of common sense, executive, and dis

I skill and experience, set the manual

left a very salutary mark on the boys
High Water Level
About this time Miss Bruce was
principal, nnd the school was at Hf
high water level.
Short Terms of Service
Following Mr. Broadbent, In the fal!
of 1805 Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey, a young
couple from the East, came, he tc
take charge of the shops and the
fields, and she to act as matron. They
remained one year, and then went
Into the service of the public schools.
Miss Alexander, who had served ac
ceptably some time at Kawaiahao, fol
lowed Miss Bruce, with Mr. and Mrs.
Askew as manual and matron assist
ants, and Miss Elwell as Junior teacli
er. And when Miss Alexander left
in 1 Sf7 the Askews took charge with
Miss Ward as assistant.
The school was closed In July lkftS
Aim and Purpose of School
Th" purpose of the school was to
give a combined agricultural manual
academic education, an ambitious
and somewhat difficult undertaking
with the means and material at hand
First thing in the morning it was field
and garden work from 6 to 7 o'clock.
From 9 o'clock till noon, it was school,
and in the afternoon it was shop work
for the older boys, and garden or
house work for the smaller ones. And
In the evening there was study hour
supervised by one of the teachers.
The school curriculum was an ambl
tious one, judging from the closing day
program for the first, year, which in
cludes algobra, astronomy, physiology,
and technology. Inquiry from some
of the old students reveals the fact
that it was only the names of the
things that were hard, that the things
themselves wore very easy, and the
boys liked them. Later these recon
dite subjects were dropped, and the
time was given to the fundamentals
that they very much needed.
' The shop work included printing.
They had one newspaper press, which
Is still doing good work at Kapaia
where it is printing the Japanese pa
per every week. Presumably they
didn't have much use for this press
but they did make considerable use of
the small job press, and Judging by
the samples that come down to us they
did very good work. The first tele
phone card of the Kauai Telephone
Co. was printed by them, and was
probably the first pay job that they
did. It has a double interest histori
cally. Made Spanish Spurs
The printing soon fell into the back
ground, carpentry and blacksmithing
teemed to give promise of much
greater practical usefulness. In the
latter art, if I remember correctly, the
goal of all endeavors was to make a
line large pair of jingling Spanish
spurs. Not many of them however
ever reached that goal.
Always Hungry but Plenty to Eat
The daily bill of fare aimed to be
in iinly but not exclusively Hawaiian,
there was always a substantial basis
of poi, which came from Koloa, reg
ularly twice a week. This was help
ed out with rice, salt salmon, and oc
casionally meat, some bread and fruit,
nf which latter article there was a
irood supply on the place. .One of the
products of the place was real bread
fruit pol, such as is now seldom seen.
At the time there were complaints
about the food, and the boys carried
home some tales of being always hun
gry; but pshaw, isn't a boy always
hungry anyway whatever you give
him! Looking back some of these
boys admit now that they always had
good food and plenty of ft.
Saturday Half Holiday
Saturday was. clean up day; the
whole forenoon was devoted to that,
while the ufternoon was a holiday, and ,
they wey free to go for a swim or a
hike, or down to Nawiliwili to see the
steamer off, or to visit their friends,
if they had tiny near at hand.
The Unwelcome Job of the Week
Sunday morning they marched to
church and Sunday school, in the care
of one of the teachers, generally the j
shop or garden man, who marched
with them. This was the most un-j
welcome job of the whole week, the
road was long and hot and dusty, and
i he forenoon dragged along very slow
ly. Uev Jack Niau was the minister,1
they had nothing against him per-.
I Konally, but they did wish that he
wouldn't undertake to tell them all

tlu-re were compensations, they bad
the whole afternoon to eat cocoanuts
