What is needed tit Kalalieo
' Homesteads more than any one
thing is a first class, pure bred
dairy bull. The hoinestetids at
Kalalieo are small, averaging, in
many eases about five acres. This
acreage hardly permits the keep
ing of a cow on the premises ex
cept when she is giving a bounti
ful flow of milk. At present good
cows are scarce at Kalalieo and
homesteaders have a hard time
rustling feed for cows that only
give a very moderate quantity of
Fortunately the Kalalieo home
steaders are furnished with a gov
ernment pasture that supplies
abundant grazing for over a hun
dred cows. Use of the pasture
for their cows is allowed the
homesteaders at the rate of 23
cents per'head per 'month. The
amount collected in this manner
goes to upkeep of fences and look
ing after the pasture. A surplus
. is now accumulating from fees
collected for pasturage, and it
would be a great thing for Kala
lieo if at least a small part of this
surplus could be used for the pur
chase of a first class dairy bull to
be kept in this pasture for ser
vice. Many homesteaders have not
complied with their agreement
with the government regarding
contracts. According to agree
ment with the government con
tracts on homestead crops with
aliens are void. All contracts
on homestead land must be ap;
proved by the governor. This is
for the reason that homestead
land belongs to the government,
and not until the homesteader is
granted his patent has be a right
to mortgage or contract his hold
ing without the signature of the
governor and the land commis
sioner. The land office is at pres
ent considering several cases of
this kind that arose at Kapaa.
Evidently homesteading will be
come a less popular undertaking
when all of the homesteading reg
ulations are enforced.

another enthusiastic experiment
er witli coconut butter. Mr. Har
dy has long ago passed the expe
rimental stage with the product
and now boasts of a finished ar
ticle that has cows milk beaten
to a frazzle. Mr. Hardy uses the
same method as that adopted bv
Mr. Broadbent of Lihue. "The
extract derived in this manner
says Mr. Hardv, "looks like milk
and tastes like milk. Upon stand
ing cream forms on the surface,
which is skimmed oft' and churn
ed in a regular butter churn. Its
most surprising to watch that
stuff turn into butter. And the
butter, milk, it tastes just like
real butter milk."
Illegally collecting rent from
tennants at will 011 government
land has been a very popular and
remunerative pastime for some
enterprising individuals on Kau
ni. At Wainiea for instance sev
eral cases of this nature where
unearthed last week where money
supposedly due the government
was sticking to the lingers of pri
vate individuals who had no fight
to even make such collections.
Sad but true. Worse yet, terri
torial employees are involved.
Atorney General Harry Irwin
who was on Kauai last week has
returned to Honolulu. While in
Kapaa district he made a Hying
trip thru the fourth series to' sat
isfy himself regarding home
steading conditions there. Many
of the homesteaders at Kapaa
wished to -interview Judge Irwin,
but were unable to do so and ex
press dissatisfaction for this rea
son. Great preparations are being
made for the-races at Wuipouli,
Fourth of July. The track is
being put into good condition
with a big roller, and 'horses are
being trained there daily. Some
big events are promised and big
stakes are offered for the winners
of the races.

Experiments conducted for
several years past on Grove Farm
Plantation and recently harvest
ed seem to indicate that under
conditions -011 this particular
plantation fertilizing is not a
paying proposition. Grove Farm
fields though heavily cropped for
many years past have always had
long periods of fallow between
crops. At any rate the indica

low fields is money spent for no

Jsy way of experiment Mr. Lvd
gate brought back from Hawaii
nice lot of Ohelo berries whi
aboind round about the Volcano
and throu-'iioiit the district of
Puna. Instead of picking thei
oft' the bushes, he broke oft' small
branches covered with berries urn
threw them into a bag and in this
way they kept perfectly fresh and
sound during the five days of the
trip. He will endeavor to star
some of the plants for distribu
ting through the Pun ka Pele re
gion where they ought to do well.
The ohelo is a near cousin of the
blue berry and is excellent for
pies, sauce,, preserves, etc.
