' Industrial school
has been putting up its butter in neat
waterproof packages and sending the
Division a uniformly good product, the
demand has exceeded the supply, li
the other producers will put up as
good an article in as neat a package,
they will have no trouhle disposing of
their butter at at least 40 c a lb. One
butter maker on Molokai has already
requested the Division to get him the
cartons and a mould.
The receipts and the consumption
of eggs seems to be stationary. It is
expected however, that the price will
Due to large importations of chick
ens from the coast the market is not
in good condition as it should be.
There is very good demand for broil
ers of the heavier breeds.
String beans are plentiful and hard
to dispose of. This is generally the
condition that follows a period of high
prices such as were received during
the past winter months. The price of
cabbage is still up but California cab
bage will be more plentiful shortly
and the price is likely to drop. There
is good sale for new potatoes at 3 c
a pound for the larger sizes. All pro
ducers having potatoes on hand will
do well to shin them as soon ns possi
ble as the price is sure to drop when
the California crop comes In. Ship
pers should grade their potatoes ac
cording to size.
There are some very good alligator
pears coming into the market now
and ni'lceS fire Tlinro nincnnnl.lA
Crapes are plentiful and now is the
ume lor Housewives to buy them in
quantity for .lolly making at a reason
able price. There are practically no
limes in the market now and ship
ments would meet a ready sale.
All those who intend to plant on
ions this coming September should
make arrangenunts now for getting
their seed. The I)iv:sion would like
to place its order as soon as possible
to insure getting good seed.
The pales of the retail vegetable de
partment, and the retail butcher shop
of the Division have been very satis
factory and it is hoped that after the
first month's sales are in, the Division
will be nble to give xo producers a
little better than the market price
for their meat, and still save the
consumer who is willing to pay cash
and carry his package home enough
to make it worth while to patronize

the community. The new man is Earl

Hughes - Walker
One of the prettiest church wed
dings that has occurred on Maui was
that or Miss Alice Thayer Walker

took place at the Paia Union Church
on last Monday evening.
Incidentally, it is probablv the last
marriage that will ever be performed
in that-edifice, as the old building is
to be razed next week to make room
for a beautiful new memorial struc
ture. Following the ceremony at the
church a short reception was held at
the home of the bride's parents Mr.
and Mrs. E. J. Walker of Taia, and
later the happy young couple broke
away from the showers of congratulat
ions, well-wishes and rice, and were
driven to Bahaina, where they boarded
the boat for Honolulu, there to take
the Manoa for a several months trip
to the coast.
Promptly at 7:30 o'clock, to the
strains of the wedding march plaved
by Mrs. Millie B. Hair, an intimate
friend of the family, the bride enter
ed the church on the arm of her fath
er where she was met at the altar by
!lubridegroom, who was accompanied
by Mr. Kenneth Smith ns best man.
Here, beneath a rich floral canopy of
white and green, supported by a
double arch of lilies, daisie s and roses
that arose above the chancel and al
tar, a most impressive ring ceremony
was performed by the Ilev. A. Craig
Bowdish. assisted by the Rev. R. B.

Hughes, by the way, who caught, the
bride's bouquet when she tossed it in
