Mrs. McConkey Is Given
Mrs. Wilbur F. McConkey, who
leaves shortly for the mainland to be
away for at least several years, was
the guest of honor at a most pleasant
reception given by the Ladies' Aid
Society at the Pala Community House,
last Tuesday afternoon from 3 to 5 o'
clock. Several hundred friends of the
popular and beloved matron assem
bled during the afternoon. The main
hall of the Community House had been
arranged in drawing-room effect, with
rugs, tables, and cozy-corners, and
shaded lights cast a soft glow over the
pretty scene. The artistic decorations
were the work of Mrs. J. T. Fantom
and Miss Mosser. During the after
JVnoon choice refreshments consisting
of ice-cream, cake and delicious punch
While the reception was in progress,
a handsome suit-case, a steamer rug,
and a substantial remembrance were
delivered at Mrs. McConkey's home,
as a surprise, for use on the journey,
and at the journeys' end.
Mrs. McConkey with her children,
John Ross and Virginia, expect to
leave by the August transport, to be
followed later by Dr. McConkey.
. PIONEER INCREASES CAPITAL
As was anticipated, the sharehold
ers meeting of the Pioneer Mill Com
pany, held in Honolulu last Friday, ap
proved the plan of the directors for
increasing the capital stock of the
company to $5,000,000 by a stock divi
dend of $1,000,000. It was announced
that the company will continue to pass
dividends of 2 percent monthly as
heretofore. The stockholders also
authorized the listing of the compan
ies' shares in San Francisco and this
is likely to be done shortly.

Weather Bureau May Have
Station On Haleakala
If the ambition of U. S. Weather
Observer A. M. Hamrick, now on Maul
for the first time, can be made a real
ity, a permanent meteorological stat
ion will be established on the summit
of Haleakala, and careful records kept
by some competent person. Dr. Ham
rick, who has been in charge of the
weather bureau work in Honolulu for
something more than a year, believes
that much valuable data might be se
cured by such a station data that
could be secured from no other locat
ion. The Maul cbnmber of commerce has
been planning to put a permanent
care-taker' for the rest house on the
mountain once more, and it is quite
possible that a man might be found
qualified to combine both jobs. Presi
dent R. A. Wadsworth of the chamber
expects to take the matter up with
Dr. Hamrick with this end in view.
Maui's Tax Payments More

H. W. Rice Buys Cornwell
Ranch For $250,000
The Cornwell ranch containing 35,
000 acres has been sold by A. M.
Brown and Mrs. Blanche Walker to
Harold W. Rice, at a consideration be
lieved to be $250,000. The purchaser
gains direct ownership to 10,000 acres,
25,000 acres in leaseholds and 3000
to 3500 head of cattle. Mrs. Walker's
interest has been held in the name of
Walter F. Dillingham and R. W. At
kinson. During the past year Rice has pur
chased a large number of pieces of
land in the Makawao region, including
the 1000 acre ranch of the Ferreira es
tate, and he is probably now the larg.
est individual land owner on Maul.
BOYS' BABY BEEF CLUBS.
Changes in the beef industry have
resulted in the organization in various
States of boys' baby beef clubs. A
number of State agricultural colleges
are now arranging, in cooperation.
with the department, baby beef shows
and contests to be held in the fall
This movement originated in Texas,
where it has proved so successful that
the Texas Baby Beef Club now has a
membership of more than 1200.
This pioneer club was organized to
encourage the fattening of more cattle
in Texas. For many years Texas had
raised feeder cattle, but instead of
fattening them on home-grown milo,
kafir, and feterita, the farmers of the
State had sent them to the feed lots
of the corn belt. This, it . was felt
was a mistake. By the efficient use of
economical feed to produce high-grade
calves without loss of milk fat into
highly finished, maturely formed year
lings, known as baby beeves, it was
believed that profitable returns could
be secured to Texas cattle feeders.
In order to popularize the product
ion of baby beef, therefore, a prom
inent breeder in Coleman county start,
ed a baby beef contest among the
farm boys. The boys purchased their
calves by giving notes payable when
the calves were marketed as baby
beef. The idea proved successful from
the first, and the Annual Boys' En
campment and Baby Beef Contest,
held at Fort Worth under the aus
pices of the National Feeders' and
Breeders' Show, has increased each
year in attendance and exhibits . Last
March 300 boy feeders of pigs and
baby beeves gathered to receive in
struction and to show their stock.
Over 100 well-finished baby beeves of
excellent type were exhibitd.
In a number of the classes the boys
competed with their calves against
older and more experienced feeders.
Twenty ribbons were won in these cla-
sess by club members. Three brothers
from Clay County won two firsts and
two seconds, and one of these broth
ers also obtained the grand champion
ship in the competition among club
According to the custom at fat-
stock shows, the cattle were sold in
the open market. The boys' stock
brought a price averaging alove the
top of the regular market, the extra
price being justified by the quality of
the carcasses. On the hoof the cattle
weighed about 850 pounds per head,
and the dressing percentage was 60.8.
