THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1917
Food Commission Advice
Unless homo gardeners in Hawaii
curb their inclination t o plant
perishable, quick-growing vegetables
and give more of their time and
ground to the staple foods they are
likely to be confronted with an un
pleasant situation. Thev are going
to drive out of business the small
Oriental vegetable grower, create a
feeling of resentment in this class
of agriculturalists,and deprive them
selves of the .vegetable peddler's
service when normal times return
The food commission has received
word from many sources that there
is a widespread tendency, on all
islands, to give a part of every home
garden to the growing of such things
as green onions, radishes, greeiv
beans, lettuce, eggplant, beets, car
rots and the like.
These are vegetables, the food
commission warns, which the war
time home gardener should not at
tempt to grow. Of course they are
easy to raino, for the most part,anc
doubtless help the family table, yet
they really are not helping solve the
war-time food problem for Hawaii
and America, but on the contrary
are almost certain to work unneces
sary hardships later. There ft no
apparent scarcity in most of these
vegetables, and no danger of short
age in them.
It is to the more staple foods, not
grown in large quantities by the
Oriental peddler, yet which can be
kept a long time and even can be
shipped to a mainland market if a
territorial surplus develops, that
the patriotic gardener should give
Among the desirable staples are
cabbage, Irish potatoes, dry beans,
onions( Yellow Bermuda preferably)
and corn. For strictly home use,
small gardeners may may plant cu
cumbers and rhubarb, since it is
understood that as a general thing
the Oriental does not produce these
in quantities. Rhubarb is reported
to grow best at the higher eleva
For those who have poultry, pig
eon peas, cow peas and Milo maize
are recommended by A. T. Longley,
superintendent of the territorial
marketing division. Poultry men
thus may be able to solve the high
feed cost problem for themselves,
but it is understood that pigeon peas
and cow peas cannot be recommend
as commercial crops unless labor
and land both are plentiful and
Sweet potatoes likewise may be
grown for strictly local consump
tion, but as announced recently,
these cannot be shipped to the Coast
because of the strict quarantine

We are in receipt, from the Hishop
Museum, of the Fomander Collec
tion of Hawaiian Antiquities and
Folk Lore, a very valuable addition
to Hawaiian history.
Half a century or so ago, Fornan-
der, who had given the best years
of his life to the study of these sub
jects, published his monumental
work, Polynesian Researches, in
three volumes, a veritable mine of
wealth, from which all subsequent
writers have drawn freely in their
His extensive investigations for
that book resulted in the collection
of a great mass of valuable material
which was not included in that work
and Has been stored away nil these
years, and has now for the first
time been brought to light.
The present work consists mainly
of legendary stories of the more or
less mythical heroes of the twilight
dawn of history in Hawaii, the days
of Vini, Piikea, Lono-nia-ka-hiki,

ers should be able to dispose of his
surplus. While it may not appear
quite so handsome as the Crystal
Wax variety there seems to belittle
if any difference in flavor.
Celery, cauliflower, asparagus,
melons, squash and pumpkins are
not advised as practicable crops.

urged to get in touch with the agent

arrangements will be made whereby
the sub-station at Haiku may co

the county agent would lie expected
to perform, It is hoped the agents
for West Hawaii and Kauai will be
named in a short time.
