Child Welfare for Kauai
The School Nurse
Tho fundamental necessity of su&
ccssful child welfare work is tho com
munlty school nurse.
School the Place To Guard
Tho school is tho community clear
ing houao of child interests, child
needs and child dangers. Tho major
ity of tho children in tho community
may ho found and ministered to in
tho school. If thoy have any. trifling
ailments thoy can ho taken in the
early stages at school. If they are so
ill that thoy cannot como to school,
tholr absence gives notice of tho fact.
If they bring any contagious dlscaso
tho school is tho quickest placo to dp
tect its appearance, and to make prp-
vision against it; and from tho school
it can ho traced back to tho homo and
located there for treatment.
If there is any untoward condition
at home, of any nature, which affects,
or threatens the well-being of tho
children, the readiest place' to got onto
tho track of it is tho school, and from
there it can be traced back to tho
The Place To Keep Track
The children are in the school ilvo
days a week, and may he soon there,
if necessary, every one of thoso days.
To cover theso same children, in their
homes, once a week oven, would be
next to impossible. Tho school is tho
placo to keep track of these children,
and to know what is going on, and
how thoy arc.
The teachers of course know those
children intimately, and can easily de
tect when anything is tho matter with
them. But it is Impossible for them
to give to their charges anything moro
than the most superficial attention In
physical matters they are not there
for this purpose.
The-Nurse Will Tend To Them
But if there is a community school
nurse, she can devoto herself to their
physical needs, and see that thoy get
the proper attention. Very many
cases she can disposo of on tho spot,
giving them such simple treatment as
may be necessary. More serious cases
she can take, or send, to tho doctor,
or the hospital. Some she will find it
necessary to trace back to their
homes, find out tho causes and condi
tions there, set in motion tho means
of correcting or improving thoso con
ditions; give instructions to tho par
ents or friends, which shall tend to
remedy tho trouble, etc. In tho short
est possible time she will become con-
versant with the whole situation and
will have taken steps to remedy It.
Education In Hygiene
This means the quickest and surest
recovering of the child to health, and
the quickest return of tho child 'to
school. It also means the gradual ed
ucation of the child in practical hy
giene, sanitation, cleanliness, etc.
worth far moro than theoretical edu
cation out of a book. Farther more,
It means the similar gradual education
of the parents along tho same lines
and others including the caro and
feeding of children, tho conduct of tho
What Is Coming
Probably tho day Is coming when n
visiting nurse will bo employed who
shall visit every home in every camp
every day, and be personally conver
sant with every family all tho time,
and when that time comes we shall
bo saved from many of the epidemics
that now got well under way before
anybody knows about them, and the
serious cases that are already serious
before tho doctor has seen hem.
But In the meantime tho community
school nurse will do much toward
ameliorating tho conditions oven in
tho camps, in that incidental way, and
she will do great things for tho child
ren in tho schools and in tho home.
No community, with a school sys
tem,, can afford to do without such a
NEW8 NOTES BY COUNTY AGENT
Mr. Brandt wishes to tlinnk all
those who so kindly remembered
the late Mr. Hart during bis ill
ness and at the time of h$
Mr. H. II. Urodlo of Hanapcpe, is
preparing about an ncro of land for
alfalfa. Tho land to bo planted Is lo
cated near his house at Hanapepo and
was formorly planted to rice. This
land Bhould produce largo yields of
Japanese farmers at Kekaha and
elsewhere aro planting watermelons
again. This was tho big monoy crop
nmong tho small farmers last year.
Many have already put tho seed In tho
ground. In rainy or cold districts it
is still too early to plant melons ns
thoy will make a very poor start in
cold or rainy weather.
Nakamura of Hanalel, has just
harvested a crop of tho small Spanish
variety of peanuts known locally as
Chinese peanuts. Thoso peanuts are
of excellent quality and aro excellent
for seed. Persons desiring seed of
this variety should speak for It now
whllo tho supply lasts, for It will only
bo a short time before this lot will ho
sold. Apply to tho county agent for
L. D. Larscn, manager of tho Kilau
ea Sugar Company Is Intending to do
vote several acro3 on his plantation
trying out various leguminous cover
crops. Ho also wishes to try out
velvet beans extensively when' ho is
able to got seed.
Through tho live stock department
of tho College of Hawaii tho county
agent will bo able to supply puro-bred
Berkshire pigs to persons on Kauai
who make application for them. As
there is great demand for pure-bred
pigs at the present time, people should
speak for pigs in advance. At present
practically nil young pigs are spoken
for but names of persons wishing
pigs from later litters will be placed
on a waiting list to receive eight weok
old weaned pigs later on. The present
price for these pure-bred Berkshires
is $12.00 F.O.U. Honolulu.
Puro-bred Poking ducks are in de
mand. Anybody having any to sell
should inform tho county agent. Sev
eral parties on Kauai want to buy.
Settings from pure-bred Plymouth
Rock poultry may bo obtained from

lona Hospital farm at Kealia.
PENNED IN NEW YORK
In an article in tho Geographical
Review entitled Tho Water Barriers
of New York City Mr. Ellsworth
Huntington shows how everyone who
lives in Now York must pay a higher
rent than would bo necessary if the
city were built upon tho mainland in
stead of an island. He says: Consider
what It means when a square foot of
land Is worth $583. That is the high
est price ever paid in New York or,
indeed, In tho world. Tho next high
est prices aro $3C0, in Pittsburgh;
$339.50, in London; and $325, in Bos
ton. The desk at which the writer
sits measures thirty-two by fifty
inches, or a little over eleven square
feet. If it wore land in Wall Street,
it would bo worth about $0500. A
piece of land tho size of two such
desks, If It paid an income of six per
cent, would support an ordinary work
ingman's family in moro comfort than
such families usually have. The aver
age farmer in the United States has
a hundred acres of land, and gels
less Incomo from it than a piece the
size of f.wo desks would pay in Now
York. If ho owned ono hundred acres
in lower New York worth $250 a
squaro foot, ho would havo an income
of $G0,000,000. Let thero be no mis
understanding: the Income from a
piece of land no larger than an aver
ago farm, but situated In or near Wall
Street, would be about $GO,000,000 a
year. That gives some idea of what
vast sums Now York Is paying for
rent. Tho moro fact that It is a largo
city causes tho land to bo enormously
valuable, but In London, the other
great city of tho world, there is no
such inflation of values. The differ
enco is duo to tho water barriers
round New York. Youths Companion
It ED VltOSS SHOP CLOSES
On more mature consideration
the management of the lied Cross
Shop lias come to the conclusion
not to open up the shop again. An
interested friend has. taken over
the balance of the stock, and con
tributed it to the Mokihnnn Club,
which will dispose of it nt some
opportune time when it may be
more needed than at present.
Again the management begs to
thank the many friends, tliafby
gifts of labor and materials have
combined to make so great a success.
