at the Mayor's pff ice that O'Shaugh

A dining cat is a:' restaurant ";on

However, the shortsighted railroad
officials did not, follow up this great

Dlning cars are handsomely fitted
up with- mahogany furniture, flower
baskets, stained glass, and : red and
green carpets. ; However, they . do not
contain orchestras. : For this reason
many people are passionately devoted
to dining cars and eat in them until
ithey starve to death or their creditors
Dining .cars travel very rapidly and
hare double tracked Scenery equal
portions , on ' each side. The .. first.
course . usually ' consists or nrteen
miles of scenery, after which. 1 the
diner may eat five miles of. oysters,
twenty-five miles of steak and fifteen
miles of Ice cream without incon
venience that Is on good' roads. On
railroads suffering from 'senile de
bility of the roadbed eating in a din
ing car is a feat, not a. pastime. Un
less, the traveler Is experienced ne is
almost certain to -drink his coffee
with his vest, eat his soup with his
eye, and take a large forkful of ear
by mistake while chasing his roast
beef. 1 ; .

matter and one vessel sand. ; The

pan during the 'month - and all : wero
accompanied with certificates of -fumigation.
i After thorough inspection
the; shipments were , passed .as free
from pests.. In this connection I beg
to report thai, during last season we
found some, bean shipment infested
with the rice moth and thought at
that time that the Infestation was
caused by the shipment being-in con
tact with the Infested rice shipments.
However, this season . we again found
a small shipment of ; beans infested,
and as all rice shipments v.had 't been
fumigated and found free from, pests
we now have requested the fumiga.
tion of all bean shipments under gov
ernment supervision before taien for
shipment at Kobe or other Japanese
ports. . The Japanese Merchants As
sociation has taken tne matter ,np
with their government and I don't an
ticipate any further trouble.
Thirty packages of fruit and, 23
packages of vegetables jrere confis
cated from , passengers and immi
grants during the month. One pack
age of seeds from Sydney , was found
infested with weevils ( Calandra line
aris). One package of seeds (Balano
carpus maximus) was so badly in
fested with Scolytid beetles that
hardly a single seed was free from
the pest. The package was first fu
migated for,24 hours and then aB was
destroyed by burning. One hydran
gea from the mainland was badly In
fested with Bryobia sp. a common
red spider and was thoroughly fumi
gated before delivery. The common
house ant (Monomorium pharaonis)
was found in the baggage of an im
migrant from Yokohama.
We distributed 18 lots of Japanese
beetle fungus to various , applicants.

DISCUSS SALARIES OF
' KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS
At the fall meeting of the free kind
crgarten association yesterday morn
ing at the Y. W. C. A. rooms, the
topic: as ' to . whether to have fewer,
but better, trained, assistants was dis
cussed. ? As the result of an investi
gation Into the "salaries of the sub
teachers, the , persons making the in
vestigation declared that the salaries
paid were inadeuate in return for the
work done. ' There ha3 been no com
plaint from the girls who have been
giving the mornings to the kinder
garten and have had their afternoons
for .their duties at home. After going
into the matter it was" found that the
assistant teachers preferred this plan
with less money rather than spend
ing the entire day at work and being
reimbursed accordingly. This sub-
ject will be more fully discussed, at
the: next, meeting when the rotary
system will be taken up. This sys-
temdemands fewer teachers but bet
ter. trained ones.,
During a talk by Miss Lawrence on
the kindergartens : of Honolulu and
