THE H1LQ COtiVEIi
THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY. APRIL 4, 1916
In Tub Circuit Court, Fifth
Circuit, Territory of
July A. D. Term.
TERRITORY OF HAWAII, by
The Kohala Midget contains the
following interesting information
concerning plans for the forthcom
injr civic convention, to be held in
All the preliminary steps have
been taken in connection with the
Fifth Civic Convention which is
to be held in Ililo, on Sept. 21
25, and a committee, consisting of
the board of trustees of the Hilo
Board of Trade, headed by Presi
dent William McKay, has charge
of all the arrangements. Within
a short time communications will
be sent to all the civic organiza
tions of the islands and invitations
will be extended to the members
of them to attend the convention.
Tkere will be no limit to the num
ber of delegates from each organi
zation; and as many as can manage
to come will be warmly welcomed.
Subjects for consideration at the
convention, will betaken up soon,
and it is planned to have these of
such general interest that the very
thought that they are to be dis
cussed will result in a large atten
dance of delegates.
In view of the 1917 session of
the legislature, the convention will
take up many matters that should
influence the legislature and lead
to much good being accomplished.
As the Second Hawaii County
Fair will be held at the same time
as the convention, all the visitors
and delegates will have an oppor
tunitv of seeing what our island
can do in the way of raising agri
cultural products, live stock and
many other things. The impor
tance of the Fair is fully realized
by everyone and the exhibits will
be much larger than last year. It
is evident, from the inquiries made,
that there will be exhibits from
eveiv section of the island and, if
the interest is sustained and the
promises of exhibits fulfilled, it
may be decided that the Hilo Ar
mory wi'l be too small for the Fair
and the Kuhio Bay Wharf may be
secured for the big exhibition.
In the way of entertainment
there will be much to please the
delegates, and excursions to the
Hamakua, Volcano and Puna dis
tricts will be part of the seheme.
A big banquet and a grand ball
will also figure in the entertain
ment line and there will also be
many other functions. Hawaii is
out to have the biggest and best
convention so far held in' the is
lands. Mrs. J. H. Bole, of Eleele, will
return home tomorrow after a visit
ot several weeks in Honolulu.

Begin Your Web
Once upon a time, which is the proper way for
all stories to begin, there was a poor boy who was a
shut-in. At this stage of story telling, the children
usually rise up to remark, ' Is it a true story?" And
so I will say right here, "Yes, this is a true story.
And the bov, now a man, is living todav.
This boy's home was practically in the slums.
His parents were not shiftless r illiterate, but they
were very poor, and they lived in two rooms meagerlv
furnished. The outlook from the window where he
nt was nrincioally of brick walls.
A settlement worker came along who interested the owner of the
property in the boy and a little bay window was built from which he
could get a more extended view. This view included a back yard in
which, as spring came on, growing things sprang up, and it became
nd. to the bov's eves, beautiful. He had seen very few flow-
pr and olants and knew nothing about them, and his interest and
curiosity were keen and unbounded. The owner of the back yard
heard of it and sent him some flowers. It was only a slum back yard
and its products did not rival a Fifth Avenue florist's. But to the
hnv thev were a revelation . Others heard of his delight and more
flrers came and some plants in tin cans, and then some books. He
tv.cr.in to studv. to experiment, and today that bov is a famous
professor in a college and doing work that is second only to Burbank's
in the plant world.
There is an old saving of the Greeks. The gods bring threads to
a web begun." . .
Tt i true, isn't it? Our part is to begin the web.
The bov becan his when he commenced studying those plants in
that back yard and asking questions about them and wanting to know
about plant life. His desires reached out as the tendrills of the vines
v .itched did for support; and those outgoing desires brought the
. vnnnlv thev craved. Naturally his queries aroused interest. Natural
l tieiuhbois brought to him such blossoms and plants as they could
get, and naturally they would get them when thev told the purpose
for which the flowers were wanted. Who would refuse a blossom or
n lin to a shut in ? The scrub woman who liyed on the flooi below
t,tA the woman where she scrubbed, and the woman made a slip
from the geranium in her window and sent it The laundress next
Hr.nr told the tale to her mistress and another plant came. And so the
It was all simple and natural. This progress is always simple
and natural, for it is part of the law of the universe; and these laws
when we understand them work witnout nircn. Ana no matter wnat
ih vou mav want to start, the laws will woric as enectiveiy tor you
as it did for this boy.
These old savings that have come from the life experience of
people usually have hidden in them some great fundamental truth
And this old Greek saving has a message of cheer and courage for us
Our cart is to begin the web, to start to do that thing that some
twiner ;thin us is calling us to do. The threads to carry it on will
come. . .
Our real failure is in not beginning, in letting tear or doubt or
,iie,ct liold us back. That is where the fault lies in most cases. We
f,ir that the threads will not come, not realizing that in the very im
nulse to do is the promise of fulfillment. Demand implies supply. In
hp creative energies of the universe, the two are inseparable.
So let us hearten ourselves for some work we mav want to do by
this actual experience of this poor shut-in whose outlook seemingly
could not be more hopeless, or uy mis on oi wisaom irom me oreeKs,
or to come to nearer times, the saying of One who proved what He
preached, "Launch out into the deep."
