1'ITTSItUltOII 1IHI, IN HAWAII.
Teacher Mimt (llvo l)emoiitrnUons
In Ktlquvttn and ClrnnllncM
Kohnla, Hawaii, Feb. 7. Five
months have passed since I landed
on the island of Hawaii to take up
my duties as principal of the Ko
hnla girls' seminary.
I Teaching here is altogether dif
J ferent from teaching in the States,
I but is none the less interesting on
1 that account. The girls are 60 in
number aud range in age from six
to 18. Very few of them are pure
' Hawaiian, but like the instructor
, of native weaving, who is 8-i(
Chinese, 5-16 Tahitian, 2-16 Eng
jlish aud 1-1G Hawaiian.
I All.the lessons are in English.
The girls learn quickly but it is a
difficult matter to teach them the
pure English, there being too much
"pidgin English" spoken on the
islands. Once a week I give a lec
ture and natives. Once a week I
".ive a lecture on etiquette, some
what different from what would be
given to young women at home. I
emphasize the use of a handker
chief; necessity of having sheets on
our beds; the Impropriety of eating
everything with the fingers and a
thousand other thing's. I never
lack for subjects.
The external condition of heads
gives mc as much trouble as the in
ternal depopulating in the one
case and cramming in the other. I J
have regularly appointed examina
tions for both and usually find less
delinquency in the internal than the 4
exteual conditions. Every Friday
we have what is called ,,The Neat
ing Hour," when one of the teach
ers, wno is a native Hawaiian, ex
amines every head, and if any are
dtscovered to be too prolific, pun
ishment is administered. A mere
lecture or rebuke has no effect upon
these girls, hut work has a very re
forming influence; so for all sorts
of misdemeanors they arc made to
scrub verandas, weed gardens, wash
windows and mend clothes, etc.
Another punishment that is con
sidered a great hardship is the de
nial of sugar cane of which they
are very fond. You may imagine
how they look walking around
sucking the end of a long stout cane

KNGMSII AS SHR IS TAUGHT.
As principal of this institution it
is my duty to read all letters receiv
ed and sent by the girls, and from
these letters, conversation aud
school exercises J have culled the
following choice remarks:
In reading class the following
sentence: "Joseph was the right
arm af Pharaoh."
Teacher (thinking she would
draw out an explanation of the
figure of speech) What is the most
important thing we have ' about
"Eva, did you hit Kahauuani?"
"No, I had my fist up like this
aud she ran into it'."
"John, I want you to write me
nice letters, because our principal
doesn't waul to see a letter that is
all out of sight. She teach us how
to use nice English."
Girl (in a most disgusted tone,
after being corrected the third
time Oh, the cut of my brain!
Girl (describing a trip to the sea
beach) Laulani had nose bleed
because she swallowed the sea.
"We just listen for nothing to

tient and nice she teach us'

KAINl'AM. ON HAWAII.
Hawaii, the gnrdcu of the Pacific,
is a land of warmth but not a land
of sunshine. Ilelng located on the
windward side of the island close to
the sea and mountains, there is al
most a continuous rainfall. In one
place there has been 22 feet in the
last nine months, which is enough
to float one of our warships. Imag
ine such a condition of dampness
that even one's shoes arc covered
with a green mold. Gloves have
to be kept in a baking powder can
on the back of the kitchen range,
that being the only stove or heat
ing place in the house. The ef
fects of the coal strike are not felt
in Hawaii, for fuel is never needed
except for cooking aud laundering.
With all the rain there is never
any thunder and lightning. The
moonlight nights are most won
drously brilliant. Twice I have seen
lunar rainbows at 100 clock at
night that were as vivid in coloring
as those seen at home in broad day
light. The southern cross is also
visible. There is no twilight, how
ever, and it is always quite dark at
There have beeu four hard earth
quakes aud numerous slight ones
since September. One wouid sup
pose that the ground was so soaked
that it could not quake, but such is
not the case.
SHHI.TUKING THU HOKSKS.
We have three horses at the
seminary and a Chinaman to care
for them. There has never been
any stable, the horses always being
kept iu the pasture lot. It seemed
cruel to have the poor animals ex
posed to all these rains; so Ah Ye
was instructed to convert an old
summer house that was on the pre
mises into a stable. It was a most
weird looking structure when com
pleted, but the girls planted vines
all around it aud in a few weeks it
was expected to be a dream of
The horses, not being accustomed
to being housed, required great
force and persuasion 'to be induced
to enter, but were finally establish
ed in their different stalls, which
were merely separated by a few
boards. All went well until the
middle of the night, when every
one in the seminary was aroused
by the most unearthly noise. I
had heard of the noise made by
dying horses on a battlefield, and it
must be indeed dreadful, if any
worse than the squeals of those
three horses as they kicked and bit
each other in their frantic efforts to
get out of that stable. They kick
ed the roof all off aud the sides clean
out, and finally made their escape,
but so lamed and wounded that for
days we were uuable to use them,
and one of them had to be treated
by a veterinary surgeon.
I have lost all sympathy for those
horses, and now let them shiver in
the rain with no qualms of con
science on my part. The stable
cannot be rebuilt every day and
as for vines, it would take a Jonas'
gourd to cover it.
NKWS IN HAWAII.
Mail day comes but once a week
and is a glad and happy time. Ha
waii is the largest of the croup of
Islands to which it gives its name.
It is 200 miles from Oahu, on which
is Honolulu. Wireless telegraphy
is used between the two islands.
Since the completion of the cable
we can read the world's news in
the Honolulu papers on Wednesday
when it is only two days old; other
days we have no mail.
A telephone in the house here
costs $72 a year, but everybody has
one. Central calls up every one on
the line and tells them of the ar
rival of an extra mail; announces
that this is the day of a certain
lady's "at home," reminds people
of church services; and .tells of any
message received over the wireless,
etc. He is a regular cyclopaedia of
