Potatoes And Beans Should Be
Grown Scarcity Of Chicken And
Hog Feed Threatens Industries
Honolulu, April 23, 1917.
There has been particularly no
ehanne in the condition of the egg
market during the week but the price
of feed has advenced about 15 per
cent. Poultrymen complain that if
feed does not drop very soon they 'will
have to go out of busiuiss. The feed
piestion is also bothering the hog
raist'is and even at the advanced price
of pmk they claim that it is a losing
Nii-iness. In order to protect them
selves, as well as the consumers,
farr.ivrs must raise more of their own

oni- if the best crops to plant for
quick returns in both grain and forage.
Four crops can be cut a year and
ac'i crop will yield from 13 to 20
bushels of grain and about 12 tons of
forage. The Division is ordering a
la'Ki supply of this and other seed to
take care of the greatly increased de
mand. While the price of green vegetables
Is very high at the present time farm
ers on the other islands should not
plant them to any large extent. The
movement to have consumers plant
vegetable gardens will greatly reduce
ihe amount of green vegetables
bought in the market so that farmers
producing for the market should do
vote their efforts to such crops ns
sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, dried
brans and peas, pumpkins, corn and
hogs. Hogs should not be raised un
less the farmer can produce the most
of his feed on the farm. One glance
at the feed quotations this week con

Rice has taken a big drop during
,he week. Hawaiian rice is quoted at
J7.00 a bag and California rice at $6.25.
Australian onions are selling for from
$3.25 to 3.50 a hundred. Irish potatoes
can be expected to advance next
month to about $6.50 a hundred. Peo
ple are buying the simplest foods these
days so do not plant crops lor which
there is not a ready sale.
The Division needs more hogs, sweet
