Extracts From Report
Of Maui County's Agent
(Continued from Pago Nine.)
on potatoes. SugRestcd use of nico
teen or whale oil soap for aphis and
arsenate of lead for cut worms. Har
vesting of bean crop occupying at
tention of these farmers.
Called on H. Savda and maUe a
preliminary test of the Ter. Food
Commission's bean thresher. Owing
to lack of spread on the thresher
teeth, large Maul red beans were
cracked. Filing down the teeth will
probably overcome this obstacle.
Large plants are not easily handled
on this machine, so the writers' own
power thresher will be given a demon
stration at Kula.
Shipped power thresher from Hai
ku Sub-Station to De Rego's farm
Set up same and ran throiiRh some
Maul red beans on the vine. Also
gave Instructions as to handle the
outfit. Farmers round about seemed
pleased to get this laber savins de
vice installed in their neighborhood.
Called at Joe Freitas' place. The
potatoes Ter. Food Comm., left at
th's place are doing nicely. Other
potatoes are badly eaten by cut
wprms. Mixed up 32 gallons of soda
spray for testing in comparison with
Paris green Hour bait formerly used.
These people co-operate very well but
seem anxious for our assistance. Al
so secured V4 lb. onion seed for which
they paid promptly.
Tempos' place. Potatoes still free
from blight. Found that 1 lb. Arsen
ate of lead to 50 gallons water is too
weak to be very effective. Recom
mended 5 lb. to 40 gallons.
Vincent is anxious for a demonstra
tion In cleaning" by grad'jig beans by
power grader. Will arrange with Mr.
Rice to use his grader.
At the request of Mr. H. D. Sloggett,
Maui Agrl. Co's Farm Division called
to look over newly planted crops and
piggeries. Also called on J. Walsh,
Kahulul Store to get his standards
on bean grades and to discuss the
Mr. J. F. Child, Executive Officer
Terr. Food Comm. met with Dr.
Baldwin, Mr. Walsh, Mr. O'Brien and
the undersigned at the Haiku Sfcb
Station to talk over the beans situa
tion on Maul and the feasibility of es
tablishing a central warehouse with
facilities for grading and fumigating
farm products ntended for shipment
November 2Sth, the above gentle
men toured the farming section of
Makawao and Kula. Mr. Vincent, R.
Saida and others interviewed by Mr.
Child In regard to the marketing and
production of the current bean crop.
Mr. O'Brien showed the progress of
the work In spraying potatoes against
blight and other pests. Creditable
results have doubtless foiled the
spraying campaign thus far and a
number of potatoes growers are now
spraying- independently which is one
of the main objects sought by the
Maui Agent attended annual school
convention by invitation. Distri
buted Ter. Food Commission litera
ture. Called at Haiku Cannery to discuss
beans canning. Cannery authorities
becoming interested and agree to
plant an extended area for spring
At Shim's request made trip to Keo
kea to witness digging Hyland pota
toes. Made selections and demon
strated value of hill selection for
breeding up type. The results of
this planting of the Yamamoto Hy
brid are remarkable. A number of
hills-produced 4 and 5 pounds choice
potatoes. No blight attacked these
potatoes. One bag of seed furnished
by the Haw. Exp. Station yielded
about 20 bags very choice stock. At
every hand there appears evidence of
the importance of introducing these
and other new varieties of potatoes.
THE joy that's born of Christmas
gifts is not within themselves
Or you or I could pick our joys from
any merchant's shelves.
And you could buy more costly things
than ever I could give.
And though no friend should come
your way contented you could live
Yet some poor trinket rifh becomes
and treasure to the end
Because it is the symbol of a true and
The thing is nothing as it lie upon a
And scarce a thought you'd give to it
for what it is itself.
There may be thousands like it round
about you everywhere,
But let a friend bring it to you and
straightway it is rare.
For something of that friend into his
simple gift is wrought
And it becomes a precious thing a
token of a thought.
We are a sentimental clan, we fight
and Btrive for gold,
Yet treasures which we closest guard
are never bought or sold;
The things we value most are not the
gems our money buys,
But all those sweet and lovely things
that memory bids us prize.
The faded slippers of a babe not in
themselves are dear,
But in tne thoughts they bring to us
of one no longer here.
And so it is with Christmas gtfts, 'tis
friends who make them rare,
The tritie that with love is rich has
worth beyond compare;
The moment that it passes from some
frvendly hand to you
It has assumed a value that before it
And what was common in Itself is
now beyond all price
Because it represents to you some
good friend's sacrifice.

A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armlet In Europe
In last Issue a promise was rmule
that In today's paper would be nre.
Rented some data prepared by the wo
man's comm'.ttee, of Honolulu, in
which is suggested that Islands honey
can ne used in the preparation of
patriotic candy. The introduction
and recipes are as follows:
Island honey is now in the market.
and the suggestion is made by the
women of the subcommittee that it
might be used in the making of can
dies at home. Th's home-made candy
can be used to take the place of the
mported variety, thus fulfilling a
double patriotic duty by using home
products and cutt'ng down on sugar.
A generous-hearted Frenchman
once came to the aid of the American
colonies so effectively that at York
town the French soldiers outnumber
ed the Americans. Today the land
of Lafayette is ask'ng of America
100,000 tons of sugar to relieve her
distroes. We can but share our abun
dance with our Allies of yesterday
Americans consume sugar at the
rate of nearly eight pounds per. month
per. person. The French have been
on an allowance of less than two
pounds a month and must soon go
without altogether, if we do not help.
This offering may be made without
sacrifice.for there are plenty of sweets
for us other than the cane and beet
sugar that the Allies must have. In
fact, we can eatall the candies we
want with a clear conscience if we
eat candies made from honey, maple
sugar, molasses, popcorn, puffed rice,
fruits, nuts, raisins and chocolates.
These are called war candies, and a
number of recpes for their manufac
ture have been handed in by the wom
