A WATER-TUBE BOILER.
; " The Bnbcock and Wilcox water
'"tubo boiler, which is now being in
troduced in the Kingdom, is said to
be more economical in price than
those in general use, using less fuel
and being more easy of trausporta-
Jb tion. One of these boilers bos been
already purchased by the Reciprocity
m Suirar Comnanv. and two more are
shortly expected. It is used ex
tensively in refineries in New York,
Philadelphia and Boston, and on
plantations in Cuba.
We take the following account of
its construction from a catalogue:
"It is composed of lap-welded
wrought-iron tubes placed in an in
clined position nnd connected with
each other, and -with a horizontal
steam and water drum, by vertical
passages at each end, while a mud
drum connects the tubes at the rear.
; The openings for cleaning opposite
the end of each tube are closed by
hand-hole plates, the joints "of which
are made by milling the surfaces to
accurate metallic contact,, and are
f 1' held. in place by wrought-iron forged
clamps and bolts. . They are tested
and made tight under a hydrostatic
pressure of 800 pounds per square
jiheh, iron to iron, and without
. rubber packing, or other perishable
Bubstanccs." The agent in.Honolulu
is Mr. W. E. Rowell, and informa
tion can also be obtained from Mr.
FORT STREET SCHOOL.
In Room three, that of Miss Kin-
;ney, we also heard several of the
class give, from memory, a summary
Pf? of the parts of speech of the English
fV 'language. Other pupils were asked
to point out any mistakes that had
been made, and they were readily
acknowledged by those who hud
made them. The meaning of the
elements of a sentence was explained
by the pupils, who gave different ex
amples illustrating what they said.
?We ascertained that "no parents or
-visitors" had been to this room dui'-
;gi -ias the term. The class was pro-

vto'.the division or this room, the
teacher is supposed to teach "four
teen classes a day" ; she teaches
Geography and "Map Drawing."
, Several very good specimens of
maps, drawn oy tne pupils, were
hanging framed upon the walls, no-
;tably those of Africa, North and
South America. Robert Graham
gave an excellent idea of the plot of
Macbeth, and in lus'account he made
the very snge remark that, "Portia
feiif" "wasn't the wife of Bassanio, when he
S;Tvanted to get the money." He knew
; that Shakespeare was born on tne
'Avon and in the sixteenth century.
i;Hc had only seen Macbeth played
Jtpnce, when he was four or five year's
! old, but remembered what had been
told him, some time last term by
his teacher. We also heard some
good exercises on adverbs, clear

given. The old story of Alfred nnd

ascertained that all pupils were pro
emoted once a year, but that an ex
ception had been made in the case of
a boy from Australia, as it was found
.thattho was far advanced and excep
tionally well taught for his years.

When tho game is through they nil

The next room is in charge-of
Miss Whitney, who takes the class
temporarily until the arrival of Miss
Winter. There were thirty three
pupils present, nine of whom were
in the third grade and twenty four
in the second grade.
Our next visit waB to Room One
which contained the first grade.
This is in chargo of Miss Mossman
who had two classes, thirteen in the
higher ono and twenty, all new to
the school, in the lower class. A
bell was touched and one class came
to the front in perfect order. Tboy
were put through their usual lessons
in counting, forwards nnd back
wards, from ,1 to 100. There was
not one mistake made. They were
then taught how to. make two, by
putting one and one together. The
same was done with threes, nnd
fours and lives.
Several numbers were given to
the children to write on their slates,
which were submitted to us, and
almost all were done accurately and
with great neatness. We were told
that there had been "a few visitors
to this room" during the term, that
pupils were promoted "at anytime,"
that Geography was "not taught, by
direction of Mr. Scott," that "no
music had been taught this year,"
that a little drawing was "taught
from charts," and that "Swinton's
reader" was used, and that the
children learned to spell from it.
The inspection of this room was
the most pleasing sight that we had
seen in cither school. The class of
little children, all of whom were
clean, neat, tidy, attentive to their
work, and obedient to the orders
given them, can not easily be for
gotton, and reflects the highest
credit upon their teacher.
The second ' grade, with twenty
eight pupils, is under the supervision
of ,Mrs. Needham. The children
were engaged in an Arithmetic
lesson, and subsequently wrote
letters on the blackboard. We saw
very little work in this room as the
time for recess had arrived. We
noticed on a blackboard a roll of
honor, which contained the names of
the twelve best pupils for the pre
vious week. This roll is altered,
from week to week, as occasion may
require. No music, or drawing is
taught in this room, but lessons in
Geography are given from text
books and outline maps.
This concluded our visit to the
Fort Street School, and we have
pleasure in saying that, what we
saw and heard, more than realized

Editor Bulletin: On the even
ing of the 10th inst., some persons,,
nnticipajuigatreat, made a purchase
from one of the ice cream carts,
which arc becoming so numerous, of
what was vended for ice cream.
The "cream," however, was found,
upon tasting, to resemble poorly
flavored, and not properly sweetened,
frozen corn starch. I suggest to
the vendor that he change the name
of the article from that of ice cream
to that of " frozen starch," or some
thing at least in keeping with tho
quality of tho article, as otherwise,
some "wrong" person may, ono of
these days, get fooled, and let him
in, under the law prohibiting the
vending of spurious and ndulterated
food. The vendor mh-ht save him
self, legally, however, by advertising
that " a little of his cream will go a
long way," as was tho case in this
instance. This advice is gratis,

Editok Bulletin : Frequently
noticing that in your paper, mention
has been made of the bad condition
of tho roads in different parts of the
island, and having also remarked
that improvements have been made
suli8cqitcnt to thoso remarks, I am
led to ask for your aid in drawing the
attention of tho public and the
Government to the road through tho
marsh between Ilee'm and Hceia-ken.
This road is constantly' being
travelled over by plantation carts,
daily, and is in such a bad condition
that the water on each side of the
road ripples with the vibrations of
iho carts. Numerous holes, ruts,
nnd rough stones make it pleasant for
the feet of the horses. To crown
all, though heavy road, taxes arc paid
in the neighborhood, nbt a dollar
has been expended for three years
on this section of the road. It is
said that other reasons than, economy
or shortness of funds have been the
cause of this. Hoping to see a
speedy improvement is the
