K. C. HOPPER,
This standard periodical is out with
n very good number along tho familiar
lines of Interest that have made it a
valuablo asset for Hawaii.
Among tho literary articles there
is a wide range of interest rollecting
more or less the times and their
needs. An instructive article on the
Hawaiian Pineapple Industry and an
other on Hawaii's Agricultural
Strength, remind us of tho paramount
importance of our agricultural Inter
ests. "Hawaii in War Time," and "The
Red Cross In Hawaii," reflect the up
permost thought and theme of these
Of a historical naturo there are
"The Early Days of Kamehameha IV."
"Tho Passing of Kamehameha I."
"The Lying in State of Llliuokulani,"
and "Some Plantation Memories," the
latter by J. M. Lydgato.
Of a scientific nature there is Dr.
Taggar's address on Hawaiian Volcano
Observatories; and in a different line
an annotated list of Hawaiian algae.
In addition to these and other lit
erary articles there are the usual in
valuable statistical tables, etc., etc.
Altogether it is a very interesting and
DON'T MISS THIS SHOW.
Wo beg to call special attention to
the vaudeville show staged this week
at tho Tip Top and elsewhere on tho
Island. It gives every assurance of
being a really excellent show with
enough wit and humor in it to make
a fine start for tho new year, and with
enough genuine fun in it to keep you
cheerful and chuckling the whole year
through. Don't bo content to hear
about It afterwards; go and see it
THE PLEDGE TO THE FLAG.
It is probably not generally known
that the pledge to tho flag used in
tho Hag exercise by tho schools every
morning throughout tho length and
breadth of tho land was originated
by The Youth's Companion, and is
known as "The Youth's Companion
In 1SD1, as part of a campaign to
improve tho buildings and the grounds
of the public schools of the United
States, and to foster the spirit of
patriotism in tho schools, this pledge
was formulated by tho Youth's Com
panion editorial staff, and sent out to
all the schools throughout tho land.

wife of Hoy Matthews; aged 43
years and S months.
Mr. Clapper, Mr. Case and Alexan

SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS
TREE AT WAIMEA CHURCH.
Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock over
forty children of Wnlinoa and Keltaha
met nt tho old Foreign Church when
a beautiful Norfolk pine trco donated
by Madame Knudscn of Waiawa had
been decorated In true Xmas stylo by
somo of tho young ladies of tho
church; and when the children filed
into church they were dazzled by a
tree sparkling In sliver and snow and
sparkling with candles. Candies and
stockings full of other good things
were dunclng on every limb, a sight
that many of tho little tots had novcr
seen before. In front of the pulpit a
manger and a babe In a cradle added
a touch of realism to tho scone.
Master Valdmar Knudscn, dressed
as a shepherd boy, and the little girls
representing angels with gauze wings
made a pretty picture. Tho verses
of this beautiful hymn, "Once in Hoyal
David's City," were recited by various
members of tho class, and several
hymns and extracts from tho Psalms
were cleverly rendered. After the
exorcises tho presents woro distribu
ted by Miss Maud l'Orange, one of
tho teachers in tho Sunday School.
Much credit Is duo to Dr. and Mrs.
Carver for their success In building
up a largo class in a very short time.
TEACHERS MUST BE LOYAL.
Henry V. Kinney, Superintendent
of tho Department of Public Instruc
tion, has sent a letter to all tho school
teachers of the Islands requiring them
to afllrm their loyally to tho Covern
nicnt of the United States.
VOTE OF THANKS.
Tho Lihuo Hospital wishes to thank
the friends who so kindly ministered
to the inmates of the institution with
Christmas remembrances. They gave
very genuine pleasure to appreciative
recipients, which will not soon bo forgotten.
Our sympathies go out to all hands
on board the Kinau these days! There
is no suggestion of a holiday in sight
for them. To have to struggle week
in and week out with the rush and
strain of two trips, and then not even
have Christmas Day at home! It's a
question If life is worth living!

BEGIN THE NEW YEAR BY SIGN
ING THE FOOD PLEDGE.
A Plea for Food Conservation.
Tho year of our Lord, 191S, is upon
us. Never before, in tho history of
tho world, has a New Year dawned
upon such human misery as is now
to bo found in Europe. Over one mil
lion people have died of starvation
since tho war began, and tho same
fato now stares countless others in
tho faeo. Tho surplus supplies whicl
our country lias been ablo to send to
our Allies aro gone, and what wo car.
now send them Is merely what wo can
save from our own supply. Our Gov
ernment Is asking us to bo very caro-
ful with our food, to do away with
all waste, to two homo products, and
to substitute foods which aro plenty
for thoso which aro scarce. It asks
us to out down on our uso of wheat
moat, sugar and fats. If each person
will undertake to do his part, many
lives will bo saved.
In tho naino of humanity, il be
hooves us In a happier climo to reach
out a helping hand to our sui'li-rlng
fellow-men. Wo can do this, very
man, woman and child, most effort ivo
ly by conserving our food. Within a
fow days tho opportunity will bo offer
ed to overy afmily, and to all single
parsons, as well, to make or to renew
tho promise to support tho great vol
untary movoinent for Food Conserva
tion. Will you not mako it your
greatest Now Year's Resolution to
holp on. with your wholo heart and
soul, this movement, ono of tho gro.it
