E. 13. Bridgewater,
K. C. Hopper,
There is a generation, whose teelh
ate as swords, and their jau teelh as
knhes, to devour the poor from off the
earth, and the needy from among
men. Prov. 30-14.
Some reforms have been in
augurated the past year,, but peo
ple still stick to the x-ecrable habit
of writing it Xmas.
Beginning with January 1st.
913, the rate for display adver
tisements in The Gapdkn Island
will be 75 cents an inch per month
single columm. This increase in
rates is justified, owing to the
ncrease in the price of paper, and
our increased circulation.
The Garden Island has no peer
n the advertising field in the Terri
tory as is evidenced by the amount
of high-class advertising appear-
ng in its columns. The proof of
pudding is tasting" is never more
exemplified than in the fact that
successful business firms continue
to exploit their wares in a live ad
vertising medium, year i n and
year out. This is just what the
business firms of Honolulu and
Kauai are doing, in keeping their
ads before the public in an adver
tising medium which brings re-
u 1 t s. The Garden Island
carries more advertising than any
six page paper west ot tne juis
sippi River and there's a reason
it delivers the goods.
Pastor Russel o f Brooklyn
offers The Garden Island free
salvation in plate form, but we
don't believe things are worth
much that you don't have to pay
tor and hence tne plate sermons
are declined with thanks.
Not long ago The Garden Is
land printed a notice stating that
if a subscriber failed to get his
papwT he should notify this office
And the very next diy a cheerful
idiot poked his head in at the door
and asked us how the subscriber
could see the notice if he didn't
get the paper.
The Girl from Home" a story
of Honolulu, by Isobel Strong,
is just of the press, and
a more fascinating book from
"The arrival" to "Aloha oe
would be difficult to find. The
author has so artistically woven
in the everyday life as the malihini
sees it, that every chapter is
The public schools ot Kauai
closed the fall term last Friday,
most ot tiiem Having a tew more
or less Christmas exercises. Quite
a number of our teachers have
taken advantage of the vacation
and gone to Honolulu. The first
term has been a successful one
under the prevailing conditions,
the teachers being greatly handi
capped from the beginning on ac
count of lack of text books and
course of study.
Inspector Gibson reported edu
cational matters in a very pro
mising way on the Garden Island
which reflects credit upon t h
teaching staff and the untiring
efforts of our supervising principal
and Commissioner W. H. Rice, in
doing their utmost to keep Kauai's
public schools up to standard.
What is finer than the following
from Van Dyke? "I want the
books that help me out of the
vacancy and despair of a frivolous
mind, out of the tangle and con
fusion of a society that is buried
in bric-a-brac, out of the meanness
of unfeeling mockery and t h
heaviness of incessant mirth, into
a loftier and serener region,
where, through the clear air o
serious thoughts, I can learn to
look soberly and bravely upon the
mingled misery and splendour of
human existence, and then go
down with cheerful courage t o
play a man's part in the life which
Christ has forever ennobled b
his divine presence.''
It should be remembered that
we help or hinder. every one with
whom we come in contact. There
are times, doubtless, when we
would gladly be without influence
one way or tne otner, Dtit it can
not ue so. we eitner lilt up or
cast down, push forward or hold
back, assist or retard, give the
smile of helpfulness or the frown
of discouragement. A n earnest
desire and constant effort should
be not to hinder but to lift up
ever. We should remember that
as we effect others so are we also
effected. If we discourage others
so, too, do we become discouraged
If we hearten others we also take
on new courage. If it be true, as
some one has said, that "I am a
part of everything that I have
met," the reverse must also be
true that everything I have must
have taken something from me.
We should see to it that only good
goes out from us; that our contact
with others benefits them; that
our influence is helpful.
Some School Notes
Everv school room should be
supplied with a few good pictures
If this is not the case, the teacher
is at fault.
Make the school interesting.
home like and attractive, and I he
pupils will be glad to attend.
Wooilbrutge N . ferns, a
democratic school teacher, w a s
elected governor of the stale of
Michigan and Woodrow Wilson,
a democratic school teacher, was
elected president o f the United
The teacher should constantly
and persistently strive after definite
and more thoroughly organized
andaccurately classified knowledge.
Complete mastery comes only to
those who have such equipment
The power to secure and hold
the attention of pupils may be
gift but it is certainly susceptible
of cultivation and development
It can also be acquired by study,
observation and practice. It can
be found in and out of books. The
thinking teacher is the growing
teacher. The child and how to
interest and stimulate and hold
him is a subject that requires care
ful and constant thought.
How many teachers are making
good use of the libraries in their
schools? It is one thing to get
good books into the school libraries
it is quite another to get the
pupils to use them to the best ad
vantage. The teacher must ac
quaint herself with the contents of
the books in order to instruct her
pupils how to get the most and
best out of them.
Many teachers seem to be un
aware o f the fact that the ap
pearance of the school grounds is
an indication ot their enterprise or
of the lack of jt. No tidy teacher
will be willing to teach in untidy
surroundings. If the school
grounds lack attention the teacher
should see to it that the needed at
tention is given. If the school
room is not inviting the teacher
should make it so. The teacher
who confines her efforts to the
class room only is performing a
part but not all of her duty.
