RAMIE ALL RIGHT.
It in many yours siuco tho grow
ing of the ramio plant wns agitnt-
ed as a profitable) new industry in
tlioso islands. Somo considerable
plantings of it were indeed mado
-tliore is no question of its flour
ishing horo with the minimum of
cultivation but nothing has ever
como of tho industry. Tlio ouo
proveutivo of sucfioss was tho lack
ofeffectivo apparatus for producing
inarlcotablo fibre from the shrub.
Several decorticating machines
w.no invented in Honolulu,
somo elaborate and others
shiple in construction, and
samples of beautiful fibro
-wero shown in tho storo windows.
That was all there was of it.
Inventive skill tho world over had
boon stimulated as far bnck as
1809, for tho production of a ma
ohino for making ramie fibre, with
a reward of $25,000 offered by tho
East Indian Government. Itamie
or rlioa fabrics Intel been mado for
agps. As n recent articlo in tho
London Times, which forms the
basis of this writing, says: "Bhea
cloth is unrolled from tho mum
uiios of the Nile and unearthed in
the burial mounds of Assam. The
nets and linos spuu from it had,
for strength, fineness and dura
bility, no rivals among tho fisher
men of Bengal and the Malay
Archipelago. As 'Ohina grass'
it won its way about thobeginuing
of this century into Europoau
In tho dim past, when labor was of
littlo account, tho women of farm
cm' and fishermen's families scrap
ed and washed small Quantities of ,
tin- bark till, by tho persistent
toil of many days, each family
produced a fow handfuls of tho (
mach-prized fibro. But tho cost
oi hub iniinuni procobb iirinim nu
insuperable difficulty in tho adop
tion of rhea for modern textile
manufactures. It is this problem
that tho chemists and machinists
of Europe and America we
might add littlo Hawaii have
duriug tho past thirty years boon
endeavoring to solve. Factories
wero started in Germany and
Frunce for tho extraction of tho
fibre. "They worked it up into
many forms, from ropes and sail
canvas to plus'icsaud dross pieces
resembling silk goods iu appear
ance. They failed, however, to
produce u iilasso, or clear fibre,
which should bo at once cheap
and serviceable. No machine or
merely mechanical operation eli
minated the rosinB with a perfec
tion which yielded fino yarns,
excopt at a cost prohibitive of
tin lr general use." Tho Times'
account goes on to say that tho
f chemists soemed for a time to be j other islands:
more successful, and in thoir con- BJ' tbo arrival of the S. S. Aus
fidonco laid out largo capital. But ! tl'nlm wo nro pleased to give you
by the time tho fabrics carao into ! the following news dated to Aug.
tho bauds of tho consumers, in- ! 28 flS follows:
deed often before they passed
from tho shops of tho retail
dealers, it was found that tho
chemicals had injured tho fibro,
nnd tho goods wero often return
ed to the makers.
At last it appears tho problem
has boon solved, tho honor of dis
covering an available process hav
ing fallon to an English chemist
named Gomess born iu India.
Tho "Iudian Government pro
nounces it a complete success, an
official memorandum of its In
spector Gonoral of Forests having
this declaration: "Tho difficulties
which previously existed in re
gard to the extraction of the
valuable, textilo fibro from tlio
bark of tho rhea plants have been
ontiroly ovorcomo by" what is
Known ns tlio uoniess process,
nnd a largo demand has sprung
up for ribbouo of dried bark with
every probability of its increasing
to onormous proportions." Tho
lthea Fibre Treatment Company
in London is having dopondent
associations established through
out India, Europo and America,
and tho Indian memorandum,
previously roforrod to, indicates
how tho production of the fibzo
may bo increased in practically
unlimited quantities to moot the
demand. Tho Inspector General
submits a schomo for aiding tho
cultivators by official information
as to tho areas most suitable for
tho growth of tho plant and tho
varieties best adapted to each
locality, and by government
experiments as to the best
i modes of stripping, drying and
i baling tho bark. This is a
' subject, it Booms to us, that should
I bo taken up vigorously by the
; Hawaiian Bureau of Agriculture,
, Thoro is ovidently no fibre equal
, to ramio, and tho cultivation of
tho plant is more simple than that
of any other for the same purpose.
From tho forogoing it is ovident
that there will be no immediate
nocessity for having tho final pro
cesses established horo, as the
, dried strips of bark will bo light
enough to make their ex
portation as raw material
capitalists may see their way
clear to establish tho cloaniug
process horo, and in conjunction
therewith factories for spinning
and weaving tho fibre, to produeo
fabrics from sailcloth to silky
textures and spun goods from
ship's hawsers to tho finest
crocheting thread. Iu tho mean
time, it would appear to bo a safo
thing to plant ramie for tho raw
material on land not otherwiso

A short time ago we intro
duced the De Laval Cream
Separators to the notice of the
public through this column
but we were compelled to
change our advertisement in a
few days as the demand created
by it soon exhausted the sup
ply of Separators we had on
We have just received a
fresh supply and again call
attention to their merits.
Have you one or more cows?
If so, what is your purpose in
keeping them? Is it your object
to ofct the most money from
them, with at same time some
comfort and satisfaction? Are
you doinjr it?
Have you kept pace with
the improvements in dairy ap,
paratus? Have you everstorv
ped to consider the benefits of
the Cream Separator, not to
the world, not to your neigh
bor, but to you personally and
If not, you cannot do any
thing better, and the sooner
the better. Everybody now
understands the principle of
centrifugal creaming. Gravity
causes tne cream to rise in the
old way. The separator sim
ply adds centrifugal force to
gravity. It merely uses two
natural forces instead of one
only. It effects the complete
separation of cream from milk,
w iich is not possible in any
ot ler way, and in the most all
around practical mannei.
The De Laval Cream Separ
ators are in almost universal
use the world over. They have
revolutionized dairying me
thods. The State Colleges
and Experiment Stations all
use and advocate them. More
than 8,000 have been sold.
All practical creameries have
long used them. Progressive
dairy farmers do so in all sec
tions. There must be many
users around you. No user of
a De Laval machine ever did
otherwise than endorse it.
The De Laval "Baby" or
Dairy Cream Separators are
now made in six different
styles and sizes. They range
in capacity from 1 $0 lbs. per
hour to 700 lbs. per hour.
Capacity means separating
capacity per hour. They are
made for all requirements from
the household buying its milk,
to the dairy of from one cow
to one hundred.
The De Laval machines are
Hand machines. They are de
signed and constructed for
hand use. Women and chil
dren run them. They are used
almost wholly in such way.
Still they may be attached to
any sort of light power, from
dog tread to engine.
we have also a smaller type
of the same machine, which is
designated as the "Humming
Bird," especially intended for
household use. It is very
small, very compact, extremely
simple, easily understood and
cared for, safe and durable. It
possesses every advantage to
be found in any of the larger
