hopeies when admitted. In almost
every case there has been very sub
stantial Improvement, a marked de
crease In all symptoms and a very
satisfying Rain in weight, appetite and
general well being.
Much of the credit for this must be
j;h"?n to the r.urse :n i inriu . Miss
Castro, who has worked hard nnd
eheefully through the trying days of
getting started, with sometimes In
adequate nnd always untrained as
sistants. The labor problem has been
a very trying one, and is not solved
yet, by any means. We hope In time
to have a staff of ex-patients able to
handle the situation, but it takes time
to develope them and we are still
Another .difficulty encountered was
the procuring of fresh vegetables, but
our farm is getting under way, plant
ing has commenced and it is now a
matter of but a few weeks until we
are masters of the situation.
In addition to the very probable
need of more room, more storage
room, etc., there is a very real need of
an X-ray equipment. This would cost
in the neighborhood of $3.(M0. and is
out of our financial reach at present.
Hefore getting we would need a better
supply of electricity than is furnished
by our equipment. This is not quite
sufficient for our cooking and lighting
requirements, and hopelessly inade
quate for the sterilizing plant on hand.
The thanks of the institution are
due to many friends who have con
tributed not only money and other
gifts, but have taken a live interest
in the Hospital and its welfare.
Among the donations should be men
tioned the fancy work, Hawaiian wo
ven work, jams, jellies, canned fruits,
poultry, plants, a music box with
records, and a C'heverolet touring car.
which has made the nurse's life bear
able, besides making It possible to get
things otherwise impossible.
The Farm and Financial Report has
been prepared by Mr. L. ('.. Clark, who
has acted ns Assistant Manager and
Accountant, besides handling the du
ties of Farm Superintendent in a very
efficient manner. This report is at

Mgr., Samuel Mahelona Memorial
Herewith I beg to submit the report
and financial statement of the Assist
ant Manager and Farm Superintendent
of the Samuel Mahelona Memorial
Hospital for the period ending Dec.
Laborers' quarters to accomodate
four men were built during the month
of July. Most of thho material used
was some left over from the hospital
A stable with shed room for horses
and ends that were left from the hos
and Implements is under construction.
A poultry house was built from odds
pital buildings. This will accomodate
The dairy building was already com
pleted when the writer took charge.
For the present it Is very satisfac
tory. The cottage for the farm superin
tendent was started Sept. 21, 1!)17, and
was practically completed Doc. 31,
1917. The legal bids received for the
construction of this building wore con
sidered too high, the lowest bid being
illegal, as the bidder expected to use
non-citi;:e:i labor. Permission was ob
tained from the Governor of the Ter
ritory to construct the cottage by day
labor and the work was done on this
basis. Hoth the labor cost and cost
of materials went considerably above
I the estimate due to the constantly
rising prices of material and the wages
1 commanded by mechanics. In spite
: of these factors, the cottage without
phimbing connections ami cesspool,
(as the bids were offered) cost within
j a few dollars of the illegal lowest bid.
I A very high class work was done by
I the men employed.
The small gully or ravine which
runs through the farm land together
with some of the hillside toward the
ocean, which is well grassed, have
bi-en fenced with cattle, hog and poul
try proof fencing. For the present
live Hock this proves sufficient pas
turage. I'.y the time more pasturage
is needed, it is expected that forage
crops will be ready to cut.
A calf paddock nnd horse paddock
have rlso been constructed, being so
located as to connect the dairy build
ings with the large pasture.
Domestic water has been piped to
the dairy laborers' quarters, stable,
nnd cottagge. The Hoard of Supervis
ors thought that a direct connection
by a two-inch pipe to th e water main
might leave the Kapaa school cottage
without water, at times. In accord
ance with instructions given by the
Hoard of (Trustees of the Hospital,
the matter was taken up with Mr. Mo
ragne. The erection of n four thous
and gallon tank met with his approval.
The tank has been purchased, and vfill
be erected as soon as posible.
Forty acres of land has been plowed
twice and double disked by caterpillar
tractor. Intervals of several weeks
were allowed to pass between each till
age in order to kill as many of the
weeds and seeds with which the land
was very foul. This fortv acres is
nierous to count during the every r.itn
storm. At the dale of writing. I lies
leaks have been fixed,
nurse's nutomoblle is to be added to
the buildings shortly.
Unless funds nre provided I nun
some source other than the present
funds available to the hospital, it will
ge imposllilo to undertake the munch
Ing of the hospital grounds. The pres
needed grading, plantingg nnd grass
ing of the hospital grounds. The pres
ent resources of thft hospital nre nil
required for running expenses. Pat
ients as they become fit are requested
to do light work about the hospital
and grounds, and In some cases, where
they are able to give cosldernble time
to light work, they nre given some
compensation. This Is of considera
ble help to the hospital.
The writer wishes to express his
appreciation of the general feeling of
helpfulness which seems to be held by
the people of Kauai at large, nnd of
the co-operation of the board of trust
ees and those with whom ho has

now in tirsl-chiss condition, and a con
tinuouus rotation of garden truck and
forage crops has been planned.
Three cows, one heifer and one bull
calf, a pure bred Tamworth boar, a
registered Ilerkshire sow and four pigs
cross bred, were purchased. Sixty S.
C. white' leghorn hens and I wo cocks
were donated by Mrs. Isenberg, and
Mr. S. Wilcox has given ?(ii)0 for a
team of horses.
More and better cows are needed.
Milk is one of the best nnd cheapest
foods to be had. 1 would like to em
phasize the need for better cows. The
average cow throughout the mainland
as well as in Hawaii, does not pay her
keep, whereas good cows are a paying
proposition. The first cost of animals
is high SSihi to $401) a head and up.
lint they pay big interest on the invest
ment. The Hospital Farm needs $1,000
to start a herd of good dairy cows.
More brood sows are needed, and it
is planned to get some good Berkshire
sows in the territory. More orders for
young pigs have been received by the
farm than we can at present supply.
There is a ready local market for the
cross-bred Tamworth-Herkshire pigs.
The chickens are at present doing
well, but more are needed. It. is plan
ned to supply these by hatching.
Shelters and farrow ing pens are yet
to be provided for the piggs. TWo
breeding pens and coops are planned
!':r the chickens, and extensive tree
planting for wind brek, and the utili
zation of the untillable hillsides will
iio undertaken shortly. Some varie
ties of the eucalyptus and iron wood
t.'ees would, in a few years' time, be
a source of revenue to the institution.
Considerable expense: and trouble
iris been met with from our electrical
outfit. It was improperly connected
t;p in the first place, and didnot, and
has not since given complete satis
f iction. It is Inadequate for the uses
of the hospital alone, and could not
posildy furnish any light for the (super
