I didn't know until the other
night that the American Beauty
rose is tied up tight with the anti
suffragists. It is their emblem. I
am told. And say , what, you will
for or agdnsl the anti-suffragists
you must at least say. this: That
they have' chosen about the best
flower there is. I believe that the
perfume of the American Beauty
rose is more eqtiisitethan anything
that grows, unless it is perhaps the
violet. And while I am on the
suffrage subject, I'll add a bit of
information about a suffragette.
One of them tells me that the word
.suffragette is about to be incor
porated in the dictionary. The
dictionary is quite waking up these

And now we are informed by a
lady of authority on such matters,
that men are no longer courtly.
She cites Lincoln a s an ideal type
of gentleman and names as the
final characteristics of good man
ners a friendly interest in those
about us, the kindly glance, the
outstretched hand, t h e lack of
formality, the natural expression
of a kindly heart. She claims that
this impulse is being crushed out
of our men because thev do not
tike the time. I believe this is
strictly true. But I think there-is
also another reason for it. There
are more shy people in the world
than we arr want to think, and
what appears sometimes as aloof
ness, is really nothing more than
timidity. Of course if we are
thinking entirely of t h e other
fellow, we will lose our timidity.
But in the process, it sometimes
misrepresents. Of one thing I dm
more certain daily( and' that is.
that most people mean well." I
am convinced that the average per

anything remotely resembling un
friendliness, J J jt
Just a few words concerning
what to me seems to be an over
estimate placed upon the value of
Hawaii's Young People. There are
those who fairly dote upon the
contents of this little pamphlet;
others who could not get along with
out it. With all due respects to the
publication in question, I cannot
for the very life of me, see why
such great importance should be
attached to its presence in a class
room. There seems to be a cer
tain number of familiar stories in
the paper that are used in every
grade until the children have be
come overstocked with them.

It is a sad commentary upon the
taste, the judgment, the enterprise
and the industry of the teacher if
there is not at least one appropriate
picture upon the walls of her
schoolroom. We fear there are a
few such rooms in the Territory.
We are sorry for the. teachers and
sorrier for the children.
i A certain teacher remarked to us
that she could not love a cross,
morose child. Another said, "de
liver me from a peevish, fretful
child." Another said, "well, I
just cannot love a sullen, pouting
child." And then the wise one
said: "Of course,, children are per
fectly wildubout teachers who are
cross, morose, peevish, fretful,
sullen or pouting." There was a
long silence after that last speech.

fully denied. Keep it' i n mind
and let it move vou to action.
The Retarded Pupils T
The retarded or backward child
should be removed from the regular
class. One of these children will
take as much of the time of the
teacher as four normal children,
while he may cause her as much dis
turbance and mental fatigue as all
the rest of'the school. These chil
dren must be taken out of the re
gular grades, grouped together
and given a special instructor who
has been trained t o understand
them and to deal with them in
accordance with their natures.
No school system of 500 chil-
.1-. fT t
urcn can anoru not . t o nave u
special class. There i may be re
cognized only twelve children and
it would be necessary to employ a
special teacher for these, but the
gain not only to them but to- the
normal child will more than repay
the seeming excess of expense.
The first objection that is
usually met with from superinten
dents and school boards is the diffi
culty of getting parents to accede
to the plan. This is wholly a
matter of procedure. If rightly
done, the parents will approve and
be gratified and delighted at the
results. Make the special class in
outward appearance as well as in
ward plan, a class where the chil
dren are happy because they suc
ceed, and you emphasize the pleas
ant side. ... .
Those children w ho are not pro
fiting by the : instruction of the
regular class are the ones for the
special class. And when we' can
not take all of the backward or
defectiv; children, the question
arises which ones shall be select
ed first?" - la .most places, the
worst cases are taken first. This
is the wise plan," '
..The question of whether the
parents approve of the class, or
whether the "children approve of it,
whether they call it the "fool"
class or not, whether the teacher
enjoy it or becomes discouraged.
is largely a question of what is
done in the special class. To
attempt to give these children the
same thing that is being given in i
the normal class, allowing that
they be given more time for doing
it, is a mistake. Thev cannot do
these things. They must be given
things that they can do. It has
been found that tht reading, writ

The world's champion slugger,
Jack Johnson has been in jail
again and some way ought to be
found for keeping him there. f
He has done more to injure the
decent negroes of America tha i all
other influences in this generation.
He excitesmore prejudice against
the people whose misfortune
it is to be of the same color as he
than Booker T. Washington's fine
service can counteract. He is a pub
lie muisance and he belongs in
jail. Kansan City Star.
Just so. But let it not be for
gotten that, the white people made
Jack Johnson what he is and .onie
of them ought to be-in jail along
with him. The white people asso
ciated with him and coddled him,
the white people furnished him
money with which to gratify his
vanity, a white man once fought
with him in the pugilist ic ring and
two white women married him.
The meat upon which this Cae
sar fed by which he grew so great
was furnished, by white j eople and
they are responsible for the injury
