HAVE A DAY OF IT
Lnst Saturday was a red letter,
day with the children of tho Lihuo
district. Long before the advertis
ed hour they began to appear on
the Park horizon all in holiday ap
parel and all ready for all the joy
that was coming ro them.
Just how many children there
were wo have not learned but there
were G,000 cornucopias dealt out
and every one of them was cleaned
up. If you know haw many cornu
copias an average youngster can get
away with, you can figure out how
many children there were, roughly.
For tho free moving picture show
the Tip Top was filled to overflow
ing. Some of the surplus stood up;
some sat on the floor; all had a fine
time and wendod their wrty home
surfeited, sticky, tired and happy.
We know that wo voice the feelings
of tho.cliildrcn whom wo say "Thank
you most heartily" to the patrons
who provided this rare treat.
The ladies are not only welcome
but arc invited to attend tho meet-
ing at the Sixth Annual Civic Con

The County Agent
and His Troubles
Reports received from the food
commission's county agents on all
islands indicate that the task of
teaching practical, profitable agri
culture to a considerable poition of
tho small farmers is going to be
ong, hard task.
Growers of foreign nationalities
in a great many instances are not
taking readily to verbal advice con
cerning methods of planting, pest
control, cultivation and harvesting.
Very often, when the agent ap
proaches one of these whose pota
toes are sere yellow from blight, and
tens mm tnat he will give him a
spray, that will maUe the plants
green and give him greater yield,
the grower just grins self-conscious

result, the agents aro preparing to
establish demonstration fields in the
different communities, where differ
ent varieties of staple crops will be
grown by modern methods' and the
improvement over old systems can
be definitely proved.
Not all the small farmers are be
hind tho times, by any means; but
for tho many who are not, thero is
small need of instruction by tho
county agents. It is with tho back
ward ones, and with those whoso
farming conditions are not satisfac

Women havo been found digging up
potatoes with blunt sticks; farmers
havo been seen shelling corn by

farming implements, placing them
in tho hands of the growers and

This is a matter of real impor
tanco in the' Islands today, when
labor is scarco and at a premium
Shelling corn by hand is a waste of
valuable time and labor when the
man or woman can do the samo job
in one-tenth tho time by using ma
chinery, and thus have the spare
time for more productiv6 work.
Plots of land for experiments and
demonstrations in agriculture are
being obtained and set asido on dif
