Make Ice Cream In
Old Breweries Now
Property Values Not Hurt By Oper
ation Of Dry Law In West Virgi
nia Charleston, V. Va. There wag dur
ing the state-wide campaign consider
able discussion bb to what would be
come of the money and property in
vested In the liquor business In this
state, and statement was made that
money invested in breweries would be
absolutely lost, and that on account of
the great number of buildings being
released on account of the saloons go
ing out of business, rental values
would very materially suffer, and that
the price of' real estate would necess
arily depreciate in value. This has
proved absolutely untrue Most of
the buildings occupied by saloons were
contracted for before the saloons
were vacated, at a very much increas
ed rental. Dreweries of the state are
being, or have been, converted into
lines of legitimate enterprise, and so
far as we are able to learn are produc
ing as much profit as they did when
they were being operated as brewer
ies. For Instance:
The Kanawha Brewing company, at
Charleston, has been converted Into a
cold' storage plant, and is now being
used for that purpose by the Biagl
Fruit and Produce company, a large
wholesale concern in me cuy 01
The brewery at Bluefield was
turned Into an ice cream factory, and
the ice plant 'which- was connected
with the brewery Is used for making
ir- and both departments seem to be
d, ag well. They see to have a big
w ,lesale trade in ice cream. They
also use part of their building for cold
The Fairmont Brewing company, at
Fairmont, has been converted into an
ice cream factory and bottling works,
employing a good many men.
The Huntington brewery, at Hunt
ington, has been converted into a large
meat-packing establishment, and now
employes three times as many men as
when' a brewery, and in addition to
that w'll give a local market for sheep,
cattle, hogs, etc.
The Parkersburg brewery, at Parlc
ersburg, Is now being utilized as an
ice cream plant and wholesale- Ice
cream factory. The change, practical
ly everybody is admitting, is one from
stagnation to progression.
The Ueyman Brewing company, at
Wheeling, one of the former largest
breweries In the state, has been con
verted into.a la ge meat-packing plant,
employing many more men than it did
when a- brewery.
The Benwood brewery, at Benwood,
Is now being operate as a chemical
plant wher certain chemicals are
manufactured from tobacco stems.
In .fact, the only effect prohibition in
this state had on business was to
make the betterment so noticeable
that the old argument that it would
hurt business in this state is now
never even mentioned.
Rice Continue To
Advance In Price
Corn Also Going Higher With Beans
Crop' About Pau Eggs Slump
Practically no Island butter is be
ing received in Honolulu markets at
the present time. At this season of
the year, all Island butter is consum
ed in local markets. Eggs dropped
slightly during the past week. Since
Christmas, the supply of Island poul
try has been very limited. There is
now, practically none in the market,
and now is the time to ship.
From tht best information the
market can get, nearly all of the Maui
bean crop has been sold, and prices,
from now on until the next crop
comes in, will be high.
Hawaiian corn has advanced con
siderably, with very little coming in.
It is reported that corn is selling for
150.00 a ton on Maui.
Rice has jumped again, and will
probably get higher.
Hides are still bring top prices, but
there has been a slight drop in the
prices of hides in the mainland mark
ets. Feed prices have advanced on sev
eral iieins uuring i.ne wee.

To Meet Here Next Week
The annual meeting of the Maui
Evangelical Association will be held
in Wailuku next week, beginning on
Wednesday and continuing until Sat
urday. It is expected there will be a
large attendance of ministers and oth
er church workers from all over the
county. The Hawaiian Board will be
represented by Rev. A. Akana and
Rev. H. P. Judd, of Honolulu. It is
believed that the meeting this year
will be particularly interesting and
MAUI CADETS TO GIVE BALL
The Maul Cadets, of Pala, are plan
ning another elaborate military dance
to be given this year on February 10,
at the Paia Community House. The
success of the last similar affair given
by this live organization will cause
the coming event to be eagerly antic
ipated by the young people of central
Boys And Girls Learn To Master
Physical Difficulties And Solve Busi
How the Initiative of boys and girls
in all sections of the country is being
developed through the juvenile agri
cultural club work fostered by the
department, i,n co-operation with the
State agricultural colleges, and how
interest in the work is spreading
among adults as well as children, is
brought out by reports received by the
States Relations Service of the depart
ment. Three schoolboys in the Slate of
Washington who were given the use
of an acre of land for five yenvs in
return for clearing it not only made
a profit from a potato crop the flrrt
year, but with the logs from the clear
ing built a substantial clubhouse on
the school grounds and furnished it.
School luncheons are now served In
this building by girl club members.
Four girls in another portion of the
same State, having only rorky
land available on which to grow their
gardens, removed four was?onloads of
stones and now have thriving plats.
From both West Virgina and Idaho
come reportR of the development of
business ability in young boys. In
West Virgina a small boy began oper
ations with one hen. With the pro
ceeds from the sale of chickens raised
he bought a pig. After fattening the
pig he sold it and bought a calf, which
he raised to a cow. With the proceeds
from the sale of the cow the boy has
taken up the regular bus'ness of cattle
raising on a small scale. In Idaho a
young club member, through raising
a few pigs and calves, obtained en
ough capital to engage in the regular
business of buying and Belling hides.
Girl club members in the State of
Washington have shown their busi
ness ability by taking canned goods
from their home-canning club supply.
The civic value of the club work has
recently been recognized by the may
or of Glenwood Springs, Colo., who
gave free water for irrigating garden
plates on vacant city lots. In Wyom
ing a woman serving without compen
sation as local leader in club work
rode 210 miles on horseback to re
ceive additional instruction in the
methods of club leadership for girls.
In the Southern States, wher this
work has been in progress for several
years, hundreds of girls have made
their own money to buy canning out
fits, with which they can not only
their own products but they also can
for their neighbors on shares. Fully
as many boys have saved enough from
their crops to buy pigs, calves, colts,
lambs, and chickens and are now
prospering in the livestock business.
Many students are taking agriculture
and home economics in the colleges
because of their own activity and
thrift as members of these clubs.
