IS SHAPING UP
Director Wall and his Aides in
the 1912 floral Parade are gradual
ly getting the many details of the
big undertaking into splendid
Last week marked progress in
all branches of the Parade and the
various comniittess are finally get
ting the results needed for a suc
cessful event. Director Wall's
plans include a Colonial Ball that
ijtfill be one of the social features
"jf the season. This Ball will be
held at the Young Hotel on the
night of Feb 22. Announcement
will be made within a few days as
to the committee that is to arrange
the affair. The list of Patronesses
will include the most prominent
folk of Honolulu. The Colonial
Ball will round u p two nights
and a day of Hawaii's continuous
The full program of the Floral
Parade was announced by Director
Wall this week. It includes the
production of "pinafore" and the
Water Carnival on the evening of
Feb. 21, the Military Parade on
the morning of Feb. 22, the Floral
Parade in the afternoon ending
with the Japanese Lantern Parade
in the evening to be followed by
the Colonial Ball.
Energetic committees have these
various parts of the program in
hand and are working on the de
tails. What is needed most of all
are additional entries for the
Floral Parade Section. M a n y
owners of cars in Honolulu have
volunteered to "come forward and
have promised to put in their cars,
,jwhile many others are holding
i)ack: prefering,to watch the parade
Hiut Director Wall emphasizes the
fact that it is up to the people of
Honolulu to cooperate, particular
ly in the matter of decorated auto-
? mobiles and he hopes that the
spirit of cooperation will be
stronger than the pleasure of
watching the Parade from the side
lines, as it were.
Mrs. J. M. Dowsett is chairman
of the committee on decorated
automobiles and the various mem
bers of her committee are doing
their best to secure a record list of
entries. They have done their
work up with the greatest enthu
siasm and now it is up to the
owners themselves to do the rest.
The Float section of the Parade
will be the most attractive, un
doubtedly, of all the many attrac
tive sections past events have dis
played. Prospects for entries from the
other islands are better than ever
sfiiefore. The Inter-Island Com
pauy is making an offer of' half
rates for autos entered i n the
Floral Parade, that is, that fare
will be charged only one way.
The outside entries will be fea
tured this year as never before.

A Pretty Musicale
Mrs. Carter gave one of her de
lightful musicales last Thursday
afternoon, invitations having been
issued to parents and friends of
the pupils that they might enjoy
the treat which 'was in store for
them. Decorations consisted of a
profusion of shasta daisies and
pink carnations. '
The children did beautifully,
the entire program being carried
out with perfect ease and grace.
Miss Dora Broadbent, in a trio
of pianofortes, acquitted herself
midst high praises, dementi's
"Sonatina," was played in. a
masterful manner, while special
mention must be made to another
which was filled with beautiful
expression. The piece was "from
the Impromptu (Rosamond.) The
ease with which Miss Dora con
trolled the most difficult parts,
showed a technique of which many
older persons might feel justly
The pianoforte solo by Miss
Edith Rice, entitled Sweet Eve

splendid precision, while A Lei

rounded out expression which dis
played a degree o f skill rarely
developed in one so young.

If energetic school children indicate prosperity, then this
Territory might well be considered exceedingly so, since from
most every nook and corner, from most unexpected sources,
comes subscriptions to the limit of five books and in several
cases requests for permission to take more than five subscription
have been received. These requests cannot be granted, how
ever, as there would not be enough books to go around.
The success with which our little agents are meeting, is due
to their ability as huslters and to the standard of Tin; Gakdkn
Within the next three weeks, hundreds of little boys and
girls will possess themselves with the very books which they
would never otherwise be able to secure. One Maui boy writes
that he secured his five subsciptions in one day after school hours.
All that is necessary is to explain to your friends that with
every subscription you get a fifty cent story book, show them the
paper and the rest is easy.
Agents should write plainly their address, and name of their
choice of books.

The Emperor's birthday was
fittingly observed at the Kegel

big turn out was there, including
Rev.-Hans Isenberg, who, .during
the evening, nfade a short and
highly appropriate talk for which
hearty applause was rendered.
An unusual supply of the German
beverage and delicious eatibl'es
were on deck and several inter

ed off, the most interesting being
the game between the moose and
anti-moose, the former winning
out by the small score of two
points. Following this game,

A most enjoyable birthday party
was that which was given by Mrs.
Wtn. H.Rice Jr., last Friday after
noon, the occasion being the elev
enth birthday anniversary of Mas
ter Harrison and the first birthday
of Little Miss Dora Mary. The
fact that the two birthdays fell on
the same date though ten years be
tween, is a coincidence rarely ex
perienced and gave rise to much
comment concerning the distin
guished couple. An unusual num
ber of pretty gifts were received and
most highly appreciated.
Secretary Maser of the Kegel

to the club's challenge recently
issued to the Maui bowling team.

SHOT 10 DEATH
Special to The Garden Island.
Koi.oa, Jan., 28. In a labor
camp about noon to-day, a shooting
affray occurred which will probably
end in the death of a Filipino who
isaid to have hailed from Makawe
li but a few days since, accompa
nied by a young lady of the same
nationality. It seems that the in
jured man had been paying his re
gards to the lady in question but
the latter's father objected, and on
learning that they had eloped to
Koloa, he came in search ol them.
That he expected trouble is eviden
ced in the fact that no sooner had
he discovered the couple in the Ko
loa camp than he began to make
things warm for the young man by
pumping bullets at him to the num
ber of five shots four of which took
effect in various parts of his body.
Friends o.f the injured man quick
ly overpowered the would-be-murderer,
and held him until the police
arrived when he was taken to jail,
while the victim was speedily con
veyed to the hospital where it was
learned that his wounds would pro
bably prove fatal.
It is claimed that the- young
man first attacked the elder with a

school libraries are to be allowed
extra funds with which to purchase
new books, the allotment being
based on certain conditions. The
communication received by Mr.
Brodie is as follows:

counties and the different schools
in each county.
Pirst: Apportion the total sum
S3600 among the several counties

City & County of Honolulu $1332
County of Hawaii 1188
County of Maui 612
County of Kauai 468
Ihe distribution of the sum ap
portioned to each county among
the several schools of that county
is based on the following:
A primary pupil, 1 unit; a
grammar pupil, 2 units; and a
high or normarpupil,' 4 units.

Suggestions in Regard to Selec
tion of Books for School
For the primary grades the
books should be selected largely
from sets of readers for primary
grades, simple stories, fables,
I' or more advanced grades books
on travel, History, biography.
poems, natural history, etc. as
well as books of reference should
be added to the library.
In all school libraries some
books which are helpful to the
teacher in carrying out the re
quirements of the course of study
should be found such as Cotn
stock's Manual for Study ofxIn
sects. Tarr & McMurry's Geo
graphies,. Le Conte's Elements of
Geology, Elementary Lessons' in
Zoology, Classic myths, etc.
Following these suggestions,
each principal may select from a
list of books authorized bv' the
Department, such books as are
suitable for his school, the cost of
which will be within the amount
apportioned to that particular
school, and submit the same to
this Department. If any principal
fails to make a list of books for
his school or the list is not received
in time to make up the order, the
Department will select the books
for that school.
The books will be ordered from
this office and shipped to the
