are planning to cut their way
out of the rebel lines which surround
them, thinking only of saving their

Byron tx Clark one oi the origlnll
Wahiawa homesteaders, who has bees
identified with the pineapple industry
here for ten years, plana to leave for
California early .1n , February, - Mr.
Clark has purchased eighty, seres of
fruit land , near Paradise, In Butte
county and will plant English walnuts,
ten seres, of his -new ranch being al
ready planted in that crop.

center of a very fine fruit belt. Par

surrounding districts also. grow, a very
fine quality of apples sad olives. The
Paradise fruit lauds are about 1000
feet' higher than' the -SacrsmestVsl-.
ley. . Besides extending his! Orchards
be expects to enter the nursery busi
ness, which was his occupation in Csl
ifornis before coming to Hawaii.
Mr. Clark states that while he is
only fifty-nine years old he feels that
he is not too young to again become
a pioueer and he expects to repeat lit
ths next fifteen yesft the pkasoiiMiul
success which has attended his fifteen
years of residence in this Territory. ;
Mr. Clark was one of the first pine
apple planters to apply modern meth
ods of', cultivation io ' that crop, and
bad It not been for his experiments,
it is claimed ths pineapiJs industry of
Hawaii would not have attained its
