Particulars of MRS. S. A. GULICK,
1030 ULICK: AVENUE.
Denver, December 11, 1905.
Editor Advertiser: I believe you
will be good enough to give space to
this letter which I hope may assist
those who are not experienced in the
shipping of fresh pineapples to the
mainland markets, and who will be
glad of any hint that will increase
their profits. This business is grow
ing rapidly and to those who ship
"Smooth Cayenne" pines to the Coast
which have been carefully handled,
"cured" and packed, the returns will
generally be very handsome and will
be good even when the market has
slumped to $1.50 per dozen for large
fruit. I wish to call especial attention j
to curing the stems of the pines before
shipment, which is an essential fea
ture toward obtaining the best possi
ble returns, and attention to which
may at times prevent not only a par
tial but a total loss. Experience has
taught me that for shipment to the
Coast, the cut and bleeding, stem of tne
pine must be properly "cured" or dried
before one can be insured against a.
j-heavy loss by spoilage. I dare say that
the heaviest losses have almost always
been due to failure to recognize this
point. In the experience of the Haiku
Fruit & Packing Co. losses of 10 per
cent due to failure to cure the stems
have not been uncommon and at times
owing to adverse conditions of weath
er, the percentage lost has been very
high if not total. The trouble begins
insidiously in the stem and in its early
stages is often difficult to detect ex
cept by an experienced hand. From a
quiet and unsuspicious beginning the
spoiling travels upwards through the
stem into the core of the pine, and
once the spoiling reaches the core the
fruit is as surely doomed as if it had
the plague. From the core the spoiling
spreads laterally through the fleshy
part of the pine, and within a week it
is reduced to a rotten mass of pulp, a
total loss. The trouble appears to me
to be due to a fermentation due to the
action of the air on the moist and
sugary sap at the cut end of the stem.
At times a mold forms in connection
with the fermentation and can be read
ily detected, but the mold is not al
ways present to indicate the spoiling.
To "cure" the stem the open and
bleeding pores must be effectually
dried and closed so as to exclude air
and moisture. This is best done by
standing the pine upside down and ex
posing the stem to the sun. If it is
rainy the curing can be accomplished
under a roof of some sort where there
is plenty of free ventilation, and in
this case the fruit must be so arranged
that the stems are uncovered and can,
be readily inspected at any time. Best
results under cover are accomplished
when there is a strong draft directly
across the fruit. When the air is heavy
and moist the curing is difficult and the
stems should be inspected twice a day
for the first signs of a discoloration
that marks the beginning of the fer
mentation. If detected in time the
trTuble can be averted by cutting off
the affected end of the stem, after
which it stands as good a chance of be
ing properly cured as originally. "When
the cut surface of the stem appears
white and drawn and feels perfectly
dry to the touch, it is "cured" and may
be safely packed in the crate for ship
ment. With a bright sunny day the curing
is effected very readily , and will often
take place without any thought to it
during the harvesting of the pines in
the field, but in the case of damp or
wet weather, it is not so easy and the
fruit must be gathered 3 or 4 days
ahead in order to allow sufficient time
for proper curing.

Cyrus S. Edison of KapiolanI Park,
this city, says: "I am at present a
teamster and came to the Islands fif
teen years ago. "?rev;ous to that I
drove a stage coach In the United
States. These occupations necessitat
ing my being out at all seasons were
no doubt the cause of my kidney dis
order. I had the ordinary symptoms of
this complaint, and resorted to a host
of things to cure it. All of them failed
to do so, however, and when I had al
most given up hope I heard about
Doan's Backache Kidneys Pills and got
some at the Hollister Drug Co.'s store.
They did indeed relieve me and I am
quite satisfied with the benefit they
have been to me."
