The principal of the Waimea
School has introduced a system
which prohibits any child from en
tering the school ground until half
past eight. The object of this ar
rangement, is to prevent the many
petty disturbances which usually
occur on the play grounds when a
teacher is not on hand. The idea
is a success in every respect, teach
ers and children alike, being much
pleased with the new rule.
Miss Gardner, assistant in the
Kalaheo School, has the distinction
of being the president of the Ilima
Club, Makaweli's social fraternity.
Teachers should not forget that
the training which a child receives
in the class room, is reflected on
its way to and from schooL- All

the teacher, arc reproduced by the
pupil, hence the necessity of ever
being on guard to prove a living

There are many of our teachers
who do not seem to entirely under

of the school law which refers to
"35 pupils to each teacher." The
explanation is this:

Special to The Garden litanJ.
Hanalei knows how to keep the
social ball rolling, and the Chinese
form no inconsiderable factor in
the social life of the place. Chinese
New Year was celebrated for about
two weeks, during which several
dinners were given to which the
leading citizens of Hanalei were
invited. And last Saturday the
Chinese fairly outdid themselves in
a grand feast and celebration.
Written invitations had been re
ceived by a large number of the
citizens of Hanalei to a six o'clock
dinner at the Chinese Hall "in
honor of the new Chinese Repub
lican Government." At irregular
intervals during the day the shoot
ing of guns and firecrackers herald
ed the approaching festivities of
the evening; and when the guests
arrived at six, the Chinese were in
the midst of the celebration.
Over the hall waved the large
flag of the Chinese Republic, and
the entrance was gorgeously deco
rated with Chinese flags, banners,
and emblems, while fireworks and
the Chinese band greeted the arriv
ing guests. The upper floor of-
the hall, where the feast was spread,
was beautifully decorated in true
Chinese style with flowers, fruits,
flags, and the most wonderful ban
ners richly embroidered in brilliant
colors; and conspicuous above all '
this artistic array was draped the
new Chinese ffag.
Two large tables were laid, one
for the Hawaiian guests, and the
other tor the Scotch, English, Ita
lian and American guests. Every
thing was cooked and served iu
real Chinese style, And such a
dinnerl It would seem that all the
Chinese brownies had been tasking
their skill and ingenuity in provid
ing this bountiful feast of good
presenting one teacher for every 35
pupils enrolled at the end of June.
This means, simply, that no teach
er is supposed to have less than the
35, but places no other limit on at
larger enrollment. In other words,
a teacher shall .have no less than 35
pupils, but she can, if she so de
sires, have one hundred and thirty
five. The 35 pupils, only signify
that the number of teachers alloted
for the 'Territory cannot exceed
one for every thirty five enrolled,
and does not have anything
whatsoever to do with the work of
We deeply regret that there
doesn't seem to be anv help for
the present absurd state of affairs,
and to the teachers who have been
wronged are being wronged' and
who have been unable to secure
redress, we would suggest absolute
submission to the mandates of the
powers that be, as it will be but a
short time until the worm will turn.

made ready for the evening pro

chief host, and master of ceremo

in the Hawaiian tongue, and ex
plained how the Chinese Republic
came into existence. Mr. Ah Sack
next addressed the audience in
English telling the story of the
new Republic. Mr. Makee, in be
half of all the guests, replied in an
appropriate and eloquent speech
iu Hawaiian. T h e n followed
speeches by Messrs. Sanborn, Dirk

pressing in behalf of the English
speaking guests, appreciation of
the hospitality of the Chinese of
Hanalei, and encomiums and sin
cere good wishes for the new Chi

la, representing the Hawaiian
guests, delivered an able and elo
quent address in Hawaiian.
Then followed music, fireworks,
dancing and skillful gymnastic per
formances by several of the Chinese.
About ten o'clock the guests, with
many expressions of appreciation
of the evening's entertainment,
departed for their homes while
their hosts bade them aloha with a
grand display of fireworks.

CLARK'S CHAN GES
Washington, D. C, Feb. 27.
That Champ Clark will be the de
mocratic nominee for president and
that Taft will carry the Chicago
convention, is the belief of Repre
sentative Bartholdt of St. Louis.
Bartholdl thinks the speaker will
get the Kansas delegation, and that
it is inevitable he will be the win
ner in Baltimore.
"Taft and Clark they will be
the opposing candidates in the
campaign," said Uartholdt todav.
"And if they are, it will be a cam
paign between gentlemen a battle
for principles. There "will be no
injection of personalities.
"Roth men are my warm friends
and I would say on the stump iu
Missouri or eslewhere that there is
no purer, cleaner man iu public
life today than speaker Clark. He
is as innocent as a child and as
pure as a diamond.
"The supporters of none of the
other candidates will turn to Wil
son, whereas they probably will go
to Clark when it becomes apparent
that Wilson cannot be nominated.
"Wilson's greatest test of
strength will come on the first bal
lot, in my opinion, and I have not
the slightest idea that he will have,

SOME AUTO TALK
"Sometimes I wonder that the
world makes the rapid progress it
does when one recalls the almost
universal human failing of putting
off today anything we think can
go until tomorrow," says Frank
E. Hawes of the Associated Garage
Ltd., local representative of the
Chalmers Motor Company. "No
matter how urgent the need, it is
human nature to put off.
"I have been thinking partic
ularly of the many people who
have made up their minds to buy
cars who have long decided what
car they will buy, but who keep
putting off the actual signing of
"With the fust warm davs of
I Spring these people will come
nurrying i n, wanting cars the
same day. When they are told
that they will have to wait even
that they cannot get cars in some
instances -they will be very much
"And it's their o w n fault,
usually. Why do they not place
their orders now?
"It should be remembered that
a motor car cannot be built in a
day. Careful manufacturing takes
a long time. Then tops must be
made and fitted and in the Chal
mers factory each top is made for
the car that is to carry it. Many
litle finishing touches take time.
"Then there is a matter of
freight; that always takes time.
Cars cannot be shipped one at a
time; and often the late orders
wait several days while the balance
of a car load is being made up.
"People who want cars for
spring should get their orders in
now. I can only advise them not
to wait for a bright day and then
demand a car at once. If you
have made ud your mind as to
what car you want, give the maker
and the dealer a fair chance by
setting your delivery date now.
"I really believe that many who
want "Thirty-sixes" for spring
are goingo be disappointed. The
output is already two-thirds. sold,
and the biggest selling season is
yet to come. The only sure way
to get your car when you want it
is to place your order at once."
