Hawaii has been a center of mis
sionary and civilizing influence to
numerous groups of Pacific Ocean
Islands. Her schools have prepar
ed many who have carried the torch
of the gospel to other Islands and
neonles. In another respect the
schools of Hawaii have been an ex
ample to the world in a direction
that is "only now beginning to be
iustlv appreciated. The schools of
Hawaii from Uie first were manual
training schools. Not that they
went by that name, nor indeed was
that characteristic appreciated as

Whether the 25th of December
which is now observed as Christ
mas Day, correctly fixes the period
of that year when Christ was born
is still doubtful; although it is a
question upon which tlicic has been
much controversy. Many students
of history think that the 25th of
December docs not correspond
with the actual date of the birth of
Christ and they regard the inci
dent of the flocks and shepherds in
in the open field, as recorded by
St. Luke, as indicative of summer
rather than winter. The incident,
it is thought, cannot have taken
place in the inclement month of
December, and it has been conjec
tured, with some probability, that
December 25111 was chosen in or
der to substitute the Christian
festival for the festivals of Bacchan
alia and Saturnalia which were ob
served at this season.
Sir Isaac Newton says that the
Feast of Nativity and most of the
other ecclesiastical anniversaries
were originally observed at cardinal
events of the year, without much
reference to the dates of other inci
dents which many of them com
memorated, and the exact dates of
which, by lapse of time, it was im
possible to ascertain. Thus the
Annunciation of the Virgin Mary
was placed on the 25th of March,
or about the time ot tlie vernal
principle, in the
which, men in our own time have
gained great reputations. That
principle was the instruction nnd
training of the youth in knowledge
and habits of practica industry. In
the boarding schools established by
the missionaries for the Hawaiian
youth, the boys supported them
selves by their own industry. They
raised the taro and other food they
ate. They tilled the soil, and they
often built the very school houses
in which they were instructed and
the houses in which they dwelt.
All that Booker Washington has
clone at Tuskogcc, the missionaries
did in Hawaii, and thought so little
ol it beyond its obviousness that
they have never received the just
credit due them for originating and
carrying out a principle of educa
tion that is only now coming into
its rightful place in the philosophy
and practice of instruction for the
Ilpidemlc in Yiniplo Valley.
A curious epidemic is reported from
Wolpio gulch, Hawaii. It appears that
the residents of that section have been
attacked by a strange sort of fever, which
