Taa C«ita . . . Foriy-Toar CMM Five DoUani MM^ Vmen%i ou oo •roil* FARMING IN HAWAII. One of the first things this govern' mentj did when ..Hawaii became one . of the territories of the tTnion was to establish there an i Agricultural EX' - iiierlmeht Station,: similar to those that exist in each of the continental States and Terrltorieis. The annual report from this>Station during 1902 is just at band, and contains a ^eat deal of new and interesting/lriformation. We learn from it in the first place that the staple food plant of the native Hawaiian Is the Taro. This seems to be a.n^arsh or aquatic plant, and all jpiarts of It are eaten. The root is used as a vegetable; for making Taro-ena a ;heaUb food of much value for in. valids; and P6I, the native Hawaiian food. I The leaves are eaten like spinach ; the leaf stalks like chards or as- paragjis; and the cpokcd flowers are highly esteemed as a vegetable of extremely delicate flavor. The refuse portions of the root are utilized for fat tching pigs. It can be easily under I stood, therefore, what a calamity threatened the islaud wucn this plant became infected with root rot to an extent which threatened Its pxlerml nation, and so the first duty of tbc new Experiment Station was to endeavor to find some cure for the'disease. The experiments made thus far tend :o show that the disease can be eradi cated by the'proper liming and fcrtl lizatipn of the soil. Another thing to learn, from this report jis that :therc are 125,000 cattle on the island, all of tJiem being exclusive ly for dairy purposes. Most of these ^ tattlb are blooded stock, although thfere are a few "wild cattle," descea dahts of the scrubs broiightto the is land and turned' loose more than hundred years ago. The Irish potato was formerly cul tivated on an extensive scale in the I Islands, but of late years a disease has al)Out ruined'the industry. The Sta tion is endeavoring to find the cause and the remedy for this disease. T|ie annual exijorts of coffee from the Islands amount to'o\|er i ,Oo6 .000 pounds a year^ and some of the grades have a fine flavor. The possibilities of the Islands in this direction, however, have been by no means exhausted and the report expresses the opin ion that there is a fine opening Americans who wish to engage in cof fee culture. { The Islands are the native home of many, excellent fibre plants, among themi being sisal, malinal and olona These plants constitute iho raw ma tei]ial for a great deal of the manu Ifacturlng which has been developed by the native Hawailans. As might be expected many of the tropical fruits "reach on these Island their highest degree of perfection Pineapples arc produced in great quantities, figs thrive luxuriantly as also do bananas, grapes, limes and alligator pears. Besides those familiar varieties there are papayas, guavas mangoes and I other varieties the name of which gives but little hint of their nature. The dark side of farm life in Hawaii Is evidently the depredation of insect , pests. Indeed the report frankly says "The vast niimber of injurious insocti^ oge of the greatest obstacles in the development of Hawaiian agricul ture." Particularizing somewhat, th report continues: "The aphis all but ruined, the crop of corn in 1902 on the Island of Maui. Several small farms on the Island of Hawaii were abandon ed last year because of the cut worms (It is a' saying among . the farmers there that they can "raise four crjjps ' a year, one "for themselves and three , for the! cutworms.)" Stockmen are greatly troubled over the presence of -flnfferJiMntlQaalli: bec^ o^l .tbe praff> enbe ofui^iimistilU nfimber of sdde fax* ftect, piant lioe aod mealy bogs. Tbo list pf.housobold peiits is a long one and Includes ants, cockroaches, termites, BUverflsh, clothing moths ant moBqultocB. The most serious of these is the mosquito. The only way] comfort can be obtained Is by screen- ng the bouse." And so on, and -so oh. All of which leads the careful reader to the conclusion, that while Kansas may have some drawbacks it may be thankful that J t escaped being dropped down in the middle of the Soutlj Pa.- clflc sea. • is What a funny thing "business these days anyway! Up at Topeka last week the ExecuUve Council let the contract for buying the year's supply of paper for the State. It took nearly a hundred ballots to decide,— not whether the stock of the Kansas City Paper Company. Was better than that offered by the Butler Paper Company or its prices lower, but whether Fred Trigg is a better fellow than Pink Rice! And in half a dozen counties the factions were lined up on ODQ side or the other and a lot of people were as excited as if a great Issue were at stake. It is a funny world. Will Van Benlhuyscn, who bcgai^ as a reporter on the Leavenworth Times and worked his way up through news- papcrdom until he came to the manage Ing editorship of the New York World at a salary of $20,000 a year, died last week, a Utile over forty years of age. It was a case of burning the candle at both ends. .But he probably would not have done otherwise, even if he could have forscen the end. for in things accomplished he lived longer than Methuselah. Once in a while a hero makes good. It is reported that Calvin Titus, the Newton boy who, as a musician in the Fourteenth U. S. Infantry, was the first to scale the walls of Pekin and who was on that account appointed by the President a cadet to West Point, leads his class in scholarship and is First Sergeant of the Company to which he belongs. The Chicago newspapers guess that a million and a half dollars was bet on the Derby. Adding this to the other expenses of the race and those who attended It and it would probably be within boimds to say that it cost two million dollars, f A good deal of money to pay for sensations that lasted but a little over a minute. Tom Cordry, who has done high grade editorial work for the Hutch Inson News, will run the Salina Re publican for Henry Allen after this week. The change is made because Billy Morgan, after having loafed around the Sate Printer's office for the past four years, is going liome and to work again. Although bom in the city of New York President Roosevelt is so thoroughly identified with the West in sytapathy and sentiment that It would not be unreasonable to find the East Insisting upon naming some eastern man as his running mate In 1904 in order to balance up the ticket. The Lane-Robinson feud has broken out again in the Topeka p:y)crs. Th longevity of this controversy suggests the harrowing thought that the LeJan.I Burton-Machine-Bossbustera contest will be still considered" news in the papers of forty years from now. Nearly everybody is felicitating him self already that the fifth of July is Sunday. There- are mighty few people who know how to take ia vacation In such a way as to make it a day of rest. One trouble with "the Iowa Idea, from a Republican sfandpolrft, is that Bryan is for it and Roosevelt is against it. i i KANSAS NOTES. Madison. Kansas, is to have a new water works plant.

The citizens quietly got together and appointed a committee w^ho waited on tlio jolntlst and notified him to leave. Ho did. At a swell wedding in Eldorado recently the bride wore forty garters, which leads the Hutchinson News to remark that In ten years from now she will be uislng part of the clothes line for that purpose. The Emporia Republican kicks because an Emporia girl wore low shoos on the street and had a hole in her stocking just above the heel. A little thing like that shouldn't disturb a great editor. One hundred and fifty men arc wanted at Neodesha to work on the new refinery. Neodesha will have s'lme trouble finding them as there is not an idle man in Kansas now.
