One of our teachers who was
evidently not altogether satisfied
with last year's Teachers' Con
vctition program, has written the
secretary a letter on the coming
convention, in which things are
said that are well worth remember
ing by the members of the asso
ciation. The couimuniuation i s
given publicity in that we consider
it a tinielv written article, being
E. B. Bridgewnter,
Secretary, Kauai Teachers' Association.
' I have received the program and ac
companying instructions from the eom
niittc on arrangements for the third an
nual Teachers convention winch is to
be-'held in Kleele hi January, and look
forwurd to the meetini? with hiinov iinti-
cipation when our tencherstwill have an
other opportunity to exchange ideas on
a subject ol such vital importance to the
welfare of our public f-chools. .
I hope, however, that the program
will allow of an Arrangement which will
permit everyoim to see everything that is
tnffbe dona. If I can Jie excused lor critii
cism, I would like to say that the two'
former ronventioirs were not very satis
factory to the majority of teachers, for
the simple reason that regardless of the
aim of the committe, nothing of a very
definite nature was obtained. This can
be especially saiihof the last meeting, the
fact being due mainly to three reasons,
viz: Owing to the backwardness of the
teachers in expressing tleniH.'lvea; the
inclination of another fb talk too much,
and the division bf.the program, beingso
divided in the afternoon as to prevent
the teachers from seeing all that went
on. The Idea qfdiaving all teachers of the
like grades observe demonstrations in
their respective grades, is, a most com
mendable one, but it seems that a ma
jority of the teachers would njuch prefer
to have all demonstrating work, regard
less of grades, carried on in the presence
of the whole assembly. Another matter,
which may be properly termed a 'deli
cate one, yet, nevertheless of no little
importance, is that unless demonstrations
are conducted by teachers entirely fami
liar with the English language, much of
the value of such demonstrations is lost.
I do not mean to be.personal Jn my re
marks, but considerable; comment was
heard, following the last meeting on this
very lamentable fact, and all must
admit that no device whatever may be
its merits, can appeal t; an observer if
the demonstrator of such device is incap
able of using proper English in her work.
All teachers are requested to hand jn
their written work done on a certain
day, designated by the supervisor. Of
course this may be all to the good, but
I do not believe I am done in the lelief
that it would have been a far letter test
of the real work being accomplished in
our schools, had this request "been for
any certain day's work, we will say. dur
ing the lirst term. This, it strikes me,
would be much more productive of satis
factory results than the method (being
employed in the present program. It will
also bo remembenMl that at the last meet
iiiL. it was liku prving loose a sticking
plaster to get the teachers to say any
thing, and some ot most) wno uu ma
nage to sav something, were plainly stage
frightened. Let irs all go to the meeting
with something to say, fand say it. It is
much better to remain in our class room
than to attend the meeting and remain
silenfuntil all is over and then tell others
.what w e wanted to iay, and criticise
those who have had the courage 4o speak
their convictions. The meeting is intend
ed as an opportunity to benefit tho teach
er, and we should all unite in carrying
out a program which will work for the
greatest amount of good for the greatest
number of the stall. ,

The singing of Mrs Henry Blake
was the chief feature 6f the eve
ning. She sang the principal part
in "The Babes in tlleWoods. "A
raah Wanna" and "Ka Lei o Kai-
ulaui." In each of these pieces she
acquitted herself wort h y of a
trained singer and, as she repeated
the chorus in the last song, a hala
wreath entwined with maile was
thrown around her neck in appre
ciation of her talent.
The rendition of "Ka Pua o Ka
Hei, by a trio composed of Mrs
Rachel Moke, Mrs. v Esther Medei-
ros. and Mrs. Sam Kalua deserves
specia1 mention. When 'the curtain
was raised the singers were seen
amidst maile vines and ferns string
ing blossoms of "hei or papaia."
The scene, typical of some of our
mountain sceneries, was natural,
and beautiful. The siuging which
was soft and sweet brought out
rn'"Araah Wanna," Miss E.
K. Kalawe as "Barney" the Irish
Wooer, played her part appreciably
well and Miss Jane Miller was
beautiful as "Araah Wanna, the
Queen of the Fairies. Thev both
sang well and justly merited the
applause they rec ived.
In the "Babes in the Woods"
the synpathy of the audience was
aroused as Misses Eleanor and Em
ma Blake, the orphans were seen
wandering in the woods until ex
hausted, they fell asleep and were
left there by their treacherous un

property, a prey for.the wild beasts
All the other parts were wolj
renderey and the concert was
brought to a fitting close with the
singing of "Hawaii Ponoi".'ttnd
the "Star Spangle t Banner" ;in
which the auuience heartily joined.
After the concert the floor 'wag
cleared for dancing. The music
was furnished by Fiank Wai pa's
