Carnival Lo6t Money No Regrets
Although the Honolulu Mid-Pacific
Carnival lost money ihis year, it was
less than has been lost in the past
and the directors are highly satisfied
with the results, according to the re
port just published by President Geo.
H. Angus. The same board of diree
tors was re-elected.
Receipts from all events of the 1917
Carnival were $15,684.20, and expenses
$18,290.02, showing a loss for the op
erating account of $2,605,82, but the
Carnival closed its books for the first
time Its history with a balance in
bank, Instead of a docket of unpaid
"The fact remains, however," says
President George H. Angus, In his an
nual report, "that the Carnival Is not
a going business, and I express the
opinion of the directors when I say
that we believe It never will be.
Thie year, in spite of our cash balance,
It remains true that the operating ex
penses were greater than our box of
flc and gate receipts, the revenune
from concessions and the rental of
bleachers. We lost money. But we
lost less money than in years previous.
A better built program and more gene
rous support by the community at
large account for the better showing."
Dr. Goodhue Praised
Representative Miles last week in
troduced In the house a concurrent re
solution providing that Dr. W. J. Good
hue be appointed one of the physi
cians to undertake the examination of
persons suspected of being lepers.
Obejection to the resolution was
raised by Representative Walsh, who
said the people of Kalaupapa would
never stand for the removal of Dr.
Goodhue from Molokal.
"He is a wonderful man, and we
need him there," said Walsh.
Miles explained the passage of the
resolution would mean that the doc
tor would have to come to Honolulu

The Peanut In Hawaii With Special
Reference To Its Value As An ..
A correspondent writes: "I trust
that you will he able to comply
with my suggestion that you prepare
an article on peanuts as a consider
able number of local residents have
planted peanuts and others would un
doubtedly do so if their attention were
called to the value of the cron. I
think your point as to peanuts be
coming an important source of fate In
an emergency is a particularity good
one in view of our limited supply of
animal and vegetable fat-sources in
the event of any interruption of tran
sportation." Aside from their entensive use as
roasted nuts for eating out of the
hand, peanuts are put to a number of
important uses, both as human food
and stock feed. Their utilization as
a source of fats or oil in case of emer
gency cannot well be overestimated.
Peanuts oil is becoming to be known
as one of the most valuable vegetable
oils. It has high food value, is very
palatable and has good keeping quali
ties. It Is now chiefly used as a sub
stitute for olive oil and bids fair to
displace much of that expensive oil
for culinary purposes. Peanuts but
ter Is too well known to require more
than passing notice. Children relish j
it and physicians recommend it as a
most wholesome and nutritous arti
cle of food. Peanut butter is easily
prepared on the farm or at home.
The ordinary household meat chopper
will grind the nuts to a satisfactory
consistency, and when freshly prepar
ed the "butter" carries an unusually
fine flavor. Bread, cakes, pudding etc.
to which a moderate amount of pea
nut Dutter nas been added, is said to
impart exceptionally favorable nuali
ties and bids fair to become as uni
versal a practice as the present use
or butter and other expensive fats.
As a stock feed, the whole plant,
vines and nuts cured together, is one
of our richest feeds. Such a product
will contain over 18 percent of pro
tein, over 21 percent of fat and 6 per
cent of mineral matter. It is appetiz
ing to all kinds of farm animals, and
a laxative like alfalfa hay and good
At the Haiku-Sub-Station consider
able peanut hay has been fed to work
mules, hogs and a . dairy cow with
very satisfactory results. Poultry es
pecially will work among the cured
vines to search out stray nuts that
may have escaped in thrashing the
vines. A number of Experiment Sta
tions In the Southern States have re
ported that peanut hay made from the
entire plant gave somewhat better re
sults for horses and mules than a ra
tion of ordinary hay and grain.
Feeders in the South report excel
lents results from feeding peanut hay
to fattening cattle and sheep. Colts,
calves and lambs are said to like pea
nut hay and to thrive on It. A pure
bred dairy herd at one of the South
ern Stations was. fed ensilage and a
mixture of grains that secured a high
milk yield. All the grain was taken,
away and the hay from the whole pea
nut plant, vines and nuts, fed in its
place. The, milk yield increased.
At the Arkansas Experiment Stat
tion hogs pastured on ripe peanuts
made a gain of 1252 pounds from each
acre, while other hogs made a gain of
436 pounds per acre from corn.
In the Texas Panhandle, In 1910,
the dryest year since the country has
been settled, a stock man pastured a
large acreage of ripe peanuts with
hogs and made a gain on the hogs of
1023 pounds for each acre pastured.
It was unusually dry In 1911, in Ok
lahoma, yet a feeder fattened 200 hogs
on 35 acres of ripe peanuts, with only
two weeks finishing on corn. Hi-s
hogs topped the market.'
To come nearer home a neigbor to
the Sub-Station, who planted a consid
erable area to peanuts at our suggest
ion, found that young pigs turned into
the peanuts pasture fattened too ra
pidly for normal growth. All that
would have been necessary would be
to give excess to a more dilute feed
such as sudan or other grass pasture.
As to the quality of pork produced
from peanut hay, it need only be men
tioned that the famous Smithfleld
hams, the highest priced hams pro
duced In America, owe their fine flav
or to a part ration of peanuts fed to
the fattening hogs.
Were It not that the peanut thrives
in Hawaii as do few other crops on
first introduction, the above resume
would be of little value at this time.
As a matter of fact many home gard
ens have found the peanut of easiest
possible culture, and it is grown on a
small scale quite universally.
At the Haiku Sub-Station the pea
nut centers into regular rotat'on with
a number of other crops. During the
past two years it has been grown very
successfully as an inter-crop with
corn. The fall crop of 1916 yielded
at the rate of 1600 pounds of prime
nuts per acre, planted between corn
rows set 5 feet apart. Planted alone
in rows 2'4 feet apart we have had
yieds exceeding 2 tons per acre.
Where the peanut has failed in Ha
waii It has probably been due to very
adverse conditions such as during
seasons of excessive rainfall, or the
selection of too heavy and tenacious
soils. Such soils are often very acid
and tills the peanut will not tolerate.
Perhaps the most important single
factor to insure a profitable crop is to
select a suitable variety. The Sub
Station has had under test on a field
scale some six varieties for three
years. All have now been discarded
excepting the small Spanish and the
Improved Valencia. We consider the
latter by far the best variety thus far
grown and recommend it unqualifiedly
to all who plan to grow peanuts In
The crop thrives best in light, warm
soils. While It responds to fertilizers,
especially to phosphates (we have
found reverted phosphate applied at
the rate of 300 pounds per acre In
drills a superior fertilizer under our
soil conditions), the peanut will pro
duce a fair crop where corn Is almost
Unless the soil is moist at time of
planting we have found It advisable to
plant the shelled nut. The Spanish
and Valencia peanut being of bush
form may be planted 12 to 13 inches
apart In rows 2 feet apart. This
will permit horse cultivation, thus
economizing in cost of labor.
Five to eight weeks after planting,
the plant begins to bloom, and the
fertilized (pollinated) seeds, in the
form of pegs, will shoot vigorously to
wards the ground in order to bury
themselves in the soil and complete
their development. At this time it is
well to hill the plants sufficiently to
cover the "pegs" to enable the nuts
to develop normally.
hen the nuts nature, It is impor
tant that the vines he harvested at
once, especially should wet weather

in the soil and be spoiled. If the soil
is mellow the entire mass of nuts can
be milled with vines. A spading fork
Is a great aid when the soil is com
