THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1917.
Another Maui Man
Leaving For Front
David V. Townscnd, civil engineer
with the Wailuku Sugar Company,
has been accepted in the corps of
United States engineers for service in
France, and has already reported to
headquarters on Oahu. A new regi
ment of engineers is being formed
from California and the Hawaiian Is
lands, and it Is into this that Town
send will go. It is understood that
he will be appointed a first sergeant
in one of the companies.
Townsend is an Islands boy and Is
regarded as a very efficient engineer.
He is a graduate of an eastern col
lege. lTp to a short time age he was
second lieutenant in the National
Guard, but resigned to enter the offi
cers' training camp.
It is rumored that at least one other
civil engineer may be called from
this island for the same regiment,
and others will go later on with differ
ent units. The engineers will be
used for railroad, road and construc
tion work generally in the war zone.
As they are all trained soldiers, they
will be able to fight as well as bu;ld
railroads and barracks.

physical examination at Fort Shafter

notified that he would have two days
leave he came over, on Monday

The following notice, which is post
ed conspicuously all over the States,
has reached the Islands:
Don't discuss naval affairs or the
movements of ships or their cargoes
or courses with strangers or foreign
Don't trust any one you do not
know. Enemy spies at home and
aborad will try to draw you into argu
ments and entray you into telling
them about the movements of ships,
their cargoes, the courses steered and
the steps taken to defend our ships.
Don't forget to report at once any
person who tries to get information
from you or from any one else in your
Don't forget that your want of care
may help the enemy, and lead to the
loss of American ships and the death
of their crews.
Secrecy Means Safety.
Lahaina Park Fill
A. L. Burdick, assistant superinten
dent of public works, returned to Ho
nolulu by the Claudine Wednesday
night, after having looked into the
liana wharf proposition and other
Maui, matters in which his depart
ment is concerned.
The most important, thing done here
by the assistant superintendent was
to approve and accept the swamp fill
at Lahaina, work which has been com
pleted by the Hugh Howell Engineer
ing Co., Ltd. This fill is oppsite the
armory, in Lahaina, and covers seven
and a half acres. It will be the site
of the new, public park and is ideal
for that purpose. The soil is of the
finest, it being silt brought from seven
miles out on the Mahinahina land.
It was dug up with a steam shovel
and hauled in on the plantation
The bulk of the work on the park
site has been completed in four
months, 40,000 yards having been
finished in that time.
It is reported that, in their zeal to
make a good job of it, the engineer
ing company lost money on their con
ACCIDENT TO CAR
Miss Irene Davison, daughter of
Mrs. George Freeland, was graduated,
last March from St. Luke's Hospital,
San Francisco. Miss Davison passed
the State examination required of
all nurses who desire to practise
their profession in California and
since that she has joined the unit of
the University of Californ'a, and will
leave for the front when it is called.
Charles E. Davison (Teddy), son of
Mrs. George Freeland, is in the U. S.
Navy, on the Alert.
To Try Out A
Th p information comes that Hono
lulu that, a forty-acre tract of land on
the slopes of Haleakala, Maui, is to
be used by the U. S. Experiment
Station as an experimental farm for
the benefit of homesteaders. The
tract is one of thirty-seven forty-acre
pieces which are to be thrown open
to settlers by the territorial govern
ment in January.
J. M. Westgate, director of the fed
eral experiment station, is the origin
ator of the plan. He has been aided
in working out the details by F. G.
Krauss, county extension agent for
Maui. They will endeavor to place on
the tract a small farmer of experience
who will carry out experiments in
crops under the direction of the sta
IS. G. Kivenburgh, land commission
er, has promised his cooperation, and
the food administration will also give
any help possible.
The selected farmer will receive a
small sum monthly to insure him
against losses from the experiments,
and all the proceeds of the tract will
be his. The land is in the corn, bean
and potato belt of Maui.
WAILUKU HAS RAIN
A series of showers started in
central Maul about 10 o'clock Wed
nesday night and kept up until yes
terday, when the station in Wailuku
reported a total fall of 1.30 inches.
In the entire week before there had
been no precipitation whatever.
There have been six clear days out
of the seven.
The highest thermoneter in Wai
luku was recorded on Sunday, when
83 was reached and it so happened
that the lowest (io was reached on
the morning of the same day.

Reports have come in of an accident
to a Ford car belonging to plantation

Weekly Market Letter
The general condition of the mar
ket has remained about the same dur
ing the week. String and wax beans
are very plentiful and selling at from
2 to 3 cent a pound.
The price 'of eggs is the same as
last week but they are a little more
plentiful. The price of island poul
try has dropped n little during the
past few days.
Bananas are plentiful and the Divi
sion is receiving large shipments
from growers on Oahu. These are
part of the bananas that would natur
ally be shipped to the mainland if
shipp'ng facilities were not In such
a bad shape. Through a lack of
steamship space, these bananas are
rotting In the fields and the Divi
sion would Hke to see all the people
of the islands earnestly take up the
slogan of "A Banana a Day," and in
that way assist in disposing of the
island bananas. Bananas are very
nutritious and the children should be
encouraged to eat them as well. These
bananas that are being offered to the
public at five cents a dozen retail,
are the same as those sold on the
Mainland for from twenty to fifty
A shipment of Irish potatoes were
received from Kauai this week which
are being sold for $2.25 to $2.50 a
hundred. Next week we expect to
receive a large shipment of Islands
cabbage from Kauai which is report
ed to be of exceptionally fine quality.
The past week saw a reduction of
two cents a pound on all hides due
to a similar reduction on the Coast.

By E. L. B.
If ever you're discouraged and life
looks dark and grim, if you cannot
see the sunshine and your lamps arc
always dim; then consider what it
might have been, what you missed in
sorrow's sphere, if you'll only count
your blessings, you need have naught
to fear. Forget the petty, trivial woes
the pitfalls of a day; imagine how
you'd like those bombs in the thick
est of the fray, that poisoned gas, that
bloody field, now tell us, come now,
say. Your troubles are mere pebbles
on the sandy shores of time, your
fancied wrongs are wavelets in the
world of business grime; buck up,
boy, count your blessings, you've
missed a lot of joy, by letting every
detail so fret you and annoy.
