THE MAUI NKWS, SATURDAY, SKPTF.MBKR 20, 19 1.1.
Over sixty children are now at
tending tin llamakuapoko High
School, and there nro prospects of
quite a number of more youngsters
beginning their studies within a
ft"", days from now. The special
c.;:i'ch that is attached to the 8:50
train each morning, fills the bill
very well, and the children arrite
on time at the school.
WThe new building is well adapted
for school purposes and the teachers
are now getting along with their
classes in gocd shape. The school
is near the railroad depot and the
scholars have not far to walk after
leaving the train.
The ordinary public schools (
Maui opened for the term last Mon
day and there was a good attend
ance. Most of the school building.-
are too small for the number of
pupils, and efforts are being made
to rent rooms in the vicinity of the
schools in order to accommodate
the overflow. The closing of the
English speaking Japanese school at
Puuneno has resulted in no less
than 110 new pupils being enrolled
at the Puunene public school.

K. M. Pierce, a New York lum
berman whose predilection is for
automobile globe-trotting, and
whose private office is the tonneau
of his Cadillac, has started again
on a tour through the White
Mountains, Canada, Michigan, In
diana, and Ohio, in the 'same car
which since February, 1912, he has
driven 37,000 miles. After this
strenuous excursion Mr. Pierce
accompanied by Mrs. Pierce and a
companion, will hit the transcon
tinental trail in September for
southern California, where they
will spend the winter.
The big mileage piled up to date
is due to a remarkable trip last
season which consisted of a tour
all the way around the United
States in the same car. Mr. Pierce
claims a unique record on his ride
from New York to the Pacific
Coast, which he says was negotiated
without a single mechanical adjust
ment. On this summer's trip the Pierce
party will retrace part of last
season's route especially in the
southwest and southern California.
For pure touring enjoyment, Mr.
Pierce declares America without
a rival. Here are some of his side
lights on road conditions on his
border line tour:
"Through western Canada our
trip was very trying, as we were
forced to keep as close to the Cana
dian Pacific railroad as possible.
At one point we had to cross a
railroad bridge which was in course
of construction. There are many
delightful side trips to be made in
British Columbia. Between Port
land and San Francisco we climbed
Also a fine tan 18-inch
boot, laced in front, ana
1051 FORT STREET,
the longest grade in the woild, in
the Cisqtte mountains. This is a
continuous rise of ,VS miles tight
out of Shasta Springs. The road
is cut along the face of the moun
tains with an 800 to 900-foot drop
on one side and a vise on the other
of the same distance. The Cisquc
mountains are beautiful and well
worth the trip
"We were caught in a sand
storm on the California desert and
held up for more than 24 hours.
This was the most trying experi
ence of the whole trip, as we were
without food and had to use the
shovel a great deal in order to get
our car out of the sand. The drifts
ran over the running boards. The
roads for the rest of the journey
were on the whole good, but the
temperature was somewhat oppres
sive at the time of the year we
happened to be theie. The scenic
wonders that await the tourist in
this country will amply repay the
traveler for any hardships that are
encountered. That is one of the
main reasons I have elected to wind
up this summer's tour in the south
west and southern California.

If you could cast away tho pain.
The sorrows and the tears
And let the joys alone remain
From all departed years.
If you could quite forget the sighs
And recollect the song
What think you? Would you be as wise,
As helpful or as strong?
If you could lay the burden down
That bows your head at whiles,
Bhun everything that wears a frown
And live a life of smiles
Be happy as a child again.
As free from thoughts of care
Would you appear to other men
More noble or more fair?
Ah, not A man should do his part
And carry all his load,
Rejoiced to share with every heart
The roughness of the road,
Not given to thinking overmuch
Of pains and griefs behind,
But glad to be In fullest touch
With all his humankind.

Hob Winthrop chose what his father
considered the worst thing he could do.
Miss Uosnlle Hilton was the daughter
of n man who lavished luxuries upon
her till she whs twenty years, old,
then failed In business nnd died, lenv
ing her with nothing nt nil. Hob was
a gentleman-liUe. handsome chap and
had not been long in town before he

been brought up in luxury, but since
her heart wns with Bob and he snid
he was willing to take the responsi
bility, if she was, she finally yielded
nnd they became engaged.
Hob wrote his father nil about it
and received in reply: "They say
there's no fool like an old fool. My
opinion is that there could not possiBly
be a greater fool thnn a young fool."
Bob showed his father's letter to
Rosalie. She said not a word in reply,
but seemed to be doing a good deal of
thinking. Presently she snid: "Well.
Bob, there's evidently no hope for us
with your father. And your income is
too small for us to marry on. Either
you must consent to my doing some
thing to earn money or we must give
up marriage. I am well educated and
"We needn't be married right off,"
said Bob. "Wait awhile." J
Sis months of waiting passed, and
Bob found It a depressing period. Ro
salie went to lire with an aunt in
another city nnd wrote Bob that she
was getting, ready to teach. Then she
wrote that she had found a position nt
a salary of $800 a year. She could
save most of it. and in a year they
would have the wherewithal to start a
fortune. Bob smiled at her way of
expressing it, but a year seemed very
long to him.
One day Bob received a letter from
his father, who was a widower, that
he hnd concluded to take a second
wife. In order to gild bis announce
ment he added that he would celebrate
the event by givlug his son $10,000. If
lie chose to spend it in marrying a
girl who hnd been born "with a silver
spoon in her mouth" and who would
doubtless spend the money or lose it
within a year, he was welcome to do
so. But he advised Bob to follow his
father's example and marry a practi
Bob sent the letter to Rosalie, who re
plied: "Why don't you go home and
inspect your future stepmother? I
have uo confidence in the sense of old
men in the matter of marriage. I no
tice your father doesn't mention his
fiancee's age. Ten to one he hns got
hold of some chit, or rather some chit
has got hold of him, and she'll lend
him a dunce. I've found a position us
governess in the family of a widower,
and he's bothering me to marry him."
Hob wrote his father, thanking him
for his kind Intention, and added, "I
shall be able get off for the week end
nnd will run down and see you to offer
my thunks in person and meet the fu
ture Mrs. Winthrop."
Saturday evening Bob appeared in his
father's house nnd was welcomed by
his two younger sisters, nged respec
tively fourteen and ten. They were
loud in their pruises of their future
stepmother. Then came the father
beuming all over with happiness. Hob
asked if his father would tuke him to
call on the lady during the evening, to
which his father replied that the lady
was in the house and would be down

worse fool than un old fool. I iiui the
governess of your sisters und have be

The old man was much shocked and
disappointed, but he finally decided to
tuke it all in good part and consent to
Bob's marriage provided Rosalie would

all over the island and had abso

that -some people knock all the

Mr. Field, who was accompanied
by Mrs. Field and two children,
saw everything worth seeing in
