Life at Malumalu
In the Old Days
(Continued from page 2)
lived In California and spent days
traveling over the mountainous roads.
1 never felt comfortable on them nor
got used to them. Hy the time we
reached the school nnd I had been
told that the horse had some Arabian
blood in her veins, I was quite ready
to believe it.
Miss Malone was acting as "tem
porary principal, awaiting the advent
of Miss Alexander from the States in
November. She was most kind to
me and a dear lady and loyal friend
First Day on Duty
School had not begun, but many of
the boys were already there ami as
soon as I had got nicely settled in
my room., my first duty was to see
thntthc corridor on the third ltoor
was nicely washed. One of the older
boys was assigned to me and together
we went up the stairs and I started
him to work with water and Vloth to
see what impression could be made on
the red dirt that had accumulated In
great quantities during the vacation
He soon informed me he had finish
edbut when I inspected it I was far
from satisfied, a series of muddy
circles were only too evident and 1
asked him to try it again. A second
washing didn't improve it much and
so summoning my sweetest smile and
most tactful manner, 1 begged him to
try it once once so that Miss Malone
would say our corridor was the clean
est. The boy was as big as I was, so
I had to handle him with a little more
tact than if he had been a small boy.
Charm of the Valley
That very first afternoon. Carl On-
tai and several of the other hoys,
asked me if I wouldn't like to go with
them to the school valley. I will
never forget how beautiful the little
valley was, with its pretty winding
rath that led to the brook murmuring
over the mossy rocks. Beautiful
breadfruit trees as well as mangoes
cocoanuts. alligator pears, . papaias
bananas were there in flourishing
abundance. Ginger blossoms and
fern brackens nodded along the shady
All these things were new to me
and continued to be a never ending
source of tropical beauty and rest-
fulness to me while at the school
Nearly every day I wandered down
the valley enjoying it more each day
Introduced to Hawaiian Fruits
One of the boys shinned up a cocoa-
nut tree after fruit. I breathed
sigh of relief when he reached ground
The boys dashed the nuts against a
huge stone to bruise the outside husk
which they then pulled off with their
teeth, and after cracking the top off
the inside shell, offered mo my first
drink of cocoanut milk and initiated
me into the mysteries of eating the
soft inside cream with a bit of the
shell for a spoon. They also got a
papaia for me which I liked at once
and then a mango, which I barely
tasted, not caring for the turpentine
flavor at that time, and finally ended
up by bringing an alligatoor pear,
But I couldn't be tempted, as 1 had
already tried one in Honolulu.
It brought back too vividly the days
of childhood, when my mother made
Mrs. Clara Smith and Emma Blake
were at the school, Mrs. Smith to
teach the little ones and Emma Blake
as matron for a few days.
I Took the Older Boys
Miss Malone and Miss Juliette Smith
had had some kind of a falling out
and Miss Malone departed. Miss Smith
asked me to take the older boys in
class work until Miss Alexander's ar
rival, which I did. I found it very
easy to teach them, as they wero hav
ing the same studies that I had had
a few years before and I think a be
ginner can always do better with the
older children as there isn't so much
discipline to reckon with. The boys
were very much surprised that I
could solve all the hard problems in
the back of the old Smith and Robin
son arithmetic. Let me tell you a
secret I don't believe I could now.
The Problem of the Names
The first thing 1 did, was to try
and master their names, Kilauea
Kanahele, Waipulani, Kaaloa, Ahia,
etc. Having studied Latin if wasn't
so hard, as I knew how the vowels
should be sounded. I made a compact
with them that fi rst day that if they
would teach me the proper pronuncia
tion of their names and the names of
places on Kauai and would correct me
everytima I mispronounced a name, I
in turn, would tell them all the an
cient Greek and Roman myths that I
knew in the evenings just before
dinner and after dinner till study
The Charm of Ancient Myths
As I had particularly enjoyed
myths as a child and had had the
subject "Ancient Mythology" as a
high school graduation theme, the sub-
