Keeping Egg in Water Glass
Editor Maui News:
It a perfectly fresh egg la la some
way sealed up so that nothing can
get into It, it will keep good a long
- time. This is nothing new, and the
v practice ox keeping eggs is an old
one. Much experience has shown
that lime water and water glass are
the best substances to use to seal
up the eggs, and of these two water
glass is the one that has been used
in the experiments on Maui.
Water glass can be gotten in liquid
or powdered form. In Hawaii the
climate spoils the powdered form be
fore it reaches the user, so that only
the liquid form can be used here.
The solution to put the eggs in is
made by boiling 9 parts of water and
allowing it to cool. When cold, 1
part of water glass Is added and stirr
ed in. After standing a while it is
given another brisk stirring. Then
it is ready for the eggs. A quart of
water glass thus diluted will cover
15 dozen eggs. If all the eggs to be
, kept are bought at one time they can
be put i nthe container and the water
glass solution poured over them until
it covers the top layer an inch or
two. Or, the water glass solution can
be put in the container and the water
put carefully in it a few at a time
as gathered from the nests. Put a
cover on the container, put it in the
coolest place possible a cellar is a
good place, and take the eggs out
t as needed next fall. They will be
good to use in cooking up to ten
Any good, clean vessel can be used,
but one of wood, glass or crockery is
better than one of metal.
8ome points to bear1 In mind:
1. The eggs must be freBh and
clean when put in the solution, but
must not be washed before being put
2. Both fertile and infertile eggs
can be kept, but infertile eggs keep
much better, especially where, as in
Hawaii, it is impossible to keep them
3. A cracked egg will surely spoil,
and may spoil the others. So it is
better to use several small contain
ers than one large one. Not over 10
or 12 dozen eggs should be put in a
. simple container for this reason and
the one following.
4. As the first eggs in are the last
out it is better to use small vessels
so that the eggs that are first put
away can be used up first, then the
lot put away next used up next and
6. Do not use the solution a Bee
6. When I be eggs come out they
may be covered with a soft, white
coating. It is harmless. Rinse it off.
It U suggested that the people of
Maul try this the coming season.
Eggs wllltbe fairly plentiful until
June, then comes the season of scarci
ty. Put away a few dozen as an ex
periment In-the fall buy fresh eggs
for table use and use your water
glass in cooking.
This practice will be an aid to the
producers by providing larger sales
at the time of heavy laying, and a
help to the house-wife by assuring
her a supply of eggs in the fall and
TWHaiku Egg Circle will furnish
clean. Infertile eggs for this purpose.
The Circle will also furnish the wa
ter glass, which it has bought in
Quantity. E. C. Moore.

From French Front

irom nia mother and father. I have
been unable to learn his whereabouts
so want to know if he has returned to
college or is at home. I would
man you for this information..
Well let me assure you tht thla
old France Is not what it used to be
ana it will be many years before it
win regain us old self. The war has
changed conditions all over. The
French soldier has developed into a
wonderful fighter. The Russians
have upset affairs somewhat, but it
simply means a little more work for
the American soldier, and be assured
he is equal to it I have had occasion
to know the characteristics of the
Russians and so am not surprised at
their actions. I cannot describe to
you conditions as they exist, but I do
want you to know that the French
woman has become the bread winner
here In France. They' work at all
sorts of manual labor, driving trucks,
in factories, in railroad yarda and
shops, etc. Many are the broken
homes and neglected children and the
widows and orphans. It is pathetic,
but war Is responsible for it all and
God knows what the remaining
months of war will mean. Victory is
sure; the Allies will win the war but
it will be some time. However, every
American soldier is ready, his duty
is before him and none will shirk.
Soon you will know of their fighting
qualities and the Hun will know It to
his regret. The Germans have
fought a most horrible war, they
have wrecked the weaker sex, destroy
ed the gentle instincts of womanhood
and brought disgrace upon all Ger
many. One could have never be
lieved It, but facts are positive proof.
I do not believe peace Is possible un
til we win and until the Prusslanism
of Europe has been crushed.
It is cold here. Our holidays were
not like the happy ones at home but
our being here is Indeed for a noble
purpose. The morale of our men Is
excellent, their spirit is in the game
and they are on the right side. The
Kaiser attempts to Influence his sold
iers by all manner of false victories
and uses the name of God to assure
his men, that the Kaiser and the Al
mighty have bo arranged affairs that
there is nothing left but to crush the
Allies in the spring. Well let's Bee.
I do want to assure the German peo
ple that when the American Steam
Roller begins to operate it will pave
a highway from the western front to
Berlin and then demand a lasting
peace for all humankind.
Remember me' to Harold Rice, your
brother and my othe good friends

More "Eyes" Needed
By The U. S. Navy
The following nelf-PYnlnnfitnrv lot
ter has been received by Mr. Frank
February 15th 1918.
Mr. Frank F. Baldwin,
Dear Mr. Baldwin:
By request of Hon. Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the
Navy, the Literary Digest published
the following advertisement in its
issue of February 2nd., 1918:
More "eyes" are needed on every
ship, in order that a constant and
efficient lookout may be maintained.
Sextants and chronometers are also
Heretofore, the United States has
been obliged to rely almost entirely
upon foreign countries for Its supply
of such articles. These channels of
supply are now closed, and as ho
stock is on hand in this country to
meet the present emergency, it has
become necessary to appeal to the
patriotism of private owners, to fur
nish "eyes for the navy."
Several weeks ago, an appeal was
made through the daily Dress, result
ing in the receipt of over 3000 glasses
of various kinds, the great majority
of which have proved satisfactory for
naval use. This number, however, is
wholly insufficient, and the navy
needs many thousands more.
All articles should be securely tae-
ged giving the name and address of
the donor, and forwarded by mail or
express to the Hon. Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the
Navy, care of Naval Observatory,
Washington. D. C. bo that they may
be acknowledged by him.
Articles not suitable for naval use
will be returned to the sender. Those
accepted will be keyed, so that the
name and address of the donor will
be permanently recorded at the Navy
Department, and every effort will be
made to return them, with added his
toric interest, at the termination of
the war. It is, of, course, impossible
to guarantee them against damage
As the government can not. under
the law, accept services or material
without making some payment there
for, one dollar will be paid for
each article accepted, which sum will
constitute the rental price, or. in the
event of loss, the purchase price, of
Upon request the Star-Bulletin and
the Advertiser have republished the
matter together with lists of those
who have turned in and those who
have argeed to turn In glasses to H.
F. Wlchman & Co., for shipment, said
firm having agreed to receive, careful
ly list, put in order, properly pack
and forwad all glasses to Hon. Frank
lin D. Roosevelt, Assistna Secretary
of the Navy at Washington, D. C,
without charge for such service. So
far about 35 pairs of glasses have
been turned In and many more have
been promised. Some of those who
turn their glasses In have their names
engraved on the case of the instru
ment, for which the usual' charge is
The glasses desired by the Navy
Department Include telescopes, spy
glasses, field glasses, binoculars and
large sized powerful opera glasses.
If you will start the campaign on
your island you will be furthering
the Nation's cause.
