at the Kuan beach by Mrs. Hair of

Sloggett. The good folks of llama

defrayed the expens-'of the building

a boon to the community, especially

had only nature shelter for a dress

very einbarrasing. During the

grounds and on Prof. Krauss' place
at Haiku yields closely approximat

this year, and Prof. Krauts is con
lielent that the next crop, grown
from the best of this yield, will
show even bettr results.

SCHOOL. BOYS INTKKKSTRD.
Prof. Kraus hopes to interest
ither of the homesteaders in his
work and to gain their active co-op
eration to the end that Haiku mav
become famous for something else
besides pineapples. He has already
aroused much enthusiasm ainonii
the school boys in the district by the
offer of a number of prizes to be
given for the best ten ears of corn
produced from seeds furnished from
the College of Hawaii strain. A
dozen or more boys entered the com-
petition several months ago, and
several of them have plots of corn
that would bo a credit to any farm
er in any part of tho world. It is
expected that the judging of the
boys' work will he dono next week
and the prizes awarded at tho Kui-
ilia School, on the last day of the
term, next Friday.
Prof. Klauss' idea of interesting
the boys in his work, is based on
the plan which has been almost re
volutionary in sections of the S.mth
and Middle West during the past
few years. This was the inaugura
tion of the boys' corn clubs under
the auspices of the Department of
Agriculture, each boy undertaking
to plant and care for one acre of
corn under direction of experts from
the department. The results in
many cases have been simply aston
ishing, some record breaking yields
having been produced by the boys.
In districts where the average pro
duction of corn has been less than
20 bushels per acre, some of the
young fanners have grown crops of
as high as 100 bushels or even more
per acre. In many of these sections
the average yield has been materially
increased iluriug the past few years,
elue solely to the lessons taught by
school boys in better methods. I

Two artists of international
fame, Anthony Carlson, celebrated
as one of America's greatest bassos.v
and the distinguished linglislu
pianist, Vernon Spencer.
These two artists are booked for
a tour around the world, the next
concerts taking place in Hatavia
and the principal cities of the.'
Dutch Fast Indies, followed by a
tour of Australia.
Mr. Carlson has a voice o ex
ceptional range, extending over
compass of two and a half octaves,
and every note is of bell-like puri-j
ty. His control of this pheno
menal voices is amazing. At one
moment a low "C" reverberates
through the hall and at the next,
one is astonished to hear a voice ..
almost baritone in character and
timbre. In defense of his convic-'
tion that the lied, or song, repre
sents a Jiigher standard of music
than opera, Mr. Carlson has con
sistently refused to appear, in
opera, declining, it is said, even to
sing at the great "Festspiele" at
Bayreuth when personally request
ed by Siegfried Wagner. ,
Mr. Spencer's first visit to
America was in 1903, on which oc
casion his recitals were all east of
the Rocky Mountains. For more
than twelve years he has been a
prominent factor in the German
musical world. One interesting
feature of his playing is the intro
duction into every program of a
group of miniatures as he terms
them, compositions which every
lover of music can appreciate, but
which most artists neglect. In the
playing of these Mr. Spencer dis
closes an art that is unique and
absolutely individual. Advertise
