Last week, we again experienced
the pleasure of visiting a number
of our public schools, including
Hanalei. Kilauea and Anahola.
In Hanalei we were greeted
with delight by more than a hun
dred boys and girls, most of whom
we had numbered in our class work
some three years ago, and needless
to say that we were equally de
lighted to meet our boys and girls
oi.ee more. And such neat child
ren they were. And how they did
work. The smaller tots are presid
ed over by Mrs. Ahi, whom we
found intensely occupied in written
work, the little ones doing their
ltmost to be neat and occurate.
Their calendar work was especially
pleasing and well done.
Missa Florence Devenll h n s

and a nicer, neater, and more well-
behaved lot of children would be
lifiicult to find. Their work was
excellent and in response to our
equest for a song, they rendered
a selection which was not only in
itself very pretty indeed, but the
manner in which it was delivered
was deserving of highest praise.
e next paid our respects to the
higher grades. Mrs. Newmann,
the principal of the school, was in
charge of these grades and on en
tering we were greeted with a cho
rus of "Good Mornings" from our
former pupils. It was indeed a
happy moment to us and uncon
sciously we found ourselves inspect
ing papers and asking a thousand
and one questions. The work in
this room, notwithstanding that
there were several grades, was ex
cellent. Not a blot was found on
their extremely neat papers, the
children were orderly, and most
polite. Knowing the reputation
that the Hanalei children have
for singing, we could not resist an
other request for. a song, which
was forthcoming with undisguised
pleasure. We gave "our" boys
and girls a little talk after which
we took our departure for Kilauea
where we arrived shortly before
the close of school.
Here, again, we met nearly two
hundred of "our" former children
who delighted us with an enthu
siastic greeting. The hour was
growing late, and we were sorry to
not be able to spend some time
with the various teachers of this
school. We did, however manage
to take a look in on each, and to
have a pleasant word or two with
the children. Our time in this
school was mostly confind to the
fifth and sixth grades which are
presided over by Mrs. Chamber
lain, who is principal of the school.
Much of our time was devoted to a
talk to ' our" former pupils, but
enough observations w&re made,
however, to learn that good work
is in progress. Both grades desir
ed to read for us, which request
was cheerfully granted, and we
have no hesitancy in saying that
the reading was equal tr that of
many 7th. and 8th. grade pupils
whom we have heard. We were
pleased with the pnv.reFsiveness
among the childre . They are
truly a nice lot of .u.rls and boys
over whom ai teacher would
feel justily pro-'fi to preside. Mrs.
