For Fair Purposes

with roofing, entailing enormous ex
pense. Aala Park grounds are covered by
an excellent turf, which with frequent
sprinkling easily will withstand the
daily trampling of the crowds and the
livestock. It also has a high board
fence already in place on one side,
with Nuuanu stream forming a natur
al barrier on another. It will be nec
essary, the building committee
thinks, to erect merely individual or
community booths for the exhibits,
leaving open streets across the
greensward over which the crowds
Hawaii's exhibits of livestock, field
crops, fruits and vegetables at the
territorial fair, June 10 to 15, may be
inspected and judged by experts of
national repute, detailed to Honolulu
for the specific purpose by the U. S.
Bureau of Animal Industry and U. S.
Bureau of Agriculture.
Acting on a suggestion from Harold
W. Rice, the fair commissioner rep
resenting the island of Maui, chair
man George H. Angus, has written
the Department at Washington re
questing their cooperation and the
appointment of men for this work.
It is believed the Department will
be glad to assign experts, and that
the showing which island growers
make at the fair will open the eyes
of the mainland visitors and help to
give Hawaii a splendid advertisement
in the states.
Harold Rice Is Making
Success Of Fair Drive
(Continued from Page One.)
Rice has taken up the subject of the
"fair with Mr. Krauss and other grow
ers of farm produce and has been
promised hearty co-operation, Poul
- try raisers will also come in strong.
Many varieties of improved corn and
beans, scientifically developed on
Maui, will be displayed at the fair
for the benefit of growers of other
parts of the Territory.
The following announcement con
cerning the food exhibit at the fair
has been given out:
Every farmer who takes special
pride in a field crop of any kind
grown on his land, every woman, boy
or girl who is interested in fruit or
vegetable gardening, will have an op
portunity to compete for prizes at the
territorial fair, June 10 to 15. Prizes
will be given for best specimens of
almost every kind of foodstuff that
can be grown in Hawaii, from radishes
and green onions and bananas up to
Compilation of the classified list of
competitions has been practically
completed by the agricultural com
mittee Of the fair, of which H. P.
Agee is chairman, and should appear
printed in pamphlet form within a
week or ten days.
An Idea of the size the agricultural
section of the fair is expected to at
tain and the wide variety it will have,
may be surmised from the fact that
the committee's classifications in
present type-written form cover near
ly thirty pages.
Among the many exhibits in which
growers may enter their products
will be sugar cane, pineapples, beans,
Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes, field
corn, rice, wheat, oats, barley, rye
sorghum, millets, legumes, leguminous
forage, grasses, carrots, turnips, arti
chokes, cassava and other tubers,
taro, alligator pears, bananas, lemons,
limes, shaddock, grape-fruit, oranges,
grapes, mangoes, bread-fruit, sour
sops, figs, dates, melons, papaias,
peaches, strawberries, nuts, cocoa
nuts, radishes, beets, cabbage, cucum
bers, eggplant, onions, peppers, spin
ach, parsley, asparagus, cauliflower,
mushrooms, peas, pumpkins, squash,
rhubarb, horse radish, and the speci
al Hawaiian and Oriental vegetables.
All of these are open to school chil
dren, and special preparation is made
for school exhibits and inter-school
competitions and appropriate prizes.
of a better understanding on the part
of the plantation laborers of the real
meaning of American democracy.
These classes are teaching the men
who attend the principles of our gov
ernment. There is also an opportuni
ty which Is never lost by Mr. Judd of
inculcating the spirit of loyalty to the
plantation and an appreciation of the
dignity of labor.
Through the generosity of friends
of the Wailului Japanere Girls' Home,
Miss Kdiih N. Parsons, a graduate
of Simmons and a senior in the Hart
ford School of Religious Pedagogy,
who is also a teacher of several years
expei ience, has been secured as the
American worker in the Home.
The venture of holding regular
classes by Miss Gertrude P.. Judd in
theological and Biblical instruction
has proved successful. These classes
are held at Union Church from 9 un
til 12 four mornings a week. This Is
the kind ot work that does not make
a brilliant showing, but it is the same
kind of foundation that "Father"
Alexander began laying years ago.
Miss Judd's classes are attended by
three Hawaiian, four Japanese, One
Filipino and one Chinese and two
Koreans.. These latter are of the
Methodist work in Sprecklesville. All
are now much better equipped for
their work in the churches. A great
er efficiency has been noted on the
part of several and an enthusiasm
on the part of others, who previously
were easily discouraged.
The committee work of the year
has been most satisfactory. While
there has not been as much work
donp in the repairs and new build
Incs. as usual, yet, the Kaluaaha
Church was finished and the Waialua
Church of Molokal is now being erect
ed. These two jobs had been begun
nnd had to be finished. It Is ex
peeted that no other work of this
sort will be undertaken until after
It is sincerely hoped that all regit
lar donations may be continued dur
ini? the vear 1918. so that persons
new eneaired in the work may have
their reirular salaries. All unneces
onrv evnenses are to be cut to the
lowest nossible point.
The loss of Rev. and Mrs. Willis
B. Coale from Lahaina was' a great
blow to the Maui work. By vote of
the Trustees of the Maui Aid Associ
ation and joint action of the Hawai
ian Board a good start has been made
in securing Mr. Coale s successor
The sad mental condition of Rev. D
W. K. White makes it all the more
imperative that there be no longer
delav than necessary in securing a
unnrl man for the Lahaina side of
Maui and of Molokai. The demand
for frequent visits to Molokai has
been more incessant than ever bfore.
This comes from the business inter
ests of Molokai as well as the church
The hearty cooperation of so many
people in the work of the Maui Aid
Association during 1917 has been
trre'atlv annreciated by the officers
The new Board of trustees for the
vear 1918 is constituted as follows:
Mrs. Emilv A. Baldwin, Frank K
Baldwin, H. A. Baldwin, Dr. W. D.
Baldwin, S. A. Baldwin, A. Craig Bow-
dish, Rowland B. Dodge, L. 11. Kau
meheiwa, David Lindsay, H. B. Pen
hallow. Harold V. Rice.
At the meeting of the Trustees hem
directly after the annual meeting
Frank F. Baldwin was elected presi
dent for the year; H. A. Baldwin, vice
resident. Rowland B. Dodge secre
tary-treasurer and D. C. Lindsay, au
ditor. The books will be kept by the
Baldwin National Bank as was the
case last year.
A laree number of new members
were elected to the Association.
An important bit of financial work
was the vote to list the entire proper
ty of the Association, both the ianu
values and the trust accounts passed
to the Association. These values
have all been greatly' Increased dur
ing the last two or three years. Hence
a valuation of the property and a
careful inventory seemed necessary.

EFFECTS AT HAIKU
Mr. Krauss submits the following
respecting the storm:
During tne week ending 5 p. m.,
February 20, a total of 9.56 inches of
rain fell at Haiku. While this is, in
itself, quite an excess of rainfall for
most field crops, past observations
would indicate that on naturally
well drained soils, or those properly
drained by artiflcal means, and ra
tional cultural methods, that corn,
beans and potatoes may pull through
without serious injury. When, how
ever, high winds accompany heavy
precipation, we have a combination,
whose destructivenf s is well illus
trated by the battered and sodden
corn fields ramifying our country
side for several square miles. Fine
stands of corn, from a foot to six feet
in height, turgid with the excessive
rains, Knapped their little stalks like
pipe stems, or were keeled over like
dumbells. Several hundred acres
probably now lie prostrate from rain,
and wind in the more exposed locali
Potatoes under a high state of cul
tivation but which lacked the precau
tionaryf'measuro of adequate storm
drains were washed away bodily. At
the sub-station a large part of an ex
perimental acre in potato varieties
under fertilizer test were washed fifty
teet away from place of planting.
Others better protected from wind and
wash are still holding their own. Lima
beans, a half dozen varieties, especial
ly where closely planted are stand-'!
ing up well and acting as a soil of
cover crop against erosion. Peanuts
are holding their own. And, of
course, the upland rice is in all its
glory. An acre in onions, grown on
raised beds appears to be safe thus
far. The 10 acres of experimental
pineapple plantings at the Patterson
demonstration farm has been safe
guarded by strong storm ditches but
it cannot be determined what results a
protracted wet spell will have on this
crop, often, until long after the storm

follow a like procedure. "ThlB was
tho apostle's last conformity to a us
age of the old dispensation."
A lesson to be gleaned from St.
Matthias, from the little that we
know of him, is that no man, howeVer
obscure his origin, or lowly his posi
tion in the world, or limited his abili
ty to serve his fellowmen, can, right
ly, plead that he is of so small ac
count In the scheme of human affairs
as to make 'his hit,' or his best, noth
ing worth. There is no man, how
ever small may be his ability, or limit
ed may be his opportunities for help
ful service, but can add his mite to
the sum total for the general good,
if only his will Is set in the direction
of doing so. Many men fail in ac
complishment, and. they are by no
means men of only one talent, be
cause they fail in diligence, and ap
plication. The life they covet, and
seek, ,ns .far as they can, is the life
'without toiling or spinning." The
only street they care to live on Is
"easy street." About the only scrip
ture they can quote is:- Take no

quote with an entirclyalse, emphasis,
an emphasis that Is as wide of the
teachings of Jesus Christ as are the
two poles of the world, apart. We
have not all the same abilities. We
have not all the same, or the same
kind, of opportunities, but we nil
have some ability, and some oppor
tunities to serve our day and genera
tion with faithful, helpful, disinter
ested service, and our opportunities
never were more, or greater than they
are today. The pleading call of our
human kin to help them in this, their
day of need and necessity, is vocal
with its appeal for our sympathy, our
sacrifice, our service. Great things,
individually, the majority of us can
not do, but shame on us all, if we fail
to do what we can. Judgment is to
be ours, in the day of eternal reckon
ing, not aceo'-':nK to results, not ac-'
cording to success, as we commonly
think of success, but according as we
have made good, and faithful use of
our ability, and have embraced, or
neglected, our opportunities. God is
not a hard taskmaster, like Pharoah,
demanding that we make bricks r
w.Oicut straw, but He does ask of us '
fideliiy to tho duty, and obligation,
that is at hand, and to that fidelity,
He gives the promise, "as thy day is
so shall be thy strengtn." Let Ufl
then buckle on the armor, and go
forth with grit and gumption, to do
our best in all the ways we can to
work the works of Him that sent us,
while it is day, for the night cometh
when no man can work." Self-discipline
on the one side, and watchful
devotion on the other, are virtues
which count with God, in the man of
one talent, as well as in the man of
Mr. Bowdish's Sermon
Last Sunday the Rev, A. Craig
Bowdish at the Makawao Union
Church centered his remarks on "The
Mission of Jesus" as recorded in his
interview with Nichodemus. "For
God sent not the Son into the world
to Judge the world; but that the
world should be saved through him."
Jesus' work was constructive. Jesus
dwelt upon and illustrated the spirit
of love in action among men. Love
expressed in brotherhood and ser
vice is what transformed the natural
man into the reborn man. It is the
acceptance and practice of this spirit
of life that is the basis of all civiliz
ntion and genuine progress in the
Nichodemus was on the right course
for he came directly to Jesus to know
the truth. He did not remain away,
accepting the inaccurate reports and
base slanders, concerning Jesus. Tho
timid by nature and by education he
felt the necessity of an interview
with Jesus. What Jesus told him

The Mission Of The Obscure Man
(By Rev. J. Charles Villiers, Church
of the Good Shepherd.)
It so happens that the first Sunday
In Lent, in this year 1918, is also St.
Matthias's Day. Of all the apostles,
St. Matthias is, probably, the most
obscure one, and the one least
known. He is not to be confused
with St. Matthews, the silent apostle.
He was not one of the original
twelve apostles, who came into the
apostolic office by the direct, person
al call of our Lord. He was elected
an apostleby the primitive church.
Tho chief point of Interest in his
election is that the method of pro
cedure followed by the church, in
electing him was by 'lot'. The
names of two men who, as was the
case with the original twelve, had
been the companions of our Lord,
throughout his earthly ministry, were
presented to the church as the names
of men who were well qualified to
bear witness to the human, personali
ty of Jesus, and to the main facts in
connection with his . history, his
crucifixion, burial, and resurrection.
The election, as has been said, was
by lot. The lot fell to Matthias, and
by it he was chosen to fill the office
of apostle which by treachery, and
suicide, Judas Iscariot had left vacajit.
After his election history says noth
ing more about him. From this fact
we may conclude that though he took
his place as a member of the aposto-
late, his position in it was a very low
ly and obscure one. But we may
presume that he filled it to the best
of his ability, and opportunity. Ac
cording to tradition, Africa was the
chief scene of his labors, until he
suffered and died as a martyr, A. D.,
There is a considerable body of
opinion in the Church which thinks
that the election of St. Matthias to
the apostolic office was premature,
and that St. Peter, in his impetuosi
ty, allowed his zeal to outweigh his
good judgment, in urging the church
to the action which it took, before it
had received Its pentecostal blessing
the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Be
hat as it may, it is not without
significance that never again, so far
as history tells us, did the church
