Tonight is Christmas Eve, a
time when memory takes a hike
back to that old familiar poem
"T'was the night Before
Christmas," where, back in the
memory sells of the older genera
tions, lie dormant, memories of
evenings spent at hresides where
cheer tin mimes burst forth from
the precious "yule log," and
mother and father divided the
tune until you should seek your
bed, with intensely interesting
Christmas stories. Yes, there,
too, were hickory nuts, apples,
pop -corn balls, and such candy
marbles! Asa night-cap, that
jug of indescribable cider was sure
also to produce an everlasting impression-

Being a natural born hustler,
he could not sit idly by, so as a
pass-time he engaged in the fish

old Santa Clatts through the

time, it is to wonder whether or
not the children get as much real
pleasure out of Christmas as in
olden times. However, as the old
saying, ' 'what we don't know wont
hurt us," the only solution of the
problem is to hope so at any rate.

netted nearly $40.00. This money
went to the girls themselves and
gave them a taste of the joy of
labor and its reward. More than
250 articles were made and every
one was sold and orders were
taken tor 40 more. Only 12
hours of teaching in school were
given to the work, the rest being
done at home under the direction
of the teacher. The great en

Xmas In Lihue School
Christmas exercises were held at
the Lihue School on Friday the
twentieth. The pupils gathered
around the flag pole, each depart
ment giving songs and recitations
in which Santa Clans was the
predominant note. At the close of
the exercises, the Victor played a
Christmas Carol, the different
national airs and then a inarch, to
which the children kept step until
they reached their rooms, where
Santa Claus was actually on hand
with stockings and bags filled with
candies nuts and other good things.
Each teacher gave her rooms a
very happy surprise. In the upper
rooms, booklets and cards accom
panied the sweetmeats. In some
of the rooms, the children made
pretty calendars, which they took
to their own homes. The boards
were beautifully decorated with
Santa Claus pictures, those in the
higher grades being done by the

service since time almost beyond
the ken of man is to be dismantled

practical work can be profitably
undertaken in the school. The
girls earned from 15 cents to $5.30
each, and since the sale small
account books have been made,

account not only of what she
earns but ot win she spends.
It is interesting t note that out
of 30 gills who worked for the
sale all but one either gave her
earnings to her parents or put it
in a little bank. The one excep
tion explained that she took five
cents to treat, herself to "prunes."

joyed a prosperous holiday trade.

Saturday when the last count in the "popular teachers' " contest clos

subscriptions, but those of the little winner proyedmore diligent as the
finals indicate. Miss Marie Anderson, one of the many popular Ha
