FIRES AND SHOWS.
THAT every precaution should be taken against fire in theaters is
very evident. All doors should open outwards, and a sufficient
numberj of exits should be provided.
The recent narrow escape from a terrible tragedy at Lahaina should
make the authorities take notice. It was only by the best of good luck
that many people were not killed in the Lahaina affair.
In Honolulu the authorities are very strict as regards moving picture
houses, and a leaf from the capital city ordinances could, with much
good effect, be added to the municipal laws of Maui.
WHY NOT WATSON?
IT looks as if the next Governor of Hawaii will be E. M. Watson.
Already the Honolulu papers are taking up Watson's name and
there is no doubt that the well known attorney will be deeply con
sidered by President Wilson when he assumes the reins of office. Wat
son would make a good governor, and he has always been in such close
touch with Washington, that he would drop easily into the Territorial
Chief Executive's chair.
WIRELESS Day and Night ! It seems like a dream, and yet
it is true. Messages can be sent at any time from Oahu to
San Francisco, or any place on the mainland where there is a
station. The feat seems incredible, but it is true. The rays of the
sun have been overcome! and constant wireless communication is the
order of things now-a-days. What next?
Offer up thanks next Thursday, and don't forget to pray that there
may be something to be thankful for during the next four years. Un
der Democratic rule there will be mighty little however, Maui did

"The child of six is concerned
chiefly with discovering the world
about him, particularly those things
that concern him directly. He is
full of life and activity, and is
therefore drawn to those things that
have to do with life and activity."
What more likely subjects to in
terest him than the dragon-fly, the
wasp, the mosquito, the growing
plant, etc., and what a splendid
opportunity for acquiring a large
and useful vocabulary the imple
ments he uses, the soil, water,
names of processes, colors, parts of
plants and animals, etc., while his
natural activities are being satisfied
and through interest he is learning.
Without interest there i3 no learn
ing. A necessity for the use of lan
guage is created and opportunity
afforded for acquiring it.
McMurry says, "If a course of
nature studies is begun in the First
grade and carried systematically
through all the years up to the
Eighth grade, is it not reasonable
to suppose that real insight into na
ture, based on observation, taken
at first hand, may be reached? It
will involve a study of living plants
and animals, minerals, physical
apparatus and devices, chemical ex
periments, the making of collec
tions, regular excursions for the ob
servation of the neighboring fields,
forests, and streams, and the work
ing over of these and other concrete
experiences from all sources through
skillful class teaching."
The Hon. P. P. Claxton, Com
missioner of Education, in a com
munication, dated October 29th, in
speaking of our present Course of
Study, says, "On the whole, it
seems to me excellent- It is much
better thought out than most courses
of this kind which come to me. It
seems to be based on sound princi
ples and worked out with a good
understanding of the interests and
capacities of children, as well as
with some understanding of the real
purpose of school work. I like the
close articulation of the work of dif
ferent years and of different courses,
and I am especially pleased with
the amount of good literature which
you are giving to the children of
In his criticism of the work
planned under the heading "Home
Geography," he says, "It is not
very clear that you require much
out of door WQrk. . Of course, most
elementary work in geography must
be done out of the school room in
the fields, the forests, shops, stores,
at the railroad stations, etc.''
I think Mr. Copeland makes an
other mistake when he uses his
energy in destructive criticism of
his fellow teachers and of the De
partment which employs him in
stead of in faithful, loyal, and
harmonious service for the improve
ment of the educational system and
the uplift of our territory's- home

CUT RATE8 FOR KISSES.

established a "flat rate of one cent a

THB SEA'S CRBBN LIGHT. ,
Dear Tip Did yon'eVer eec a
green light iw-hen the air and
Uie- iter and the sky all turn green?
Green as grass! A pure jade green.
Everything green, ship, sailors, sea,
everything. I have told of this
beautiful and perfectly marvelous
thing to a lot of doubt y landsmen,
and what did they do but try to
give the horse laugh.
The phenomenon known as the
"green ray" at sunset and sunrise
is the brilliant green color which
the line bounding the upper limb
of the sun assumes when it is just
touching the water horizon, just
a moment before raising or a mo
ment after sinking. Some painter,
it seems, has caught this glorious
grr;.'n and painted it.
