will contain many facts that will be
hailed as harbingers of better days
to come for graziers nnd ngricttltur
ists generally throughout the Terri -
It will be remembered that the
first progenitors of the predatory
insects were imported into Hawaii
through the efforts of Professor
Koebele, and represented the pith
of his arduous work in Mexico
along these lines. The insects ar
rived here in a desperate condition
of vitality. Many were, beyond
resurrection or repair nnd only a
scant half do.cn or so showed signs
The survivors were given the
greatest attention by Mr. Perkins,
who realized their possible value,
and little by little they became,
first convalescent but listless, then
healthy, and at last voracious, their
appetites turning aside, greatly to
the entomologist's delight, from any
diet but a constant one of lantana
Luckily among these foundling
uialihiuis both sexes were reprc-
,seut'ed, and the multiplication of
, species, so rife among insect life,
speedily took place. As last as a
I new brood, if that be a correct term,
I became able to find for themselves,
I Mr. Perkins started out with a se
lection of the lustiest and carefully
I distributed them around the cit
ana environs, boon they were seen
to be properly acclimated and ready
to thrive in their new home and
propagation at headquarters ceased.
The introduction was effected.
The result within six months is
patent to anybody who cares to pick
a spray of lantana anywhere within
a limit of three miles from the post
office, while in certain directions the
radii of search may be considerably
extended. The bug, a dark-colored
fly about the size of an ordinary
house fly, but less gauzy and in
finitely more busiuess-like in ap
pearance, may readily be found in
almost every sprig. It is a sluggish
insect and does not readily leave the
plant on which it dwells, lives and
raises a predacious maggot which
promptly attacks the plant from
birth with a sublime and useful dis
regard of gratitude toward the au
thor of its nourishment.
Kvery flower will be seen to have
been attacked, its pistils and stamens
demolished and its organs of repro
duction destroyed or paralyzed. The
leaves also show a brownish blight.
1 he lantana bug does not kill the
plant, but it destroys the generative
action of the flowers and absolutely
prevents propagation. The plants
affected will live for several years
unless cut down and ploughed up,
out they will be barren and the
spread of the scourge is absolutely
arrested in districts where the bug
has started its work. 'AH the gra
zier, planter or general culturist has
to do to reclaim laud, once the bug
:s established, is to demolish the
lantana crop then growing on the
The bug multiplies rapidly and
there is said to be no danger of its
attacking other plants, there being
no other growth of the verbena spe
cies on the islands, and the bug
having been adapted or evolved pre
cisely to meet the exigencies of the
case. When all the lantana has
ceased to flower the bug itself will
beextermiuated, its work completed.
It is Mr. Perkins' opinion that
there cannot be examined a patch of
lantana or u plant within Honolulu
and its environs that is not infested
and is not being rendered non-pro
ductive. Mr. Perkins' tuner will
treat the subject in exhaustive fash
ion when it is presented, which de
pends upon the return to health of

Honolulu. Oct. 17. The Britisli
ship Isleworth, due to leave for
Ocean Island via the Gilbert group
this afternoon nt 5 o'clock, will
carry on board at least fifty home
sick Gilbert Islanders, the happiest
crowd that has ever left these Isl
ands. After an absence from their native
j sands of nearly twenty years the
heart's desire of these poor people,
many of whom are halt and maimed
and nearly blind with old age and
the colder temperature of Hawaii,!
many of whom had lost almost their
last hope of seeing their "ain coun
tree" once more, they return witli
rejoicing, many of them helped by
the generosity of their fellows who
have been so fortunate as to scrape
together more than they need for
their own fare.
It seems that some must be left
behind and the scenes of separation
will be intensely pathetic. Those
who must wait for public or private
bounty to determine their lot of go
ing or staying are making desperate
efforts to raise the necessary $5.
For some time the Gilbert Islanders
time tneOllbert Islanders
trolled the industry of
making so-called "native"' hats,
and today many of them have tried
to sell their stock. The women are
frantically endeavoring to finish
partly braided hats, while their fin
gers, trembling with excitement,
can hardly ply their task, while the
men are vending their wares.
Most of the poor fellows have but
little English at their command and
wander through private gardens
carrying their hats at a loss how to
get rid of them. Three or four
sold means all the world to them,
the realization of a hope as great as
that of a man liberated from prison,
and their mute look of appeal
should tempt many a dollar from
Waltlntr on Dlplomiic).

complications. Hoth countries are

that war will be averted,

cures contain opium. The effect of
this drug is to diminish secretion of

is only temporary. As soon as the
