was in session at Waimea last
week, culminating in a grand Sun
day school exhibition, at Waimea
Hall on Sunday. This was one
of the largest affairs of its kind in
recent years, truck loads of partic

ported that on the whole, the Li
hue contingent did the best, though
it was hard to draw the line, where
all did so well.
A noticeable feature of the asso

service for Rev. Win. B. Oleson,
the recently deceased secretary of
the Hawaiian Board, whose mem

German positions which thev still occupied. Attacks along the rail

losses. Lieutenant Garros, noted French aviator , is a prisoner of the

The English rushed the German positions on the heights south
west of Ypros and were repulsed.

quarters sufficiently prove,"
