Purpose In Conserving Food Needed
VALUABLE CALORIES TABLE
Housewives would do well to preserve these tables for future reference.
They will prove valuable.
As stated in previous articles the basis of the measurement of foods
adopted by dieticians is the 100-calory portion. The 100-calory portions
given below are taken from a list furnished by the "Good Housekeeping
Institute." It is hoped that additions may be made to this list later.

Get Rid Of Your
oast Crop Will Soon Be In Market
And Price Must Drop Eggs Going
Up Kula Potatoes Net So Good
Island eggs are getting scarcer
every day and the price Is advancing.
Muscovy ducks are plentiful at pre
sent prices will drop if more are ship
ped in. Cabbage is in demand at 3
cents. Other prices have remained
bout the same as last week.
The new crop of beans which should
begin to come on the market next
month will bring better prices than
ever before. Producers should be
careful In harvesting and cleaning the
crop to see that all beans sent to the
market are clean. It pays to put
beans in double bags in the same way
that sUKar is shipped.
Irish potatoes are coming in from
all the islands and most of them are
very good. The potatoes from Maui
re mnrh smaller and have more wee
vils and scabs than usual. The isl
and producers can expect to get good
prices for all first grade potatoes for
another six week at least.
Producers having onions on hand
will do well to dispose of them before
the end of this month as the new Cali-
forn'a onions will begin coming. in at
hat time and will be sold around
$2.nn a hundred.
Farmers should keep the Division
nfornipd as far ahead as possible on
what they will have for the market.
When such Information Is received
far enough in advance it is often pos
sible to make large sales at fair
prices. Often through lack of thie In
formation opportunities for sales are
list. A farmer naturally wants to
get. as much for his produce as he pos
sibly can but he makes a great mis-
ake when he holds his price too high.
He can expect no more than the mar
lost. A farmer naturally wants to
remember above all others, and that
s to ship the goods when he says he
will. Taro has been rotting In the
ground in Kona for some time. About
two weeks ago the Division received
a trial shipment of twenty-five bags
which were sold promptly at a very
good price. . An order was sent up for
fifty bags to arrive today but not a
s'ngle taro arrived and the Division
has been busy all day explaining to
customers that taro did not come and
we were not sure when we would
have any as the shipper did not write
The Division can not built up a trade

A Perfect Lady
A philanthropic New York woman
was entertaining, in the spacious
grounds of her suburban residence, n
large number of East-Side children.
On her rounds of hospitality she was
imprest with one strikingly beautiful
11' tie girl. She could not have been
more than nine years old, but her
coal-black eyes flashed with Intel
ligence. The hostess Introduced her
self and began a conversation.
"Does what you see here to-day
please you?" she asked.
The child eyed her in silence.
"Talk away," said the lady. "Don't
"Tell me," then said the child.
how many children have you got?"
Astonished at the question, the lady
hesitated for a moment, and then ent
ered into the fun of the situation.
"Ten," she replied.
"Dear me," answered the child,
that is a very large family. I hope
you are careful and look after them.
Do you keep them all clean?"
"Well, I do my best."
"And Is your husband at work?"
"My husband does not do any Kind
of work, ilc never has.
"That is very dreadful," replied the
little girlu earnestly, "but I hope you
keep rut of debt.
The iiame had gone too far for Lady
Pountiful's enjoyment of it.
"You are a very rude and imperti
nent child," she burst out, "to speak
like that, and to me."
The child became apologetic. "I'm
sure I didn't mean to be, ma'am," she
explained. "But. mother told me be
fore I came that I was to be sure to
speak to you like a lady, and when
any ladies call on us, they always ask
us those questions." New York Eve

accosted by a local dealer.
"Why didn't you buy
that bill of goods from
me? I could have saved
you the express, and be
sides you would. have been
patronizing a home store,
