Poultry raisei'H who wait until

attack are likely to he successful
only in rare cases. By far the
hest plan, say poultry specialists
if the United States Department
of -Agriculture,-is to care for the
Hock in such a way that disease
will not Appear.- The aim in con
trolling the diseases of poultry is
they add, to learn how to irevent
them rather than how to cure.
To enlighten poultry owners as
to the characteristics of the more
important diseases in order that
they may intelligently use the
most improved methods of com-
hating thein, Farmers' Bulletin
!).")", "Important Poultry Diseas
es," has recently been published
by the department. The causes,
symptoms, and treatment of poul
try ailments, from aspergillosis
(brooder pneumonia) to worms,
are given in this publication.
Killing Often Advisable.
As all poultry is susceptible to
many diseases, some of which are
highly infectious and resist all
effort of treatment, the bulletiu
suggests that when birds become
sick it is often the best plan to
kill them. The greater the num
ber of birds kept upon any farm
or plot of ground, and the more
they are crowded together, the
more important are the measures
for excluding, eradication, and
preventing the development of
causes of disease.
lien disease appears among
poultry the fowls should be re
moved from the poultry yard and
ii good coating of freshly slacked
lime should be applied to the en
tire surface of the ground, ae
cording to the bulletin. After a
few days it should be plowed and
then cultivated three or four
times at intervals of a week, and
finally sowed to some crop. It is
best to leave the ground unoccu
pied by fowls for some time after
the crop lias been taken off. After
the fowls have been returned the
premises must be frequently
cleaned and occasionally disin
How to Disinfect.
The' drinking fountains and
feed troughs must be washed
every week with boiling water or
other disinfectant, and if any lice
or mites are- found on the birds
or in the house"the roosts and ad
joining parts of the walls should
be minted with a mixture of kero
sene, 1 quart, and crude carbolic
acid or crude creosol, 1 teacupful
The house may be whitewashed
with freshly stacked Hme or
sprayed with kerosene emulsion
In case of an actual outbreak of
a virulent disease it is well to add
to each gallon of the whitewash
(i ounces of crude carbolic acid
Good disinfectants destroy the
germs of contagious diseases, the
external parasites, such as lice
and mites, and in some cases the
e;i;s of parasitic worms, and
should be used frequently in and
about the poultry house.
Manuel Aguiar, of Kapan, has
.ibout S00 hags of cassava which
he would like to dispose of as
stock feed. The roots have not
yet been dug up. They are locat
ed in Ihe homestead lot formerly
owned by Fred Steel at Kapahi
When Aguiar purchased this lot
from Mr. Steel he bought the croj
of cassava along with it. The
starch' mill erected on the premi
ses is in such bad shape that it
wcuhl hardly pay to put it 111
running condition for manufac
fining cassava into starch. The
value of cassava as stock feed is
not well known. Cassava is
known locallv as pia. It contains
prussic acid, and should be sliced
and dried in the sun before feed
ing it to livestock. The curing
process removes the prussic acid.
Grove Farm plantation has
been feeding work stock with cas
sava cured 111 tins manner and
ground into ineab for a long time.
No trouble has been experienced
due to the presence of prussic
acid in the plant since they have
been feeding it. Cassava has a
higher feeding value than sweet
potatoes. The dry meal is very
much more concentrated, due to
the fact that most of the water in
food has been evaporated.
Win. Hyde Bice has fed cassava
just as it is dug out of the ground
to hogs and has never lost any
pigs from this practice of feeding,
but it would not be advisable for
farmers to feed cassava in this
form to valuable stock, for uu-
cured, it does contain a quantity
of prussic acid, and cases of prus-
nc acid poisoning have been re
ported from the use of cassava
as fed in the fresh state.
The corn leaf-hopper is doing
considerable damage to young
corn at Mahelona Hospital farm.
Although Mr. Jensen, manager of
the farm, planted acclimated va
rieties of corn, the stormy wea
ther a few weeks ago set back the
crop so badly that the leaf-hopper
was able to get a foot-hold. The
county agent has sent to the
board of agriculture and forestry
in Honolulu for leaf-hopper pari
shes. By releasing the parasites
in his corn fields Mr. Jensen will
not be able to stop the damage to
this crop of corn, but will reduce
the ravages of the leaf-hopper on
Farmers planting in new fields
or fields that have been allowed to
grow up in weeds will have diffi
culty in raising delicate crops in
these fields. Cut woriiMt and all
kinds of insect jx?sts breed pro
fusely in neglected fields, and as
soon as the land is put under
cultivation they appear to feed
on the first young shoots. Cut
worms and Japanese beetles are
especially liable to be numerous
on such fields. In breaking in
new land, cassava, sweet potatoes
ind velvet beans are desirable for
their resistence to attack by in
sects. Cane and pineapples are
popular for jtheir resistence to
Don J. Jarvis of Kalaheo, has
added a patch of strawberries to
his experiment plots. He intends
to have plants for distribution
after his patch has made sufficient
headway to allow him to cut off
runners. He now has a large sup
ply of white Madera sweet pota

gate in his exjerinient plots,
Ivalaheo farmers wlil be able te
get cuttings of this splendid vari
ety later on.
Uniform products demand the
lest prices. The county agent
can help you market a product
that can be depended upon. One
of the' greatest obstacles in mark
eting sweet potatoes is the exist
ence of so many different varie
ties, many of which are of inferior
quality. The pink Kauai Madera
sweet potato is one of the best
varieties to plant. Let the county
agent aid you in getting cuttings
