Plant Dried Beans
Is Longley's Advice
Eggs have not advanced for the past
three weeks and a great many small
poultry raisers are disposing of their
stock in order to avoid the high cost of
feed. The demand for poultry is good.
All growers who have calico or red
beans on hand shoud reserve them for
seed and not use them for food. The
division is having more calls for these
beans than it can supply.
Do not slaughter hogs that weigh
les than 100 pounds simply to get
away from the high cost of feed. Eith
er raise your own feed or sell them to
some one who will and thereby keep
up the pork production of the Islands.
There will be a great scarcity of bogs
in a few months if the producers kill
off the young at this time.
The price of beef has advanced one
cent a pound during the week and it
is likely that the price of pork will ad
vance still more. Mutton and veal
have also advance.
From the quantity of vegetable seed
that has been sold in the past few
weeks there will be a great surplus
shortly for which there will be no mar
ket. All those who have as much as
a quarter of nn acre to plant should
put in such crops as dried lieans, po
tatoes or sweet potatoes. Beans will
probably be the safest. Poult rynien
should plant either pigeon peas or
Large quantities of field seeds for
both human food and stock feed should
begin to arrive by the next boat and if
this Territory is to become anywhere
near self supporting much larger areas
will have to be planted. Under a re
cent act of the legislature the division
is given $2500 with which to purchase
seed to be sold at cost to all who apply
for same. Every man who can pre
pare as much as a few square yards
should plant some crop for which he
is assured a market if he cannot con
Bume it at home.

Food For War Needs

supply the National Forest stock
ranges lire being gone over with a fine
tooth comb to discover every acre
available for summer graz'ng and the
sheep and cattle to stock them.
For the last two years the Forest
Service has devoted much time and
money to promoting and developing
the reereaton use of the Forests. It
was planned to continue this work
aggressively this season, to improve
camp grounds and to issue more maps,
This will be postponed, however until
the successful termination of the war
In many cases range areas hitherto
reserved for campers' horses will be

to so develop the ranges that more

cooperative work with the Live Stock

Says Advertising Would
Have Prevented The War
New York Ivy L. Lee, publicity
council for the Pennsylvania railroad
and the Bethlehem Steel corporation,
speaking at the luncheon of the Ad
vertising ekib on the "Future of Ad
vertising," said the present war repre
sents the failure of advertising.
"Future advertising," said Mr. Lee,
"will address Itself to the mind rather
than the pocketbook.
"Future political campaigns will, to
an Increasing degree, be conducted
through advertising. The government
must advertise, and both governments
and corporations should, through ad
vertising, support the press, in order
that this public tribunal may exist in
prosperity and independence.
"War represents in reality a failure
of advertising, for if through effective
advertising of one nation to another
the different rations could be made
thoroughly to understand each other
war would be unthinkable.
"In the period after the war nations
and peoples must appeal for good will
to the opinion of mankind."
The price of islands is going up.
Only a short time ago Uncle Sam, the
well-known international operator in
real estate, handed over $25,000,000 to
Denmark for the Danish West Indies,
or, as he promptly renamed them, the
Yirigin island, a dozen or so mere
specks in the blue Caribbean. Yet
he paid only $20,000,000 for the Philip
pines, a whole archipelago, in which
the latest acquisition would be lost.
On the whole, however, Uncle Sam
has fared pretty well in his land deals.
Hawaii didn't cost a cent. Neither
did Guam. Porto Rico was just as in
expensive. Alaska with its enormous
mineral wealth cost Uncle Sam only
$7,500,000, and Russia tossed in the
Aleutian and Pribiloff islands, rich
sealing and fishing grounds.
Money On Its Dairy
Dr. C. P. Durney, superintendent of
the Kula Sanitarium, who was in Wai
luku this week, reports that the sani
tarium herd of 20 or more dairy cows
is now returning a net profit of about
$150 per month. A careful record Is
being kept of each cow's performance,
and the total yield in milk and butter
shows that the institution is well
ahead from a financial standpoint, as
well as having an abundant supply of
an absolutely pure product.

A8 THEIR OWN CENSORS
New York Secretaries Lansing,
Baker and Daniels and George Creel,
who compose the new government
publicity bureau created by President
Wilson, have held their first meeting
to map out a course of action. The
primary purposes of the bureau, it
was said, was to open to the public
all proper information as to what the
government Is doing or Intends to do.
There will be no effort to withhold
any information except such as, in
the judgment of the press itself, it
would be unwise to print, it was said.
An advisory relationship with the
press representatives in Washington
will be established to obtain that end.
Indications are that no attempt at
direct censorship will be made. The
bureau will formulate, after a confer
ence wixh the newspaper men in
Washington, a set of regulations for
the guidance of newspaper editors.
It will be left to the papers themselves
to comply, and there Is no plan for
watching the columns of the press.
