WAILUKU, MAUI, T. H SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1914.
On Wednesday afternoon last Ilia
'.tubmen's Aid Society had an un
''uiually largo attendance at the
meeting held with Mrs. Frank Som
nierfeld, when Mrs. Clarence G.
White, of Haiku, talked for awhile
in a very entertaining manner on
the Montesorri method of teaching
This is surely the children's age.
Those of U3 who in childhood labor

.might well be envious of the children
of the Montesorri schools whose
little minds are developed as easily
and naturalb as buds blossom into,
flowers, and with as little assistance
from adults as possible.
"We are too apt'', said Mrs.
White, "to try to do everything for
the child instead of teaching it to
wait upon itself, which every mother
knows requires infinitely more
That wonderful Italian teacher,
Madamo Montesorri, originally

they are developing concentration
and the power of close observation,
and are thus ureparing their minds
for the more serious undertakings
of their later school life. Mrs.
White's experience with her own
children has demonstrated, to her
own satisfaction at least, that by
becoming familiar by sight and
touch with tfic forms of tho letters
of the alphabet outlined in sand
paper on cardboard, writing follows
as a matter of course.
Mrs. White brought with her
some of the devices used in tho work
to illustrate her lecture, and these
were examined with interest by
those present. Tho meeting was in
charge of .Mrs Enos Vincent.

"Pigs is pigs", even when part
of the animal is missing. Over on
Molokai there has been much de
bate lately and much talk about
the porkers of that island. The
mysterious disappearance of sun
dry piglets and their subsequent
appearance in the Honolulu mar
kets, has given rise to much recri
mination around Pukoo and a few
other places on Molokai.
The strange part about the affair
is that the pigs when roaming
their owner's estates on Molokai,
have always been recognisable by
the fact that a registered ear-mark
showed out plainly on each little
piggies head. When the pigs ar
rive in Honolulu, the ear-mark
does not show, for the simple
reason that the whole ear has been,
in all cases, sliced off.
The fact that pigs were constant
ly reaching Honolulu from Molo
kai, and that the bacon makers
were all minus an ear, led the
unsophisticated dealers in the capi
tal city to imagine that a new
breed of pigs was being raised on
The dealers wrote to the hog
ranchers and asked about the new
breed; then the fur began to fly.
As no Molokai ear-mark was
known to resemble a sliced off ear,
the various owners began to must
er their pigs and count noses. A
vast shortage was shown on some
ranches, and then traps were laid
to catch the men who were first
destroying the ear-marks, and
then shipping the hogs to Hono
lulu. The sheriff of Maui and the
county attorney journeyed to Molo
kai and looked into the matter.
Some arrests are expected to be
made in the near future, and mean
time, the trade in earless pigs is
falling off a lot.
People who are dependent on
water from the Kula pipeline are
now in terrible straits, reports
county engineer Bruue, who is
looking over the whole proposition
with a view to remedy conditions.
Water has been non est for ten
days or so, and the amount of the
fluid at the waterhead is less than
for a long time past. Residents of
lower Paia are indulging in brack
ish water, and some people even
have not got that to drink. Soda
water and beer is at a premium
and even some "washing" is done
with salt water not beer.
The people who need water de
mand a reservoir somewhere, and
it is said that only two places are
suitable for the big tank. Oliuda
is one, and the Waiakamoi water
head is the other, say people whp
knew the country. At any rate,
water is short and the summer is
coming on. Brune claims that a
reservoir would be a revenue pro
ducer, and thinks that a private
individual would make much
money out of a reservoir if lie were
allowed to make a fair charge for

Up at Paia the tennis tourna
ment is going strong, and the play
shown in the mixed doubles has
been of excellent variety. Nearly
every afternoon there is a crowd to
be seen on the courts, and the in
terest is always well sustained, es
pecially when the contesting teams
happen to hail from different dis
tricts. One match which was played last
Sunday afternoon, was a very in
teresting one and it was between
Mrs. Dale and T. D. Collins and
J. Collis and Miss Couch. The
first set was won by Collins and
his partner, 6-3, but the second
set went to the Paia pair by the
same score. The third, and decid
ing set, was won by Collins and
Mrs. Dale and, strange to say, the
score was the same as in the other
two sets 6-3.

the semi-final stage, and some
really fine tennis should be seen

Cubs beat C. A. C, score 8 to 7
Asahi beat Kahului, score 14 to 5
In the first game of the series of
the Maui Junior Baseball League
played on the Wailuku diamond
last Sunday morning, tho Young
Cubs defeated the C. A. C. by a
close score of 8 to 7.
The game started at 10:30 a. m.
with the C. A. C. at bat, and the
Cubs in the field. In the first in
ning, the C. A. C. scored two runs,
but the Cubs gathered in 5 runs
after bombarding Chong's delivery
all over tho field. C. A. C. man
aged to tally one run in their half
of tho second inning, and Willio
Cummings scored one run for tho
Cubs. From the third to the latt
inning, both teams were playing an
uphill game, and when it was over,
the score stood 8 to 7 in favor of
tho Young Cubs.
The game was exciting, through
out and some fine playing was done
by tho winning team. D. Chong
showed a remarkable improvement
in his pitching from the second in
ning on when ho held the Cub3
down to only 3 runs.
KAHULUI VS. ASAIII.
The defeat of the Kahului club in
the afternoon game by the Asahi
team was due to poor sticking and
base running on their part. They
seemed to have grandstand fright
in the beginning, and they could
not hold together.
. The Kahuluis could not find Ma
nao's delivery until the fourth in
ning, when they scored four runs.
They made one run in the eighth,
and had tho railroad boys gingered
up from the start, 1 1 1 ey would have
done better. From the beginning
of tho game, the Asahi boys just
romped through them, over them
and under them, and tho result of
the game was 14 to 5 in favor of
