Items of Interest to Our
By O. W. SAHR. County Agent
Having been awarded the control
of the government irrigation water of
Kapaa, the Kapaa Homesteaders' As
sociation hao taken steps to see that
all matters pertaining to the water
supply are looked into and cared for.
So far the water question has worked
out splendidly at Kapaa, and it seems
as if Land Commissioner Bailey used
good judgement in awarding the con
trol of the water system to the associa
D. Stayson, who was appointed wat
er tender by the directors of the asso
ciation, is taking a very activo interest
in the matter, and is faithfully per
forming his duty of distributing the
water to the homesteaders, giving
everybody a square deal. Since he
has taken over the control of the
water there has been very little
trouble about irrigation matters, and
with a few exceptions, everybody
seems to be well satisfied. There are
still a tew homesteaders, however.
who have not taken as much interest
in the water question as they should
have, and they ought to be reminded
to join the association at once, as it
would be to their benefit to have a
say in matters pertaining to the home'
steaders and especially the irrigation
The following rules and regulations
were recently drawn up by the direct
ors of the association, in order that
the water tender should have definite
work laid out for him. The rules for
the water tender are published here
in order that homesteaders should
know what authority has been given to
the water tender:

Kapaa Homesteader' and Coopera
tive Association. .

2. The water tender shall distrib
ute the water to the homesteaders and

it be necessary to clean and repair any

ors for that purpose.
Keep Cost Records
of Your Crop
There are many homesteaders who
are working in the dark. They could
help themselves considerably by de
voting themselves to a study of the
cost of producing their crop. By keep
ing records of coat the homesteader
only fits himself to better carry on
his work. Farming, locally called
homesteading, is like any other busi
ness and requires the closest attention
of the man who intends to make a
good living from it. It means living
on the place, getting right down to
hard work and keeping track of every
jitney that is expended.
Nobody expects the homesteader to
get out and load cane. There is labor
available for this work. By doing the
hardest work would only tire himself
for the work he is really expected to
do. That work Is to see that his home
stead is farmed according to the beat
methods available and to its highest
economic point of production. This
is exactly what he should do. He is
the manager of his place, also of him
self. He must direct his energy where
it does the most good. He is his own
luna, bookkeeper and business man
ager. The kind of homesteader who
lets the plantation manage his place,
keep his records and direct all of his
operations is merely a parasite on the
community. He is wot farming. He
is homesteading in the sense of the1
word as it is understood by too many
of the local people. Too many home
steaders who are now on the land are
being criticised. Homesteading is
getting a black eye on account of a
few who cannot see the work laid out
for them. It is a sad fact that there
are many people on the land who
actually cannot find anything to do
on their places themselves. All their
lives they have labored, and now that
they are able to hire labor, they think
It Is their duty to hang around, and
make themselves a nuisance to their
more industrious neighbors. They
should consider that although they
now can afford to. hire labor" for the
tedious tasks on their places, they can
not yet afford to hire a manager and
bookkeeper to look after their interest
in their homesteads.
It is up to the homesteader it he
wants to get results, to manage his
place according to the latest and most
up to date methods. Find out where
your money goes. Find out where you
are throwing It away and where you
can put to a better use what money
and time you can spare to put into
your place. Do not expect the planta
tion to "wet nurse" you. The best
they can do for you is provide- you
with a good contract for the disposal
of your crop and render you good
Joe Bento of Kalaheo Homesteads
Is putting in five acres of cane on his
lot above the Lawal Cannery. Bento
raised a fair crop of corn this season
but as this is the fourth successive
corn crop from this land he deemed
it wise to change over to cane on a
part of his land at least.
The 24-inch wood, syphon pipe to
replace the big trestle flume which de
livered the irrigation water across to
the Hanamaulu hill slopes, is just be
ing completed and will be in service in
a few days. It is a little over a mile
long, and will be entirely on planta
tion fee simple land1, which the dis
mantled flume was not.
