The Hawaiian Forester often
contains some article of general
interest which deserves a larger
circulation. Such an article is
published in the last issue by R.
I. Lillie ma the growing of fliwers.
Mr. Lillie is n uractical connois
seur in flower growing of long ex
perience and much success, lie
is said to have one of the gardens
He emphasizes four essentials:
Scusohk$ Heeds should be sown
between November and June.
Things sown out of season, if they
grow at all, make a spindling,
stunted growth. Don't be guided
by the season directions given in
the seed catalogues. These are
for the Mainland, where, of
course, the seasons are entirely
Seeds: It is of the utmost im
portance to get fresh seeds. Most
seeds have a very limited period
of vitality, aud if kept beyoud
that, simply will not grow. For
this reason it is better to order
direct from the seedmen so that
you may be assured of good. seed.
Actual experiment gave the fol
lowing results: seeds sown im
mediately on arrival gave a 90
growth ; after a delay of three
weeks, 50, and two weeks later
still only 10.
Sowing: The plants for trans
planting are best started in shal
low boxes, protected from ants.
Protection from ants is very im
portant as they are apt to dig up
every last one of the little seeds
and carry them off. The boxes
should be about four inches deep
with holes in the bottom for
drainage. They should be filled
with finely sifted soil composed
of one half of well washed sand
hnd one half leaf mould well mix
ed. As a means of protection it
is well to wet down thoroughly
with boiling water to kill ants
and other pests. Sprinkle the
seeds on the smooth surface, then
cover very lightly with finely
sifted soil. The greatest mistake
is to cover the seeds too deeply.
A safe rule is not more than five
times the diameter of the seeds.
Very fine seeds may be sown on
thin tissue paper spread on the
ground, and then protected by
another sheet on top, over which
a light layer of fine soil is sifted
The thin film of paper protects
the seeds while they are gerniin
ating, and they readily push
Care should be taken not to
disturb the germinating seeds by
rough watering. A fine spray
should be given them a sort of
mist rather than a sprinkle or
even a rain. The plants should
be transplanted when about two
inches high but this, of course
depends on circumstances.
Soil: To have a good garden
you must dig and turn over the
soil to the depth of at least two
feet. Every Fall this service
should be rendered to secure good
results. And every Fall the gard
en should be fertilized, well rot
ted born manure being the best
thing for the purpose. Commer
cial fertilizers should be used
sparingly, and with discretion.
Don't trust it to your yard man.
Transplanting should be done
in the late afternoon so that the
tender plants may get used to
their new surroundings in 'the
cool of the night. Always water
as you plant. And watering
should mean a rood watering
that will soak down to the roots,
I not the superficial, perfunctory
' sprinkling that only moistens the

ant because they are crossroads of
ateamers across the Pacific Ocean.
There are twelve islands In the Pa
cific Ocean called the Hawaiian Is
lands. Eight of these islands are inhabited
and we are living on the oldest and
nicest island called Kauai.
Friday, the fourth grade children
went to Waimea on a geographical ex
cursion to see all places and all the
things that are on Kauai.
As I did not visit Oahu I think Kauai
is the nicest island of the group and is
the oldest. It is at the northeastern
end of the main group and is fourth
in size of the group. The coast of
Kauai is very regular but It is nicer
than Oahu because of the valleys and
of the mountains which are situated
in the central part of Kauai and many
ridges branch out from the mountain
called Waialeale mountain.
After we passed Wailua we came to
Hanamaulu and all the way to Waimea
I saw cane fields. After we passed
Hanamaulu we came to Kapaia and I
saw the valley and learned how valleys
are formed. j
After we passed Kalaheo we came to j
Eleele. Here we ate lunch and saw (
the Hanapepe valley and I was very ,
much pleased because the valley was J
so deep. j
Then we went to Waimea. On our
way back we saw the landings and I
was very much pleased to see the
Nawiliwili Landing because it was the
or under it either!
And the rim is wide enough for a comfortable set !
The edge is .nearer the boor so the kiddies can climb in' anil
out of it easily without danger of falling.
It's built into the floor and walls. No dirt or moisture can
get behind or underneath it.

TEACHERS ON FIRST HIKE
The Teachers' Association, Mana

last Saturday, when' they went to Han

Makaweli, three from Eleele, with Mr.
Creevey as guide, left Eleele school in
autos about 8 o'clock. The cars took '
them down as far as the ditch. From
there they hiked, reathing the falls be
fore eleven. After a good rest and
lunch, half of the party climbed to the
crest of the mountain back of the falls, j
