worthy endeavors the world around,
from Biblical times.

Arthur Wall, the director of the
Hibiscus Show, confidently predicts
that there will bo from 2000 to ,1000
varieties of the flower shown at that
time. He thinks that in beauty
and magnitude the show will excel

the growers of Oahu have promised
to make exhibits.
Among the exhibitors will be G.
P. Wilder, sometimes referred to as
tho 'Hibiscus King," Mrs. E. D.
Tenney, Mrs. It. T. Foster, Mrs. R.
T. King and Valentine Holt. All

and large, are to bo asked to have
