Mm HAS VERY
Interesting Annual Report Made
To The Stockholders By
Kekalia plantation made a net
profit of $532,055.54 last year,
paid dividends of $180,000 and
carried forward a profit balance of
$352,055.54. This added to the pre
vious year's balance of $102,133.87
gives a total of $454,189.41 carried
forward, The report of Manager
II. P. Faye is as follows:
Gentlemen: I beg to submit
the following report for the year
ending 31st December, 1914.
The past senson has been very
favorable for harvesting the crop.
The output has also been verv
good, we having this past season
harvested the largest crop in the
history of the plantation.
The season has been rather dry,
but the water supi ly from the
mountains has been very good, the
ditch running to its full capacity
most part of the year.
CROP 1914. We commenced
harvesting this crop on October
14th, 1913, and finished grinding
September 24th, with an output,
from 2718 acres of plant and rat
toon cane, of 18,145 tons of sugar
manufactured from 161,587.47 tons
The yield per acre was 6.68 tons
ot sugar and 59.45 tons of cane,
taking 8.90 tons of cane for one
ton of sugar.
For various reaso,n it was con
sulered advisable to Harvest more
fields than originally intended;
these fields yielded some 1800 tons
of sugar which was not included
in my estimate for the 1914 crop.
CROP 1915. The estimate for
this crop is 15,200 tons of sugar.
In spite of the favorable weather
during the last year, the cane is
rather short, and judging from
what we have already harvested I
think it safe to estimate above
The harvesting of this crop be
gan November 25th, 1914. Re
pairs in the mill somewhat delayed
We had quite a lot ot rain dur
ing November and also in Decem
ber, which again delayed harvest
ing, so that to date we have only
manufactured 2500 tons.
CROP 1916. The cane for this
crop looks very well and the pros
pects are tor a very good crop,
but it is hard at this date to give
even an approximate estimate; I
estimate roughly 16,000 to 17.000

The Modern Marriage Jest
"Don't you hate the so-called jokes about marriage
and husbands nnd wives, and things like that?" asked
the Bachelor Girl with vehemence.
Eh!" exclaimed the Bachelor vaguely. "What
jokes? I haven't been hearing any."
The Bachelor girl laughed. "I wasn't reprimand
ing you,' she replied contritely. "But I just saw, in
a magazine, one of those vulgarities, misnamed a joke,
about married life; and it incensed me. I don't believe
in being persnickety or super-critical, but I do think marriage and
all it stands for ought to be held in greater respect than it is today.
If we take from it its really sacred character it becomes a thing one
wouldn't really care to think upon."
Old Horace Greeley had some great ideas," reminisccmly mused
the Bachelor, and one of them was that 110 joke regaiding marriage,
the Bible, and something else, I have fwrgolten wdiat, should be print
ed in his paper. 1 hat was rather fine, I think. It was a standard
worth setting and maintaining."
It certair.lv was. I wish we had more men like that today in
positions that help mould public opinion. To me, there is at present
such a lack of reverence.
"The lack of reverence is merely the outward sign of an inner dis
ease. It is the lack of vision to see what is worthy of reverence. The
people who make vulgar jokes about marriage do not see to the heart
of the matter. They either do not comprehend, or else are incapable
of grasping the real significance of the love that is the core of the
whole thing, and also the dignity and importance and meaning of
home, which marriage stands for. If any one will look into these
two things searchingly, until he grasps their eternal essence, I don't
think he will either enjoy or express vulgarities, misnamed humor
about them. Horace Greelv did this, and that is the reason he
wouldn't tolerate irreverent and flippant jests about them."
"Seems to me, our idea of humor has somewhat degenerated,'
mused the Bachelor Girl.
"It has, popularity," agreed the Bachelor. "In many cases the
idea of humor consists of a misuse of the language and a copious use of
slang and semi-profanity. It is 110 longer a delightful twist of
thought, but an amazing twist of expression.
"It is in keeping witli the superficial way in which we aretakiifg
so many things. I guess the world is very much in the condition it
was in Hamlet's time," laughed the Bachelor Girl 'out of joint., I
don't think, though, I was born to set it right. The only thing I shall
try to do is to endeavor to hold up the best standards I know in regard
to those things we should reverence."
"I am willing to help," said the Bachelor. "Only T do think the
best wav to uphold the standards of marriage is to live, as near as pos
sible, the ideal married life."
But the Bachelor Girl was concocting a new delicacy in her chaf
ing dish, ami was too absorbed to hear.
