The best thing to seiul to
your friends abroad is King
Bros.' Illustrated 8ouvonir
of Hawaii, which is gotten
up lor the purpose and is
not uu ttdvortiseuneut.
KutTon Htn.i.uTis :
In reply to Mr. L. Al. Vctlcscn's
letter or the Mlh inst., 1 ttould stale
that the general decline of the cocoa
nut in the Hawaiian islands Is owing
to old age. We cannot expect tliein
to last forover. Tho sugar-cane hav
ing absorbed so much interest here,
thu encoanuts hnvo been nlm09t for
gotten. In countries where cocoa
nut culture is made a business of, as
soon as the palms show signs of de
cline, young ones are planted midway
between the old ones, and receive
their protection until the old ones are
in the way, when they aredesttoyed
Mr. Vetlesen's rematks about fail
ures are in the main concct, but if
investigated he wilt probably find the
causes come under one of these
heads old age, neglect or inexperi
ence. Although old age can hardly
be called a failure, the old palms may
have paid the older generations well,
which the younger generations have
let go to the "dogs."
1 would suggest that places fre
quented with strong winds or heavy
gales aie not the most desirable for
the cultivation of the cocoanut, and
here arises one cause of failure in
the first place the palms have been
planted too close together ; they grow
up and their branches overlap ; the
first gale that comes they lash one
another until nothing but the stalks
remain, and then they are useless.
But this is practically overcome.
Plant them inrther apart, and if no
extraordinaiy gale comes bcfoie they
come to matin lly, ten to one they
will weather it out afterwards. I am
not acquainted with Kekaha, Kauai,
but my foregoing lcmarks will apply
to Maui, between Kahului and Maa
laea bay, where the wind at times is
Who that has travelled much iu
this direction has not seen the vessels
at Maalaea Bay having to weigh
anchor, and go after their boats
blown out to sea? There are several
causes to which failure can be attri
butable the piiucipal being pio
ti acted dioulh. The Micronesian
Islands have lately been suffering
from this cause, so their yield of
cobra has been small accordingly.
The cocoanut is not exempt from
its share of enemies, vi. , ants, rats,
wood-lice, hermit-crabs, land-crabs,
mall boys, etc. The remedies for
these are ashes and sail for the ants
and nobd-lice; nail a sheet of ziue
(say two feet long) around the tree
for the rats and laud-crabs, and to
spoil the little game of the hermit
crab (who lias a strong weakness for
the young plant), take an old kero
sene tin, cut off the two ends, and
place it over the young tree ; small
boys, according to circumstance.
I presume that Mr. Vetlesen and
others interested in this matter, have
carefully preserved your previous
articles on "Diversified Industiies,"
iu which the manners and custoins of
handling the cocoanut, iu different
parts of the world, are fully explain
ed, but for the benefit of those who
have not, I would submit the follow
ing GUNEKAI. DIKhCllONS.
The seed-nuts should be gathered
from healthy, vigorous trees, plucked
at maturity, and not allowed to fall
to the giound, as the utif is liable to
ciack, and if the milk escapes it will
not sprout. Care must also be taken
in handling them during transporta
tion. Spread them in the sun to
sprout, on a layer of ashes, and a
little salt (look out for the afore
mentioned enemies). As soon as
they sprout and the roots come
through the husk, they will leqture
moisture from another source the
nut itself supplying it until this
Do not plant them any less than
twenty feet apart. Dig a hole five
or six feet deep and wide in piopor
tion to be icgulated according to
circumstances depth of soil, fre
quency of strong winds, etc. I
would advise at least .six tect, if pos
sible, if lor no other reason, you
have not bo far to go for the nuts
when the tree has matured. You
will find by the time the tree has
reached maturit', where you dug the
hole will be level ground. In plant
ing the nut, take notice in which
direction the young sprout has a ten
dency to lean, place it with tho
sprout leaning toward the prevailing
wind, half bury the nut iu the soil,
then place ashes and salt to reach
the top of the nut, but not to cover
it. See that it has sullicii'ut moist
ure, and after a while anything in
the shape of a fertilizer will be bene
ficial. With regard to procuring the nuts.
If I have sufficient encouragement,
iu tho shape of guaranteed orders, I
will procure them myself from the
Southern Islands and laud them on
the wharf at Honolulu for 10c.
apiece. If my foiegoing instructions
uie adhered to, I have not the slight
est doubt that cocoanut cultivation
can be made as remunerative in the
Hawaiian Islands as elsewhere.
They are usually quoted at $1 a
tree per annum, but with new uses
coming in vogue tt will double iu the
near future, and be an endless source
of income to the happy possessor of
a giovc of cocoanut palms.
