A. T. LONGLEY,
Poultry Manure Has
High Value On Farm
By-ProductOflrnportance Often Over
looked By Poultry Raisers Some
The manure produced is a .valuable
by-product of poultry raising. It is
estimated that the average night
droppings of a hen amount to 30 to
40 pounds per year. This represents
the manure which can certainly be
saved with the exercise of a little
care. A conservative estimate indic
ates that this manure contains fertil
izing constituents which would cost
20 to 25 cents if bought in the form of
commercial fertilizers at ordinary
prices. A flock of 100 hens would at
this rate produce manure worth $20
to $25 per year. If, however, the man
ure is not properly cared for, as much
as one-half of Its fertilizing value is
likely to be lost. To prevent loss,
free,uent cleaning of the dropping
boards is necessary, and some sort of
absorbent should be used daily.
Sifted coal ashes may be used as an
"absorbent, but wood ashes or lime
should not be mixed with the manure,
as they are likely to cause the loss
of its most valuable fertilizing con
stituent, namely, nitrogen (ammonia).
Poultry manure is more valuable
than the manure of any other common
farm animal. It is particularly well
adapted to gardening, and poultry
raisers should either use it on their
own. gardens or dispose of it at a
good price, thus increasing the
profits of tho'r flocks. News Letter.
Fine Celebration By
Union Sunday School
Wailuku Town Hall was the scene
of a very merry time on Friday night
last week, when the Wailuku. Union
Sunday, School held its interesting
Christmas exercise. The tree, which
was a very large one, was placed on
the stage. It was beautifully decorat
ed The presents for the children
were piled on a table at one side.
Chas. K. Rose took the part of Santa
Clans and distributed the presents.
Before the tree was displayed the
ch'ldren of the school sang several
son?s. Mr. Helen Mar Linton read
a pretty Christmas story. Rev. R. B.
Dodge, the minister of the church, of
fered prayer. Just before the appear
ance of Santa Clans, the children join
ed heartily in games.
Before the evening closed ice cream
and cake were served to all. Iri spite
of the bad weather practically all the
ch'ldren were present.
The arrangement of the tree and
decorations of the hall were in the
hands of special committee of the
Women's Aid Society and the Sunday
School. Those who assisted were Miss
Gertrude B. Judd, the superintendent
of the school. L. R. Mathews and Miss
June Mitchell among the teachers,
and from the Women's Aid Society
by Mrs. W. II. Engle and Miss Eliza
beth A. Cramer.
Concent rated cider, which keeps
better and is much less bulky than
the ordinary product, can be made by
freezing and centrifugalizing, which
eliminate water and leave behind
sugar and flavor.
New And Simple Way
To Clean Silverware
Department Of Agriculture Experts
Tell How Tarnish May Be Removed
In Any Kitchen
The Department of Agriculture's
Weekly News Letter gives the fol
lowing valuable account of a method
for cleairng silverware that should be
of interest to every housewife:
An easy and effective method of
('leaning tarnished silverware by boil
ing in a soda and salt solution in
coni act with a clean piece of alumin
um or zinc U recommended to house
wives by the department as a result
uf studies made by its specialties in
home economics. The necessary
procedure is so simple that it may bo
followed successfully in practically
The cleaning system known as the
electrolytic method has-been well
recognized for several years.
What the Electrolytic Method Is.
The tarnish which occurs on Bilver
is not due to oxidation, but Is depend
eiil entirely upon the action of sul
phur. In most eases the source of the
sulphur causing tanv'sh is rubber,
wool, foods like eggs, and the sulphur
in the air due to burning illuminating
gas and coal. The electrolytic clean
ing method depends on the facts that
this tarnish of silver suphid is slight
ly soluble in the hot solution employ
ed, nnd that it Is broken down chem
ically and its silver content redeposit
ed on the ware when the proper
electrical condlt'ons prevail. The
presence of both the silver and the
aluminium or zinc in the hot solution
provides the necessary electrical con
ditions. ' Under this method, there
fore, practically all the silver in the
tarnish is returned to the object be
ing cleaned. When silver polishes
are used, on the other hand, all the
silver in combination in the tarnish
Methods Recommended. i
In the cleaning method recommend
er by the department the necessary
materials are a graniteware cooking
uteniil deep enough to allow the silv
edware to be covered by the solution;
a clean piece of aluminum or zinc,
preferably the former; and baking or
washing soda. The solution, consist
ing of a teaspooful of baking or
washing soda and a like amount, of
table salt to each quart of water, is
brought to a boll in a graniteware or
enameled utensil. A sheet of alumin
um or clean zinc is dropped in. The
tarnished silverware is then immers
ed in the solution so that it is in
contact with the sheet of aluminum or
zinc. The tarnish should disappear in
a few seconds. The silver object
should then be removed from the
solution, rinsed, and dried with a soft
Aluminum is much more satisfact
ory than zinc for use in this cleaning
process, since it does not become
coated with a layer of carbonates
which would interfere with the chem
ical reaction. Zinc does "form car
bonates and, if used, must be cleaned
frequently in dilute hydrochloric acid.
A small sheet cf aluminum may be
purchased, especially for silver clean
ing purposes, or a piece of an old
aluminum utensil well cleaned may
be used. Utensils which would later
be used in cook'ng operations should
never be employed in cleaning silver
ware by the eletrolytic method. If
very large pieces of silver are to be
cleaned and a container is required
larger than can be placed convenient
ly on the stove, the hot solution may
be poured into such a vessel and the
silver object immersed. The method
is most effective, however, when the
solution boils during the cleaning
.recess, and efficiency is rapidly low
ered as the temperature of the solu
tion fr.lls below the boiling point.
The electrolytic method gives the
cleaned silver a satiny finish after
several cleanings. If a burnished sur
face is desired, the silver must from
time to time be polished lightly with
some abrasive pol'ahing material such
as powdered whiting. The study made
by the department specialists includ
ed a comparison of the amount of
silver lost when the whole tarnish
was removed by polishing and vhen
the electrolytic method, was used. It
was found that when whiting paste
was used as an abrasive, spoons lost
nearly 0.01 of a gram of silver each,
approximately twenty-five timeB aB
much as when the "homemade" elec
trolytic method was employed.
Fruit Fly Quarantine Now
Dars Cooking Bananas
It is reported that the federal ent.
omologist in Honolulu has made the
discovery that the Mediterranean
fruit fly occasionally breeds in a var
iety of cooking bananas, and hence
cooking bananas are now barred from
the coast by the quarantine which
applies to most vegetable products of
Barglar Robs Liquor
House Of Coin And Booze
A burglar or burglars broke into the
wholesale licjuor house of the Kau
pakalua Wine and Liquor Company,
at l'auwela, one night last week and
got away with about $1.50 in change
and several gallons of assorted liqu
ors. Entrance to the place was ef
fected by cutting a hole in a window,
apparently by means of a diamond,
through which it was possible to In
sert an arm and unbolt the door. The
police are working on the matter, but
have as yet made no arrests.

Friday afternoon, and were unusually
delightful to the 200 Children of the
school. The program was filled with

ful tree from which Santa Claus
distributed gifts to all. The success
of the affair was largely due to the
efforts of the members of the Ladies'
Aid Society of the church.
