It is a noteworthy and most commendable
fact that the Civic Convention in Ililo was
a phetioniinal success on (he social as well us
the civic side, villi a super -abundant spirit of
good fellow-ship ami comaraderie in spile of the
entire ahsence of .John IJarleycorn. Returning
delegates vouch for the fact Ihat there whs no
hot tied inspiration anywhere in evidence and
apparently no one felt the need of it. The hos
pitality was us generous and as gracious, the
Inn iis spontaneous ami vivacious, (he fellow
ship as genial ami whole souled as ever in the
wet days ami (he attention to business was a
good deal more faithful.

Mokihani Club, which has been iu
strumeiital in inaugurating improved

V.'tllare of Children:
borne years ago, easting about for
the best way to inaus'iralc Welfare
Work, they came to the conclusion
that the best results could lie secured
through work with the children in the

Hesentid at First:
At first, sometimes the home people
:esented and lesisied the intrusion of

liplonircy was necessary. I recall one
use where they ostentatiously shut

winning ways, her kiia'.Iy spirit, and

Long before the expiration of the
