According to precedent, Professor
Btoughton should have been fat, buld
tended, neurslghted and shabbily dress
ed; he should have talked iu slow,
deliberate tone; he should have paid
heavy compliments to tho young wom
en, and nt all times and In all places he
should have been absurdly nbsentmlnd
ed. The men of science whom Miss Cov
erly had met heretofore nt the Uren
tons country place had always been
very much of this description staid
servants who sat a horse with us much
grace as they would have rlddeu a rail,
who Infallibly lost themselves when
ever they went shooting und who spent
much of their time reudlug before the
library lire tomes whoso very titles
were depressing lu their profuudlty.
The fact that Stoughton held the
chair of biology nt one of the big west
ern universities seemed Irreconcilable
with his youthful fuce and his nlmost
boyish enthusiasm over the horses and
When he was presented to Miss Cov
erly Just before dinner on the dny of
his arrival, that self possessed young
woman frnnkly told him that ho hud

Stoughton laughed delightedly.
"I've fooled tho world Into thinking
I am u biologist, but between you and
me I don't mind confessing I'm an
overgrown boy," he whispered to her
ns she went In to dinner on his arm.
It was a dinner that Stoughton long
remembered the mellow candlelight,
tho gay banter, but most of nil the
quiet, gray eyed girl beside him, whose
few words were always to tho point
und whose smile was something a god
from high Olympus might well sue for.
All through tho dinner Btoughton,
under tho spell of that smile, whs at
his best. Ills timely repartee and his
brilliant flashes of wit kept the table
In a genial uproar, but when the men
were left to the decanters and the
clgurs he fell Into a brown study, Idly
twirling a spirit glass between ms
thumb nud finger and smiling quietly
to htmBelf as he recalled Miss Cov
erly's white throat and tho pretty poise
of her head.
Btoughton mnnuged to be much with
Miss Coverly during his stay at the
Brentons'. They rode together In the
crisp autumn mornings; together thoy
bent the neighboring coverts for grouse
nud pnrtrldge; they strolled nfleld In
the gorgeous twilights.
Stoughtou, who had never before
given the matter much thought, dis
covered he was possessed of a heart,
nnd the ultemute flushes of hope and
despulr this discovery brought about
gave him ample opportunity for stud
ies In antitheses.
At the end of the second week there

In tho billiard room the men were striv
ing to amuse themselves with much
smoke and an occasional bit of brilliant
pluy. Tho women were endeavoring to
kill time with the latest novels and long
Stoughton sought the library, where
a big log sputtered cheerfully on the
hearth. He drew a chnlr before the
11 ro and, picking up a book at random,
began to read.
There was a sound of light footsteps
on the polished floor, and a quiet voice
''At last you yield to precedent. All
the others read ponderous books be
fore the fire."
Btoughton turned. Miss Coverly stood
at the other end of the fireplace regard
ing him gravely.
"The others?" ho said inquiringly
as he laid the book down.
"The other men of science," she ex
plained. "Did they read bound volumes of
German funny papers?" he laughed.
"Don't tell me," she snld In shocked
tones, "you are rending tho Fllegeude
"Caught red handed," ho confessed.
"You seem to have no respect for
precedent," she pouted.
"You told me the other gentlemen of
science who camo were fat and bald
lieu (led and vague as to Ideas. Tell me,
have I grieved you very much In not
following tho precedent In these
"Not tremendously," she laughed.
"Look hero," bo said suddenly, "Did

"Goodness! What an absurd ques
tion I" said she.
"Did they?" he persisted.
"Well, you see, my er chief desire
Is not to follow their established prece
dent," ho remarked pointedly.
The girl flushed; the professor came
a step nearer. The girl retreated; tho
professor advanced sturdily. In a cor
ner he caught her and held her fast
"Contrary to precedent," said he
evenly, "I shall ask you to marry me."
There wus a long silence. Then Miss
Coverly lifted to 'Stoughton a pair of
eyes twinkling wickedly.
"And contrary to precedent I shall
say" she began and paused,
W'Whut will you say?" ho begge
"Now now, If It's contrary to
dent, can't you Imagine what I sbull
say?" she asked urchly.
Mrs. Brerjton came Into the room just
"Wo ueed Miss Coverly for a four

I long, Professor Btoughton, do you In
j tend to monopolize her society?"

In his and faced the smiling Intruder.

At a meeting of the Board of
Supervisors held at Honolulu on
May 28, September 10 was decided
upon ns the date of reopening for
the schools. The following busi

Babbitt read the Hilo Teachers'
Union petition for assistance in the
development of agricultural studies
by furnishing farming tools and an
cxnert teacher. He said that ns
there were no funds, the Union
ought to be advised that nothing
could be done at present, though
the plan was a gqod one. I'nrring
ton thought the matter should in
the future be brought before the
Mrs. Deacon of Waialua asked
for a leave of absence in order that
she could accompany a sick relative
to the Coast, and that one of the
older pupils could be her substitute.
This was granted, and after some
discussion as to whether Mrs. Dea-
con or her substitute should have
the vacation salary for June, it was
decided to give it to the former.
A petition from Miss Josephine
Deyo to close school at Hilo 911
Thursday instead of Friday, and to
hold school on June 1 1 instead, was
Inspector King wrote that eight
Kohala teachers wanted to pass
their examinations at their hom.e,i
district as it was expensive to travel;
to Honolulu or Hilo. It was decided
to arrange sucl examinations at
Kohala if possible. It was the con
sensus of opinion that the examin
ations should go to the teacher
wherever possible, instead of forcing
the poorly paid teachers to travel.
The following recommendations
from the Teachers' Committee were
That the application of Miss
Alice Winter for transfer to Hama
kua be considered favorably.
That the application of Mrs. Clara
L. Tulloch lor principalship of
school be placed on file.
Politics on Maui are beginning tq
warm up, and as is well known
Main never takes a back seat in
politics, writes the Kahului corres
pondent of the Star. The Republi
can rolls are open in nll.the precincts
of the island, and the backbone of
the country are coming forward nud
announcing themselves. The Home
Rule-Democrats have their eyes
open also and are watching their
opponents closely. It is said that
W. H. Comwell will be their
nominee for senator, and that T. B.
Lyons will be put up for Supervisor
for Wailuku. The Republican
nominee for supervisor for Wailuku
district has not been announced as
yet, although their names are being
put forth tentatively. T. M. Church
will, without doubt, be again put
up by the Republicans of Makawao
district, and he surely deserves elec
tion for the good work he has done
for the county. W. H. Henniug
will again be the Republican candi
date for Lahaina no doubt, but who
his opponent there will be has not
been announced as yet. Nothing
has been heard yet from Molokai
and Hana, but the present super
visors from those localities are in
line for renominaVjon, and will have
strong backing. All of the present
county officers will be up again for
renomiuatiou, vitu possiuiy one or
two exceptions, but there are going
to be other aspirants for several of
the offices also, and much wire pull
ing will be done between now and
convention time. Edgar Morton of
Makawao would not be averse to
making the run for the sheriffship,
and there are several others with
the same bee in their bonnet, and
in fact this seems to be the most
sought after job of the lot. The
Republicans are still looking for a
good mau to run for senator, the
best name mentioned so .far being
that of R. A. Wndsworth of Wai
luku. Wailuku district claim's the
candidate this yeur, and the nomin
ation of Mr. Wndsworth would
satisfy that claim, nud also the
better element all over the island.
However, it is too fnr nway yet to
I make predictions.

There is evidently something big
doing in the way of development of
the walcrs of the Wnimea river on
Kauai for the purpose of generating
power. A couple of leases which
have been filed in Honolulu for
record, show that the use of the
surplus water of the river, the
building of a dam, and the genera
tion of electric power, is in con
templation. One of the documents referred
to is n lease between Francis Gay
and Aubrey Robinson of Mntfa
weli to the Kekaha Sugar Co.,
whereby the latter for a payment
of $7500 a year, is given the right
to use the surplus water from the
VVaimea River below the junction
of the Waialae stream at, a point
mutually agree upon. The lease is
subject to the condition that the
Kekaha Sugar Co. must not take
from the river any water to which
the Waimea Sugar Co. or others
may be entitled.
The second document is a lease
by Frauds Gay and Aubrey Rob
inson to the Kekaha Sugar Co.
whereby the latter concern is gran
ted the right to the construct and
operate a drain, or ditch or tunnel,
or lay pipe or flume from the point
in the Waimea River agreed upon.
The lease is made effective until
December 25, J917.
The Kekaha Sugar Co. unices
to pay $500 a year for the lease
and to be responsible for the value
of any stock that may be killed or
crippled by falling into its ditches.
It also agrees to build e cemented
dam across the Waimea stream in
place of the present dam at the head
of Peekauai or main Waimea ditch,
so as to prevent any loss of water.
