There have been two or three dozen
homesteads far mauka In Hanalel for
ten or twelvo years that have not
been a conspicuous success. Thoy
were taken up mostly by Hawaiians
of the neighborhood, mostly for the
sake of taro land there. These home
steads were Of the 999 year leasehold
variety, which could be occupied
without rent so long as the bonaflde
homesteader or his heirs lived on the
same and improved them.
They were greedily taken up at the
time, and some little .planting and
building were done there, the latter
being mainly of the ephemeral grass
Long since, however, the enthusi
asm evaporated, and for years, with
two or three notable exceptions, they
have been lying there neglected and
abandoned. And not without Justifi
cation. The lands are a long way
mauka; the roads are very bad, at
any rate in the winter months; the
taro disease is bad there, so that the
crop Is scanty and uncertain; the re
gion is cold and wet much of the time,
and lonesomo all the time, so natur
ally it does not make a very strong
appeal to the Hawaiian.
Now these abandoned and neglect
ed claims are being cancelled, the lots
are being reappraised and they will
be put up for pre-emption under the
more modern form of homesteading.
And the money realized from the
sales will be put into durable, good
They are comparatively small lots,
consisting generally of one acre of
taro land and from 2 to 10 acres of
Seventy Years Old
Drives 22,000 Miles
On her return trip, Mrs. William Up
ton, the seventy year old woman, who
alone drove a Ford runabout from San
Francisco to New York City visited
the Ford Motor Company's main office.
She was introduced to the officials of
the Company, was photographed, held
In her hand a Ford check worth two
figures of millions, recounted the ex
periences she had encountered on her
trip, and before leaving made arrange
ments for securing a new Ford car
immediately upon her return to her
home in Bakersfield, California.
Mrs. Upton has already driven her
present Ford more, than 22,000 miles,
7,000 of which were driven since she
left San Francisco, May 11th, the
longest day's drive being 160 miles.
At Springfield, Illinois, Mrs. Upton's
birthpluce, she plans to dispose of the
car and after visiting her many friends
there, will return home via rail.
When commenting on her trip, she
said that In making the drive from
the Pacific to the Atlantic, it had not
been her purpose to follow a direct
line of travel, but to visit the most
cities and places of interest. She
visited the Petrified Forest, spent
several days In the National Capitol,
drove to Mount Vernon, visited the
site of the battle of Gettysburg, and
then after touring to some of the At
lantic Coast cities, made her way to

A New Sugar
MaltSugar is a new substitute for
the old-fashioned article which comes
to hand very opportunely in these days
of sugar shortage, and of prohibition.
The latter Bets free the malt basis
from which the sweet is made, and
the sugar shortage creates a large
demand. It can be very readily made
by the breweries, involving only a
slight change at the end of the process
for making beer. It is said to be a
palatable sweet with somewhat the
flavor of honey. It exists only in the
syrup form as it does not crystalize,
so it Is not quite as convenient as
sugar for table use, but for cooking,
baking, candy making, and for use in
soft drinks, etc. it is entirely satis
factory. It will sell at from 'Seven to
nine cents a pound in barrel lots, and
as soon as it becomes well known,
will be in demand by housewives. It
will hardly cut much figure, in Hawaii.
