The roll call was responded to by

ing were read and adopted.
I Miss Lilinoe Hapai had n class of
I first year children from her school
I at Waiakea witli whom she illus
i tratcd her method of teaching
number to 'ten' by using the
"gtotip" as a unit. Objects were
grouped, sometimes by Miss Hapai
and sometimes by the class while
the little ones told whnt thevsawor
what was done, as "I saw three 2s
of shells," "you have four 6s of
stones," "two 5s of seeds nnd five
5s of seeds are seven 5s of seeds,"
"you took away two 9s because
there are only four 9s now and
there were six 9s at first, "three
times two 7s are six 7s," etc. etc.
The lesson was much discussed. It
teaches children to recognize a
number in the group without count
from "one." When asked how
much nine and eight are children
often begin to count from one in
stead of counting from nine eight
1 more. It prepares for better work

; addition of long columns. It helps
, also the language. The child not
knowing more than ten can handle
any number ol objects to 100 by
grouping them as nine Ss etc.

lustrated by a few experiments the
pressure of air as it acts on the
barometer and the pump.

from Hakalau reviewed the work

The Examiner of Nov. 20 says:
Claus Spreckels is seriously ill at
his residence on Van Ness avenue.
About a mouth ago he had a stroke
of paralysis in the tongue. A day
or two ago he suffered a second '
stroke. It nffected his vocal coids '
and he can hardly speak. Several 1

their time with him during the past
Owing to the nature of the trouble
and their patient's 75 years, the
physicians are very much worried
over his condition. Mr. Spreckels
recently returned from the East and
Europe and his family and friends
were much rejoiced over his ap
pearance of good health. The two
strokes of paralysis have therefore
come as a great shock to them. Mr.
Spreckels has always been of a
robust physique, which, together
with abstemious living, may have
the effect of aiding in his recovery.
It is generally known in banking
circles that Mr. Spreckels always
keeps on hand more cash than any
other capitalist on the coast. Bank
ers always consider him the wealth-'
iest man on the Pacific Coast, with :
H. E. Huntington n close second.,
Much of his wealth is in San Fran-
cisco realty and building improve-'
ments. Since 1895 he is credited
with investing in real estate and
building- about $6,000,000. In bis '
recent gas and electric light deal he '
got $6,400,000. ,
The story ol his life is a familiar
one. He is a German by birth, and
in the early days was the keeper
of a grocery store in San Francisco.
He was also interested in a brewery.
His first big start was in the manu
facture of sugar, particularly in the ,
handling of the Hawaiian article.
As his business grew and he ac
cumulated wealth, the sugar trust
tried to dictate to him and finally
fought him. 1
He fought back by going into ,
the heart of the- enemy's country
and building an immense plant in 1
Philadelphia. At one time he stood '
