Honolulu, May 27 A four mule
team, hitched to a fully equipped
Army 'supply wagon, running nt a
gallop and (twinging from right to
left and bnck again between stakes
driven into the ground ot short dls
tanc.es npart, constitutes the spectac
ular driving contest which the Quar
ermaster's Department will stage tit
Kapiolanl Talk ou Thursday after
noon of Territorial Fair week.
The test will be between six such
outfits, for a cash prize.
Crovd8 who witness this event
wlyy not require a vivid imagination
to see very graphically how the
Army"b supply trains negotiate the
shelttoi'n fields of France under fire,
to brin.; up food anifammunition to
the boys near the front line trenches.
Over there "mule skinners" often
have to perform practically- the same
feat, with shell holes instead of
wooden slakes for obstacles, and
with boclie shells screaming over
head and bursting on every side to
encourage haste. Over there it is a
ume in deadly earnest, with the life
of the drivers and the safety and
power of the boys in- the trenches as
i prize, it also is the supreme tc;-,t
of a driver's horsemanship, both in
training his four line team of mules
and in driving them.
That this event is spectacular it-
testified by the fact that virtually tin:
same test has been used for years i.t
horse hows in America and Europe
Harry Wales, driving a four line
team of grey horses weighing 20'id
pounds each, held the World's chain
pionship Borne years ago, and by
royal order gave a special exhibition
b?fort the King of England. He was
able to drive his big horses at a gal
lop and make a complete turn i.i i

It will be the final event of a big
program of military, races and erhi

Production of Platinum
in U. S. in 1917
Less Than Last Year
The Geological Survey authorizes
According to figures compiled by J.
M. Hill, of the Vnited States Geolog
ical Survey, only 605 ounces of crude
platinum was sold by placer mines in
1!U7. This is less than the sales in
1IUG by about 100 ounces. The Im
ports of crude platinum amounted to
31. 021 ounces, not counting the 21,000
ounces of Russian crude platinum
which was received by the Govern
ment late in December.
During 1917 refiners made about 33-
000 ounces of platinum, 4. 800 ounces
of palladium. S33 ounces of osmiri-
lium. and 210 ounces of iridium,
which can be called "new metals."
)!' this amount about 7,400 ounces
probably originated from domestic
The saving of scrap platinum of nil
lasses resulted in much larger re
overics of secondary platinum met
is than i:i previous years, a total of
J. ooo ounces being recovered, us com
iared with lS.nno ounces in 1910.

Danger of Famine
Says Lord Rhonda
Maybe you've seen that expression
itjfore. It is taken from a statement
:-,ade not long ago by Lord Rhonda,
he British Food Controller. It gives
i graphic picture of the food short
ige. In fact as Lard Rhonda says:
"The food wanted by mankind does
"The word "shortage" Is not strong
enough for the situation.
"To put the matter bluntly, the
whole world is up against a nasty
thing, familiar to the people of
India, called Famine."
It is a good thiug for us to let that
melancholy statement soak into our
onsciousness. Then we'll do what
ie can every one of us, to save the
world from famine.
Some folks say that they are tired
f hearing about "starvation," and
food shortage," and similar unpleas
They arc even tired of having the
i pers urge greater production.
"When they reflect a little on Lord
Rhonda's statement, these tired ones

do, should Join the rest of us and be
ome boosters for increased food.
Thrift is one of the excellent qtlul
ties fostered by the home garden
I here should, therefore, be thrift in
he use of garden seed. This year
here is a real seed shortage so that
what there is should be made to go
is far as possible.
The home gardener too often wast
his seed by planting it too thick
!y. Such vegetables as lettuce,
iiiuskmellon. cucumber, kale, parsnip,
vegetable oyster and turnip require
only one-half an ounce of seed in or
der to plant a row 100 feet long;
onion, raddish. spinach, and carrot
require one ounce; string or lima
beans, one-half to one pint; beets,
two ounces; cauliflour, one packet;
egg-plant, one-third ounce; cabbage
one fourth ounce.
If your garden rows measure more
or less, figure accordingly, but buy
only as much seed as is necessary
end buy it early.
