The "special reports" which the
tuberculosis bureau of the board
of health has gathered to show the
status of each case ot consumption
and the degree of responsibility in;ProDaub'
its treatment which the govern-
nient must assume, has some of
the best social history available in
the Territory. The report is com
plete and shows everything from
the patients' earning abilitv to the
condition of his residence. In or
der to show the great percentage
of cases which the government
must care for, the Bureau has just
made an abstract of ten cases just
as thev appear consecutively in the
report book, mentioning only the
financial items, They are as fol

Multiply these problems bv 90
(there are about 900 new cases o
tuberculosis a year in Hawaii) and !
an essimate is arrived at for the;
great work the tuberculosis cam j
paign entails. Of the above cases'
the government sent numbers 3,
5, 7 and 9 to the hospital, a month
ly expense of $180, Numbers 1
and 4 were sent to the hospitals by
friends, costing $90 more. Num
ber 2 went to Japan where he will
become a charge on
friends and relatives. Number 10
is cared for by the bureau's nurs
ing system .maintained at consider- i
able expense, and number 9 is still j
carrying on the fight by himself!
(although also looked after by
nurses). The economic cost of
these cases to this territory is in
the neighborhood of $300 a month
and this number is less than a fifth j
of the number of cases reported
By waging a vigorous campaign
against the disease it can bo grad
ually reduced and this tremend
ous expense will be lessened. Let
the disease go on and the expense
will be trebled. It makes no dif
ference who pays the bill. If the
government has no appropriation
for it the people pay it direct.
Somebody pays it.
OF THE MELON FLY
(Special Cortv.M. iiiU'inv nf Tin: i.u:iKS
Washington, D. C, March 15
The Department of Agriculture has
published the following regarding
the ravages of the melon fly in
The melon fly, a native of India,
has increased to such an extent in
Hawaii since its introduction there
about 1S95, and is so destructhe.
that some plants of the melon and
jgourd family can no longer be
grown unprotected in the islands,
while the production of all plants
of this family, as well as in a in
other truck crops is injuriously
affected. The pest is believed to
have been brought to the islands
from Japan. Specimens of the in
sect are being constantly inter
cepted at California ports in ship
ments of plants and plant products
and there is great danger that it
will be introduced to continental
So far, no inject enemies of the
pest effective under conditions in
Hawaii have been discovered and
no satisfactory artificial measures
of control have been successfully
applied there. Attempts to save
cucumber and melon crops by
spraying have been unsuccessful,
though l.'rge numbers of adult in
sects were killed. It is believed
that poisoned bait sprays would
yield effective results under cul
tural conditions different from
those of Hawaii. Some crops of
the melon family are produced in
Hawaii bv covering the fruit with
cheesecloth or similar material.
The larva of the melon fly which
brings about most of the damage is
pure glistening white, except as
appearances are altered by the
color of the various host fruits in
its body. It is hatched from an
egg deposited in the tissues of the
plant. Upon hatching, the larva
usually burrows to the center of
the host plant or fruit. When
fully developed it emerges to pu
pate in the earth. The adult is a
brown and yellow fly not quite
one-third of an inch brig It feeds
principally on the juices of host
plants, upon which it may live for
as much as a year. It is estimated
that particularly hardy individuals
deros.it as many as a thousand eggs
during their life, but the average
number is much less.
