THE SWEET POTATO.
The sweet potato belongs to the
convolvulus family ami has been as
signed to different genera by various
botanical writers, but the most recent
ncccpled botanical authority calls it
IpoiiKva Ilatatns, of Lamreck. Its
native country is uncertain, whctliur
East Indian ur American. While Hits,
sweet potato vi grow in northern
latitudes and will produce tubers in
the summer season, it can only reach
perfection and be giown profitably
in warm climates. The sweet potato
will grow, thrive, and mature, des
pite of the drii"-l am1 Ii iliust weather,
and there U scarce! iti.y other escu
lent that will do this under a burn
ing sun and torrid atino-iplicie.
Until within three or four years
past the value of the sweet potato as
a crop has not been fully realized or
appreciated, and the requisites for
its proper production and cultivation
less undeistood than any other crop
of like importance. But it is rapidly
being demonstrated that it is the
most valuable of all the root crops
and its culture is receiving largely
The Charleston News recently re
ferred to the sweet potato as follows:
"We have always been of opinion
Hint the great value of the sweet po
tato crop in the Southern States and
eUewliere was not duly appreciated
and biitliciently utilized. Root craps
are always more prolilic than grain
crops. They exhaust the land le.-,s
and give more in leturn for labor and
manure. Of com so they arc not as
nutritious, pound for pound, as
grain, but in great increase of ma
terial they yield more nutrition to a
given quantity of land, than any of
the cereals. Irish potatoes, turnips,
beets, carrots, both in Europe and in
our Northern States, are all justly
prized as the most valuable of farm
crops. Tho sweet potato is superior
to them all as food for man and beast.
It may be used for all the purposes
to which the others are applied, and
lor many others besides. n the
fresh state, just out of the ground,
it makes an excellent substitute for
arrow-root by grating the p-ulp into
water and allowing the starchy mat
ter to subside. As a vegetable it is
a favorite on every table, cooked in a
great variety of ways. As a dessert,
it makes better pudding or pie than
the pumpkin. It is good food for
stock of all kinds horses, cattle,
sheep and hogs. Our best Southern
varieties will probably soon become
a very important aiticlo of export to
the Noilhern States and to Eutope.
A well-seasoned potato, baked slow
ly, as it should be, is really more a
fruit than a vegetable. The lime
will come when tin v will be prepar
ed in this way, and, by being put up
in sealed cans and by other modes of
conveyance, will become an import
ant article of trade. They aie put
ting up cans already in some parts
of the country."
Vahietics: There are many va
rieties of the sweet potato possess
ing widely different qualities accord
ing to soil and climate Which
particular variety will lie best suited
to a given locality, can only be ascer
tained by experimental culture. The
"Hanover," "Yellow Nansomond"
and "Southern Queen" sire considered
among the beat grown in the South
ern States. There are other varieties
known as the "yam family of sweet
potatoes." Of these the leading
varieties are "Yellow Pimento,"
"White Brazilian," "Red Bermuda,"
"White Bermuda," "Red Spanish,"
"Mexican" or "Bahama Yam." Va
rieties that have been imported from
Peru are "Porto Viejo," large, sweet
and abundant ; skin, dark red ; flesh,
deep pink. "Boca Sagarto," sweet
er and better llavor; skin, light pink;
llesh, yellowish white. "Nina," still
better; skin and llesh, yellowish
There aie about Unity marked and
permanent varieties in New Zealand.
Some are red-skinned, sumo purple,
and others white. Tuber have been
widily distiibiited fiom there over
Europe and the West Indies.
Soils and mani-isks: A sandy and
loamy soil and a win in climate are
the conditions most favorable to the
sweet potato. It will grow in other
soils if not too cold or heavy and
will produce fairly good crops, but it.
is as well established fact that a
sandy loamy is tho best, and produces
the finest of sweet potatoes.
Well rotted stable manure, pul
verized and spread broad-cast, is the
best and cheapest fertilizer. Wood
ashes is considered by some to be the
best and most enduring fertilizer.
The farmers of the Southern Slates
also use the superphostatic lime,
bono meal, aininoiiiated bone, wood
ashes, and potubh, .which give satis
Piioi-.uia'iion: The sweet potato
is propagated by planting layers or
slips from the mature vines," or by
spioutsor "draws" fiom the teed.
The former method is that usually
practiced in these islands, but it is
not the approved method in other
sweet potato growing countries, nor
is it as sutisfacloiy or piobfio in its
results. The writer has experiment
ed with both methods ncui Honolulu
and has found that tho seed snmnls
produced linger, more liibcioiis, and j
mot c abundant tubers, '
To prepaie a seed bed, t-elect a
good wann spot and dig out a pit '
about twelve inches deep iu,d in j
length and width according to the
quantity wished to bo bedded. Then
fill the pit neaily to the top with dry
stable manure ; then throw on earth
to tho depth of four inches; smootho
this and place on the potatoes evenly
but 'do not let theui touch, Then
cover with earth or sand about four
inches deep. The boed potato must
be hound and of good size. In about
fives weeks from the putting down of
the bed, the shoots will bo about
three or four inches high, and may
be drawn carefully, one at a time,
with tho right hand, the left hand
holding the ground firmly, to prevent
the potato from being distuibed or
drawn tip. There will bo a second
and third growth of sprouts for a
couple of months following.
Cultivation: Both the hill and
the ridge system have their advo
cates, but the preponderance of testi
mony seems to be in favor of the
ridge. Deep cultivation is not neces
snry and the ridges should not be
thrown up loo high and should be
about three feel apail. Plinled 18
inches apart, thuro would be UtiOO
plants to tliu acre. The si Is from
llin seed bed should be dipped in a
thick pasto of manure and earth
mixed with water when planted, set
deeply so as not to cover the bud,
watered, and the soil pressed firmly
around each one. They should be
watered again the next evening.
Further cultivation should be with a
hoc or rake to keep the weed- down.
When the vines are full grown and
begin to meet, they should bo broke
loose from the ground and drawn to
gether to prevent rooting down.
In the Southern States tubers are
bedded about the fust of April,
planted from the middle of May to
the llrstof June, and harvested about
the middle of October. The yield
varies from 7o to 900 bushels accord
ing to -soil, locality, and cultivation.
The average may be placed at 150
bushels. According to United Slates
laws a bushel of sweet potatoes is
The growing crop does not need
much irrigation, for it has been
observed "that land ou which corn
is apt to burn badly i3 best for sweet
potatoes, and that hot dry summers,
in which other crops fail, serve to
develop this esculent in size, and in
all its sweetness and line flavor."

COMPLAINT OF A C0XSWAIM.
Regarding the regatta of yester
day, the 17th, I have a few words to
say in the name of cur crew and for
myself. Ve don't want to say that
it was not a fair race, and we don't
want to kick about the few dollars
we lost, because that did not amount
to much. There is one thing I want
to bring to the attention of the sport
ing people of Honolulu, and that is
the act or trick of Mr. L. A. Thurs
ton of the yacht Hawaii during our
race with the kanaka boys. For over
a mile that gentleman gave us the
wash and dead water of his yacht,
and that just at the lime when we
were gaining rapidly on the Kapio
lani. I don't know that gentleman
if gentleman he may be called but
that act put him far beyond that line
in my oyos although I am only a
common bluejacket. If that gentle
man had bet any amount of money
n the Kapiolani, I wish him luck to
his gain. IIunuy A. Fkasp.u,

There is no danger fiom whooping
cough when Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is freely given. It liquefies
the tough, tenacious mucus and aids
in its expectoration. It also lessens
the severity and frequency of the
paroxysms of coughing, ami insures
a speedy recovery. There is not the
least danger in giving it to children
or babies, as it contains no injmious
