Maui Agricultural Notes
ing to be nicely cleaned up by the
next feeding. I am feeding approxi
mately 200 chickens ranging from
three to five months old and Including
a flock of 20 laying hens. In addition
to this mixture I feed 7 pounds of
cracked corn and wheat each morn
ing. The whole grain costs me about
5 cents per pound or 35 cents per day
and the mash 1 cents per pound or
about Co cents per day making the
total cost of feeding 200 chickens
about $1 per day or 15 cents each per
I should add that sweet potatoes,
pumpkins, and green papaias are
cooked and fed with the mash and
potato tops three or four feedings
The county agent and his associate
made a comprehensive Burvey of the
middle Kula agricultural region on
7th inst. The bean and corn harvests
were found to be well under way,
especially in the lower sections. The
yields of corn are good and that of
beans fair for the most part. At Ku
la Sanitarium the phenomenal yield
ot fifteen bags Maui Red beans was
harvested from one-half acre, or at the
rate of 3000 pounds per acre. Old
bean growers state that such yields
were occasionally met with In former
years when the soil was virgin. The
average yields during late years Is
about 1500 pounds per acre. Many
fields thi3 year yielded less than 800 each week, about two gallons of the
In the upper Kula region both corn
and beans are practically a failure.
In many instances no attempt is being
made to harvest these crops. The ex
cessive cold and wet during the earl
ier part of the season, follow by ex
cessive drought is responsible for the
disappointing crop in some sections
of Kula this year.
Potatoes Poor Crop
The summer potato crop was poor
In nearly all sections due mainly to
the blight in the fore part of the seas
on, and the unusual drought follow
ing. Farmers are now anxiously await- my entire (lock.
inr rains to enable them to plant eggs during the
their fall crops of potatoes and beans.
Some late plantings of potatoes on
virgin land, which has been deeply and
thoroughly worked, look very promis
ing. With the aid of spraying agavnst
blight the county agricultural author
ities hope to carry this late crop
through to safety. It is very grafjy-

It is interesting to note in this con
nection that an article in the Country
Gentleman of August 4th, entitled
"Quit Fooling and Talk Sense" with
the sub-title "The Government Con
tracts for Ships and Rifles; Why Not
for Totatoes and Onions" is much to
the same effect.
The matter of securing the opening
of the mnuka end of the K. Kutaha
road to connect with the Kokoma-Kau-pakalua
road, in order that a rural
mail delivery may be established thru
the country beyond Haiku postofDce,
was placed in the hands of a com
mittee consisting of W. I. Wells, W.
A. Daldwin, and E. C. Moore, with
instructions to secure a conference
with Mr. Aheong, and to take the mnt
ter up with the board of supervisors.
To the same committee was intrusted
the matter of taking up with the board
the widening and strengthening of the
bridges across the gulches on the new
homestead cross road, especially the
one at Sardinha Gulch. At this bridge
a serious accident had occured during
the week previous to the meeting. A
wagon loaded with pineapples had
gone over into the gulch, killing one
of the horses and Injuring the driver.
