Wailuku Union Church Planning Sever
al Days Of Program Committee
Appointed To Make Plans October
10 Is Date
The fiftieth anniversary of the org
anization of the Wailuku Union
Church will occur on October 10. The
fact of the anniversary of the grant
ing of the charter to the trustees:
Christopher H. Lowers, Sherman Peck
and Henry Cornwall, on October 10th,
1K66 was brought to the attention of
the present board of trustees, and H.
It. Penhallow, the chairman called a
meeting last Suuday evening after
church service. In connection with
this meeting. Rev. R. B. Dodge called
a meeting of the standing committee
of the church, and the joint meeting
discussed at some length the matter
of a proper cebrat.;on. A committee
consisting of the minister; W. A. Mc
Kay, clerk; and L. R. Mathews, dea
con, was appointed to confer and draw
up plans for the celebration. The cel
ebration will possibly cover one or
two days near the tenth of October.
The Sunday that falls on the 8th will
probably be the day that will be large
ly used for the celebration, and a
program of unusual interest will un
doubted'y be arranged.
The Wailuku Union Church has a
very interesting history, which will
undoubtedly be brought out in Oct
ober. Haiku Experiment In
Storing Eggs Success
During the spring of this year when
eggs were plentiful two experiments
were undertaken in storing eggs. One
consisted in putting the eggs in cold
storage at Wailuku, the other in put
ting eggs in "water glass" at home.
The experiment at home was con
ducted by Mrs. W. I. Wells, at Haiku.
Twenty-five cents worth of the cryst
als of sodium silicate was bought and
dissolved by boiling in water, It w.as
hard to dissolve, and some did not
dissolve at all. Mrs. Wells says she
will not try to dissolve it again, but
will buy the liquid next time. Never
theless it is well to remember that it
can be gotten in the crystal form, and
in that form is easily mailed from a
drug store, rn case the liquid cannot
be bought nearby, which is likely to
be the case here in the islands. After
the boiling the liquid was put in a
stone crock and when cold three dozen
eggs w-ere put in. After some months
they were perfectly good. We know of
another case on Maul where the eggs
were good after a year.
The cold storage experiment was
not successful at all. After a few
months a. large proportion of the eggs
were bad. Cold storage is used every
where for keeping eggs in large
quantities, and we do not know just
why it was such a failure in this case.
For home use the water glass will
prove entirely satisfactory. It is both
cheap and easy. Farmers Bulletin
287, "Poultry Management" describes
the method as follows:
"Eggs to be stored should be: First,
from hens that have no males with
them, because an infertile egg keeps
longer, even without the use of a pre
servative, than a fertile egg; second,
perfectly fresh, for not only will they
keep much better, but if an egg that
has begun to decay is placed in the
same vessel with fresh ones ir is like
ly to affect all the surrounding eggs;
and, third, perfectly clean, for filth of
any kind adhering to the shell will
taint the preserving medium and thus
taint the other eggs.
"In placing eggs In the preserv
ative be cartful not to crack the
shells. Keep them in a moderately
cool room where the temperature may
be kept fairly constant. A dry, clean
cellar Is a suitable place.
"Water-glasi. Of the many meth
ods which have been tried for pre
serving eggs on a smalt scale none has
proved more successful than the use
of water-glass (sodium silicate). This
Is a very cheap product that can usual
ly be procured at not to exceed 50
cents a gallon, and one gallon will
make enough solution to preserve 50
dozen eggs, so that the cost of materi
al would not exceed one cent a dozen.
Pure water that has been boiled and
then cooled should be used. To each
fifteen to twenty quarts of water one
(mart of water-glass should be added.
The solution should be prepared, plac
ed in the jar or other suitable vessel,
and the fresh eggs added f) om time to
time until the jar is filled, but be sure
that there is two inches of the solu
tion covering the eggs. The eggs
should not be washed before packing,
for washing injures the keeping qual
ity." Put out by the Extension Di
vision of the Hawaii Experiment Sta
tion. WILL CONDEMN NEW STREET
The supervisors yesterday instruct
ed the county attorney in conjunction
with the county engineer to proceed
