TIMELY ADVICE BY AN EXPERT
(By F. G. KRAUSS)
Garden work for boys and girls at
home and In the schools is gaining
commendable headway in Hawaii and
especially on Maul. The splendid
success of the Star-Bulletin garden
competition, followed by the first
garden contest inaugurated by the
Maui County Fair & Racing Associa
tion which are to be followed immedi
ately by a second contest on the part
of both organizations certainly speaks
well for the patriotism and public
spiritedness of our island community.
Who can tell what ultimate and far
reaching effect these practical demon
strations will have upon our young
people as well as upon us older folk?
An introduction to the fascinating
art of making things grow cannot but
help awaken the finer qualities of
mind and soul, and once we catch
the enthusiasm our interest and sup-

Order That Success May
L. R. Mathews, director, has issued
a letter to many people on Maui con
cerning the new garden contests. In
view of the importance of this matter,
and the general interest felt in the
success of the proposition, the follow

first one a success, will you also

The world needs food Hawaii
needs it and these children will be do
ing a distinctly patriotic service by
having gardens. That is the appeal
we are making to them, not alone
that they "Win prizes" fine as that is,
but that they serve their country.
We are also going to have an
Adult's Garden Contest which will be
along exactly the same lines except
that money prizes will be given,

Jan. 8, 1918.
Editor, "Maul News"
I am sending you an account of my
trip to Honolulu.
Wednesday I went to Wailuku and
met Mr. Mathews and all the boys.
The boys were:
1. Paul Knyser of Paia.
2. James Kaal of Kaunakakai.
3. Albert Camara of Keabua.
4 Naokl Matsueda of Pauwela.
In Hana a girl won tha prize, but she
preferred to take her trip in summer
time Wa went on board the "Clau
dine" wjich left the harbor about 6
o'clock, via. Lahalna. None or us en
joyed the trip when we were sailing.
We were seasick and were very un-
land. We saw soldiers guarding as
we went on. We came to the famous
Nuuanu Pall over which Kamehameha
drove his enemies. Afterwards we
passed villages, pineapple fields, taro
patches, rice fields and the Libby
Factory. We passed Schofield Bar
racks too. This was the big stunt on
Monday we sailed home.

Our Editor asks that this paper be
made suggestive and of a cultural
nature. Well then, let it be suggest
ed that Maul permit no loafing garden
patches, during 191i. Let us pledge
ourselves to reclaim and plant every
aste place with some useful thing

To Produce Larger Yields and Better
Our average yields and quality as
well as variety is poor. Not alone
should we take advantage of the Idle
virgin patches In neglected corners,
which are often most fertile, but we
must give better and more intense
culture to the old garden plots so
that every square foot of land will do
Principal Yield and Quality Factors
Three principal factors over which
the gardener has control which have
to do with increasing the yield and
improving the quality of the product
1. Increasing the productive power
of the land by heavy manuring or
2. Planting seeds of high quality
and suitable variety.
3. Practicing proper and tho
rough tillage. Of these factors the
last named Is the simplest, but most
often neglected. With soil of even
average fertility, the preparation of
the seed bed by proper tillage and
after cultivation may make or mar
the final product.

The texture of the soil is nearly

richness. A fine mellow soil 1
much more productive than a hard
lumpy one of the Fame chemical com
position. It affords greater feeding
ground and more favorable environ
ment for the plant roots, absorbs and
retains more moisture, has bette
aeration and variable extremes of
temperature. It promotes nitrifka'
tion and the development of availa
ble plant food, by giving favorable
conditions for the development of soil
bacteria and for the disintegration
and solution of the soil minerals
Thus does proper and thorough tilla
render the plant food more ava.lable
and affords a more congenial place in
which the plants may grow.
