Kite Station Planned For Oahu To

First In The Tropics Instruments
Will Keep Record
The second meteorological station
in the United States for the gathering
of data of the upper air will shortly
be erected in Hawaii unless the plana
of the army and of the weather bur
eau go askew. By a proposal present
ed by the representatives of the wen-
ther bureau, A. M. Hamrick, and en
thusiastically endorsed by the army
authorities of this department an electric-reel
station from which will be
flown the great kites which carry the-
Instruments aloft is planned to be
placed here as soon as practical. It
will be modeled on the similar station
at Omaha, Nebraska, and will be the
only station of the kind in the tropics
One of the principal reasons for the
adoption of plans for such a station
here is to secure data for the aviation
corps of the army which is about to
install a squadron of flyers on Oahu
and to whom such information Is vi
tal. The plan, as outlined by Mr. Ham
rick was to build a reelhouse where
an electric reel might be installed
which would be used to haul In the
big kites which are flown by the weather-men
in gathering the data nec
essary for computing the strength
and direction of the upper air cur
rents. It wii stated in his letter to the
war departmen that not a single sta
tion of the size and scope of that pro
posed for this place is now in exist
ence in the tropics; the only informa
tion now recorded on the subject of
the upper air currents in this part of
the Globe being that gathered by a
. Dutch professor on the islands of Bor
neo, and this was gathered with his
own apparatus, which was not com
: The kites wh'rh are to be used are
of the Hargrave-Marvln type, from
seven to nine feet square and two feet
eight inches deep. One end of the
kite is black and the other end white
so that they can be seen equally well
against a dark or light cloud. The
average we'.ght of the kites is nine
pounds. These kites go up to a height
of two or three miles and as many as
ten or twelve are sometimes attached
to a single wire, so the necessity for
the powerful reel is apparent. The
first kite on the wire bears a Uttle in
strument called a meteoragraph,
which is fitted in one of the braces
inside the kite. It is this instrument
which records conditions in the up
per atmosphere. It runs by clock-
work in much the same way as larger
instruments of the same kind and
with four delicate steel pen marks on
a sheet of cross-section paper, the
wind velocity, temperature, barmoet-
ric pressure, and humidity for the en
tire time that the kite is in the air,
Often the operator desires to know at
what height his kite is flying; he ae
termines this by means of a theodo
lite, on instrument resembling a sur
veyor's instrument. From the amount
of string or wire out, as measured ny
the reel, and the angle at which the
wire hangs in the air, the height of
the kite at any time may be computed
The kites on the wire below the first
one are used .to support the weight of
the wire, though they may have in
struments attached to one or more of
The fact that Hawaii will have the

lonolulu Merchants Refuse To Handle
Local Vegetables Marketing Divi
sion Says fanned Peas Preferred
HONOLULU, June 4 There has
been no change in the butter, egg or
poultry market during the week.
Green vegetables are plentiful and the
prices are normal. A shipment of 31
bags of green peas were received by
the Division and although they have
been advertised very few of them have
been sold even at the very low price
of 8 cents a pound retail. The fact
hat green vegetables can not be sold
in large quantities bears out the warn
ning sent out by the Division to pro
ducers and unless more attention is
given to the marketing end of the
farming business at the time crops
are planted, .farmers are sure to suf
fer unnecessary losses. Although there
is very little sale for fresh green pens
it is probable that there are hundreds
of cans of pens sold by the groceries
Although all the retailers in Hono
lulu have been quoted low prices on
island onions not a single onion has
leen sold to them by the Division. A
few have been sold to retailers in the
country districts hut most of the sales
have been direct to consumers. The
island onions are sweet and mild and
should be demanded by everv consum
er in the territory. The Division is
not anxious to sell direct to the con
sumer but is forced to do it bv the
etailer. If the consumer reallv has
the interest of the community at heart
ne win demand island products.
The Division now has a large sup
ply of all kinds of field and garden
seeds for sale. Price lists will be

But the next test was when she told
Mariano to pour water into a dish and
if it boiled it would be proof she would
cure him. He did so and the water
boiled. Then Mariano drew out $150
from the bank and gave it to Mrs.

Jjavid Warth Griffith as its producer
many flattering remarks were made
o' the feature after the performance,
Mary Hoffman's occhestra assisted
not a little in sending away a pleased
audience. Mr. Snyder has stated
that new scenery is beijig designed
and painted in a Honolulu studio and
something new and startling will be
the result. In design and color some
thing of the ultra modern and "futur

The last week i,n June, at the Kahu

Snyder, will give an exhibition that
will include a dance of the classic
school, one of the modern dances and
one of the costume dances of the 1830
period. No one has yet forgotten the

recent benefit In Wailuku when they
gave a gavotte modeled after the gav

the destruction of a perfectly good roll
