Kauai started out to have a record Christmas and succeeded
admirably. Good cheer was the program everywhere. Even the atro
cious weather did not mar the spirit of jollity which reigned supreme.
The parents of male students of Punabou acadamy will doubt
less admit that military training in the schools would' be a fine and
entirely proper thing for other sons than their own.

On Thursday evening last the
Koloa Sunday schools had their re
gular annual Christmas tree at the
church in that town. The outlying
Sunday Schools, Lawai mauka and
Lawai kai, in best bib and tucker,
and in spite of bad roads and
threatening weather conditions,
were there in force to unite with
tne parent school tor the joyous
occasion. There was a somewhat
extended program consisting of
singing, scripture recitation, table
aux, etc., showing a great deal of
careful preparation, and doing ere
dit to all concerned.
Following this program the tra
ditional Santa Claus, with all the
traditional accessories and in the
most enthusiastic and genial Santa
Claus style, waltzed up the aisle
and deyoted himself to the distri
button of the presents, in which
distribution every member of the
school was remembered.
The church was very effectively
decorated for the occasion and was
filled to overflowing by the child
ren and their friends. Mrs. Henry
Blake, the superintendent, and her
assistants deserve much credit " for
their faithful efforts to give happi
ness to the children.

It is a well known tact, home out by history, that some of the
best magistrates the islands have ever had were not lawyers at all
iliey were men of good, common sense and clear judgment and
those are the qualities wanted in the police courts.
