teachers of Maui at Maunaolu Seminary, and one which drew forth
animated, not to say acrimonious discussion, was industrial educa

theory is all right, but the serious question is whether the practi
cal application is properly made of the appliances furnished to the
teachers of Maui. Of course, in the hands of qualified teachers,
these appliances are of inestimable value, but with a teacher who is
not able to intelligently lead his pupils along industrial lines, the
whole thing becomes a farce, as well as a waste of good time and
money. Industrial education should not be therefore be abandon
ed, but proper teachers should be worked in and inefficient ones
eeded out as soon as possible.
Sa Who has forgotten the dear delights of the old-fashioned
custom of paying New Year calls? Cannot the ladies of Wailuku
and of Maui generally renew the custom on the approaching New
Year's day? There is so little to entertain and interest the people
of Maui, from a social standpoint, that if the ladies would arrange
to receive their gentlemen friends on that.day, it would serve as
a source of long remembered pleasure, and also to draw our cosmo
politan people closer together in social relations. Consider the
matter, ladies, and let the gentlemen know in time to order dress
suits for the occasion.

vital need of, providing for a sub

Cuban imports into the United States.

gentleman came to Wailuku to remove the remains of his brother
