THK HARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, APRIL. 29, 1911)
It. D. Isreal and E. A. Cheatham
of upper Waipouli section of Ka
paa Homesteads, have completed
harvesting operations, and are
now engaged in off-barring and
sub-soiling their ratoons. Both
parties are anxious to get hold of
a six inch left hand plow to aid
off-barring operations, as with
such an implement two off-barring
slices could be completed at one
time, using a Cleveland tractor to
supply the power. Mr Cheatham
has already tried using two right
hand plows for the same work,
but had little success due to the
one sided draught of the plows,
but he believes the cost of off-barring
could be greatly lessened by
using one right and one left hand
ed plow, straddling the cane row
with the tractor. Cheatham is
dragging two sub-soilers behind
a tractor in this manner at the
present time, and he is having
very good success.
Other homesteaders in the up
per Waipouli section are now liar
vesting cane from their home
steads, having secured the port
able track and part of the harvest
ing gang formerly employed by
Cheatham and Isreal. So far the
work is progressing favorably and
cane has been harvested from Carl
Jensens homestead and from II
a. Keiciieits place, Heicueit is
having difficulty in hauling the
cars out due to the steepness of
the slopeH on some parts of his

The Inter-Island S. S. N. Co. offers a
rate of one and one -half fare for the round
trip from all regular ports on Hawaii,
Maui, Kauai and Molokai; to Honolulu
effective June 6 to June 1 3; returning,
effective not later than June 1 6.
As to Kamehameha
The Kamehameha schools are the
outcome of the will of Bernlce Pauahi
Bishop, who died In 1884. The first
of the schools, the boys', was opened
In 1887, under the care of the late W.
B. Oleson. Somewhat later the prep
aratory and girls' schools were opened.
During all this time the schools have
filled a very large and very significant
place in the development ot the Ha
waiian people, and have turned out
most of the leaders, men and women,
who have filled places of trust and
responsibility among their people in
the various island communities.
The boys' school has an enrollment
ot 148, which is nearly the full capac
ity of this department, all but twenty
of whom were here on this occasion.
The schools as a whole have an ag
gregate expenditure of about $150,000
a year, which ensures a first-class
equipment, and the very best of In
struction. Because of the lack, however, of
suitable land for agriculture, that most
Important and practical department of
education has been neglected. Now,
a plan is being considered to move the
schools from their present site at
Kalihl, to Walalae, the lease of which
expires soon, where agriculture could
be given its proper place.
Sam Keliinoi of the fourth se
ries, Kapaa Homesteads is start
ing plowing on his tract. So far
only the old water courses and
ditches have been plowed as a pre
liminary operation. This is the
begining of cultivation of the 140
acres controlled by Keliinoi by
contract and which he expects to
plant chiefly to cane and pine-apples.

J. WALTER DOYLE,
Wolters Will Contested
The notorious Wolters will is taking
on new phases that promise to carry
it into court and stir up a lively liti
gation. Hermann Wolters of Kealla has filed
u contest complaining that the alleged
will of the late H. W. Wolters was ex
ecuted under threats, compulsion and
duress, and that at the time of making
Bald will the testator was Incompetent
to do so became a mania, dementian,
delusion and hallucination.
The contestant furthermore claims
that the provisions of the will by
which the bulk of the estate was to
go to Germany, render the will null
and void because at the time of mak
ing the will the United States was at
war with Germany.
All this means a long drawn fight
as it is a large estate.

A copy of the honor roll will also be

What Is It Anyway?
This Child Welfare that we sec so
much about these days what Is It
anyway? Well, It Is anything and
everything that makes tor strong,
sturdy, happy, promising children. It
means the betterment of children a
long all the lines ot child life, physical,
mental and moral, to the end that the
coming generation of men and women
may be better, happier and more effi
cient than the present better for
themselves, and better for the world
Just what forms this child welfare
work may take only time and exper
ience will demonstrate, the field is ho
large and our vision so limited; but
here are one or two lines that suggest
themselves, for a start:
The first thing always Is physical
well-being. Sick children are never
happy, nor good, nor Btudlous, nor
promising. So the first thing is to
keep them well; just as sturdy and
strong and full of snap and vicor as
every child ought to be. Th!o means
the proper food, properly cooked and
eaten at the proper time and enough
of It. Many of our children In the
schools are suffering from slow star
vation. It is an uphill job to teach
them anything; they can't think of
problems, they arc thinking of some
thing to eat all the time. A system
of weighing is being inaugurated in
the schools. Every child Is to be
weighed once a month, and a record
kept, and if that weight Isn't kept up
to standard, on the basis of age and
height, the reason must be sought,
and the remedy applied. One young
ster, in one of our schools Is 29 lbs.
below weight. He needs looking after
he Is evidently starving for some
reason or in some way, and if not
looked after, something is going to
happen to him; T. B. or the flu are
going to pick him off.
Many children have shocking bad
teeth; poor decaying stumps that keep
them miserable and cross, and anemic
the whole time. They are never going
to wake up and grow and be healthy,
sturdy, normal children till those teeth
are fixed. That is one endeavor of
Skin diseases run riot among Bchool
children like tops and marbles they
all get them; and while they itch and
scratch and burn, you can't expect
them to be model little saints in
school they're little demons. They
must be tended to, treated and re
lieved. Then they will take hold and
grow and learn.
Tuburculosis is abroad in the land
and takes its largest toll from the
children. The dread disease stalks
into the homes of the lower classes
and gets a fatal hold before Its pres
ence is ' recognized, and the whole
family, it may be, is decimated. An
Intelligent supervision of that family
would have spotted the disease at the
beginning, and checked it in the early
stages before it got a start. Child
welfare endeavors to look after such
families and save them to lives of
Children need play, good, healthy
vigorous, out door, rough and tumble
sport, that gathers up every energy
and keeps them going. "The Devil
finds some mischief still for idle hands
to do," but he can't get a word in edge
ways when games and sports are on.
Supervised play, with some one to
lead and guide the children in their
play and rustle up the necessary equip
ment for the same, this is one of the
aims of the child welfare.
This is just the barest outline sug
gestlon of Child welfare endeavor on
the physical side alone. There is the
mental and the moral. Of that
some other time.
