Thu lVnincrnts are (mining
strength on tho Island if Knuai,
according to tlio following editorial
warning from tho Garden Island,
The busincHS community i pro
bably thankful for every day that
the beginning of t lie actual cam
paign is delayed, but sigr.s indicate
that the day of action is very close
at hand if not already begun.
So fur the Democrats are the on
ly ones who have made any fign of
activity here on Kauai. During
last campaign the party had no
organization here, but it has evi
dently made up its mind not to be
caught in that predicament again.
When McClanahan made his light
ing campaign of the island, he
didn't stop to do much organizing,
but he left the impression among
many of the followers ot the Home
Hule banner that perhaps the De
mociatic precinct lists offered a
shorter road to oflice and emolu
ments than the one that were
graced by their names, and these
same ex-IIome Rulers will be heard
from in tho coming campaign.
The Republicans have had things
very much their own way on this
island and it must be admitted
that they have used the opportuni
ty offered by their power to the
benefit of the whole community.
They expect probably 10 be in un
disputed control for another two
years, but it might be that the
question of control may become
more of an issue than is expected
and it would therefore be in the
line of good policy to get up and
do a little hustling in order todraw
the vacillating mind over -in the
camp of the party that has stood
for good and economical adminis
tration of Kauai's affairs.

Public Teaching Day
at Normal School.
The purpose.of the public teach
ing day at the Normal School is to
show the cadets actually at work.
The training teacher sees that the
cadet has the subject matter and
shows her how to present it. If
she fails in the presentation of the
work the training teacher corrects
her at the time so that the pupils
do not suffer from any mistake on
her part. This is the idea of the
The work in the Normal School
is divided into three subjects, viz.:
nature study, story work, leading
to history, and number work, as
far as possible based on the other
two. Reading, spelling, and writ
ing are grouped around the story
work and are incidental to it.
Nature study includes geography,
physiology, insects, plants, etc.
The pupils go out and make collec
tions, which they preserve in
aquariums and insect cases. The
life process is watched and the in
sect is studied in its relation to
man. In grade I the map was
studied through its several stages
the proper geographical background
of a piece of literature.
In the history department the
lesson was on the School County.
The period is about past when in
dividualism is the prominent
feature in school work. That spirit
is dying out and the spirit of cent
ralization is taking its place. The
aim used to be to make an individ
ual, now it is to make a citizen.
The aim of the School County is to
make citizens. History ' is now
taught on tho constructive basis:
first, the country, then events, en
abling tho pupil to trace from
cause to effect.
In the primary school the gtudy
of nature must of necessity be em
phasized because the pupils have
not yet reached the age for pro
dwetive enterprises. In the gram

lacework, are introduced. The

some tablets, expecting that he
