Mr. J. P. Patterson, has received a fine
team of draft horses, which he bought
in Honolulu recently. One of the pair
is a particularly fine looking animal,
weighing considerably over 1600 pounds.

to Wailuku "bag and baggage." Mr.
Machado has accepted a position at the
Pioneer Store, he will also run the Iao
. The trees are now loaded with native
oranges which are far superior to those
obtained from the mainland. A liberal
use of them will correct many dietetic
errors, and produce beneficial results.
It is to be hoped the Mr. Kirschner
will succeed in leasing the vacant store
corner of Main and High streets. This
store has been vacant too long, and is
becomming an eyesore to the community.
v' The cold weather of the past week has
been sufficient to cause one to doubt ones
exact latitudinal residence. Extra cloth

more fuel in the stove decidedly wel
come. Miss Irene Aiken, who has been having
an extended vacation in the Oriont, re
turned home last week. While away,
Miss Aiken visited a number of the prin

With the addition of a new roof and a
coat of paint the Wailuku Hotel has not

Most people seem to have overlooked
the fact that Frank Spmmerfeld has pre

Because of the p.evalence of diptheria
in several localities the schools have been
closed, and the teachers and scholars are
chafing under the enforced idleness. It
it to be hoped that the pay of the teachers
will not be lessened for their salary is too
meager at best.
Thanksgiving services ' were held at
Lahaina in the Wainee Church by Rev.

Rev. D. W. K. White. The Chapel ex

beautiful Thanksgiving service, at which
Rev. S. Kapu delivered a short address.
Have you noticed the far away look on
the usually serene countenance of Alfred

The Ordinance Proposed In Order to

We give below, an ordinance pre
pared by City Physician MacRall,
of Honolulu, for the protection of
Food on sale in Btores and markets.
This is a subject that concerns not
only Honolulu but every part of
these islands. As things are today,
there is practically no protection,
and some of the goods displayed in
the "Japanese stores are not fit to be
displayed, let alone . eaten
is the ordinance :
Section !. It shall be unlawful
to expose for sale, or to bcII from
any stock-in-trade, within the City

able for their particular purpose.
Any such screen may be of any form
suitable for its purpose but it shall
be fastened to a rigid framework
and when in place must leave at
least six (6) inches of clear Bpace
between the net. or its framework,
at any part, and the exposed sur
face or surfaces of the food or food
stuffs which it protects. All such
screens must be so constructed and
placed as completely to prevent the
contact of flies or other insects with
any food or foodstuffs to be thereby
protected as herein prescribed, and

proval of the City and County Phy
sician and the inspection of any
duly authorized food or sanitary
inspector, or police officer of the
City and County of Honolulu.
Section 4. This Ordinance shall

None of the other Maui stocks

Haiku, Paia and Olowalu remain
at $150 asked, while Wailuku's
last sale at $175 still stands.

Ewa stock reached its lowest
mark last Tuesday, when it was
$25.50 bid and $26. It started up
slightly the following day and "is
now $26.25 bid and $26.50 asked.
For three days Oahu hung around
$23.75 bid pnd $24 asked', then
strengthened slightly and is now in
lively demand at $24, holders de
manding $25. Waialua sank to
$86.50 bid and $89 asked, and is
now $89 bid which is considerably
better. Honokaa is one of the few
stocks which has not responded to
the newer vigor, it being down at
this time to $11,375 bid and $11.75
asked. A street wnger wns offered
yesterday that Honokaa would drop
to $10, but this is regarded as little
more than mere guess work. Olaa

Alexander & Baldwin have an
nounced that the regular dividends
on plantations represented by that
agency will not be reduced during
the year 1911, even should sugar go
lower. This announcement is hearti
ly appreciated by the public and
increases confidence in the - agency
advancing it. Ilackfeld & Company
have made no statements, although
pressed to do so. In the meanwhile,
it is asserted on the street that the
dividends of Pioneer will be cut
from two to one per cent, and that
the dividend of Oahu will lie con
siderably reduced. It should be
remembered in all such cases, how
ever, that changes iu total dividends
for next year will depend upon the
price received for the coining crop
of sugar. There are no two ways
about that, and a venture on divi
dends must be based upon the ruler
of all such things- the sinmr mar
ket. There are rumors that Wai
luku's payments will cease and that
Ewa's extras will fail to materialize
next year, but to them the same
conditions apply as to Oahu and
in enclosed spaces protected from
contact of flies or other insects by
other means than hereinbefore pro

Ordinance shall apply to all markets,
market stills, stores, stands, cafes,
and restaurants at which foods.
foodstuffs, confections or provisions
for human consumption are kept
for sale, whether holding a . paid
license or otherwise, and to all
licensed or unlicensed vehicles from
which any food, foodstuff, article of
diet or confection is sold or offered
Section 6. It shall be the duty
of the City and County Physician,
the food and sanitary inspectors and
the police officers of the City and
County of Honolulu to enforce the
provisions of this Ordinance, and
for such purpose all of the said olli
cials and ofheers shall at all reason
able hours have access to any
market, market stall, store, stand,
cafe, restaurant or vehicle hfrein
mentioned for the purposes of in
spection. Section 7. Any person violating
any of the provisions of this Ordi
nance shall be guilty of misdemea
nor and upon conviction thereof
shall be fined not less than five
dollars nor more than one hundred
dollars, or be imprisoned in the City
and County Jail for not more than
ninety days, or both fined and im
prisoned. Section 8. This Ordinance shall
take effect thirty days after appro

paper on the topic "Home Geogra
phy." As advocated by Miss Flem
ing, the geography taught in the
third and fourth grades should in
clude not only the physical features,
political divisions and industrial
pursuits of our islands, but alno the
multitudinous related facts of geo
logy, meteorology, history, agricul
ture, botany, nature study, physi
ography, ethnology, immigration,
etc. In response to a question by
Mr. Oojicland the speaker said that
while she considered the outline
given as ideal for the third grade,
she had never succeeded in teaching
it satisfactorily in that grade. Mr.
Cope-land, in commenting upon the
paper expressed the opinion that
though such an outline might do
for an eighth grade or. a high-school
class, its use in an elementary grade
MissCrozier of Paia followed with
a short paper on the teaching of
Island Geography," after which
Miss Short rendered a piano solo.
A paper by Mr. Hinckley of Puu-
nene on History ' was heard with
interest and appreciation. Mr.
Hinckley took the view that many
of the most popular anecdotes re
lated by American historians are
myths; that all great historical
questions have had two sides; that
our venerated public men were
probably not saints, and that the
student of history, and particularly
the teacher should form an opinion
only after careful investigation of
The last numlier on the pro
gramme was entitled "Map Model
ing," in which Mr. Brown of Wai
hee rapidly and accurately sketched
a relief map of the group.
The election of officers for the
next meeting resulted as follows:
President, Mrs. Sabey; Vice-Presi
dent, Mr. Hardy; Secretary-Treas
urer, Mr. Brown.
In view of the action of the Board
of Education, which ut its last ses
sion deprived the teachers of the
privilege of holding conventions on
school days, the feeling was express
ed that the organization should be
discontinued, and the adjournment
be tine die. Commissioner Aiken
stated that the action of the Board
was by no means unanimous. He
was not a party to it, and had
reason to think that it would' not be
permanent. At any -rate, there
was nothing to prevent meetings
from being held, and he would hate
to see Maiii Teachers' Association
disband on account of a hasty and
ill-considered action of the Board.
This view prevailed, and the asso
ciation adjourned to meet at the
call of the executive committee.
