This time it is our esteemed friend
Philip Rice, and may he ever be a
shining star in his profession is
the greatest harm Tin-: Garden
Jsland can wish him.
The Grand lurv's renort is
most credible one, giving evidence
of the thoroughness which always
marks our grand jurors as men up
on whom dependence can b e
When it comes to the question
of erecting $4,000 sanitary closets
for our public schools, it would be
more to the point, and more indic
ative of common sense, to spend
S5o. uu or so on the improvement
of that railroad crossing below the
Pair view Hotel.
In visiting the Kilauea school
last week, we were surprised to
find a very dangerous hole in the
floor through which a cat might be
thrown, greeting the eye as one
enters the upper grade room. We
don't pretend to say who is res
ponsible for this condition, but its
a sure thing somebody is, and who
eer it is, would do well to spend
about thirty cents for a new board
before a child falls through and
breaks a limb.
The lack of proper observance of
quarentine restrictions in the Ha
nalei incident, is a matter of vital
importance and one wherein we
trust a valuable lesson has been
learned. We do not believe Lhat the
Deputy Sheriff of Hanalei would
knowingly endanger the commu
nity by granting permission to an
individual to break quarentine re
gulations at will, and are bourne
out in this view in learning that

Health officer, at once, did his best

surance that he would be more care
ful in the future. With a father tro-
Sciiooi, Gardening is a profit able
!but many times a vexing task. To
no work does the adage, "Poorly
done, better not be done at all,"
apply with greater force, than to
the making of school gardens. A
well arianged and carefully kept
bed of healthy growing plants will
g4ve inspiration and encourage
in e n t to future success of the
maker, but hap-hazard, straggling
rows of feeble looking vegetables
or drooping flowers destroy the
last bit of energy and ambition in
School gardens are too often un
dertaken with a view to creating
a sensation i n the community
rather than to teaching the rudi
ments of botany and agriculture.
Again, just to plant seeds and to
watch them grow is not the object
of scho .'. A. ri -ulture.
Do liw '.indeitake the work un
less your chances for success are
good. Many a teacher with a poor
and cast-off plot of ground and a
great amount of other work, has,
with her limited time, attempted
the making of a school garden.
You may easily guess the result,
a patch of weeds to adorn the
landscape during the summer
months and the "glorious har
vest," much sung about and much
dreamed of, remains an unrealized
A small window garden, of some
hardy potted flowers, with prob
ably one box of some economic
plants such as peas or beans and
a pan of bulbous plants, is of more
real value to education many times
than a broad exnanse of bids of
garden vegetables of doubtful suc
cess as to crop.
Work for far-reaching and last
ing results. In using a garden,
the ideal that the teacher should
have is to fix in the minds of the
pupils, the nature of the plant as
a growing and living thing. The
prime object should be to arouse
the inquisitive nature of the boys
and girls. That the plant chances
to grow is not enough, bat why
does it grow? What does it feed
upon? What does it breathe?
Why is it green? Why does it al
ways grow upward? Why does
the stem branch? Of what use are
These and a thousand other
questions should be in the mind of
the child. Of course the teacher
will not have time or ability to
answer every one, but the thirst
for knowledge has been stimulated
and that is sufficient for the pre
sent. Impress upon the young
minds the active, growing, living

In our last issue we spoke in
