An agreement of sale has been made by the government with Walter McBryde for the mountain lot of Kukuiolono, in the Kalaheo tract, Kauai. The price is $894, one-tenth deposited on signing of papers, and the purchaser agrees to plant 3000 trees every year for ten years on the land. At the end of that period he is to receive a deed of the lot. The purpose of the agreement is stated to be conservation of the forest and of its water resources.
