lave reached the ears of the editor.
Mr. Robertson has our heartv wishes
for continued success.
We agree with the Maui News
tiiat it would be a mistake to make
U12 study of the Hawaiian hm.'uai'e
a compulsory study in our public
schools, but it certainly might be
introduced as an alternative, and a
voluntary subject. In that case
many would undertake it, for while
it is a living language, and not likely
to die out in this generation, it is
useful to acquire it, and well to pre
serve it in IU .purity. Moreover the
statement that the Hawaiian langu
age is "hybrid in its nomenclature."
is not exactly correct. It has, of
course, imported foreign words to
express things and conditions not
indigenous, but no primitive lamruat'e
can.be .pureiv simpler pr.more ex
pressive than the Hawaiian.
The prin. ipal reasons we hold for
the preservation and use of the native
tongue, apart from its archaeoloiieal
value, are first, that it enables the
teacher of Hawaiian children to
'sound the- depths ' of his"' teaching,
and brings him into tho closest con
tact with his pupils. The best of
teaching is liable to prove only a
veneer, if the teacher and pupil can
not thoroughly understand each
other; and secondly, the labor of
learning; tliis living tongue ' enablus
the. teacher .to ympathue with Uls
pupil.-i in their endeavors to master
th3 foreign lauguage he is hnpartin"
they ain't dried currants is that
they weren't, currants before they
were dried. Good reason enough,
"Yes," said the customer, less
disputative than he was. "But what
does everybody call them dried cur
rants for then?'
"Cause they don't know any bet
ter," said the learned grocer. "They
will go right on coming in here and
asking for dried currants just the
sanio after I tell 'em why they ain't
dried currants as they did before."
"What should they ask for, then?"
inquired the customer.
"If any mau hould come inhere
and ask for dried coriuths," replied
the learned grocer, "ho would not
necessarily be a gentlenan, but I'd
bet on him being a scholar. Dried
corinths is what .j-ou should ask for
wnen you want this little sugar
coated, gritty raisin, for it's a raLsiu
pure and simple.
How's that?" the customer want
ed to know.
"Because it was a grape before
it was dried, said the grocer, "and
if raisins ain't grapes what are they?"
But you said these were dried
corinths," persisted the customer
"What's a corinth, anyhow?"
A corinth is tho smallest grape
that grows," replied the learned
grower, "audit lost its name years
and years ago because it was rradu
ally corrupted into 'currant,' which
became also the name of tho acidul
ated little berry of our garden, which
you might dry from now until Gabriel
sounds his horn without gettin" it
nearer tho condition of a raisin thau
a pea is.
"This little grape grows all over
the islands of the Gracian archipelago
and was firt exported from Corinth,
and that s what gave it its proper
name. The bunches don't grow
much bigger thau a stem of red our-
rants, and they are so full o' sugar
tnat when they are picked and dried
in tho suu they actually scorn to
melt and run together like gumdrops
and it takes a lot of care and work
to separate them again.
"After they are separated is the
time when the Grecian maiden gets
her work iu on 'em, for it is- one of
Ler pleasant' duties to juirip ou a
heap of the sticky stuff with tier bare
feet until she has oompTess'e.d enough
ofthelilUe raWns to squeeze three
boxes of them intoon'e. No' hydraulic
pump co.dd do it better. If it could,
wo wouldn't have the sand and grit
the maiden's feet mingle with the
fruit, and without that no dried
corinths are genuine. '
"Still, I shall expect folks to come
iu here ihjht along and ask for dried
curraiits,i; just the same," sdfd the
learned grocer as ho weut to'ult.
