this soction. of Hawaii is "now being
harvested. , La,rge, juicy, well flavored

Mr, White discovered that tbe melon
flies had a particular fondness for. the
Chinese eueumrer. This vegetable grows
during tha same season as th melons,
but forms and matures just a few weeks
ahead of the melons. By planting the
encumber vines among tha melons, the
melon flies abandon their attack on the
melons, devote all their time to the cu
cumbers, with tbe remit that Koua has
a big melon crp and a crowd cf happy
farmers this year. .' . ;
