fact that most of the
people who once wear
($5 & $6)
invariably re-order the same

OH THE HISTORY OF KOLOA
(Continued from last issue.)
For Frying-Fcr Shortening
For ' Cake Making
Among the lawyers who came to
practice before the Circuit Court
was Mr. V. Claude Jones, known
among the Hawaiians as "Ka Ai-
ko" which meant The Eagle."
He was tall and spare with stoop
ing shoulders and prominent Ro
man nose whic h the natives
thought resembled an eagle's beak,
Mr, Jones was quite a character,
who had practiced law in the Cir
cuit Courts of the Western States
at the time Abraham Lincoln was
practicing, and had lived in Mexi
co. One practice for which he was
noted was the chewing of large
quantities of tobacco, and would
at times, emit enormous quantities
of liquid tobacco. At one time
when he wns arguing a case before
a jury at llilo, and was passing up
and down before the jury, each
time as he reached the end of the
front row of jurors he would eject
the liquid tobacco into what he
supposed wns a cuspidor. Finally
the cud man on the jury looked
down and found his best Sunday
beaver partly fdled with liquid ex
tract of tobacco. He gave a very
audible grunt of dismay and ex
claimed "Kahaha"! As might be
expected the Eagle lost that case.
The home life at Koloa was very
pleasant, Ourmother, like nearly
all of the missionary mothers, was
New England born and had train
ing and ingenuity in household
matters and making the best of
conditions. The children -were
taught to be helpful and were in
structed in the early school branch
es. The clothing was home made
and with a large family this entail
ed much work and care for the
mother. Our food consisted o f
bread and other articles made from
flour, vegetables., . chickens and
eggs with fresh meat and fish when
thev could be obtained. The most
common vegetables were taro and
sweet potatoes and in the winter
time there were garden vegetables ! caused
and softened, and then salted
slightly and placed in the hot milk.
When eaten a little sugar was
The sugar in common use was,
of course, the brown sugar from
the mill. White sugar was a luxury
and was generally used only when
we had company.
For many years we had no water
available for irrigation and the
summers, were dry, but about
October my father would have a
garden prepared and beds made
for vegetables, and with the first
rains which came in November the
garden seeds were planted. The
boys as they became old enough,
assisted in this garden work We
also milked the cows and made
butter, swept the yards and per
formed most of the chores. Each
child as it was able had its duties
This early training to be indus
trious and have a sense of care and
responsibility wns of great benefit.
In the later days when Chinese
servants, and afterwards Japanese,
have become so easily available it
is too often the case that children
miss that training,
During the early days the mis
sionary families often had to en
tertain company. Some of fhe visi
tors were acquaintances and friends
and many were strangers. There
were'times the good mothers be
came weary with the extra work
and care of entertaining strangers.
The hospitality was given without
grudging and the best things were
offered to the guests, and manv
times the appreciation and kind
ness of the guests fully compen
sated for the labor; but there were
instances of strangers going away
and telling to "the luxury" in
which the missionaries lived, little
knowing how economies had to be
practiced after their departure and
of the weariness which they had
such as corn, beans, beets, turnips,
carrots, etc. Rice also was one of
the staple articles. Rice was not
grown in the Islands in those years
but was imported from China and
sometimes Carolina rice was to be
Paiai, made from taro cooked
and pounded until it formed a hard
stiff paste, was cut in slicos and
fried. We were very fond of Paiai
cooked this way and eaten with
molasses. Among the favorite dishes
for supper was hard bread which
was first softened with water and
then simmered in hot milk. The
Oil for illumination was whale
oil which was dark colored and
sticky, and the light given was dim
Sometimes by some good fortune
sperm oil would be obtained which
gave a much better light. When
kerosene oil was first introduced
it was quite a wonder. It certainly
was a great improvement over the
old whale oil lamps. Candles were
kept for special occasions. General
ly these candles were home made
It is a fact that generally the re
collections of pleasant experiences
are more enduring than of the uu
pleasant ones, and in reviewing
bread was generally obtained from I the life of these days the recollec-
whaleshins. and was the good old tions are in the main very plea-
type which came in large , round
cakes about five inches in diameter
and from three-fourths of an inch,
to an inch in thickness. These
cakes were saturated and swelled ! Honolulu, January, 1915

and. was pervaded with a spirit of

Kapaa Water Data
The current issue of the Hawaii
an Forester it' Agriculturist con
tains the following with reference
to water in the Kapaa stream:
"Chairman' Waterhouse advised
that as per letter from the Govern
or dated February 25, 1915, he
had approved of an allotment of
$700 for the purpose of covering
the equipment and expenses inci
dent to the installation of stream
guaging'stations to be established
on the two main branches of the
Kapaa stream, Kauai, by the Divi
sion of Hydrography during the
six months period ending June 30,
Further along, the report says:
"Equipment for two continuous
record measurement stations o n
the two main branches of the Ka
paa River above a 1 1 diversions,
ind homesteads, has been ordered
and these stations will furnish
run-off data of the Kapaa river
which will be of great value to
homesteaders and to the Territory,
in adjusting future water distribution."

the taste of grease. They now ate tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco tan be used to fry fish, onions, dough

after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
