On Friday, October 6, a very
successful meeting of the Hilo
Teachers' Union was held in the
Hilo Union School, there being
forty members and seventeen visit
ors present. President L. C.
Lyman presided. After the open
ing prayer the rollcall wasansweted
by quotations from Mother Goose's
rhymes. The minutes of the May i
meeting were read and adopted, as
was also the financial report for the
past year. By unanimous vote the
annual fee for membership was
fixed at twenty-five cents. The re
port of the Book Committee was
given and adopted. The ballot for
officers resulted in the election of
Mr. C. Swain for President, Miss
Ward for Vice President and Miss
M. I,. Ueyo for Secretary and
Treasurer. Upon Miss Dcyo's de
clining to act the President declared
Wm. McCluskey elected as he had
received the next highest number
The day's program was com
menced by a Third Grade class
chorus conducted by Miss Esther
Miss Deyo was called upon to
state the educational value of
Mother Goose's Rhymes, as classic
nursery rhymes are now generally
termed. Popular opinion strongly
favors their nse in teaching little
ones. Children s love ot them is a
wholesome and profitable one.
They appeal to and develop the
sense of rhyme, cultivate the imag
ination and hold the attention.
They often introduce nature les
sons. 1 uey lay the toundation of
the vocabulary and enlarge it.
Many possess real literary merit.
Miss Deyo made many valuable
suggestions helpful to teachers re
garding devices in using rhymes.
Mrs. Carpenter with a class illus
trated the teaching of reading by
the phonetic system. The sounds
of the letters were taken from
sounds heard in nature and woven
into a story which was told to the
children. Words were formed by
combining the sounds, and the
words were used in sentences.
Phonetic teaching secures clear
enunciation and children learn to
help themselves in studying out
From the receiving room Miss
H. Hapai had a class in nature
study on the mosquito. With
specimens in view Miss Hapai drew
from the class and told in simple
and attractive form the life habits
of a mosquito, where her eggs are
laid, how and when hatched, the
various stages of its existence, the
evils attending its presence and
some precautionary measures in
guarding against the pests.
Miss Mary Deyo gave her ex
perience in teaching the mosquito
to a first grade class. The teach
ing began with the larvae in a
glass, the children observing and
drawing, then describing by actions
or sentences what they learned.
Closer observations were made by
a magnifying glass, which resulted
in better drawings and descriptions.
The habits and evils of mosquitos
After recess Mr. McCluskey read
a paper descriptive of county gov
ernment and outlining the woik as
it might be taught in the various
grades of the public schools.
Inspector of Schools, Mr. C. K.
King, who was present was called
upon for an address. Mr. King
complimented the Union on their
good meeting. In his remarks he
emphasized the teaching of lan
guage. Kvery subject should be
made a language lesson. Children
should be taught to think quickly,
talk correctly and freely. The
course of study should be followed
' closely and in all work teachers
j must review and drill, then review
land drill. Nature studies are very
important. Frequent excursions
should be made to industrial as
well as natural points, and the
teacher should not take too much
for granted concerning the child's
knowledge of places visited. Col
lect and classify specimens. Man
ual training should be practical.
The physique and bearing of child
ren should be improved by deep
breathing and chest exercises. The
effects of alcohol and tobacco re
quire careful handling. Hula airs
should have no place in the school
room. "We must save the girls
and boys," urged the speaker in
Miss Dillon read a paper on "The
Country Teachers' Opportunities "
Work should be made practical so
as to convince business men that
schools really do prepare children
for life work. Have children see
that school education is only the
merest beginning. There should
be a circulating library and news
papers in the school. Cultivate
the appreciation of beauty. Let
the teachers be fair, courteous and
kind and the moral tone of the
community will be improved. This
is the highest purpose of schools.
The next meeting is set for Dec.
8, with L. Maltcrre, Miss Maby
and Mrs Westervelt to prepare the
Any one who has ever experienc
ed the excruciating and almost un
bearable pains incident to infiama

know that prompt relief may be
had by applying Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. Mr. D. Snyder, of
Rooseville, Ontario, Canada, says:

matory rheumatism for the past
two years and unable to sleep at

dies but must say Chamberlain's
Pain Balm is the best liniment I
have ever tried." For sale by Hilo

"An American whoso home was In
Kentucky, but who did business In
Cincinnati, wan traveling In Japan and
was considerably perplexed that ev
ery oue who met him on the street
should nccost him with the word
'Ohio.' Ho was of 1111 old Kentucky
family and, like most ICcntucklans,
was proud of the state of his nativity.
Tho second dny In Japan, when ho wns
met with the name greeting, he turned
to his Interpreter and wild:
" 'What In tho unme of nil that Is
mysterious makes these Japanese think
that I came from Ohio? Kveu If I
did come from that state I would not
want to havo It thrown up to me con
tinually.' "Ileforo tho guide had a chance to
reply n young man passed and again
saluted the American with an 'Ohio.'
"The Kcntueklan turned on the Jap
anese young man and said:
" 'See here, sir, you havo made n
slight mistake. I nm not from Ohio.
I live ucross tho river. I am a Kcn
tueklan, and my home Is In Coving

Male ostriches biittlo for supremacy
and admiration of the females with as
much ferocity as stags, bulls, buffaloes
and other animals. An ostrich buttle
is amusing, as It amounts practically
to a Itoxlng match with the feet, 111
which the males dance around each
other lightly. There Is this difference,
however; If any boxer could hit as
hard us an ostrich with one of his feet
he might settle tho championship with
a single blow. It must uot be supposed
that the ostrich will not strike his an
tagonist with his terrible beak. In
sparring tho ostrich stands on one foot,
with tho other foot and wings rulsed,
bill vldo open and neck distended, lie
strikes with the forco of a trip hammer,
and In lighting both birds warily dodge
blows. Under modern training an os
