Home Gardens Not
Most Vegetables In Good Demand Says
Longley Eggs Shade Off Grapes
And Bananas A Glut Hogs Very
HONOLULU, AUGUST 3, Although
Island eggs are Still scarce, the price
has dropped slightly during the week.
Consumers refuse to pay the big diff
erence between Imported eggs and the
home product. It Is hard to under
stand how California eggs can be land
ed here at from 38 to 40 cents a dozen
if the prices of feed are relatively as
high on the Coast as here.
The home gardens which were plant
ed some time ago, have evidently not
affected the market to any extent as
the price of green vegetables is nor
mal. Maui beans have dropped a lit
tle during the week and red and cali
co beans are now selling from 10 to
11 dollars. There is no sweet corn in
the market at present and good ears
would bring about three dollars a
hundred at the present time. Cabbage
still brings very good prices. There
are very few good Island potatoes on
the market now. A great many pota
toes now on hand are more or less
wormy. These potatoes will have to
be sold at a sacrifice so producers
should be careful not to send them to
the Honolulu market. Sweet pota
toes have dropped a little in price and
It is probable that they will drop still
moro hen the new plantings come
in. Onions are again in demand at
about 2fac a pound, due to the scarci
ty and poor condition of the imported
Bananas and grapes are still pleuil
ful and the consumer should use as
many of these as possible in order to
prevent heavy loss to the growers
Hogs are si ill bringing very high
prices. It is reported that one man
got as high as 25 cents a pound dress
ed weight for an exceptionally good
shipment. Dressed meat prices re
main the same as do hides. A. T.

A pompous bishop, according to the
San Francisco Argonaut, was passing
along a street in London when he
heard three costermongers engaged in
a wordy warfare. "My good man,"
he said to one in tones of gentle re
buke, "where did you learn to swear
like that?" "Lor' luv yer, guv'nor," re
piled the hawker, "yer can't learn it.
It's a bloomin' gift."
