Raise Rabbits Say
Easy To Raise And Cost Less Than
Any Other Kind Of Meat Form
Excellent Food And Can Be Kept
Rabbits, which have proved a valu
able source of food in Europe during
the present war, may well be raised
more extensively In America by way
of reduction the drain on the ordinary
meat supply, according to biologists of
the United States Department of Agri
culture. The business of growing rab
bits, the specialists point out, can be
carried on by youths and adults not
engaged in military or other national
service, or in regular industrial em
ployment. The animals may be raised
in back yards of cities and towns as
well as on farms.
The Rclgian hare, says a statement
by the department, breeds rapidly,
matures quickly, and produces a palat
able and highly nutritious meat. The
cost of production is less than that
of any other meat, not excepting poul
try. The supply can be greatly increas
ed within a few months without re
quiring spare that may be needed for
the production of crops. Practical
experience has demonstrated that rab
bit meat can be produced in unlimited
quantities at a cost of about 6 cents a
pound, and by utilizing lawn cuttings
and other vegetation that would oth
erwise be wasted the cost can be made
The Ilelgian and Flemish giant rab
bits are recommended for meat pro
duction, as the ordinary tame rabbit
is smaller and develops more slnwlv.
Stock of Relgian hares may be bought
irom breeders In nearly all the States
at to ?. each. They may occasion
ally be had from Det-stock dentirs
Fancy pedigreed stock is not required
lor meat production.
H!iu:jiis are easily kept. They eat
in., pint's, inwn cuttings, ana green
vegetation of many kinds. Females
should be allowed to breed when 8 or
10 month old, and during the year
biiuuiu raise lour litters of about s'x
young each. Well fed, the young reach
marketable size when 3 to 4 months
old and average from 5 to 6 pounds
nve weignt. -The
department has niihlisheH n lmi
letin on raising rabbits which will be
helpful to those who wish to engage
iu mis pursuit.

interpreters for the' different pre
cincts, made by the registration board
consisting of Sheriff Crowell, County
Clerk Kaae, Dr. William Osmers, and
County Attorney Cevins, proved to be
most admirable, in practically every
instance the work was handled intel
ligently and quickly so that very short
ly after the closing hour (9 p. m.), the
returns naa ueen telephoned in from
all precincts. Even Molokai had
ported by wireless at 10 o'clock.
i-anal proved the only exception,
through no fault, however, of the
registrars but through the breaking
down of a launch in mid-channel which
was carrying the returns to Lahaina
where they could be telephoned to
Wailuku. It finally came to hand
about 1 o'clock Wednesday morning.
Not the slightest evidence of unwill
ingness to register has been reported
irom any section. On the other hand
in many of the precincts men stood in
line for hours awaiting the'r turn ,and
did it with the greatest cheerfulness.
The police believe that the few to be
rounded up were ignorant of require
ments rather than intentionally trying
to evaue tne dratt. These are now
being picked up here and there and
being registered by the County Clerk
Jail After Tuesday
But those who have not been regist
ered Dy next luesday face serving a
year in jail If they are discovered, with
no alternative of a line. As soon as
the list of those registered can be com
piled, it is to be published conspicu
ously all over the county, and those
within the age limit whose names do
not appear, are likely to find them
selves in serious trouble.
Board Still Busy
The registration board has had a
busy time for the past two or three
weeks, and its work is not pau yet.
Upon recei.pt of the registration cards
from the various precincts, on Wed
nesday the board immediately had to
get busy tabulating the results and
checking up errors. With the excep
tion of five precincts wherein the re
gistrars got balled up on their instruc
tions, necessitating a complete re
count, the work in the precincts was
carefully and completely done.
The board has requisitioned the
Wailuku Town Hall for its work, and
all day Wednesday and Thursday the
entire police force was impressed i,n
the tabulation work, while yesterday
St. Anthony's school turned over to
the board eleven members of Brothei
Frank's champion penmanship class,
and these boys have been ever since
making duplicates of the registration
cards to be forwarded to Washington.
The boys who have volunteered for
this work, and who will get nothing
but thanks for their services are Ah
Sang Chong, Ah Yee Wong, John Vas
concellos, James W. Heau, Arnold
Vasconcellos, Ah Cho Wong, Robert
L. Heau, Edmund Hart ,St. Elmo Hart,
Ah Chen Jim, and Henry Shim.
It is hoped to have the work compl
eted by tonight in order that the full
reports may be sent to headquarters

Summer School In The National Forest
SAN FRANCISCO, July 25 A re
quest has been made by the Fresno
Summer Normal School to the otllcers
of the Sierra National Forest for more
land on, which to construct school
lxiildings. The Normal School, which
has a tract of twenty acres rented
from the Government on the shores of
Huntington Lake in the Sierra Na
l tonal Forest, has a large attendance
this summer, and the otllcers of the
schools expect the attendance to in
This school, in the High Sierras, is
said to be the only normal school on,
a National Forest in the country. It
offers a regular six weeks course every
summer in normal work, as well as
courses in woodcraft and general for
estry subjects. The students of this
school also have the opportunity of
combining a vacation in the mountains
with their regular school courses. Lect
ures from time to time by Forest otlicers
on forestry subjects are a feature of
the class work. The students also
visit nearby ranger stations and tim
ber sale operations to study National
Forest administration and protective
Near the school a summer resort
with hotels, stores, a restaurant, billi
ard, and cottages, all on bind rented
from the Government. For the use of
the summer residents the Forest Ser
vice has installed a water system con
sisting ol tank and pipe line. Across
the lake from the settlement the city
of Fresno has leased a site of 15 acres
for a municipal camp similar to the
camp established on the Angeles Na
tional torest by the city of Los Ang
Huntington Lake Is about 60 miles
east of Iresno in the High Sierras,
and was formed by the damming of

develops the power for Los Angeles
250 miles away. Hydro-electric power,
the Forest ollicers say, is one of the
greatest resources of the National
Forests. Tower plants in the forests
of California during the past season
developed 272,420 hp., and permits
have been issued for the use of other
sites which will produce 470,000 hp.

Britain and America can endorse would lead to permanent settlement
and provide security never thought possible before. Germany must
work out her own salvation, then perhaps Germany will be added to
those nations which before war were unable to see how war of this
sort could be provoked by any single community . When Germany comes

peace be forever established.
