Plans for Pig -ClubUnder
nual Is goiiiR to have a pig club, and
in all probability there will be several
pig clubs on this island before many
months have passed. Mr. E. A. Cree

tion for those interested:
"The purpose of the pig Jclub is to
stimulate interest among children, in

With the introduction of gasoline
factors and numerous other mechani
il devices that are being used more
.lid more in Hawaiian industries,
here is going to bo an increasing
ilimand for people who can operate
this machinery intelligently. It is
now the general opinion of tractor
perts all over tho mainland, that the
,1 aater part of the trouble met with
n the use of gasoline tractors is due
10 the unintelligent operation of same.
With these two points in view, it
.eems that we could do more along
the lilies of mechanical education in
our schools than has been done. On
the other hand, it would be unwise to
sacrifice any of the good work being
done in agricultural and manual
training. It would be unnecessary to
train boys at school to repair gasoline
engines, in order to accomplish me
chanical education, but our youngsters
could obtain at school an understand
ing of the underlying principles of
gasoline motive power, we would be
preparing them to better understand
work that they would be very likely
to come in contact with later on.
A step along this direction might
be accomplished by changing the old
symbols of instruction for our babies
from the old code of G stands for
Giraff and Z stands for Zebra, to G
stands for Gears and Z stands for
The Public Take Notice
Most every one has received a little
pamphlet of Rules and Regulations of
the Fire Marshal. Mostly these rules
and regulations apply to public gara
ges, dry cleaning establishments,
moving picture theatres, etc., but
there are two or three which concern
tho general public nnd the every day
One is to the effect that every
private garage must have always on
hand two iron buckets of dry sand
for the purpose, presumably of ex
It is probably safe to say that not
one garage in a hundred observes
(his requirement or knows anything 1
Another is to the effect that no
smoking shall be allowed in nny build
ing used as a "garage," and that a "No
Smoking" sign must lie displayed.
Still another is to the effect that
all public schools are required to have
a lire drill at least once a month, and
must have a fire gong expressly and
solely for use on these occasions.
It is to be hoped the schools are
complying with these regulations.
Public buildings sueh as theatres,
schools, churches, factories, etc., shall
have one approved fire extinguisher
for each 2500 feet of floor space,
which presumably means that each
school building must be thus outfitted.
Another provision strictly prohibits
any smoking upon any wooden wharf,
pier, quay or bulkhead within the
The penalty for tho contravention
of these rules shall be a fine of not
less than $10, mjr more than $500.

Canada has gone us one better on
tho sugar ration and is down to one
and one-half pound a month.
The following is the acreage and
estimated yield of some of the main
crops other than pineapples and
cane, undur cultivation on Sept. 30,
1918, as reported by tho county agent.
This is a bad time of the year for
diversified crops, therefore the acre
age and yield are comparatively
snifill, compared with other seasons.
Much of the rice has been harvested,
and the report includes only the
crop still standing or lying in the
fields on Sept 30th:
Uiee 17C0 37000 bags
Taro -.- 133 20250 bags
Deans 05 1000 bags
Irish Potatoes 7 280 bags
Sweet Potatoes ... 70 5250 bags
Corn 35 525 bags
Alfalfa 25 500 tons

A PROLIFIC RUIT TREE
The Vi apple is an astonishingly
productive tree, beyond that of almost
any other fruit tree here. We know
of a tree that is strongly shored up to
prevent the heavily laden branches
from breaking off, and in addition
to this, some of the branches are
suspended by chains slung from the
crotch of the tree higher up. While
not particularly nice to eat raw, the
apples make a delicious apple sauce.
So housekeepers who know are glad
to get them.
