good teachers in the country get dis
eouvnged and leave and their places
are filled with mediocre teachers,
they wiuld do less harm. This is so
absurd and un-American that it
doesn't seem worth arguing. Judge
Dole in a recent article in regard
to securing labor for the plantations,
said," If such a plan should be car
ried out, some labor of a reliable
character would be obtained imme
diately; more would be provided for
the future as the children of the
settlers, even though having the
benefit of our public schools, would
naturally, after leaving school, seek
the kind of occupation their fathers
had followed, and would s.ek it near
the home. Without doubt, a few or
these would be ambitious to learn
trades and would be lost to the ordi
nary work or the fields. Utliers
would bo restless and would wander
from place to another, or even leave
the islands for the chances of the
mainland but it seems most likely
that tiie majority would follow the
occupation ot their fathers and be
drawn to stay at their childhocds

are not si fiicient because of the grad e

instruction and the large amount of
technical preparation required, be

oecause ot the necessary expense
connected with a teacher's life and
because of the provision which should

We are expected to well keep
up with the 'imes in current maga
zines and leterature, to dress well
and make a good appearance. If it is
deflicult to do this on our present
salaries how much more defficult will
it be to provide against the time
when we shall be unable to work.
Higher salaries will be obtained
when enough teachers put forth

secure them. Every teacher has

Now if the sentiment issued that the
legislature is against the schools, the
teachers should go into politics them
selves and .use every effort to elect
representatives who are in sympat hy
with the American ideal of education.
But even if you are successful in crcat

schools and their teachers it will be a

A renewal of interest in teachers'
meetings seems to be nesessavy.
For those who have been faithful end
on whom the work ban devolved, great
credit is due, but unfortunately the
attendance and the work are always
furnished by the faithful few. In
days past, the Makawao teachers'
meetings were held up as an example
and model to the teachers of the other
islands. Now whether the standard
or our meetings has lowered or
whether the standard of the meetings
has risen, it is never the less true
that the meetings do not have the
importance tney once. had and n is
very likely that we could profit by
dropping in on some of the meetings
elsewhere. Teachers should be in
terested enough - to attend these
meetings without being coerced.
A little more harmony and toler
ance are necessary In our relations
to our fellow teachers. Do we give
them credit for the good work they
are doing, or do we enjoy making
venomous flings at their work and
methods? How often we hear teach
ers 6peak disparingly of a fellow
teachers work when they have no
knowledge of his aims. Some teach
ers. make character building their
aim. Others make scholarship the
goal. Because your hobby is arith

a teacher whose fad is georgraphy,
and has more knowledge of the world

None of us is so profound that he

to keep you rrom falling n a rut.
One of the most difficult things the
