Principal Crops of Islands Are Sugar,
Bice and Taro
Washington, I). C., Dec. 14. —The
three principal orops of the Hawaiian
Islands are suttur, rice anil taro, and 9 0
per cent, of these are the products of
irrigation. Water is therefore the life
blood of the islands, and since 1909
the United States Geological Survey, in
co-operation with the Territory of
Hawaii and assisted by private corpor
ations nr..l individuals, has been car
rying on an exhaustive investigation
of the water resources of the islands.
The latest result or' this work is a re
port bv 0. 11. Pierce and 0. K. Larri
ton just issued by the Survey as Wa
ter-supply Paper 33fi.
The investigations of stream flow in
the Territory are not complete, nor
do they include all the streams that
might advantageously be studied, but
they embrace as many of the streams
an : ditches on the four larger inlands
(Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu and Maui) as
the available appropriations would
allow. It is essential that of
stream flow should be kept during a
period of years long enough to deter
mine within reasonable limits the
range of flow from the maximum to
the minimum. The length of such a
period manifestly varies for different
streams. Kxpericnce has shown that
the records should be kef I from 5 to 20
This report contains the results of
stream and ditch measurements con

Disappeared at Age of IS and Would I
Now Be 21
Kane, Pa., Dec. 14.—After searching
for over seveu years for Keith Dal- t
rymple, the former Port Alleghany boy I i
who recently fell heir to a fortune i
amounting to $365,000, without finding !
any trace of him, relatives and friends '
now believe that he has met with foul ,
piay- ! (
At the age of 13, young Dalrymple j l
was taken to Long Beach, Cal., to re-1 (
side with his grandmother, Mrs. F. H.
Arnold. A few months later the boy r
left the Arnold home to visit a frieud (
of the family who lived in the vicinity (
of the Arnold home. Since that,
despite continuous search, no trace of j
the boy has been found.
A sad incident in connection with i (
the mysterious case was the death of | (
the boy's mother, February 19 last,
the twenty-flret anniversary of his '
birth, directly due to worry over her ' (
son's disappearance.
The final account of the estate of;
E. P. Dalrymple and Keith E. Dal-;
rvniple has been filed by W. A. Dusen-j
bury, executor of the "estate of J. E. j
Dusenbury, who was guardian of Keith s
Dalrymple and executor of the E. P. J
Dalrymple estate. The guardian's ac-|!
count shows a balance of $365,000 be- j
longing to Keith E. Dalrymple.

Bt*te. College Proves Money Is Being
Wasted by Other Rations
State College, Pa., Dee. 14. —To de
termine the best ration for steer fatten
ing in Pennsylvania a feeding experi
ment. concluded Saturday at the Penn
sylvania State College, has upset all
theories as to the value of the Lancas
tor county region as an economical one.
For more than 14 0 days, 60 head of
cattle, with beef blood predominating,
were nourished with five distinct lotSj
of feed, and the summary proves con-1
clusively, accenting to Professor \V. H. i
Tomhave, in charge of the experiment, :
t.h«t farmers persisting in feeiling by |
the old system are losing money. He ]
attributes the changing condition to the
high cost of feed, especially bran.
One of the most impressivo results
obtained, said Professor Tomhave, was
the reduced cost at which beef can be
produced by farmers having silos. Corn j
silage, as a beef producer, was unex- \
celled by any other ration. Aud the :
experiment included alfalfa, cottonseed!
meal, shelled corn and hay. A silo, it
was shown, preserves the corn crop in
a better manner than is possible in i
harvesting it and husking it, and corn ]
silage is a succulent feed that mnkee it
possible to get the maximum food nu
trient available from the other foods
fed in combination.
At the termination of the experiment!
it was concluded that corn silage at]
$3.50 per ton as the sole roughage is
more economical than corn silage nnd
alfalfa hay combined, when the latter I
is sls per ton. As a source of protein
wheat bran at $-5 a ton is more ex- 1
pensive, it was learned, than cottonsee I
meal is $34 a ton. The additional cost
of grinding corn was not compensated
by greater gains from the steers, liullo-r
tins will be issued by the college. ;
