Mr, Wise who is the father of the frog in-
dustry in the Islands. About lour years

in the Islands. Mr. Wise imported a
colony of three or four and for many days
these hatr.ichiau wonders were on exhibi

waiiatis found them a great curiosity and
the crowds that went to see the croakers
almost cleared the lawn of its flowers and
shrubbery. The colony was turned loose
in the Waiolama swamps where it has
flourished. Its descendants now afford n
means of revenue to frog catchers of all
ages and are a favorite delicacy in Hllo's
cafes. Now that the export of frog legs
has proved profitable the industry may
be promoted more scientifically.
