TIIK GARDKN;ISLAND, TUESDAY, MAY 26, 1914
W.W' ' '
Were it not for tuberculosis, Ka
uai would have presented an ab
solutely clean slate for the month
of April just passed so far as con
tagious diseases are concerned.
According to the monthly morbid
ity report for the month just com
pleted by the Hoard of Health, the
Garden Island suffered from no
other disease during the month.
The Great White Planue, how
ever, managed to hang on after the
board's agents and the Kauai resi
dents had cleaned up the foci ot
other diseases. In March there had
been a small typhoid epidemic and
an occassional case of Diptheria.but
there was not a single appearance of
them during April.
Although tuberculosis was not
entirely absent during April it was
reported at the lowest figure yet
this year. The average number of
new cases reported from Kauai
has been seven or eight while for
April it dropped to three, or over
fifty per cent.
Advice To Homesteaders
On Maui, Governor Pinkham
had the following to say to home
steaders, which applies equally well
to the homesteaders of Kauai:
A few more words and I am
through. I want to say this to the
homesteaders: Don't put all your
eggs in one basket, because if you
drop the basket you will lose your
eggs. Try to produce as nearly as
you can that which will sustain
you, which will enable you to pro
cure your food, t o supply and
maintain your live stock, and your
fowls, and then take your chance
on things that must be sold for
cash and you will be much safer
than you will be if you attempt to
live on something that must pro
duce all the cash before you can
sustain yourself and provide the
absolute necessities of food and

Following is the last letter of
Ihe Marketing Division. Honolulu:
Siilcsfnrtlu'WK'k totalled . 1 1'70. 24 f n ni
SJ cim-i-iiiwciit. On thcwliolcthe supply
f inisr.'lliUH'ous produce is improving.
I'liu-imlly Urge shipments ,,f sweet
potiitoes wen' received which for a day
tir two caused :t slight oversupply. Ship-
meiits of onions are incn-ii.-iiifr. Some of
the onions are l.oorlv irrmleil u-Itl. t..
ma'.v undersized onions mixed with the
Mrst nr.ide and a few l.ajrs had not hecn
thoroughly dried. Fanners must see that
uiions are thoroughly dry and well cured
liel'ore shipment. Otherwise, they do not
keep well. With the increase in supply,
the price will prohuhly fall t ju.jn a
hundred. The quality of swict potatoes is
good andthe large supply is moving along
well. 11 a; demand for carrots is good, a
with U'ets and turnips and a larger sup
ply ol these three vcgetahlos is needed.
The cahhage market is firm, sales more
active, hut the price remains the same.
Sweet corn is in great demand hiit the
supply quite inadequate. Much of the
green corn sent in is merely green Held
coin. The market needs more genuine
The supply of string heans is more
generous hut the demand is active. More
Im II peppers and peas are wanted. The
market is never adequately supplied w ith
thest( vegetables. Uhuharb of excellent
quality was received and sells well des
pite the fact that the price of imported
rhuharh has fallen down. The t.,mato
supply is increasing, the quality good
and market active. Watermelon receipts
have fallen oil' decidedly and the price is
on the up-grade. Cooking bananas, Chi
nese bananas, pineapples and strawlier
ries are scarce. There is an aeti veileinand
for more of these fruits. I. hues ami papa
yas are also wanted in much larger
quantities and in more uniform ship
ments. Several tons of island rorn are de
manded and the supply does not seem
to lie forth coming. Irish potatoes are
improving in quality and the supply is
good, hut the price is falling on account
of competition with California potat o's.
Many more hides are wanted. The price
is linn. Constant calls an- received for
beef, mutton ainl po -k in excess of the
visible supply. The market desires the
names of all breeder's of tine breeding
stock in order that customers may le re
ferred to reliable breeders.
The demand lor poultry is active. A
few shipments of well fattened broilers
wore received. On the w hole, the con
dition of poultry i poor. Fowls need
more substantial rations than scenery
and fresh air; give them something to
eat. Turkeys are not in active demand
and the supply is adequate. Duck prices
are tirm and the supply good, but not
enough young ducks are received. More
hen and duck eggs arc needed. The sup
ply docs not keep up with the demand
for fresh island eggs.
The market is in a position to serve
more boarding houses and hotel trade.
The variety of i-laud produce is increas
ing and the quality is improving. Ship
ments of avocadoes an' improving, but
the quality of early fruit is not as good
as can Ik- expected next month.
Do not ship any more charcoal until
the present supply is taken. Honolulu is
full of charcoal.
