Prompting the There must have lieen fl loarl streak of honesty in
Pedagogues. the Indian who confessed that the .hardest work lie
had ever done was to watch a white man mow with a scythe. Usually
the thing that the other fellow is doing seems so easy that we wonder
why he does not do it liettcr. The "fans" watching the hasehall game
know precisely what each player should do to win. There are thousands
of village grocery philosophers in this country today who would lie glad
to tell President Taft the course to pursue in order that evcryhody may
lieeonie prosperous and happy. It is the universal trait of the onlooker
to criticize the man who is doing something, and perhaps no other group
of persons in the field of human endeavor receives more criticism than
do the public school teachers. Every voter, every taxpayer, every father
or mother whose child is under their care and the children themselves
are censors of all that the teachers do or do not do. No two children
are alike in their tastes, and it is impossible to arrange any general pro
gram of study that will impress them in just the same way. However,
the differences in childish temperaments might he fairly well harmonized
if the temperamental divergencies of the parents could 1 kept out of the
Even the parents might be pacified and brought together but that the
public press is moved to discuss, as is its legitimate province to do, the
pros and eons of every phase of the teachers' work. If a course of study
is arranged that gives the pupils plenty to do and keeps them out of mis
chief, some journal sets forth the disturbing facts that the children are
being overworked. On the other hand, there arises a presumably good
friend of the children who makes it seem quite clear that arithmetic,
which is so "hard" for many young persons, is not nearly so necessary
as many teachers maintain. He asserts that cube root, exchange, de
nominate numbers, partial payments, duodecimal and many other things
are absolutely useless unless one keeps in practise and unless he is going
higher; and that if one goes higher he can learn it in a fourth of the
time when he has use for it. The friend concludes that teaching cube
root in the eighth grade is like teaching navigation to a loy in New
Mexico because it will be useful to him if he is ever captain of a ship on
the high seas. After such a plea what happens? Doubtless the children's
friend is severely censured for advising a namby-pamby course of study
designed to make effortless mollycoddles of the pupils.
Regular Minor The countv fathers have shown commendable spirit
Nuisances. in trying to regulate the daily fish and vegetable
selling business carried on by hucksters on the sidewalks of Market
Street, Wailuku. The manner of exposing such produce for sale are
both insanitary and unsightly, and when forced off the streets the ven
dors will no doubt soon find a suitable place for conducting their busi
ness which will Ihj the beginnings of a public market for the town of
But why stop the good work there? After banishing this traffic from
the streets the supervisors should go on and regulate a few other minor
nuisances before the people of Wailuku get into the habit of thinking that
these things, though offensive in a minor sense, must always remain so.
There are old rickety broken down lenc,hes cluttering the lanais of almost
every store or shop on Market Street, and it would improve the looks of
that part of the town, if the battered ancient relics were removed. Too
often these old lcnehes from a gathering place for idlers from which to
make unpleasant remarks, (itself a woeful comment on their home and
school training,) about ladies passing by on the street and sidewalk.
Let the good work go on and let the supervisors frame an ordinance
