THE 0RICINOFTHE FIRE.
Policeman No. 1JJ David Kulaikoa
on that beat came past Wolfe's
store and saw a light in it Ho
looked in and snw a flro in the
middle. JIc called out for the next
policeman No. 17, Mull, who came
as also did No. 15, Uka. They
burst the door open and one wont
to the Station House to give the
alarm while the others got buckets
and went to the water taps to get
water to extinguish the fire. Not a
drop could be had from any of the
taps in any of the neighbouring
In the meantime Captain Mehrtcns
appeared on the scene and the alarm
was given.. By this time almost the
whole of the store was on fire. It
will be seen by this that the criminal
negligence of the Government in fail
ing to extend' and increase the water
supply was the solo cause of the
greater part of the damage. If wa
ter could have been obtained the
Jiro would have been put out in a
few minutes after its first discovery.
THE KINDERGARTEN SCHOOL"
under the superintendence of Miss
Sara King assisted by Miss D.
Bishop gave yesterday morning, an
exhibition of the studies of the
pupils and their proficiency. Quite
a number of frieuds were there who
watched with interest the bnppy
faces of the children as they ex
perimented on the joyous knowledge
contained in Frocbel's six gifts or
sang little songs or marched and
performed their imitative tactics and
evolutions. As a sample of a rational
system of education for children the
exhibition was decidedly a pleasant
success. The amount of practical
observation that the pupils must have
done to be able to do their exercises
iu form, number, and order on the
different Cubes etc., which form the
series of gifts and the interest which
can be excited in children's breasts
even in the ordinarily dry detailsof
drill and discipline rellect the great
est credit on the principal and her
assistant. Eighteen pupils were
is a delightful vale in the upper por
tion of Nuuauu Valley to the right
of the Halfway House, and a little
beyond it. It is of interest as being
the spot whence pipes will be laid
from the mountain side to the upper
reservoir, thus keeping the water
free, as much as possible, from limit
and dirt. Picture to yourselves slop
ing grassy mounds leading to the
foot-hills and apparently as uninter
esting as possible to the eye from
their uniformity. This is the aspect
from the road. Leave the road and
clamber over these, knee-deep and
sometimes throat-deep in grass, un
til their summit is reached and look
down. Instead of being merely spurs
of the foot-hills there is a narrow
gulch between you imd them.
Through this meanders a narrow
gurgling brook, clear and limpid,
overhung with fern, ti-tree, ' uiul
On the slopes above it the dark
green of the Ohia contrasts beauti
fully with the pale, greenish, cream
colour of the Kukui. A little to the
right the stream has been artificially
divided, and one branch ti icicles over
rocks, every here and there widening
into little pools which swarm with
the funny-looking oopu ( u fresh
water fish) and filially in rainy
vteuthcr dashing down an abrupt de
clivity about SO feet into a beautiful
pool below. The air is fragrant
with Nature's perfumes and all
around is like a scene of enchant
ment while to add to the beauty of
the view, far away lies "the busy
haunts of men," fair Honolulu, and
its harbor teeming with vessels, nnd
beyond the sapphire ocean. Such is

The Estella went aground yesterday
