RICE GROWN FROM SEED 1000 YEARS OLD SERVED MIKADO AT ARMY REVIEW By Auoclat4 Pnsil TOKIO, Nov. Rice 'grown di rectly from seed grains one thousand years old will be served the Emperor of Japan when he attends the autumn maneuvers of the Japanese army In Shiga prefecture, this -fallr?- The -an dent rice grains were found Inside a wooden Image of Valsravana In a lit tle Buddhist temple In the village of Iwame. t - ' Valsravana is the god of wealth, and his Image had become so old as to need repairing. In the coarse of doing this there was found Inside the mage a flaxen bag containing the seed and a paper with the following in struction in ancient Chinese char acters: - This image has been carved for the peace of the world. If any one of a later generation open it he, should put in new seed." From the artistic style of the carving and the traditions re lating to the Image, it was estimated that, the seeds were 1000 years old. They were planted and yielded a good crop. ftEMEMBER THE NUR3E. KILAUEA CITTOFF ROAO PROPOSED OHOANS STEAL C0AL001D0R ( Spc:l 8tr Bulletin CorTcendnc.) HluO. De lf. In reference to the propose cutoff road which has been outlined by County Engineer A. C. Wheeler and which is to shorten the way to the pit of Kilauea and inci dentally to reduce the maintenance charpes of some three thousand feet of roadbed. Supervisor K. IT. Lrman went on reord yesterday morning at the meeting of the solons to the ef fect that he did not approve of tbi cutoff. "I feel that to make the cv.toff would reduce the scenic effects for the tourists who ride down the road in automobiles." said Mr. Lyman. "The road was constructed to give the tourists a glimpse of the wonder ful semi-tropical forest through which it winds. That Fcene is an asset and it should not be shortened, in my opinion." Supervisor A. M. Cabrinha declared it would be better to make the cutoff. Tourists could follow the foot trail if they wanted to see more of Kilauea iki. He also said that the fact that, in time, the road would be made a per manent affair, seemed to be overlook ed. When that time came, if the route were shorter by three thousand feet or, so, there would be less road to construct. The matter was left in abeyance as there is a lot of data to be gathered. OTHER DISTRICTS The fuel administration has issued the following: Wholesale coal robbery in Ohio has ; !en unearthed by the I'nited States j ; fuel administration. In some places. ; railroad tracks have been torn up, ' ! through freight stopped, and loaded' '. coal cars confiscated. In other places , cars of coal have been taken from sid-, j ings.

An example of this was given by Homer i II. Johnson, fuel administrator for Ohio. Example of Confiscation Four cars of coal were ordered to one town which needed fuel badly.

It is an exciting game which the fuel administration is playing against time, ae the coal which is not gotten into nis territory oy the iaK can not be sent in any other way, because the shortage of coal cars is so great that none can possibly be spared for the long haul to the Northwest. The fears of the offending Ohio towns, that they would be left entirely without coal, were groundless, as th? fuel administration has ordered that the immediate needs of Ohio and! Michigan be supplied. i The progress that is beitfg made by the newspapers and publishing con cerns of Santo Domingo is shown by the fact that during the pa3t few months six linotype machines of American manufacture were purchased.
