Ject was fresh in my mind.
The eager, responsive faces that
clustered around me, begging for story
after story, was Inspiration enough
for me to give them the very best that
I had .It was amusing as well asl
pathetic to see the older boys some of
them as old as I was, listen with the
same child like simplicity and breath
less attention, as did the little ones
to those old classic legends that have
held the children of all ages by their
The Talesman of Discipline
All thru the school year I main
tained discipline, not by scolding or
punishing, but by the simple expedient
of a threat to withhold the evening i
story if they didn't behave.
Woe to the culprit who deprived
them of that story. He never did it
Transferred to the Juniors
As soon as Miss Alexander came, I
was transfered to the junior class of
about a dozen boys ranging from six
to ten years of age. They were such
dear little brownies. I loved every one
The main thing I taught them be
sides the inevitable reading and writ
ing and arithmetic, was Hawaiian
geography and I'm sure I got far
more out of it than they did, for they
taught me the pronunciation of the
Narrow Escape From Old Maid
I often wonder what the children
got from me that first year, not much
I fear. I'm sure I learned far more
than they did. But I enjoyed the ex
perience and had I not married, would
doubtless be an old maid "school
mam" this very moment.
Didn't Want the Typical School Mam
Miss Juliet used to say to me "Now,
my dear, you needn't feel badly at not
being a trained teacher. You are just
I what we want for this grade a young
girl with a wholesome bringing up, to
live in the school as a home and show
these children what a home can be.
We see enough of school teachers
that are trained they know it all and
are set in their ways and determined
to have their way. Don't ever do as
so many of them do talk everlasting
ly about your work and the children!
Be just a natural girl and you will
suit us exactly. We have enough of
the other kind." Her humorous
banter and her sympathetic under
standing and appreciation of a young
girl and her outlook on life, won me
to her and formed a bond which I
remember with much satisfaction and
The Shop and Garden Well Run
Mr. and Mrs. Askew and little Bob
bie arrived from Canada a few days
after the opening of school. Mr. As
kew proved a very good manual
teacher. He had been a blacksmith
and kept the boys busy at the forge a
good deal of the time. I bought a
spur that one o fthe boys made. Paid
i J2.75 for It. It was probably worth
50c. Mr. Askew was also a good
gardener and saw to it that the table
was provided with all the vegetables
that would grow, such as peas, corn,
potatoes, tomatoes, etc. The lawn
and grounds about the place were al
ways as trim and neat as could be in
fact it was a beautiful spot, with won
derful views of mountain, ocean and
waving cane fields to enjoy. It makes
my heart ache to think all those love
ly trees are cut down while the whole
place has reverted back to a jungle
of weeds and broken tree stumps. It
would have made such a beautiful
home for a family but its isolation
was against it.
We Lived Well
On the way down on the Australia
Mr. W. G. Smith, probably to tease
me told me as the boat sailed into
the Honolulu harbor, that I would
starve at Malumalu that the poor
teacher never got enough to eat. But
I had met Dr. Smith and Miss Emma
Smith and I knew better! As I gain
ed 20 lbs the first few months of my
stay at the school, you can see that
we didn't Buffer for lack of food.
.Mrs. Askew was natron aim was
supposed to get her board for the
work she did. She objected to the
work without special pay. Mrs
Henry Wilcox generously gave her
$25.00 a month. There wasn't much
to do, as the boys ate the inevitable
)oi and salmon and old Chiu, the Japa
nese cook catered to the teachers
most beautifully, but not wastefully,
A Friend at Court
Old Chiu the cook, was my special
friend. He was always making me
something special for dessert. I
couldn't eat Chinese orange pie, which
he made to perfection, so whenever
that was served I got something else
It was rather embarrasing and I re
monstrated with him but it never
did any good. He always grinned
