THE GARDEN ISLAND, TEUSDAY FEBRUARY 15, 1916
ON SAFE FARMIN6IITS FRIENDS, BUI-
The U. S. Department of Agri
culture has circulated a paper
through the South, much of which
woukl be profitable practice for
the small farmer in Hawaii. It is
called "Safe Farming" and the
safety measures recommended are
First. Produce a home garden,
the vear round, paying special at
tention to a plot of Irish or sweet
potatoes sufficient to supply the
family with food of this character.
Second. Produce the corn ne
cessary to support all of the people
on the farm and the live stock,
with absolute safety.
Third. Produce the necessary
oats and other small grain to sup
plement the corn as food.
Fourth. Produ e hay and for
age from some forage crop, suffici
ent to supply all of the live stock
on the farm. Use legumes such
as clover, cowpeas, velvet beans,
soy beans, and alfalfa for the pro
duction of hay and to enrich the
soil with mitogen and humus.
Fifth, Produce the meat neces
sary to supply the people, through
increased attention to poultry and
hogs, especially. Plan to increase
gradually the number of cattle and
other live stock, so as to have a
sufficient number to consume the
waste products of the farm and
make the waste lands productive.
Sixth. After all of these things
have been amplv provided for, pro
duce articles for the market.
Not all of this i s applicable
literally to Hawaiian conditions,
but the general idea of it certainly
is. Supply the needs of the farm
family and the stock from the farm
itself as far as possible. A farmer's
net income is the difference be
tween what he pays for what ha
buys and what he gets for what he
sells. He can "make money", quite
as certainly bv having less to buy,
as by having more to sell, a fact
which is in danger of being over
The Inter-Island Steam Navi
gation Company has planned spec
ial rates between the various is
lands and Honolulu during and
for several days after the Cainiv.nl
period, the following in the sche

The following paragraph in the
latest icpmt of the Market Divi
sion should be of interest to "small
fanners" of Kauai:
"The demand for Kauai sweet
potatoes is increasing all the time,
and producers who are planning to
plant sweets should get this varie
ty. The market has been short
for the past two weeks."
The list of newly appointed of
ficers of the Fourth (Kauai) regi
ment of the National Guard as
published in the last issue of this
paper has been approved bv the
Adjutant-General, notice of ap
proval having been received Fri
day morning. Formal orders to
that effect will arrive today or to
morrow. The only changes of im
portance in the list are that W, C.
Averv has been shifted from a
quartermastership to the lino as
first lieutenant and Dr. A. J. Der
by takes the place of Mr. Avery
on the stall.
"Honolulu", the official publi
cation of the Honolulu Chamber
of Commerce, has the following
comments on the shelving in Con
gress of the Nawiliwili breakwater
"We regret the elimination of
the Nawiliwili breakwater project
from the Rivers and Harbots bill,
on account of it being a new pro
ject. Chairman Stephen M. Spark
man of the Rivers and Harbors
Committee, and Delegate Kalania
naole were appealed to by cable
and a special committee urged fav
orable consideration of a resolution
which was adopted by the rectnt
Civic Convention in the interest of
the project; however, it seems al
most useless to urge appropria
tions for protection of life and
property when, as one Congress
man is reported to have ironically
said We only have $16,000,000
this year for Rivers and Harbors
and we must spend it judicially .
We wonder how much of the forty-six
was alloted t o Kissmnie
Creek of Florida, which is abso
lutely dry ten months of the year,
and of which Congressman Frear
says: No sign of life can be dis
covered along that famous creek
save one lonesome 'lame duck' of a
speculative turn of mind that sits
gazing hopefully into the invisi
ble river filled with impeiceptible
water. Florida should take over
the creek bed and turn it into a
highway tor the use of northern
tourists desiring good speedways
for their heavy touring cars."
The countv of Kauai is again
obliged to register pay warrants
this coming a little earlier than
had been expected. To date some
thing like S800 of warrants have
been registered. These are en
tirely against the road tund, whicn
i s completely exhausted. Road
money will be available, however,
in March and these warrants will
be taken up. That would not be
so bad, but in a short time other
funds will be running low and
heavier registration will be called

MANY TRUANTS RE
BROUGHT TO COURT
When the Lihue district court
opened for business Saturday
morning it was to find in the room
a large delegation of school chil
dren and their parents, principal
ly Portuguese. It developed that
all the children were from Lihue
school, and were brought before
the district magistrate under war
rants sworn to by Miss Mum ford,
principal of tVe school, charging
them with truancy. After inquir
ing into each case the magistrate
ruled as follows:
Caldina Costa, Kenchi Shitnbo,
Takao Yamasaki, Hiruki Tachi
kana, of Halehaka; Frank Gn
salves. Macamina Jesus, Mary
Jesus, Hulda Jesus, Antonio Kolo
coig, of Kapaia; Benito Vera Cruz,
of Lihue, were excused by order
of Court on account of sickness.
Kim CheNehege, of Kapaia, was
excused bv order of Court on ac
count of illness of father at Kealia.
Oseo Matsunaga, of Lihue, 14
years of age, excused by order of
Court from attending school for
the future; Act 24, Section, 28(.,
No. 5 as she is suitably employed
under the direction of her par
ents. Antonio August, of Kapaia, re
primanded. Mother says, "She
licks him when he plays truant."
Toby Rodriguese, of Kapaia,
severely reprimanded and ordered
to attend school regularly.
Toe Cabral, of Kapaia, excused
on account of illness of mother, as
there is no one to take charge of
the younger children in the family.
After months o f patient and
strenuous work, the committee
having in hand the duty of pub
lishing the proceedings of the Civ
ic Convention held at Lihue in
September last, has finished proof
reading and in the natural course
of events the booklet will shortly
appear. The difficulties under
which the committee has labored
will be partially understood, per
haps.when it is recalled that short
ly after the Convention, the offici
al stenographer, Mr. Melamphy,
died, leaving his notes in such
shape that only small parts could
be utilized. It has, therefore, de
volved upon the committee to re
assemble most of the facts of the
proceedings. On that account the
booklet will not be so voluminous
as had at first been planned, but,
from all accounts, will contain all
the important data concerning the
work of the Convention.
