A GOOD YIELD.
Thirty-two acres of sugar cane
have ju&t been taken off a field at
Male ah a, which belonged to Mr.
Fred. Maefarlnnc. The yield was
240 tons, or almost seven and a half
acres to the ton, from a small lot
that he had planted at Makafia on
this island. The cane was of the
species known as Lahaina cane and
had only been planted thirteen
months, because, in accordance with
Mr. Macfarlanc's contract with the
Waianac plantation, he had been
compelled to cut it in February. He
had thirty-live acres in all; three
acres were cut for seed; two acres
yielded at the rate of eight and a
half tons to the acre, and the remain
ing thirty acres went seven and a
half tons to the acre. The owner
however is not satisfied, because, if
sugar were not at such a low figure,
he would have made more money.
He finds, from experience, that the
crops this year must all produce un
precedented yields, in order to make
any profits for the owners, in conse
quence of the reduced price of sugar.
A MOONLIGHT VISIT
Was paid one night, last week, to
the barracks of the Mounted Police,
at the invitation of Lieut. Sinythc.
Jumping into his trap we sped through
the cool midnight air behind a pacer
that did its mile in three minutes.
Arrived at the entrance to the bar
racks we found one of the troopers
on guard and, on driving through
the grounds, we were hailed by "Who
goes there?" The reply of "Friend"
being responded .to by "Pass friend,
all's well," we reached the stables
where a man was ready to take the
horse. There arc now sixteen re
cruits who arc daily instructed in
drill and the duties of their olllce.
One squad of seven was ordeied to
"fall in," that number being the
necessary limit because Lieutenant
Smytlie has been nimble to obtain any
fi mom caruincs inougn ne nas ire
s (lticntlv annlied for them. He is con
sequently compelled to go through
double drill every day, being able to
instruct only half the men at a time.
There are a dozen young horses in
the stables, which arc being broken
in ; six of the men wlcep in the regu
lar dormitory and tho oilier ten in
two tents, live in each. The roll
was called, there were no absentees
and n squad was put through tho car
bine drill, executing the vaiious mn
iHBiivrcs with great promptitude and
precision, considering that they had
only handled a rifle for ten days
under the instruction of their lieute
nant. The men aie young and ac
tive ia appearance, and, in their
rough blue shirts and white trowscrs,
they looked far more like trained and
useful men than their buttonleas,
brethren at the bai racks of the
"A FISHY YARN."
Mr. Dowser, of directory fame, in
his "Itinerary," gravel' says:
"In the sea about here (Kuuai)
sharke arc numerous, and the na
tives ninko n business of catching
tlicin when they arc asleep in the
caves which abound on this const.
The Kanaka is proverbially known
as a good swimmer and diver. Ry
the aid of these accomplishments he
performs his feat of shark catching
in a manner which would be incredi
ble if it were not so common. Div
ing and remaining under water some
times as long as five minutes, the
native will cautiously hunt about
until he discovers a shark asleep in
a position suitable for his purposes
that is, with his head in sonic hole
or cave and his tail exposed then
returning to the surface for his rope,
he will run a noose around the tail
of the shark. The other end of tho
rope is ashore, in charge of a party
of his assistants, and, witli a long
and strong pull, the shark thus
noosed is rapidly pulled ashore and
dispatched with clubs or other in
struments, and boiled down for the
oil he yields, which is worth as much
for machinery purposes as sperm oil,
and is, indeed, preferred to it by
some. A large shark (and some of
thcin grow to an enormous size in
these seas) will yield more than a
barrel of oil.
Some of the natives here, and on
the neighboring island of Niihau,
will not hesitate to light with a shark.
One native, who has acquired renown.
for his daring and success in such
combats, lives at Kekaha. His name
is Lilo ; ho is a man of between fifty
and sixty years of age. Tourists
who wisli to satisfy themselves about
the truth of the shark-fighting stories
they may have heard can always
command the services of this man.
Lilo has been known to take down
as many as ten ropes with him and
noose with them an equal number of
sharks which he had discovered in a
single cave. This sort of sport could,
of course, not be indulged in but for
the fact that the sharks arc sound
sleepers, probably being in a half
torpid state through being gorged
with food. It is chiefly at the hours
of sunrise and sunset that the' are
thus found asleep."
As a fish story this ought to take
the cake. We do not think Mr. Ba
got can give us anything to beat it
in the new directory. Mr. Bowser
must certainly have run against the
original Ananias. Mr. Bowser, we
think, must have been a "sound
sleeper," as well as the shark, to
have enabled somebody to catch him
