Frogs, 1903.

The Business of Raising and Selling Frogs.

Representative Andrade said he will build a frog breeding grounds in some of his taro patches at Manoa, And according to him, the requests for frog legs for eating in this town is increasing. Currently, Hilo is where frog is eaten a lot, and when Honolulu people see the progress of those in this business, they will think of building a place to raise those animals.

Mr. Andrade believes that profits from this business will grow and he will start this venture in Manoa, and according to him, it will not be long for Honolulu people to wait before they will see his juicy frog on tables at restaurants in town.

Hillebrand brings in frogs, 1857.

Something New.

Kauka Makaainana (Dr. Hillebrand) has five FROGS [RANA] from California and he has put them in his taro patch. They are doing fine. They make strange noises. Their nature is that they are animals that have two lives. They eat small bugs: flies, grasshoppers, and other things like that. Therefore they are good. O People of Honolulu, do not harm these new things if you see them, because they are valuable.
