FIFTY YEARS AGO
By J. M. LyJgate.
In old files of the Kuokoa, a na
tive Hawaiian newspaper, for May
30, 1863, we find this Interesting
editorial infotmation: In view
of the decline of the whaling in
dustry it is encouraging to look
forward to the success of sugar.
The trouble about the sugar busi
ness is that the nun costs so much
that only a man who can command
a great deal of money can under
take it. Mr. R. C. Wylie, our
able Prime Minister, having ac
quired the interests of G. Rhodes
and Charles Titcomb, at Hanalei,
is prepared to inaugurate a sugar
plantation there on a large scale.
He will build a large mill which
will be run by steam, and which
will manufacture no less than six
tons of finished sugar a day. This
seems incredible, and we will be-
ieve it only when we see it! The
transportation of the cane will be
a most difficult problem, as that is
a land oi rain and bad roads."
In those davs there were on
these lands, which include Kali
hikai and Kalihiwai, a great many
native tenants. To these Mr. Wylie
addressed a circular letter of ad
vice, in which he dwelt at consid
erable length on the phenomenal
advantages which would come to
them in connection with the de
velopment of this new enterprise.
Good, able-bodied men, willing to
work faithfully and steadily.
would be able to save $2 00, which
would give them, at the end ot
the year, the sum of $24.00. This
amount is spoken of as a Email
fortune, sufficient to build a house
or take a trio abroad, or endow a
college or a hospital.
They are also apprized of the
splendid opportunities that there
would be for their boys to learn
useful and valuable trades, such
as that of the carpenter, the black
smith, the cooper, or the machin
ist; and he counseled them most
urgently to apprentice their sturdy
sons to such trades. He warned
them that tuey could not expect
any compensation, and the period
of apprentice-ship would extend
to five or six years, but that they
would then be in a position to
earn a good living, and become
valuable members of the commu
We can imagine how this ap
pealed to the ordinary Hawaiian;
and what shoals of boys responded
to the invitation!
The plantation promising such
great things was known as Prince-
rille. from the voung prince of
Hawaii, and was for many years
one ot the most important and
successful on the Islands.
And they more than made good
their promise to manufacture six
tons ot finished sugar a day.
After Feb. 29, 1916, there will
be no further credit allowed for
pay messages at any paystation.
Hereatter the amount asked for
by central must be rung up in
coin-collector, or left with the per
son whose phone is being used.

There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
