iNDUi'UNDUNCK Day, 1912, had a
new meaning. It stood for libera
tion from the old idea that the only
way to celebrate the birthday of
the country was by a saturnalia of
noise, destruction and death. So
many better, more enjoyable and
more fitting observances o f the
day have been devised and proved
out, that there is now no excuse
for allowing the anniversary to de
generate into a mere matter of
noise. The Sane Fourth idea is no
longer a fad. It is an established
fact in such centers as New York
and Chicago, and if these large
cities can control and prohibit the
nuisances of dangerous explosives
there is little wonder that thous
ands of smaller cities and towns
have also barred the old-time riot
of death and destruction.
As a result of this movement the
Fourth of July deaths last year, as
recorded by the Journal of the
American Medical association, were
only 57, as compared with 131 in
1910 and 215 in 1909. while the
roll of injuries was reduced in
equal proportion. The fire losses
due to the celebration were almost
negligible in the cities in which
the Sane Fourth was observed, as
against the former expectation
that the day would break all re
cords for the number of alarms.
These benefits should be made
general, and they will be if the
municipalities will enact and en
force the necessary ordinances and
the public sentiment of the com
munity will stand behind them.
Independence Day Should mean
too much to the nation and the in
dividual in these times of change
and progress to permit its lessons
to be obscured by an orgie of fire
and noise. Conservation is nowthe
watchword, and a proper celebra
tion pf the day saves the lives and
limbs of thousands of victims to
the cannon cracker and toy pistol
and prevents the destruction of
millions of dollars, worth of prop
erty by fire.
Onu of the strongest impulses in
all life is that o f sport. It is
manifested in the colt as it
gambols over the field; in the cat,
playing with the ball; in the dog,
running hither and thither, chas
ing a stick. The child has it and
is ready from infancy to play with
doll or ball. All nature is playful.
It is in play that life forgets itself
and really enjoys things. Under
present conditions the boy and
girl have to cease playing at an
early age, but it doesn't follow by
any means that the natural desire
for enjoyment is gone. Most peo
pie would like to travel and see
things; most people enjoy enter
tainment. The increased interest
in sports which prompt newspapers
to devote page after page to report
ing what other people do in games
and contests is proof that the peo
ple enjoy play even after having
grown up. The fact, also, that
newspapers devote many columns
to theaters, that the picture shows
are growing so rapidly in influence,
and that novels, written only for
entertainment, are selling by the
millions and being written by the
thousands every year, is proof that
there is a hunger for entertainment
that has never yet been adequately

The Ilima Club at Makaweli is
an organization maintained by the
young people of the place and a
few outsiders under the patronage
of Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin. Its ob

they have succeeded to live up to
their object. Lately they have
studied a very modern play named

It is hard to say who played her
or his part the best, the play was
so well prepared aiul so well pre
sented, that for amateur perfor
mers, they all did wonderfully well
and the house was packed.
Much praise is due to Miss
Woodman for her thorough drill
ing of the performers, but unfor
tunely she had to leave the island
before the play was presented and
the finishing touches were by Mrs.
E. E. Malihun, to whom the com

That we have considerable theatri

That it is wonderful what we can
do, we try.
That a man should be temperate
in love affairs and not have
more than one girl at any one
That all a man can attend to, is
That Wjddow Macfarlane was evi
dently married to a large, fair
Scotchman and that her daugh

That Meg Macfarlane could not
make a living by spinning,
even if she could make h e r

That Belinda Treherne looked
stunning i u her assortment
of dresses and hats.
That Mr. Symperson was a poor
specimen of a father; off the

That Minnie Symperson was the
woman for whom the play
wright wrote the play.
That Parker did a poor job dust
ing and tidying the room. She
is young, however, so there is
hope for improvement.
That Belawney with the mysteri

men on the stage.
That Angus MacAllister was "a

mitigating circumstance was,
however, the fact that the girl

Taking it all in all it was clever
