' Tl question of a Territorial Agricultural and Industrial Fair

1 News strongly supports the proposition. True.the agricultural hiss
' trot has become a stale joke in the States, where farming nas been
" reduced to a science, but in Hawaii there are so many new fields

l fair would be the one needed educational stimulant, and will repay
v a hundred fold what it costs. Such an exhibition, well managed,
will necessarily tend to diffuse a practical knowledge of the new and
paying industries which have been and re about to be initiated

steamship companies are awake to
the possibilities. The cominj; to Haw

A young sergeant distinguished
himself by his gallantry at Donelson
and was recommended for promotion.
He was summoned to appear before
a military board at Washington and
closely questioned by West Point
graduates. None of hU answers were
satisfactory. When the report reach

a moment, laid the paper on his desk,
then, taking one gaunt knee in his
hands, said: "I don't know wha' to
do with this case. Here's a young
fellow who knows nothing of the
science of losing battles. He doesn't
even know the technical name of the
fortification on which he ran up the
stara and stripes in the face of the
enemy." He thought a moment, then
