Bumper crop of mangos, 1868.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]

Mango Fruit.—The past days, and these days as well, a lot [makena wale] of this delicious fruit is seen often at the markets and on the street sides of this town, but other fruits are very rare. We have seen thirty or more or less being sold for an eighth of a dollar [hapawalu], but it was not so recently when there wasn’t any; at that time at the Chinese stores it was six or ten for an eighth of a dollar. Those who crave mango are saved these days, and the adults and children peel them as they walk about the streets; and much is the diarrhea.

Dangers of Mango Season, 1912.

FELL FROM A MANGO TREE.

Joseph K. Pratt, a Hawaiian boy of just eight years of age, on this Tuesday, the 21st of May, fell from a Mango tree in Pauoa Valley, and his cheek was severely hurt; this information was given to the police department over the Telephone with belief that he was dead, but the police arrived there and it was seen that he was alive, perhaps because he regained consciousness from the dizziness after falling.

However, he broke his front teeth and maybe he broke some of his bones; the injured child was taken to Queen’s Hospital. Our instruction to parents of children is to watch over them and not allow them to climb on trees and places that would put the children of ours in danger, for they are the ones who will increase and procreate the generations here forward and through which there is hope for the increase of the Hawaiian Race.
