Jan. 29, 1918.
Mr. A. Hebard Case,
School Garden Director,
Dear Mr. Case:
We thank you and Mr. Clark for
coming to see our garden. Our garden
is growing better and better every
day. We have planted Burpee's StrinR
less Beans because the beetles do not
eat them. We caught four hundred
twenty-eight beetles (428 beetles).
Some boys came in the evening with
a light and caught many. AVe catch
them from the soil every day.
The rain is helping us every day.
Our corn is growing nicely. We also
planted peanuts and cabbages.
The? carrots are growing nicely. The
carrots are the prettiest plant we
have. They are like green feathers.
Kando Sumimoto is our school treas
urer. We sold some vegetables and
Kando takes care of the money. We
will save for a baskst ball set. I am
the school secretary.
I will write next month about how
we over come weeds.

Koolau School, Kauai, Dec. 5, 1917.
Mr. A. Hebard Case,
Director of Garden Contest,
Four of us are going to take charge
of the Irish Potatoes.
We are going to have lots of diffi
culties in tilling the soil because Mr,
Mahikoa could not come and plow our
garden. We planted sweet potatoes
in our garden last year and we did
not make any money out of them.
There were lots of small insects
that made holes in the stem and in
the potatoes. ' ,
Benjamin Hano is our boss and I
think he will make a good manager,
We planted corn and onions in our
garden. We are going to work with
a will and I think we will prosper.
Yours truly, Isutoml Sakai.
Hanalel, Kauai, Jan. S, 1918.
Mr. A. Hebard Case,

During the month of December,
from the Hanalel School Garden, we

worth of radishes. Up to today we
have sold 10c worth of Chinese Cab
bage, 5c worth of Japanese Cabbage
5c worth of turnips, and 5c worth of
beans, making a total of $1.45.
During November we sold 35c worth
of radishes. Besides the above we
have given away 10c worth of beans.

Hanalel, Kauai, Dec. 5, 1917.
Mr. A. Hebard Case,
Director of Garden Contest,
Our school garden is doing well
The things that are growing in our
garden are: beets, beans, radishes,
carrots, corn, parsley, turnips, lettuce
and tomatoes. AVe planted these
things between Oct. 19 and 2G.
In making the garden look as it is
now we had a hard time. We began
working in it on the 13th of Septem
ber. The garden was a mass of weeds,
tall grass and few large tree stumps.
These had to be removed and the
ground was tilled. Tho hardest thing
was to get rid of the onion grass. It
took us two weeks in steady work
We spent 2 hr. a wk. and besides
these hours we spent 30 minutes of
our time daily.
Our garden is 40 ft. wide, 70 ft long.
It is fenced in with a chicken iron
fence. We have gained $ .45 for the
things we planted.

Tin1 Kilauea Volcano is more
active Hum it ha been fur manv
years. While the surface of tin
lake of boiling lava was a hundred
feet Itelow the; rim of the central
crater less than sixty days ago, it is
now within eighteen feet of the rim,
and ' an ovcrllow onto the seve ral
hundred ncres of cold lava in the
main crater, now seems imminent.
Some of the so-called islands in the
lake are now plainly visible ;diov
tho rim of the live lava, and can b"
seen plainly from the Volcano
The heat from the lava is sn in
tense that visitors have to shield
their faces while viewing the hike if
they are anywhere near the edjje.
Sonic of the island craps now stand
(it) feet nhove the rim of the pit.
Visitors declare that the fountain
inp; in the lake is now so violent that
white-hot lava spray is thrown en
tirely over the cold-lava islands in
Professor Jaguar, who has been
the Volonnologist for some years, is
spending his entire time at tl lp-
of the lake, making ohsrrvatioi.s
and measurements, testing gases,
etc. He says it is- doubtful if tin
volcano has ever presented more
wonderful spectacle than it does
now. The gas pressure is greater
than over has heen known he fore.
The Kilauea Volcano is heyond a
doubt one of tin greatest natural
wonders on earth.
MORRIS & COMPANY'S
SOUP A WAR TIME ECONOMY
That soup Is one of the important
items of war-time economy is evi
denced by Herbert Hoover's message
in Good Housekeeping for January,
which precedes a very practical article
on the subject. Mr. Hoover suggests
this as a refutation of the old belief
that a prosperous American household
wastes what would feed ' a French
family. To quote from the article:
"Can any one go away from the table
hungry after a thick chowder, or bar
ley broth, or combinations of vegeta
bles and meat, fish and other stock
rich in nourishment?
Soup has anesthetic values as well
as a calory value. Suppose there is
a platter of corned or ala mode beef
for the main meal of the day. Slice it
thin, arrange carefully, wreathe with
parsley, and preface it with a potato
chowder that is hot, rich and satisfy
ing. Your masculines will remember
that meal as an extra good one.
Perhaps your Sunday roast beef
looks a bit scant as you survey it as
material for Monday night's dinner.
And some one with a 'standing invita
tion' telephones you that he will drop
in for a bite. A substantial soup
comes to tho rescue."
poor but we are going to try to raise
gardens. The government came and
plowed the land for us to raise vege
tables so we were very please with it.
For about two weeks we, did not do
anything because we wanted to rest
the land. Miss Martin became our
garden teacher. We dug the gardens
and made ditches to plant the potatoes.
We were waiting for the potato seeds
to come. When the seeds came we
cut the potato seeds in many parts
and had about two eyes in each part.
Then we planted the potatoes and
covered them with fine soil. I hope
the potatoes might grow well during
I am raising potatoes and I am in
the potato contest. There are five
boys in our group. The names are
Tiuchi Hikige, ShinichI Nishimoto,
Joquin Feritias, Amallio Sallas, and
I am the captain of the group.
New Sharkskin Industry
The reniarkahly high price now
prevailing in-the Eastern states for
leather lias resulted in a demand
forshark skins for tanning purposes.
Eastern companies have offered
fifteen edits a pound for shark skin
in the crude This has resulted in
a lively skirmishing among the
fishermen for sharks. Judge Lvmcr
of Honolulu has gone to New York,
carrying samples of shark skins, mi
hehalf of Walter MacFarlanc, who
has hark skins for sale. If a con
tract is signed with the Eastern
lead out companies, plans ivill he
matured for thee equipment of ve.--sels,
and the enlisting of fishermen,
who will scour tho seas in the vicini
ty of of Johnson Island for the
"tigers of the sea."
.Max Schlemnier, the former
"King of Laysan Island," has given
over fishing rights at Johnson Is
land for the shark fishing, and it is
at tliat place the MacFarlano com
pany expects to catch sharks by
the thousand. It is not unlikely
that tho company will also secure
many bv-products, in the wav of
oil, and fertilizer materials. Shark
meat, also, can be canned.
Shark fins are considered a great
delicacy, ami it is assorted that they
can he sold for $li)() per ton. Shark
meat, also, can be sold in San Fran
cisco at fifty cents per gallon. That
is tho lowest grade. The best grade
brings 81.2") cents a gallon.
