There Is a surprising shortage of
hogs on Kauai. There arc not half the
number of pigs that there were In
1!H4. Now is the time we need them.
Most of the families who used to keep
a pig have given it up as an unpaying
proposition. The pig pens in the
camps are mostly vacant, only an oc
casional hog house is occupied.
We cannot attribute this hog short
age to luck of feed. There is plenty
of rice bran and molasses available.
The combination of these two feeding
stuffs can hardly be surpassed as a
hog feed. Itice bran, according to ex
perts is, considered good as corn for
making gains In pork production, and
if supplemented with molasses which
is less expensive than rice bran, a
ration superior to corn may be had.
If we ask the former hog raiser
why he gave it up. he says it does
not pay, because feed Is too high.
Those who still keep a family pig
have sufficient garbage for feeding
purposes, and buy very little feed.
Where the feed must bo bought entire
ly, it is a losing proposition with the
kind of hogs we have.
The Honolulu market price for hogs
Is between 20 and 24 cents per pound,
live weight. This is double the price
offered before the war. If the right
kind of hogs were produced here, it
would still pay to feed rice bran and
molasses even though it would be
necessary to purchase them.
The trouble lies not so much in the
price of feed as in the kind of hogs.
We need better hogs. Stock that will
make the best use of feed. Good stock
will make the gains necessary to pay
for purchased feed, and yield a profit
to the hog raiser.
We must improve our stock now.
The best way to do It is to import
some good boars, and place one in
each community. The plantations
are the community centers. If each
plantation kept a good boar for serv
ice purposes, the plantation people
who keep pigs, could breed a sow to
a good boar. It would be but a short
time and we would notice a decided
improvement in the type of pigs
found here. It would result in a
profitable home industry on Kauai,
and a useful consumption of some of
our local by-products. We must also
educate our people to the advantages
of better hogs. We hope that our pig
clubs among the children will accomp

A New Fuel
Waste mol.isses Is surely comin;;
Into its own. The latest development
of value is that of Makawell, where
it is used as a fuel substitute for
coal for the camps. It is mixed with
the coarse trash dust that comes
from the mill, and made Into a sort
of stiff pudding, moulded into suit
able size and shape and then dried
in a hot air chamber until it becomes
a sort of coke briquette that burns
very readily and makes a very ex
cellent substitute, not only very much
cheaper than coal, but much better.
SECOND HAND STEAMERS
..A good deal of old sugar machinery
has gone to the Philippines at very
profitable prices, and more Is going;
and now they are. after, steamers.
Seed potatoes should be selerti d
from the best yielding hills. Small
to medium sized potatoes arc gener
ally selected as they produce more
plants per bushel of seed than the !
larger potatoes. While the contin
ual selection of of small potatoes for
seed might seem a bad policy numer
ous tests have shown no disadvant
age in using small potatoes' provided
care is exercised in selecting them
from healthy hills. I?y going through
the field at harvest time and selett
ing the best hills' great improvement
can be made in the yield and quality
of the 'crop. In making this selection
for seed' hills bearing potatoes of
the desired type for market as regards
to size' shape and color should bo
selected. To select seed with a view
to all of these points requires .Trc;:t
care and close study, but the gjod re
suits obtained even in a sin;;le si.'.i : o.i
more than warrant it. For "i best,
results it is necessary that this scc
tion be followed up from year to ye w
keeping the same ideals in view each
eu separate from tne general crop
followed up from yer to ye.'.r" keep
ing the same ideals In view each
seaso.i. The stock selected for seel
must be picked up carefully and stor
avoid unnecessary handling as it r
cd seperate from the general crop'
suits in bruises which introduce dec. y.
The seed should be gone over again
diseased roots discarded. All seel
should be treated, before bedding,
for the control of the various diseases
which attack the potatoes. Dip th'j
seed for about eight minute in a
solution luade by dissolving one ounce
of corrosive sublimate in eight ga!
Ions of water. A barrel is most con
venient receptacle for the so'ution'
the Bced may be Immersed in sacks.
After removal from this solution
they should be rinsed in fresh watet
and allowed to drain for a few min
utes before bedding.
Two small vessels, one of them well
known to us the James Makec have
gone and are now in operation there.
They were bought by shrewd Philip
pine buyers for some $70,000, were
repaired at a further cost of $45,000,
were conveyed to the Philippines and
there sold for $215,000,. realizing, a
handsome net profit of $100,000.. To
anyone who ha3 second hand material
in either of these lines, sugar machin
ery or steamers, now is the time to
sell, and the Philippines is t'le place.
