CLOWES IS PLEASED
Hilo, June 16. P rofessor
Clowes, of the Glenwood Agricul
tural Station, is enthusiastic over
the work planned for the coming
summer school for teachers, to be
held in Honolulu beginning July 6,
and he thinks the attendance from
this island will be very large. The
encouragement of this school, and
its special work in agriculture, is
the first development of the policies
of II . W. Kinney as superinten
dent of public instruction, the
plan being one supported by him
some years ago.
"We hope to have a very prac
tical Icourse," said Professor
Clowes, who has charge in a gen
eral way of the arrangements of the
lectures. "There will be demon
strations as well as lectures, and
such subjects as horticulture,
stock-raising, etc., will be hand
led by the proper men. Along time
ago Mr. Kinney discussed such
a course with me, but I did not
know until recently that he was
taking it up in such a practical
"It is a very important feature
of education, and has won its way
t.) the front in the great institu-
ions of our countiv. More and
more our thinking men are realiz
ng that unless we can get people
'back to the soil' our country is
d joined. In my student days, the
.igriciiltural department of a great
university was looked down upon.
Xow it takes high rank, and the
intelligent study of the problems
. t farming is becoming more popu
lar every year."

Finds Rare Shells
YOU FOXEY BILL
Attorney W. J. Sheldon has been
approached by some friends among
Republican party workers, asking
him to consider the advisability of
running for sheriff of the city and
county of Honolulu. - He admitted
this morning that with a certain
degree of encouragement the sug
gestion would be seriously consid
ered. Bill Jarrett Sheldon, once known
as "Eagle-eyed Bill," lays claim
to no little experience as a con
servator of the peace. He was a
deputy sheriff of Wailuku and of
Lahaina, Maui; Waianae, Oahu,
and Waimea, Kauai. He distin
guished himself tinder the monar
chy by the capture of the schooner
Henrietta with more than a ton of
opium. For the past five sessions
of the legislature, "Bill" was one
of the representatives of Kauai.
He has since removed to Honolulu.

a number of very rare shells which
he will take with him to Honolu

near Mana and at various places
in the mountains. Mr. Cooke, ac
companied by his wife and chil
dren arrived on Kauai on the 10th,
and will probably go back to Ho
nolulu Saturday night.

School Flan Blocked
The plan f o r estabHshinf a
school at the upper Kapaa home
steads is meeting with difficulties.
It appears that the native who had
bargained to turn mer three acres
of land for school ite purposes
has refused to si.iv with his agree
ment; and now declares that he will
give only one acre. The matter
has been referred to Superintend
ent Kinney, head of the Depart
ment, in the hope that some way
out of the difficulty may be found.
